What Clogs Your Spirit?

 My dad had to have triple bypass surgery many years ago. His arteries were clogged to the max. To open those clogged arteries he had to have surgery. But today, he watches what he eats and exercises regularly to keep those arteries flowing.

Want to learn more about the 1 exercise that unclogs those arteries? Check out this free download from Kathie, Certified Fitness Trainer and Mindset Coach since 2002.


Just like our arteries, our spirits get clogged and we need to take an honest inventory of all that clogs our spirits.

Here are some things:

  • News
  • Social Media
  • Drama
  • TV
  • Gossip
  • Etc.

It is going to take courage to remove these blocks too.

My dad did not eat french fries after his bypass surgery. His surgery scared him so much that he simply had to have the courage to change his diet.

Our spirit clogs can be so very different though. It sometimes is not as easy to identify because it is not "life-threatening" yet.

I encourage you to Stop the Mind Screw and find where...

Trade Your Expectations for Appreciations

Have you ever traded your expectations for appreciation? If so how did that work for you?

Expectations are funny things. They hold seeds of entitlement. Ewww, I know that sounds yucky, but they do. It is all a mind screw!

Remember the people on the airplane who got so angry when they were asked to leave the plane that they fought everyone? Things even ended up in lawsuits? 

Yes, that holds seeds of entitlement. 

Would it have been better for the people to just get up, accept that they had double-booked the plane, and kindly walked off the plane? 

YES! Who knows why things changed? Perhaps there is a reason we do not understand. Get up and let go of those expectations.

Turn it over to appreciation and watch what happens. 

Perhaps if that had happened the person would have gotten off the plane only to find their long-lost love in the airport while waiting on the next flight.

Or maybe, they could have started up a discussion with someone while waiting that totally...

The Answer to Procrastination

"You can have the best plans, ideas, and thoughts in your mind and nothing will happen until you take action." -Kathie Owen

Action kills procrastination. Think about it. Have you ever put something off and then once you took a small action it just felt better?

Take cleaning a drawer or a closet. Take one small step towards doing the project, most times it moves you enough that you quit putting it off.

Personal initiative helps to take action. What is that? It is simply holding yourself accountable and just doing it. Even if it is one small action towards doing the thing you dread.

In the book Eat That Frog the author tells us to do the hardest thing first in the morning. This puts you into action and makes the rest of the day go by smoothly! Try it! See how it works for you!

Action is the key to getting started on any project, especially one you’ve been putting off for some time. Kill procrastination with...

Stop This One Thing Now and Watch Your World Change!

 "By expressing dissatisfaction a person attunes themselves to lifelines that draw them in and where things genuinely are worse than before." -Vadim Zeland Reality Transurfing

A pendulum is a thought structure that everyone thinks. It ONLY wants YOUR energy, nothing else.

But when we complain or express dissatisfaction we put ourselves in harm's way. Why? Because the pendulum is getting our energy and sending us into the lifeline that will lead to destruction.

What Vadim means by this is when you complain, or seriously dislike something, it actually sends you to a life that is worse than what you are complaining about.

This happens so easily because we are programmed to complain about uncomfortable situations.

This is also a great example of the victim-victimizer model from my therapist Shary Davis. We get stuck in the endless cycle of victim-victimizer (you know the bottom of the triangle). It is a vicious cycle. *See the picture at the end of this post.

Is Positivity Toxic? WTF!

I first heard this term about a year ago. It just feels wrong to me. But I truly wanted to understand this concept so I did some research. I now understand why and when someone would view thinking positively as toxic. But positivity itself is NOT toxic. What is toxic? FORCED positivity.

Who came up with this term anyhow? First of all, positivity is not even a real word. And second of all, if it were the two terms do not go together. It is a true oxymoron.

So what is toxic positivity? Well, I find it to be when something really tragic happens and someone tells you, "Everything happens for a reason." or "Just think positive it will be over soon." That my friends are forcing positive vibes on someone who needs to grieve. That is FORCED positivity.

Focus on This - Tony Robbins Teaching

 The 3 patterns of focus with Tony Robbins are as follows:

  1. Are you focusing on what’s missing from your life or what you are grateful for?
  2. Are you focusing on what you can control or what you can’t control?
  3. Are you focusing on the past, the present, or the future?



To be in the best state of mind/consciousness:

  • Focus on what you are grateful for.
  • Focus on what you can control.
  • And focus on the present.

 Anything else will put you on a lower scale of consciousness. Remember the consciousness scale in Power vs Force?

Any of the FORCE consciousness levels means that your focus is not in the “correct” pattern.

You can focus on the FORCE levels, it is your choice. But those will not get you into a place where synchronicities fly off the shelf!! It is a mindset shift.

Are You Resisting Time?

"Time, it is only your resistance to it that makes you measure it." -Abraham Hicks

 How do you resist time? Statements like:
  • It's going to be a long day.
  • Looking forward to Friday.
  • Can't wait for my vacation.
  • I have to work until 5:30 and it's only 2:00.
  • Monday is here already?
All of the previous statements resist time.
What about the things you enjoy? Did you know that is also resistance to time?
  • Weekends fly by.
  • I wish I could stop time while I am on vacation.

Resistance to what 'is' can speed up time as well.

A wise person once taught me how to release that resistance to time.
Here is how you can do that:
  • Have you ever watched water boil?
  • It takes a while for it to boil if you are watching it.
  • "A watched pot never boils." is that statement.
 Well, if you want to speed time up, stop the resistance or stop watching the water boil. 

If you want to slow time down watch your water boil - or pay attention to every little thing.

Trust that everything...

All Truths Are Half-Truths

All truths are half-truths. -The Kybalion
When I first heard this I had to think about it for several days. But consider the options it opens up. 
It helps to understand others and be more compassionate. When we realize that our truth is not 100% fact it can help when talking to others.  
More words of wisdom: "I already knew that." "I disagree." Do not serve you.
We live in a time where there is a lot of fear in the air. Look at this diagram:
Where do you fit on this scale? How are you feeling right now?
This is from the book Power vs Force by Dr. David Hawkins
Power is always an option but it depends on your truth.
It is best to be proactive, not reactive.

  • It is up to you to decide what you consider to be true. Remember all truths are half truths. But how does that truth make you feel? Consider that.Proactive thoughts come from a place of power, Thoughts...
