Fika Podcast Episode 001: Time Traveling with Colette Chase Part 1
Erica Eriksdotter: Studio Eriksdotter presents FIKA
Erica Eriksdotter: Hi Lovelies, it’s time for FIKA. The Swedish word that means bonding and connecting with friends over coffee or tea. This is the place to be for real talks and discussions about everything from healing, fine arts, motherhood, entrepreneurship to health and fitness. The focus is connecting the dots through consciousness and elevating how consciousness is directed through each guest’s career and life path. The podcasts are around 30 minutes each. Shared on a bi-weekly schedule.
My name is Erica Eriksdotter, born and raised in Sweden and I now live outside of Washington, DC. I am a fine arts painter and owner of Studio Eriksdotter, Certified Intra-Dimensional Healer and PR and Social Media Strategist. I am a modern woman, connected to Self who brings meaning to life through an earth centered truth.
I am super excited about today’s topic which is time travelling with Colette Chase. There’s even a little exercise you can do with us so that is super exciting.
1. What is Fika? [1:00]
But, before we jump in let me tell you a little bit about FIKA since this is the first episode. So, FIKA, the word FIKA is actually firmly rooted in the Swedish culture. You usually have fika twice a day and you can fika at work by taking a coffee break, fika with someone like meet up for coffee or just drink a cup of coffee, tea or other non-alcoholic beverage. But, it’s not a party, it’s still a fika. Typically, you have something to eat with your coffee like a biscuit, cinnamon roll, cookie or fruit. But, it’s more than just the drink or the eat, the eating part. It’s about slowing down, taking a break, catching up with friends and enjoying each other’s company. So, without further ado, let’s have fika with Colette Chase.
Erica Eriksdotter: Hi Colette!
Colette Chase: Hi, Yeah, let’s fika.
2. Colette Chase shares how she became a healer [1:50]
Erica Eriksdotter: Yeah [laughs] Let me do your bio first. Colette is a multifaceted global healer. You can find her at facebook.com/divinewingministries and we will put that in the show notes so that it is an easy find. She has been my healer and coach since 2009, but long before then she started providing holistic health education and advocacy that she felt it was missing in the traditional western health practices. Over more than a decade, she has developed and implemented life programs that empower individuals to achieve their personal and global goals. So, Colette, when people ask you what you do as a healer and what a healer is, what do you tell them?
Colette Chase: Well, I try not to fall into that trap which is, I know, that’s kind of a negative connotations but [laughing] but people aren’t really interested so much in what you do. They are interested in what you can do for them. So, mostly what I end up telling them, is that I have extensive training and that I have been doing this particular work for years. However, let me tell you a story about one of my clients or let me tell you something what I know about what you are going through. Generally, the conversation gets off of me, because it’s really not about me. It gets onto them and their life purpose, their path, their health challenges, what have you. And I start to telling them what’s in it for them, where they could possibly go and then I leave it to them to decide whether or not they want to go down that path with me. And then my only promise to them, is that I will do my best. And, so that is kind of maybe atypical, but that is kind of where I go. People seem to respond to that really well.
Erica Eriksdotter: I think that’s always the dilemma. When you are at parties and you tell them what you do without ending up in a healing session for free.
Colette Chase: Yeah, and you know the names of things that other, you know, that my mentors called certain things, we have to name things in order to advertise. We have to name things in order to call it something, to have some sort of focus, but spirit really doesn’t do a lot of that. So, to say that I have certifications in this, this, and that, just confuses people because they don’t know what that is. Unless I am talking to a bunch of healers, then that’s a different story. So most of the time, even if I say that I have a degree in Psychology, there is like a whole slew of you know, descriptors that go with that, stereotypes and stigmas and things like that. So people don’t even know what that means. So, you know, again if you tie it into what’s in it for them, then of course you have to have a boundary, that says that I’d love to talk to you about this at your convenience, let’s make an appointment then you have handled that party situation.
Erica Eriksdotter: YEAH
Erica Eriksdotter: So tell me a little bit about your life story. How did you become a healer? I am thinking life, childhood, even your early experiences with spirituality, I mean, is it, give me a couple of glimpses of your moments of oh my god was that, did that actually happen?
Colette Chase: Well, as long as I can remember, I have always been psychic. My mother always tells the story, I don’t remember it, but my mother tells the story when we moved into this new house in Southern California. She was actually in the hospital with hepatitis. And, I think I was probably around 4 years old. And I went around to the new neighbors, knocking on the door telling them that my mom was in the hospital having a black baby.
Erica Eriksdotter: [laughing] what?
Colette Chase: [laughing] – So you know when I look back at that and I go. What was I looking at? I was looking at hepatitis, in the liver and my 4-year-old eyes was looking at my mom’s tummy and I was looking at the disease pattern and that is how I interpreted it. So, it’s a hilarious story, I tell it when I have people around that are willing to listen to it. I think it’s funny. Thing like that, to me, everyone is psychic, which to me psychic stuff is not abnormal. It’s pretty much like having blonde hair, blue eyes and psychic vision. Umm, so as far as the healing path goes, I think mine is a pretty typical path to healing that I have heard several times from other people. Which is, I needed to be healed so I went in search for healing that was outside of Western traditional methods. Umm, and So, I have always had service oriented jobs dealing with people, and serving people. So, my career path and my healing path kind of ran parallel for a while. Helping people, helping myself, helping people, helping myself. And then at some point, they met and then I decided, oh, I want to train now and because I have helped myself so many times and I have gone to other healers I think there is something about that and then all of a sudden my career path and my healing path merged and then i became, that became my career is healing. So it’s kind of that clichéd, that when the student’s ready, the teacher will appear. That kind of happened for me over and over again. Until, basically I became the teacher and evolved into something more of that. That’s kind of a little bit of my background.
Erica Eriksdotter: And, isn’t it that once you have healed certain areas of your life and past lives, and future lives, etcetera, that you become kind of the master or your attracting the clientele that needs that stuff healed as well?
Colette Chase: Yeah, that is true for anybody. Healing is available to everyone and we heal ourselves on a daily basis. Every seven years our body has brand new cells in it. So basically we uh resurrect ourselves every seven years pretty much. Every time we have to fight off something we, you know, we’re healing ourselves. To me there is no cure, only self-healing. That has always been my focus. But, as far as you healing something in your life, no matter what it is, let’s say it’s cancer. If you work through that and you go through the original cause of the disease which goes beyond the physical. There are mental, emotional, spiritual components to every disease. Once you explore that, once you get on the other side of it, no matter if you have to take a Western approach to healing or a non-western approach once you get on the other side of it and are no longer in cancer school, as I like to call it. That cancer is no longer teaching you about yourself. Then yes, then in your aura, in your beingness, you have how you self-healed from cancer. And because you have that in your aura, no matter where you go. You bump your aura against someone else, you can share that information with each other. In fact, we share that all the time. That is the major way we teach each other, how to create things and how to dis-create things.
Erica Eriksdotter Yeah, we definitely have to do a podcast about or an episode about original cause. Because I think that is so fascinating how a disease in your body is you know, I’ve, I’ve yeah exactly and it can down so many levels and you know, clearly have lived through it myself. I have had it happen many times, where you just think. Well, just recently, right, Colette. We did my ear. The ear turned into something else completely. It’s so connected and you have to solve those pieces, the puzzle pieces and then eventually the ear will also be healed and that’s the original cause.
Colette Chase: Right, Right.
Erica Eriksdotter: To simplify it.
Colette Chase: Simplify it down, exactly. The paradox is as long as your in body, you are going to be working on something. There are people ask me all the time, ‘Well, if you are a healer, how can you get sick?’
Erica Eriksdotter: [laughing] YEAH
Colette Chase: [laughing] AND I am like, well before healing is what I do and a human is who I am.
Erica Eriksdotter: (Boldy) I’d like to be Superwoman.
Colette Chase: I’d love that, but then if I am done, then I won’t be here.
Erica Eriksdotter: Yes, so, so
Colette Chase: I will be some other incarnation learning some different stuff.
Erica Eriksdotter: [Laughing] And I would like to keep you a little bit longer, so.
Erica Eriksdotter: [Laughing]I suggest you have some illnesses, just small ones, manageable, let’s keep you here.
3. Let’s talk Time Traveling [11:34]
Erica Eriksdotter: Let’s talk about time travelling which is today’s topic. Um, I don’t know about you Colette, but my favorite time traveling movie, is About Time. Have you seen that one?
Colette Chase: About time?
Erica Eriksdotter: Yeah
Colette Chase: Who’s in that?
Erica Eriksdotter: Uhhh, it’s the girl who is in the notebook. I can’t remember her name. It’s so lovely. It’s really lovely. It’s a funny one, you know it the British humor. Anyways, of course you have Back to the Future, Kate and Leopold, etcetera. There are hundreds of movies on this topic. But, time travelling isn’t just in the movies. In fact, it is something we do all the time we do here on earth.
Colette Chase: All the time
Erica Eriksdotter: [Laughing] For someone hears that we actually time travel on a normal basis, that kind of sounds a little bit bananas. Can you walk us through that? What you mean by time travelling? You know for listeners who have never heard this concept before.
Colette Chase: Sure, the first thing I want to say, I am not talking about time travel that is made up in the movies. There is such a thing as bi location, tri location traveling, teleportation, that is happening on the planet at this time. So, that is not science fiction, it is actually happening. Not only with sages and healers but it’s actually happening in science. We are actually transporting cells and what not through space and time. So, it is happening. The thing that we are looking at in the movies, the time travel movies, where you are actually physically taking your whole self and you go back in time and you stay there. You go forward in time, stay there. That consciousness is not on our planet enough for that to be happening. But, that will be a possibility in the future. What we do on the daily basis is that we do a form of time travel. Which is we’re accessing the dimensions of time and they are real things.
4. A quickie on dimensions (past-future-present) [13:49]
Colette Chase: Dimensions are, we could do a whole show on what a dimension is. To simplify that, dimensions are basically reality. And, they have different rules and different dimensions. Different frequencies to each dimension. We are accustomed to third dimensional reality. Again, I am going to use numbers in this podcast. And, I am not saying that these numbers are the end all, be all of dimensional reality. They are just again, kind of like putting a buoy in the ocean and marking the ocean and the ocean water is moving passed that buoy all the time. So, there dimension, time is a dimension. Two to be exact. You have past dimension and future dimension. Present time is where you can access all dimensions. It’s one of the reasons you want to stay in present time. So, that is kind of the framework I am talking about. People are constantly travelling up and down their timeline through these dimensions all the time. In fact, they don’t even realize that they are out of present time. It seems like nothing disappears really, you know. It’s not like they go back in time, they are wearing a different outfit, or a different period in time, this sort of thing. It is on their own timeline. They are creating their own reality. They are unaware of it most of the time.
5. Are you stuck in the past? [15:25]
Collette Chase: So, for instance, if you live in the past, if you access past dimensions, you have that doorway open to you. I’m not even talking about going through the doorway really, travelling back in time, although that is possible to do. Even having the door open so to speak to this dimension, creates a lot of discord because you are constantly repeating your own history. So if you looked into your life right now and you’re just like the one trick pony and you are creating things over and over again. You know. It might not be across the board in your whole entire life, but it might be in places where you’re working on. For instance, I know a lot of people who repeat in their relationships. They date the same person over and over again, even if that person is in a different body. Do you know what i mean?
Erica Eriksdotter: Yeah or have the same type of job or awful boss.
Colette Chase: Yeah, it could be a different job, but the same dynamics, same relationship issues, same patterns over and over again. Maybe it shows up in their finances. Maybe it shows up in some of the other life path issues. But, that is a serious red flag. If you can’t seem to get out of something and you have a repeating pattern, then there are aspects of you that are rooted in the past a lot and need to be pulled in to the present time. The emotion that goes with the past generally emotions that can tell you that you are in the past is rage is one of the. Which is not anger. Anger is actually in present time. Rage and grief.
Erica Eriksdotter: mmmmm
Colette Chase: Those two emotions, if you are start running them, they will definitely pull you into the past and you will time travel into your past.
Erica Eriksdotter: So grief is healthy to feel, to experience and to live through. But, if you continue, if you are finding yourself continuing for a very long time, and your repeating the patterns, that might a sign that you have the door to the past open.
Colette Chase: Yes. I am not going to put a value judgement onto these emotions. You really shouldn’t, because no emotion is neither good nor bad. Like you said, if you are constantly running a certain program, a certain default program, then you’re not going to have anything new occur. So, you know, if you are constantly running grief, and you can’t seem to get out of that, that is going to be an issue for you because now your default program is to filter everything through grief.
Erica Eriksdotter: So before we talk about present time and future Colette will actually be answering your questions during an upcoming episode dedicated to community wisdom. So, submit your question with the hashtag #fikapodcast on twitter or via the link in the show notes. We would love to hear from you.
6. Hello future! No surprise there. [18:48]
Erica Eriksdotter: So, how can you tell that you’re not in present time. And, what are the signs that you might be living in the future?
Colette Chase: Okay, so let’s talk about future first. We already talked about past a little bit as an introduction. If you are accessing the dimension of the future, then what you are doing is. You are trying to, most client that I see that are accessing the future are trying to make it so there’s no surprises for them. They want to kind of move ahead and see the prequel of what’s coming or they want to see what’s coming or they want to be reaffirmed about what’s coming so that they don’t get blindsided. The emotion that goes with the future, is anxiety. If you think about when you are anxious, your concerned about the what if’s. What if this happens, what if this happens. There is a lot of energy to be put on something that hasn’t even occurred. You can see where that’s detrimental because your future path is not linear. There’s not like one path that goes into your future. There are several paths that go into your future. And some paths that you don’t take will end up in your parallel lives. That’s a whole other, you know, different thing is talk about. Parallel lives and parallel realities. Which is a different dimensional thing. So, its, you can see where it is kind of futile because how many dimensions are you creating in any given time and would you be able to travel all of them and be able to manipulate that. The answer is no. So, if you are in the future, the MO for that, sometimes, the vocabulary of that, is you know, everything’s going to be better when. Or everything in my life is going to change if only this occurs. When my man comes. When I win the lottery. When I graduate. When I get the new car. When I get the new job. Etcetera, Etcetera. That’s when my life is going to get on track. So, the ship is always coming in for people that are always stuck in the future and have the door open too long.
Erica Eriksdotter: Yeah, and there’s the art of the fine line between you can balance, or sorry, you can schedule your vacation and look forward to your vacation. You can schedule your upcoming calendar for the month without, you can do that in the now, you don’t have to go into the future. But, there is that fine balance, of if you are really prone I would say for lack of a better word, to live in the future, you might be in the future while planning your vacation, is that accurate?
Colette Chase: Well, there’s certain times when you know all the dimensions are available to you. For you, you know, to develop your consciousness. They are consciousness themselves. I am not saying don’t ever go there. I’m saying use it in the correct way. Don’t live there. So, if you are planning something, you might want to open up the door for future things that might be coming. That as far as timing goes, you might not want to take your trip to Greece if you know that the economy is going to trash. Do you see what I am saying?
Erica Eriksdotter: Yeah.
Colette Chase: So, that would be the appropriate use of the future dimension. But, yeah, what you are talking about, what I am talking about, is actually having aspects of Self that are constantly and or recreationally or being maladaptive and staying there for long periods of time. That’s an imbalance. Because all of your creative juices happen in present time. It’s only in present time we are accessing your dimensional reality and that’s where you want to springboard from when you are manifesting what you want, present time. For instance, let’s say I am past girl, and I want to manifest a new relationship. Who do you think – who in me, right, is going to be the person who attracts that man. Is it going to be my present time self where there is not much energy there or is it going to be my past self, which is running around without adult supervision in the past who is going to pick for me? It’s going to be my past self. Guess, what kind of man I am going to get? Something new? Probably not.
7. How do we know we’re in present time? [23:55]
Collette Chase: Present time, you know you asked me how do you know if you are in present time.
Erica Eriksdotter: [emphatic] YES!
Colette Chase: There are a lot of techniques I suppose, or practices or alignments or whatever you want to call them. There are a lot of things you can do and be to stay in present time. And staying in present time is one of those fundamental teachings you do when you are kind of first studying the paths of consciousness, however that might be. It’s fundamental that you can stay in present time. I will tell you something, staying in present time is harder than you think. You can spend lifetimes trying to stay there. I mean, you know, it’s very difficult because we are multi-dimensional in nature. We keep forgetting that. We often think that we are these third dimensional creatures. That being said, is one of the simplest ways, is to use the ‘I AM’. The ‘I AM’ is you know, when I say, ‘I AM Erica’, you know what are you saying there. You know, you are saying, you are everything that Erica represents, everything that Erica has been through, her parents.
Erica Eriksdotter: Yes, my whole essence.
Colette Chase: Her lineage. Every time your name has been said. Everything that has been on a legal document. Everything that you all of your certificates, awards, etcetera, etcetera. There is a lot of energy on your name. It’s an address. You have a specific name that is telling the address of your physicality. So, when you say your name, it’s like this little beacon that lights up in the webbing of the universe. There she is. There’s her little consciousness. You can use the name. The ‘I AM’ is like that.
Erica Eriksdotter: And you want to say your full name?
Colette Chase: Well, you already know your name, hopefully.
Erica Eriksdotter: [laughing] I am like, ok.
Colette Chase: Have a friend say it.
Erica Eriksdotter: [laughing]
Colette Chase: I am using the name as an example of the ‘I AM’. The ‘I AM’ is when you are saying, it includes the names, but everything else that you are. So, I AM not only includes your name, which is part of your address, where you are at. It includes your physicality, your emotionality, your spirituality. Includes you mentally. It’s all who you are. It includes your conscious self, your subconscious self, you microcosmic, cosmic, macro-cosmic self. The ‘I AM’ is a powerful tool. You are doing it with your intention. You are not doing it like an affirmation. Affirmations are strictly mental. When you say the ‘I AM’ with intention, you are including everything, everything that you are. Regardless of whether you are conscious of it or not. So, when I say, I AM Here, I AM NOW, I AM PRESENT. Then that says where I am at any given point in time. Which is here, now, present. So, that is a wonderful one to use. I often, when I am using the ‘I AM’, when I just did with intention, you could feel that. For those of you who are empaths. I also use what’d called a root lock. When I am using the ‘I AM’, also squeeze my root lock, which is your belly button, your anus, and your sex organs and you squeeze in all of those at the same time. That is your physical trigger to pull you into the seat of who you are. Get you seated there. When you combine that with I AM Here, I AM NOW, I AM PRESENT. It will invariably pull you into present time.
Erica Eriksdotter: Is there a frequency that you recommend? Or is it up to everyone?
Colette Chase: If you are thinking about it, trust yourself. If you are thinking, Hmmmm, I wonder if I am present? You’re probably not. If that little technique comes to mind, it’s coming mind for a reason and that reason may be that you are out of present time. Because it has no side effects, no down time, then you might as well just do it. When you think about it. If you are person doesn’t really think about that kind of stuff on a regular basis, you might want to set an alarm. Get your phone out, set an alarm, maybe three times during the day. To make sure you’re in present time. One of the other things that you can do too is that you can start looking around yourself, where you’re at. I was sitting in a room right now and if I feel I am not in present time, I can start looking around the room and look at the objects in the room and noticing what they are and what they are used for and how they are doing and have a relationship with them. Having a relationship with some of the things around you instead of just giving them a cursory glance. Noticing how many windows are in the room, how many portals and doors and things that are in the room. The shapes, the colors, the sounds, the feelings. You know, if you can get more senses involved, the smells then that helps pull you into present time. A lot of times what I noticed is that people live primarily inside their mental body and outside of their physicality. When they start coming into present time, sometimes they feel uncomfortable, because it’s not their normal alignment for living.
Erica Eriksdotter: So, let’s go back and explain what does that mean, “living outside of your body”?
Colette Chase: Well, remember, your body, your physicality is the simplified, is only one fourth of who you are. One very small part. If you were just going to use the model of spiritual, mental, emotional and physical. It’s only 1/4th of who you are. Mental is 1/4th and emotional is 1/4th. People often live in the mental body because there’s no feelings there. Your mental body, it runs on logic and entertainment and puzzling and things like that. It’s like a computer. You know? When I see people getting onto these computer games. I am like, yeah, that is like the mental body. You can control everything, you’ve got the on/off button, you’ve got your little controler. You can say how much time you are going to be in this world, this virtual world. That is totally mental body. Most people live there outside of emotions and how their body feels. Especially if their body is in pain. It’s hard to be in a body that is in pain. If they don’t have a spiritual connection, where are they going to go? Most people live in their mental body. Most people live outside their body. Like I said, if you are still identifying your physical body as it being the end all, be all, I guess this would be a shock to you.
Erica Eriksdotter: [laughing]
Colette Chase: [laughing] – because you are an immortal spiritual being and this is just one of your experiences. There are aspects to you right now that are in the past dimension. There are aspects of you right now, whoever can hear my voice, that are in present dimensions. There are aspects of you now that are in future dimension all at the same time. If you study physics now, that is exactly what they are saying. They are saying that time is moldable and malleable and it all exists at the same time. Which is a paradox. Which is hard to get your mind around. Healers have believed that for years because that is dimensional reality.
Erica Eriksdotter: This is why it would be a little bit uncomfortable for people who are not normally in present time to get back into present time. Feeling a little uncomfortable is fine. You are doing a great job.
Colette Chase: You know, if you are comfortable all the time, you’re not growing.
Erica Eriksdotter: [laughing]
Colette Chase: So, just keep that in the back of your mind. It’s okay to be uncomfortable. A lot of people think that happiness is something that has a high level of comfort. But, if you think about when you’re satisfied, it usually comes with a lot of work.
Erica Eriksdotter: It’s like what Dr. Brenè Brown says, you can’t be comfortable and brave at the same time.
Colette Chase: No, not really,
Erica Eriksdotter: So, So Colette, since I said this first episode was going to be about 30 minutes, why don’t we make this a two-parter? We’ll save the exercise for the next time you will be on.
Colette Chase: Good.
Erica Eriksdotter: Alright. I think this is a great topic. Again, if you have any questions, make sure to use #fikapodcast on twitter or use the link that’s included in the show note for any questions you have for Colette. Where can people find you Colette and what are the services you provide? Are you only local to San Antonio, TX? How can people reach you for services?
Colette Chase: People can reach me on twitter at @chaseingrace. Can reach me on Facebook with the divinewingsministries page that you mentioned earlier. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Right now, you can definitely work with me one-on-one. My work right now is geared more towards a student/teacher mentorship thing that I do with people that’s mostly, it’s more of a commitment to learn from me. But, I definitely do take one-on-one clients still. That can be done either over the phone or on Skype. I’ve got clients all over the world. So, it is just a matter of getting a hold of me and letting me know when you’re available.
Erica Eriksdotter: Great. Alright, So, that’s it for the first episode. That was fun Colette.
Colette Chase: Yeah, a lot.
Erica Eriksdotter: I feel like we got to 5% of what we wanted to get to.
Colette Chase: Yeah, i think if they wanted to do homework, then I would suggest that their homework can entail the technique we’re going to do.
Erica Eriksdotter: Okay.
Colette Chase: Would be to try and stay in present time.
Erica Eriksdotter: Yeah, you are right. I think that’s a wonderful idea. Anyone who is listening, let’s keep that as a homework for next episode when Colette is on. I AM PRESENT, I AM HERE, I AM NOW. The next episode will feature another guest, but Colette will be back. Like I said in a full episode dedicated to community wisdom, to submit your questions, #fikapodcasts.
