"If it is only a dream, why is pain so real?" "A dream head struck against a dream wall causes dream pain. A dreamer is not cognizant of the hallucinatory fabric of a dream until he awakens. Similarly, man does not understand the delusory nature of the cosmic dream of creation until he awakens in God." Paramahansa Yogananda

The last many months I have been studying the teachings of Rupert Spira and it has been well worth it. My mind and being have quieted down enormously and a magical connection with the Truth of who I AM has developed. I found this video to be especially helpful so I am sharing it with you.

What is My Purpose?

I wrote an email to a friend this morning about her confusion about her purpose. I haven't posted in
so long that I thought this would be a good re-start.

I think the place we get stuck when asking the question 'what is my purpose?' is our approach.
First we ask what is it I am to do to express my purpose? Then we try to figure it out. I think
the first question in regards to aligning with purpose is how do I want to feel? For it will guide us
to purpose. For example I want to feel happy, surprised, amazed and excited. When I do something
that makes me feel that way I know I am on purpose. It can be painting, counseling, healing or a
walk in nature or attending a child's birthday party. I am a believer in healing the individual or the
planet happens through energy and feelings create energy. If we want to be on purpose and contribute
it is important that we find what it is we want to feel. The next step is to start focusing on what is
already in place in our life that makes us feel that way so we can create the feeling state that vibrates
at the energy we want to manifest. For example I may be feeling incredibly lonely about Kirby being
gone. That could kill a whole day with misery, so I switch to my gratitude for the laughter I had with
him,  the dinner I had with friends last weekend, the awesome sessions I had with clients yesterday
and I feel happy and surrounded by people. All of a sudden I am getting more clients and dinner
invites and I am back in a state of happiness and I am back on purpose contributing to the healing of
the energetic vibrations of my experience, the collective, the world.

I never think trying to figure anything out gets us very far if we want to explore new territory. We
just run circles in our minds exploring familiar territory. Most great scientists say that their great
discoveries came to them when they stopped trying to figure it out. I always make my intention
known to the Divine and then I listen to the stillness and then let it go. I find the answer always
appears in the most surprising ways.  'I intend to be aligned with my purpose' would be a good start.

New Testimonial

'Bird Woman', Oil on Canvas, 60x48, Collection of Artist (Katherine Treffinger)

"Katherine's fantastic sense of humor, humanity, humility, and faith are an amazing
cocktail that allows her healing work to be completely non-judgmental, empowering,
and deeply compassionate. Her pitch-perfect insights always ring true for me and her
work always feels so gentle, organic, and respectful...it feels like she waters and shines
on the seeds that are already waiting to thrive. Katherine and her powerful work have
assisted me in making some of the biggest transformations of my life. I am beyond
grateful for her!"

Changes and Messages

"God knows what we have need of before we ask. Our job is to know
this truth by affirming and honoring it by listening to the 'small quiet
voice within."

This week I sent this letter out to the 33 people that have been
participating in the Prosperity/ Healing sessions.

Dearest Ones

And you are, dearest Ones. I am writing to tell you that this morning,
during the session, it came very clear to me that it was time for a
change. I have now been doing these sessions for a year and a half,
5 days a week. For whatever reasons, and there are several I am aware
of, it is time for me to discontinue the prosperity/healing sessions. I am
excited about it because I love change. I also know it is time for me to
really center in, as my life has something going on that requires my
full attention on my connection to my Self at meditation time.

I am planning to put your present intentions on my altar and I will
affirm during meditation that God knows what you have need of before
you ask. If you want to change your intention at any point please feel
free to let me know. If you do not want to be on the altar let me know

I know some of you will really miss the daily messages. What I
recommend is going to my blog  www.ourlivingdream.blogspot.com .
On the right hand bar, scroll down and you will find my tags. Close
your eyes and let the mouse land somewhere and click. It will bring up
a page with many messages hopefully, (you just need one), gently let
your eyes land somewhere and it will be most certainly the perfect

I am available for individual sessions. Consultations have been
invaluable to many of the people I have worked with, really speeding up
there progress. Right now I am only available in the U.S. for talk.
However I am available for distance healings any where. For now, the
consultations are $75, if you commit to 2 sessions in a month they are
$60. Distance healings are $125. They are time intensive with not only
the healing sessions, but all the checking in involved. There have been
many successful healings. For local people I am still available for hands
on work at $60 an hour. I always appreciate referrals. My phone number
is 541.805.0905

Which brings me to my next point. For those of you who have worked
with me, and have not already done so, I would love testimonials if you
feel like writing them. There are now testimonials in the right hand bar
of the blog for those of you interested in reading them.

Without getting tremendously mushy, allow me to say that I feel close to
all of you. Please stay in touch. Also, I love hearing your magical stories
and successes, they help me.

Keep in mind you are the Divine having a human experience that can be
only experienced as you. You are important. Follow your souls promptings.
You are Love and you are loved. Take up as much space as it takes to be
fully you!

I will be periodically posting on my blog. So check in if you feel the

If you, or someone you know,would like one of my brochures please let
 me know. Also if you have somewhere to put a stack of them let me know

You remain in my prayers, much love, Katherine

Reflections from Prosperity Sessions

others. We are then truly showing up for this life we
are living. Life is made up of nows, nothing else."

it is essential to know that we are blessed and be
generous with our blessings. We are Love and loved."

the positive in life and each other. The magic wand is

our arms in gratitude, allowing ourselves to
surrender to the embrace of Divine Love. Love
will find a way. Say thank you now, before the
