Carmen Harra is an internationally acclaimed intuitive psychologist, author, relationship coach, spiritual teacher, and karmic counselor.
Born in Transylvania, Romania, Carmen's gift of otherworldly sight became apparent from a young age: at just five years old, Carmen drowned in a river near her home. Her father rescued her seconds from death, but she had already gotten a glimpse of the world beyond our own. While unconscious, Carmen recalls being transported through a white light and emerging into a picturesque setting of green valleys and silent streams. Several beings in white robes approached her, and told her to go back. It wasn't her time, they said.
Carmen returned to the normal world, but not without an added talent. Growing up, Carmen worried her parents with her incredibly accurate visions, her larger-than-life predictions. "Life is all about creating a vision for yourself," says Carmen. "That's what predictions are--visions that are part destiny and part free will. When I make a prediction for someone, I expand their self-vision. I give them the hope that something is possible. Then, they take that hope and manifest it into reality."
In her teens, Carmen began touring throughout Europe as a singing sensation. She released twelve albums which all became instant hits. She was first invited to visit America on a singing contract, but knew she was meant to stay forever. Just days before her trip, Carmen's father passed away unexpectedly. At his funeral, his spirit appeared to Carmen and told her to look at the name printed behind his grave. The tombstone read Virgil. "When you go to America, you will meet this man," his spirit told her.
After her first performance in the New York, a man walked up to Carmen and introduced himself as Virgil. The two became instantly inseparable. As part of her own personal transformation, Carmen reinvented her career and began offering sessions as an intuitive counselor. Carmen also opted to expand her metaphysical skills and earned Ph.D.'s in Hypnotherapy and Alternative Healing. She combined her intuitive abilities with knowledge of cognitive therapy--something that had never been done before--and also earned a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. Carmen began writing her first book, Everyday Karma, which has been translated into over 20 languages.
Since the start of her illustrious career, Carmen has been featured in numerous publications such as: New York Times, New York Post, New York Daily News, The Hollywood Reporter, Vogue, New York Magazine, US Weekly, V Magazine, Elle Magazine, and so on.

Carmen has also designed her own line of jewelry for QVC.
Carmen is the author of the international best-seller, Everyday Karma, and five more critically acclaimed books: Decoding Your Destiny, Signs, Symbols and Secrets, The Trinity of Health, The Eleven Eternal Principles, and Wholeliness. Her seventh book, The Karma Queens' Guide to Relationships, will be released by Penguin Books in the spring of 2015.
