Did the August 2022 Astrology rattle you?

Wow Friends, we survived August! Well almost.

I feel like we all deserve a pat on the back. There were so many notable planetary features including our 4th Supermoon in a row, 5 retrogrades, The Perseids Meteor Shower, Solar Explosions, 8:8 Sirius Rising and Saturn directly opposite the Sun. The energy has been go-go-go and we are all feeling a bit shattered from it!  

I’ve kept my head down mostly because I’ve been working on a new manifesting technique that I hope to share with you in the future.  

But astrologically speaking, everything that we have been going through is for a greater purpose as the old continues to crumble. We are in a period of accelerated evolution like we have not seen before; quite literally upgrading our DNA & consciousness in order to move on to the next stage of our evolution as a species.

The question I’ve been asking myself is how to keep on my path towards greater love & unity consciousness and not slide back down the rabbit hole of doubt, fear, lack, and separation during this time.

A little voice reminded me, Cara, you’ve got great tools to keep your vibration high. Use them!

My tools include:

  • Yoga
  • Making Love 
  • Cannabis 
  • Talking to myself on long drives 
  • Family
  • Divination 
  • Community (I’ve found a great new online Cannabis tribe) 
  • Meditation 
  • Visualization
  • Earthing
  • LOTS and LOTS of WATER

I’m sure you have many tools too. I encourage you to make a list and to use them to keep your focus on what’s important. The stars foretell of a chaotic couple of months to come. 

Here’s an affirmation for you during these times:

I am loved and supported in all ways at all times.

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,

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:-)

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,

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:

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.
