Cristina Dam, the spiritual guru and owner of Liberate Hollywood and Liberate Emporium, the two largest holistic centers in Los Angeles, is truly leading the charge when it comes to holistic medicine and techniques. Dam, an expert healer, motivator, and licensed hypnotherapist offers everything from breath-work to Reiki and card reading to bring mind and body into spiritual alignment. With face-to-face readings and workshops not being an option right now, Dam is offering remote sessions and live stream meditations, news that will definitely put notable names such as Adam Sandler, Hale Berry, Moby, Diplo and others among her celebrity clientele at ease. “Other than the person’s perspective. It’s really no different,” Cristina states “Everything is energy and we can tap into that energy anywhere in the world regardless of the environment.” Cristina explains that half the session is essentially therapy, which can be done remotely and the other half (the hypnosis, meditation, etc.) can be remedied with earbuds.
“I know that this time is viewed as a tragedy for a lot of people but within every tragedy is a beautiful gift,” Cristina says; a statement that encompasses the times we are living in perfectly. “I think this thing that’s going on is giving people the time to reflect, and they’re noticing they don’t have to live on as much, they can start to make their own food and they’re realizing what’s important in terms of relationships and their health.” She calmly states that people will get better mentally, physically, and spiritually; reevaluating their value systems and making massive changes in their lives. People will think about what’s really important; saving more money and investing a little bit more on activities and spending time with their friends and family. “People are going through an artificial breakup with their lives and realizing where they don’t give a damn and what matters,” Dam says, “People are realizing what they miss and thus, what they don’t.”
“One of the biggest things is shifting perspective. How you see things, what you experience, the environment, and life is what causes emotion,” Cristina says as she began speaking on tips to help us deal with this fundamental shift in our everyday lives. The spiritual guru’s first piece of advice is that we should start our day with positivity as it will create a snowball effect. This can be through reminding yourself of a couple of things that you are grateful for every morning, some exercise, or yoga; simply make it a routine to feel good and centered. “Even though nothing is predictable, if we can take out a few of the variables and have a calm space we get a little bit more comfortable.”
Expansion and Conscious Media
Now, Cristina is working on expanding LIberate’s online presence; whether it’s through her YouTube channel or her podcast entitled Liberate The Podcast, where Dam and the other spiritual practitioners at Liberate offer information on some of the services offered, talks with some of the top names in the holistic and spiritual world and free guided meditations and therapy sessions. “I just love helping people!” The spiritual guru exclaims, “I feel like I’ve lived ten lives in that I’ve done so many different things and I’m fortunate enough to have learned so many lessons; I love passing those lessons and messages on.”
Cristina is also an accomplished animator and is currently working on a fun feature film with a positive message about animals in a wildlife preserve along the lines of a Dreamworks or Pixar production, stating, “it’ll be like Madagascar meet The Matrix.” liberateemporium.com liberatehollywood.com
