Christina Carlson is an Embodiment and Intuitive Coach. They offer one on one coaching for women and nonbinary folk who are moving beyond deconstructing life, religion, and relationship and into a life of self-knowing, deep connection and peace.
Christina is a Beautiful You Coaching Academy Graduate, Sensual feeler, and Human enthusiast. Her own journey of embodiment led her away from religion, and into discovering her own sexuality, and a new spirituality. She loves holding space for those processing big changes, and giving permission to those ready to explore all that is possible for them.
I understand how important it is to feel confident in life, and to have confidence that won't just disappear when things get confusing or hard. My superpower is in seeing people's unique gifts and helping them uncover their own wisdom and magic. I love to offer tools and practices that help you engage with your own wisdom and play with what might be useful to you so you can handle what life brings to you.
It can be confusing to discover and anchor into your values and who you are at your core after a big transition, like leaving religion, a divorce, or any major loss. I provide space, helpful questions, worksheets and exercises to help you discover these deeper parts of yourself so you can anchor in to who you are now after that loss and to move towards thriving.
Life is a series of stories, chapters, even books. Each of these sections in a way has it's own driving direction. I do not think we ever really "have it all figured out" but I do believe in knowing the next step, and I love helping people uncover what their next big step is, what the next direction for their new chapter is.
When we first connected, I was at odds with myself in a variety of ways. One of the biggest pain points for me was finding out what I wanted to do with my life. Knowing a little bit of Christina’s life journey and how similar it was to mine allowed me to feel comfortable enough to share my hopes and dreams. She made me feel safe enough so that I could share anything with her.
The biggest change that I witnessed in myself is that I am using my voice in ways that I never thought I could. I was always nervous and scared and kept a lot of my emotions inside. I felt that coaching allowed me to realize that was something I was doing and create the steps to help change that in my life.
I'm more confident now, I speak out more. I advocate for myself and I take steps towards changing situations if they don’t feel right for me. I was able to take ownership of my actions and dreams and actively work towards them.
Christina is an incredible person. Her energy and her intuition really helped me make a difference in my life. I would recommend her to be anyone's coach. With her wide range of life experiences, she is able to connect with her clients in a very unique way. She is a true gem- a diamond of the first water.
My experience with Christina was Transformative, Affirming, & Encouraging.
When I first started coaching I was feeling really small. I felt overwhelmed with my role as a mother and disconnected from myself. I really wanted to feel more like myself and be okay with taking up space in the world.
I was in a really hard parenting place and was dealing with a lot of anger, sadness, and guilt. Through coaching I was able to accept myself and however I was feeling—and that it was all valid.
I felt comfortable being honest and open with Christina, and she really held space for me, even though I don’t typically feel comfortable being emotional in front of people.
The biggest change I’ve witnessed in myself is that I feel like me again!
I even decided to start my own business and it felt like a puzzle piece that I’ve been missing for so long.
Christina is truly such a gift. I felt so safe speaking to her about very vulnerable things and she always helped me see that how I feel really matters. She held space for me and affirmed all of my concerns even when I doubted them myself. She is an incredible person and I’m so thankful that I got to work with her.
My experience with Christina was Thoughtful, eye opening and cleansing.
When we first started working together I was at a job I hated. I was feeling out of alignment with myself, my career, and my romantic life.
Throughout our coaching series together I gained self-awareness and confidence which moved my romantic life into a space of trusting in myself and this affected my acting career as well! I quit the job I hated and am pursuing what I love. I realized only I know what I need, and I trust myself to know what that is.
IS IT TIME?
Are you tired? Tired of fighting?
I got to this point in my own journey where I had been shifting my faith, deconstructing my religious upbringing and relationships and I started to realize that even though I had left religion, my life was still revolving around religion. Before it had been all for religion and it became that I was against religion.
I had sort of become addicted to this rage.
Realizing how I had been harmed, seeing the nuance of that.
I am not at all knocking my past self. I think I needed to do exactly what I did.
But there came this point where I realized I did not want my life to be built around what I was against, rather I wanted my life to be built towards lifting up the solution, to be moving towards what I believed could be possible.
I wanted my life to be about being, enjoying, healing, deep loving, and building.
Don’t get me wrong, I %1000 believe in the dismantling if harmful systems and will continue to dismantle things in my own life, particularly racism, homophobia and patriarchy because it is in the air we breathe.
I have built my life with a focus on equity, honoring capacity, service, joy, and compassion. I have defined my life by who I am and What I am for.
My desire is to help and give permission to those who are ready to move beyond just leaving and dismantling religion. Those who are asking “Now What?” “What do I want my life to mean? To be for? To be about?”
There is no wrong answer.
If you feel stuck in identifying just what you are against, and are aching for more, longing for something richer and more fulfilling, I’d love for you to read more about coaching with me.
It just may be that you are ready to build your life around who you are now and what you are for.
