Q and A with Katherine, born and raised in Chile, now living in New York, New York
“You will always be the problem and you will always be the solution.”
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: Hi, my name is Katherine Berland, and I am an intuitive-rich money mindset activator and manifestation mentor with a sole mission to help others heal from the past, align with the present, and surface profound clarity to manifest an empowering future. I feel very passionately and nothing makes me happier than helping other women cultivate a quality life filled with ignited purpose, passion, and fulfillment. From childhood trauma healing, rectifying money wounds, to manifestation mentoring that unlocks the powers of the mind, I find immense joy in delivering safe-haven sessions that give my clients the newfound confidence to conquer any obstacle within the 3D world.
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: I come from a very dysfunctional family. If you ask me, I really had a difficult life going through many painful experiences that I continued to perpetuate in my adult life with toxic and abusive relationships. I literally had to lose everything to start looking for answers for why we do what we do and how we can break away from suffering, lack, limitation, and unworthiness. I do not mention this in a victim place because I healed and break with most of my traumas and paradigms, but all my past experiences really helped me understand how life works, the power we really have, which ultimately led me to want to help other people break free from the illusion of the mind to unleash their true potential.
My mom was a very abusive, narcissistic person, and my parents got divorced when I was 11. My mom left me and my five-year-old sister with my dad. My dad was a great dad, but a very hard worker; he always left the house early in the morning and came back late at night. I became the mom of my sister at the age of 12 because nobody else could take care of us. It was confusing and tough. I started drinking and smoking at 12. I was a very rebellious child, bad in school, and had a lot of physical fights. I started feeling depressed, which led me to try suicide myself twice. I finished high school and started working at 17. I wanted to feel proud of myself, so I worked very hard at the age of 20. And I bought my first apartment at the age of 21. I had a boyfriend, a house, a dog a car, but something was missing. I was having everything that people said brings happiness, but I couldn’t feel happy. I was working the whole day just to pay bills, drink, and watch TV. One day I just started asking, “This is all? This is how I’m going to live the rest of my life?” So, it was then that I decided to do something. I quit my job, I left my boyfriend, and I rented my apartment. I moved from Chile to Florida. I didn’t know what to do and how to make money, so I started working as a dancer, I found happiness for a couple months, and I made a lot of money, but something was still missing and I couldn’t figure out what it was. After a while, I met the dad of my son, which was a love bomb in the beginning, and since I’d never received love, I fell in love with him so easily and ignored all the red flags. After a couple months, he convinced me to stay in New York and live with him. And I did. Then my visa expired, and it was then that he start manipulating me and abusing me. I lost all my money and even I lost myself. I lost everything. I was feeling like WHY ME? What did I do so wrong to experience so much negative stuff? Then I started looking at my son and thinking, “He is going to live the same life” and I just felt so sad. Then, I started asking myself, “What I can do to move forward?” and I remembered to start praying.
Now, with time, I understand that you don’t have to force anything. I forgive them. And I made peace with my past and especially with myself, taking full responsibility for what I do what I get and how I feel. Now, I love my family just the way they are. I lost a lot of people on this path. Now, I made new friends and people who are on this path of making the world a better place. I’m always connecting with nice and beautiful people. My health is 100% good, my relationships changed so dramatically, and I feel full of purpose. And I’m loving what I do.
Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?
A: Spirituality, mindset, and body, you have to find the balance in the three of them if you really want to live a happy, fulfilled life. Everything that you need is within you; you will always be the problem and you will always be the solution. If you had childhood experiences where you didn’t have the choice to choose about your life, now you have the power and it’s time to own it, and create the life that you want and deserve in this world. Doesn’t matter what you did or who you think you are right now…you are always worthy if have it all.
Q: What does feminism mean to you?
A: I think feminism is the concept of equality as humans.
MORE FROM KATHERINE:
I love what I do and am always seeking ways to advance myself both personally and professionally to share that knowledge with others. However, when I am not working, you can often find me meditating, dancing, traveling, enjoying the zen of the beach, studying about human behavior, the mind, the universe, and of course one of my favorite things to do is spending time with my amazing kid.
Thank you for reading!
I’d love to connect with you! 🙂
