Artist Dates Ideas for Wellness

Artist Dates, What Are They?

Artist dates are a weekly commitment to take yourself out and do something that interests and intrigues you. They are a window for inspiration, rejuvenation, and remembering how to play—something most of us forget to do as adults.

Listen to the episode here:



An artist date might involve taking a trip to a local art gallery to peruse at your leisure for a couple of hours. It might involve setting aside an afternoon to cut interesting words, phrases, and images out of magazines and create a collage for the fun of it. Artist dates do not have to involve; creative endeavors (in fact, it's better if they don't)

As Julia Cameron, creator of; The Artist Way (and the concept of artist dates) explains: “The Artist Date is a once-weekly, festive, solo expedition to explore something that interests you. The Artist Date need not be overtly artistic think mischief more than mastery when choosing an Artist Date, it is good to...

Reality Transurfing on Guilt

Guilt is a tricky thing and most definitely a mind screw. It is imperative that you let it go or it will eat you up inside. Even worse the manipulator (aka victimizer) will eat you for lunch and spit you out.

We discuss guilt in the episode this week Transurfing on Tuesday.

Here's what we discuss in today's episode: Transcript and more linked right here: 

  •  Guilt is pure excess potential.
  • In nature, there is no such thing as good or bad. Like the quote says, "There is no such thing as good or bad but thinking makes it so." Shakespeare
  • The payment for feelings of guilt will always be punishment in one form or another.
  • Truth in the saying "Impudence is second happiness." Cocky boldness.
  • Feelings of guilt will always produce a script that includes punishment where you are conscious of what is happening or not.

The Zen Master "Is That So?"

Non-resistance is a gift of detachment. One of the best non-resistant stories I have ever read was the following:
Note from Kathie: This is not suppression or repressing thoughts of healing. Healing is a process and takes time. This is simply letting go of what the ego sees as having things a certain way. Healing happens. Read more on that here!
There is a story about a Zen Master named Hakuin who lived in a town in Japan. He was held in high regard and many people came to him for spiritual teaching.
Then it happened that the teenage daughter of his next-door neighbor became pregnant. When being questioned by her angry and scolding parents as to the identity of the father, she finally told them that the father was Hakuin, the Zen Master.
In great anger, the parents rushed over to Hakuin and told him with much shouting and accusing that their daughter had confessed that he was the father. All that he...

Can't Hurt Me - The Ultimate Mindset Shift Book

The first time I heard about David Goggins was when my youngest son Kody told me to listen to the Joe Rogan Show. Link to the exact episode here. This was in  early 2019 

Kody rarely listens to podcasts so this was a sign that I needed to listen to this one. And he was right I loved it!! 

Since that time I played one of his YouTube Videos at an OCuSOFT team meeting and discuss him from time to time in inspirational conversations.

But I just realized I have never read his book. What?

Yes, it wasn't until my interview with Natalie Kime of Wealth Wave (coming out Thursday, January 13, 2022 Link to it here: that I even thought to look at the book, even though that podcast episode was a promotional episode for the book.

Natalie mentioned in the interview that the book was in her top 3 and she recommended listening to it on Audible as there are mindset challenges at the end of each chapter.

So I ran down to Audible, got more credits, as I used...

Dance with Pendulums in Reality Transurfing

Today we discuss pendulums which are just thought structures that everyone else thinks, they are very contagious and only want your energy.

Best quote of the episode: "The secret of a genius lies in remaining free of the influence of pendulums." Vadim Zeland Reality Transurfing I-V

Listen to the episode here:


"Dissatisfaction and lack of fulfillment are the pendulum's favorite dish." Vadim Zeland Reality Transurfing I-V

So it's best to identify what these pendulums are and how to stop giving in to their destructiveness. Stop mind screwing yourself out of your power.
We talk about:

  • The weather is a pendulum - yes the weather is a pendulum and if you don't like what the weather is doing or complain about the weather you are sucked into the pendulum's energy.
  • The pendulum doesn't care - as we know the pendulum does not care about you. Bootsy Greenwood once told me that pendulums can be forced upon us. OMG is this ever right. Bad weather is forced upon us. But how we deal...

  • You radiate thought energy depending on what you are thinking be it positive or negative

10 Tips to Building Habits that Stick

The one secret to success is building a habit. Once you have that down you are set. That is the one secret that I teach in the Silver Wellness Academy.

You want to know the habit you are building is successful! You don't want to waste your time either. So today we are talking about how to build a habit and make it stick.

Listen to this episode here:



Watch the video here:


Here are 10 tips to building habits that stick:

1. Identify the right habits and commit to them.

It's easy to just say you want to start a new habit. But how will you commit to it? What needs to be done? Do you need to wake up at a certain time? How often will you commit to this new habit? 

Be careful with commitment. You can overcommit. You can also under-commit.

Write this commitment down. Promise yourself you will commit.

2. Have a plan.

If you have a plan and you know exactly what you are going to do it's way more likely you will stick to it.

Here are some examples of plans:

  • Do...

How to Stop Making Excuses

 Stop mind screwing yourself out of health and wellness. Here's how to stop making excuses and start to take action!

  • Did you give in to those extra donuts in the breakroom this morning?
  • Or are you procrastinating tasks for that big project?
  • What about hitting the gym this morning? Or even every morning for the last year?

We all make excuses from time to time. This is a simple habit we use to rationalize why we didn't follow through on a specific commitment.

If you've developed this bad habit of making excuses all the time, it might be time to start curbing that bad habit.

I was reading toxic positivity girl's stories a few weeks ago and of course, she was supporting the "excuse mentality" in a weird way. Typical, it was in true victim-mindset mentality.

She spoke of reasons why some may not be able to exercise. Honestly, it rubbed me the wrong way. So I decided to write this post.

Here are some REASONS why we make excuses and a 13-step process we can use to stop making...

How to Improve Self-Discipline

Improving self-discipline can help in your career, physical and mental health, and any dreams you may have. But as you probably know it can be difficult to cultivate discipline. So that's what we are going to talk about today.

Need help with self-discipline? Perfectly Fit with Kathie incorporates self-discipline into the mindset portion of the course. Visit here for more information now!

#1. Identify where you can improve.

Probably the most important thing you can do is identify where you can improve.

What aspects are your weakest points?

Grab a notebook and be honest with yourself. (Lying to yourself will not help with your goal of improvement) Besides this is just between you and you, why not be honest?

Do you spend too much time on social media? Struggle to keep focusing? Do you have a hard time saying no to others? There’s probably something that immediately comes to mind when you think about where you are lacking self-discipline.

#2 Determine what motivates you.
