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,

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.
Carrie, with a lot of Spiritual guidance!
