40 Days Focusing on the New 5D Earth

Today features another guest blog post, this time from a Facebook friend of mine named Bill Ballard. I friended him last year because he had a Tree of Life behind him in his profile picture, and because I liked his balance between sharing dire information yet keeping a high love vibe. He lives near the BP Oil Spill and was one of the first “personal” contacts I had with someone who had actually experienced the soapy rain/oil on his windshield and felt the burning rain on his skin. Over the past year, I’ve admired the way Bill has managed to stay positive but also very real and supportive of people who may only just now be peeking behind the curtain.

The event he announces below calls for a collective envisioning of 40 Days Focusing on the New 5D Earth. The post is long, but worth a read. Bill offers specific suggestions for collective manifestation, as well as ideas for how to make this New Earth as beautiful and wonder-full as possible. If you’d like to join the event, click here to sign up for the FB community. The Ocean’s 11:11 June 15 Eclipse event happens to fall right in the middle of this longer conscious uplifting of the Earth and humanity.

From Bill Ballard:

A Calling for All Lightworkers & those persons on the Ascension Path,

It is time to manifest the collective vision of “Our New 5D Earth!” This can and will only be achieved by each of us Focusing collectively on our intent. To make our New Earth manifest, we must truly know the ONENESS we share even as individuals, as well as of the Great Spiritual Beings that we truly are. This focus of our collective vision must be integrated …into the planetary grid for our New 5D Earth to manifest. This is like a chicken forming inside an egg. This collective vision for manifesting the New Earth IS the Calling for the 3rd Planetary 40 Days Event, and that for 2011. The Dates of focus for this 40 day event shall be June 21, 2011 through August 1, 2011. There are 3 powerful eclipses in the month of June this year.

Of course, each of us can and should work on focusing our vision and intent now! Manifestation of the New Earth can only be done collectively. As with shifting humanities consciousness, this manifestation requires a minimum number of cooperating individual souls, highly vibrating & joining in cooperation. We will be focusing on that we intend on creating, a beautiful and pristine New Earth! This New Earth is one that we create together, we envision and send our energy to, just as we created our world, and our lives in the 3D realms! We must focus our intent on creating the New Earth, add our Light, or the raw energy we are collecting or channeling in our field as we go through this ascension process. We then add a dash of Magic of your special dreams you wish to see manifest! Make it be So!

This IS how our New Earth shall manifest and take physical shape! Many of us now remember that WE agreed to jointly manifest the 3D and participate in that reality. We remember we are not victims, but rather the creators of our lives and existence in order to experience. We master the realm of creation we brought forth and agreed to live in. When that realm is mastered, we ascend to the next higher level of vibration. Now is that time. So we shall do this again now to manifest the 5D Earth. As with anything else in our lives, creation lies in our own imagination. We send it out from our hearts into the universe where the energy is attracted and formed together manifesting into our reality! You know how this works! This is a calling for all the Earth volunteers, and teachers, as well as anyone choosing to ascend, to now step to the next level of creation. Yes, we still will continue to spread the word of what is going on, continuing the awakening of humanity, and at the same time we collectively focus on creating the New Earth.

Another event is being organized by Liv Jonsson, leading into this 40 Days of New Earth Manifestation. Liv is asking that the month of June to be a month of No Negativity from Wednesday 6/1/2011 to 6/30/2011. This is similar to events held in previous years. This time can be seen as a preparation for this 40 Day focus on New Earth Manifestation. Liv’s event can be viewed on Facebook here. This scheduling of the No Negativity event this year will occur in a month with 3 eclipses and a Summer Solstice… How much more powerful could that be?

There are many of us now who have accepted our rolls as leaders in this time of ascension. We are who have been the changers of the planet, raising the vibrations, awakening humanity, and who watch the world as observers during this time of the shift and ascension. We are already living in a 5th dimensional state of conscious living, while walking in a 3rd dimensional world. We already see what ALL is going on, We see behind the veil, and do so without fear or negativity, as everything on 3D Earth unravels and goes into chaos. WE KNOW everything is in a state of Divine Perfection. On the other hand, there are many other persons they have a need to completely turn away from watching as these events unfold. They may see the 3D world in a complete state of destruction, which it must before a new world can be created. Others of us can watch as observers and handle it without being effected emotionally or energetically. This is a choice each of us must make for ourselves in participating during this 40 Days event, in order to bring the best we can offer to our part of the vision. Participate in this event in as pure of a state of consciousness as you can muster. Liv’s No Negativity for the month of June, helps to prepare those who cannot yet detach from their emotions and connection to the 3D world.

We all know what is going on with the Apocalypse or “Unveiling” of all these events happening globally in the 3D world as it collapses. We see and can identify the various “Wizards” behind the curtain of Oz. We clearly see who is pulling the cords and creating the theatrics of the world we have been living in. Many of the newly awakened persons don’t yet realize that WE ARE LIVING IN THE APOCALYPSE RIGHT NOW… Those newly awakened persons think Apocalypse is the “destruction” of the Earth, but that is so only in one sense of a meaning. The definition of Apocalypse IS “the unveiling”! Many of us have been unveiling what is behind the scenes for some time now.

a·poc·a·lypse:
Origin: 1125–75; Middle English < Late Latin apocalypsis < Greek apokálypsis revelation, equivalent to apokalýp ( tein ) to uncover, reveal ( apo- apo- + kalýptein to cover, conceal) + -sis -sis

There are so very many of us telling the story of the Apocalypse for the world to see what is REALLY happening. We have been Unveiling of the truth of the government, the secret government behind it, the global Rothchild banking system, the British Monarchy, the various aspects of HAARP, the tectonic warfare and earthquakes, electronic warfare, weather warfare, cyber warfare, the true story of the radiation from Fukushima, the poisoning of our seas and of our food supplies, 9/11 & the fake war on terrorism, the war on drugs and that both took away the rights and liberty of the population, the Court rulings on all those issues, the enslavement of the people through taxation by the IRS, which is funding the Rothchilds and Queen of England who own half the planet, and who fund both sides of all wars, the FDA drugs and vaccines, and GMO foods that keep the population of the planet mentally and spiritually dulled down and sickened, the manipulation of all the worlds religions by the Vatican and British Monarchy, Monsanto and its GMO patents and their connection to the Rothchild empire, The Illuminati, Chemtrails, the Police State recently manifesting around the globe, and the killing of untold millions by these same rulers of the world, Rothchilds, Queen of England, NATO United Nations…. and much much more…. The Unveiling of All this for humanity to see IS the Apocalypse!

This apocalypse has been necessary for all persons to see what actually is going on behind the scenes of the 3D world so many think of as their reality. That world of their reality is collapsing as the spiritual awakening grows. As the light increases on Earth, because of the polarity of a 3D world of Earth School now finishing up, the dark makes an equal balance to the light on the planet. Every action in this plane of existence of polarity, has an equal and opposite reaction, at least until we collectively agree on a New 5D or higher Paradigm. That IS what 40 Days focus on a New Earth Manifestation will be about.

2011 is the final chapter in Awakening of Humanity on the old 3D Earth. As 2011 will complete the 25 year process of the Awakening of Humanity and of planetary frequency increases that began with the Harmonic Convergence of 1987 and then raising the planetary frequencies with the Opening of the 11:11 Doorway in 1992. The process of the ascension began with those persons joining together for unified focused thought, which created the ascension in the first place. That does not mean that these frequency increase ends there at the end of 2011, but rather the old 3D Earth will have been completed. What is happening on Earth currently may not pretty from one standpoint, but has always been in a state of Divine Perfection from another perspective. It is time we really begin to shift our focus from the Apocalyptic nature and waking the remaining persons and begin focusing on the New 5D and higher Earth. As we do this many changes will automatically occur.

Another part of this Apocalypse, and what is being unveiled now, is knowing about WHO YOU TRULY ARE! I don't mean the little ego self you have been these years since you were born, and being that who your momma named you. We are all truly Great Spirits of Light, even far greater in our true size, than this our Mother Earth. You MUST remember! Each of us have only a small fragment of who we truly are, sparking the life within your physical being, or your body. Embodying as much of that great spirit of light that we truly are, and into this small physical being IS what we are to do as these End Times complete. It is time to wake up to the complete picture of why we are here.

As we awaken and raise our physical frequencies, We create and activate a light body over the our physical 3D body. We begin activating the torrid of our heart chakra, which is also known as our Merkaba. We learn the technique of filling our light body and Merkaba up with as much light as we can hold. This becomes our energy field we have to work with, to manifest with or to heal, and will indeed manifest our New Earth with. It is time for all of humanity to awaken and remember these truths of who we truly are.

It is time also to comprehend that we as a collective create the reality we choose to live in. That was what we did in 3D Earth which is now passing away, in the way we have known it to be. The old 3D Earth is now poisoned, irradiated, fracted, warred upon and killed by what was termed as progress and civilization, and the modern unspiritual and material 3D life. WE became as separate from God as a spirit can be. That was what we were to experience. But that old 3D Earth is dying now, especially after Fukushima which continues to emit the radiation of millions of nuclear bombs, and with no end in site, poisoning the world we knew. For that reason more than any other, we cannot continue living 3D.

We are now put into a position and forced, or have forced our collective selves make a choice to ascend or die. Remember on a higher level, we chose this experience. Everyone on Earth now has a choice to ascend to a higher level of 5th dimensional consciousness or to physically die, and find someplace else to incarnate in order to continue experiencing the lessons and lower density of 3D. That will have to be in a different universe, literally. In reality, our whole universe is ascending at this time… Signs are everywhere to see for anyone who looks. For those who have chosen ascension, and who are consciously raising our vibrations into the higher 5th dimensional realms of Christ Consciousness, we are collectively creating our new reality of how to live in Love and peace. Now it is time that WE MUST CREATE 5D Earth!

The month of June 2011, it is being called for us to begin the shift from our focus on Apocalypse and of the negative actions of the Dark Factions of Earth. As we waken others, this process of unveiling indeed exposes them, but also gives them power, as that is where our focus is. Yes, there are many persons still not yet awake. Yes, this process must continue. For those persons who have been awake for a long period of time, and who have raised their personal frequencies into the higher realms, from June 1 to August 1, PASS THE TORCH TO OTHERS! It is time for them to step up. It is time for us to Take a Step UP! Yes, things will continue happening, and many of us can actually work in both worlds, multi~dimensionally. We have already become multi~dimensional beings.

The Dark Side on Earth in reality is Our Brothers Who have Anchored The Opposite Polarity for the now collapsing 3D Experience. We could not have had the 3D Experience without someone anchoring the two opposite polarities. That is the truth of the story of Lucifer vs Archangel Michael. What our brothers on the Dark Side have been doing feeds some deep fears in those persons who are newly awakening to the apocalypse and what all is actually going on behind the curtains. They did not realize the intent by the dark brothers has been to depopulate Mother Earth… that could be scary… If you think about it, that is quite fitting for the end of the story… Die or Ascend! ha ha. To ascend, we need to collectively focus on 5D Earth manifestation.

As we focus on our New 5D Earth Manifestation, be unlimited! This New Earth DOES NOT have to be limited to a 5th dimensional perspective either! Do NOT limit yourself with what you have known and have experienced as your past 3D Reality. WE have already been there and done that one! Focus on the deep dreams you have in your heart, that which you would think of presently as unreal! BE UNLIMITED in your vision! Make this New Earth vision as beautiful, as pristine, and Divinely Inspired! See it as Mountains, and Oceans, as exotic and dreamlike, and as full of life and all kinds of plants and creatures. Make it as beautiful as you possibly can imagine in your higher visions. Allow for higher life forms to be able to visit this New Earth. See this new earth as the Heaven you have always envisioned in the highest possible way. Think of this like designing your new home and decorating it… but on a planetary scale.

Then, think of it as it has already happened. Many of us felt the shift, or rather the separation of the old 3D and energies of the New 5D Earth on January 11, 2011. So many of us consciously felt that and openly discussed it. So then, we can speak of the New Earth to others as it has already happened! Know in your heart, you have already manifested it as that has occurred. Now, we are just adding details. See this New Earth as YOUR HEAVEN to be lived in and enjoyed with all that you love. The more you spend time focusing on this, the more you will be adding your vibrations to manifesting that form into existence… The more we collectively focus on this, the faster it manifests. This is just like anything else we learned about manifesting on the 3D and now 4D worlds of polarity, except it will manifest far easier and quicker in these new higher vibrations. It all depends on how many persons participate, as the greater the number, the more energy is put into the manifestation process. Remember, 5th Dimensional Earth is one of the Heart and of ONENESS, and will not have the polarity experienced in the lower dimensions.

Envisioning this manifestation and sending it to the universe from your heart, IS indeed praying. Spending 40 Days doing this, is spending 40 Days in prayer! You ARE creating from your vision into form. Send your personal visions out from the love and the power of ONENESS in your heart. During the coming dimensional shift, this New Earth WILL manifest as our New Collective Reality, or rather we will shift to that world we collectively created!

As you envision, allow your unlimited vision to also include all the magic you can even believe is possible. Telepathy, levitation, de-material and materialization, teleportation, instantaneous creation, and all those avatar powers you dream of should be included. Everything you would think could be done in Heaven, include it all! Feel and see yourself as you can already experience this. Feel the LOVE, the PEACE, the Fulfillment and Joy. See everyone and everything having complete abundance, health, prosperity, and wants for nothing. See yourself as living in a youthful you being ageless and timeless, creating your physical being anyway you so desire. Paint or draw the New Earth as you envision it, if this helps you. Know the higher truth as you do this, which IS that you in fact already live forever! Realize your spirit has always been here and will always be here, until we are all called back to the Creator. That trumpet call has now been sounded! Remember and Know who you truly ARE…

If you so desire, se yourself as a Galactic Traveller with a Home Base on New Earth. Be an explorer of other worlds and the universe. You may see yourself as one who is in service to others. In reality of the higher truths, that service to others is our true path, when we finally wake up and leave this lower world of ego and separation. Create this vision with the highest of vibration you can spiritually focus upon it. NO LIMITATIONS! ALL those who step into this new reality should have no needs. Everyone should have all needs fulfilled, leaving them time to love, to experience in whatever way they so choose.

Until ET Disclosure happens, and those of the Light in high places of Government can make their moves, there is little we individually can do to change the current 3D Earth situation. An intense Focusing on manifesting the New 5D Earth IS one of the most powerful things we can do now. Yes, there will be many events occur this summer, as this 40 Day event unfolds… Yes, we must still walk with our feet on both 3D and 5D Earth. That is par for the course, as we transmute negativity of Mother Earth and prepare her for the Ascension, or the New 5D Earth she is too become. Our collective vision of New Earth is a powerful way to focus our intent during this time of waiting. Many persons are beginning to call for this focus on the vision of 5D Earth.

A few others speak about fixing the Old 3D Earth. With Fukushima and all the radiation that is contaminating the globe, as well as all the destruction that has and is being done to Earth as civilization progressed, humanity would have a difficult time on Earth remaining in this current dimension. Many persons choosing not to awaken and who remain 3D will soon be sickened from the radiations that are perpetually emitting from Fukushima and collecting in humanities foods. This radiation coming from Fukushima is accumulative in foods and persons bodies. Much of this radiation will remain for BILLIONS of years, as it was MOX Fuel with plutonium. 3D Earth is now poisoned pretty good.

Actually, remaining on 3D Earth has never has been what we are to do, although we got used to it. We were always supposed to learn our Earth School lessons and then ascend. We were not supposed to remain in the dense vibrations and separation from God and our true selves as we experience 3D Earth. That time was always supposed to be limited, and we volunteered for our soul growth, as well as to Feed The Mind Of God via our experiences there. Many persons don't yet comprehend that. It can be difficult to imagine a New Earth for many. That is why those of us who can, must accept this challenge for the collective! We ALL came from the higher dimensions. Originally we came from Source, from the highest of all dimensions. We dropped and lowered ourselves to experience the lowest of the low. That is what has been known as "The Fall" We volunteered and chose to be separated from Source and who we really are for that experience. Now it is time to remember and to return. As we remember and release the old, it is time to envision and manifest our new collective reality. It is time to ascend and begin our journey back to source!

I challenge each one of you to spend the 40 Days between June 21, 2011 and August 1, 2011 to completely detach from as much of the 3D events currently going on as you can, and use that time to focus on manifesting the New Earth.

For those who want to participate, but have not "activated their heart chakras" Please spend the Month of June focusing your consciousness centering it into your heart. This can be done by intent, and can only be done by LOVE, the highest of all vibrations. Your heart chakra when activated truly activates all your other spiritual powers and begins returning you to that which you truly are, and from where you originally came. Chakra activation begins the process of Ascension for all humans.

I also ask that each of you share this 40 Day 5D New Earth Manifestation Event with as many persons as possible. The more persons joining in, the quicker the manifestation occurs. You may copy this writing, or rewrite your own. You may add to this, or take away whatever you desire. That does NOT matter to me. What matters is that we come together collectively to get the job done. Remember too, that the more persons who join together to focus their intent on this particular New Earth Manifestation, the more readily it manifests… The square root of 1% of the current population of Earth is what is needed to make this shift… Roughly 8000 persons joining in can do this. If we have tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands or even millions, the more readily this manifestation will occur.

With Unconditional Love For ALL THAT IS

[From Laura again: To join in this event officially, click here. As with Ocean’s 11:11, if you’re not on Facebook, or you’re not a “group” person, no matter. You can still participate on your own. We change the world one inside and one thought at a time. As within, so without; as above, so below. Much love to all of you! ]

The 12 Laws of the Universe

Good reminders of the 12 Universal Laws (including the Law of Attraction) and how we can use these to create the world we wish to participate in and enjoy:

David Icke on the Law of Attraction

Great, simple explanation about how intention and the Law of Attraction affect our personal reality. As I mentioned in this post, I am most interested in how this affects our consensus reality. I do love how David Icke explains some of the complexities not addressed in The Secret. He also talks about how during his “angry phase” in the early 90’s he kept attracting angrier and angrier reactions to his work. I’ve never resonated with that period of David Icke — not that I always disagreed with his information, but it always seemed so aggressive, defensive and warlike. I much prefer this later direction and iteration of his path. Enjoy!

“Door” Number 14: Temperance

The fourteenth door in my Divine Doorways Series is actually a “porta-portal.” Someone commissioned me to paint a canvas board in the same style and with the same Runic coding as the larger doors. I wasn’t sure what would manifest, but in the end we both loved the way it turned out. The board allowed me to paint and code both sides, just like an actual door, and I designed the front to look like an archway, so the image maintains an “entrance” or “gateway” feeling.

Temperance by Laura Bruno

The fourteenth card in the Tarot, the Temperance Card, presented itself as the one for this project. This motif usually depicts a woman or angel with one foot in a pond and one foot on land, symbolizing both the subconsious and conscious realities, joined and working together. The woman commissioning this painting really loves Door Number 11, though, so she requested more of a faery feel to Temperance. She looks kind of like a psychedelic rock and roll flower child faery, with orange and black, Celtic butterfly monarch wings (edged in silver) and a yellow heart halo.

Water features heavily in this card, not just in the pond, but also because the woman/angel/faery traditionally pours water from one vessel into another. Ideas of balance, flow, harmony and fulfillment come to mind. The water is all coded with Runes for Flow. and the mountain has an extra UR Rune on it, suggesting the moving of mountains. To the upper right there is a downward pointing triangle and then a Rune, which is associated with Zion. That one just insisted on being there, so I put it in. It’s called Anis and also symbolizes: “Stand Still and Movement, Still Point in Heart, Zen, Zion, Pulsar Star, Falcon, Hummingbird, Parting the Waters, Walking on Water, Pulse, Transistor.”

In addition, I added quotes evoking overflowing cups, and an excerpt from Psalm 23 on the back amplifies this effect:

I got rid of any negative references to enemies or struggles and wrote out this:

“The Lord is my shepherd,
I have everything I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows;
he leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths…

You prepare a feast for me…
You welcome me as a guest,
anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love
will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
Forever.”

(I also turned the 3 in 23 into an Om.)

Temperance by Laura Bruno

The coding down the sides of the “threshold” says in Runes: “Have you beauty that leads the heart [down the left side, and heart is an actual heart-shape] to the Holy Mountain” [down the right side] … This is extracted from a Kahlil Gibran question, but I’ve written it as a command, and ended it with a Wunjo Rune (which looks like a P), thus anchoring it as a spell. Wunjo is sort of like saying, “So be it.” So the threshold is “commanding” the subconscious to have beauty that leads the heart to the Holy Mountain. Wunjo also stands for fulfillment and joy. I was happy to hear back from the patron that the “door” is already having that effect in her life:

“I wanted to mention that I also have some great, unplanned, spur of the moment pics of the kids admiring your painting. It was so sweet; I was in the kitchen doing dishes and hear them chatting away and I come to peak into my office to see their two cute bottoms facing the picture and touching it gently and discussing what is happening with the woman, etc… SO ADORABLE! I just took some pics of them. Some got posed when they learned I was there but it was so beautiful with them checking it out and the fall leaves and fall scenery in the background. A vision I will always remember…so special!”

I coded the Sun in the card with Runes for passion, spark and heat. The grass has flowers that are Runes for “create a new universe” and “power to move forward.” The grass itself is textured with Runes for “prosperity” and “movable wealth.” I put in stars, which are a repeat of the “create a new universe” Rune, as well as a Cho Ku Rei symbol in the sky and a giant Rainbow. I clothed the faery angel because the patron has young children, and her dress is covered in Runes and hearts. You can’t really see the Runes in the dress, but the subconscious registers and responds to them.

The bottom quote is also by Kahlil Gibran: “And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.” Both quotes are from The Prophet.

Temperance Quote by Kahlil Gibran

I thoroughly enjoyed painting my first porta-portal and recognize this as a way of opening up more opportunities for people to receive customized “doors,” whether I come in person or just customize from afar. In either case, I love using my intuition to find just the right images, Runes, quotes, intentions and symbols to bring forth what the patron most wants and needs and also to offer these gifts as larger intentions for the world. Many thanks to this family for requesting such an unusual project. And Happy Birthday! 11/11 marks a very special birthday for the patron, so this portal arrived just in time for that portal birthday. Namaste!

Temperance by Laura Bruno: Rock On!

Whacking the Piñata

Yesterday I posted this on Facebook: Laura Bruno has been whacking a cosmic piñata for quite some time now and can feel it about to burst. 🙂

Some people got a real kick out of it, but I wasn’t kidding. I really have intended into being this giant piñata of blessings, and I really do spend a huge amount of time and energy whacking away at it. It’s a pretty pinata, swings all over the place when I hit it, and I like to imagine what’s inside. This analogy led to a discussion with a good friend of mine, who likened my determination to their own sense of beating their head against a wall in several areas of life. I decided to share my emailed response because so many people seem to feel the same way. This was a personal correspondence so it’s a little “earthier” than some of my typical posts, but cleaning it up would have sterilized the message:

Given my medical history, I’m sure you understand why I no longer make it a practice to beat my head against a wall. 🙂 Nor do I recommend it to anyone else. A brain injury will give you change, but it also might kill you, it’s completely unpredictable, and even if it does work, there are SO many easier, faster, and less painful ways!

As I see it, the difference between me whacking my cosmic piñata of blessings all day and night long and you beating your head against the wall is this:

Beating your head against a wall will very quickly make you unconscious and it stems from frustration and not looking around you. Why are you banging your head against the wall when there’s a whole room behind you? Why don’t you look for the door? And if you can’t find a door, just ask me; I paint them!! I will make you a door … and I’m really not kidding. I make doors for myself all the time, physical, mental, emotional, spiritual … I am always painting and walking through portals. Walls are boring, especially the same wall over and over again. But portals … now those actually lead somewhere. … and you don’t even need ME to paint you one. You can find your own; they pop up in the most surprising places if you’re open to finding them.

Whacking my cosmic piñata, even if I whack it just as many times as you beat your head against the wall, is VERY different. First of all, I’m using an energetic “stick,” which is very large and gives me a lot of leverage. I can hit it much harder than I could w/ my head. Second, I am not damaging myself or anyone else with these hits, so I can continue to whack that thing with massive determination until it explodes all over me. I won’t be in a stupor when it happens, and that’s important, b/c there are good things in that piñata and I don’t want to miss any of them. I put them in there and I intend to savor each one of them with every ounce of consciousness I have on any and all levels. They are REALLY good things. 🙂

But most importantly, the energy of the piñata is completely different. Banging your head against the wall says, “I can’t, Ow, it hurts, I can’t, Ow, it hurts, I can’t, Ow, it hurts,” whereas whacking my pinata yells into the universe: “I want it and I want it bad. Give it to me.” It’s a joyful command with an expectation of fulfillment.

I ALWAYS get what I want. I know this. Even the things in life like my head injury got me what I wanted. I had 4 years off work for spiritual growth. I’ve written 3 books, including a novel. I traveled to all these cool places and lived like a bohemian for 8 years. That’s all I ever wanted from graduate school and I got it w/o having to sit through all those dreadful classes and listen to all those academics over sherry hour.

Granted, the migraines, disability, private detectives, court, etc. really sucked, so now I just paint portals and whack piñatas instead of beating my head against a wall. No more brain injuries. I still WANT. I still intend to get, and I know that I will. But having gone “down the road” a few times, I now only take interesting routes. Walls bore me, but doors and piñatas I like.

There Is a Way

The intellect says: “The six directions are limits: there is no way out.”
Love says: “There is a way. I have traveled it thousands of times.”
The intellect saw a market and started to haggle;
Love saw thousands of markets beyond that market.

–Rumi

🙂 Have a good one … I’m off my soapbox before all the “good” folks track me down and try to make me wash my mouth out w/ it. Time to whack the piñata. OMG, that sounds obscene! I like it. 🙂 And I will like it even more when it spews those blessings all over me. I’m telling you, they’re coming.

Door Number 4: Four of Wands, aka “Karuna”

Happy Easter! I haven’t actually finished Door Number 4, but the front is done, so I thought I’d post before the holiday. This one features a version of the Rider-Waite Tarot card for the Four of Wands.

Four of Wands, aka “Karuna” door front by Laura Bruno

The Sanskrit spells out “Karuna,” which means “compassion” or “the end of all suffering.” My inspiration to include Karuna with this door was two-fold:

I went to a Good Friday service at the University of Chicago’s Rockefeller Chapel and felt drawn to go to the left side of the lying down Christ figurine. I’d been thinking of the Holy Grail all week, while wearing a moldavite pendant and saw at the service that the Christ was holding a chalice, which I had already planned for the lower panel. The word “Karuna” just popped into my head as a Sanskrit visual for the center of the door. On a personal note, my sister’s family recently got a puppy that they named Karuna. They call her “Rune” for short, though! This door is in part a welcome door for little Rune. 🙂

My Sister’s Dog, Karuna, aka “Rune”

The bottom quote is by Kahlil Gibran: “Trust in dreams for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.” I kept dreaming of “the 30th card in the Tarot” until I finally remembered from Tom’s reading in Schizandra and the Gates of Mu that the 30th card is the Four of Wands. The image worked for me with a few tweaks, as I had also been dreaming of some specific combinations of Runes that came together in the shape of the couple with their arms at those angles. LOL, very active dream life lately!

A note on colors: the Sanskrit and 9999 on top are written in gold. The fish (walleye) eyes are silver, as are the orbs on top of the wands, and the area surrounding the chalice. The flash makes the silver look white. Again, I must apologize for the BlackBerry photo quality. If you have a professional camera setup and live in Chicago, please contact me! 😉

And … as a special treat … I have a before picture! This is what I started with. Well, it’s actually a heavily cleaned version of what I started with. Below is the back before priming it, and believe it or not, the front actually looked worse!

Perhaps you can see why I consider painting these doors, or portals, as part of an alchemy process. I might not be turning baser metals into gold, but some of these doors arrive in pretty grim shape! I like to think we can transmute ourselves and our reality into whatever beautiful things we can imagine.

Blessed Be.

The Liberation Fund

Living in the Land of Synchronicity, as I so often do, I’ve decided to listen to my daily horoscope from Astrocenter.com, which reads:

Your horoscope for March 5, 2010 If you’re drawn to group activities connected to your spirituality, Laura, this is the day to explore them, as spiritual insights related to group meditations or workshops could well come your way today. Some of them may be a bit nebulous, and others could be totally strange and unexpected, but nonetheless you should write your ideas down or otherwise memorialize them. They could shed light on new revelations that could come later.

For several months now I have been working on a quiet but massive manifestation project, which I have affectionately named, “The Liberation Fund.” It began as a lark. LOL, as a Gemini, most of my big ideas do tend to begin that way! I was talking with a client who decided she needed a certain amount of cash in order to feel comfortable taking a leap of faith. In the session, I asked her to imagine what would happen if she already HAD the money.

She couldn’t imagine where it could possibly come from, so for the sake of imagination, I said, “Well, let’s just say it came from me. Let’s just say that somehow, someway I managed to manifest it for you.” She laughed, but because she’s seen me manifest some pretty big things, she could imagine this scenario much more easily than manifesting the money in any other way. We went on with the exercise and she found that she has quite the exciting life intended for herself and others — as she really only needs the cash flow to leverage her into a position of serving others.

After I got off the phone with her, I started daydreaming about how much fun it would be to gift her that windfall of money. Then I started pondering ALL the people I know and love, some clients, some friends, some family members, others just people I admire from afar. As a life coach and intuitive, I have the advantage of receiving people’s expressed wishes as well as the unexpressed “hits” about what resources it would take to manifest their dreams. A surprisingly large number of people I know have worked through nearly all remaining resistance to service and full life path expression, except for having cash on hand to activate those dreams and responsibilities. Loving everyone and wanting to see them succeed, expand and bliss out, my daydream grew from one client to a list of about forty-five charismatic people for whom opening the door would change not only their world, but our entire world.

Big dreams with huge, inconceivably big ripple effects.

And so … I started asking. Or, as Shawn Blackwolf likes to say, “assking” … with fluidic pressure and release. Intensifying those requests, adding pressure, allowing the steam to build, and then releasing it. I really did not intend to announce this little project to the world. Until now, only a handful of people have known of my “crazy” little daydream, but I’m quite serious about it. If I’ve told you I’ve been praying for you, I’m not talking idle prayer. I have been working hard!

Part of the reason I felt led to Hyde Park was because my energy feels much stronger there. Something amplifies it in that particular part of Chicago, and I have spent much time meditating, praying, wandering and wondering by the Lake, in my apartment with my portal doors, and around the community. I’ve also gone to two John of God healing events with his assistant Caterina, as well as a Full Moon sweat lodge last weekend. Some of this has been for my own healing, but I’ve been directing MOST of my energy to the healing of others as well as planetary and cosmic healing. I figure if I’m praying anyway, I might as well pray big.

I’ve also been playing the lottery. I know this sounds strange, but hey, it’s me. I’ve come to accept the fact that I’m (a little) strange. 😉 I had a series of numbers I was playing and I’d come close, except rarely on the date or game I actually played. Still, there’d be enough overlap that I’d keep playing if I felt nudged. And I often did. Little winks from the universe saying, “You’re onto something, Laura. Keep it up.” The other day, though, I said to myself, God and my guides, “You know? I’m getting tired of playing the lottery. This is almost embarrassing. I need some kind of sign if you want me to buy another ticket because really, I’m starting to feel too silly about all of this.”

I did my day of Wandering and Wondering and had a really odd day, synchronicity upon crazy synchronicity. While walking, I saw two lottery tickets lying on the ground, right after seeing all these abundance signs (angel numbers, intuitions, synchronicities about winning unexpectedly, other very personal signs of certain wishes coming true — wishes currently held up only by a lack of funds). I walked by the discarded tickets and got a hit to turn around and pick them up, so I did. All were random quickpicks from March 1. I checked at the store to see if they were winners: no, but having been led to the lottery counter, I bought a Powerball ticket.

Here’s the weird thing: I checked the winning number the following day, and one of those old tickets I found had 3 of the 5 winning numbers from March 3 (3/3/2001, which is a 333 date, a sign of the Ascended Masters). The same ticket was off by only one digit on another number. I checked the other discarded ticket and it listed two quickpicks, random spreads of numbers, but they were almost identical. I combined the repeated numbers of those four random spreads, and three of the numbers overlapped three times and two overlapped twice. Pretty strange, right?

So … I changed my numbers and bought a ticket for tonight. I had contemplated sharing this crazy little Liberation Fund idea in a newsletter and then thought better of it. Why make an announcement about such an odd and private project? If it came to fruition, I would share the story, but why expose myself ahead of time? It is, after all, a bit embarrassing to admit publicly a belief that one may very well win the lottery. Almost as embarrassing as my admission in my interview in Passion Magazine that I believed in Santa Claus until I was fourteen years old! (My younger brother tried to burst my bubble. I say tried because part of me still believes in Good Saint Nicholas. When you hop dimensions as often as I do, hey, some beliefs come along for the ride.) Anyway, I wasn’t going to say anything, but the question was on my mind this morning whether to share the Liberation Fund intention with others. Then my horoscope came through:

March 5, 2010: If you’re drawn to group activities connected to your spirituality, Laura, this is the day to explore them, as spiritual insights related to group meditations or workshops could well come your way today. Some of them may be a bit nebulous, and others could be totally strange and unexpected, but nonetheless you should write your ideas down or otherwise memorialize them. They could shed light on new revelations that could come later.

So there you have it. I’ve written them down and memorialized them. I heard from Ray of Sedona that this is a wonderful weekend for making a wish come true because Jupiter and Mercury align, creating a cosmic union perfect for taking unmanifest wishes and giving them form in the material world. In mythology, Mercury does Jupiter’s dirty work, taking care of all the tiresome, tedious or unpleasant details required to create and maintain order in the universe. Though a trickster, Mercury also rules communication and has a free pass into and out of the underworld. Jupiter marks expansion, and Jupiter also just aligned last weekend with the Sun. Mercury can take Jupiter’s ideas and complete all required details to make it so.

What does all of this mean in laymen’s terms? Dream big. Make your wishes heard. Knock and it shall be opened. That’s always true, but the current alignment acts like WD40 on a squeaky hinge. Instead of creaking open, that door you’ve been knocking on may very well fly open. Prepare yourself to walk on through.

And wish me luck, please. Somehow, someway, I really would love to see that Liberation Fund start flowing. Cuz some of you have got some really, really amazing projects and intentions in the works! Many, many blessings. 🙂
