Farewell, Sweet Friend!

IMG_1089

It’s funny, but of all the the beings, plants, trees, furniture, and decorations we’re leaving behind, I will miss her most. This sweet faery has been with me since 2004 or 2005. She used to have a crystal ball, which almost immediately broke so that she could have a flower full of stones to hold. I don’t even know how many times she’s moved with me — I think 13 moves, including across the country in 2010.

I don’t know her name even after all this time, but she houses an actual faery. Others have seen her essence, too, including Continue reading

New Rates, Offerings and May 2017 Specials

So many people have asked about my new May 2017 rates, offerings and specials, in part because they want to know whether or not to purchase the April Specials. I wasn’t going to announce these until May 1, but in case even more people have questions, I’ll post these with a few days left in April.

I’ve not raised rates or radically shifted my offerings in ten years. After much prayer, synchronicity and consideration, these changes reflect frequent requests for services I don’t normally offer, as well as 16 years of professional session experience, teaching, speaking, and written support. At this time, I’m not changing my Reiki or Tarot offerings. The new rates and offerings affect any intuitive or coaching services that are not Reiki or Tarot based. You can find those (lower) rates and descriptions by clicking through the links above.

For the months of May and June, I’m also going to experiment with an email option as a Monthly Special, since so many people want to send me “quick” questions. Those “quick” questions are usually not that quick, since they still require an intuitive tune-in, energy reading/interpretation, and then the time it takes both to read their email and to respond. Previously, I have referred people to my blog or my books for general information, or a private phone session for specific information, but some people prefer email. I do not want to spend even more time in front of a computer, especially with my intended shift to writing books again once we get settled in our new place; however, of all the requests, email sessions are highest on the list. I’ll see how this option goes for May while it might actually be easier to fit in around packing, and then see what, if anything, needs tweaking after our move in late June.

Please scroll down for the May 2017 Specials, which are listed after the new rates and services.

NEW RATES AND OFFERINGS EFFECTIVE MAY 1, 2017

These services include anything related to:

  • Medical Intuition
  • Mind-Body-Spirit Readings
  • Soul Readings
  • Past Life Readings
  • Life Purpose/Life Path
  • Any kind of Coaching (life; career; relationship; transition; strategies for children, workplace dynamics, and/or aging parents; chronic health issues; awakening creativity, etc.)
  • Designing Personal Rituals for maximum shift of subconscious and energetic factors
  • Messages/Communication to and from deceased loved ones
  • Helping to discern effective spiritual practices and daily habits
  • Timeline Shifts

(If you would like a service not listed here, please inquire. There’s so much overlap with skills and techniques that the above list represents the most common, but not the only types of sessions offered.)

Rates:

20-Minute Check-in: $90

40-Minute Intuitive or Coaching Session: $177

60-Minute Intuitive or Coaching Session: $222

PROPERTY CLEARINGS AND RELOCATION BOOSTERS

This is a previously unadvertised service, which so many people have found so beneficial that I’ve decided to make it public. This service can be used for:

  • Clearing properties or spaces of negative energies and hostile influences
  • Preparing homes for sale and removing unwanted attachments to old properties
  • Blessing new homes, properties or work spaces
  • Smoothing details of relocation and supporting synchronicity in the search for a new home or office
  • Raising the vibration and increasing the positive influence radius of your home or work space
  • Blessing gardens or public spaces
  • Creating spheres of protection around your environment
  • Dedicating spaces to support certain goals or intentions
  • Creating a healing sanctuary or supporting sacred space

(If it’s not listed but seems related, please contact me for options. This process involves a combination of a Reiki Healing Attunement, Runes, specially determined timing, and any supportive symbols, crystals, etc. depending on the individual situation. It’s more complex and specific than a Reiki Healing Attunement, but that technique forms the foundation of this process.)

Rates:

$77 per location or specific intention

$200 for 3 locations or intentions (i.e. if you need to sell one property in order to purchase another and also want help finding a new office; if there are multiple properties involved; or if you anticipate needing this service again sometime)

PERMACULTURE CONSULTING

In addition to seven years of intensive gardening experience and research, I completed my Permaculture Design Certificate in January 2017. “Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design principles centered on simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems.” This certification allows me to:

  • Help individuals or groups incorporate perennial vegetables and edible trees/shrubs into ornamental landscapes
  • Design properties for beauty and abundance
  • Assess ways of becoming more sustainable with your current set-up
  • Offer general instruction on permaculture principles (not the full PDC course)
  • Insights and resources for enhanced soil fertility, companion planting and multi-season harvests
  • I also work closely with Nature Spirits, Faeries and the Elements. If desired, my consultation can include ways of tuning into your own land and enhancing harmony with other beings who share that space with you.

Rates:

Half-hour phone consultation (if applicable): $90

Other services and rates will vary depending on the situation and if it requires in-person visits. Please contact me with details about your specific needs, location and requests.

MAY 2017 SPECIALS

20-Minute Email Check-In for $77

As mentioned above, this special is an experiment since so many people request email support. Twenty minutes usually covers one or two questions or issues, and it includes my time reading and replying to your email, plus the time spent tuning in and interpreting any messages I receive, along with providing links (if applicable) for further details and information. If you have more complex questions, you can add time. Available if prepaid on or before May 31, 2017. Depending on how this goes, this special might become a regular offering, but we’ll see, as I prefer life away from the computer. Please contact me to sign up.

Mentoring Package for Counselors, Therapists, Energy Healers, Coaches, Social Workers, and Alternative Medical Professionals

With sixteen years of professional experience under my belt, I’ve spent over a decade mentoring clients and students in similar or complementary fields. This has previously occurred as individual coaching sessions or classes, but for May 2017, I’m offering a package deal to support people wanting to take their business to the next level.

This package includes:

  • Four hours of career coaching, which can include tips for enhancing your own intuition to help more clients and recognize business opportunities, aligning with the “Cosmic Scheduler” to achieve work/life balance, embracing higher visibility, and helping clients and students find you without needing to resort to heavy duty traditional marketing and social media
  • Two 20-minute Email Check-Ins between phone sessions
  • Reiki Healing Attunement to amplify goals, clarity and alignment

May Special Rate:

$626 (Save $471.55 over individual services)

Offer valid if prepaid on or before May 31, 2017. Please contact me to sign up.

Medical Intuition and Family Lineage

An interesting question arrived via email this weekend, and I thought I’d share non-confidential portions of that Q&A here in case anyone else has similar questions about Medical Intuition and familial patterns:

Question:

I remember you telling me that when you do readings you see the maternal family side on one side and the paternal on the other- was it maternal side on the person’s left side (their left not the left if you are looking at them)?

Answer:

Good to hear from you! I don’t actually see things the way most people do, which is one reason I have not yet developed a generic training program. I am sure you can find generalized instructions online somewhere. That’s just not my own process.

I simply “know” which side of the family it comes from, and it appears to me in whatever way the client can understand. If they are visual, I get visual info (but not always in family tree, left/right format… itΒ  might be an image). If someone is auditory, I get words or phrases or instructions. If someone is kinesthetic I feel — what they feel or even what their ancestors felt. It’s more complex than left or right, but also much more detailed. πŸ™‚

Best advice is to find out what it looks like when YOU do readings, and that comes with experience and comparing the info you sense with available and verifiable information. It is a process to do it the way I do it. I think there are a lot more what I would call plug and play medical Intuitive trainings out there. I don’t know how accurate they are, as I have no experience with taking the courses. I will say that there are very few people I would refer someone to for medical intuition, but that does not mean they aren’t out there! I just don’t personally know them.

I hope that helps in some way. Traditionally, left is masculine and right feminine, but some people reverse that because right brain controls left side and vice versa. πŸ˜‰

Big blessings,
Laura

Empaths, Malaise, and Downward Spirals: How to Shift the Energy Now

I can’t tell you how many sessions I’ve had with people this past week for whom the election and its aftermath — regardless of their politics or disinterest in politics — has triggered massive grief, anger, shock, disbelief, confusion, feelings of fear, cognitive dissonance, betrayal, and/or the desire to give up. Most of these clients are people “who know better” than to go down such spirals, but for whatever reason, they can’t seem to pull themselves out of the whirlpool.

In most cases, their usual coping tools aren’t working, because the things bothering them aren’t really “theirs” to fix.

I’ve had an unusually high volume of calls from Water Signs this past week, especially Pisces, well known for their fluid boundaries and subconscious empathing of surrounding emotions and energies. Even if you’re not a Pisces, if you feel less than optimal right now, please consider the possibility that you might be empathing a bunch of energy from people and a culture whose carefully imprisoned Shadows just experienced a collective jailbreak and are now rioting in the streets. In some cases, quite literally.

If you continue to receive “signs” like angel number sequences, faery winks, creative ideas, and magical synchronicities but still feel awful, please prioritize what I call “good energy hygiene.”Literally brush yourself off if an interaction with someone sends you into a tailspin. Sweep down each arm from shoulder to fingertip and flick your fingers like you just washed your hands and can’t find a towel. Employ good energy filters: indoor plants, soothing music, protective crystals (especially black tourmaline, black obsidian, black jade, hematite, and onyx), use protective Runes like Algiz, and follow these guidelines below:

13612137_10154334935478234_4696796560783748195_n.jpg

If you need extra support right now, please don’t feel embarrassed to reach out. I can assure you that you’re not alone. People who began our phone calls sobbing this week ended them laughing and refocused. Sometimes it just takes a little adjustment to pop back into the good reality. A little chiropractic for the soul. As the veils continue to thin, we can sense all sorts of chaos and negativity, but in the immortal words of Leonard Cohen who recently crossed the veil: “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”

Big Love …

Another Update on My Dad

(More recent updates in comments, too…)

Hi, and thank you again to everyone sending prayers, love, healing and support to my dad, me, and my entire family. There are an increasing number of moving parts and decisions, so timing and outcome are very difficult to predict. I spent much of yesterday in conversation, emails and texts with my mom, brother, sister and my neurologist uncle, as my dad’s situation keeps shifting hour by hour.

David and I are packing and have arranged for an immediate road trip if needed; however, the original timing still works best for everyone if things ease up. Much of that depends on my dad’s decisions, which we are all trying to honor, giving him as much dignity and agency as possible, while also still looking out for his short term health and overall quality of life. His health situation remains quite complex, with competing priorities resulting in highly different choices right now.

I am at peace with my father and on very good terms, as well as able to communicate telepathically, with repeatedly verified results, so David and I are just trying to ensure that the timing of our visit provides the most support and least disruption for everyone — including my sister, Erica, who is currently shouldering most of the local responsibility, while also being a mom to my two nephews, who are very close to their grandpa.

My brother is considering another trip to PA, but again, the on-the-ground logistics and my dad’s pending decisions largely determine what would be appropriate, supportive timing. My mom’s holding up pretty well and receives a lot of support and encouragement from her church, too. Speaking of church, my sister is reading my dad’s speech to all five of the services, beginning last night. He was unable to deliver his own stories of the power of prayer in his life, but he’s very grateful that my sister was willing and able to do so on his behalf. I’m sure there will not be a dry eye in all five services!

In any case, I appreciate the ongoing care, support and concern from everyone here and elsewhere. In terms of sessions this week, there are potential scenarios in which everything’s perfectly fine in PA, and David and I leave with the original timing, in which case, all scheduled sessions remain as is. With so many decisions, personalities and shifts, I need to have the flexibility to travel at a moment’s notice, and so it’s possible that I might need to make last minute changes. In that event, I promise to reschedule as soon as possible. I’m not not-scheduling future sessions (in other words, I am scheduling future sessions) because there are trajectories in which this week through six months are perfectly fine, and other trajectories in which this week, three weeks or two months from now become chaotic.

Until my dad’s situation stabilizes, I will just need to be a little more fluid than usual in terms of scheduling. Thank you for understanding, and again, thank you for your care and concern. This will likely be my last update regarding my dad until we have a much better sense of which path he decides to take.

Much love and gratitude, Laura

 

X-Files, Owls, Faeries and Soft Disclosure

Today’s post began one way, and then turned into a compilation of resources:

Here’s an interesting and thoughtful piece from Rebecca Hardcastle Wright called, “What’s Beneath ET Disclosure: Were We Lab Rats?” — definitely worth a read now that the new X-Files, Hillary, Podesta, all manner of experiencers and the New Age cavalry seem to be pushing a soft disclosure of ET presence. As an ironic rule, I don’t make firm conclusions, really not in any area, but especially not this one. Rebecca asks herself some difficult questions, yet her conclusion reminds me of something I notice in so many other areas these days — no matter what the original intent and real or imagined existence of would-be overlords, people continue to free themselves from the maze.

In addition to Rebecca’s article, I highly recommend Mike Clelland’s new book, “The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee,” which I’ve reviewed here. You’ll know if that book’s for you or not by reading the review.

Ardy Sixkiller Clarke also does an excellent job of chronicling Native stories in her books “Encounters with Star People: Untold Stories of American Indians” and “Sky People: Untold Stories of Alien Encounters in Mesoamerica.”

Rebecca’s article and these authors focus largely on the UFO phenomenon in recent times, especially since 1947; however, old faery lore and folk tales are filled with many of the same sorts of stories from hundreds of years ago. For an eerie exploration of the complex and sometimes spooky world of Faerie, I recommend this version of “The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries”, by W. Y. Evans-Wentz. His book arose from a c. 1910 dissertation and includes interviews with older inhabitants of Celtic Countries passing down their own experiences, as well as family stories. Even accounting for the good and ill of any species and the Christian overlay superimposed on original tales, this book heightens mystery and explores both positive and negative encounters with the Faery Realm. I found it impossible to read that book without marveling at the similarity of contemporary ET encounters and many of these true “fairy tales.”

I also very much enjoy Margie McArthur’s book, “Faery Healing: The Lore and the Legacy.” She covers ancient stories with somewhat of a Christian overlay, but she also explores specific healing gifts from the faeries, along with specific illnesses attributed to faeries (and possible cures).

The BBC film series, “Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell” offers a creepy look into reasons for exercising caution making deals with faeries. Remember, according to Faery Rules, “A person’s word is bond,” so don’t make deals unless you intend to keep them! You might also like my follow-up post, “More Tips for Connecting with the Faeries.” That said, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell are definitely dealing with what’s known as “The Unseelie Court,” composed of faeries not friendly to humans. While these do exist and it’s wise to use discernment, there’s also the “Seelie Court,” whose members are much more kindly disposed to humans. Additionally, you can find wild faeries, solitary faeries, trooping faeries, Elementals, Leprechauns and all manner of Nature Spirits. It’s a vast world out there … and in here!

Again, I make no conclusions in this realm. I’ve had paranormal experiences of such wide variety, and my brain and energy system work so differently than most people’s that my own world won’t come crumbling down with anyone else’s disclosure — sincere, highly sensationalized and/or carefully orchestrated. I include these links and resources for those who aren’t at all sure what to think, or who find such things of interest. The more consciously we approach these topics, and the more we exert our own sovereignty and ability to create our own experiences, the more freeing and expansive it all becomes. πŸ™‚

Book Review ~ “The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee” by Mike Clelland

Book Review

The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity, and the UFO Abductee

By Mike Clelland

To say I devoured this book would be an understatement. The fact that the title includes the phrase, “UFO Abductee” also makes that understatement a miracle. Although I’ve had a lifetime of extremely paranormal, inter- and extra-dimensional experiences, have used telepathy since childhood, and religiously watched the show “Roswell” during my non-reading brain injury years, that whole X-files, UFO Conference, and “abductee” panoply is just not my scene. I’m much more of an intuitive reading, gardening, Reiki teaching, shamanic journeying, Faerie Realm, create beauty, tree-hugger type.

Not that the two can’t coexist! I’ve long noticed obvious crossovers; I just really don’t like to focus on any kind of victim mentality or the cloak-and-dagger secret space war, black-ops military projects, and “the Nazi’s won WW2” conspiracies. Nor do I enjoy the largely dis-empowering, Savior-in-the wings, “luv-n-lite” cotton candy of most material supposedly channeled from ET’s. Thankfully, Mike Clelland’s new book is none of these things. Rather, “The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee” explores the absurdly frequent appearance of owls before or after periods of unexplained missing time, UFO sightings, death (including Near Death Experiences), and/or moments of extreme spiritual questioning.

Although Mike does address the common “screen memory” of a four foot tall owl so often shared by abductees, this book spends much more time looking at synchronicities with real owls. Parts of “The Messengers” will no doubt make readers uncomfortable, but anyone who’s ever had an attraction to or relationship with owls will value the diversity of exploratory lenses — from owl experts to shamans to animal communicators to contactees to paranormal researchers to psychologists/psychiatrists to hypnotherapists to outdoorsmen to myths from around the world. The book also becomes an exploration of consciousness itself. How does synchronicity “work,” and by extension, what role(s) do we really have in the creation of our own experience of reality? More importantly for the purposes of “The Messengers,” what role do owls play in the Mystery of mysteries, and what reality-shattering implications might that role bring with it?

“The Messengers” presents both a deeply personal and universally human quest. Mike Clelland, also known as “The Owl Guy” has experienced truly bizarre owl encounters — in frequency, unusual behavior patterns, and especially in their meaningful timing. On his journey to understand his own experiences and their implications, Mike has interviewed hundreds of other people about their own synchronous owl stories. Page after page of magical tales weave their own comforting web of synchronicities across time and space. We find owl stories and dates linking people and events sometimes thousands of miles and many years apart. Inexplicably intertwined with the owl stories come sightings of UFO’s, colored orbs, strange lights, and the development of certain personal traits — high levels of intuition, energetic healing abilities, and a profound sense of “mission.”

Since so many people who contact Mike with their on owl stories (myself included) also end up having weird owl synchronicities right after emailing or calling him, “The Messengers” contains multiple layers of such intricately knotted stories that the book rewards readers with an undeniable sense of the vastness and complex beauty of life. So many stories involve moments of intense doubt and then the mysterious appearance of an owl that results in clarity and a deep reverence for life. Many people also share how owls “freak them out” or “terrify” them, and Mike explores these stories through a variety of lenses, including the highly inconsistent attitudes of indigenous cultures to owls. Unlike many animals, the spiritual meaning of owls varies from place to place.

Everything I’ve mentioned so far would make “The Messengers” an interesting and powerful book; however, imho, Mike’s treatment of what he calls “the maybe people” makes this one of the most important books of our time. Mike spends most of the book trying to make sense of his own “maybe” status as someone who does not consider himself a UFO abductee but who nevertheless exhibits very similar traits and paranormal experiences as those who do. His journey remains his own, but by providing it in context of so many others’ journeys, it encourages readers to look more deeply at our own lives. Doing so takes courage, and Mike shares his own struggles with the journey, which, in turn, helps others to continue on own own path. I cannot say how “The Messengers” will affect you, but I promise you, it will.

I feel so grateful for the release of this book at this moment in time. Of course, we would expect perfect timing from a book on synchronicity, but this book arrives like the caress of an owl’s wing. As chaos seems to spiral out of control, readers will find a strange sense of both comfort and awe in recognizing intricate harmony just beyond the veil. When all the old structures fail — in individual lives or in society — unanswerable questions arise. At such moments, remembering the Mystery becomes its own answer. I offer deep thanks to Mike Clelland for his gift to humanity in these challenging times.
