Welcome to Relax and Feel Radiant
which Naturally Birthed out of
Unlock The Healer Within
when Christina Nienaber-Roberts, MSc, Registered Natural Health Practitioner with Holistic Massage, Certified Energy Worker (Reiki, with Therapeutic Touch and Healing Touch), Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher, Trained Hospice Volunteer and Sacred Movement Originator and Specialist was moved to take DONA International Birth Doula training.
That was when Christina realized
that in all her work she was actually being a ‘birth doula’
to whoever she was facilitating in private consultations or during programmes such as classes, workshops, retreats or inspirational talks – whether they were be birthing couples, people rebirthing themselves to a higher vibration, birthing out of life (dying) or birthing through their grief into Love and Inner Peace. This unique combination of Sacred Movement, Gentle Kripalu Yoga Plus, Holistic Deep Relaxation Massage, Energy Work, Sound Healing, deep listening and reflection, compassionate presence an so on as well as sharing of relevant information was ‘birth doula’ work!
If you arrived on this page, chances are
that you are experiencing a deep yearning
to birth into a more relaxed state of being, or feeling more radiant and alive. Once again – or for the first time perhaps – you may be experiencing a degree of dis-ease, a feeling of confusion or stuckness that you don’t really understand. You may have heard over and over again that all you need to ‘do’ is to “chill out”, “let go and go with the flow”, “slow down” – or “you need to meditate”. But… whatever you try does not seem to work; or seems to have any permanent effect. If this resonates, one or more of the three specialities highlighted above, Relaxing and Rebalancing (yoga, meditation, mindfulness, massage and energy work); or the Life Continuum Doula Services or Sacred Movement, may call out to you.
Although three specialities are highlighted above
there is really no separation - the boundaries are diffuse and often overlap.
Like in the rest of the universe, there is only one unifying, fluid, flow of energy through and between everything. They are just expressions of the same thing: doorways to relaxing into a state of being where we start to experience our inner radiance that has always been there, patiently waiting to be relaxed into. The more we access it, the more it becomes our natural state once again and the more we tune in to our inner wisdom that is constantly guiding us – but that we become aware of only when we tune in. Relaxing is a way of tuning in.
The three specialities may also be seen as three stages upon the journey
Into a deeper connection with our Radiant or Higher Self
A journey that is not linear. In Sacred Movement Christina becomes the doula to your Divine Self, helping you to form a direct connection with your Sacred or Radiant Self; Life Doula Continuum Services offer to people at all stages of life, from giving birth (and baby’s birthing), through various stages of rebirthing, to Death Doula Services facilitating people birthing out of life and out of grief the same support as a birthing couple would receive from a seasoned Birth Doula with many other skills and modalities in her back pocket. Relaxation and Rebalancing Services facilitates similar benefits to those who are new to the concepts shared above, those who have come to a holding stage upon their journey, or just wish to let go again after a busy period in their lives to receive a jumpstart through yoga, meditation and mindfulness practices (all part of yoga), massage, energy work, and other tools highlighted on the Consultations and Programmes pages.
Be-ing Relaxed and Feeling Radiant is what,
at a Soul level, we are all yearning for
whether we are aware of it or not
Why? In a relaxed state our body produces the healthy hormone oxytocin, which puts us in a state of Unconditional Love. Be-ing in Love all systems function optimally, we feel calm, confident and content, creative ideas and inspiration flow easily and our energy is constantly replenished. We are in the flow and operate at peak performance without the need to compete or control. We Feel Radiant – because we are in direct connection with Source. The Big Love as the San people of the Kalahari call it, which has many other names. Source/Love it is unfathomable. The only way to know the force of Source is to experience it – to feel it. To have this exquisite experience, we need to be relaxed. In this state of Love or of Be-ing we are One with our Sacred Self, in direct connection with the Divine, we are vibrationally constantly transforming to higher, purer, frequencies, constantly expanding. Becoming more of what we are – and more and more aware that we, and those we share our lives with, are Radiant vibrational Be-ings. Be-ing relaxed brings many, many other benefits, some of which will be shared on the relevant pages.
When we allow stress to accumulate in our lives by doing and trying to be in control or to fit in in order to buy acceptance or little love, we do not have this experience. Life becomes a struggle and we lose energy. Who wants that?
So we invite you to now relax for a moment
- Take a moment to detach from the screen.
- Check your body for any areas of tension.
- Sit comfortably, with a straight back if you can, both feet on the floor.
- Relax back into your chair with your hands in your lap and your palms facing up.
- Gently close your eyes
- Allowing the belly to be soft, allow the breath to become slower and longer.
- Feel the tingling in your hands.
- When you do, gently allow them to gently float up to your face.
- En-Joy their radiant warmth.
- Keep breathing – where the breath goes, energy flows!
- Keep feeling.
- When you are ready, become aware of the seat you are sitting on and the sounds in the room.
- Gently allow your eyes to flutter open…
Welcome back! You are invited to embrace this short mediation practice five times a day for only five minutes – for that has been scientifically proven to bring the most powerful and lasting results.
Relax and Feel Radiant is a Being-Based Business
based on collaboration, co-creation and celebration of who we are
and as Birth Doulas do, Christina works with her clients to create the most beneficial package for who they are as individuals, what they are experiencing in the moment, and what resonates most in that moment, drawing on all the extensive repertoire of training, tools, skills, knowledge, experience and intuitive abilities she has had the honour to acquire.
The transformational processes shared
are entirely self-empowering
They create no dependency on the facilitator or practitioner
Facilitating people in blossoming to their fullest potential is what Relax and Feel Radiant and Christina Nienaber-Roberts are all about and she does not see herself as a healer or a teacher or a guru or someone who is here to ‘fix’ anyone. Instead, she compassionately companions clients into relaxing so deeply that they start reconnecting with and communicating with and from those aspects of themselves.
In this work there is no need for stories
Being Here Now, Relaxing into the Present Moment,
is all we need to ‘do’
So, Relax and Feel Radiant is for those who feel ready to Let Go of the logical, left-brain, old paradigm experience of figuring out, fixing, doing – and struggling. It is for those who are ready to relax into the intuitive, right-brain, new paradigm experience of Be-ing present to fully feeling and allowing their moment to moment experience to unfold. This state of Be-ing allows energy blocks to vibrationally transform in the light of our awareness, so that we emerge feeling a lightness of Being are become Radiant in our experience of the Sacred Self. For, in Essence – at the energetic or vibrational level of the Sacred Self – we are already whole and healed. We have always been. We have just mistakenly believed otherwise and energetically blocked ourselves from fully experiencing that which we all are.
We are Energy Beings – Spirit. Full stop!
This awareness can be accessed in many different ways
The services offered by Relax and Feel Radiant, and many other paths, may become ways of stepping through the Heart Gate into experiencing our innate Radiant Self; our Healer/Teacher/Guru Within; and ultimately our Oneness with Source. No one path is perfect for everyone – we all have a unique energy signeature and we are all responsible for finding our own way. Our wish for you is the very best resonance or vibrational fit! This is why we have windows for like-resonant health-care professionals, natural health practitioners and other services in the Directory under Resources for you in this website.
