I’m Christina Andrea Blunsum, I’m an Actress, Author of Words that will make you believe in yourself.
This blog is an expression of my life, all the things that I love and inspire me.
I am from Liverpool and I recently moved to the UK back to London. Before London, I was living in the Middle East for 3 years. What brought me there was typically by chance. I set an intention that I wanted to find out what I came here to do and to gain more of an understanding about life and that is exactly what happened. I feel like, I literally used myself as an experiment to really see what is possible when you release the limiting beliefs that hold you back from living creatively.
Deep down, I had always been who I am starting to become back to today, who could express myself with no fear, who could go on stage and perform in a Musical, who could dance and sing and draw and play music for the love of it. But I went through a period of my life where I stopped all of this and believed all of the limitations and beliefs that others told me. However, I wasn’t aware of how or why it had happened or even questioned it.
I dismissed my dreams, I felt lost, confused, depressed had severe anxiety, suffered in mentally abusive relationships because I allowed it and didn’t know my worth, started to hide away from the world and really tried my best to fit in. It got to a point where I was at a serious time in my life, I had come to University a year later than everyone because I felt like this is what I should do, because I didn’t understand belief or understand that you have to believe in yourself to follow what you really want to do. I studied IT, the reason I chose this was because I made my first online business when I was 13 (But I felt embarassed and geeky so I hid it away, it was called Pretty-Secrets) – and I thought ok maybe this is what I am meant to do. So at this point I kind of accepted ok, maybe this is my life now. It’s too late. I’ve gone past it all.
Then I couldn’t handle it, so I joined acting classes to spark some sort of aliveness into me again because I didn’t want to feel the way I was feeling and wanted to do something about it. This started my whole journey back to truth and love, although I originally intended to escape my reality, I found myself finding the truth, I couldn’t even play someone else if I didn’t know myself.
Then when I moved away, it was very uncomfortable and difficult because I didn’t believe in my capability or my worth, and ended up living there working in a restaurant for over 13 hour days. At this time, I felt even more frustrated. I didn’t realize that life gives us what we NEED to be the person we are meant to be. I was so nervous and shy to even pick up a phone and book in people for a reservation.
When I started to release fears and limiting beliefs, I found myself being inspired being drawn to certain things that excited me and taking action upon them, which lead me to landing lead roles in a number of films, tv series, tv commercials in a situation and country where I knew no one and had nothing but a dream and also became the #1 hottest selling author on Amazon.
If you are an artist or creative and you are struggling to take action, I would love to share with you my free fear releasing meditation.
Although I feel like I still have a long way to go, I actually have a clear vision now. When you release all of the things that make you doubt your possibility. You leave yourself open to your truth and your hearts desires. I really believe that we all have something so special to give to the world, we just express it in different ways.
This is why I wrote the book Words That Will Make You Believe In Yourself because you can use the tools within you to bring you back to your truth. When I felt so lost in my life, I was suffering from anxiety and depression and I felt so stuck within myself that whenever it came down to doing something important, I would freeze and I would not be able to do it and through the words and the power of our thoughts, I found myself being able to release these blocks and finally become a true expression of the things I love.
Another moment that really changed the course of my life forever was when my Dad passed away. Although it was the hardest time of my life, it made me see things differently. That we really do only get one chance of this life, and having fear about whether we are good enough is simply not an option.
Whilst we are here, we should express everything we want, just for the fun of it with no expectation.
