  • Thank you so much Christina and team 💞

  • Hey Christina, I truly enjoy your videos. My spiritual awakening started last year, Nov/ Dec, and whether you believe it or not, I am already in phase 5 (I saw your video about the stages). I have been reading about psychology for many years, I am INTP, Ennegram Sage (5), my values are pretty balanced, so therefore I might have been doing progress so quickly. I am also neurodiverse, very likely Aspie. Yesterday I have been practicing two of your meditations (my first real meditations) and it has been a mindbending experience. Before that I was meditating in my own way by sinking deep into music, working on past traumata starting from Nov/ Dec back to childhood, reflecting backwards and finding all interrelated connections which conditioned me, especially with regards to fears (unconscious) and behavioural patterns. So I was aware about Carl Jung and also anima/ animus, collective unconscious etc. I find his explanations more coherent than Sigmund Freud’s. In the past I was an INTP scientist type, but I suddenly understood that binary thinking can neither explain myself nor the world we are living in fully. I am very grateful for all the knowledge you are sharing. I believe that collaboration is the key for a better future on our planet 🙏🏻 PS: I do not think that it is only about balancing masculine and feminine ☯️, but rather a trinity: inner child. I assume the inner child is equally important, not only with regards to healing, but also the see the world through the eyes of a child 😍

  • Thank you Christina! I have been doing shadow work for some years and after watching your video I see where I have made great strides, which was very encouraging to me. AND your video also illuminated some things in my life that currently need addressing. I love the questions you gave us to ask ourselves. And the second most helpful thing to me – the shamanic journeying. Never heard of this before so I’ll check it out. Thank you again – I feel connected and encouraged on this journey by you and your videos. P.S. I live in a small rural community in Oklahoma. Sending you and your readers love and light from Oklahoma!

  • Congruence with this teaching. Must be taught to all.

  • Love your enlightenment 🌻🌺

  • Thank you Cristina! I asked the universe “what are my gifts” today and they brought me here … thank you for the direction.
    Love and gratitude,

  • Thank you, Christina!! You’re beautiful. I’m grateful that I found you. I lost my 20 years old daughter 2.5 years ago. She was brutally murdered by her ex boyfriend and I found her… so my life has been turned upside down and I’ve been going through a grieving process. Very painful and confusing process. Grief and pain shook me to the core and have spiritually awoken me. I became very spiritual. Losing a child is the most painful experience of a human being and I’ve done so much work toward my healing. I’m still in a process and YOU and your work help me a lot!!! I acknowledge all my fears and shadows, but it’s been very challenging to work with the trigger such as life by itself. Every aspect of my life was such a big trigger that my daughter was not part of it anymore. It seemed it was impossible to survive. But I did. And YOU, Christina, plaid a big role in my survival. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!! Love ❤️ Elly , Alina’s mom.

  • Hi Christina, thank you so much for those beautiful words of helpful wisdom. I have often asked what is wrong with me? As I like to think of myself as a likable person, but I find that I often try too hard. I am finally discovering and with your help, that sometimes the trying is another way of hiding my fearful and uncertain shadow self. The best tip I received was to practice embracing that part of me and just accept and love that powerless little girl who was low on the totem pole as the ninth child of 12. Nature was always my refuge … and still is I know there is definitely a creative power that has always been there for me. 🌿

  • Question: what would be the difference between the shadow and the unseen part of the inner child?

    Thank you for your energy, clarity and focus , warming my soul. Love Willem
