laurabruno:

Lovely! So glad to see Cnawan’s back to blogging, and how wonderful to know that Robert Bly has a new film out. Thanks for this!

A PROFILE OF THE POET, TRANSLATOR, ACTIVIST, VISIONARY ROBERT BLY.

“It’s all right if you grow your wings on the way down.”
― Robert Bly, My Sentence Was a Thousand Years of Joy: Poems

I shook hands with Robert Bly this evening.

A friend of mine was asked to be the photographer at a private screening of the new film about Bly’s life, “A Thousand Years of Joy”, and this friend was kind of enough to ask me to tag along as his assistant, as he knew I would enjoy attending.

The screening was at a small, private theater that maybe sat 50-75 people.  It was a full house of Minnesota literary notables and Bly’s friends.  My friend and I watched the film from the sound booth after we were bumped from our standing room only space by none other than Garrison Keillor of Prairie Home Companion fame.  Literally bumped from that space, as…

Mandatory vaccination: California is ordering genetic alteration

laurabruno:

About once per week, I receive an email from someone wanting to move to California, requesting my opinion on such a move. Ummmmm, well…. where to start?!

It’s not my place to tell anyone where to move or not, but pay attention to what’s happening there. If you live in CA and you don’t support SB277, then (please!) do something about it, or remove yourself and your tax dollar support, or both. Between the geo-engineered drought, the near bankruptcy of the state, all the surveillance, regulations, expense, and most importantly, this vaccine ATROCITY, all I can say is that I left in 2010 and haven’t looked back, despite still having dear friends, relatives and clients who live there.

Seriously, if you’re in CA or plan to move there for some strange reason, then now is the time to step up and speak out. The phrase, “not on my watch” comes to mind. If you live there, guess what? It’s your watch. They say, “As California goes, so goes the rest of the country,” but, to that I say, “Not on MY watch” where I live. Complete silence and willful ignorance are taken as agreement and permission. Do YOU consent to this? If not, then how do you intend to bring that non-consent into a ***tangible***, do-not-cross line in the sand? You can work things on multiple levels, but doing nothing means you’re choosing. Make sure you can live with what you choose, because the level of information available now renders the “I didn’t know” excuse completely null and void.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men [, women and children] do nothing.” Are you a good man, woman or child? Are you doing nothing?

Therefore, California is mandating genetic changes

Governor Jerry Brown just signed SB277 into law in California. No more religious or philosophical exemption from vaccination.

Now only a medical doctor’s note stating a person should not be vaccinated will provide an exemption—and you can be sure doctors who sign a number of these notes will be tracked, scrutinized, harassed, and attacked by the State.

SB277 requires all children who attend public and private schools to receive the full schedule of vaccines.

Home-schooled children can opt out of vaccination. Pay attention, parents.

I’ve written many articles about vaccines, about their dangers, their undeserved reputation for having eliminated contagious diseases in the West, and the absurdity of so-called herd immunity

July 2015 Specials, a Three-Day Tarot Special, and Two July Reiki Classes

July’s specials reflect the month’s energies and clients’ requests. Even though I am very busy, I’m also feeling led to offer a three-day only Tarot special (details below). Please know that I don’t have any immediate scheduling availability, but for whatever reason, I feel called to radically reduce the price for just three days, between now and the 4th of July. I’ve also got not just one, but two upcoming Reiki classes this month, so please see below for all the different offerings.

JULY 2015 SPECIALS

$222 Mini-Coaching Packages

With so many people feeling pressured to shift right now, I wanted to offer a chance for extra, sustained support. Several clients have recently used up their mini-pack from the last time I offered this special, so it seemed like a good time to resurrect it. This three-pack of half hour sessions represents a $52 savings over the usual rate. Sessions can be scheduled weekly or as needed. They can address anything from career changes to relationships to esoteric skills, potential relocation, past life issues, and/or health concerns.

$222 if prepaid on or before 7/31/15. Please contact me to sign up.

$77 Medical Intuitive Readings

Lots of healing in the works these days! As such, the second July Special is a Medical Intuitive Session sale to help support people getting over that healing hump.

Medical Intuition is the ability to access information about physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health through reading the energy field around the body. A Medical Intuitive Session decodes the message(s) from soul to body into language your conscious mind can understand and begin to address. (It is not meant to replace traditional medical treatment, but rather to empower your healing via whatever modality you ultimately choose.) Medical Intuitive Readings are normally $175 per hour or $90 per half hour.

Medical Intuitive sessions purchased today through 7/31/15, will be discounted to $77 per half hour, which can be doubled or tripled for longer sessions.

Please contact me to sign up.

THREE-DAY TAROT SPECIAL

Well, someone must really want or need a Tarot Reading, because I’ve been getting a non-stop nudge again to offer an extra-special Three-Day Special of a 30-minute Tarot Reading for $33.33. Yes, that’s a lot of three’s! I only very rarely offer these, so if you’ve wanted some extra guidance at a very discounted rate, these are available for 40% off the usual $55.55 between now and 1:33 p.m. East Coast US time, Saturday, July 4, 2015. I’m curious to see why I feel so strongly about this one, since it brought some really fascinating readings and synchronicities the previous times I ran it. When Spirit speaks, I listen, so here goes. Please contact me if you feel this Special is listed for you.

Note: Special runs for three days, but the session can be booked after that time. Actually, as I explained above, I don’t have any immediate availability, so the sale is for three days to lock in the lower rate; however, the actual session(s) would need to occur later next week or after July 20th. Limit of 3 per person. Please contact me to sign up.

REIKI CERTIFICATION CLASSES

Usui

Reiki Level 1 Certification Class in Allentown, PA — Saturday, July 18, 2015 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

This class will be hosted by my sweet, artistic, all around awesome sister, Erica, at her private home. The class will also be catered with freshly prepared, gluten-free and vegan food via generous donation of chef and blog reader Mel. We still have a few spots open in this workshop, but the early prepay discount deadline is July 4th. More details here, or contact me to reserve your spot. This is a great opportunity for anyone in the Northeast or even the DC/Virginia area, as I don’t often teach this close to your neck of the woods!

Reiki Level 2 Certification Class in Goshen, IN — Friday, July 24, 2015, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

I hadn’t intended to teach a Level 2 class in Goshen until this Fall, but some of the students from the June 20th, Reiki Level 1 Certification Class here got so excited about Reiki they didn’t want to wait until September or October for training. Due to my own busy schedule and weekend activities, this one’s happening on a weekday.

This interactive class includes:

• Reiki Level 2 Attunement.
• Experiencing Reiki energy.
• Discussion of 21-day cleanse.
• Establishing a Reiki practice.
• Different qualities of Reiki energy
• Hayashi Healing Guide discussion.
• Clearing rooms & cleaning crystals
• Chakras and healing.
• Mental/Emotional Balance technique
• How to send Reiki thru time & space
• Legal Responsibilities as a Reiki Practitioner.
• How to amplify Reiki energy.

At the end of the training, each student will receive a certificate acknowledging completion of Reiki Level 2, as well as recognition as a Reiki Level 2 Practitioner. Taking any Reiki training with me also qualifies each student to audit (at no cost) any additional Reiki classes taught by me, up to and including the level completed with me (space permitting).

Rates: $250 (if prepaid by 7/10/15) or $275 closer to the class.

Please contact me to reserve your spot.

Taking Back Our Food: Establishing a Food Co-Op in the Community

laurabruno:

Whether you hope to bring a new food co-op to your own community, or if — like many natural foods co-ops — your local co-op is currently struggling to redefine what it is, why it exists, whom it serves and how it stays in business, Willowcrow provides her usual astute analysis and exploration of the issues. Many thanks to Willowcrow for continuing a discussion that’s at the top of so many established co-ops’ radar. If you live somewhere without a food co-op, see if you can find some like minded locals at least interested in starting a bulk buying club for difficult to find organic foods. Empowerment begins with individuals addressing areas that need attention.

Just one of the many delights at a local co-op- organic, heirloom lettuce Just one of the many delights at a local co-op- organic, heirloom lettuce

I remember the first time I visited a food co-op.  It was in Ann Arbor, Michigan, a wonderful, progressive town, and the co-op was incredible.  From products made or grown locally in South-East Michigan (non-GMO and organic tortilla chips, fresh salsa, all kinds of fruits and vegetables, raw chocolates, kale chips, soaps, baked goods and so much more) to regionally available products (like tofu, organic candy bars, raw milk cheeses, and even miso). It was an exciting place to be. All of the food I could have wanted to buy in one place, and that food was better, healthier, and fresher.  That food also paid a living wage to its creators.  The prices were fair, the atmosphere pleasant, the workers in the store friendly and helpful–and most important–happy to be at work.  I made it a…

Oracle Report ~ Monday, June 29, 2015

Although posted yesterday, the following Oracle Report speaks to potent energies and alignments through this Wednesday’s Full Moon in Capricorn. Some people have even been calling this Jupiter-Venus alignment a “Return of the Star of Bethlehem.” Having grown up in Bethlehem (PA), with its huge star on the small mountain overlooking the city, I find this intriguing, but I’m not personally anticipating any imminent “return” unless Project Blue Beam gets activated. Here’s a short video describing this “superstar” effect happening today, although the narrator indicates “no effect on Earth or human affairs.” I guess time will tell. Meanwhile, enjoy the view, and do your best to make the most of these alignments!

Oracle Report ~ Monday, June 29, 2015

Gibbous Moon in Sagittarius: trust, magic

Goddess of Wisdom: Bagalamukhi (The Goddess Who Solves)

God of Wisdom: Ian (God of The East)

Skill: grasping truth when it glimmers

True Alignments: evolving mindset, reaching out, shifts in perception, the ability to laugh at oneself, creating harmony, tuning in to a bigger picture, noticing and acknowledging the skills/talents/uniqueness of others, inspiring greater things, connections

Catalysts for Change: illusions, reactions from instinctual nature, arguments that lead to stalemate, spreading disharmony/fear, distracted from mission, denial, in over one’s head, meaninglessness

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “winter frost in the woods”

Sabian Symbol for Solar-Lunar Year: “the music of the spheres”

A beautiful and remarkable thing has begun in the starry skies and is building through Tuesday night. The planets Venus and Jupiter are moving into the same “place,” shining a beacon as they converge at the degree of the Sabian symbol “a carrier pigeon fulfilling its mission.”

Clarity about direction, course, senses, intuition, beliefs, information, and assessments is delivered. The energy that is building provides guidance and information — special messages that guide.

The energy is “exalted” somewhat since Jupiter is involved. Jupiter teaches us things that stretch our minds, so whatever is happening now is designed to bring things to a much higher and expanded level.

Since Venus is the other planet involved, energy is added to what we value and love, taking those things to new levels as well.

This lofty event has a caveat. The conjunction of Venus and Jupiter makes an astrological aspect with Uranus. Uranus’ goal is always to change, adjust, or align us with what is in our highest and best interests.

We are just beginning to grasp the expanded perception, awareness, and insight that is on tap until the Full Moon and the Venus -Jupiter conjunction overnight Tuesday (exact conjunction of Venus and Jupiter is Wednesday, July 1 at 3:33 am ET/7:33 am UT). Until then, the magic of the Gibbous Moon phase continues to flow.

Thank you for supporting The Oracle Report – Laura Walker

Big money: pump and dump as a way of life

laurabruno:

Another excellent piece by Jon Rappoport — this one explaining the difference between capitalism and what he calls “meta-capitalism.” As Greece and Puerto Rico default and economists pontificate about likely ramifications, Jon puts it all into the larger context of the big, rigged poker game and how that game is played.

“Imagine this: you want to buy and own Product X, which is valued at $10,000. You’re in a rare position. You can make that product sell for $1. You can do that. Then you can buy it and own it. In fact, you can do that with lots of products. Now, instead of products, imagine you can do that with whole companies, with industrial sectors, and even with large chunks of nations. You can spend $1 instead of $10,000. But wait, there’s more. You can re-inflate what you just reduced to $1. You can make it worth $10,000 again and you still own it. You can go…

Last Two Days for June Specials

JUNE 2015 SPECIALS

This month’s specials reflect requests and sharing from recent sessions and emails. The two specials actually complement each other well, since positive (yet dramatic) timeline shifts can feel a bit bumpy, while Reiki helps to smooth and ease transitions. Singly or together, I hope you find this month’s offerings supportive of the intense energies, longings and opportunities continuing to explode on the scene these days.

Timeline Tune-In and Tune-Up

This hour session helps you to recognize your likely trajectory based on current energy patterns, intentions, and habits … and then, I search for the closest parallel reality versions of “you” with very slight differences that lead to more preferred (and more varied/greater opportunities for) positive outcomes. The scan and download are actually easier for me to do than to explain here, but if you’ve ever seen the movie “Sliding Doors” with its alternate reality story lines that intersect at certain points throughout the film, I’ll be scanning you for the stickiest intersection points.

The reading gives you a heads up regarding the types of feelings, thoughts and experiences to watch for if you’re looking to sidestep onto a more positive timeline without needing to slog through linear time to get your desired life. These “timeline hops,” “portal points,” “reality jumps” — whatever you want to call them — are not only possible but powerful, and with awareness and practice, you can learn to surf such opportunities, charting your own course from current to next closest to preferred realities.

$133 if prepaid by 6/30/2015.

$77 Reiki Sessions

With all the intensity flying around these days, it seems like a good time to run a Reiki special. Reiki is an ancient healing method rediscovered in the 19th century by the Japanese monk Dr. Mikao Usui. The “Rei” in Reiki stands for “universal” or “spiritual,” and the “ki” corresponds to the “life force energy” known as “Chi” or “prana” in other Eastern systems of healing and energy work such as feng shui, Tai Chi, Qigong, or yoga. Thus, Reiki refers to “universal life force energy,” “divinely directed healing energy,” or “life energy of a spiritual nature,” with an emphasis on subtle energy fields rather than the physical body. By working on all the different levels, Reiki helps the body to relax into a state that allows optimal self-healing.

Reiki sessions typically last one hour and occur at a distance, usually set to deliver while you’re sleeping and most receptive. If you prefer to be awake and meditating during your session, we can also schedule for a specific time that works for both of us. Gentleness and synchronicity are both hallmarks of Reiki sessions. If prepaid by 6/30/15, Reiki sessions are $77 instead of the usual $85. Please contact me to sign up.
