... 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

Healing ... an Inside Out Job

It is somewhat surprising to me that I haven't written any articles to date that mention "healing" in the title. I have been largely focused on writing pieces that help others more clearly see themselves. Yet over the last year through the lessons I have personally bumped up against, I have learned that we cannot show someone something they are not ready to see. Jumping this up a level ... You cannot unleash your own unlimited potential until you realize, at least on some level, that you are the one blocking its emergence.

We are eternal energy ... spiritual beings of unlimited abilities and potential, having a temporary opportunity to create, affect and change the physical here on planet Earth. We are humans, but that cannot begin to define us. This human form is merely the vessel for our journey here, a kind of space suit, if you will. Yet, our contemporary focus has gotten so far from the spiritual perspective and so honed in on the physical that, for many of us, seeing ourselves means seeing only the physical container and it's condition.

I know this was true for me for many years. I can remember my beloved stepmom telling me one time, on a family outing, I was "being so controlling" when I thought I was helping others have the easiest time. From where I stood, I didn't even know I was controlling. I see now I was so separated from who I really am at my core ... my own essence ... that I couldn't see myself at all. In my case, and I'm sure in the case of many of us, I was told I couldn't be me as a child. I believed that and in the process, I lost mySelf. I didn't know I was role playing, so how could I even recognize how limited a part I had created for myself?

That was until something within me switched back on ... that sense of SELF beyond limits, time and space. That knowing of things unknown. When I gave myself permission to open the doors within, treasurers came forth. My personal "path toward enlightenment" was much less about learning from others and more about opening to myself. I think one of the reasons I am so effective as a healing facilitator is that I am able to get out of my own way. I let pure love and light reach forth and do the job. I listen for and heed insights and knowings that present. I guide and flow with the process.

What does my story have to do with the topic at hand? Everything. You see, until I healed myself I could not heal others. I had to find the places in me that were wounded ... most notably, the 3 year old who had been she could not heal herself or others. I had to acknowledge the wound and bring those parts of me to the Light before I could be whole and more easily reach my potential in this now moment. The answers didn't all come to me on my own. In recent years, I've had support from the most unlikely sources in stepping more firmly onto my Path ... some I sought out ... some who were provided to me. I had help uncovering my own story, so I could more clearly identify where I was playing hide and seek with myself. I believe this is part of being Human ... we need one another on this journey!

What is your story? How are you not seeing yourself?

What Are You Resisting?

It is in those moments that we resist "what is", that we feel pain. Sometimes these very things we resist are present is our life as our best teachers. Take a moment today and look for and at the things you are resisting. Perhaps it's the way another perceives you? Perhaps it's that something is not going "quite to plan" in your life? What's that thing that's "keeping you from being happy"? Perhaps in truth, it's you that's keeping yourself from being happy. Choose where you live, my friend!

A deepening of this message has been served up in my own life over the course of this Spring:

Many times it's the actions of others that sends us off our center of peace. But when we realize that on many levels this lack of peace is our choice and not theirs, we can move to a space of empowered living ... I call it "Self Mastery". Will others be your Captors? Or will they be your Teachers? It is only when we are in observation of our own state of peace, that we can see our choices more clearly! Only we can see if we're being dragged, tooth and nail, or blown over like a feather ..

To illustrate, I have a friend whom I'll call Sally. Sally feels very off-balance when she's around her sister-in-law Amanda. Sally feels that Amanda is in such a victim mode and always sees the dark side of every situation. When Sally is around Amanda, she feels unsure of herself because Amanda is "just waiting for her to mess up". Sally has been totally stressing out all week in anticipation of being with Amanda in the coming days for Father's Day.
