Christel R. Christensen sold everything she had to travel 16 months to contribute and to change the world. She wished to influence and empower people to change their perspective, their lives and consequently the world by the ripple effect we create once we start thinking, choosing and acting differently. Christel offered the people she met on her journey 5-30 minutes of her time, insights and advice – that of which in her daily life is the service she provides for world leaders.
Christel is now indirectly influencing millions:
The goal of Christel R. Christensen’s “The Treasure – Change the World Tour” was to connect with as many people as possible to reach a critical mass to empower people by realising that we can ALL make a positive change in our daily actions, in our lives and organizations. It is through our thoughts, choices and actions that we create the courage to dare and the energy to care. It is said that connecting with 22.000 people you will make a permanent change in the World.
Through Christel’s meetings, connections and time spent with a broad range of people on her Treasure Change the World Tour from the man in the street, artists, school teachers, business owners and film producers – supporting them in what ever their current challenges – Christel is now indirectly influencing millions.
We CAN make a positive difference:
Christel’s wish is that we all realise that we CAN make a difference no matter where we are. That we are actually the ones we have been waiting for. it is the small changes we make in our own lives that can make a ripple effect of great change. Imagine if your smile, your offer to help, your change in attitude would actually change not only the world around you but also your life – dont you think that it was worth it?
One of the things Christel became aware of on her tour was that following her intuition she has traveled back and forth twice as a boomerang in Canada, the US, Europe, Bali (the western side of Indonesia), New Zealand and Australia. a boomerang matching the lives we have chosen to live – the life that exhausts us. She says that we forget the treasure, the fact that we have an immense capacity within us followed by a great responsibility. Lets start to relax, meditate and listen. Our mere breath will be our catalyst to positive change though healthy thoughts, wise choices and conscious action. The key to better lives and a better world.
“Everyone should see the beauty I have seen”:
To make her reflections and experiences along the way free and available to everyone Christel has shared posts from her tour on her Facebook page and her blog where she along her tour updated her audience with new thoughts and perspectives – perspectives from a tour with the intention to empower and remind people that we CAN make a positive difference in the world and our lives with the mere energy we transmit through our thoughts, choices and actions.
Years back someone advised Christel to never share pictures from her travels because it would cause great jealousy and she could be judged. Christel sincerely hope that people can feel her wish to include people who do not have the same opportunity as her self to through her eyes be a part of her tour. Because she believe that everyone who wish to live a better life and to make the world a better place should have the opportunity to see the beauty that she saw – to be inspired, to gain new energy to keep moving and know that everything is possible once we put our mind and heart to it.
The inspiration for the trip:
Christel had the inspiration for her tour after publishing her book “The treasure: how to change the world. Energistic Leadership® as an agent for visionary change” in July 2013. In the process of finding the name for the book, a team member asked why she wrote the book and the prompt answer was:” I wish to make people realize the immense capacity we have as individuals to create a positive change and the great responsibility we have as individual to make a difference in the world and in other people’s lives. Starting by recognizing that our thoughts, choices and actions does create a ripple effect and have a consequence – negative or positive, its our choice how we wish to live our life and how we change the world.”. The team member gasped and said: “That is what you should name your book: How to Change the World.”
After publishing her book Christel started seeing herself travel more with the message that we can change the world, and slowly a new chapter opened up in her work advising World Leaders. Christel then in August 2014 took a leap of faith and sold most of her belonging to finance her tour, left her dream home to new tenants and traveled the world with her one suitcase to connect, inspire and to facilitate a paradigm shift in the world for and with the people she meets on her journey.
Her intuition as a travel guide for genuine contribution:
Being an intuitive since she was a little girl, sensing energy and knowing answers before the questions were formulated Christel decided to let the journey be guided by her intuition. Hence, she committed to follow her intuition 100%, have open tickets and to interact with the people she would meet along her journey and be guided by the opportunities that opened up. there was no planed meetings – she met who she was supposed to meet.
To genuinely prove to people that she met and to whom she offered her insights, advice and support that she only wanted to contribute, she took no contact details of those she met as a part of building trust for people to receive was that there was no catch. Christel had the genuine wish to contribute, to improve lives and consequently the world a better place.
Unofficially the trip started in India:
Unofficially the trip started in India last fall 2013 where she spoke a the global convention “Economic Growth – Possibilities amidst Challenges in making it Sustainable and Humane” at Asia Plateau, Initiative for Change. Yet, the official tour started the 1st of August 2014 and ended in Australia in September 2015.
