How are you doing? If you're feeling ill or have been impacted by someone who is, I am sending you all the best wishes, strength and positive healing vibes to get through. If you are an essential worker, I can't say it enough: THANK YOU. I hope you are taking as good care of yourself as you can and getting the support you need. And of course there are so many scenarios where you could be adversely affected by this life-changing historical moment, and I am thinking of you, too.

No matter who you are or what your situation, as we head into about a month now on lockdown, your patience and endurance might be wearing thin, which is certainly understandable - don't fool yourself or pretend otherwise! It's better to acknowledge it, have a little meltdown and move on , like I talk about in this video,

In another video, I talk about how finding a place of acceptance can take the pressure off, how nature detoxes stress , how to focus on what you're grateful for and how to do your part in this together. There are a few other messages you might want to check out on my Instagram/IGTV and also YouTube channel, so if you need a little face to face support, please be sure to follow or subscribe so you know when they're posted (fyi this is the dedicated YouTube playlist ). Let me know what you think, and/or what you'd like to see me talk about - I'm here to help!

Lastly, Happy Passover and Easter to those who celebrate, but we can all use this time to do some reflection even if you don't, which is why I chose this week's PGG below, and in this PGG Video of the week I talk about how to use these special themes. For this week's Instagram post I remind you how to surrender to this moment , and here's a bonus one to remind you to do some om's.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any comments about anything I'm doing.
Big hug <3 Kristina

The Passion of Passover
Originally published March 30, 2010
New Testament or Old, Facebook fan of Moses or Jesus, you don’t have to be a religious person to extract some nuggets of truth from any of them.

As someone who founded an organization with the tagline Recognizing Our Unity; Celebrating Our Diversity,” I’m always trying to see the things we share in common that are in places we often think are so different , especially if you look at it through the right lens with the right attitude.

This time of year we are reminded of some good ‘ole fashioned foundations of personal growth — trust (in oneself, others and in something bigger than oneself), faith, perseverance, forgiveness, liberation, rebirth. Without their official branding, the Ten Commandments and Golden Rule can offer you some guidelines for a happy and fulfilling life, if you just think of them as good advice from a friend or coach. Or even a TV commercial.

Be open to wisdom and inspiration no matter what form they take , and like wearing those 3-D glasses at the movie theater, learn to view things from many perspectives.

This is one of my personal specialties; I can look at the same thing that you do and see something completely different, turn it upside down, or see how it might be more or less significant than you think it is. I can connect all the dots between things that might seem totally unrelated and help you understand whatever epic journey you’re on.

Not sure how to get started? Give me buzz and I’ll put the Spring back your step, help you cross your Red Sea, own or reclaim your personal passions, and feel refreshed and ready to take on the world in a wholy-er way!
