GROWING UP, PLUGGING OUT

10 years ago, when I would sit down and have my morning triple-shot long macchiato, I would read the morning newspaper.

Now, when I see people reading the papers over their morning coffee, and I sit here usually reading something to do with quantum science (pretty much my go-to morning study topic for ages now, although I do read on many other areas most days too!), I pretty much feel like – ‘I wouldn’t even know how to do that anymore’.

To be a person who starts their day by filling their mind with the news, current affairs, local celebrations and woes.

Sometimes I feel like this simple shift in who I was and who I am is the single greatest indicator of why I just can’t engage in any more than a surface polite way with people who are not like US.

I’ve had relationships end over this.

Friendships fade away.

I’ve often felt frustrated with myself for not feeling able to stop being such a snob about it, for not managing to get out of my usual headspace and just connect with people where they’re at, for not putting my need to feed my soul aside for just a minute or two, or an hour or two, when I on occasion find myself surrounded by, well –

Normals.

The other parents at the school gate or in the playground …

The cashier’s chit-chat about how hard life is at the grocery store …

The women I was once such close friends with, who, when last I caught up with them, honestly just bored me to tears with their endlessly rotating conversation which went between husband stuff-school stuff-house stuff-kid stuff and then back again.

I don’t care.

I don’t WANT to care.

I used to care, apparently.

But then I woke up.

I’m aware of the possibly ‘I think I’m better, superior’ vibe which is coming through in what I’m saying here. Well, I feel self-conscious about it! So I guess it’s MY stuff. But I also think, for sure, people might read this and think, ‘gee Kat, stop polishing your spiritual crown for just a second!’

Or maybe your opinion is that I should at least GTF over myself and just be part of the conversation, when those conversations come up.

“Did you see such and such on the news? Omg! It’s SO BAD, an outrage, how could they, how did he, blah blah blah”

“Isn’t it TERRIBLE how high petrol prices have gone?”

“Can you believe it …?”

“Did you hear about …?”

“And then I said, and John said, and Martha said, and well, I just really think – !”

I don’t care.

I don’t WANT to care.

I don’t want to TRY to care.

And frankly, I’d rather poke my eyes out with chopsticks then have to have ANYONE in my life in any sort of ongoing sense who IS into this stuff.

Whatever I actually need to know about the news definitely travels into my consciousness at some point, but to actually spend my life focused on this stuff? Start my day with it? End it the same? Have it as a focal point of connection all THROUGH the day?

I’d say kill me now, but there’s no need, because the me who WAS tapped in to that life is already dead.

She left the building.

A LONG time ago.

And I think that sometimes … when I am doubting myself … when I feel worried that it is somehow bad or wrong to be this person, always wanting, demanding, NEEDING, seeking, so much more … I start to buy into an idea that I need to bring her back.

I tell myself that the solution (not sure to what!) is to plug back in to the system.

To learn how to smile, nod my head politely, talk like them, be like them.

Perhaps they’re happier … content? At peace? With who they are?

Maybe!

Well, the truth is, when I step aside from those occasional moments of fatigue or weariness at the never-ending demands of my soul, when I drop the emotional drama which at times creeps over me and makes me worried I’m NOT DOING LIFE RIGHT, actually I AM happy.

At peace.

Content with who I am.

And I know it’s aligned, the way I choose to live my life, unplugged, and who I choose to be!

Besides, let’s not pretend there’s a choice here. I am who I am. I can try to mask it … I DID try that … it did NOT work, and it also looked and felt like shit on me. I was a sad shell of a ghost-woman, whose eyes were constantly far far away. Only gotta look at photos of me to see how NOT okay I was back then!

But yet.

And yet.

And still yet.

I do question at times. Or I feel, perhaps, sad. That I’m no longer the girl who I used to be. That growing up and shifting eternally forward, being the person who is programmed to upgrade, who has programmed herself that way has cost me so many relationships.

It’s cost me marriages.

It’s cost me friendships.

It’s cost me the simple fucking ability to just be, in quite a lot of so-called normal social situations.

And I do wonder, is it right? That I have this quest which will never be met and that I just CAN’T with these people or things anymore, even when I think that I want to?

Well, mostly I don’t wonder at all!

But sometimes, sure.

The thing is though, I look back at that girl and she was so numb. So sad. So trapped in various forms of self-abuse and escape. So many things which had to be in place just to keep her head above water, keep her surviving in the wrong life!

This girl doesn’t need those things anymore … she’s not numb, and because of that she feels, sometimes, maybe too much.

She wants to cry for all that could have been and that she feels in some ways perhaps still should be.

She feels like she should somehow be able to be all things to all people, even though she knows that’s not true at all!

She judges herself a LOT at times! And other times is unapologetically and audaciously baring her naked EVERYTHING to the world!

She sees the superior /egotistical side of herself in gazing at people who over their morning coffee read the paper, and wondering how on earth they can be okay with that … don’t they have ANY desire to go within? Sure, maybe they’re then getting on with a day of soul-fuelled everything! But, probably not!

And then she berates herself for that judgement, who is she to decide which way of living is better!

But, she suspects … KNOWS, really … that these people are, for the very most part, not happy.

Not content.

Instead lost.

Searching.

But not even knowing they’re searching, not knowing that that’s what that feeling is, thinking instead that it’s a sleep deficiency … a wine deficiency … a substance deficiency … an escaping and numbing deficiency … or that they just need a holiday!

And she feels bad. That she can’t relate to them. That they can’t fill her up. That she can’t be content with them. She feels like she should try harder! Listen better! Be interested!

But,

They’re just not interesting.

And the truth is, that as much as she at times mourns the loss of the girl who she once was, that GIRL would now not be interesting to the woman she is today.

There’ll always be love.

There’ll always be gratitude.

There’ll always be acknowledgement, that the journey was exactly as it was meant to be.

But because there’ll also always be growth, no –

Never shall the twain meet again, even if they wanted to.

It wouldn’t work, and it’s not possible anyway.

It’s tiring sometimes, isn’t it? It can feel heavy at times … wearying … annoying … ‘why do I have to be like this, always searching, always wanting more and knowing it’s available?!’ It can feel like too hard work, and we imagine at times, being one of those Mums who just sits down with a cup of tea and watches the news, or reads a gossip magazine, or phones a friend and laments the state of SOMETHING …

And today I suppose I just came here to say, that it’s okay to feel weighed down on occasion, with the responsibility of all that you have chosen to be, call in, insist upon, and create.

It’s okay to feel like you’d like to take a day off and run away and work in a bookshop!

It’s okay to lament the leaving behind of the old you, the old life, the old relationships, and to wonder if you couldn’t have, if you shouldn’t have, if you should still maybe.

Because the thing you have to remember is … this IS the life you chose. It IS the one you were turning yourself towards long before you made it reality. It IS the one you want. And the vast majority of the time you never question it at all, how could or would you? Heck, the vast majority of the time you certainly don’t even notice what everyone else is doing or what the old you would have done, you’re so in your own bubble and flow zone.

But when you notice –

Or when it catches you and makes you think –

Or when you feel you need to QUESTION, that maybe you’re not doing it right, maybe you chose wrong –

Perhaps it’s just nothing more than that today is a day to question.

To wonder.

To notice.

To be UNCOMFORTABLE with who you are, for a minute.

Because the reality beneath THAT is, that when you then go within –

When you do some serious investigative soul interrogation as of course you DO, in order to make sure you’re being the right person, the answer is always simple. Clear. And precise:

This was always who you were going to be.

Yes, it was always going to ‘cost you’ elements of the previous you, and sometimes that’s painful. They don’t call it growing pains for no reason!

But imagine –

Just imagine –

The cost of remaining that old you.

Plugged in.

Unknowing.

Accepting.

Masked.

Numb.

‘Safe’ from her own SOUL.

Well. No fucking wonder they all harp so relentlessly on about the state of the world!

It’s either that or else having to face the truth of the horrible reality that you never became who you were meant to.

And God knows they’re not going to do that.

Just as you never did, back then.

And then one day you did.

And you knew –

I can never go back again.

That’s all.

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play.

MONETIZE THAT SHIT NO MATTER WHAT

{AND DO WHAT YOU WANT ALL DAY}

A One-Time Live Online Workshop with Katrina Ruth, on How to Make Money Anywhere, Anytime, With ZERO Dependance on Any One Platform, Program or Tool … Aka JUST BECAUSE THAT’S WHO YOU ARE … AND – With the Greatest of Ease

Okay. Imma gonna get straight up on your ass about what needs to be said here, because obviously SOMEBODY needs to hit the damn truth button on this shit!!

Straight up from the gate up, you do NOT make money because of Facebook.

Because of Instagram.

Because of email.

Because of ANY of this shit.

You make money because of who you are and what you decide and make NON-NEGOTIABLE, period, The End!

As you may be aware, in the last day or so Facebook and Instagram went down down down OH so far down.

After a few obligatory ‘stop the world!’ messages to my team and friends (which resulted in a serious convo with one of my soul sisters as to whether we’d now have to become porn stars instead), I got back to business.

The business of posting and selling shit on Facebook, which is admittedly a big part of what I do each day???

Nah … the business of being ME, because THAT is what I actually do each day, and also?

It’s what gets me paid.

Funnily enough, as is often the way with these things, just yesterday somebody was making smart-ass comments to me about how all the coaches would survive if there was no Facebook or Instagram.

“How would they survive?”, I asked myself.

“Well, I have no idea how THEY would survive but I sure as shit know how I would survive:

Very fucking well indeed, thank you very much, because that is who I AM”

Word to the wise:

A) I was making serious money long before I used Facebook for it.

Allow me to say it again for those in the back: YOU MAKE MONEY BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE AND THE LEVEL YOU VIBRATE AT.

Vibrate?

It’s an energy thang baby, a frequency shiz niz, it’s just who you ARE and how life works for you.

Handy hint —> the level of wealth you enjoy or moan over now is already just a direct reflection of your frequency, and expectations. It ain’t got jack shit to do with what you do, and it certainly is not a product of which tools are available to you.

It is a product of YOU.

When the socials went down today it was FASCINATING to me to observe the response that came through in the in-between-y bits when people managed to post something.

People worrying about how it would impact their business, or feeling in some way handcuffed.

This is crazy! It’s fear-mongering at its worst and it’s an absolute SHITTY mentality as far as belief systems around where results come from.

Do you know what I felt, when I realised we couldn’t use Facebook as normal for our biz stuff?

EXCITEMENT.

It took a minute to click in, but I found myself getting all wriggly and lit up with excitement.

I love a damn challenge 🙂

And since I also choose to believe that everything is happening FOR me, I also took personal responsibility for this occurrence.

Obviously FB and Insta had gone down in order to force me to finally pull my finger out and learn how to go live on YouTube.

But mainly – hell YEAH to the opportunity to get creative!

Probably taking the whole thing a little bit too far, as I worked my way through some sprints on the rower post HIIT weights session, I started to imagine what would happen if Facebook was TRULY GONE AND NO LONGER OF THIS WORLD.

I got MORE excited with each second that passed (which makes me remember how damn BORED I get as soon as I know how to easily do something aka make money all day err day on Facebook), and I also found myself AUTOMATICALLY GOING INTO ZAG MODE.

Zag?

You know, like ‘When They Zig you Zag’. A classic, if ever there was one!! Thank you Dad, for always having all the BEST books on your bookshelf for me to start reading from 10 or 11 years of age!

See, I have a belief system which works rather well for me and I guess is just part of who I am –

I believe that things ALWAYS work out perfectly for me, and are always done FOR me …

I believe I am always on path …

I believe I always make the right decision, so therefore I never have to beat myself up, I just wait for the lesson –

AND

(drumroll)

I believe that my outcomes are predicated only by my choices, and that there is nothing I EVER need in order to get or maintain or ONLY improve on an existing outcome.

It’s this mindset that causes me to wonder what TF it has to do with anything when people say things like they can’t be in shape ’cause they have kids or just had a kids … or ’cause they can’t get to the gym (for example)

And it’s also this mindset that causes me to KNOW that the money I make and the impact my soul work has in the world has NOTHING to do with what tools or platforms are available to me or working.

I programmed myself a long time ago to IMMEDIATELY swerve if something was no longer serving me or working for me. It’s this part of my mind which therefore right away started coming up with creative and imaginative solutions for how business would OF COURSE carry on (and improve!) with or without social media.

And it’s also this part of my mind which of course right away finds a way to monetize the damn thing and turn it into epic and highly helpful content for you, aka this workshop!

It’s just how I think, and who I am. I am simply unavailable for NOT moving forward, and nothing will ever ever EVER make me believe that I have to depend on anything outside of me for my results.

So why a whole damn workshop on the concept?

Well, it’s more than that, isn’t it?

It’s a mindset of believing that you always get what you want.

It’s a mindset of believing that everything always works out for you.

It’s a mindset of believing that NOTHING can stop you.

That everything is working in your favour.

And?

That you can monetize ANYTHING, any time you choose, and with no ‘requirements’ in order to do so!

I don’t have to tell you that obvs the outcomes you get directly follow and reflect your mindset and your beliefs!!

Here is what else, as well:

This is not just about making money any time, from any thing, and knowing that even with challenge or things going wrong you only THRIVE and EXPAND!!

For me this goes hand in hand with duh – I get to do all of that on my terms.

By having FUN, and being in FLOW, and with ease.

In fact, the more money the more ease!! #justhowitis

That I can literally click my fingers and money shows up for me, meanwhile I’m just over here doing ma thang.

Speaking of which –

I think it’s about time I shared exactly what I currently DO all day, yeah? And how I do it / fit it all in / honour ALL the areas, PLUS manage to spend so much time sitting on my ass doing sweet FA!

In other words … !

Let’s hang out together this weekend!!

Introducing:

What We Will Be Covering!

1) How to Monetize ANY Situation, Including But Not Limited To:

* When social media or any typically depended upon platform goes down (including examples of how I have down this several times, to the tune of tens of thousands)

* Hater situations (including examples, again multiple times, again tens of thousands of dollars)

* When you make a fool of yourself / something embarrassing happens or you screw up (also examples! also lots and lots of lovely moolah)

* When people ‘screw you over’ (ahem, we will talk about this) or desert you (also examples! more money!)

* Basically how to turn any and all life situations, moods, changes of the moon, emotional ups and downs, real life SHIT, to money!

2) Why the ‘When Shit Happens’ times are often the BEST times to make money, aka this is where I teach you what it really means to understand human psychology in terms of SALES, and the mindset of being an actual IN THE FLOW entrepreneur, who ALWAYS sees opportunity and jumps straight on it

3) When NOT to Monetize (okay that one you can have for free – never!!)

4) Understanding Where Money Really Comes From – and aligning yourself TO the frequency of wealth, such that you can literally NOT.BE.IMPACTED by anything that 99.99% of people think will cost them business

5) Money Vibration Principles Revealed (… my own personal philosophies and things that I live by / instil into my being around this, including my own daily practices)

6) Coding For Success

* How to ALWAYS have an endless stream of ideas

* AUTOMATIC continual unleashment of creativity and imagination, especially in so-called times of struggle

* Seeing past problems and accessing higher self in order to always know the answer, and how to move forward

7) Programming to Upgrade – the beliefs, energetic states and emotional patterns you require in order to be this person, have all this work for you, ALWAYS see and have the ability to act on the shit that will most pay off

The ‘Do What You Want All Day’ Bit:

* Exactly how my typical day flows and how I operate for maximum efficiency of time, energy, mental acuity, soul connectedness, etc

* Getting it all done as a busy entrepreneur (and single Mum, in my case) who also refuses to operate at anything less than EXCELLENT in terms of self-care, fitness, fun, playtime, etc

* Exactly what I do all day, broken down to the detail, to helm this becoming-8-figure-empire

* Exactly what I do NOT do all day, either it just gets ignored (hint: a LOT that most online marketers think matters!), or I let other people do it for me

* Calling in soulmate support, even long before you are ready to afford it

* Optimizing energy, focus, personal power, happiness, general flow. Aka mindset and also brain / nutrition hacks and so on

* TIME MANIFESTATION. OH YES IT IS A THING.

AND, while we’re at it, we will also be talking INSTANT MANIFESTATION. The exact process I use to bring the future into the NOW, by clearing all blocks existing between its reality in the quantum and its physical manifestation in the now!!

PLUS!

I’ll be doing this ‘Rapid-Fire’ Session at the end!!

1) What it really means to be magnetic online – hint: it’s not about having a pretty and polished website or online presence!

2) Bringing the ‘in private / behind the scenes’ version of you to the public

3) Unapologetic messaging and soul baring to call in your true #soultribe

4) Audience quality vs quality, and active elimination of those who don’t ‘HELL yes’ on your content

5) People don’t buy your products, they buy you. No – people don’t buy you, they buy your energy!! What that means and how to let it out

6) Being real about where you need to take care of YOU in order to be able to show up and shine fully

7) Keeping a laser-focus and tunnel-vision on your own path, and having the courage to pave the way that feels right for you even if it’s not been done before

8) Discernment to walk the line between being polarising and positively outrageous as opposed to just a hot mess 🙂 Scaling and magnetizing FROM the chaos of creativity and following the true artists way!

9) Knowing which ideas to work, what will sell, and how best to sell it so that the entire launch and selling experience is fun AND rewarding for both your audience and you

10) Creating hell yes offers that make them scream yes!

I know!

This workshop is off the HOOK already, and we haven’t even accounted for all the random shiz which will be coming out of me!!
