How I became
Christine, The Spiritual G
It's never too late to be your dope self.
What up! So dope to meet you!
A little background check on me: years ago, I was afraid to be who I am. So much, that I shunned my 'darkness'; repressed the parts of me, that were different. Only to discover later on, that this stemmed from holding onto old paradigms (within my environment) and my own limiting beliefs.
Fortunately, (as always) the universe had my back and in 2010, just as I got accepted into an exchange program in SPAIN (my dream then) I was led to discover, that I had a hole in my heart (aka an atrial septal defect). Thank God, that heart surgery started to awaken the shit out of me - to be "reborn"! ( the 'hole' in my heart was avoid to feel, to love - crazy huh?)
That's when I realized I had felt 'empty' inside. I thought to myself: I got a second chance man. I wanna do what I love. Be me. Free from societal labels, old paradigms, self-limiting beliefs, and anything that held me back from being who I am & living my dopest life!
Ouf, it's a tough ride, full of darkness AND excitement at the same time! Ever since my heart surgery, I chose to commit to my inner hustle - To set out on this crazy journey within towards self-discovery, self-growth & self love. It feels never ending, but with time it does get 'easier', And, it's SO worth it.
It all began with "Dance Your Heart Out", (a dance fundraiser I created to raise awareness about heart disease, and ultimately passion), which in turn, I felt pulled to explore art, such as music, dance, acting, stunts. Through these mediums, I realized the more we express our true selves, do what we love, and live in passion, the more we can further discover who we are. And that's when I began to heal...
Throughout my 'awakening', like every one, I was faced with my own darkness. After a decade of 'fighting within' (I was stubborn AF) I finally got fed up and said "F*ck it. Fighting myself hurts way more than to love myself. " That's when I decided to embrace my darkness, the parts of me that felt different - that once made me feel shame & guilt! Whether it was my unconventional ways of thinking & being, of living in shades of grey especially in regards to my sexuality, and of pursuing the path less-traveled as a freelance artist (stunt actress), & entrepreneur in personal branding/coaching, without any university degree).
Having said that, I recently came out as 'bisexual' - as someone who feels in "grey" to my ASIAN family via Youtube. Although I was terrified AF, I was able to do it by choosing to feel free within and love all of who I am, in hopes to inspire others on a similar journey.
So Who Am I?
I am now much more me (and ever changing). I am of many shades - both the dark and the light. I am a creative being, a soul, attracted to depth and growth. I love what I do, from acting, stunts, personal branding/coaching, to storytelling through art.
Sometimes I tell myself,"Damn. If I would've known then what I know now, I could've been my dope self way sooner". But that's the dope thing about this journey. We heal on our own time, and in our own ways ;)
With that said, we are reborn everyday and so far here I am. I don't have all the answers. I'm still healing and at times I question who the f*ck I am, but through it all, I've learned some pretty bad ass "skills" that now help me grow through shit in life lol.
Ultimately, my beliefs, and perspective have SHIFTED, and that
makes ALL the difference.
The more I step into being my dope self, the more I thrive in my dreams, and in life.
You Can Too!
So after a decade of journeying within, Christine, the Spiritual G was born! Today, my vision, my obsession is to help Empower you to be your dope self, and be that spiritual (gangsta) guide for you I would've wanted to have back then, to help align you with who you are, so you can attract all the dope shit meant for you, and in turn, live your dopest life!
So, brave soul, wherever you're at within your journey to
becoming your dope self, It's never too late ! ;)
Dare to be your dope self?
Peace & Much Love,
Christine, The Spiritual G <3
