Colli K Christante
On a very crisp winter evening sitting in the back seat of the car returning home after a figure skating performance, my brother asked me why I did not skate as great as my friend Susan. I never responded to him but deep inside I knew the reason - - my power, my sparkle was gone. Looking up into the night sky filled with aura beaurialis and millions of twinkling stars, I could feel the hot tears slicing my cheek open.
A few months later my mom passed away - I was 14. That moment, that night was the beginning of a quest. I continued to search and change and grow and heal through spending many nights talking to the stars looking for that somewhere I belonged. I wanted to return to the feeling, the joy, the passion the love I once held for skating. I began feeling like an outsider all the time yet when I talked to the stars, I felt hope. Constellations, stars, became my constant companion.
The fear of rejection (abandonment became part of my psyche. Even though the actual events causing rejection (abandonment) were infrequent, I had to deal with the fear all the time (even though it was unconscious). That is how I created pain to always be there. By doing things to avoid pain, pain ran my life and I ran right into more rejection and abandonment. I would attract people, (men) mostly and places that would guarantee pain. All my thoughts and feelings were affected by my fears. Then Family Constellations and Freedom From Self Sabotage entered my life and I saw how my behavior patterns based upon the avoidance of pain became a doorway to the pain itself. If I was afraid of being rejected and abandoned by someone and I approached th person (s) with the intention of winning their acceptance, I was on thing very thin ice. It did not take much - sometimes a look or they would say the wrong thing and I would feel the pain of rejection and abandonment. The bottom line was once I approached them in the name of rejection (abandonment) I would be dancing on the edge of rejection and abandonment throughout the entire interaction. One way or another, the feelings worked their way back to my motive behind my actions. the avoidance of pain is what my actions were linked to and I would feel that link in my heart. The heart is where the pain is and until I felt so much pain as I went through my days and nights.
I had this core of pain in my heart. my personality traits and behavior patterns were all about avoiding this pain. I avoided it by keeping my weight a certain way, wearing certain clothes, talking a certain way, and choosing a certain hairstyle. Everything I did was to avoid this pain until I did not. That is when Family Constellations training and Freedom From Self Sabotage entered and changed my life 180.

My life has been an ongoing journey to a deeper and more intimate relationship with the Divine and being of greater service to the individual and collective awakening (Awakening goes beyond coaching, teaching, mentoring and sponsorship to include the level of vision, mission, and spirit.) I support another person by providing contexts and experiences which bring out the best of that person’s understanding of love, self, and spirit.

An awakener puts other people in touch with their own missions and visions by being in full contact with his or her own vision and mission).
