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

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 we were 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".

They sent us away to teach us how to be sensible, logical, responsible, practical. And I lived in their world, where I could be so dependable, clinical, oh intellectual, cynical.

But at night when all the world's asleep, the questions ran so deep the the magic called to me HOME 🫢. I'll tell you what I learned. I remembered who we are ... CHOSEN to come here, created in love and LIGHT "with snips and snails, and puppy-dogs' tails ... sugar and spice, and everything nice." Remember?!?

Once I remembered who we are, I saw choices previously hidden in plain sight. Ways I kept me from being ME. For more than 10 years I've been teaching to recognize and love their blinds pots free. What a SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS world we're in! 

Fill your days with glee, wonder, curiosity, compassion, love and rediscover your childhood magic, wonder, and innate LIGHT. Join US😍 Book your Spiritual Guidance Reading or Perspective Reboot session/package today!

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❣️ I'm sure she'd also tell you that she doesn't think my hair reflects my sexuality, my gender, whether I'm a good or a bad person, etc. I posted my short hair as my profile picture on FB and had many, many positive comments.

To push this hair affair further ... I've had more than one friend/client tell me their husband "wouldn't let them" cut their hair. Perhaps my husband is secure with himself and with us, but I'm left feeling LUCKY (and that feels ucky), that at least 80 hairstyles into our relationship, his love for me and my sexual appeal to him is not dependent upon a particular style, color, or length of my hair. Everyone should have that freedom; and if you don't, maybe that is at the root of your judgment of others.

I am the first to admit that I didn't always see my biases and had NO CLUE that my judgment of others was telling me about mySELF for many years. So, REGARDLESS OF YOUR GENDER and SEXUALITY, I urge you to explore and confront your attitudes about hair, lack of it, dependence upon it, the role or energy we expend in taking care of it, who can wear what, etc. What is the judgment-mirror telling you today? I am looking at how I judge others by their outer appearance and self-correcting my biases through gentle observation, focus, conscious change.

The bottom line is that these types of judgments are STEREOTYPES and do not serve Our Highest Good!

Looking Deeply and More Closely at Stereotypes

The mind can be like an evil librarian ~ searching resources to quickly apply labels which categorize, document, and classify that thing being observed. Perhaps such a mental space is the birthplace of STEREOTYPES; labels and classifications may be okay for books, but not for human BEings. They HURT❣️

Were STEREOTYPES created and perpetuated because they quiet the mind? See the inverse relationship between STEREOTYPES and CURIOSITY; we lose or abandon our curiosity when we select a STEREOTYPE.

We think we know what we're looking at. We've labeled it. We don't need to "worry about that" anymore. Well, you can look at and observe it without worrying about. Really stop and observe some of the millions of things your mind has already labeled in day-to-day, right in the space you're sitting in at this moment. Look at it as if you've labeled nothing. Wow! What you see and what shows up ... πŸ€“

Watch yourself. We have all learned to STEREOTYPE; but this type of CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM was created / is running unconsciously in a system/energy that will always separate us, rather than bring us to common ground.

Once you see the colors and shapes and textures you missed, your mind will likely find stereotypes archaic, rude, not of Love.  Be curious, tell the mind "thanks for your hard work, but we're going to hang loose".  ✌️ This is being PRESENT and so much a gift to live as an observer and participant in all that is going on around, in and through us!

CatDog. Artist Peter Hannan puts the labeling challenge front and center ... haha. Watched a couple episodes to see where CatDog was at; and true to what we're trying to change, CatDog fights himself/herself/themselves. That typically turns out badly.

Labels created in low vibrational stereo separate us and bring pain because we are connected. Love, laughter, compassion connect us  in ways that just feel so much better for the soul xo

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 for not only our children, but firstly 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!

Seeing the Larger Picture and Healing AS and THROUGH LOVE

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 will create positive change in our world; hate and aggression 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 own "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!

Celebrating Freedom Found in Love

Celebrating Love ©Kristi Borst #healingresonancellc
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.
