Lyme Journal Questions and Feedback

Because a number of clients and regular blog readers purchased Lyme Journal: A Guided Recovery Workbook, I’ve received some personalized feedback and questions during sessions and via email. Two people gave me permission to share since others may have similar questions or experiences.

Reader Mia tried to leave a review on Amazon, but apparently, Amazon only lets you leave a review if you’ve spent $50 on their site in the past 12 months. For most people, this issue never arises, but I understand and support people who do not normally shop on Amazon. It just offered the easiest way for me to release this journal/guidebook in a timely manner. Mia forwarded me her intended review to post here:

The ‘Lyme Journal’ is a wonderful healing support for people on a Lyme journey. Laura Bruno has been working with people who have Lyme for years now, (myself included) and her dedication to this particular group of under recognized and often invisibly ill people, is admirable and much needed.

This book contains pages with questions for self inquiry, insight, revelation and creativity. Most of each page is blank, to journal your response to each question.

I’ve been using it, and find that my responses come quite easily, as if they were just waiting to be asked! And I joyfully read what I’ve written, my heart touched, with a delight, love and appreciation, in how far I’ve come and how much I’ve learned through this cursed/blessed experience. To look at this tremendously harrowing and debilitating illness through the lens of the heroine’s journey, is the most rewarding liberating and enlightening way…and helps to celebrate a blessing in disguise.

It’s also a great resource for people with limited resources and support. I highly recommend this book, and many thanks to Laura.

Old Friends and New Eyes

This week brought dear friends to visit whom I’ve known since 2001, back in my Seattle days. We took our Reiki Master Teacher training together in 2002, and they are among a very small set of people I still know from my brain injury days. When we met, we soon realized we had lived on the same block in Evanston, IL … but two years apart. Unbeknownst to us at the time, Wendy also lived in New York City back in my pre-TBI days when I traveled there every other week for work. Our lives have mixed and almost matched all over the country for decades.

The Hess family moved outside Charlottesville, VA about 17 years ago, and David and I saw artist and engineer, Bill Hess, a few years ago when we still lived in Goshen, IN, while taking care of David’s parents. Bill passed through en route to a glass installation in Michiana, but I hadn’t seen Wendy Vigdor-Hess for 14 years! Bill and a newly pregnant Wendy drove up to PA on one my trips to Bethlehem when I still lived in Tahoe. It was so great to meet their children — Sol and Thea — in person.

We had a whirlwind two-day visit on their way to a long weekend in Chicago. Above, you can see us all in Muskegon, Michigan, where Bill and Wendy got engaged so many years ago. We actually got to see the very spot. I’ve talked with Wendy on the phone during those 14 years apart, but it’s always so much fun when in-person visits just pick right up as though no time at all has passed. Continue reading

Reiki for Smooth Travels

This is a great share from my dear friend, most amazing massage therapist, former Reiki student and now empowering Reiki Master Teacher herself, Pamela Hipp. Everything she shares here is so true.

My last trip to PA reminded me of the perfect timing of a Reiki-delayed flight, too. Because my connecting flight got delayed, I received an emergency email from a lovely UK woman with a dying dog. The vet had told her to prepare for the worst, because nothing was working at all, but she thought to sent one “desperate” email to me. Reiki, prayer, and intuition allowed me to send her the key suggestion that turned things around for her dog, just before UK stores closed for the day. Had I gotten on the flight as scheduled, we would have missed this opportunity. Her miracle dog is happy and doing well now after a very near brush with death.

The few times I’ve forgotten to Reiki my return trip have been a comedy of errors until I ask, “WHAT is going on?!” Then I remember, “Oops, forgot to Reiki this leg of my trip.” Within moments of sending Reiki — literally — everything clicks back into magical, synchronous place. Reiki makes traveling so much fun.

Blessings on your trip, Pamela, and thanks for sharing!

Luminous Heart Reiki & Massage

Pamela: Whenever I plan a trip, I use the long-distance symbol to send Reiki ahead and smooth the way.

Karen: Can you really feel the Reiki when you arrive?

Pamela: No, not really. But my experience has been that I everything is easy and effortless when I prepare with Reiki.

Today is the perfect example. (Synchronicity abounds when Reiki is flowing!) My trip to the airport could not have been any more magical than it was. Generally I have to transfer trains downtown (which is a bit stressful as it’s crowded and hectic) but today the train I started on went straight through.

Someone offered to lift my giant suitcase up the steep steps. (As an empowered, independent woman, I am fully capable of schlepping my own luggage. And as an awakening goddess, I am delighted to accept ALL the assistance the universe provides!) There was…

August 2019 Specials

Happy Lammas and Lughnasadh! In the Northern Hemisphere, we’re halfway through Summer, halfway through Winter in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s a time of “first harvest” or “taking stock.” A time of friendship, gathering, and gratitude. At the very least, we all made it through one of the wildest Mercury Retrogrades in long-term memory! Having felt the pull back to review, rework, revamp and reconsider, we can now move through the season with more clarity and new opportunities.

As always, this month’s specials reflect client requests and my sense of what would most support people in the current energies.
