491 Kristi Holt:
The Coronavirus crisis is having a big impact on many people’s mental and emotional health triggering fears, anxieties and in many cases unresolved traumas and subconsciously driven behaviors. If you find yourself crawling the walls or slipping back into old unhelpful ways, listen on…
I’m Melinda Wittstock and today on Wings of Inspired Business we meet an inspiring entrepreneur and emotional healer who has an intriguing new technology to help us become aware of our underlying emotions and shift them.
Kristi Holt says she’s driven by the conviction that each one of us has the potential for greatness …that we all have unlimited abilities … when we can release the blocks, limiting beliefs, and emotional triggers that hold us back.
A serial entrepreneur and emotional healer, Kristi says she sees people in their true essence, their highest vibration.
Now, in the middle of the Coronavirus Pandemic, she’s taking her groundbreaking technology to market. It’s called Vibeonix and it uses the vibration of your voice to give biofeedback on your emotional and mental wellbeing.
Today we’re going to talk about the mental health crisis Coronavirus is triggering, what it means now for entrepreneurs, and what it takes to launch a business in the middle of an economic crisis.
Kristi Holt began her personal practice over 10 years ago,
connecting body, mind, and spirit through her understanding of vibration, frequency, and energy. She’s started over 10 companies over the years, had 6 successful exits and maintains ownership in a variety of companies including CBD Manufacturing, Finance, and Social Impact.
She also hosts and teaches a variety of webinars, progressive workshops, retreats, licensing/certifications, and more, and says, apart from entrepreneurship, her greatest reward and passion is her husband of 13 years and 4 beautiful children. She is also the co-founder of Nugent Magazine, an up and coming magazine telling “good news” in the community growing nationally.
We’re going to talk about why you have a choice right now during Coronavirus – we can use this time to break down to break through.
Let’s put on our wings with the inspiring Kristi Holt.
Melinda Wittstock: Kirsti, welcome to Wings.
Kristi Holt: Hi, Melinda. Thank you so much. It’s nice to be here.
Melinda Wittstock: It’s great for you to be here too because Vibeonix is a business of our time. I can see so many ways in which it’ll be very, very helpful in this current condition that we’re living in with the coronavirus. You’re also in launch mode though right now. What’s it like launching in a pandemic?
Kristi Holt: Well, there’s two sides of that coin. I think. Number one is we thought we were launching to a world that we had studied and that we really were excited about and then it flipped just suddenly, so quickly, into a world that we didn’t understand and know.
Kristi Holt: But what we have seen is so many people need what we offer even more now than ever. So it’s been a blessing because we can see how we can be truly helpful and a hurry up and transition as well.
Kristi Holt: But we’re really excited where we’re positioned because we’re seeing so many reaching out and asking for emotional and mental awareness, especially when they’re not aware of how to respond to what the world’s bringing them today. So I think a lot of people have questions and I’m so grateful that we can be an answer or at least help guide them to their own inner answers through our tool.
Melinda Wittstock: Yeah, it’s so interesting what I’ve observed, people who came into this crisis with some level of, I don’t know, spiritual growth, where they’d done personal development work, are handling it a lot better because at least they have the tools and a discipline already around that.
Melinda Wittstock: But for the vast majority of people who were not on that track, this is a massive wake up call. And it’s like there’s a choice. You can fall into old patterns, become an alcoholic, I don’t know, that thing. Or you can really use this time to double down and get into alignment and whatnot.
Melinda Wittstock: How do you see this playing out? Are we going to have a massive mental health crisis on our hands?
Kristi Holt: Well, I think the short answer, yes, because I think crisis brings breakdown to breakthrough. I always believe in that concept, that there’s usually breakdowns for people to break through and I think this is a widespread breakdown. We’re breaking down belief systems. We’re breaking down ideas. It has to happen. You’re forced into it.
Kristi Holt: You said a word that I will say is one of my favorite words and you said choice. I think what is the biggest thing that you have to learn in a crisis is that you have a choice. And I think in our world society teaches us that we’re a victim to circumstance and that we don’t have choice. And I think that’s what people are waking up to. That I have a choice in how I feel. I may not have a choice in the circumstances around me, we don’t have a choice that restaurants are shutting down, or businesses can’t go to work, or our kids are home from school. Those are choices that we don’t have. But what we do have is a choice in how we show up and respond to that circumstance.
Kristi Holt: And so, for our tool, we think about awareness and self-awareness. I firmly believe, that through self-awareness lies the powerful decision of choice. And through choice we can have our power and through choice that is where we have our internal power and peace.
Kristi Holt: So I hope through this pandemic that people really understand and begin to learn to break down those old belief systems that they’re a victim and really pick up where they can start to choose for themselves how they show up.
Melinda Wittstock: That’s so powerfully said. I think there’s a certain moment, sorry, I’m going to say that again. There’s a certain moment in personal growth where you realize, or you become an observer of yourself and your feelings, and when you deploy curiosity. When you’re triggered by something, how interesting, why am I feeling this right now? I don’t actually have to feel this. Whatever it is, I can let it go.
Melinda Wittstock: And it sounds so simple. In my own personal growth journey it wasn’t simple to arrive there, but I did arrive there and I find that now whenever I’m triggered, which is less and less and less, in fact, quite rarely now, but when I am, I see it as a positive opportunity to let go of something that doesn’t serve anymore.
Kristi Holt: Well, I think you’ve obviously done a lot of interpersonal work and you said some things that we talk about all the time, and in fact, when somebody uses our assessment to gain awareness to self, the first thing that I think people begin to learn is to become an observer of their emotions and feelings and their thought processes versus it being who they are.
Kristi Holt: So what we tend to talk about we’re trying to normalize the conversation around emotional and mental wellbeing, and so it can become a conversation that there’s no shame and guilty in. 20, 30 years ago, even 10 years ago, even some people still today, they’re like, if I just think positive, if I just think positive. What we’re learning is if you don’t feel positivity, it doesn’t truly shift. So your emotions have to be at the surface of your awareness to begin to shift your reality and begin to feel something different.
Kristi Holt: So in order to do that, you’ve got to detach from your idea of shame and guilt and anger and loneliness and sadness and become the observer of it, learn to work through the emotion, and shift into a higher vibration.
Kristi Holt: So when you talk about becoming the observer, it is so powerful to watch your emotions, to literally look at them and observe them, learn a new process to actually label them and name them. That is so incredibly powerful because once you can name it, you can move it through your body and your nervous system and that you’re still holding onto. But without being able to identify it, it really just sits and suppresses and actually breaks you down and lowers your mood, lowers your energy, and starts causing disease in your body.
Kristi Holt: So I think through these times when we get triggered and we feel like we don’t have choice, if we can get into a place where we observe ourselves, look at the emotion and name it, and then just have the awareness to say, okay, I can see anger inside of me, I can feel the anger is present. How can I express this anger in a healthy way? Just that little thought process and then move into that feeling process. The freedom that people can really experience by becoming the observer. So that’s our number one goal, is become the observer to get you to choice.
Melinda Wittstock: I think when we feel our feelings and accept them and also accept that they are not us, they are a moment in time, it’s actually really empowering.
Melinda Wittstock: There was something else though that you said that I want to pick up on, which is dis-ease. Right now, in the middle of a pandemic, we all need to boost our immune systems and if we have all these old trapped energies and fears and anxieties and all those things playing on our bodies, it depresses our immune system. So this is actually really important for our health.
Kristi Holt: Right. It absolutely is. When we suppress our emotion, it stores in the body and the nervous system starts to shut down. This is not just, I think this happens, science is proving that your thoughts have an energy and frequency. Your feelings have a frequency and energy. And when stored in the body, it starts to stop the energy flow in your body, which is your nervous system.
Kristi Holt: But knowing this, again, therein lies our power. So for example, when we have suppressed or resistant energy, which is attached to an emotion of lonely, let’s say, and this keeps showing up over and over again, and we have this awareness, lonely is present in my vibration. How I love thinking through this is if I am a vibrational being and every thought, feeling, and action has an emotion, or excuse me, a vibration to it, how can I move that vibration through me?
Kristi Holt: That is one of those cool things that you, again, become the observer and start separating who you are from what you are feeling and move through it.
Kristi Holt: So when you talk about the immune system, we can keep resisting emotion or we can welcome it and learn to flow through it. And I think that’s the biggest thing when we think about our health, to keep moving through things rather than resisting or holding them or hiding from ourselves.
Melinda Wittstock: Well, this is vital too when building a business and I want to transition a little bit. I have so many questions I want to ask you and geek out about Vibeonix and how it works and all of that. We’re going to get there in a minute. But I am curious about how feelings play out and these subconscious icebergs, I like to call them, all these things, play out in the role of a CEO or a founder of a company, especially at a time like this where a lot of people are getting triggered. There’s so much uncertainty. There’s a sense perhaps of scarcity if you’re trying to meet payroll or trying to figure out how to pivot your business so you actually have revenue coming in, or all these kinds of things. So there’s a lot of triggering going on.
Melinda Wittstock: Entrepreneurs are probably better than most at dealing with things they can’t control because entrepreneurship is the best therapy in that sense. We have to grow personally to be able to grow our businesses. How do you think this plays out and what’s the best approach for a female founder right now, dealing with all of this? Because there may be things you thought you dealt with that are now representing.
Kristi Holt: I love that you asked this question and being a CEO of multiple different industries at multiple times in my life, I think I really connect to a CEO’s responsibility. And one thing that you mentioned made me think, you really can’t give what you don’t have. And we have so many leaders that are trying to lead, but if they don’t have that self-awareness about where they’re at… You can’t give clarity if you’re not getting clarity for yourself. You can’t give, I’m going to say love, and happiness, and hope, if you don’t really truly align with it. You can say it all day long, but if people can’t feel it from you, it’s just words.
Kristi Holt: So for me, if I was especially a woman entrepreneur today in this crisis, I would give myself permission to be authentic in where I am at, so then I can truly help others through that. I think we have to ask each other, how are you feeling? So many things we’ve been asking is, well, what do you think about this? What do you think about this? Well, that thinking gets us into habit of task and then we just start getting lost in these habits of tasks, where we are emotional beings and if we could recognize that there is feelings and there is emotion that we need to work through and support each other in.
Kristi Holt: One of the greatest questions that we could be asking our employees and first asking ourselves, is how do I feel about that? And I think that’s where you can really get in touch with yourself and then start having those conversations and normalizing the conversation around emotion. Because again, we are human beings trying to survive in the world or thrive in the world. So how can you shift from that surviving to thriving? First believe in it yourself and ask yourself, how do I feel about that?
Melinda Wittstock: I love that. That’s something that we can be doing with our customers right now too. Feels like an opportunity now where things are slowing down in all these different fast changing circumstances around us, it behooves us to stay very close to our customers. So I like the idea of asking them, how are you feeling right now? Because that’s going to give you the clue to in how best to serve them.
Melinda Wittstock: I think female entrepreneurs, when we leverage our intuition, it makes all the difference. And I think we’re coming into our own as business leaders right now.
Kristi Holt: I could not agree more. In fact, it’s funny, one of the things I say is intuitive business and I think as female entrepreneurs, that is one of our biggest differentiators from the masculine and the feminine in the world. I think of those that give ourselves permission to follow our intuitive guidance, we are literally changing the world, because if we can feel into where we need to be doing and where we need to be going, think of all the things we’re not spending time on.
Kristi Holt: And you also said something about asking our customers how they feel. That, in my opinion, creates an automatic place of safety. And I think feeling safe in the world today, it’s heightened everywhere you look. People want to feel safe. They want to feel like they matter. They want to feel like their feelings matter and their voice matters and they want to feel safe.
Kristi Holt: So I think those of us as leaders asking people, how are you feeling? Just creates a safe place to go to be vulnerable and to just say, I’m okay. Hey, do you want to talk through that? Can I hold space for you? Is there anything I can do to help you through that okay to feeling better or to feel good? Really just that one question, I’ve seen it shift in so many people when you just ask them how they’re feeling and again, just feeling safe and welcoming a space of feeling and normalizing that conversation.
Melinda Wittstock: So it’s time to geek out on Vibeonix, right now. I want to know all about how it works, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing it a little bit, but for folks listening right now, how would you describe it?
Kristi Holt: Well, we wanted to make it simple and have no resistance from anyone that my five-year-old, who is a child, obviously, they can’t even count very high too my people that are in their 60s and 70s that are looking for clarity. So what we have is a tool that you count to 100 on any device and it will give you an emotional and mental biofeedback results.
Kristi Holt: Now it’s a snapshot to show you vibrationally where you’re at and how it works is we measure the frequencies of your voice. So it is as easy as counting to 100. Now again, my five year old can’t count to 100, so I just have them count to 10 until it hits the time. So 10, 10 times. Sometimes they goes fast, sometimes they go slow. B.
Kristi Holt: So the process is very simple. Again, on any device you can count to 100 and get immediate results to help you understand where you currently are, from your emotions to your mental faculties and mindset, characteristics, where you’re aligned and where you’re out of alignment. Where your flow and where your resistance lies. And really guides you through an experience to better understand yourself.
Kristi Holt: And then we made it so people could literally check their vibe daily. We believe that if you start to look at how you show up in the morning, how you show up in the afternoon, how you show up on a day to day basis, how you show up in crisis. We have a place in our assessment that helps you see your stress habit. Whether you engage, disengage, or avoid. That’s very comparable to flight, fight, freeze. But we’ve found a lot of judgment on the word fight and flight. Mostly on the word fight, so we really coupled with engage, disengage, and avoid, and really what was cool, not to get into this too much, but avoid is where you’re stagnant in your energy.
Kristi Holt: So by putting in a combination of science with energy, frequency and vibration, coupling it with something that feels so personal, which is your feelings, your emotions, and your thought process, we found that we have a very innovative, exciting tool that is like nothing else out there.
Melinda Wittstock: So is it measured by the frequency that you’re-
Kristi Holt: Yes.
Melinda Wittstock: Because I can’t count the number of books that I’ve read about our vibrational energy and the difference between being, say in fear or shame, say, which is one of the lowest vibrations, all the way up through the different things up to like joy, or gratitude, or whatever. And so how does that manifest in someone’s voice? How do you actually capture that?
Kristi Holt: So this is a great question. What we do is we capture the frequencies in the voice and the frequency is what carries information when you’re talking about energy. So frequency is carried through the voice and then it goes against our algorithm and goes and maps to each emotion and thought that we’ve also mapped to a frequency.
Kristi Holt: So once those frequencies match, then we can give an overall vibration, which is why we have you count to 100. I’ll tell you a couple inside scoops of why this works the way it does. We’ve found that when people count to 100, their thoughts aren’t necessarily connected to one specific thing. So it gives a real baseline of you. You could go in and talk about your kids and you’d probably get a different vibrational reading based on that one subject, depending on where you are out with that subject that day.
Kristi Holt: Maybe you have a perception in very low and high vibration where if you talk about your finances or work it might pull out a lower vibration depending if that’s where you’re at. So by counting by to 100, we give a really good baseline to what’s happening inside. So it gives it almost a hypnotic state. How many times do you drive and all of a sudden you’re home and you don’t even know how you got home. It’s like counting to a hundred.
Kristi Holt: So it takes about 90 seconds. And the reason we do it for 90 seconds is your thoughts are bouncing and so are your emotions and that shows up in the frequency of your voice so we can really capture an overall vibration.
Melinda Wittstock: That’s amazing. So how long did it take you to work out that algorithm? It sounds very complex.
Kristi Holt: It is. And luckily it wasn’t all me by any means. We have a group of doctors that worked on this algorithm out of the UK and in Europe for over 30 years. What we were able to do is take that algorithm and give it our own expression and create our own IP around it to really have it hit home with today’s society and what people are asking and wanting to know.
Kristi Holt: So I have personally been working on this project for about the last two years, even though I think mentally and emotionally, I’ve been working on this project for about the last 40, but yeah, over the last two years we’ve been able to take the algorithm and put it in a beautiful expression into our assessment that you see today.
Melinda Wittstock: That’s wonderful. So can people track their progress, say, over time?
Kristi Holt: Yes.
Melinda Wittstock: So, you tune in every day or whatever and you can see how your vibration is changing. Can you start to correlate it, I suppose, to things that are going on in your life and you start to develop that awareness that we were talking about earlier?
Kristi Holt: Yes. That’s exactly what we intend, is for people to start seeing their own pattern. And we track the pattern. We’ll show you history screen so you can see where you were yesterday to where you are today.
Kristi Holt: And then really what we believe is the most important thing is through self-awareness, you’ll start to find your own answers. We believe that people are their best curriculum. Asking yourself how you’re feeling and why, that’s where you get into your belief systems. That’s where you get into your own thought processes and your own perceptions. Those are yours. They are nobody else’s.
Kristi Holt: So as you count and you are aware of yourself and start to see a pattern within yourself, then you can start to see how these thoughts and feelings are affecting your reality.
Melinda Wittstock: So, you said Kirsti, you’ve been working on this for 40 years. It feels like you’re not that old. So it feels like it’s your life’s work. What do you think was the spark that led you in this path in your entrepreneurial career?
Kristi Holt: Well, I went to a conference, a retreat thing, up in Canada and in fact it’s really funny, I believe in the law of attraction. I believe in the law of resonance. I feel like I’ve been in emotional vibration understanding since I was about 19 years old, when I started doing aesthetics and touching people, which was sounds weird, but that’s the first time I feel like I understood energy and could feel it.
Kristi Holt: And then I worked in the health and beauty industry for about 10 years and then I went in some other directions. This is actually the 10th company that I’ve been part of and founded. And each one I think just kept getting me closer and closer to my life’s purpose so I could really understand what I needed to do.
Kristi Holt: But for me, this started, I went up to a retreat called The Matrix and during that week they taught us to write down a goal that was so large and so outside of everything that we had thought of, that the universe would have to come into play to make it a reality. And really started understanding visualization and intention and working in with my intuition. And it changed everything and anything I did with business.
Kristi Holt: A month after, or while I was there, I came up with my own audacious goal. And in it I wrote down that I was going to start a worldwide emotional awareness company through technology. I had no idea what that meant. And 30 days later I found this algorithm and I knew that my purpose had aligned.
Kristi Holt: It just found me. I found it. And then off we went. And it has been such a ride. It’s felt such an alignment with who I am and what I believe, and I feel like finally I have a home in business that I want to do for the rest of my life.
Melinda Wittstock: Isn’t it interesting that when we look back as serial entrepreneurs in our previous companies, there was something that we were learning in those companies. Those companies were our lab.
Kristi Holt: That is so true.
Melinda Wittstock: We’re doing right now-
Kristi Holt: All the takeaways, right?
Melinda Wittstock: Right. I feel that way about the Podopolo Podcasting Network for instance, because way back in the day I did one of the first ever gamified apps in 2008, or just different things that I was doing around broadcasting, or media, or creating algorithms and artificial intelligence algorithms and machine learning algorithms around crowdsource content.
Melinda Wittstock: It’s so funny, all these different things or these different aspects of it, that when you look back, you can connect the dots, but when you’re in it, you don’t necessarily know where it’s leading. And it goes back to where we were in the conversation about intuition. And the other component of intuition is just trusting the universe has a plan for you.
Kristi Holt: Yes. One of the things that I connected recently that I just giggle, and in fact my husband and I just laughed about it, is I was in solar and we sold solar for four years. While we were selling solar, that’s where I literally learned the science of energy and frequency, which is really not where you would think someone would learn about frequency, but I realized how frequency really works, how energy and light frequency, sound frequency, and I was so passionate about solar, but there was this piece inside of me that was like, you’re so close, but this isn’t it.
Kristi Holt: But I totally geeked out over frequency and energy and understanding the mathematics and the science behind it. So when this came, it felt like the light was already on and I just could explain it in a way that I was like, how in the world do I know this? And I realized it was from my days in solar.
Kristi Holt: Isn’t that funny? It’s so different than where we’re at, yet it was one of the pivotal things I feel like I had to learn. So it was really cool. I love that. Every business you can go back and go, that’s why we did that.
Kristi Holt: I will say in entrepreneurship, when you can really tap into intuitive business, knowing when to pivot is your greatest superpower as an entrepreneur. So many people get locked into what they think it needs to be versus allowing for it to evolve into what it can be. And that has been the most painful and clear lesson over doing all the businesses I’ve been.
Kristi Holt: So when we got to this one, I can’t tell you how many times we’ve pivoted. At one point we thought we were going to be a coaching company and this would be our tool in a coaching company.
Kristi Holt: Intuitively, I was told so clearly to not be a coaching company, but to remain a tool so it could go alongside any coaching program. That was one of the most [crosstalk 00:28:05].
Melinda Wittstock: So much more scalable.
Kristi Holt: Oh yeah. And so many more people can use it because you’re not tapped into your way of doing things. And if I wasn’t open and listening to my intuition, I would’ve ignored that prompt because that was not where we were. We had a whole coaching program that we’d invested so much time and dollars into. And when I was told that in… I meditate, that’s how I connect to my intuition often.
Melinda Wittstock: Yeah, me too.
Kristi Holt: And I was literally told in my meditation, you’re a tool, and I was like, oh really, that’s funny. But no, it’s a tool. Vibeonix is a tool and not a coaching. And I was like, oh man. And I battled it for probably four or five days before I went to our team. But by the time I went to our team, I was like, this isn’t it.
Kristi Holt: And we had spent so much time and money down that direction. So it was a huge lesson for me to hear and receive guidance that’s so much bigger than anything that I could see with my own eyes, hear with my own ears, speak out of my own mouth, to really listen to something beyond me.
Melinda Wittstock: So true. this is how Podopolo has come about, is almost entirely in that inspired way. I think what happens when we’re not connected to that and our left brain and willfulness and ego, which is necessarily limited, presents us only with the solutions we can see, and they’re inherently limited. They’re limited by our experience our networks, how curious or not we are, and we get very invested. That ego part of us gets very invested in what we’ve already done. The sunk costs we’ve put in. It gets really, really difficult to change. And a lot of people don’t like change. But to succeed in business change is inevitable.
Melinda Wittstock: And I remember a long time ago, I was, well actually it wasn’t that long ago, but I was a satellite coach for Tony Hsieh, the founder of Zappos. And I would hop on the phone with volunteer mentoring sessions, with all these tech entrepreneurs in downtown Las Vegas, because he’d put a lot of money into revitalizing that part of Vegas.
Melinda Wittstock: And so, I’d hop on the call and I’d say, “Hey, so what can I help you with?” And they’d go on and on and on about their product, what their product did, what their app did, the functionality, how it worked, all these things. And I’d say, “Hey, that’s great. So how can I help you?” And they’d go on again, and anyway, and it does this and it does that and it does this and it does that. It was all features, features, features, and finally the calls beginning to come to an end and I’d finally say, “So who are your customers?” And they’re like, long silence.
Melinda Wittstock: They had basically built something without, at any time, connecting with potential customers. So building solutions to problems that don’t exist, for instance. So it’s not only about our intuition, it’s being at an early enough stage really co-creating I think with our customers, because they’re going to show us the way. But it’s tricky because we can get so invested. We’re natural evangelists for our thing.
Kristi Holt: Well, we talked earlier about drinking our own Kool-Aid. Like, everyone wants this, and here we are. Maybe they do, maybe they don’t. If you don’t ask that early on, who are you building it for, yourself?
Melinda Wittstock: I know. I spent a lot of time on Podopolo before I even chose to do it. And it really came out of this podcast because I started this podcast, I was running a completely different company, a social analytics company, and I just started doing this because it was a passion project and I started to understand all these problems and structural problems with the podcasting industry.
Melinda Wittstock: So, I’d ask people, “Why can’t you do this?” Or why is this, why is that? There was a lot I knew as a former media executive and all of that as well, so I had a lot of knowledge in the industry also. But I was just stunned that 85% of podcasters weren’t making money. They didn’t have the any way to get the data. They didn’t really, in a lot of cases, even though they owned their content, they didn’t really own their own audience. There were a whole bunch of structural problems that were preventing them from making money. And I looked around, I was like, somebody has got to be solving this and nobody was.
Kristi Holt: I love what you’ve done. It’s so meaningful. In fact, you said something that really I think is so powerful is passion. You said, this was my passion, but that was my business. Did I hear that right? [crosstalk 00:00:33:03].
Melinda Wittstock: Yeah. That’s why I left that business behind. It was a good working business, but it wasn’t really lighting my heart on fire and it wasn’t lighting the world on fire either. I’ve built two different kinds of businesses. The ones that are in alignment with me, with the universe, they’re in alignment. And those ones manifest and they present all kinds of synchronicities, like the right person or the right time, those divine downloads you’re talking about in your meditation. I get those too. But if I’m doing a business that’s not aligned, it’s like, oh my goodness, trudging up a mountain pushing a boulder. It’s hard. It’s hard work and it’s not fun.
Kristi Holt: So Melinda, I love that you’re using the word alignment because that’s actually one of our screens that we have in Vibeonix. If you don’t mind, I want to just be clear on alignment because I love this topic. In my opinion, alignment is thoughts, feelings and actions. Is that how you see alignment?
Melinda Wittstock: I do. I think that is true. And I also see alignment in the sense of what is our true purpose, here, right now, wearing our “earth suit” at this particular moment in time, what are our true talents, what are we really here to do on a soul purpose? For me, there’s a spiritual element to it as well. But I like your definition too. Makes a lot of sense.
Kristi Holt: Well, to me, I would encompass I’ve learned to use my language to stay agnostic, but to me feelings is tapping into that sixth sense of your soul. That is where spirituality lies. That’s where your soul lies. Your feelings are your inner guidance system. That’s not part of the body. It’s not part of the mind. It is your feelings and that is connected to your soul.
Kristi Holt: So I 100% agree. That’s why I love when you said that you’re in your passion. Passion is a feeling. And passion is a feeling that’s connected to your purpose. So I just, that’s how I think through things. And I loved hearing your definition and couldn’t agree more, actually.
Melinda Wittstock: I love it. So what’s next for you? Where are you at in the launch process, given that, yes, we established at the beginning of the interview, you’re launching a business during a pandemic. So what’s that like? What’s the practical step? How are you getting out in front of people? What’s next? What are some of the challenges? Et cetera, et cetera.
Kristi Holt: Thank you for asking. What I know is there are so many people that have a passion to helping others and there’s so many thought leaders, there are so many coaches, therapists, people who really are wanting to invest in keeping and helping people have emotional and mental safetiness through this. So our goal is to find them and help give them a tool that they can do to get there quicker, or to get there more efficiently, or to help their clients see their vibration versus just talk through it and not really ever know.
Kristi Holt: So our goal is to align ourselves with people who are helping people and utilize our tool in their current practice. We also designed it so you could have a self-experience where you could do it by yourself and start to really understand yourself. So you can go to Vibeonix.com and we have a subscription available for people to check their vibe for under $1 a day. So it really is a self-awareness tool that is for everyone. But our main goal is to find the people that have a passion for helping other people and guide them through this experience of self.
Melinda Wittstock: I love it. So how can people find you and work with you? I can’t wait to do this test. I think I’m going to get my kids doing it. I’m going to recommend it all over the place. How can people sign up for Vibeonix?
Kristi Holt: Thank you. We’re at www.vibeonix.com. And that’s spelled vibe, V-I-B-E, and then Onix, O-N-I-X, vibrational healing is really what we’re talking about. So you can go Vibeonix.com.
