I am often told that I am the seer of the group. Maybe it’s because I have this sort of uncanny way about myself and I can see, feel, and read people so openly (Empath..INFJ?) I like to link that side of me to the spiritual calling that God has placed on my life since I was a young girl. While the many struggles I had to withstand but endured, my heart always comes back to that secret place where Matthew 6:6 tells me “But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you”. Living a steadfast life in prayer and meditation, I believe is how we can face whatever life throws our way; there is always comfort in GUS, and in that secret place is where we throw all of our burdens.
As a self-made entrepreneur, life coach, intuitive, and reiki master, my mission and purpose is to use my experiences and educational background to help people harness their God-given talents in every area of their lives; through living authentically, self-love, personal development, motivation, and healing.
I have an unyielding passion for guiding and helping individuals and is naturally drawn to influencing others through compassion and understanding. I often wondered if there was more to my life and what was my purpose. A few years ago, I began to take constant note of how my family and friends would always talk to me about their relationships, spiritual life, business endeavors, law of attraction, the universe, and their own self-image.
Though I was pursuing my cosmetology diploma, in the back of my mind, it just wasn’t right for me. I knew that I wasn’t living a God fulfilled life because I honestly felt that what I was doing was not going to give my life meaning. As time went on, I continued to focus on other avenues instead of what I knew I was divinely called to do. I followed my “back then” husband at the time lead in different business endeavors until I decided to just go for it. The thing is, I didn’t know that it would take my mom’s death, and a divorce to alter my life’s calling in order for me to experience God and my purpose more deeply. I am learning to look at the world from a spiritual perspective, where life is more crystal clear to me. I now understanding that love wins in this game we call life!
Now as a certified life coach (I like to call myself a “Soul Coach”), certified reiki practitioner, ordained minister, and an intuitive card reader with my B.S. in Psychology; (currently pursuing my graduate studies in social work) my dream is to become a professional psychotherapist. I know for a certainty that I am walking in divine right, favor, and purpose. I hope to open my practice focusing on alternative healing methods, and therapy. Currently, I own a small boutique called “Christina’s Glam” which was launched in 2018 along with my youngest sister as a way to honor our mother’s death, and do reiki services from my home. I am also a pursuing writer, CBD oil advocate, podcaster, and continue my soul coaching skills through various certifications.
