... release that which no longer serves you!

Kristi's Blog

Much of what seems so real in this physical dimension is not the entire Truth of who we are and/or what we can do. Over the last decade, I have allowed myself to both explore and expand beyond the physical, mental and emotional boundaries I thought were rigidly in place in this "reality". What I found was an aspect of Self that I had forgotten was there. I offer these wonderings and wanderings as an invitation to see beyond "what meets the eye" in your own life!

Read, ponder, explore the depths of yourself. Although our eyes focus outward, we are primarily here to see and change ourselves. If the words assist, there is a link for gratitude giving. If you want to go deeper in your healing and release more quickly, let's work together. These writings are not short ... but the world is full of insightful one-liners which haven't managed to fully communicate to and shift heart and soul. I remain ever hopeful ... Much love, Kristi

The Silent Breakup

I've recently lost a friend who basically just stopped communicating with me. When I noticed a change in her attitude, I was confused and asked her straightforwardly if there was something I had done. She said "no" but I apologized anyway for the to-me unknown offense or action. The distance widened. I kept wondering what had happened.

Today I've finally achieved both mental and emotional clarity/peace on the situation.In pondering the situation yet again this morning, I had a flash of insight as I remembered my own experience/perspective of being with a dear friend and no longer feeling joy in that relationship. The parting of ways was not about her; it was about me and what I needed to do with my time, which I was increasingly learning to value. I really couldn't explain the breakup to her. There were so many layers and levels to the situation.

Death is Only Difficult for the Living

I truly believe that death is only difficult for the living. To be one with All That Is, able to be with souls you care about, regardless of whether they are on Earth or in the stratospheres ... WOW! Imagine the joy souls (people) in broken bodies must feel when they are released from those bodies. The soul lives on dear friends (that which has been made cannot be unmade). Yes, it sheds it's clay vessel ... the physical body; in the cycle of life, "ashes to ashes, dust to dust, that vessels returns to the Earth. This remembering of the Universal Laws of life and death has been so freeing for me.

When you no longer fear death, what is there left to fear? Yes, it's difficult to lose the physical presence of someone you love. However, when you realize and welcome that soul to be with you any time and any place, you can understand how blessed we are for the loved ones who surround us.

Reflections of Gratitude and Shining YOUR Light ..

 
I have much to be thankful for ... more than words can adequately express! Yet, 2013 has been a year of lessons about releasing any remnants of the program which had me judging myself through the eyes of others. Somewhere along the way this year I heard and truly integrated "what others think about you is truly not your business". In stepping into everything that I AM being called to be, I am grateful for the loving support I have received. Yet, I've faced rejection by not only casual acquaintances, but also from long-term friends and life-long family members. These reactions have not only hurt my feelings, they have also sometimes cast me onto a sea of self-doubt. However, I've also witnessed life-changing moments for myself and others; not through having my "nose to the grindstone" and struggling, but by just being ME ... basically surrendering, squelching the INTERNAL voice telling me I couldn't do this or that, and allowing God to flow through my physical vessel unimpeded.

In the last few days I've been reflecting what I have gained through experiencing negative reactions to my "healing gift" by some of those I thought were "closest" to me:

Soul-School ~ Planet Earth

I believe we came to this soul-school called Earth to evolve/grow and take in more light, not by avoiding, but by facing the conflict and obstacles set smack-dab our paths. The proverbial monk who sequesters himself to the top of the mountain may feel he has attained spiritual enlightenment due to the serenity and bliss that enfold his every waking moment. What has his soul learned; how has he pushed himself and grown?

I believe it is you and I who can find the deeper joys and meaning to life, true enlightenment if you will, when we respond from a place of neutrality or better yet LOVE, when confronted/challenged/tested by someone rejecting us, hurting us, pushing our buttons, etc. In these situations, the other person is not the adversary/enemy; our responding to situations where there is a lack of light in kind with anger, hatred, intolerance, etc. is the true adversary/enemy because this perspective keeps us from realizing our true nature, which is love and light.

Listen to that Voice Within. In Every Moment There Are Choices.


Last night as I was driving home on a back road, radio blasting, PT Cruiser top down, I glimpsed movement near the opposite side of the road, up ahead a bit. I slowed down as the figure became clearer to be an opossum. As my 3000+ pound, 80’s rock-blaring vehicle approached, he/she was not at all deterred from his/her mission to cross the road. I slowed to a complete stop within feet of the critter. This morning, I started reflecting on the incident and the message I could see from this lil’ guy.

How often do we get so focused on the “prize” or our initial goal that we lose our sense of contact with the present moment? And in that present moment, there are external clues, inner proddings, and opportunities to stop and pause and reflect on whether or not we are taking the route that’s best for us.

Step Outta the Box



Know with every part of your BEing that what you want TO BE is much closer than you may think. Release yourself from the box you have placed around yourself and/or your heart. Making it your REALITY is merely a question of BELIEVING in YOURSELF and stepping into those shoes!

On Racism ~ A Child's Perspective

On racism ~ I was watching a video interviewing children and asking (1) their reaction to a recent Cheerios commercial featuring a bi-racial family (most thought it was cute and/or very funny) and (2) telling them that many people are upset about the commercial. All had NO IDEA why people would be upset, as they saw only the love in the commercial. When it was explained it was because the family is bi-racial, their first reaction was disbelief and then mostly sadness.

In the middle of the video, the word "RACE" struck me from a different, LITERAL perspective, and I wondered if, at some point in the past, this word to describe one's outward appearance had been intentionally selected for its divisive/combative/competitive energy. Sigh ... I ask you to join me in envisioning the day when "WE" realize that we're all on a level playing field and THIS ISN'T A RACE.

Being a Change Agent of Love in Business

Sometimes I feel like I'm walking a tight rope between two worlds. In one I am seeing the interconnectedness between, among and through us. In the other (business dealings), I'm seeing how everyone has been "groomed" to be closed off, tough, separated, unemotional. 

In my own life, the lines are blurring. As an example, I just typed an email to a long-term Ad•Mark•Com client and nearly hit "send" before realizing the "farewell" was "Love, Kristi". While that's how I FEEL, it's not acceptable; so I have to censor myself.

In the Flow

I'm in the grocery store and I admire a candy-striped hyacinth in another shopper's cart. These flowers offer one of my favorite scents. "I'm treating myself," she says, "you should too!" "I think I will," I agree. However, when I peruse the plants there are no hyacinths ... just that lingering heavenly scent. 

We meet again at the check out. "Where's your hyacinth?" she asks. "There were none left, but that's okay," I say. In my head I am thinking I'll ask hubby to pick one up for us. When I get outside, she's waiting for me, hyacinth in hand. "Happy Easter! I want you to have this," she says. 

I protest, but then I remember how one of the best things you can give a gift-giver is the joy of having given the gift to a grateful recipient (admittedly it took me a long time to get this). "Thank you very much," I respond. "And I know that you will get exactly what you need, when you need it most."

When Will You Be DONE?

I have been through stages in which I have an immense, burning desire for information. I could not read enough, watch enough videos, explore others' ideas, take course, etc. Then at some point, I said "enough". I reached that point at which I realized I had to go within for the answers I sought.

When I did this, incredible things started happening.

Letting Negative Emotions Flow Through and Beyond You


Consider ... negative emotion = energy in motion (Amit A Desai). The tough part of this realization is, rather than ignore or avoid that negative emotion (which only enables it to get stuck within you), let the negative emotion be felt fully and flow through/beyond you. 

I was thinking that living in the NOW moment meant not giving power to negative emotions from the past, but belief was vanquished by "The Art of Allowing ~ Explained" (Desai) and discussions with my friends.

If the feelings surface for you in any moment, that is the time to deal with them. Feel them. Sit with them. Give them voice. Like the whinny child, they may just need to be heard fully. Ask yourself questions, to try to go deeper and deeper into the feelings.

Feel The Love That's Always There, Abundantly


In this NOW moment, I choose to feel the love of those who ARE capable of sharing it with me, rather than focusing on the lack of love I have been experiencing. 

Realizing the greatest source of love is, and always has been, there within myself ... and the only moment I should focus on is right NOW. 

And so it is!

With love,
Kristi

"Everything is beautiful in its own way!" What are you seeing as scary, insurmountable, challenging that, viewed from another perspective, may be your "perfect storm" opportunity to break free from the limitation on self YOU are ready to release?

Lovingly,
