HI, I'M CHRISTINA MEDINA. I’m Mindset & Manifestation Coach, a Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker in NYC, Speaker, Reiki Energy Healing Practitioner & Host of the Mindset to Manifestation Podcast.
Join me for your massive dose of encouragement, mind shifts and totally possible manifestation. You didn’t end up here by accident, this was synchronicity at its finest. There’s a reason why we all move to NYC—to get a shot at making our dreams come true. The city holds some sort of cosmic energy that makes us all move faster, strive to be better and inspires us to climb even higher.
Let me tell you, life isn’t always easy breezy here in the big bad city but everyday you get another chance to rewrite your story. Think of me as your daily reminder that you are a heck of a lot more powerful than you think.
It is my mission is to provide you with tools to empower you to dream big and make it happen. We’re all unique human beings here with amazing gifts just wanting to be realized. If no one has ever told you that then you’re sooooo in the right place. Today is the day you start appreciating you!
You Didn't Come Here to Fit In
How many of you went through life just wanting to fit in? To be accepted? Did you bring that mindset into adulthood with you? See the problem with "fitting in" and being accepted is that you run the risk of never standing out--of never stepping into your true voice and finding your own unique light.
If you were like me, you were born into a life with adversity, things you had to over come, some people's journey is full of more obstacles than others BUT I'm here to tell you that it's that very situation--that life that was pre-destined to be yours, the reason you chose this life full of adversity is because you were never really meant to "fit in" anyway.
You were born to be a free thinker, separate from the pack, independent of group thinking---and so that meant that in order for you to be a good warrior of light, a warrior of the heart and your own truth, you had to go through some training to prepare you for your adult life. Which, if you were going to continue this path if discovery back to your heart--you would continue to be met with more challenges to continue to stretch you. You needed to learn as a child that you can have confidence in your heart, in your value, that you are worthy, that you deserve---but that adversity was there, keeping you from that daily affirmation, setting up a blueprint putting you on a particular trajectory (to figure this out later in life).
Accept your fate--you were born to be brilliant. You were born to shine light and succeed in life (in more ways that one) AND you were meant to inspire others along the way. To help those on their our journey.
And on your continued journey you too will find other independent thinkers, those following their heart and not their mind, you will have community and finally find your place.
M2M Riff: DO THIS Before You Start Your Up Level
Are you feeling overwhelmed by all of the things you should be doing, classes you should sign up for, that you should start your side hustle, that you should workout more??? It's the new me--this time is different. IF ONLY I CAN JUST DO MORE. I'm not doing enough. I need to take advantage of this time! I'm losing time. I'm getting behind. It's too much for me. I'm never going to be the person I know I should be. Why do I even start these things???? I'm wasting my money.
OK I AM NOT TELLING YOU TO FEEL THIS WAY--or that you should. I've been speaking to a lot of people and they are over whelmed by all the "shoulds" of life and it gets so overwhelming that they often get this paralyzed feeling--so they don't even start.
There is a reason why you feel this way. This anxiety is coming from a place within that you have been neglecting; HINT: it's YOU. Before you can start this next chapter, up-level phase you have to lay the foundation of self love--like true self love.
This riff came out while sitting on my couch and having these same overwhelming feelings about all the things I should do. I'm here with you babe and I know what you're going through.
Sending you so much love from NYC.
You Are So F*ing Deserving. Don't Let Anyone Tell You Otherwise
My apologies, the story of the Two Wolves is actually a Cherokee teaching. You can find the story here: https://urbanbalance.com/the-story-of-two-wolves/
As for the message of the podcast; all I can say to you, dear listener, is that you must keep it simple. YOU ARE DESERVING of all the things you want to bring into your life. There is so much abundance already around you. Connect with that and allow yourself to appreciate that, because THAT is going to open you up for more.
And no, this isn't just another gratitude podcast.
PS Join me for 90 days of 8MINS2INNERPEACE on IGTV.

M2M Riffs: Full Moon Tonight: So what does that mean to you?
Tonight is all about inward reflection and release. What metaphorical load have you been carrying around? What have you been trying to control but was really not even close to being within your control?
A special M2M Rant just for you, just for tonight's full moon in Libra.
Enjoy! 😉 Sending you so much love from NYC.
PS Join me tomorrow morning for a new episode of 8MINSTOINNERPEACE on IGTV.
Come back everyday for a new episode:
NYC Love 4 Ever
Today's episode is about connection in whatever form that is, to each other in a time of isolation. We can look at life right now through the lens (or mindset), that all is here to advance us, to show us a new way, to embrace the road less traveled---or we can look thought the lens of fear, worry dwelling in the uncertainty.
We're in a global crisis, we cannot deny this, but at this very same moment we are being presented with an opportunity to advance--in our own self improvement, our connection to higher self, to each other, to building communities in ways we never thought possible.
Life, the Universe, God--is calling to us to reflect inward--to shut off Netflix for a second and dive in. How can we allow this stretch--this discomfort, to advance us? And how can we serve others in the process?
Thank you for being here with my guys. No more than ever, I appreciate you being here on this journey with me.
Sending you so very much love from NYC.
PS Be sure to tune in everyday for 8MINS2INNERPEACE here:
A little something I'm doing on IGTV for the next 90 days to connect us and begin our day in grattitude. New episodes every morning at 8am EST--you can replay any and all anytime ;)
A World Where Everyone is Queen: The Extinction of the Mean Girl
Yes there is a significant role that Mean Girls play in your life and until you understand the value of this, you will continue to be controlled by these characters.
To this day, we continue to exist in two simultaneous worlds; one where the mean girls continue to rule, manipulate and try to control us (Can you believe this is 2020 and we're still letting this happen???)
...and the other world, where women understand that real strength is in honoring each other and working together. When we operate form this mindset, and only when we embrace this, we will be able to achieve things way beyond what we could do on our own.
I do believe that someday the Mean Girl will be a thing of the past, a behavior no longer accepted in our culture, just like the #MeToo movement, we will begin to see the #AntiMeanGirlMovement start spread. Someday we will talk about the old days of lower thinking amongst women and the radical shift in equality that occurred once they stopped fighting each other and started working together.
With that I say Happy International Women's Day my beautiful Queens.
Today we break apart the crown for all to share.
Sending you so much love from NYC!
