We had the good fortune of connecting with Krista Rauschenberg and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Krista, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?

It happened pretty organically, which is nice.  I was working as a Postpartum Doula, which was incredibly rewarding but the bulk of my business was working twelve-hour night shifts and that took its toll on my body. All the signs were there that it was time to retire…but I had no idea what to do next.

I didn’t want to go back to the world of Project Management and Production where I came from, but ended up needing to in order to make a living.

I found a good job with wonderful people but underneath I was miserable and confused about my future.  To make matters worse, my body started to reflect that. I was in excruciating pain on a daily basis and my vitality was at an all time low.

That’s when a friend suggested I have my Akashic Records read. I had never heard of such a thing but having always had a healthy curiosity with the metaphysical, I made an appointment and that reading ended up changing my life.

When the reader opened my Records I was given an invitation to do this work, to become an Akashic reader myself.  I immediately balked at the idea.  I couldn’t imagine doing something so financially risky and fringe for a living.

For some unspoken reason, I went forward and through all the training.  I soon began reading for friends and family. The joy and satisfaction I felt in being able to guide and support them was on another level.  From there I kept going, expanding my education into several different realms of Energy Healing in addition to the Akashic Readings.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?

Sure! Breathwork and the Akashic Records take most people far beyond traditional cognitive therapies to provide a deeper path to healing in a far shorter amount of time. By helping the person being read to understand the effects their positive and negative experiences have on their self-esteem, relationships, family dynamics and other life issues with which they struggle.

An Akashic reading can be extremely valuable. The soul’s very essence, expression, potential and purpose can be revealed. Issues of the lifetime are brought to light from a spiritual perspective. Both favorable and difficult patterns that are present can be identified and the corrective measures required to establish harmony can be seen.

Akashic Breathwork uses a very simple technique to activate the natural healing process within. By implementing a specific pattern of accelerated breathing, in a safe and comfortable setting, each person is gracefully supported to enter an altered state of consciousness. With inner healing intelligence and the Akashic Records guiding the process, the quality and content of the experience is unique to each person’s intentions, needs and particular life situation.

Working with the Akashic Records and Akashic Breathwork is a privilege. I have witnessed genuine transformation in people’s lives as it provides release, reform, answers, information, support and direction that they wouldn’t otherwise have access to.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.

I love a road trip!  I think I would try to hit every landscape California has to offer. I’d drive up the coast to Santa Barbara and see who was on stage at the Performing Arts Center or drive down to the cliffs in Laguna for some breathtaking views and then walk the beaches there.  On the drive back to LA, I’d stop off at the dog beach in Huntington, my dog Rodeo’s favorite spot.

I wouldn’t miss the desert for a soak in the Hot Springs, which always help me recalibrate.  It may be too simple for some, but I love having a nice dinner and then going to the movies.  That feeling I get when the lights go down right before the movie starts is heavenly.  I think I’d spend the last day in nature horseback riding in Topanga, to round it all out.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?

I am incredibly inspired by my clients. A majority of them have been with me from the start. I am always in awe at how willing and determined they are to do the deep, difficult work of self-reflection, self-realization and to take personal responsibility.

I have seen their lives change before my eyes and there is nothing more rewarding than to see people release the trauma, guilt and shame that once informed their thinking and decision making in order for them to be liberated, happy and whole.  This in turn allows them to love and inspire the people around them.
