Compassion has the power to heal.

compassion has the power to heal

Have you ever tried to “improve” yourself while feeling shame, or being critical or judgmental of your past? It doesn’t work, but compassion will.

Compassion has the power to heal, as demonstrated in a recent class. One student shared a secret that had plagued her for years. Christel channeled healing energy for her and the class and in the midst of her self hate, shame and judgment, a moment of grace was witnessed by all; she released her past and embraced the higher vibration of love and forgiveness.

This experience demonstrated the power of self compassion to heal and transform in ways that guilt and criticism never will. Being compassionate with ourselves brings us to the energy of love and acceptance for ourselves AND others.

Christel knows from her energy Reads the illnesses that can develop when one is critical and unloving toward themselves. Learning true compassion is but one road toward healing.

Rebecca Grace, Psy.D. explained the research showing the futility of using self criticism to improve, change habits or be a better person. (even though people believe that it will).

You can learn to be compassionate with yourself, surrounded by like-minded seekers of the light, health and high vibration in our classes. If the topics of positivity, resilience, happiness, compassion and the science of how your brain is wired for high vibration is of interest to you, be a part of our Live Broadcasts.

a moment of grace

Know that it is wise to be open to love when it finds you.” –Christel

When you have been shocked or injured, betrayed or collapsed in the center of grief and loss, a part of you gets left behind in that time period. It’s partly a natural defense mechanism and at times, a choice to avoid these painful memories that could interfere with daily life or pursuing your guidance.

Whatever the reason, you must retrieve that part of you in order to heal. I had taught in a healing class how to call back the piece of you that had been traumatized or wounded, and thus left out in the ethers.

 I recalled my compound fracture injury to my finger while deep in the bush in Africa. All my healing efforts in the months thereafter, just didn’t seem to help. My finger remained painful and unhealed between June and September. One afternoon while energizing my meridians, I realized I couldn’t feel any energy in my finger because I had left it in Africa and needed to call it back.

But sometimes when an angelic intervention, a healing unasked for, a moment of spiritual synchronicity, or a God inspired experience occurs, that requires no instruction or technique. In fact, to paraphrase C.S. Lewis, we often have no awareness of the magic in the moment.

Until afterwards.

I had such an experience during an early morning pre-class walk to enjoy the colorful displays of Fall. I was walking and without knowing how it began, heard myself speaking about a painful time in my past that had unexpectedly changed the course of my life. Pulled away from what I wanted and steered toward a different life, I tried to accept my new direction, grieve with grace and heal a loss that had altered all that I held dear and sacred.

But a morning walk, the right person, the right time, and an unexpected and brief conversation became a moment of grace that called back a part of me in need of healing. Neither of us saw it coming and certainly we could not have planned it. That moment healed a part of me that longingly has often wondered, “what if…”

A moment of grace changes you, healing your cellular memory whereby you stop wistfully musing how different your life would be had it not been interrupted or altered by significant life events.

These wonderful moments are available to each of us and occur spontaneously and without fanfare when two or more are gathered and basking in the glorious light that resonates with our souls. Thus do we allow ourselves and others to see the gift of our own personal divinity.

This I taught in Healing 101 and as I watched you channel the healing light for each other, you came to know the healer within you. Know that what you learned is real because you had the experience for yourself and others and can repeat it at any time you choose.

When relaxed, without ego, and opened to healing, many things are possible as the light of God channels through us for ourselves and one another. Your faces softened with awe as you discovered these healing energies in yourself and others. And I trembled with joy when at times, I saw the glow of celestial light around you and knew your experiences would forever change you to seek out the light.

I feel blessed to share these experiences with you, and have come to peace in knowing that the turn my life took years ago led me to where I am supposed to be. Thank you for this healing insight, and know that it is wise to be open to love when it finds you. –Christel

lions out for a stroll in the Mara

Christel Nani showed students how to “call in” lions using their powerful energetic signature. We brought in elephants–loving and family oriented and now the lions–all about accessing your inner power when people hurt you. And next is a leopard which is much harder!

Thank you for caring about the elephants!

I want to say thank you and share a picture of my elephant, named Sities, orphaned at seven weeks old, due to to poaching. She came desperately seeking company and how wonderful she found a new family.
Saying good night to a cutie pie

Many of you wrote back to say you had adopted an elephant at the Sheldrick Center. How awesome!

I want to say thank you and share a picture of my elephant, named Sities, orphaned at seven weeks old, due to to poaching. She came desperately seeking company and how wonderful she found a new family.

Remember that elephant energy is all about family, tribe and the heart. They feel deeply—loneliness, sadness joy and grief, and even though they tussle now and again, they stick together; they understand that love is not conditional.

In both Tanzania and in the Mara I taught my group how to “call in the elephants.” They surrounded our truck with curiosity and love and after the mothers sniffed our scent, allowed the youngster to come to us as well. It was life-changing as our heart chakras opened and tears flowed freely down each cheek.

This is not to say our driver wasn’t a bit nervous as the elephants reached their trunks to us and stared deeply in to our eyes as an adolescent male came closer as well. He could have easily tipped over our truck if startled. We held our breath and barely moved and just quietly opened our hearts and loved them back.

Seeing and feeling the elephants in the wild is amazing and I can understand how those elephant handlers can give up a year of their life to care for these orphans. Here’s a brief video of the youngsters at the Sheldrick Center coming back from a happy play time. Such a contrast from how they were found.

I’m working on the next trip to the Kenya in the fall and it includes a visit to the orphanage—an experience that will never leave you. We can learn a lot from elephants.

And PS. After the elephant encounter, my students asked me how to call in a lion!

Stay tuned,

Metabolic Syndrome Alert

Preventive Medicine Tip:
And for those of you struggling with metabolic syndrome, remember that one of the precursors for diabetes is forgetting, abandoning, or getting too busy or caught in your circumstances to even allow yourself to dream. So start dreaming!

How to achieve your dream:

  1. Write down your dreams, and allow yourself to dream big! The energy of excitement and anticipation has to swirl inside of you.
  2. Create a vision board to have visual reminders of your dream that help keep the energy alive and activated within you.
  3. Step outside your comfort zone. Take a chance; take a risk. A piece of guidance, so simple yet direct was heard early in the morning: “Nothing will change unless you move.”
  4. Find your cheering section and avoid the curmudgeons, victims or naysayers.
  5. Look for synchronicity—people and events will arrive in your path to accommodate your dream—make sure you pay attention these resources.
The Sheldrake Center takes care of orphaned elephants. Thank you.

Elephants, Love and Commitment

Several times our jaunts to Kenya included a visit to the Sheldrake Center, where orphaned elephants are given love and care and companionship.
It’s all about love for our orphans,

The Sheldrake Center in Kenya takes in orphaned elephants. It’s all about love.

Several times our jaunts to Kenya included a visit to the Sheldrake Center, where orphaned elephants are given love and care and companionship. Some of the babies lost their mothers and fathers mere weeks after they entered this world, due mostly to poachers who killed for ivory.

For an elephant, family is all important and a calf’s very existence depends upon its mother’s milk for the first two years of life. There are men who adopt these orphans and make a commitment of at least one year to eat, sleep and play with these babies.

Watching the babies being fed milk from rather large bottles just melts my heart. And of course play time with beach balls is always a sight to make you smile. In the evening the babies are put to bed, covered in a blanket only to fall sound asleep with their loving and protective caretakers right beside them.

They used to assign one parent to one elephant, but if that parent got sick or had to leave for a few days, the babies would cry for them and did not fare well. Now, they rotate the parents, so the youngsters get to know their extended family, just like in an elephant family where the elephants come together and help one another. Sometimes you need a village…

I asked one of the men why he made such a commitment and he answered, “love.” Kind of blew me away but I saw that love in his eyes gazing upon his sleeping young charge. So I’m thinking maybe in honor of Daphne Sheldrake, who recently passed, we could pay that love forward. You can foster an elephant to support her cause or you can choose to open your heart and let your words come from a loving space to the next three people you speak with.

Love is powerful. Love is healing. Let’s try to be more loving to each other. Let’s do it in honor of Dame Sheldrake who will be sorely missed. She had a vision and stepped up to make that vision a reality.

Sometimes, we need to let love nudge us in the right direction.

I am so grateful for her work and tip my hat in her honor.

Much love to you,

-Christel

3 techniques to heal the hurt heart

How about a gift of healing? Recently in our Positivity Class we taught about “Healing the Hurted Heart.”

In the Positivity class we taught three tips that help to ease heart pain. This pain may be from an old relationship, a loss, a betrayal, a dashed dream or a trauma from long ago.

The first idea is one that can bring all healing to a standstill if indulged – the need to be right. And oh, how we yearn to be right when we’ve been hurt. And many times, we are actually in the right. But being right can easily lead us to feeling justified in our pain. Thus we begin to wait for an apology, amends, or some kind of validation that we’ve been hurt. Sadly, one can wait for years, or like in the play, “Waiting for Godot,” by Samuel Beckett, wait for that which never comes.

Second, we need to embrace Spiritual Responsibility. This means looking closely at our part in what happened and resolve to change our behavior in the future. This isn’t about blame, but rather finding one’s power. The power to change our future and heal a hurt. Tough medicine, but the spiritual path sometimes requires us to grow up quickly and decisively.

And third, is an elegantly simple healing technique where we gently put our pain in a box for a few minutes a day. Then visualize what it would be like to be without that pain and in doing so, we begin to change our cellular memory and eventually our energetic broadcast. Our focus spreads outward rather than inward. [Listen to the video and you’ll understand why it works].

We’ve heard from our students who tried the techniques and feel better. Give them a try and experience these benefits for yourself.

For more on these techniques, watch Christel’s video on youtube to help you understand these points in more depth and help you in applying them immediately to your own life.

And don’t forget to subscribe to Christel’s youtube channel so you don’t miss out on any healing tips and techniques.
Stay tuned,

With love,

What is your legacy?

Moby Dick, Gifts, Statues and Death

Moby Dick, Gifts, Statues and Death

What is your legacy?
What is your legacy?

Last week I spoke of the connection between dreams and diabetes. Today, I’d like to speak about creating a legacy or leaving a gift for the world. Face it, we are all going to die and while a statue might be nice, I like to think of how I have helped others in their quest for betterment, and also to share the love in my heart. I am getting my life in order and choosing my gifts for the world and hope you do the same.

Remember, a gift is something we give willingly without any expectations of a return gift or payment, and without any expectations of how that gift will be used. Meaning, a free and heartfelt moment of giving that brings great joy to the “giver.”

Too often, I have seen supposed gifts, or giving thinly disguised as a way to try and control another, or reap benefit from that gift. Those are not gifts; those are second chakra, “hey, look at me how wonderful I am,” actions. Gifts are not taken back in the heat of an exchange; gifts are not a way to try and control another; gifts are not a means to manipulate others. They are given from the heart with love and joy regardless of the outcome.

I have been blessed to receive some wonderful gifts such as an Italian horn filled with love and protection, a pendant from the Camino that reminds me daily of all the different paths to God; a pen that I use often and with great joy, adorable llamas for my home, many heartfelt cards filled with words I so cherish, and yes, a barbecue that rocks my world!

These gifts were given without strings or expectations and emanate love for me and to me. Wow, I so want to pay this love forward. One of the gifts I have chosen is to sponsor an ethical, motivated and all around wonderful man who is dedicated to helping children learn and bettering his community in the Mara. That would be Peter, and I am personally sponsoring him for four years of university. This gift could be called one of my legacies, as I am “handing down an education” to someone I care about. Education is important to me and also a great joy in my life.

Now your gift could be as simple as ending a rift between friends, planting some trees, opening your heart to one in pain, writing words of encouragement and guidance to one younger and less wise than you; there are so many gifts you can bequeath to our world.

It’s never too early to put your life in order and choose what is important to you. Don’t wait, don’t play it safe, be in charge of your legacy. I want to look down from above and watch Peter [no, not that Peter!] read “Moby Dick,” the most well known yet not fully read books of our time. Oh, did I mention, he wants to study English Literature, an absolute love of mine?

I had the great fortune to meet his mother who is so grateful and happy for her son. For a parent to see a child have their dream come true, I don’t know…Does it get any better than that? I’ll let you know as I continue to formalize my legacy and consider how to leave my love for others. —Christel

Being happy is part of healing your spirit

Dreams, Diabetes and Balloons

Christelnani newsletters

Success is defined by Maya Angelou as “liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.” Churchill said that “success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.” But what does it mean to fulfill a dream?

“A dedication to become happy and a willingness to not only ask for, but then to receive and accept more in your life.” —Christel Nani

Woo Hoo! Another dream comes true. With great pleasure, I shout out congratulations to the newest and probably most excited Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloon Handler, herein named as MTDPBH or MBH for short.

According to a recent Daily News article, these positions are very hard to get and usually take about five years of applying and hoping. For Ms. MBH, it took less than a year. She did, however, have to take on a second job, as you must work at Macy’s to even be considered for the parade.

Keeping the goal in her mind’s eye, helped her work double shifts and long hours. Learning that almost all balloon handlers work at a New York Macys, did not deter her, but rather activated her archetypal energy of a Detective to figure out the application process. And when they neglected to even email her back a rejection letter, she persevered and essentially, haunted them.

Viola! It worked.

Did everyone support her dream? No. Was everyone happy that she achieved her dream? No. And that’s the thing about pursuing your dream: you have to surround yourself with people who support you, and insulate yourself from people who do not encourage your highest good.

So to recap: Following a dream, first requires some dedication to your happiness and a willingness to receive more than you presently have in your life. And second, to create a support system of friends and family who value your happiness.

As a supporter of MBH’s dream, I will be at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in November for the very first time. If you live in NY or plan to be in NY at that time, let us know and we can
form a cheering section.

The Camino Walk in Spain: A journey of forgiveness

Walking the Camino for Forgiveness

The “Camino Happens After the Camino”

As many of you know, a group of twenty walked many kilometers of the camino in Northern Spain in late April. It was a journey of forgiveness and at the end of the walk, all petitions of mistakes and more were released in a healing ritual held in the St James Cathedral in Santiago. The light that surrounded and filled us still leaves me in awe of God’s love.

IMG 2170

So many paths to find God

A Powerful Moment

Choosing love and forgiveness allows you to reclaim your power and own the real you, diminishes the self absorption necessary to haunt yourself with past mistakes and wipes the slate clean to end the stories of self recrimination that demand punishment. This powerful moment happens any time you choose forgiveness over self-punishment and allows you to move forward with an unburdened heart ready to hear the call of Spirit.

Pastoral countryside in Spain

A Higher Purpose

Walking the beautiful countryside with outdoor dining and gentle inner reflection was an adventure. Our lives are the result of many decisions made each day. Each moment is an opportunity to choose differently, to choose a higher vibration, to seek guidance and even ask for help to become a better version of who we were yesterday.

Perservering for a higher purpose, even those with some of the largest and most painful blisters on determined feet I’ve ever seen, (and that’s coming from an ER/trauma nurse), not only finished the walk, but even walked many extra kilometers to help another.

IMG 8741

Healing requires a contract

Our journey began…

with each walker committing to honor themselves and allow forgiveness to enter their hearts and minds. From there, angelic signs greeted us repeatedly, intuitive knowings became more clear and walkers made life-altering decisions that would shape their futures. Such a reminder that healing requires a contract; we can’t simply ask for help or healing or forgiveness, we must also be willing to receive it.

Journey of Forgiveness

Buon Camino!

Each day we explored the nooks and crannies of the route to gather more stamps for our Compostela, or the Pilgrim’s Passport. Small churches tucked away behind a sheep pasture seemed to be routine, and pastoral paths led us to meet supportive townspeople, and other walkers from around the globe. The universal greeting to fellow pilgrims “buon camino,” rang out amidst the forests, the towns, the small chapels and yes, the small taverns that greeted sore feet and thirsty travelers.

The Camino Path brought many surprises

Sleeping with Gratitude

Walking the Camino was a gentle opportunity to be braver, kinder and happier. Asking for help, being open to miraculous happenings, expressing gratitude and paying attention to the signs around you, can transform your day. Try approaching your day with graciousness, patience and kindness, rather than something different and less enjoyable. It’s always your choice.

The ten hour days on the trail may sound like a lot, but they were lightened with mystical happenings, angelic signs, new friends, determination, a focus and care for others and tons of humor. It was a choice to support and help one another, and to seek out the light in each situation. And at the end of the day there was still laughter, love, and intimate conversation, and THEN, the pilgrims slept!

IMG 2908 1

Ready for Guidance

A Personal Decision

Walking the Camino is clearly an individual and very personal decision. For me, it started with a moment of guidance to carry petitions for forgiveness from around the globe. The message was clear: we cannot continue to put ourselves down or hold on to our past mistakes because these actions stop us from being whole. These actions keep us centered around ourselves and not others, and these actions stand in the way of us answering a call to action by God.

Consider getting guidance to help out a neighbor, but your past missteps remind you that you are not worthy or good enough to be a helper of one in need; in fact you actually feel like a fraud imitating a good and caring person. Forgiveness allows us to shift our focus from ourselves to others. What a great way to be of service in the world, if only to extend kindness and a smile.

The smile? Priceless!

Healing Power of Love

This journey was filled with so much kindness and care for each other as we walked that the healing power of love was clearly evident. But more than the miles was the emotional and spiritual journey that played out for each person; it is clear that walking the Camino brings out what is inside of you in a clear and distinct way. If one is judgmental that ugliness is exaggerated, but if one is kind and generous, those acts seem to take on greater meaning and effect.

For those willing to let go of self judgements, criticisms or berating thoughts, the personal transformations were miraculous. No one can forget the picture of the shaft of beatific light radiating to the center of a group of walkers gathering for a photograph, a divine confirmation of the importance of this journey for each of them.

IMG 8747

Fun does not require permission!

Inspiration, Resilience and Love

I have to share one more story because I am as proud as a peacock!

One student walked despite an injury to his achilles, inspiring us all with his courage and determination. I had intuitively seen that he needed to walk the Camino five years prior in a workshop on the East Coast, knowing it would transform him and indeed it did. But what he brought to the group was equally amazing; his grit and resilience lifted us all. He walked with an injury but without complaint; he walked with a smile and watched out for the needs of others. I hope that one day you get to meet this special person.

IMG 7564

St. James Cathedral, Santiago Spain

There are so many amazing stories from the walk. But there are even more stories from after the walk. Miraculous moments, fantastic new self-knowledge and awareness, mystical happenings and angelic signs continue to occur after returning home.

That’s why they say, “the Camino happens after the Camino.”

Bravo, to all who walked this journey. You have given a beautiful gift of healing. I’ve received so many emails from people who can feel the forgiveness and love and are no longer haunted by their past mistakes; their thoughts are turned to the present and toward others, rather than being self-absorbed with their past.

And a big thank you to all who prayed for us; I know your prayers kept spirits high and laughter in abundance. –Christel

Preventive medicine to reduce stress

conflict, stress and authenticity

As an emergency/trauma nurse in New York City’s busiest hospitals, I saw firsthand the profound damage from illness caused by energy draining conflicts.

Conflict causes stress which burdens the adrenal glands and overworks your immune system. In my energy speak, I say that conflict “lowers your vibration.”

Each illness has a specific low vibration—it’s how I tell them apart and can discern diabetes from an under active thyroid or cancer. I am sensing and Reading the vibration in your body. So naturally, we want to keep our vibration as high and healthy as possible.

Feeling caught in an ongoing tug of war between the life affirming messages from your spirit—clearly intent upon your highest good, and the unconscious programming and rules about what you are supposed to want and how you should behave, can significantly lower your vibration.

These rules—learned throughout your life, were often taught with good intentions from elders and caregivers. Rules like a strong man doesn’t cry, or a good woman takes care of her family before herself, not only limit your authenticity, but can also limit your exceptionality and even cause you to disregard your needs.

Needing to express your grief and pain with tears, or wanting to take care of yourself shouldn’t cause a battle inside of you, or make you feel like something is wrong with you just because you need or want something slightly out of the norm.

These internal conflicts are sometimes hard to spot. Yes, your stomach might churn, a headache might visit, or even a tiredness may overtake you, as you dread making a final decision.

While the physical symptoms are easy to notice, especially in the middle of the night when there are fewer distractions from your supposed no-win situation, there are ways to deal with the conflict before you get the headache. Here are a few steps to help you diagnose and resolve a conflict before your body gets your attention. It’s a form of preventive medicine.

Step 1:

Listen for tell-tale words in your vocabulary. If you hear yourself saying such phrases as “I should…I have to…I’m supposed to…I must….I have no choice…,” it is a sure sign that you’re doing something not because you want to, but because you feel it’s expected of you.

It’s time to sit still and ask yourself, “what is my Truth; do I really want to go to dinner with my friend [who leaves me drained] or would I rather take time for myself to rest and recharge?”

Step 2:

Check in with yourself and get real about your feelings. What do you truly want to do? Stay home? And does that make you feel guilty? [more about that guilt in a moment]. Feeling guilty is a clear sign you are perched between a rock and a hard place and stress is beginning to build.

Step 3:

Identify your limiting tribal belief that’s behind your stress. I recommend you get a copy of my book, “Sacred Choices,” and you will easily see the beliefs that are causing your guilt. Limiting beliefs such as “a good friend stays loyal, especially if you’ve been friends for a long time, or they’ve been there for you during a difficult time and you owe them” can make you feel torn when you are tired and need to stay home and rest. Your heart yearns for rest, but your head says “Just suck it up and go, even if it leaves you feeling tired and drained. You can rest later.”

Let me warn you that in the beginning it can feel difficult to step away from what you believe others want or expect from you, and instead, listen to your growing spirit that knows what would make you happy.

And you might create a karfufle or two. You are breaking age-old rules and that scares people. You may get push back, criticism, or judgement from others when you go off script. What will your tribe think of you? Will they think you are rebellious and perhaps even a bad person to step out of the mold and think such thoughts?

Possibly, but I’ll applaud you because it surely puts you in good company. Did you know that at one time society believed the world was flat and that women could not be good surgeons because they were too emotional?

One at a time, the risk takers are guiding our future to a higher level. Are you one of those courageous and authentic people who are willing to take a risk and speak your truth to help our world evolve?

I am because I know that well-behaved women [and men] rarely make history.

Someone has to step out of the mold for us to embrace our exceptionality and grow as a society. The more exceptional people we have, the faster our world evolves.

Power of your words

Greetings from Kenya!

mariantanda

The power of words—saying you will do something sends an energy in to the world and if we don’t follow through, souls are injured. Theirs, because they do not forget, and ours because we won’t feel good about who we are.

I believe it is as simple as seeing a need, and choosing to do something about it. Being philanthropic doesn’t require any special skills, but rather, a choice to care.

The Mara is a special place of mysterious and unplanned surprises. Just yesterday I jumped from our 4by4 only find a hidden pair of eyes peering curiously at me. The eyes of a baby hyena wondering about my efforts to find a place to relieve myself. Yes, I then made another choice: I would wait!

Today we go back to our school, the Mararianta, and yes, I suppose we have adopted them as part of our extended family, to see the children and how your generous donations have been put to good use. To date, many children have been given missing parts to their school uniforms—a sweater, regulation shoes, a shirt and at times an entire uniform. You see, children cannot go to school in Africa without a uniform, so if a parent cannot afford the uniform her child is denied an education, an education that is so imperative if our world is to come together and change for the better.

Supplies for the classroom were purchased and a tailor has come in to mend the older uniforms—you see, nothing is wasted. Books, pencils, a small salary for the dedicated teachers and a small play area has been added to the school. The sound of children playing and laughing fills a part of me that just has to burst forth in a big smile.

Some children have received a scholarship to attend school. It costs $20 every three months. The Chairman of the school, a wonderful man named Phillip is clear that learning is a group effort; the parents must help out and not just receive. It keeps the exchange clean and we like that philosophy.

During our last visit in September 2016, we learned that the children are hungry and we made a promise to come and build a cafeteria or meal room. Today we meet to map out what began as a cafeteria. You see, the children receive one small amount of porridge each day—that is all they have to eat. How can you learn when you are hungry? How can you grow when you lack food? How can their hearts be eased when their bellies ache? And so we saw a need and chose to address it.

We are just simple people who decided to act when a need was put before us. We don’t belong to any large organization, nor have administrative red tape, we are simply us; a group of caring individuals who chose to make a promise and fulfill that promise. We put the energy of action behind our words.

And so we have returned to Kenya and today will break ground for the new kitchen, meal room and more. We are meeting with the Fundis who are the equivalent of the masons. We’ve had an architect figure out the loads for our stonework and carpenters and more to begin our project which has beautifully grown in to a meal room for joyous meals, a kitchen to infuse the food with love and care, and of course a storage room to harbor food to wait out the droughts that destroy the badly needed crops.

Today we break ground together. The volunteers who generously gave money for our project are with us in spirit, my volunteers who graciously dropped everything to come to Kenya and help out, the parents who want more for their children, the headmaster, teachers and chairman of the school who want to support their extended family and our friend, Jackson Looseyia who has assumed many roles to help our cause. He is cherished for his big heart and extended willingness to support our cause take care of his beloved Mara and give back to his people.

I say thank you to all and keep us in your prayers this day. I haven’t dug a foundation in a while nor laid brick upon brick to create a room, but I do remember how to care, how to love and how to laugh and that will sustain us this day.

Blessings to all,
–Christel

Don’t be mean in 17

Kindness

Listen up world. Did I mention that I LOVE NEW YORK! Okay, maybe I’m slightly biased because that’s where I fell in love for the first time, learned to drive and had some very good and interesting times! But I’m so excited because New York decided [yes, New Yorkers can be a bit ego-centric] that KINDNESS is the theme for 2017. The slogan goes, “don’t be mean in seventeen.”

I’m thrilled because our last Positivity class of 2016 was about finding your theme for 2017, and each participant is starting the new year with a personal theme. You know I don’t do resolutions because, well, because I don’t do them! But themes set an energy for the year. It’s a way to bring in what you need or want, like love, adventure, making better choices, or simply owning your inner gifts and talents. What a way to put your stamp on your new year!

I always suggest to my students that they find a visual representation of their theme to keep that energy flowing all year. I know one woman who will be getting a framed picture of Captain America, and another who is willing to “go for it.” I am so happy for all of you!

Not to worry, there is still time to identify and own your theme for 2017, but if you are still drawing a blank, feel free to use the New York theme of “kindness.” I have a kindness pillow that I use every day. Oh, so subtle!
