Hurry Up and Wait

“Hurry up and wait” describes so much of the energy these days, especially for people conscious enough to notice energetic waves. Solar flares, whistleblowers, 2012 prophecies, Disclosure, and economic “emergencies”: take your pick. We feel the urgency, the “imminent” changes, and yet life rolls on with very little altered day-to-day. Are we in a full-on economic emergency? Or is the New Economy simply emerging? Think “both/and” rather than either/or, and then prepare to hurry up and wait again.

This cycle of intense hope, radical change, and Spidey-sense tingling anticipation feels almost too much to bear — kind of like later seasons of “LOST.” We see the signs (or are they signs?); we feel like somewhere something must make sense (or did we imagine those connections? Is Ben Linus manipulating us?); we wonder which wolves will turn into sheep, and which sheep will bare their bloody canines, all the while trying to remind ourselves that in a truly enlightened world, we need not fear.

With all this suspense, we run the risk of missing out on the ever-present Now. In an age where time may completely collapse inside itself, might we not want to savor these last linear delays? They say a watched pot never boils, but this one will. It absolutely will boil. And soon. The energy has grown far too intense to simmer down. But do we want to spend all our time and energy watching an inevitably boiling pot? How might we better use this time to align ourselves with those bubbling opportunities? I’ve got a few ideas:

1) Allow yourself to feel the relief. As often as you can muster it, invite the feeling of relief into your experience. If you catch yourself saying, “Be rational. That’s only wishful thinking. I’ve got bills to pay and lack is ever present in my life,” cancel that thought! This kind of thinking turns your burner back on low. How do you expect to boil water over a diminished flame? Indulging in feelings of relief beckons relieving circumstances to you. Imagine the ease of total debt relief and the freedom to pursue your passion instead of just a paycheck. If your pot hasn’t started boiling yet, you can still taste the contents without burning your tongue. Observe the flavor of your creation and tweak the seasonings while you can.

2) Follow the Golden Rule. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Practice random acts of kindness. Pick up litter. Share your bumper crop. Hug a tree. Smile: it’s contagious! Yes, CDC, that’s my kind of an epidemic. πŸ˜‰

3) Speak the Truth in Love. We live in a brainwashed society whose sleeping members have begun to stir. Very soon, we will have millions of shocked Rip Van Winkles feeling emotions and awareness that BigPharma, tell-LIE-vision, and GMO foods used to dumb down. Tempting as an “I told you so” may be, we can finally look forward to some real conversations. You might want to spend some time releasing old resentments about people not believing you. When the TV programming changes, these same people will want to discuss their rapidly changing world view. As someone who has already gone through some of your own awakening process, you know this territory. You can guide gently and with love down paths you’ve already walked. Do you need to rub it in that you got here first, or can you celebrate your ability to help others enjoy their journey?

4) Follow the Usui Reiki Principles. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an ancient healing method rediscovered in the 19th century by the Japanese monk Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki means “Universal Life Force Energy” or “Divinely directed healing energy.” It flows through everyone and everything, balancing and healing as it goes. Reiki pracitioners and Reiki Master Teachers know special techniques and hand positions, but as Earth’s frequency rises, Reiki will become more accessible to everyone.

Before Usui started giving Reiki attunements, he had his students follow him around a clinic and observe his energy. He also required them to recite the following principles in order to re-align themselves with the Universal Life Force Energy. Whether or not you know Reiki, you can embrace these principles for a more harmonious life right now. The following version is based on various translations and much study of Reiki and Dr. Usui’s Original Reiki Ideals:

The secret method for inviting happiness
The miracle medicine for all diseases
Just for today, do not be angry.
Just for today, do not worry.
Express your gratitude.
Devote yourself to your life’s work,
And be kind to every being.

5) Practice Makes Perfect (or at least Much Better). The more we practice harmonious living, the more our subconscious mind makes it so. The good things in life manifest much easier as we allow ourselves to align with relief, the Golden Rule, Truth, Love and the natural flow of healing energy. I encourage all of us to practice these things, “just for today.” We can get angry, worried, frustrated and all those other things tomorrow:

“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”

Sure, we can choose to be Macbeth’s, but in a world of all possibilities why would we ever choose that?

So, yes, “hurry up and wait” seems like the order of the day. But while we’re waiting, why not savor the stew, smell the roses, paint a picture, write a masterpiece, make a snack, make a new friend, or make sweet love? Why not live out loud? We don’t need to wait on the world in order to do that. If I’m alive enough to type, and you’re alive enough to read, then we’re both alive enough to enjoy ourselves. I’m telling you, that pot’s inevitably gonna boil.

So what Now?

Thrive Full Length Video — Free Online Starting April 5

More fabulous news from the maker of “Thrive” … They’ve recovered their cost of making the film and beginning April 5, they will be making the film available for free online:

You can check out their resource-dense website by clicking here. I’m so pleased they’ve decided to do this. Back in December, I actually spoke with a friend of Foster’s, who asked me please not to keep the free version of “Thrive: What on Earth Will it Take” on this site. I explained how I had thought they meant for the message to spread as rapidly as possible. The friend, in turn, explained that they had originally needed to recover the cost of making the film. They thanked me for sharing the video and directing people to their site. I’m so pleased they’ve met their costs and will share this video directly on their website. You can still order the DVD for group showings, but this free access will help share information in a rapidly shifting world.

Many of those people who’ve always scoffed at you for your wild ideas will soon find themselves craving such information and explanations. Thrive offers one way to share some of the darker details of our failing society, along with a huge message of hope for a free and beautiful future.

History Is Being Made

In addition to being a nerdy English Major, I’ve got a real fascination with history. πŸ˜‰ In college, I voluntarily took graduate level history courses, just for fun. French Revolution, the Habsburg Dynasty, the Victorian Empire, Art History courses, the history of Christianity and the rise of Vatican power … you name it, I gathered it. As interesting as historical revolutions are, though, we’re actually in one now. I like to call it a LOVEolution, but whatever you call it, something’s happening. The near complete polarization of politics, intentions and visions simply cannot hold. Something will pop, snap, integrate and/or catapult because so much energy has gathered at the same time so many sleepers have begun to awaken. I’ve never believed that 2012 would be the end of the world, but it may well be the end of the world as we know it.

I feel this is such an important interview to share: 3-28-12 David Wilcock Interview of Drake, β€œan Insider specifically asked by the Pentagon β€˜good guys’ to come forward.” As Vietnam Vet Drake says, “Please do your own research” and practice inner discernment. No need to understand or decide upon everything at one go: sometimes listening to technical details just helps us to realize that knowledge is power. And hope.

David Wilcock and his interviewee have done a good job explaining complexities about the Declaration of Independence, a Nation State, Sovereignty, protecting the Constitution, and US military backing for real freedom, rather than gangster/bankster war agendas. It’s a good place to start, especially if you’ve felt nervous about things like NDAA, corporate personhood, and other draconian laws. Whether you have an opinion on these things or not, I encourage you to listen to this interview with curiosity, which loosens rigidity and eases freedom.

As I keep mentioning, we’ve got tremendous opportunities right now. Informing ourselves of options helps us to gain further clarity on what we’d love to see in our world. I don’t claim to know behind the scenes info myself. I just read energy, and energy continues to shift in both positive and negative directions. Instead of cancelling each other out, though, these energies seem like powerful, distinct choices, and I, for one, keep visualizing and vibing with freedom, love, joy, relief, and peace. I decided to post this information now because this military guy provides so many technical, rational, historical and legal details that he offers a nice sense of grounding for all the “pie in the sky” people intending a beautiful rebirth of Earth. We can work together. We are far more alike than different in our hopes, goals and dreams. Blessings and Love … Laura

For those who prefer a YouTube viewing/listening experience, here’s the full three-hour interview in that format:

Letting Go of Should’s

Today is one of those days. Perhaps you’re feeling it, too. Maybe, as usual, I’m feeling it a bit ahead of the clients and students I’ll be helping through this phase when it hits more of the Lightworker crowd. In any case, I’m feeling it — that “Really?! You have got to be kidding me that this is even still an issue” feeling — sometimes inside of me and sometimes reflected back in naive, yet predictable ebbs and flows into duality by people who “should” really know better.

Ah, the should’s! What good do they ever do anyone? The angry should’s easily get shushed into more focused positive action, but the sad, shaking my head should’s? For some reason, those feel more difficult to release. And so I ask myself again, “What good is a should?” To my surprise, my very own inner Dr. Seuss responds:

A should would be good,
But it can’t so it shan’t.
Would, yes we would,
That our should’s
Could be good,
But they slog in the muck
And they feel oh so yuck.
Just leave them alone,
Go out on your own.
Who cares if that swan is a duck?

My apologies to the good doctor, whose real prescriptions do seem to work:

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

“It’s a troublesome world. All the people who’re in it are troubled with troubles almost every minute. You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot,for the places and people you’re lucky you’re not.”

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”

Thanks, Dr. Seuss, I will take these six and call you in the morning. And as for this: “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” … for today, I will simply assert: “In my world, everyone’s a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies!”

Much better! I think those should’s just pooped out with the butterflies, and butterflies are free.

Three Days Left

Just a reminder that you’ve only got three days left for these two specials:

March Specials

In honor of time collapsing and moving faster and faster, March’s Specials play with the length of sessions. Sometimes people want just a quick check-in, not even a full half-hour — just a little yea or nay confirmation from someone not involved at all in their situation. If this sounds familiar, then the Quickie Tarot may be for you: a 15-minute tarot reading for $33.33. (Save 22.22 off the half hour fee.) I don’t normally offer such short sessions, as I like to have time to discuss whatever comes through, but March feels like a good time to experiment.

I’m also experimenting with 45-minute Coaching and Intuitive Sessions this month. Intuitive sessions can include Past Life or Soul Readings, Intuitive Life Path Assessments, Medical Intuitive Consultation, or any other kind of Intuitive/Psychic service you desire. These fill the gap between issues that require more than half an hour but less than a full hour’s worth of attention. $133: save $42 off the hourly rate.

Everything else seems to be moving faster these days! I’m just keepin’ pace. πŸ˜‰ To schedule, please email me (brunoleaf at yahoo dot com) your time zone and any preferred date or time ranges. I will send you a PayPal invoice. (Offer valid through March 31, 2012, although sessions can be scheduled afterwards.)

Rebounding: Why It Sometimes Works

We’ve got a rebounder in our basement, and it’s getting used. Big time. I’ve had rebounders off and on in my life, and I’ve always found them kind of a drag. I like how they move my lymph, but all those exercises kind of bored me after a (very short) while. For years, rebounding fell into that “I know it’s good for me, but gosh I hate it” category. Lately, though, I’ve started dancing on our rebounder, and not just dancing, but dancing to sacred chants and meditating on our “rebounding World.” I bounce for 25-30 minutes everyday now, having so much fun I need to stop myself after half an hour in order to get going on other tasks.

This healthy habit began as a remedy for empathing my dad’s lymphoma symptoms but it has had so many benefits I don’t even know where to begin. For one, I love dancing, but we have hardwood floors, which get kind of, well, hard after awhile, especially with a sometimes sore sacrum. Enter the zero impact of the rebounder. My back self-adjusts as I bounce and dance, and I’ve managed to cut my chiropractic treatments in half since I started daily rebound sessions. My lymph no longer pools, and I’m not having anymore weird cross-over from my dad’s lymphatic issues. I started making homemade kefir and chaga tea to ease the immune symptoms I’d experience whenever his flared up, and so far so good there, too. All those fabulous enzymes, minerals and probiotics have taken my normally healthy body up so many notches that I’m not even in vibrational range to empath my dad’s health issues anymore. I like to think that my healthy habits somehow traverse back to him, but I have no way of knowing that for sure. I just know that rebounding, kefir and chaga tea make me feel fab.

Groovin’ to MC Yogi has given me a chance to ponder “rebounding” as a concept and how it applies to our world right now. As within, so without. Microcosm and macrocosm. I bounce around, increasing bone density, moving lymph and restructuring my spine as old structures fall away and new ones reconfigure. We’ve had at least 450 high level bank resignations since the beginning of 2012, many high level media, government and banker arrests, as well as over 200 clergy arrested for long past crimes. We’ve supposedly got insiders preparing a new financial system that benefits everyone on Earth, not just a select few. And by “everyone on Earth,” I include Earth herself in there. Permaculture and cleaning up the planet rank high on global tasks in the New Earth. Having escaped near total tyranny in a bad relationship with a psychopathic society, one could say, we are all rebounding. We’re moving to something new, even as remnants of the old continue to fall away.

On an individual level, people often turn their noses up at “rebound relationships,” as though rebounds can never quite match up to a “real” relationship after a subjectively “sufficient” amount of time has passed. True, without a dramatic inner inventory and vibrational shift, most people fail to escape the patterns that led them out of their previous relationship; however, some people do manage to rebound well. By keeping the vibe high, focusing more on qualities they do want than on the traumas they’re leaving behind, these folks manage to launch themselves into something far beyond what came before. Their rebound becomes more of a quantum leap.

As a society, we have the possibility of making a quantum leap right now. Old structures will continue to fall away, but we need not feel bereft or directionless. We can shake it off and use that motion to attract something way healthier and way more fun. We can dance. We can sing. We can rebound, dance and sing all at the same time. Try it! You’ll never dance, chant or rebound the same again, and the higher my energy gets, the more easily I can imagine a brand New Earth. It doesn’t take that much.

Our Basement Dance Floor

As you can see, our basement dance floor is no great shakes on its own. But add some MC Yogi to the mix:

… and you’ve got inspiration for your moves. As you bounce and restructure your own body, your own energy reaches out across the world. “Be the change that you wanna see … in the world, just like Ghandi.” In 2003, Sally Kempton conducted my very first magazine interview, for Yoga Journal. She profiled my brain injury recovery (under my maiden name, Derbenwick) in an article called “Bouncing Back.” When I dance on my rebounder, I sometimes think of that article and smile. How I’ve bounced! (And I’m writing that here at 777 words — “777: You are definitely on the right path in every area of your life. Stay balanced and spiritually aware so that you can continue moving forward on the illuminated path.” ~Doreen Virtue’s Angel Numbers 101)

Having rebounded from many things, many times in life, I know it’s possible to rebound well. We can and will rebuild our world. We can dance!
