Starfish Symbolism – Exploring the Magick of these “Star People”

I felt called to repost this January post of Tania Marie’s in context of some other “magickal” things I’ve noticed lately. First of all, people around the country have discovered the phenomenon of “chemically nucleated snow,” which burns, turns black and smells like plastic or other chemicals. I experimented on our snow, and it melted without chemical odor, but later learned from people in Ohio, Northern Indiana and Michigan that THEIR snow turned black and stunk of chemicals!

One difference? I’ve got orgone pucks around our property, and I work daily with Nature Spirits, elementals, Runes and the Faery Realm to protect and filter our property. Then, yesterday, I felt led to repost my own earlier dream about an infinity sign of bees. A magickal, Faery Realm working beekeeper shared that HER and a neighbors’ bees are gathering nectar from some mysterious winter source. Despite the extreme cold, the queens are laying — in preparation for something. This comment preceded my stumbling upon an article about colony collapse disorder and EMF’s and pesticides killing the bees. Both of these unusual experiences reminded me of my dear friend, Tania, another one who loves the Earth and works daily with crystals, Nature Spirits and the Faery Realm. Tania lives in Southern California, where we hear so many reports of “melting starfish” from Fukushima radiation or some other unknown cause. Yet, Tania walks along the beaches and finds gorgeous, living starfish. Today, Drunvalo Melchizedek released a video about removing radiation by intention. My point in sharing these details is that negative, toxic, poisonous things can and do shift when we get in touch with larger allies, energy and power. As the Hopi say, “We are the ones we have been waiting for!” Please, find ways to empower and heal your little corner of heaven on Earth. Blessed Be!

Every day of the weekend I get out in nature hiking in the mountains or hills and walking on the beach to be in the elements I love so much and to recharge. Each time is always a beautiful and invigorating experience, but yesterday had to be one of, if not the most magickal beach days yet.

The tide was out unusually farther than it has been in ages (according to the wildlife naturalist that strolls the beaches to educate, as this beach is protected as an underwater haven), which revealed a rare sighting of so many Starfish in one place in the wild that I have ever seen – had to be like a 100 or more! These particular ones we saw are “Ochre Stars” and range from orange to purple and every variation in between.

These stunning beings brought out the little girl in me that was in…

Overgiving, Resentment and Breast Cancer

I’ve now had numerous people contact me with the same general follow-up question to my Medical Intuitive Observations about Fukushima Radiation post. Essentially, these people have asked if I’m aware of the connection between “overgiving” and breast cancer, and — given this connection — shouldn’t I amend what I’ve said about potential radiation and breast cancer in Marin County?

I hope this article further illustrates what I’ve attempted to share. Again, please take what resonates and leave the rest. These articles are based upon my own observations and thousands of Medical Intuitive and Life Coaching sessions, which began before I even started offering these readings professionally in 2001. Although I’ve done a lot of readings and helped a lot of friends and family members over the decades, I do not claim to have “the one right answer” all the time. It’s always difficult to write a catch-all article for anything, due to so many individual facets and layers of living and healing; however, when I publish general observations, I do so from a place of very obvious (to me) long-term patterns. I have not worked with every breast cancer survivor, nor do I know everyone in Marin County.

Neither do I intimately know the inner process of every single frustrated artist, caregiver or person who feels called to collect healing modalities without paying the blessings forward in some tangible offerings to community. I don’t suggest that everyone needs to become a healer, but rather that the process of joyfully offering your deepest, heartfelt gifts to the world — whatever these are — has a noticeable, consistent healing effect. A commenter on Zen Gardner’s site referenced the Gospel of Thomas: “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” That’s essentially my observation here and in the Fukushima article. Radiation acts as a catalyst and an amplifier of whatever dynamic already exists inside.

In response to the idea that breast cancer comes from “overgiving,” I’ve replied enough times now that it feels right to share this publicly:

Yes, I am familiar with the overgiving thesis; however, in my own work, I have noticed that it is the RESENTMENT that causes the toxicity, regardless of the actual degree of overgiving. If someone resents what she perceives as overgiving, then sometimes that turns into a need to “get this off my chest.” When the soul cries out for change but the person refuses to shift the energies, then the body expresses a symbolic then literal “need” for mastectomy.

I have known extreme narcissists to develop the same pattern of breast cancer because they felt the resentment, even when the woman was actually quite an energy vampire in relationships. The perception of overgiving is much more relevant than the actual quantity of giving. Many times the perception is correct, but I find it so interesting (and consistent) about the resentment. All that talk of “joyful giving” is really a good and healthy thing — if you can’t give joyfully, then there comes a point where it is healthier not to give (and to be honest with yourself about why you feel you cannot do so). Otherwise, both soul and body will demand changes to the attitude/circumstances around giving.

Breast Health: Some Medical Intuitive Observations

Medical Intuition is the ability to access information from a person’s body and surrounding energy field, which exists on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. With so many women suffering from breast cancer or monthly breast pain, I thought I’d offer some Medical Intuitive insights on breast health. In this area, prevention works especially well. I’ve divided this post into physical, mental, emotional and spiritual patterns I frequently see affecting breast health. Please keep in mind that I do not intend this article as medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. I’m only sharing patterns I’ve noticed in nearly eight years nearly 13 years as a practicing Medical Intuitive.

Physical Factors

1) Diet. The American Cancer Society recognizes the role of antioxidants from fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds as protective against free radical damage associated with cancer. Some studies have also shown correlations between heavy meat-eating, colon cancer, and breast cancer. For a comprehensive list of FAQ’s about the ACS research on various foods and supplements, please click here.

Eating lower on the food chain does seem to help people, but I have known plenty of vegetarians and vegans who still got breast cancer. Clearly diet doesn’t change everything, but it does seem to offer some protection. I have noticed some correlation between following a 100% raw vegan diet (organic when possible) and the cessation of monthly PMS-related breast pain.

2) Vitamin D-deficiency. Dr. Mercola and Dr. John Jacob Cannell have both raised the awareness of Vitamin D’s importance in overall health, including breast cancer reduction. Having worked with several intuitive clients for whom Vitamin D deficiency came up as an issue for testing, I’ll say that so far, my Medical Intuitive observations seem to agree with what these doctors share; however, I’ll let them explain the science!

3) Self-Breast-Massage. Sluggish lymph causes much of the pain of tender breasts, and it can also put people more at risk for future breast cancer. You can get that lymph flowing through brisk, bouncy walks without a bra, jumping on a rebounder, or by doing a self-breast-massage. This short YouTube video shows you exactly which movements will pump the lymph out of your breasts in a healthy way. Highly recommended!

4 ) Reiki. This ancient form of energy healing operates on all the levels, including physical. Because stress activates potential for all health issues, especially those affecting the breasts, Reiki’s relaxing effect supports breast health. As a non-invasive treatment, Reiki also allows a woman with breast cancer to receive physical nurturing without the risk of spreading tumors. For more on Reiki for breast cancer, please click here.

Mental/Emotional Factors

1) As part of the Heart Chakra, the breasts house our deepest emotional wounds and our greatest capacity for love. Resentment aggravates the breast tissues as much as physical factors like caffeine! Practice forgiveness for breast health. If you have trouble letting go, you might find this meditation helpful.

2) Combat Candida. You might wonder why I list Candida here instead of under “Physical Factors.” True, yeast overgrowth affects the physical body, but it also thrives in thought and emotional patterns that negatively affect breast health. Candida resonates with “victim.” A particular kind of victim: the kind of victim that feels overburdened by life, that feels like everyone walks all over her. The kind of victim that carries a lot of unexpressed resentments and worries. The kind of victim who just can’t seem to move beyond the inertia of current life circumstances.

Candida thrives in this environment! You can take all the pau d’arco tea, probiotics, and oil of oregano you like, but if you don’t change the mental/emotional patterns, you’ll have a very difficult time ousting your Candida. Meanwhile, you’ll have all that grief, mild depression, and resentment festering in your Heart Chakra. Not good!

If you catch yourself acting like an oppressed person, shift that energy immediately. You create your external world, and your experience of the external dramatically influences your internal terrain. For the sake of your breasts (and your happiness), take steps to move beyond your self-imposed limitations.

3) Get Creative. The breasts and arms extend from our hearts. Breasts produce milk to nurse babies, and arms produce artwork, healing, writing and hugs. The Heart Chakra wants to create. If you do not channel that creativity into some positive flow, the urge for creativity may not disappear. Cancer is a very creative disease.

Even if you’ve never painted before in your life; even if you’ve never considered yourself a healer: get some energy flowing through that Heart Chakra! Hug a stranger. Awaken your healing gifts. Embrace your desire to beautify your surroundings. Doing so may just save your boobs.

4) Love Your Breasts. While I have never read any official study on this topic, I have noticed that women who have difficulty accepting their breasts or femininity often develop breast cancer or other problems with the breasts.

Remember, the body responds to your thoughts, attitudes and the deepest longings of your soul. If the body hears that you hate your breasts, it may take you at your word and orchestrate a removal of them via mastectomy. As part of your Heart Chakra, the breasts listen very closely to the cries of the heart. If you want healthy breasts, let them know you love them. And let your softer, feminine side know that it’s ok to be a woman. In fact, it’s beautiful, and wonderful and you honor the breasts as two of those obviously feminine markers.

In February 2009, Rory Freedman of Skinny Bitch fame wrote a great post called Boobs. Go ahead; follow Rory’s lead. Release your inner diva and let those breasts know how much you love ‘em!

Spiritual Factors

Breast issues encourage humans to explore the tender realm of the heart as an evolutionary portal. Offering ourselves as channels for unconditional compassion for humanity, the galaxy and beyond supports the breasts. So does honoring Mother Earth. More than any other part of the body, breasts symbolize Motherhood. Awakening the Goddess within, loving Earth’s creatures and Nature, and cultivating a spirit of generosity all resonate with the wisdom and guidance of our breasts.

When we actively engage and listen to our bodies, they can speak in gentle whispers instead of screaming for our attention with pain or disease. With communication and love, body and soul become intimate, and we radiate their joy.

Follow-Up to the Fukushima Post

My Medical Intuitive Observations about Fukushima Radiation post triggered some appreciative, insightful and also intensely reactive comments on other blogs, raising a few points that I feel led to address here in case they add additional clarity for people. I also encourage people to check out the many inspired and heart-full comments left on the original post here. I have not had time to address each person individually, but I do appreciate everyone who has shared their experiences, opinions and wisdom. I enjoy hearing from you, and I love that people are paying it forward even through this blog.

A discussion came up following my article, re-posted on Jean Haines’ blog, regarding over-giving not healing people, with specific reference to Lyme Disease as something that tends to plague over-givers. Just wanted to share my responses here for clarity:

laurabruno says:
Thank you for opening this discussion. From the context of my own blog readers, this topic has been covered in many previous posts, including on Lyme Disease, finding boundaries with narcissists and reinvesting one’s energy into appropriately balanced channels that give back, too. This article on its own simply shares what I have noticed happening, which as I said, may only be with a small percentage of people or as my last paragraphs say, we may all just be FUK’d and need a miracle. Here is my Lyme article. I have worked with many Lyme clients, helped my ex husband heal from Lyme and also recovered from it myself. https://laurabruno.wordpress.com/2009/09/24/healing-lyme-disease/

Many Blessings and thank you for raising these issues here, since Jean’s readers haven’t had two years of me talking about boundaries. 🙂

Also, just to clarify that I am referring to a difference between codependent over giving and being generous from the deepest core of soul and Self –the difference between depletion and radiance. 🙂

—-

On a different blog, which I won’t name here so as not to fuel the fires over there, my Medical Intuitive Observations about Fukushima Radiation article triggered accusations of me being everything from:

1) A fundamentalist Christian Bible-thumper (still completely tickled about that one!) 😉

2) The initiator of dark Arconic energy attacks (perhaps even being part of the off-world Arconic control network believed to be responsible for all the evils on this planet)

3) An un-evolved, greedy egomaniac who has no business offering advice or “healing”

[Update and Full disclosure: this is a conflation of two people’s ongoing comments, the originals of which you can read by clicking here, since G linked to this post from the one I had hoped not to create further fire storms on. One commenter took umbrage at this summary, and, yes, discerning readers will likely find the original comments far more eye-opening than my summary.]

4) “Just plain silly.” “Really a little silly.”

As a side note for people wanting to insult me or hurt my feelings: I take the word “silly” (from the original “Seelie”) as a high compliment, and probably always will. Those who know me will know why. 😉

Anyway, I’m not going to post all the comments, as the summary above covers most of the ones I’d like to address here. I’ll just post my replies below, in case they clarify things that others wondered but didn’t ask:

Laura Bruno:

Wow, P_____, I am sorry you felt so non-resonant with this article and took one Bible verse as hammering you over the head with guilt and shame. If you were familiar with my work, you would know that I have had my own kundalini awakening from a 1998 brain injury, volunteer extensively in my community, and that I am anything but a fundamentalist Bible thumper. This is one of only a few Bible passages I’ve ever quoted over the years on my blog, and I do not personally practice that tradition. I wish you much healing or peace or whatever it is you would most love, and I will simply reiterate this bolded part of the article:

“All of which is to say: take my observations however you will. I offer them here not as a definitive, provable conclusion, but rather in hopes that they may help people to live more fully, generously and healthily in these extremely challenging and exciting times.”

If you didn’t take them that way, then my observations are not a match for you. I’ve now received personal emails and comments from dozens of people who felt truly loved and understood by this post. I wish you heartfelt comfort through yourself, Spirit or someone else with whom you resonate. Peace … Laura

And after the above reply resulted in more strongly worded variants of items 2 thru 4 above:

S______ and P_____, I wish you both well and will just reiterate what I have shared in the article, disclaimers and all, including the idea that sharing one’s gifts does not need to mean everyone quits their day job and becomes a healer. Shoveling a neighbor’s driveway can be a gift — and I have no doubt P____ would have experienced it as such. Art, poetry and hand me down clothes can be a gift. My point was and remains to do what you can with what you have wherever you are.

I shared about the kundalini awakening to attempt to let P____ know that if she had delved a little deeper, she would have found some similarities and sympathy from me rather than an attack. Perhaps these Julian Rose articles articulate my underlying point far better than I apparently have in my article:

http://www.changingcourseforlife.info/2013/11/at-the-point-of-no-return/

Wishing you both heartfelt blessings.

I also wanted to share three other comments: the first, posted on my repost of the Julian Rose article “You May Wake Up, … But Will You Get Out of Bed,” the second, my response to her, and the third, sent to me in a private email, minus any identifying details. These additional comments reveal so much of what I’d love to convey to others:

Another great post and so much along the lines of the guidance I’ve been hearing lately.

Just this morning – for myself and others who might still be on the fence, unsure of where you fit in : “Just do *something*, try any activity of service until you find one that clicks. If you want the Universe to respond to your cries of putting you into service, you need to create ripples of the vibration you want more of. Get up, get out and try new things until you find something that fits.”

I’ve been hearing, almost over a loudspeaker, “Now is the Time”, get up, get moving, do something!

Thank you for these posts because they validate in the physical what has been coming through for me.

You’re welcome. It also reminds me of Rob Hopkins (the founder of the Transition Town concept): “The Power of Just Doing Stuff.”

As Transition’s “cheerful disclaimer” states, “we truly don’t know if this will work. Transition is a social experiment on a massive scale. What we are convinced of is this:

if we wait for governments, it’ll be too little, too late
if we act as individuals, it’ll be too little
but if we act as communities, it might just be enough, just in time.”

Sent to me via private email:

You know what i find so interesting is that the finer connections in your writing, which I have not read anywhere before have been acknowledged, the connection between receiving gifts and giving back, cancer, radiation and transmuting, i get the feeling that kind of flew over the heads of many but those that are paying attention, embrace that understanding in their hearts, it will bring about profound shifts for them, quickly, especially those on the west coast, in the Islands, especially if they have kids, of what to do, how to face a very palpable fear as radiation exposure is always viewed as a no win, game over scenario for humans.

This whole understanding of humans being capable of transmuting ‘dense’ energy such as toxic radiation isn’t being discussed, until now. You’re trying to get that door opened. You would think others would be trying to help you instead of offering resistance. They will, other intuitives will be coming forward echoing the same as it’s in the collective now. I find it interesting how you’ve been introduced and getting such benefit from Orgonite at this exact time as its role is transmuting toxic energy into high vibe energy, pure alchemy!

blessings! 🙂

Yes, blessings, indeed! No one said these were easy times, but they are richly layered and deepening times. Healing times. They are times for speaking the Truth in Love and for letting our actions express the true love within our hearts. Again, I encourage people to check out the wonderful sharing in the comments on the original post. Also, if you have not read those two Julian Rose posts linked above, please do click through if you feel so led:

http://www.changingcourseforlife.info/2013/11/at-the-point-of-no-return/

Julian’s on the front lines of rallying the troops of love, freedom and healing, realizing the first two as key requirements for the third to happen — on any level.

Blessed Be!
