This aphorism is thrown around all the time~ from New Age gurus and inspirational speakers, from the spiritual and religious communities, and with a plethora of memes from anyone just trying to get people to stop arguing on social media....
But what the heck does it mean? And why should we bother to "be the light?" Is it really going to matter? Can anything I do make a dent in the unrest that inhabits every corner of society?
The answer is a resounding YES!
And the reason you have to be the light? Because it causes a ripple effect. You may not see it, but energetically it's there. We can choose to be the light or be absent of light.
More importantly, it makes you feel better. And one less anxious, angry person gets us one step closer to compromise. To unity. To "what's good for you is good for me."
That's where we are headed and there's no turning back now. We've crumbled our systems.
Now go "be the light" because we can't create our new future without you.
Live in love,
PS: Having trouble finding your light? Please contact me for a 1:1 spiritual coaching session. We need you!
We see the divide. We feel it in every bone in our bodies, around every corner we turn. It seems endless and exhausting.
Ready to bridge it? I am. But first, here's how it won't work:
It won't work by trying to convince those on the other side of the divide that they are misled, mistaken, or misinterpreting.
In fact, no amount of convincing will do any good at all, so we all may as well stop trying. I have.
In other words, let's end the rhetoric on why Trump is good or bad, why we need or don't need a vaccine, whether or not we should send our kids to school...
You will never convince someone that their beliefs are "wrong" when the entire world is operating out of fear.
Please stop trying.
The only way someone's beliefs change is when they emotionally experience something for themselves. Notice that? For example, those who believed that the virus was a hoax changed their minds when they were emotionally impacted~ when they lost a loved one from the virus, for instance.
Nothing anyone ever said to them changed their minds. Because we are not in a mind game right now. Right now we are playing the emotional game.
And that's just the way it's supposed to be. The divide is the illusion to get us to join together as the human race.
That needs to be stated again:
The divide is the illusion to get us to join together as the human race.
Even those well-meaning folks who ask questions like, "What is one thing that the President has done to benefit humanity? I want to understand your perspective," are swimming upstream. Unless they have a personal, emotional reaction to an experience, they won't ever hear an answer that will convince them otherwise.
The way that we will bridge this illusory divide is to connect with people at the core of their humanity.
"How are you feeling?" "Tell me how your spouse is coping with everything?" "What have you done for fun lately?" "How can I help you?" "What amazing things has your toddler said recently?"
This is the new game in town...connecting with others on our shared experiences.
Living and loving as human beings.
You have permission to stop trying to convince. It's exhausting and pointless. Take a break. Not for our sake but for YOURS.
My work focuses solely on keeping our mind, body, emotions, and spirit balanced, and right now we are so out-of-balance that we can't even see it. But the after-effects are going to be enormous if we don't get a handle on it right now.
So take a break. Don't scroll or investigate or reply today. And tomorrow, start a new narrative:
"What can I do to help?"
"How is everyone feeling?"
"I love you."
Let's start joining the only race that matters. The human race.
Live in love,
Please, if you find yourself struggling, I am available for in-person and 1:1 intuitive Reiki and spiritual life coaching sessions to help you re-charge, start fresh and stay healthy. Contact me.
It's impossible to ignore all of the things that are dividing humanity right now, isn't it?
Politics, race, bureaucracy, government officials, laws, social media, school scheduling, medical care...Even a simple five-inch square of cloth.
A five-inch square of cloth.
Are you exhausted yet? I know I am.
But there's a cure. A very simple cure. And it doesn't start with the government or a vaccine or social media advertising or anything at all that is "outside" of us.
It starts and ends with YOU. And me. All of us, together.
Are you ready to know what it is? Ready to commit to the solution? Here it is:
Accept everyone for what they believe and where they are. That's it.
No "buts:" But their decisions will hurt me or my family. But their beliefs aren't what's best for the country...
No "buts." Period.
We are in a quest right now to unify humanity. And the way to do this is to allow everyone to believe what they need to believe and create their own journey. Every fear or law or conspiracy theory or government official (or not).
You do you. You follow what your heart is saying is right for you and let everyone else worry about themselves. You can't convince or change anyone. They must choose their experience for themselves.
You can't do it for them.
None of us really knows what's going on right now, but this I do know:
We must bridge the divide.
Healers, therapists, medical professionals, educators~ I'm asking you to go first. Stop antagonizing "the other side." Stop trying to sell your point on liberalism or conservatism or vaccines or pro-choice or whatever it is you believe.
Accept. Extend the olive branch. Stop posting argumentative or antagonizing diatribe. In your heart you know what it is doing to humanity. Look there.
Reach out and have these tough conversations with friends and family personally if you feel called, but please, please, become part of the solution to unifying humanity.
It's time. We're counting on you.
Live in love,
Having trouble navigating anger and fear? Please call me to schedule a session. I'd like to help.
Now that the human race has slowed to a crawl, I hope that you see what I see...
~People are collecting food and offering it for free.
~Restaurant owners are feeding needy children and families.
~Clients and patrons are supporting small business owners, even while said businesses are closed.
~Parents are schooling each other's children.
~Teachers and professors are quickly adapting to new technology to reach their students.
~Independent contractors are offering their services via the internet.
~Religious organizations are providing services online to reach anyone who wants to view.
~Massive caring for the Earth is underway: from cleaning up to gardening to feeding and caring for wildlife.
Do you see what has happened?
We are figuring out how to provide and care for each other and the earth, despite the apparent constraints placed upon us.
Now, here comes the good part! In spite of appearances, we are no longer at the mercy of corporations or the government. Banks have to listen to us. Insurance companies have to listen to us. Government officials' hands are tied until they begin an open dialogue with us because we aren't buying the narrative any longer.
Don't you see? We ARE the corporations and the government. It's not "us against them," it's WE.
Don't wait for some massive government package to restart the economy or dictum for corporate conglomerates to arrive.
It starts with us. This movement has been kickstarted for us, now it's our turn to do something with the opportunity!
Everything has become quite transparent, hasn't it? If you are disturbed, for instance, by the dividends the insurance companies are paying out while simultaneously raising their rates, respectfully voice your concerns (you may be surprised at the outcome. I was).
Phone the candidates who are running for office (be bipartisan!) and have respectful conversations with them about their vision for change. Express what you want to see happen and how they align with your vision.
What are YOU going to suggest to your boss or board of directors when things return to "normal?" Do you want to offer online services? Work from home? Create an app for clients to reach you easily? Create a new outreach department?
What social services do you want to create? Garden shares? Market drop-offs? Programs to funnel leftover food from restaurants and stores to shelters and centers? Start creating! Talk to your colleagues and friends. Find the gaps. Solve the problems.
Discuss with your healthcare professionals ways that they are reaching out to those impacted by lack of insurance or access...brainstorm with them what your vision of effective healthcare is. Ask them to collaborate with their colleagues. Check back in with them.
What benefits or downfalls have your children experienced by learning with you? What insights do you now have regarding education? Talk with the PTA. Brainstorm with teachers. I guarantee they feel the same way you do. Boards of directors are there for a reason. Become involved.
Demand inspires the supply. Don't wait for some government agency to create it or a new president to take over.
WE are the agents of change, we always have been, we've just been asleep. Now that we're awake, let's get humanity to work!
Why? you ask. Why viruses? Why political divisiveness? Why world turmoil? Why do "bad things happen to good people?" Why, why, why? Surely we are victims...we didn't ask for this, right?
My mission in life (and my actual job) is to offer new perspectives on life's traumas and experiences~and the emotions that come with them~to help us become happier and healthier humans.
And I'd like to offer a perspective on this WHY question...and as always, you can take what resonates and leave the rest.
Our job as 3D beings is to fully experience emotions. We're the only ones who can do it like we do~full body reactions to powerful emotions. And that's OK! That's one of our missions in life, to feel these emotions. That's why it is so very important that we don't try to mask these emotions with drugs, legal or otherwise. We've got to feel them, learn how they affect our bodies and then move on with them.
But we've reached a turning point in our story. We've felt every emotion, especially those more challenging ones, time and time again, for millennia. Many of us are ready for a new story.
Collectively though, we are still choosing to experience these deeper, more traumatic emotions. Things like viruses and political divisiveness are attempting to trigger those emotions in us, particularly the lower-vibrating ones like fear and powerlessness.
Is it working for you? Are you triggered?
Now, create the new story. Recognize that that is exactly what is happening, and choose to NOT be triggered. Choose to be happy and healthy despite what appears to be happening in the world.
Request in your prayers or meditations or silent walks or however you detach and ground, that the collective no longer chooses traumatic experiences to bring out the best in ourselves or each other. You know, the giving of money or "thoughts and prayers" or the countless other ways we try to help in traumatic situations.
Traumatic situations can also cause us to sit home in fear glued to the news. Please don't do that.
Allow the best of you to shine through in every single situation you encounter, without adding to the collective's request for a catalyst of trauma to do so.
If you need help navigating these emotions, ending the cycle of monkey-mind, or want to feel lighter with a sense of purpose, contact me. If you have questions about the energies that are flying around us~ the talk of 3D/4D/5D~ contact me, I can explain them.
Most of all, do your best to live everyday with the goal of affecting others with your light, your positivity, your love, despite what appears to be happening "out there."
Live in love,
You don't have to believe, understand or have faith.
You don't have to buy in, tap in or "feel the energy."
It's happening to all of us, just by virtue of the fact that we are alive on Earth together in this moment.
We have chosen, as humanity, to evolve.
You may take a look at the world right now and say, "There is NO way this world is evolving! It's a s***show out there right now!"
But I beg to differ (I'll write again shortly and explain why that is). Take a walk with me, it's ok, I don't bite.
We are the only beings in creation that experience emotions the way we do, and we chose it that way.
We chose to feel anger, sadness and hatred along with love, joy and compassion. Feeling them to the depths of our core is how we have been navigating and living since our creation. None of these emotions are punishments by the way~ they are what make us human.
Here's where we are evolving. We are beginning to see that love is the only thing that matters (yep, all those memes are correct!). When you can begin to understand that we are all players in each other's stories, that everyone is doing the best they can with what they have to work with, that it is futile, painful, and damaging to hang onto the experiences and emotions around difficult people or situations,
then we begin to choose love instead. That's the evolving part.
You may find yourself feeling less guilt and shame, less anger and hatred. You may find yourself flipping a switch...choosing to change direction during a challenging situation, surrendering, or at least knowing that you should. You may find yourself allowing emotions to come and go easily, seeing that everything and everyone has a purpose in your life or in society's game.
Revenge and forgiveness won't ever be on the table because you will hold compassion for everyone's journey.
Most importantly, you will recognize that holding onto these painful emotions around situations and people can trigger illness and mental anguish, and you'll want to change your perspective as quickly as possible.
THAT'S the enlightened part. That's the evolutionary part. That's what ends wars and creates a new world for us to coexist harmoniously.
And it's happening whether or not you "feel the shift."
One of the reasons there's so much illness out there is because we are showing ourselves that emotional turmoil no longer serves us. We have less and less physical tolerance for carrying the baggage of traumatic experiences and emotions, or life and work situations that are aggravating, and our bodies are triggered more quickly.
That's why we seem to have "one thing after another" occur.
Discuss this idea with others. Explore what it means for you.
Contact me if you are in this cycle and want to break out of it once and for all...if you want to explore what all of this means in your life, if you need help navigating out of the depths of emotions and into a lighter, healthier state of being. If you have questions. I can help.
My purpose is to end the cycle of self-punishment, fear, anger and guilt and help as many people as possible achieve a bird's eye view of society while finding compassion and health.
Truly, we are all one. What you do for yourself you do for others. Do this for the evolution of humanity. We need you.
With much love,
No more alerts, banners, newsfeeds, apps...No more automatic updates...Not on TV, my phone, the radio. Nothing.
I've also deleted my Twitter account and eliminated Facebook scrolling.
But we're in the information age, you say. We can know anything in an instant, at our fingertips!
"Don't you want to know what's going on in the world?" people ask me.
And my honest-to-God answer is: NOPE.
I don't want to know what's going on in the world. I don't want to know which of my Facebook "friends" is currently heartbroken, or how much plastic just washed up on a beach, or who the latest mass murderer is and how many people he took with him.
I've decided to live my life the way I want to see it. Put my energy where it matters most and where I can keep stress to a bare minimum (actually non-existent), staying as emotionally sane as possible.
~I pick up plastic on the beach, mine and anyone else's I find.
~I look people in the eye at the grocery store and say "How are you?"
~I meet with my friends weekly. I message those who are on my mind and have a conversation.
~I pray for peace and sanity for everyone in this world.
~I donate when and where I want to.
~I continue to share my healing work and messages, working with others to expand my knowledge and practice and connecting with others, asking them to do the same.
I don't need a news commentator's two cents to motivate me to do any of these things. I don't need to know that the weather can be deadly or that it's dangerous to use my debit card at a gas station.
These things don't serve me and I don't want them in my reality.
But I do want you in my reality! So if you want me to know something, tell me, because I probably won't find out about it any other way.
The upside to that is I won't be adding my fear or sorrow or anxiety onto your Facebook posts, because that's what happens...like attracts like. How many of you felt worse after posting some news flash that a hundred people weighed in on with their fear or sorrow?
And what if we all shared our stories and concerns personally? It would...
Something sorely missing right now.
Contact me if you need help navigating the world today. Or, contact me to share your news. All in an effort to...
Live in love,
If you didn't read yesterday's post, please take a second and scroll back...I've got some follow up guidance on this 11/11...
Collectively, we put faith in numbers~dates, times, sequences~as an sign of "time to act" or "things are changing."
But they don't change because of the numbers, but because of the energy of expectation we place around these events, including the moon phases and solstices and astrological changes.
Today's 11/11! Repeating ones typically indicate change is in the air, or a new beginning...
Yesterday I mentioned catalysts in our lives being the cause of our evolutionary steps and frequency upgrades. Unfortunately, humans have used trauma and disease as our catalysts for eons.
On this 11/11, I'd like to propose a change. Listen very, very closely to what your gut is telling you. We can graduate from the need to create trauma as our catalysts, and 11/11 is the perfect day to do that! Once we listen to what our intuition is telling us, we won't need that proverbial "kick in the ass" to make a change.
Remember as well, we are the catalysts for everyone else. What we do and say can be the change agent for anyone around us. But we can't force them to evolve or see what we see.
So on this 11/11, spend your time and energy focusing on your intuition, growth and evolution, not on trying to convince anyone else they need to grow and evolve.
It's their choice to use the catalyst experience to their advantage, or not.
I also encourage you to set your intention to detach from any further "kicks in the ass" to spark your growth or a-ha's.
11/11 is the perfect day to do this!
Contact me if you need guidance figuring this out. Once you do, it becomes second nature!
Holding space for humanity~
Yes, I believe everything is energy. Everything. Most particularly, us. And because you are reading this, there may be a nugget of truth in my latest download for you.
A few weeks ago, I was given some "new" information regarding frequencies.
What I was shown I call our "set point" (at least, that's the word I was given).
Here's how it works: Each of us chose a frequency "set point" before we incarnated here on Earth. It is the frequency at which we chose to start our life.
Our emotions then become an indicator of our resonance with this set point. Let me explain...
Let's say we chose to start our life at 500 hertz, our personal frequency. When we encounter higher frequencies (emotions, people or circumstances) we feel great and generally want more! When we encounter lower frequencies (emotions, people or circumstances), we feel anxious, sad or want to escape, either physically (quitting a job) or through outside means such as alcohol or food.
That's why emotions can't be medicated or ignored, they tell us what is "good" for us and when we need to change what's around us.
Life circumstances, particularly trauma and illness, are catalysts for our evolution. We create them to evolve (a lightbulb goes off~ energy!) and that raises our frequency set point, permanently.
Think of life as just a series of experiences to raise our frequencies so we get closer to unconditional love.
That's why what used to work no longer feels right for so many of us~ life and circumstances are naturally raising our set points if we allow them to. And that is also why some people are not affected by the lower energy emotions or circumstances they create because their set point is at a lower frequency (take a look around, you'll see it happening right in front of your eyes).
Despite outward appearances, humanity IS moving forward, and because you are reading this, you are a BIG part of that! If you'd like to explore this in-depth and make sense of your personal evolution, feel free to contact me for a session.
Moving the world forward toward peace and health is what I LOVE to do, join me!
Yesterday I was presented with an opportunity to further my spiritual work in a mainstream setting, something I've been fostering in the world for decades (for all healers, not just me!).
But there was a caveat, and for me, a big one.
I was required to get a mandatory flu vaccine. And I refused.
Now, before the barrage of insults or praise flies, I ask that you kindly read through my perspective.
I have spent the past several years believing and teaching the principle that we are not victims of anything.
Not victims of the government, our parents, circumstances, arguments, or disease. Everything we encounter, endure or experience is because we have chosen to do so for one of two reasons:
1) We are emotionally imbalanced and we draw similar vibrations to us (and often our bodies react)
2) We are choosing to have a spiritual awakening that is leading us to a greater understanding of ourselves and our purpose (and sometimes this includes our transition from this life).
That's it. Believe it or not, it is all a choice to benefit us. You may not realize it...perhaps it is a soul choice or a subconscious choice, but it's a choice nonetheless.
And I know it's hard to understand why anyone would choose any difficult circumstance, but we do it all the time, me included. That's what my work tries to do...help people be purposeful in their creation so they can do it from joy or passion and not out of trauma or catastrophe.
If you think back to a recent illness or circumstance that you say you were a victim of~ if you are honest with yourself~ you will probably see that one of these two scenarios fit.
So back to my flu shot perspective:
If no one is a victim of illness or disease, and everyone chooses their experiences for one of the above reasons, then my getting a flu shot is irrelevant.
In other words, if someone is meant to experience the flu (by choosing it), my vaccination will have no bearing on their experience.
Getting the flu shot means that I am buying into a victimhood mentality; believing that my immunity could alter another person's experience (no one can alter your experience except YOU) or that my vaccine could alter whether I choose to experience it or not.
And I wasn't willing to compromise my beliefs.
Now, will I stop you from vaccinating? Absolutely not. Will I promote vaccine information that may or may not be true? Nope. Those are all there to help you make your choices.
My request is that you consider spending as much time as possible working toward emotional balance for yourself and those around you. Listen to your gut, it's your guidance. Don't ignore your intuition. Understand that everything that "happens" to you is of your creation and you did it for a reason, a beneficial reason.
Then perhaps you won't need to experience illness and disease in order to get the message. That is my hope for humanity and why I continue my work. For now, not in mainstream, but the time is coming...it's coming.
Connect with me here!
Carrie, with a lot of Spiritual guidance!
