OK humanity, take a seat. I want you to be comfortable as I offer this information...
There's a lot going on in the world that is horrifying, no question. We must do something about the hatred and evil on Earth, right? But it's so hard, you say. It's everywhere!
Yes, I agree that we must do something. But the solution is not hard and it's not what you think. It's really quite simple.
OK? you say. That's not a hard concept to understand, of course we need to stop fighting. Do you see what's going on "out there?"
Bear with me.
It's time to choose differently. Completely. We are at a crossroads in humanity, and August's solar eclipse was the "GO" signal.
So when I say "stop fighting," I mean totally stop fighting. We must rewrite humanity's story and change its direction.
Stop fighting means the obvious. But it also means:
Everyone, give up the fight.
Give up the battle against white supremacy, neo-nazis and racism. End the war on terrorism, drugs and cancer. Stop fighting crime, ignorance and bigotry.
Fighting is fighting. War is war. Doesn't matter if you think it is "right vs. wrong," "good vs. evil" or "light vs. dark."
It's still all fighting. Can you see that?
Want to know what you CAN do to change humanity's story? Choose differently.
Be the force you want to see in the world. Disturbed by the events in Charlottesville? Go knock on your neighbor's doors, introduce yourself and organize a block party. Disgusted with the government leader's reactions and responses? React and respond differently yourself. Don't criticize your daughter's boyfriend or your cousin's choice of career. Respond to them with understanding and acceptance.
Declaring that you are "against" anything brings more of what you declare you are against. It's the law of attraction and it is powerful.
So stop being "against" anything and be "for" what you cherish. Be for love, be for peace.
Be for the light you wish to see everyday, everywhere, and act on it.
It's the only way to move humanity forward and I, we, are all counting on you. I promise it will work if we all choose differently.
Live in love.

Indulge me for a moment...suppose stress IS a myth? Suppose we created the entity of "stress" so that society had something to blame for the dis-ease of the world: headaches, heart disease, nervous breakdowns, insomnia, anxiety...?
These are real afflictions, make no mistake. These are not "it's all in your head" conditions. However, I found in my work and through the universal life truths that we no longer need to blame the mindless monster called "stress."
After all, stress seems indomitable, right? I mean, who can stop stress? It's everywhere! You find it lurking at work, at the grocery store, at home, while driving, on the internet, at the doctor's office...all around!
Let's put the monster "stress" in its place, shall we? Once and for all?
The official definition of stress is, "a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances."
But I offer, it's not the demanding circumstances that create the stress. It's the emotional imbalance that causes the stress. (One person's stress is another person's motivation!)
Family calling you at all hours with their drama around "Aunt Sue?" It's not stress that is driving you nuts, it is the anger, frustration and sadness of their spewing or Aunt Sue's actions that are causing you "stress." Work demands bigger than you can handle and you're experiencing anxiety? Don't blame it on stress. Recognize that you are fearful or unhappy or frustrated.
Here's why: Emotions are much, much easier to recognize and shift than "stress" is. Stress is bigger than us. Stress seems insurmountable.
Our emotions are inside of US. They are part of who we are, and we've lived with them our whole lives. They are easier to identify and shift, and once you do, they lead to life-long peace and happiness.
So in this moment, stop focusing on stress. Stop announcing that you have "too much stress." Determine what you DO have too much of: Sadness? Frustration? Guilt? Anger? Take steps to shift those low emotions.
Play with your kids. Do something outside. Call a friend. Watch a funny movie. Hold hands with your partner.
Detach from the drama. Stop owning what isn't yours. Stress will become identifiable and then you'll be able to take those baby steps to eradicate it from your life once and for all.
Trust me, I see it every day.
Live in love,
PS: Listen to my episode on the emotional scale which will put emotions in perspective, and contact me if you need help dumping stress for good. Literally, for good.
PPS: Wasn't that a fabulous full moon eclipse yesterday? That was our signal to release what no longer serves us. Are you ready to release?
I bet you are.
You can look right into the eyes of a cat or observe their body language and figure out what they're trying to do or say. (Mine is looking for lunch!)
People are a bit more complicated. We've become really good at putting on a brave face, all while looking for...
What? Looking for the right thing to say to make their partner understand them. Looking for the perfect job, more loyal friends, a mate. Looking for answers to their problems or health concerns.
All in an effort to bring joy, happiness and love into their lives.
Now don't get me wrong, these are all noble pursuits! We can feel joy, happiness and love with a partner that understands us or better health or a job we love.
But if you are constantly looking, you will never find. It's the Law of Attraction at work: like attracts like. If you are putting emotional energy into "looking," it tells the universe that you lack "it." You will receive more lack of "it."
Today, act as if you own it. Stop looking. Move through your day as if that job is already yours and walk through every door that cracks open for you. Approach your partner as if s/he already fully understands every word you say. Be grateful (out loud if necessary!) for each small step toward your big picture.
Recognize that once your perspective changes, your reality MUST follow.
In other words, everything you need to shift your world is right inside you.
Has been all along...isn't that freeing?

Are YOU listening? I mean really listening? Or do you find yourself plowing through your day, flopping exhausted on the couch, wondering where the day went?
The time has come to hone your listening skills. You've heard that before, right? We should all be better listeners?
I bet you don't hear: "Stop and listen to yourself" very often.
But you must. Right now. Here's why:
Our soul, higher self, divine goodness~ whatever you may call it~ has a direct line of communication with us. In fact, it wants so badly for us to hear and connect with our physical body that it established THREE lines of communication (just in case you miss the first two)!
One is through our heart feelings, one is through our gut instincts and the last is through our thoughts.
Our souls know the "Easy Path," the ultimate destination of joy, love and peace...what will bring us profound happiness. And it wants us to achieve it.
So it sets out to communicate the steps along the way of the Easy Path, giving us mile markers and clues to help us navigate life. They come in three forms:
Most of us know what makes our hearts sing (and if you don't know, please take some time today to identify what they are, you must find your joy!).
We've all had gut instincts kick in as well, sometimes we follow it (I knew that was the right thing to do OR, dang, I wish I had listened to my gut).
Thoughts are a bit trickier, because sometimes they are our intuition (there's a reason the third eye is located on the forehead) and sometimes they are our ego running amok. Here's how you can tell the difference:
How many times have you had a nagging thought or a gut feeling that you should:
Do yourself a favor: Stop, look and listen. Today. Notice what your soul is communicating to you. And don't be afraid of what it says.
Remember, your soul knows the Easy Path. It knows the end destination to get you to happiness and it won't let you down. Will there be hiccups along the way? Sure.
But that's the game of life we signed up for. Go play the game!
Live in love,

Death is a choice? Really? Who says?
Can't believe it? It's not conjecture or wishful thinking or imagination on my part. It's my universal truth and I implore you to continue reading.
In case you missed it, I'm a medium. I have connected with thousands of departed loved ones and this truth comes from their messages.
Don't get me wrong, their human self may not have chosen to die, but I guarantee their higher self, their soul, did. Our souls know everything, including when it is time to join the other side instead of schlepping around in this world we call life.
Sometimes they are given a choice to stay or go. Sometimes they are shown what is to come in their lifetime versus the magic they'll be able to perform on the other side and they choose. Sometimes they return (near death experiences) and sometimes they go for the gold on the other side. And sometimes their human form is surprised by death.
But in the end, they know we will all be together again. They know that they never really leave us. They know that they can affect our lives so much more powerfully from the other side. They become pure love.
Why am I sharing this today? Because I just released my podcast episode titled: "Making Sense of the Senseless." If I can add just one thing to that episode, it is this:
Do not carry the "what ifs."
"What if" it hadn't rained that day? "What if" she hadn't left the house? "What if" I had made a different medical decision? "What if"...
The worry and guilt that accompany "what ifs" are damaging and paralyzing. If it wasn't supposed to rain, it wouldn't have. If she wasn't supposed to leave the house, she wouldn't have. If you were supposed to have made a different medical decision, you would have made it.
All of these things are divinely orchestrated for the soul who departed. It was their path, their journey.
Lift the guilt surrounding grief. I guarantee your loved ones want you to live life to its fullest while you can because this life is as short as the blink of an eye. They want you to live in love and joy and peace, not guilt, regret, grief and remorse.
Look for their magic. I promise you it's there if you step away from missing them. Declaring that you miss them causes you to miss the magic.
If you need help navigating death or grief, please contact me.
It's my wish that you can:
Live in Love.
Side note #1: For those who think being a medium is "the devil's work," I pose this question to you: My mission is to teach people how to live in love, enjoying every moment this glorious life has to offer, using the guidance system that was created for us: our loved ones, angels, guides, masters and yes, even God. The devil's work? I think not. I've seen the results. (Anyhow, there is no "devil," another one of my truths.)
Side note #2: The accompanying photo was given to me by someone I know and love. It's not photoshopped. And it's not a harbinger of death. It is part of that spectacular guidance system that I, and you, can tap into. Please start tapping, it's time.
My "Chaos to Calm" Weekend Immersion course is now available for those who live locally.
Men are the answer to our problems.
Yes, you read me correctly. Men are the answer to our problems.
For several years now, and particularly after November's election, I've been advocating for the rise of women in power, thinking that WE need to take control of the crumbling structures: government, education, medicine...
But I've had a change of heart.
You see, I've been connecting with more and more men through my Intuitive Reiki practice and teachings than in all my 16 years combined, and I've been witnessing a shift, a HUGE shift. One that can change the face of society, overnight if we allow it.
These men GET IT. These men understand that their limited thinking about The Illusions: income, material wealth, homes, cars, sports~ matter not. They understand that soul-to-soul connections are what matter: family, friends, pets, and most importantly, themselves. They haven't loved themselves in a VERY long time.
They felt insecure and insecurity leads to their need to take control... power of the dangerous kind.
They understand that we cannot continue to live in the paradigm "they" have created.
And since "they" created it, and currently run it, they are the best ones to dig us out of the hole they dug.
The really fantastic thing about these men is the speed at which they grasp their spiritual truths. They don't have to be told twice to give up the guilt. They don't need to hear over and over again that they are worthy to love and be loved. They are ready to embrace the "New Man."
Women, look for these new men. I promise you they exist. Give up your self-limiting beliefs about your worthiness, guilt and self-confidence. Become empowered. Use that powerful voice to encourage these men in your life to step up to the plate. We need them now to declare who they are and what they love.
They are inside the structures and can turn them on a dime. That's what we need.
And men, listen to these women. They know what they are talking about, they know what matters in life.
We need to become partners, no more "us against them." Together we can change the face of the world: from Chaos to Calm.
Live in love,
Want to connect with me? I now offer sessions via Skype for those not in my immediate area: www.carriebeleno.com/about.html
I read an article yesterday that suggested that 70% of the world was swimming around in the muck of anger, fear, hopelessness and helplessness.
That's WAY over the majority of people...and if you follow anything I've ever said, hitting the majority (51%) is what tips the scales to create our reality.
That doesn't work for me.
We cannot allow a world like that for our children and grandchildren to exist. I cannot allow that to continue to happen.
Are you one of these 70%? Aren't you tired of living in hopelessness and helplessness?
I heard that some people won't contact me for guidance because it is easier to live with the pain than to face the fear of "what I'll say."
They're missing the point. It has nothing to do with "what I'll say" and everything to do with the pain they are carrying. That pain contributes to the world's pain, angry weather, the war rhetoric, riots, shootings, terrorist attacks and....
You get the picture.
Don't fear me! I'll give you hope and help with assistance from your "team." They only want the very best for you and the best certainly isn't mucking around in pain, fear, anger and hopelessness.
Why did I create this podcast? To reach the people who are afraid and to continue to guide those who are revolutionizing the way we operate. It's a non-threatening way to be introduced to the miraculous messages from our spiritual teams and a guide to keep evolving up and out of the muck we have created.

Like many of you, I read this book about 10 years ago. My mom gave it to me, and it was powerful! It added to my experience in understanding that God IS accessible.
I never would have imagined this book, 10 years later, would make such an impact on me, in a very real way.
Sheri and I attended a holistic expo this past weekend~she offered Reiki and I offered spiritual guidance along with my "Chaos to Calm" and "Following Your Intuition" workshops. While I was leading a workshop, three women signed up for 1:1 sessions. A nice surprise when I returned to my table!
Little did I know the surprise that actually awaited me.
When the first woman arrived, she was so excited! Our conversation went something like this:
She: "I was so excited to see that you were here after I read about you in The Shack last night!"
Me (in disbelief): "Um, what? You read about me in The Shack last night?"
She: "Yes! The author mentioned you and The Night Yoda Phoned as an inspiration in the author's notes! Didn't you know that?"
Sheri looked at me dumbfounded, confused as to why I never shared this very important fact with her.
Me: "I didn't know that and YOU'RE KIDDING?"
She: "No, I picked up the book at the airport and finished reading it last night and there you were. And when I saw that you were here today I just KNEW I had to meet you!"
We proceeded with the 1:1 session, which was quite magical, but I could not wait for the day to end so I could run to a bookstore and look for myself. She promised me she would text me the page as soon as she returned home, but I didn't want to wait that long!
Sheri and I stopped at a Walmart and read the final 20 pages of the book to find: NOTHING. Not a word about me. The reprint had occurred in 2016, so the possibility certainly existed that my book could have been mentioned, but it wasn't.
We knew we had to wait for her text, so we stopped at the local Panera to grab dinner before starting our 3+ hour drive home. Guess who was at Panera?
Yep, it was the woman with The Shack. She tells me again that she knows what she read, otherwise she wouldn't have been so excited to see me at the expo. And promised she'd text me the page.
So we waited. Two hours later the text came:
"I cannot find any reference to your book in the author's notes in The Shack. I think Spirit intended for us to meet today for I know what I saw last night!"
My conclusion: Our spiritual teams: God, our loved ones, angels and guides, will go to any length (including easily manipulating time, space and matter) to make sure we are connected to those we need to be here on earth, but we must follow our intuition, our divine navigation system, in order to see the magic unfold.
One final note: Her last name is Gabriel. Coincidence? I think not. Gabriel is the archangel of writers. No coincidence that the The Shack was the book of choice for a divine message, either.
Watch for the magic. It DOES exist, I promise you. And, as always,
Live in Love.
I now offer Skype spiritual guidance and Intuitive Reiki sessions to help you connect with your magic.

My latest podcast episode was just released, please listen, subscribe, rate and review to help me go global, and move from #Chaostocalm.
If you are at all connected with me or my work, it would be hard to miss the fact that my podcast launched! And yes, you are seeing it one more time.
That's because I am on a mission to share these messages with the world, literally.
I "accidently" misspelled solution today in a post, spelling it "soulution." And that's when it dawned on me:
We are ALL part of the soulution when we tap into our souls' guidance, listening and following. That's part of the messages I deliver in my podcast. Life doesn't have to keep going the way it is~ we CAN live healthy, wealthy and peaceful lives, coexisting in harmony.
While I was in the car dealership the other day, I was trying to explain what it is I do for a living. I simplified it by saying, "Do you see and feel what is going on out there in the world? Well I'm part of the solution."
And in that instant...wait for it...
"Under Pressure" began on the radio. In case you haven't read my second book, that's a song that plays at exactly the right moment every time I need a lift or a sign that I'm headed in the right direction.
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't give love that one more chance?
Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love....
'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word
And love dares you to care for the people on the
Edge of the night and love dares you to
change our way of caring about ourselves.
And late that evening my podcast launched, a full two days ahead of the iTunes scheduled release.
YOU are part of the soulution in so many ways. Please take a moment to listen, subscribe, rate and review my podcast so the world can benefit from these healing, universal truths, and then:
Live in love.
"War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Peace, love and understanding
Tell me, is there no place for them today?
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But lord knows there's got to be a better way." *Edwin Starr
Remember these lyrics from that 1969 hit? Not much has changed, has it?
Nations warring, leaders disputing, terrorists attacking.
Ready to be part of the change? How, you ask? What are we supposed to be doing to affect them? We are few, they are many!
And I argue, don't be fooled: WE are the many, THEY are the few.
It is time to stop the war. Right now, today, and everyday...forevermore.
Stop feuding with your neighbor. Call a truce with your siblings. Stop blaming your parents for whatever injustice you think they incurred. You have brought these experiences to yourself to share the love your soul has to offer, so start sharing.
We must stop believing in a society where there is "right versus wrong." "Right versus wrong" leads to "right conquers wrong" and that leads to violence. Period.
There is only our perspective. That's it. And our perspective needs to change immediately if we are going to impact our future for the better.
Do your part, end any and all wars you are now engaging in. For your health and the health of our future.
Live in Love,
*Please use the links and follow me on Facebook and Twitter, and on Instagram @carriebeleno. I have exciting projects that I'm launching shortly to help move the world from "Chaos to Calm" and I need YOU to be a part of the shift!
