Mercury Retrograde and the June Special

Just a little reminder that Mercury went Retrograde on June 26, 2013 and will remain Rx until July 20th. With all the intense astrological alignments in the past year, Merc Rx seems to pale in comparison; however, those of you struggling with communications, delays, mix-ups and technological snafu’s might want to read a little refresher here.

That older post gives tips for utilizing the positive aspects of Mercury Retrograde in order to finish up old business or creative projects, release that which no longer serves and go inside yourself rather than focusing on “the new.” In light of this enhanced inner and releasing energy through July 20, I wanted to remind everyone that June’s Special ends tomorrow (the 30th) at 11:59 p.m. East Coast US time. The Shadow Work Tarot fits especially well with the energies and alignments of this particular Merc Rx. Wishing you each a transformational and freeing next few weeks!

JUNE 2013 SPECIAL

With all the public revelations happening right now, I’m getting a strong sense we need much more Shadow Work in our world, hence the focus on just one Special this month.

Shadow Work Tarot to Heal Karmic Ties
(can also be used by Healers, Counselors, Coaches and Lightworkers to discover how you can best help others to empower themselves through Shadow Work)

This one-hour phone or in-person reading features my interpretation of a special Tarot spread, combined with my ability to tune in to multiple past lives and the patterns they create. I’ve offered Shadow Work Tarot specials before, but this one can be a little different. It can be used on the personal level, but it can also be for healers, Lightworkers, counselors, or spiritual workers to find ways of helping others bring their Shadow into the Light. Different people have different gifts and skills, so this reading can highlight where best to focus your efforts as a healer in order to affect not only your own life but also the world via ripple effect. The cards never lie, and they help us to get in touch with Archetypes that structure our reality. Using the Major Arcana to understand our Shadow –including those lifetimes for which we may still be punishing ourselves or others — allows us to integrate that Shadow and ultimately release it into the Light.

You may purchase it at any time on or before June 30. 2013, but you do not need to schedule it prior to the 30th. That said, given the energies on this planet right now, my guides suggest sooner rather than later, as the more people address their Shadow side, the more active Lightworkers we have holding a positive vibration for the coming transitions. $111 for the hour. Please contact me to sign up.

Reading Roulette: Make of It What You Love and Will

“Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.” ~Carl Jung

“True love comes from the joining of two polar energies to create a third force or consciousness. It is an interchange of energy and passion, not the surrender or domination of either but a voluntary exchange of willpower and respect. We must learn to embrace and befriend all the states of our personality, male and female, light and the dark, to be truly whole. This process allows the natural flow of the cycle of seasons within our own persona. If we fail to welcome all the archetypes into our own house, they become disowned and troublesome, like mental poltergeists gently tapping on the window, seeking to be acknowledged. …

“To truly love, we must be truly whole. We must accept every aspect of our individual personality as well as accepting this same wholeness in another person. The polarity may vary from day to day, moment to moment, but the truly whole person has seen all the fractured elements of their own personality and can deal with them in another. The joy of union is seamless and easy. Love is its own reward.” ~ Mark Ryan and John Matthews (from “The Forest Lovers” card in The Wildwood Tarot.)

“White magic is poetry and black magic is anything that works.” ~Victor Anderson

“He who cannot blast cannot bless.” ~Gwydion Pendderwen

“There will be times when we become alerted to an issue and experience an inner call to respond. Choosing to respond to that call empowers us. Once we take that first step, we start on a journey presenting us with situations that increase our capacity to respond. Strengths such as courage, determination, and creativity are drawn forth from us most when we rise to the challenges that evoke them. When we share our cause with others, allies appear; synergy occurs. And when we act for causes larger than ourselves, the larger community for whom we do this will be acting through us.

“We can experience our call to action in many different ways. Sometimes the uncomfortable discrepancy of realizing that our behavior is out of step with our values motivates us. Our conscience calls, and when we step into integrity, more of who we are heads in the same direction. At other times our call is more of a powerful summoning. We just know, even if we’re not sure how, that we need to be somewhere, do something, or contact a particular person.” ~ Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone, “Active Hope,” p. 116

“As we become friendlier toward bedrock reality, that reality itself appears more and more as a true guide, ever presenting opportunities for initiation. Unadorned reality gives us our best instruction on the path.” ~ David Richio, “The Power of Coincidence,” p. 136

“The Ancestor greets you as you walk up the path that leads to the forest. She is a creature of myth, half-animal, half-human, but carries the wand of wisdom and the drum that summons all who can hear to gather and watch the sun rise. The Ancestor is blessed by the land, and by the divine knowledge that flows from the stars. Her coat is of white winter fur and evergreen leaves.

“The gateway formed by the silver birch trees either side of the path marks the beginning of a new commitment and a point from which you cannot turn back. The trees act as a reminder to follow the path and know you are on a journey with a beginning and an end. …

“The Ancestor is linked to the part of our soul that is most ancient and most closely related to the archetypes that represent nature. She is a guardian of the sacred heart of the land and summons you by beating the drum to the heartbeat of the Earth. It is the part of you that unconsciously heard the drum and stirred the first desire to walk the path that is at work here. It is the overpowering strength and patience of nature, it is the awesome and relentless turning of the cycle that brings spring and warmth, an end to hibernation and the reawakening of abundant life.” ~ Mark Ryan and John Matthews, from “The Ancestor” card of The Wildwood Tarot.

“Fairy-tale motifs are not neurotic symptoms, something one is better off understanding rationally so that one can rid oneself of them. Such motifs are experienced as wondrous because the child feels understood and appreciated deep down in his feelings, hopes, and anxieties, without these all having to be dragged up and investigated in the harsh light of a rationality that is still beyond him.” ~ Bruno Bettelheim, The Uses of Enchantment

“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” ~Carl Jung

Shadow Work Tarot, Karmic Ties and Spirit Guides: November Specials

I’ve been awaiting inspiration for a November Special. Although a few ideas crossed my mind, none of them grabbed me as “the real deal,” so I just trusted that the offers would reveal themselves at the proper time. Meanwhile, I kept hearing the message to do my own inner work and then take note of my most valuable keys to healing. Those would then become November’s offering.

As regular readers of my blog know, I have also been conducting The Forgiveness Experiment, which includes radically forgiving myself and others. I say radically because I don’t normally hold a grudge — at least not on a conscious level. Since my freshman year of college way back in 1991, I recognized the power and necessity of forgiving others to free oneself. To the best of my conscious ability I continued to practice that on a regular basis. The Forgiveness Experiment involves something deeper. I felt called to release any and all attachments, judgments, fears, complaints, and misperceptions. On a conscious level, I didn’t even know what some of these were; however, some uncharacteristically stuck areas of my life indicated I must have some such resistance running in the background.

I surrendered and released the situations to the angels and gave them permission to engage whatever and however would produce results. In a year of mega-healing, this past week stands out as especially fast and deep. My biggest tools have been past life awareness, inner shadow work, and an even closer working relationship with my guides. I always connect with them for sessions and throughout the day, but this week I feel their constant companionship and support. It makes such a difference!

I awoke this morning with an inner knowing about some unique November offerings:

Shadow Work Tarot to Heal Karmic Ties

This one hour phone or in-person reading features my interpretation of a special tarot spread, combined with my ability to tune in to multiple past lives and the patterns they create. I’ve received such positive feedback regarding each of these services, but I had never thought to unite them in a single reading. Having received the idea, though, I immediately recognized its power. The cards never lie, and they help us to get in touch with archetypes that structure our reality. Using the Major Arcana to understand our shadow side –including those lifetimes for which we may still be punishing ourselves or others — allows us to integrate that shadow and ultimately release it into the light.

I was told to offer this special from today, 11/8/11 through 11/30/11. You may purchase it at any time during that window, but you do not need to schedule it prior to the 30th. That said, given the energies on this planet right now, my guides suggest sooner rather than later, as the more people address their shadow side, the more active Lightworkers we have holding a positive vibration for the coming transitions. $111 for the hour. Please email me for an invoice and to schedule. brunoleaf at yahoo dot com

$77 Spirit Guide Readings

This half hour reading may also be double booked as a single hour long discussion. We all have Spirit Guides and invisible support systems, but not everyone knows who these are. I’ve also noticed the need for discernment to make sure that whoever you’re asking for help has the Highest Good of All in mind. I sometimes find people have accepted tricksters or malevolent entities as “guides,” not unlike the way a narcissist will create “problems” just so s/he can “save” the person and create a sense of obligation. These false guides can then drain energy, cause confusion, and separate the person from their natural connection to Pure Source Energy. More often, I notice that clients feel they need to take quantum leaps of faith all alone. They might quasi-trust the Universe to support them, but they long for a more intimate relationship with real helpers.

A person’s Spirit Guides often turn out to be the main nudge for someone booking a reading with me, but I’ve never offered a separate service just to help people identify and connect more deeply with their guides. These may include angels, devas, faeries, leprechauns, animal spirits, Ancestors, or phenomena like rainbows. You won’t learn every single guide in a half hour or hour discussion, but you will learn (or have affirmed) the ones most appropriate for your current challenges, as well as the ones who’ve taken a special interest in you throughout your lifetime(s).

This offer runs from today, 11/8/11 through the end of November. As long as you prepay by 11/30/11, you may schedule anytime after you’ve paid. Your guides will give you a sense of what feels right in terms of timing. Again, please email me for scheduling and an invoice. brunoleaf at yahoo dot com.

Since I have many international clients, please do include your time zone/location and any preferred time/date windows when you query. That saves a few steps! Many Blessings, Much Love and Peace to you!
