I was in a healing ceremony with a medicine man in Ibiza. We started with a sacred ritual, but I was holding my breath. I felt constricted.
What happened next I did not see coming… a cleansing outpour of tears. I never cried. I had to be strong. At least that’s what he told me.
When I was 4 I was sexually abused by my Uncle. My Mum was in hospital a lot as she had multiple sclerosis. My Dad, well, he had to provide for our family so he was always at work. Over time my Uncle forced me to be compliant with other men too, and if I didn’t, he’d tell.
My parents had enough suffering. I didn’t want to add to their pain. So, I remained silent, and the abuse continued for many years.
Those tears that streamed down my face in that ceremony – that was the first time in my life I realized the truth of what happened. The medicine man put his hands on my shoulders, and said, “The way forward is always to bend, beloved. We bend so we never break.”
Those soft tears turned into a gushing river. But I felt light. It was like the shackles of armour I’d been wearing for 40 years broke open and all my physical and emotional pain released. I connected the dots. Many hospitalizations as a kid for “stomach pains.” Intimacy pain.
I realized I was never broken. I had to learn to meet myself with love. Rebuild. This wasn’t about being a fortress. This had to be about reconnecting with my truth so I could heal from a lifetime of trauma. In doing so I knew that my life’s work was to help others do the same.
I believe we’re all born whole
We may get lost along the way, as the world tries to round out our edges, but our essence is always there, waiting to be seen.
This is a place for those ready to be seen
I’d like to play a small role in cracking you open to the magnificent powers of your heart so you can rediscover the breath of love within.
I hear you. Loud and so very clear. I’ve been where you are now.
Hey, I’m Christina
Feel free to continue reading the yadda, yadda bio-stuff below. But all you really need to know is that I’m a mother of 4 precious little souls, a wife, and a woman who is so grateful to support and serve my clients.
I’m a shamanic facilitator and intuitive. I’m a born and raised Swiss girl and I’m dedicated to helping you become the person you want to be. I’m also multi-passionate. I’ve spent my entire life studying in the fields of law, economics, social sciences, language at Oxford University and recently in energy medicine, healing sciences and akashic records.
I love helping people. It’s in my blood and it brings me more alive than anything. I’ve lived and travelled in 40+ countries caring for an abused child in South Africa, leading youth camps and guiding founders through the highs and lows of start-up life. I was also a professional dance teacher helping hundreds of teenagers connect to their body.
