My Love Affair with Cannabis

I’ve always thought Cannabis is like a woman: layers and layers; Persecuted and revered – full of magic and wonder!  

As you know, I am a big fan of this highly revered plant that has been cultivated for centuries. I have many years of experience in dealing with it. My lived experience is very practical (it helps me with concentration, to relax, and get out of my head) but it is most definitely also spiritual, helping to open my heart center by freeing my mind.  Our brains are full of cannabinoid receptors in areas of the brain related to behavior, thought, and mood. When cannabinoids in cannabis interact with these receptors, they produce euphoric, relaxing effects. 

Several factors can influence the effects—dosage, quality, strain, frequency and method of use. Different parts of this plant also have different uses. For example, I used a CBD concentrate for many years to calm my nerves. 

Before the recreational use of cannabis, it was often used as a tool for spiritual awakening, ceremony and meditation. It has deep roots in indigenous traditions on every continent and has been popular in India since the beginning of recorded history. According to legend, the Hindu God Shiva wandered off into the fields after a fight with his family. He was so drained after the fight that he fell asleep and when he woke up, he saw a plant that interested him. He sampled the leaves and felt instantly better. 

Goddess of Compassion and Mercy

So, how do we use edibles, candies, smokes, cookies or bhang (a popular drink in India) in a more spiritual way? Well, for starters, we have to align with the frequency of the plant in order to go beyond the superficial. Once there is a vibrational match, the next step is to be INTENTIONAL and RESPECTFUL. No one does this better than my husband Richard. He keeps records every season of what he has grown, how he fertilized it and when he harvested it. Talk about respect! 

One of the best birthday gifts I ever received was from Richard’s friend Joe who I share a birthday with. He gave me a CBD strain called Ringo’s Gift. It was creamy and smooth like a vanilla milkshake! It left me feeling grounded and peaceful, clear and focused and that first feeling stayed with me until this day. 

I am sure you can tell how passionate I am about this subject and I would love to engage and share more. If you would like to use cannabis for medical reasons, please consult a medical professional.

Otherwise, explore, grow and transform,

Mayan Wisdom, Cacao & Venus – Blessings all around

Hi Everyone

As you know I am obsessed with ancient astrological traditions. The Mayan wisdom is my favorite at the moment. I’ve been learning about this with a great Teacher for the past year. His name is Mark Elmy and he has a great website called www.thefourpillars.net

I feel very connected to the knowledge on a deep, personal level.

“Maya” is really an umbrella term for many different indigenous ethnic groupings who may speak different Mayan languages such as Yucatec, K’ichean, Kekchi, or Mopan. The descendants of the Maya are still around today, many of them living in their ancestral homelands, like Guatemala. I’ve never traveled to the ancient sites but when called, I will jump.

As far as astronomy goes, the Mayans were light years ahead of us “civilized” folk. They built observatories that were aligned with the movement of the planets. There is a group of three temples at Uaxactún which aligns perfectly to : *The Sun’s rising at Summer Solstice; *The two equinoxes; *Winter Solstice 

El Caracol (at Chichen Itza, Mexico) is another fascinating site. I love the name because it has CARA in it:-). This ancient monument is also an observatory but this one was strategically aligned to track the path of VENUS throughout the year! Venus was very special to the Maya because they considered this bright planet to be the twin of the Sun. They used the information about where Venus was in the sky to plan their raids and battles. I am totally planning to do the same.  

My Western astrology tells me that Venus will be in retrograde from December 19, 2021 all the way through to January 29, 2022. As you know, Venus is the planet related to all things LOVE and relationships. When a planet is in retrograde we can expect some ups and downs in that area. Venus retrograde is not a good time to meet a new love and old relationships from our past often come back into our fields. Any good astrologer would say: Keep Calm and guard your heart.

I wonder what the Mayans would have said about the time of retrograde? Probably something about staying home and drinking Cacao — their heart elixir of choice.  

I love learning more about these things and hope to share some more with you. As the tag line for my website says: I am indeed a Seeker of Magic and Spreader of Light.

Love & Blessings, 

Cara

*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,

Equinox and DNA Upgrade Loading….

Absorbing positive ions from my favorite tree!

Hey Friends 


On September 22, 2021 (can you see my eyes lighting up with those numbers) is when the sun will be exactly above the Earth’s equator. We know this as an EQUINOX. It is the Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere.  

Ancients knew that the veil between worlds is super thin at the time of Equinox and they took full advantage. You can do that too. The surge in the earth’s energy makes this a potent time for individual + collective upgrades/ascension/illumination and the portal to higher dimensions is more open. So, if you’ve been dreaming of some deeper meditation, “Astral Travel” and communication with energy forms from different planes, the Equinox is the perfect time! 

Then another thing that I thought I should share with you is that The Schumann Resonance (also called the “earth’s heartbeat”) is currently at record highs. For those of you who are not familiar with this phenomenon, there are lots of resources online, but basically the earth’s electro-magnetic field is affected by lightning strikes to its surface and the Schumann Resonance measures that. Depression, anxiety and PTSD levels are all negatively affected by the high Schumann Resonance numbers and I can definitely see this around me (also Uranus energy). Disruptions to the production of melatonin is thought to be another side effect, so if you are not sleeping, this may be why.

But here’s the good news, we can find the antidote to the negative lightning charges in…wait for it… trees! I kid you not. Again, those ancients were right when they went out into nature barefoot and literally hugged some trees to absorb the positive ions and restore balance.

So there you have it friends. Come next week, Mother Nature will offer us yet another opportunity to reset, recharge and UPGRADE!

I wish you a Happy Equinox people, trees and UFOs alike:-) 

Love,

The LIONS GATE portal is open

Hey Lions and Lionesses 

From 26 July to its peak on August 8 2021, something very powerful is happening. The Lion’s Gate portal is open. 

The Lion’s Gate portal occurs when Earth and the star system Sirius are aligned. It is called the LION’s Gate because of the Sun being in the sign of Leo (with the Lion as its symbol). Sirius is our second brightest star and she is known for her ability to shower us with increased ENERGY. This raises our frequency and makes manifesting our desires that much quicker. Don’t be surprised at the rate at which things happen. Just embrace the increased energy and sense of COURAGE that comes with this time.  

I have always loved lions. Their quiet, proud aura and majesty are qualities I find very attractive. That may be the reason I have always been attracted to tall men…but I digress. 

Glorius SUN Energy

So how can you tap into this high vibrational energy and make the most of it? Here are my top tips:

  1. Write a Wishlist (This is a magical time for those big goals and dreams)
  2. Pay close attention to signs and “answers”(My signs often come in numbers. I’ll be driving and *boom* I’ll see the same numbers many times in one day) 
  3. Let it Go (Forgive and move on. Release all the disappointment, anger, resentment, and hurt weighing you down. I did a burning ceremony this week. It was so good!) 
  4. Expand your HEART energy(Hug a tree, walk barefoot, make love, sing and play. Do what brings you joy and feel your heart-space expand) 
  5. Speak your truth (Leo is ruled by the Sun and is about expressing our unique creativity boldly. This is a great time for communication)  

I am already feeling the magic of this powerful energetic shift and am ready to step into my power.  

Remember to drink lots of water and do your SUN GAZING to absorb all the energy and light codes. These things raise your vibration – and the vibration of the whole collective – making it oh so easy to manifest magic.

Let’s do it!
