Crossing our own boundaries: consent in the wake of “me too”

This is an important post for both men and women. I know so many men who’ve been violated, as well, on many levels, including the physical. These issues are relevant to anyone. As we each become more present and embodied, boundary violations become more obvious. Hopefully, courage to speak up and take action will follow. I’ve found the Bach Flower Remedy Star of Bethlehem quite helpful in dealing with trauma, whatever that means to someone.

One thing I really appreciate about this article is that it addresses the idea that trauma is whatever feels traumatic to the person experiencing it. We are not all the same, and so presence and respect for each person, especially with empaths, is crucial for healing. The painting of Lilith is over the top synchronous, too. Gotta love how un-subtle those sync’s are when we have eyes to see. Many thanks for the post!

The Oracle of SachaMama

The other day, I went to a yoga class. Many students were in attendance so the instructor had an assistant walking around, adjusting the yogis and yoginis. This bugged me right away when I saw this. I had just been listening to a podcast the night before that discussed students getting injured in yoga classes from overexerting themselves, and it really bothered me to watch the assistant put her hands on people and “correct” them without asking first. I told myself that if she came up to me, I would tell her no thanks. Towards the end of class while in pigeon pose, she came up behind me and started lifting my back leg upwards to make it the full pose. I had purposely not lifted my leg as I was feeling a tearing-like sensation in my knee. But instead of turning around and telling her no thanks, I breathed…

Common But Lesser Known Health Tips and Medical Intuitive Observations

This May 2013 post wants to go up again today.

Laura Bruno's Blog

Two categories of people tend to call me for Medical Intuitive Sessions: those who’ve been injured and/or ill for many years (sometimes decades) with no effective diagnosis and/or treatment … and those people who keep top notch tabs on their health and already know that every physical ailment has a mental, emotional, spiritual or energetic trigger. The second group tends to call very early in their health journey, usually right after their own arsenal of natural remedies and meditations fails to bring relief.

Lately, I’ve received many calls from a third category of clients, and I attribute this to the increased Awakening on our planet. These clients also exhibit “medical mystery” symptoms, but, unlike the first group, they’ve only been ill or injured for weeks rather than years. Unlike the second group, they’ve never consulted a Medical Intuitive or “psychic” before, but “something just tells” them that they need to…

Watch “March 2018 Energy Update – Lee Harris” on YouTube

Thanks to Lee Harris for the video report and to Dawn for the write-up. I definitely agree on both the creativity and the body response to people pleasing. Our bodies are excellent guides if we can’t decide. I call it “bumper bowling” when symptoms erupt to keep us more firmly on path. If we give ourselves permission just to follow our path without needing an excuse, then the bumpers (symptoms) don’t need to inflate.

Lee shares what the energy is about this month.

We need to check in with ourselves in regards to people pleasing. Coming up allot for people and releasing that. When we agree to do something but our body is not in alignment with that it’s a key that we are people pleasing.

Also noted was conflict. Conflicting opinions, sharp edges where that’s concerned. Lee suggested to focus on the positive outcome of change and not what is dissolving, which will help to ride the wave of creativity into the newer realms.

Lastly, creativity assists in allowing us to come into our purpose as we are all needed. Now through June there will be lots of focus on our intent and execution of what that might look like.

Thanks so much Lee Harris.

I walked into my office this afternoon to find “Arthur,” my crystal writing muse, positively glowing.


This is an untouched photo of the afternoon sun hitting an angle I’ve never seen before. Good sign, eh?

Also a quick reminder that Wednesday’s the last day to sign up for February Specials: “Creative Jump-Start” and/or the “Reiki Master Teacher Certification Special.” I’ve certainly experienced a creative jump-start this month. The Metaphysics of Lyme Disease book continues to light up with a new structure, expert contributors, and 40,000 words added since February 1.

Wishing everyone creativity and radiant joy as we move into March with Thursday’s glowing Full Moon.

The Communication Cure

I’m not sure why it’s suddenly surging in popularity today, but this one from June 2012 wants to go up again.

Laura Bruno's Blog

I think this is my favorite TED talk ever! “The CEO and founder of Intuitive Intelligence, Dr. Neha Sangwan is an Internal Medicine physician and corporate communication strategist empowering healthcare practitioners, organizational leaders and corporate employees in their own self-care. Dr. Sangwan is an international speaker and media spokeswoman on the topics of conflict resolution, leadership and team transition, power and hierarchy, stress management, and employee wellness.” She covers everything from the mind-body-spirit connection (Medical Intuitive awareness from an allopathic doctor!) to Saudi-Indian-American relations to media misrepresentations of conflict when there’s truly a connection among cultures. All in all, this is a fabulous, heartwarming talk. Enjoy!

BlogShare: Her Country Was Art – The Amazing Worlds and Life of Leonora Carrington

Oh, I love this! Thank you for sharing, Jamie. What a magical story and a great reminder to be true to our own creative process.

Sophia's Children

Elegant Mystery has shared several images of Leonora Carrington’s surrealist artwork, and the short documentary film about this amazing woman’s life.

What a wonderful, inspired, and deeply moving story!

Leonora Carrington’s story gives one example of what happens when a gifted imagination and artistry that’s ahead of its time meets the straight edges and mores of Victorian and early Industrialist worldviews and stringent expectations.

Her story also explores themes of home and exile, feeling like one doesn’t ‘fit in’, and shows the power of finding one’s tribe and kindreds, love and friendship, and a community that embraces and celebrates unusual gifts … and unusual people.

See the Elegant Mystery post here. (Thank you for sharing this!)

And find the short documentary film — rich with the wonderful surrealist paintings and a truly amazing story – here:

It’s well worth watching.

Big Love,

An Impromptu Photo Shoot

Oh, Kalamazoo Kal, it’s your day. At the risk of summoning you to our yard again, how could I not reblog this post? Thanks for all the entertainment last Summer and Fall. You do make me smile, but maybe not quite as much as the cat who chased you away.

Happy Groundhog Day, my fat friend. May you hibernate long and well, and when you awaken, may you eat only dandelions and clover.

Laura Bruno's Blog

Yesterday afternoon, I was taking one of my usual walks, admiring the magnificent trees and clouds:


I happened to wander past a field and copse where I know a groundhog lives, probably one of Kalamazoo Kal’s relatives. I suddenly thought, “It’s funny how often I’ve mentioned groundhogs — Tucker Rat Boy, Kalamazoo Kal — but never posted a photo of any of them on my blog. Of course, when I looked up, this friendly gal was out munching dinner in the autumn colors:


And then …

I thought, “Well, she’s very cute, but it’s just not Kal. I can never get a clear photo from the dining room windows due to the screens.” When I got home, I started reading on the BioMat in the back room, as I so often do. By now you’ve probably guessed who showed up for an impromptu photo shoot through the screenless part of…
