Welcome to INSPIRE-A-THON Thursday!
I hope that Andy Dooley managed to inspire you last week – I am going to his Vibration Activation Workshop in Brisbane on March 3rd and cannot wait to finally meet him after stalking his Facebook and Youtube for MONTHS!
Someone else who I am really excited to say hello to at this event is Kat Dawes, who will be a guest speaker at Andy’s event!
Coincidentally, Kat is here to INSPIRE us for this week’s Q&A!
Kat INSPIRES me because she is always in the NOW!
Every time I see her, she is dancing, skipping and singing her way through the markets, chatting and laughing with friends at healthy restaurants and has a constant smile on her face!
Here is what she had to say when I asked her a couple of quick questions a few weeks ago
Firstly, tell us a little about yourself:
My name is Kat Dawes, founder of a global movement called NOWism.
I promote the Present Moment for a living.
What is your biggest tip for anyone looking to transition to a healthier lifestyle?
You are what you think. Thought precedes all actions, healthy and unhealthy. Take care of the consciousness 1st, then the inspired right actions will follow.
How do you take time out for yourself?
I take time out where ever I am. I believe in creating the correct interior condition is the only thing that brings true peace. But no doubt, it is also nice to visit the beach or the rain forest etc to help nurture the interiority.
What is your ‘go to’ food?
Well, for me that is a forever shifting landscape, like the NOW. I follow what my body says in the moment (my body, not my ego) so sometimes that will be fresh fruit and vegetable sometimes it is cooked vegetables. For me the main ingredient is Presence.
What does an average day of food look like for you?
BREAKFAST: Fruit, a smoothie sometimes organic coffee. Water
LUNCH: A salad with lots of nuts and seeds. Water.
DINNER: Something warming, lentils, tempeh, vegetables. Water
SNACKS: fruit, coconut water. Water.
DESSERT: raw chocolate, coconut icecream, ojas builder. Water.
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
Pain pushes, until the vision pulls. Rev Dr Michael Bernard Beckwith
What is your biggest tip for having a balanced life?
Balance comes from having an intimate relationship with your Source. Learn to listen to your inner guidance. It is always there, the only thing that changes it you receptivity to hear it in the moment.
What song motivates/inspires you the most?
There are so many. Music speaks directly to the soul. At the moment I love Feel So Close by Calvin Harris. I play it really loud in the mornings when I drive my scooter into Ubud Bali.
