“The Paradox of Power”

Most of us share ourselves with the world through a carefully constructed lens through which we think others wish to see.The responsibility as public figures that we actually hold is the exact opposite: To allow the fires in our lives to burn away our artificial vision of who we think we are and shed layer upon layer to remember and rekindle who we really are. Unadorned and unaffected. Fabulous and not perfect. Through this continuing journey into ultimate vulnerability comes our greatest opportunity, strength, and ability to connect with and influence others. The key to unlocking true power lies waiting for us to discover deep within our hearts.

Christine Powers is a Cathedral of Sound. She is a movement, expressing herself through constantly evolving creation, which often looks like speaking, writing, teaching, mentoring, designing… and singing. Christine is an activator – awakening hearts – always inviting us to uncover our unique soul-signature and break free of our perceived limitations. An ordained minister, Reiki Master-Teacher and sound healer, Christine lives with her family on 100 wild acres in the Adirondack Mountains of New York.

“Take A Chance”

Christy will share three principles on how to take advantage of an opportunity even in the mist of uncertainty. Its call the CNI principle.
1. The first principle: Call out your inner strength. God has put an inner strength in each of us and sometimes, it’s hard to see and believe in ourselves especially when we get hit by life, we think of our past challenges and failures.
2. The second principle- Never lose sight of your purpose, you have been here to inspire people, you have come to change lives, you have come to make a difference, and if you never lose sight of your purpose you don’t focus on the past challenges, struggles, failures, mistakes, you focus on the people and no matter everything we faced in the past.
3. The last CNI principle: How you take advantage of an opportunity even in the mist of pain. The I, Invest in yourself. Position yourself. Why? When you invest in yourself, you increase your value, you increase your mindset. You increase your mental capacity to go after what you want.
