Death is a choice? Really? Who says?
Can't believe it? It's not conjecture or wishful thinking or imagination on my part. It's my universal truth and I implore you to continue reading.
In case you missed it, I'm a medium. I have connected with thousands of departed loved ones and this truth comes from their messages.
Don't get me wrong, their human self may not have chosen to die, but I guarantee their higher self, their soul, did. Our souls know everything, including when it is time to join the other side instead of schlepping around in this world we call life.
Sometimes they are given a choice to stay or go. Sometimes they are shown what is to come in their lifetime versus the magic they'll be able to perform on the other side and they choose. Sometimes they return (near death experiences) and sometimes they go for the gold on the other side. And sometimes their human form is surprised by death.
But in the end, they know we will all be together again. They know that they never really leave us. They know that they can affect our lives so much more powerfully from the other side. They become pure love.
Why am I sharing this today? Because I just released my podcast episode titled: "Making Sense of the Senseless." If I can add just one thing to that episode, it is this:
Do not carry the "what ifs."
"What if" it hadn't rained that day? "What if" she hadn't left the house? "What if" I had made a different medical decision? "What if"...
The worry and guilt that accompany "what ifs" are damaging and paralyzing. If it wasn't supposed to rain, it wouldn't have. If she wasn't supposed to leave the house, she wouldn't have. If you were supposed to have made a different medical decision, you would have made it.
All of these things are divinely orchestrated for the soul who departed. It was their path, their journey.
Lift the guilt surrounding grief. I guarantee your loved ones want you to live life to its fullest while you can because this life is as short as the blink of an eye. They want you to live in love and joy and peace, not guilt, regret, grief and remorse.
Look for their magic. I promise you it's there if you step away from missing them. Declaring that you miss them causes you to miss the magic.
If you need help navigating death or grief, please contact me.
It's my wish that you can:
Live in Love.
Side note #1: For those who think being a medium is "the devil's work," I pose this question to you: My mission is to teach people how to live in love, enjoying every moment this glorious life has to offer, using the guidance system that was created for us: our loved ones, angels, guides, masters and yes, even God. The devil's work? I think not. I've seen the results. (Anyhow, there is no "devil," another one of my truths.)
Side note #2: The accompanying photo was given to me by someone I know and love. It's not photoshopped. And it's not a harbinger of death. It is part of that spectacular guidance system that I, and you, can tap into. Please start tapping, it's time.
My "Chaos to Calm" Weekend Immersion course is now available for those who live locally.
Men are the answer to our problems.
Yes, you read me correctly. Men are the answer to our problems.
For several years now, and particularly after November's election, I've been advocating for the rise of women in power, thinking that WE need to take control of the crumbling structures: government, education, medicine...
But I've had a change of heart.
You see, I've been connecting with more and more men through my Intuitive Reiki practice and teachings than in all my 16 years combined, and I've been witnessing a shift, a HUGE shift. One that can change the face of society, overnight if we allow it.
These men GET IT. These men understand that their limited thinking about The Illusions: income, material wealth, homes, cars, sports~ matter not. They understand that soul-to-soul connections are what matter: family, friends, pets, and most importantly, themselves. They haven't loved themselves in a VERY long time.
They felt insecure and insecurity leads to their need to take control... power of the dangerous kind.
They understand that we cannot continue to live in the paradigm "they" have created.
And since "they" created it, and currently run it, they are the best ones to dig us out of the hole they dug.
The really fantastic thing about these men is the speed at which they grasp their spiritual truths. They don't have to be told twice to give up the guilt. They don't need to hear over and over again that they are worthy to love and be loved. They are ready to embrace the "New Man."
Women, look for these new men. I promise you they exist. Give up your self-limiting beliefs about your worthiness, guilt and self-confidence. Become empowered. Use that powerful voice to encourage these men in your life to step up to the plate. We need them now to declare who they are and what they love.
They are inside the structures and can turn them on a dime. That's what we need.
And men, listen to these women. They know what they are talking about, they know what matters in life.
We need to become partners, no more "us against them." Together we can change the face of the world: from Chaos to Calm.
Live in love,
Want to connect with me? I now offer sessions via Skype for those not in my immediate area: www.carriebeleno.com/about.html
I read an article yesterday that suggested that 70% of the world was swimming around in the muck of anger, fear, hopelessness and helplessness.
That's WAY over the majority of people...and if you follow anything I've ever said, hitting the majority (51%) is what tips the scales to create our reality.
That doesn't work for me.
We cannot allow a world like that for our children and grandchildren to exist. I cannot allow that to continue to happen.
Are you one of these 70%? Aren't you tired of living in hopelessness and helplessness?
I heard that some people won't contact me for guidance because it is easier to live with the pain than to face the fear of "what I'll say."
They're missing the point. It has nothing to do with "what I'll say" and everything to do with the pain they are carrying. That pain contributes to the world's pain, angry weather, the war rhetoric, riots, shootings, terrorist attacks and....
You get the picture.
Don't fear me! I'll give you hope and help with assistance from your "team." They only want the very best for you and the best certainly isn't mucking around in pain, fear, anger and hopelessness.
Why did I create this podcast? To reach the people who are afraid and to continue to guide those who are revolutionizing the way we operate. It's a non-threatening way to be introduced to the miraculous messages from our spiritual teams and a guide to keep evolving up and out of the muck we have created.
Please click, listen and subscribe. The world needs you to:
Live in love.

Like many of you, I read this book about 10 years ago. My mom gave it to me, and it was powerful! It added to my experience in understanding that God IS accessible.
I never would have imagined this book, 10 years later, would make such an impact on me, in a very real way.
Sheri and I attended a holistic expo this past weekend~she offered Reiki and I offered spiritual guidance along with my "Chaos to Calm" and "Following Your Intuition" workshops. While I was leading a workshop, three women signed up for 1:1 sessions. A nice surprise when I returned to my table!
Little did I know the surprise that actually awaited me.
When the first woman arrived, she was so excited! Our conversation went something like this:
She: "I was so excited to see that you were here after I read about you in The Shack last night!"
Me (in disbelief): "Um, what? You read about me in The Shack last night?"
She: "Yes! The author mentioned you and The Night Yoda Phoned as an inspiration in the author's notes! Didn't you know that?"
Sheri looked at me dumbfounded, confused as to why I never shared this very important fact with her.
Me: "I didn't know that and YOU'RE KIDDING?"
She: "No, I picked up the book at the airport and finished reading it last night and there you were. And when I saw that you were here today I just KNEW I had to meet you!"
We proceeded with the 1:1 session, which was quite magical, but I could not wait for the day to end so I could run to a bookstore and look for myself. She promised me she would text me the page as soon as she returned home, but I didn't want to wait that long!
Sheri and I stopped at a Walmart and read the final 20 pages of the book to find: NOTHING. Not a word about me. The reprint had occurred in 2016, so the possibility certainly existed that my book could have been mentioned, but it wasn't.
We knew we had to wait for her text, so we stopped at the local Panera to grab dinner before starting our 3+ hour drive home. Guess who was at Panera?
Yep, it was the woman with The Shack. She tells me again that she knows what she read, otherwise she wouldn't have been so excited to see me at the expo. And promised she'd text me the page.
So we waited. Two hours later the text came:
"I cannot find any reference to your book in the author's notes in The Shack. I think Spirit intended for us to meet today for I know what I saw last night!"
My conclusion: Our spiritual teams: God, our loved ones, angels and guides, will go to any length (including easily manipulating time, space and matter) to make sure we are connected to those we need to be here on earth, but we must follow our intuition, our divine navigation system, in order to see the magic unfold.
One final note: Her last name is Gabriel. Coincidence? I think not. Gabriel is the archangel of writers. No coincidence that the The Shack was the book of choice for a divine message, either.
Watch for the magic. It DOES exist, I promise you. And, as always,
Live in Love.
I now offer Skype spiritual guidance and Intuitive Reiki sessions to help you connect with your magic.

My latest podcast episode was just released, please listen, subscribe, rate and review to help me go global, and move from #Chaostocalm.
If you are at all connected with me or my work, it would be hard to miss the fact that my podcast launched! And yes, you are seeing it one more time.
That's because I am on a mission to share these messages with the world, literally.
I "accidently" misspelled solution today in a post, spelling it "soulution." And that's when it dawned on me:
We are ALL part of the soulution when we tap into our souls' guidance, listening and following. That's part of the messages I deliver in my podcast. Life doesn't have to keep going the way it is~ we CAN live healthy, wealthy and peaceful lives, coexisting in harmony.
While I was in the car dealership the other day, I was trying to explain what it is I do for a living. I simplified it by saying, "Do you see and feel what is going on out there in the world? Well I'm part of the solution."
And in that instant...wait for it...
"Under Pressure" began on the radio. In case you haven't read my second book, that's a song that plays at exactly the right moment every time I need a lift or a sign that I'm headed in the right direction.
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't give love that one more chance?
Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love....
'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word
And love dares you to care for the people on the
Edge of the night and love dares you to
change our way of caring about ourselves.
And late that evening my podcast launched, a full two days ahead of the iTunes scheduled release.
YOU are part of the soulution in so many ways. Please take a moment to listen, subscribe, rate and review my podcast so the world can benefit from these healing, universal truths, and then:
Live in love.
"War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Peace, love and understanding
Tell me, is there no place for them today?
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But lord knows there's got to be a better way." *Edwin Starr
Remember these lyrics from that 1969 hit? Not much has changed, has it?
Nations warring, leaders disputing, terrorists attacking.
Ready to be part of the change? How, you ask? What are we supposed to be doing to affect them? We are few, they are many!
And I argue, don't be fooled: WE are the many, THEY are the few.
It is time to stop the war. Right now, today, and everyday...forevermore.
Stop feuding with your neighbor. Call a truce with your siblings. Stop blaming your parents for whatever injustice you think they incurred. You have brought these experiences to yourself to share the love your soul has to offer, so start sharing.
We must stop believing in a society where there is "right versus wrong." "Right versus wrong" leads to "right conquers wrong" and that leads to violence. Period.
There is only our perspective. That's it. And our perspective needs to change immediately if we are going to impact our future for the better.
Do your part, end any and all wars you are now engaging in. For your health and the health of our future.
Live in Love,
*Please use the links and follow me on Facebook and Twitter, and on Instagram @carriebeleno. I have exciting projects that I'm launching shortly to help move the world from "Chaos to Calm" and I need YOU to be a part of the shift!
"Joined together for a common purpose." That's the definition of united.
Are we joined together for a common purpose?
"Yes!" you say. We are joined together in religious beliefs, politically leanings and standing up for causes. We join together to march, protest, fundraise and pray.
But I ask you, have we truly identified what our common purpose is? The common purpose of our lives here on Earth?
I assure you, it's not to make money, graduate college, land that job, find a spouse or pursue the American dream.
It's to allow our souls to share the love they have to offer. That's it.
We use these tools~ the jobs, degrees, families, friends, income~ to help us determine what this love is. Problem is, we've made these our determining factors.
The determining factor is how we feel. Our emotions bring to us experiences that support and validate these emotions. In other words, if you are feeling anger or frustration, these emotions will bring to you more situations that allow you to feel anger or frustration. Is that what you want? Probably not, and it's definitely not what I want.
Feeling outrage over the latest incident with United Airlines? Feeling sympathy, or even empathy, for that elderly man who was violated? Please do not carry these feelings into your day, for you will continue to create more situations that allow you to experience outrage and frustration.
And you will create them for all of us.
It's time to be united in the only cause that truly matters, humanity's declaration of our soul's love.
Declare it today. Don't waste one more minute in anger or fear or frustration. Declare what you love, no matter how seemingly insignificant. The universe can't tell the difference between the love of your child or the love of a cheeseburger. It's all LOVE.
Unite with me, for our common purpose. And remember,
Live in Love,
I'm not being pretentious or ambitious with this statement~I'm being factual.
I CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.
And so can you.
Don't buy into the myth that the collective is stronger or more powerful than the individual.
Here's why: Every soul was created with that same Divine spark~Big Bang or "The 6th Day" or whatever you prefer to call it~ and each soul has exactly the same energy and the same brilliance. Despite appearances, no soul is more powerful or special than any other.
It's what we do with that brilliance while we're here on Earth that makes the difference. Our souls do not age, they expand. Enlightenment (the absence of desire or suffering) is what expands our souls.
What are you doing to expand your soul? Do you spend your time worrying or complaining? Are you succumbing to the fear-based rhetoric of the media? Are you swimming in illness and injury?
Love is the highest, most glorious vibration there is. I guarantee that you are not emitting love when you worry, complain, or discuss your dis-ease. The love vibration that we emit (and every lower emotion as well), radiates from us and bangs into everyone we encounter. It shifts their energy.
And if we spend even just one moment exchanging a smile or kind word (words have energy, too), it amplifies that shift.
Imagine for a moment if everyone engaged in this shift at exactly the same time...emitted just a moment of pure love for what is around them.
The world would change.
So be that ripple effect in the world today. Allow your light and love to bang into someone else. Don't complain, worry, or succumb to fear.
If you have difficulty doing so, please give me a call. It is my mission to change the world with my thoughts, feelings, words and actions. I can teach you how to do the same.
It's time to,
Live in Love.
What does that mean to you, exactly? "Be a man" or "Man up"? Get tough? Deal with it? Were you told this as a child, or worse, as an adult?
Men, this blog is for you.
The illusion is over. The rules in the "game of life" have been changed. There's no need to act tough, save the day, be stoic, or hide your feelings.
We need you. Women, children, pets, the world, needs you. We need you to act with integrity. We need you to be authentic. We need you to say what your heart wants and, most importantly, for you to act on what your heart wants.
When we ignore our hearts (ie: our soul's navigation) we create The Gap. The Gap between our true selves and our physical selves. And in The Gap is frustration, anger, impatience, self-loathing, fear, sadness. When we don't realize why we carry these feelings, we lash out and act out of integrity.
We escape: Alcohol, drugs, food, obsessive exercise, infidelity.
Please, notice the signs. Notice how you are feeling physically: Pain? Exhaustion? Anxiety? Insomnia? Illness?
Living in integrity means listening to your heart and following it, no matter what that looks like. The world doesn't need you to be tough or brave or stoic or "A Man."
The world needs you to be your authentic self.
Please contact me if you need help locating YOU.
Live in love,
PS: If you are saying these words to your sons, please stop. I see the damage that they cause- so much damage that it's become my life's work...
I woke up with these lyrics playing in my head, and now you probably have them, too! Sorry for the earworm. But I need them to illustrate a dream I had last night.
In this dream, I was alone in an apartment building. I knew that everyone was dead, except for a few random people (fortunately, it was not a gory dream).
I knew that I had been given a choice: to commit suicide or to wait until the air "changed." Not sure if the oxygen was going to disappear or some toxic fume would arrive, but nonetheless, I was going to be unable to breathe.
I knew that everyone was gone because they chose the suicide route.
As I pondered this, clarity arrived. I knew in my heart that it was a lie. The air wasn't going to change, I wasn't going to die. That everyone "left" because they believed the myth and became afraid and followed what they were told.
I made it my mission in my dream to find the rest of the living people to fill them in on the "secret" I now knew.
I know that this dream was not a coincidence; that it illustrates my mission here on Earth: to awaken people from the illusion, from the "game of life."
Despite what you hear, despite what you may feel from society, the world is NOT coming to an end. But the end of your fear is right around the corner, if you believe:
Live in love,
