April 2013 Specials

Thanks for your patience waiting for the April Specials. I don’t run the Monthly Specials from a left-brain, linear standpoint; I post them as inspiration leads. This month, I’m actually feeling called to continue one of the March Specials — The Healing Skills Reclamation — because the readings with a past life healer “filter” brought forth such amazing synchronicities and information. They’ve truly been a joy to share, and clients share that the readings have provided peace, affirmation and exciting new directions. Apparently, there’s more of that wanting to burst forth in April. I have also included a different type of Tarot reading for April. This one just, literally as I type, came to me. Details below.

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. Half hour reading may be doubled for a full hour.

Offer valid if prepaid by 4/30/13. Please contact me to sign up.

Natural Reset Tarot

This unusual Tarot reading combines wisdom from three decks at once — Robin Wood, The Faery Wicca Tarot, and the Wildwood Tarot. In keeping with the integration energies so prevalent on 2013 planet Earth, this combo reading explores different ways that similar themes run throughout different areas of your lifetime(s) — past, present and possibly even parallel … relationships, career, creativity … physical, mental, emotional, spiritual.

The goal of this reading is to provide Archetypes, tools and themes to help you bring vague, abstract “senses” and “intuitions” into more tangible, actionable understanding. As humanity faces major evolutionary challenges, embodying and re-membering the ancient ways and latent powers can help bring those flickers of the new reality into more obvious physical manifestation. We simply don’t create on one level. Rather, we bring our visions, imaginations, inspirations, soul longings and innovations into Being. We invoke Archetypes and symbols without even realizing we’re doing so. Without REAL-izing we’re doing so. Creation bursts forth from the subconscious mind, and this Natural Reset Tarot helps to bring more of that subconscious mind under conscious influence –the best of both worlds as humanity continues its Awakening.

$55.55/half hour or $111/hour. This Special is valid if prepaid by 4/30/13. Please contact me to schedule.

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

Happy Twelfth Night to the Trees

I’ve always loved Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” so much so that I named my very first laptop Sebastian! I had heard of the Twelve Days of Christmas and what they represent, but I never knew the following information about wassailing the trees. For that matter, I never knew what wassailing was. 🙂 We don’t have any of our intended fruit trees planted yet, as we moved here in November, so I’m just dedicating today’s post to all the trees, near and far. Thank you for giving us oxygen, wisdom, beauty, shade, shelter, forests, fairy tales, wood, and nourishment for ourselves and the soil. Thank you for standing tall and silent among us, and thank you for whispering in the wind. Thank you for inspiring Ogham and Runes and for reminding us that our world is such a magical place!

The World Tree Card from the Wildwood Tarot

The World Tree Card from the Wildwood Tarot

David found this on yesterday’s Madison Permaculture Group’s email blast:

“From a friend, Genie Ogden:

“Tonight is 12th night Eve. The 6th of Jan. is 12th Night. This is from very old English book, published in 1907, that belonged to grandmother:

“‘Wassailing the Trees

“‘Twelfth Night Eve, or “Wassail Eve,” as it is sometimes called, is a rustic festival in England, and one of the customs observed was that of wassailing the trees to ensure their future fruitfulness.

“‘Wassail the trees, that they may beare
You many a plum, and many a peare;
For more or less fruits they will bring
As you do give them wassailing.’

“As late as the eighteenth century, it is stated that in certain parts of Devonshire “the farmer, attended by his workmen, with a large pitcher of cider, goes to the orchard on this evening: and there, encircling one of the best bearing trees, they drink the following toast three times:–

“‘Here’s to thee, old apple tree!
Whence thou mayst bud, and whence thou mayst blow!
And whence thou mayst bear apples enow!
Hats full! caps full!
Bushel, bushel — sacks full!
And my pockets full too! Huzza!’

“‘Some,’ it is added, ‘are so superstitious as to believe that if they neglect this custom the trees will bear no apples that year.'”

(Laura again: So … trees, I am one evening late, but hopefully this public service announcement will make up for that. Here’s to thee, old trees!)

One Week Left for October Specials

One more week for intuitive support + a Reiki Healing Attunement. The Intuitive Life Coaching Session + Attunement has been particularly popular and potent so far this month. In order to receive the special(s), purchase must occur by October 31st; however, sessions can be booked at a future date.

Enjoy!

OCTOBER SPECIALS

Whew! With all the intense energies floating around this month, I’m feeling called to mix things up a bit. This month’s specials offer extra healing support for people on the verge of making major changes. “On the verge” might mean, “already in process, but not quite manifested yet” … or it might mean, “just one affirmation away from your personal tipping point.” In either case, October’s Specials are designed to amplify your efforts and positive flow.

Intuitive Life Coaching Session + Reiki Healing Attunement

This Life Coaching Session draws upon all of my intuitive awareness — Medical Intuitive, Soul Readings, Intuitive Life Path Assessment, potential Past Life Factors, Archetypes — to help you gain clarity and confidence regarding the decision(s) at hand. Once we’ve discussed any potential roadblocks or timing issues, I will help you to craft your wish list and move into receiving mode. The Intuitive Life Coaching Session will last 1 hour. We will then set a time for you to relax on your own and receive your Reiki Healing Attunement** designed to empower your goals and maximum healing.

$188 (Save $42) Life Coaching Sessions are normally $175/hour, and a Healing Attunement is usually $55. This special package allows you to gain clarity and then add Universal Life Force Energy and Divinely directed healing energy to empower your hopes and dreams.

Offer valid if paid on or before Halloween 2012, although sessions may be scheduled after that time.

Wildwood Tarot Reading + Reiki Healing Attunement

The Wildwood Tarot combines traditional tarot cards with ancient wisdom of the deep forest. This half hour reading will provide a snapshot of the energies currently most influential in your aura (and life). With the Wildwood Tarot, these energies often bubble beneath the surface, urging us to return to our more natural, freer state as sovereign caretakers of Mother Earth. On this tarot journey, you might encounter the Green Man, the Blasted Oak, or whispers from Avalon, animals guides and trees.

The Wildwood Tarot reading will last for half an hour, and we will then arrange a time for you to receive a Reiki Healing Attunement** intended to help you integrate the energies most beneficial to you reclaiming the wild, free, natural Being you truly are.

$88 (Save $22.55) Offer valid if paid on or before October 31, 2012. Sessions may be scheduled later. These also make a nice gift for friends and family looking for support in their own transitions.

** Healing Attunements
The Reiki (pronounced RAY-key) Healing Attunement is a precise technology that opens the body’s energy channels (meridians and chakras), helping them to embrace the natural process of growth and healing. In addition to acute illness or injury, Reiki Healing Attunements are often used to empower goals or to help a person move beyond limiting patterns and resistance. In Reiki, the recipient always determines how much Reiki they receive and accept. A Healing Attunement allows the recipient’s Higher Self to take a more active role in recovery and goal achievement. Many people experience dramatic shifts following this type of attunement.
