Kat Guthrie:

Hello, everyone, welcome back to another episode of Seriously Spiritual, I am Kat.

Sophie Bauer:

And I'm Sophie.

Kat Guthrie:

We're so excited. We released the podcast just a couple of days ago now available everywhere podcasts are sold. And the feedback so far has been really wonderful and the support as well from our, our communities. So we're so excited if you're listening to this, that you're back for another episode. And if this is your first time, welcome, thank you for joining us.

Sophie Bauer:

Welcome, buckle up, it's gonna be a wonderful and crazy ride.

Kat Guthrie:

What we thought we would talk about today is how Sophie and I met. Because it's been, you know, it's rare to find somebody that you connect with on so many levels in the way that Sophie and I really do. And it's rare to find somebody that you want to start a podcast with, because it's a it's definitely an undertaking. And I think one of the reasons why this suits us so well is that we really balance each other out. As well as connect in like, myriad different ways. Wouldn't you agree, Sophie?

Sophie Bauer:

Oh my gosh, yes. It's just our relationship is so beautiful. And I wish -- it's so beautiful.

Kat Guthrie:

It's soooo beautiful, this is the Seriously Spiritual podcast.

Sophie Bauer:

Seriously, so beautiful. I wish that I had you as a friend way sooner in my life. But divine timing, as always, we were perfectly ready for each other at the time we met. And yes, so let's just dive in. How did we meet? How did this beautiful synergistic relationship form? So Kat and I, we met through a spiritual mastermind, and we then created a spiritual collective, and our friendship just started to grow over time. And this was about a year and a half ago now where we, uh, yeah, we we met. And we were just pursuing the spiritual journey together. And we started to spend more time apart from the group, one on one and just getting to know each other and supporting each other on our growth. Because I think that was really a lens in which, you know, we started our relationship. So we just yeah, we committed to helping each other grow and just kind of working through all the things and then we started actually coaching each other. Because I was very much heavily focusing on the business side of coaching at the time, and Kat was very much growing her, her healing coaching business. And we were like, cool, let's just, like support each other and do all the things and support each other where we can. And that quickly grew to just becoming BFFs, naturally.

Kat Guthrie:

It's true, you know, we were it was like, almost every single day that we were having sessions for a little while. And so you know, when you do that, you really get to know somebody and you get to, you know, really experience them. Even though it was entirely online. You know, you really get to get to get to have a different feel of somebody when you're spending that much time with them.

Sophie Bauer:

Yeah, yeah. Oh, I guess I forgot to mention that. Yeah, we met virtually. So we were both living across the country, we had never met in person. And that I think that says a lot as to the emotional connection that you can create with somebody just over the internet. Like I never thought in my life, that that would have happened to me. I'm like, no, no, like, I gotta like know somebody in person to like, really feel that connection, you know? And but I you know, I was proven wrong. Kat quickly became my, my best friend.

Kat Guthrie:

Well, yeah, that example, too, of how like spirit brings you together with the people that you need to meet and whether that's online, or whether that's in person, you know? Like, it's all I don't know why I'm thinking of this, but the Netflix movie, I think it's called Love Hard of this guy who catfishes this girl, she flies across the country, and he's a totally different person, and they fall in love anyway.

Sophie Bauer:

Lol, that's amazing.

Kat Guthrie:

So not a good representation. We have not been catfishing each other, and yet. It is an example of spirit bringing you together with people who you need.

Sophie Bauer:

Mm hmm. Yeah, absolutely. And I'll say to like, well, we'll get into like how the podcast came about, but when we did first meet in person, so we didn't meet in person until I had gone through this massive life transition. I moved from the States from Minnesota. down to Costa Rica. And I was like Kat, you better get your booty down here because first of all, it's frickin amazing and also like, we need to like probably meet in person probably at some point, and luckily she agreed and she took the leap and I'll just say like, I can't like the words I can't even fathom the magic of seeing you in person. It was like yo Oh my god this person is actually real like I was straight up so freaking nervous that day like I was like, you know I don't know like I was you know, cuz you have all these expectations and preconceived ideas about who you are and what you'll be like and it's like to see you in the flesh was like, Oh my god like I kept touching your face like Oh my god you're real!

Kat Guthrie:

It was so like, magical is really I think the perfect word for it is that it's just experiencing somebody's essence in person is like, what you know it when you meet somebody for the first time in experiencing somebody's essence, you know, like, you're like, okay, whatever but because Sophie and I had spent so much time like plumbing the depths of our emotional and spiritual blah blah blahs that like, you know, finally having that person's essence actually revealed when when you meet all in person, all of a sudden was just like, it was the most stunning experience. Really, it was.

Sophie Bauer:

Hmmmm. That's a perfect word for it stunning, really, it was stunning. Like literally like, but like in a shocking and like a gorgeous way. Like it was just like, oh my god, I just met my soulmate, but holy fuck, like, oh my god, I just met my soul mate. So that was a great day. Yeah, yeah. But yeah, anyway, we, uh, through our time together, I mean, from, just spending time with friends online and then developing into a coaching relationship. We had both felt really drawn to pursue podcasting in general, just because we had both kind of felt the strain of short form education on our social platforms for our audiences, and our clients and students. And it just we yeah, we should just both been really feeling the draw to finally move into a long form, education platform, and because we had both kind of individually been envisioning and dreaming about this, and because our, our businesses are so complimentary, we were like, well, let's just like do it together, like you wanna, should we do this? Like let's freaking go, um, and I couldn't, I couldn't have asked for a better partner. Really, truly, truly, like, it wouldn't be the same to do this on your own, like, yes, yeah, no powerful and magical, but like to share this with you? Like, holy crap, it just 100 x's, the power and the magic and the impact and the fun, like.

Kat Guthrie:

Yeah, I think we're very lucky to be able to do this with each other together. Yeah. And also, in terms of starting the podcast, I also want to remind you that the reason why kind of Costa Rica and the podcast all happened together was because it was like, we had been playing around for like, a little while with the idea of doing a podcast or whatever. And like you had gone down to Costa Rica for for like six weeks, two months, something like that. And going down there, you were, like, you should come with me, it's gonna be amazing. And I was like, I don't know. And I asked my guides about it, and they were like, you can if you want to, but but you know, you don't have to and I was like, Okay, no, you know, oh, wait, whatever. And then you moved down there. And we were like, Okay, I think we're gonna do this podcast thing. And then you were like Kat you want to come down to Costa Rica now that I'm moving down here and we'll like do a photo shoot and everything, we'll make this podcast happen. And I was like, okay, okay. And I talked to my guides and was like, guides should I go? And they were like, Yes, this is the moment like, Oh, shit. Okay. So it's funny how, how the podcast was the impetus and Costa Rica was the impetus for each of them was the impetus for the other thing, kind of, because when I arrived in Costa Rica, it was like, Whoa, boy, Sophia and I had had an intense two weeks together, which like, brought up so much stuff in like the best possible way and it just it has catapulted us into this whole new level of being is the best way that I can put that. Yeah. Wouldn't you agree, Sophie?

Sophie Bauer:

Oh my god, I can't, I can't even like, there really are no words for how transformative the experience of us coming together was not only just because the two of us had the intention to create so much growth, but also because there is literally so much magic here in Nosara, Costa Rica. And it was just the perfect combination for like, leap off the cliff, here's what you're gonna do you're gonna grow and you're gonna heal so much, and you're going to be triggered, but you're gonna have so much fun. And it was like, it was the roller coaster of a lifetime. And at the end of it, both Kat and I were like, this was not two weeks, this was straight up, like, at least a whole year, not only because like time just moves different down here in Nosara. But also because like, we just got so much done. And we learned so much about ourselves and opened up so many truths about our lives and our souls and the frickin universe. And just like, yeah, it was Yep, totally no words.

Kat Guthrie:

Truly, it was incredible. It was absolutely, yeah. No words. Yeah. So yeah, so we decided then, you know, after going down there, we we healed all of the things so that we could start making this podcast. And, and of course, when we went down there, did we record any episodes? We did, but we didn't keep any of them. Because we were going through the process of what really needed to be cleaned out so that we could do this podcast in a way that felt aligned and true and meaningful to both of us as well as to hopefully, the people listening.

Sophie Bauer:

Mm hmm. Yeah. And I'll say too like, we are completely different human beings, from the day that you arrived to the day that you left, so it's, it's it's almost important that we didn't record any anything. And yeah, it was, it was more of a sacred container for us to meet and to come together and set our intentions and, and to grow. So that, you know, now we can continue to share our experiences and our trainings and whatever the hell we, you know, create for all of you. But yeah, it's, it was important that it that it happened that way.

Kat Guthrie:

It was and on another episode, we will definitely talk about all of the crazy stuff that happened in Costa Rica in Nosara. Yes, that all led to kind of this awakening. But yeah, we'll talk about that another time. Yeah, cool. Well, let's talk about all the things we love about each other. We made lists!

Sophie Bauer:

We did make lists, we just wanted to, I mean, my intention with this really is to just shed a little bit of light on why mostly just why I think Kat is so powerful and, and why she's important to pay attention to. And, you know, also just to share what what a strong and healthy and just important relationship can look like and feel like and yeah, I hope it inspires you all to kind of share and pour some love on on to the people that you love in your life. But most of all, just to Yeah, help you get to know us a little better. And yeah, get to know why we love each other.

Kat Guthrie:

Oh, this is so sweet.

Sophie Bauer:

You're so sweet.

Kat Guthrie:

Oh my god. That's not true. Okay, well, then. I'm going to start. These are some of the things that I love about Sophie. If you can't already tell. Sophie has an amazing laugh. It is so it can be so loud. It can be so goofy. It is like, like it is so freaking cute when you give just a wildly goofy, like, just like, kind of crazy laugh. Um, like, if when we were in Nosara and you would do it on the beach like I would see people turn their heads all the time.

Sophie Bauer:

Lol like, who fuck is this chick who just can't control herself?

Kat Guthrie:

But it's so you laugh with such wild abandon. It is so beautiful. And just like it's just really, it's really cool. And, you know, for someone like me who like I'm so much more of like dark humor kind of person to really laugh with that kind of joy because that's really what it is you just have such a joy about you and like a playfulness and everything that the way that that comes through in your laugh is just like, oh my god, this person is ridiculous. I love it!

Sophie Bauer:

Oh Kat, thank you, I appreciate that reflection.

Kat Guthrie:

You're welcome. Well, and that brings me to the next thing which is your love of all things play. You're so like you love fairies, magic. You know, the the clip I shared from the podcast on my social media was of you talking about being like a child having a tea party in the woods in a ball gown. You know, like, that stuff is amazing. Because I feel like that like little Kathryn is that kind of person. But but me Kathryn, not exactly has lost that but just doesn't that's not my, that's not my like real vibe, you know. But for you it's this. Your willingness, your ability to always be in the vibration of play, and curiosity, and fun is just so inspiring. Because because, you know, I think as adults, we absolutely lose that. Or we can lose that over time being beaten down by all of the crazy things that happen to us. But like, you know, you're an old soul. You've lived a lot of lives. We all live a lot of lives. But like you have been through a lot of stuff. And for you to still be able to anchor in that vibration and still be committed to the concept of play, I think that is so admirable. And it's you know, that's a, a thing I'm really inspired by.

Sophie Bauer:

Oh thank you so much Kat. Yeah, I guess I am just committed. It's just like, I don't, I don't know what it is. But there's just this, this knowing and this commitment inside of me that's like, I will not live a single day without play and joy and curiosity. Like there's just no point otherwise. So I should do some excavating as to why that's so anchored in but...

Kat Guthrie:

Take some like the dirt from your mound and throw it on my mound.

Sophie Bauer:

Alright, well, will do.

Kat Guthrie:

Alright, well, then the next thing that I find so impressive is that even though you are so playful, and I think one of the things that I really appreciate appreciate about you is your willingness to do the work. And not just the work in terms of like you are really good at getting shit done like writing documents and you know, doing creating artwork and, you know, make creating your business, you're really really good at work motivation. But what I really mean by that is that you are not afraid of looking into your darkness. I think that a lot of people are just too afraid to really do that to plumb the depths of where our trauma comes from, of where our pain comes from, and healing, you know, all of the many things like if you were just telling me the other day about maybe just yesterday or this morning, about the fact that you removed like 100 energetic swords from your energetic body, and then this morning, you are draining the poison out of your body from all of those swords. Like, we, we all have those kinds of things in our bodies, like there it takes a lot takes a lot to get into a human body. And so to really be able to, to look and see those swords and be like, there are swords in me. What, why are their swords in me?? And really, like be able to not only be like Take em out, take em out, take em out, but like, figure out where they came from and why they were there. That kind of courage, because it's really, it really is courage is not something that a lot of people are able to really engage with in the way that you engage with it. So, you know, thank you for being courageous and for sharing yourself with me sharing your darkness with me as well as your light and for really being able to do the work because that's something that I admire and respect so much in you and in general when people are able to actually do that. So thank you for doing that.

Sophie Bauer:

Thank you for reflecting that Kat. Yeah, it's uh, I mean, we're only able to help or heal others as much as we've helped or healed ourselves. Right. So you know, being being a leader and a coach and a mentor. It's not only my responsibility to do it, but you know, I know what's on the other side of all that healing. So...

Kat Guthrie:

But you know, the work, you did the work even when you weren't quite sure what was on the other side of it.

Sophie Bauer:

That's valid. That's valid. Yeah. Again, I don't know why I've anchored in that. So I got to do some excavating. And I'll share why. But yeah, it's just, it's the commitment to, to enjoy my life. Because I know on the other side of all that healing, there's so much expansion and freedom. Yeah.

Kat Guthrie:

I love that. Well, and you know, another, another way that that plays into it is, you know, you are remarkably good at manifesting things. And like, you know, me, you know, that I generally hate the term manifesting, especially because I don't tend to think of myself as somebody who manifests. So, but the your ability to just kind of like make things happen in your life is very impressive to me. And, and I, since I still don't quite know what it is exactly that, that I'm lacking in order to be able to manifest in my life, even though we've talked on other episodes about the fact that maybe it's not a lack of manifesting, it's just that it's happened in a different way. But still, like that, is, I think it's a special kind of magic, that, that a lot of people really struggle to figure out how to do, how to anchor in. And it's also the idea that when you, when you want to manifest something, you can't just like, magically wish it into existence, you have to pair it with the work. And I think that's what you're really, really good at is that you, you, you create, you have all these amazing dreams, for the things that you want to create in your life, and then you actually do the work to make that happen. And, you know, I think that I, I really, really admire that because you have this work ethic that is just, let's just say I don't have that same work ethic anymore. And, and it's just really, really impressive to watch you create in your life in all of the myriad ways that you create. It's really pretty stunning to watch.

Sophie Bauer:

Oh, Kat. Thank you. Yeah, I think all three of these things really tied together, though. It's like doing the work, manifest my dreams, and anchoring in that playfulness is like the pathway to the least resistance of getting there. So it's like I have like this, this pyramid of how I create things. And because I've been doing it for so long, I know what happens on the other side of it. So it's easy to just like, keep rolling in that, you know. Yeah. But yeah, thank you for acknowledging that in me, I appreciate you.

Kat Guthrie:

Of course, I appreciate you too. Well, the next thing that I love about you, is your flexibility of mind. And I'd say that this is like something inherent to both you as well as the way that you were educated. You know, you grew up homeschooled. And I really think that that has given you so much. You're able to engage in your mental gymnastics in a way that a lot of people are not really able to because so many of us are indoctrinated into a certain way of thinking or a way of believing the world has to work and you just don't. And that is so fun. It is so fucking fun to be around somebody who's like I don't know, let's be just like, immediately, you blast off from Earth, like multiple times per day, imagining dreaming of some crazy big thing, because you don't have all of the the I don't know, you don't have a straight jacket around. You don't have a straight jacket around your mind. So that is just it's super fun to be

Sophie Bauer:

I love that. Thank you. It's fun to be it's fun for around. me to be that way around you. I mean, not that I'm not always like that, but especially it just magnifies it because because I get to see your excitement of thinking about new ways. So it's like, yes, let's do it together. I can create like, I don't even know what but let's just see what we can create today. I love that. That's awesome. Yeah. So it's fun with friends. Right?

Kat Guthrie:

it is, or you know, other people too, like the next bullet point that I really wanted to talk about is though, I really love the way that you fall in love with a person and that can be like a romance like I've seen you you know involved with some romantic partners and I just love watching you fall head over heels for them. And then just like falling right back out again. It's your and you do it with your whole self. It's not like you just like put a toe in and you're like, I don't know, you just when you find somebody you're like let's go jump straight into the or you dive like into the deep end you know I think that's representative of kind of how you do things in your life in general, you don't just like, you know, you don't just put a toe in for the most part, you really just go the whole hog. And yeah, and that, that that kind of commitment again to enjoying your life, I think is really, really impressive. So.

Sophie Bauer:

Y6eah, oh, that's interesting, I wouldn't have, I wouldn't have picked that up about something to notice about me. But you're right. Like, I fall in love at least 27 times a day, like strangers on the street. I'm just like, I just loved fall in love and to be in love, no matter what the context of the relationship is. And I think that, that love always starts with self, but it's just so much more fun to be in love with people, you know?

Kat Guthrie:

I agree. Yeah, I agree. And then, um, I love the way that you pursue the things that you really care about, like art, where, you know, when you've said in your educational years, like you, you know, you were able to kind of shape your education towards being able to pursue art of all different kinds. And like, when I first met you, and you told us, you know, you were a singer, you were a dancer, you're an actor, you were an artist, you know, and I was like, Who is this wackadoo who thinks she can do all of these artistic things all at once. No one could do all of these things at once. That's crazy. And like, like, I didn't even say like circus performer on top of that, like, and then I get to know you. And the more I see your art, the more I'm like, fuck, no she really is all of these things. Like it is. It's like being a renaissance man, Right you are, you're a jack of all trades when it comes to art. And I think that is so freaking cool. Because you really just like you were given the space to pursue all of those things, and you did it and you have the skills in all of them. And like, that's just, ah, that's like what an artist should be, or at least an artist has the potential to be. I think that's so cool.

Sophie Bauer:

Oh, my gosh, Kat. Wow, I'm just receiving all of your love right now. Thank you, thank you, thank you for saying that. It's, you know, it's interesting that you see that in me, because for a lot of my life, I felt like, I just feel like I'm not at my full potential in each of these things that I pursue, because I do, I am passionate about so many things. And I know, I can visualize, and I can see my potential, like the ultimate potential in each of the endeavors. So it's, it, it's really heartwarming, and that sounds so cheesy, but it's just like, it's heartwarming to hear that you, you do see that, that commitment, and that there is a level of, of expertise, or, or just a level of achievement, in all the things that I do it really, it means a lot because I do put a lot of love and energy into developing my crafts and expressing myself. So thank you.

Kat Guthrie:

You're welcome. And I also you know, I hear you, I mean, I was such a specialist in my one area of art. And like, was it great? Yeah, to a certain extent. But I also, I never felt good enough, you know, and by a lot of rubrics I wasn't good enough, you know, and that's okay. It's just that you still have such a joy to the way that you pursue art. And I really lost that, you know, by pursuing it so intensely, I really just had to tap out at a certain point. So, you know, so I admire that a lot. And then the, you're welcome. The final thing that I have is kind of a summary of everything you've seen here, which is that you really have a generosity of heart and with your resources as well for people, you know, the way that you and I both decided to coach each other. And, you know, we would do these exchanges, you would help me with my social media with my business, but it's more than that. It's, you know, like when I came down to Costa Rica, I was able to stay with you for two weeks that didn't that's a generosity of resources like, and we really struggled to be in the same room together sometimes because as it turns out, I had all of these like, I don't know 11 I think different spiritual guides and creatures and dads and everything was me and I got into Sophie's room and she was like, well, there are a lot of people in here and I was like, I had no idea that I just traveled with a posse. So you know, so but we made it work together. She didn't kick me out and send me to a hotel like I was kind of worried she might so you you know, that was pretty great. But it's also about your generosity of heart and love in the way that you love and, and operate in the world. You want to be in love and share love with everyone. And, you know, I think that's especially considering the trauma that you've been through with your dad and with your family and everything. I think it's a really beautiful way to move through the world that despite everything that happens, you are committed to being in love, for love, through love, just it is it is your guiding principle and I think that's really incredible.

Sophie Bauer:

Wow, thank you so much Kat. I'm just like, my heart is literally cracking open right now, receiving all of your words and your love. Thank you so much. Oh my god, I'm gonna cry. Literally, like literally, I like there's so much to receive here. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I'm straight up gonna listen to this again and just let myself sob in gratitude. Thank you,

Kat Guthrie:

Honey. I know I kind of like don't want you to read me my list now cuz I'm just gonna be like, sobbing.

Sophie Bauer:

Yeah, no dude, that's the best part. I love to shower my love on people. That's a no, no, you do.

Kat Guthrie:

I'm not quite as good at receiving it. So here we go.

Sophie Bauer:

Yes, invitation to just allow yourself to receive my love. Okay, so guys, I'm going to tell you about the things I love about my kitty cat. She's just a gift to humanity and the universe. And oh my god, I'll say it again. But like, I just I wish I had her as a friend growing up because I needed someone like her so desperately. But it's a good thing that I learned how to be my own BFF first.

Kat Guthrie:

I was not this person when you were younger, you would not have wanted to be friends with me.

Sophie Bauer:

That's valid. It's all perfect timing. But, uh, one of one of the things. One of the top things that I really, really love and admire and appreciate about Kat is her, her fire and her passion to find her truth, her soul's truth, and to take radical, radical self care of herself, and to just be standing in that truth and her needs and her desires. And she has this insane fire and passion to heal, and to resolve any perceived limitations or blocks that are coming up along her journey, like her resilience to continue to have this fire and passion is so incredibly inspiring. And it I would not have healed the amount that I have healed without watching you go through your own processes, and watching you bloom in that way. Like it's just, it's truly one of the most remarkable things I've ever seen to see someone commit to themselves in that way. It's amazing.

Kat Guthrie:

Thank you, honey. That's yeah, I really appreciate that. Thank you.

Sophie Bauer:

Yeah, yeah,

Kat Guthrie:

The crying's already beginning.

Sophie Bauer:

I'm like laughing at that. I don't know. I love to make people feel their feelings. Feel your feelings! Yeah. And that, that leads me to my next thing is that she's so fearless in all of the, all of the things that you can face in the healing in the, in the love versus fear in the evil in the face of like, terror. Like there's, you know, there's so many things that we can we can face as a human being that are just scary. And she is always fearless. I don't know how she frickin does it. But she's always like, No, we're gonna do this. This is the thing and we're gonna summon all of the courage, all of the teams, all of the weapons of love. I don't know what it is. But like she's just fearless all the time. And, again, it's so inspiring to watch that and to receive that and to give myself permission to continue to embody that fearlessness. Yeah, it's It's remarkable.

Kat Guthrie:

Thank you, sweetheart. I truly have no idea what that is. Because I certainly have spent a lot of my life having fear or being in fear but like, I don't watch horror movies. I don't watch true crime. I don't read murder novels. Like none of that stuff. And I don't know if that's like me just being fearless or me being like, I don't need that extra fear in my life. You know, I got enough of my own. So, but yeah, I think it's just recognizing that love is is truly the opposite of fear. And if you're going to pursue this life of love and happiness and joy, you're really just, you, fear is the other side of that, you know?

Sophie Bauer:

Yeah. Yeah, absolutely. And it's that like, that's your strength to really, always be grounded and rooted in that knowing that you are able to transmute all of the fear or all of the quote unquote, evil through your continual shine of your love. And I think that's what makes you so fearless. And it's just, it's really a beautiful process to watch you. Gosh, just be so resolute in that, it's amazing.

Kat Guthrie:

Yeah, thank you, sweetheart. That's really nice.

Sophie Bauer:

You're welcome. And now, more like, upbeat and fun note. I fucking love Kat when she's singing her musical theater songs. She's just like, letting herself go be like her her opera persona, I don't even know. But like, this is the side of Kat that like just, I it's just freaking amazing, because not only is Kat an amazing singer. But she will often purposely sing horribly, just for the sake of comedy. Great, it's a great thing. Because I love that we can share this joy together singing terribly or amazingly, whatever it is. One of my favorite memories of us together here in Costa Rica was just us like singing frickin absurd musical theater songs on the beach. And just like, not even caring who was listening what they were doing, living our best life. And it's just, it's so much fun to have a friend who can share your love of art, whatever the expression is. And not only that, but you're just a god dang talented musician, and artist. And it's just, it's so inspiring to be around you in that way. So thank you for singing all your songs.

Kat Guthrie:

Oh my god, thank you for singing with me and for only kind of getting mad at me when I go on too far.

Sophie Bauer:

Yeah I try to be as nice as possible, like okay, I heard you, you need to stop now.

Kat Guthrie:

Everybody needs to have their limits put in front of them sometimes. It's okay. Loving boundaries.

Sophie Bauer:

Loving boundaries. Exactly. Yes. Yes. Cool. Well, and then okay, here's the other thing I love about you, you are so gosh dang curious. And to ask questions, to research, and to learn about all the frickin wild and wild just like theories and conspiracies, and just like crazy rabbit holes that you can go down like that literally, nobody has the guts or the patience to research and you are just so committed to figuring out all these crazy truths and stories about humanity in the universe and frickin aliens and like creatures, and I don't even know what the fuck but like you, I just love your curiosity and your commitment to like, find the answers. Because God knows I don't have the patience to like, go through all that research and like excavation, but you It is so fun to be friends with you. I get to avoid doing all the research, but like, also, like your commitment to finding the truths is just insane. So thank you on behalf of all of humanity, for your curiosity, and everybody listening to this podcast, because we get to have a lot of cool topics because of you.

Kat Guthrie:

Oh, well, thank you. You know, I think that if I wasn't if I didn't have the clairvoyance to like and a good relationship with my guides to really figure out if any of this stuff was true, I think it would just be like, you could get stuck in that fear rabbit hole so easily, right? Like, it's just, you know, I at certain point when I first started to be like, Oh, I really need to learn more about conspiracies and stuff. I started reading about it. And there was just so much fear attached to what people were saying that I was like, You know what, I can't do it. I can't read mostly other people's stuff. And so it really means that when I do research something it's like, I'm pretty confident that I'm supposed to be reading it, like my guides or my guides are guiding me to read it or like I'm gonna get something really strong and powerful out of it, even if it's the incorrect information, you know what I mean? But, um, but yeah, thank you for like, like being the one person that I can share this stuff with. Yeah, like, Ah, let me tell you about this crazy alien thing that I just discovered. Like it's so cool to have somebody that I can share that with because I don't, I don't have a lot of people that I can share these kinds of things with. And, you know, part of creating this podcast is finding more, so...

Sophie Bauer:

Yes, desensitizing people and giving permission for more people to play with this and find friends who, who like this too, because it's more fun with friends. Lol.

Kat Guthrie:

It's more fun with friends. Yeah. Well thank you, love.

Sophie Bauer:

You're welcome. Yeah. And another thing is that, man, oh, Kat, I love you for how kind and compassionate and nurturing you are. Not only to yourself, but to literally every single frickin human being, like, you have so much kindness and compassion towards everybody and their story, whether, even if they're living in the depths of their trauma, and it's like, sometimes for me, it's like, oh, my gosh, like, would you just get out of your story for one second, you would see, it's fine. But like, you have so much patience and compassion, and nurturing for that. And it's really healing to, to receive that from you. And to watch you do that. And I'll say too like, to receive your that kind of love in person too was such a gift. Like, all of our cuddle puddles, and just like stroking each other's hair, and just just really spending intimate, nurturing time together. And watching, it's like, okay, receiving that is one thing, but then watching you give that to yourself, is like, one of the greatest gifts I've ever received, because it's given me so much permission to do that for myself. Because, you know, I basically grew up a workaholic, in school, and then in building all of my businesses, and it, it's difficult for me to prioritize that kind of nurturing that you give yourself. And it's so healing and inspiring to be around you in that way. And literally, everybody who encounters you is experiences that and it's a beautiful gift that you have.

Kat Guthrie:

Thank you, sweetheart, I really appreciate that one. And I think, especially because I have not always been like this, and you know, I still have my days when I'm not like this, and the people that I'm not always like this with. But it's something that I've definitely had to work really hard to become a nice person, you know, because because I've experienced so much trauma in my life and, and then you know, getting sick, really being forced to take care of myself, they are such gifts to, to go through these kinds of challenges in your life, and to be able to come out on the other side of side, a better changed person, who can be compassionate to people in the depths of their, in the depths of their their challenges, because, you know, it's I don't know, we all just, we all have these opportunities to grow and change, and we're not always able to take them. So I'm just really grateful that I finally got to a place in my life where I had experienced enough trauma where I wanted to be able to change it for the better. And, you know, there have been other lives, other life iterations that I've had, where I wasn't able to make that choice, you know, so I'm just grateful to be here on the other side, and to be able to share that with other people. And, you know, I'm grateful to be able to share that with you. Because, again, there aren't that many people that I have in my life right now that that I can do this with. And also, you know that in terms of the nurturing, too, I always just want to say, you know, I learned how to do that, because somebody else did it for me. And, you know, now that, that that's the kind of thing that I'm doing for you, now, you're going to be able to do it for other people as well. It's just the modeling behavior of what it means to really be with somebody in their pain and their suffering and to just hold them and love them, you know.

Sophie Bauer:

Yeah, it's beautiful. And, and you have that capacity more, because you do that so much for yourself. And I think that's what is almost the most inspiring thing for me is that but you know, before knowing you I did not really give myself permission ever to just sit there for for hours and just hold myself or just allow myself to be healed and do the energy work. It's like you nurture your body and your emotions so much. And it's just, I've never met another human being who does that for themselves. So thank you for being such a beautiful example in that way.

Kat Guthrie:

Thank you love, I really appreciate that. You're gonna get me to cry. It's gonna happen soon, I promise. All the tears. We love the happy tears. Yeah. And that leads me to the other endo f the spectrum. I love your jokes and all your frickin dark ass humor, because it's the best like, I swear to god, you just throw me some fireballs sometime, that just catch me off guard. And I'm like, Who the fuck thinks like that? Like she's just with all of her jokes it's just like a hilarious contrast in the way that we both have our humor because I'm always like, up in this like, airy, like hilarious. Oh my god, like the fairy realm. And she's just like, it's dark and humorous and like painful. Oh my god, we laugh at the pain. And I'm just like, thank you for this contrast. It's amazing. You know, I do have to say that gallows humor definitely is inherited. My my mom and my aunt are all the all of us are the same way. It's just, you know, it's definitely something that I that came down genetically as well, as is just part of my personality. You know, you have to, at a certain point be able to laugh about this stuff. It's just too dark otherwise. Or keeps it hidden.

Sophie Bauer:

It's just yeah, you gotta laugh at the darkness. Otherwise, it's too dark. I love it. It's good. Yeah. Well, and my last thing that I wanted to share, is that you, I mean, I'm okay. Let me reframe this, you have this beautiful, non Right, exactly. And it's like, even if you are judgmental way about you. And in that you always see me and the like you're open and honest, and like that, in itself is an world through this untainted lens of love. And it's just like, I feel so much safety to be just real and raw and just wildly authentic with you. Because I know that you won't judge me. And a lot of this is because you don't judge yourself. Um, and that is it. That's just, there's it's so rare to find a person who doesn't judge themselves. expression of non judgement. And it's, it's really incredible. Because this is one of the most powerful it is the most powerful relationships I've ever had in my life with you, because it's so safe to be in my rage, or my despair, or like, ecstatic excitement and just like cringing and embarrassment, because it doesn't even matter. Because I know that you love me anyway. And because of it. And that's because you love yourself in all of that so deeply. So...

Kat Guthrie:

Sophie, I am gonna have to go back and listen to these all again. Actually, I'm gonna have to anyway when we edit the episode, but thank you. That was a really beautiful list. Thank you. And I think probably if I have people from other portions of my life who are listening to this and hearing some of these things, I think they're going to be very surprised to hear that this is the person that I am today because it's definitely much different from who I was before. So thank you for this modern times reflection of of who I who I've become. I really appreciate it. Thank you.

Sophie Bauer:

It's my honor and pleasure to reflect all of this divinity and love back to you Kat it's a you're amazing. And I'm so grateful for you in this friendship. It's a it is the gift of a lifetime.

Kat Guthrie:

You're amazing too. And I I don't think I would be the person I am today without you. So thank. Thank you for your love.

Sophie Bauer:

thank you for the gift. Okay, I'm gonna stop singing we're gonna continue to sing the rest of this episode if I don't stop myself.

Kat Guthrie:

I'd be into it, but I'm not sure everybody else would be.

Sophie Bauer:

Yeah, no, it's okay. It's okay. Yeah, so yeah, we want to just share too a couple of things that are unique about our friendship. Fun facts that nobody would know unless we shared it. Kat do you want to start us off?

Kat Guthrie:

Yes. If you if you haven't already picked up on this, Sophie and I are 14 years apart. Literally, two, a generation, two generations apart. I don't know. Yeah, I think 14 years apart. How old? Am I? Yeah, 14 years.

Sophie Bauer:

Literally. I'm like, I mean, in all the lifetimes together and probably like 8 billion years old.

Kat Guthrie:

Like, literally, I read some, we'll talk about that in another life iteration, but the amount of versions of us on earth at this time, woof.

Sophie Bauer:

Oh, true. Okay. Yeah, we got to make a note for a whole other episode on that. But yeah, I think it's, it's just so like, I hope that this is a big frickin permission slip, for people to take the attachment and the identities off of what a solid, amazing, beautiful relationship can look like. And that, you know, not only is Kat one of my best friends, and we're 14 years apart, but like, I have some crazy amazing relationships with, with some people who are 13 years old, or, you know, 78 years old, and it's like, your friends don't have to be at the same like age of body, you know, and it's just, it's such a testament to the soul connection that you can, you can have. So open your your curiosity to what could be built with, with any, any human being,

Kat Guthrie:

100%. At the end of the day, it all just goes back to who the person is not the age of their body.

Sophie Bauer:

Yeah, word. Cool.

Kat Guthrie:

We also one of the things that makes our friendship unique is that we have a lot of shared, present life experiences. As well as a lot of past lives together. But in terms of like, our present life experiences, like we both are part of the dead dad's club, a big one, we both have, you know, art is such a big part of our lives, we both have traveled an extensive amount, you know, we just there, you know, this life, we really, we had a lot of crossover where we could initially connect with each other. And, you know, be able to not exactly see the world from the same place, but you know, to have I don't know, something, sometimes having a shared journey really makes it safe, I think, to really explore who you are, because you know, that at least the other person has some context for what it's like to, for example, be part of the dead dad's club, you know, that's something that, that for my friends who aren't, you know, haven't had that experience yet. They're not really ever going to feel comfortable in that space with me, and that's okay. It's just that there is that shared kinship, you know, through those shared experiences.

Sophie Bauer:

Yeah, well, and what I'll say too, to that is like, I've never met, another human being who shared so many similar life experiences, like, it's like, I don't even know how to explain this. But it's like, our lives were almost like, reversed. In the way in the same life experiences that we have, like, like, the image that I get in my mind is it's like, you can look at a life as like a road, but it's like, ours were like flipped and like put on top of each other. So it's like, we all experience like, such similar things. But in just like, you know, completely different orders and two ways. Yeah, so I think that's pretty freakin cool. And I don't think it's an accident either.

Kat Guthrie:

Yep. I agree. Not not an accident for sure. Um, and we also have a lot of past lives together some that we can't talk about some that we can like, we've been mother daughter before.

Sophie Bauer:

Yeah. Kat was the mom if y'all didn't guess. Haha, yeah.

Kat Guthrie:

I'm sure they guessed. And another one. Sophie was like a peasant and I was a high born. Another one, we were I was just gonna say that and because time isn't linear, like part of an alien species that was feline is but you know, I think it's you come together with the people in your life that you need to come together with not only because you're supposed to do important things with them, but also because you're doing important things with them in other places at other times, you know. you're doing all of those important things, basically, at the same time. So, I think that's kind of cool. I 100% agree. Yeah. Like the the version of me that's in this life is hanging out with a version of Sophie that's in this life, but all of the other versions of us and these other lives are happening are hanging out like right now going through the same experiences. And so when we heal things together in this life, we are also healing those things on behalf of the other versions of us in other lives that are working together through this relationship as well. So it's a, it's a very cool thing to understand that when you have that kind of soul connection to somebody, it's really because it's not just this one life, it's all of these different fractals of you learning and experiencing and growing with each other.

Sophie Bauer:

Yeah. And it's so wild that we have access to all of that information.

Kat Guthrie:

You sound super covered up. What just happened? Oh, that. Yep, that fix it. Would you do? Oh,

Sophie Bauer:

That's weird. I think I just had something over the speaker. Oh, okay.

Kat Guthrie:

Yeah, that'll do it.

Sophie Bauer:

Alright. So where were we? Oh, I think it's so wild that we have access to all of this past life information. I mean, not that everybody has access to all of their past lives. But the fact that we are pursuing this actively, it's just really fascinating to uncover all the little keys from like, the things we were working on in the other lives and how we're resolving it in this life or continuing it in this life and how it will continue in future lives and like, the planned lives that we have for the future, like it's so fun and fascinating to do that in partnership in partnership. Yeah.

Kat Guthrie:

It's so cool. We're so cool.

Sophie Bauer:

We're so cool, lol. I think so I think we're pretty dang cool. You know? Yeah,

Kat Guthrie:

Not for everybody's taste of cool. But I like it.

Sophie Bauer:

I like us. I like us, we're my favorite, we're my favorite friends.

Kat Guthrie:

Yes, that is that is accurate. Oh, and then yeah, and the last thing I think we really wanted to talk about was just how our relationship has shifted, since we decided to do the podcast together. And we've already shared with you a bit about the Costa Rica adventure, and what that's been, you know, I think like, like getting into this kind of relationship with somebody where, you know, you're building something together, you're communicating every single day, multiple times a day. And it's not just the podcast that we're talking about, you know, Sophie and I talk about our healing experiences, because we are rapidly healing and moving into another dimension. And, you know, it's, it's a very intense relationship, to just be sharing all of these deep things about yourself on a constant basis, and working through things when they come up together as a team. You know, it's really, I think it's a great example of the idea that like relationships, regardless of whether they are romantic, or friendship, or business, like they require, if you want to have a really great relationship, they require the best of you. And that's one of the reasons why I appreciate being with you so much is that you require the best of me, and you also love me, when I am bringing the shittiest version of myself to you, you know, when I'm bringing the worst of me to you, you are also still totally on board with it. You don't stop loving me just because I'm in a bitchy mood, you know, like, you, that's it's it, and it doesn't matter, the fact that it's friendship, that it's a business relationship, like it, it doesn't matter, it's a relationship, we are in relationship with each other, and, and we keep upping the ante for each other. And that is just that's what I'm here for, man. That is what I'm here for.

Sophie Bauer:

Mm hmm. Yeah, it's so cool. Because I feel like you know, in general, our relationship, we always held really high expectations for ourselves and to each other. But as our relationship transitioned to a business lens, as well as a friendship lens, the stakes got higher, you know, and we continue to raise the stakes everyday I feel like and raise the level of love and commitment and communication. And, you know, that's one thing that's become really clear, in our, in our process of transitioning is that communication is not something that you can slack on, like, we have to over communicate, we have to be so emotionally eloquent. And just be able to articulate all of the emotions that are going on because, you know, we're making big decisions together, we're moving through our own triggers or traumas or whatever, whether it's a personal lens or a business lens. And yeah, it's just really bringing in that vulnerability and that flexibility to minimize the ego right and get resourceful together to find solutions and to create happy compromise when we need to and wow, all the things. Yeah, it's it's intense, but it's amazing.

Kat Guthrie:

Well, you know, if you're going to have an intense relationship, it is might it might as be might as well be in a way that helps you grow rather than, you know, the other thing.

Sophie Bauer:

Yes. 100%. So, thanks for doing it with me. Thanks for doing the thing.

Kat Guthrie:

Ah, thank you for doing the thing with me. And thank you to everybody who has listened to us wax poetic about how much we love each other.

Sophie Bauer:

If anything, I just I hope it's, I hope we can be a good example for creating deeper connections with with all of the beautiful people that are on planet Earth, because there's so much opportunity to create deep connection if you're intentional and you allow yourself to be vulnerable and raw and honest and communicate. So that's what I'll say about that. Boom baby.

Kat Guthrie:

Mic drop. I love it. Thank you all everybody for listening. We love you so much. Sophie, I love you so much. And we'll catch you on our next episode.

Sophie Bauer:

Yes, love you all so much. Love you Kat. Thank you for being here. And we'll see you later.
