The Thrill of Change

One of the greatest mysteries of life is how much control we really have over our lives. Is there a God? Are we at the hands of fate? Or are we ultimate Creators? Or all of the above?!

When we find ourselves in the throes of change, even change we instigated, it can be a shock to realize how much power we have, while at the same time having to admit that we know very little about what may play out.

I believe we come in to this world with preferences, a kind of rough draft outline devised by the Divine (which includes Us, by the way!)

travel planImagine you are about to go on a very long trip. You have a general idea of the destination, you’ve heard it’s pretty, usually has nice weather and there are many opportunities to play and relax and meet interesting people.  So you book your ticket.  You may look at brochures of what other people have experienced in this new environment, and you may stare out the window of the plane imagining what you may do once there.

But do you really know what will happen once you arrive?  Of course not!  That’s like saying, you will know that a man named Greg will pop up to you at the airline counter and offer you a first class seat. Or the person in the cab on the way to the hotel will redirect you to a different hotel that is much better. Or that you will meet a tall handsome stranger at dinner on the first night and end up getting married the following week.  Who knows?! Anything is possible once you arrive.  But you start with preferences…

Once you are in the flow of life, every moment is a dance of cause and effect. What mood are you in? What do you expect? Are you happy or sad? Are you in grief or ecstatic at the game that is playing out? Do you want to stop and play again?  These are all chances to experience life from different vantage points. So much can happen on the way from A to B, that you may very well find yourself at Z and have to start all over again!

What I love to do is begin with a general idea of what I would like to create, and write it down. Sometimes I doodle or cut out images, but most times my imagination is more than enough.  As a hypnotist, I have no trouble visualizing and creating inner worlds!  What is truly amazing is when they come to pass and appear in my outer reality, quite unexpectedly.

Because of change, things I never thought I would do, I have already done (like acting, having a baby – or two, travelling around the world, creating a business). And things I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to handle, I did (like divorce, death of a loved one, moving, starting a new career) and more!

Some of my greatest miracles came out of the darkest storms and greatest times of change…

I am grateful for all the change that has led me here now!

Change occurs when our unconscious or conscious desires come true! They can be quite positive or negative depending on our inner world, the expectations and influence of those around us, which is what we allow ourselves to be exposed to.

You can change anything if you really want to – except your essential self, and other people! It’s not about eradicating what is… it’s about accentuating what is or creating what could be! And if you don’t like change, you can change that too. Just stay stuck awhile and see where life takes you!

women change

No matter what we do, we will inevitably change, and change is good for us, as it is the zest of life, what great writers write about, what lovers moon about, and what dogs howl about. It moves us in the right direction, even when everything appears to be going wrong. Great change can come even from tragedy. Progress comes from its opposite. So, change always moves in a positive direction over time. It’s all a collective choice!

Is there any point to all this change?

Well, like travel or anything else, we learn by doing something new. We learn what we can and cannot do. We learn what we like and what we cannot tolerate. We learn what could go wrong and how to adjust the plan. There is no one way to do it, and there is no real wrong turn, for there is always a change that will open us yet again to something we hadn’t thought of before!

It is all up to you! And you, and You!  

Each of us creates change, and our world too. Our world is just a giant mirror of our collective wishes, beliefs and dreams. We can embrace and create change, or try to stay the same…  Something mysterious will always turn us one way or the other, to create something more positive, even if life has to shake us a little more.  We are being moulded by an internal Force, and what seem to be external circumstances that we helped create!

We are like the clay and the potter (Isaiah 64:8), the wrecking ball and the glue that brings it all together.  God is in us, and we are in God too! There is nothing we can’t do!

(Except know all of this in advance. Except always know what to do. Because we are human, we forget that we are powerful creators. And we forget God, too.)

Sometimes, you just have to wait for it. Change will catch up to you!

Sooner or later you will discover, The Miracle is You!

 

I would love to hear what you have to say. Write to Krista.

 

 

Spiritual Perfectionism


Do you ever get so caught up trying to be perfect, to do everything right, walking a fine line that you forget to just be yourself?  I decided I needed to write this one just for me (Of course I hope you benefit too, as the more personal ones tend to!)

As much as I want to teach right now, let me just express (that is me talking to myself again). You see, we do have more than one side, and that is precisely what we’re on about here.

So, how do I live in my spirit and still live as a human being? Good question! I don’t. I mean, not always. It seems that sometimes, I am half the time here, and half the time somewhere else.  But in those rare times when I am consciously both here AND aware of my spiritual centre, I am at my best.

But that is not this post.  This post is about when I’m not. This post is about when I’m lost. This post is about when I’m confused, cranky, miserable, haven’t had enough rest, or just want to rebel and have a beer (or two). I am not perfect, and sometimes that is the greatest spiritual lesson of all.

AND, sometimes, sometimes, it is even necessary. Meaning that having FUN, and forgetting about my spiritual self, even for a moment, and delving into the purely human (evil? see that’s my Puritan speaking again!) self, connected to family, friends, and the everyday is just as  powerful, informing, healing and extraordinary as meditating, channellingor healing others (like at the Hive Open to Spirit series last week).

You know, sometimes I need a little TLC too. I need a little break from the SUPERconscious mind to just be good ole’ fashioned conscious and ALIVE!

WOW. I’m so rebellious sometimes. And that makes me laugh too, because I really don’t do that much wrong?… 

EXCEPT – when I yell, get angry, threaten with a woman’s hormonal irrationalism, cry or just fall down and weep. That can be quite a serious thing. And when I do that, I tend to beat myself up that I’m not that spiritual after all. How could I fail? How could I be all that AND all those other wonderful things?

LIKE – heavenly, beautiful, funny, dynamic, silly, inspiring, singing, wonderful, remarkable, happy, transcendent and dreamy?

WELL…  Because I CAN be.  I was created to be in a body, that is real on the physical plane, attached to an emotional body that is somewhere within that responding to everything, connected to a mental body that thinks ALL THE TIME, and finally, a spiritual body that both CREATES, AND TRANSCENDS everything. You see? It really can be quite complicated.

SO… the next time you decide to judge yourself, look at me! I’m not perfect, and…

YET, I AM PERFECT, ANYWAY!

BECAUSE GOD MADE ME.

HA!

(That made me feel better, anyway. And hopefully, you too!)

LOTS OF LOVE,

FROM

ME.

A Lighter Way

Over the last few years, and especially leading up to 2012 and the aftermath of 2013, I felt a lot of heavier, more serious energies. Given the importance 2012 had for many, and the relief of still being alive in 2013 for some (!), we are now at a point of creation again.  The ending of one era has given way (finally) to another.  And just what does that era entail?

In my own being, I feel the sense of enormous possibility and release of old ways and expectations. In relationships, work content, and intention/purpose – there is a sense of “lightening up the load”.  What was once heavy and dense, having to be worked through and released, is now lifting and leaving a great sense of air, expectancy, miracles and surprise.  

Like a jet airliner that has been landed too long (and perhaps needed extensive de-icing after a long winter!), we are now ready for lift off!  The runway feels a little bumpy, but once we reach the air it is smooth, crisp and clear.  And the sun is shining enormously bright…

But… Where are we going?

Who knows!  The land of possibility –  perhaps a multi-stop pop into the skies of life, gaining an aerial view of everything, and touching down where it feels warm and bright.  Can you relate?

Aaaahhh…  the sense of wonder. The magical nature of life unfolds.  Promises once made in a sleepless night begin to realize themselves magically without any effort or dense forethought.  Things just float along.  There is happiness and a song…

I feel this in the air as travel – unexpected trips, surprising new relationships, the miraculous impact of uplifting sounds and rousing music, dancing and singing as I wake up in the morning, greeting the day with more than a somber and “mercurious” meditation, but instead a delightful 2-step or highlander foray, as my feet gleefully pound the floorboards (my Irish/Scottish roots are showing!)…

I can’t get enough. Though I still mourn yesterday at times, and have my odd bad day – I sometimes get delayed (like an unwanted stop-over that never seems to end as your true destination awaits). But there is still the knowing that more is on the way. Patience, love and understanding keep me safe until I am back on the sky highway again.

This is where I am.  Turbulence, rain, shower – sure, they drop in.  But the rising sun delights me, and the whimsical air has my name on it. Krista is coming!  There is a sea of doves rushing in, and ancient places to go with a lighter heart and new mind. My steps are lighter.  My voice less rigid and somber.  A new way is slowly unfolding, and perhaps a new miraculous and enchanting era that is not mine, but shared.  

I look forward to this new time.  God knows, we have worked hard for it – mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually.  Maybe it’s time to let go and walk (or fly with the angels) a lighter way.  

A way that has been calling us all along.

Amen!

Miraculous Self-Love Creation

This is an affirmation extraordinaire, one that washed over me like a giant realization, like a bright star, or a person standing in the middle of a river panning for gold and finding a golden nugget so powerful she wanted to share it with the world!

self-love

Do you ever feel like you have such a long way to go before you will ever be the person you want to be? Like your mistakes are who you are, and there is “so much more work to be done?”  Not too inspiring, huh!?!…..  🙂

Now consider this:  

Deep down you really are all that good that you suspect is true about you at the best of times, and that you have experienced in glimpses. And the LOVE inside of you never changes and is the only real thing going on…  

You don’t have to wait to have it all figured out before you can BE the LOVE that you ARE!

Even if you are not perfect, there is a part of you that is.  

This part is connected to everything that is good and true.  

It already knows what to do! 

But, knowing this is not enough. You have to access it and really FEEL it to GET it.  How?

To reach this part of you, try the following spoken-out-loud mantra (or positive affirmation), and adapt it to your own words until it resonates with a  big whopping YES! for you….

Time for a little SLC…   Miraculous SELF-LOVE CREATION!

Deeeeeep Breaths.  Put your hand on your heart and stand in strength. Speak these words (or vary) and really feel them until a new understanding starts to land for you….

THE LOVE INSIDE OF ME… IS REAL.

THE LOVE INSIDE OF ME…  IS ALWAYS THERE.

THE LOVE INSIDE OF ME… HAS NOTHING TO FIX.

THE LOVE INSIDE OF ME… KNOWS WHAT TO DO.

THE LOVE INSIDE OF ME… KNOWS WHAT’S NEXT.

THE LOVE INSIDE OF ME… IS EFFORTLESS AND FUN!

THE LOVE INSIDE OF ME… HAS ALREADY WON!

Repeat as many times as necessary and breathe it in until you can FEEL it in your body….

Now, how does that feel?  

This is a huge Miracle of Self-LOVE just waiting to happen!  

Write to me and let me know how it affected you – you can write in the comments below, or send a message using the “Ask Krista” page above.  I would be happy to read your stories and share in the joy and FUN!  

Much Love with this Powerful Self-LOVE Creation! 🙂

Krista 

                                                                   The Miracle Is You

We are Powerful Co-Creators

What are you connected to?  If you thought about it, you’d realize all the amazing connections you have. Not just business connections, but family connections, spiritual life-changing energy connections, old friends and new. Perhaps even old ones you know newly.  Fresh takes and literal heartbreaks.  

.And then… there’s YOU.  

.

Your antenna rising, your thoughts and decisions melding and forming all that you say and do.  

The people you don’t know and the people you relate to 

All your dreams and visions come true

And many hesitations, missteps and failings, too.

And there is still, YOU.

Each of us carries this wild and amazing power to greet each day with unbeknownst intention and energy.  

There is a powerful co-creator in you!

Feel it?  The energy rising, the turn tiding, the riding of electric storms passing.  And then, there’s YOU.

All of it, on top of it, ever aware of it, the passing unfair of it, the amazing unfolding of it,

The “I can’t believe it but it’s TRUE!”  YOU.  

Seeing and feeling it, knowing and guiding it, landing and framing it for the Good of  All who see it, too!  

Can you ever get enough of it, why would you ever want to?

The rise and fall of it, on top of it all of it, so much I can’t stop it nor do I want to.  

I don’t have the answer to it, nor do I care to, but still must seek it and see if I want to.  

The come and the go of it, the yes and the no of it, the no I don’t want to and YES I DO!  

The MORE and the MORE of it, the hope and the show of it, the safe and the slow of it, the fast and the GO of it!  

Do you KNOW what you KNOW of it, the more that you SHOW of it, the more that you FLOW with it,  

the more that you GO with it?  

It never, ever ends, the saltry-slippery ends of it, the wishy-washy blend of it, the startling, heart-gripping friend of it.

It wants you to blend with it, write the sky and zen with it, the never-ending friend of it, the lucky, zip-zappity-end of it.

 

And that’s the Amen of it!

 

Amen. 🙂

The “IT” and “Aaahhh” of Everything

Einstein had IT.  Jobs had IT.  Bell (Alexander Graham) had IT.  Newton, Whitman, Michaelango had IT. 

We all have IT, to some degree.  But what is “IT”?  Is IT as elusive as our own shadow?

The mind is a fidgety thing. It likes to bounce around a lot. Even good ideas can make us crazy at times. Take Steve Jobs.  Or any genius who ever lived. 

It takes time to make things right. And they spent plenty of time perfecting the imperfectable. Everything had its flaw, its unanswered question, its undesirable. Its unavoidable pitfall. 

A very good friend of mine laughed at me today.  I told him about a little habit I have, a hobby (an obsession more like). Studying the past, connecting the dots of history, my family’s and the people who inhabited “IT”, whatever “IT” is. 

He laughed because he instantly got “IT”, even though “IT” could not be got.  That was his point. 

He said:

“If you studied something yesterday, then today you will know it.

But if you didn’t study it yesterday, you will not know it today. 

Nothing from the past can be known by going back. Then it becomes illusion.

You have to study something today, if you want to know it tomorrow.”

.

Get IT??

.

Somehow, I did.  As elusive as IT sounded. 

 

IMG_4345He put it another way, even better:  

When he was a kid in Africa, they did not have watches. They had to watch the sun’s passage and how it dropped down over their feet in the form of a shadow. They would know when it was high noon because the sun landed directly over their feet, allowing them to “step on” their own shadow. 

Now imagine this kid, or group of children, hopping around trying to capture the high noon of their shadow.  It could not be got.  Like illusion.  Each time they would try to hop on it, the shadow got away from them.

Same with ideas. 

Same with the past. 

Same with anything elusive and just beyond our grasp.

.

So what should we do with IT?  Pursue, advance or retreat (into the shadows? :).  This shadow, this elusive grasp we have on everything already past?

fun

“Accept IT, embrace IT, and know that IT is just that.   

Stop, rest, and pause a bit. Appreciate THAT.”

 

Our shadows over hand prints of the past - Chinese Theatre, Hollywood

Our shadows pass over hand prints of the past on a very hot day at the Chinese Theatre, Hollywood

Laugh at your own shadow. At your determination to chase your own tail.  Have you caught it yet?  You can’t, can you?  Because it is YOU you are chasing and hope to avail. Nothing outside of you really is at all. Just a giant mastermind of what you already are.

So, don’t chase your shadow, but observe where it lives. Just beyond your grasp, and yet.  If you look up, you’ll see the Cause of all this fuss.  The Sun, like the Source of all that lives, an enormous giant ball of energy passing over the sky, just passing over Mercury, over your face, over everything that lives. 

And you didn’t even have to open your eyes.

 

Aaaahhhhh……

 

Amen to THAT!
