New Indoor Garden Fun

Last week, I spent time gathering and planting some cold hardy annuals outside, but it seemed time for an indoor garden expansion, too. These newbies are playing nice with the old timers, while bringing me great joy. When David returns tomorrow night from his two weeks away, he’ll have some new friends to greet:

We’ve had the spider plant for years, but the bright moss is new as of last week. Also new last week, a bonsai and little succulent trio for my writing desk:

This “Exotic Allusion Arrowhead” plant (above) arrived today, taking the place of a Spring Equinox addition called Dragon’s Tongue (below left), which will appreciate more light, next to its mystery companion that I hope also prefers medium light:

The fireplace room wanted more than just the new moss, and today brought Bromeliads (with the orange flower), in front of one of the snake plants from our “Signs, Ogham and Snake Plants” adventure last fall:

A new Codonanthe joined the snake plant on the other side:

The faeries are enjoying the new, greener surroundings of their houses:

David will attest that these are far from the only indoor plants, but these are the new ones, and it does feel good to green the inside even more.

And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a groundhog to attend to. He’s ba-a-a-ck! Actually, I’m not sure if it’s Kalamazoo Kal or another interloper. We shall see. I’m reminding him this is not the everyday yard — it’s the crazy adventure yard with, nope, no kale or other yummies besides dandelions……..

Medical Intuitive FAQ

This 2011 post wants to go up again.

Laura Bruno's Blog

Someone on Facebook asked me some questions about Medical Intuition, and I remembered I used to have an FAQ page listed on my website, before I consolidated things onto my blog. The question and answer on FB has now become the first in a series of questions. I’ll begin with my original post that triggered the questions:

Our bodies are soooo smart! It never ceases to amaze me how they can keep us alive, teach, translate the soul’s deepest longings, nudge us to grow and still manage to enjoy smells, music, tastes, visions and feelings. We live in sacred, breathing temples made of stardust and earth. Wonder-full!

I want to know how bodies translate our soul’s longing? Anyone know how this works physiologically?

This is the kind of work that I do every day: translating the soul’s messages to people via their body. I seem to have natural, heightened gifts…

Quick Reminders

Today, Monday, April 16th at 11:52 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (US, same as New York City) is the time of my 8-minute radio feature. Below you can find links to get you to the live broadcast on the day/time of my show. I don’t know exactly what we will discuss. I just followed synchronous guidance when the opportunity arose:

http://www.allbusinessmediafm.com/studio2 and
https://tunein.com/radio/All-Business-Media-Nationwide-s281640/

***

On a different note, we have two weeks left for April 2018 Specials. Just a heads up, I will not be extending either of these into May:

Given how many people are going through profound healing shifts right now, I feel led to continue the March 40-Minute Medical Intuitive Special through April 2018. April seems primarily focused on healing, with a Reiki Special, too:

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 4/30/18. Please contact me to sign up.

 

$77 Reiki Special

Save $8 off the usual rate for an hour of long distance Reiki, 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 such as feng shui, Tai Chi, Qigong, or yoga.

Thus, Reiki refers to “universal life force energy,” “divinely directed healing energy,” or “life energy of a spiritual nature,” with an emphasis on subtle energy fields rather than the physical body. By working on all the different levels, Reiki helps the body to relax into a state that allows optimal self-healing. Reiki can also empower and support intentions and events.

This session can be scheduled for a specific time delivery while you meditate or relax, or I can set the session for delivery while you’re in deep, receptive sleep. Depending on your needs, the hour can also get delivered during an important meeting, travel or other event.

Please contact me to sign up, and share (briefly) what you’d like to support, empower or heal. If you have specific timing in mind, please share that as well. $77 (instead of the usual $85) if prepaid on or before 4/30/18.

Monday, April 16, 2018 Live Radio Links

Towards the end of my “Loose Ends, Astrology and my NDE” post, I mentioned this upcoming 8-minute live radio segment opportunity that appeared the morning after I committed to staying here. I have no idea what to expect from this interview, but here are the links to the live broadcast. It will occur on Monday, April 16th at 11:52 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (US, same as New York City).  Below you can find links to get you to the live broadcast on the day/time of my show:

 http://www.allbusinessmediafm.com/studio2 and
https://tunein.com/radio/All-Business-Media-Nationwide-s281640/ and your broadcast can be heard live the day of your show. 

At some point, this broadcast may be archived, but I don’t know details about that yet. I just agreed to the 8-minute segment due to the uncanny synchronicity of me becoming aware of a relatively insistent opportunity right after my NDE in which I committed to finishing my books and allowing whatever visibility wanted to come my way. I hope you can join us on Monday.

Loose Ends, Astrology and My NDE

Since I’ve not blogged in over week, this is just a quick post to say I’m not dead, but I almost was. No need for alarm: I’ve had so many near death experiences, near lightning strikes, head injuries, and I spend so much time crossing the veil in both personal and professional life that even my mom commented, “Glad you survived that bad experience. Another chapter in your amazing life. <3”

IMG_1913

Been there, done that, Laura Bruno’s had another rebirth. This one was typically uncanny in terms of premonition dreams right before Easter, specifically noting one of my return flights to Kalamazoo from Bethlehem, PA. Life ended up orchestrating the perfect storm of circumstances in Detroit on my return. I won’t go into the details here, as they’re personal, except to say that looking at my astrological transit chart for that exact time range for me in Detroit makes it clear how that window could have opened.

Contrary to what people who’ve not had NDE’s tend to assume, it was not a bad experience. I’ve empathed so many people’s deaths, and in almost all cases, it’s a joyful expansion and release. I spend so much time on the other side of the veil either relaying messages to those left behind, helping to usher in new souls in my fertility work, or conversing with my “Otherworldly Bard/Muse.” I just usually don’t receive an invitation to remain. This time I did, as I have on other occasions, too.

One reason for so many NDE’s and veil crossing is the strength of Pluto (representing death, rebirth, sex (orgasm is “the little death”), subconscious forces, regeneration and renewal. My birth chart features an exact Grand Trine between my Sun, Moon and Pluto. I also have an 8th house (ruled by Pluto) Chiron (the wounded healer), directly opposing my natal Uranus (representing surprises, special spiritual gifts, telepathy, direct intuitive knowledge, revolutions, and what Timothy Glenn calls “The Cosmic Weirdo.”) Uranus also rules technology, but that Chiron opposition seems to make me break technology more often than the average person. Uranus is the “higher octave of Mercury,” who rules Gemini and Virgo, and I have a boat load of planets in Gemini, with a Virgo Ascendant.

All of which is to say that my natal chart predisposes me to lots of Pluto, Chiron, and Uranus combo experiences, with a bunch of trickster Mercury thrown into the mix. It makes for excellent healing and shamanic gifts, good storytelling skills, but also a ton of very weird experiences, including relatively frequent NDE’s. The chapter about me in Mike Clelland’s new book is the second longest in the book, yet it represents maybe 10% of what I shared with him. Keeping in mind that I’m a very private (Plutonian) person, you can also surmise that I only shared about 10% of my paranormal events with him.

Soooo, on Monday, April 9th between 7:50-8:15 or so, I almost died. Obviously, I opted to return, but this time, I was given a choice. It would have been terrible timing for David, and I have books to write. On this PA visit, I had tied up all loose ends with family, done all family members’ birth charts, as well as charts for each family member in town for my dad’s 2016 death, and charts for my mom and me at the time of the childhood events described in Mike’s book. I cannot overstate the amount of insight and peace these charts provided.

Prior to doing those charts, I had already done a forgiveness ceremony at my dad’s grave, a sequence of events and ceremony totally orchestrated by my Otherworldly Bard/Muse, but that’s a very long and very private story! David found it very amusing, though, because my “Bard is even trickier than Laura Bruno,” and knows how to outsmart me for my own healing. In any case, it was more Pluto/Chiron/Uranus stuff, along with a lot of Saturn (Lord of Time, patriarchy, taskmaster of the zodiac, associated with fathers — both the protector and the one who devours his own children).

In addition to that grave site ceremony, I also followed through on a promise I had made our friend Tim Martin before he passed in December 2017 — that next time I went to Bethlehem, I would make a pilgrimage to his favorite poet, H.D.’s grave, which is in Bethlehem. He had intended to go himself some day, but I said I’d pay his respects sooner since I got to Bethlehem most years. Finding H.D.’s grave took some legwork, but hat tip to Super Sleuth friend Mitch, who can find anything. He got me in touch with the Nisky Hill cemetery caretaker, Sally, who sent me a much appreciated map. I know this historic cemetery, as I used to wander it as a teenager; however, it’s large, and I was going there on a blustery, cold day with my 70+ year old mom.

We did find the grave, though, and I left the amethyst that the crossed over Tim selected for me to leave as an offering. You can find the amethyst below the “t” of September:

IMG_1918

Tim always insisted I read H.D.’s poetry, because he knew I’d love it. He was much better at reading things I requested he read than I was at following through on things like H.D. and Cloud Atlas. As preparation for this visit, I started reading her poetry — long resisted from having grown up in Bethlehem — only to find that, of course, I do love her “lived mythology.” I see why he ramped up his insistence while we were reading Dion Fortune’s “Goat Foot God,” all about Pan, as H.D. loved and lived her Greek mythology. She also loved thunderstorms like I do (partly why I’ve had the multiple near-lightening strikes) and was a total mystic who found divinity in Nature. My mom and I celebrated this pilgrimage with a lunch at Apollo Grill, which seemed apt.

I share all this to say that I had reached a profound point of clarity about not only my birth family and key moments in my life, but this followed a deep dive into the astrology of our dear friend Tim’s shocking (though expertly timed and magical) death. He remains highly communicative from beyond, but astrology has provided such deep context and clarity of larger themes and cosmic agreements. Visiting H.D.’s grave completed the unfinished tasks of that nature, so I left for my flight home having no loose ends other than my writing and the life that David and I have been gradually seeding and sprouting. The charts, grave site ceremonies, and many discussions with family members: karmically, I was done, which made for a wide open departure invitation.

I mentioned Saturn related to my father, but in addition to Pluto, Chiron, Mercury and Uranus, I also have a very strong Saturn in my chart. I’ve got North Node in Capricorn (ruled by Saturn) and Saturn in a packed 10th house (Saturn’s home). Those with Saturn in the 10th house often feel a strong sense of calling, of being forced onto a life path and into public life when they would prefer anonymity or behind the scenes work. But that sense of calling is very strong. On Monday, I felt the unfinished books, as well as the pull of the life David and I have set up together so that we can each fully expand our life paths.

Tempting as NDE’s always are for me, I mentally tuned into my 10th house Saturn, who hangs out with my Mercury, Venus and Sun, telling myself, “Go to your 10th house. That’s where your books are. You’re not finished your books yet.” That helped, but I needed something more to pull me out of that 8th (Pluto/death) house corridor. I tuned into Saturn in Capricorn — Saturn moved there on December 19th, 2017, Saturn’s home sign, so very strong. I asked Saturn in Capricorn to amp up the dedication to write my books, to live out the remainder of my destiny here on this side of the veil. That did the trick.

The amazing thing I discovered while analyzing the charts for that NDE time window is that Saturn in Capricorn is currently exactly conjunct my North Node destiny point! Of all the perfect things to pull me out of that 8th house exit corridor, Saturn in Capricorn would do it. I committed to more discipline in getting the books out and even to accepting help with marketing, which I normally loathe. At home, the next morning, I noticed two voicemails on my home business line, both from the same radio station, both inviting me to do an eight minute segment for “millions of listeners.”

Um. Yeah. Okay. So I’m committed on this side of the veil. Details on that another time. It costs me nothing, and they were most insistent to have me on their show talking about the “new direction” of my work and where I see myself going in the next few years.

That’s the scoop and why I haven’t blogged in over a week. As usual, there’s much more to the tale than I share here, but I only share what feels appropriate. I will say that I continue to marvel at how astrology gives my left brain “reasonable” explanations for and confirmation of what my intuition whispers, tickles or screams at me every day. It’s a great whole brain tool, and it will also serve as an excellent language translator for some of the more esoteric aspects of my metaphysics of Lyme book. Meanwhile …. back to sessions, research, inspiration and writing.

Peace in, peace out …. with a little Pluto-Chiron-Uranus-Saturn … and oh, yeah, Lilith … thrown in just to keep me on my toes!

Timothy Glenn ~ Global Metamorphosis 2018 Update

This is hands down one of my all time favorite articles from my friend, Timothy Glenn. I’m not into mandatory anything, but if I were, I would propose this article as mandatory reading.

You can find the original “Global Metamorphosis” article from 2008 for review by clicking here. I posted it in 2013, as Tim went through some old writings and found it eerily applicable to April 2013. I remember reading the first article he sent out in 2008, though, because in my own life, Pluto in Capricorn has been nothing short of a death and rebirth of, ohhhh, everything. Today’s post gives us a status report as Pluto continues to make its way through this sign. Ponder for a moment how much the world has shifted in the past decade — both personally and collectively. Kind of unbelievable, huh? Love ’em or hate ’em, Pluto and Saturn know how to evoke the changes.

Global Metamorphosis 2018 Update

Pluto two thirds of the way through Capricorn

by Timothy Glenn

From the original Global Metamorphosis article in 2008:

“As Pluto, the ruler of the underworld, grinds its way through Capricorn, it will tend to bring that which is hidden out into the public eye. Do you suppose we will see ‘leaks’ of information the Powers That Would Be would rather keep secret? Count on it. Watch for it. Get ready to do something about it.”

Each 30 degree sign of the zodiac is divided into 3 decans or decanates. Here in 2018, Pluto is crossing over 20 degrees of Capricorn, officially entering the third and final decanate. This means that Pluto is ready to finish warming up, so he can roll up his sleeves and get down to business. In Capricorn, Pluto’s business is to dismantle outmoded control systems, and then to begin replacing them with something more evolved.

Shifting GEARS

High on Pluto’s hit list, you will find Government, Economics, Academics, Religion and Science. These control systems have held power over humanity by concealing their true motives and agendas, while holding forth a façade of working for the “greater good”.

This is not meant to imply that there are not “good people” working within those control systems. It’s simply that the ordinary decent folk type humans hardly if ever get put in charge of anything significant, and are kept strictly compartmentalized. Many of them have no clue what they are actually supporting, and sincerely believe they are serving the “greater good”. Others merely bide their time, take notes, prepare documentation, and await their golden opportunity to become whistleblowers without having their lives destroyed by the old Powers That Would Be.

The Inspector General Gets Specific

Saturn (the solar system’s Inspector General) entered its home sign of Capricorn shortly before the Solstice in December of 2017. He will proceed up to 9 degrees and then retrograde back to 2 degrees, resuming direct motion in January of 2019.

As a result, Saturn will spend all of 2018 scouring the first decan of Capricorn, and laying the groundwork for restructuring…well, probably just about everything.

Saturn can be analogized to the guy who oversees the quality control department. He scrutinizes everything, makes his analysis, and then hands you the dreaded paperwork: “Here are your specifications. Reengineer these facets of the project. Then resubmit.” And in this scenario, he is addressing the entire human world.

Mars joined the party in Capricorn in mid March, adding a boost of energy to the planetary overhaul. On the day of this writing (April 2nd), Mars is overtaking Saturn. This conjunction brings enthusiasm and realism face to face, and the wise among us will purposefully focus our zeal with steady application, patience and perseverance.

Mars will breeze past retrograding Pluto on April 26. The power of this conjunction can be harnessed and directed, or it can be allowed (or caused) to explode into flames. Certainly the old world controlling creepazoids will resist the bulldozer of inevitability that is plowing them down in Capricorn.

Saturn will take the better part of 3 years to completely transit Capricorn, and will support Pluto’s efforts every step of the way. Perhaps the most fascinating episode of the adventure will occur around January 12th and 13th of 2020, as the Inspector General holds a public meeting with the King of the Underworld. Indeed, this upcoming Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn promises to jar even more of the unconscious masses out of their collective coma. The Sun and Mercury will “just happen” to be right there. The Sun will officiate, and Mercury will race ahead with the report.

Media Bypass

Overall, Pluto’s journey through Capricorn can be summarized as a Bible quote: “For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.” Luke 8:17

Pluto involves everything that is hidden, and his long sojourn through Capricorn will bring the Plutonian secrets out into the public arena.

At this stage of the game, there remains little if any sign that the corporate propaganda machine will soon offer to serve as a vehicle for helping the truth come to light. This tool of the controllers is often called the “mainstream media”, which implies that its audience comprises a majority of the population. However, it has lost so much of its illusory credibility and therefore such a noteworthy portion of its former audience that it no longer can rightfully claim the status of being mainstream.

And yet there are still millions of duped humans who believe they can turn to the television networks and their so-called “news” programs, and get more than a few glimmers of anything within a zillion lightyears of accurate and pertinent information. However, there was a Christian prophecy from 2011 that claimed this would happen…tapping our feet…drumming our fingers…we’re still waiting…but don’t hold your breath…

…and don’t hold your breath waiting for someone in formal wear and white gloves to hand you the truth on a silver platter centered on a red velvet cushion.

Seek and Ye Shall Find

About two thousand years ago, a famous Jewish Rabbi uttered the well known admonition: “Seek and ye shall find.” Seeking the truth entails a lot more than lamely saying, “Gosh, I wish I knew.”

It often happens that when you share some of your fact-based research with sleepers, they will ask: “How do you know?” My favorite response hearkens back (believe it or not) to a cute bit from 1970’s television (with slight variation): “No, Grasshopper. The question is: how is it you do not?”

The answer is simple. They have never genuinely sought. The truth is a treasure, and if you want to become a treasure hunter, you have to hunt. You can’t step outside your door, glance around and expect to see treasure lying around in your neighborhood. Truth seeking is a pro-active process. And in the famous quote, the verb “to seek” is rendered in the imperative tense. You want the truth? Then get your ass out there and search for it!

The Game Intensifies

Pluto the ruler of Scorpio carries more intensity than anything else in our zodiac. And the game of Pluto in Capricorn is amping up into a bit of a nail biter.

By all means, bypass the corporate media. If you’re reading this article, it’s probably because you have the internet at your fingertips. And for all of this tool’s usefulness, it is here in cyberspace that the game is being played out with gusto. Disinformation agents abound. Trolls, including those on government payrolls, infest the high traffic areas frequented by the truth seekers.

The corporate giants that own and operate the big platforms have been censoring more and more independent researchers and journalists. Websites and channels have been taken down. Pertinent facts have been scrubbed from the internet. Search algorithms have been altered to hide legitimate information from the truth seekers. For now, the tech giants can run, but they can’t hide. Pluto in Capricorn will root them out and expose their deeds and their hypocrisy.

Your Move

How do you want to play your part in the game?

Even those of us who have been researching these phenomena for decades are headed for some shocking revelations. We have been playing connect the dots; and just when a picture begins to emerge, we get hit by another barrage of dots. The rabbit hole keeps going deeper and deeper.

Proterrian says that we could spend an entire lifetime pursuing this as a full time job, pooling our data with hundreds of other researchers, and all we would achieve is “a scratch on the surface of the tip of the iceberg”. But at least we are prepared for the next wave of data to crash onto the shores of our awareness.

The global metamorphosis is accelerating. Anyone still resisting the truth may face the likelihood of eventually getting smacked up alongside the head with a cosmic sledge hammer. But no matter what our individual approach may be, we might all end up having our worldviews blasted to smithereens by cosmic reality bombs, or simply vaporized into nanoparticles by universal scalar truth weapons we haven’t even theorized about. Shifting from an infinitesimal fear-based matrix into the infinite love-based energy field might require a few illusions to get shattered.

Pluto will complete its passage over the two thirds mark in Capricorn in mid December. We have spent a decade reaching this milestone, and the game will only intensify from here.

Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn (with a little help from their friends) are suggesting that we up our game if we really want to play in the big leagues.

Your move.
