Elen of the Ways and the 4th of July

The day before American Independence Day seems an appropriate day to repost Door Number 17: Elen of the Ways. This afternoon brought a lovely synchronicity train of events leading me right back to this post and the door’s ongoing reminders of support. I already reblogged the original portal door entry once before, but here’s the link again. As we face down the “Agenda’s” in our own neighborhood, protecting our trees and our own sovereignty, it occurs to me that others may be feeling similar dynamics in their own lives — whether internal or manifested in the world “outside.”

Lately, I’ve found such powerful support for people saying “no” to any kind of abuse or manipulation. I’ve seen people formerly sucked dry by energy vampires regain their strength and glorious energy. As Rumi says, “There is a way. I have traveled it thousands of times.”

Blessed Be … and be the blessing.

Laura Bruno’s Blog

As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, there have been times in my life when I’ve faced problems so tricky, so “impossible” that the only way out was in. Deeeeeep inside, through the inner rabbit hole, through the spiral and out the newly created portal. In those days, I’d paint a door, and you know what? It worked.

For the past three “doors,” I’ve taken to canvases that portray some sort of doorway or entry point — still portals, but not painted on actual doors. I usually select a local or personal issue as the initial point of need or emotional spark, but then I create the portals as offerings for how such issues play out across the world. “As Within, So Without,” and “As Above, So Below.” I’ve painted portals for healing Lyme Disease, for welcoming a return of the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine

Summer Solstice, Astrology and Earth Changes

Happy Summer Solstice to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere! (And Happy Winter Solstice to my readers in the Southern Hemisphere!) May the light of clarity continue to dawn and shine, both inside and outside ourselves. I’ve noticed clarity as a major theme in recent sessions, so I thought I’d make a special post about some upcoming space alignments, along with an update on Uranus in Taurus.

Even if you don’t believe in astrology, the following video shares physical Earth effects of a very rare planetary alignment we’ll experience from July 19th-early September. The lead-up has begun, with all the gas giants already on one side of the Sun. As the creator of this video documents, “June 20, 2018: Over the past 125 years the earth has only been in this cosmic planetary position 6 times, during each of those six times some historic events occurred on the planet with regard to volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. https://www.mrmbb333.com

I include the video not to generate fear but as background to the individual and collective astrological effects/observations I note below the video. As Above, So Below. As Within, So Without. Everything connects. Whether or not we recognize those connections, they still affect us:

On May 9, 2018, I posted “Uranus in Taurus: What I’m Noticing So Far,” because sessions indicated people already feeling the effects of Uranus shifting from Aries to Taurus on May 15th. Things continue to heat up on the collective level and especially for anyone whose natal chart receives exact aspects with Uranus in early Taurus. You are much more than your Sun sign, so even non-Taureans can experience huge lightning (aka “lightening”) strikes from the rebel liberator, cosmic weirdo Uranus. Continue reading

Comment Bump Up and Response

Today’s post comes from a comment left on Friday’s re-blog of “Crossing our own boundaries: consent in the wake of ‘me too.'” I decided to turn the comment and reply into its own post, because this past weekend brought a wave of urgent requests from people for help freeing themselves from relationships with suspected and/or professionally diagnosed cluster-B personality disordered people, energy vampires, and/or black magic. These topics run close to the side issues in “Crossing our own boundaries,” as similar encounters early in life tend to prime someone for these kinds of relationships later in life.

This happens especially often to Empaths, and learning to discern patterns and reclaim sovereignty forms some of the most important healing we will ever do — as individuals and for our broken society. In the biggest picture, yes, All is Love, but at the level of PTSD in body, emotions, mind, soul and spirit, things can take longer to untangle and heal. Here’s the comment, followed by my response: Continue reading

Notes and Quotes

Left as my comment on “Fruit Loops and Perilous Pitfalls”:

Good post! Yes, judge a tree by its fruits … or, as my beloved loves to say while suppressing a giggle and patting my hand, “We need the eggs, dear.”

(in reference to the joke):

“My brother thinks he’s a chicken.”

“What?! That’s terrible. Why don’t you get him some psychiatric help?”

“We need the eggs.”

Humans are capable of so much more than most people realize. Go with what works. If it’s not empowering and it makes you feel puny, scared, isolated, derailed and victimized, then reach for something beyond that “truth.” It’s there for the embracing. Unconditional Love heals all wounds — but sometimes that Love comes in the form of Mama Bear protecting her tender cubs. Sometimes Love comes in the form of silliness and giggles. And sometimes Love says, “Whoa, the Mystery is so amazing and so mysterious. Thank Goddess there’s something bigger than my little pea brain and its malfunctioning tape measure.”

Perhaps Joni said it best: “We are stardust, we are golden, and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden.” Peace!

Setting the record straight, beginning with a partial comment bump up from “Happy Halloween.” You can read the rest of the string by clicking here:

Hi Doreen, just checked out the link. Please see my comment to Cindy. Not all pagans or witches are Satanists. In fact, very, very few are. If you’ve not read John Lamb Lash’s “Not in His Image,” I definitely recommend it, along with Monica Sjoo and Barbara Mor’s “Great Cosmic Mother.” It has taken centuries to divorce people so far from the land and from the Mother Goddess energies that these things are now demonized as the male “diety” thought form invented by Christians and known as “Satan.” It’s the psyop of all psyops how the Luce Sophia (the organic light of Wisdom) was completely bastardized and turned into a patriarchal Luciferianism focused on destruction, decay and transhumanism. The synthetic instead of the organic. True paganism honors the Mother in all Her organic forms as Nature births and rebirths in all Her beauty and abundance. Seriously, if you’ve not read those two books, they’ll blow your mind. 😊

Very cute Laura! I was a wizard. Great minds think alike. 😊 I celebrate Samhain too. Everything bad about paganism was invented by the church, to scare people from even looking at it. Just like Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel were created to scare people from leaving towns, cities and villages. Pagans were out there and we wouldn’t want you to know the truth. Besides people are easier controlled in towns and cities.

Posted by laurabruno on November 2, 2015 at 12:13 pm  edit

So true, James. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Agenda 21 mega-cities anyone? How about demonizing anyone who loves Nature or calling organic food lovers “eco-terrorists”? Sheesh. My friend, Tim, just sent this link: http://endofcapitalism.com/2009/11/05/who-were-the-witches-patriarchal-terror-and-the-creation-of-capitalism/ Reading that, one sees some parallels to today, including why it’s worthy of people like George Soros to bankroll the Muslim invasion of Europe. Divine Feminine the key to overturning the patriarchal mess destroying the world? What better way to subvert that than bring in millions of young men trained in Sharia Law in which women are good for raping and not much else? Apparently, the King Prince of Saud’s going to bankroll another $32 million towards bringing Sharia Law to the US. [Arab Bill Gates Could Turn Sharia Creep into Full Trot] Time for the witches and wizards to draw increasingly wider sacred circles! The Great She is rising. She (hopefully) learned Her lesson from the Middle Ages and won’t be stopped this time.

***

If in your politically correct naivety, you don’t understand how Sharia Law oppresses women and children in ways even beyond the psychopathic Medieval Witch persecutions, please peruse this link. If you don’t yet recognize the correlation of a re-emerging Divine Feminine and Earth healing and reclamation, and/or you’ve not read Sharon Blackie’s recent post, please do: “Marrying the land: how we broke the ancient bargain.” Sovereignty, the land and the Goddess go hand in hand in hand.

A Warning About Chaotic Nodes

On October 31, 2014, I posted a message from Tom Kenyon and the Hathors regarding the extreme Chaotic Nodes (plural) and the dismantling of 3D reality at that time and set to accelerate. I repeat part of their message again here:

At this fork in the road, one path leads to self-destruction, madness, despair and hopelessness while the other fork leads to a deeper connection with your interdimensional or spiritual nature. It is this fork in the road we wish to explore.

It is not an either/or proposition. Many of you who possess a transcendent and interdimensional or spiritual sense of yourself may find yourselves, from time-to-time, on the path to madness and self-destruction in spite of your self-knowledge.

This is because your 3-D reality is oscillating. And the rapid changes in your third-dimensional existence are accelerating at a faster rate than your biological organism might be capable of handling. The extreme stresses upon your biological nature must be dealt with if you wish to avoid the path to madness and self-destruction.

In its simplest terms the requirement to successfully make this passage through the escalation of Chaotic Nodes is deep authentic contact with your interdimensional or spiritual nature and the self-renewal that arises from such contact.

This bears repeating with special emphasis: “In its simplest terms the requirement to successfully make this passage through the escalation of Chaotic Nodes is deep authentic contact with your interdimensional or spiritual nature and the self-renewal that arises from such contact.” As Tom and the Hathors note, this is not a time for shallow, fluffy spirituality or for ignoring the needs of the physical body — unless you want to check out of this dimension via physical means, i.e. death, which remains a viable option. Human beings in their fullest potential bring forth the spiritual into the material realm. This process requires alchemy, skill and presence. It also involves nourishing the body and maintaining sovereignty over it.

I can’t believe I need to be this direct, but please, especially at this time, go deep inside and use discernment before giving away your power to anyone, especially channeled entities. Yes, Tom channeled the Hathors for his message, but as an experienced channel, he also knows when to channel and when not to do so. I recently had a friend contact me about some insistent advice she kept receiving from a “newer channel” and from a channel whose entities refused to identify themselves when asked. She had had a severe physical reaction to the insistent advice, which had been presented to her without caveat and with the assertion that not following this advice in a previous lifetime had resulted in her death. Pretty heavy handed advice, backed by threat of death for not following it!

Here’s the clincher, though: the advice itself could have killed her. Not surprisingly, the reason she contacted me was because she was having a severe “detox” reaction while trying even half the demanded protocol. When I read the dosages and “prescription,” I almost blew a gasket. I don’t like criticizing others’ work, but the ordered amounts were enough to cause a potentially fatal reaction in someone not being monitored by someone skilled at facilitating a major detoxification program — which for this speed would normally have included colonics, skin brushing and bloodwork by a medical doctor or naturopath. Certainly not something just to chug down again after repeat vomiting! Even though my friend felt herself resisting the persistent advice, and even though her body completely rejected it, she continued to push through the protocol because it came from a channel.

I’m sharing this extreme story here as a warning and a reminder: not all channeled material is valid. Even “clear channels” can run into interference during Chaotic Nodes, or worse, through deliberate on- and off-world manipulation. An entity refusing to identify itself presents a huge red flag. Even with supposed identification, each channeled message should still be run through one’s own internal disinformation detector. Does this sound like the supposed entity? Does the message resonate? Does it encourage or undermine your sovereignty? Would following the advice put your physical body in danger of destruction? Life extends beyond 3D reality, but it should be obvious by now that not every person, government or entity wishes your physical body to continue. Please use discernment! When in doubt, go inside yourself and outside in Nature. Literally, hug a tree. Sit by the tree. Earth is making her transition. Aligning with the planet itself provides your best chance of moving forward in body, since your body is of the Earth.

In the past two weeks, at least two well-respected astrologers have completely botched their reports. We’re not talking small omissions. We’re talking getting Solstice on the wrong day or looking at the wrong year for an interpretation of this year’s energies. Everyone makes mistakes, and both quickly corrected theirs when readers brought the errors to light. The curious thing, though, is that the original messages, which contained the errors, presented the material as certain, definitive and accurate. The only people who caught the mistakes happened to possess better than average astrology and research skills themselves. Most people who read the widely distributed reports would have just swallowed the material as “truth” from the expert, and not everyone received a mailed out retraction. Earlier, uncorrected reposts of the original messages still exist online.

I share this not to crack on two well-respected astrologers, who shall remain nameless in this report, just like the channelers. I share these stories in order to illustrate that Tom Kenyon and the Hathors are right: we are in extremely Chaotic Nodes during this dismantling of 3D reality. Proceed with caution. Ground yourself. Go into your heart, but also remember to connect with your body. As part of Earth, your body provides excellent guidance for you right now.

In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a war on for planet Earth. Terra-forming via radiation, pollution and chemtrails benefits someone, and it’s not humanity. Please keep that in mind when considering advice from off-world beings. Those in power right now are not working for the benefit of humanity, and they possess technology capable of messing with disembodied “spiritual” connections. Whether you believe it or not, there’s a war on for your soul, and your soul is intimately connected with your body. Humanity can bypass this interference by turning inside to reconnect with the heart and turning outside to reconnect to Nature — multiple times per day, not just once a week or month.

Aligning yourself during Chaotic Nodes requires ongoing vigilance, not a one time declaration.

We live in times of glorious potential. Just as the Chaotic Nodes offer WW3 and all sorts of opportunities for people to turn against each other, we find stories of blacks and whites joining in solidarity, of white Australians saying “I’ll ride with you” to Muslims who feel unsafe due to potential retaliation for the “Iranian” attack in Sydney. We have people from India tweeting to families in Pakistan that grief transcends nationality, that they love their neighbors and grieve with them for their murdered children. Wherever we look, we can find such stories, but they all have one thing in common: people coming from their hearts to connect with the very human experiences of their fellow humans. These are not disembodied platitudes. They are hands and hearts reaching across divides so that we can all strengthen each other as we face these challenging times.

“Become wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”

Blessed Be, and be the blessing!

Iceland !!! Thanks to R.

Thanks to Jean for posting these gorgeous photos! Is it any wonder so many people in Iceland believe in elves and consult the elves before proceeding on building and road projects? Surrounded by such stunning beauty, it is easy to see why Icelanders remember to honor sovereignty of both land and soul.

Rumpelstiltskin

A little Halloween fun for you … and quite in line with recent themes on this blog — for those with eyes to see and ears to hear. 😉

Fairy Tales by the Brothers Grimm

Rumpelstiltskin

By the side of a wood, in a country a long way off, ran a fine stream of water; and upon the stream there stood a mill. The miller’s house was close by, and the miller, you must know, had a very beautiful daughter. She was, moreover, very shrewd and clever; and the miller was so proud of her, that he one day told the king of the land, who used to come and hunt in the wood, that his daughter could spin gold out of straw. Now this king was very fond of money; and when he heard the miller’s boast his greediness was raised, and he sent for the girl to be brought before him. Then he led her to a chamber in his palace where there was a great heap of straw, and gave her a spinning-wheel, and said, ’All this must be spun into gold before morning, as you love your life.’ It was in vain that the poor maiden said that it was only a silly boast of her father, for that she could do no such thing as spin straw into gold: the chamber door was locked, and she was left alone.

She sat down in one corner of the room, and began to bewail her hard fate; when on a sudden the door opened, and a droll-looking little man hobbled in, and said, ’Good morrow to you, my good lass; what are you weeping for?’ ’Alas!’ said she, ’I must spin this straw into gold, and I know not how.’ ’What will you give me,’ said the hobgoblin, ’to do it for you?’ ’My necklace,’ replied the maiden. He took her at her word, and sat himself down to the wheel, and whistled and sang:

’Round about, round about,
Lo and behold!
Reel away, reel away,
Straw into gold!’

And round about the wheel went merrily; the work was quickly done, and the straw was all spun into gold.

When the king came and saw this, he was greatly astonished and pleased; but his heart grew still more greedy of gain, and he shut up the poor miller’s daughter again with a fresh task. Then she knew not what to do, and sat down once more to weep; but the dwarf soon opened the door, and said, ’What will you give me to do your task?’ ’The ring on my finger,’ said she. So her little friend took the ring, and began to work at the wheel again, and whistled and sang:

’Round about, round about,
Lo and behold!
Reel away, reel away,
Straw into gold!’

till, long before morning, all was done again.

The king was greatly delighted to see all this glittering treasure; but still he had not enough: so he took the miller’s daughter to a yet larger heap, and said, ’All this must be spun tonight; and if it is, you shall be my queen.’ As soon as she was alone that dwarf came in, and said, ’What will you give me to spin gold for you this third time?’ ’I have nothing left,’ said she. ’Then say you will give me,’ said the little man, ’the first little child that you may have when you are queen.’ ’That may never be,’ thought the miller’s daughter: and as she knew no other way to get her task done, she said she would do what he asked. Round went the wheel again to the old song, and the manikin once more spun the heap into gold. The king came in the morning, and, finding all he wanted, was forced to keep his word; so he married the miller’s daughter, and she really became queen.

At the birth of her first little child she was very glad, and forgot the dwarf, and what she had said. But one day he came into her room, where she was sitting playing with her baby, and put her in mind of it. Then she grieved sorely at her misfortune, and said she would give him all the wealth of the kingdom if he would let her off, but in vain; till at last her tears softened him, and he said, ’I will give you three days’ grace, and if during that time you tell me my name, you shall keep your child.’

Now the queen lay awake all night, thinking of all the odd names that she had ever heard; and she sent messengers all over the land to find out new ones. The next day the little man came, and she began with TIMOTHY, ICHABOD, BENJAMIN, JEREMIAH, and all the names she could remember; but to all and each of them he said, ’Madam, that is not my name.’

The second day she began with all the comical names she could hear of, BANDY-LEGS, HUNCHBACK, CROOK-SHANKS, and so on; but the little gentleman still said to every one of them, ’Madam, that is not my name.’

The third day one of the messengers came back, and said, ’I have travelled two days without hearing of any other names; but yesterday, as I was climbing a high hill, among the trees of the forest where the fox and the hare bid each other good night, I saw a little hut; and before the hut burnt a fire; and round about the fire a funny little dwarf was dancing upon one leg, and singing:

’”Merrily the feast I’ll make.
Today I’ll brew, tomorrow bake;
Merrily I’ll dance and sing,
For next day will a stranger bring.
Little does my lady dream
Rumpelstiltskin is my name!”’

When the queen heard this she jumped for joy, and as soon as her little friend came she sat down upon her throne, and called all her court round to enjoy the fun; and the nurse stood by her side with the baby in her arms, as if it was quite ready to be given up. Then the little man began to chuckle at the thought of having the poor child, to take home with him to his hut in the woods; and he cried out, ’Now, lady, what is my name?’ ’Is it JOHN?’ asked she. ’No, madam!’ ’Is it TOM?’ ’No, madam!’ ’Is it JEMMY?’ ’It is not.’ ’Can your name be RUMPELSTILTSKIN?’ said the lady slyly. ’Some witch told you that!– some witch told you that!’ cried the little man, and dashed his right foot in a rage so deep into the floor, that he was forced to lay hold of it with both hands to pull it out.

Then he made the best of his way off, while the nurse laughed and the baby crowed; and all the court jeered at him for having had so much trouble for nothing, and said, ’We wish you a very good morning, and a merry feast, Mr RUMPLESTILTSKIN!’
