Medical Intuition and Family Lineage

An interesting question arrived via email this weekend, and I thought I’d share non-confidential portions of that Q&A here in case anyone else has similar questions about Medical Intuition and familial patterns:

Question:

I remember you telling me that when you do readings you see the maternal family side on one side and the paternal on the other- was it maternal side on the person’s left side (their left not the left if you are looking at them)?

Answer:

Good to hear from you! I don’t actually see things the way most people do, which is one reason I have not yet developed a generic training program. I am sure you can find generalized instructions online somewhere. That’s just not my own process.

I simply “know” which side of the family it comes from, and it appears to me in whatever way the client can understand. If they are visual, I get visual info (but not always in family tree, left/right format… it  might be an image). If someone is auditory, I get words or phrases or instructions. If someone is kinesthetic I feel — what they feel or even what their ancestors felt. It’s more complex than left or right, but also much more detailed. 🙂

Best advice is to find out what it looks like when YOU do readings, and that comes with experience and comparing the info you sense with available and verifiable information. It is a process to do it the way I do it. I think there are a lot more what I would call plug and play medical Intuitive trainings out there. I don’t know how accurate they are, as I have no experience with taking the courses. I will say that there are very few people I would refer someone to for medical intuition, but that does not mean they aren’t out there! I just don’t personally know them.

I hope that helps in some way. Traditionally, left is masculine and right feminine, but some people reverse that because right brain controls left side and vice versa. 😉

Big blessings,
Laura

NOTE: If you or someone you love is interested in exploring family lineage from a soul perspective, please check out the December 2016 Specials, two of which can be tailored to explore those themes. Just let me know of your specific interest when you contact me.

November 2016 Specials

November always feels like a good time to offer support for the soul, so this month’s offerings reflect this energy of tending our inside in the midst of holidays, election results, worldly demands, and whatever those mean for each person.

Sacred Soul Session

This half hour session helps you to reclaim and nurture a sense of the sacred in ways that foster your soul’s deepest longings. For some people, this might be a look into your soul’s reason for showing up at this time and place — the perennial “Why am I here?” topic. For others, it might offer a uniquely designed ceremony to release a past grief or regret. It might offer a list of resources specifically tailored to you at this point on your path. For some people, it might mean helping you to utilize skills you already have in new ways that deepen your experience. For still others, a Sacred Soul Session might include general instructions about how to design meaningful rituals and select proper timing, so that you can incorporate ritual as a regular means of empowerment and healing.

Without performing the reading, I don’t know exactly what you’ll receive, but the reading will focus on bringing your outer life much more into alignment with your inner being.

So called “primitive” societies value the importance and power of ritual. As we shift through so many changes, both outward and inward, collective and individual, effective ritual moves energy in ways the rational mind, affirmations, and emotions can only approximate. The Sacred Soul Session arises from my recognition of the deeply compassionate and aligned Wisdom of the Soul, and how small, symbolic acts can effect enormous change.

$77 for this half hour session. Special must be purchased on or before November 30, 2016, although sessions can be scheduled after that time. Please contact me to schedule.

45-Minute Medical Intuitive Readings for $133

I usually only offer hour or half-hour sessions, because they make for much simpler scheduling on my end; however, sometimes people have more than a half-hour’s worth of topics to discuss yet not quite an hour. This special is for anyone who would like more support and insights than we can cover in a half-hour but who doesn’t want to commit to an entire hour. (Save $42.) Offer valid if prepaid on or before November 30, 2016. Please contact me to sign up.

Quick Medical Intuitive Insights to Common Issues

This is a repost of a 2009 article, but these issues continue to resurface. I receive so many of the same questions from people that I thought I might share a few general tidbits here. These aren’t meant to replace medical advice, of course; they’re meant to give you pause and reflection on what your body might want to tell you through your symptoms. If these don’t resonate with you, there may be a deeper soul issue wanting to come through. Please feel free to contact me for a personalized reading. ‘Til then, enjoy!

Hip Pain/Hip Issues: People rarely call me for this issue on its own, but I notice it a lot when I do general energy reads in coaching sessions. People are always amazed when I ask out of the blue how their hips feel!

Hips represent where our steps begin and where our legs connect to the rest of our body. As such, they often blow out, get stiff, dislocate, ache, or even break when people begin to contemplate a major life change. I find it interesting to note if it’s the hip of the dominant leg (the one you first step with) or the non-dominant one, as this can tell you where you are in the process of your decision to change.

Skin Flare-Ups These often have to do with visibility issues and the “face” you show the world. I’ve written more extensively on skin issues here.

Lack of Motivation: i.e. wanting to change, but not feeling focused enough or engaged enough to follow through with a course of action. This often occurs in conjunction with Candida Overgrowth. Candida vibrates to the type of victim that feels oppressed or overburdened by all the worlds concerns, be they family, job, or other “one-way” relationship. (For an in-depth discussion of Candida, you might enjoy this interview between colleague Elicia Miller and myself.)

I also find that motivation struggles arise when the supposed goal really does not reflect the deepest longings of the soul. In this case, the “prize” is simply not enticing enough to move through the required work. In some cases, the so-called prize might even represent a kind of prison. I recommend writing an uncensored list of 101 Wishes to see what comes up. Any patterns? Any surprises? Life coaching and/or Intuitive Life Path Assessments can also help to clarify goals and deeper longings.

A fair number of people have a mortal fear of achieving their soul’s dream. Yes, I said “mortal fear” as in fear of death. On some level, they associate this dream with the stoppage of time into permanent bliss. Doesn’t that sound a bit like, um, heaven? Death?

Souls are like little children who believe everything we say and take it literally. Sometimes we need to unpack the symbols, words and metaphors we use to describe or envision our “goals.” Sometimes we need to shake them out and iron them flat, remove any wrinkles lest our souls see boogie men or monsters in ordinary wishes.

Time does not freeze-frame when the soul steps into its life purpose. Yes, sometimes souls choose to leave the body when they’ve finished their goals or when it’s clear they will never finish them in this incarnation; however, that does not mean that yours will. Finding your life path is a road to liberation IN the body. It’s a means of experiencing “the kingdom of heaven within you.” By allowing your soul to receive what it came here to receive, you help to reconnect the spirit and earthly realms. You can give yourself permission to do this in body. If you had wanted to bliss out in the heavenly realms without experiencing any of the 3D effects, then you wouldn’t have bothered to take on a body. You have one now; have fun in it!

Thyroid/Neck/Throat Problems: Most people recognize that the throat chakra represents how they share their voice in the world. Many people do not know that the ears and the throat are part of the same chakra: how you hear and how you’re heard. If you have examined and re-examined the ways you speak your truth yet still have imbalances in the throat/neck/thyroid region, you might want to look at how you hear. Do you talk over others? Interrupt them? Do you shut out clairaudient awareness, explaining it away as “just a silly thought”? Since nature craves balance, a lack of listening will sometimes present itself in the same way as too much silence. In macrobiotics they say that everything eventually becomes its opposite: something overly yin eventually becomes yang; something overly yang eventually becomes yin. If you can’t figure out what’s happening with your throat, check your ears.

Dodging Health Crises

Just a quick post today about something that frequently presents during Medical Intuitive Sessions: how to dodge or minimize a pending health crisis. I often hear from clients after a doctor has given them some kind of dire prognosis, or when some new symptom results in that pit of the stomach realization that something is wrong, very wrong, indeed, with life. These people call me before getting a diagnosis, because they fear the finality of a medical diagnosis and also on some level know that their attitude or the right changes can shift them out of crisis into a “close call.”

You can find many books that remind you of the influence of your mind and emotions on your health. Some favorites include:

“The Biology of Belief,” by Dr. Bruce Lipton

“Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body Connection,” by John E. Sarno

“Why People Don’t Heal, and How They Can,” by Caroline Myss

anything written by Louise Hay

In my fifteen years as a professional Medical Intuitive, I’ve also noticed some general patterns, which I’ll share here:

  1. Your body usually speaks in the most obvious metaphors. Issues approach the other layers — mental, emotional, spiritual, screaming intuition — before they manifest in the body. If something goes physical, it means you’ve somehow managed to ignore or sideline the earlier messages.
  2. The only thing that speaks as loudly as physical pain for most people is some kind of financial crisis. Not surprisingly, the two often arrive close together.
  3. Your body never betrays you. When I speak with someone about the soul reasons behind his or her various health issues, most people respond with a combination of relief, deep recognition, goosebumps, shivers, and/or tears of gratitude. Your body doesn’t want to cause you (or itself) pain. Rather, your body “takes one for the team” so that your soul can live its full expression in this lifetime. Your body’s willingness to break down in order to remind you of your truth and purpose is a supreme act of love, not an attack.
  4. Each illness or injury has a specific energy signature, but some signatures cluster into general patterns. I often find people with a throat chakra issue, for example, have had multiple whiplash injuries, tonsillitis, hearing problems, and TMJ — and not surprisingly, when pressed these people usually admit to having big issues with self-expression. Similarly, people who have multiple concussions or NDE’s that fail to stop them in their tracks will often come down with Chronic Lyme Disease or some other mysterious neurological illness. Breast cancer survivors who haven’t made permanent shifts will often present with lung issues, circulatory problems, or an autoimmune condition — all heart chakra imbalances. Receiving a physical healing without addressing the underlying concerns simply morphs the issues into the next available health crisis.
  5. People can recover from all sorts of “impossible” situations by aligning with the true path of their soul. Again, your body never betrays you. When you recognize the interconnectedness of all things, including all the nooks and crannies of complex you, ways begin to reveal themselves. 

    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

    Don’t haggle with your health or with your soul. Approached with curiosity and love, every health “crisis” opens new ways of living a more authentic life.

  6. If you embrace the message of a health crisis before it fully manifests, you can often transmute the issue right then and there. I’ve witnessed many a spontaneous healing in my day when someone truly accepts the message their body has begun to scream at them. When people acknowledge the soul cries through a health scare, test results often reveal themselves as “mistakes,” “lost files,” or “surprising turnarounds.” I’ve known people’s cancerous tumors to disappear overnight, hepatitis to evaporate, MS to disappear, cavities to refill themselves, legal blindness to turn 20/20 … and more. I feel so privileged to work with so many people during health crises, because this process reminds me just how amazingly fluid and intentionally benevolent reality can be. We are incredible beings living in a miraculous universe!

 

 

February 2016 Specials

I know many of you have been asking about these, so thanks for your patience. I only post specials as inspiration sparks. Here are the February 2016 Specials:

December 2015 Specials

Extra Support For You:

$77 Past Life Readings

All that decking the halls and gathering of friends and family can sometimes feel a little less than jolly. For those of you who find this time of year stressful due to old family dynamics or strained relationships, I’m offering a discount and shorter than usual past life readings. (Normally $175 for an hour, this special offers a half hour past life reading for $77.)

Over the years, I’ve found past life readings to be the most transformative sessions about relationships. Locating the soul connections in their larger context helps make sense of nagging concerns or old wounds, opening possibilities for forgiveness and ease. Sessions must be prepaid by 12/31/15; however, they can be redeemed whenever you feel you need extra insight into relationship challenges.

GIFT CERTIFICATES

Each year, clients ask me how they might gift their friends and family members some time with me. I’ve found that my clients are intuitive enough to know if someone is ready for and will find these services of value, so I’ve provided two options, which you can mix and match for as many recipients as you’d like. (The only criterion is that you cannot purchase a gift certificate for yourself –but you can certainly request one!)

$99 Gift Certificates

For those of you wishing to gift someone with a Medical Intuitive Session, Soul Reading, Past Life Reading, and/or Intuitive Coaching Session, this $99 Gift Certificate covers a 45-minute session in person, or by phone or Yahoo Instant Messenger. Valid only as a gift for someone else. Prepaid on or before 12/31/15, Gift Certificates are valid through 2016 and include a customized PDF that can be emailed or printed out for the recipient. Please contact me to make arrangements.


$44 Tarot Reading

Half hour phone or in-person tarot reading with me. Only one $44 Tarot Reading per gift recipient. You can, however, add the $44 Tarot reading to the $99 Special for a “deluxe gift set.” Offer valid through December 31, 2015. Gift certificates valid through 2016. If you’d like to purchase this for someone, please contact me by email and let me know the name of the person. Once purchased, a PDF gift certificate will be provided to you via email. You can print it out to include in a card, or send it via email to your lucky loved one.

Last Few Days for April Specials, Plus Class Reminders

APRIL 2015 SPECIALS

45-Minute Medical Intuitive Readings for $133

I usually only offer hour or half-hour sessions, because they make for much simpler scheduling on my end; however, sometimes people have more than a half-hour’s worth of topics to discuss yet not quite an hour. This special is for anyone who would like more support and insights than we can cover in a half-hour but who doesn’t want to commit to an entire hour. (Save $42.) Offer valid if prepaid on or before April 30, 2015. Please contact me to sign up.

$77 Rune Readings

I sometimes write about working with Runes for protection or as creative building blocks of reality. For years, I have painted Runes into portal doors, used them for meditation, placed them on intention altars, and as shorthand for projecting certain qualities of energy across “time” and space. Occasionally, Runes come up during sessions as an easy way for someone to introduce a new vibration into their energy field, as a recommended symbol to include in a tattoo they’ve considered, or as a way to cultivate whatever subconscious associations a particular Rune evokes. Most people use Runes simply for divination, although I find that’s one of the more limited ways of embracing Runic energy. This half-hour reading offers whatever you’d like to learn from or about the Runes. It may be part Runic divination, part instruction, or perhaps a trigger for your own creativity. I decided to offer the session, because I get a lot of questions about “the best Rune to use for ____.”

Runic study takes many years, and several different systems of Runes exist, but you can use this reading as a Touchstone to find resource recommendations tailored to you and your needs and interests. You can also just see what comes up, treating it like a Tarot reading, which then spurs further discussion and intuitive insights. $77 if prepaid on or before April 30, 2015. Please contact me to sign up.

Mikao Usui ~ founder of Reiki

REIKI LEVEL 1 CERTIFICATION CLASSES

Reiki Level 1 Certification Class in Goshen, Indiana

Reiki Level 1 Certification Class in Allentown, Pennsylvania
Saturday, July 18, 2015
10 a.m.-5 p.m. Hosted by my sweet, artistic and very groovy sister in Allentown, PA (address given after sign-up)

Reiki is an ancient healing method rediscovered in the 19th century by the Japanese monk Dr. Mikao Usui. The “Rei” in Reiki stands for “universal” or” spiritual,” and the “ki” corresponds to the “life force energy” known as “Chi” or “prana” in other Eastern systems of healing and energy work or yoga. It offers an easy, non-draining way to provide hands-on or distant healing through energy exchange and profound relaxation, allowing the recipient’s body, mind, soul and spirit to access their own deepest healing. Reiki can be practiced professionally, or as an adjunct to one’s own spiritual path and holistic lifestyle. I teach the Usui Method of Reiki, which is the most traditional style from which all other types derive.

Students will learn and/or receive:

• History, nature, and science of Reiki.
• Experiencing Reiki energy.
• Using Reiki with other healing arts.
• Discussion of 21-day cleanse.
• Treating animals and plants.
• Essence scanning process.
• Establishing a Reiki practice.
• Practice self-treatment hand positions.
• Handouts and resource list.
• Reiki Circles.
• What a Reiki lineage represents.
• Giving a Reiki treatment with hand positions.
• Ethics and Legal Responsibilities as a Reiki Practitioner.
• Reiki Level 1 Attunement.

Certification: At the end of the training, each student will receive a certificate acknowledging completion of Reiki Level 1, as well as recognition as a Reiki Level 1 Practitioner. Taking any Reiki training with Laura Bruno also qualifies each student to audit (at no cost) any additional Reiki classes taught by her, up to and including the level completed with her (space permitting).

Fee: Regular rate for Reiki 1 Certification is $175. If prepaid in full two weeks in advance, cost is $150.

Pre-registration and a $25 non-refundable deposit are required to reserve your spot.  We’ve got nice groups in both locations so far, but as of 4/27, we do still have room for others to join us.

About the teacher: Laura Bruno, MA, RMT has taught Reiki Certification classes around the United States since 2002. An internationally known Medical Intuitive and Intuitive Life Coach, Laura has authored three books and hundreds of articles on natural healing, mind-body-spirit-soul connections, raw food, and intuition. She has spoken at health conferences and has appeared as a guest on numerous radio shows and blogs.

Experience, Theory, Projection and Intuitive Healing

The following post summarizes ongoing questions and discussions based on many years of intuitive healing, plus teaching and coaching others to develop their own intuitive healing abilities and careers. With the energies intensifying on this planet, many more people find themselves empathing others’ symptoms or increasing their intuitive awareness of others’ health issues. I’ve received a relatively high influx of clients lately wondering if they also are called to offer Medical Intuitive services, but they don’t know where to begin. This is not a comprehensive article, but rather a list of general guidelines, tips and stumbling blocks.

1. Your own healing challenges and experiences both do and do not matter.

On the one hand, your victory over various personal health challenges can become a source of inspiration to your clients — a template of what’s possible. Overcoming “impossible” diagnoses through non-traditional methods offers anecdotal “proof” of an individual’s power to alter pain, symptoms, biology, physicality, and even DNA.

I have personally experienced instantaneous, near-instantaneous and even long-term “miraculous” healings enough to know — to the core of my being — that I can overcome absurd odds and bend reality to my will. I’ve also walked with and witnessed both clients and students who’ve shifted internal patterns, visualized and/or energetically altered their physical and inner terrain and outer lives enough that dire diagnoses “mysteriously” disappear during follow-up tests. I’ve watched symptoms evaporate or become highly conditional, occurring only within the presence of old, worn-out patterns. Having personal confidence, personal experience and personal understanding of the power of mind, emotions, energy, spirit and belief to create healing are all valuable things to bring to the intuitive healing table.

They matter. At least to you, and they might even matter to your clients.

Here’s the tricky part, though, which differentiates someone who can heal themselves and someone who can effectively help others to heal themselves: in working with others, it helps to hold that vision of all their personal power and healing potential while also meeting people wherever they are. Someone in extreme pain who has relegated themselves to the status of victim ultimately does not care how you feel or think or what you personally experienced; they care about their own, personal, lived experience. If they cannot grasp whatever you’d love to share, or if they don’t aspire to your life circumstances (despite how much you happen to love your life), then your experience doesn’t feel relevant or helpful to them.

If you talk too much about your own perfect health or your own dramatic recovery, people will dismiss your experience as “exceptional” or “well, that’s just you,” or else avoid you so that they don’t need to explain how little they want to be you. Helping people recognize their own potential involves actually getting to know these people — as individual beings with individual preferences, rather than just “another you” waiting for liberation.

2. “Health,” “freedom,” and “happiness” mean vastly different things to different people.

With all the emphasis on “Oneness” and “Unity consciousness,” people like to assume that everyone wants the same things. Indeed, in broad strokes, most people do want some version of health, freedom and happiness; however, the individual details and definitions of these things vary. A lot. Enormously, in fact. I cannot stress enough just how differently people define what they do or do not want. Truly, one person’s heaven is another’s hell. I know this not just by guessing or theorizing, but through thirteen years of conversations with thousands of individuals while I questioned and listened and gave them tools for self discovery. People do not all aspire to the same standards or expectations. People value different things, and the priorities of those values make a huge difference in how or if they will recognize, accept and embody health, freedom and happiness.

One of the greatest challenges for would be healers or Medical Intuitive’s is taking care not to project your own definitions and expectations onto your client. Not everyone values the physical over the emotional. Not everyone wants to become a body builder or a world class athlete. Some people not only don’t aspire to such things, but actually look down upon them as a waste of time and energy. Some people will gladly accept some ill physical health as a means to avoid an emotional confrontation that would end their marriage or career. Some people live by an unconscious set of Catch-22 rules that work against full healing, because they can’t imagine how one set of circumstances can blend with another set into a cohesive reality. Some people know exactly what their soul cries out to do, but lack courage or permission to take their leap of faith. On a soul level, some people are here to experience self-sacrifice and quiet service this time around, while others are here to release their creativity in dramatic, visible ways.

Most people with chronic health issues lack clarity of what they really want and haven’t given themselves permission to act upon those preferences even if they discover them. All of these things and more can factor into healing, even though a “simple” shift could produce “perfect” physical results.

3. The body never betrays the soul. The body is the soul’s devoted lover, willing to sacrifice itself — even to the point of death — in order to encourage true soul healing and expression.

Individual diagnoses and physical “cures” matter less than soul satisfaction. I see this time and again, when people go through with traditional procedures only to have another health crisis replace the “cured” one. Without altering the pattern, even spontaneous healing derived from the mental plane can result in a return of symptoms or (often) an even bigger problem. It’s not unlike in the Bible when Jesus talks about being careful when you cast out demons:

“When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.

Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.” (Matthew 12: 43-45)

Clearing the underlying pattern — the root cause — of the physical condition ensures real healing instead of the mere appearance of healing. As Carl Jung said, “When a situation is not made conscious, it happens outside, as fate.” Not everyone incarnates to live an easy, peasy, non-dramatic life. Many people incarnate to heal old wounds, to rework old patterns, and/or to integrate long fragmented versions of themselves. Intuitive healing — as opposed to just being a human x-ray, diagnostic and switch-flipping machine — honors the complex interplay between all the parts of someone’s being, especially the soul.

4. Some “disabilities” enable other abilities.

David and I watched “Frida” last night and were struck, along with others, by how much the beauty, poignancy and power of Frida Kahlo’s art stemmed from her own intense and chronic pain. Milton’s blindness encouraged him to summon Archangel Raphael as muse and poet of Paradise Lost. A long history exists of blind seers or of Faery Doctors struck blind in one eye, which enables them to see the Otherworld and the energies and beings affecting someone’s health. The “Whispering Witches of Poland,” credited with thousands of successful cures, list specific restrictions to which they’ve agreed in order to be able to offer the kind of healing they do. Would anyone have felt so inspired by Helen Keller without her blindness and deafness? To what degree did Beethoven’s hearing loss inspire his music? Or Van Gogh’s madness inspire his art? Without an extended illness, the lawyer Matisse would never have begun painting. The list goes on and on ….

This paradox of disabilities triggering other abilities deserves careful consideration, because if the soul deeply longs to express whatever ability the disability triggers or creates time/permission for, then a physical healing might mean no real healing. Helping people to locate those deepest desires and give themselves permission to express them in some way opens the possibility that they no longer require symptoms as a means of permission. In some cases, though, especially with regard to vision, the lack of “normal” eyesight facilitates vastly enhanced vision of another sort. When we help people to recognize both their strengths and longings — and we help them to create space for these strengths and longings to play out without hurting those around them, then we make huge strides in reducing the “need” for “disabilities.” Sometimes those disabilities remain as differences, and if the person experiences far more soul satisfaction and lives more authentically and generously, then who are we to judge them for “not healing”?

5. Learn to love characters and to speak in symbols, stories, myths, poetry, and paradox.

English majors, visionaries, poets and journalists can hone their natural skills as storytellers and artists to help others rewrite their own story and re-create their own symbolic picture of themselves. Story and symbol speak directly to the subconscious parts of us that create our experience of reality. They are incredibly powerful and effective, and both universal and individual.

Although you can take classes in Medical Intuition, studying “The Humanities” very much supports working with humans. When we read a book or watch a well-done play or film, we appreciate complex characters. We get bored by “flat” or “one-dimensional” characters because something in us knows better. On the soul level, we abhor such lazy stereotypes and limitations. We consider pieces “masterful” if they can make us empathize with villains or love the unlovable. For some reason, what we appreciate in literature and film, we often judge or dismiss in real people. The Ancient Greeks knew the power of catharsis from theater, but our culture makes most people recoil from imperfection. Bizarrely enough, our culture also celebrates mediocrity and rejects excellence.

Yep, culture in the 21st century gets people coming and going! It judges people for being too health focused and successful just as much as it judges people for being weak and dependent. Perhaps even more so. Basically, our culture honors the collective experience or the selfish narcissist, while harshly judging anyone attempting to live authentically, with recognition and acceptance of both light and dark. Effective Medical Intuitive work helps people through the Dark Night of the Soul as much as it celebrates the Peak Mountain Top Experiences. In recognizing, nurturing and honoring the soul, intuitive healing helps people real-ize that “I’m just being human” can mean something extraordinarily powerful, creative, satisfying and good.

Last Day to Sign Up for November 2014 Specials

Just a reminder: due to popular request, I extended these two specials from October, but they will not be extended again into December. Please contact me today if you’d like to sign up.

NOVEMBER 2014 SPECIALS

$77 Medical Intuitive Sessions

Lots of healing in the works these days! As such, I’ve been “informed” that the first October Special is a Medical Intuitive Session sale to help support people getting over that healing hump.

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 treatment, but rather to empower your healing via whatever modality you ultimately choose.) Medical Intuitive Readings are normally $175 per hour or $90 per half hour.

Medical Intuitive sessions purchased today through 11/30/14, will be discounted to $77 (13% off) per half hour, which can be doubled or tripled for longer sessions.

Intuitive Preparedness Check-In

This is a brand new offering based on many comments, questions and private emails requesting my take on the question “What can I do right now?” — for specific individuals, rather than general guidelines and suggestions. With so many people feeling the structures and safety nets of the old world slip away, clients, friends and blog readers continue to voice concerns that preparedness strategies seem too overwhelming even to contemplate, let alone implement.

This hour session gives you access to my own intuitive scan of what areas of focus will provide you the greatest payback and sense of abundance, peace and security, with the least amount of resistance. Those looking to make larger lifestyle shifts can ask me to scan various lifestyle, location and/or community options to see which ones fit best with your vibration and heart’s desires. You can also use our time together to discuss energetic/magickal protection and manifestation tools and techniques, along with troubleshooting your most pressing concerns in various areas of life, including finances, food security, faith/spirituality/soul nurturing, relationships and/or land.

I feel so strongly about helping people take steps from fear, denial and overwhelm into abundance, joy and freedom, that I’m keeping this pricing a simple $123. As Tolkien said, “Little by little, one travels far.”

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

EVENTS:

Reiki Certification Classes now forming for Goshen, Indiana. Please contact me for details and to let me know what level you’d like to take. I also frequently teach the Master Teacher Level Certification Classes as a correspondence course.

I’m also putting out feelers for teaching a Faery Workshop in Goshen, since a number of people keep asking questions about my Fae friends. If you have interest in faeries, elementals and/or Nature Spirits, please contact me to express interest or get on a wait list for a possible class.
