How To Master Your Inner Self For Optimum Growth And Success (Kauai Insights)…

If you want to master business or master your life, you have to first learn how to master yourself…  Inner self mastery is what will help you cultivate immense strength, internal calmness, and authentic power in everything you do.  You will become like an oak tree, so firmly rooted in the ground, that no wind or storm can move you.

During my Kauai journey, I spent the first 2 weeks alone, really delving deep into myself and releasing the patterns and beliefs that were keeping me from expressing my fullest potential. But what I learned was that the real practice of inner self mastery happens in every day life. In each and every moment, you have the power and the choice to choose internal freedom or choose internal slavery.

And it all comes down to implementing one essential practice… Click ‘Play’ on the video below to hear more about it:

My journey is really just beginning… I grow and learn more and more about myself every single day.  Life experience is the real teacher… Only then do you really know how far you’ve grown and what you’re really made of!

I open myself to infinite possibilities!  And I see no limits for my life because I am the CREATOR… And so are you!  You are the master, the artist, painting on this canvas called life.  What kind of work of art do you choose to create?  One of unlimited potential, unconditional love, and peace?  Or one of limits and fear?  Awareness is the key and it will empower true choice in your life.

Thank you for spending this time with me here today, I really appreciate it!  And as I keep growing and learning more about myself, I’m going to keep sharing my insights with all of you!  And believe me, I definitely don’t know everything!  So please contribute your ideas, insights, and comments down below… What have you learned about yourself and inner mastery?  Are you ready to really choose the life you want to create?

Stay tuned for one last Kauai video to come… I have a very special one planned for all of you!   😉

Yours in Mastery,

Hey Katie,

Thanks for including us all during your 3-1/2 weeks of self mastery. You really dove deep into becoming the master of your own inner self. We don’t have to change’s about letting everything be OK as it is. Letting go, accepting and watching. This will help in releasing the patterns and habits of the past so we can operate at our fullest potential.


Louise Crooks December 8, 2009 at 9:31 am

Well said and shared Katy! Everything you’ve said is so true, and I am always in the place of mastering my mind, observing what’s going on for me, and resolving emotions when they come up – it does get easier with practice, and the processes become faster, so we transition from negative emotions/beliefs into what we truly desire and believe without challenge or struggle. We are on a similar journey!

PS Beautiful spot, perfect for doing this kind of work!


James Humphrey December 8, 2009 at 9:41 am

Yet another fantastic post…I was getting a bit antsy waiting on another post. :) Its so interesting that all the most successful people I come across and meet all say that it starts within…

I wonder why that is so hard to comprehend and actually put into use. Thanks for Sharing Katie and hope LA is fun!

Dear Katie,

You set a great example for many people. Your going deep inside yourself is the only way to lead from within. That is what a good friend of mine and you are demonstrating to me. Keep up the great work!

Much success in your new adventure!

Ms. Katie Freiling,

I thank you so much for touching on a LOT of Powerful Key points here. I truly love when you said that be an Observer “Observe thoughts, Observe patterns, observe behaviors” and practicing this with non-judgment we begin to pull back and reach different levels of awareness. I find that when I am approaching every situation in the present moment. My life becomes Rich, Fulfilled, and full of gratitude. I also ask myself this question, “Am I giving Love to everything: my thoughts, my behavior, to people, my action” Self-Mastery for me is having only LOVE to give away. Give it freely without wanting anything in return.

Buddha once said, “Awakening is natural, delusion is not.” Ego, past programming, beliefs, and patterns comes from the delusion, from the mind. In essence we are already what we seek. Out true nature is that of limitless light, purity, truth, and Love. When we offer this to every situation, people, universe we are actually beginning the process of Self-Mastery.

Going back to Nature is also Key: I have heard before that Nature GIVES so much to us what do we give them in return. And I think what we give them in return is a sense of wonder, awe, and LOVE. Our life is so fast-paced that we tend to neglect the little things that matter to us such as Family and Nature.

Frank Lloyd Wright once said, “I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.” I especially love Andre Sumara’s blog about his journey wilderness therapy so beautiful it’s a MUST READ!

Thank You Katie for sharing your journey with all of us.
I truly believe when you share your insights, experiences, wisdom, and growth YOU ARE TRULY BUILDING A LEGACY.

welcome back sweetie =)

Yours in true light

Melody-Rose Parker December 8, 2009 at 11:43 am


One of the things I have learned as a clear channel for Spirit is to unconditionally love, accept, and allow everything. All things, all people, all circumstances are direct communications from God. So, in following Spirit’s role model of unconditionally observing, we align with our Highest Possible Purpose as a natural course of events.

Thank you so much for the reminder.

Love and blessings,



Kathy Castrigno December 8, 2009 at 12:00 pm

Great video, being reminded of the simple truths of life is absolutely necessary! We humans tend to make things more complicated than we need to (myself included!).
This came at a great time as I had been asking for guidance for a certain issue I currently have and your video was the answer- Thanks!

Andre December 8, 2009 at 12:34 pm

A bow of respect to you Katie. A great video with a powerful message that’s always been burning in my heart. I love everything that you share, especially that quote from Adyasanthi: “At each and every moment, we’re expressing what we know ourselves to be.” because it’s just so true.

Humanity, for the most part, is asleep… without cultivating moment-by-moment awareness of our inner state, we will continue to look outside for happiness, love, and peace. Without that awareness, layers of limiting beliefs and patterns will continue to run our life – and our true self will remain hidden. When we begin to realize that our true self is All Possibility, that’s when our life begins to change! As the Creator of our life, we naturally take 100% responsibility for our life and everything else that does not reflect our true nature will fall away…

And thank you for mentioning getting in touch with nature! In fact I’m going for another wilderness therapy to Muriwai beach now… it’s another perfect day for walking barefoot on the sand!

Thank you Katie for sharing your deep wisdom with us! You are such a light!

Peace, Love, and Blessings,

Hi Katie, Thank you for yet another powerful lesson in self- mastery.

Hi katie:

I think this has been an incredible journey, no just for you but for everybody else that had the opportunity to watch your videos.

Thank you so much for this.

Yes, you and your teachers are right. We always try to control everything, we are always on the go, go, go… we want results fasts, etc. but we don’t stop to see what is really inside of us, why are we doing what are we doing, and as you say, just to become the observers and relax for a moment.

I know that having self awareness funny enough will empower our life and even our entrepreneurial endeavors.

We always look outside when the answer is inside.

Love and success,

Denys December 8, 2009 at 4:14 pm

Hi Katie,

Mastery of ourselves is the biggest challenge that we face in our lives.

The ultimate test is making right choices when they require us to sacrifice something for the good of others.

Ultimately, we discover most about ourselves when we are confronted by circumstances, events, and sometimes people, that feel overwhelming. It is only then that we discover and develop strength of character.

On my own personal journey I have come to recognise that there are no bad circumstances, experiences, or events, for there is purpose in all of them even if we cannot understand them. Only when we can embrace all events in life, however, painful, have we developed inner mastery. And the only way that is possible is if we believe that God has a loving purpose in all that happens to us.

It was this that the apostle Paul meant when he said that “all things work together for good, for them that love God, who are called according to His purpose”, which also explained his conviction, “I am persuaded that nothing shall separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus”.

Once we have arrived at this conviction then we see that there is nothing to fear in life, not even ‘fear’ itself. Consequently, we discover an inner strength, courage, and confidence to overcome any obstacle that stands in the way of achieving our goals.

When we come to the end of our journey through life, it will be our character that will endure and matter more than our achievements. And if the way we have lived inspires others to achieve their full potential, then our legacy will be priceless.

Katie, it sounds like you are discovering these things for yourself. Be assured, you have, and will have, many friends to cheer you on through life’s ups and downs.

God bless you.



Rose Goddess December 8, 2009 at 8:55 pm

Oh Wow! You are in such a beautiful place… inside and out! Thank you for sharing your truth with us. Being in nature gives me the most beautiful and blissful feeling ever! I love how you pointed out that the only thing which remains stable in our life is our awareness… beautifully said:)

Fathi Ridwan Basalamah December 8, 2009 at 9:42 pm


Sigmund Freud once said: The aim of psychoanalysis is to relieve people of their neurotic unhappiness so that they can be normally unhappy.

The question is HOW?

How our INNER FEELING make the THE INTERPRETATIONS of our daily life, past, present and affecting the next what we are going to do ? DON’T WORRY as long as we have POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE !

First thing first create our AWARENESS to POSITIVE MINDSET, i.e: ” I am always truthful, positive and helping others”

So, our INNER FEELING is already set by that kind of POSITIVE AFFIRMATION that create VALUE in our own SOUL!

No matter what happens, or at least if we experience bad situations at present or in the past, if we AWARE OF OUR OWN INNER FEELING we will be NORMALLY UNHAPPY instead of NEUROTIC UNHAPPY !

There are no facts, only interpretations. ~Friedrich Nietzsche.


John - Zen-Moments December 8, 2009 at 9:58 pm

A beautiful expression of the beauty that is at the core of life, and at the core of all of us.

And you are right Katie, nature can show us this beauty. It’s useful to ask ourselves “how can I possibly see and experience the beauty of nature, unless that beauty is also within me?”

As we expand and develop our awareness we experience this beauty and power. We also gain understanding, and through understanding, acceptance, empathy, and compassion emerge.

Such a journey. Thank you for sharing it.

Jason Kerchner December 9, 2009 at 6:08 pm

Self-Awareness can be incredibly difficult, but you are absolutely right that it is necessary to transformation. We do so much without thinking, and even when we think we’re being aware, habits and automatic responses can still occur.

I think one of the best ways to create self-awareness is to keep a journal, and to make sure you review it periodically. You’ll start to see patterns that you weren’t aware of while you were “in the moment.”

Thanks for sharing your journey, Katie!

Hi Katie

Nice video post. Yes, life’s an inner game. Everything hinges on the self, so self mastery is the key. As humans, we’re given the ability to think at a higher level. Unfortunately, we don’t. At least not in the way we were designed to. For many, ‘free will’ or ‘free thinking’ is just their belief system in disguise.

When we become more of our-self, we need less. And the control is in letting go of the control. Trying to control only reinforces what we’re trying to escape from. Your words remind me of the Tao; “true sayings seem contradictory. Act by not acting. Do by not doing. The master accomplishes much without doing”. Know thyself, that’s the key. I’ve created a programme around that, it may be of interest.
