August 2018 Specials

Happy Lammas and Lughnasadh! August 1st marks the traditional date for the first harvest festival of the year, although the actual cross quarter day where the Sun reaches 15 degrees Leo falls on August 7, 2018. Any way you look at it, in the Northern Hemisphere, August marks a time of increased harvests and shortening days. This month’s specials embrace that paradox by calling attention to the body with a Medical Intuitive Special, as well as supporting creativity and Lightworkers with the “Lugh’s Clues Package.”(Lugh is often associated with the Sun.)

AUGUST 2018 SPECIALS

40-Minute Medical Intuitive Special

Save 25% ($44) off the usual rate for a 40-Minute Medical Intuitive Reading.

Medical Intuition is the ability to access information about physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health through “reading” the energy field around the body. A Medical Intuitive session decodes the message(s) from soul to body into language your conscious mind can understand and begin to address. It is not meant to replace traditional medical or psychological treatment, and it is not any form of medical or psychological treatment.

Instead, Medical Intuitive readings look for the root cause of continuing symptoms or conditions. Without addressing the root cause, even the “right” treatments or treatment providers fail to find a cure … or … a person continues to experience one new issue after another. By locating the root cause, a Medical Intuitive reading allows the individual to understand what the soul wants, so that healing can move through all the levels, including physical.

$133 (instead of the usual $177) for 40 minutes, if purchased on or before 8/31/18. Please contact me to sign up.

Lugh’s Clues Package

In Celtic mythology, the Sun god Lugh represents skill, quick thinking and the combination of diverse expertise that makes him unique and valuable. As the story goes, Lugh tries to gain entrance to the king’s fort, but the doorkeeper tells him that no one can join without a special skill.

Lugh says he’s a builder, but the doorkeeper says, “We already have a builder.” Then Lugh describes his skills as a smith. “We already have a smith.” Lugh continues to run through a long list of other skills — champion, harper, warrior, poet, magician, physician, cup-bearer, brazier — always with the same response: “We already have one of those.” Lugh finally gains entrance by asking, “But do you have someone who can be and do all these things at once?”

Create a New Universe

In the past 17 years, I’ve mentored life coaches, Reiki practitioners, Reiki Master Teachers, intuitives, yoga teachers, and energy healers. Common questions arise about how to set themselves apart in a world with so many others offering the same services, and how to help others recognize their value. How can they earn a living by following their sense of calling? This 3-pack of 30 minute sessions explores your unique combination of gifts and how to use them to open doors. This is NOT your typical marketing strategy! It’s not about Facebook, branding, or head shots. Rather, it’s about recognizing what makes you you — and using your unique energy signature and skills to provide value to others.

We’ll explore your gifts, lifestyle and soul goals, skills and what combo of these will open metaphorical and literal doors for you. $333 if prepaid on or before 8/31/18. The Lugh’s Clues Package offers 3 half-hour sessions done in a relatively short time period — maximum 3 months — plus a Reiki Healing Attunement to activate and help you embrace what you discover. This is a first for this type of package, which represents a savings of $111+ of separate services, plus the energetic support and intense focus on personal mentoring. Please contact me to sign up.

 

July 2017 Special and Availability

I’m posting the July Special early, because things are about to get even busier, with less predictable internet and phone access. Due to its popularity and my own scheduling with the relocation, I’ve decided to run the $77 email special for one more month. August will feature new specials.

Please note that I will not return any email session answers the last week of June through July 4th. I will still be able to quickly schedule appointments and create invoices via my phone, but we will not have wifi at our new place until June 27th. We have plaster walls, which means phone emails need to remain short to get through. We’ll be back and forth between locations multiple times this coming week, and our schedules will unfold day by day.

Phone and email sessions will resume after the 4th of July. If you have pressing questions, I would suggest getting in the queue soon.

All that said, here’s the monthly special, along with an add-on option:

July 2017 Special

This special remains an experiment since so many people request email support. It can be used for medical intuition, past life work, quick check-in’s, follow-up between sessions, or as a way of addressing your needs sooner than my phone availability would allow. (Do note that I will not be available for phone or email sessions between June 23rd-July 4th. You can schedule and pay for this special during that date range; I just won’t be able to return answers until after July 4th.)

Also, please see below an option invented by one of my clients and now a popular variation, spanning many properties in May and June – a very cool combo, indeed!

20-Minute Email Check-In for $77

Twenty minutes usually covers one or two questions or issues, and it includes my time reading and replying to your email, plus the time spent tuning in and interpreting any intuitive messages I receive, along with providing links (if applicable) for further details and information. If you have more complex questions, you can add time. Available if prepaid on or before July 31, 2017. Depending on how this goes, this special might become a regular offering, but we’ll see, as I prefer life away from the computer.

Please contact me to sign up.

Some clients in May and June opted to combine this email special with the land clearing services I recently announced, and that worked so well that I’m listing this as an option here, too. Essentially, people sent me an address to request a 20-minute email reading about a property they own or considered purchasing, in which I shared my findings and suggestions, and then they requested a property clearing ($77) based on those results. In other words, this worked as an unofficial package for $154. Also available for houses or apartments.

PROPERTY CLEARINGS AND RELOCATION BOOSTERS

This is a previously unadvertised service, which so many people have found so beneficial that I’ve decided to make it public. This service can be used for:

  • Clearing properties or spaces of negative energies and hostile influences
  • Preparing homes for sale and removing unwanted attachments to old properties
  • Blessing new homes, properties or work spaces
  • Smoothing details of relocation and supporting synchronicity in the search for a new home or office
  • Raising the vibration and increasing the positive influence radius of your home or work space
  • Blessing gardens or public spaces
  • Creating spheres of protection around your environment
  • Dedicating spaces to support certain goals or intentions
  • Creating a healing sanctuary or supporting sacred space

(If it’s not listed but seems related, please contact me for options. This process involves a combination of a Reiki Healing Attunement, Runes, specially determined timing, and any supportive symbols, crystals, etc. depending on the individual situation. It’s more complex and specific than a Reiki Healing Attunement, but that technique forms the foundation of this process.)

Rates:

$77 per location or specific intention

$200 for 3 locations or intentions (i.e. if you need to sell one property in order to purchase another and also want help finding a new office; if there are multiple properties involved; or if you anticipate needing this service again sometime)

 

FAQ: What Kind of Coaching Do You Provide?

I don’t know if it’s that fresh 2017 energy or the January Special, but lately I’ve received multiple requests to clarify what I offer in terms of Life Coaching. After answering so many people at the end of intuitive sessions, I decided to expand and clarify the coaching description on my site. For anyone else wondering, here’s more information:

Life Coaching can closely focus on one particular issue or life transition, or it can morph into more of a mentorship on personal energy management, living a more magical and inspired life, building or increasing your own business, improving people skills, finding and living a compatible lifestyle for you, managing and moving beyond Lyme disease, discovering and developing your soul’s gifts, and/or enhancing creativity and intuition. I also provide coaching for other life coaches, intuitives and energy healers looking to improve skills and tailor their own offerings for their own clients and students. Oftentimes a round of coaching will follow an Intuitive Session that has highlighted specific areas of focus for catalyzing a quantum leap.

Life Coaching with me means many things to many people, including dream interpretation; however, it is NOT counseling or therapy. Just to be clear: I am not a licensed counselor or therapist, and my sessions are “preferred” present and future oriented in terms of improving situations rather than delving too deeply into “what is” or “what’s wrong.” Counseling and therapy provide many benefits, and for some people these are definitely the right route. Others opt for therapy with someone else and coaching with me, since addressing both areas sometimes creates a synergistic positive effect. I have offered Life Coaching since 2005, and I work best with people interested in personal empowerment, joy and authenticity.

Please contact me if you feel you’re a good fit for this type of service. $175/hour; discounted bulk packages available, including this January 2017 Special.

Last Week for August Specials

AUGUST 2014 SPECIALS:

Return of the $77 Past Life Quickie

With the veils thinning, so many more people have begun to experience what I call “past life bleed-through.” Dreams, hunches, visions, flashes … however the suspected past life awareness arrives, it can feel unsettling, exciting and/or cause obsessive questions. This half-hour reading allows people to ask persistent questions, or to have a check-in regarding the most pressing karmic issues presenting themselves right now. Yes, this can include past life relationships with animal friends. I don’t normally offer Past Life Readings in a half-hour format, but I wanted to make this available to the larger numbers of people wondering about previous lifetimes and relationships. If you’d like to double this special for the full hour, just let me know in your scheduling request. Offer valid if prepaid on or before August 31, 2014.

$444 Intuitive Coaching Four-Pack

With regular intuitive or life coaching sessions running $175/hour, this special offers major savings at $444/four hours. I’ve found that even people who normally process things on their own feel challenged by the increased intensity and “sorting” of the Universe these days. As we continue with Earth changes, internal and galactic shifts, I feel called to offer a short burst of support to those in need. These sessions can be used close together or saved for a future need. The entire package can be gifted to someone else, but (for simplicity of paperwork) these three-packs cannot be divided and shared among multiple individuals. Offer valid if prepaid on or before August 31, 2014. To schedule your first session or purchase the package, please contact me here.

Timeline Tune-In and Tune-Up

This hour session helps you to recognize your likely trajectory based on current energy patterns, intentions, and habits … and then, I search for the closest parallel reality versions of “you” with very slight differences that lead to more preferred (and more varied/greater opportunities for) positive outcomes. The scan and download are actually easier for me to do than to explain here, but if you’ve ever seen the movie “Sliding Doors” with its alternate reality story lines that intersect at certain points throughout the film, I’ll be scanning you for the stickiest intersection points.

I have found that these crossover points — i.e., parallel Universe bleed-throughs — can act like portals into alternate realities, preferred or not. That’s why you want to approach them consciously and respectfully, so that you recognize the power of the moment and choose wisely. The initial shift looks subtle, because if there weren’t enough similarities between the timelines/alternate realities, then the bleed-through moments wouldn’t happen so easily; however, in retrospect, such moments or decisions often seem “Fated.”

This reading gives you a heads up regarding the types of feelings, thoughts and experiences to watch for if you’re looking to sidestep onto a more positive timeline without needing to slog through linear time to get your desired life. In some cases, the preferred outcome even requires a sidestep, because the laws of cause and effect already set in motion on the current timeline are barreling you toward their “inevitable” end result. Fortunately, linear time’s not all it’s cracked up to be! These “timeline hops,” “portal points,” “reality jumps” — whatever you want to call them — are not only possible but powerful, and with awareness and practice, you can learn to surf such opportunities, charting your own course from current to next closest to preferred realities.

$133/hour if prepaid on or before 8/31/14.

(Offer can be multiplied if you would like one or more follow-up tune-ins, since, depending on what I discover, your most accessible hop might be to a stepping stone reality from which to make your next boldly conscious, chosen hop. Such follow-up sessions can provide continuity and a clear reflection as you Fun House Mirror your way through wrinkles in time.)

Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for any or all of these specials.

Last Few Days for the August Special

Wow, I guess this one was really needed! People have been bursting forth from the long ago past to reach out for extra support this month asking, “Do you, by chance have any coaching specials? I’ve been doing so well, but now I could really use a sounding board and extra clarity.” Coaching special? Why, yes, as a matter of fact, I do. It’s always so interesting to see in retrospect why I’ve intuited each monthly special based on the energies I feel bubbling to the surface at the beginning of the month. If the following resonates with you, you still have some time to sign up. These sessions don’t need to be used this month; that’s just when this very deep discount ends. 🙂

AUGUST SPECIAL

So many people have recently asked me if I “ever do intuitive coaching” that I’m feeling called to offer another coaching special this month. The answer is yes, I do offer intuitive coaching. I am just a stickler about the differences between coaching and therapy, and I am extremely careful not to do something for you that you can appropriately do for yourself.

Coaching, as I offer it, is for people who recognize that they are the primary factor in making changes in their own life. Just as an athletic coach can assess an athlete’s talents and skills, recognize weak or sloppy habits, design targeted exercises to foster strong spots and strengthen weak spots, as well as help to motivate and inspire, I do much the same thing as an intuitive coach. I can and will do all these things, but I cannot and will not play the game for you.

Depending on your goal, I may bust you on some hidden but highly sabotaging beliefs, help you understand and thereby release and/or transcend externally imposed patterns, and encourage you to get very, very specific about how you’d love to feel in your new, healed life. I will not use coaching time to encourage you to wallow (or wallow with you) in old drama except for the expressed purpose of quickly using that negativity to determine what you’d rather be feeling and experiencing. My intuitive coaching is mostly present, future, and often parallel oriented, rather than past. The past I do tend to bring through is often relevant generational or past life insights — again, with an eye towards discovering and supporting you to embrace your preferred Now ‘n’ Later.

“Support” in intuitive coaching does not mean listening to a weekly recap of all the ways life isn’t perfect. That only underscores and amplifies those things. “Support” in intuitive coaching means helping you to recognize how you tell your own story to yourself and others and how to become a better storyteller of deeper, more satisfying and more pleasant stories. I’m trained as an English major, and I will urge you to explore the symbols, plot, characters, patterns and foreshadowing in your own life. I’ll encourage you to express your tale and your life in active rather than passive voice. I will “read,” brainstorm and help you create, edit and re-vision your story, so long as you remember your own role as author and protagonist. (If you really, really want to remain a victim or minor character in your own life, then I’m not the right coach for you.)

Sometimes this change process takes longer than others. I can help you understand pacing, cosmic/energetic plot, and character influences, as well as suggest ways to streamline your story for faster action, but you maintain the primary power and responsibility for expressing your own life. You have far more control over your timing than I do. “How long will this take?” depends on a lot of inner subtleties that I can help you understand and shift; however, I would not presume to remove or steal those from you. Those subtleties, nuances and unique experiences are yours to make of and do with what you will.

If intuitive coaching as I offer it sounds like something you’d find helpful, then this month’s special offers a chance to engage at a lower rate. Normally, coaching sessions are $175/hour or $600/4 hours. This month (at a pre-edited 444 word count!) we’re calling in the angels to support the coaching process at a Special Rate of $444/4 hours. Offer valid if purchased through August 31, 2013, but sessions can be redeemed as needed before or after that date. Please contact me if you’d like to sign up.

Too funny! I had asked the angels to give me a sign that this was the right package to offer. That 444 word count appeared at just the right time. According to Doreen Virtue, “444 – The angels are surrounding you now, reassuring you of their love and help. Don’t worry because the angels’ help is nearby.” So there you have it: angelic endorsement of this month’s special. 😉

Cheers!

March 2013 Specials

As always, the monthly specials arise from a creative brew of inspiration, client requests and reading the month’s energies. March 2013 offers great transformation for humanity, and I designed these specials to support and empower those transitions.

Tune-In, Tune-Up

Three half-hour Intuitive Life Coaching Sessions (total 1.5 hours) for $188. I’ve received a lot of requests for Life Coaching during the past few months and especially this past week. Most of the people asking for sessions have specifically asked for half-hour check-ins instead of the more usual hour-long offerings. I am happy to offer support for self-motivated people looking for timely affirmations, clarity and objective help with difficult decisions. This “Tune-In, Tune-Up” package offers the equivalent of three $90/half hour sessions at a savings of $82. It’s like buying two and getting the third for $8.

Intuitive Life Coaching sessions work best as a concentrated bunch, rather than spread out over six months or a year. That doesn’t necessarily mean once per week, but these shorter sessions are designed to supercharge your motivation and encourage continued momentum for people wanting to make lasting changes sooner rather than later.

Offer valid if prepaid by 3/31/13. Please contact me to sign up.

Healing Skills Reclamation

This $77 Special Past Life Reading focuses on your previous lifetime(s) as a healer, helping you to access deeply buried healing skills. Such skills may appear as “natural gifts,” because you’ve already studied and/or mastered them in previous or parallel lifetimes. We are each individual expressions of Infinite Potential; however, some of us resonate with and respond more strongly to certain healing or creative modalities. The Healing Skills Reclamation will help you find out why and will also help you to become aware of which modalities and skills may come easier for you or produce faster, more fluid results in this incarnation. This topic arises in Past Life Readings, but I’ve never offered it as a dedicated Special. Here’s your chance.

Offer valid if prepaid by 3/31/13. Please contact me to sign up.

Jennifer Hoffman ~ Indigo & Crystals: Unemployed or Unmanaged?

Thanks to the Golden Age Daily for posting this Jennifer Hoffman article, which expresses much of what arises from Intuitive Life Path Assessments and Life Coaching. Despite the fact that we live in a post-single-career world, so many people struggle with their parents’ or grandparents’ definition of “a real job.” I love Jennifer’s discussion of “work” and how real work can mean doing and being our deepest passion.

Many people feel called back to the Earth right now, and I have a number of clients deliberately downsizing job and home size so that they spend less but live more abundantly. Other clients are in transition from the “normal” job world into careers like coaching, teaching yoga or Reiki, urban homesteading, or freelance writing and editing. Jennifer’s article addresses some of the skills, discipline and vision needed in order to live well under such circumstances. I know from personal experience that it is possible to turn a “no,” a “bad economy” or physical disability into a fulfilling career that pays the bills. Yes, it takes work, dedication and a willingness to experiment and address the world’s needs, but a world on the brink of so much chaos and systemic failure leaves much room for creativity and innovation.

David likes to say, “As the new arises, the old shall fall away.” We desperately need people to help the new arise! If you feel called outside of the old, comfortable cubicle, or if you’ve found yourself booted out of a decaying system, fear not! Options abound … and who knows? You just might become some of that change we all long to see in the world.

Jennifer Hoffman ~ Indigo & Crystals: Unemployed or Unmanaged?

Enlightening Life

At the moment, everyone in my immediate family is unemployed, by society’s standards. This means that no one has an official j-o-b, in which they work for someone. I couldn’t be more thrilled, especially for my children who, as Indigos, have tried really hard to fit into the regular, ‘normal’ job world and it just didn’t work for them. It never worked for me either and after six layoffs in eight years I decided to pursue another path. But while ‘unemployed’ is what this is called, everyone is working, although their gifts, talents, time and energy resources are not being managed by someone else.

We’re in the midst of a significant societal transformation that is changing the world of work, how work is defined, what counts as work and how we view our work day and work world. For many of us, whom I’ll call ‘older’ Indigos, work meant a job, following rules, living on a fixed salary, being told what to do and when to do it. It meant having a ‘boss’ or being managed by someone else. If you’re like me, that didn’t work too well for you. For the new generations, work can involve anything they want, as today’s possibilities are endless. Who would have thought that someone could work as a game designer, blogger, travel writer, or YouTube personality?

The way we view work has to change with what is happening to our jobs. Lifetime employment is history, self-managed employment is the new trend. If you hate your job, you are in a great place to make powerful changes but first, understand why you dislike your job. Do you have wonderful ideas you want to give voice to? Are you feeling squeezed by the limitations of your job, management or workplace? Do you dread going to work every day because of the politics and game playing? This is your Indigo energy expressing itself. The next question is, ‘what are you going to do about it?’

Working at a job you dislike, feel stifled by or feel out of integrity with is soul wrenching. What do you want to do and if you can get beyond your belief that money is tied to a job, instead of work that you love, you have taken a powerful step into valuing your gifts and talents enough to allow them to be an active part of your life. Indigos are here to change the world and they’re on the cusp of those changes. They don’t tolerate politics, limitations, barriers to growth or being managed. They’re happiest when they’re doing work they love, using their gifts and talents and confidently sharing them with the world in valued and valuable ways, which includes earning a comfortable living.

If this resonates with you, it is time to take a peek under the covers and see what is in your heart. What do you love to do? What do you think you do well? How would you finish this sentence, ‘If I didn’t have to worry about money, I would be doing …..?’ That can be your next step if you have the courage to follow your heart, bring your Indigo courage to the forefront and value your gifts and talents enough to share them with the world in valued and valuable ways. Go for it, please, the world needs what you have to offer now. The opportunities are there for you, step into them confidently.

Big Changes for 2011

As many of you know, I’ve been doing a cleanse for the entire month of January. Although this Dr. Natura Colonix works on the physical level, I’ve intended detoxification and release on all levels. Let’s just say, it’s been an interesting (and intense!) month so far.

Some of you have let me know that my International Renaissance Coaching website won’t open. Thanks for your concern. Yes, I am aware of this problem. It appears that my website host (irun.com) has gone out of business without warning, taking down all the hosted sites with it. I’ve initiated a domain forwarding to this blog, while I decide what, if anything to do about my former website. Fortunately, I had put much of the content on this blog, so, aside from a shopping cart and cleaner template, I’ve not lost much. I can still invoice everyone from PayPal. For now, you just won’t be able to pay directly on my website.

At first, I thought, “This could not have come at a worse time!” I’m speaking at the Physician’s Round Table Conference on Thursday and introducing several speakers there on Friday. This meeting of diverse and prestigious colleagues from a variety of disciplines, especially the medical community, seemed like such a great opportunity. What was I supposed to do with all the business cards listing internationalrenaissancecoaching.com???

Once I managed to forward the domain (I hope!), I began to consider other implications. I spent much of 2010 painting portal doors, encoding them with intentions, most of which have already come true or are in obvious (to me) process of unfolding. I’ve felt for awhile that my business needed to change, but I didn’t know in what way. I just knew that I felt called to paint doors and learn more about Runes and other symbols and systems, including Tarot. I’d get glimmers of an eventual outcome, but the how remained ever so elusive. Familiar with major life transitions, since I lead so many people through them via coaching, I recognized 2010 as an incubation period.

Then 2011 rolled around and things started shifting due to this cleanse, timing, and lots of meditation. My comfort zone suddenly seemed awfully constricted. Even my clothes started to feel tight. For a few weeks I wondered if I had suddenly gained a lot of weight, but trying on clothes at stores resulted in my usual size. My own tight clothes symbolized a “too tight life,” similar to what I felt just prior to my 1998 brain injury. As a Medical Intuitive, I know that when life begins to feel too tight, the soul’s crying out for change. If we listen, things can shift in seamless, graceful ways. If we resist, then “life” often steps in to force the issue. I, for one, have had enough trauma-drama to invoke change.

Deciding to opt for what I now call “the ease and please” route, I began to coach myself. When I looked closely and honestly, I found myself unable to deny some rather uncomfortable facts:

I could suddenly no longer envision a sustainable life coaching practice. In fact, I seemed to be getting serious kicks from the Universe to move in other directions. I could see the intuitive readings continuing to grow and flourish, but whenever I tried to focus on expanding the life coaching portion, I felt anxious, depressed, uncentered and “lost.”

I’ve felt nudges about transitioning out of life coaching for awhile, but my move to Madison brought those to the forefront. Whereas before I could coast through the shifts without making a conscious decision, I was suddenly faced with a need to find a new bank, completely revamp the shopping cart option on my website and create a new PayPal account independent of my ex-husband (Stephen’s) original account used to build my coaching website. Wisconsin has no Bank of America branches, and multiple calls and emails to PayPal and irun.com revealed a surprisingly involved process of switching things over. Prior to my move, the overlap hadn’t inconvenienced either of us, but a few things happened simultaneously, all of them screaming, “Cancel those accounts and open new ones!”

Since I go to Chicago fairly regularly and conduct most of my banking online, I dragged my feet about opening a local business account in Madison. Somehow I just couldn’t bring myself to make all these changes for a company called International Renaissance COACHING, which I took over from my (now ex-)husband, especially when I’ve intended 2011 as such a break free year. Beginning anew with the old name, old site and old business model just seemed backwards.

And so … I’ve decided to let things incubate a little more. I have some very cool visions of what’s on its way, and those elusive how’s seem much more visible these days. I will likely open a brand new business, with a new name, new model and new website. You’ll see some overlap, especially with my intuitive services and classes, but life coaching will not remain the focal point.

I don’t know the timing; however, this post serves as my official announcement that I’m winding down my life coaching practice. I will certainly finish up with current clients, and I may even take on some additional folks in the short term. I will continue to offer past life readings, soul readings, medical intuitive sessions and intuitive life path assessments, as well as Reiki classes. I just don’t know how much longer I’ll be taking on new coaching clients.

If you’ve ever wanted to work with me as your life coach, now really IS your chance. For the rest of January, I’ll offer life coaching 5-packs for $555, as I did during the first week of January. This special includes 5 hours of coaching for $45 less than my usual 4-pack price. I will re-evaluate whether or not to accept new coaching clients periodically as time progresses. As I said, I don’t know the timeline yet and feel committed to helping current clients reach their goals. I just felt nudged to announce the shift today, so that anyone on the fence would know that time is of the essence.

Thanks for growing with me! Exciting times, indeed …

Much Love and Many Blessings,
Laura
