Squirrels and Shamanic Messages

squirrels and shamanic messages

when a deer visits you...
Deer remind us to be gentle with ourselves


When animal energy comes to you, it’s not a squirrel digging in your backyard to bury nuts, or a butterfly dancing in front of your car. It’s an energy that comes clearly to you, for you,
and it brings a message you need to hear.

I’m working with a woman who is so generous, kind-hearted and loving, and does so much care-taking for everyone, that somehow, she ends up last on her list. She knows she needs to take care of herself, in fact she has known for a while. but darn it, there always seems to be “just one more thing” that she has to attend to before attending to herself. And don’t you know, by then the sun has set and evening has turned into night?

This gal didn’t address some lower back pain that worsened over time. She is powerful and determined and somehow lived through excruciating pain while taking care of others, but not herself or her spirit.

So was it any surprise while speaking together on the telephone, she exclaimed “you won’t believe this,” but a deer is looking through my window and staring directly at me while I’m sitting on my couch. No actually, it wasn’t a surprise.

Now, this woman doesn’t live in the woods and there have never been deer staring in her window. This was a shamanic healing message brought by a deer, who made sure she saw [heard] the message.

As you know, deer energy reminds us to take better care of ourselves, be more gentle and nurturing with ourselves, but mostly to tell us, to stop ignoring our needs, and be supportive of ourselves.

Is it any coincidence that lower back pain is energy speak for not supporting yourself and your needs?

When your sign comes, please pay attention. C’mon, we couldn’t script this stuff!

we all know how to set ourselves up for failure, but do you know you can just as easily set yourself up for success?

love and miracles

Love is a miracle
Love is a miracle

Miracles are moments that change us. Simple moments like the exchange of a few heartfelt words, a surprise encounter with one you hope to see, or a choice to open to love, can be the catalyst for a miraculous life-changing and healing moment.

It is during these simply profound moments when divine light shines upon us AND we choose to let go of everything but the light, that we can open to the healing power of the unconditional love surrounding us.

And doubt not that divine light will change you. Many of you felt that change and saw it in others this past week during the Healing 101 Seminar, which was my privilege to teach. As you channeled light and healing, I was in awe of your courage to open to God and even more, that you were excited to be pushed further each day.

And all because you were willing to take a risk and follow me into the light. Were you nervous or a bit anxious? Perhaps, but as you channeled the light of God for each other, and allowed the healer within you to emerge.

Without realizing the profundity of that moment, many of you were changed forever by the experience of welcoming of God love to help another. Such a gift, such a moment, and how loving of you to share your open heart with  another. Thank you for taking care of each other.

As your teacher, I feel honored and blessed to know you. —Christel

Christel's resilient crocus
strong and mighty

Resilience [your ability to recover from difficult situations] can be learned and plays an important role toward building your spiritual character. We are actually geared to heal, thrive, and overcome adversity. I know, that we are made to live in the light at a high vibration, and science is once again proving this Truth!

The science of neuroplasticity demonstrates that we are able to make new neurons and neural connections that will override or even replace the old negative patterns we may have learned in early life. These low vibration patterns are the result of physical, emotional and spiritual traumas you endured that come in the form of loss, betrayal, feeling unsafe, a lack of nurturing, and yes, even from making mistakes [especially the ones you deem too big to forgive].

These experiences result in low vibration habits [such as personal browbeating, saying unkind comments to yourself, or creating unnecessary suffering for yourself and others], that produce continued stress that weakens your resiliency and your immune system.

Your stress levels can be measured and good news, lowered. Two important hormones, cortisol, the stress hormone, and oxytocin, the bonding or love hormone play an important role in your overall health. First is cortisol, the stress hormone which in excess wears down your body, and the other, oxytocin known as the bonding or love hormone which can help you change repetitious and harmful mental and emotional patterns and habits.

Knowing that you are not a victim of your past, meaning you don’t have to keep replaying painful emotions and reliving tough times, is healing in and of itself. Knowing that you can actually rewire your brain to own positivity and high vibration more easily is very exciting. Knowing you can embrace healing energy so readily is more exciting. But you have to want it.

How badly do you want it? Can you consider letting go of any low vibration victim archetype energies within you? The archetypal energies that say “what’s the use, why bother trying; things will never change for me,” or “it’s not my fault I am this way; I had a difficult childhood,” or “everyone deserted me and let me down and it has nothing to do with how I behave; it’s them.”

These are the thoughts that take up residence in your brain and create havoc. When you rewire your brain, you let go of the negative hold from your past, and start living in the present. And the present is where you create your life, your tomorrow, your resilience.

In our April 13th recent Global tele class we taught techniques to activate the healing release of oxytocin [which counteracts the effects of cortisol to begin the rewiring process] with promising and almost instantaneous results. I know we can’t always come together in the same conference room, but know that healing can come to you.

In our future Live Broadcast classes we will be teaching more techniques to expand your resilience, raise your vibration and heal painful memories. If you want to be a part of those classes, please register soon as slots are already filling. If you prefer to start your rewiring privately, make an appointment with Dr. Rebecca Grace.

This is a season of rebirth, new beginnings and fresh starts. Each Spring you watch the crocus push through the snow; strong, beautiful and resilient. Celebrate the possibilities… -Christel

healing technique: “cha-ching effect”

From Inspiration to Action…

Follow Michelangelo’s thoughts to understand the “Cha-Ching Effect”. Know what your chakras are trying to teach you so you can align your with your choices with your spiritual guidance . Christel taught in Norway about the flow of energy from inspiration to action, explaining the movement of energy through the chakra system. When you energy backs up your words, she has coined the term, the “cha-ching” effect.

  • Learn to read your energy. When you speak, is your energy behind the words?
  • Understand what your chakras are trying to teach you.
  • Create an authentic life by aligning your spirit with your life choices.
