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.

africa 2 – I am not the goat whisperer

We had some left over money after buying the seeds for our families and thought buying each family a goat would support their autonomy. And BTW, buying a goat in Africa is quite the endeavor. No one wants to part with their goats. But happiness prevailed!

When in Africa, we are very “hands on.” I don’t feel comfortable simply giving money — We negotiated the purchase of the seed and also the goats. Giving money sometimes results in lost money, and actually, we enjoy the adventures. I mean truly, when was the last time you had a goat raffle?

First, we put secret numbers on each goat and the families randomly picked a number and then the chaos, oops, I mean fun began, matching a family to a goat. Big goats, littles goats, jumping goats, but mostly running in all directions goats.

It was almost as hard as herding cats, oh wait, that’s what I do when I take my groups on the Adventure Retreats. If you’ve ever tried to get a group together for brunch at a restaurant, try getting a group together in a safari truck with all their gear, or tucking them in at night while lions are on the hunt and growling around the camp. Like I said, herding cats is easier, but I love what i do and I love them! –Christel

 

take care of the children as we are all one big family

africa – first trip – synchronicity

thank you for caring
thank you for caring

from our new family: That they would “pay it forward,” when back on their feet. And they did, and so it began.

 

I know it was a divinely inspired synchronistic happening for the six of us to be at the same gate and at the same time as the families looking for help. Not a hand out, but genuinely  needed help.

Five plantings had withered from the lack of water, and now their children were withering too. A mother will go to great lengths to save her children; heroic feats, a swallowing of pride, and often, a release of the need to feel guilty. A fierce determination to survive met us at the back gates to our safari reserve.

And we are grateful that synchronicity and the women and children who found us! –Christel
