Reverence for the Void

I’m reposting these wise words and beautiful video shared by Faery sis Tania, as it goes along with my dream yesterday, as well as offering encouragement for so many I know who are grappling with deep healing and choice points. Be gentle with yourself, and know that you are in a sacred time and space.

“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you’re going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.” ~C. JoyBell C.

Like many of you (I sense), I have been experiencing the beautiful, mysterious, powerful, transmutational void – again. And yet, while it is all of these things and more, it can to many be unnerving, confusing, challenging, debilitating, disillusioning, disappointing, and even…

The Octopus’s Garden and Shadow Work

So many people –friends, clients, the collective, and myself included — continue to feel buried trauma, memories and emotions bursting from deep waters of the subconscious. Intense stuff, launching from ocean floor to the surface! Despite the Shadow nature of this gunk, I keep sensing waves of healing and liberation.

Last night, David and I were digging around for clarity about certain relationships, and I went to sleep asking for some kind of dream commentary. I awoke after about five hours of sleep with a joyful song and visual still playing. Continue reading

December brings the return of Gift Certificates, as well as a new “Holiday Empath and Meaning Session,” which seems much needed right now. Details below.

GIFT CERTIFICATES AND DECEMBER 2017 SPECIAL:

Gift Certificates:

Each year, people ask if they can gift a session to a loved one. I like to offer a discount to honor the love and care behind this gift. Certificates purchased in 2017 will remain valid through December 31, 2018. Since people always ask me this: no, you may not purchase a gift certificate for yourself. You can, however, request someone else get you a gift certificate. 😉 When you contact me to order a gift certificate, please let me now the name of the person you’re gifting, as well as any details you’d like me to include on the certificate. I’ll create and email you a personalized PDF, which you can email or print out for your loved one.

2017 gift certificates cover any of my services at $99/half hour instead of the usual rate of $133/half hour. 

(If you’d like to offer your loved one a Tarot reading, I can also turn the $44 November Tarot Special into a gift certificate, as long as you purchase that one by November 30th.)

Please contact me by December 31, 2017 to create your half-hour session, custom created gift certificate(s). If you’d like your certificate ready by a particular date, please allow at least a 48-hour turnaround.

 

Holiday Empath and Meaning Session

This is a new offering, specially designed for sensitive souls who find the frenzied holiday season overwhelming or uncomfortably devoid of meaning. I will tailor this session to your needs. We can cover:

  • Energy protection strategies to help you stay balanced and serene

  • How to create your own deeply meaningful celebrations
  • Finding your Soul’s “Reason for the Season”
  • Strategies for travel, work parties, house guests and/or animal care

Portals at Asylum Lake

On Thanksgiving, David and I took a hike at one of our favorite spots in Kalamazoo — Asylum Lake Preserve. We always find portals and magical spots, and Thursday was no exception. Here are some that David managed to catch on his iPhone.

We call this one “The Ganesha Tree,” and he opens the way to one of the trails. Can you see the elephant eye, ears, leg, and trunk? I think it looks even more like Ganesha from the other side, but the lighting worked better this way.

We also saw some amazing faery portals: Continue reading

New Fireside Chat with Zany Mystic and Timothy Glenn

Happy Belated Thanksgiving! We have so much gratitude this year that David and I have spent much more time settling in and hiking the nearby woods and lakes than typing up blog posts.

As a result, I’m just getting this November 18, 2017 Fireside Chat posted now. You can listen to the archive by clicking here. I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet either, but I can promise you a different experience with Lance White and Timothy Glenn than you’re likely to get with any Black Friday crowds!

Thank you for your supportive readership and kind comments throughout this past year. Such a whirlwind of changes! I know that’s the case for many others, too. For whatever reason you find yourself here — on this blog, on this planet at this time — thank you. I wish you joy and grace as we continue Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. 🙂

We’re down to just kale, collards, lettuce and mums outside, but inside, we’ve got happy plants and the first blooms on a Christmas cactus.

Past Lives and Law of Attraction

I forgot I had written this post until someone recently asked about significant moments in my recovery from a 1998 traumatic brain injury. I’ll share it here as an illustration that healing can come in unexpected, multi-layered ways. When we open ourselves to previous “no-go zones” life and healing unfold in marvelous ways.

Laura Bruno's Blog

When I first began working professionally as a Medical Intuitive ten years ago, I sometimes received past life “hits” while scanning someone’s energy. Every once in awhile past lives surfaced as a factor in symptoms, but I preferred not to access that sort of information. It seemed “weird,” “unprovable,” “way too out there” and downright “New Age-y.” I felt odd enough reading energy and sensing mind-body connections in strangers. All this seeing the unseen stuff seemed like it could take over my life, so I drew an arbitrary, but firm, line around past life issues. The only way I mentioned them was if I could absolutely find no other reason for a particular condition. Even then, I shared the information apologetically, as though turning to other lifetimes for an explanation somehow entailed my own failure to provide a good reading.

Some of you have already heard the story of how…
