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.

What's the gorilla? Thoughtful? Sad? Watchful? Or just sleepy?
Labels. Probably one of the most detrimental habits humans have adopted.
Teachers will agree, yes?
We all had those students who "defied the odds" against their labels and we see it all the time on social media and the news. Recent case in point: Greta Thunberg.
I challenge you to recognize the labels that you've placed on yourself and others.
Go ahead, take a moment. Reflect on how you identify yourself. I'm going to join you.
All labels imply judgment. And if we are working toward a "We Are All One" society, then abandoning judgment will be our make-or-break moment.
I'm also going to suggest that we are all of the labels, some of the time. (I'll even offer I've been Democratic and Republican!)
We can even be opposing labels at the same time: Caring and aloof, compassionate and detached, shy and talkative, lazy and motivated...
It's when we place judgment upon these labels that we feel the negative spiral around them.
"I'm empathetic. He's the black sheep. She's shy. They're pushy," all smack of judgment.
All labels suit us some of the time. And they all have a purpose in getting things done or waking us up.
So my request is: just BE!
Be quiet or inquisitive or introspective or emotional or detached! It doesn't matter as long as it's authentic.
Please, don't judge others or yourself for how you are feeling, and more importantly, don't label our children.
Here's to moving humanity forward...join me!

Someone just asked me what we can do to eradicate fear in society...Isn't that the million dollar question?
I love it, though! I love these discussions and questions. I love throwing out there another way to look at life. And I love hearing about how people are making a difference in the world.
Take a moment to ponder how often fear rules the day in society:
Fear of disease/accidents/trauma. Fear of any government taking/losing control. Fear of a group "winning" or "losing." Fear of not being heard. Fear of not having enough. Fear of war (which is a result of all these other fears)...
The list goes on and on.
(Incidentally, we, collectively, have not evolved out of survival mode despite rumors to the contrary. Had we, we wouldn't be having this discussion).
What can we do about this systemic, fear-based society we have created? (Yep, WE created this, just so we can uncreate it. Apparently we love a good challenge).
First, don't worry about what's going on "out there." All of this change starts with us. Take a look at where you hold fear: Around your family? Illness? Money? Future?
Then take a look at whether those situations are real (meaning you actually have facts to substantiate your fear), or if they're imagined (future possibilities that you have no evidence for).
Now focus only on those instances of fear that are "real." Picture them resolving themselves. Call upon others to come to the rescue and co-create with you. Imagine a plethora of opportunities as doors in front of you and choosing one (you don't have to necessarily know what's behind the door). Feel the solution. Feel the ease. Feel the relief. These positive feelings are your creative tools, just like fear is.
Remember, we create everything we live, and we co-create these situations with others. Create the solutions, it's just as easy as creating the problems. We were just never taught how to do it.
Imagine everyone doing this. Imagine everyone, individually, taking hold of their fears, real and imagined, and creating solutions. (Remember, a solution may simply involve releasing the fear). Imagine all of our corporate strongholds, government officials, and world power-holders releasing fear around winning/losing, control, lack or obedience.
We'd be living in a much different world. It's possible, and it starts within each of us.
Next time you are in a confrontational situation, ask the person what their fear is and identify yours. That's changing the world.
It's the solstice...a natural time of change. Who's ready to be a world-changer? I know I am. Let's do this!
Live in love,
"The Shift," "The Evolution of Consciousness," "The Awakening," and a thousand other names we've given for that nebulous place we're headed...But after my Reiki class last night, I'm certain as to where I'd like to see our future:
I'd like to see every human being enjoying what's right in front of us: Nature, the kindness and generosity of humans, clean water, stress-free living, hospitality, the ocean, health...
Right now, that's not happening. Those that "have" haven't fully figured out how to empower those that "have not" yet (and I'm not pinning this on the 1%. This is for all of us that have any modicum of "have.")
Step one: Eliminate the lack mentality. There is enough for everyone. There always was and always will be.
Step two: Make a difference today, no matter how small.
We can't wait around for the news media or healthcare system or government to change. All we can do is follow our conscience as those structures unravel. But I'm asking you, in some small way, to create a moment of "heaven on earth" for someone else today.
Focus on the difference you can make, not trying to convince others of the difference they can make.
We'll all be glad you did.
"Energy healing." So many questions! Over the last 20+ years of offering and teaching Reiki, I've heard them all:
Is it for real? What does it mean? How is it possible? And this one has been popping up a lot lately: Is it Christian?
Here's my perspective:
1) Yes, it is "real." Everything is real (and not), at the same time. We create our reality...everything we see and everything that happens to us is our creation. What you see as real, I may not. Hard to believe? I know. Why in the world would we create half the things humanity is experiencing, right?
Here's why: We have been trained, or have learned, that when we create trauma, we bring out the best in ourselves. Think about it. The ravaging weather conditions, the mental health issues or the latest government antics...they all have a purpose in helping us decide what is best for us individually and as a society and then we choose what we are going to do about it.
Trauma brings out the best in us. We donate resources, manpower, time, our voices. It's time to allow the best in us to show up without the preceding trauma.
2) What does it mean? Everything is energy. Everything is made up of bouncing, vibrating atoms. These vibrations are what we operate from, whether or not you sense them or realize it.
Emotions are the strongest and most powerful vibrations, from the lowest (fear) to the highest (love). Colors are vibrations, sound is vibration. Nature is vibration. News media? Vibration.
We feel these vibrations, respond and act according to what we feel or sense.
If we are surrounded by and internalize lower vibrations, we will respond accordingly. Likewise with higher vibrations. Think about it, don't you feel better in nature or by the ocean or around funny, light-hearted people? Those are the higher vibrations.
3) How is Reiki possible? A Reiki practitioner can concentrate the higher vibrating energy that is flowing all around us and direct it for you to use for your highest good, whatever that looks like: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual balance, a renewed sense of purpose, connection to life...the list goes on. Ask someone who has truly experienced Reiki and they'll fill you in. No one really knows "how it happens," but we learn to trust the process because we see the results time and time again.
4) Lastly, is it Christian? I've been seeing a lot on the internet lately about this. Reiki is not tied to any specific religion, so you don't have to worry about it interfering with your belief system.
Here's my take on the root of this question: "Healing only comes from God. No one else can claim to heal." Reiki masters and practitioners don't heal. We are facilitators for your decision to heal. That's it. We are doing God's work on Earth (we all are, whether you realize it or not. Smiling at someone at the grocery store is doing "God's work"). That's why humanity was created~to experience heaven on earth (we botched that up pretty well though, didn't we?)
Here's a little secret around this: YOU decide your healing path. And if you want to join with God's energy to do so, so be it. If you don't, that's your choice as well. A Reiki practitioner isn't going to decide that for you.
Our job is to clear out the gunk to allow the options to come forward, it's up to you to choose the path.
Is it with God? Super! Is it with Buddha, "the universe," Spirit, Source, nature, your deceased grandma? Wonderful! It doesn't matter. Those are all higher-energy partners to help us create heaven on earth. Or it can be none of those, simply the desire to make the world a better place. That's ok too, just allow.
The world needs a little bit more energy healing, don't you think? Join us!
Want to be a part of the solution? I am not currently seeing clients (because my focus is now collaborative and not 1:1), but do have a full schedule of Reiki classes. I'd love for everyone to experience and learn Reiki and carry it into their day-to-day lives. Click "events" to see my class schedule.
Live in love,
Carrie, with a lot of Spiritual guidance!
