Are you feeling the energetic discord? Does it sometimes feel as if everyone is arguing? Perhaps it's the upcoming elections, or maybe the fact that social media has given us permission to air our every thought and opinion without censor? In any case, the turmoil is unsettling (and unnecessary)!
The first step in quelling this discord is to begin seeking peace and harmony with the friends and family surrounding us.
Step one is to visualize cooperation and open-mindedness among everyone you encounter. Start your day with this visualization. Don't let fear creep in! That's ego. Just picture everyone you expect to encounter today with a smile on their faces, a handshake or a hug, nodding approvals. Your expectations DO create your reality, and it's the perfect time to shift your reality.
Step two is to disconnect yourself from any social media that engages or encourages turmoil. Refrain from reading those posts where people are incessantly arguing or spewing angry opinions. Don't click on the newsfeed that describes the horrors of victimization. Simply remove yourself from exposure to this injustice and negativity. Spend time creating your own peace and harmony: get outdoors, play with your children or pets, see a funny movie, bake a chocolate cake (and eat a piece!)...
Step three is to ask for healing for all of the relationships in your life: family, friends, co-workers, and even the strangers whom you encounter on a daily basis. And don't forget yourself! Remember, when you raise your love vibration, it raises everyone around you up just a little bit. This benefits the world!
Spend some time visualizing this harmony, seeking compromises with others, and recognizing that even the most tumultuous relationships have lessons to be learned. Be honest with yourself and acknowledge them to move forward.
Most importantly, stop living in FEAR and start acting with LOVE. Remember, what you do to others will directly affect what is done to you...It's the physical Law of Attraction. So treat others with love and respect and expect to receive these into your life...permanently.
I have formed a new Facebook group called, "Yoda in Action." It's a safe place for everyone to discuss their Spiritual truths and challenges to move forward with peace and optimism. Message or email me if you'd like to join the group....We'd love to have you. Let's make a positive impact in our individual and collective worlds...together!
It's hard to deny the effects of what is happening in the heavens. Mercury is retrograde, that's the big news. Retrograde is a physical backward movement, and Mercury is literally doing so (along with 4 other planets, confound it!). Mercury rules communication, especially through technology, so be extra gentle with your equipment and double-check any important emails/communications before hitting SEND. Are you experiencing throat/voice issues? The throat chakra is the seat of communication, and may be a signal for you to take a look at what you are saying (or aren't saying as the case may be!) or how you absorb what is being said to you. Is it time to shift what you are experiencing?
Another astrological note is that Saturn entered Sagittarius today. It will be here for over 2 years and the message is that there will be new opportunities for us to decide what we believe and to take responsibility for something new or old that has been hanging around. It compels us to "take charge." This energy is housed in the solar plexus chakra, the area of self-worth, self-confidence and trust (in yourself). What do you feel you need to take charge of, once and for all?
We are also in the final moments of sun in Virgo, which is "expanding awareness". The moon is in Capricorn, which stands for judgment, among other things. Put these together and it is the perfect time to judge what no longer suits you, dump it, and move on to expanding awareness, possibly with a new belief system. Does this ring true? Are there new beliefs that you wish to explore? Follow your third eye-your intuition- and listen to your gut. It's time to let your soul take charge (feelings) and not your ego (mind).
Reiki can assist in releasing any energy blockages you may be feeling in these chakras.
Over the next day or so, take a few moments to review where you're at in your life: your belief structure, your purpose, your direction. Don't judge it! And don't fear that you don't have all of the answers to your questions. Now's the time to be aware of new systems and be open to them. You don't need to know what they all are just yet! Stick with like-minded people, share your thoughts, and tune into your feelings. It is a joyful, enlightening time on Earth right now. Time to expand your belief system and be open to new ideas.
I offer many seminars and information sessions if you would like to host a group in your home to begin expanding this belief system. They're inspiring and motivational!
I tune in to www.soulgarden.tv for daily astrological updates. Chris is quite enjoyable to watch and he delivers so much information!

Let's be lighthearted...literally.
There's a reason we call humor, unsurpassed love and joy as being lighthearted. Our heart chakra resonates when we experience these emotions and they pour out of us! That's why we love being around people who are lighthearted and people enjoy being around us when we are, too.
Everything vibrates in this world, everything! And just as a reminder, LOVE is the highest vibrating thing there is. And yes! Love is a thing. It is tangible: How many of you could feel the love in the room during a wedding or the birth of a child? If you can feel it, it is tangible.
The hurts and insults we suffer in this earthly world cause us to shut our hearts off to love. The key to permanent healing is to be open to giving and receiving love. But it's much more than just saying, "OK I'll try to let love in."
It begins with honoring your feelings. That little space in your stomach (your solar plexus), houses your feelings. That's why we say, "Follow your gut" when attempting to make life-shifting decisions. "Follow your gut" actually means "follow your feelings" and don't let ego from your thoughts weigh in.
If you have stopped following your gut, if you have shut yourself off from feeling how you should move through your day, then your heart will become unresponsive to love. I'm not strictly speaking about romantic relationship love, though that is part of it. I'm speaking more about self-love, love of life, love for all that has come your way. Let me restate this:
If you have shut yourself off from moving forward by not following your feelings, then your heart will not be receptive to giving and receiving love. Period.
And then life becomes difficult, burdensome. We feel heaviness in our chests and that rock in the pit of our stomachs. That's NOT the way the Divine wants us to feel. But the good news is that we have the ability to change all of this.
Shift your thinking to feeling. Ask yourself these questions:
It's a lot more fun to be lighthearted, isn't it?
PS: Don't forget that my one-on-one sessions and group seminars are designed to inspire, motivate and heal. Please contact me if I can be of service to your friends, family or larger audience.
Do you long for society to regain its balance, stop the senseless acts of violence? Find its "common sense"?
Are you feeling deeply affected by the actions of others? Feeling helpless to change it all?
I have some good news! Believe it or not, you ARE able to affect change in society! Here's how...
Take a moment and imagine what the world would be like if we collectively engaged in these thoughts and behaviors right now...at the very same moment...
We'd have heaven on earth.
Archangel blessings today from Gabriel and Metatron.
By nature of the world as we know it today, it is becoming more and more evident that we need to open ourselves up to a new way of spiritually thinking. We need to see, hear, know and feel the divine presence in our everyday lives to navigate the difficulties we are presented with here on earth. For it is in this understanding that we will find true comfort, and be able to touch everyone in our lives with love and optimism.
It serves absolutely no one for you to suffer. It is time to eliminate martyrdom from your being. Accepting and loving yourself, with all its faults and foibles, will allow you to experience self-love that will, in turn, affect others.
More importantly, operating from a place of love allows us to manifest our true desires. This raises our vibrational level, as love is the highest vibration that exists. I know I mentioned this in my last blog post, but it bears repeating because it is ingrained in so many of us: feeling and acting humbly serves no one. When you ask with love, you receive with love. This in turn raises everyone up around you, even just a little bit. And this benefits the world.
Please understand the difference between asking for yourself and being selfish. There IS a difference. Acting selfishly causes you to become oblivious to the thoughts and feelings of others. Asking for yourself- what will lift you up- is precisely the opposite. It is designed to make you whole so that your light benefits the thoughts and feelings of others.
So if spiritual principles pique your interest, permit yourself to study and explore. Reading and communicating with others allows the divine to work through all of us, bringing us closer to that which is meant to guide us- LOVE.
Blessings from Archangel Raziel.
Carrie, with a lot of Spiritual guidance!
