Lunaria and Fancy Tulips

This Lunaria comes all the way from Bealtaine Cottage in Ireland! Well, the seeds did. I got them from Colette a few years ago, and the Lunaria has finally found its favorite spot at Faery Hof:

The perennial tulips I fell in love with two years ago at Tulip Fest in Holland, Michigan have begun their show: Continue reading

Angels, Spirit Guides and Pets

This 2008 post wants to go up again. So often animal friends announce and confirm answered prayers. I always tell people, “When you pray, expect an answer. Don’t forget to ask for the ability to recognize those signs and guidance.” Animals can also guide and nudge us in the right direction. They’re wonderful triggers for Shadow Work, courage, and unconditional compassion. If your furry, scaly or feathered friend has been acting strange lately, see if anything here sparks a realization.

If you have recently asked for help, guidance and protection from angels and/or spirit guides, you might notice your pets acting rather odd.  Perhaps they seem agitated, nervous, or extra loving to you.  Maybe they look confused or seem extra needy.  You might even find them staring at you with questioning eyes, almost as if to say, “Hello?  What do you want me to do here?”  If they continue to receive no guidance from you, they may soon exhibit signs of frustration, even though you find nothing wrong.

(The Annunciation, by animal lover Leonardo da Vinci)

Under the circumstances, such behavior actually makes sense.  When you “invite” or “invoke” help and visitations from angels, animal spirits and other spirit guides, you probably don’t “see” such beings surrounding you.  Indeed, most people admit that seeing an angel would make them question their sanity!  Even those who want to see something before believing in it, often secretly prefer clairaudient messages to clairvoyant…

April 2017 Specials ~ Last Call for These Offerings

Hard to believe how fast 2017 is flying by. With the Schumann resonance rising and the winds of change swirling about, I wanted to post this as a heads up regarding some upcoming changes in my own life and work. For those interested, April is the last chance for these particular specials at these rates. Wishing everyone a powerful, joyful transformation!

Laura Bruno's Blog

As I mentioned last week, I’m in process of restructuring rates, session lengths, policies and offerings. I have not raised rates in 10 years but will begin doing so in May, in order to bring things more into alignment with my 16 years of professional experience as an intuitive reader and over ten years as a Life Coach. I’ve also been considering various requests over the years for additional services, classes, and mentorship programs, and I’m discerning which, if any, of those I feel led to offer at this time. My decision to restructure services and rates comes after much prayer, contemplation and synchronous nudges. I celebrate the new, even as it continues to reveal itself.

With our upcoming move — date and exact location TBD — I know I will make additional shifts once I get a sense of how many local classes I begin teaching in the new…

Easter Flowers

I picked these beauties for David’s parents — the tulip for his Dutch dad and a cheery mix of daffodils for his mom. Thought I’d share some loveliness here, too:

Jaime Meyer ~ Good Friday and the Great Mother

Time to repost this gem from Jaime Meyer. Happy Easter to those who celebrate. Even if you do not follow a Christian tradition, from a mythological and energetic perspective, this time offers a potent opportunity for symbolic death and rebirth. Tap into that energy and watch things shift!

Laura Bruno's Blog

Thanks to Joe for sending me Jaime Meyer‘s recent newsletter message, and many thanks to Jaime for permission to share this wonderful piece that restores the Great Mother to Her original place in the Christian Mystery. I love that so many of the people honoring and celebrating the re-emergence of the Divine and Sacred Feminine happen to be men! For your consideration and integration:

Good Friday and the Great Mother
By Jaime Meyer

There’s so much wrong and unhealthy with our Jesus story. But I want to speak about what is right but hidden from us.

I love the idea that Spirit comes to us to forgive us. Forgiveness is a powerful and necessary thing, for to be human is to make mistakes that require forgiveness. Or as the shamanic tradition might frame it: we make mistakes that require ceremonies for putting things back in energetic balance again.

Recycled Seed Starting Materials: Paper Pots, Watering Bottles, and Venetian Blind Labels

Great tips here!

The Druid's Garden

Seedlings growing in recycled materials! Seedlings growing in recycled materials!

The spring is a wonderful time to begin starting your seeds–and here in Western PA, we just crossed the “eight weeks before last frost” threshold, so it is a bit of an urgent matter! This means that this weekend is the time to start many of the warm season crops and perennial herbs. Today’s post takes a “recycled” spin on seed starting to share with you a number of tricks for seed starting all using recycled and repurposed materials (drawing upon the permaculture principle, “waste is a resource”). For these seed starting options, we are making use of many typical “trash” and “recycle bin” products: newspaper, styrofoam take-out trays, two-liter soda bottles, and Venetian blinds. Even if your household doesn’t produce this stuff yourself, a simple walk down any suburban or town street will likely yield more of these materials than you’ll likely ever…

April Energy Update from Lee Harris – The End of ‘The Love and Light Brigade’ & The Rawness of Re-patterning

As usual, Lee is spot on about the energies! This month’s forecast includes tips about boundaries, discernment and shifts happening especially for habitual lightworkers. Time to make sure you’re giving and receiving in balanced ways. Thanks to Tania for the additional thoughts included before Lee’s video.

Tania Marie's Blog

I think many of you will find this month’s energy update insightful and helpful. These themes have been showing up with client sessions and with many people I know. It’s time to be discerning with your energy in order to have more energy to be able to keep channeling and stay balanced. It seems counter-intuitive to love and light people, but Lee explains this well, so I hope you’ll tune in. Everything is in process of re-patterning so the new will become natural and this includes really feeling into what you want to be doing, rather than what you think you should be doing. Being on path is simply being in alignment with your life force energy, driving passions, and desires of well being.
