What People Are Saying...“Traveling with Christel is unbelievable and very special; she brings magic to every trip! You see things most people do not ever encounter and there is always a teachable moment. In Africa, she taught us how to call in specific animals and to our amazement, those specific animals appeared! Even the guides were in awe as there were many things they had never seen before they guided a trip with Christel. She continually points out the interconnection of everything in this world and how our thoughts and choices make a difference, plus the fun and laughter makes each trip life-changing. Each day on a Christel adventure is different and filled with wonder in its own right. I bring home her teachings and they have generalized to other areas of my life, opening me to the Truth that anything is possible. –Diane Avalon _____________________________________________________________________________ Traveling with Christel is magical. I learned so much about myself and the world adventuring with Christel in Africa. The insights and perspectives she shared taught me that my attitude and energy has an affect on everything and how important it is to bring positivity into the world. And then there is the FUN and JOY Christel brings to each adventure.” —Kristie Lemmon, MBA
A JOURNEY OF FORGIVENESS: April 18th – 23rd, 2017
To My Students:
“I received intuitive instruction, aka guidance, to walk the Camino de Santiago trail with an important mission. As you may know, Pope Francis declared 2016 a year of mercy, sending out that energetic broadcast for all, regardless of your religious affiliation. It’s about setting down your past mistakes and getting on with your purpose in life.
After meditating on the meaning of mercy, which is “compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish,” I understood why I was called to walk “the Way,” as it is known.
First, I’ve worked with many Transgressor Archetypes who cannot let go of their past mistakes or transgressions [acts that go against a code of conduct]. These mistakes, real, perceived, and often blown out of proportion carry shame, embarrassment and pain without redemption or relief, sometimes lasting a lifetime.
And it’s not just those with a transgressor archetype who have difficulty forgiving themselves for past errors. Sometimes we can be really hard on ourselves for being human. These errors, which are often kept secret, can actually kill people. [just look at the precursors to breast cancer that I’ve written about].
Second, I had the privilege of reading the last words of wisdom from terminally ill patients at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. I am paraphrasing, but the gist is, “please don’t let your past mistakes hold you back from your ability to be amazing and do wonderful things in our world—we need you.”
Therefore, I am collecting petitions for mercy and forgiveness for any and all mistakes, transgressions, errors or wrongdoings, you may have committed in your past, real or perceived, and will personally carry them on the Camino trail, also known as the walk of St James. I will bring them to the Pilgrim’s Mass in Santiago, on April 22, 2017 at 7:30pm and release them with compassion and forgiveness so you can set down your burdens and move forward in your life.
Your petitions need to be mailed, not emailed, as I want to bring your energy to the healing ceremony at the Pilgrim’s Church in Santiago. You don’t need to sign your name, simply write down what from your past interrupts your life and set an intention to receive healing.
MAIL YOUR PETITIONS: Christel Nani | PO Box 14001 | Ketchum, ID | 83340 [please add the word “petitions” to the outside of your envelope]. Click to download a petition form.
And finally, I am inviting any pilgrims who would like to share this spiritual journey with me. Fly to Madrid, and connect a short flight to Santiago, and I have taken care of the rest. You need only focus on walking, and it will be a fair amount of walking. Most of us are not used to walking 10-15 miles per day, but it’s amazing how much we can do when it is for the benefit of another.
We will stay in hotels with meals provided, luggage transferred and if for some reason, you run out of energy you’ll be driven to the next town to rest until we catch up with you. So you don’t have to worry if you’re not a big walker; there are pilgrims in their seventies and eighties who walk this trail, and truly, it’s about your desire to help others and yourself.
If you feel moved or called to help someone feel the freedom of forgiveness, please join me. It’s going to be an extraordinary experience packed with fun and laughter [a typical Christel Adventure] and a unique way of giving something back to the world and being of service to those in pain, and for those who feel stuck in the mire of their past.
I’ll make it easy for you and have lots of information for you such as which flights we are taking, and how to begin training for the Camino, what to bring and more. Don’t sweat the small stuff…
Think of your higher purpose.
Blessings to all —- Christel
