An interview that makes no mention of Harry Potter – yes, it’s true! I interview artist Catherine Rains and we discuss nothing to do with the boy wizard. BUT I wanted to bring you this interview because I extracted so much wisdom from it. Catherine is an amazing human being who has just as many life lessons for us as Harry himself.

Find out more about Catherine here

And on Instagram

At the end of the interview, I make some remarks about how what is discussed relates to the world of Hogwarts. In particular

*Catherine’s double pronged non resistance and how we see this in The Deathly Hallows

*The passage from childhood to adulthood

Some highlights from this interview:

How to be unintentionally intentional

The five words anyone can use in a negative situation to feel more empowered

Catherine’s epiphany about non resistance

The non linear nature of change.

How she diverted her energy to sidestep jealousy and intended her way to the job of her dreams

Why affirmations don’t work for so many people - because they are doing this thing alongside the affirmation

Her strategy for releasing fear and dread after her cancer diagnosis (I have never heard this from anyone else)

How she developed compassion for her husband in the midst of her divorce but still shielded herself from his manipulation

Her hilarious way of managing old resentments
