Which Lifetime Is This Anyway?

Every childhood experience holds within it the seeds of the tasks of your Soul. They provide the canvas from which you work. They provide context. As you travel through childhood and gather your bumps, falls and achievements, you activate the ancient wisdom held in the DNA held in every cell within your physical form. These experiences provide the portal of entry into the tasks of your Soul. They hold the vibrational frequency which resonates with the “energetic disturbances” of the wounds in your Soul’s history. Once detected, you can follow the threads of these vibrations back in time for the neutralization which allows transformation, resolution and reunion. Which Lifetime Is This Anyway offers a detailed description of these concepts, Cathryn’s personal story of her first “multidimensional bleed-through” and a 10-Step formula that guides you through this process.

I Think… I Like You Better Dead

“Keep me real. Sometimes, I am standing right beside you. I haven’t gone anywhere. Just keep me real.” This message was clearly relayed to Cathryn in a session with a Medium shortly after her brother John’s death. Over the next two years, Cathryn navigated through her grief, doubt, and fear to do just that. The result is this spiritual memoir when one can ask the question, “Is it real … or imagined?”

On this earth plane, no one can say for sure. What is true, however, is quantum physics has shown the mind does not know the difference. Cathryn chose to believe that the adventures, initiations, and healings she and her brother, John, experience together were real.
Will you do the same? Will you let yourself believe that perhaps this book is not so much about their story, but an invitation? An invitation from a deceased loved one who may be calling you to do the same.

Soul Steps:

Where Spirit and Body Meet

Soul Steps captures the most innovative and comprehensive program Cathryn offers. Presented as a 12-module structure, Cathryn introduces her revolutionary concept she calls, conscious-aerobic exercise. She states, “Aerobic activity offers a magical vehicle for the transformation and re-invention of Self. The body releases endorphins and then an invisible boundary dissolves. Ecstasy exudes and makes possible an unadulterated alignment with the Universe. Conscious aerobic exercise illuminates this magic with intention and infuses it with the essences of the Masters, Teachers, Angels, Guides, and loved ones. With body in motion, heart open, and mind alert, assistance descends, adversity is transformed, goals attained.” Cathryn embodies this truth. At age 54, while training for her first marathon, she inadvertently stumbled onto a mysterious formula for attaining success.

Share the Gift

Share the Gift invites you to teach your inner child the Laws of
The Universe and neutralize their fears about attracting that which you desire and deserve. Each of the four modules of Share the Gift introduces readers to Cathryn’s signature Seven Layer Healing Process that combines inner child work with energy tapping. Featured is Cathryn’s unique tapping style she calls, interactive tapping™. This model is applied to the four major concerns of most people: Attracting
intimate relationships, Manifesting abundance, Creating the right livelihood, and Developing reciprocal partnerships.

Enhancing this model is Cathryn’s citing examples from the Teachings of Abraham, which is channeled by Esther Hicks. This spiritual perspective offers a context for our pain. This context gives us a way to look at the challenges in our life through the eyes of the soul which, in turn, gives our pain purpose. We can become a student of, rather than a victim to, our pain. Our mind can quiet. We learn to respond, instead of collapse, into the inner child’s fears. Our journey towards fulfillment begins, and we partner with our inner child in its manifestation. With this relationship intact we can transmit clear intentions to The Universe and be confident that our dreams will manifest with enthusiasm and ease.


If you have ever suffered a great loss, this book has a message for you — one you will hold in your heart forever. In this true story, Cathryn seeks and learns to embrace the great gifts which await all of us on the other side of grief. From the first page to the last, readers travel with Cathryn on a shamanic journey of power animals, angels, and an Indian Chief and Princess, all lending their support for transforming even the most profound losses. This story begins when Cathryn, an author and teacher, sells everything and starts traveling across the country in a small motor home to promote her newly released book.

Beyond Compassion: The Love That Brought Them Home

Love transcends loss. It is the connector. It is the emotion that defies boundaries and bridges the physical and non-physical worlds. Love is energy. Love envelopes those that love in a force field that does not die. The body dies, but that spiritual connection does not. It lives on and continues to protect, nurture, comfort, and enhance. Beyond Compassion is Cathryn’s true story about the transformative powers of love and loss of first her pet and then her own mother. It is about the change our heart can experience when we have the tools to stay open to that love and breathe through the gut-wrenching feelings of loss. It is a tale that invites you to grab a cup of coffee on a lazy afternoon and take the time to remember — to remember the love, to breathe it in, to close your eyes and take a stroll down the path lined with your own losses. Cathryn inspires you to join her on her journey and then invites you to use the same tools to chart your own course to bliss, and a never-ending connection to those you love.
