The Secret to Flawless-Looking Skin? Start with Flawless Foundation

Expert to Expert: Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Turned Spiritual Guide

Sue Devitt Interviews Britta Dubbels

Several years ago, I became a client of spiritual guide Britta Dubbels and have seen the immense benefits of her work channeling and enhancing inner beauty. Here, she shares her insights into spiritual healing.

Sue Devitt: Why do you think people come to see you?
Britta Dubbels: People come to see me because of a complaint, relationship dynamics, for example; something they wish to change—old habits or patterns; or they are ready to grow spiritually and consciously. In every case, it is about solution-thinking and how I can help to facilitate the desired outcome. The client and I identify the personal challenges, heal and release them, then replace with the desired goal. Depending on the client, success can be seen as quickly as within a few sessions.

SD: How do you benefit your clients?
BD: My clients do not always get what they want, but they always get what they need. They become authentically empowered, learning to create the changes themselves. Of course, I am there to hold their hands and guide them into and through openings, but everybody ultimately does the work for themselves.

SD: What is the emerging consciousness?
BD: 2012 is the end of the Mayan calendar and is referred to as “the end of the world as we know it.” It is like an odometer in a car—it clicks over to 0! A marker along this emerging consciousness shift—it’s not the beginning or the end. But, where we are when we hit this marker in terms of growth and consciousness will set the “tone” for the time to come.

The emerging consciousness is tied to the consciousness shift of 2012. It is a call to all of us to be better humans. How many of us are really working on ourselves, trying to be all we have come here to be, while often in the midst of challenges within our own lives?

SD: What is the other side?
BD: I call it the other side to make it easier for people to relate, but ultimately there is only one side—our essence. It is who we really are while having human experiences, even though our human conditioning and skepticism tells us “that’s not possible.” It is our conditioning, intellect, and fear, which keep us feeling and thinking separately from our essence. The emerging consciousness is here to assist the acknowledgement, healing, and lifting of this fear or density, so we may see the human experience and live it as our true selves.

Once they connect into the only side within themselves, everybody is able to communicate with their guides, angels, and certain masters assisting our human journey. Within this true essence self, we all hold access to the highest wisdom. There are, however, levels of consciousness.

When I work with my clients in my private practice, I can see the outer bodies or aura, the connection into source, and any unsupportive vibrational patterns or blockages. I also see and communicate with my clients’ guides and helpers in regard to important steps toward this clearing of density and fear.

SD: Why is it important to care about your appearance?
BD: I believe that we, as extensions of source, have come into these bodies with complete purpose and intention. Our bodies are our temples and vehicles. It is important to take care of them, love them, and honor them. Color, creativity, and beauty can be seen in nature all around us. It is not only about work and movement; it is also about the enjoyment of being alive in these glorious and magical bodies of ours. There is a balance between judging the self through the eyes of others and expressing the god or goddess within through loving and enhancing the body’s own beauty.

Britta’s Best Lifestyle Tips

Fashion Tip: If possible, in summer I wear my bikini tops instead of bras. It gives me a fresher, younger, more relaxed look. In winter, sarongs are great scarves—soft, colorful, they remind me of summer.

Beauty Tip: Always keep your skin moist. When moist, skin is elastic, and the natural movements of the face aren’t able to leave lasting lines as easily.

Fitness Tip: Tucking the pelvis under and sucking in the belly button throughout the day will make for a great stomach—and nobody will ever know that you are doing it.

Food Tip: My favorite is Thai—healthy, light, and satisfying.

Travel Tip: I always travel with my own blanket—a very thin but warm cashmere blanket that folds up into a little package.

Living Tip: Practicing conscious breathing, and making it a “habit” through good and bad moments of life opens up the incredibly wide spectrum of self.
