The Ladybird On Your Hand

I was on the train last night going in to the city to celebrate my friend’s new book, and the ride felt unnaturally long. It was as if we were traveling thousands of miles. I have been on that train many times. The 30 minutes go by so fast normally, but not last night. It was almost as if I had stepped outside of my life. Outside of everything. The struggle. The hurry. The pursuit of…

We Walked on the Edge

It’s like the side of your foot doesn’t have anywhere to rest on. You can’t stand still when you are on there. There is no space to. It is as if you can lose it all. It is the all or nothing arena. You feel like throwing up just before you step on it. Sleep is unachievable. And that foot never gets to have a whole area under it. I am talking about what it feels like to step on the edge.…

What If I Can

My mind today is everywhere. Its raising. It’s quiet. Then its loud. Then it’s scared. It’s scared. A lot. So many of you travelled to be here with me for our Life Reentry weekend. And I want to give you the moon. The stars. The whole galaxy. Everything. Everything I am. And I will. My mind will try to tell me “what if you can’t Christina.” But I know I don’t need to be scared. You…

I Hid So Well, I Didn’t Know I Was Hiding

I hide inside moments. I literally hide there. I am so afraid of change. Whenever something new is on its way to me, I hide inside time. Do you know why I created the Life Reentry® work? Because I needed it to get myself out of all the hiding I was doing. I am the master hider. The master waiting room resident. It’s not even that I am stuck but I like to hide from life, from big things,…

What Is Your Big Decision After Loss?

There is so much loss in making big decisions. Most of them include saying goodbye to something you have done for a long time. An experience your brain is used to having. A way of life you have known. An expression of self. Making a big decision requires you to feel loss. And this is why we keep postponing them. We try to avoid more pain. Change is full of grief, did you know? One of the…

The Good and the Bad of Life After Loss

After walking next to so many of you living life after loss, I witnessed some tough truths. Here is what I learned from you and from my own journey. You will feel lonely even when you are with others. You will question your values, beliefs and all the things your parents taught you. You will be angry longer than you will be sad. The simple routine task of taking the trash out will break your…

We Need More Than Love

It is both simple and the most complex thing in the whole wide world. The weakest and the strongest. I am talking about how we have to be after loss. We are asked to be vulnerable and at the same time stoic to get through our day to day. Most people find their way to the duality of life after without anyone guiding them. It is a requirement to be and do both and not for a week or two, but…

The Treasure Chest

A friend asked me the other day. Do I still feel grief when I write these letters to you. And I said yes I feel it. But not in the way most people think. I feel loss deeply. But not just for one person, experience, moment. But many. I write from this infinite place of loss every week. It is a treasure chest. A place where everything lives forever. A place where I feel ageless. Where…

Take a Chance

“Trust me.” I heard the most faint whisper say. “It’s going to be ok. Do it.” “Do what?” I responded. “Take a chance.” the whisper said. “On yourself.” The whisper continued as if it knew my most private thoughts. As if it lived inside my mind, in between the struggle. The doubts. The worry. “But how would I know if it’s the right thing?” I said and shook my head. “You won’t.” And I waited…

The Visit

It is said that grief lasts forever. In a way it does. It lives inside of you for decades. Silenced by life, awakened by memories. The mind has the ability to bring someone back to life and make them timeless. Immortal. And so it is for me and my girls in our visit to Denmark this week, his home country. And so it is, we brought him back to life, visiting his best friends, his parents,…
