Blog Post – My Thoughts on Terrorism, Vegas Shootings and What We Can Do – Including a Channeled Message

I normally don’t like to speak out about events such as these, but my weekly reading last night saw this coming (https://carriegallop.wordpress.com/2017/10/02/weekly-angel-card-reading-week-of-october-1st-2017/), and I knew we were going to have even more to be talking about. I even received a small channeled message of guidance last night too, so I knew this was something I would need to talk about. The horrifying events unfolding this week, not to mention storms, hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanos… It’s all becoming a little much, I will admit. What is going on in this world! Do unto others as you would like done unto you. Why must we hurt and kill each other. It’s absolutely devastating. I was shocked to wake up another incident in Las Vegas, after the events that unfolded in Edmonton over the weekend. I ask God why. What is the purpose of it all. In my perspective, it’s all a crazy way we are learning lessons in this lifetime. There was a lot of energy coming in around teaching. We are all learning from each other, and our experiences. It’s a reminder to hold compassion for all people, especially where you feel anger. Compassion and understanding. Not understanding what their issues are, but understanding that you don’t understand their issues. I pray for healing for everyone affected by these events. The truth of the matter, is that there is actually a lot wrong with our world and the way we are living… our food, chemicals, pollution, healthcare, overpopulation, consumption of resources, our monetary systems and our governance… there is something wrong with everything. Nothing is ever perfect, and never will be. Thinking about this, I find myself frustrated. What can we really do to change this? I realized the answer had already came to me yesterday evening, when I jotted down a message that was channeled to me, seemingly out of the blue. It is not something I do often. It was not part of a reading and was information that was important to write down. This was what I wrote down:

“One person… one idea… one small change… can change everything. Imagine one small change you can make in your life. Commit to it. (For example: Smile more at strangers. Be more compassionate when you are quick to judge. Be more mindful of breathing when you feel emotional. Eat healthier. Be more generous. Be more open when you feel shy. Pushing your boundaries where you feel fear. Be willing to forgive and let things go. Etc.) There are so many ways we can make small positive changes in our lives, and these small changes can have huge impacts and ripple effects. We can inspire and teach others. We can show them they are not alone. We can show them we are all worthy. We can show them healing is possible. All with one small choice to put yourself out there. All with one small choice to commit to bettering yourself. Positivity echos, so make sure to stay positive.”

All you can do is better yourself. It starts at home. It’s starts right here in our own hearts and our own choices. You CAN make the choice to make better decisions. You can clean up your life and be healthier. You can feel better. Reduce your own impact on our environment. Grow your own food. Consume less. Get some counselling. Make the decision and do what it takes. Let’s commit to having our minds and hearts in a good place, sharing love and happiness. Not buying into fear or terror. There will always be that one person who is going to come along and do something. Please, consider holding compassion for their faults and pain. Finding compassion when it’s the hardest is where true strength lies. Sending love and staying positive truly resonates, and if we all choose to do that, it’s so powerful and changes the world.

Love you all, Carrie

Daily Angel Card Reading – November 27, 2016


The crystals I am working with for today are Mookaite, Amber and Rutile Quartz . I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Mookaite – It carries an invigorating frequency of strength and vitality, and increases Life Force within the physical body. An Aboriginal Mother Earth stone, it is a healing stone, and empowers one to feel and connect with the electromagnetic energy currents of the Earth. It enables one to utilize these positive energies to increase one’s will and focus one’s personal power. Mookaite promotes an ageless spirit willing to accept change and seek new experiences, and awakens one’s natural instincts in knowing the right direction to take.


Amber – Gives a soothing, light energy that is both calming and energizing at the same time. It is said to help manifest desires and heighten intellectual abilities, clarity of thought, and wisdom. It is reputed to cleanse its environment by drawing out negativity, and to relieve physical pain the same way. It is used mystically to bring the energies of patience, protection, psychic shielding, romantic love, sensuality, purification, balance, healing and calmness.


Rutile Quartz – Is reputed to be an energizing stone that helps get energy moving on all levels. Assists with mental focus. It is said to attract love and stabilize relationships. Rutilated quartz said to be particularly effective for getting things moving energetically. It can help slowed chakras return to normal spin and balance. It is reputed to diminish fears and be excellent at assisting with decision-making processes. It is said that it can also ease loneliness and relieve guilt thereby bringing happiness. It can help get out of a rut in life. Used for meditation, spiritual communications, and dream work. 

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been experiencing a lot of physical pain, especially last night and today. The Mookaite is here to heal our body and soul. The Amber is going to draw out the pain and assist with healing. The Rutile Quartz is here to balance our chakras and stabilize energies. I also had crazy dreams last night, and I believe the Rutile Quartz is here to help understand the dreams, and also give us protection. Let’s see which card I will pull for today. 

Again, two cards wanted to come. I pulled it out and I was sure there were 2 stuck together. They did not want to come apart! I debated on putting one back, but was reminded they are both there for a reason. I liked doing the readings weekly, as it gave a good overview of what we were going through at that time. Doing the readings daily, you do see a lot of the same messages carrying over, as we continue to deal with certain situations in our life. Honeybee is here today to remind us again, to give compassion and forgiveness freely to others. This is really a key to happiness. If we can just let go, forgive and heal, we can focus on moving forward in a positive manner. The crystals are definitely here today to help with healing yourself and regaining some balance in your energy. Another thing that helps with healing? Expressing yourself creatively. That is the message the unicorn delivers for us today. Have fun. Enjoy the weekend. Do something that indulges your creativity and imagination. Do something that brings out the magical side of you. Express yourself through whatever art you enjoy, such as singling, painting, ceramics or pottery, working with crystals, Christmas crafting, whatever it is that fills your heart up. Maybe it’s time to turn on the Christmas tunes and do some baking or crafts. I love the message the Unicorn brings. People always ask me why I don’t turn my photography or spiritual work into a business. I have gotten my feet wet, and learned exactly what the Unicorn is reminding us. We don’t always need to do things for money, money is not the reward. The reward is being able to express ourselves for who we are, instead of who we are expected to be. Once you make something a job, it takes the fun out of it. So today, no matter how you are choosing to express yourself, do so without any expectations and just enjoy the time you spend doing something you enjoy. Let go of anything that is holding you down, forgive yourself and others, and lift yourself up by being creative and indulging yourself! 

Honeybee – To reap all the sweetness that life has to offer, focus on compassion and forgiveness. Compassion means that you have heart felt empathy for the suffering and misfortune of others, yet remain somewhat detached so that you don’t take on their sorrow and distress as your own. Forgiveness requires that you first acknowledge and accept responsibility for your judgments, rather than pretending they don’t exist or professing to always sustain a nonjudgmental attitude. The next step is to release those judgements. To do so, think of someone, past or present, with whom you have judgements or criticisms. Trust that the first person that comes to mind is the appropriate one to start with. Consider two or three specific criticisms that you have about this individual, preferably captured with one word, such as selfish or cold. Find a quiet place, go inside yourself, and look for that part of you that’s exactly like what you’re judging in that other person. It may be a very prominent part of yourself or a rather small aspect. You may identify it by recalling times when you behaved in ways that resemble what you’re criticizing. Once you discover that part of you, simply say to it: “I love you and forgive you”. If necessary, repeat this two or three times and notice any emotions that come up. In the coming days, be aware of any feelings that arise that may be associated with this experience. Practice this at least once daily for the next few days, and watch what happens. Associations: Productivity, community, cooperation, sweetness, love, compassion, forgiveness, rhythm, awakening, nature, poetry, mother goddess, royalty, nutrition

Unicorn – Whatever the artistic vehicle through which you express your most creative self, whether it’s drawing, poetry, painting, music, acting, or any other form of creative expression, make it a priority in your life by devoting some time, energy, and perhaps even money towards this artistic pursuit. Let the longing of your heart determine what the form of your imaginative expression is, but let it be one that elicits passion and purpose. Allow it to evolve as needed, without exceeding to any internal perfectionism about the end product. The process itself is where the magic is. Left that alone be your satisfaction and delight and you’ll be pleased with the results. Whether this avocation continues as a hobby or turns into something you receive compensation for, never do it only for the money. There’s no need to act out the starving artist scenario, but when you make monetary rewards your primary goal, you risk stifling the creative pulse that emanates from the core of who you are, potentially compromising the integrity of your artistic gift to the world. Should you ever be uncertain about following your passion with this kind of expression, take some time to observe children. Notice how innocently and imaginatively they play in their world, particularly when unhindered by social restrictions and artificial boundaries. This is a reflection of the magical child who’s inside you, begging to explore and be expressed. So have fun! Associations: Magic, mysticism, virtue, honesty, purity, inspiration, protection, restoration, manifestation, power, gentleness, humility, healing, unity
