Acclaimed Author Christina Rasmussen On New Book “Where Did You Go?” & Other Projects
Christina Rasmussen is the author of the recent HarperOne title Where Did You Go?: A Life-Changing Journey To Connect With Those We’ve Lost, as released on December 18, 2018. In Where Did You Go? Rasmussen explains how all of us have the ability to cross-over to visit our loved ones without having a near-death experience. The roots of this title are rarely to passing of Rasmussen’s husband at a young age, which led her to start researching and questioning the journey of the soul. Altogether Rasmussen’s latest book shares an undeniably-inspiring message of hope, optimism, and love.
I had the pleasure of doing Q&A with Ms. Rasmussen about Where Did You Go? and other recent projects of hers. More on the author can be found online at www.christinarasmussen.com.
How long did you spend writing Where Did You Go?
Christina Rasmussen: It took just over two years of writing from beginning to end. I spent a lot of time learning and researching the science behind our reality. What is it made of? How did it start? Are we co-creators by our ability to observe it?
In order for me to write even one chapter I would have to read, process and deeply understand the elements of our cosmos before I could write anything. Prior to the two years of writing all I did was read. So all in all about five years immersed inside this field. It is inescapable.
Was it easier writing this book after having written Second Firsts?
Christina Rasmussen: My brain was prepared for the complexity and intensity of writing a book, so that part was easier. Less surprises. Less anticipation in regards to the difficulty level of writing a book. But it had its own challenges. A much more complex concept in need of simplification. To simplify is much harder than to make something complex.
What inspired you to write this book as opposed to just keeping these concepts in your workshops?
Christina Rasmussen: The concept that reality is an illusion, a holographic projection from a deeper reality that is made of light is too big of a premise to keep within my workshops. It required an education and discovery approach that would have been lost inside a class. A book does something a workshop cannot do very well. It brings the teachings to a higher-level appeal. It brings it to the collective mind and it can impact humans much faster than a workshop could. The workshop is step two.
Is there a main takeaway you hope that readers of Where Did You Go will come away with?
Christina Rasmussen: Yes. Death is not real. It is only real in this reality, inside the third dimension. Where time exists. Death is a gateway to a higher level of consciousness. We die in someone else’s life and reality and not in our own.
Do you have another book in the works at the moment?
Christina Rasmussen: Yes, my next book will be science-fiction, a young adult trilogy about multiple universes, grief and a parallel reality. Think about the movie Interstellar married to the Twilight movies.
What is coming up for The Life Reentry Institute?
Christina Rasmussen: The Life Reentry Institute is about to embark on training 50 grief organizations or hospitals to run their own Life Reentry support groups. We are in the beginning of this process. The goal is that one day every organization that deals with aspects of grief to offer Life Reentry Resources.
Is it true that you consulted on an upcoming movie?
Christina Rasmussen: Yes, I consulted on the movie short Dreamwisher and it was an incredible experience one I look forward to repeating many times.
When not busy with work, how do you like to spend your free time?
Christina Rasmussen: I love to paint big paintings. I love to travel. I love to read and watch movies. I spend some of my free time also in sensory deprivation tanks while meditating.
What was the last concert you attended for fun?
Christina Rasmussen: I went to see P!nk last April for the second time. She is extraordinary.
Finally, Christina, any last words for the kids?
Christina Rasmussen: Stay in play mode as much as possible. Your imaginary friends are more real than people will tell you they are. And last but not least speak to the kid inside when the adult takes over the body and your life. Make the decisions from the kid. The kid knows this is all an illusion and everything is meant to be fun and games, after all we are the creators of the third dimension. And if in any doubt, watch Mary Poppins Returns.
