Interview With a Reality Transformation Enthusiast
Today I interviewed Kat, a 28-year old youth worker who is passionate about helping people create their own reality through changing their beliefs. She is in the process of writing her own book and one day hopes to start her own reality coaching business.
So let’s just start with you telling us a bit about yourself.
Okay, well I got into this whole ‘create your own reality’ stuff after reading Vadim Zeland’s book Reality Transurfing. I was very interested in the idea of being able to change my life by shifting my beliefs, and understanding that you’re not stuck where you are at because you have the ability to change what's coming next through your thoughts and actions in the present moment. This led me to want to help others understand that they are not stuck either and it is possible to change your life into the life you desire.
Interesting, so Vadim’s book is what led you to have such a big transformation in your own life?
Yes. It was actually Sunny Sharma’s Personal Mastery Quest videos on YouTube which led me to read the book Reality Transurfing. Before reading the book I was riddled with anxiety, diagnosed with PTSD and just emotionally unstable in general. I would overthink everything, my attention span was really short and I hated what my life had become. I knew I needed a change and I was ready to do it. As they say, the teacher appears when the student is ready. Once I learned about the importance of meditation that really got the ball rolling for me.
It led me into other things, like increasing my self-awareness, changing my thought patterns and learning how to increase my attention span.
What’s the importance of meditation?
Meditation helps bring focus back to the present moment and allows our thoughts to just drift by so that we can quieten the mind. It is scientifically proven that meditation changes the brain. It also helped me to be less reactive to the world around me. People often say “I don’t have time to meditate” yet they spend the first 20-minutes after waking up scrolling through their social media feed. Everyone has time to meditate but they just prioritize other things.
What do you mean by reactive?
Being reactive is when you aren't in a neutral state and everything provokes you. Once I realised that my reaction created or determined the outcome of a situation, it allowed me to be more in control of myself and to remain neutral when things around me would happen. I used to blame other people for making me feel a certain way and I think a lot of people do that because they aren’t aware that if they react in a different way they can create a positive outcome.
Do you have any recommendations for those who are ready to start changing their lives?
I’d start with meditating for 5-minutes a day. Just listening to the sound of a ticking clock or any mundane noise. Focus on that and if you notice your thoughts drifting just redirect your attention back to the noise.Perhaps jump onto Sunny’s YouTube channel or if you’re into reading go and buy Eckhart Tolle - The Power of Now or Vadim Zeland - Reality Transurfing.
