  • “Spiritual emergence has been defined as “the movement of an individual to a more expanded way of being that involves enhanced emotional and psychosomatic health, greater freedom of personal choices, and a sense of deeper connection with other people, nature, and the cosmos”……emerging from one state to the other…..but yes, the process can become an emergency.

  • This seems to come just at the right time, Christina. If you have an older body and can’t just ‘put on hiking shoes’ and get off into the forest, I would love to know any more suggestions for grounding myself, I use a stone from Iona, Scotland, to hold at night ,and find this very helpful, its a large beach pebble that pretty much fits into my right hand, and I feel its texture and smoothness and rotate it. Am stuck between long prescribed reduction of tranquillisers, and a long-term knowledge and reading of The Masters and spiritual teachers. Horrible place to be, as you can’t explain hardly any of this to the medical profession. Your message came appropriately as am acutely hypersensitive to light, sound, people, and any noise. Wooof, Yoganada says it may seem cruel but Source is burning off all the unwanted bits in a furnace, so that the result is pure iron and useful for so many purposes.
    Any advice on grounding and combating hypersensitivity would be much appreciated. Am in my 70s, beginnings of all this was in my late teens, and was taken the medical way then, am having to reverse that now, and its very very hard. Thanks for this video, lots of useful practices and info.
    Love and peace,

    Hello. Vety interesting. I did not have a spiritual emergency till now. But, who knows? If it appears I will be prepared to deal with.
    Honestly, this moment I have days when I feel nowhere. Lucky me I have in my life people who help me to unground, and feel I belong to this world because I have to take care of them.
    Maybe it would be better to be in such a point, because like this the next moment after this chryses woulds bring a clear way for me further. I don’t know. 🙄

  • Hi Christina, Thank you for that! All through the talk I was thinking of how the word “emergency” can be replaced with EMERGENCE and how it is actually the root word of the former. I found that fact quite interesting and amazing on a few levels.
    Also, a question- about 10 years ago I walked back into my work place (managing around 20 workers, mostly women) after a lunch break and was taken by a “tsunami of love”. I felt as if it was an out of body experience and I was walking on air (literally), and the joy and love in my heart was overwhelming. I wanted to prolong this feeling but did not want to display anything out of the ordinary with my co-workers. I was very aware of their feelings and potential reactions. Since then I’ve had one more repeat wonderful episode of this, again out of the blue, so to speak. I would love to hear your take on this phenomenon.. It seems like I experienced the opposite of a spiritual emergency!
    btw- I just did the heart quiz and came out a turtle 🙂 which after reading the explanation is spot on.
    Again, many thanks, Mimi

  • Hi Christina, this video was informative as always, thank you.
    I don’t know if I have a spiritual awakening or an emergency. I had a spontaneous opening of the crown chakra three times and every time it shook my energy body up big time! I’ve changed a lot in those past years. My question for you: (#askchristina-alert!) what do I do if I can’t bring together my every day life with my spiritual evolution?

      Thank you for sharing and happy to have you in this community! We will add this to our #askchristina list of topics for future videos! ❤️

  • Thank you so much Christina. I am literally blown away.. as everything is starting to make so much sense! I have been searching for answers for some time and I have been immersing myself in so much literature and information, that I was literally lost in confusion.
    Thank you again. I am so looking forward to moving through the next levels with you and seeing where this journey will take me – what began as a very painful experience of loss, to an enlightened and spiritual ‘new me’
    Thank you for your help. What an amazing place this world is! ❤

  • Hi dear teacher Christina,I hope you’re fine and doing great in this rough time.I called you teacher coz your videos teach me like teachers are teaching online these days!I have questions to ask coz i don’t know since childhood i have been seeing myself in mirror and sometimes i find out that i am not what i am thinking and i realized that i am different and again fall in images of mind that i create without any knowledge but it was painful my childhood was a tramatic something bad happened with me!(16-2-1998)My life path number is 9 and i have got information that these people are spiritual and they are just like spiritual travellers.My life was tramatic and this thing also occur with this life path number and many other traits if you have any information according to life path number 9 please share it with me.But few years ago i have got a serious heart break when i failed in a test my parents were unhappy on this i even wished for death and before that i couldn’t understand the patterns of our system so i did some mistakes in Higher level Exams and since than i was damages,taunting was the most dangerous and i got scared by test that i couldn’t clear due to lack of Memory and sorrow in my heart!I was even tired of life that surrounded me,i was tired so i made my thought that i will stay away from others and a video poped up on my Mobile phone about change of manners by reading Quranic words(Torah,bible,Zaboor and Holy Quran)the four revealed books.It was actually help from My 12th devine Leader The Master of Time Muhammad ibne Hassan The most Blessed who will come one day with Esa(Jesus Christ)the most blassed and fill this world with justice and beauty that never seen before and My 12th Devine Leader is from the decendents of Jesus Christ the most blessed.I braised those Quranic words on water and drank that water and the next day i was different i was changing and turning perfect with the time i could even understand people and others easily,i was mindfull,study was easy for me now and i stopped doing what i used to do the techniques for studies doesn’t serve me so i started to follow my experiences.It felt like i am in different stage of my life and everything was changing and when i was sitting on my bed suddenly i lost my image and founded myslef,what i used to thinl was not me and i was this who is sitting on the bed and personality that i felt with in me was different but not my favourite and it was most disasterous,my mistakes was clear in front of me,i was looking down on myself ,then i started to work on personality coz it needed some work i could see others mistakes and others faults easily coz my knowledge was different from them and tried to help them but they were not seeing what i was seeing,i wanted to know myself that who i am and what God the great made me.I was humble and understanding!I felt like everything is learning and i can easily see my mistakes and faults,so i worked on them but suddenly when i go to a different city my feeling was triggered that i did not wanted to see but after that i couldn’t stop them and when i was sitting on a coach i thought that these feeling was turning me pervert and trying to turn my heart black i felt like my Aura was broken since then when i came back to my city i was slowly slowly turning sensative and before going to that city i used to perform my religous acts and tried to meet my 12th Devine Leader Muhammad ibne Hassan the most blessed when i came back i was in different situation i was going stray from the practices that i used to do.I said to myslef what i am doing i has to meet my 12th Devine Leader the most blessed so should stop these materialistic activities,i used to practice meditaion for studing no one told me that i have to drink water after that as you do and another thing that i didn’t mentioned is that then i have got a new information that there is a astral projection that takes us on new journey and we can reach any place with this experience!i was tired of my life and traumatic events it was before drinking water i used to practice zen meditations for that.

      Hello and thank you for sharing part of your journey and for your question! We’ll keep it in mind for a future video topic 😊

  • Thank you so much for submitting my reply sorry for some mistakes in spelling and grammer in my first comment coz i can barely write and remember word due to these conditions.I’m waiting for Teacher Christina’s reply thanks again🌸🌺🌸🌺🌸💕°♡°•○♡•°❤🧡💛💚💙💗💜

  • I”m just getting out I believe it’s over but not sure but I just had a spiritual emergency for the past two months where for me my unconscious mind definitely vomited out my whole life and especially helped me heal from old religious beliefs because before I was spiritual I was a christian so I was literally like tortured and emotionally abused the shit out of by Jesus and the Christian God and had the God syndrome where I thought I was Christ or the Second Coming of Christ and I had just been through severe emotional abuse by a narcissist and ended that relationship of 5years. But in the spiritual emergency Jesus told me about another woman and I had all this experiences with her and fell for her and I was suppose to get Life Coaching from her but during this emergency I heard so many terrifying voices that I started emailing her like bombarding her and obviously sounded crazy and she cancelled the coaching but now I just feel kind of foolish and wonder why did that happen? I still want to grieve my ex too because I’m sad over the loss and the loss of our future together I also lost my psychiatrist who I believe was toxic and emotionally abusive and gaslighted me for 5years and I gave up my friends who I think are toxic or don’t reciprocate or just can’t listen and be there for m e so Iost a lot in three months. and I couldn’t take care of my dog or shower some times or eat or sleep for weeks. my parents wanted me to be hospitalized especially my dad and go on medication and I had to really fight him and try to explain I don’t need a hospital because I’m not danger to myself or anyone else. But I definitely explain this spiritual emergency to my parents they have no clue and I live with my mom and she really was worried about me. I”m seeing a therapist who told me what this was and I remember you did a video on this so I just watched. Your channel is a gift and your awesome! I love watching your videos I learn so much. Thank you thank you thank you!

    • Amanda – Team Christina January 29, 2021 at 6:15 pm

      Hi Lauren! Thank you for sharing your experience! We love to hear our videos have helped you along your journey ❤

  • Yep! A spiritual emergency is what it is! Thank you so very much for sharing your knowledge & experience, it is greatly appreciated. ❤

    My first spiritual emergency happened in 2013, and was met with a mass amount of western medicine & physicians galore. I married a doctor’s son, so I was sent to all the specialists you can imagine and was deemed a “rare special case with no real answers.” I lived for many years being told to simply accept my strange & debilitating symptoms, treating them with copious amounts of pharmaceuticals.
    My second spiritual emergency took place in 2020 after a few years of rediscovering my spiritual ascension path. It hit fast and hard. I was more at ease with it this time around because it felt familiar to me & I think I would have been able to navigate through on my own, however the fear and anxiety of my husband and family members drove me to a place of fear. This fear caused me to spiral into delusions & hallucinations. I was admitted in a psych ward, where I stayed for 3days.
    After my stay in the hospital, I made drastic changes in my life because I knew what had happened and I felt a deep knowing that I could no longer continue as I was or o would literally die. Therefore I cocooned myself away from the world, including family & friends. I spent one year doing deep healing work on myself and spent my days deeply connected with nature.
    I have recently begun my third spiritual emergency and it has come on with a vengeance! It has been a continual revealing of truths that are beyond me, paired with an immense amount of physical body work. I truly feel that my body is healing from the inside and rapidly releasing the years of accumulated toxins from pharmaceutical drugs, extreme trauma past & present, and toxic stress. At times I simply lay and allow my fingers to find areas on my body that need released…it is as though my hands innately know what to do, I just simply have to allow it. The pressure from this can be unbearable at times and makes my mind start to slip into a pattern of western thinking telling me I may be doing damage some how, but then I remember that by following this voice and these feelings have brought me nothing but good and love..a complete and unconditional love for myself & everything around me.
    My question now is….where do I go from here? How do I keep my ego in check through this process? And how can I guard myself from the Armageddon type fear that I experience at times when I allow what I feel is my pentecostal childhood upbringing creeping in?

    Thank you once again for both your sharing and guidance, I look forward to hearing from you and your team in the future.
    Sincerely, Julia
