A Personal Invitation From My Heart to Yours

A Personal Invitation

February 24th, 2021

“Soul-Whispers” Exercise: Activate the Energy of Decision Making

You’ll find all the “Emerging Resilient” Group program details HERE. Even if you think it isn’t for you, I invite you to try this 5 minute”Soul-Whispers” Exercise:

Print this out if possible (yep, it’s really 9 pages!) then sit down with a hot cup of tea or coffee in a quiet space with an itention to read this with all 3 of your brains (yep, you really have 3!)

Your brain may say “yikes! stay right where you are!”

Your heart may say “ahhh, this really resonates!”

Your gut may say “this is what I’ve been waiting for!”

Or maybe not, which is totally cool.

But, at least you’ll get a glimpse into how I’ve said YES to my own Transformation, which has led to a new spiral of personal growth;

And how I’ve said YES to my own professional Expansion, created to Empower and Equip mission-driven women like you with Lifeskills for Resilience.

This, like every other growth spiral in my personal and professional journey hasn’t been without resistance..

“I’m a high-touch person… that’s why I created the Synergy Success Circle, Elevate and Amplify Mastermind groups to meet in person and that’s the only way they’ll be able to serve women at the highest level! WRONG

“I’m not good at technology…I freeze and forget what to do. I don’t know how to keep track of what I’m saying and still try to make eye contact with those I’m speaking to on Zoom… where the heck am I supposed to look? At the camera or the darn screen?!! And who moved the damn mute button??” WRONG

“I really don’t even like technology, and when COVID hit I had decided to cut back on screen time! Maybe I’m just supposed to ride this out” WRONG

“Plus there’s no way you can create the same warm, welcoming energy–the inviting sacred space, make new connections and deepen old friendships online.” WRONG

“Yes, I’m trained and perfectly qualified to send distance reiki healing to individuals and groups… but I’m a high-touch person! Since 2010 I’ve been doing Reiki healing sessions in person. I’ve created an organic and powerful process that blends my intuitive gifts, coaching, and energy healing that cannot possibly be as effective at a distance. I don’t want to, I can’t, and I won’t! WRONG

It’s not about whether or not we will meet resistance when circumstances that require us to change. It’s not about how long we hide out convinced that “nothing new will never work as well as my old way”

It’s about sitting with and befriending the resistance. It’s recognizing how fear keeps us captive in our coping cycles. We can cope or we can expand, but we cannot do both at the same time. We can say yes to fear or we can choose love, even if we don’t see the way forward. A little willingness is all that is needed to begin shifting inertia to initiative.

I’d love to continue growing, coaching, serving, and celebrating your success as you navigate the peaks and valley’s of the “Heart-Centered Heroine’s Journey!”

February 18th, 2021

You’re Invited! Emerging Resilient Group Coaching Program begins March 1st

Hygge [hoo-gah] verb

  1. the art of building sanctuary and community, of inviting closeness and paying attention to what makes us feel open-hearted and alive;
  2. to create well-being, connection and warmth;
  3. a feeling of belonging to the moment and to each other;
  4. celebrating the everyday.

Hey, Soul Sister! How would YOU like to:

  • CONNECT to a higher level of Self-Awareness? (to live by design, not default)
  • INSPIRE yourself to embody a healthy Self-Love? (to love others more)
  • SERVE in the highest way through Self-Leadership? (to lead others better)
  • AMPLIFY your soul purpose and positive impact? (to create a We-Centered world)

Beginning on March 1st, we’ll gather to begin a year-long intimate virtual group journey towards embracing the joys of a Restorative lifestyle – working smart, playing hard, and resting well so we can become Synergy Strong—meeting our personal and professional challenges with more grace, grit, and gratitude.

This Innovative Program, “EMERGING RESILIENT” is deliberately crafted to Soulfully EMPOWER with inspiration and motivation and Strategically EQUIP with practical energy management tools to create Balanced Success without burning out. The Transformative Synergy of our group becomes a catalyst for growth and a sacred container for practicing new skills in a community of like-hearted women.   

 The Mission of this Program:

Emerging Resilient will provide meaningful support, structure, encouragement, accountability, clarity, training, laughter, mindset shifts – in an unconditionally accepting, relaxed environment where you feel seen, heard, and supported.

em·pow·ered:

  • the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights.
  • increasing the capacity of individuals or groups to make choices about what they want and to transform those choices into desired actions and outcomes.

equipped:

  • ready and prepared by having all that is necessary, useful or appropriate for a specific purpose

Soul Sisters are Precious (& the Secret Sauce to Keep Burnout at Bay!)

Close-knit “soul sisters” keep you growing, stretching, and learning – they keep you accountable to your highest values. They make you laugh and feel more like yourself when you’re with them.

I used to think that friends were the people who unconditionally comforted you when you felt wronged, showed up for you when you felt needy and insecure, joined you in righteous indignation when you felt angry, and validated you when life isn’t going your way. But also my most valuable friends are the ones who stand for my soul, even when that means saying something my ego doesn’t want to hear.

When a friend stands for your soul, she holds you accountable to your highest potential and expects you to do the same for her. When a friend stands for your soul, she understands how your ego operates—and loves and accepts you in spite of-even because of- what she knows. But she doesn’t sit by complacently when she watches you create your own suffering. She calls you on it lovingly and invites you out of your conditioning and into the direction of your highest self.

Will you indulge yourself for one precious moment? Imagine what you could be, do, or have with a record-high return on the energy, time, and resources that you invest in this year…Consider gifting yourself the love and support you deserve to create a life you love.  And say “YES” to this life-changing journey with a phenomenal tribe of soul-sisters.

“There is a space for you in the world with your name on it… and your part is the lead part. No matter who you are, it’s the lead. Because only you can play it, and without you it doesn’t happen.” ~Flo Magdalena

“I am a beacon of light shining in the darkness; within me burns the fire of inspiration urging me onward and upward. I feed this fire with Grace, Grit, and Gratitude—offering space to everything & everyone, including myself, in which to awaken, remember, decide, and grow. From this place of Transformative Synergy we all surrender to the process of first F.L.Y.ing, and then SOARing, into a higher state of Being.” ~ Christina Kunkle

SOUL-CARE SUNDAYS!

Monthly Group Distant Reiki Healing Sessions

Our group sessions will be 7-8pm on the last Sunday of each month.

February 28th * March 28th * April 25th * May 30th * June 27th * July 25th * August 29th * Sept 26th * October 31st * November 28th * December 26th * January 30th * February 27th  

It’s hard for our practical brains to process, but we don’t need to be physically in the same place at the same time for a Reiki healing, as energy is not limited by space or time. Reiki is a universal life force energy that surrounds us all and nourishes every living thing.

This will be a powerful way to end each month, clearing out what no longer serves, and welcoming a fresh new month with a boost of clarity, balance, and serenity.

At the start of our group session, I will say a prayer, and set the intention that the Reiki energy is received for your highest good. If you’ve given me permission to work with your energy in this way, there’s nothing special you need to do except be open to soaking up the healing waves.

A few Tips to Make Your Experience Most Enjoyable:

No matter what you’re engaged in or where you are as I’m sending Reiki your way, it will reach you. While it’s not necessary to be still or quiet, if possible, I invite you to treat this as sacred, meditative time. Perhaps take a long, deep, bubbly bath with 1 cup Epsom salts and 1 cup baking soda.

Create a peaceful environment, light a few candles, play some relaxing music.

Here’s one of my favorites that you may want to try from Youtube: 432 Hz | Reiki Music For Healing At All Levels | Emotional, Physical, Mental & Spiritual Healing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNu6CCWMbHc

If you’re at home, sit in your favorite meditation space, a beautiful spot in your backyard, or lie on your bed if you feel like a rest. Make the space comfortable with cushions and pillows; use your crystals, essential oils, and soft lighting to create atmosphere.

If Possible, Devote this time to Soul-Care.

Sit, or lie comfortably, and make sure you have a cozy throw handy. Close your eyes and take several deep, slow breaths to relax. Tell your chatty mind that it is not needed right now. No-one needs you right now, you have no-where else to be, just here.

Bring your focus to the sounds around you, if thoughts or questions or ideas come into your mind, just let them be there, and then go. Don’t latch on and go down that path. If you feel your attention wander, just return to following your breath in and out.

Re-affirm your intention to receive the healing energy being sent your way.

That is all you need to do. Forget concepts of time according to the clock, or your current physical location. When I receive group Reiki I feel more calm and peaceful. Whatever your experience please trust that whatever you need, will be received in the perfect way for you. This may seem a bit hard to believe; but suspend your doubts and skepticism for this time.

Go back to your breath, a simple way to stay focused on the moment is to slowly count your breaths, 1 on the in breath, 2 on the out breath. Start again. And again. And so on. Keep it really simple.

Just relax in this space for as long as you feel comfortable, it may be 5 minutes, it may be half an hour. You may fall asleep, nothing wrong with that – unless you’re in the bath, that’s probably not a great idea. (Ha!) When you feel ready, again, take 3 really deep, really slow, really big breaths to tell your body it’s time to change gears.

Don’t jump up and rush back into “doing mode”. Try to imagine a protective buffer around you, keeping you feeling relaxed. Drink extra water before and after to keep the energy flowing.

Take a moment to write down any “soul whispers” —many golden ideas come to you in these quiet moments!

Then gently go about your evening, taking note of anything that comes up; you might think of a particular situation or person, something that’s been bothering you that you are ready to address, or you might have some inspired ideas pop up.

Pay attention to your dreams, as insights often come during restorative sleep.

Be sure to share your experiences and be on the lookout for a follow-up email summary of my collective insights and take-away’s within 24 hours.

My greatest wish is that this add-on Reiki boost will help amplify your intentions to Relax, Balance, and Heal.

Love,

Christina

Celebrating The Power of Partnership

Celebrating The Power of Partnership

I am beyond thrilled to be joining Dr. Arlene McCain as a Power Partner; bringing Reiki Healing and Holistic Resilience Coaching into the sacred space of McCain Whole Health CareTogether our partnership creates Transformative Synergy; amplifying our intentions to help others embrace a higher level of health and well-being than we could have alone. 

Shortly after opening my life coaching practice in 2008, I wrote this daily prayer; asking to be divinely guided as I began sharing my work in the world: “God, please use me as an instrument of peace and healing. I turn my personal and professional life over to you. Give me an extra dose of courage and self-confidence as you lead me to cross paths with those who are meant to teach me what I need to learn, as well as those who I’m meant to serve, support, and impact in a positive way through my work and life; Amen”. 

This prayer became a catalyst for God-winks that guided me, one step at a time, to be in the divine right places…it sparked a series of coincidences that made me smile, look up, and say “thank you!” One such moment was after meeting Arlene in 2013 at a birthday party, and immediately recognizing her as a kindred spirit. The roles we’ve played in one another’s lives since then have gone through a metamorphosis. First she became a 1:1 client, then a good friend and group mastermind participant; and then a trusted soul sister. Back when her vision for McCain Whole Health Care was still just a seed, she spoke of “Embracing the Fierce and Feminine in Modern Medicine”.

In a role reversal I later became her patient; grateful to be on the receiving end of exceptional care and unconditional support during a bout with pneumonia. We’ve intentionally continued growing, dreaming, and laughing together in what we call “Heart-storming sessions”.  She has borne witness to my journey through darkness as I healed from past trauma, lending me her strength. 

We are all called to a Heroine’s (or Hero’s) journey. Much of the path we must walk alone, where we are initiated through trials that lead us to our calling. While we have to do it by ourselves, we cannot and were never meant to do it all alone. We can’t become ourselves, by ourselves! The transformation by fire, so to speak, helps us discover our strength and hone our gifts. Ultimately, it becoming a unique blend of “medicine” infused with our essence, that we are called to bring back and offer the world. Arlene and I have been walking parallel paths, and are offering our soul medicine to those who are meant to receive it. All that we’ve shared together has been preparing us for this beautiful, sacred, new collaboration!

Can you imagine the Possibilities that will Emerge by standing United, Resilient, Empowered and Equipped?
