Hello everyone, Christy Johnson here. I thought I'd take you for a walk outside, as I tell you something I've told very few people before, and pardon the crunching, it's freezing rain on top of snow. What I wanted to share, that I've told only one or two people before, is that I actually love seeing my own videos. I know that probably sounds weird, but it's really self-affirming. It's not narcissistic like "Oh, you're the greatest" and it's not comparison, "Oh, your videos are better than other people's videos," or even that "Your videos are better than they used to be. They're not as crappy as they once were." I'm not doing any of that. It's really more that I see myself, I'm being seen and heard by myself.
Gonna stop crunching - what you see around behind me, that's the golf course. I actually get to be who I am, to really be seen, to be heard, to be affirmed. I actually watched my videos two or three times sometimes, sometimes even more, where I'm like, "Oh, there you are. I know you. You're me." It sounds weird, but it's really quite lovely. And what a departure from how it used to be. I would never have been able to do that in my 20s or my 30s or probably even my 40s. So to being in that place to me is just a huge testament that we can move from self-loathing to self-love. What a shift. I look forward to seeing you in the next video. Take care.
I first participated in a video making challenge in the fall of 2018, curious to see whether I could become comfortable enough to use video in my business. On Day 1 of the challenge I went to the private Facebook group to share the first video I'd ever posted even semi-publicly. I knew nothing about video and I let myself be a beginner without expectations or performance anxiety. Those early videos reflected my non-existent technical skills but I didn't care. By the end of the challenge I felt comfortable creating videos plus I felt good about completing the challenge while being authentic and vulnerable on camera.
Now I support others on their video journeys as a moderator in the video challenge. During most challenges I also create and post videos based on the daily prompt. In fact, the video in this blog post I created with the challenge prompt, "Tell us something about yourself we don't know." I noticed in watching challengers' videos and reading their comments about their own videos, how hard we can be on ourselves. When I was younger, I could never have created or joyfully watched my own videos!
I've spent a lifetime releasing the shame I was taught and in growing my soul consciousness yet it startled me to realize I love my own videos. Now when I watch my videos, I embrace rather than criticize myself. I appreciate who I am now plus I honor all the time, energy, money, focus, commitment, discipline, struggle, and everything else underpinning my transformation. As we transform, we settle more deeply into our bodies and into our lives. Plus as we evolve, we can change the world.

If you're interested in getting video savvy, and possibly enjoy some personal transformation as well, via the powerful, inexpensive video challenge I've described, click here for my affiliate link. You don't have to own a business to participate. The challenges run several times a year, so if registration isn't currently open, you can sign up to be notified when registration begins. Perhaps I'll even be a moderator in your group, wouldn't that be fun?
I love watching my own videos, as odd as it sounds. When I hear other people criticize their own videos, I remember what it was like to be hard on myself but I'm also struck by how far I've shifted from self-conscious to soul conscious.
Holiday traditions need to evolve as we do. People pleasers especially need to pay attention to their inner landscape to explore what does and doesn't resonate in present time.
From Jin Shin Jyutsu® acupressure, we know harmony begins with the breath. Balanced exhale and inhale, as well as other forms of giving and receiving, support health and awareness.
We open with a 45 minute or so Akashic Records consultation. The revealed themes, patterns, and disharmonies drive the table work in conjunction with your "pulses," body reading, and my intuitive insights. A follow-up e-mail documents what occurs during the energy work and includes customized self-helps.
In this work, you remain fully clothed. Just wear whatever will feel comfortable while lying on my massage table. If it's a remote session, I'll ask you to rest while I send energy.
Please consider the personal or interpersonal disharmony that led you to me and how you would like it to shift. During the session, we'll explore and address the origins and drivers of each "project."
No, the records aren’t a good resource for predictions. If there’s something you hope will happen, the records might reveal a series of necessary steps to reach your desired outcome but not the timing. For predictions, please consult a good psychic or astrologer!
Minors are under their parents' legal and energetic jurisdiction until they are 18, regardless of their maturity level.
The greatest benefit occurs when I incorporate all four modalities I practice. The option without the Akashic Records is appropriate for children under 18 who cannot receive readings. A stand-alone reading can bring insight and healing but does not involve my direct interaction with your energetic and physical bodies like my other practices.
No, but you are welcome to record sessions yourself.
Self-helps, both from Jin Shin Jyutsu and the Embodied Energy System, support your continued harmony, accelerate your evolution, and empower you. Plus they make you sparkly!
