... release that which no longer serves you!

Kristi's Blog

Reverend Kristi BorstMuch of what seems so real in this physical dimension is not the entire Truth of who we are and/or what we can do. Over the last decade, I have allowed myself to both explore and expand beyond the physical, mental and emotional boundaries I thought were rigidly in place in this "reality". What I found was an aspect of Self that I had forgotten was there. I offer these wonderings and wanderings as an invitation to see beyond "what meets the eye", MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and "why can't I?" in your life!

Read, ponder, explore the depths of yourself. Although our eyes focus outward, we are primarily here to see and change ourselves. If you want to go deeper in your healing and release more quickly, let's work together. These writings are not short ... but the world is full of insightful one-liners which haven't managed to fully communicate to and shift heart and soul. I remain ever hopeful ... Much love, Kristi

Dive In To LIFE! Live As An Expression of Growth, Expansion, JOY!

DivINe to Life ~ Make a Splash. Healing Resonance llc with Kristi Borst logo. White and tan spotted dog leaps into water with glee.

As I typed "Dive in to Life" onto this doggie image I selected to illustrate this message, I couldn't actually see what I was typing because the font was set to 4 pixels. When I enlarged it, I saw I had typed "Divine to Life" my alignment with the message amplified! How wonderful that "dive in" is held within the word "divine"! I would venture to exclaim ... "here we have another TRUTH (self mastery strategy) hidden in plain sight!

The energy of expansion, growth, experiencing what life has to offer us in this realm is so close ... urging us to embrace life, even calling us. The choice is ours to push that calling back into the depths (consciously or unconsciously), ponder that call, or take that leap. There's never been a better time to shed fear, guilt, remorse, blame, self-consciousness and DIVE IN to life!

I observed a beautiful illustration of this message in action, unexpectedly, delivered by "man's best friend" ... well, actually two of them. 

I spied the two dogs in the distance as Joe and I were taking our first boat cruise of the season (I offer lakefront spiritual expansion and healing retreats in this idyllic shangri-la!). The two black labs were at the end of a dock. One looked anxiously into the water; the second would look in the water, then retreat ... seeming even more anxious than the first. Eventually, the latter looked as though she was going to get off the dock. Instead, she turned back toward the water, charged for the end of the dock and jumped. 

She swam into shore, shook off, ran up the stairs and back onto the dock. Meanwhile the first lab, just watched the other, but was now even further from the edge of the dock, seemingly still unsure about taking a similar leap.

I expected the dog that had dived in to go back to the end of the dock and jump in again. She didn't. Instead she jumped into the boat tied to the dock and ran to the bow, staying there for a few seconds. I watched, now wondering why would the dog get in the boat with no humans around. Soon the answer came and it brought me so much joy.

She emerged from the boat and ran back to the end of the dock. She whipped her head 'round and "threw" a tennis ball out into the water. Then she took some steps back, pausing as if to calculate how to jump, and lunged into the water, nearly on top of the ball. Still, the other dog watched obviously wanting to join the fun, but unable to JUMP.

It's an age-old conundrum ... do we wait, assess, worry, imagine every possible bad thing that could happen ... or do we take that leap, find it's fun, and push ourselves even further, or even take the joy of the leap to an entirely more joy-filled level? Which dog do you identify with? I have learned to root out and illumine my fears, wounds, challenge because there in lies the greatest opportunities for expansion, joy, LOVE!

Take a moment to assess what's holding you back from diving into life, your Divine Life ... the life in which you are guided by the Knowing that you  truly "have nothing to fear but fear itself" (FDR, 1933)! Imagine that the angst you may feel in the pit of your stomach, your solar plexus, your personal power potential, is not fear because you may/will fail, IT's YOUR GREATNESS CALLING YOU to DivINe (dive in) to LIFE!

In THIS NOW, we have so many choices, so many freedoms, and a world of resources. One of the most powerful personal tools I have found in moving forward from our fears is to view them as SELF SABOTAGE. This does require that we OWN that we are not here by chance, we are here by CHOICE. That can be a process of our own spiritual sovereignty and soul empowerment, so give yourself Grace. But allow yourSELF to remember: we've got what it takes (from lifetimes of trials and victories) to be THE GAME CHANGERS in this auspicious time! 

Awareness = The Power of Choice = The Power to Change. See that some of our fears are seeded as burdens from our lineage ... yet I KNOW we volunteered to shut that shit down for those who came before us (and didn't have awareness, choice OR power) and those who will follow! Introspection and insights from a spiritual intuitive can help you understand the root of your "struggles" and more easily turn them into the actual OPPORTUNITY in alignment with Our Highest Good!

Dive in! Make a BIG splash! Yes, you'll get wet and some times you may even swallow a bit of water. Whatever you are looking at longingly, dive into AND PAST the fear that holds you back. Breathe into your stomach, and expand your solar plexus. Transmute the intensity of fear in the simple Knowing of your value, your power, the importance of playing and holding the vibration of joy and expansion within your BEing! Ultimately, life is about the living, the vibe to thrive ... releasing your fears, throwing your own ball into the water, and diving in after it. What fun!

Have we ever heard people say that "Life is too long"? This NOW is your unique and special moment. Understand the choices you have unconsciously been making that are holding you back from living. Again, see fear, self-consciousness, regret, self-doubt and the desire to please everyone before yourSELF as self sabotage! I am here for you if you'd like spiritual guidance, help in releasing denser emotions and ancestral programming, and clarity on what the challenges of your life are trying to provide to you.

"Do not follow where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

SEEze your immense birthright ... an unlimited potential for growth, expansion, even JOY ... hidden in plain sight, yet within your power to overcome and bring the "Purpose" you may be searching for! When YOU are hiding or holding back, you are not connecting with yourSELF!

I see YOU,

Discerning Manipulation and Responding from LOVE 😍

If a friend/relative/employer/news story trash-talks another, urging you to do the same, you are being manipulated. What you align with, you become. FB avitar of Kristi

This post got quite a bit of responses on FB. The message expanded, as often happens, into this blog.

Signs of control and manipulation may not be readily apparent to empaths, lightworkers, and souls serving Our Collective by seeing THE GOOD in others and our world. Moreover, those raised within highly dysfunctional households in which love plays out as abuse can lose touch with their own discernment and healthy boundaries. Still others have served as "peace keeper" for so long that our awareness may be clouded. All of these factors can diminish our power, discernment, joy and inner peace!

Despite having reached an age at which I am considered "a senior", I am still learning ... still recovering from a childhood in which my desires, preferences, even my needs were ignored, minimized, ridiculed and even distorted then dictated back to me. Writing and sharing in this way, helps me process, which helps others. Yet again, GOD/Source/Spirit shares "WE are lifting ONE ANOTHER!"

Awareness = The Power of Choice = The Power to Change ...
We are evolving to love, THROUGH LOVE; SELF LOVE is key!

If a friend or relative is putting down another to you, they are likely also talking about you to someone else. Similarly, if they are asking you to be on "their team/side", they likely have other teams which exclude you. This is very manipulative and far from love. When we are unaware of these dynamics, we can end up being blindsided. Remember, the only one we can change is ourSELVES, but often when we change, others in the dance also change.

A Conversation with Multi-Dimensional Healer Kristi Borst

Person sits in lotus position. The positions of the 7 major chakras are illuminated. Swirling energy background

[This interview was conducted and published by a wellness group in April, 2019. At that time I was a FOUNDING MEMBER. During my tenure, I was thrilled to be cited in their ultimate "BEST HELP" wellness practitioners list! I think I was selected to be interviewed for this feature based upon the significant amount of spiritually-focused and self-help blogs I had written for their site. I've since resigned my membership after personally experiencing lack of integrity in dealing with the organization's primary owner. Today, most of my content has been deleted from their site; but today a Facebook memory somehow guided me to this long-forgotten-to-me interview. I am grateful to share this information with you!. May it  offer insights and clarity on who I AM and what I'm offering. πŸ’—πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ€ You can read addition information on the ABOUT KRISTI and the Healing Resonance llc Frequently-Asked Questions pages of my site.]

The founder of Healing Resonance LLC with Kristi Borst.

  1. Hello Kristi, will you please tell us about yourself?

Hi, everyone. Thank you for the opportunity to share with you today. I am a natural-born quantum mind-body-spirit-emotions healer. My body, voice, energy, aura, and connection to Spirit/Source/God/Love offer a healing resonance which shifts others to their zero-point of inner peace and balance.

As I work with clients, they are able to jump forward to greater levels of joy and wellness. I tend to shy away from labels because for much of my life and like many of us, I was unknowingly living a smaller version of myself than I am here to express.

Bringing Back the SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS Life!

"The Logical Song" by Supertramp came on as I was driving home tonight. As I listened I could both relate and also answer the singer when he pleaded, "Please tell me who I AM!"

"When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful, a miracle. Oh, it was beautiful, magical." Then when we were having fun, they said the magic wasn't "real". [You may wish to also read "Are you living the life you came to express? Release your hood".]

All Life Matters ~ BEE Kind

a bumble bee flies awayAnd as they flew away, we were thrilled to have made a difference!

My husband and I saved a bumble bee the other night. We were on a slow "stroll" on the lake in our ski boat. I was happy that I love sitting in the bow on the chaise seats, observing the sky, water, flora, fauna, etc; otherwise I may not have seen the struggle. As we were passing through a "no wake zone" I noticed a strange circular pattern in the water's surface. I called attention to my captain; as he navigated close, I saw a bumble bee. They/He/She was on its back, going in circles, trying to make the 50 foot passage to shore (I presume). The circular water pattern was movement, but very slow going!

"It's a bee; he's going to drown. Can we go back and help?"

Fire the Evil Librarian; Invite in Curiosity and Presence (a Gift)

In May, I decided to trim my hair shorter than usual and went REALLY short ... sort of an accident around the ears that had to be blended out. The day after cutting it drastically short and feeling very self conscious, I was pumping gas when a woman yelled over "I love your short hair!" "Thank you for that; it's a bit shorter than I anticipated." "Yes, that can happen," she quipped. When I repeated the compliment to a friend on Zoom she chuckled and asked "was she a lesbian?"

I was somewhat speechless, but responded to the situation from the factual observation that "I don't know but she was with a man." Weeks later, that question/reaction and my lack of ability to respond has come to mind again and again. Even (or especially) when this comes from someone we know loves us ... how do we respond to something that feels like a slap, not only to us personally, but for others who are being labeled or grouped based upon a superficial "fashion/expression" choice?

Knowing this person, she clearly understands I am not this body, nor my hair style. Perhaps this is multidimensional bias or program we are here to forestall??? Awareness = The Power of Choice = The Power to Change❣️

Trust Your Soul's Evolution

Trust your soul's evolution. Real-eyes that you are not too late. When change arrives in your path embrace it. Life has been seeking balancing, trying to auto-correct the myriad ways you have sold yourself short. When you start to aim for more and better, growth can seem magical.

Here are some illusions and ancestral programs that we can disengage with to empower our expansion. Watch for an lovingly say "no thank you" to:

  • "You are not enough"
  • "You are too Much"
  • "Don't be too full of yourSELF"

Awareness = The Power of Choice = The Power to Change

  • "You are not only enough ..."
  • "You are perfect ..."
  • "Be full of youSELF; that's why you are here"

If you need help finding and reconnecting with your childlike curiosity, magic, wonder, glee, sparkle, reach out for support. You were born knowing why you are here, your gifts, and the true resonance of your soul signature. That's why this work is so important. I am here and offer readings, on-demand mp3 sessions, and one-to-one support.

Channeling of this message was recorded on 2-23-23.

Don't Pass Along Your Pain; Forgiving the Bully

Until we have peace, we will have pain. Consider any time you have lashed out at someone, or they have been mean to you. Pain was the likely catalyst, pain pushed outward (albeit unconsciously). That pain was given to another (hot potato!), and on and on! It's the opposite of "paying it forward" within our families, our companies, our communities, our world.

Pay it forward. Family tree type chart created with hearts

People who hurt others are typically in emotional or physical pain themselves. They may not be consciously TRYING to be mean or even understanding that there is a choice to behave otherwise. They do not have the tools, freedom, maturity, or perhaps the skills to even process, let alone heal their internal pain. They have no idea where their anger, depression, anxiety is rooted. It just IS. 

Understanding what we are passing along as generational or cultural pain is important. We are here to change the script! Awareness = The Power of Choice = The Power to Change!

In writing for UNMUTED VOICES, a collaborative book project in the works, I've revisited many long-forgotten memories of grade school. My personal school bully stepped forward as an illustration for this blog.

Asking For What You Want and Need is Healthy

"asking for what we want or need is our healthier alternative to being hurt / blaming 'the other' for not providing ??IT! @healing resonance llc with kristi borst"e; on sunset image

Generations, cultures, peoples who deny their children's needs do not create stronger adults.

This is not at all about blame. "Parenthood doesn't come with a manual" and some of those parenting guides of the 20th Century and before were not heart-based. I remember repeatedly hearing "spare the rod, spoil the child." Other "experts" told new parents to let the baby cry itself to sleep.

As adults, we either continue what we have learned, or we see what didn't work for us and we change! I am grateful that some of us have said, "that's not how I choose to parent. I'm going to respond to my baby when she cries and when she's hungry. I'm going to be a loving, supportive part of my child's life. My child's childhood is going to be a treasured time of innocence." 

I grew up without a voice and without choices. When my husband would take me on dates, early in our relationship (I was 18), I would feel so conflicted over my food choice(s). If I selected the shrimp entrΓ©e would it taste $2 better than a similar offering with chicken? A decade and a half later, we parented with a goal that our children knew how to assess their choices and even suggest alternatives.  E.g., "You cannot go to school in your flip flops because they don't protect your feet; but you can wear your sneakers, rain boots, dress shoes, etc. Seeing choices empowers change, growth, freedom!

I believe that we change the world through the only one we have control to change ... ourSELVES. Each one! We do not rise above our pasts when we repeat the obsolete programs and energies of dysfunction as parents of our own children.

Yet, we can bring harmony, backward and forward, when we provide a loving home/vibe for not only our children, but firstly WITHIN ourSELVES. We heal through love, but we can actually go a bit overboard when we aren't watching our energy. It's not too late; for many of us, this is a new thing. It's a GOOD THING to gain awareness of!

Taking a Stance AS and THROUGH LOVE

yin and yang held in balance by LOVE at Source. image created with two wolf heads; moon and sun

A beautiful teaching is found in the Native American Tale of the Two Wolves.

Until you see the whole picture you cannot see the whole picture. We literally cannot stand in the exact same place as another person, so we will never see from exactly the same perspective. 

Love and empathy will create positive change in our world; hate, aggression, fear just continue the cycles we are here to transform. We cannot force someone else to open their eyes to compassion and love by bombarding them with hate and condemnation. Sometimes our focus on what that other person is doing is just our own ego's way of avoiding OUR "inner work". We get so focused on "the crusade" that we forget the love that was in our hearts at its start. 

History will repeat itself until we find a different way to respond and treat one another.

Are You Living The Life You Came Here to Express? ~ Release Your Hood!

An old man with hooded cape looks in wonder at a fairie performaing a ballet pose on his palm."Dancing Fairy" by Ed Gedrose

As eternal souls, consciousness, energy having a human experience on this beautiful planet, we hold and have access to infinite Knowledge. Through visions, messages, and healing deep-dives, God/Source/Spirit/The Universe has shown me a well-spring of timeless wisdom. 

I  know that as mere, even fragile newborns, we were aware of so much and yet unable to express it except as LOVE. Perhaps a soul-level recognition of this wisdom and Truths is an aspect of the somewhat universal appeal of babies!

Yet as individuals, we rush forward! We grow bigger, eagerly aiming for adulthood. We long to grow up; happily abandoning wonder, glee, non-physical "realities" we are told are "not real". We happily conform to expectations and limitations placed upon us, agreeing to live, express, embody a smaller and smaller essence of Truth and our soul signatures. We become more and more disconnected within to Truth, Love, Higher Guidance.

And yet, we came to bring and live Truth! We can to be this ONE that only we can be! This is why much of my work and self-expansion focuses on Inner Child Healing and Reconnection.

Change is at Hand ~ BE LOVE

Change is at hand ~ Drop your club and raise your wand ... Focus on our Highest and Best COLLECTIVE Outcomes! Embrace the positive, empowered energies of commUNITY. We are co-creating this world; let's do so with LOVE. cKristiBorst

Spirit shares "Change is at hand." Often change scares us; our primal selves may wish to carry a big club, When this happens, we have stepped back from our power and into fear. That was THEN, this is NOW. We are directing the change! 

It's so important to shift your fear to empowerment! More winners is always better than one, despite what we have been groomed to beLIEve. 

"Drop your club and raise your wand ... Focus on our Highest and Best COLLECTIVE Outcomes! Embrace the positive, empowered energies of commUNITY. We are co-creating this world; let's do so with LOVE!"

Spiritual Rituals for Prosperity and Abundance

Visual Meditation Tool for Abundance and Propserity ©Kristi Borst

Do you equate money with prosperity and measure your prosperity by your financial position? You’re not alone. If money is your primary focus, you are missing several other yummy pieces of the prosperity pie!

Prosperity Pie:

Kristi's Prosperity Pie

Assessing and expanding your current definition of prosperity is an important first step in creating a more powerful spiritual practice for abundance! It’s natural for us to focus on money because so much of our physical world is valued and driven by money. Yet, money is only one aspect of prosperity.

Consider these aspects of prosperity and abundance in your life beyond the obvious housing, clothing, and food: Technology and mobility; health and happiness; freedom and choices; quality time; love and relationships; talents, service, ability to give; other (you decide).

Abundance IS – Make Note of It!

Some of these things are naturally ours in great abundance!

11-11-2021 Endings Are Amplifiyng Beginnings ... Batter Up!

As we approach 11/11/21, there are many awarenesses presenting to me. There is definitely an over-arching theme and calling for an awareness of our stance and use of the male and female energies within our being. Many times, Spirit vision/messages/analogies "speaks to me" through the Divine Feminine.

This message and sports analogy feels markedly different and yet so yummy! It was exactly what I needed, what my client needed, and, I can only imagine, what many others of us need.

As we look at all the 1's in this date, it doesn't take a master to appreciate this is about beginnings. When we compare it to this date in 2011, we may feel it's a sort of do-over of the energies that were presenting. If we add the digits of 11/11/2021 we get "9" which is also about endings.
But this is more of an amplification and also an urging for quantum leaps! 

We are nearly 10 years into the RE-emergence of the Divine Feminine energies, benched or side-lined from our civilization for so many years. With each light that awakens within humanity, male and female energies are coming more into balance and manifesting here in our physicality.

 Hey, you're up to bat!

Shifting Dimensions, Open & Closed Doorways ~ It's like Hogwarts' Sorting Hat!

Two perspectives, yin/yang, of the closed doorway
It is said that as one door closes another opens. As shown in this visual doorway message from about four years ago (left side), I've certainly encouraged myself and others to look at the CLOSED DOOR, as an invitation to BE and DO more. Spirit/Higher Guidance and experiences of late are showing me that in duality, there is always a yin-yang balance with every thing. So, we must see and assess both sides of the situation; lest we get stuck in limbo!

This is not to say we should focus on extremes. We as a civilization have been doing that for eons, and it hasn't created Humanity's sweet spot. When we focus on only black/white, good/bad, right/wrong, we miss the rainbow that lies at the heart of that spectrum.

I'm sharing this OTHER PERSPECTIVE of the CLOSED DOOR, with the hope that it will illuminate more possibilities FOR and WITHIN YOU. On the left, there is actually an invitation to step up and forward. Yet in some cases, particularly in our relationships, we never had nor will have the right key to be able to enter and find the peace or love we seek. Sometimes the "other person" is barring our way because our needs and wants do not align!

The image above is "Celebrating Love", from my energy-in-form healing artwork series. Like the thrill of a fireworks display, may it ignite excitement in your soul! The summer is a wonderful time to celebrate our freedoms ... here in New England it marks a joyous time when we can shed so many layers of clothing!

As we gather with friends and family to celebrate our Country's independence, the warmer weather, family and friends, let's more fully claim our independence on a deeper, personal level.

Allow yourself to move evermore toward inner freedom.

All Life Seeks the Light ~ Chaos Emerging to NEW Life

When the Earth rumbles, most people panic

Many call these “crazy times”, and things are surely changing. But when we look at nature and other creatures on our planet, there is peace. They “know” that all is well. Things ARE changing. A tiny virus has shown us that we are a world without borders and what happens on the other side of the world DOES matter. We are connected. We all matter!

Things that have been hidden from view (and/or that we have consciously and unconsciously avoided seeing) are coming to our attention. We must look, not with scorn or finger-pointing, but with compassion for ourselves and "the other".

Sometimes, on the surface, things look bad, dire even. This IS and has always been true. Moreover, we will see what we look for and expect. The more narrow our expectations, the less we see what’s in opposition to those expectations, and that further reinforces our beLIEf in what we will see!

10 Mindset Tips for Happiness

Our mindset is much more important than we have been taught. What we experience, our "reality," is interwoven with our expectations, perceptions, choices, thoughts, emotions, beliefs, etc.

Happiness is always a choice within reach. As we see(ze) small choices, we can expand and grow to become more powerful and self-masterful. Here are some prompts to help you shift your experience in this NOW, the moment you have control over! Utilize these mindsets to shift aspects of your life that lead to unhappiness, allowing you to springboard forward.

Awareness = The Power of Choice = The Power to Change
How can I become more aware of myself and my innate power?

Illuminating the Darkness

Perhaps we are only afraid of the dark because we have forgotten or become somewhat separated from OUR LIGHT!?!

Imagine yourself, walking through a forest during the day. You see and hear birds and little creatures living their lives ... seeking food, sunlight, shelter. Perhaps you feel a kinship or peace within nature and you feel so alive "in nature".

As the sun begins to set, beautiful shafts of light make their way toward you. You notice that golden hue and accept the sun's "goodnight" kiss.

The Amazing Benefits of Healing Childhood Pain and Trauma

... and Releasing Self-Limiting BeLIEfs!

Woman and girl crouch by tree. Graphic representation of current adult self working with inner child self through Kristi Borsts Perspective RebootR spiritual healing process.

Do you …

  • have a conscious knowledge and bad memories of childhood trauma, neglect, abuse, shaming, or abandonment?
  • feel like SOMETHING's MISSING in your life, but “on paper” you’ve got it all?
  • feel like you SHOULD be happier? You’d like to be happy but cannot easily laugh, feel awe/joy/ inner peace?
  • feel stalled or stuck in some way? You cannot pinpoint what your next move should be or have TROUBLE MAKING DECISIONS?
  • find yourself SELF-SABOTAGING RELATIONSHIPS? You shut down when things get “too real”?
  • feel really angry much of the time? Feel like you cannot love yourself?
  • observe that your EMOTIONS ARE sometimes really EXTREME? Someone says or does something most people would consider minor, yet you respond with or feel extreme rage, sadness, frustration, rejection, loneliness, (fill in an emotion of upset)?
  • “suddenly” find yourself sick or have developed a MAJOR DISEASE, despite eating well and taking care of yourself? Perhaps you even developed an illness in your teens or earlier?

Being traumatized in your childhood or not being nurtured in a way you needed/craved may be at the core of each of these circumstances and conditions. Understanding the role of the inner-child can help us to both identify with and step-up to a greater version of self.

MultiDimensional Healing ~ Mind, Body, Spirit, Emotions

Russian Nesting Dolls illustrate our multidimensional nature. Perspective Reboot® with Kristi Borst

The Myriad Aspects of YOU

In my spiritual counseling and healing ministry, I see us energetically, emotionally, and even to an extent physically, like these Russian (Matryoshka) Nesting Dolls. In this sense, we are complex, multi-dimensional and multidimensional. Even our experiencing of life is not only in the present moment. Sometimes we are living through the eyes of past woundings and/or future tense fears or beLIEf in lack.

7 Tips for Building a Strong Marriage

7 tips for building a strong marriage, kristi borst phd, author and husband at grand canyon

While it’s an accomplishment to achieve a long marriage, there are more measures of success than years alone. My husband, Joe, and I have been married for 40 years, 39 of those years blissfully. Statistics show that many marriages end in the early years, and we most certainly could have been among those as I nearly self-sabotaged this relationship in our fifth year of marriage (more on that later).

Perhaps you’ve heard that 50% of all marriages end in divorce? This statistic was true in 1980 (the year we married) but, since that time, the divorce rate has been on the decline. You’ll find many updated statistics online (interestingly they are largely served up by divorce attorneys). Philip N. Cohen, a sociologist at the University of Maryland College Park, notes that from 2008 to 2018 divorce rates among women fell by 18%. (1)

Our focus and obsession with divorce can ultimately be a large part of the problem. It was for me. READ MORE

Chaos Creates Expansion and Room for Reorganization and Balance


crystal grid, seemingly in disarray
There is expansion, symmetry, balance, love, light even amid what some might call "chaos" or "a crisis". There is no need to "rush in to fix things"! Our first reaction will likely not come from a place of love; we may respond with fear and finger pointing.

But we are each/all co-creating what we see, what we experience, what we feel! We cannot change that creation until we see all of its sides in 3D. We have to understand that what benefits only a few, likely hurts many. If, individually, we want a world that is better for us, we have to create a world that is better for all.

Love thy neighbor as you love thyself because when we hurt another, we ultimately hurt ourselves, We may not see that in this moment, but it will follow us through all time/space ... in Time all Truths will be Known.

Finding Peace Through the Ebb and Flow of Life

I sat down in dawn’s early light to make notes for the attached video from my FB Live Wellness Moment. As the sun came through the window, this beautiful rainbow illuminated my note pad. I took it as a sign of LOVE, assurance, trust, gratitude … peace.

Life/nature shares signs of positivity. How often do we miss these light-filled signs?

All Is Well

For much of my adult life, I missed life’s signs that All Is Well. I based my happiness upon what the media was telling me, what I perceived to be the rejection/acceptance of me by others, how busy I was … heck, even based upon whether the sun was shining or it was raining.

Eventually, I started to see the balance of life. I opened my awareness to rain’s gifts upon all life in our world. Now, when I initially perceive a negative situation, my Higher Knowing moves me to seek out and find the gift. This is a huge win-win strategy for finding peace and understanding that in each moment All Is Well!

GO! Fly Free! Life IS Going According To Plan ...

Imagine one thing ... just one moment you've felt REJECTION or LOSS ~ Open your seeing of that moment as your life path's auto correct, meant not to root you, but to shift you ... GO! Fly free! Love, Kristi
There are many times in our lives when situations seem to change beyond our control or even beyond our worst imagining. We may experience this as (1) the loss of a friend, family member, lover, (2) being passed over for a promotion, living arrangement, deeper relationship, (3) having a physical accident and injury, or (4) getting very ill mentally or physically.

Human nature and prevailing Western culture whines "why did this happened TO ME?" Yet our expanded awareness shows us that "this may actually be happening FOR ME!" How can loss and rejection of those we love, jobs that support us, living arrangements that seem to be working be happening FOR YOU, you may ask?

Perhaps rather than being comfortable and safe, or perhaps because of that, these placid life circumstances may not actually be serving your strengths, your higher quest for soul growth, your ability to touch others' lives, your evolution toward unconditional love!

Life Evolving Beyond Fear ~ Return to Center

I am offering 1/2 hr phone sessions for Emotional Calming/Light/Love                            207-216-0473

"Life Evolving Beyond Fear" ©2020 KristiBorst.com
"Life Evolving Beyond Fear" illustrates our forward-upward
movement, in unity. Rather than being consumed by fear,
we are being offered choices and the power to BE
light, love, trust, compassion, hope
in spite of and above fear!
Hello friends,

I sat down to create an image on 3/10 and "Life Evolving Beyond Fear" emerged. Use it to help identify and release fear and obsolete programming as we ascend toward a new, more global, and empowered consciousness. Other tools and suggestions follow.
As the snake sheds its skin, we can shed what is holding us back
from embodying love, light, compassion, hope, faith, trust!
It is prudent to follow safe hygiene guidelines, but it's best to do so without fear. Fear is an anti-building block within own auto-immune systems, within our relationships and within our world! Rather than lament cancellation of plans, events, even work, take this time for self-reflection, healing, and evolution beyond fear.
Reflect on where you are/have been living, emotionally and vibrationally.

Life's Transitions, Empowering YOU!

Back of man's head with many thoughts swirling "When your expecations keep pecking at your happiness, come back to present. Then, redirect your vantage point from your head to your heart.
Often inner strife is due to reality being far removed from what we wanted to happen or thought would happen ... the friendship you thought would be everlasting, a league of friends you vibe with, the optimal job of your dreams, a living arrangement that seemed like "the perfect fit". Why do we experience endings?

If you're like me, when you have a "good thing" you want it to last. This may rarely happen in the "real world". These transitions make sense when we understand that we EACH are on a journey of growth and expansion. Our evolution may be incompatible with our quest for stability and/or longevity of engagement with a person, place or situation.

When Grief Arrives during the Holidays

Feel love enfold you, encouraging you to LIVE! There is perhaps no better way to honor the love we've shared than to move forward, claiming our best possible life!

For some people, “losing a loved one” can put the brakes on living life and cloud the holidays with sadness. But what if that person has stepped aside FOR us to help us shift to another timeline, to find our inner strength, to grow?!? What if our being stuck is also holding THEM back? What if they are not LOST?

Death of the physical body is only “the end” if WE close that door to our continued connection.

The PRESENCE

chakra colors and swirling colors combine in this energy-in-form healing art creation ©Kristi Borst
"All is Well, All is Forgiven" ©2013 Kristi Borst

You have a Presence,
It's a power and connectedness
... YOUR True Self!

It's hard to find that Presence
in past-tense wrongs,
future fears, darkness.

Yet the Presence is so close
not in the heavens, but within ...
You help it exist.

In focusing on what feels not enough
You're looking through 'distorted
glass' of your own creation.

You remain stuck because
you've defined yourself
within an illusion.

Your seeing the illusion
is all it takes
for it to crumble.

You are THAT powerful.
Now that you have eyes
to see you can change!

As each sees their mis-creation,
steps forward in the Presence,
all vibration/matter/life is lifted.

You can/do/will change the world!

                      ~~~~~

Namaste ... I SEE you,
Kristi

These 7 MAJOR CHAKRAS Offer Insights for Your Improved Health and Happiness PLUS Gateways to Natural Healing

Chakra Healing Love denotes Kristi's love-based interpretation of healing energy for each of the seven major chakras.
This is one of my energy-in-form healing artwork pieces. It is available as a 12"x36" or 36"x12" print to use for self-balancing your chakras. You can view my artwork online HERE!
Many times the past can bring clarity to what's happening now. Our decisions, even those made unconsciously, affect our path, our outlook, and even our physical wellness. This is especially true if we are carrying "junk in the trunk" or otherwise lugging an emotional backpack behind us!

If you are struggling with physical illness, particularly one which doctors and tests cannot explain, I invite you to look beyond the symptoms, look beyond our body because you are so much more than that! You are a composite of genetics, nature, nurture, mind, emotions, spirit, and ENERGY!

We have many CHAKRAS in our bodies; this energetic and spiritual system is part of the subtle, non-visible dimensions that run our bodies. The chakras are energy centers (in some ways similar to the meridians used in acupuncture). I personally "see" the chakras as a type of snap system ... how we, as spiritual beings/thought/consciousness, connect in with our physical bodies.

When these juncture points become blocked, the flow of life force energy within the body is hindered. Chakra clearing and balancing is an important part of maintaining and/or improving your health. A healing session focused on the chakras can provide emotional healing and release blocks within the body's natural healing mechanisms. If you're tired of feeling sick or "stuck" in some way, then opening your chakras may be just the revitalization you need.

How to Set Realistic Expectations

Desert in bloom. How to set realistic expectations, uplifting and empowering message by Kristi Borst PhD

Are Realistic Expectations Even Possible?

Yes, but to some extent, expectations may turn us away from joy and connection! The more we release expectation within ourselves, our relationships, and “what comes next,” the more we feel balance and calm within.

We “suddenly” see choices to be happy that didn’t seem to be present before because WE weren’t present! The more we find inner peace, the more peace we create within our world!

Autoimmune Disease ~ A Holistic Approach to Health

When I started my holistic energy healing practice in 2013, I was amazed by the almost literal connection between our perspectives on life and the physical ailments in our bodies.

Today, it makes perfect sense!

Louise Hay was a forerunner in identifying and documenting these parallels. Her book “How to Heal Your Body” is on my suggested client resources list.

As Above, So Below:

Here on Earth and perhaps throughout our universe, energy always precedes physical creation! Someone gets an idea for a new product or structure, they create a plan, they find resources for manufacture or fabrication, and a product or structure is born.

Similarly, within our bodies, there is an interplay of mind-spirit-emotions that impacts the physical body. Illness is not “all in our heads,” but our thoughts and emotions DO affect our bodies.

I have witnessed how our beliefs, attitudes, and even the way we talk to ourselves can affect and hinder the body’s innate healing intelligence. Fortunately, healing is nearly always possible!

Ways to Nurture Our Mother Earth

April 22, 2019, Is Our Tenth Annual "International Mother Earth Day"!

illustration of earth Gaia with her chakras, crystaline gridwork, flower of life, light language
On my Free Videos page, I offer a guided meditation for Connecting with Gaia, Our Mother Earth which might serve as a deepening to this message.

See and Celebrate Our Mother Earth

In 2009, the United Nations created "International Mother Earth Day". I love this more expansive naming of April 22 beyond "Earth Day",
"The Earth and its ecosystems are our home … It is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth." The term Mother Earth is used because it "reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit".1

"International Mother Earth Day" It Is!

Many cultures around the globe celebrate the Earth as sustainer of all life here. Those who are sensitive to the energy and messages of/from the Earth share that she is craving our awareness and support! We can easily assist in big and small ways.

Are You Tethered to A Safety Net? Break Free and Soar

cartoon with woman releasing chain to float with a balloon into the clouds

Are you connecting, to varying degrees, with a greater purpose for your life?

Or perhaps you’re not quite at that point but know your current job is “just a job.” You know there’s something more out there for you, but you haven’t fully connected. Like me, have you been wearing multiple hats cultivating your dream while working a “day job?”

Most of us need a day job. It provides for our here and now; it helps fuel where we want to go. When we focus on these benefits, the day job seems to provide security and balance; but there are downsides.

Four Ways to Find and Connect with Forgiveness

Two hands in red gloves forming a heart-shape with "Forgiveness" in the heart.

Where Does Forgiveness Come From?

Forgiveness reigns within the heart. It's not something we have to create, it's already there. We all have hearts, so forgiveness should be easy. Why is it so hard for many of us to forgive?

As children, we knew how to forgive and live from our heart space. Perhaps at some point it became too painful? Or, maybe once we got into a “mainstream school system” we learned to focus on the mind more than the heart?

I believe we experience more pain in this head-space, living separated from our heart-based selves. We tend to push pain out, away from ourselves. This is how we hurt one another. It is a cycle that can create a disparity between truth and Truth.

Healing through Integrative Energy Medicine: Balancing Mind Body Spirit Emotions

image from the wellness universe with energy healing patient

We Have Incredible Self-Healing Bodies:

For many, the system seems to have gone awry. Many people are healthy yet don’t feel well. Others “have everything” but feel empty, sad, lost. Cutting out body parts or ingesting chemicals with myriad side effects has become the norm in our medical system. While we have gained relief from infectious disease, in many cases, we have lost the intimacy of healthcare which sees and addresses the whole person in an integrative approach.

What’s Your Dis-Ease Telling You?

Multidimensional or integrative healing (mind-body-spirit emotions), is largely experiential and unique for each person. In 1976, Louise Hay thoroughly documented associations between dis-ease and ailments of specific body parts. “Heal Your Body … The Mental Causes for Physical Illness and the Metaphysical Way to Overcome Them” was an invaluable tool for me as a new practitioner.

Release that which no longer serves you through individual and group healing sessions. As an integrative quantum healer, I know that fear, anger, hatred, regret, grief, and victimhood create an environment which restricts the human body\’s natural abilities to self-regulate and self-heal. Essentially, this internal dis-ease can eventually translate to physical disease. The great “news” is that when the root of dis-ease is removed when the client is able to release emotional stories that are based in illusion when love replaces its “denser counterparts,” the body seeks and more easily attains balance, perfection, health, wellness, and joy.

What’s Got You Stuck?

One of my first client healing sessions in 2013 was with a friend who had shoulder pain and immobility. He’d been told that nothing could be done for him short of surgery. He knew of my services and figured he had “nothing to lose.” When I touched his shoulder, I became aware of his angry and hostile feelings toward his father. It was almost literally stuffed full of unprocessed rage and anger.

His session focused on seeing these feelings from his current adult view and not that of the child who was powerless. He experienced an amazing release of toxic emotions and “energy blocks.” His body responded immediately. He left the session more flexible and pain-free. More than five years later, he has no issues with his shoulder.

In the Presence of Love

Love Is by Kristi Borst
caption from image ~ The more you stay in the space of love, the more you find yourself in happiness. Society/life/humanness lures us into a place that questions love's existence, that questioning pulls us away from love and love's embrace. We question, and that creates a resistance which reinforces the idea of separation from what we eternally are when we give up the resistance. L O V E is. See & heal your resistance ... and you've found an exit route from illusion! 

For many of us, peace is a dream. There are so many things that bother us, whether it's news of world happenings, things happening in our town, strife at work or home, and/or inner turmoil. We cannot change things external to us, until we have changed within. Otherwise we actually increase our lack of peace and resistance ... Awareness = The Power of Choice = The Power to Change!

I invite you to accept, for ever increasing moments each time you think of it, that the core of your essence is Love. From this understanding, we find the root back to love is within. It is not outside of you!

Raising the Bar As We Shift

Have you heard about "The Shift"? I've been reading about the current lunar phases and hearing others say how intense the energies are. (We are affected by energies within our bodies, energies from our Earth, energies from our Moon, energies from the Sun, energies from our Galaxy, energies from beyond our Universe ... and so on.)

When I read about a solar flare, moon phase, etc.,

A Shift in Consciousness

Status quo does not yield change; conflict brings change. Many of those currently in the political arena (who society may deem as inappropriate) may actually be serving humanity and a massive consciousness Shift at this time. They are giving a voice and face to darkness, anger, judgment, disparity, self-servitude ... raising it from an unspoken undercurrent to a place in which it can be assessed by our public and personal consciousness.

When we are triggered, it's likely that heavy emotion is seeded in a long-ago story, written in illusion, not Truth. Something this "other" has said or done has poked us like a pin in a spot where we are holding that same vibration. If things make you angry, sad, etc., ask yourself "why?" "Where is this coming from?" "How do I walk through the world in this way?" "Is it a present behavior/belief?" "Is it an old behavior/belief I've not forgiven within myself?" See how you walk through the world similarly to this person and change.

Love Never Dies!

My client Elizabeth had to make the tough decision to let go of her sick 14-year-old border collie Sadie on Saturday night. We worked together in person this morning, clearing heavy emotions and finding guidance on what comes next.

Messages came through that may be of help for others in dealing with "loss" of not only furry but also human loves ...

Eagle Messages ~ Don't be Deterred, Observe, Seize Your Opportunities

crows chase male eagle, inset eagle snags a fish ©getty images
Yesterday I saw a small bird chasing a juvenile eagle. They passed directly overhead ... bird squawking and flapping violently as the eagle flew faster with little effort. This morning I saw a crow chasing an adult eagle. The eagle flew to and perched in a nearby pine tree, the crow landing somewhat higher on the same tree. The crow left after a few minutes. The eagle stayed, and stayed, and stayed. I wanted to watch him fly; I waited a long time. Eventually, he took off, flying approximately 200 feet to catch a fish in the water in front of me.

Messages began to come in for me/you/Us. As I pondered the small birds chasing the larger birds, I was reminded of life's distractions and how sometimes we can be steered off course without even realizing where we went astray. Small things, over which we ultimately have total control, can derail us. Why? Perhaps because we underestimate ourSelves. We believe they CAN DERAIL US so they do!

How Does Energy Healing Help Physical Pain and Disease?

I was recently asked by a healing-focused web group to answer these questions about my integrative (mind-body-spirit-emotions) esoteric healing abilities. How can Healing Resonance with Kristi Borst positively affect/heal physical ailments and mental turmoil presenting in another person, situated halfway around the globe? I hope the answers will help satisfy the mind's curiosity. Ultimately your mind-body-spirit seeks balance. I am graced with the ability to connect in, help restore equilibrium and offer the other "release that which no longer serves" our highest and best!

Q. How are you able to heal the physical, especially for individuals located halfway around the globe from you?

What Is Physical Pain Telling You About Your Emotions, Life Traumas, Fears?

We see ourselves largely as our bodies. Yet, I believe in many cases, the body is not the source of our dis-ease. Non-physical aspects of Self contribute to and detract from our wellness. This is why periodic "energy work" is beneficial! I help others understand what they are telling their bodies and what their bodies are telling them. Awareness = The Power of Choice = The Power to Change!

In offering group and individual mind-body-spirit-emotions healing sessions, I have been startled by the sometimes literal under-emotions presenting as pain and dis-ease in my clients: the jilted man who has "hardened his heart" and had a mild heart attack; the woman who is afraid to move forward fully into adulthood who is experiencing ankle problems; the woman raised to "keep your mouth shut" who suffered a persistent cough; the 20-something told to deny an incestuous rape experience whose spine had twisted under that lie.

It's a kind of "chicken and egg" scenario. Fortunately, once the non-physical component (energetic, spiritual, emotional) is released, the body is "free" to do what it was designed to do best ... Self Heal! These denser energies & emotions present as pain and/or immobility. Other clients have stored traumas and lack of power (particularly from childhood) in various body part. We must realize that dis-ease stored in bodily organs creates "rich soil" for disease!

These individuals (and many others) experienced "miraculous" shifts toward wellness & joy with our session work, releasing their emotional trauma and reconnecting to their inner peace. When spiritual, emotional and/or energetic blocks are released, our life force is free to flow with greater ease in, of, and through the physical form. Even those who have lived without major trauma, have found a lightness and greater sense of Presence with periodic energy healing and body work.

How Far Would You Travel For Inner Peace?

This image came to me around this time in 2013, and I used it as my end-of-year facebook cover image. It's a play on the long-forgotten rear-view mirror statement "Objects Are Closer Than They May Appear." When we apply this spacial warning to our lives, it reflects a great untruth within our "reality". Why do we not see the closeness of our Inner Peace? Why must we struggle? When will we be happy? How can we thrive? A deepening of this visual has come through in recent days.

Some Say "Plateau", I Say "Scenic Overlook"

Kristi on Devil's Bridge plateau in Sedona, AZ
We are well-aware of the negative connotations of "plateauing" when we're on a quest toward a goal. Something has happened and the formula we've been using is no longer yielding the results we are seeking. For some of us, the plateau becomes the destination, as we abandon or original goal or fall into some crevice of "I am not worthy". I am shown this is not the purpose of the plateau!

Some say "plateau", I say "scenic overlook" ...

New Earth


We live in an amazing time in which we may much more clearly observe and affect our path. We can uncover and heal patterns, behaviors, emotions, "stories" that have challenged us in untold numbers of realities. A key tool OR hindrance here is our Free Will. In nearly every moment, we are making a choice; for eons those choices have been unconscious, likely ruled by urges with no consciousness of the choices.

Yet the more we realize what we are deciding, the more choices we see ...

Chasing a Song, Yet There's a Song Bird in Hand?

I have seen more than one client in relationship or career paralysis because they think, if they are not happy with their current situation, their only option is to leave and to start over. Our society has encouraged us to seek that brass ring ... bigger, better, more. But will that really bring you happiness? Or is that a just painful illusion?
