...quiet the voice inside your head and help fill you with a deep trust and confidence in your own path and intuition
Prior to my conversation with Christina, I was going through career and relationship issues that had me struggling to feel any semblance of self-love or sense of direction in what to do. And my inner voice wouldn't shut up! Trying to meditate or even sleep was damn near impossible with that voice haunting me at all hours.
After the conversation with Christina, I honestly can not describe what she did or even what happened.
All I can say is that it felt like my inner voice that wouldn't stop telling me what was wrong, what I needed to do, how bad I was feeling, and how everything's falling apart suddenly chilled the f*** out. It's as if he just needed someone to hear him out and love him a little.
From there, that emotional emptiness was then filled in with gobs of awesome sauce (technical term). It's like that feeling you get after washing off layers of sweat and dirt on your body to then put on crisp new clothes. You feel fresh and like a baller. You feel like everything is alright.
Will this make sense with anything you've done or heard before? Most likely not.
Will this help quiet the voice inside your head and help fill you with a deep trust and confidence in your own path and intuition? Yes. Hell yes.

...helped me work through and integrate some deep shiftsI can’t stop talking about my amazing breakthrough session with Christina! She helped me work through and integrate some deep shifts that have been coming up for me in the last few months. We all work hard on our mindset and what we have to achieve – but being truly authentic requires that you’ve not only worked these things out in your head, but integrated them properly into your life. And that’s where Christina and her deep work on being authentic and living from your quirky centre is perfect. You NEED this!

...Her discernment is invaluableWhen I first launched my business, I learned about Christina and I’m glad I did. Over the course of 6 months, her insights have been highly influential in increasing our contract rates by 1000%. Looking back, it’s not surprising given the insights she shared during a private interview with a multi-millionaire. Her discernment is invaluable no matter what level of business you’re at.
Given that the average startup failure rate within the first year is 25%, I’m thankful to have had Christina as an adviser. She weighs every statement, question and phrase with a heavy respect before providing her most honest answer. No matter the person, I make it known my desire for clear feedback and she delivers.
To anyone considering working with her, I would give them one caution: don’t hold back, because she won’t. Like a kid that recognizes the wisdom of their parents’ advice only after they’ve grown up, you’ll be glad you did.

...an uncanny ability to touch your issues, but not intrude without invitationA session with Christina is something to be cherished. She has an amazing way of making you comfortable and at ease. She has an uncanny ability to touch your issues, but not intrude without invitation. I would absolutely recommend a session. You don't know what you don't know.
The sessions are energizing. They helped me uncover pent up feelings / emotions and allowed me to not have them be as distracting. After working with Christina, I am more in touch with my own "experience" as I'm going through my daily routines.

...made my heart singI absolutely love working with Christina. When we collaborated we had the best time and created such a beautiful expression of who we are and why we are here that it made my heart sing. Her openness to the truth of who we are and her ability to listen deeply is extraordinary and that makes her an excellent coach and healer. When I met her I fell in love, and I’m still in love! If you can experience her, I highly recommend it.

...clearly reflecting your own self back to you in ways you couldn't imagine were possible.
Every experience I've had with Christina has been authentic, real and beautiful. She brings a unique and extraordinary presence to every interaction. Fierce joy and deep wisdom. Real honesty and uncanny perception (like, seriously uncanny).
Christina embodies the best parts of what we all were as children; a deep intuitive sense of how people work without the filters and baggage that life brings to us as adults, a sense of play in the moment, a realness and honesty that we learn to hide as we get older. Combined with her business background, life experiences and natural intuitive gifts, she listens and understands, clearly reflecting your own self back to you in ways you couldn't imagine were possible.
Her gift is to lead you to find the key you already have to the doors in your mind and heart that open to your greatest potential. Working with Christina will be an adventure in self-discovery and one you'll be glad you took.

...feel completely recharged about my businessThe moment of clarity knowing what I was really seeking, which was goal posts, and knowing the future was feeling really murky was the biggest outcome I got out of the experience. I have a tremendous amount of business clarity and re-focus and feel completely recharged about my business.
The day we met up, I was feeling so depressed, and I came out feeling lifted and whole and happy and loved and supported with a renewed faith in myself and my abilities. I’d recommend a session, yes.
Christina also helped me identify what are some of the creative blocks that I bring into any environment, and I uncovered some of my blocks that held me back. I appreciate Christina for that!

...inner peace and a never-ending feeling of calmnessAfter my first guided meditation with Christina, I realized that my life is still the same yet how I felt about it has completely changed because now I focus on the present moment. Christina helped me become aware of today, right now, right at this moment and I became more peaceful and centered as a result. The stress and fear I brought into our session melted away because I realized that I was creating the fears in my own head and I became more aware of their source, what my fear was trying to tell me and how to identify the type of fear it was. It was through working with Christina that I gained a different perspective of the thoughts that were going on in my mind more clearly and I was able to bridge my mind with my body. I gained inner peace and a never-ending feeling of calmness after our sessions. It’s the very same rejuvenation I feel after my yoga sessions except I get to untangle my thoughts.
I am more in touch with my emotions and I pay attention to them more because of my sessions with Christina. I have become more okay with how I feel instead of telling myself that it’s not right and suppressing my feelings. This also affects my relationships with people because I am able to have more empathy for others and as a result I have become a kinder person. The critic in my mind has slowed down and I also am able to breathe through the more difficult emotions that I experience like anger, frustration, and jealously to let them go on their way. I am working on being more kind to myself and to be more compassionate for others. My sessions with Christina have enriched my life with emotions that I would have otherwise ignored and been afraid of because I did not know how to handle them. But by working with her, I learned that emotions are an asset that can help me be more alive and live a more meaningful life.
The sessions bring clarity of what’s going on in your mind and at the same time it widens your perspectives and gives you a big picture view of yourself and your life.

...more comfortable sharing my true experiences and feelings.Beforehand, I felt a little uncomfortable being exposed to someone that I really don’t know. Because it was truly a safe place to be guided to that cave of questions, the breakthrough was the idea that in a short call I was able to find a lot of the answers to questions by myself, Christina guided and I followed. Now I feel cracked wide open and the exposure allows for me to feel fully and to lean into those feelings. I am more comfortable sharing my true experiences and feelings. I loved our session and have mad love for you, Christina.

A few words about intuitive oracle card readings:
...a brilliant gift of helping people find clarity within confusion.My tangle of thoughts felt like a thick, dark forest, and I felt lost. I was afraid to get too close to my own difficult feelings, and this was causing a lot of confusion and blocks in my life. Talking to Christina was like having a guide leading me into my own internal landscape: she took my hand and gently led me into the forest. Together, we looked around at what was there, and created a pathway out. It was a gift to be witnessed and accompanied on this journey.
She is so patient. I have never felt judged for what I share. I feel witnessed, held, and guided.
After our sessions, I felt so much more clear. I was able to write an important letter to identify my feelings and express them. Even months later, the clarity I discovered through this process is guiding me in my intentions and actions.
I would absolutely recommend a session with Christina. She has a brilliant gift of helping people find clarity within confusion. She is a great listener, and embodies a rare blend of gentleness, compassion, and directness.

...voice what you really want in life instead of just surviving.I didn’t have many hesitations until Christina started asking me questions that I didn’t really want to answer to a stranger. I did answer in all honesty because I realized that if I am not honest with myself, I’ll never grow in ways which I want to grow. It was very hard to answer at first, but I’m glad I did.
The most exciting moment was realizing (and Christina led me there but didn’t push any agenda which is why it’s so cool) that doing the same thing again isn’t going to make me any happier.
I have been trying to escape from corporate life for ages. And as she has seen, ‘what you want you have to create.’ I’m taking that to heart and going to be focusing on doing the things that are most important for me in life – music and writing. When I mentioned to a friend at work about the recommendation for finding an accountability partner, she volunteered! Beyond that, another friend is putting together a music collective in the near future and wants me to be a part of that too. It really shows you that so many things are available to you if you voice what you really want in life instead of just surviving.
I want to improve and as I said before, thrive. I realize it’s what you bring to it, but people need a little push sometimes. And confronting things as they actually are is hard to do on one’s own the vast majority of the time. Doing this session and answering Christina’s few well-pointed questions was the perfect thing to get me started, and my friends are all behind me and agree. I feel really great. THANK YOU!

...I already know I’m taking more action as a direct result of working with Christina.
Thanks to an amazing coaching session with Christina Salerno, I now see doubts, fears, and frustrations not as something holding me back, but as questions to be answered. Questions are not scary. Questions simply are there waiting to be picked out and answered. I can choose when, where, and how to answer those questions. Now, I feel confident in picking a path with questions that are most appealing to me and helps me build the lifestyle I want.
Within 24 hours, I’ve immediately gotten results. Here’s a couple of examples:
I received a notification about an issue with my business. I guarantee that before our session I would have freaked out and put off calling them. I’ll admit, I did feel a touch of anxiety and a spike of adrenaline, thinking, “Oh no! What’s wrong?” Then, I quickly came out of it (within minutes) and dialed the number they listed to address the situation. Turns out there was nothing wrong and that they had sent the notice by mistake.
Also, I started a task of following up with people as a way to kickstart my business. Within 30 minutes of starting the task, I created the email template and emailed 5 out of my list of 30+. This is something I’ve been putting off for weeks, and with some of these people nearly 2 full months. I already know I’m taking more action as a direct result of working with Christina.
I look forward to working with her again in the future.

...helped me see the world and our human experience from a different perspective
Helping people in our world see the beauty in every unique soul while fostering a sense of community for those who feel excluded, different or on the “fringe” of society — no small tasks…. VERY important work and no one better to lead this charge than Christina Salerno.
Christina is an amazing visionary who also happens to have an extremely kind heart. She loves her “quirky people” and has always helped me see the world and our human experience from a different perspective — a perspective that usually calls me to a bigger grander view of our potential as more loving and kind humans.
Simply put - I am grateful to have her friendship, perspective and authentic energy in my life. Christina Salerno is a difference-maker and she is an inspiration to everyone who has the opportunity to meet and experience this incredible woman!

...I knew I needed to make a change, a big one, but I was stuck and didn't know how to start.I was an American Psycho. No, not really, but I certainly felt that way. I was living a life completely based upon things like "societal expectations" and "default patterns." There was a small flicker of a light inside me, a calling back to who I really am...an artist. But it was so quiet, and often I doubted it was even there at all. There was however a longstanding cast of demanding voices who were constantly projecting their own wants onto me. I knew I needed to make a change, a big one, but I was stuck and didn't know how to start. That's where my conversation with Christina came in, she has been an important guide on my journey to a life based around freedom and creativity. (My 2 biggest values!) Now back to these voices... I couldn't even speak about what I truly wanted without addressing these first. And these were deeply held emotional fears and insecurities! Things like... if I do this... what will people think of me? And what if I actually succeed at this, then what? Christina invited me to go inside myself, to meet these voices face to face, to say hello and give them a hug. She held the space for me to be brave and let these old stories go. She did this through conversation, laughter, and energy work and as each anxiety released my inner light started to grow stronger. Now here I am several months later writing comic books full time and instigating all manner of beautiful nonsense into the world. Friend, does this make sense to you? Do you feel like you may be living a life stuck in default? Do feel an impulse for something more no matter how small? If you do, please please please, work with Christina. You won't regret it, and you absolutely deserve it, heck, the rest of us in the weirdo world are counting on you because it's not really a party until you join in.

...a sense of joy and playfulnessChristina Salerno is a gifted woman. She truly listens when her clients speak and makes remarkable observations from their words. Her insights are always thoughtful and illuminating. Best of all, she infuses her sessions with a sense of joy and playfulness. She might give you a book to read or an exercise to try. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her; she's truly one of a kind!

...intuitive, warm, kind, & thoughtfulChristina Salerno created an amazing space for me to engage with important questions that really helped flesh out new ways to give myself more fully to the most important relationships in my life. Christina’s intuitive, warm, kind, & thoughtful way of being creates an environment for coaching and growth that is truly special. I can’t wait to meet with her again.

...wonderful, quirky, empowering energyChristina is a bundle of wonderful, quirky, empowering energy. Every time I talk to her, I feel like a stronger, more capable person and gain more ideas than I know what to do with. This is in part thanks to her refreshing attitude and her always useful advice. Everyone should talk to Christina, but most especially anyone looking to find that thing that makes them special and learn how to use it to take the world by storm!
