Holding Space for Others

Holding space.

It’s a phrase we tend to use a lot but what does it really mean and why does it matter?

Holding space means that you are giving up on the need to change someone’s life. You’re giving up on the desire to try and control someone’s outcome. You’re allowing people to be who they are and where they are in life and you’re allowing yourself to deal with whatever feelings YOU have about the choices they’re making.

Holding space means that you trust that whatever the outcome, it’s the outcome that is meant to be. (Even if it’s not the outcome you wished it would be.)

But it’s hard, ya’ll. Make no mistake about it. Holding space for other people is hard. It takes effort and grit. It takes awareness and a conscious intent to let others be who they are. AND it takes a strong understanding of your own willingness to be where you are and feel whatever it is you need to feel.

It’s hard.

It’s also confusing sometimes because there is a line between accepting poor treatment from someone and holding space for them.

You see, holding space doesn’t mean that you accept poor treatment from anyone. But what it does mean is that once you exert your perfectly loving and healthy boundaries — you let others feel whatever they need to feel as a result of the assertion of your boundaries; you don’t try and control it or them.

On the recorded Instagram broadcast below, I give two crystal clear examples of what holding space looks like and why it’s important.


In love with love,

Christina Joubert

A truth teacher and energy healer with the natural-born ability to turn darkness into light.

Christina is also The Spiritual Mediator, Founder & CEO of Teaching the World to Love, author of When Soulmates Unite – Learning to Love Ourselves from the People Who Can Hurt Us the Most; creator of The I Choose Love Project; and a proud mommy to a beautiful little boy.

As a natural-born energy healer, Christina understands that she was given great gifts and therefore has great responsibility to use those gifts responsibly and for the betterment of humanity.

As a truth teacher, Christina is able to see past the discomfort of life and is attuned to seeing the higher perspective in every situation. In providing her students with the higher purpose for why they have the experiences they have, her students begin to shift their energetic connection to the experiences. Her students move out of a place of dependency/shame/anger/fear and into a place of personal power and strength.

The wisdom she cultivates from this higher “knowing” coupled with her energy healing abilities helps her students to quickly breakthrough whatever blocks they’ve had to healing, progress or transformation. And, before they know it, they are seeing life differently, responding to life differently and feeling different in their own skin.


Christina’s signature Truth Teaching + Healing classes are her pride and joy and were created with three specific goals: 1) break down any barriers to change 2) begin the transformation process quickly and 3) make POWERFUL and LIFE-CHANGING transformations accessible to all.

Each class offers a unique combination for personal growth utilizing Christina’s signature 6-prong approach for lasting transformation: Heal the Energy + Empower the Person + Awaken the Potential + Comfort the Mind + Honor the Spirit + Love without Conditions.

Christina believes in the power of the human spirit, the potential of each person and that as we heal ourselves, we heal one another.

Christina has a gift to heal and was placed here to share it.
