Happy (Quantum) Leap Year!

I awoke this morning from a dream in which I identified the Hagalaz Rune to a former college professor of mine. He had begun to show me his latest research, found in a rare book with an ornate Hagalaz on the left page and a “picture” of an infinity sign made of bees on the other side. I put picture in quotes, because the bees buzzed around, keeping the infinity sign in living, breathing motion. “That’s Hagalaz!” I said to the professor, “Do you know what that means?!” I stared, transfixed by the bees, watching how their energy engaged the Rune, making it, too, seem to dance upon the page.

Hagalaz Rune

My professor disappeared for awhile and returned with an envelope that read, “Please don’t ask me questions about the limits of my research in MY class.” The word “MY” was capitalized and raised, as if by layers and layers of magazine cutouts of that word, taped to the envelope. I realized that he had no idea what he had discovered in purely academic research. He sensed I knew more about this topic, but he didn’t want to look unscholarly in front of his students. I stared at the bees and the now vibrating Rune, marveling that the professor could actually care about his ego more than the miracle we held in our hands.

Hagalaz is one of those Runes you kind of hope you can avoid. Common interpretations include “harsh agent of change,” “hailstorm,” “loss,” “the hag,” “crisis and catastrophe.” Hagalaz is to Runes what the Tower Card is to the Tarot. It means big time change and acknowledges the sometimes traumatic aspects of that process. According to Ari Berk, as written for Brian Froud’s “The Runes of Elfland,” “When we endeavor to change, we walk the parallel paths of creation and destruction because nothing ends without something arriving to take its place. [The hag’s] nature is that of the hailstone levling crops, yet changing to water in time, a thing most necessary for future growth.” (p. 103)

In keeping with the hail theme, Hagalaz has another form called Hagal, which I often included in portal doors. It looks like a six pointed snowflake, and I used to call it my “create a new Universe Rune.”

Hagal Rune

According to http://Runes-for-Health-Wealth-Love-Now.com, “RUNE-HAGAL is called the MOTHER OF ALL RUNES because she gives birth to the Consciousness Of One within you.” I love Rune-Hagal, especially its emphasis on harmony; however, the Hagalaz form showed itself in my dream, not the pretty snowflake form. When I awoke, I glanced up from the bedroom window and noticed two squirrels working together to build a nest just at the level of the attic I asked them not to inhabit this winter. They did move, relocating themselves outside, but what I noticed this morning was their gathering of leaves and twigs. I watched them for ten minutes or more, enjoying the careful gathering and placing of tiny branches. At that moment, I got a strong hit to consult “The Runes of Elfland.” Sure enough, the Rune story for the Rune of Loss makes much of the hag gathering twisty branches — a further emphasis on the dream Rune’s Hagalaz aspect.

In “The Book of Runes,” Robert Blum associates Hagalaz with “Disruption,” “Elemental Power,” “Hail.” These sound harsh, but he goes on to remind us: “Change, freedom, invention and liberation are all attributes of this Rune. Drawing it indicates a pressing need within the psyche to break free from constricting identification with material reality and to experience the world of the archetypal mind.”

Tyriel of Rune Secrets explains it this way: “Don’t try to fix what we should break before it breaks us.” “Hagalaz is the rune of objective confrontation with past patterns. It will uncover the vast flow of energies around and through human energy systems. Its nature is completely impersonal and it represents power generally beyond human ability to harness. … Hail shocks you with stinging hardness (confrontation) then it melts into water which creates germination of seeds (transformation). The ancients describe hail as a grain rather than as ice, thus creating a metaphor for a deeper truth of life. It contains the seed of all the other runic energies and this can be seen in its other form, a six-fold snowflake. Spiritual awakening often comes from times of deep crisis.”

Sound familiar, anyone? 2012 energies for sure! But what about those bees? Well, last night, I had asked the faeries to do some work on my teeth and any structural paradigms that needed shifting in my sleep. Bees have close associations with faeries and the Divine Feminine. When I painted doors 11 and 12 in 2010 in Canada, a shaman came to see me at my request. I had been “told” I’d find the right one there, and sure enough, synchronicities connected us. On her way to my location, a bee got trapped in her car and stung her cheek. She said that had “never happened before,” and she took it as a sign of bee medicine needed in my healing. She proceeded to remove “an entire hive” from my heart. Apparently, the bees had been working diligently on my heart, but their temporary “hive” had gotten stuck, even though they’d completed the original healing. She spent an hour, carefully extracting honeycomb pieces, freeing the bees as she did so. It was a potent healing, and I’ve felt closely tied to bees ever since.

As some of us know, bees indicate the health of ecosystems worldwide, and the bees are dying. Scientists have presented explanations from pesticide use to cell phone tower frequencies, but in truth, we don’t really know why the bees leave. I plant flowers to attract bees in my garden, and I talk with them whenever they arrive. According to my favorite shamanism site for dream interpretations, “Bee’s Wisdom includes:

Connection to the Goddess Diana

Understanding female warrior energy

Reincarnation

Communication with the dead

Helping earth-bound spirits move on to their proper place

Concentration

Prosperity”

So … some interpretations of bees swarming in an infinity symbol, could mean infinite prosperity, infinite reincarnation, infinite removal of limitations that keep people bound to 3D reality, a return to an infinite sense of the Divine Feminine permeating our world. Plus a warrior willingness to fight for these things! Coupled with the Hagalaz Rune, the bees feel like pure potential for a quantum leap for those willing to set aside limitations imposed by ego. Now is not the time to fear looking stupid for not seeing sooner with the higher perspective becoming available. Sure, we will all probably have moments of “OMG, I can’t believe I ever bought into that!” Some people will choose denial over facing Truth, no matter how liberating Truth can be. “The Truth will set you free,” only sounds appealing to people interested in true freedom, which includes taking responsibility for your own beliefs, emotions, thoughts and the reality these create.

Someone (I think it’s Abraham, but not sure) said, “Belief is simply habitual thought.” In other words, we can change beliefs by redirecting our thoughts. “Truth” can shift as we decide to shift ourselves, as long as we don’t get stuck on looking “right” about negative “facts” that our former beliefs produced — because when we change our beliefs, the facts will absolutely appear to change. In “fact,” they will change, which means some formerly “right” interpretations will no longer fit. We will have grown beyond them!

Hail can pummel plants, but it also waters the ground from which they grow. As we move deeper into the energies of 2012, we continue to face the challenge of freeing ourselves from all that’s come before, or hunkering down and grasping to the old. As Rune Secrets reveals, “Hagalaz can be used as a force of repulsion or banishment. It is used in work to process and dispel the effects of subconscious baggage and ‘shadow elements’ so that your life pattern can carry itself forward in its pure form. Hagalaz has the magical energy of a ‘spring cleaning’.”

On February 29, 2012, we’ve gained an extra day, a leap year day in a year of quantum leaps. As I type this post, the sun shines brightly and the squirrels are upgrading their nest. We stand at the split of two worlds … a world in which all sorts of regulations and restrictive laws take effect on March 1 … or a world of infinite breakthroughs and radical discontinuity. Just like the Tower Card with its tossing of old paradigms into the sea, we have the power to embrace such change, thereby softening the blow.

We can harness that usually un-harnessable force and redirect it to hopes and dreams that need more fuel. We can choose which parts of our past we wish to bring forward, and we can reevaluate those relics that “society” told us to forget. As Ari Berk explains, “[The hag’s] realm includes those portions of Elfland most often lost to the modern world; the frontiers of crumbling kingdoms, the plains of forgotten epics, ruins, mead halls, stone circles, barrows, and the landscapes of ancestral memory. She inhabits all places where we forget to ask, ‘What happened here?’ She pauses at every hearth-side where a story is begun but left unfinished.” (The Runes of Elfland)

What’s your story? What’s our story? We’re at a potentially radical plot juncture. How and where would you love to arrive? Happy Quantum Leap Year!

Much Love!

Past Lives and Parallel Lifetimes

My friend Sherri sent this video to me a few weeks ago, and I’ve been saving it to post here. People often ask me “how it looks” when I view clients’ past lives, parallel lifetimes and various timeline trajectories. The answer, of course, depends on the individual and the circumstances surrounding their questions and/or health issues, but this video illustrates things better than I can explain in words. I hope you enjoy it! “How Many Personalities Are You?” Many, many more than you believe — a fact that offers incredible opportunities for quantum leaps and new timeline options:

How to Remove Google and YouTube History Before March 1

New privacy policies for Google and YouTube take place on March 1, 2012:

“On March 1st, Google will implement its new, unified privacy policy, which will affect data Google has collected on you prior to March 1st as well as data it collects on you in the future. Until now, your Google Web History (your Google searches and sites visited) was cordoned off from Google’s other products. This protection was especially important because search data can reveal particularly sensitive information about you, including facts about your location, interests, age, sexual orientation, religion, health concerns, and more. If you want to keep Google from combining your Web History with the data they have gathered about you in their other products, such as YouTube or Google Plus, you may want to remove all items from your Web History and stop your Web History from being recorded in the future.”

Please click here for step-by-step Big Brother removal instructions.

Since Google now owns YouTube, the new Google Privacy (Not!) Policy also allows them to track and exploit your YouTube viewing and search history. Please click here for help removing that pesky Big Brother.

As someone whom Google/YouTube decided to unjustifiably censor by completing shutting down my YouTube account without notice or any actual copyright infringement at all, I would just like to say, “Empower yourselves.” Incidentally, that was the message of all my videos, which told my own story of recovery from brain injury and shared how to “Maximize Your Brain Function” — tips from my own life and/or from my professional experience as a Medical Intuitive and Life Coach. My other video series, called “Synchronicity, Intuition and Intention” likewise shared tips on how to empower yourself by tuning more into Source and flow. The only other video I had posted showed and described my first painted portal door and suggested that learning about Runes could awaken subconscious healing and power.

Google/YouTube decided my own story and experience somehow infringed “repeatedly” on someone else’s copyright. The fact that helping people to tap into their own intuition, the power of raw foods, signs and symbols is considered a threat tells you something about Google and YouTube. I actually took it as a high compliment that they refused to reinstate my account despite their lack of evidence.

Anyway, I find them, shall we say, distasteful … and I take a wee bit of pleasure sharing how to bypass some of their ridiculous new methods of control. In addition to visualizing freedom, I rather enjoy dancing on the soon to be old fashioned relics of censorship and corporate pigs. “To market, to market … jiggety-jig.”

Your Right to Preferences

This theme keeps coming up in coaching and intuitive sessions, so I thought I’d mention it here. If I hear it so often in private sessions, then lots of others are likely experiencing it, too!

In a nutshell, you don’t need to feel guilty for having preferences. We live in a vibrational and co-creative Universe, which continues to birth and rebirth itself according to desires. Yes, desires, preferences, hopes, dreams … without them, the Universe would stagnate. Preferences are not only a Divine Right, but also kind of a Source Mandate. Source, God, the Universe, whatever you want to call it, expands in response to your desires. Each time you hone a desire or discover a new preference, you tweak the manifestation instructions you present to All That Is.

Sure, people, governments, religious authorities, and schools sometimes tell you your preferences are bad, evil, unwarranted, or crazy, but that doesn’t change the fact you have them. I don’t mean to give license to harm other people — oftentimes the repressive preference squashers are the ones secretly harming others! Those who manipulate via guilt, shame, ridicule and diminishing do not have your best interest at heart, so why allow them to make decisions for you? Why allow them to create your life instead of you?

If someone laughs at your preferences or tells you that you’re wrong or selfish for having them, take a moment to explore why that person even cares. What investment does that person have in whether or not something brings you joy, frustration, or sorrow? Does that person really know you better than you know yourself? And if so, why would you allow that to continue happening?! You’re a fabulous, intriguing, amazing, deep, diverse, and interesting person; I guarantee it. If you don’t see that, then it might be time for some proactive cord cutting, followed by a quiet, healing meditation and/or journaling. Get to know yourself! Get to know what makes you tick. In order to Follow Your Bliss, it helps to make note of what feels like Bliss to you.

As we shift from 3D to whatever and wherever we’re shifting, vibration becomes even more important. If you allow yourself to whither in someone else’s limitations, then you rob not only yourself, but the collective reality as well. Why not co-create something you truly love? Why not expand yourself in joy and jubilation? Your growth grows the Universe. Your ability to maintain a positive, exciting and Spirit filled life frees others to do so, too.

Preferences can range anywhere from types of food you like, to qualities of relationship, degree of sexual compatibility, financial ease, the kinds of clients you wish to attract, boundaries in business, weather … no limitations here! You can’t talk yourself out of preferences. Repressed preferences will rear their heads at the most inopportune times, so you might as well acknowledge and honor them upfront. Knowing what you want will also help you avoid the following common and unfortunate relationship dynamic:

Someone really, really wants something from you. In this example, let’s say they want you. They want you to commit to them, and in exchange they offer you something that’s important to them but not necessarily important to you. From their perspective, they’re giving you the world, and you darned well better appreciate it. You, on the other hand, just don’t really feel that attracted to them, or, for whatever reason, you just don’t feel the same way about the proposed exchange. Because they have given you their “stuff” and lord that fact over you, you begin to feel like you should feel different about them than you do. You might try to convince yourself that your preferences are superficial, stupid, or unenlightened. You might try to convince yourself that attraction and compatibility don’t really matter as much as unconditional love.

Just to clarify: you can unconditionally love someone and not desire to marry them. You can unconditionally love someone and choose not to spend much time with them. You can unconditionally love someone, wish them well, and yet still honor yourself by listening to your own sense of what feels balanced. Just because someone gives you something they value, doesn’t require you to place the same value upon that something. You have a right to your own, unique preferences, and if a relationship fails to match up, you can choose to walk away, or redefine the nature of that relationship. If the other person starts calling you names, guilt tripping you, or otherwise stomping on your sincere efforts to attract win win situations for all involved, then you’ve just received a clear indication that you are not receiving unconditional love, no matter if you’re giving that or not. Guilt works as a primary manipulative tool.

This dynamic can occur in romantic relationships, business trades, expectations between clients/customers and providers, higher education, and any other encounters you have with someone who may not share all your preferences. Clear communication helps, but in fairness, that needs to go both ways. If someone expresses what they want, and you know that you are either unwilling or unable to meet those preferences, then sharing that information allows you to maintain integrity in the relationship with the other person and within yourself. As we shift further away from duality, split intentions will become increasingly difficult to bear. Recognizing early signs of incompatibility and taking proactive steps to redefine relationships or to extricate yourself from imbalanced situations will speed your ability to shift into a newer, cleaner, easier reality. The more people who take responsibility for the world they wish to co-create, the freer world we’ll find.

If you choose to Follow Your Bliss, then Bliss will choose to follow you. From that higher vibration, you will create and attract an extraordinarily inspiring life. You will become the change you wish to see in the world. And I promise you, you will find kindred spirits who celebrate with you and for you. Lonely is feeling obligated to love someone or serve someone in ways your heart and Spirit won’t allow. Nothing feels lonelier than telling your authentic Self to settle now and wait for next lifetime. You’re not here to reiterate the status quo. In case you haven’t noticed, default reality on Earth hasn’t been a resounding success. That’s why all the structures and illusions have begun to fall away. The New Earth won’t build itself without your input. You vote with your vibration, and the higher your vibe, the better your world. Want freedom? Free yourself, and watch what happens.

I love you.

Update from David Wilcock About Today

Over the past few months, I’ve mentioned David Wilcock’s book-length internet exposé, Financial Tyranny: Defeating the Greatest Coverup of All Time. Thanks to Kauilapele for the ongoing news, posting and commentary on these and other events.

I decided to share David’s Friday, February 24th Update today, because he mentions today, February 26 as a targeted date for “the next 9/11” false flag event. He also highly doubts it will happen and shares some cool stories about Divine Intervention preventing all those aggressive attempts to start WWIII. No less than 40 examples exist, although he shares a story about three isolated instances that just gotta make you smile. David also suggests meditating and keeping your vibe very high today. You can send energy to the Earth, visualize freedom, peace and love … you know, the usual fare for readers of this blog.

Personally, I think the old game is up, and the new arriving daily for those of us who know better. My David (not Wilcock) says, “As the new arises, the old shall fall away.” The Emperor wears no clothes anymore, and all those old guys planning their dastardly deeds outta put on some bathrobes and reconnect with Source before things go even worse for them. George Soros, Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, Bushies, gangster/banksters … um … your plans are showing — and they don’t look good!

I’m spending February 26, 2012 teaching an all day Reiki Master Teacher Certification Class for some lovely souls, and we will dedicate a portion of this class to World Harmony. I can’t think of too many higher vibe ways to spend a day than initiating future teachers who can spread Universal Life Force Energy and Divinely Directed Healing Energy (aka Reiki) to their own students. Today is also the birthday of artist, healer, animal lover and high vibe queen, my dear friend, Tania Marie, so Happy Birthday, Tania! And Happy Healing, World. You deserve it. We all do. Let’s bring this change!

Here’s David Wilcock:

UPDATE FRIDAY 2/24 — YOU CAN DO YOUR PART!

I’m here in Hawaii and am about to start a 16-hour CONVERGENCE lecture weekend — my most ambitious ever, with 1175 slides in total, meaning I have to do 73 slides an hour to stay on schedule. I’m very excited about it — there is a lot to talk about!

The Internet is exploding with lists of major financial industry CEOs who are resigning, mostly just within the last month. The silence from the mainstream media about this is deafening.

I have heard there are 10 different cases in the US, on a very high level, and they’ve already fled to Brazil and Paraguay. These are NOT in the lists circulating on the internet — at least not yet.

This only adds further evidence to support the idea that “Something Big Is About to Happen” — namely the mass arrests of so many conspirators.

I have heard leaks from the inside that the “Next 9/11″ is being planned for February 26th. The negative elite are hoping to bring America to its knees by doing something that will turn the power off so it can never come back on.

I consider it very highly unlikely that these plans will succeed, due to the remarkable number of “Divine Interventions” that have been happening lately to throw off any and all attempts to start World War III.

I do believe ETs / Angelic humans are real, and apparently the rules have changed radically.

John Kettler has recently stepped forward and is giving incredible testimony that supports what I’ve been tracking for the last year and a half on this website with the “China’s October Surprise” story. Kerry Cassidy’s recent interview with him is fascinating.

Over 40 different attempts to start World War III have been thwarted in the last 2 months by “impossible” means.

For example: three different times the Israelis and Palestinians have tried to have an all-out shooting war, but their guns jammed on the battlefield. Then when they took them back to the gunnery range, they worked just fine.

Why do you guys think you will be allowed to destroy the United States power grid on February 26th with all the other signs that this is Game Over?

Anyway, I hope you all have a nice weekend. Meditate on the positive and stay peaceful and centered to help offset any possibility that this nefarious plan will succeed. I highly doubt it has even the slightest chance of doing anything.

I thank you again for your continuing support!

Oh, by the way… I had to laugh as I logged in to write this update and AGAIN got a synchronicity. This time the hit counter was at 218555. I have to be timed down to the second for this to work, but consciously I have no idea!

[Laura here again. Gotta love those number synchronicities! Please join us all as you feel called to add some extra lovin’ to the mix today in whatever ways feel best to you. We live in exciting times, and we are privileged to live on the forefront of positive change. Thank you all for becoming the change you wish to see in the world. It’s happening! Much love, Laura]

Raw Food Frenzy

My, my, my … it’s a good thing raw and living foods provide so much energy! Sure, they take extra prep time to replicate gourmet yumminess, but they do pay it forward. I’ve had such a busy week and the next weeks and months just keep looking busier. All good, exciting stuff, though!

As I sit here drinking a Reishi Mocha Chaga Hemp Banana Coconut Water smoothie, I’ve got sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds soaking for late afternoon pâté creations to top salads during tomorrow’s Reiki Master Teacher training lunch break. I’ve got sundried tomatoes soaking in water for blending with homegrown basil and oregano, plus Roma tomatoes to make a raw marinara sauce for our spiralized celeriac. Have you tried celeriac (celery root) noodles? I love them even better than zucchini noodles — slightly crunchy and less watery. We’ve got olives to chop for tapenade, more tomatoes and chives to chop for a cumin tomato tartar topping for, get this … raw, vegan, gluten-free Rosemary Garlic Bread, which is currently tantalizing us in the dehydrator. An afternoon trip to the co-op will bring us some cukes and greens for a side salad, and we’ll top off this Italian raw feast for friends with some Reishi-Chaga-Lucuma-Cacao gelato. Total experiment, but I have high hopes.

Somewhere in there, it will be collard ribboning time, to make a simple side salad of olive oil, lemon juice and Celtic sea salt intended to accompany the soon-to-be-chopped root veggies we’ll throw in the oven towards the end of tomorrow’s RMT class. Non-linear me goofed and booked an evening session after all-day teaching, so I will much appreciate the speedy sustenance. Teaching Reiki always makes me hungry.

Other goodies on our plates or in our fridge?

Last weekend’s channeling host treated us to some of “Caroline’s Handmade” raw flax crackers and sundried tomato cashew dip — possibly the best dip we’ve ever tasted. Yes, it was that good, and no, it’s not technically in our fridge right now. We finished that the following morning. 🙂 We’ve got sprouted, dehydrated buckwheat groats, should the “cereal” craving hit. Our freezer holds some Violet’s Violent End blueberry pie from Shazzie and David Wolfe’s “Naked Chocolate” book. Always a favorite for guests and quick snacks! I gifted my copy to a formerly “cooked” chocoholic, but I’ve made that recipe so often, I have it committed to memory.

After last night’s channeling event, I scarfed an entire bag of Rhythm Superfoods “Zesty Nacho” Kale Chips, followed by our locally made Fizziology Kimchee served on avocados. A yummy return to Earth after all that ethereal stuff. 😉 We’ve also got homemade kefir awaiting frozen strawberries and vanilla stevia for OMG wowness! Perhaps a new favorite, among so much vibrant deliciousness. Of course, none of this would feel complete without fresh green juice, and thank heavens our co-op makes such economical and tasty blends. You can’t really buy produce, juice it and clean up for much less than a freshly prepared (by someone else!) Cucumber-Celery-Parsley or Inner Peace juice. Despite all evidence to the contrary, I remain forever and always, a Lazy Raw Foodist.

Just sharing some days in the life … Cheers and Love!

A Sad Day for Manipulators

But they’re learning!
