Hi There. My name is Katie and I am the voice of Freebird Meditations. I am humbled and honored to fly along with you on this journey of healing, learning, growing and being more present in this grand adventure called life.
I am here to offer a wide range of supportive resources to help you on your personal journey, whether it involves learning how to relax and reduce stress, or exploring deeper matters of the soul.
My own journey has been marked by struggles with depression, anxiety, and attention-related difficulties. It's been a difficult road, and I have often felt like I was facing my challenges alone. Whether these challenges were something I was born with, or a result of some difficult and painful experiences in my childhood and emerging adulthood, they have all had a profound impact on my life.
For a long time, I felt like I was lost in a maze. I tried all sorts of things to help me cope with my pain and emptiness, from self-help books, substances, to esoteric studies, to medicinal plants and various spiritual practices. But nothing seemed to work to truly work, at least in the long term. I was always looking outside of myself for the answers, never realizing that the power to change my life was within me all along.
Eventually, I learned that I had the strength, resources, and power within myself to make significant changes in my life. This knowledge came to me at a crucial time, and I am immensely grateful for it. I took responsibility for my own well-being, and I committed myself to trying meditation and then integrating the practices of mindfulness in my life. At first, it was a challenge, but with practice, it got easier. The insights started flowing, the volume on negative thoughts started to lower, and I began to learn how to work with my emotions and thoughts, rather than against them.
Over time, meditation and mindfulness have both become an invaluable tool for me. They have helped me to cultivate more compassion for myself and for others who were struggling with similar challenges. I began to make different choices in my life, choosing to surround myself with people who lifted me up and nourished my soul rather than the opposite. I became more mindful of how I used my time and my awareness, and I started to live a simpler, more intentional life.
Of course, challenges still arise, as they always will. But now, I have the tools and the awareness, and I desire for you to as well, to work through challenges more effectively.
I am less reactive than I used to be, and I am better able to hold sacred space for myself when I need it. My own journey has taught me that change is possible, and that we all have the power within us to create a more fulfilling, peaceful and authentic life.
During my process, this journey also led me to become a therapist, where I have seen firsthand how mindfulness and meditation can help others. I've invested much time and effort into enhancing my knowledge and skills in helping individuals struggling with mood problems, attention deficits, addiction, grief, trauma, and related issues. I've have had the opportunity to work with a variety of clients, each with their own unique set of challenges and goals. It's been incredibly rewarding to share these practices, witness clients make meaningful changes in their lives, and to know that I've played a small part in that process. I believe that everyone has the capacity for growth and change, and I'm honored to be able to guide my clients on their own journey towards healing and wholeness.
This world greatly needs us to be able to be more compassionate with others and most importantly ourselves and to give our attention to what really matters so that.. all beings can awaken, find freedom and know who and what we really are.
To all those who have found their way to my site and are open to trying meditation, I want to express my deepest gratitude. It takes courage and vulnerability to embark on a journey of self-discovery, and I am honored to be a small part of that journey.
My intention with my content is that it is honest, relatable, soulful and provides value and support for you on your own path. I also hope that when you achieve deeper levels of peace and desired levels of awareness that you can pay it forward somehow. Even if it is just being a little nicer and sweeter to yourself and your fellow humans. We all know that the world greatly, perhaps desperately, needs this as this time. Let’s be each other’s teachers and show each other the way. Perhaps we can fly tandem towards a better future with more peace, more love, and more freedom in our hearts.
So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for being here and for being open to the possibility of transformation. I hope that together we can create a space of healing, growth, and connection, and that you find peace and fulfillment in your own journey towards greater mindfulness and presence.
I wish you well on your journey. I look forward to providing more content and resources that may support you in the days to come. Until then, may be all be well, be happy and be free.
In Peace Profound,
