MAY 2019 SPECIALS

Integration Insights

This month brings a brand new special, because I sense so many people attempting the tricky task of integration. This 20-minute reading explores seeming opposites or tensions that your soul longs to honor in a harmonious way. Competing intentions can slow you down or block your path. Identifying this split — and finding new ways to bridge the gap — will summon new and more appropriate opportunities your way.

If you already know your internal drama, we can use this time to synthesize and redirect your energy into more productive and satisfying pursuits. If you have no idea what (or even if) you’re trying to integrate, but you feel frustrated, lost or stuck, this reading will identify which parts of you play tug of war instead of allowing you to thrive. Once you know and honor your multidimensional soul’s true desires, you can much more easily manifest them.

20 minutes for $77 if prepaid on or before 5/31/19. Special can be doubled for 40 minutes at $154. Please contact me to sign up.

Three For Two

Based on feedback from people going through big shifts right now, it seems time to offer this package deal again. Three hours for the price of two: save $222. This package can be used in whatever increments you choose — hour, 40-minute, half-hour, or 20-minute sessions — and for whatever services you’d like — Medical Intuition, Life Coaching, Astrology, Relationship Clarity, Soul Readings, or any other related service. $444 if prepaid on or before 5/31/19.

Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City Getaway

In honor of both of our birthdays, plus my 21-year TBI anniversary between them, David and I took a long weekend getaway to Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City, Michigan. We visited Traverse City last October, but we’d never been to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. Friday graced us with perfect hiking weather — sunny and mid-upper 50’s. The wind made it difficult to take clear photographs, but we managed to capture some of our time there.

The path to Empire Bluff felt like Faerie, and everyone leaving the bluff flashed big smiles and expanded hearts. For my part, I couldn’t stop smiling the moment we entered the green:

Happy Mother’s Day!

Just a quick, floral Happy Mother’s Day. To anyone who fulfills a Mother role — whether through biological motherhood, stepmothers, grandmothers who stand in for mom’s, or those who nurture others and our Mother Earth and Her creatures in profound and loving ways — thank you for being you. I wish each and every one of you a special day filled with love and beauty.

Integration Lifetimes and Human Evolution

This January 2012 post wants to go up again as more and more people sense and begin to embrace the integration process.

Laura Bruno's Blog

Readers and clients have recently asked me questions regarding what I call “integration lifetimes.” In a “regular” lifetime, people choose one or two things as their focus, attempting to resolve them so as to free themselves from specific karmic ties or continuing influence. Unlike regular lifetimes, “integration lifetimes” attempt to unite and utilize all previous incarnations — assembling them into something far beyond that which has come before. In essence, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Whereas regular lifetimes allow people to ignore “irrelevant” experiences, themes, relationships or gifts, integration lifetimes demand attention to and embracing of our greater being. For example, if a soul on a regular lifetime has major money and persecution issues to work through, but pre-incarnately decides to narrow this lifetime’s focus to resolving two particular relationships, then money and persecution problems will not affect the soul much during this lifetime —…

Early May Garden Update

This morning began with painting sunflowers and then moved into buying and planting marigolds, snapdragons, red and yellow chard, purple basil, Romaine and purple lettuce, dill, a hot pepper plant, and cilantro. I think I spied a volunteer sunflower poking through the leaves, and most of the perennials seem to have survived the Polar Vortex. I’ll get some collards and kale soon, but in the meantime, last year’s purple kale is making a run for its second season.

Our neighbor already caught and relocated one of two groundhogs who share our backyards. As usual, I hope the purple colors, onions, garlic, chives, fragrant herbs, and Expel deterrent around the front bed perimeter keep those groundhogs and bunnies safely out of front yard garden range. If so, then it’s just earwigs and slugs — always someone. 😉

In any case, it looks good for now. Thought I’d share some photos in the late afternoon light I find so magical:

Door Number 10: Hopi/Jewel in the Lotus

So grateful that not one, but two friends yesterday asked if I hadn’t already painted a Sun tarot card portal. I had forgotten the details of this one, commissioned and painted in 2010. I customized the imagery to the patron’s intentions and daydreams, which have all since come true, including a move to Pagosa Springs. I painted two portals in actual doorways of her home, both with strong nods to Pagosa Springs.

Preparing for that move became bittersweet, as both doors’ intentions had manifested, but she learned replacing the doors so she could bring these with her would cost thousands of dollars. I told her not to worry, that the portals had obviously already done their job.

My current Sun project has more traditional imagery, but with extra joyful exuberance. In so many ways it feels right to paint a Sun portal of my own. In the meantime, I enjoyed a trip down memory lane looking at the original photos of this fun and powerful portal.

Someone commissioned Door Number 10 from me, and I finished it about a week and a half ago. The photos are posted on Facebook, but I’ve had some requests for a more complete write-up here. Ask and you shall receive. 🙂

I really enjoyed painting this door! As my first commissioned door, it gave me a chance to code and design a portal to someone else’s intentions and dreams. This part of the process was as fun and rewarding as I anticipated. Once we decided on a theme — The Sun tarot card— I started asking her questions about quotes, mantras and important symbols in her life. By spending time in her home, I got a feel for her decorating style, and I also noticed that she happened to have a sun tattooed on her upper back. I decided to incorporate her tattoo into the door design, but…

Ask Astrid Fridays ~ The Rabbit’s Corner: Authenticity for Enrichment

There’s a message in here for many. Plus, I was just thinking of Nestor (Nestie) this morning, including her passing. I wasn’t sure of the date and then saw Tania’s post. Also synchronous to Tania’s post, a spider startled me in the sink as I was washing up my palette from a day of portal painting. For me, painting, decorating, and gardening are when I feel most alive and at one with my essence. What makes your heart sing?

Yesterday’s share from Astrid got postponed until this morning, due to a full day on both of our parts. But now I see why it is coming today instead, as it’s the 11 year anniversary of my twin soul rabbit’s transition back to the stars. It is Nestor who guided me to all of my bunnies, and even my Russian tortoise Gaia, after her departure. And it is Nestor whom Astrid is deeply connected to and is most like in her magickal essence.

Both Astrid and Nestor have been huge reminders to me of my own essence, and to be truly authentic to who I am, as well as to explore what that means for myself.

Recently I’ve seen a lot of spiders around, including a huge one on Astrid’s castle and one on my keyboard to my computer as I was typing.

Astrid has a special connection to spiders…
