Rune Soup: Talking Afterlife Experiences with Elizabeth Krohn.

I listened to this Rune Soup episode awhile back and meant to post it. Elizabeth’s story reminds me of some of my own weirder experiences, as well as relationship tensions following my 1998 TBI. Elizabeth Krohn teamed up with Dr. Jeff Kripal (Mutants and Mystics, The Super Natural: Why the Unexplained is Real, and many more) to co-author Changed in a Flash: One Woman’s Near-Death Experience and Why a Scholar Thinks It Empowers Us All.

Gordon White shares on his blog and YouTube channel:

This week, in what is probably one of my favourite ever episodes, we welcome to the show Elizabeth Krohn. Elizabeth, along with Dr Jeff Kripal, is the author of Changed in a Flash, which is the story of her being struck by lightning, dying and returning from the afterlife very much changed. A truly fascinating discussion. Enjoy.

A Tale of Two Timelines

Below is an updated version of a post I wrote in 2014, a time that seemed so intensely polarized. I have to laugh as I recall 2014, because the split grows wider and wider each year. Compared to today, 2014 was mellow!

I’ve received emails from some very anxious people begging me to blog about current events. I only do so when I feel led, and you won’t find me taking sides here. Some people have asked why I no longer blog directly about vaccines, BigPharma, GMO’s, and other Shadow topics. I used to, but at some point I found my blog getting censored. WordPress wouldn’t let me post if I included certain words; several search engines dropped my blog for two years. Even if I searched “Laura Bruno, Medical Intuitive,” my blog would not appear. My YouTube channel got censored into non-existence way back in 2011. I was one of the original ones booted off that platform for sharing non-mainstream, empowering information.

I consolidated five websites into this one blog. Forgoing YouTube and social media, this blog is the only online presence I now have. The risk of total censorship outweighs what I feel I can accomplish anymore by posting about certain topics. You can search the blog if you want to see what I’ve written over the years, although I removed some of that content, too. I feel like we’ve entered a new phase, where portal painting, orgone gridding, Reiki, energetic intervention and other under the radar actions produce stronger results with far less risk. And yes, more Divine Doorways and Portal Paintings are in the works. Those I’ll share. 🙂

My own path — along with many clients and blog readers — involves embracing paradox and the integration of seeming opposites. Best of the old, best of the new: what would create healing, harmony, generous yields and soul soothing beauty? These are the questions I ask, and most public work I do occurs very much behind the scenes. I will always support free will to choose creation or destruction, realizing that many times creation follows destruction. That said, the opportunities to choose keep ramping up. In any case, here’s a post from 2014, which if anything, seems even more true today:

Archive of the April 6th A Fireside Chat

I’ve heard from several people who missed the live A Fireside Chat with Zany Mystic and me this past Saturday. Lance White sent me the link for anyone who wants to listen to the replay.

As usual, the hour flew by! We talked about permaculture, gardening, art, synchronicity, cultivating beauty, healing, spiritual initiation, and the power of creativity. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did.

Uranus in Taurus: An Unexpected Journey

From May 15 – November 6, 2018, we got a glimpse — a preview — of rebel-liberator-techno-cosmic weirdo Uranus moving into slow-steady-Venusian-earthy bull Taurus. Uranus is lightning quick and revolutionary; Taurus is known for stubbornness, beauty and comfort.

In Tolkien terms, “Uranus in Taurus” is the Wizard Gandalf with his lightning fireworks and incomprehensible wisdom “inviting” Bilbo Baggins on an adventure. Although his birthday falls on September 22 (on the cusp of Virgo/Libra), Bilbo reacts like a Taurus facing Uranus. Like most Hobbits, Bilbo loves food, security, and his home in the Shire. Like Uranus, Gandalf disrupts a perfectly ordinary “Good Morning” and offers Bilbo the chance for radical change and growth.

When Bilbo declines that offer, Gandalf brings the party to Bilbo. Literally. As with Uranus, resistance to Gandalf is futile. A band of Dwarves throw Bilbo’s home into chaos, eat all his food stores and drive him so crazy that his inner “Took” heritage starts fighting with the more sensible “Baggins” side. In a shocking twist, Bilbo finds himself a willing and essential participant in the adventure he refused. The rest is Hobbit history and one of the most beloved stories ever told. Of course, good stories involve challenge and change, but they also bring growth. Like Uranus, Gandalf ignites and liberates a dormant part of Bilbo. Life becomes much less predictable, but the changes redefine how Bilbo sees himself and the world.

On Wednesday, March 6, 2019, Uranus moves back into Taurus until July 7, 2025. Continue reading

Pure Delight!

This past Valentine’s Day marked some very special transitions. David and I held our own lovely celebration, but that day also opened a new era in my personal life, especially related to writing fiction. Always in eerie sync, my sweet friend Tania Marie opened her new Etsy shop that day. She had texted me previews of the photos, but clicking on The Magick Rabbit shop link brought new levels of delight.

As I sat at my writing desk in my blue office, staring at the waterfall tapestry with a blue velvet “watery” chair beneath, I just knew I needed a “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea DIY Rabbit Fairy Crystal Garden Kit in Tortoise Finish Indoor Planter Pot Seashell Conch Fairy House.” How could I resist? This precious little bunny in a boat makes me smile every time I see him:

I love all of Tania’s whimsical creations. If I had the room, I would give every single one a spot, but I love this one the best. I also wanted to support Tania’s new venture, and it felt like a perfect Love Day gift to my creative spirit and inner child. I understood the concept: Tania procures and designs the “gardens,” ships them to you, and then you can assemble per the original design or make your own. I was not prepared for all the fun, though!

Healing Portal: Pisces Sun, Virgo Supermoon, and Chiron

Spiritual Healing and Practical Woo

Monday, February 18 to Tuesday, February 19, 2019 marks the Sun’s shift from Aquarius to Pisces, followed by a Full Supermoon in Virgo. Pisces (ruled by boundless, graceful Neptune) and Virgo (the detail oriented, Mercurial healer of the zodiac) together bring opportunities for spiritual healing of ourselves, each other and our planet. Think Water and Earth, Cups and Pentacles, Emotional/Intuitive realm and the Body/Physical realm. Aim to integrate practicality (Virgo) and emotions (Pisces).

Go with the flow, especially if the flow leads to a sudden urge to dot your i’s and cross your t’s. 

Tuesday’s Full Moon is the fourth in a series of five supermoon’s in a row. Even though we’ve finished the recent eclipse trio, this ongoing supermoon series intensifies the usual emotional wallop of a Full Moon. This month’s zero degree Virgo adds extra oomph for emotional resets and healing –provided you integrate the polarities.

Through the negative lens, nitpicky Virgo seems like a stick in the mud compared to Pisces’ watery idealism. It might feel like “first the ecstasy, then the laundry,” but this tension can bring positive results. Think of the monastic life, rooted in physical labor and baking bread. If you seek the spiritual in mundane details, you’ll find many miracles. Nebulous prayers reveal their answers in lived experience. If you’ve felt confused or adrift, this Virgo Supermoon could bring sudden clarity about your next logical step.

[UPDATE: in typical Pisces/Virgo tension, this original inspired article got slightly hazy on the details. Chiron is not an asteroid but a centaur — really not sure why I typed that or failed to catch it before posting. The Sun/Supermoon discussion covers two days, February 18-19th, 2019, although the effects will last longer. I originally focused on Tuesday, since that’s when the Moon enters Virgo. I’m including this update for clarity, but also as an illustration of that sweeping sense of harmony that can trip over details. That doesn’t negate your inspiration or sense of cosmic beauty. Be gentle with yourself, and remind critical Virgo of its trickster ruler.]

Chiron from Pisces to Aries

For clues on what’s up for healing, look back to April 17-18, 2018, when Chiron last shifted from 29th degree Pisces to 0 degrees Aries. Yes, coinciding with this Virgo Supermoon and the Sun’s shift to Pisces, Wounded Healer Chiron returns to Aries this Tuesday. Chiron spent April 2010-April 2018 in Pisces, giving an eight year stretch of spiritual healing influence. This centaur galloped into Aries from April 18th until September 27th, 2018 when it retrograded to Pisces again.

Chiron represents our deepest wounds and how in healing these wounds we help others heal. Since healing rarely occurs in a linear fashion, it helps to observe cycles and similar aspects:

  • What themes or situations called for healing from April 2010-2018?
  • What did you learn, and what core wounds were influenced by doubt and faith during this period?
  • What healing crisis or need to care for yourself first (Aries) burst onto the scene in April 2018?
  • What relief or insights did you receive in late September 2018?
  • What spiritual wounds or questions arose again?
  • Where are you now?
  • How have you grown?

As Chiron moves from 29th degree Pisces into 0 degrees Aries, what actions will you take to support your own healing? What parts of you need healing before you can forge ahead? The combo of Pisces Sun, Virgo Supermoon, and this Chiron shift provides insight and energy to support deep healing and release. Will you allow yourself to receive the blessings? These are collective energies. How they affect you as an individual depends on your own willingness to embrace the energies, along with aspects to your natal chart. For more insights, look for signs in the 29th or 0 degree range, or we can explore your chart and transits together in a session.

For general inspiration and portal support, I feel led to share the link to Divine Doorway #5: “King of Cups aka Chiron.” I created this door just before Chiron moved from Aquarius to Pisces in April 2010, just flowing with the energies. It’s eerie how much that door opens in 29th degree Chiron, whatever the sign.

Blessings and healing to you and yours!

Lyme Journal Reviews

I’m grateful for and honored by enthusiastic emails from so many people who have found “Lyme Journal: A Guided Recovery Workbook” both helpful and inspirational. A few highlights include:

“Laura, got the book. Phenomenal. So much heart!”

“I LOVE this book. Seriously. It cannot be solely for Lyme, tho, because it is way too beneficial. It pertains to all mind/body/spirit symptoms. It’s so important!”

“I had time to read through it. It’s AWESOME!! I will share it in my client group and FB page.”
Clients have also shared that “Lyme Journal” helps them feel much more supported between sessions. That warms my heart, because I wrote this guided journal to help people help themselves.
I realize this is a 139-page guided journal, so some people may not have finished it yet, but I have a favor to ask. If you have benefited from this book, I would love an honest review on Amazon. As most blog readers know, I don’t do social media or advertising, and I didn’t do a big “book launch” or marketing blitz for “Lyme Journal.” I keep things sweet and simple with just me, my blog, repeat clients and referrals. I know health issues are very personal, so please don’t feel pressured to leave a review.
If you happen to feel led, though, I would very much appreciate your review. It also helps potential readers decide if a book’s legitimate and likely to resonate with them. Many thanks for your consideration and your support, whether private or public. I have a special place in my heart for people dealing with Lyme disease and similar life-changing health challenges. I wish you peace and empowerment on your healing journey.
Much love,
Laura
