KRISTINA'S WEEKLY EMAIL OF THOUGHT-PROVOKING ESSAYS & VIDEOS TO KEEP YOU CONNECTED TO YOURSELF ON THIS JOURNEY CALLED LIFE
A NOTE FROM KRISTINA:
Greetings!

I'm not a Swiftie, but find it interesting I had already scheduled this PGG for today and woke up to find that overnight Taylor released her new single "You Need to Calm Down " ! If you've been feeling like you need to let off some steam, make sure you are doing it in a healthy way and not subjecting or making anyone the recipient of your own inner detox. Belting and/or dancing to songs that express whatever you're feeling - anger, frustration, grief, old emotional gunk - is a great way, and no one gets hurt or has any regret! Another technique I naturally started doing years ago simply because it felt good and worked, and then later discovered it was an actual "thing" (which btw happens to me all the time because I listen to my body), is toning . The releasing of energy through vibration and sound in your body releases pent up stress and is extremely relaxing; this is a different way to use sound therapeutically than listening, which is a more receptive/passive type of vibrational healing. In these times of profound transition we need as many tools as possible to help us let go of the past an adjust to our current realities . I felt inspired to share this with you today so let me know if you try it and the results! Also, here's my PGG Video of the week where I talk about how to deal with change, and the link for the Instagram post with a good guideline to help you make change . As always, please feel free to let me know y our feedback about any and all that I'm doing :) Big hug <3 Kristina

Something's Gotta Give
Originally published March 15, 2011*

As we watch with heartbreak and compassion the devastating aftermath of the earthquake in Japan*, it’s a good time to reflect on (or react to) where that tectonic plate is in your life that needs to be released of its tension? Where do you need to prevent a tsunami or nuclear fallout from occurring, or recover from one that just did?

We all have areas of life that we tend to neglect more than others, allowing things to build up over time. Like Mother Nature’s need to release her pent-up pressure through a variety of earth – and weather-based events, our unbalanced energy has to go somewhere. And when not addressed it gets buried within us as fat or addictions, crushing debt, unhealthy relationships, dead-end jobs, physical or mental illness or a general malaise until one day the walls come a tumblin’ down – because if you don’t take care of it, the Universe eventually will.

As the saying goes, we often need to have a breakdown before we can have a breakthrough; it’s just life showing us where change is required. What emotions have been repressed that need to be released with a good cry or a sweaty workout? Is your mind about to crack (hopefully not like Charlie Sheen’s did, which on the surface appears entertaining but is no joking matter)? Is a relationship, career, job search or financial situation beyond repair or in need of a big ole tune-up? Is your body giving you a hard time?

Change is one thing that is certain in life, and it is most definitely in the air at the moment . Embracing it and going with the flow makes dealing with change easier and less stressful, so heed the wisdom from a certain 70’s hit TV series, when Peter was going through puberty and the Brady kids sang, very groovily I might add, When it’s time to change, then it’s time to change/ Don’t fight the tide, come along for the ride .” It means that “…you’ve got to re-arrange who you are into what you’re gonna be . ” (Try getting that song out of your head now…  Sha na na na na ) .

Change is always good if we respond to it in the right way- by accepting our state of affairs and our responsibility in its creation, and by facing the fears of what actions are necessary to confront it , all the while knowing that we will be better, stronger, and wiser for having done so. And, we need to deal with the reality of the situation as it is, not as we would like it to be.

Not sure where the seismic activity or cresting river is in your life? Like Luke Skywalker or Jamiroquai , you can always Use the Force , or just give me a buzz and I’ll provide some rescue, relief and/or recovery to help you avoid a full-on meltdown and instead enjoy the ride!
