Are you feeling the effects of the full moon, a "supermoon" (when the moon is closest to the earth)? It rises to its fullest today, 8/29 at 2:35 pm. The moon is in Pisces, which is a fluid water sign. I'm no astrologer, believe me, I'm learning this right along with everyone else who is sensitive to the energy right now, but I do know that this is a time for the old to fall away and the new to appear. In particular, it is a time when we are connecting spiritually to the universe and understanding that there is more to life than meets the eye. We are also searching for what brings us pure LOVE....
Have YOU been discovering this theme lately? I know many of my clients have! It is pure joy to watch this unfold for so many people.
That being said..it is truly YOUR turn as well! This love and flow is not intended for just a select few, it is designed for everybody! So time to tap into this stream before you wander too far away and have to start running down the trail to catch up with it!
The trick (and it's really no trick) is to JUST ASK. Just ask the divine team for your share. This is not the time to be humble. Being humble is a myth. Of course there is a difference between not being humble and being a braggart. Ditching humility simply means that you embrace the fact that you are WORTHY to receive every blessing that life has to offer. Ask for what you want! These earthly requests are easy for the angels.
Get it? It's really easy. Don't be humble! Think of it this way: The more you receive joy, love and blessings in your life, the higher your love vibration rises. Those around you will naturally be lifted up by this vibration (or they'll fall away), and you will benefit the entire world.
Imagine, your love request will benefit the entire world.
Angel blessings from Raphael and Zadkiel.
Yesterday I posted an inspirational message from the angels @carriebeleno: "Turn off the media and spend that time making a positive difference in the world. You'll feel better and so will the world." #Lawofattraction
I'd like to take it a step further today. During this free time that you have created, spend some of it outdoors! Deep-breathing fresh air and connecting with nature are natural stress relievers. It will also ground you against negative energies and spark new, creative ideas (which the world needs right now, trust me!). Being in nature synchronizes your natural rhythms and allows for you to be "right on time" with everything you do (isn't that a great way to relieve stress?). There's a reason we have the saying, "Take time to stop and smell the roses." It's more than just appreciating the roses, it is vital to connect with nature for a peaceful existence.
I personally have a hard time connecting with nature. I've worked very diligently with it over the last few weeks. I'd much rather "float in the air" and listen to the angels. I prefer sitting on my porch and watching the clouds roll past. But the angels have shown me that laying in the grass, barefoot, has healing properties and I've taken full advantage of that message over the last few weeks. Mother Nature loves to absorb your negative energy, she has a huge heart! Just be sure to give back, even in the smallest way. Pick up some trash on your way back home, set out some birdseed for our feathered friends. That's all it takes.
Tonight is the full moon, so it's NO coincidence that Jophiel's angel card, "Outdoors" appeared for me today. If you follow me on social media or attended any of my seminars, you'll know that I believe that there are NO COINCIDENCES! Everything that appears to be a coincidence is a divinely placed message.
So, just for today, carve out time to breathe in that full moon, give thanks for all you are blessed to have. And each day thereafter, take time to smell the roses....literally.

So let's take a deeper look at Reiki and de-mystify it a bit...
Everyone is connected to a higher source, and I mean EVERYONE, whether you believe it or not! Call it God, source, universal light, Mother Nature, Buddha, or nothing at all~ we are energy and are divinely connected to an energy source. Ask any scientist~ everything vibrates energetically, even inanimate objects.
Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing modality. It literally means, "universal life force." The "ki" is the same life force that you find in "chi" as in Tai Chi. It is a gentle-touch, fully clothed practice that has been used for centuries and is gaining popularity in hospitals and hospice settings.
We have 7 major energy chakras (meaning "wheels" in Sanskrit), which give and take energy all day long from the universe and each other. This is the same energy you feel when you meet someone for the first time and just feel a good or bad "vibe." The chakras are all connected to emotions and vital organs and glands (what keeps us ticking!). When they slow down from physical injury and illness or emotional and spiritual stress, they stop pulling this re-vitalizing energy. We can start to feel "off": our energy lags, we have tightness in our chests, we feel the weight of the world on our shoulders, we can't digest our food properly....you get it (we've all been there!). Phrases like "broken-hearted," "punched in the gut," "my throat closed up," are all familiar phrases identifying energetic hits.
A Reiki practitioner is attuned and trained to pull that universal energy in, out through their hands and into your energy chakras. The energy goes where it is needed most and breaks up those energy blockages. Subsequently, you can feel lighter, more "put together," calmer and able to tackle the world again.
As an intuitive, I am able to add to the level of energy healing by identifying the cause of the blockages and can help you mentally, as well as physically, release these blocks. I also give you tools to continue the work at home. I can identify many of your spiritual team members and guarantee that the world will feel a whole lot less scary when you know who they are and that they are ALWAYS right by your side. Give Reiki a try. It's time to become your very best YOU!
What is cluttering your life? It can be a myriad of things: paperwork, bills, clothing, toys, even thoughts and emotions. The clutter can be found in any room in your home, your office and car, the yard, and most especially burdensome, in your mind.
Clearing the clutter in your physical space will make you feel freer, help you to move more easily, and bring you a sense of satisfaction. Donating items will take those feelings one step further.
Have you spent some time de-cluttering your mind though? Empty out the useless emotions: guilt, regret, fear, impatience, frustration. (Remember, these are just a reflection of a lack of love, lack of joy, lack of peace....) Replace them with love. Frustrated with work? Replace the frustration with love for the parts that DO serve you. Impatient with family members? Replace impatience with love for their presence in your life and what they bring to your world.
Empty out the "hamster wheel" thoughts~ the "what-ifs." It's fine to be cautious when embarking on a new adventure, but doubting yourself or your ability is debilitating. Something doesn't suit you? Change it. You can change your reality in an instant.
Replace the space created with patience. Patience for the movement of traffic, patience for the waitstaff, patience for others, and most importantly, patience for yourself. It takes a little bit of time to nurture these new thought patterns and ideas, so grant yourself patience!
The first step to this new awareness is the biggest though...Clear the clutter and make way for the NEW!
Angel blessings today from Jophiel.
I'll believe it when I see it...the old adage goes.
For just a moment, I'd like you to suspend your belief system as you know it. I want you to trust, really trust, that:
~There is a divine team just waiting to support you. In fact, they already are and you probably don't even realize it.
~That we are all from the same Source, divine sparks blinking away like little fireflies in the night. No one's light is any brighter than another's.
~That fear is an illusion and at ANY given moment we can abandon that illusion and change our reality.
~That what you resist, persists. In other words, accept that which you fear, embrace it as if it has no hold on you, and let it go. It will literally take flight and no longer grip you.
~Know that we are all in this together...we have chosen this lifetime to circle together. And together we can support and make a difference. Or bring each other down. Which do you choose?
~We are given Free Will. The angels can only assist if we ask them to. And they are all around us, I've seen them. But don't take my word for it, look deeply into your own history...that freaky coincidence? That fluke phonecall or run-in? The accident you avoided because you just KNEW not to turn down that road? All assistance, my friends. Let them bring you joy!
~And I pray that you will recognize and SEE the divine in all you encounter so that:
I'll believe it when I see it, becomes: I'll see it when I believe it. Because once you see the divine in everything, your beliefs change for the better.
Angel blessings from Raphael...

Feel free to post some of your favorite inspirational books here. Let's share the joy!
This was my early morning Tweet:
No accident that foliage is green, in tune with Raphael's healing green light! Breathe in the healing colors! @carriebeleno #Raphaelheals #Reikicolors.
Later, driving home listening to Doreen Virtue's audio book, "The Healing Miracles of Archangel Raphael" she says this:
"Raphael says, The more that you breathe in, the more that you absorb this healing energy. This green light knows exactly where to go..."
I looked over and there was a rainbow on the seat...my Reiki symbol for connecting with the angels.
AH! There are no coincidences! Thank you Raphael, for your teaching wisdom and the ability to see and hear it~ a gift that is in each and every one of us! Simply tune in....
Ah!...the love/hate relationship many of us seem to have with food can drive us crazy...but I have an idea that may help. In my teachings, seminars, and individual sessions, the predominant message is always LOVE. Love from your spiritual team, love expressed to those we conflict with, love of ourselves, even love for prosperity! Love is the highest vibrating emotion and ALL emotion is based in love: happiness, joy, optimism, peace, anger (lack of love), frustration (lack of peace), anxiety (lack of joy)...you get it.
Food keeps us alive and provides us with the fuel we need- vitamins, minerals, proteins, fiber- so of course it resonates with LOVE. The key is to choose the purest foods that resonate the highest: fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, organic meats. It does not include processed foods, chemical additives or preservatives, or high sugar contents (sugar acts as a highly inflammatory substance in our bodies). We seek love in our relationships and careers, why not eat foods that support us with this love?
A note to parents: This is especially true for children who are highly intuitive, sensitive to energy, or difficult to calm. Replacing "unnatural" convenience items with the purest foods will allow them to focus on navigating the world instead of processing chemicals, additives, and sugars.
Doesn't this make perfect sense? Then start simply: replace that soda with lemon water. Eat a handful of almonds instead of chips. Reach for dates or raisins when really craving sugar. And most importantly, do the same for your children. We need to be their example and their guides.
As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or for guidance and support.
Angel blessings to all!
So many situations in life make us feel powerless: Loss of jobs, failed relationships, lost friendships, physical illnesses...there can be so many that sometimes we feel overwhelmed, depressed, and anxious. But in reality, each one of these “losses” is actually leading us into a transformational cocoon of sorts: transformation of our thoughts, location, lifestyle choices, or relationships.
Universal energy (whether you call it God or not) WANTS us to be ultimately happy. Teaching us how to share the innate love and joy that is inside each and every one of us is their ultimate goal. We cannot share that love if we are trapped in a dead-end job, in a loveless relationship, not sharing with friends or taking care of ourselves physically. Remember, our thoughts manifest what we believe is our reality. So today, ask for loving guidance to shift those negative, power-sucking thoughts and step into love and joy. I know, I know, how do you DO that when you are feeling lost, alone, or powerless to control the situation?
Start with gratitude…real, honest gratitude. Thank the universe for what is present in your life that is good and pure (this part is easy!) “Thank you for….the roof over my head, the rain for my garden, the clothes I am wearing today, running water” (you got this!). Next thank the universe for the things that you are expecting, AS IF YOU HAVE THEM RIGHT NOW! “Thank you for… my fulfilling job, relationships that let me shine, feeling healthy and whole” (a little harder but trust me, it gets easier the more you do it!).
Know that you are surrounded by your “team” who is cheering you on. If it is in your warehouse (see July’s blog), then it’s lined up and waiting for YOU! Remember that spiritual guidance comes in even the most subtle forms: something that catches your eye on the internet, a friend mentioning a job opportunity, a random idea that pops into your head (it helps if you do not wash yourself in negative media). Watch for these spiritual nudges and do not dismiss them as simply “your thoughts.” (Some of the best inventions came out of someone’s nudges! Think Disney or Einstein). My work has led me to fully embrace the fact that there are NO coincidences in life.
You CAN take back your power, and that’s the most empowering thought of all!
Angelic blessings be with you, my friends!
Carrie, with a lot of Spiritual guidance!
