Trusting your choices
Trusting your choices
How can you tell if you are making the right decision? Listen here where I talk about the meaning of having a hard time in making choices and the beauty of being able of dropping into your inner core. I'm inviting you to move forward in an intentional, empowered way. All too often, we give our power away by deferring to other people for advice rather than listening to our inner voice. If you take the time to focus on what feels right for you and trust the universe is supporting your journey, magical things will begin to happen! If this resonates and you'd like further support in bringing this idea of boundary work into your everyday life, I’m launching my new course “Boundaries 2.0” which will walk you through steps of managing your energy, so that every day can be one of thriving. This 3-month journey covers topics which will help you build an unshakeable confidence and show up as you deserve; with no more being triggered by those around you or feeling like something is stopping your progress towards success! All it takes is learning the skills for setting boundaries within yourself so that your power isn't taken away from you. Allow this program to be life-changing for you; start embracing who YOU are today! DM if you like to find out if this program is right for you. Click on link on link below for more details👇 https://bit.ly/catkabira_boundaries2 Join me on this journey of living more richly with better boundaries and discover how to manage your energy body so you can truly start thriving. #catkabira #catkabirayoga #energyhealing #choices #boundaries #energybody #thriving #power #onlinetraining #selflove #strength #beingpresent ##healing #energetics #practitioner #yoga #grounding

The Power of Sadness: how allowing yourself to feel can strengthen your energy
The Power of Sadness: how allowing yourself to feel can strengthen your energy
My question to you today is “what is your relationship with sadness?” Watch my video where I talk about what is like for highly sensitive people to go through the spectrum of feelings that we live and how when we try to mute or numb out those feelings, we are actually doing a disservice to ourselves. As an artist at heart, my healing path wasn’t medical or scientific; it was artistic as my art was fed over the years in a range of emotions from anger, rage, sadness, despair and loneliness to joy and enthusiasm. If you sit long enough with your feelings through meditation, you can actually see how you are constantly changing, how many emotions are running though you and if you are attaching to them. One of the tenants of the work in energy healing that I’ve shown people over the years is ‘how to actually be with your feelings”. If your deny your feelings or try to numb out emotions, suppressed emotions turn into deeper currents that actually don’t get to move, they get stuck and frozen. This is exactly what I love about art, whether you are singing, dancing or playing music, anything that allows them to have expression will help those deep currents move as you are allowing yourself to ‘be with your feelings’. A fear that my clients have had and myself as well is: “Am I worthy or able to hold space for others if I had so much happened to me?” This is actually one of the powers that I have, nothing shocks me, I can be with someone in their pain as I know what addictions, despair, grief and even losing yourself. I am curious what is your relationship with sadness; do you make room for grief in your life? There is an art in allowing some tenderness and compassion in being with your sadness and feeling all those deeper edges I invite you to be courageous and make space to allow yourself to feel all the textures including sadness and anger in your life, instead of resisting them. That’s where the magic happens, when you allow those emotions to be there, making them comfortable enough to rest and transform. I have found that when I started allowing myself to feel whatever was there, that suddenly my capacity expanded and strengthened my energy field and my ability to have boundaries. There’s beauty in being able to hold the totality of the whole experience and expand your capacity to feel, allowing the whole flow to expand; making space for more life, more power and also more capacity for joy. If you like to learn more about self-healing, including tools to be more present, grounding and setting boundaries, I offer a variety of online courses as well as one on one energy healing sessions. Contact me at cat@catkabira.com for more info.

Working with addictions… Learning how to be present and know what it is really going on
Working with addictions… Learning how to be present and know what it is really going on
Today I am sharing with you some important points on dealing with an addictive personality, from my own experiences. While a lot can be said about healing my past and the recovery path involved, including how to handle past pain and how to transform trauma; learning how to be present is really key. When you are truly present you will also surprisingly learn how to allow and enjoy pleasure in your life. Many times when you are binging on food, alcohol, sex or drugs, there’s a lack of presence meaning you are not actually aware what’s happening; you stop feeling and not actually there. When you hone on the other side, such as the case of eating disorders, you actually stop allowing yourself to taste or enjoy your food. Watch my video where I discuss tools that have helped me being present, which in turn will allow you to let yourself receive and absorb the good things, especially for those of us who are highly critical. When you ‘keep your presence’ you will also be able to realize what is really going on and determine what you really need. If you like to learn more about self-healing, including tools to be more present, grounding and setting boundaries, I offer a variety of online courses as well as one on one energy healing sessions. DM or contact me at cat@catkabira.com for more info. It is my wish for you on this New Year that you are feeling cozy wherever you are!

Energetic Boundaries
Energetic Boundaries
I’d love to talk to you briefly about energetic boundaries. Watch my video where I share some points on setting energetic boundaries. When  you’re unconsciously invading someone else’s energy field, it may be  because you are feeling unsafe or insecure. It’s simply a coping  mechanism where you start tracking others to feel safe. In my  work as an energy healing practitioner, it was essential to learn to  manage the parts of you when you sense the energy of others; otherwise  you’ll start feeling bombarded, scattered and drained. Another  point is to consider if is it ok when you are receiving a healing  session to pull the energy of others into your session? In general, you  can’t do healing work on someone without their permission. When  you are in a situation, where you are dealing with a challenge with  someone and can’t ask them for their permission, you can ask permission  to their spirits and even if they say no, you can still look at the  impact that you are having in your energy field and viceversa, the  impact that they are having in their field; so you can work out that  piece. For example, if you feel estranged with someone and you’re  not sure why and it really hurts your feelings, you can ask their  spirit what is going on and heal the relational field as it DIRECTLY  impacts you. Likewise, it is not appropriate or ok to think that  you can go fix them or heal them, without their permission, so they can  behave in a way that you want them to. Respecting energetic  boundaries when you are doing work is essential, as well as asking  permission when you want to work on someone’s energy field. If  you like to learn more about the world of energy healing, grounding and  setting boundaries, I offer a variety of online courses as well as one  on one energy healing sessions. DM or contact me at cat@catkabira.com for more info.

Developing and Respecting Your Intuition
Developing and Respecting Your Intuition
Today I’d like to share some tips on developing and respecting your intuition. Watch my video where I talk in detail about the importance of trusting what your body is telling you, recognizing the signals of what feels right and developing self-trust; among other topics that will help you feel more grounded and start creating boundaries that help you be more connected to your intuition and empower you tome the right choices. Sometimes our body responds with fear generated by old trauma or old conditioning; which makes it important to have self trust on what doesn’t feel right in the present moment. So self trust is essential in respecting your institution and perceive the distinction between old trauma and what doesn’t feel right in that precise moment. Learning how to develop your own inner psychic wisdom will greatly help you in discerning what is right for you and where you need to go instead of doing something because someone else suggested it. By allowing the opinion of others override what actually feels right for you, you are actually giving your power away. When you take the time to turn into possibilities, you will start sensing different timelines and realize that you can create a whole different story and outcome in your mind. This is exactly where we want to discern between the mental feeling or the imagination versus visualizing what actually is happening and grounding yourself, so you can make better decisions for yourself according to your true needs. I invite you today to start respecting your intuition in your personal life as ignoring it can actually have ripple effects in other aspects of your life. Learning to respect and develop your intuition will help you to create self-trust and empower you to make the decisions of what is truly right for your current needs. In the work that I do with my clients and online courses, we explore tools and techniques that help you sense your energy body, bring awareness to your intuition and recognize your true needs. If you’d like to explore more about this topic and curious about the world of energy healing, please DM or send me an email at cat@catkabira.com. Seeing you much love from Bali! #catkabira #catkabirayoga #energetics #energyhealing #intiuition #empowerment #self-healing #energysession #healing #boundaries #grounding

Addictive Personalities: How do we start to work with our addictions
Addictive Personalities: How do we start to work with our addictions
A topic of interest that has come up lately, both personally and well with my clients is: ‘What does it really mean to have an addictive personality?’ There’s a lot of judgement about being addictive and how I’d love to break down for you is to consider if what you are doing repeatedly is meeting your what you really need. An unhealthy addiction is when we’re reaching for something on a continual basis that doesn’t actually meet our needs; and also creates havoc, chaos and trauma in our life. When we are acting in a repetitive way there can be the belief in our minds that this time it will actually get better or different. Classic example is for people who are binge eaters, their valid need is for comfort and feeling safe. So when they are reaching for a particular type of food in hopes that it will create soothing but it will actually never satisfy the true need. Watch my video where I talk about the different types of addictions, what do they really mean and how to handle them. As part of my work that I do with my clients, both with eating disorders and addictive personalities, is how to start feeling in a way that they can handle it; which for most of us is a game changer to realize that “I can handle life.” Just like a wave, there are moments of expansion and contraction in our lives and it’s often helpful to realize that you can tolerate what is happening instead of trying to hide, change or numb out the feeling. Learning how to understand your energy field will help you determine what you really need, help you handle challenges and simply allow you to enjoy life more fully. Just like learning how to play the piano, learning how to work with your energy field is a skill that you need to develop. I offer private energy healing sessions and variety of online and in-person courses that will help you how to work with your energy in a whole different way. I invite you today to stay present with yourself, be more aware and find where you can sparkle!

When you are feeling fat, what is really going on?
When you are feeling fat, what is really going on?
My question to you today is: When you feel fat, what’s really going on? I personally know that feeling when you go “Oh my God, I feel so fat”; and also acknowledging that it’s almost a way to fit it given the level of marketing and manipulation done by the global diet industry to make sure that any woman is convinced that somehow there’s really something wrong with her whatever her body type is. The way through for healing from an eating disorder or where you feel very dominated by either your worth is your body or just dominated around food, is also to question: Do you consider yourself sensitive? Are you sensitive in a way that you feel a lot? Do you tend to feel more than other people with a more multidimensional richness or a depth in how you experience the world. Watch my video where I discuss in detail what it is like to be highly sensitive and how part of my work is helping you put a place for a context for how to manage your sensitivity in a way that empowers you. Speaking for myself, when I feel fat often times it’s not that I’m actually bigger, it’s I am feeling stressed. I have unprocessed emotions that I am not letting myself feel. It’s amazing how much emotion we store in our body that we don’t really know how to process: rage, joy, sadness and stress. Other reason can be that you are feeling other people’s energy, which can be a sign that you are having a problem setting boundaries and being able to discern what to take in and what to filter. The real truth is that you are taking other people’s feeling and emotions. I invite you to self reflect, when you are feeling fat, whether: If it’s some emotion that you are not letting yourself feel; or are you taking on someone else’s energy. If you’d like to learn more how can I help you work with your energy and set boundaries, contact me and schedule a free discovery call. You can train with me privately and I also offer a variety of fantastic programs on how to manage your energy work and how to heal from your eating disorder if you have one through energy work.

Boundaries and Anxiety: using your body as a tool for knowing YOUR truth
Boundaries and Anxiety: using your body as a tool for knowing YOUR truth
Recently while teaching in-person, one of my students experienced anxiety during one of our practices. The topic that came up is the importance of recognizing our natural boundaries and what’s the role that anxiety plays in choosing what feels right for you. Many times we try to convince ourselves of making our choices based on some mental overlay, like feeling guilty, ashamed or don’t want to be rude. I invite you to at least respect that initial feeling, where you might not even know why, but you can tell that’s a no for you. When you first take the time to pause, stop manipulating yourself, listen to your energy body and recognize what your system is saying, you’ll be able to investigate and accept that even if you feel uncomfortable setting the boundary you still have to. We are most powerful when we take responsibility for ourselves, but we have to know ourselves to be able to take responsibility. Watch my video where I explain the link between anxiety and boundaries. I dive into the importance of having the guts to actually respect what your needs are and what your space really wants. Are you curious about understanding where your boundaries are and/or someone else's? Come join me online or in-person! I have online trainings that will help you understand this on an embodied level AND... from Sept 18-24, 2022 in Ubud, Bali, you can join the last slot in my course ‘Connection’ to become an Energetic Practitioner of the Healing Arts. Part of the main emphasis in this course is knowing without a doubt your own boundaries and space as well as someone else's. Message me at cat@catkabira.com for more info.

What is your relationship with your clothes?
What is your relationship with your clothes?
I am curious today to learn what is your relationship with what you wear. As I am in the middle of packing and un-packing after being in tour, one of my favorite things is getting rid of clothes. For me, as my vibe is changing there’ll be a shift, it’s not so much about my body size but how I feel. Some clothes give off certain vibe; like the color will make you feel happy or an outfit will make you remember exactly how you felt last time you wore it. I invite you to watch my video and think about how do you decide what you are going to wear. Is your relationship with clothes telling you that you are manipulating yourself (your body) in order to feel good? This can be a sign that your inner voice is telling you that you have to ‘manipulate yourself’ to be ok in life, which is very exhausting. The relief to this situation is when you decide “Here I am and I am good as I am”. This is where the magic truly happens, you decide that you are going to show up as you are and you don’t have to keep making an effort to be ok because you are already ok. If you need additional support in understanding your relationship with your body and food, in my upcoming online immersion ‘Bliss Body Empower’, you will have the opportunity to be with other women like you and see that you’re not alone. It’s a month long journey where you’ll have the safe space to begin to heal and gain back your power so you can enjoy your life again. The program starts June 22, 2022 and I still have a couple of spots left.

Sensing Invisible Spaces: The impact of energy work in every aspect of your life
Sensing Invisible Spaces: The impact of energy work in every aspect of your life
Learning about energy work is a game changer when you work as a yoga teacher, coach, and even more when approaching your own pain. I've been passionate about energy for 25 years. What I've found is how to help you create your own energetic language to describe these "invisible" spaces that have a profound impact on your own body and life. My own motivation in working with energy was to find a way to heal my own eating disorder (it worked!) and also to feel safe in the world and reclaim my own power. As a teacher I found deeper value in helping others find ways to relieve their physical pain that also tied into their mental and emotional pain as well. The more I owned my energetic side, I taught differently. I understood how everyone needs to be approached differently and also what they are ready to meet within themselves. I found the power of my own softness and how that invites a softness within the other. There's so much I can share but my life would not be the same if I hadn't opened myself up to this deeper portal into who we are. I'm passionate about sharing this with you. If you’d like to deepen your knowledge in energy work, I'd love for you to join me for my upcoming Connection Level 1 Energy Training. The next online guided course starts on June 2nd, 2022. Learn more and sign up at: www.catkabira.com All sorts of goodies are there.

Finding a way to shift your energy back into safety and joy
Finding a way to shift your energy back into safety and joy
Just a quick reminder how essential grounding is. It was the game changer for me in my eating disorder recovery and it’s essential if you're a practitioner in the healing arts. It's what takes us out of anxiety and overwhelm and it's what helps us want to show up in life, engage with others, expand and explore, and be our full selves. Most of the tips and energetic practices I share are how to do this on your own - which is helpful to know. We become empowered when we can start to resource ourselves again. With that said, we're not alone and we are social creatures. It's through our relationships that we build self-esteem. And it's through community that we also cultivate a feeling of safety, joy, and ground. We've come out of a long wave of isolation (and some countries and cities are still dealing with it). It's also a trauma-response to isolate. "It feels safer to be alone than with others" can be a limiting belief. Remember how essential your tribe is and we all need that feeling of belonging. That DOES NOT mean that you're supposed to fit in or be like others. Be your own little quirky moody wild self. Know that you belong by just being you. Sometimes we feel like we've lost our community and being honest about that is essential. Name your needs to yourself and to the universe. You know I'm being real when I say you gotta talk to the universe. You can be practical and magical. That's one of the best superpowers there is. Sending you love on this freaky Friday. And if you want to join my next course as a healing arts practitioner - spaces are still left for Connection, which starts June 2nd, 2022. More energy empowerment and healing trainings are on my website: www.catkabira.com. All sorts of goodies are there.

Can you create a safe space with energy healing?
Can you create a safe space with energy healing?
Hi Friends, I'm curious about your relationship with boundaries. Part of creating a safe space for someone is to respect their boundaries, do you agree? How can you do this in energy healing? Creating space for this invitation without having an agenda can be a game-changer. In these energy trainings, what you will discover are the many different ways we have boundaries - whether it's a physical, mental, emotional, or psychic. How can you sense your own? Someone else's? Is how you sense or perceive different if you're going to work in-person with someone versus online or remotely? Where might it be challenging for you to respect your own boundaries or someone else's? What's unique in the energy trainings that I run is that you learn: 1) How to listen to the energetic field of someone else and 2) How to sit at the edge of their boundary and wait to be invited in. Whether you're wanting to become a practitioner in the energetic arts or are excited about deepening your awareness of what's really happening in relationship with yourself or others personally and professionally, this level one (and level two!) energy training "Connection" is a game-changer. The next online training starts June 2nd! If you're ready for a true extravaganza, take Connection online this July 2nd-July 7th AND join me in-person in Bali this September! Also for those of you who are ready to uplevel your ability to set your own boundaries, "Badass Boundaries" is happening June 22nd - August 19th. I'd love to see you!

The Power of Grounding
The Power of Grounding
Greetings from America! It feels so good to be visiting home. I keep extending my ticket. 😂 These lines from T.S. Eliot's poem feel apropos: "We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time." For me, feeling at home with myself has always been a struggle. I rejected myself, I rejected my culture. I rejected my own femininity and quirks. I often felt like an alien who didn't belong anywhere. Do you resonate with this at all? How much has feeling at home with yourself or an environment -or feeling like you belong - affected you? My passion is helping you bring what's unconscious into consciousness and to transform what was painful back into clarity and power. And to know yourself, and in that knowing, fall in love with yourself. I have so much to share and I'm so excited for Illumination, my online deep dive into knowing your energy body. I'm offering it March 24th-April 28th this year and I have a couple spaces left! And a special offer if you get in touch by March 18th.  This is perfect if you're new to energy work AND essential if you're a coach, yoga teacher, parent, psychologist, or simply someone who's ready to step beyond the lens of pain and see yourself and reality clearly. Sending you much love from the midwest and I hope to see you somewhere soon! ❤️ Sign up: https://bit.ly/illumination_ck #catkabira #energy #healing #online #training #energybody #chakras #healingarts #meditation #energy101 #energetics #immersion #trust #love #yoga #change #magic #grounding #home #illumination

Demystifying the Energy Body Week 1 Integration Call
Demystifying the Energy Body Week 1 Integration Call
What is energy? What is your energy field? What do we mean by the relational field? Now I admit I got really excited and gave you a lot of information.  So please, pause this, take notes, ask questions and re-watch as many  times as you need. Practices I suggested as mini experiments are: Sense your own energy field (can you sense the right side, left side, front, back, above or below?) Sense your own energy field in relation to others. Can you sense how it changes? Remember that you might not feel your field but you can sense - did you leave your body at all? Have your emotions changed? Your thoughts? Your posture? Play with following your feeling and intuition. When do you rationalize or overly-mentalize? What is your relationship to your own intuition?

Energy Healing
Energy Healing
How can you know if your energy practice is working for you? Watch my video where I dive into the topic of the effects of energy work when it’s not done properly.  I had few students who had been doing energy practices with someone else and started feeling anxious or getting headaches. They reached out to me with the question: “can pranayama practices make you crazy?” The answer is yes! If you are doing energy work without being grounded or without creating a connection to the source.  You are working with your body but your energy can actually get stuck in your body; with no direction where to go, there’s no flow down and there’s no flow up. So it’s going making you feel really confused, anxious and maybe even a little sick. In a lot of ways my energy school was developed after I realized what not to do and what doesn’t work.  Join me in my upcoming course ‘Demystifying the Energy Body’ starting on March 5th, 2022. You will get an introduction of what it’s like to have awareness of your energy system and the practices that will help you live more fully. I invite you today to discover the power in being strong and discover the magic of having ‘clarity’ regarding who you are and what works for your energy system.

What is true caring?
What is true caring?
I invite you today to consider the importance of managing your energy body to be able to help others. Listen to my audio where I talk about the definition of being an empath and the importance on learning how to manage your energy body to feel grounded and connected. If you have experienced trauma, it’s not always easy to trust and care for others as you may have defense mechanisms in place to protect yourself. As an empath it’s especially important to understand that acceptance and knowing how to handle your energy field comes before you can heal yourself and others. When you feel grounded and aligned with whom you truly are, that’s when magic starts to happen. If you have always being curious what managing your energy body and feeling grounded is all about, my upcoming course ‘Demystifying the Energy Body’ is the opportunity to initiate yourself in the techniques that will help you to honor your soul and start trusting yourself so you can truly raise your vibration and live a fuller life. The course starts on March 5th, 2022 with a welcome Zoom call. You will get online video lessons and audio practices to help you feel safe in your own body, plus the support of a like-minded group of people.

My passion… empowering you to understand your unique energy body
My passion… empowering you to understand your unique energy body
One of my biggest passions is empowering you to understand your unique energy body. In my trainings I teach how to manage your energy field so that you know how to thrive on this planet. Learning how to manage my energy field was a game changer for me. I had so much pain emotionally, mentally and physically growing up and was often so anxious and overwhelmed that I didn’t want to be here; plus I suffered from eating disorders. It wasn’t until I devoted myself to learning how to manage on a subtle energetic level, or what some call the ‘invisible worlds’, that I learnt how to cope and what my needs truly are so I could thrive physically and how to be around other people. This is what my energy school is all about: your own self empowerment to really understand yourself and find where you truly belong so you can start thriving. For those of us that we know we have that call to service and want to apply those healing arts with others, in my courses you will learn how to heal others in a way that has integrity where you thrive from it. It is my mission to provide you with the resources that will help you do your work without feeling drained or sick and have to tools to truly help others, whether in person or remotely. From 2020 onwards, I’ve successfully transitioned my courses to online format and it’s been so rewarding to see that we can actually heal ourselves and empower one another from all over the world. The subtle world of energy is so magical, that we don’t need to be in the same room to stay connected and touch each other at a deeper level. There’s an up leveling of how powerful and magical when you have an understanding of the energy field; how it actually can contract or expands when you embody and how it can shrink when you are weak. In my trainings you will learn how to deal with your own blockages and how to disolve them. You’ll find the way to deal with past pain and trauma, both from your own life and ancestral imprints. If you are ready to go beyond however you’ve been conditioned and indoctrinated and want to meet yourself in a more powerful way, whether you have an inclination to do healing work with others or you are interested in your own self healing, joining my energy school will change your whole world and the way you interact with others.

Dealing with Criticism without Shame
Dealing with Criticism without Shame
My question to you today is how do you deal with criticism without shame? Do you consider yourself a perfectionist? Are you highly critical of yourself or have history of abuse? Listen to my audio where I talk about my experience with dealing with feedback. For people that have strong self-esteem, when they receive feedback their reaction is neutral and they take it as it is. This is not the case when you have gone through trauma, the reaction can be emotionally charged. There’s a tendency to try to protect yourself or try not to hurt the other one with your reaction; which sometimes leads to feeling shame. In order to function in our society, it’s necessary to practice how to ‘receive feedback’ and witness our reality in a healthy way. In the work that I do, I teach how to create the space to heal your inner child wounds and deal with your feelings, especially the one of shame. One way to deal with it is to look at yourself at those moments and start loving yourself in those moments with the realization that everything passes. Knowing that you are allowed to make mistakes is a very important practice. There’s always the opportunity to make things better as well and repair things; sometimes by simply saying 'sorry' and acknowledging that you've made a mistake. I invite you today to bring tenderness to yourself and stop living as a perfectionist. This is just a reminder that you can witness the pain moving to your body and let it be like a wave, moving through.

Enjoy your choices
Enjoy your choices
How much do you enjoy your choices? Watch my video where I explore the possibility of allowing your energy to flow and be fully present. The theme of second guessing and self-doubt come up quite often when I’m working with my students, especially when there is so much deliberation. Then once that the choice is made, there’s a follow through instead of really just allowing yourself to enjoy the experience. Suddenly there’s a stopping of the energy and wondering if you have made right choice. As a result you’re never fully present and instead you become fragmented in your mind, plus you affect your energy system as well. This is a friendly reminder that there’s never a perfect choice. There’s always balance between black and white. Dark and the light both need to be there; that’s simply reality. And especially now, the essence of reality is surprise. Even when things don’t exactly go as you expected, there’s the gift of learning and appreciating what you had. Regardless the fact that you never can know what’s going to happen, you do have a choice. The choice to allow yourself to have it and trust it, literally letting yourself rest and enjoying it! I invite you today to enjoy your choices and stay in the feeling of pleasure. Go with your heart… Focus and let the magic happen!

Movement & Joy
Movement & Joy
I am curious to know what does ‘movement’ mean to you? Do you move your body and enjoy it? Watch my video where I talk about how we can start reclaiming that love of movement and feel freedom to enjoy our bodies. There’s joy in respecting our bodies and allowing yourself to play. For me enjoying movement is learning new things, being creative and getting out of my head. So it’s less about shaping your body and looking certain way; and allowing yourself to nurture your body. For me activities like surfing, ice climbing and hiking, where you are engaged with nature and it’s more about can I do this movement to get somewhere, are the place where I find pleasure of the process and freedom. I invite you today to discover pleasure in movement.

What does being healthy mean to you?
What does being healthy mean to you?
My question for you today is how do you measure health? Watch my video where I talk about the meaning of being ‘healthy’ and the importance of listening to your body. We all have been affected by the ‘diet culture’ and many of us have fallen into the ‘body shaming’ trap. I’d like to know your opinion because I’ve done it. At some point in my life, I was yo-yoing with my food and manipulating which ending being harmful to my body and not healthy. Now I realize that when I’m really taking care of myself, there’s going to be a range in body weight. As women we are meant to ebb and flow… sometimes because of emotions and other times it can be your hormones. To be healthy around your size is allowing some movement. Here lays the importance of not being too hard on ourselves and we can really attack our bodies when our body isn’t the problem. I am curious to know what health is to you and inviting you to use joy your barometer. Why would you do something that it’s not fun? When we are too rigid that’s when health turns into denial. We’re here to be moderated and balanced. Cupcakes and brownies are not evil; it’s all about moderation and balance. Do what you what you love and enjoy the movement! Let me know in the comments, how do you measure health and what’s your relationship with pleasure. Have a beautiful day!

Sitting Practice
Sitting Practice
Are you ready to bring yourself back into the beauty of the here & now? This is a friendly reminder of how supportive meditation is :-) Along with what I mentioned in this video, being able to observe your own thoughts is so empowering. It might help you stop believing all of your madness, you might see how quickly you go into old pain and future fantasy, and you can start to bring yourself back into the sweet beauty of the here and now. There's no goal to feel or be a certain way and it helps us stop that compulsive striving to be better or different. Let's stop thinking that we're broken beings. I know that you already know all of this - but it's one thing to know it on the mental plane and another thing to embody it. So whether you're new to meditation or have been more casual, give yourself the gift of 15-20 minutes a day to sit. If you do have a history of Trauma you may need some additional support while you sit otherwise it can be easy to go into overwhelm. This is where working with someone highly skillful helps you discover tools in how to integrate the pain of your past. My work tends to be trauma-informed due to my own history so when I teach sitting/meditation, breathwork, asana, and energy work there's always that lens of how to integrate your story and pain without going into overwhelm (and of course how to ground) in what I share. So if you do have a history of Trauma and are new to meditation, keep this in mind :-) Have a beautiful day!

What causes an eating disorder?
What causes an eating disorder?
While the diet industry (and fitness and "wellness") spends billions of dollars to ensure that you're convinced that you're not good enough as you are, and while the most ideal body type for each woman in each decade will be the one that's usually the hardest to achieve within her culture, and while there are high beauty standards that DO NOT celebrate the beauty of women but instead place time-wasting pressure...the causes for an eating disorder include these factors and also go beyond. There now is proof that there's a gene making one prone to an eating disorder. Also this is the way that someone really is managing much deeper pain through the abuse and control of food and harm to her body. Part of what I teach is how to healthily process your pain as well as learn that you can create a life beyond the trauma you've experienced. There are new alternatives available to you so you can now thrive. How to stop turning your anger inwards? Also I work with highly sensitives as I personally understand how challenging it is to be in the world and feel so much. So those of you with eating disorders and are very sensitive and have a multi-dimensional intelligence, I really get you. Check out this Minnesota Starvation Experiment I mention in the video - written by Kelsey Miller, 2016. There are a lot of resources - here's just one (you can google Minnesota Starvation Experiment too) • The Starvation Study that changed the world: https://uk.style.yahoo.com/starvation-study-changed-world-154000553.html Learn more about my story… https://www.catkabira.com/about.html . . . #catkabira #resilence #mentalhealth #anorexia #eatingdisorders #health #beauty #trauma #energy #training #feeling #supersenses #online #healing #connection #yoga #bodywork #immersion #boundaries #joy #happiness #energetics #healingarts #subtleworld # kabiraenergetics #energetics #remotehealing #heal #connect #community #support

Worth Beyond The Body
Worth Beyond The Body
Are you ready to break the spell and start feeling what’s underneath? Watch my video where I talk about the gift of self-awareness and finding your true beauty. Despite all of the embodiment practices, therapy and intensive work since 1997, there are still days when I still struggle on not seeing myself. You can be body dimorphic even when you are not anorexic or have an eating disorder. Especially for women, we are often off on our own self-perception. There’s beauty in truly seeing ourselves and realizing the ways in which we can treat ourselves in a more gentle and loving way. I was unconsciously hurting myself and still find duality in my feelings between healing or staying stuck and not stepping forward into a life that goes beyond food. The spell that I am working now is going beyond my mental level and go into the subtle, energetic depths of my eating disorders so I can own it differently. In our society, so many times as women we place our worth in our body shape and many times the ideal shape is impossible to achieve, leading to starvation and hurtling ourselves. Overcoming trauma and living with an eating disorder is a lifelong practice, which starts with gaining the self-awareness that will allow you to reclaim your inner power and live to your full potential. I invite you today to step into the space where you can start liking yourself and find real beauty and health.

Resilience & Healing
Resilience & Healing
Finding your own lightness to start thriving Are you ready to come back into power and learn how to feel? Watch my video where I speak about my role as a practitioner and the practice of energy healing. Building resilience for you starts from grounding and learning how to truly take care of yourself. Finding the place of safety in your own wiring and learning how to feel will help you start creating the self-awareness to overcome trauma and truly take care of your needs. As a practitioner one of the biggest gifts in healing is sharing the ways and practices that have helped me create the environment for being more healthy and thriving. In my work was a healing practitioner I teach how to build the foundation for resilience and getting back into your essence so that healing can begin, You do have a choice to thrive and not being controlled by fear which often begins with learning the concept of ‘reparenting yourself’. I invite you today to find and own your lightness so you experience the totality of reality and come back into your own power.

The Superpower of Feeling
The Superpower of Feeling
How do you handle when you start feeling more? I’m currently in the middle of running my course ‘Connection’ and last night one of my students remarked that doing energy work has led her to “feeling more”. There’s sometimes the assumption that when we do energy work and do certain practices, everything will be okay and that you will magically feel happy all the time. Watch my video where I talk about what it is really like to be in your own power and the importance on learning how to tolerate feeling in order to handle life. I invite you today to reclaim your power of feeling and find the beauty of having awareness in all aspects of your life.

Allowing yourself to be…
Allowing yourself to be…
Today I am curious to know if you feel like you can choose to be happy? Recently someone reminded me that I have the option to be happy when I was sharing some sad news. Culturally we have been wired to ‘behave certain way’. Watch my video where I share my thoughts on the importance of acknowledging our feelings and finding the space to be vibrant beings. Feeling comfortable in all aspects is not always easy; and it’s even more difficult to let go of social expectations and trauma in our lives. We don’t always get to choose our feelings and actually cause pain to ourselves trying to manipulate and fix your feelings. When you allow your feelings to start to flow and move through you, you actually start moving your energy. Magic actually starts to happen when you simply allow yourself to be and stop forcing yourself to feel certain way. Allowing yourselves to be grounded and have the awareness of where your feeling of power is will help you make better choices. This will give the insights to pull yourself out of the feeling of being stuck and realize that you do have the choice to pull yourself out. And the same goes for pleasure, allowing yourself to rest in the feeling of joy often is a practice that you must learn to embody, so you have that feeling of anchor sport that you can remind yourself to go back when you are going through challenges. One of your superpowers is learning what to do with what has been done to you and this is where the real work begins… We can’t stop the heart breaks, we can’t stop the surprises, we can’t stop death… But we have the power to receive beauty and stop turning towards ourselves with attack. I invite you to start turning towards yourself with love and care! If you would like to learn more about the world of energy, join me in my upcoming course ‘Connection’, your initiation to Healing Arts, starting September 26, 2021. You will learn in a supportive environment how to strengthen your energy field and how to connect to your own super-sensing skills among other topics. Only 2 spaces left!

Energetic Boundaries
Energetic Boundaries
Have you ever wondered what are astral, psychic and energetic boundaries? Watch my video where I talk about how your body projects energy, which is especially important during healing sessions. If you work with sensitive or people that have gone through trauma, this awareness to the energy boundaries becomes essential.  As a teacher or healer, having awareness of the energy field will give you the cues and information of when someone wants to be touched and whether they feel safe. Regardless whether is at work or in your regular life, a way to create trust is to respect boundaries, For those of you that are familiar with my work, grounding is a cornerstone of what I do. The biggest work that I teach is the more grounded and safe you are, healing magically happens on its own. Knowing there is value is waiting and listening becomes key for creating that space of healing. A feminine practice starts with the statement: “how do I create trust and safety”. If you like to explore more about the world of energy healing and learning my approach to grounding, my upcoming course ‘Connection’ starting at the end of September dives into how to connect to your own super-sensing skills and learning how to work with energy with others (both hands-on and remotely).

Creating Stability: Building a landing pad within yourself and why the environment matters?
Creating Stability: Building a landing pad within yourself and why the environment matters?
When wanting to heal and also thrive, we sometimes miss that if we are honest about what creates a feeling of security and safety -as well as stability - that in itself will provide the ground you need to expand. Also when the body is grounded, that's when it actually can begin to heal itself. I'm curious if you can be too hard on yourself? Sometimes we forgot to listen to our true needs, especially if they're different from what we expect. As I write this, we're still affected globally by covid management and some of us are in lockdown. What can we do to take care of ourselves? In this video I talk about the power of environment and why where we live (and work) does matter. If we're sensitive we will be extra-influenced by where we are. Or we may cope by numbing out so that we don't have to feel how we're affected. We also get to create our own "landing pad" which is essential to help you drop down and land wherever you go. If you get ungrounded often or find that you scatter or have a history of complex trauma or a chaotic background, it's essential to start to wire in this feeling of support and safety so that you get that inner rest that's so necessary. There's so much more that I can share but I hope this is helpful for you in some way. And, if you are wanting to dive more into energy work, spaces are still left for my Level One Energy Training: Connection!

The importance of being grounded in healing work.
For those that have taken any of my courses, you probably know that ‘grounding’ is a passion of mine. Watch my video where I talk about the power of grounding and the effect of your embodiment in others’ presence. When you have a certain level of awareness of your own wiring, your system will help land others in the same field of embodiment. Especially if you are a therapist or a healer, the ability of grounding yourself will create the gift of showing others that they can also find the space to create awareness and check in with themselves.

The Importance of Neutrality in Healing Work
The Importance of Neutrality in Healing Work
I have trained in several healing modalities and have spent a long time in trying to make sense on how to approach others during energy work. The big question that always comes up is: How much influence does the perception fo someone affect the field of the person being viewed? This is where the initiation in all my courses begins with ‘opening up to a whole new world’; letting go of your expectations and allow ourselves to truly see. There’s a lot of self-inquiry and self-awareness when it comes to holding space for others. The more you pay attention and drop in your body, you start reclaiming your connection with the subtle world. The beauty is that the body heals itself when it’s grounded and relaxed. Watch my video where I talk about the initiation that you get when you work with me. Beginning from the importance of neutrality and how can you create safety when working with others so you can meet them at the space where they are ready to receive.

Trusting yourself and inner discernment
Trusting yourself and inner discernment
How do you know what’s true for you? If you are a regular student of mine and resonate with my teachings, you probably have what I call a more ’open’ energetic system. This means that naturally you are more open and absorbent. There are definitely ways to help manage, refine and taking care of who you are; but you can’t change who you are. This is something that people who start working with me often wish that they weren’t as sensitive as they are. I invite you this sensitivity to be your superpower, especially now that we are bombarded with so much information. When we are more open there’s higher level information that you receive; discernment then becomes then essential. We are unique and knowing your essence becomes important, as what works for others will not necessarily work for you. The challenge then becomes: How can we keep coming back to ourselves when everything is so crazy, be grounded and still feel joy? This is when alone time and creating space for yourself to feel your ‘vibes’ becomes important. In my work I help people find their ‘truth’ and feel what is your body saying and speaking to you. Knowing your patterns will also help you know when you are contracting or expanding’ basically know your ‘true no or yes’. Being aware of the signals your body gives you will give your discernment of true meaning of certain things, like feeling nauseous when you are giving your power away and someone is crossing your boundaries. Other times, feeling nauseous may happen when you are moving forward and clearing some previous trauma. This knowledge of yourself and being aware of your tendencies will give you the edge on how to manage different situations, have a healthy coping mechanism and come back to your power. I invite you to join me in my upcoming course ‘Badass Boundaries’ where we will work on finding what’s true for you and adjust your energy system to find more joy in every aspect of your life. Take advantage of Early Bird Pricing Discount (until July 31, 2021) and start learning how to open your eyes to a whole way listening to yourself and knowing what is true for you! There’s always a current of light and love when you start trusting yourself! It’s time to own your power and own your truth.

A Message of love for those with suicidal thoughts
A Message of love for those with suicidal thoughts
What do we do when we feel that we don’t want to be here? We are in a global crisis where anxiety levels have risen and so have suicide rates. The real question is what do we do to take care of ourselves and still move forward with hope… Manage to treat yourself with love and care for one another. How do you meet yourself and have the courage to reach out so you don’t get stuck in the inner spiral? Part of it is reaching out and communicating that we need help. This is where having a support community comes into place. The support system needs to have certain level of grounding and compassion integrated. Movement can also help especially when it’s in an inviting environment and involves human interaction, such as dancing or going to a yoga class. Live interaction is more powerful than you realize, especially during current times. We have fragmented parts of our psychic that we need to make space for them. When there is no one there to listen and to validate those wounds remain there. When we allow them to flow and integrate, then it’s possible to start rewiring them and acknowledge their place. While we cannot change the past, it’s possible to integrate at an energetic level and embody those feelings in such a way that you feel safe and want to be here. To explain this, I often use surfing as an analogy: When you are in an ocean, the waves don’t stop, they change and you learn how to ride them or move to the side to stay safe. I invite you to find your way to engage, having first compassion with yourself and listening to the parts that are energetically stuck in your body. Especially during those times when you feel frozen, it’s time to stop shaming ourselves and reach to one another. One of our superpowers is being able to listen to ourselves, being able not to bypass or suppress our feeling and being able to reach out to someone in our community. Especially during these times, it’s important to realize that we are here for each other. We are not alone; we are in this together. It’s time to support each other in our life work, come back into your own love and own soul center. I am saying this with love and intensity because we can get through this… together. Reach out to the people that can hear you, that you can trust and resonate with your system. This is part of the work that we are doing in my upcoming Badass Boundaries Online Immersion. Learning how to work with your own energy system in a compassionate way with the support of a group community.

Leaving your body
Leaving your body
What happens when we are feeling? Is there a time when it’s healthy to leave your body or should you stay within yourself? In my work I help you discover what is true for you and provide you tools for grounding. If you resonate with energy, you can probably tell the difference when someone is present and give you their full awareness and when they don’t. The same is true for yourself, is there a difference between leaving your body, going into fantasy or having a vision? ‘Leaving your body’ in energetic terms presents the possibility to develop different personalities to protect yourself. My question to you is: Is there a time when it’s healthy to leave your body or should you always stay in your body? When you are grounded you will be able to stay in your own truth. There are ways that you can journey so you can stay connected with who you truly are. Our real power comes when we are conscious and aware of what we are choosing. If you would like to learn more about boundaries and techniques for grounding, join me in upcoming online course: Badass Boundaries A 4 week online course where you will discover how to make space for your own desires.

Hair and Intuition
Hair and Intuition
What is your relationship with your hair? “Intuition is using the inner body energy and heart to pave the way for your life.” - Matthew Donnelley Indigenous cultures have often connected long hair to improved intuition. My question to you today is… What is your relationship with your hair? When dealing with malnutrition from anorexia, my hair was falling and it took a long time to grow it our again. Getting my hair back is part of what has made me feel I reclaimed my power. I am very mindful regarding when I cut my hair and what products I use on my hair. Paying attention to your hair can give you a clue of how you are handling stress in your life. If you ever have noticed that the hairs on your arms stand up under certain situations, you probably understand what I am talking about. Being mindful of your relationship with your hair can be grounding and help you be more in tune with your body.

Time to reclaim your beauty and allow yourself to be seen
Time to reclaim your beauty and allow yourself to be seen
“Beauty surrounds us.” - Rumi Today I am switching topics and sharing some of my beauty tips with you. My question to you today is… What happens if we really take care of our health, what beauty comes from that? Maintaining one’s health in today’s toxic rich environment requires proper rest, hydration, paying attention to the source of our nutrients and being selective about the products that you use on your body. Throughout my own experience with eating disorders, I kept rejecting being beautiful and my femininity. It took a lot of energy work to allow myself feeling safe to been seen. It’s been a journey to appreciate my femininity and taking pleasure in feeling pretty. It’s time to reclaim your beauty and allow yourself to be seen. I invite you to take time to pamper yourself, nurture your heart and soul with love. Tell me in the comments, if you have any favorite beauty tips to share.

Allowing yourself to matter
Allowing yourself to matter
“Your silence will not protect you” - Audre Lorde Why would we protect other people’s feelings more than respecting your own? How can we be aware when this is happening to us? If you have been raised in trauma or have a history of abuse, you probably have developed survival mechanisms. Sometimes it can be out of fear that we don’t speak up. Allowing yourself to matter is not always easy. The beauty is that you don’t have to live in your past and you don’t have to struggle all the time. Watch my short video where I expand on the topic of protecting others feelings more than respecting your own.

Protecting other’s feelings vs protecting your own
Protecting other’s feelings vs protecting your own
How much do you protect other people’s feelings more than respecting your own? When reflecting upon the topic, you can be surprised on how many times you do it. It’s important to have awareness of our feelings and set boundaries so that we can show up as ourselves. There needs to be balance between caring about others and respecting yourself otherwise you can disregard your own emotions. Creating safety requires boundaries but also grounding yourself. Using your voice can be challenging but it is also empowering. You will start to owning ‘your reality’ and be able to communicate better. I invite you to sit with yourself and start being aware of yourself. Listen to my video where I walk you through the process of feeling your feelings, making space for your emotions and dealing with them in a healthy way.

Making Choices and Trusting Yourself
Making Choices and Trusting Yourself
Are you being a friend to yourself? Throughout my life I have noticed that I have a hard time making decisions. My mission had always been ‘what’s my real truth here’. The challenge begins when we start overthinking and overanalyzing. Before you getting into this cycle of overthinking, one helpful tip is to acknowledge your body’s first response. Respecting the flow within our own body, without judging or restricting yourself, will help you find your truth. Just by making space to stand as yourself, you will be able to be a friend to yourself. Your body and mind are not separate and there’s always a balance. Listen to my podcast where I discuss from an energetic level how being aware of your body’s reactions can help when making choices and the importance of trusting yourself. I invite you to start creating flow and expansion by listening to your body and trusting yourself. Learn more about my trainings and energy healing work at: www.catkabira.com

Feeling your feelings
Feeling your feelings
What to do you with our feelings and ride the waves of emotions? Empowering to bring awareness to what is unconscious During the work that I am doing with my current course ‘Illumination’, the topic of allowing yourself to feel your feelings keeps coming up. In my courses I often remind my students the power of being different and that you belong even if you are different. There is power in owning your real truth even if it’s different than everyone else’s. In the energy healing courses that I give we work on ways to own your waves of emotions. There is a big difference of what’s in the surface from going underneath. Instead of trying to judge it, manipulate it or fix it, I invite you to sit with your feelings. Allow yourself to ‘ride the wave’ of your feeling as a tool to get to know yourself better. That’s a way to find what it’s ‘underneath’; by sitting with yourself you will find what’s behind of what is making you feel the way you do currently. The work that I do, both for eating disorders and highly sensitive people, part of it is to how to safely feel what you are feeling and how to be comfortable with it; not only tolerate it but do the work of learning how to listening to yourself. Let yourself have a place… Just like in music, allow your feelings like notes to have a place and compose your own beautiful melody. I invite you to start walking in the present moment and allow yourself to find the joy of being you.

Eating Disorder Tip Make Space for you
Eating Disorder Tip Make Space for you
Listen to this episode where I share my insights on digging deeper and allowing yourself to have better relationships with food, eating patterns and portrayal of yourself. Your greatest superpower is how to be yourself and come back to your own essence. Part of my main work is grounding… how to feel comfortable in your own body. When you are ready to heal, your main focus needs to change from getting rid of things. I am inviting you to shift your perspective from restricting to how can I create more stability and support. While healing is certainly a process, an important step is to find pleasure in being alive and present. Celebrate your beauty today and reach out for aliveness! I am grateful for the pleasure of being alive.

Jealousy
Jealousy
How comfortable are you with being jealous? Is this something you acknowledge or do you feel ashamed by it? How can we use jealousy as a tool? I am curious to know your feelings on jealousy. In my video you’ll learn how I handle jealousy and actually have improved my relationships by acknowledging my feelings. When you sit with yourself and analyze what’s underneath, you actually allow yourself to know you. When jealousy and possessiveness show in your relationships, it can trigger feelings of insecurity stemming from your childhood. The simple action of acknowledging our emotions can be helpful to dissect our feelings and help us learn more about ourselves. I invite you to ride the wave of the emotion and feel the sensations in your body. When you start being aware of where those feelings reside within your body and ride the wave to the end, many times there’s a ‘gift at the end’. That pain is usually your power or message that will help you in your journey. There’s always a transformation at the end.

The Pleasure of Mistakes and Staying with Yourself
The Pleasure of Mistakes and Staying with Yourself
Do you feel shame and immobilized when you make a mistake? Do you allow shame to control you? If you are a perfectionist, making mistakes doesn’t feel comfortable and it’s easy to be hard with yourself. I was classically trained playing the piano and practiced hard to create ‘perfect’ melodies. Later on, I studied creative Jazz Improv that’s when I first realized that sometimes ‘mistakes’ can be turned into beautiful melodies. This is my way of inviting you to be present in every moment. Sometimes things don’t go as planned. Allow yourself to follow the flow and let the magic happen. Learning to turn any fallback into a teaching moment can be key for our growth. Staying with yourself will help you find peace and contentment and be who you really are. We are all human and being hard on your self will only attract the wrong type of energy. Be gentle with yourself especially when analyzing your faults. Having the right type of attitude will make a difference and bring relief in your life. I invite you to stay with yourself, play with those ‘mistakes’ and find the wisdom within. It’s wonderful when you start ‘owning’ your mistakes and realizing your place at that time. Let your heart settle, be gentle and stay with yourself. This will allow you to find new coping mechanisms and help you when the same situation arises again. Looking in the inside you’ll realize how to stop those external influences trigger you. Staying with yourself will help you find peace and contentment and be who you really are.

Freedom and The Man on the Boat
While resting and exploring on a tiny remote island called Gili Asahan, I met a sailor who invited me to run away with him on his boat. It made me consider the nature of freedom from my 40s perspective compared to the freedom I was searching for in my 20s. What’s freedom for you?

Weight Gain & Protection: How can we unravel to find another source of comfort and nurturing that is not food?
Weight Gain & Protection: How can we unravel to find another source of comfort and nurturing that is not food?
What do you do when you get caught up in emotional eating? What is a healthy weight for you to be in power and gain your authority? For those of you who don’t know me, I’ve had anorexia and bulimia for 20 plus years. I started considering myself fat when I was 4 years old and put myself on my first starvation diet when I was 9. For those of you that are recovering from eating disorders, you understand that part of it was an attempt for me to have some control in my life; and another part was restricting myself not to feel. I didn’t feel safe enough to allow myself to feel and dealt with feelings of rejection in an unhealthy way. In this way food can become a source of protection and it’s easy to get caught in an undercurrent of emotional eating. When reach out for food as a fix, it will only temporarily will make you feel better and will not meet deeper emotional needs. On the other side, if you are restricting yourself you are setting yourself up for a binge as your body will be feeling starved. It’s easy to get mad and the big work becomes how we can start turning to ourselves in loving and caring ways. This is where our inner work begins: How to start to unravel our feelings and stop triggering the victim response? How to recognize where your wounds are still hurting? What are the sources of nurturing that you still crave? How do we start to re-wire our Mother energy that we might not have gotten elsewhere? How do we catch ourselves when there is a compulsion? How do we allow ourselves feel safe enough to feel our feelings? How do we unravel to reach out for other sources of comfort and support that are not food? Now, don’t get me wrong, I believe that “It’s ok to eat and it’s ok to have pleasure in eating”; however it’s not a substitute for meeting our emotional needs. Food is nurturing and soothing but doesn’t bring emotional grounding and support that you we really need. The challenge is to create new patterns and realize there are new possibilities for protection and comfort. There’s a new world where you won’t be looking for a way to numb and protect yourself. I invite you to start turning towards yourself with tenderness and caring. Allow yourself to feel love, start listening to yourself and begin setting healthy boundaries. This is part of the work that I do with my energy coaching and courses.
