I Did a Giant Scary Thing & You Get to See!

Okay.

You know that I have lots of issues about being seen.  I have old, crappy issues with never feeling pretty enough or thin enough or smart enough or anything enough.  But I am working on all of that diligently, to say the least.

But it is also still blocking me from taking my work up a level or TEN.

Like, I know I need to make videos.  I know I need to put myself out there on a whole other level of honesty.  But I haven't been able to make myself.

Then my dear friend, Heather, comes along and asks me to do a soul-bearing interview...via Skype.  VIDEO!!!  AHHHHH!!!!!

Alas, it was posted today.  And it turns out, it was an awesome, eye-opening thing to do!

Go! Watch it...right here.

Hi, I just watched the video and I can totally resonate with all that you said on our beliefs and patterns of ourselves. I also felt you are a very good speaker and super cute so never get down on that! Keep raising your vibration and writing that inspiring blog! Patty

Wow, wow and wow! Did I mention wow?
You are so fabulous and this is such a giant step. I'm so happy for you, I have tears in my eyes as I'm typing this.
You know, I'm tend to be hyper-critical of the way people come across in videos (maybe why I haven't done one myself yet...) but I have to say you did it really well - your smile, your energy, your lovely voice. Well done!!

Christine,
Thank you for posting this wonderful video of you! Seeing you "live" adds another dimension to your work, it's hard to explain. You are beautiful and I loooove that super-cute hairstyle on you! As always, I envy the women who are able to take your classes. Someday I will come to one of your workshops.

Ahhh Beautiful Christine!
So lovely to see you, and hear your voice!
And so brave! I am so proud of you; that was awesome...
So awesome that I made the Canadian sit down and watch it too :D

Thank you for sharing your story with all of us; it has meant so much to me personally, as I'm sure it has to so many others. You have been a blessing to SO MANY!

I was looking for a quote from Julian of Norwich this am. Thought it would cheer me up. While looking, I came across another one which I thought I would share since it pertains to my perception of you, esp after viewing video!

Here it is:

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

I am just overwhelmed by the responses to this video.

And Brenda..that quote...thank you. I will leave it at that rather than doing my usual protesting... ;)

You are even more lovely "in person" than your blog shows...I wanted to hear more. Thanks for taking a chance, you encourage me to do the same.

Christine, what a pleasure to watch this video of you. Oh, my! You are so beautiful, really. :-) And I am very proud of you and your ability to stretch yourself. Go!

And I was so happy to learn about Heather and the Sophia Institute. I joined and will enjoy her ebook. Thank you so much for sharing you and all of this...
