#85 | Beauty in the Breakdown: Awakening Your Dormant Feminine Powers with Katie Pelkey
About This Episode
Katie Pelkey is a Women’s Transformational Life Coach, Yoga, Meditation Instructor, and Higher Self Expert. Katie has a gift for seeing the true essence and gifts within her clients and she encourages her clients to clearly hear their inner wisdom and unearth their dormant feminine powers. She has trained with powerful teachers all over the world, studying in depth the various forms of meditation and yoga, yogic/tantric philosophy, leadership development, psychology, and alternative healing therapies. Her purpose is to awaken and explore the power of the divine feminine.
“If we can trust ourselves, then we can really lead in a soft, strong, malleable and feminine way.”
Join us for an honest conversation about discovering the hidden powers of femininity, changing the ways we respond to the world’s expectations of us, and surrendering to our intuitive higher selves.
“Femininity is embracing your own magic, and masculinity is bringing that magic out into the world.”
Katie’s breaking point happened when she was working her fifth marketing job in the corporate world. She was giving too much, operating with masculine energy all the time, and was suffering from anxiety and sleep deprivation over problems that she didn’t really care about. She broke down before a meeting one day at work and decided to quit her job. Since then, Katie has discovered that her life force lies in all of the qualities that she thought made her weak, and has learned that making your mark on the world sometimes means that you are going to fall flat on your face.
“Every time I have felt that heart-call, I’ve taken it. My success comes from listening to my heart and going with my instincts.”
In this episode, Katie shares with us her journey to operating with a balance of feminine and masculine energy, as well as her tips for connecting to your Higher Self and letting life guide you through your breaking point to the other side. As a special treat for our Girlskill listeners, Katie will also lead us through a 10-minute guided meditation.
“I love being this sensual, sexual, flowing creature. It was a power that I didn’t understand for so long, and now that I understand it, it feels so good.”
