This week MysticMag had the pleasure of interviewing Catherine Cates. In addition to being a Certified Life Coach and Intuitive Business Consultant, Catherine is a psychic reader, Akashic Record Reader, awake empath and Light Language channeler. Combining her powerful gifts with coaching she is able to offer insights from a different a different perspective and a higher level of clarity and knowing.
When did your passion for helping others begin and what inspired you to guide people in their life challenges?
Having had challenges of my own along the way like many of us, it’s my greatest desire to help others so they do not have to learn the hard way like I did. Now that I know what tools are available to avoid these pitfalls and use them in my life, it’s my passion to share them with others.
Could you tell us a bit more about your business and are there certain areas that you specialize in?
My specialty is mindset, how we think. If we don’t have the proper mindset or “clean” thinking, it makes it more difficult to manifest and get the life that we desire. To effectively manifest and get what they want, I help clients identify how their thinking may be holding them back. This applies to their business or personal life.
Using your intuition and being connected makes manifesting easier. By popular request, I recently created a course on how to develop your intuition, which will be available soon.
Have you found over recent years that a more diverse clientele has developed with an increased interest to access spiritual guidance and turn to psychics or mediums as a form of therapy?
Yes, most definitely. More and more people are becoming curious about metaphysics. They are turning to psychics or intuitive mindset coaches like myself for help to get insights and perspective.
How do your psychic abilities and coaching work together?
While many coaches are trained to use a system or process, I use my intuitive abilities to guide me where I need to go with clients. Instead of trying to fit someone into a box or particular process, I use my higher-self to guide me how best to help a client. Not only do I find that it allows me to hone in instantly it is specific to that person’s needs. This benefits the client by helping us get to the issue quicker and resolve it.
In your experience in working with people, what would you say is the number one thing that holds most people back from living the fulfilling life they would like to live?
Many people do not understand the power of thoughts and beliefs and how they help or hinder us. Even when we know, we often forget how to harness this power. If our thoughts and beliefs can be focused and refined, we can achieve anything we set our minds to. As a mindset coach it’s my specialty to help people identify where their thoughts or beliefs could be holding them back from getting the life of their dreams.
You have also contributed to the book Manifestations: True Stories Of Bringing The Imagined Into Reality. Do you have any advice for our readers on how to utilize the Law of Attraction to achieve their life goals?
While harnessing the power of your thoughts and beliefs is important, letting go of control is also essential. Many of us want to control the process partly because we’ve been taught to do that. For the best results, even though it may be tempting, it’s best not to push or force the manifesting process. Let go and let the Universe guide you and provide the next steps. When you can do that, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you can manifest!
