Katrina Pfannkuch – Creative Katrina
I believe creativity is how you show up and create anything in your life. If you aren’t clear on what you want to create, how to open up your heart to create it, or feel you lack creative ability altogether, you aren’t alone. We’ve all been there — including me.
I have a passion for guiding others to shift their perception about their natural gifts to live more in the creative flow and call on their intuition as a tool. I do this through teaching, coaching and supporting people with practical tools and intuitive guidance, enabling them to really look at themselves and the world around them differently.
My work also includes identifying creative blocks and fears, then helping you find ways to tap into your intuition to build a flow between your inner guidance and natural creativity. Creativity and intuition are one in the same energy. As one opens, the other does as well.
In a nutshell – I act as a guide to support you in building a unique path to inner transformation to embrace all of who you are, and in crafting a personal practice to build, grow and strengthen that inner relationship in a mindful way. Then intuition and creativity can operate more freely as one clear flow.
My experience as a professional writer, blogger and creativity consultant, combined with my intuitive gifts and training as a Reiki Master and healer, enables me to help you get a clear sense of what’s going on, guide you through creative blocks and challenges, and offer clear explanations of what’s happening and how to shift it. I’m also an emapth, HSP (highly sensitive person) and INFP, so I understand the challenges associated with being a sensitive creative spirit.
I’m passionate about helping solopreneurs, entrepreneurs, creatives, empaths and HSP’s who want to get in touch with their natural creative selves more deeply and craft a more grounded way of approaching their work and creativity. Together, we will tap into what’s in your heart, and open a path to strengthening the connection with your inner guidance and natural creative gifts to embrace transformation.
In addition to my blog, I also co-host a podcast called Flirting with Enlightenment with my friend Jamie McConochie, a spiritual coach and former Hindu Monk. Each week we cover everyday life type of topics and offer suggestions on how to tap into your inner wisdom from a creative and spiritual perspective. You can listen on our website, on iTunes or Stitcher.
My biggest strength: I “hear beneath the words”, which is a fancy way of saying I see the limitations you create and how you talk yourself out of your awesomeness. I’m then able to take that information and highlight ways for you to 1). Move past blocks and limitations and/or 2). Clarify ways you can combine your strengths and desires into something that serves you personally and in your business and/or. 3). Open up to a path of self-discovery and transformation.
What do I get out of this? I’m fascinated with what inspires people to create and how they choose to share it with the world. Above all, I love helping people cut through the old layers to expand into new, amazing depths of creative expression, confidence and self-love.
My core essence: Grounded clarity infused with intuitive. empathic insights. I’m also sassy, fun and love to laugh. A lot. Just want to give you a heads up in case you find lightheartedness offensive and are altogether too serious. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Confused on how to say my last name?
It’s pronounced Fan-cook and means pancake in German. Now you know why I’ve created a more web-friendly persona, Creative Katrina, to make things easier for all of us. And yes, some friends do call me pancake.
