Happy Beltane! As always, I offer monthly specials based on a combination of special requests and intuition.

MAY 2022 SPECIALS

Astro Preparedness Special

This is a new special combining astrology and preparedness. The rest of 2022 brings intense, rare and once in a lifetime collective transits. These arise as chaos kicks and screams around the world. Such times can feel scary, but they also offer tremendous opportunities.

This 40-minute special looks at your natal chart and transits, as well as your current location and situation in order to help you empower yourself in the most joyful and beneficial ways. I will tailor these sessions to the individual client: some people will be more precisely impacted by coming events than others. We can focus more on the astrology, or draw more from my background in following dreams and intuitive guidance, or implementing permaculture and organic gardening. In any case, this session…

24 Years Post-TBI

May 19, 2022 marks 24 years since my life changing TBI. My brain injury occurred three days before my 25th birthday, so this next year also marks the year when things will flip to having lived longer post-TBI than I did prior to it. I turn 49 on May 22, 2022.

I’ve spoken a lot about this brain injury in interviews, and I wrote a whole book about my recovery. (If you’d like a copy of “If I Only Had a Brain Injury,” please contact me. It’s out of print and often crazy expensive on Amazon, but I have some signed copies available at a reasonable cost.) I’ve always considered this complete game changer the best thing that ever happened to me. Even though I’ve been medical intuitive my whole life, I would not be doing this kind of work without this injury.

Astrologically, I can see that I was due for something major. Ann Kreilkamp once looked at my transits at the time of my accident and told me, “Laura, if you had stayed in bed in the hotel room that day instead of getting in your car when your intuition said you’d get into a car accident, the ceiling would have fallen on your head!” Within moments of waking up at a red light, I felt this in the depths of my soul. “It” had happened. That mysterious, looming something that pursued me in recurring dreams was here. Now. And so, the journey began.

What a wild, beautiful, and yes, painful journey it has been. I feel I’m still on it, even though I consider myself fully recovered after four years of total disability. My brain got rewired. I am not the person I was the morning of May 19, 1998. My accident occurred at 1:11 p.m., and I catapulted into a new realm and a new way of being. I would not exchange that experience for anything.

Some of you have known me since before I hit my head. Many of you found me long after I tunneled through an underground initiation. I’m privileged to have walked with so many others through their own initiations, Dark Night(s) of the Soul, and breakthroughs to the other side. According to my doctors, I’m a walking miracle, and I humbly, gratefully and proudly wear that mantle. I experienced the touch of Grace in my recovery, but I also worked damned hard! It took grit, courage and everything I had and more to move from total disability to a thriving, happy, healthy life.

One of my doctors told me, “Laura, most people reach a comfortable state of disability and give up, but you’re different. You’re not satisfied with a comfortable state of disability.”

I was appalled at the suggestion that I would just give up. “That’s because it’s unacceptable. For me, there is NO comfortable state of disability.”

I didn’t know it back then, but I have an exact Grand Trine in Air of Sun-Moon-Pluto in my natal chart. Being under someone else’s thumb, at the whim of Workers Comp or insurance companies for the rest of my life? Not being able to support myself? Ummmmm, no! Absolutely not. Pluto gives you grit and resilience. He also gives you strength, and steely determination to reclaim your power. Pluto does not wallow in the role of victim. I refused to let injury, doctors, insurance companies or anybody else keep me down. It just wasn’t an option.

I share this story here, because I feel myself at that tipping point, where I’ve been alive longer post-TBI than pre-TBI. This feels significant, like flipping a switch. It also feels relevant on a more collective level, as the US continues its first exact Pluto conjunction since the nation’s birth. Things look bad right now — if you look with logic. My TBI threw out my rational side for four plus years. I learned to look through other lenses, to find the signs of healing along the way.

For those with eyes to see, there are many signs of rejuvenation, rebirth and resilience. Things will never be the same. We will face challenges, but sometimes what gets destroyed needed to go away. Only by removing the old — by doing a full gut rehab — do we find our beauty and full potential. I’m a walking miracle, and I know how to recognize miraculous potential. I see it all the time in clients, and I see it in the collective. Do not despair. Powerful transformation and healing are underway.

Thank you for being here now, on this wild, crazy planet at this particularly insane moment in history. As Albert Einstein said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” I, for one, always choose the miracle.

That is the secret to every recovery I’ve ever made.

Full Moon in Scorpio Total Lunar Eclipse ~ May 15-16, 2022

Just a reminder that this powerful Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse fast approaches. In addition to my earlier write-up, I recommend Pam Gregory’s video. She and I use different methods but arrived at very similar takes. I’ll link her video in the comments below.

Laura Bruno's Blog

Since we’re already in Eclipse Season, this feels important enough to post the write-up early. I’ll re-blog it closer to the actual date.

My May 2022 Forecast notes:

May 16 Full Moon in Scorpio, Lunar Eclipse, 12:14 a.m. Eastern US time. Also known as the Flower Moon, this is a South Node Eclipse that asks us to adapt quickly to changing situations. As flowers move from bud to bloom to faded petals to seed, we, too, need to embrace ever evolving shifts. The South Node brings a karmic flavor to any collective Shadow Work. With Uranus near the Sun point, we can expect rebellious, revolutionary and liberating insights to trigger some of the karmic release.

This is a Total Lunar Eclipse, which makes it even more powerful. According to Dane Rudhyar, the Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon point is:

A Potent Dream: “My Brother, the Artist”

I just happened upon this post again from March 2, 2022 — before Elon Musk took so much spotlight for the purchase of Twitter. I shared my February 27 dream, which featured one of the children of a woman like Maye Musk — Elon’s mom — leaving the elite. I haven’t (consciously) blogged about Elon Musk, as I have had mixed feelings about him due to his promotion of AI. I did, however, pull an oracle card asking about his intentions with the Twitter purchase. That card indicated a desire for intimacy with humanity — for “real” conversations. This tracked with his expressed intention, but I didn’t go any further with my queries or tuning in.

Fast forward to today when I landed on this dream posted prior to ANY of the Elon Musk drama. I don’t claim to know the answers, but a lot of people have asked my take. Here is — apparently — my Dream Guys’ commentary, before it happened. Food for thought!

Laura Bruno's Blog

This feels like a collective dream — like “my brother” represents much of humanity right now. Immediately after writing down the dream, I logged onto my blog and wrote the March 2, 2022 ~ New Moon in Pisces post. Since the dream feels related to today’s New Moon, I’ll share it here on the actual New Moon day. I’ve left this unedited, so please excuse the transcribed dream dialog, where I drop the f-bomb. The dream feels cinematic and potent. I didn’t want to diminish its power by altering the words. If this offends you, please feel free to skip this post. 🙂

2/27/2022

2:57 a.m.

“My Brother, the Artist”

Awoke from a dream that seems important enough to get up and write it down. I was one of several children — three or four — of a larger than life mother who seemed to work in the fashion industry.

Spring: It’s Happening

Each day brings more blooms, blossoms and hints of more to come. I always say that Fall planted bulbs are the best presents I ever give myself. Come April, nothing cheers my heart more than bright colors and infinite shades of green. Our yard this morning:

First Day at the Beach and Dunes

It feels like Spring 2022 has finally begun. Today we had a taste of Summer with a high of 84 degrees, but we’ll be back to snow flurries and rain later this week. We took the opportunity to head to Van Buren State Park on Lake Michigan. This place has lots of erosion and downed trees, but we love the changing scenery and stretch of beach for walking.

When we got there, David said, “Is it just me or are there a lot more downed trees than the last time? I suspect there have been MANY things in motion all this time of which we’re only just now seeing the signs.” That seems true on several levels! In any case, I thought I’d share some of our day:

I always find abstract art on this beach:

I also got to test my new Solbari SPF 50+ arm sleeves. These are bamboo fabric tubes that gently grip your upper arms. Thumb holes allow the sleeves to cover your hands, too. I got these for gardening, as they allow you to turn short sleeve shirts into sun protective gear. We walked along the water during peak sun hours, and I’m happy to report, these sleeves work well. So did the SPF 50+ hat. When we finished our walk, I put the sleeves in my purse. Easy, peasy. Sometimes I like having options that go beyond sunscreen. My fair Celtic skin needs all the help it can get!

For some reason, the stark contrasts of sky, sand, roots, rocks and driftwood make us both feel so alive. Another lovely day!

Happy Earth Day!

Dear Mama Earth,

Happy Earth Day!

In honor of you, I was going to write a long blog post calling for actual detoxifying, beautifying and protective solutions — not just green-washing of other agendas in the name of “sustainability.” Then I realized I painted a portal for that very thing, way back in February 2014. I’ve already reblogged it, so I’ll just link to it again here. Sorry it’s taking so long to fully unfold. May it become so!

With so much love and gratitude,

Laura

More Signs of Spring

The winds of change are blowing strong, and early flowers bob and whirl their colors around the yard. Here are a few recent photos, including hints of cherry blossoms, hellebores (thank you, Karen!), early giant hyacinths, Siberian squill, forsythia and the first daffodil to bloom. Enjoy!

Siberian squill

Many seeds I planted outside on Spring Equinox finally have sprouts. I also started some less hardy crops indoors on the weekend. They’re sprouting, too. In these early days of Spring little signs of life inspire faith in those larger winds of change. All these flowers also feed early pollinators in search of a yard. 🙂

Dream “Vision” Manifestation

On March 30, I sent the following as an email to my friend Ann Kreilkamp, who enjoys hearing some of my bizarre local encounters. For some reason I feel nudged to share it here, too:

I just had a fun little adventure you might like. A month or so ago I dreamed about finding and being urged to buy a pair of green metal framed glasses. I wondered if these would show up in waking life, because my dreams seem to show me certain pieces of clothing that later appear. Well, I got a nudge to go to Rx Optical today and refill our glasses cleaner spray. I also thought I’d look for the green metal framed glasses there. I looked around, and they had nothing like that, so I asked, “You don’t, by chance, have any green metal framed glasses, do you?”

She about fell out of her chair, got up, and said, “Wait a minute.” She returned with a pair and said, “These JUST came in. I mean JUST. We don’t even have a price tag on them yet.”

I tried them on, and they fit perfectly. They looked exactly like my dream glasses, so I bought them. We had a somewhat extended conversation about dreams since I was the third person to tell her my dream today. 

Also, it was my first time wearing a new raincoat, because it’s pouring outside and the right temperature for a raincoat. I have tried to find the right raincoat since 2012 because the one I had was kind of short on me, I had lost the belt and it was too tight in the shoulders. I couldn’t find anything I liked as well, until two weeks ago, this coat appeared for just long enough for me to purchase it online. By the time I finished it was no longer available. 

While I sat waiting to pay for the new glasses, one of the doctors there — a super funky black woman with awesome braids — came out and said, “I LOVE your raincoat.” She waxed rhapsodic about it for several minutes, and I said, “Thank you. It was a ten year search. Seriously. I finally found it.” 

Then another woman who was trying on glasses and the person helping her got super interested in the glasses I was wearing. I said, “Thank you, but these are the ones I came in wearing, not the dream glasses.” I thought they had overheard the conversation and that this is why they started talking with me. Nope! I needed to explain the story again and then the other associate said, “Well, let’s see them!”

So I put them on, and she said, “The vibe, the vibe! I love the vibe. They’re the perfect vibe.”

Anyway, it was a rainy manifestation adventure. The other odd thing is that the dream with the green glasses frames featured a house quite similar to the house in a movie we started watching last night. The movie is called Blithe Spirit [the 2020 version]. I had planned to refill the glasses cleaner yesterday but got the sense to “Wait.” Today, I got a “Go,” so I went. The timing not only checked out that the frames had just arrived — they would not have been there yesterday — but also matched up with the house in the movie similar to the house that was almost its own character in my dream.

Here’s the raincoat in case you wondered:

LOL, this is how I do “service” in Kalamazoo. I show up in stores or at the chiropractor or doctor’s office with some kind of weird psychic unfolding that generates odd conversations. Kinda fun — if someone needs to do this kind of “work,” I’m game. 🙂

Wow, I just reread my green frame glasses dream, and it even had a lot of the plot of last night’s movie!

[End of the email to Ann.]

Also, in the dream, the people at the dream optician place kept effusively fawning over me like they did in the real life shop. Apparently, I had written highly successful novels and was a household name, but very down to earth.

Within the 2/23/2022 dream, I laughed when our financial advisor asked if I could use a new pair of glasses. “I have SO many frames. The last thing I need is another pair of glasses!” Yet he insisted I should look at frames, said they would have something for me and strongly advised me to get them. When you routinely have precognitive dreams, and your financial advisor tells you in a dream to do something, it’s wise to pay attention!

In the dream, these particular frames came in two colors — the green I ended up purchasing and a deep maroon. The woman who sold me the glasses in waking life said that she had tried on the maroon pair right when they arrived earlier that day. She said they didn’t suit her face, but the color would have matched her hair. We agreed that the green ones were for me, and we spoke more about the power of dreams.

Well, my new glasses arrived. This is not a glamour shot, LOL! It’s a no makeup, just got out of the shower after a full week of sessions shot, but you can see the Harry Potter-esque frames. They look exactly like the frames in the dream. I’m curious what else they’ll bring into my life.
