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.

Foundational Shifts and Incremental Upgrades

Have you noticed? So many times when we set forth a big goal or intention, we have a vague idea of what we’d like, but no nuts and bolts understanding of how to do it. How would it feel? How did our future self “get there”?

Many times, a really big upgrade requires a foundational shift. Minor issues at the current level would become major with more energy, more visibility, more wealth, more, more, more anything. We might not realize it now, but the bigger part of us connected to All That Is knows and course corrects.

Building a castle on a cracked foundation risks disaster. Flying higher with faulty wings isn’t wise. Real, lasting achievement of this magnitude requires repair first, in order to build or soar later — with confidence, grace and joy.

If you’ve set a big goal or intended something far beyond your current reach, take a moment to appreciate any foundational shifts or incremental upgrades:

What fell apart or faded away after you launched your goal?

In what ways might this loss be a good or necessary thing?

What weak areas did it expose?

What old wounds or resentments surprised you by reappearing?

What new opportunities for healing and integration presented themselves?

How have you seized or resisted these opportunities?

In what ways has your life improved during your longer quest?

Which incremental upgrades joined the journey without you noticing?

In a world of “instant manifestation,” “Law of Attraction” and “spontaneous healing,” I hear from so many people who feel discouraged or impatient with their progress. Yes, sometimes we block ourselves from moving forward, but it helps to take stock once in awhile. You might be further along than you imagine.

Healing and abundance often sneak through the back door while we pine away on the front porch. Only when we go back inside do we notice how our living space has changed.

I haven’t had a chance to watch the entire video yet, but the parts I have are great! Thanks to my friend Karen for sending the link my way. It’s a collaboration with the Findhorn Foundation: such a sweet story in the beginning. 🙂

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
