For many women who want to make changes the first step Kath suggests is to start by thinking about yourself each day. Take 10 minutes to exercise, take a walk, sit outdoors with a cup of tea. “Open for more creativity, more answers,” she said. “Schedule time on your calendar. Taking time for ourselves makes us feel better. There’s something that magically happens when you listen and honor that intuitive voice inside yourself,” she said. When taking those special minutes, ask yourself tough questions, then really listen and do nothing. She said it’s difficult to do absolutely nothing. It creates discomfort. “Sit with your discomfort,” she said. “That’s when the magic can begin.”
Once ideas begin to bloom, change is the next step. Kath has three tips to help make changes.
1. Tell the truth… You cannot change what you don’t know. If it’s not the truth, it loses its power.
2. Listen to divine messages… Instead of sending messages, take time to listen. You will be able to live your life more easily.
3. Trust yourself… Follow through, act on those messages. Honor the divine in your life.
Kath said to follow the bouncing ball. “Follow what makes you happy,” she said. Getting clear with your vision doesn’t mean that you must know how it’s going to happen. It is more important to know the “what” than the “how.” Be open to all the possibilities. “In our little box we can miss so many things,” she said, “like the funny things and enjoying life.” Lisa agreed. She said that children laugh about once every four minutes which adds up to about 600 times a day. Adults laugh less than 20 times a day. “Just as you are reaching out to your future, it will be reaching out to you,” Kath said. “Be open.”
There are certain things that can’t be changed. Kath is mother to a down syndrome child. That gift has taught her to enjoy and appreciate the little things. She said she got curious and opened up. She asked herself, “why is this happening to me and where is the gift in this. The same is true of the past. It can’t be changed. But you can look for the gifts, the lessons. She said to remember that life is happening for you not to you.
Kath offers coaching to all women. She said, “every woman should have a coach.”
