We had the good fortune of connecting with Kat Trimarco and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kat, what role has risk played in your life or career?
There have been so many times in my life and career where those around me have thought I was crazy and questioned what I was doing. From the outside looking in, many of my actions and decisions have looked like a risk, but I’ve always known I was following the path of my heart and soul’s calling. When we are actually willing to follow the path of our heart, our soul and our inner truth, it always requires trusting in the action we’re called to take BEFORE we can see a definitive outcome. Most people are relying on the physical world, what they can see, for their sense of security. I’ve learned to mostly derive my sense of certainty internally through my connection to myself, the Universe and by
ligning with my inner vision for where I’m headed and what I’m creating.
When I knew it was time to leave my 13 year career as a hairstylist and go full time in my teaching & coaching business, I sold almost everything I owned, hired a property manager for my house, and bought a one way ticket from Canada to Los Angeles – with an empty house, no renters, and having just gone full time in my business. But I knew… I knew it was going to work out. I trusted and put faith in my vision and handed it over to the Universe. Shortly after arriving in Los Angeles, my property manager messaged me that she’d found perfect renters for my house and many synchronicities continued to unfold beyond what I could have ever planned.
There’s risk for the sake of risk and then there’s soul aligned risk, where you can’t yet see the physical evidence, but you have a KNOWING inside. I don’t believe in risk for the sake of risk – I think this sends a false message that the risk itself is what leads to the payoff and success, when it’s not.
When you have a vision and are aligned with your soul, you will be called to take action and move forward in a way that is sometimes scary to the logical mind. It’s so important to distinguish the difference between these types of ‘risks’ and to learn the way soul aligned action feels – which leads to the epic payoffs.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others? What are you most proud of?
My business has been an unfolding that started even before I incarnated on Earth, as I came here with great intention to elevate humanity and educate people of our true eternal nature, so that everyone who desires may access and actualize their unlimited ability to create and experience joy.
I am most proud that I’ve shown up for this vision and mission even when it didn’t make full sense to my conscious mind. It’s been a process of surrendering to and allowing forth what’s inside of me, over and over again. I followed my soul into the creation of this business. This is a very different dynamic than setting out to DO something and trying to force it into place.
It was easy in the sense that I know I am guided and that there’s a larger aspect of me, who I’m working with constantly in every decision and action. In this way it has been easy because I’m not really the one figuring things out. What hasn’t been easy is getting the limitations of my own mind out of the way to be able to show up for the decisions and actions my soul guides me to. It’s an internal navigation of thought, emotion and energy that, at times can feel challenging to move through. That, for me, has been the challenging aspect.
I’m so passionate about coaching others because it is the perceptions, thoughts, and emotions within ourselves as well as a misunderstanding of who and what we truly are as multi-dimensional beings that gets in the way of a person’s power to create. It is also within our inner world where we create new frameworks, thought patterns and align to new frequencies to create new realities externally. All things are possible when a person knows who they truly are on this level.
Through their work with me, people discover whole new aspects of themselves, experience deep internal fulfillment and connection and from this place, create new external experiences, manifestations and articulations of this new internal state of being come to life for them.
The other challenges have been continually releasing and letting go of the need to please others or avoid judgement and instead, align to my truth and bring forth what I’m here to teach. There have been many times over the years where friendships have fallen away because people didn’t understand me or didn’t accept what I was doing.
My main priority has always been my alignment to my vision and mission. Having had people mad at me or reject me because of it has been challenging in the sense of letting it go, forgiving and coming back home to my heart, my truth and my mission. However, I have always chosen to use these experiences for positive momentum forward and to create even deeper alignment to my vision and mission. Those who aren’t aligned, fall away and new people always come in.
It’s so important to trust ourselves and our heart. If there’s one thing I want every person in the entire world to know and hear, it’s that. Trust yourself. Trust your heart, even when you can’t make full sense of it with your mind. Trust it. Don’t let anyone ever talk you out of what feels true within you. What feels true, in the core knowing inside of you, is accurate. It is your connection point to the entire Universal Quantum Field of wisdom and to your own soul guidance. Trust it.
To learn about my backstory, the events that catalyzed me into my mission, and for specific teachings on aligning with your soul, I share these stories and teachings in depth in my book, Self Approved, which is available on Amazon worldwide.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My mom was out visiting a few months ago and we discovered the Hop On – Hop Off bus tour. It’s so much fun! There are two different lines, one that takes you on a tour to the beach in Santa Monica and Venice and the other line takes you on a tour through Hollywood. I learned so much from the guides on the bus! Much of which I didn’t even know about the city. I recommend this to anyone visiting or who lives here. I felt an even deeper appreciation for Los Angeles after learning so much on the tour.
Runyon Canyon is one of my favorite places. I absolutely love that there’s a beautiful hiking spot right here in the city.
Shopping in Beverly Hills is a must or at least taking a stroll down Rodeo Drive and Beverly Drive.
BRUNCH AT THE FOUR SEASONS BEVERLY HILLS. The best ever. Some of my other favorite restaurants are Cafe Gratitude, The Butcher’s Daughter and The Henry.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
The teachings of Abraham have been massively influential in bringing forth my visions into reality as well as my education in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica. I am forever appreciative of Ron & Mary Hulnick for sharing their decades of spiritual wisdom and mastery through this program.
