This beautiful hymn is to Goddess Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of good fortune, wealth, prosperity and generosity. She relieves material strife and poverty and showers blessings of abundance.
Who doesn’t love that?
Material comfort and riches are things we all crave. We dream of beautifying our homes, taking amazing vacations , experiencing the luxurious side of life and many of us dream of having so much that we can share and transform other people’s lives too!
I’ve survived bankruptcy and have lived on the other side of abundance for a long time. I know what it’s like not to have much and to feel like there is no way out but when I look around my home today, on this beautiful day of the Summer Solstice, that time in my life seems like a scene from a Sci-fi movie. Today I have so many of the things that Lakshmi brings:
I have material wealth
I have emotional wealth
I have spiritual wealth
I have physical wealth
I am dreaming of a world without poverty today and my Summer Solstice prayer to Lakshmi is more of this for me and more for everyone else too!
The auric field is the pulsing vibration or energy field around a being. It can extend up to 25 feet in all directions from the body and is described as a combination of all the colors of our chakras with one appearing more prominent depending on what’s going on internally.
Circumstances affect the aura and it is up to us to learn as much about this delicate field as we can in order to gain more control over our lives. The higher our vibration, the less chance we have of letting crap in.
I remember ten years ago when I had a very bad car accident. We had just been camping, and I was furious with some other campers who kept us up all night partying. Deprived of sleep and filled with other frustrations (around my finances and other things), we drove up to the late night revelers campsite while they were still sleeping and blasted our music at full volume! My rage peaked as I felt my body shaking and I found myself actually enjoying the power of being able to disturb them as they had disturbed us. On the drive home just after that incident is when my car was hit by a truck.
Knowing what I do now, I feel sorry for low-Cara; the woman shouting profanities and blasting the revenge music. I can’t help but wonder how different our journey home could have been if my aura did not have all the leaks in it. Did I invite the negative experience into my life because my auric field was porous? Did the campers send bad vibes our way? Did I attract one negative experience after another because of low vibrational energies such as frustration, anger, envy and guilt?
There is no short answer to that.
But it was around that time that I began to seriously focus on keeping my aura strong.
My mantra became: My aura is radiant. I am love, light, peace. I am protected.
I would say this with the biggest smile over and over throughout the day until I started to believe it.
There have also been times when the dips in my auric field have been more serious. These times it felt like negative energy from other people was pulling me down and no matter how much I tried my trusty old mantra + other techniques, the feelings of despair and fear were debilitating. I believe this was as the result of Psychic Attacks.
A psychic attack is simply a negative energy that someone sends with the conscious intention to inflict harm on us. These dark energies infiltrate our psyche and weaken us. These times, we may need the help of professional healers/shamans to transmute these energies. I encourage you to seek help if you are under such an attack. Peace of mind and spirit are your birthright and no one has the right to try and rob you of that.
As I prepare for the Summer Solstice coming up, I am working on letting all things LIGHT into my field. Negative energies thrive in the presence of additional negative energies and that ain’t gonna be happening over here at Cara HQ.
If you are in the Southern Hemisphere, don’t worry about less light coming your way during the Solstice. The veil between worlds is said to be thinnest at this time so you have access to an army of angels, ancestors, guides and helpers just waiting to be called on. Use the darker days to go inward and to access the magic beyond what the eyes can see.
If you need any help with your aura, whether it be cleansing or strengthening certain parts of it, drop me an email. I’d be glad to help.
Wishing you love, light and a beautiful, strong aura today and always,

P.S. Don’t forget to salute the big, beautiful STRAWBERRY SUPERMOON that will burn bright in the sky on June 14, 2022. It’s bringing the magic:-)
Although I practice gratitude throughout the year, I really make the effort at Thanksgiving to make a note of my blessings.
I created a Solstice ceremony that has now become a family tradition and it fills me with joy to hear about everyone’s blessings. (You can read more about this tradition in my book, Many Gifts – Seeing beyond the Setbacks).
The biggest things on my list for this year’s Thanksgiving ceremony include:
1. My family: The kids are all off doing their own things and loving life. My parents are doing okay (with a few health hiccups) and although we lost Richard’s mom this year, they are all at peace.
2. My book: Sharing my story is one of the bravest and most satisfying things I have ever done. I tapped into my creative side again, released the shame, and found my voice. I plan to use my bold voice (quite literally) to pursue another goal but I will share more about that in a few weeks:-)
3. My writing coach, Lee Mayimele: Lee is more than a writing coach to me. She has become a friend. But, it’s her work process that I am so grateful for. Lee is a dream weaver! She uses her intuitive gifts extensively in her work to get guidance for each project, each client, each moment. As she receives messages, Downloads, and guidance she very gently shares the information to check for resonance. In my case, Lee’s intuitive nudges were always spot on. It’s the best feeling to know that you are being supported energetically. Lee calls it “holding space” and I believe that this is the future of all things corporate. If we can use our hearts more, we all win. (www.leemayimele.com)
4. My home: Man, I love my home! I also love the man in my home. I was watching him teach his boys his trade (flooring) the other day, and I felt a tear roll down my cheek. I love seeing Richard so alive with purpose. The energy in our home is blessed because we are both pursuing the things that light us up and everyone who comes into our space is blessed by the energy.
Don’t forget that there is a very special lunar eclipse happening this Friday, November 19th and that on the next New Moon—December 4th—we will have the most dramatic kind of eclipse of all, a total solar eclipse! Mark your calendars and prepare for fireworks.
Let me also take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. In between the turkey and fun, spend some time counting your blessings. More will certainly show up.

The world of astrology is abuzz with talk of the Return of PLUTO in the Birth Chart of the USA.
The birth date of the USA is recorded as July 4, 1776 on the day that the Declaration of Independence was signed.
Broadly speaking, this statement was about 3 things: Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness. Pluto was moving slowly (as it always does) and was stationed 27 Degrees of Capricorn in the Second House. On a birth chart, the Second House is related to all things money/wealth/values and Capricorn is linked to all things banking, big business, government and systems. Now, hundreds of years later with its return, we can expect that these areas are the ones that will be activated.
Also known as planet of the underworld, Pluto is associated with:
On February, 20, 2022 (ping*ping*ping* goes my number-wired brain) is when Pluto will return to 27 Degrees of Capricorn. In Astrology-speak, it will be “exact”. So, is this when it will all come crashing down? Well, I couldn’t answer that for a million bucks (and perhaps a million bucks will not really be worth much once Pluto is done with us) but we are definitely in for something BIG in the areas that will be activated. In fact, this activation is already underway.
Pluto’s return will have a huge impact on the economy of the USA as it comes to break down the old and expose what needs to come to light. The impact of the massive stimulus program undertaken to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic as well as murmuring of increases in taxes (which are no doubt to deal with debt/deficits shrouded in darkness) are two aspects I will be keeping an eye on. Could we see the US Dollar take a tumble resulting in it losing its status as the “default currency” of the world? Again, we can only wait and see, but I’m leaning towards yes.
But it’s not all doom and gloom. Pluto’s transit may be destructive and dramatic but the collapse of the old always presents an opportunity for something new. I am spending time in meditation, visualizing the NEW. Maybe you can join me? Let’s hold that vision and energetically drive the new agenda as we hold on to our seats.
What are your predictions or thoughts about the return of Pluto? Drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you.
Have you ever wished you could just say, “Abracadabra” and have whatever it is you desire magically appear before your eyes? I know I have. Abracadabra is actually an Aramaic phrase meaning I create what I speak.
Speaking our desires out loud is one of the most powerful ways to manifest and doing it with others can multiply what we receive.
Last 4th of July I participated in a money manifestation exercise with a group of other women. We were invited to hold some currency in our hands and to speak our requests for more money out loud.
Nine days later the Divine let me know my request had been heard loud and clear. I pulled up to the first stop sign on my morning commute and was stunned to see that the road was littered with cash.
The sun was still hiding behind the hills and I was completely alone. I turned off my engine, gathered up the cash like a giddy little child and said thank you to the Universe for my gift.
The Maya sacred calendar teaches that certain days are more auspicious to make requests of Spirit than others. It works in cycles. Some are short and some are long. A Trecena is just 13 days while a Baktun is 13,000 years.
The date 220.127.116.11.0. 4 Ajpu 8 Cumku is inscribed throughout the ancient Maya area. This date is said to be the beginning of the creation era we currently live in. Each 4 Ajpu day is considered a powerful day when we can create. Ajpu represents the divinity in our physical world. Combined with the stability of the number 4 it is an ideal creation day.
July 4th begins a No’j Trecena and July 7th is a 4 Ajpu day. The current Baktun began on December 21, 2012 which was also a 4 Ajpu day during a No’j Trecena. A powerful time for co-creating with the Divine and bringing the new into our world.
Set your intentions, make your prayers and say, write or draw them. You may be amazed by what you can create. Last Summer my daughter and her boyfriend were dreaming of moving in together and having a high rise view. She put her vision onto canvas. Just a few short months later she got exactly what she asked for.
