Developing Your Inner Knowing

Connect with Your Goals

Recently, I have been asking patients and reiki students, How would it feel in your body to reach your goals? The responses have been telling, mainly because at first they describe the idea of reaching goals as just that, an idea. But I ask again, how would it feel in your body to reach your goals? They begin to describe what it feels like to work towards those goals: strength, powerful self-love, confidence, trust in who I am, increasing clarity in what I offer to the world. So in your body, once again, when you reach your goals, how does it feel? Perhaps it's a lifting of the heart, calmness in the shoulders, lengthening of the spine, a gentle thrumming in the mind and gut, freedom in the joints: these are just some of the physical internal shifts the body experiences in the reach of your goals. Being in this kind of expression of who you are would imply you are in a state of creative expansiveness, allowing a larger and larger exchange of energy through you as you interact with people on a more extensive scale.

But how do we get there? As you feel into your dreams, where do you feel the resistance in your body? Christopher Penczak, Asenscion Magic, states that “The higher self of an individual oftimes requires the person to experience particular illnesses or injuries for personal growth, to allow the consciousness to expand… If you learn to process the unwanted (underlying thought) pattern, the intensity of symptoms diminish and you can release the pattern completely.” Oftentimes I ask a returning patient about the symptoms they started with. They often forget that they even had them because they were able to make positive shifts in their way of being that made the symptom no longer relevant!

All kinds of interventions into our health, be they allopathic (medical) or vitalistic (holistic), buy us time to shift habits that no longer serve us. These habits can be recurring negative thoughts, fears and limiting beliefs, or it can be taking in foods and chemicals that cause deficiency or toxicity, stressing the organ meridians that perpetuate and reinforce the fear-based emotions and self-perceptions that keep us small and safe.

So how do we shift? The first step is tuning in, noticing our thoughts, building our self-awareness. Muscles tighten in response to any kind of stress. See where you feel contracted and what story or trauma (from childhood, ancestral or even past lives) perpetuates that feeling of being unsafe. Can you bring compassion, love and forgiveness to those places? Do you need assistance to bring these insights to light or additional skills, self-healing approaches or catalytic intervention to help you shift and release via therapy, EFT/Tapping, reiki/energy work, flower essences, communing with nature or your spirit guides, talking with a best friend, or engaging your body/mind in art, music, movement or writing?


“Authentic healing is almost always accompanied by change and growth of consciousness,” Dr. Larry Malerba, Green Medicine


The act of facing, understanding, reframing and reintegrating these charged parts of our his/herstory allows us to hold our increasing complexity with ease, perhaps even unattachment! Our vibration raises and our consciousness of ourselves and the world around us transforms, and expands with compassion and loving kindness.

I’ve been called to serve more people, not only through one-on-one sessions and the C+E=Transformation 6 month Program, but also through creating and distributing the divinely inspired Bituin flower essence/gem elixir blends, teaching White Light and Karuna Reiki® and offering the new series Developing Your Inner Knowing Workshops. These Workshops offer a glimpse into the powerful root cause healing system that I developed over my 9 years in practice, distilled into an accessible self-healing approach based on Muscle Testing.

With all these powerful Tools of Enlightened Living, you can welcome discomfort as an invitation to transform and expand, as an opportunity to do the work that not only heals you but shifts and heals the world around you.

I look forward to seeing you in back in the office, or at a workshop! And mahalo nui for spreading the word about Bituin Elixirs and Dr. Chris Lipat’s unique Mind-Body Energy Medicine practice in Honolulu!


Makapagpapabuti is the expression of the individual giving gratitude to everything in existence...When there is complete understanding and respect of one's relationsihp with others, nature, and everything in existence, one achieves mastery of mind, emotion and body.
