The Divine Feminine in Friendships

Women, women, women!

That’s been a theme in my life for about two years now. Everywhere I turn I’ve been meeting strong, attractive, deep, interesting, creative women.

They have come into my life through the doors of my tax practice, online through the study of plant medicine, metaphysics & astrology and most recently through my book.

She found me through my audiobook and a google search. “And I fell in love with your voice,” the attractive Ukrainian woman standing in front of me in need of my tax services said. She was also a self-published author. I know this is going to sound cliche, but I felt like I had met her before. I also knew that she and I would become friends because we just “clicked” in the special way that I’ve been clicking with other special women.

Elena is one of many women I have met just like this over the last few months. I’ve walked into homes of clients and stayed for dinner, volunteered at the Steinbeck Center as a mentor to two young writers and met a soul sister from another life. Heck, it’s even happened to me with my editor who lives in South Africa. It sometimes feels like we are living in the same house because she and I connect via our daily routines as mothers, sisters, and colleagues and intuitively feel one another’s moods. It’s just incredible.

When my daughter, Caroline was getting ready to go off to college, I found myself sinking into a pit of separation anxiety and it affected me physically. I wrote about this in my book, Many Gifts in detail because I wanted to share this with as many women as possible. The Divine Feminine energy that links us all was in its natural state of flow, presenting with changes to both our menstrual cycles and it scared me! It scared me because no one really talked about it. Once I began to open up and let the light into this area of our world, I think that’s when I was able to hop back on the train that is always riding to its destination: HARMONY. The perfect state where all things divine and feminine blossom.

My old wounds around women all started coming to the surface for air:

  • Sister wounds (I’m a twin) 
  • Friendship wounds (oh, I’ve got lots!)
  • Mother wounds 
  • Ancestral wounds 
My twin sister & I. I’m the one on the right:-)

I kept on diving into my plant medicine, meditation, my work, journaling and making love to keep my vibration as high as possible while I allowed the changes in my life and my body to happen. They were going to happen anyway! 

I think that’s when this tribe of women soldiers started coming into my field. My channel was set to the right dial for them.

The other thing that happened – and I only just realized this while writing this blog – is that the women who were not set to the right channel fell out of my world. There was simply no vibrational match for us anymore. Now if THIS is not the Law of Attraction that all the great books talk about, then I do not know what is.

Women rock. This post is to salute them and to salute me because I could not be at this point if I did not have the common sense to recognize that this LOVE that I have for them is really all about the LOVE that I finally have for ME!

Whitney said it best: I’m every woman. It’s all in me.

Beware the Ides of March

Beware the Ides of March! Haven’t you heard that before? I sure have but had no clue what it was about until my lovely husband Richard told me.

This is the day that fell on the 74th day of the Roman calendar, corresponding to March 15 on our calendar. For the Romans, it was marked by several religious observances and was a deadline for settling debts. I was thinking about settling some debts while driving home yesterday when I heard a loud bang! I thought that I had hit a rock in the road but then I saw a wild boar running off out of the corner of my left eye. My instinct to brake saved the poor thing from the same fate as old Julius Caesar on this fateful day in history. (Julius Caesar, the Roman dictator, was assassinated by a group of about 60 senators on the Ides of March of 44 BC Wikipedia). Ah, the Ides of March is tomorrow, I remembered

Wild boars are often featured in Roman history and my Italian forefathers used them as a symbol in several military legions during the time of the Roman Empire. Little wonder my huge, brown friend came running onto my path as if to say, “Beware the Ides of March, Cara!” My guides sure have some strange ways of communicating with me at times but I am so grateful that they do. 

March 15 is also a very important day on the Mayan calendar. It is the beginning of a new ceremonial cycle when new initiates are welcomed into the circle of spiritual leaders to take up their roles for the next chapter. My favorite blog about all things to do with Mayan astrology www.thefourpillars.net has all the information you need to know about this auspicious time. I plan to mark the date with some quiet meditation and prayer. 

I also found out that Ruth Bader-Ginsberg (May she rest in peace) was born on this day in history in 1933 as well as St Nicholas, who is famous for being nice to children but also happens to be the patron saint for the falsely accused:-) Ruth is one of my heroes for advocating for gender equality. She demonstrated that gender biases impact men as well as women and she even used a tax case to prove this.

Some days just vibrate differently to others huh? The Ides of March is one of them and I just had to share.  

May the Spirits lift you higher, 

Cara 

My AUDIO BOOK is done!

Hi Everyone

I want to pinch myself! Right in the middle of one of my busiest times at work, I have just released the audiobook for Many Gifts. Wow! Words fail me.

I don’t know where the strength came from to go into the recording studio when my Dad was so sick we thought we would lose him or when I lost my voice (literally) but I did! Just like when I was writing my book, I put one foot in front of the other, leaning on my team for support and together we let the universe continue to support this creative project.

I believe that this story is bigger than me. Everything that happened (and continues to happen) with it tells me this.

For those of you who don’t know, my story is set in Carmel Valley, which – with all its charm and wonder – can be a pretty incestuous little place. People love to “other” people and when someone falsely accused us of manufacturing narcotics to sell to school kids, our lives quickly turned into a nightmare. My children suffered the most.

This is the story detailed in my memoir. As the title Many Gifts – Seeing Beyond The Setbacks says, I had to dig deep during this difficult time of my life and redirect my focus in order to survive. I believe that this is something we can all do. Listen to my story and hopefully, you will find the courage to put your story down on paper, too. It’s an incredibly empowering and healing thing to do.

Here is how you can get a copy of Many Gifts on Audible:

https://www.audible.com/pd/Many-Gifts-Audiobook/B09TGDF29K?asin=B09TGDF29K

I also have a few promo codes to give away for FREE. Please reach out to me to claim yours!

Thank you Betty White, Martin Luther King Jr & Mrs Full Moon

I was invited to a wonderful event over the weekend in celebration of the great Betty White (RIP).

It would have been a celebration of her 100th birthday had she been spared just a little more time on earth. At the event I learned that Betty had been the first woman to produce a National TV show, the first woman to star in a sitcom, the first producer to hire a woman director AND the first woman to receive an Emmy nomination. How inspiring!

I just love this picture of a young Betty White on Monterey Bay

Then, as I sat on my porch anticipating the full moon on Monday on the holiday that commemorates the birthday of the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, my sixth sense began to heighten to alert me to the special, high vibes in the air again. So I tuned in.

The energy of both Betty White and Dr. King floated into my awareness. What came through is that they had both served their purpose and that I need to keep pursuing mine. Thank you, Mrs full moon! You always illuminate things for me! Now that my audiobook is complete, I DO HAVE A(NOTHER) DREAM! And yes it does involve the big screen.

As always, you will be the first to know more about that when the time is right. For now, I am just letting the first full moon of 2022 carry this inspired energy out into the Cosmic Consciousness where the blueprints for everything we desire reside!

Before I run off and immerse myself in dreaming-in a few other cool things with the help of some good quality cannabis & fresh air, I also wanted to update you on my audiobook. It will be available for purchase in February. I will keep you posted.

I hope you also find the inspiration to follow your dreams in 2022. If you get stuck, remember the words of the great Martin Luther King Jr when he said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” That’s definitely my plan.

The gift of my VOICE

People always comment on my voice. 

I’ve been told that it is everything from soothing to seductive. Friends encouraged me to use it more. But how? I did not know where to start. 

It wasn’t until after I wrote my book that I received some lovely intuitive guidance. An audiobook! Do an audiobook, Cara! The messages were clear.

I was excited to get moving but something strange happened. I just couldn’t get into gear! It took me a good few weeks to realize that there was a block somewhere. It turns out my Throat Chakra was blocked.

The chakras are the seven wheels of energy in the body, starting from the crown of your head and down the body to the base of your spine. Chakras are commonly thought of as spinning wheels of energy. When they are spinning properly, each chakra allows energy to flow and move freely so that we are moving in harmony and alignment but if one of these wheels becomes blocked our well-being can suffer.

The Throat Chakra is associated with the color bright blue. Blue energy is pure, soothing, calming, and healing and connects a person with the divine. This chakra acts as the body’s communication HQ. Although it is primarily the throat, it also rules the tongue, lips, cheeks, jaw, and ears, as well as the back, neck and shoulders. These were definitely the parts of my body that felt heavy and I was inspired to take action.

So in true manifestation style, I took action as though my Throat Chakra was already unblocked. “I am doing an audiobook,” I told my dear husband Richard. “Yes,” I said, “I am finally going to use my sexy voice!” I laughed. 

And in true manifestation style, the Universe had no choice but to give me what I visualized!

Recording the audio was scary. My insecurities and fears popped up. So did a couple of other detours (dad is ill, I got ill, etc) but I kept to the vision. I sent loving blue light to my throat area, used my crystals, and meditated. I also focused my energy on speaking my truth and letting people know how I felt when they disappointed/hurt me. And hey presto, recording the audio began to flow and now another thing on my vision board is done; I am so proud of myself. 

My work on my Throat Chakra is not yet done. Now I am focused on the listening part. That is the last bit of my “work” and then it is show time babyyyy.

Wish me luck,

Cara – Seeker of Magic, Spreader of Light

P.S. My audiobook will be available for purchase real soon. I will keep you posted.

Full Moon & Partial Lunar Eclipse in Taurus

Dear Friends

I have never written two blogs in one week but this is important. I will try and keep it short.

As an intuitive, I am sure that you can already feel the intensity of energy that is building. In a few hours the Earth, Moon and Sun will be in almost complete direct alignment. The Partial Lunar Eclipse will last about 6 hours and this will be the longest eclipse of this kind since 1440. Read that again: 1440! The work of many lifetimes will come up for review during this time and my question to you is…are you ready?

You will probably feel:

  • Overwhelmed
  • Frazzled
  • Tired
  • Excited but nervous 

That’s okay.

My Guides are telling me that if you have been doing your grounding and everything else to raise your vibration, you will be fine. The aim is to transition with ease.  

Please be aware that personal relationships (romantic especially) are going to be affected by the intense, powerful, transformative qualities of this time. There is also big DIVISION ENERGY at play. What I suggest is that you make room in your heart for the people in your life who may not be ready to elevate and shift into higher consciousness. Holding space for them means allowing them to experience their life lessons at their own pace, even if that takes them on a path different from yours.

I wish you love, my friends. I have been feeling under the weather this week but I think the Universe wants to contain my busy-tendencies. I am listening and chilling with my man.

Love,

Cara – Seeker of Magic, Spreader of Light

P.S. As with all big activations, there is always a pre-shadow and a post-shadow period. So these energies can be felt for a few days before and after. Be gentle with yourself xoxo

*Thanksgiving List 2021* Many Gifts indeed

Dear All 


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.

Love,

Cara – Seeker of Magic, Spreader of Light

Rest is not a BAD Word

Hi Everyone

I have a story to share with you.

I recently completed another marathon round of tax submissions and I was exhausted but I kept pushing myself. Do more! Be more! Give more!

It was the evening of the new moon and usually the messages, Downloads and guidance from my Higher Self and my Guides are loud and clear but this time nothing was coming through. My head was just too busy! I tried to calm it down with a little meditation and journalling but that did not work either. …There’s still so much I need to do! What about my book PR? What does the Mayan Astrology say about today? Oh, when will I write another blog? What will it be about? Time is running out!…

I was so frustrated with all the noise in my head that I threw my hands in the air, slammed the door and started to walk! After about 15 minutes I was too exhausted to continue. I did not want to quit but I had no choice as I had not taken any shoes or water with me. So, I sat down and admitted defeat. And that’s when the magic happened!

A deer appeared in front of me and immediately all my racing thoughts stopped. Shhh. I felt something say. Or did I hear it? At first I stood completely still and then gently lowered myself to the ground, keeping my eyes on the deer all the time. I felt my breathing begin to slow down and my jaw soften.

I walked back home with the biggest smile on my face

I learned 3 very important LIFE LESSONS:

  1. Rest and water are basics;
  2. The messages that we seek will find us when we listen;
  3. Sometimes the most special “spiritual” encounters happen when we throw our hands in the air and walk away from the noise.

I plan to do more of that.

Cara – Seeker of Magic, Spreader of Light

P.S. We are now in Scorpio season and there are two Eclipses coming up, i.e. Friday, November 19: Partial Lunar Eclipse in Taurus and Saturday, December 4: Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius. I hope to write another blog about this during November sometime but I am focused on my mission to REST and LISTEN. So I hope to write again soon but if I don’t…just know that I am barefoot in the woods somewhere on a mission Shhh. Maybe you want to join me? 

Powerful Chord Cutting Exercise for Toxic People

Hi All

Sometimes I wish I wasn’t so generous. I’m not really talking about generosity in monetary terms – that I don’t regret at all. The more I have to share the more Source gives me to share. I’m referring to my emotional generosity with people who I need to let go of because they are not good for my mental and/or emotional wellbeing.

I’ve found myself in a couple of situations lately that were sucking my energy. This imbalance caused an environment for opportunistic lower vibration emotions to arise (anger, fear, resentment, disappointment), ultimately manifesting physical pain in my body.

My gut said Cara you need to cut X off! This is toxic, but I defaulted to my childhood response: One more chance. Maybe she has/will change. The problem with that response is that it places the responsibility in the other person’s court. It was time to take my power back!

A friend reminded me that I had all the tools, resources and experience to purge the things (and people) that I did not want in my space. She was right. Sometimes all we need is that little reminder to get back on track. So, I whipped up some AURA-CLEARING magic and cut those toxic chords. Ahhh, the relief was so good!

Now that I am feeling light and generous (in a good way) again, I thought I would share two of my favourite tools with you:

  1. Smudging: Smudging is a great way to energetically cleanse your aura and physical spaces. Traditionally a shell is used to hold the smudge stick made from either white sage/Palo Santo and a feather is used to spread the smoke around. Visualise your space filling up with white light as the old energy lifts away with the clouds of smoke. You should feel relief immediately. I also find it useful to declutter and clear out any physical remnants of the person in the space I am smudging.
  2. Hoʻoponopono: Hoʻoponopono is a Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness. The prayer goes like this: “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.” Now I know this may seem counter-intuitive to be saying a prayer of love and thanks to someone who has caused you pain but trust me, it works. When we are able to release the negative emotions that come up every time we think of the person, we free ourselves of any guilt or shame too. That is a powerful exercise! I also find it soothing to say these words out loud. It fills me with so much love. You can be grateful for the lesson and wave goodbye at the same time, right?

Well friends, I hope this helps you. Do remember that as we clear out the negative, we raise our vibration. Things that are drawn to our new vibrational frequency will naturally come into our field and that is when we can manifest with ease.

I wish you peace and high vibes,

Cara
