Coming Soon! Join me for a very special experience at the historic Davenport Hotel in Spokane, WA on September 21st, 2019.
Alchemy LIVE will provide the precise tools you need to connect with your inner alchemist and kiss fear, doubt and confusion goodbye while moving into clarity, confidence and strength no matter what adventures arise in your sacred journey of life.
You will discover how to recognize the gold within, embrace life as an adventure, create sacred space and partner with the benevolent forces of the Universe. You will also transform your communication through the power of deep listening, grow stronger with truth-telling, reap hearty benefits from the Stillness Solution, open your spirit to initiation with the twin gatekeepers of courage and respect, and harness the alchemy of appreciation.
Every time I’ve emerged from intensely soul-testing experiences, I’ve done so with fierce determination to distill the alchemy that provided safe passage, and offer it with open hands to ease the paths of the next travelers. Now I have the incredible honor of being able to help you reawaken into a life of greater freedom, aliveness, and possibility!
Interested?Email me today at christy @ thealchemistsheart.com with YES in the subject line. I’ll send you more information once the beautiful details are ready!
How does Christy hide her wings? I’m convinced that she’s part angel, part mystical fairy—both of which combine to make her a gifted healer.
She can instantly transform any space, virtual or in-person, into a safe and sacred space where those struggling can be welcomed, guided, and transformed through her alchemy. I don’t know how she does it, I’m just so grateful she does.
“Dear Christy, you are a godsend, an angel. You appeared to me right when I needed you and I am beyond grateful for the time you took to help me and the love you poured into it. You helped me get clear on many things which led me into the healing process. I was really in a depression when you came into my life and the transition that took place through your alchemy work was miraculous to say the least. Your guidance and wisdom opened my eyes to see even more of my path. I am now pushing forward on that path. I have taken your advice and couldn’t be more happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

“I think of Christy as an amazing balance between a power force and a highly enlightened light worker.
She combines a deep understanding of the spiritual and emotional issues in your life with a talent for giving you tangible, practical, easily do-able solutions that you can use to make things better right away.
Christy definitely hears what you’re saying and really gets what you’re going through.
But, then she makes a point of saying “Okay, this is exactly what you can do to make your life easier.
Go out and try these one or two things and report back.” And I really like that Christy’s style is never rigid.
She’s not invested in her own particular system or structure. Instead, she says “Here’s what I know works.
Make this your own, come back and tell me how it went, and we’ll make adjustments and tweaks so it’s perfect for you.
” I would definitely recommend Christy’s services to anyone who wants to create space in their own life and reconnect to what matters.
She gives you the tools you need to create something that is amazing. At the end of the day, she helps you transform, you just have to go out do it!”
Alchemy at its finest! I was right smack in the middle of a live video coaching session when this amazing autumnal aspen fluttered her sun-dappled leaves, captivating my heart.
My client had just shared a painful conversation in which her partner was more interested in whether the clothes were reliably cleared off the top of the dresser than in connecting emotionally.
I suppose another coach might have launched into a proper intervention.
I did nothing of the sort.
Something RADIANT was happening, so I asked her to wait for a moment.
Grabbing my camera, I climbed right on top of my desk so I could get the best angles. Because when the Universe says Come Play With Me, I do. I highly recommend you do, too. Something good ALWAYS comes from it.
With glistening eyes and a buoyed spirit, I returned to the conversation with exactly the message my client needed to hear.
You see, at the heart of her challenge was the idea that as a responsible adult, there was no room left for experiencing daily magic.
That somehow, if she just buckled down, she might somehow discover a deep longing to generate financial spreadsheets and a passion for having a home that was perfectly tidy all the time.
And those messy, inconvenient art projects her spirit is prone to wander into? They could be set aside for “someday” when it might be more practical for them to be tended to.
Except that none of these ideas fit.
The truth is that her partner fell in love with her BECAUSE of her creative spirit. And being open to the tiny, magical moments doesn’t mean being irresponsible, it means being ALIVE! And there is more than enough space in their lives to accommodate what each of them needs most.
So this, Dearheart, is a call to being ALIVE – and to EMBRACING whatever it is in your life that people around you might not understand. Chances are extremely high they have simply forgotten how to re-member (to put back together) their own essential selves….and the answer is NOT for you to shrink down to more “manageable” proportions, but to step into your own alchemical power and REMEMBER your own uniquely magical qualities….which, in turn, will help them remember theirs.
If you can use more tiny, magical moments as you create a life that is big enough and beautiful enough for your spirit, come play with me! I am opening up TWO spots (yes, only two!) for 6 months of private coaching. If you are interested in deeply transformative alchemy for your life, comment now and let me know. I will respond personally and schedule a no-obligation 30-minute heart whispering session to see if this is right for you.
I offer this as a gift – the first in a series of true-life stories. May they bring the inspiring breath of life more deeply through your mind and body, helping to energize all that you wish to co-create in the world.
Please let me know how this resonates – I love hearing from you!
With Love, Christy
The inspiration arrived like a thunderbolt.
Celebrating my husband’s birthday with a fishing expedition off Vancouver Island, British Columbia, I’d made the unusual request to be dropped off on a tiny, sparsely inhabited island. My husband and his friend were venturing into rough, open waters, and I’d had more than my share of this form of “character building” the previous day.
I surveyed the terrain and set off exploring the island’s interior. The trees welcomed me, so I lingered with them a bit, but the beautiful cove on the opposite shoreline spoke to my heart. Making my way to the sandy beach, I settled gratefully into its warm embrace.
Nourishing myself with a light lunch, I found the sun-dappled waters irresistibly drawing me forward.
Assuring myself of privacy with a quick look around, I stripped off my clothes to accept their invitation.
Swimming into the cove, I could imagine no more perfect way to commune with the elements, allowing their wisdom to literally wash over me.
Schools of fish darted past, roiling just under the surface.
Alert to the presence of sea mammals hunting below, I marveled at my lack of fear. The ocean demands respect, and I was unaccustomed to diving in alone. I simply knew in my bones that I was most welcome, and at that moment, no harm would befall me.
Taking my fill of communion and giving thanks, I returned to shore, eagerly anticipating a sun-kissed nap.
Nestling into the sand, I gave myself over to the earth, relaxing my body completely.
I had hoped for sleep, but that was not to come. Receiving the incredible support of the energies surrounding me, I considered the question burning in my soul.
The tug to be of greater service had become unrelenting in recent months. Books I’d not yet authored appeared in completed form within my dreams, vanishing as I awoke. Potent allies I’d not yet met collaborated with me, round-table style, names eluding my waking consciousness. The time had arrived to expand beyond my comfortable local counseling and coaching practice. There was something I needed to do, but what?
“The call is strong. I know the time is now. What is the next right step to move forward and serve the larger purpose of my soul?”
A website flashed before my eyes.
Hesitating, a painful memory brushed my mind of an earlier website. I had poured love into it but it fell apart after my life had disintegrated and I’d barely found the courage to rise from the ashes.
Fortunately, I’ve never been one to shy away from messages of the spirit.
“All right, what form shall this take?”
Listening intently, I noted my steady heartbeat.
“I recognize you as a true friend. I’ve patched you with band-aids and bailing twine, and you keep showing up. In doing so, you allow me to be present for other people. I’ve been called a healer, but I’m not. People heal through their own connection with the Divine. I simply hold sacred space to help them tap into that connection to begin transforming their lives. At heart, I’m not a healer, I’m an alchemist.”
The shock of this truth coursed through my body. Breath catching, I sat bolt upright.
“That’s it! The heart of an alchemist. The Alchemist’s Heart.”
Are you ready to gain some ideas about how to soothe your spirit on a rocky adventure? Ever wonder where the BLEEP your bridge in life is?
You’ve come to the right place!
I’m sending you love from 8,500′ on my high altitude journey into the remote Northwestern region of Salta, Argentina. We had one heck of an adventure in the foothills of the Andes this week seeking a “bridge” shown on a map that supposedly crossed the Rio Calchaqui.
Let’s be absolutely clear, there was no bridge.
Maybe you’ve had days like this.
My traveling companion, aka “Hubby,” got a hankering to cross to the other side of the valley.
After all, there could be ruins of ancient civilizations hiding in those hills. Very little gets him excited like the prospect of discovering something almost nobody has seen for a thousand years!
Personally, I have LOTS of other things that get me excited, and I was pretty damn sure there was no way we were going to find a proper crossing place. The “roads” around here are not paved. They require a steady hand, a sturdy constitution, and an adventurous (and possibly certifiable) mind.
You can imagine what the “non-roads” – aka goat tracks – are like.
But away we went, seeking the unknown and wow, did we find it.
I wasn’t exactly embracing the experience.
I WAS racking my brain with questions like “You the *#@! do you soothe your spirit in times like this?!”
A teddy bear sounded like a good idea, so there was a moment I declared aloud that I wanted one that very instant (which grownups don’t wish for, right?)!
There were longer moments when I focused on relaxing and breathing while repeating to myself, “Next year I get to choose our trip, and we are going to ITALY!”
Then there was the magic moment when I realized my husband was absolutely, positively NOT STRESSED. AT ALL.
And then my curiosity took over.
I stopped focusing on my own discomfort and started wondering how it was possible that we were having wildly different experiences.
Maybe there was more to the story than I realized.
I asked how he was feeling, and if he was enjoying himself.
Not in a snarky way, in an authentic, connecting way.
I asked if he felt confident that we would be able to get safely back to the actual roads.
Yes, he did because “there’s a farmhouse nearby that a that must have a tractor” 😉
By tapping into his pleasure in our exploration, my entire nervous system settled.
At which point I noticed the most marvelous feeling.
A familiar energy of love enfolded me, one I attribute to the Divine Feminine, in the form of Miryam, otherwise known as Mother Mary.
This powerfully gentle support brought me back into alignment with my center, and the rocky trip back across the river was much more tolerable.
Pretty sure we crossed through private territory that belonged to this llama, one of the treasures of the journey 😉 The regal way
he surveyed his domain brought a smile to my eyes and heart.
I’m glad to get to share him, and my journey, with you. We are all adventurers in life, and when you know you’re in good company, it’s easier to discover a little more peace and pleasure along the way!
In celebration of my 100th post (YAY!!!), I invite you into the remarkable adventure of exploring the Hero’s Journey in your life with a hearty dose of alchemy for adventurers.
There is a pattern in all the great stories of the world that are really one story – one monomyth, with different faces. This is the hero’s story – the sacred journey ofyour life.
Moms, in light of Mother’s Day, I dedicate this exploration of “J” in our A to Z alchemy series to you and the profound process of new parenthood.
I offer you two short videos, one easy infographic and one condensed list. Taking a few minutes with these concepts will help connect you with your inner alchemist to bring clarity, understanding and even peace to strengthen you in your incredible journey.
I know you bring your heart and soul forward to honor other worthy people, but do you do this for yourself? It’s time to learn the essential elements you need to honor your deepest truth and connect with your inner alchemist as we explore the letter “H” in our A to Z alchemy series.
The first and most important tool is honesty. Hiding from or ignoring the way you feel won’t protect you. It can prevent you from gathering the help and information you need to feel as healthy and whole as possible.
Bringing your awareness to what you are dealing with and how you feel from the inside out is incredibly empowering. Give yourself total permission to actually know how you feel.
Ready to learn the key to fundamentally enhancing your quality of life? The ultimate positive psychology resource?
It’s my beauty secret.
The fabulous state of flow is freaking AMAZING.
Haven’t had the pleasure yet?
Join in our exploration of A to Z alchemy with the concept of flow as a state of consciousness in which we are completely absorbed in an activity, particularly one that uses our creative capacity.
Remember a moment in your life when you were fully engaged in something you loved, when self-consciousness disappeared, you felt strong, alert, capable and you lost track of time.
In that moment, you were in a state of flow, deeply connected to your inner alchemist.
It is my passion to share alchemy for adventurers in life, so I’m letting you in on the surprising secret:
This optimal experience does NOT occur during relaxing, receptive, passive times. The happiness of flow is not something that happens to us, it is alchemy we can actively court & encourage to enter into our lives!
It’s time to discover dynamic dance benefits to energize your life!
Did you know dance is natural therapy for gathering strength, increasing self-confidence, opening up your capacity for healthy self-expression and bringing greater enjoyment into all areas of your life? It’s true! It’s a brilliant choice for connecting with your inner alchemist.
Powerful mind-body dance benefits are too great to limit to official dance classes. Join in our exploration of the letter “D” in our A to Z alchemy series as I share alchemy for adventurers in life and note that dance is designed to enjoy anywhere, anytime.
I’m not afraid to break out dancing in my office during sessions. A little jig of happiness often bursts forth in spontaneous honoring of a client’s WIN. (Have I mentioned how much I love your wins?) Sometimes we’ll even blast the music and groove for a few minutes. Everyone else in the building, including my husband, quietly and professionally providing chiropractic care, wonder what the heck is going on…. and, more importantly, WHY ARE THEY MISSING THE PARTY?!
Your body has an incredible capacity for guiding you in the direction of right action. You just have to know how to access the alchemy.
Let’s explore the brilliant letter “B” in the alchemical alphabet in our A to Z alchemy series with my top two techniques for body-mind wellness. “Body as compass” AND belly dancing both encourage deeper communication, centering, grounding & wise action.
