How I Became A Channel + Bonus Book Chapter

Here is the story of How I Came to Be… a Channel, Healer, Mystic, Guide, Writer, Poet, Soul Seeker, Spirit-Singer, Angel, Speaker, Teacher, Compassionate One, Lover, Mother, Heart-Centered Happy-Maker, Divine Helper, Light-Giver, Hope-Bringer, Peace -Maker, Beloved One, and Miraculous Daughter of God – just to name a few!

This is a milestone for me. Not only is it my birthday this week, but it is the beginning and the ending of something significant. I have been doing this blog on this website for 5 years now, and have just been working diligently on a big change, including a new online platform, and a new way of being and doing my work. Before I share that, I’d like to share how all this came to be. After 5 years, I’ve shared bits and pieces, here and there, and if you go digging I’m sure you’ll find them!

But I thought it would be good for me, and for those who are interested and drawn, for me to share more about this process of transformation that I have been through, and its miraculous results! – and it will be a wonderful celebration for me to see how far I’ve come before I start the new!

How on earth am I going to do this in one post? Or two? Perhaps that is why I started a book. For now, I will just write and see what comes…

When I was little, my favourite song to sing was “You are My Sunshine”, and as my mother sang it to me, I then sang it to my children (though I changed the last words to “forever and a day!…”), and even now I sing it because it makes me happy. To make happy is an extraordinary gift, and one I have. I can take the most dismal situation and turn it into pure gold, treasure beyond measure, the heart as pure as snow. Laughter abounds, hearts are mended, and truth is what sings to me as a result. That is a miracle. And that has always been my gift to the world.

When I was ten or twelve, my mother would take me to other friends or relatives’ churches on occasion. We never committed to one, but I saw the impact that faith in something greater made. I felt the energy of spirit when people felt lifted. And I believed there was a Christ, or Jesus, but he didn’t live there in a building, however consecrated, he lived in me.  I always felt the emotion in my heart somewhere, that this was a special kind of love I could not find anywhere else. Yet it was always with me, everywhere I went, when I was alone, or with other people. The truth is, I was never alone.

I never became a religious person. I never saw myself that way. I saw myself as an independent thinker, a deep spiritual seeker, even at young age. I imagine (in my now imagination anyway!), I was quite a burgeoning philosopher, as in “philo-sophia” or “lover of wisdom”, and I loved my mother’s middle name, “Sophia” for that very reason, and so I gave that middle name to my daughter also.  There was something beautiful and mystical about it, about the unknown, or the “knowing that cannot be named”. Every name is just a symbol, a reminder of what lies behind it. There is always more!…

little blue diary

When I was a teen I became quite an actress, an expresser of truths, a mystical writer and puzzler of sorts. I would love to confound my teachers with my deep musings, and indeed I did! I never knew what I was going to write before I wrote it, not for creative writing anyway. It was like some mystical force went through me, my high mind, my deepest truth, my most profound learnings that came from somewhere else, and would land on the page unapologetically and without explanation. I was not into explaining as I do now, as a teacher, I was more a student who did not have the knowledge of where those ideas came from. I just “channelled” them, though I did not call it that. If I look back, I now see the seeds were sown long ago, the pictures I drew of a woman with angel’s wings, a medieval looking saint with love-filled eyes… all of these echoes of some other reality I tapped into. Never did this ability suddenly come or go away. It was always a part of me, and still is to this day.

In my twenties I “lost my way”, yet I didn’t. After being tremendously creative, I spent a long time as a “normal” working girl. I secretly hid my deep writings and would steal time to print them off of the big mainframe computer printer at work! It was my way of survival – to keep my soul alive and singing while I attended to “other things”. Work and family were most important and kept me going, as a young wife and mother. My soul expressions would have to wait – at least a little while. It wouldn’t be till over a decade later that any of it would come to fruition.

Hey, I'm sexy AND I can save the planet

After 9/11, a corporate takeover and a subsequent maternity leave, I finally escaped the “work force”, and let myself live more. I danced, I sang, I wrote, I spent time in theatre and as a professional actress in tv/film. It was a whirlwind and I loved it – until I went through a series of losses, including a significant death, which led me to doing A Course in Miracles, which in itself is a channelled material from the higher realms.  This deepened my inner life, and caused me to question more and more.

Then the recession hit in 2008, and my own inner seeking became heightened and acute. The world was changing. Something bigger than me was going on.  I knew I was here for more than just myself, or my own enjoyment or achievement. As much as I loved it all, it was fleeting, as everything can be in this life. I needed to return to my deeper roots, to the little girl who just knew herself without apology, and the teen who dug deep down into the mysteries of things and found sustenance there.

This time, I was reaching higher, and wanted to find my liberation, my life’s purpose and the ultimate plan for my life. I felt a deep inner call that I needed to change, to give back, and I needed to do it now!

In 2009 I went on a spiritual quest in Southampton, New York, for a screenwriting course at SUNY university. I wrote about this in Meeting Your Soul Companions. This awakened that part of me that “just knew” there was something more for me to do. I had become a partial channel through doing A Course in Miracles, and would often have written dialogues with the divine. This relieved some of the anxiety I was feeling, and directed my steps for the years ahead. These communions with my higher self/guides/angels were my “go-to” place and although I have learned other ways of reaching the inner planes through hypnosis and direct channelling, I still just “talk to” my angels, Jesus and guides as if they were right there. They are my “imaginary friends”, the ones children are told do not exist. Well, mine are still there, moving in my life, alerting me to any dangers, and pointing the way forward.

After my awakening, I had some highs and lows not knowing what to do with myself, and it was on the cusp of my 40th birthday, and that inner call and necessary change I referred to earlier had become a “DO or DIE” within me. Instead of explaining what that was, I am going to do something I’ve never done. I’m going to give you right here a chapter out of my unpublished Book of Miracles memoir, on the journey to New Orleans six years ago, and what happened to kick start this whole process…

Read, enjoy, and I will be back to finish this miraculous story, which will be the last one for this website, as I prepare to meet the new!…

Stay tuned. 🙂

P.S. You know I couldn’t possibly tell you all, right? But I will give you moore miracles  than expected!

 

 

 

Finding Truth Together

We were never meant to struggle alone. Even if we feel that we are alone, we still have God/the Holy Spirit/J or any other name you give that Holy Presence within. But when it is difficult to discern by yourself, it is helpful to have others to gather with and find that peaceable truth together.

I have always believed in the value of groups. Although I see many clients who like to work one on one, I also see the movement and miracles when women and men are in a sacred circle together. There is nothing like it. More can happen when we recognize the beauty and the common desires of each other.

Something opens to a higher level when we realize we want what another wants, when we help someone as if they are the same as ourself. When we hear the truth out of our own lips which we could not voice before. This love is universal. And it is very powerful.

You can seek alone, in partners, in small groups or a large community. It doesn’t matter. What matters is what you feel drawn to. God gives in mysterious ways. Just be open and join with another for the purpose of finding the answer, a better way, greater happiness and joy, healing and health, love and kindness and compassion for all. In this hope, you can never go wrong.

“Wherever two or more are gathered, there I am in the midst.” (Mathew 18:20)

If you feel drawn to this message, and my work as a spiritual guide/director, channel, writer and lover of miracles, join me in a safe, comfortable, intimate group environment, at Miracles Grow Here! in Scarborough, Ont this Monday Oct 23, Nov 21, and Dec 12/16  7-9pm for “An Evening of Spirit”…. for group channelling, healing & hypnosis, bonding and wonderful spirited conversations! This is just one example of a community of light and love.

What Channelling Is and Is Not

This is a quick clarifying article for myself, to be clear on what I perceive as the gift and limitations of channelling, based on my learnings from A Course in Miracles (a channelled teaching given through two American clinical and research psychologists in New York, Dr. Helen Schucman & Dr. WilliamThedford, as directed by Jesus or the Holy Spirit within).

The following explanation may seem a bit “heady” or difficult to comprehend if you have not experienced A Course in Miracles yourself, but I will not let that stop me from an attempt at sharing the wisdom and understanding with those who are interested and called to it. You may come to your own understanding a different way; one way is to do the Course yourself.

Every channel or scribe is prone to errors, but the form does not matter. What is most important is the content or message, and whether it advances us in the thinking of Love and forgiveness, to release us from error and judgement, and produce miraculous shifts in our perception that we would otherwise not have been able to do alone. That is the miracle. We are not alone.

There is a lot of skepticism, including my own, about channelled material, or those who teach and write from channelled material. I think this is a healthy skepticism for the most part. My own resistance to being a channel, or using the words that come through me when I am “channelling” a higher energy than my own, can sometimes get in the way of the illumined possibility that it is presented through me for my and/or another’s healing. Sometimes skepticism is just an elaborate defence mechanism to block the message, and delay healing.

Not all channelled material is the holy Gospel, and indeed even the “Gospels” are not without error, as they were produced by human beings who lived after the time of Jesus, and were tainted by their own perceptions and later teachings (or shall I say older teachings) that were more in line with the world’s thinking, rather than Jesus’ uncompromising message of Love. This understanding comes to me through much reading of the apocryphal Gospels, found recently from almost 2000 years ago near the time of Jesus, subsequent biblical scholarship and theory, mystical teachings of sages and saints, as well as Jesus’ own teachings through the form of A Course in Miracles.

acim

Very few can claim the title of perfect channel, except perhaps Jesus who walked the earth as a man and was, according to the power and timelessness of his teaching, completely identified with the Holy Spirit, God or Love. He referred to God as the Father, and was completely dependent on Him for guidance. Jesus was seen to leave his disciples and pray alone, and he also prayed to God when he healed people. He was under no illusion that he alone was the healer, as he said, “Of myself I can do nothing” (John 5:30). He also did not claim that he was the only healer, as he called his disciplines to follow his lead and perform miracles (and continues to this day), pointing all to the Kingdom of Heaven, or God within.

Having a total dependence on God or a Higher Power is not a new idea for healing. Even the secular Alcoholics Anonymous depends on it as a tenant. But how do we know that we are hearing the right Voice?

Many ask, how can we be sure we are hearing or channelling the words of God/Holy Spirit/Jesus or any other angelic apparition? Can we not deceive ourselves or be deceived by the lower mind which some call evil, lower “false” self, “wrong mind” or ego? Yes. But…

According to my understanding of and experience in doing A Course in Miracles, God gave the Holy Spirit as a communication link to all his creation that we might not lose our connection to our original Source. As human beings, the Holy Spirit uses our own minds and the language we speak, including the symbols familiar to us, to communicate these messages of Love. That is why channels all sound different according to their culture or time or intellectual ability, even though they may be channelling the same Source. Symbols are not important – they are “man-made”, but the message, the energy and the Light they represent are not. Only the messages and transmissions of Love matter.

channelling3

Further, the Holy Spirit/God/Jesus/Angels bring about a shift in perception that is not of this world. As human beings we are prone to fear, anger and unforgiveness, attack, blame, shame and guilt. This is a common problem for all human beings whether they are aware of it or not, in what some call “original sin” or unconscious guilt which resides in our minds.

However, as A Course in Miracles teaches, there is no “sin” but simply a mistake or error that occurred when we thought we separated from God but did not. Mistakes or errors require correction, not condemnation. Even if we fail temporarily, when we ask, we will receive that correction and through grace be given back to God. Our answer comes. Our job is to seek and return to our right mind, where the Holy Spirit resides, and where our memory of God resides also, so we can join with all our brothers and sisters and return to the oneness which is our true reality in Spirit/Christ/Creation. This requires trust on our part and diligence.

We find this holy place within our mind, not outside in the outer world, which is a projection of our split mind or lower consciousness. Love joins all minds as one, because we are one. This is not a concept but a sacred truth that almost all sacred texts point to, though few are without error in some form or other.

Channelling is prone to error while we are in a body, unless we are trained to reach the part of our mind that is pure Spirit, where we realize we are not a body, but are totally identified with Spirit, as Jesus demonstrated. Our images of him do not matter. Only the message matters, and that message has persisted through time in many forms, even if misunderstood…

jesus-cefalu_pantocrator_retouched

God/Jesus/Holy Spirit and other Ascended Masters or Beings of Light teach us through our right mind, the part of us that is always and forever holy. When we receive messages, impressions or feelings that call us to surrender our ego and see someone’s innocence with Love (“to love your neighbour as yourself”), that is the Holy Spirit doing its work within us to heal the separation and return our minds to God, to wholeness and to Love. We are really just messengers for each other to find our way back Home. Our job is to love one another, not judge. To share, not separate. We cannot do this alone. We must go together.

When I channel, my job is to let go and align myself completely (as much as possible) with my High Self/God, the truth within, and to connect to that same truth within those I am working with or thinking about (even if they are not present on the level of form). This is not an easy task and most people do not always succeed, but are simply on their way to that understanding. Each step or effort in that direction moves us closer to its realization. Time is an illusion anyway, and so we should not judge ourselves or others harshly if we temporarily fail.  Remember, we are not alone. All miracles are maximal. Something greater is at work to bring all the parts of God/Son of God/Creation back into full awareness that we are all united, and are not separate. Forgiveness is our only goal.

I know I am hearing/speaking from my Highest Self or “right mind” (the Holy Spirit/God/Love within) when the messages or energies that comes through are:

  • Loving in tone, quality or feeling
  • Peaceful and calm no matter what is happening on the outside
  • Non-judgemental (judging only ideas as true or false, not people)
  • Wholly without blame or anger
  • Beyond my own limited self-perceptions and pointing to a much larger, higher perspective which includes everyone equally
  • Fair and uncompromising in the reality that God is Love and only love, and all beings are loved equally by God without exception
  • Totally forgiving of my and others’ errors (without taking sides!) and quickly corrective and helpful in pointing the way to right thought or action
  • Transformative and enlightening, turning my mind from any heavy, fearful thoughts (errors) to a holy, loving, encouraging and light-filled Vision of Love which gives hope to myself and others (as we are all joined)
  • Healing on the mental/physical/emotional and/or spiritual level (whether we see physical evidence or not, as all healing is of the mind first, as the Course teaches).
  • Relieving of any heavy burdens I have placed upon myself, removing any guilt, and quickly turning me toward what is truly helpful, beneficial and healing for myself and others (as we are all joined)
  • Positive and life-affirming, with helpful instruction or constructive correction that result in positive effects, even if not immediate
  • Consistent and unchanging: the form of the words may change, as the world is based on the shifting illusions of time, with symbols that we have created to communicate to each other in various ways and for various purposes; but God does not change, and the content or messages of Love should be holy without change, consistent and uncompromising in their unwillingness to veer into fear or justify anger for any reason. The meaning behind the words is wholly reliable, representing a thought system of Love that is ever-present and represents truth, even while it seems to appear within a temporary illusion.

In other words, we made God in our image; but God does not make images and he is only Love. All messages that come from the Holy Spirit are symbols of God which is Love.

When I make a mistake in my channelling (attempt to reach and speak from the Holy Spirit/Love within), I recognize it by how it influences me and my emotions. When I hear correctly and listen and follow the guidance, I feel peaceful inside, happy or content, powerful even. When I listen to the shifting sands and confusing illusions of this world and think with the “wrong mind” (my lower selfish thoughts or ego which projects onto this world), I lose sleep and do not feel at peace. I am at war with myself /others or the illusions I have made. This is not real.

Only the Love of God is real. And that Love is a shared reality. Channelling is a way of reaching God or the Highest Mind, and sharing that Love and wisdom. 

Lastly, channelling or channels of God are not special. All minds are one with God, and all have unique gifts to share. However, not all of God’s channels are open or aware now. That is why God uses the Holy Spirit to reach those minds that are more open, to answer those who are still seeking, that they might be given assistance in the form that is best suited to their needs at the time. All forms are temporary.

The most important lesson is not to worry about the form that a channel or message takes or whether angels or other ascended beings are “real” or not. We are not here to argue. We are here to love. All are one in Christ/Christ-consciousness/Love or our Highest Mind/Source, regardless of our language or understanding. What is most important is not the specific words or symbols (appearances), but the message and content which comes to bring healing and forgiveness and raise us back to God, where we belong. We all come from and return to the same Source.

I hope this helps, as it has helped me clarify my own role, as a temporary channel, and not the perfect representative or only and “ultimate” truth. Those who are drawn to the messages that come through a specific channel need them. And those who are not are either not ready, or have found another way. Again, the form is not important. Only that we find our way back to God and realize we are all the same.

Amen.

Creating Joy Through Change

Change is inevitable; Joy is not. Joy is a choice! Although I may resist at first and have many doubts along the way, I have found (through the gifts of channelling,  spiritual direction and hypnosis), that I can let go of my past and embrace change with more Joy for myself and others, which leads to unexpected miracles…

After experiencing a dynamic shift in my life over the last few years, including becoming a channel (more on what that is in my next post!) I received a message that I would be doing my spiritual work in a “centre”. Having recently found and lost the AHA! centre in Toronto due to things beyond my control, I felt both elated and then confused as to what to do next…

So I went on a personal trek of the soul – journeying first to old Quebec City for some fun with my family…

 

…then on to Saint John, New Brunswick to see my dear friend and fellow channel/hypnotist, Elizabeth Rose… Elizabeth and I have both experienced this transformational process together since 2012, including the highs and lows of facing change, and have had to make significant, unexpected changes in our lives as a result. (We also manage to laugh and cry heartily at ourselves and the amazing things that come on our path). She has been a life-saver in times of uncertainty, and a truly gifted and healing channel. I knew she would understand and help me find my next step…

Just a year and a half ago we were sitting in a restaurant in Saint John when the angels spoke through her and announced she would be opening a healing centre in her tiny cottage (then filled with boxes and old furniture from decades ago). Needless to say she was overwhelmed! As we talked, I suddenly got an inspiration and the name popped into my head:

“I know what it is supposed to be called!… ” I announced.

“What?!” she asked stunned.  

“The Rose Cottage…” 

Eizabeth Rose at The Rose Cottage NB

Eizabeth Rose at The Rose Cottage NB

We both knew it was right. Not only is Rose her last name, but it is also represents love to many, and is one of the highest frequency creations on the planet – some even reference it to the mystical teachings of Jesus Christ.

She later added “Hypnosis School and Retreat Centre” and within 6 months, after much effort, moving things out, clearing and revamping, as well as giving up her previous life of security and creature comforts (including a high-paying corporate job in the investment world), she now lives a simple, healthy life in total service to others, holding groups and seeing clients from all over the world, from a tiny place called The Rose Cottage NB… 

On this latest visit, we did more channelling, walks, and inner work, and as always managed to find humour and fun in the midst of emotional turmoil and change. Already a houseful, including two young teenage girls, Elizabeth also held her weekly mentoring meeting in the small but open and beautiful space, overflowing with full seats for an evening of channelled messages, group healing and hypnosis.

As a full channel, Elizabeth (and I) never know what is going to happen next – we simply follow the guidance. One woman experiencing grief received healing messages from her recently deceased loved one. Others experienced themselves as pure light, and were able to climb higher in their level of consciousness and see their guides and angels. Another felt elated to have an intimate dialogue (through Elizabeth’s channel) with a lively, loving (and quite humourous!) Jesus. It was truly awe-inspiring for some, and life-changing for all. They continue to meet every Monday for Channelled messages, Healing and Hypnosis, with new people arriving weekly.

Elizabeth and I co-channelled to close off, and experienced past lives with two participants in which we all reunited as souls and healed our collective past. A gentle reminder that we are eternally bonded to many in our current lives, and our seemingly transient relationships are far more than we think or understand. It was truly liberating and joyful to feel so connected to each other and experience our eternal selves. 

Before we left, Elizabeth channelled that I was to open my own centre, and “grow where you are planted.” In a follow-up session, she channelled the title:

“Miracles Grow Here… in Your Heart”

It was perfect! I had been moving around so much on retreats and working out of other’s healing centres, I didn’t realize I could work miracles in my very own space, wherever I already am!

As we open and heal our hearts by doing the work, we follow the path of Joy even in the face of sorrow and strife. Now we are ready to receive the gifts that were waiting for us…

Out of this miraculous experience, inspiration came, and by the time I got home, I was cooking up a vegetarian storm with zest, going barefoot walking through the parks (see Grounded and Growing), opening my heart more with loved ones (see Feeling God When You Feel So Alone), and finally preparing my new healing centre by clearing rooms, painting with fresh light colours, and getting ready to welcome my growing community…

Miracles Grow Here… in your Heart

All of this came through the channelling, through connection and love, and through venturing out of my comfort zone and embracing change with an attitude of transforming sorrow and confusion into Joy and Miracles….

After 2 years, it looks like things have finally come full circle: First we received the message to create a healing centre in Saint John, and now in Toronto. My friend will be returning to help me welcome you and experience this transformation during our launch event:

MIRACLES GROW HERE! 


Thanks to Elizabeth Rose, for tuning in to deliver the message of inspiration for this amazing turn of events, and to my family and friends for their continuing blessings and support as part of this incredible journey!

 

How do you create Joy in the midst of change? Do you need a little help finding your way through the changes, just as I did? Look here for the gifts of Spiritual Direction/Channelling/Hypnosis. 

 

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.

 

 

How to Forgive Others

Sometimes “people” get the best of us (or so we think). The truth is, we are all suffering from the same dis-ease: being human!  Here is how I began to resolve this very human problem and achieve greater peace and clarity.

I had been tested lately, with an old pattern that caused me to be angry with myself and others. Just when I thought I was above all the madness, it hit me. And my irrational brain fired off chemicals of alarm and warfare. Things came out of my mouth that I knew were not true, and yet I felt they were. I would defend them to the death, even though I felt miserable saying them. I wallowed in self-pity and despair…
It took me days to figure this one out! How could I have been given so much insight and wisdom, and still suffer from this same problem? How long would it take to finally be rid of it and not feel such hate, such victimhood?

I was even angry at my angels for not saving me from this devastating problem. Although nothing on the outside was really wrong, on the inside I felt such pain and sorrow, and just wanted them to take it away and fix everything. Where was my miracle now? Now, I was really mad!

This was a very humbling dis-ease. It was a dis-ease of mind, that we all suffer from on occasion, some more than others. I couldn’t see the benefit to this kind of feeling, and yet I couldn’t quite let go of it either. I wanted revenge – not in some evil way, just a little punishment for the one who had offended or hurt me? These are not thoughts I am proud of, but I confess they were there. I wanted them to change and say they were sorry. I wanted them to come to me downcast and change their behaviour towards me. I wanted everything to change except me!

Does this sound familiar?

Be the change you want to see in the world. –  Gandhi

 

Then in my frustration and despair, I was growing impatient for a solution. But more than this, I wanted to understand everything so I wouldn’t repeat it. That was worth much more than a temporary fix or a ‘just make it go away’ attitude.

In my meditation I asked for the angels to help me. I was still angry, and I expressed all my feelings without holding back – I just let it all out, tears and all! Funny enough, there was a lot of grief under there – as many experts believe anger hides a deeper hurt, pain or sorrow. I saw this as a long-standing problem, not just a recent event. I wanted to resolve it at a deeper level, and be free of it. I cried out in pain, but what I was really asking for was love and clarity…

Then it came. Though I was doubtful in my present condition that it was possible, I listened for guidance and it came. I heard the still, small, voice, this time in the voice of Mary (Mother Mary), and Jesus, who guided me to go up a little higher, in my consciousness or imagination, and stand with them in heaven. This was unusual. Usually, we ask them to come down to us! Well, this time, I was being asked to climb a little higher in my consciousness, and imagine that I could be raised up to where they were standing.

I arrived in what they call the “interlife” where souls go between lives, where we see the bigger picture and learn our lessons. I could see why this was a good idea, given that I wanted clarity, and couldn’t see it at all from my limited perspective.  Instead of seeing with human eyes, they asked me to stand side by side with them (squeezing their hands) and looking out upon the world and my situation through their eyes and my newer perspective, and then to tell them what I saw.

Then it came to me. I saw that I was really being tested and challenged to overcome my anger, not just for myself, but for all of humanity.  My healing was healing everyone involved!  I no longer blamed myself for this problem, and saw that it was something that affected me and many, many more for generations, including those I had been angry at!  If I could overcome this anger and learn to forgive myself and them, I would be free, and in time, so would they. This was really a service, a difficult but very important service, and I was being guided and helped to make it through with flying colours.

All would be OK.

I also felt no anger while I was in that state of mind. I felt a peace and calm, with a sense of understanding and clarity.  I saw the purpose in everything. The situation and future were so much brighter than I had imagined! All things would improve if I could complete this one task. Forgive myself, forgive others, and let go of the anger. See it as a service, and remember the larger perspective. Then I would be patient, and not demand others change for me. I could see that it was me that was in the process of changing, being guided to a whole new way of thinking and being that would liberate both them and me.

This was good news!

For one who did not, in my limited smaller perspective, think it was possible to feel better about this, I did. The anger was gone from me. I didn’t need the other person to do anything to deserve this happiness for myself. I was forgiven. And I could enjoy happiness and peace of mind again. This was the lesson.

Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespassed against us. –  The Lord’s Prayer

And with this renewed sense of calm and inner purpose, I began to write about this very topic, and share my insights with those who could be helped by them. And I could begin to enjoy being my wise, loving self again. 🙂

And that was a miracle to me!

Healings & Harmoniums: Krista Visits a Sikh Temple

Back in October I had the pleasure of visiting a Sikh temple with my good friend and fellow healer, Dr. Bhushan Sood whom I had met through the Ontario Hypnosis Centre. This is what I discovered…

Bhushan and I had participated in many healing circles together, including work in past life regression, interlife (life between lives) in which I learned of my true mission here, and CCMBA/CCMSC Hands-on-Healing techniques.  We along with other colleagues would get together and discuss our progress, and he was continually fascinated by the spiritual aspects of what we had discovered through our work in hypnosis, specifically the channelled material that came through me when I was in a state of deep metaphysical awareness.

Since then I had become an avid writer, healer and hypnotist in my own right, taking on clients at my home and at my new office in Toronto, while raising two kids (both teenagers now) with my husband in Scarborough, and conducting workshops and retreats worldwide, including Tuscany…

I had become inspired (and instructed through my angelic helpers) to include music in my work, and had begun composing some simple melodies and songs that might help in relaxing and connecting clients and groups in song. I thought I needed an instrument, and always loved the sound of the harmonium.  I knew Bhushan was Hindu and very connected to his community, and figured he would know someone who might sell me one for a reasonable price. I reached out, and within 2 weeks Bhushan had located a friend at the Sikh Temple in Mississauga who had one available.

So on a fine fall day, I headed out to Mississauga to meet Bhushan at his home, where he was just finishing work with a young gentleman by the name of Colin. I felt instantly connected to this “boy” who had spent some time in the military. Bushan began to explain what I did, and that I am connected to the angelic, and suddenly I felt such a powerful flow of love and inspiration as I spoke and listened to this young man. I knew I had been brought there for a reason, and so began to share and answer his questions about spiritual matters, and even counsel him on how he could find his way as well. I felt truly inspired to be able to help this young man, in collaboration with Bhushan who had total faith and trust in me.

We headed out to find Bhushan’s friend who would guide us to the Sikh temple, but had to meet him first at the local mall where he was with a seniors group through the United Way. He and his friends were sitting around a large table eating and enjoying each other’s company and welcomed us in to enjoy a light meal and tea. I was delighted! This was a whole new experience for me…

One of the gentleman asked Bhushan in his own language for us to introduce ourselves, and so we stood up and did so. Then Bhushan stood up and elaborated a bit more in describing what I did with the angelic realm, healings and miracles, and from there, many questions came forward from eager participants!  I answered their questions in English, while Bhushan translated. Then I offered to give a blessing which I channelled from the angelic, and afterward a man who was legally blind proclaimed he could see me. Bushan guided me to touch him on the forehead along with the others, as we graciously left with our guide and headed for the Sikh temple.

As we arrived, I felt peaceful and eager to discover what it was like to be inside one of these holy places, so different from any experience I have had in my own lifetime being mainly identified as protestant Christian with no official religious upbringing. I had frequented many churches along the way but had developed my own spiritual practice and healing work, and admired the community aspect and ritual of more organized churches, temples and places of worship and gathering.

We were guided along the hallways of the temple, noting the paintings of warring factions, and the blood of martyrs. This was disturbing to my peaceful sensibilities, but I watched and observed with respectful wonder at how others expressed their beliefs. We entered the temple space, which was wide and open, with an elaborate shrine, including the swords and other implements to defend the faith. I knelt down in respect and prayed.

The harmonium seemed the last and least important part of our journey together! Although we enjoyed the banter of negotiation, and I did buy one after all, I confess I have hardly played it, but am grateful that it was the catalyst for such an important day.  I will never forget the joy of meeting Bhushan’s friends, healing with Colin and the seniors’ group, and the lessons of tolerance, non-judgement and love for all. Miracles have no face, no culture, and no religious preferences – for they are truly gifts of the spirit that work through us to each other, and bless all as one people under God. Amen.

P.S. Bhushan allowed me to take some brief shots of film, which I assembled into a video to share with my community on The Miracle Network Toronto – Miracle TV (youtube), and so I post this here for your enjoyment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbHNUbN0v1k
