Welcome to the Trust Talk Sessions. I’m Joni and I am here with my friend and soul sister Katt Tozier. Today I’m delighted to introduce you to Katt. She was originally with me on episode 24 The Power of Invocation. That was three years ago, and Katt is a mystic. She’s a medicine woman and a spiritual mentor. She specializes in trauma recovery work and integrated resilience, and she is here today to join us to dive into this topic of trust. Welcome, Katt.
Thank you, Joni. I’m really excited to be here and I cannot believe it’s been three years already since we first had a conversation together on your wonderful podcast. So thanks so much for doing this work all these years and then for inviting me back today.
Oh, it’s my great, great pleasure. And I, I believe that you have some real gems on this subject of trust in part, just from the space you’re living from right now. So I would just love to invite you to dive in and tell us what’s, what’s been going on and how this pings you related to trust.
Well, I’m definitely living in a state of complete and total trust right now. My very encapsulated backstory is in the year 2013, my entire life collapsed. My husband had an affair and ended the marriage. My youngest child graduated high school and headed off to college. So after 32 years of mothering on a daily basis, my nest was empty. My mother passed in April of 2013 and as I found myself alone that fall with just my dog, I discovered he had terminal kidney cancer. And so this, the year 2013 was this year of everything that I had ever known and done kind of collapsing and starting to reinvent myself. And I came out of a domestic abuse childhood and I carried that into my adult life and you know, relationships in my adult life. And so for me, in 2013 when that situation was happening, a great deal of what I was working with in reinventing myself was learning to trust myself at that time.
And learning to trust in general, trust people, trust men, trust the divine trust spirit. And I moved forward from 2013 into doing my virtual work and beginning to work with others with trauma recovery and work with them around creating resilience as I, you know, hand-in-hand created my own. And that led me to in the middle of December 2019 just a few months ago to signing a lease and gathering a group of local people who are sacred healers as well, and forming a sacred healing center in a 5,000 square foot space here locally where I live in central Maine. And we opened our doors on February 1st, 2020 and six weeks later on March 13th of 2020 we closed those doors originally temporarily and ultimately permanently because you can’t take a six week old business and sustain that business through a situation like our current COVID pandemic.
And so, you know, what that’s meant for me personally is I also had left a relationship at the beginning of September last year. And so currently I reside by myself, so I have no other household income. You know, the business is now closed. We’ve been, you know, I had independent practitioners rather than employees or so, I did not qualify for any of the federal assistance because it’s all employee based. In the state of Maine, unemployment was way, way behind in processing. And because I’ve been self employed since 1995 that was an issue. But then ultimately they opened it up for self employed people as well. And it’s been a slow and agonizing process there since they opened it. The beginning of May. So you know, my personal experience in this covid process has been similar to 2013 where the whole foundation of my life kind of collapsed out from under me other than the fact that my dog is healthy and my dog is not dying.
I do have a healthy dog at this juncture, but I found myself, you know, over this last couple of months, once again re, you know, thinking about creating a new foundation, thinking about what I’m going to be when I grow up, thinking about moving forward again.
And the interesting thing that I’ve noticed is just how much at peace I’ve actually been, you know, comparatively because it was just, you know, it’s recent history, 2013 isn’t that long ago and I’ve lived a lot of life from 2013 to 2020 as I’m sure a lot of people can identify with. But at the same time, 2013 was recently enough ago in my life that I can compare the difference to the degree of devastation, emotional devastation, physical devastation, a mental devastation and anxiety that I went through in 2013 as everything collapsed around me compared to 2020 when you know, everything is collapsing around me and I’m still just at peace because I know spirit has my back.
I know spirit has a plan, I know spirit will provide and guide. And because I’ve learned totally to trust, looking inward, consulting my gut, consulting, my instincts, consulting my intuition, being able to ask myself what my heart’s desires are, what do I really want, what really matters. And then, you know, using meditative tools and EFT and you know, a whole collection of tools that I have at my disposal and that I teach others around emotional regulation in order to not completely escalate off the charts in this, you know, unprecedented situation with I’m sure something you can appreciate Joni, because I know you’re empathic in the way that I am. I’m also feeling everybody else’s fear. I’m also feeling everybody else’s anxiety. So yeah. So that’s sort of the story is everything’s just kind of collapsed and pulled out from under me and I’ve been able to stay peaceful and stay emotionally resilient in the process, which is this miracle thing to me.
Yeah, it is. It is a miracle. And I, I keep getting this vision of the Phoenix rising from the ashes and almost like that is some of your sacred medicine is like this Phoenix medicine. And it’s interesting because you and I were talking beforehand, I want to just mention, so today we are doing a giveaway and Katt is sharing a gift to one of our lucky listeners, a 90 minute Elemental Energy Astrology reading. That’s a mouthful. But what we were talking about beforehand was the different elements that are in our chart related to earth, air, fire and water. And you had said that there is no fire in your chart, but, but I keep getting this really clear sense of you carrying Phoenix medicine. So that is kind of confounding to me. It’s like how does that happen?
Well, you know, as you were just saying about the, the elemental energy piece, everyone’s chart, you know, there’s the four elements, fire, earth, air and water. Everyone has a combination of them among the number of planets that are makeup our individual natal chart. And to put that in perspective, a natal chart is so unique to you that it will be 26,000 years before somebody has your exact natal chart again. So it’s this really, really unique blueprint and signature for every individual. And people have either one dominant or two co-dominant elements and then the others in some ratio. And often there’s a missing element. And as you said, for me it’s, I’m missing fire, I’m water, water everywhere. I’ve got this huge overabundance of water, which is about emotion, intuition, nurture, mothering, you know, all of these, this very emotional energy, feminine energy kinds of things and no fire.
So what that means for me is I have to be first of all, aware of calming the water energy and learning those great emotional regulation skills. And you know, being able to minimize some of the water so that I’m not just drowning all the time, literally in any mode as an emotional mess and drowning and emotional meltdown. But I also need to cultivate fire. Because fire is spiritual energy. Fire is passion. Fire is, you know, light a fire under your butt and get something accomplished. And so for me in understanding my own elemental energy is calm down the water, cultivate the fire, you know, and then for me, earth and air just kind of, I have a little earth, I have a little air, so I don’t have to work with them as conscientiously all the time because they are there. And they’re not there in an overabundance. They’re a little under abundance. So you know, it’s wise to have it kind of on the back burner of awareness. But the big pieces for me are, are calming the, the water, the emotional energy and cultivating the fire. The spiritual.
Yes. Which is why you’re so able to help your clients, your mentorship clients with learning those resilience skills. It’s like, wow, this is, it’s like going to the Olympics in a way instead of every four ever. It’s been seven years. It’s like you get to go to the emotional Olympics again, Katt.
Hmm. That’s a good way of putting it. And you know, coming out of a childhood of domestic abuse and early, you know, the early years of my, my marital life and relationship life, you know, recreating that environment of domestic abuse. I am a person who has, has struggled with anxiety for decades, PTSD for decades, hypervigilance for decades. And so, you know, this Covid situation’s, why I said it’s a miracle that I have been at peace even though everything is collapsing around me. Once again in my personal, you know, my personal experience of Covid and you know, to, to step have stepped so far through hypervigilance, anxiety and PTSD in, you know, in creating especially emotional regulation and you know, other things as well. But especially emotional regulation. It really is this miraculous process. And you know, everybody’s experiencing so much trauma and there’s so much collateral stuff happening right now in terms of, you know, domestic violence and substance struggles with substances, whether that’s, you know, alcohol, drugs, sugar, you know, food, you know, obviously economic, you know, just situation after situation after situation. And this is all about trauma, fear, anxiety, emotion, you know, it’s just an unbelievable time. And the ability to, the ability to, one of the things I say is trust, truth and resilience = empowerment.
Because when you can trust yourself, you can trust, you can trust the divine and the divine within you. And trusting, trusting yourself when you can be in alignment with your personal truth and the truth, you know the truth in the world as it is right for you. And you can cultivate integrated resilience. So body, mind, spirit, resilience with tools for your physical wellness, emotional wellness, mental wellness, and spiritual wellness, then you are truly empowered.
Yes. Then you can meet whatever storm comes your way.
Well, I want to ask if there’s anything else you want to share just about the astrology reading, and I know that you’ve said even if someone doesn’t win that today, that’s something that someone could go to your website and purchase for themselves if they were interested. Yes?
Absolutely. Yes. And I do, you know, this particular reading, the Elemental Energy reading is specifically around assessing the ratio of elements in a natal chart. But of course the natal chart reveals layers and layers of information, all different kinds of things. And so I do have a variety of astrology type readings that I do. And one of the reasons why astrology fits into this whole paradigm of the work that I do is it’s part of that truth. It’s part of that truth element. It’s part of your natal chart, like I said, 26,000 years before somebody else has your exact makeup of your natal chart. And that says a lot about the individuality that is revealed in, you know, in an astrological chart. And so part of why I use astrology is as a lens because it helps people get really aligned with the truth around their personal self, essential self and personal journey, their ways of relating and communicating in the world.
Their ways of manifesting money and material possessions and all things manifestation in the world. And then their spiritual journey. The things, the soul evolution they came here for and the purpose they came to fulfill, the legacy they came to create. And all of that’s in a natal chart. So the, and the elemental energy is specifically, you know, getting that, how are you wired? Are you wired toward watery emotion? Are you wired toward mental air? Are you wired toward spiritual fire? Are you wired toward physical earth? And what combination thereof? So that’s what this particular reading is around – it’s essentially the mind, body, spirit version of astrology. It’s the integration of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and how does that ratio look for you?
Yeah. So it provides some clarity, a depth of clarity that you might not get in other ways it sounds like.
Absolutely, positively. So, yeah, I’ve done mini versions of this reading at mind, body, spirit festivals here in my local central Maine area. You know, so somebody walking up to my table and they’re going, sure, that sounds cool. They register, they pay their 20 bucks or whatever. And we sit down and I created a chart for them in a minute and a half. And then I start talking to them and I’ve watched people be just blown away.
How can you possibly know that when you don’t know me and I don’t know you and I just sat down here and you just made this chart and you haven’t studied it or really know that about me. And it’s because it is elementally based, the entire, you know, mother earth is surrounding, you know, the whole energy of mother earth is fire, earth, air, water, energy. And then of course we add spirit and you know, so many systems Ayurvedic and, Acupressure, acupuncture, energy meridians, just you know, chakras so many things relate to fire, earth, air, water, energy with the addition of spirit. And when you understand how that vibration is for you personally, so you can align with your highest vibration, you’re going to manifest, you’re going to manifest the life you want when you align with your highest possible vibration.
Right? Yes. And you can let go of anything that’s not in alignment with that.
Exactly. Yes. And I mean there’s so many things we could talk for hours, things that are, are available by way of information in a natal chart, astrology. And then it goes on from there to progress charts that are predictive to later, specific years in life. And it goes on to other things that are transits, what’s going on in the heavens right now, this moment. And how is that interacting with your natal energy, you know, so where are you good. You’re going to trip up, you know, or, or get a bonus or a boot, you know.
Yes. So if someone was interested in that, they could also reach out to you at your website as well. Oxford and that website is Venus Arising. It’s in the show notes but it’s Venusarising.com. So we are going to need to bring this to a close Katt. It’s been dynamic and wonderful as always and such an honor and a delight to connect with you again.

You’re most welcome and it’s absolutely great to have a chance to connect with you again, Joni and I appreciate once again the opportunity to be here and chat with you and for your listeners to hear that it is possible to be a person who is wired for anxiety and emotion and PTSD and hypervigilance.
