Product Review – Quaker Overnight Oats Toasted Coconut & Almond

I received this product Free from Influenster to test and review. It was easy to prepare, but so is regular oatmeal. I thought I would love it, but honestly, the milk didn’t steep as well as expected, and the flavour wasn’t as good as I’d hoped. The price point is quite high too. I didn’t really like it much at all unfortunately. I would give it 2 out of 5.

Product Review – Le Petit Marseillais Mandarin & Lime Extra Gentle Shower Gel

I received this body wash Free from Influenster to test and review. I am not one to be partial to a body wash, but I was surprised by how much I actually liked this! It promised to wash off easily, and it actually did! I noticed my skin felt softer too! The scent was nice, I always love mandarin. It was light and refreshing. I am sensitive to smells and this was fine for me. I can’t speak to the packaging, as they only sent these foil packs, but I do like how they personalized the advertisement by using my 1st name. I will definitely consider this brand next time I’m shopping for body wash. I would rate this a 3.8 out of 5.

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

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of August 20, 2017

The crystals I am working with for the week are Rhodochrosite, Shattuckite and Mangano Calcite. 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. 

Rhodochrosite – Dispels insecurities, increases love, power, and improves self-worth. Enhances dreams and imagination. Helps us to face problems in a positive way without avoidance or denial. It balances and enhances love on all levels. It balances the mental and emotional processes. 

Shattuckite – A strong psychic communication stone. Facilitates a stronger connection with your Spirit guides, teachers, and loved ones that have passed on. Assists in the development of psychic visions, intuition, Mediumship and channeling. Assists with reconciliation and renewal. Used to channel information, particularly from extra-terrestrials, and is used for automatic writing. It is said to calm the mind and create harmony.

Mangano Calcite – Connects you to the Angelic Realm. Sometimes called the “Reiki Stone”, due to its healing capabilities. It amplifies energy in a gentle but powerful way. It is a calming stone that eases and heals the heart chakra. It fills the heart with universal and self-love. It offers hope for the best in all things. It is a nurturing stone that helps us take care of ourselves. It enables us to accept love and have self-love, and act with loving behaviours. It is a high powered stress reliever that relieves anxiety, stress and  tension. It heals trauma. It is used to remove fears of all kinds and reduces nightmares.

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been dreaming like crazy the last few nights! I also noticed myself daydreaming yesterday, so it’s funny to see that with the Rhodochrosite. There have been no nightmares either, so thank you Mangano Calcite! 😋 Everything I am seeing from the crystals is very aligned with the astrology and readings I have watched for this week. If you haven’t seen Nicole Oman on Facebook, I suggest you check out her weekly readings and specials. She is amazing and is some of the best guidance I receive. We are going into the Solar Eclipse tomorrow, and this is where we have the choice to face our issues, and decide how we are going to handle our lives going forward. This is a new starting point for us, and it’s all about how we handle it. Are you going to run and hide from the shadows? Or are you going to face them, and embrace them! Appreciate them, for their own beauty and relevance. The universe wants to communicate with us! It is begging us to find our self-love, so we can have the energy and vibration we need to communicate and evolve with the universe. The crystals are helping us manage some of the stress, tension and anxiety we may have going on. What should we do? Take care of yourself. Truly love yourself. Treat yourself. Make yourself laugh. Enjoy something just for you. Live your life. See yourself and your future in the most positive light, and choose to see that going forward. The time is now to move toward that new you! Your spiritual gifts and connection are awaiting you. Choose love always, and you will see it resonate in positive ways in your life. You don’t have to be perfect! Just do your best to make the most loving choices and behaviours that you can! If you are moving in a positive direction, it will continue to spin off in more positive ways. There is no reason to live in fear.. it just pulls you under… we are here to love! And the universe will fully support you when you live a positive life of love. Let’s see what the cards say! 

I’m gonna switch it up a bit this week, and choose from a few different decks. The By The Book card is asking you… What do you want for your future? Do you want to go by the book? Conform to other people’s expectations of you? Or do you want to blow that out of the water and start on your own path of freedom? If the Universe works on the Law of Attraction, then what has been working for you? What ways should you stick to what’s working? What makes you happiest? What makes you feel accomplished? What hasn’t been working? What pulls you down and throws you off? What changes can you make to positively impact your life going forward? I also feel like the book reference is a reminder for us.. to write stuff down, to make a plan. You want to workout regularly? Meditate regularly? Put it on your schedule and do it. Get yourself organized so your future can be that much smoother and more successful. There is gonna be lots of things coming at us, so it would be a good idea to get organized so you can cope with the stress better. As Nicole Oman said today, go about your day and do what you have to do, just do it with joy. The Protection Message of the By The Book card is truly perfect… Be authentically you with no regrets. You have special gifts that await you, that the mainstream might not fully understand yet, but that doesn’t give you the right to shy away from your true power… From what you know as truth. Greatness awaits you… You need to let go of the fear and stop conforming. This is a time of transformation, and I love how it says, “your intuition will lead you through the darkness”, how perfect for the eclipse!! Take today to think about what you really want, so you can make your plans, decisions and declarations on Monday during the eclipse. Weigh all your options and think about the best ways to move forward. Claim your right to be fully you, and be full of love. There is a lot of things going on right now, and they may be quite challenging and stressful. The Eight of Spring reminds us that we can successfully deal with any challenges that come our way. If we plan well, the multi-tasking can be that much easier. This card is so beautiful, as it represents all the wonderful things that are coming! Yes, we may have to juggle and be a bit stressed, but it is going to be because of all the amazing things happening in our lives. There are going to be many wonderful opportunities, so keep the positive energy flowing, and handle what comes your way. The crystals and Angels are helping us heal from any stress, and anxiety that we are experiencing from all this. Keep having faith and trust in the Universe, trust that the light will always return. Trust in the dawn. Beautiful light is coming, to shine on you so brightly. There is no turning back now. Just remember to love yourself and be positive, and the future will be all the more amazing. ❤️

By The Book – 

Essential Meanings: Abiding by social rules; conformity; respecting cultural or family customs; universal laws.

The Oracle’s Message: The Universe works within the structure of Divine laws and principles that provides a framework for human experience and evolution. The law of abundance, the law of prayer, the law of karma, the law of attraction, the law of thought, the law of compensation, and the law of nature are only a few that are known. These principles create perfect order and operate with a kind of precision beyond human understanding. Even revolution has its place in universal law. Human beings, in turn, have their own laws and customs that vary from culture to culture and family to family. Laws keep social order and govern behavior, reflecting an instinctive understanding that harmony is important. This is the time to learn these laws and conform to them, rather than being the rebel and flouting them. When this card appears, submit to structure and follow the rules even if they seem to make no sense. Release resistance, for universal laws will correct any disharmony. Open your eyes to those universal laws, and it will be easier to go by the book at this time.

Relationship Message: Getting along with others entails understanding and respecting who they have become as a result of their environment, culture, and experience. Find the middle ground that allows the relationship to flourish while honouring the individuality of the other person. Play things by the book instead of trying to break the rules or pressure others to conform to the way you want to do them. Your connection will deepen as a result.

Prosperity Message: At this time, you can expect a return on your investment. Whatever you have pursued – be it a dream you’ve long cherished, a skill you’ve cultivated, or a service your called to – will come to you if you’re willing to go by the book. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel to be successful. Follow in the footsteps of others who have already achieved the things you’re striving for. You can learn a lot by observing the structures that are already working. Your creative projects and commitment to prosperity are in alignment with the needs of the world, but impatience may tempt you to cut corners to get there more quickly. Stick with what you know works, and you will attract abundance.

Protection Message: Now is the time for a real change in consciousness as you are incited to revolt. Challenge the structures that are limiting authentic progress. It is not enough to rebel in small ways – this is a call to revolution! Focus on what you really want to achieve, regardless of whether it feels so far outside the box that the established order may reject it. Genius, invention, and transformation are rarely comfortable, and less likely to be accepted by the mainstream. It maybe time for you to say no to the way of your group, take a stand, and make real changes. It could be that the structure of your inner world is alerting you to the need for a complete overhaul. This is a time for transformation, so let go of the fear of change. Your intuition will lead you through the darkness. There is no turning back now. Trust that light will dawn. Epiphanies will surely lead to miracles.

Think About It – This card asks you to step back from your current path or thought process and review the situation you’re asking about. There’s an unseen aspect, and the Angels guide you to slow down so you can move forward with the whole picture in sight. This card can also be cautionary, if you were about to make a radical change impulsively. While it still may be the best path, this card asked you to look into the alternatives first. You are exquisitely sensitive to energy, and your mission is to heal and transform negative energy into positive. However, there’s always a better way to do so. This card ask you to research your options for making helpful changes that are part of your life’s mission.

Eight of Spring – There are many varieties of stress. This card reflects the kind that comes from having a lot of wonderful things in your life at once! You may be juggling a family, new career opportunities, seeing to your fitness, decorating your home… Of course, you wouldn’t wish away any of these lovely things, yet it’s a great deal to have on your plate! This is the card of successful multitasking. If things have been quiet for you, expect to see a big increase in the action. Make sure you have every task prioritized. Whenever possible delegate items from your to-do list to others. And be grateful for all the wonderful things in your life while you juggle them. Our fairy in the image tries to simultaneously manage eight magical dandelions. It’s a lot to handle at once but thankfully the dandelions represent wishes come true! Additions meanings of this card: Being confident! Sudden events or rapid changes. Instantaneous results. Business travel.

Blog Post – Appreciating Guidance

I am sorry I have been absent for the last week, my son has not been feeling great since his last chemo treatments, so we have been taking it easy. I am so thankful that people have continued to “like” my previous Angel Card readings. I just wanted to say thank you, and talk about that for a second. If I come across someone’s reading from a previous time, and I am inclined to click and read or watch it, and if I resonate with it in some way, then I can trust that it was a message I needed to hear now. Even if I posted it a week ago or a year ago, if you happen to read it and take something away from it, it was still meant for you today. Signs and symbols are all around us, every single day. All you need to do is see them and appreciate them. I am always looking for things I resonate with when watching or reading content. More skeptical people would not listen to their intuition and keep scrolling, or take it so literally and seriously (ex: this post was meant for only December 2). By doing this, you breeze past the meaning of the synchronicity, and the message that you need to hear. Listen to the things you feel inclined to do. Lessons are everywhere. Everything is speaking to you if you listen. If you feel guided to watch something or read something, you can be assured there is a message somewhere within it that you need to hear, or a feeling that needs to be felt. This is also how we grow as humans. Sometimes, we just need to laugh and feel happy. Sometimes, we need to feel things deeper than we can even comprehend. What is this moment trying to tell you? How does it make you feel? How can you maximize the positive feelings? How does this very moment resonate with you? For me, I am sitting in my comfortable chair, with my comfy quilt and some coffee, appreciating being warm when it’s very cold outside. Appreciating spending time with my family. Appreciating all the Christmas vibes, the commercials, the movies, the decorations.. Appreciating the beautiful nature outside my window, the sunshine, the trees, the birds.. I have been appreciating the feeling of love that is bursting from my heart, love that I have for so many people in my life. Appreciating all the fun and memories that were made, and what a life it’s been. Appreciating the lessons learned. Appreciating what’s to come, all the adventures, new friends and memories yet to me made. Appreciating what’s left of 2016, and all the good that’s going to come in 2017. Gratitude is a key to living a more positive life. By no means am I perfect… the guidance I receive is probably more for me to learn from than anyone. Gratitude is the space you need to be in to feel deeply and to learn the lessons we are here on Earth to learn. Appreciate the lessons and the beauty, and you will notice more and more. There is always plenty to be thankful for. ❤️ I am so thankful for all of you who read my blog! 😊🙏
