               Please call Laurel @ 805.760.8399

As of November of 2010, Laurel is utilizing the subtle, yet profound opportunities of plant based medicines in her intuitive counseling sessions, in the form of "Organic Plant Hydrosols". Hydrosols are a very special essence of plant medicine, released during the distillation process of the plant.  They are useful in encouraging the soul/psyche to unlock on a deeper level.  Utilizing hydrosols for deep healing is simply amazing, not to mention immensely delightful and without any doubt it is pure life energy magic.

Come experience this expansion of self for yourself ...

                               ~ DEEP BREATH SESSION ~

We  underestimate our sacred life force and we take the most important function in sustaining that life force for granted, that function is breathing.  Shallow breath creates a shallow life and deep breath creates a deep life. How do you live? Are you living a shallow existence or are you living a deep life experience? How do you breathe? This answers determines a lot.

Come for a “Deep Breath Session” and find the power that you have in the simple and natural act of breathing. This session is gently guided by Laurel and supported by the securing energy of Reiki, enhanced by specially blended essential oils, the blend is called "Breath of Life", to encourage full, deep breath.

           ~ a very sacred union ceremony lasting all day long ~
                                       Higher Self w/ Grace


I may always leave this day posted here as it was by far one of the most profoundly powerful days of my life. An "OM" frequency meditation and sacred business meeting @ 11:11 a.m., with my two beloved Goddess Sisters Allison (Allee) Stillman and Colleen Dillon Parkman.  Allee and I then assisted her Aunt in leaving her earth body to move on to her spiritual rebirth light body.  We then joined the massively, awakened and vibrationally shaken Nassim Haramein for the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.  The LOVE VIBE TRIBE @ the "11-11 Singularity @ Elevate" gathering was indescribably delicious.  Long list of LOVE (no past tense) ONE's, with the surprise visit from Here II Here and MORE.  A group SACRED "OM" to "the all that is no thing" at 11:11 p.m..

I thank many and all, and the majestic powers that be, that be in my life.


                  I am one, with the ones that are one with THE ONE!                                       LOVE ! LOVE ! LOVE ! LOVE !

                                    "Shadow Casting Ceremony"
                            Wednesday December 15th @ 7:00 - 10:00 p.m.

From Laurel ... December 1st

Source keeps calling me to this task ... as a nudge, a pull, a calling in the center of my being.  I have been told to "work the shadows out" (again) ... "bring together the Shadow Warriors" (always)... "create circle to call to the light" (gladly) ... "find the time" (reeeeally ???) ... "work the magic" (yippie !!!) ... "trust the timing, the process, the way" (with gratitude). Today I heard "set the date and do the "Sacred Shadow Casting Ceremony"". OK !

Just to add to this, I am in a full de ja vu while typing this invitation out so this is "IN" already.

When I hear Source call me this many times, even in my current busy schedule I make time. Wednesday, December 15th from 7:00 to 10:00 I will be hosting a "SACRED SHADOW CASTING CEREMONY" in my home. I have been instructed to allow the flow of this, as Source will be present and will guide the evening through me, through each of you ... through the Divine Intention. 

For a bit of mystery-less-ness ... we will be clearing a SHADOW PIECE from the psyche/soul for healing, greater clarity and PEACE as we go into the amazing SOURCE MAGIC of the Winter Season.  For those of you who have participated in the "Shadow Warrior" circles in the past ... this ceremony will not be the same, however it will host some of the same potential, possibilities and probabilities ... promises from SOURCE of HEALING-PURIFICATION/LIGHT/LOVE.

This has the feeling of GRACE already ... if you are called, let me know as soon as possible. I will cap this ceremony at 20. We will gather in the newly established comfort zone of the "Sacred Say-Crib" here in my home. $11, $22 or $33 <3 LOVE OFFERING 8> would be appreciated, you choose.

RSVP is required and 20 folks in ceremony is 20 folks in ceremony.

Call Laurel directly @ 805.760.8399 ... and don't forget to LOVE.

  WE LOVE POSTING THIS ... Burning Bowl Ceremony on January 1st
                        ~what time? ... call Laurel to find out please ~

Burning Bowl Ceremony is held as an annual event on January 1st, New Year's Day of the Gregorian calendar.  It supports the way of releasing "things" that no longer serves us, then calling in "things" that will serve our highest good. This ceremony honors the right of passage into a new day and a new way. Burning Bowl Ceremony supports change. This ceremony offers a sacred space between the worlds and a pause in what we call time. It gives the participants a view of how they are living their lives. It creates a peaceful place for the release of the past. This ceremony secures and sets the beautiful boundaries to move forward with honor and integrity. It reconnects you to a vital awareness of how to live a better life as you continue on.

If you are experiencing change in your life, if you want to create change in your life, be it outside of your ways, be it of your ways or even from others around you and their ways ... consider Burning Bowl Ceremony. Ceremony is good medicine, good medicine that heals.

This ceremony will be limited to 22 participant and it will fill up fast.
RSVP in the form of a phone call confirmation to Laurel is required as soon as you know you are attending please. Laurel requests this, as she devotes a great deal of intention in setting the energy and the sacred space for this ceremony. 

We will be sharing a well planned and heart set feast mid day, so be ready to lovingly prepare and share a fine food, beverage and or both that day.  Keep in mind the word "feast" ... as this feast if part of the ceremony. 

Laurel is always looking forward to Burning Bowl, calling in the energy weeks/months in advance. For those of you who participated in January of 2010, your letters will be mailed to you on Winter Solstice.  You are more than welcome to return again this year and we hope that you do.

A suggested donation or *<8 love offering 8>* of $22 - $44 dollars (cash) is appreciated to support the time and effort of this ceremony, however nobody will be turned away for offering less for for not being able to pay. If you are unable to offer a financial love offering, please honor yourselves and your ability to be abundant and bring something to offer the host, fresh fruits or veggies, healthy baked goods, a plant, a box of tea ... something from the heart.  The universe loves balance.



                  ... CHANGE IS GOOD ...

New Moon Intention Setting Circle #32, was all about change.  The change was about supporting the highest good as always and the change is this ... we will continue to gather at the New Moon but intention setting is over.  The information to support this change is that setting an intention blocks the availability of the greater flow of simply receiving.  Focusing on an intention causes natural flow to cease, to host the energy for a single desire closes the potential for infinite probabilities. 

That said ... confusing ... or what ... ?

We will gather to get down to this for greater understanding.

32 New Moon INTENTION SETTING CIRCLES have been really good. Thank you ALL for participating. 

We will see you in 2011 ... with BELLS ON.

and now ... what to call the new circles?

                                            NEW MOON CIRCLE
            
                             Tuesday, January 4th @ 7:00 - 9:00 pm


We
will gather in circle together,  bringing in our higher selves to align with our highest good with GRATITUDE set in our hearts.  It's all new. We will be in the splendor, magic, serenity of winter. It is so important that we live by the sun and the moon, the seasons and the sacred ways.

             RSVP is required as soon as you know you are attending please.

We request a *<8 love offering 8>* of $11 - $22 dollars (cash) to support the time and effort of this gathering, however nobody will be turned away for not being able to pay.
