Blessings & Abundance from Goddess Lakshmi this Solstice

Beautiful goddess seated on a chariot,

Delighted by songs on lustful elephants,

Bedecked with lotuses, pearls and gems,

Lustrous as fire, radiant as gold,

Resplendent as the sun, calm as the moon,

Mistress of cows and horses —

Take away poverty and misfortune

Bring joy, riches, harvest and children.

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!

Receive it, friends.

Psychic Attacks & Your Aura

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. 

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,

Tarot & New Earth

It was wonderful synchronicity when one of my clients told me he does Tarot.

I immediately knew what our energy exchange would be. I did his taxes and he did a Horoscope Spread Tarot card reading for me in return. Talk about New Earth principles in action.  

According to Wikipedia, The New Earth is an expression used in the Book of Isaiah and the Book of Revelation in the Bible to describe the final state of redeemed humanity. It is one of the central doctrines of Christianity and I remember that one of the prayers I used to hear/say in church always referenced “the world to come” (The Nicene Creed). In alternate circles, New Earth is thought to refer to The Age of Aquarius which we are currently in. There’s a lot of debate about when this period started but I think that December 21, 2020 at the time of the Great Conjunction is a safe bet. You will remember that this is when Jupiter and Saturn met up. These two celestial bodies align every 20 years but what made this ‘great conjunction’ special is that it marked the beginning of a new 200-year cycle. New Earth to me! Since the 1800s, Jupiter and Saturn have been uniting in earth signs and, before that, in fire and water signs. It’s been about 800 years since the last ‘age of air’. It was predicted that the Age of Aquarius would bring a shift beyond technological and medical obsession and that spirituality would boom again! We would crave a better way of working with each other and a greater sense of community. Growing food, sharing and bartering would become more normalized as we looked for our “tribes” again.  

I was excited on the day of my Tarot reading as I’ve never had a Horoscope Spread before! If you have ever thought of tarot as some dark art reserved for voodoo sessions, you’re wrong. Perhaps that’s got a lot to do with the notoriety of the Death card in movies etc?  My lovely reader explained that unlike my Oracle Cards, Tarot has a set number of cards in the deck. Each of the 78 cards has its own meaning. Once the cards are split and spread, they are open to interpretation by the person who is handling them who then passes that message on to the client for them to interpret further. The same principles would apply if you were doing a reading for yourself. The card would give a message. You would tap into your intuition/Higher Mind/third eye energy to receive and decode and then pass the information back through your more physically seated self to receive the guidance.  

When it came to my business, the card that showed up had a big focus on fruitful partnerships! Oh wow, I thought as I stared at the cards in front of me (which all talk to each other to form a complete picture), that’s exactly what I’ve been dreaming-in. Attracting the right clients and being the right vibrational match to those who service me = Abundance and growth for all! 

For your own reading visit http://www.janakasartandbooks.com


I’d like to teach people about this way of working and living. That’s another thing that showed up in the Tarot for me: A call to action to share my knowledge on the mixed-bag of financial and spiritual tools I’ve gathered over my 50-ish years on Old Earth:-) 

As I feel-in to what exactly that means, Happy June my friends! I wish you all things Gemini this month including magnetism, clarity of communication, and the ability to adapt to whatever comes your way. There is a super full moon on June 14th. Make it count. 

Love

What a Difference a Year Makes!

It’s hard to believe it has been an entire year since I launched my website and entered the “BLOGOSPHERE”. If you have been with me since the beginning then you know I am an observer of cycles. They fascinate me.

Last May the Blood Flower Super Moon danced in the expansive sign of Sagittarius. The perfect day to begin speaking my truth in a more public way.

“Seeker of Magic, Spreader of Light. Do you think you can own that? Walk that Talk?” When my editor and website creator Lee Mayimele asked me that question a year ago, I honestly didn’t know.

This year’s Blood Flower Moon

It’s May again and I have now published FORTY blogs. I had to count them, of course. This year the Blood Flower Moon emerged in the sign of Scorpio, the great transformer.

Have I transformed in the past year? I would say YES and I would say speaking my truth triggered the transformation.

Who knew writing and co-creating had such power to ALCHEMIZE?

Lee certainly did! She could see a version of me that even I had not glimpsed yet. This vision is part of what makes her a great writing coach and co-creator. If you would like to see how she can help you see your best self, contact her at http://www.leemayimele.com.

Thank you for coming on this journey with me, friends. Thank you for holding space for all my shares and for watching as I become a true SEEKER OF MAGIC and SPREADER OF LIGHT.

I am looking forward to another year of evolving with all of you!

Much Love,

Cara

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,

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 

Angel Numbers 222

Hello Lovers 

Happy Valentines Day to you!  Whether or not you celebrate this day, it is definitely a good time to think about all things love, romance and partnership.  

I don’t know if you noticed (I always do because I think in numbers) but this month of love is full of 2s:

February 2, 2022, 

February 20, 2022

and February 22, 2022 

We won’t see the 222 sequence again for another century, until 2/2/2222!

I was so happy to find out that the number 2 is one of the most significant angel numbers! This definitely resonates with me. Angels have been on my mind a lot and it’s not just the man-of-the-moment – that cute naked Cherub, Cupid.  Guardian Angels are assigned to each human being before birth. Some people have just one, while others have many depending on their soul’s mission and unique destiny in this incarnation. 

Our Guardian Angels know us very well. They understand our unique set of challenges and they want to help us navigate them. They also know our fears, goals, and dreams. They take a sacred oath to stay with us, advocate for us, and assist us throughout life. 

Angels love to leave signs for us to assure us of their presence. Whenever I receive such a sign, I say “thank you” out loud. They love to be acknowledged this way, and it encourages them to send more messages. Try it!

Another way I know my angels are close is through smells. It is usually a waft of a beautiful flowery fragrance that passes through my home/office with no other explanation that assures me I have company of the angelic kind. 

I know the names of my angels but if you have never connected with yours, here are some tips:

  1. Journal/Meditate with a clear intention about connecting with your angels 
  2. Ask for their name/s
  3. Ask for a special sign (feather, music, a unique smell) that will be unique to you
  4. Pay attention to little messages that turn up on your drive to work, in the lyrics of a song and see if those correspond with the qualities of one particular angel 
  5. Keep a dream journal next to your bed. Angels sometimes make an appearance in our dreams and can also come through telepathically during sleep to give us important messages. 

In addition to our Guardian Angels, there are a whole range of others on standby. Take Archangels, for example. Archangels are like generals, helping to oversee all other angels. There is one for every purpose and every problem. Archangels like Michael, Ariel, Uriel and Gabriel are the most popular and they love to be called on when we are facing big challenges. Do yourself a favor and read up on the special qualities of each of these powerful celestial beings. They are the big guns, just waiting for you to connect so that they can come to the rescue! 

I laughed the other day when my friend’s son asked her why the first words that angels in The Bible always say is “Be not afraid”. I guess they know us human beings too well. 

Relationships are a 2-way street. What we put in is what we get out. So invest some time in your relationship with your angels, my friends.

I wish you guidance, friendship, protection, and a sense that you are never alone.

HAPPY YEAR OF THE TIGER 2022 

February 1st is the Chinese New Year also known as Lunar New Year/Spring Festival. 

Over 2 billion people celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year and their collective hopes for good health, love, and prosperity reverberate throughout the planet. There is not a place in this world that can claim not to be impacted by this rich culture. I’ve always loved watching the dragon parades and other special cultural activities.

The date of the Lunar New Year is never the same. This is because of my old friend the moon. It usually falls between January 20 and February 21 depending on the cycles of the moon. 

Each year has a corresponding animal from the Chinese Zodiac and this year is the TIGER’s turn. The Tiger is the third sign of the Chinese Zodiac and is considered ruler of the beasts on earth. I am sure you have noticed that many Chinese kids wear hats or shoes with a tiger image for good luck.

A person born in the year of the TIGER is considered to be courageous, optimistic, tolerant, and generous. They can expect a long life and were born to command, not to obey. Famous people born in the year of the TIGER include Lady Gaga, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Queen Elizabeth II. 

I just love the color of my new journal. It reminds me of the red envelopes traditionally given at this time. What a lovely synchronicity!

So what will the year of the TIGER bring for the collective? Well, it will definitely be better than the hardworking, exhausting year of 2021 which carried the energy of the OX.  The energy of the Tiger is always about:

strength

overcoming darkness

bravery

In the days leading up to Chinese Lunar New Year, people go big on cleaning their homes! I’ve decided to join them. Not that I needed a reason. You do know that I find cleaning very therapeutic!? 

It is customary that windows are scrubbed, bedding changed, doors are left wide open and lights are left on (often overnight). People literally wipe away all the old to make way for the fresh new energy to enter their lives and bring with it all the good luck, prosperity and good fortune for the new year. 

If you are thinking of jumping on the bandwagon and joining this wonderful tradition, I must warn you: like Cinderella 12 midnight is your curfew! You must finish all cleaning by midnight as cleaning on the first day of the new year is strictly forbidden in case you wash away the new good luck.

I found a list of some other things that you should absolutely NOT do on Chinese new year if you want to avoid bad luck. I giggled at some of them: 

https://www.chinahighlights.com/travelguide/festivals/chinese-new-year-taboos.htm

Have fun, friends! I wish you good fortune and prosperity. I hope you find the courage to channel your inner Tiger in 2022. You are braver than you think.

xoxo

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.
