New Rates, Offerings and May 2017 Specials

So many people have asked about my new May 2017 rates, offerings and specials, in part because they want to know whether or not to purchase the April Specials. I wasn’t going to announce these until May 1, but in case even more people have questions, I’ll post these with a few days left in April.

I’ve not raised rates or radically shifted my offerings in ten years. After much prayer, synchronicity and consideration, these changes reflect frequent requests for services I don’t normally offer, as well as 16 years of professional session experience, teaching, speaking, and written support. At this time, I’m not changing my Reiki or Tarot offerings. The new rates and offerings affect any intuitive or coaching services that are not Reiki or Tarot based. You can find those (lower) rates and descriptions by clicking through the links above.

For the months of May and June, I’m also going to experiment with an email option as a Monthly Special, since so many people want to send me “quick” questions. Those “quick” questions are usually not that quick, since they still require an intuitive tune-in, energy reading/interpretation, and then the time it takes both to read their email and to respond. Previously, I have referred people to my blog or my books for general information, or a private phone session for specific information, but some people prefer email. I do not want to spend even more time in front of a computer, especially with my intended shift to writing books again once we get settled in our new place; however, of all the requests, email sessions are highest on the list. I’ll see how this option goes for May while it might actually be easier to fit in around packing, and then see what, if anything, needs tweaking after our move in late June.

Please scroll down for the May 2017 Specials, which are listed after the new rates and services.

NEW RATES AND OFFERINGS EFFECTIVE MAY 1, 2017

These services include anything related to:

  • Medical Intuition
  • Mind-Body-Spirit Readings
  • Soul Readings
  • Past Life Readings
  • Life Purpose/Life Path
  • Any kind of Coaching (life; career; relationship; transition; strategies for children, workplace dynamics, and/or aging parents; chronic health issues; awakening creativity, etc.)
  • Designing Personal Rituals for maximum shift of subconscious and energetic factors
  • Messages/Communication to and from deceased loved ones
  • Helping to discern effective spiritual practices and daily habits
  • Timeline Shifts

(If you would like a service not listed here, please inquire. There’s so much overlap with skills and techniques that the above list represents the most common, but not the only types of sessions offered.)

Rates:

20-Minute Check-in: $90

40-Minute Intuitive or Coaching Session: $177

60-Minute Intuitive or Coaching Session: $222

PROPERTY CLEARINGS AND RELOCATION BOOSTERS

This is a previously unadvertised service, which so many people have found so beneficial that I’ve decided to make it public. This service can be used for:

  • Clearing properties or spaces of negative energies and hostile influences
  • Preparing homes for sale and removing unwanted attachments to old properties
  • Blessing new homes, properties or work spaces
  • Smoothing details of relocation and supporting synchronicity in the search for a new home or office
  • Raising the vibration and increasing the positive influence radius of your home or work space
  • Blessing gardens or public spaces
  • Creating spheres of protection around your environment
  • Dedicating spaces to support certain goals or intentions
  • Creating a healing sanctuary or supporting sacred space

(If it’s not listed but seems related, please contact me for options. This process involves a combination of a Reiki Healing Attunement, Runes, specially determined timing, and any supportive symbols, crystals, etc. depending on the individual situation. It’s more complex and specific than a Reiki Healing Attunement, but that technique forms the foundation of this process.)

Rates:

$77 per location or specific intention

$200 for 3 locations or intentions (i.e. if you need to sell one property in order to purchase another and also want help finding a new office; if there are multiple properties involved; or if you anticipate needing this service again sometime)

PERMACULTURE CONSULTING

In addition to seven years of intensive gardening experience and research, I completed my Permaculture Design Certificate in January 2017. “Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design principles centered on simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems.” This certification allows me to:

  • Help individuals or groups incorporate perennial vegetables and edible trees/shrubs into ornamental landscapes
  • Design properties for beauty and abundance
  • Assess ways of becoming more sustainable with your current set-up
  • Offer general instruction on permaculture principles (not the full PDC course)
  • Insights and resources for enhanced soil fertility, companion planting and multi-season harvests
  • I also work closely with Nature Spirits, Faeries and the Elements. If desired, my consultation can include ways of tuning into your own land and enhancing harmony with other beings who share that space with you.

Rates:

Half-hour phone consultation (if applicable): $90

Other services and rates will vary depending on the situation and if it requires in-person visits. Please contact me with details about your specific needs, location and requests.

MAY 2017 SPECIALS

20-Minute Email Check-In for $77

As mentioned above, this special is an experiment since so many people request email support. Twenty minutes usually covers one or two questions or issues, and it includes my time reading and replying to your email, plus the time spent tuning in and interpreting any messages I receive, along with providing links (if applicable) for further details and information. If you have more complex questions, you can add time. Available if prepaid on or before May 31, 2017. Depending on how this goes, this special might become a regular offering, but we’ll see, as I prefer life away from the computer. Please contact me to sign up.

Mentoring Package for Counselors, Therapists, Energy Healers, Coaches, Social Workers, and Alternative Medical Professionals

With sixteen years of professional experience under my belt, I’ve spent over a decade mentoring clients and students in similar or complementary fields. This has previously occurred as individual coaching sessions or classes, but for May 2017, I’m offering a package deal to support people wanting to take their business to the next level.

This package includes:

  • Four hours of career coaching, which can include tips for enhancing your own intuition to help more clients and recognize business opportunities, aligning with the “Cosmic Scheduler” to achieve work/life balance, embracing higher visibility, and helping clients and students find you without needing to resort to heavy duty traditional marketing and social media
  • Two 20-minute Email Check-Ins between phone sessions
  • Reiki Healing Attunement to amplify goals, clarity and alignment

May Special Rate:

$626 (Save $471.55 over individual services)

Offer valid if prepaid on or before May 31, 2017. Please contact me to sign up.

Competing Realities and Crisis Mode

I can’t reblog this post another time, but it wants to go up again: “El Mundo Bueno. Remember that no matter how dire things seem, the “Good Reality” remains available and infinitely, intimately close for those willing to reach for it. I mentioned on April 24th that yes, the energies have been very, very intense for many people. As I said to David tonight after another round of emails requesting sessions or reporting current challenges, “The Universe is turning up the heat, driving in the nail, tightening the screws.”

Talking the talk without walking the walk is getting really difficult. Engaging in co-dependent behavior patterns that prevent others from learning their lessons or taking responsibility for their own lives now occurs without the energetic support of the Universe. If you continue to insist on maintaining that which no longer serves, you’ll find it much harder to do so, because you’ll be swimming upstream, going against the grain, p!ssing in the wind, and cutting yourself off from Divine Inspiration. You’ll still experience Divine Intervention, but that string pulling will not support inertia. That pot stirring will not cement stagnation.

By contrast, these chaotic times offer so much support for positive change, realizing dreams, and moving beyond old limitations and denial. Change takes courage, but we now live in the time of which Anais Nin so beautifully wrote:

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

Live the life your soul longs to live. Take that step you know you need to take. Listen to your body when it screams, “Enough is enough.”

It’s about bloomin’ time!

Lunaria and Fancy Tulips

This Lunaria comes all the way from Bealtaine Cottage in Ireland! Well, the seeds did. I got them from Colette a few years ago, and the Lunaria has finally found its favorite spot at Faery Hof:

In Case You Wondered … Yes, the Energies Have Been Intense!

I keep getting emails, questions in sessions, and private texts from clients, friends and family asking me what the heck is up with the recent energies. Yes, they have been VERY intense! Some people have been using these energies as rocket fuel for positive changes. Others have felt overwhelmed by sudden health crises, major relationship flare-ups, mandatory evacuations, and “out of the blue” switcheroo’s.

I personally am doing very well, with lots of super synchronous opportunities appearing and requiring openness and readiness for change. I know many people have had their worlds rocked in the past two weeks, though, because I’ve heard about it in sessions. I coach a number of therapists, and they also noted a major uptick in crises, emotional outbursts and addictive relapses, especially since Easter. It feels like a big cleanse, in which the old gunk temporarily recirculates before its full release. It also feels like a time to go inward, and many people feel they simply cannot maintain the external obligations of a previous status quo.

Although my own life is going well, I had not one, but two, family emergencies last week, plus an onslaught of panicked correspondence from various people. To summarize, we’ve got four planets in Retrograde right now, including Mercury. You can find ways of dealing with Merc Rx by clicking here. Since April 9, Saturn, the cosmic task master, is moving Retrograde at the Galactic Center until August 25th, and we’ve got all manner of collective machinations ranging from civil unrest to World War 3. If you’re at all empathic or even the slightest bit conscious, such things exert influence on your life. The trick is to observe, consider (or reconsider) your options, and then commit (or recommit) to whatever makes your soul sing.

It really can be that simple. What step, right now, feels right in your gut? What brings surprising relief whenever you consider it? What choice, right now, supports those deep inner longings and desires that never seem to go away? What action, right now, aligns you with your path? With all these planets Rx, keep in mind that the next step might be a step backwards — a time to clean up, clear out, or review. If you cannot pass Go without taking this step, then stop resisting it. Use these strong Rx energies to focus on what demands attention before moving forward.

When choppy waves appear, we can drown or learn to ride them. We can throw ourselves to the sharks, or find our balance and glide with exhilaration. This is not a time for indecision; it’s a time for extreme presence, moment by moment. If you can’t make out the bigger picture, that’s fine. Just get clear on how you’d like to feel and then make micro-adjustments throughout the day to edge you closer to that feeling.

If you’d like extra support, please don’t hesitate to request a session. Big waves=big potential for lasting change.

Surf’s up, Lovey’s! Hang ten.

Angels, Spirit Guides and Pets

This 2008 post wants to go up again. So often animal friends announce and confirm answered prayers. I always tell people, “When you pray, expect an answer. Don’t forget to ask for the ability to recognize those signs and guidance.” Animals can also guide and nudge us in the right direction. They’re wonderful triggers for Shadow Work, courage, and unconditional compassion. If your furry, scaly or feathered friend has been acting strange lately, see if anything here sparks a realization.

Laura Bruno's Blog

If you have recently asked for help, guidance and protection from angels and/or spirit guides, you might notice your pets acting rather odd.  Perhaps they seem agitated, nervous, or extra loving to you.  Maybe they look confused or seem extra needy.  You might even find them staring at you with questioning eyes, almost as if to say, “Hello?  What do you want me to do here?”  If they continue to receive no guidance from you, they may soon exhibit signs of frustration, even though you find nothing wrong.

(The Annunciation, by animal lover Leonardo da Vinci)

Under the circumstances, such behavior actually makes sense.  When you “invite” or “invoke” help and visitations from angels, animal spirits and other spirit guides, you probably don’t “see” such beings surrounding you.  Indeed, most people admit that seeing an angel would make them question their sanity!  Even those who want to see something before believing in it, often secretly prefer clairaudient messages to clairvoyant…

Garden Update ~ Tulips, Trillium, Trout Lilies, and Trees

More blooms from the ever evolving yard! Today’s flowers celebrate the letter “T,” and represent just a small smattering of bee and butterfly delight. Yes, some hungry pollinators have already found our yard. In addition to the wild trillium I saved from a destroyed woods a few years ago, we’ve also got trout lilies from the same woods, along with still massive amounts of dandelions, plantain and wild violet, courtesy of Nature herself. I thought I’d share some of today’s more stunning displays:

Behind those peachy beauties, you can see the later blooming magenta yarrow, which has become its own tough competitor in the colorful riot to dominate this permaculture haven. Continue reading
