Change this.. And Change Your Whole World

Collette-Baron-Reid-change-this-and-change-the-world

Can our minds really shape our outer world? Yes, our thinking definitely affects a lot of things. If you think and believe you are unworthy (of love, prosperity, achievement etc.) your thoughts, even the random ones will reflect that, and your behaviors and choices will follow.


What we think about often enough will solidify, make a neural network in our brains (straight up science). What happens is that we essentially turn on an automatic pilot set to seek out evidence in the outer world of what we repeat internally. The Law of Abundance states that everything is possible at all times!


You may identify with my dating story. In my early years of dating I kept attracting men who would victimize me or betray me, most were unfaithful, and some were violent and abusive. I’ve shared my #metoo story about how I was raped, molested when I was little, and how shame took up residence inside me. I didn’t believe I was worthy of love, although I didn’t know that at the time, I saw myself as a victim and deep down I was terrified of intimacy. The outer world presented me with many ways to keep this story alive. I only noticed the bad boys.

How 5 minutes of this practice can Change Your Life

Colette-Baron-Reid-How-5-Minutes-of-this-Practce

Every New Year I wake up with so much gratitude and awe, and think of that fateful night in 1985, when I finally hit bottom, took my last drink, my last drug, and surrendered to my Higher Power. After all you can’t pray for deliverance and not let go. At some point the bottom rises to meet you. Then there is one moment of choice. We choose our future in these kind of moments, where we stand at the turning point and leap into the unknown or go back to the painful familiar.


Today marks 32 years of continuous sobriety from drugs and alcohol and its true that a lifetime has passed one day at a time. Who I was then, is not who I am today.


What I learned by being sober was first to live one day at a time. Every 24 hours if I lived with humility and gratitude I would be choosing a new future. It was in following a spiritual program that I learned that these principles can be applied to any struggle, anything at all that harms or victimizes. Addiction is a symptom of a spiritual and mental malaise at its core. Gratitude is the abracadabra that swings the door to a new world wide open.

As We Clean up the Dirt… Let There Be Light…

colette-baron-reid-clean-as-we-clean-dirt-into-light

This week is an interesting one given that we begin with a serious New Moon on Monday, providing us an opportunity to make intentions for how to say goodbye to 2017, real and clear.


Then we close out the week with the Longest Night (in the northern Hemisphere/ opposite Down Under) followed by the Winter Solstice where we celebrate the rebirth of the Light.


Speaking of which I’m going to do a special Facebook Live on Friday the 22 at noon EST to celebrate- yes I am doing readings! You must come!


Symbolically this season is so rich with metaphor, that if you pay attention, you really can see the connections between all of it. Yes we’re still being invited to clean up the dirt in our lives in the last week of mercury retrograde, refusing, reassessing, re-calibrating, revisiting, repairing and reinforcing. Even though this is the symbolic time of greatest darkness there is so much Light being called into the world right now it’s amazing.

Your Delicious Drama Free Zone for December

Collette-baron-reid-drama-free-December

So has this mercury retrograde brought some unwanted drama to your life? Do you want to know how to create a delicious drama free zone for December?

Mercury retrograde in the chatty unfiltered sign of Sagittarius is one where you’ll notice a lot of people (maybe even you?) opening their mouths, and typing ALL their feelings and opinions without any thought or censorship at all, any time anywhere. Can you hear the cacophony of thoughtless angry noise in the energy of the world? What about inside your head?

Entitlement, resentments, and a sense of not enough are thought viruses that can infect a crowd faster than you can sneeze. The question now is what do you believe in your heart and soul, and can you bring compassion and understanding to that which you most fear or loathe? Can you take on the friendly curious nature of Sagittarius and see this all as an adventure traveling through Uncharted seas, co-creating with Spirit and discovering treasure as you go?

How to celebrate #Giving Day!

makeadifference

Ok, can I just say how much I LOVE what today means? Not sure if its everywhere in the world but it is an important day in the USA and Canada.


I’m not sure who made it official but it’s the day of the year where charities call out to us to help their causes.


There are so many charities that depend solely on our donations to survive and to make a difference in the world. Today is that day when we really can make a difference.

Jingle Bells – Be Here Now

colette-baron-reid-jingle-bells-be-here-now

Have you noticed that Christmas seems to be way too early every year? I was with a couple of my friends on Saturday night at a mall and we were remarking how eerie it was that everything was all decked out for Christmas already.


Everywhere we looked was tinsel, and glittery ornaments and holiday smells and there was music like Jingle Bells and other joyful happy holiday songs playing everywhere.


To be honest I love all of it.

#metoo Out of the Silence Comes Dignity and Healing

Colette-Baron-Reid-Silence-to-Dignity

I like to blog about things related to how we co- create reality, and solutions that can help us become the person we want to be. I am always focused on this and feel it’s important to know there is a spiritual solution for every problem. I also only write about what I know and what I’ve overcome. I share only from experience. I have to keep it real, or you’re going to be reading fluff, and if you’re anything like me you can smell BS a mile away. Not into stinky.


I’ve been watching the trending topic of the #metoo movement that has set fire to Hollywood in recent weeks. To be honest I have taken my time rather than jump in because I think it’s a very sensitive issue, and yes I tend to stay away from hot button issues (like politics and religion too) because they can be divisive, and it’s not why people read my blogs.
I have been called to talk about this regardless.


For those of you that don’t know what I’m talking about in a nutshell it began with movie mogul Harvey Weinstein being called out for sexual abuse, and then an avalanche of women began to share their stories, and then some men came to add their voices too.
In the past few weeks #metoo has been shared millions of times on social media as women and men who have experienced sexual abuse from people in power have spoken out about their secrets and shame, and how the experience affected them.


Make no mistake this form of abuse is soul destroying and will, for some people, create an internal set up, a commitment to maintain all manner of coping behaviors that can take a lifetime to unravel. Not talking about it, keeping it a secret is the first way in which we rob ourselves of our true nature of joy and abundance. Our dignity and self worth depends on sharing and healing.


Last night my husband and myself watched a movie called Wind River and there is a rape scene in the film that brought back so many memories, I knew it was time to add my voice.

Big Moon, Big Magic

Colette-Baron-Reid-Big-moon-big-magic

This week as a follow up to last week’s blog is a continuation of our manifesting magic discussion which began with me asking you “ who do you want to become?” and then giving some tips of how to practice being that person ( in the guise of more questions). Remember that by choosing to consider who you would need to become to live your dream life and “ dressing up” in that “costume” it would help set this in motion for you. That would include imagining how you would dress, stand, talk, what you would think about, etc. if you could see yourself there already.


So remember when I said the veils between the manifest world and the hidden realms are thinnest in these 2 weeks? These next few days are most important- not just to connect with our loved ones in Spirit, but to really get into turbo charged co-creating! Especially since we are also coming up on the Taurus Full Moon this Friday. ( but more on that later).


Note it is super important to consider what you give attention to this week as it can expand in front of you as if you ordered it up on a menu! (and in pretty funny ways too)

I Couldn’t Breathe… and then I Remembered ( tips for staying sane in these insane times)

colettebarronreidblog

This past week has been a blur.


Have you ever felt that you’ve been swept up in a tornado of feelings that you can’t control and don’t even know the source?


It’s been surreal if you think about everything that has happened in the past month alone- a relentless tsunami of suffering and tragedy- all of it real, all of it needing to count.


Which do you pick? The devastation in the Caribbean? Texas? Louisiana? Las Vegas? Or should we look overseas?


I live here in North America and so what happens closest to me is on the news and I’m more exposed to the locale but this is all but a snapshot symbol of a deep insistent global pain, that we feel rising up from an unknown space within us, and we don’t even know what to call it and we resist it by deflecting it through rage and apathy, fear and denial.


But it’s all about waking us up – to what lies beyond this nameless pain.

Predicting the Future.. or Creating it?

Creating_future

If you’ve been following my posts about Oracle School you will know and hear me say some strong things about working with oracles and how asking “what’s going to happen” is about giving away your power instead of being empowered to choose, to intend, and to see who we can become in partnership with Spirit.


This may seem contradictory given I have built my reputation over 30 years on predictive accuracy as an intuitive although I have always maintained that I am only looking at probabilities and never absolutes.


I do not believe in absolute determinism.


If I did I would not be where I am today since a number of well known intuitives in the past have predicted things that had I continued on the path I was on would likely have happened.
I changed and the vantage point changed, the predictions changed because my choices changed.

Your 2¢ From Heaven

Your 2¢ From Heaven

Have you ever wanted to get a postcard in the mail from your guardian angel or your guides or loved ones from the other side? If those in heaven could give us their two cents about what’s up in our lives wouldn’t that be amazing?


After I shot my tv show Messages from Spirit in Canada a couple years ago I wrote about my experience tuning into a chorus of humming angels that call themselves Fred ( I know I know I don’t get to have archangels with swords of fire or ancient beings with fancy names like some people, mine seem to be comedians, and it took me ages to figure out they were the same angels I met 30 years ago but I’m good with that and it’s all in my book Uncharted by the way in case you haven’t read it yet) BUT I digress!

“In the storm the lone wolf perishes but the pack will survive” – why community is essential

Community is essential

Don’t worry this blog does not contain spoilers from Game of Thrones season 7 finale but I couldn’t help but be compelled by the sentence in quotes I put in the title. ( fans go and watch it now!!)

Thought it might be interesting to explore some questions this week. They sound easy to answer but I gotta be honest I squirmed when being really honest with my answers.

This past week being the eclipse week has required me to ask myself some very important questions you might like to ponder too.

Raising the Vibe with your Tribe

Raising the Vibe with your Tribe

Well here we are post eclipse and the energy is ripe for change in the best way possible. The significance of this phenomena will be felt over the next six months. The question now is how to we raise our vibe in a consistent manner so that our joy and our commitment to a better life is stronger than our fear of outer conditions?

Staying Awake-Weaving the Dream

Staying Awake-Weaving the Dream

Just returned from the first (of many I hope) of my new annual OraclePalooza events and all I can say is WOW. You never know who will show up for these things and we were sold out! We raised $1160 dollars for the Orlando SPCA too and I even got my mediumship event called Spirit Jam to stream live on FB!

When plans go Awry? (Ditch the plans!)

WHEN PLANS GO AWRY? (DITCH THE PLANS!)

This week has been so rich with ups and downs I must have meditated at least 3 times daily just to keep myself sane. My oracle cards were also on point so nothing really came as a surprise when Chaos and Conflict, Not For You, was followed by more of the same. I think I chose the card with the saying “ not my circus, not my monkeys” four times over 5 days.

Blessing the Past = Blissing the Future

What I Wish I’d Known Back Then… A Letter to My Younger Self

What I Wish I’d Known Back Then… A Letter to My Younger Self

Once in awhile I run across a blog or essay that really causes me to stop and really breathe it in. Reading a good message can cause a shift in me, ignite a eureka, or cause a deep resounding “yes”, perhaps moving me to tears or giving me courage that day to make a change I didn’t know I had to make intellectually, but at the level of the heart, I did. With all the uncertainty in the world it’s wonderful so many people are sharing their thoughts and hopes. Blogging can be a way of keeping conversations alive and bringing people together.

What is Yours Will Not Go Past You – The Gift of the Bright Red Dot

What is Yours Will Not Go Past You – The Gift of the Bright Red Dot

I remember the first time I heard this statement 30 years ago, and, (as a newly minted magical thinking new ager) I took it to mean that I would “easily and effortlessly” manifest what I want. After all, if I desire something should I not be able to manifest it?

Why Surrender Is Not Failure

Why Surrender Is Not Failure

I was thinking this morning about surrender as I perused Faceplant looking for cute baby animal videos ( one of my friends sent me one since Sebastian’s ashes came home yesterday and I wanted to escape by finding more).

Instead I landed on a page that had one but also an argument between two new agey- people having a conversation about ambition and the nature of surrender. One was pushing hard on the other to not give up and “cop out” suggesting (so so nicely) the failure of the other’s ambition to make things a certain way. She was a coach by the way.. “Push harder” she said!
