I'm going out on a limb here by thanking 2016, I know. There's a lot of 2016 bashing happening both on social media and in quiet circles. I'd like to put my spiritual teacher hat on and present a side that perhaps you haven't considered.
2016 adds to a 9. A 9 year represents the end of a cycle, a year of completion.
Someone out there is thinking, "Yes, I know! See, the year of death!"
But I beg to differ.
We needed to complete this cycle as a human race. We could not, cannot, move forward without a completion year.
The number 9 is about endings. And we are collectively ending some really HUGE things in our world!
As I see it, all of the major societal structures are ending as we currently know them: governmental, medical, educational, financial, religious.
People are questioning everything! And that's exactly the way it needs to be to facilitate change in the structures.
Have patience, my friends, great changes are coming our way! Do not fear them! It is imperative that they occur to move humanity forward.
2017 adds to a 1: a birth year, new beginnings. As we all know, birth doesn't occur without some pain and stretch marks. I promise you, your status quo will be rocked.
But collectively, this needs to happen for us to stand up as a human race
to declare who we are and what we love: the reason we are all here!
Personally, I lost loved ones, too. 2016 also brought an end to my old life as I shifted my personal structures and opened Beleno Spiritual Healing Center. Growing pains? You betcha! But I know they are absolutely necessary as I am ready to assist with your personal (and the world's) birthing pains.
And as far as all of those celebrity deaths go? They aren't sacrifices. Those souls departed willingly and joyfully! They know that they can affect more change and give us all more support from the other side than they could in their human forms. Call upon them! They are ready to assist us in our magical personal and structural transformations.
Rejoice, dear ones! You chose to be here at exactly this time and space so you could take part in these humanity-changing moments.
Move forward in 2017 fearlessly because everything is happening exactly as it needs to, and from my perspective:
IT IS GLORIOUS!
Live in love.
This has been quite the year, hasn't it? Ready to plant some new seeds? I am! I have some wonderful opportunities in the works!
Let's play with the numbers:
2016 adds to 9: completion and endings while reflecting on lessons learned.
2017 adds to 1: a fresh, new cycle for planting seeds of intention, with results that will last for 9 years. (9 years! Let's make sure we all choose wisely!)
My Divine purpose and intention is to reach as MANY people as possible with my empowering Reiki energy work and healing messages.
To that end, I have new prices for my Intuitive Reiki work beginning January 1:
$98 for a 70 min. session and $55 for a 40 min. session.
I chose $98 intentionally~98 adds to 17 (the new year) and 8: guiding us to focus upon our Divine purpose and act upon it, with an infinite flow of abundance for accomplishing our life's purpose.
55 signifies "out with the old, in with the new." Neat, huh?
You can take advantage of the new prices before 12/31 (to be held on or before January 31) and receive a voucher for any of my seminars or mini Reiki sessions, a $25 value! You can use it or give it to a loved one. Email
firstname.lastname@example.org, PM me, or call 610-419-4979. I'll also be at the Center Friday from 11-5. Stop in!
So blessed to be with you all on this amazing journey...
Live in love.
Here are a few upcoming events of mine that you can use the voucher for, or you can save it for later events:
I've been trying to find the words to share for quite some time, (since the election, really) but now I finally need to speak my truth about the world. Your world. Our world.
I left a $92,000 a year job to be here with you, right now. I know it's not your problem, and go ahead, call me crazy. Lots of people have. I'm not going to lie, I sure could use that income most days. But I realize that money isn't the important part of my journey.
The messages are. The universal truths. The energy that keeps us all alive and kicking. The stuff of life that brings us joy and heartache. THAT'S where I'm focusing my time, energy and life.
And I need your help.
Because I'm doing this for YOU. Yes, YOU. You whom I haven't even met yet, the one reading this blog.
Because YOU matter in my world. See, we ALL matter to each other. And that's the point we're missing.
When you declare on social media, "We are all doomed," or "Life is over as we know it," or any one of the million depressing, angry, and fearful statements circulating right now, you affect the world. There's no coincidence that we're seeing a rise in earthquakes right now. Think about it. Where do you think all that angry energy goes?
That's because what you declare becomes your truth, and your truth becomes the world's reality. We're all connected. Truly, honestly. It's called an energetic ripple effect, and we are all standing in the same pond.
So, please, make my job easier. Watch your ripples. Be careful what you declare your world to be, because it's my world, too.
Collectively, souls choose to gather together to help us see the "light," to help us declare who we are and what we love. Sometimes they're on a mission, like me, and sometimes they choose more drastic measures. How many more souls will need to depart before we say, "Enough, WE GET IT?" No more fear, anger or depressing statements about our doomed world.
Because it's NOT DOOMED. I won't let it be. It's my mission, it's why I teach what I teach and reach who I reach.
Please help me.
Live in love,
I have some news for you. This is good news for a change! You won't believe it at first, but bear with me. I'm about to shatter a myth that we have all subscribed to at one point or another. It is particularly important news for the workplace. Shattering this myth will allow a feeling of freedom that you may never have experienced...
Ready for it?
There is no "us against them."
It's a myth, a myth of mythical proportions, created by US. (US as in "you and I", not US as in the United States, just in case you thought I forgot the periods.)
But of course it's "us against them," you say! It's government against the little people. It's believers (name your belief) against non-believers! It's Republicans against Democrats! It's war! War against drugs! War against cancer! War against taxes! War against terrorism!
Exhausted yet? I know I am.
Everything that appears to be at odds with what you believe is here on purpose, and WE put it here.
We as in individuals, but also WE as the collective. And it's here for one reason only:
To help us declare who we are and what we love.
When you ponder taxes, or war, or drugs, or the government, do you fully and completely FEEL and identify what you love?
I do. I know I'd love a world without drug conflict or war, where I pay my fair share of taxes that are reasonable, that contribute to whatever we need as a society to be productive, healthy and secure. I know I'd love our new government to make smart decisions from their hearts that benefit us all.
Mission accomplished. The "us against them" mentality mission is complete.
Now to move forward. One of the places to start is in the workplace:
Business leaders and models, lead from your heart. Tell your employees that there is no lack, that's there's plenty of time, resources, money, connections. Fake it until it becomes your truth if you have to. Take them, and yourself, out of the pressure cooker. After all, that's what you want the government to do with us, right?
The collective needs to get the ball rolling.
Lead with your heart. What feels right: morally, economically, physically, emotionally?
Be the change you want to see in the world. Bust the myth wide open.
It's time. We're ALL here for the same reason.
Live in love,
Want to join me for a Q and A on these principles and set some myth-busting New Year's intentions? Click here:
Scrolling through Facebook and the internet, I see a lot of wishes this time of year for peace on Earth, world peace. Happiness for everyone, love and joy to one and all.
It's never going to happen.
We, as a human race, just don't "get it" yet. Certainly you see that. We "smh" about this atrocity or that injustice and wonder when it's all going to change.
It can't change.
Ah, there is an unless!
Unless...you, WE, create that change. Starting right now, this instant.
Surely you want peace on Earth, right? Then start being peaceful. We need to BE what we expect to see in the world. Don't post on Facebook how angry you are that the doctor made you wait 30 minutes. Don't post photos of the license plate of the guy who cut you off. Refrain from posting every fear, worry and anxiety that keeps you up at night.
Outraged that clothing is imported from Bangladesh? Then buy your clothes from a source that brings you peace. Don't focus on your outrage.
Sick and tired of waiting for that late appointment? Then switch to an office that brings you peace. Don't focus on being sick and tired.
Upset about something that happened to your child at school? Be the role model and handle it with peace. Don't focus on the upset.
Let your anger lead you to peaceful action, then LET IT GO. (Disney was right on the money with this one).
What we put out into the world comes back to us tenfold. It's the Law of Attraction. But it not only comes back to you tenfold, it comes back to each and every one of us tenfold as well. We are all energy, and we are all connected energetically. It's quantum physics.
Your feelings and words are energy. And the Law of Conservation states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only converted from one form to another.
Do you want your angry rantings to be converted into energy that will affect your family? Of course not. But it goes deeper than that. You may spare your family by concealing your outward anger, but you can't keep it from yourself, therefore you can't keep it from having a ripple effect on the world.
Thus inhibiting world peace.
"Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me" aren't just seasonal song lyrics from 1955. They're true. Peace MUST begin with us, and the sooner we realize that, the faster we'll get to experiencing
Live in love,
Carrie, with a lot of Spiritual guidance!
