“Two Wise Women (Plus One…)” ~ Mia Feroleto hosts Ann Kreilkamp and me on her Podcast, New Observations

Mia Feroleto, Ann Kreilkamp and I had a three-way call in late March, talking about Coronavirus, healing practices, spirituality, uncertain times, and astrology. Our conversation clocked in at 1 hour 11 minutes. You can listen to it here.

March 22, 2020 North Node Horoscopes are up!

Catherine and I continue to aim for a 22nd date release of these North Node Horoscopes. You can read them here. This month’s focus on ways to find your silver lining amidst change and crisis. They have more of an “everyone” slant than the more usual “midlife female” angle for Catherine’s main audience.

I’ll repeat here what I shared last month:

If you don’t know your North Node sign, Catherine’s got a table on her site to tell you. Those of you who happen to know both your North Node sign and its house will also find value looking up the corresponding sign for that house:

1st House North Node = Aries North Node similarities

2nd House North Node = Taurus North Node similarities

3rd House North Node = Gemini North Node similarities

4th House North Node = Cancer North Node similarities

5th House North Node = Leo North Node similarities

6th House North Node = Virgo North Node similarities

7th House North Node = Libra North Node similarities

8th House North Node = Scorpio North Node similarities

9th House North Node = Sagittarius North Node similarities

10th House North Node = Capricorn North Node similarities

11th House North Node = Aquarius North Node similarities

12th House North Node = Pisces North Node similarities

For example, if you have a Leo North Node in the 12th house, your primary North Node Horoscope would be Leo, but you’ll also find guidance in the Pisces North Node information. The beauty of North Node horoscopes is that you can usually calculate the sign without an exact birth time, and the sign is always super relevant to your life path. As with anything in astrology, though, the more exact time you have, the more subtle information you can glean. (Just a little tip to pull more from these monthly North Node Horoscopes.)

Spiritual and Medical Intuitive Thoughts on COVID 19 Coronavirus

People keep asking me to comment publicly on the COVID-19 situation, and I find it difficult to impossible to make any kind of blanket statement. In addition to my own intuitive guidance, as well as dreams that in retrospect anticipated Wuhan and Italy, I receive on the ground reports from people I trust. I have an international blog audience and clients from around the US and around the world. Yes, many places are out of toilet paper, but beyond that, wide varieties of experience exist.

From my perspective, multiple timelines are very much in play. In addition to location, depending on your frequency, life path, choices and focus, your experience can be very different. Many of my longer term Lyme clients find other people suddenly turning to them for advice. Others I’ve trained in Reiki suddenly find themselves in a position to lead and empower. People who’ve done Shadow Work and meditation find the world starting to catch up to them.

From a Medical Intuitive perspective, I do sense multiple strains of Covid-19, two of which seem fairly innocuous, while others seem much more severe. From a bigger picture and astrological perspective, the collective needs some internal processing time, so life has rearranged to accommodate. Introverts finally feel a little more “mainstream.” I suggest everyone use whatever spiritual and emotional tools you have so that you can remain grounded from a center of love. Learn to pivot: realities and timelines are very fluid right now.

As Neitzsche said, “One must have chaos to birth a dancing star.” Whether you call it “a disturbance in the Force” or “a change in routines” or “extra bendy Time,” you can take advantage of this opening. How you do that very much depends on you, so I cannot make further general recommendations.

I always intuit which specials to offer each month, and this month’s $77 20-minute email check-in seems to have anticipated people really wanting help discerning what this time means for them. If you’d like more personalized advice, comfort or insights regarding the current world situation — or any challenge you face — please consider the email option or booking a phone session. I’m not trying to push my services on anyone. I just really do not feel in integrity to make a blanket statement when I keep seeing such a vast field of variables.

Many of those variables can become very positive, yet I don’t want to diminish real challenges some people face. For many people, this time marks a huge turning inward, and they might find some things they don’t like. For others, this time marks a huge shining outward. It just depends on who and where you are on your path. No judgement — but the “reality” feels very different in each case. Also, the remedies and way forward depend on the answer to these variables.

You can find the March Specials here: https://laurabruno.wordpress.com/2020/03/03/march-2020-specials/

It’s also a terrific time to complete Reiki Master Teacher Certification training (the other March Special). If you happen to have time off from work or want to deepen skills you already have, I sense the world will need more Reiki Master Teachers in the coming months and years. If you feel stressed out or need healing support, long distance Reiki always meets the guidelines of “social distancing,” even if you can’t enjoy your usual massage or yoga class. You can find information on my other services here and here.

Also, this blog has a Search function. Many pandemics have come and gone. I’ve written on all sorts of things before. Plug your query into the Search tab, and you might find I already addressed your concern in 2009 or 2012. Things cycle around!

On a personal note, I keep getting instructions to chant, chant, and chant some more. I find that sacred chants keep my natal Neptune-Mercury opposition tapping into the numinous and intuitive instead of empathing all the nonsense. Find what works for you to make the best of things.

Blessed Be … and be the blessing. You are a blessing, and there are blessings available now and always.

Empathic Awareness and Your Future Self

I love this article that just popped across my path! I am an off the charts Empath, and so are many of my clients. As any Empath knows, this “gift” feels like a curse if you don’t know how to manage the input. Practicing good energy hygiene helps, as does time in Nature, Dreamwork and self care. The gifts of a properly managed and respected empathic awareness include strong intuition, your own biofeedback “yes” or “no,” and the ability to develop deep, caring relationships.

I’ve often written about alternate timelines, non-linear time, and precognition. In sessions, I talk about tuning into your future self, either through dreams, meditation and/or conscious asking of that future self, “What did I do? How did I make it through this challenge?” Future memories sometimes come through in spontaneous visions, but you can encourage that flow of information with more direct intention.

Today’s featured article shares scientific studies linking empathy and the ability to tap into your future self in order to make better, more positive long-term choices today:

Self Control Is Just Empathy With Your Future Self

All the more reason to cultivate and work with your empathic gifts!

Mastering Modern Midlife with Catherine Grace O’Connell and Laura Bruno

Today, I’m excited to share my one and only video interview. I love Catherine’s write up from her newsletter, which you can read here. You can watch this conversation on Facebook, Podbean, iTunes, or YouTube, which I’ll also embed below. We cover medical intuition, healing, Lyme disease, some of my personal story, plus an extra focus on Midlife, the healing power of creativity, and the North Nodes.

Catherine refers several times to our having recorded this interview twice, alluding to me being “a very high vibe being.” The story behind that is the reason this remains my one and only video interview. I’ve done many phone interviews, and I used to have many videos on YouTube until my channel got censored in 2011. However, I don’t do sessions or interviews via video or computer, because I have a history of blowing out nearby electronics. Doing an intuitive tune-in ramps up my energy in a big, sometimes explosive way, so I lobbied hard for using a landline on my end. I delayed too long, and Catherine and her business partner Mike stopped doing audio-only interviews. By the time we scheduled, it was video or nothing.

I warned them about my tendency to blow things out, and I surrounded my laptop with stacks of orgone pucks. I theorized that I should be OK as long as Catherine didn’t ask me to do an intuitive scan or anything too energy related in the interview. If we were just talking, and I was careful with my energy, then it should work. We had a great conversation the first time, but at one point, she asked me an intuitive question. I tuned in and when I looked directly into the camera, I blew out the equipment on their end, erasing half the interview. This had never happened before or since, and they use backup cameras and recording. It was all wiped.

Soooo, we re-recorded, and we ended up enjoying this conversation even more. You might notice me trying hard not to look too directly into the camera. If you know me in person, you’ll also notice my concerted effort in this interview not to talk with my hands. I know from Reiki classes that whoever’s in line of my right hand — the one that almost got struck by lightning — gets blasted with energy the entire class. I didn’t want to send that energy into the camera or laptop screen.

I tried so hard to keep my energy in check so we could have a successful recording this time, and it worked!

I’m sharing the behind the scenes details here, because some people ask for video sessions and may wonder if I can do a video interview, then why can’t I do a video session? Trust me, you get much better intuitive work from me when I’m not spending the bulk of my energy trying not to blow out your or my equipment! It really took a massive amount of concentration not to let too much energy spontaneously leap out.

That said, this was a super fun interview. I love how it showcases Catherine’s and my friendship, as well as the deep topics of healing and transformation we discuss. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Do check out her write up here. Also, just a reminder that my monthly North Node Horoscopes are available exclusively on Catherine’s site. We post those around the 22nd of each month, depending on when the Sun changes signs. Enjoy!

Time Dreams and a Podcast

I wanted to bring attention to Ann Kreilkamp’s ARKCroneCast Updates, her new podcast available to Patreon subscribers. The subscription levels are only $5, $10 or $20 per month, well worth it, imho. Ann brings over 40 years as an astrologer, plus 77 years of extraordinary living. I especially enjoyed her latest, Number 11, called “Trust.” She discusses this theme in context of Saturn and Pluto types of trust, and I found it perfectly synchronized with this morning’s dreams.

I left those dreams as a comment on her site, but I’ll share them here, too. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone feeling a huge disparity between right and left brain messages. I know many people keep receiving vivid dreams and visions that seem so real, yet so unrelated to current life circumstances. Ann’s podcast shares different levels of trust, and why this theme seems so “up” right now for so many. (Hint: Saturn and Pluto, though not exactly conjunct, remain super close in Capricorn.)

Anyway, here’s my comment, and here’s the link to CroneCast 11:

Great podcast!

Synchronously, before listening to this, two dreams this morning featured “Time” as a topic, including a wall of dozens of circular clocks, all synchronized, all being kept warm by a “hot plate wall” behind them. The message was one I keep getting, “high vibe and filled with life force energy,” a theme that keeps showing up in dreams about death, mud or dusty wreaths filled with seeds. This particular dream implied that we could “eat Time” and that this time banquet was being prepared and kept warm by amazing cosmic time chefs who knew exactly when and how to serve the right moments as a feast.

In the prior dream, I was in a clothing store, second story, somewhere in Idaho. The female clerk told me that in order to find what I wanted, I needed to cross the street. I went downstairs and began to cross the street, which turned into an intimidatingly wide street.

I crossed at a crosswalk, but the light went through several cycles as I made my way across the street. I was wearing high heeled, intricately carved wooden shoes, which I realized I could not continue to walk in. I took them off, and my bare feet couldn’t continue walking on this road, either. I was already in the middle of the road with cars on both sides. I dropped to my knees, kneeling, and “walking” on my knees across the street.

I worried that no one could see me so low to the ground, that I would get run over. Then I realized that none of the drivers of the cars seemed to notice the lights had changed. Time had either slowed down or stopped for them while I made my way — safely — across the street. When I arrived at the other store, traffic resumed. The store had exactly what I wanted, even though I didn’t know I was looking for it. I left wearing the new clothes.

I love your mantra at the end: “Let the tide carry me, whether it goes in or out.” I think I’ll adopt that one, too. So many Plutonian dreams this past few months! My goodness, it’s Pluto central … with Saturn thrown in trying to stop the tide. 🙂 Thank you.

February 2020 Specials

Happy Imbolc, Happy Groundhog Day and Happy February!

IMG_1743

I received several signs to extend the January “Three for Two” Special into February. So many people keep contacting me right at the point of breakthrough, which can seem an awful lot like “breakdown” until the new, empowered perspective clicks in. I’ve heard from many people in a state of fear, confusion or despair, who sense just a hint of higher order and encouragement.

Since healing and growth move in spirals rather than a straight line, many times you’re processing “the same things” at a different level. That doesn’t mean you’re going in circles! Think cycles — moving through the journey at the right place at the right time, doing the right thing, even if it you can’t locate where you are on the multidimensional map. That’s when it helps to have a guide. It’s a Leap Year … here’s to making a quantum leap!

The Goddess Brigid/St. Bridget is known as a great healer, so this month’s Medical Intuitive focus also feels extra appropriate.

Wherever you are and however you experience this time of year, I invite you to light a candle — in front of you or in your own heart. With so much trauma/drama in the news, it helps to cultivate your own moments of peace and faith.
