An Interview With Kathryn Harwig


What was the most sacred moment you have had in your life?
Kathryn Harwig:
Strangely enough, it happened in the Hennepin County Government center. In the 1970s, I worked as a probation officer. It seemed I was always stressed, always busy and often angry. That day was just another one of those days. I walked into the building, stressed, in a hurry, just like always. Then, the air “rippled” and I heard the words, “It is OK, Kathy.” And I knew it was. From that time on, I always knew it was all OK. Sometimes, when I am feeling anxious, I can still hear that voice, and the way It called my name. And I always remember that all is OK.

Why are you optimistic about the future of humanity in this time of uncertainty and fear?
I believe there has never been a better time to live on this planet. People are coming together in community. Everywhere I go I see people who are excited about developing their intuitive gifts. We are entering a time of collaboration and community. Our intuitive and spiritual communication is blossoming. I am thrilled to be a part of this movement. As our economy changes and we have less things, we have more of what is really important: friends, spirit and love.

What holistic practice is a part of your life to help you maintain health and wellness and to connect with your spiritual Self?
Good coffee and dark chocolate and a really good sense of humor. I make decisions asking, “Will this thing add to or detract from my joy and freedom?” And then I choose the path of joy. (Well, mostly, unless I don’t. But when I am wise I do.)

Oh, and I get eight hours of sleep each night. I really believe that if people just got a good night’s sleep, the world would improve greatly. So many of our messages come in dreams. And, hey, we need to sleep to dream.

What single message do you want to share with us from your heart?
That we live in a free will universe and we have choices. I think sometimes, we forget that. We are blessed to live in the land of the free. Let’s live free, vote free and dance in joy. And so it is.
