Curious Non-Attachment

This post from seven years ago wants up again. It popped up in a very timely way, as I happened to write to someone to remember the affirmation, “I am always in the right place at the right time doing the right thing,” just as she herself was emailing me “right time, right place and all that.” And there that message is bolded at the beginning of this synchronously popped up post!

Reading through the post, it’s a reading I did over seven years ago, but it strikes me that we face similar energies and challenges right now. Will we go Ace of Swords or Five of Wands? Focus our thoughts and embrace the power of the mental realm, or allow ourselves to be torn apart by inner and outer conflict that need not really matter? We always have a choice in how we react to, respond to or embrace information. We always have a choice in how we approach our inner and outer lives. Now seems like a very good time to remember this. Big blessings, peace and love …. Laura

A lot of energies and possibilities are trying to assert themselves today and in the very near future. Some of those energies and possibilities may appear quite shocking if you have not prepared yourself to redirect your focus and elevate your vibration. There are so many agendas jostling for control right now that your best security remains — as always — affirming and knowing that you are always in the right place at the right time doing the right thing.

I pulled three tarot cards and a Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Card today, specifically asking about the apparent disconnect between my own fabulously optimistic feelings and some of the news seeping through my various (3D and intuitive) pipelines. Those cards also confirmed what I’ve been feeling: life as we know it may get very strange very soon, and how that affects us depends on how we respond. We can use…

Door Number 5: King of Cups aka Chiron

Every once in awhile, a portal door “reactivates” itself. They hold space, energy and intentions all the time, but periodically, they announce themselves as “up,” or maybe I should say, “open.”

This one’s been asserting itself very strongly for a year and a half now, as I’ve learned so much more about the astrology of Chiron. When I painted this door back in April 2010, I “downloaded” the entire thing from dreams and synchronicities. I had no idea what I was painting — or rather, I sensed the essence of each portal, without understanding its vastness or the ways its energies would unfold in “real” life. That’s the case with all my doors, but in particular, this one came through fully formed, even including its own key when I found the door after “knowing” I’d include the Hafiz poem “Dropping Keys” on the back.

This door now stands in our living room, next to Door “Number 6: Freya and Frigga,” which features the word “Return” written in Runes where “Chiron” is written in Greek on the King of Cups door. Together, the doors read “Chiron Return,” and as synchronicity would have it, the Composite Chart for David and me has been undergoing its Chiron Return during the time the door’s been so active!

This morning, whispers of the poem kept dancing through my mind, so I’ll post it here, along with reblogging the original portal post:

Dropping Keys

The small man
Builds cages
For everyone
He
Knows
While the sage,
Who has to duck his head
When the moon is low,
Keeps dropping keys all night long
For the
Beautiful
Rowdy
Prisoners.

–Hafiz

I don’t know why it surprises me, but these portal doors continue to reactivate themselves, sometimes falling, or me falling into them, or else coming up in themes, quotes or images. The journey continues to unfold in magical and eerily delightful ways.

Door Number 5 features an interpretation of the King of Cups card from the Tarot, along with Chiron, the very first centaur and teacher of healing to most of the Ancient Greeks. The Greek writing in the center of the door spells out “Chiron.” Among the man-horse creatures known as centaurs, Chiron held highest honors as a compassionate healer and guide. Paired with the emotionally balanced, “all heart” King of Cups, he represents the balanced masculine side of healing and transmutation.

The poem on top is by Hafiz:

Dropping Keys

The small man
Builds cages
For everyone
He
Knows
While the sage,
Who has to duck his head
When the moon is low,
Keeps dropping keys all night long
For the
Beautiful
Rowdy
Prisoners.

I had already chosen to use this poem on this door, so it was quite a fun synchronicity that this door actually contained a…

Steven Forrest ~ Healing the Collective Hurt

Astrologer Steven Forrest’s latest newsletter really highlights and explains October’s energies as they relate to the Moon’s Nodes — those spots associated with individual and collective karma and life path. Wherever our own natal North and South Nodes are, we still inhabit a collective realm. For some people, the current Node positions are extremely relevant in composite or progressed charts, even if you know nothing of astrology. Because these energies get triggered from deep, dark, chthonic healing Scorpio, paying attention to the heads up makes sense. You can read Steven’s stellar insights here.

September 2019 Specials

Five more days for these. October will feature different specials. ❤

Laura Bruno's Blog

I haven’t forgotten! I’ve been so busy with both work and play that I’m only now getting a chance to post September 2019 Specials. I could have done so on the first but wanted to get Timothy Glenn’s message out there right away.  Based on the number of recent sessions I did for people who would like to continue with extra support while making the recommended changes, I decided to extend August’s Three for Two Special for another month. I’m not sure if I will offer it again in 2019, but I feel led to keep offering it through September 2019.

Many people seem poised to make giant leaps that seem sudden, even though they’ve taken years of preparation. During such times, it helps to have someone hold the energy of the new. I’m happy and honored to do that. Sometimes it takes an objective, non-involved eye to spot glitches…

Being Present to Guidance & Support

Happy Equinox! This is a sweet, powerful and timely share from Tania Marie. She and I always tend to parallel, and not surprisingly, I’ve been having enormous levels of synchronicities the past few weeks. During our vacation week with friends, I also saw NINE dead raccoons on the side of the road, which seems significant in both the finality of nine, and the idea of the veils/masks dropping away. Tania shares some good insights about how to stay more present in life. Big hugs and enjoy the shifting energies, wherever and whenever they may lead. ❤️

Tania Marie

I’ve shared a lot about messages, signs, symbolism, prophetic and revealing dreams, and even Earth angels in disguise over the years. The one thing that always stands out in receiving these reflections and guidance, is presence. When we are willing to be more present in our lives, we are more open to seeing, hearing, feeling, and receiving the gifts all around us. We often are being shown answers to questions we’ve asked, are receiving guidance about things we’ve been wondering, or are being gifted little treasures and pearls of wisdom when we think we are all alone and without hope.

I find that more and more people are interested about finding meaning in things they experience in one form or another and I often get a lot of messages asking me my take on things showing up for them.

I’ve been seeing how more and more people are experiencing these…

Blast from the Past

This 2014 post reminiscing about Tania’s September 2010 visit wants to go up again. Sweet, giggly memories! That time period keeps coming up, as it was very significant in both our lives —and that visit set the stage for massive shifts. I love my magical Faery Twin. A collective toast to adventures and friendship! ❤️

Last night, I texted my sweet, silly, favorite traveling buddy Tania Marie that she would “be happy because I gave myself bangs again.” I knew she’d get a kick out of that simple text, and sure enough, we both took a stroll down memory lane back to when she visited me in Chicago in 2010. For some bizarre reason, the first thing we did together after honoring my favorite tree on the shores of Lake Michigan that I visited every day while living there …

… was hack off part of my hair. We then spent the rest of the trip “reclaiming” Rockefeller, Draco, Egyptian and big bankster areas — a whirlwind faery giggle fest through some of the least likely spots you’d expect to find a faery.

The next day, we climbed all 271, windy steps to the top of Rockefeller…

Gardens and Travels

The light’s begun to shift, and autumn colors appear in blooms, if not on leaves yet. Last Saturday afternoon, my friend Paula and I went to Meijer Sculpture Gardens. She grew up in Michigan and is even more of a CPL (Crazy Plant Lady) than I am. When she told me she’d never visited the gardens, I knew we had to go together. We logged over 4 miles just wandering around the art, plants and trees. So much fun and so much beauty! This gorgeous amaranth amidst sunflowers, squash and corn made me so happy:
