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.

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,

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

ABRACADABRA – I CREATE WHAT I SPEAK

Hey Friends!

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 13.0.0.0.0. 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.

HAPPY MANIFESTING!

SUMMER SOLSTICE MAGIC

The Summer Solstice has always been one of my favorite days of the year. School is out. Time to head to our favorite alpine lake for a family vacation. Time to CELEBRATE and RECONNECT.

The word Solstice derives from sol (Sun) and sistere (standing still). This is because at the Summer Solstice, the sun appears to stand still.

Perhaps this is why it feels like the perfect time to slow down and SAVOR THE SWEETNESS OF LIFE.

Memories of flower crowns and May poles from my childhood inspired me to find a local florist to create bouquets for every room of our vacation rental last Summer Solstice. Such a decadent splurge and the perfect décor for our celebration.

CELEBRATING WAS WHAT I HAD MOST ON MY MIND. My daughter and her boyfriend had both just graduated from University. There had been no ceremony to honor their achievements. The trip to Europe that they had saved and planned for evaporated before their eyes as the world went into lockdown.

Yet, we still had our vacation to look forward to and I was determined to make it MAGICAL.

The magic started happening before we even arrived. The practical mini-van that I had reserved was not available. It would be replaced with the Suburban that I had wanted to rent, but could not afford. I had placed my order and the Universe had delivered.

A few days later, Mother Earth yielded even more MAGIC.  While hiking, my husband found several Lemurian crystals. They were literally lying in full view. Right in the middle of the trail! He had the loveliest one mounted and made into a necklace for me. Magical indeed.

MAGIC IS HAPPENING ALL THE TIME. We just need to look for it. The Summer Solstice is a time when the veil between the material and spiritual worlds is said to be much thinner. It’s a great time to light a bonfire or a candle and observe the magic of the season.

Wishing you and yours a MAGICAL SOLSTICE and a SUMMER filled with JOY and LEISURE.
