Did you see Bohemian Rhapsody? I've been feeling nostalgic lately...I know the "good old days" are just an illusion, they weren't as "good" as our memories usually are, but this movie took me back~ back to my teen years, back to when life sure seemed simpler. Back to a time where music anthems, not chaos, were the foundation of our lives.
This movie also brought home the fragility of life, of our choices, and what we want to focus our emotional energy on for our remaining time here on Earth. Which brings me to:
After seeing this movie twice, I just caught a critic's review. Let's just say it was less than stellar.
And I began to think...
Who gave this person the right to judge someone's art? Thousands of people worked on that labor of love and a few sentences from him/her degraded it, and they were paid to criticize it!
Then I began to realize how much criticism exists that people are paid a living wage (or more) for: music, fashion, politics, books, food, paintings, film, theater...
We allowed this to happen. At some point, humanity said, "Go ahead and criticize each other. Make it very, very public. Your opinion matters. We'll even pay you to do it."
Look where that got us. Sometimes, too often, people even commit suicide over criticism.
And then we create #WorldKindnessDay to try to offset the human programming we have imposed upon ourselves.
It's not enough.
Let's start with us. Stop criticizing.
Stop criticizing your co-worker's fashion choices. Your sister's hair color. Your neighbor's choice in landscaping.
We say "our opinion matters" and it does. To us. But it doesn't matter to the rest of the world. When opinion becomes public criticism it becomes poisonous.
You only need to take a look at our nation to see where that's landed us.
So I'm asking you to go back to that kindergarten adage:
If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
And if any paid critics are reading this, please, do the world a favor and bite your tongue/pen. Say something nice instead, even if it's not your opinion.
Live in love,
Complicated times we live in, aren't they? Seems like everything is chaotic: elections, government, weather, healthcare, school security, job security, climate change....even purchasing lottery tickets is chaotic! There's a reason for this, and believe it or not, we have created this chaos.
But it's not for the reason you think. It's not an omen of the end of modern civilization. Not the apocalypse. Not a punishment for humanity.
It's our wake-up call and we created it for a reason.
Are you giving away your power? I'm not talking about control-type power. I'm talking about self-empowerment. The kind that moves mountains and brings you joy.
Have you given away your power to money? A boss? A family member or ex? Perhaps your loss of control comes at the hand of the government, or healthcare, or perhaps your job?
Where are you placing your emotional energy? What thoughts are spinning around in your head?
If they aren't solely around determining what you love and how to give and receive more of it daily, then you are wasting your time and precious energy. We, the collective, need your emotional energy devoted to what you love.
We have brought this chaos to us at a pivotal point in humanity. It's our wake-up call. It all seems to be "falling down around us" so that we see a new perspective. Choose differently. Focus on what matters.
You can't change others' opinions or votes or focus. All you can do is be sure of who you are and what you love. It will bleed over to them and then they will have the option to join with you or not.
If you are spending time spinning around outside sources of chaos, please stop. Look inside. Determine what you love. See if you are giving and receiving that love daily. If you're not, change your focus.
Contact me if you need help shifting your perspective. It's what I teach.
Live in love,
Yesterday I heard I was supposed to create this hashtag on Twitter, and if you've been following me for any length of time you know that I always check in with my intuition, and if it feels right, I listen. Sometimes it's hard not to ask a thousand questions of myself or my "team," but I've learned to trust.
I don't know why I had to create it, or even what it means exactly. But I do know what it is NOT.
It's not about the Democrats winning over the Republicans, or vice versa. It's not about which cause gets heard or voted on, or which movement or account gains the most followers.
It's not about one religion being the saving grace, or one race or country being the most powerful.
I DO know that this is a collective perspective, created together. It's based on what is best for all of humanity without regard to political agenda, financing, wealth status, nationality, religion, sexual orientation or job title. It includes basic human standards of living for all, with no one disempowered in order to achieve this.
No side or cause wins if the disempowerment of even one person is the result.
How we do that exactly is my next question...and honestly, I have no idea. That's the part we are supposed to create together.
But I do know it doesn't include demeaning others, a war on anything, fighting for what's "right," exclusion from human rights for any reason and always, always, respect for human life, both physically and emotionally.
Isn't it finally about time? I think we've reached the tipping point. Let's call it a day and start #theWEmovement.
Follow me on Twitter to exchange ideas @CarrieBeleno.
And as always,
Live in Love.
The ability to play football is not a gift. In fact, I don't believe there really is anything that we are "gifted" with. The definition of gifted means "talented, accomplished, proficient, expert." Society deems someone "gifted" when they are successful at what they set out to do.
I'm going to argue that you may not even need the talent for it...plenty of successful people will tell you that they didn't think they had the talent, but had the love, drive and perseverance for their passion, thus becoming accomplished and considered gifted.
Once upon a time, I was nominated for "Athlete of the Quarter" in high school (yes, you can laugh). I led an awesome aerobics class! Was I talented? Heck no! (Those who know me will fully agree!) But I had passion and drive, and that's what was noticed.
People who are considered "successful" hone in on what they love, practice the hell out of it, and don't let anything get in the way of their passion.
Likewise, "psychic ability" is not a gift reserved for a lucky few.
I could choose to play a sport. I would certainly never be called "gifted." But I could play and love it! And may even become accomplished in it with some (much) perseverance.
You can sing. You may never become a viable contestant on American Idol, but you can choose to sing, not judge yourself, and love it!
It's time to stop calling "psychic ability" a gift. It's not. It's a birthright given to us all, and it simply means:
Following your gut.
Following your gut (and heart) will help you navigate everything from which route to take to work to what to say to a grieving co-worker. It's a necessary skill to be developed in this current state of the world. Here are a few steps:
In order to make this world a saner, more joyful place to live, it is necessary that you follow your intuition. Develop your talent. Need help? It's why I teach what I teach. Contact me.
In the meantime,
Live in Love.
A reader commented that they'd like my take on "destiny and love" and since it comes up with many, many clients, I'll share my insights!
Destiny is a huge topic in the "spiritual community" involving lots of New Age buzzwords: fate, karma, free will. But I have found that simplicity is the theme for this new energy that we are encountering on Earth, this new "ascension" or "awakening" information that's unfolding, and my latest direction and what many of my clients bring to the table is the need for simplicity. It matters!
If you refer to my last blog, I mentioned timelines. It's my understanding now that every one of us has created unlimited possibilities (timelines) prior to our birth. If you've seen the movie "Interstellar," a great visual on timelines is what Cooper saw when he was trying to affect change from his dimension in his daughter's bedroom.
The choices that we make in each and every moment (and honestly, the only free will is the choice to move with the "light" of a situation or swim in the "muck" of it...) unlock the next steps on various timelines. Obviously, the light of a situation will unlock more light, the muck, muck. Remember, like still attracts like.
Now comes the "destiny" secret...
It's ALL destiny. Everything! We are limitless beings who have limitless possibilities available to us, created BY us (and all the other beings who joined us in our creation project!) That's part of the empowerment teaching that I do.
So as you choose the "light" or the "muck" in each circumstance and unlock the next timeline door, those endless possibilities become available to you.
There aren't any true statements saying:
It's ALL available, sitting in the timelines that you created, waiting for you to intentionally choose them!
If you need help doing this, or want clarity around life, love or "destiny," I can help. Contact me.
In the meantime, it's very important that you,
Live in love,
I know I'm guilty. I've used the word "manifesting" often...taught clients the best way to manifest, explained the difference between "light" and "dark" energy, high and low vibes, powerful emotions and low vibrating ones...not that any of that was misguided, don't get me wrong. It was where we all were in understanding energy at the time.
However, my most recent messages from my higher self, my "team," my 3D mentors and all forms of inter-dimensional assistance has led me to one powerful conclusion:
Manifesting is not a thing.
We don't manifest. We can't manifest. Everything is already created...EVERYTHING. We have all created every single possible scenario in life for ourselves and laid it all out in front of us in neat little paths.
I call them timelines, and each one is available to us. Each one is simply waiting for an intention to be set.
If you discover that you "manifested" something, it is because you intended to step onto that timeline and discover the treasure waiting for you.
But that doesn't make it any less exciting!
What it does is take the "spiritual" pressure off of us. We don't have to "hold the vibe" or "think positive thoughts" or "change our emotions." All we have to do is find what we truly, believably love and intend to step onto that timeline, fearlessly.
"The Universe" isn't delivering anything to us. WE are simply locating something we created a long, long time ago.
There are so many new and wonderful 5D energetic opportunities unfolding for us right now...simplifying "New Age" thoughts is one of them.
The world is not as bad as it seems.
The solution is inside each of us.
Live in love,
"Be Happy." A phrase that we've been throwing around for decades. What does it really mean? Is anyone actually happy?
First, realize that the phrase is "be happy," not "do happy." So happiness requires a certain state of being, not doing. Now, getting to the "being happy" may require some "doing," as in reducing work hours or telling your boss that pressures need to change or ending a relationship.
But ultimately, the state of happiness comes from being. Being you, being authentic to what you believe and feel, being the person "you used to be." Being peaceful, being in the moment, being courageous, being of service to others.
Not happy? Fix it. That's all there is to it. If someone says to me, "There's nothing I can do," then I would say that they are comfortable in their state of unhappiness and are choosing the easy way out.
Arriving at your "happy place" may take some work. It may hurt people's feelings. But remember, everyone has a choice in every given moment. They can choose to have their feelings hurt, or they can decide there is growth in the experience for themselves and find their happiness as well.
If you've been reading my blog, you know that I often use the term, "Live in Love." What does that really mean?
For me, it means being happy. Being content with every moment of life and allowing that to shine to others. Letting them SEE that peace. If you aren't experiencing this for the majority of your day,
We need you to walk through this world happy, content, courageous and at peace.
I'm creating lots of changes for myself right now, "fixing it" if you will, and I'm embracing them because change means new adventures and opportunities. Create some change for yourself and grab the excitement!
Live in Love,
Here's my latest article in Style magazine in case you missed it, and NO that photo is not of me, I haven't changed THAT much!
Yeshua means "salvation" in Hebrew....But before you stop reading, this is not a post about salvation, or religion, or a lecture on the Bible or about being "saved."
This is about where we are headed as a human collective. You know, the stuff I've been talking about for years? But it's getting pretty serious now. You CAN see that, right?
The Yeshua collective is the answer to what the world needs right now.
The Yeshua is a group that has been guiding me for years, and helps guide my clients as well. (There are actually lots of guidance groups: angels, masters, departed loved ones, dimensional energies...they all weigh in for me as needed.) Here's a bit of history~
They support and teach the "We Are All One" theory. The theory that what you do to yourself you do to all, and what you do to another affects you. The theory of unconditional love: We are all perfect just the way we are. And they guide us to understand and accept others just the way they are as well~without judgment, bias, hatred, or bigotry. You know, regardless of race, color, religion, sexual orientation or ethnicity?
This collective has been guiding us for millennia, starting way back in Atlantis, continuing through Egypt, and then setting the stage for our human form of Jesus and other spiritual masters. As much as they tried to assist us in understanding through all of these eras, we just couldn't, and didn't, accept their examples of oneness.
Since Easter is tomorrow, I thought it would be the perfect time to point out that they're still around, guiding us, teaching us, showing us unconditional love at every turn. Giving us opportunity after opportunity to recognize that We Are All One, that what you do to one you do to all, and that diversity is an illusion.
Humanity keeps inventing tragic ways to stand up for what is "right" and declare who we are. Take the lead from our Yeshua collective friends and decide that we no longer need those tragedies to bring out the best in humanity. We can do it all by ourselves, without the traumatic impetus.
Live in Love,
I can't believe I've never seen this before! Almost 53 years old and I noticed something that has probably happened in front of me a hundred times...but I never took notice.
A "V" of Canada Geese flew overhead. The lead goose made a funny "squawk, squawk" sound that caused me to look up. At that moment, the tail end of the "V" started furiously flying, overtaking the front section of the "V," which subsequently dropped to the rear.
A changing of the guard.
And then it hit me. That's where we're at on Earth right now, a changing of the guard. The old way of thinking, acting, and believing is dying. The new way is birthing.
Don't be misled by what is happening in society right now or what you read in the media. The shift IS happening. All is not lost. Look closer. You'll see the changes if you ask to notice them. I've been leading the empowerment change for years, and it IS working. Don't be fooled.
Just like I saw the change flying above me today.
We cannot create a new reality from an old understanding. Change your perspective. All is not lost. Humanity is not doomed.
Diversity is a myth. We are all equal, all one. What you do to yourself (or how you treat yourself) affects others. How you treat others affects you. Smile. Find joy. Reflect, don't react. Nothing is worth spouting anger or fear over.
Say "I love you," especially to strangers. Make their day. Feel worthy.
This is the ripple effect that will change the guard. Help me retire them. Do your part.
Live in love.
Want to connect with me and allow "the team" to guide answers to those really big questions? Join me here.
Pretend it's your last day on Earth in life as we know it.
Some of you will shout, "Thank God!" Some of you may cry...
But here's what I want you to do, right now. Make your mental list of what you would do.
Pretend it really is your last day on Earth as we know it.
I know what you would do...you would do as many things as possible that bring you joy.
~You'd laugh with your kids.
~You'd spend some time in nature.
~You'd call your friends and family.
~You'd eat whatever you want.
So today, do those things. Make that phone call you've been putting off. Apologize for the stupid thing you said or did 10 years ago. Hug your partner and tell them you love them just the way they are. Stop beating yourself up for whatever it is you think you're not good enough at.
Pick up trash in the neighborhood. Feed the birds. Visit your grandmother in the nursing home you haven't seen in a year.
Make your list and go do some of them today. I am.
The world will thank you for it.
I'll let you in on a little secret...the world IS ending as we know it, and you are helping it become its newest and brightest version.
Live in love,
