Her passion for making the world a better place shines through her articles, workshops and books. Kate’s belief in the interconnectedness of all beings fuels her humanitarian efforts. And yeah, we’re going to explore that today on the show. So welcome to Supernormalized, Kate.
Welcome to the show, Kate. So, Kate, you’re a multi talented author, speaker, entrepreneur, coach, and reiki master teacher. And you have a lot of wisdom around meditation and personal growth and you have this way of putting that you work with people by helping them to embrace their brilliance.
How did you get to that position in life and what was your story behind all this?
[00:05:51] Kate (guest): Yeah. Oh, thank you so much for having me here and I’m very grateful to be able to share my story. My hope is it is an inspiration, essentially, and I’ll go into briefly a little bit of detail, but essentially it’s really about recognizing that I can make change and recognizing the greatness of who I am, not egotistical, but to know that I, like everyone on the planet, deserves to know their brilliance. And so it started back when I was a child, like for so many of us, I had a very difficult and challenging childhood. Traumatic.
Part of that was when I lost most of my hearing when I was two years old. I actually curious, Toddler. I fell out of a window and result yeah, about a story and a half high. As a result, I lost most of my hearing, but my parents didn’t know that until a few years later when I wasn’t speaking well, wasn’t speaking much. As a result, they recognized it and we did some things, but I had so much shame around that and no confidence.
And part of the impetus of my passion to help others and to recognize their brilliance really comes from that background of having low self esteem and the whole gamut. And in my I think it was around my early 20s when I had been in for so many years in a place of frustration and angst, fear, unhappiness.
I was just a mess.
I saw others were successful with joy and they’d had their ups and downs, but they were usually in a good place. And that was my impetus to make change. I took a lot of self help workshops, books, did some psychotherapy, I did a lot of work. So over the years, I actually came into knowing I deserve good and that I can make change and that I can offer my gifts and recognizing what those gifts are. So as a result of all of that personal work, when we’re all on this journey, right, we all make that change. We are in this journey to expand in our personal growth. So it is as a result, because of the extreme of where I used to be. And gosh, it seems like it was five lifetimes ago, but where I was compared to where I am today, this is what gives me that impetus and the passion to support people and to be here, like on your podcast, to let people know it totally is possible to make positive change and yes, embrace our brilliance. And that is okay to do that.
[00:09:07] CeeJay (host): Yeah, that’s a heartwarming story and also a little tragic. But it’s great that you went through that because it drove you towards this path.
[00:09:15] Kate (guest): Exactly.
I’m actually grateful. It is the very reason, I truly believe why I have a deeper sense of compassion and understanding towards the whole realm of being a human and our spiritual beings. But we’re in this human body, right?
[00:09:38] CeeJay (host): Yeah, for sure.
So how do you raise your consciousness and why is this important to your happiness?
[00:09:45] Kate (guest): Yes, excellent question. There are so many ways that we can raise our consciousness and as we do, it so parallels and supports us in more joy and happiness many different ways. One is if it resonates with a person to get into a routine of meditation.
Meditation is a lovely way to deepen into connection within ourselves and also to be in alignment with source or God or spirit or whatever word we use. But that helps and it has an amazing cumulative effect. As we meditate, every day goes on. As we have that practice of meditation, the sense of the wholeness and wellness and depth of that connection just supports us through the day. And meditation, that could be a whole topic in itself, but there’s many ways to do it.
Sitting in a lotus position is not the only way. Walking in nature and just being totally present is also another way to do it. Another way that I like to do for and so simple to raise my vibration is to have gratitude.
Gratitude is a high vibration. And if we can have sincere gratitude, there’s so many things to be grateful for. And so it’s really important to know that.
It’s not that we have to be in high vibration all the time. Because that’s not possible. We do have challenges, we have upsets. But once we can get into awareness of the upsets, acknowledge them, have self compassion, and work through process the emotions, and depending on the depth of the work we need to do around what happened, then we can go back into our place of connection and higher vibration. So for me, going into gratitude is great. Like, simple things. I’m so grateful. When the water comes out of my kitchen sink, faucet, I mean, it’s right at my fingertips and my car starts, I’m healthy, I’m able to get out of bed. I have energy to do my work. There’s just countless things to be grateful for. So those are two ways that we can raise our vibration. I can share others if you want, but anyway, that’s a good start.
[00:12:26] CeeJay (host): That’s a good start for sure. I do meditation every day myself, and I sometimes do just a silent meditation where I find myself, I let go of my thoughts, and I get into a sort of space where you’re actually in between thoughts. And when you get to that point, you sort of just let it happen that you stay there rather than as soon as you grasp at it, you lose it and then start thinking about things again. You got to sort of just let it happen. And I had explained that to my wife several times because I’m trying to get her to meditate, and for ages she’s like, I just can’t meditate. Then one time it happened for her, she goes, it’s that place between the thought, that’s it, that’s it.
Yeah. So that’s that’s that’s definitely a great method. And even like, I wholly encourage even guided meditations, because guided meditations work fine too. And there’s so many ways to do that now. There’s so much online you can use for free that helps with sort of meditation.
So it’s an easy way in, for sure. And gratitude is another one of my practices. Personally, myself, I have gratitude, a personal gratitude practice that I actually do every day before I go to sleep. And I offer gratitude to, well, first of all, to all of my ancestors.
For me, that actually helped me to become incarnate as a human. Again, I have this gratitude practice that goes through all of the spirits and everything that I work with. And it’s just something I think that should be done every day personally, because for me, it helped change a lot of things. I mean, I used to do ones where I was having gratitude to my younger inner self, and I would say, I have gratitude for you going through those experiences and getting through them and actually living and all that you learned and everything that you got from that.
But all the pain, you can let go. I have gratitude if you’re letting go of that pain or letting go of all the experiences in the negative way and just grabbing all the good stuff and bringing that forward. And I did that for a long time. That helped cure so many things for myself. When I say cure, it’s like relieving stress and anxiety. So, yeah, wholly encouraged with the gratitude practice myself. It’s so good. So good.
[00:14:49] Kate (guest): Yes. Beautiful.
[00:14:52] CeeJay (host): When you empower your readers, clients and audiences, how do you actually do that? I mean, you’ve said that you’ve do it with the meditation practice and the gratitude practice. Do you do this in any other specific methods?
[00:15:08] Kate (guest): Are you asking me, like, how I empower my clients?
[00:15:12] CeeJay (host): Yeah.
[00:15:13] Kate (guest): And yeah, there are specific things I do through the coaching, or even if I’m just out with friends or my kids or anyone, by acknowledging them when they’re doing something really great or just to reinforce whatever it is that they are saying.
Also, another way to empower is to have them come up with their own answer.
And it’s very empowering when we can do something on our own and then see the success, witness what we have done as being successful and like, wow, that helps gain that sense of confidence and self empowerment when we go out, especially if we’re doing something that we’re not accustomed to do. There’s people, like, they’re a little bit afraid to oh, for example, looking for a new job. But it’s so comfortable to be in the same job, even though it’s stressful and it hurts. And yet to make change may be very scary, but if they go out and do that and they’re like, wow, it worked, that can be really empowering. Absolutely. Yeah. I like to empower them, just recognizing their brilliance, helping them to acknowledge the good that they’ve done. That what action steps they took, for example, was successful. Plus, just in my coaching sessions with my clients, as we’re going through the session, they may have brought something up and then I will ask them, because coaching is so much about asking the client so that they gain the insights from within.
And as they do gain that insights, they’re like, wow, yeah, I do recognize this, and they can get that sense of empowerment.
[00:17:11] CeeJay (host): Yeah, right. Excellent.
Well, how important is it to be aware of your own energy vibrations and how that improves your life and humanity? What do you mean by that? And what is an energy vibration to you?
[00:17:26] Kate (guest): Yes, it’s so important to be well, I will back up from that question momentarily, which leads right into the answer.
And that is when we live in a place of mindfulness and awareness, when we are in a place of witness to our own selves, we are in, well, a lot more empowerment. We are so much more aware. And from that, it is so helpful and much easier to then recognize, oh, I’m really stressed right now, or Why did I react so strongly to this person?
My energy is not feeling really good right now, or I’m out and I’m having a lot of fun. And if I’m in a place of awareness, I can see, oh, I am having fun and my vibration is higher. So I feel a fundamental well, a foundation for all of life in any area is awareness. I always share that with my clients and audiences. How key it is that we can have a much more conscious and happy life when we are aware, so then we can be aware, well, I’m here. Maybe I don’t feel very good right now. And why is that? Or maybe we do know why.
And then going into a place, well, okay, I need to deal with this, I need to process it again, having that mindfulness and awareness, and then going into, well, what can I do to get into a higher vibration?
What can I do to make myself feel better now, something I really love to emphasize, though. There is nothing wrong to have upset emotions. We all are all challenged with that, as you know. But when we can recognize it again, we’ll be more aware of that. When we are in a conscious, mindful way of living, then we can catch ourselves. And again, is there a process I need to do now to release that upset? Is it something in my control? Maybe it’s not in my control.
What can I do? And then in time, releasing it and as a result, then take those tools out of that toolbox and raise the vibration again.
[00:19:59] CeeJay (host): Yeah, it’s very important to raise your vibrations. And I like that how you were saying that it’s good to actually step into a state of mindfulness of actually what’s happening for you. I think a lot of us, we get caught up in the world and living in the world and being in the world and doing things in the world, and you don’t step back and go, wait a minute, I’m actually stressed.
And if you do that, then you actually are acknowledging what is going on for you. And in that acknowledgment, then you can change it. And when you make that change, that’s when you can bring yourself into a different, higher vibration and a better understanding of yourself. I find for myself, when I actually get into a good state that influences everyone around me, change just happens because I’m changed.
[00:20:47] Kate (guest): Exactly. And you said it so well. And it’s so important again to being in that place of awareness because so many of us, and me included, of course, up until a few years ago, would work on an automatic mode and not think and just reactive. And this and that, but how wonderful it is where we can step out and be in the observer of ourselves and be in tune not just with our words, but being in tune with how does my body feel right now?
Why did I react so strongly to this person? Or if I walk into a public place and for some reason I’m feeling uncomfortable. Good to have that awareness.
[00:21:31] CeeJay (host): Yeah, for sure. It’s actually an extra level of intuition.
[00:21:34] Kate (guest): I’d even say yes, exactly.
I like that.
[00:21:40] CeeJay (host): Yeah.
How important is it to realize that we’re actually interconnected with everyone? And how does that help us have more respect, kindness, love, collaboration in peace and joy in our lives?
[00:21:55] Kate (guest): Excellent question. Again, I believe that as we recognize and experience that we are all interconnected when we get that. And by the way, you know, quantum physics, quantum mechanics has proven this time and again the interconnection. But when I am aware that I am interconnected, then I am more likely to realize that what I put out, what I say, what I do to another comes back to me.
And I believe that as I’m more in that awareness and consciousness of that, that I would be more inclined to be kind and to be respectful and to have reverence for life towards the other because they really are part of who I am. And then however I treat others comes back to me. So it’s like I’m not like kind and respectful so that I will be treated that way, but I just have that sense of I want to be kind and respectful because, oh, gosh, we’re all in this together. We are interconnected. My energy does interpenetrate in coalescence with others, so why not be of kindness? Plus, when I’m recognizing I’m interconnected, I also know, and some of us who are sensitives or empaths will really pick up on this.
I will then sense across the world, maybe there’s a huge tsunami or the 911, the two twin towers in America that were collapsed, and the outpouring of so much love and compassion by so many. We can feel that. So it’s what other tragic things or loving things that happen across the world do impact me. They impact each one of us, even though we’re way across the globe. So we’re in that place of interconnectedness again. We’ll have our heart opened, our outpouring of love, and that includes Mother Earth, too. The interconnection we have with her where we can have more reverence of life, I mean, reverence for the Mother Earth to treat her with respect. She gives us so much, so much abundance.
[00:24:33] CeeJay (host): Yeah. It’s interesting when you say that. I was thinking of when you are in that higher resonance sort of space that when you come across people that are not in that space and they’re quite abrasive, and sometimes the first reaction is like, oh, that person’s just a jerk. But then you just step back and go, wait a minute. You have no idea what they’re going through.
[00:25:00] Kate (guest): Yeah.
[00:25:00] CeeJay (host): So you can reach into some point of compassion within that. If you are in a higher vibration, you can do that.
[00:25:07] Kate (guest): Exactly. That’s a beautiful example.
[00:25:11] CeeJay (host): Yeah. And then even reach out to them through the heart space to try and help them in any way you can, or if they’re not ready for help, then you can just let them be.
[00:25:22] Kate (guest): I love that. That’s so true.
They’re not being a jerk and all that on purpose. It’s as you well know, I’m sure you know, it’s an indication of the pain and upset that they’re going through inside. And I would like to think more and more people are awakening where they know they need to do their own personal healing and doing whatever they can to heal. But in the meantime, there are some people who don’t know that there’s any options for them or they may feel like a victim. But yes, I love that you said that. CJ, we can offer compassion. And you know, they pick up on it unconsciously. Like if I’m driving down the street and there’s been a car accident, I will often just send out love and light to them. Or if I see someone in the grocery store and they have that frown without my saying anything but the energy is there, I will send love and we never know. It does impact them in a positive way. So I love how you brought that up.
[00:26:32] CeeJay (host): Yeah.
Considering this, how would people use these sort of understandings in a business practice and working with employees and their productivity? How would they do that?
[00:26:48] Kate (guest): That would be so beautiful if so many more companies did this.
I believe it starts from and some companies are some companies are conscious.
I believe that if managers can be in a place of understanding that we’re all in this together, that they can be open enough to know that each of their employees are very valuable and customers of the company are very valuable. And if we can try to see that we are actually all on the same plane, no one is better, no one is less than us. We’re all here. And if they can understand from a business standpoint of gathering information and the opinion of their employees and if they’re open enough to listen to it, to have the open heart and open mindedness, to really consider the feedback or the input or the ideas of their employees, and then taking that into consideration and recognizing that we are interconnected and how I, as a supervisor, treat my employees, if I treat them with kindness and acknowledge their great work, that they will probably show up on a higher level of being happy to work versus abrasiveness. And I’m the boss and you have to listen to me and I know everything and you don’t. Why? Because I’m the supervisor. Wow. A great way to alienate people.
[00:28:35] CeeJay (host): Yeah.
[00:28:36] Kate (guest): If we can honor whatever another person shares with us, recognize we are interconnected, they too have valuable ideas. And I also think that the whole idea that every person has certain unique skills and talents. And so if you have, say, eight people in a department, one person has this skill, another person has that they all have different skills. As a synergy, it all comes in beautifully together and again, honoring and respecting where that person is coming from. So in my belief, that would be one way to really support having a healthier conscious business.
[00:29:24] CeeJay (host): Yeah. Excellent, excellent. I think conscious businesses are on the rise for sure. I mean, we need more and more people to be interconnected and aware and empathic towards each other I think helps a lot. And that way people’s work day is a lot less stressful, definitely, because there’s a lot of things that got to get done in a day. And if you got another thing on your back, it’s just a bit harder. So when you have this relief with this understanding and connection, then yeah, all for the better.
[00:29:59] Kate (guest): Totally.
[00:30:00] CeeJay (host): Yes. So what does humanity’s current evolutionary leap have to do with the Age of Aquarius?
[00:30:08] Kate (guest): The current evolutionary leap that we are going through right now has to do so much with the whole Age of Aquarius. The answer to that question is we need to look at the whole of humanity since we started on this planet.
It is very normal. It is the way it is the universal law that humanity and Mother Earth, by the way, goes through evolutionary shifts from time to time. And part of that includes a change and a more positive shift in consciousness. So we have been for the last 2000 years in an Age of PISCES. So within the context of what context of where I’m talking right now, the Age of PISCES really is about competition and male dominance and anger and aggression, war and that there is separation between everyone and that men and women are not the same and this is no longer working for us. It’s been a 2000 year process in PISCES but it’s all actually in the stars, astrology, astrologically and universally it’s normal. It’s just what happens. We are now moving into the Age of Aquarius. But in order to and the Age of Aquarius, its characteristics are understanding. We are interconnected. There is a unity, consciousness that men and women are equal, that all races and genders and cultures are all equal. And there’s collaboration, there’s kindness, there’s harmony, there’s peace, there’s love, there is a higher sense of respect and reverence for life.
But in order to get there, this is true. Whether it’s this evolution or a tree that loses its leaves. In order to have the new come in, the old needs to be brought up to the surface, to be looked at, to be dealt with, to be processed, to be healed. And so there’s this stage in between the PISCES and Age of Aquarius where we are right smack in the middle of the chaos. It’s kind of like the chaos before the storm. I’m sorry, the chaos before the calm.
In order for the new to come in, the old needs to be resolved and healed. So we are so much in that chaos. But the good news is that this evolutionary shift is leading us into the Age of Aquarius. And this is why, I believe this is why we’re seeing so many more people starting to question, well, why is there so much upheaval on the planet? And how can I raise my vibration? And, you know, in recent years, relative to all of humanity in recent years, we’re recognizing that we are interconnected and there is this concept of oneness that was never there before. So little by little, this is seeping in. And the good is that the Age of Aquarius will come in, but we have to go through the cleansing process first, if that makes sense.
[00:33:57] CeeJay (host): Right. That’s what’s going on in our world now, which it seems like nearly every day, the news is just like bizarre and awful and strange.
[00:34:09] Kate (guest): Totally.
[00:34:14] CeeJay (host): Okay, so considering all that, how do we save ourselves and humanity? And how do we make the world a better place? I mean, raising our vibration is obviously the way, isn’t it?
[00:34:24] Kate (guest): Yes, raising our vibration is one way a lot easier said than done, I totally realize. So I will share just very briefly to answer that question, my latest book called Humanity’s Cry for Change, which addresses the very thing we’re talking about. How can we navigate this world of such chaos? And yes, one way is to raise our vibration, but that’s not always easy. If a person is in great pain, hopefully that they can recognize that there are ways to deal with it. It depends on what’s going on in their life. But there’s counselors, there’s therapy, maybe just talking to a good friend or a coach, working through. And whatever the pain is, whatever the challenge from trauma from childhood, if they’re ready to deal with it and to do whatever that healing, doing their personal work is key. So imagine if 100,000 people or 100 million people or a billion people on the planet did their own interpersonal work.
They would feel better. And then of course, this all adds to the collective consciousness, which makes for positive to help along the shift into the new age, the new Earth. So one thing is doing that personal work and that will help then naturally lead to having a higher vibration. And again, higher vibration represents love and respect and kindness, not just to others, but also to ourselves. How often do we talk kindly to ourselves?
[00:36:17] CeeJay (host): Exactly.
I’ve pulled myself up on this one. I was like, if somebody spoke to me like I had spoken to myself in the past when I let that happen, I’d probably get up and punch them.
Not going to let you get away with talking to me like that.
[00:36:37] Kate (guest): Totally, absolutely. And people will say there’s been many spiritual teachers, and I truly believe this is true. The reason there’s so much war on the planet is there’s war within ourselves. How often we do fight within ourselves? How unkind are our words? What is our self talk like? So again, going back, how can we shift? We shift first within ourselves and all of that adds then to the collective consciousness making that shift. That’s why I’m really encouraged because I think more people are awakening to this truth.
[00:37:22] CeeJay (host): Oh, definitely. A lot of these things, these ideas, these concepts, over time, I see them being embraced by a lot more people. And one of my measures of that is if I jump into transport and the driver starts talking about what I’m thinking about, I’m like, yeah, good, how’s your day going? Well, this is what’s happening for me. I’m like, well, excellent.
So these things are becoming the norm and that’s pretty much the basis of my whole podcast, is like normalizing all these things. You know what, I’m making it so everyone gets it, and I’m sure more people are getting it, which is great.
[00:37:57] Kate (guest): Yeah, I would like to think that.
[00:38:00] CeeJay (host): I’m certain of it. That’s the reason why I’m doing this work. I see that there’s more magic in the world and more love and more people connecting. So that’s a good thing.
[00:38:09] Kate (guest): Yeah, that’s beautiful. Absolutely.
That’s very passionate about sharing the message of my book.
[00:38:16] CeeJay (host): Yeah, for sure.
[00:38:17] Kate (guest): I’m the only messenger. There’s so many great messengers, excellent leaders and people like you and so many other podcast hosts who are offering extremely wonderful, loving, high conscious pathways so that we can make a shift on our planet. Yeah, and I believe it’s possible. I’m very optimistic.
[00:38:40] CeeJay (host): Yeah, for sure.
Okay, so why do challenging times result in personal growth? Can you give us any analogies around that? I mean, you’ve actually written that it’s sort of like going, from the ashes come the gifts of rebirth. Can you talk around that?
[00:38:58] Kate (guest): Yes, around I’m sorry, I didn’t quite get your question about the rising from the ashes.
[00:39:04] CeeJay (host): Okay, so can you explain why challenging times result in personal growth for people and how the analogy is like rising from the ashes?
[00:39:14] Kate (guest): Oh, thank you. Yes, absolutely.
Unfortunately for most people, we will not move to make a shift or a change unless we are in great pain.
And it takes that pain, it takes the challenges for us then to say no more. I like so many people on the planet. When I was younger, it’s like I shared at the beginning, I could not handle being so anxious and frustrated. I knew there had to be a better way, and that was the impetus for me to make a shift. I started to take action steps, but it’s human nature to kind of stay in the same and maybe it’s painful, but when it becomes really painful, that could be when we’re like, no more. And it is sort of like the analogy of rising from the ashes into the phoenix, the ashes representing the depth of pain or the dark night of the. Soul. There’s so much pain and there’s like it is a shift. I can’t do it anymore. I’m going to make a change. And as we do and takes a lot of courage, as we can make that shift, as we delve into the depth of who we are and recognize that, yes, I can shift, or maybe we don’t know if we can, but in any way as we can, we rise up into actually a lot of inner healing.
Everything is energy.
[00:41:01] CeeJay (host): Yes.
[00:41:02] Kate (guest): Whether it’s our thoughts, our words, our interactions with people, it’s all energy. So when we can work through what I’m describing right now is on an individual level, but what I’m describing is also so true on the humanity level, collective consciousness, we’re actually going through the same thing. It’s that shift, that pain. It needs to be brought up. And as it’s brought up, we can heal it, embrace it, and that’s what helps to release it. And in our personal self, as we release it, then we go into being the phoenix and having the freedom of flight, of lighter energy within ourselves.
[00:41:49] CeeJay (host): Right.
[00:41:52] Kate (guest): It’s pretty powerful. It takes a lot of courage.
[00:41:56] CeeJay (host): I’ve been through quite a few experiences of that myself, where life has gotten me to a point where I felt so cornered that I had to break out and make massive change.
Who knows what would have happened? But it didn’t. So I’m glad that I’m here, but sometimes we need to go through a bit of hell to get to heaven.
[00:42:20] Kate (guest): Exactly.
To me, it’s the analogy of completely breaking down. Like a caterpillar completely breaking down. Then it can become that beautiful butterfly.
[00:42:35] CeeJay (host): Yeah.
[00:42:38] Kate (guest): And it’s not easy. It’s very painful. I’ve gone through several episodes in my life, complete breakdown. But as a result, I had healing and I became energetically, lighter. I felt lighter, I felt better. I also had more insight to who I am. I got to know myself better.
[00:43:06] CeeJay (host): Yes.
[00:43:07] Kate (guest): It’s called, well, personal expansion and growth.
[00:43:11] CeeJay (host): That’s it. Yeah, exactly.
[00:43:13] Kate (guest): Not necessarily easy. Right?
[00:43:15] CeeJay (host): But yeah, true.
Can be, but not necessarily, as you say, you were saying before, it’s like vibration, raising your vibration. I’ve always think of that more like frequency. What if your frequency changes and then you’re tuning into a better frequency?
[00:43:34] Kate (guest): You know, it really is that’s, again, a great question. CJ, when we raise our vibration, we are actually at a higher frequency.
[00:43:47] CeeJay (host): Yes.
[00:43:48] Kate (guest): How it works, and you probably know all this, but how it works is everything is energy.
And energy by its very nature moves. And it oscillates. And so when energy moves, it moves at a certain level. Or another way to put it is when energy moves, it is at a certain frequency.
So vibration is the sense of movement, and how fast or slow it goes is the vibration. So really, the emotional vibrations of love and respect and kindness is actually at a higher frequency. So it moves faster and then emotions oh, frustration, sadness, jealousy, anger, fear, depression. They are all of a lower vibration, right? Lower frequency.
[00:44:48] CeeJay (host): Yeah, definitely.
Depending on which one you tune into. Is what you get really?
[00:44:54] Kate (guest): Truth, it really is. What we focus on gets bigger.
[00:44:58] CeeJay (host): Yes, that’s it. The universe is all about expansion, it seems. And it’s like it’s reflecting back what we asked for.
So I try to ask for better things.
[00:45:08] Kate (guest): Exactly.
[00:45:09] CeeJay (host): Kick out the inner jerk. Don’t let them talk.
So why is self care so important and how does it contribute to the betterment of humanity and society?
[00:45:24] Kate (guest): Yes, self care is so essential, and it is not egotistical, it is not selfish.
I always tell my clients and audiences how wonderful it is to have self care. The more we have self care in a healthy way, the more we feel better, we feel more empowered. And as a result, the people who are around us can better receive our gifts and talents. We are just more available.
I always like to use the analogy of a pitcher of water. So imagine having six empty glasses and then a pitcher of water, and this pitcher is full of water, and then I pour into each of the six glasses and then I don’t have any more in the pitcher.
How am I going to fill any more glasses of water in the future unless I fill up that pitcher? So to me, self care means to fill up that picture. And I know so many people are conditioned to think that if I think about myself and I take care of myself, I’m being selfish.
But in fact, the more we can the more we actually can give to others. So it really certainly everything is on a spectrum. So if we do only self care and never give to others, then that’s out of balance. But if we’re here giving and never having self care, we’re going to run out and we’re going to be exhausted.
[00:47:17] CeeJay (host): That’s right.
Yes. I think we’ve all been people pleasers at times, and we’ve also learned the adverse effects of that and how it doesn’t really help us in our own personal growth. So that’s a really good point. Yeah.
