Embody and Express Your Soul’s Brilliance

"Being what you are is the simplest. What is difficult is to stop being what you are not." — Mooji

Do you know the truest, deepest, fullest expression of YOU?

If you’ve tapped into this creative essence, your Self with a capital S, are you sharing it with the world? Are you bringing your highest truth and deepest wisdom into your life regardless of where you are, whom you’re with, and what you’re doing?

Maybe you KNOW you’re not. Or perhaps you think you are.

But are you…really?

Is there an area of your life or a particular relationship in which you feel fully expressed and free to be YOU—without shifting, shrinking, or hiding? Is there a little voice that whispers to you, guiding you to create something BIG and encouraging the fullest expression of your unique essence in the world? This is your Self.

Are there other areas of life or relationships in which you’re withdrawing, leaving parts of yourself hidden, or filtering yourself? Is there a voice that tells you that flying under the radar, not rocking the boat, and delaying that Big Dream a bit longer would be easier and more comfortable for everyone? This is your adaptive self.

The adaptive self is a protective mechanism that keeps you small, runs you in circles, and drains your energy by believing the illusion that this chameleon act will keep you safe. 

When you become skilled at shape-shifting to suit your surroundings, it can be tricky to spot the adaptive self when it appears. And even when you’re entirely aware of this shape-shifting act, you can still think you’re operating with transparency and fully expressing your truth…and then realize you’ve been outplayed by the chameleon once again.

Years ago, an intuitive told me that my purpose was to inspire people. “You’re going to help people live in their full expression,” she explained.

WTF did that even mean?! I had no idea.

If I didn’t know what it meant to live in my full expression, then how was I going to help other people do such a thing? I barely had the living thing down at that point.

Other people’s opinions, expectations, and needs were driving me one minute, and my own unconscious fears had the wheel the rest of the time. I was in full chameleon mode—matching myself to all of the swirling energies around me.

I knew nothing of my own wants, feelings, or needs. But I was committed to knowing ALL of myself, and discovering the parts of me that were hiding in the shadows. So, I kept up the whole self-awareness thing.

I studied with teachers and mentors, worked with shamans and gurus, hired coaches and practitioners. I released years of trauma and stuck emotions, layers of stagnant energy, and what felt like lifetimes of beliefs, patterns, and conditioning. I surrounded myself with believing mirrors and people who could reflect back to me what I couldn’t see.

The more debris I cleared, the more space there was to fill with my creative essence—the unique vibration of ME. My Self was emerging from the rubble.

I slowed down. I aligned with my natural rhythms. I listened to that little voice inside guiding me to something bigger. I discovered my gifts in the unseen world. I found the Aura Reading and the Rising Star.

My magic returned.

I finally realized what it meant to live in my full expression. And I was living it—huzzah! THIS WAS IT, people.

Except, the truth was, I WASN’T living my full expression.

Not quite…

I realized that this new reality, starring my capital S Self, was actually constructed behind the scenes.

You could only see the show if you had a backstage pass.

My full expression was a limited engagement.

How was I still hiding? After all this F*ING work? How did this slip past my awareness?

My adaptive self found a way to cleverly and carefully reveal “the authentic me.” I honestly thought I was out of the magic closet. I mean, I talked about witches and auras and Mayan astrology on Instagram! I thought I’d worked on all that fear of being seen stuff. Remember that one time when I did a Facebook live about it? Done and done.

It sure seemed like I was expressing my Self. And I was...part of the time. I was showing ALL of me…to SOME people.

The process of discovering the truest, deepest, fullest version of yourself is messy. It takes A LOT of resilience, support, and commitment to align your inner truth with your outward expression. As you grow and expand, your vibration is constantly shifting, so staying attuned to your Self and its creative essence is a practice.

And, once you connect with your Self and embody that higher vibration, unveiling the Big You in the world of form can be chaotic, vulnerable, and terrifying!

It helps to have someone watching your blind spots and supporting you along the way. You know, in case you think you’ve emerged from the magic closet, but you’re still running the whole operation behind the curtains. It also helps to have a high-powered energetic turbo boost like the Rising Star to kick things into gear.

The Rising Star is a 21-day energy healing that functions like a cosmic vacuum, removing layers of energetic debris and stagnant gunk from your chakras, and clearing your system on all levels to create space for you to hold more light. Then it fills you up with high-frequency jet fuel—potent life force energy—to prepare you for launch.

This process has changed my life and the lives of so many of my clients. And, up until now, I’ve been doing this work behind the scenes. So, it’s time to LEVEL UP and allow this magic to flow more freely in the world.

This is why I created EMERGE: a three-month 1:1 immersion (powered by the Rising Star!) to clear whatever is standing between you and your full expression in the world.

So, here it is.

My emergence. I’m all the way out there.




⋗ You’re ready to face the parts of yourself that are holding you back from taking a Big Leap or taking the next step toward your Big Dream.

⋗ You’ve reached a plateau in one or more areas of your life and you’re ready for the NEXT LEVEL.

⋗ You’re supporting the evolution of humanity and the planet and you want to increase your energetic capacity to HOLD MORE LIGHT.

⋗ You’re in transition and you need an incubation space to birth a new vision, a new business, a new creation, or a new expression of yourself.

⋗ You’ve been doing The Work and you’re ready to accelerate your healing process and get to the core of the blocks, beliefs, patterns, and dynamics that are no longer serving you.



⋗ Feel the freedom of connecting to your innate wholeness and rewriting the stories that you’re telling yourself.

⋗ Open yourself to RECEIVE MORE and GIVE MORE of yourself and your gifts to the world in return.

⋗ Increase your energetic capacity and create a BIGGER IMPACT for the people, communities, and causes that you’re serving.

⋗ Have a safe space to drop in, transform, get messy, and be fully present in the in-between—releasing the old and welcoming the new.

⋗ Clear the runway for a quantum leap, and create an intentional space to power up and ready yourself for launch.

My Rising Star experience was transformational, grounding, and powerful. I have been juggling some health issues and a blood test I had done several months before this had a VERY different reading (very low) compared to having it re-tested after the triple Rising Star series was complete. My doctors and nurses could not explain the change so swiftly, but I know what did it.

The first two Rising Star cycles brought a deeper connection to and understanding of my family—the ROOTS—especially my maternal lineage. There was empathy flowing in both directions—both to and from me reaching back generations—and a lot of necessary release. The third Rising Star cycle was a more surreal experience—a gentle descent into shadow work. It did not feel scary or intimidating AT ALL. It felt refreshing, simply showing me what was there and what was no longer serving me.

I am beyond grateful for your magical practice, Kristina, and for the ultimate lesson I learned here: I too have magic of my own to work and heal with; we all do.

Prior to my sessions with Kristina, I’d never done ANY type of energy work. I had no idea what to expect or if it would even “do” anything. My first Rising Star brought up a huge issue I’d been holding onto for years. Somehow, I felt compelled to finally face it and release it, and it was such an emotional, beautiful, powerful process.

After three months of working with Kristina, I felt like a whole new person! I was so much lighter and full of energy—things I hadn’t felt in a long time. I’m so grateful to Kristina and the Rising Star for bringing me back to life!

The journey will begin by identifying your energy leaks—the circumstances, relationships, and dynamics that are connected to seeking external power. You will examine how you have denied, repressed, and limited yourself, and bring awareness to the adaptive selves that are still operating from fear. You will observe ways in which you are leaking energy through habits, distractions, addictions, self-protective thinking, self-sabotaging behaviors, and unhealthy relationship dynamics.

Coming into awareness about these energy leaks and dynamics is the first step to EMPOWER yourself and create a new reality. You cannot change what you cannot see! Once you bring attention to these disempowering loops, you can begin shifting into your creative power.


Now that you have identified your energy leaks and reclaimed your power, there is a lot more energy flowing. It is important to give that energy space to move and EXPRESS itself! You’ll be working with expression on ALL levels—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual—and allowing both the fearful parts and the loving parts of yourself to express themselves. This creates more space for wholeness and integration on all levels.

Building on what you discovered in the first Rising Star cycle, you will experiment with exercises and techniques to disrupt your disempowering patterns and express yourself in new ways.


Now that you have reclaimed your power, and moved energy through different channels of expression, you have become more discerning with your energetic authority. All of this has created more space in your being to EXPAND, hold more high-frequency energy, and lighten up! During this cycle, you will move through a series of activations to increase your energetic capacity and multisensory perception. During this final pass of the Rising Star energy, your inner teacher will guide you through the daily reflection process.

To complete your journey, you will integrate the parts of yourself that are ready to return to wholeness. You will set intentions around how to invest your energy and take inspired action based on what you choose to create with this increased capacity.

The Rising Star feels like a major LEVEL UP. It brought up and cleared some of my deep-rooted limiting beliefs and old patterns in my relationships. I started speaking my truth in big ways, initiating difficult conversations and standing my ground, which felt terrifying before. I experienced so many inner and outer shifts during my first session, I did three Rising Stars in a row and went through an incredible nine weeks of growth and expansion.

Come Out of Hiding

"The way I've shown up in the world since I've done my three Rising Stars has completely changed. As a coach, I've done so much transformation work over the last decade. For me, the Rising Star transformation has happened FAST—faster than anything I've ever done.

Before the Rising Star, I was hiding—hiding my voice in my business, hiding what I was feeling from my husband. The way I speak and communicate now is totally different. I can be completely authentically me—all the time."

Laurie Davis Edwards (“Star”) — love coach and founder of The Worthy One
