Many of us grew up in a culture that taught us to cling to the structure of the masculine while shunning the emotions and chaos of the feminine. However, it is never too late to discover the unique wisdom and strengths in both of these forces by bringing balance to the yin and yang within. Cate Montana reveals the life-long journey that led her to embrace and embody her own feminine and masculine strengths in this interview with Regina Meredith originally webcast June 3, 2014.

Cate Montana is a freelance writer and editor who specializes in the re-awakening of feminine consciousness, metaphysics, physics and the meeting ground between science and mysticism. Her work focuses on self-realization, the physics of consciousness, and implementing feminine values and sustainable lifestyles. She is the author of of Unearthing Venus: Search for the Woman Within and co-author of The Heart of the Matter: A Simple Guide to Discovering Gifts in Strange Wrapping Paper with Dr. Darren Weissman.

As a young woman, 28 years old, I am already blown away by the depth of our DNA. I have always felt the struggle of these dark, light, wild, peaceful, compassionate, earth-loving aspects within myself. Cate Montana you have touched on everything with your openness to life unbound! Regina, I am always in awe of your interviews, the content, your thought process...everything is beyond intelligent, beautiful, and enlightening. Finding Gaiam tv has been life changing. Regina, your interviews and journalism is my ultimate joy. When many of my friends are at the bar on a Friday night, I have been known to stay at home lol. Thank you, to you both. Thank you for being beautiful women I look up to. Womanhood is a blessing, an adventure not for the timid, and knowing the road becomes more and more interesting as I go brings colorful excitement to every day.
Deepest Thanks,

I loved this interview so much! I have had a similar life path of recalling distant life memories of sexual subjugation, torture and murder, even flashes of mind control and sexual torture within MK Ultra, most of these memories being in child form. I did have a religious upbringing in this lifetime during my childhood and early adulthood in Mormonism and have come into my mid-life learning how to embrace and embody my authentic womanhood after a carrier based on survival rather than my life passion. I only told some people of my past life memories, but revealing only made me question myself and feel isolated. I am so glad you have shared your story. I don't feel alone in my experiences anymore. As far as your experience of fundamental christian dogma in later life, you obviously needed to revisit something. And look at what you have gained from it! Don't worry about the judgement for going there. It is for the fact that you didn't stay there and that you are honouring and surrendering to your own unique life journey. You are one brave woman! Blessings to you, Cate.

Unbelievable interview. She may be fully embodied as completely masculine and completely feminine. Her journey tells a strong persuasion to both!

I found the interview kind of disturbing because after decades trying to find her self Cate Montana allowed another man to insinuate that to be a woman was a sin. I believe that no human has the right to base judgement on another. NO ONE, when we allow ourselves to believe that another person know more about the creator than someone else then we give up our mind and our individuality in order to fit in. If the creator wanted everyone to be the same than there would be one brain and you would be connected to it without choice., but we are not, so when you allow another to think for you then you are doing the same thing. It is fear that creates the desire to control, not love. When we love ourselves enough to know that the creator loves us no matter what and we don't have to do anything to earn it than we will realize you don't need to go anywhere or talk to anyone special to connect to the creator. And that is what frightens people, because who would these people be if they didn't have followers.

It appears to me that sometimes people think they are getting to know themselves through meditation and other mystical experiences when they are actually still merely having experiences outside themselves. I am sure Cate has had many amazing experiences, but I would suggest she spend less time isolating herself in obscure worldly locations and more time shutting out the noise of the world wherever she is then listening only to her own inner voice. Perhaps, she would then find she has been looking for love in all the wrong places. Cate, I wish you true love and abundant peace. Your story is not yet complete. I am looking forward to hearing your next chapter.

I love the Open Minds series and wait anxiously for each new episode. However, there was one interchange between Regina and Cate in this episode that left me feeling a little disappointed. I was raised as a fundamentalist Christian and came out of that culture in the late 1990's when I began to feel that all the judgment and condemnation actually experienced when exposed to that culture did not fit with the words of "love" that were coming from the pulpit. I agree that the "religious right" has become a culture that has brought shame and ridicule upon itself due to belief systems that just don't fit right with cultural reality anymore. However, my disappointment is rooted in the way that Cate labeled the fundamentalist Christian culture as a "demonic" influence and Regina joined in with the judgment of a group that does not believe exactly as these two women do. Are not fundamentalist Christians just as deserving of unconditional love as the rest of us? Please, tell me I have not aligned myself with another group hell bent on bashing any other group that doesn't carry the same belief system they do. And, please, tell me Cate's next book, as advertised on the episode, is not just a bashing fest heaping ridicule and persecution upon fundamentalist Christians.

I am thoroughly enjoying it about 2/3 through. Although I did not have the tenacity to plow through with the gusto that Cate did, I can so relate to so many issues that she experienced. It is giving me much food for thought that I knew was there but thought I had really resolved - then again maybe not so fully resolved as I had believed. Also giving me new things to take another look at - how's that working really?

I can't wait for her next book - please have Hay House speed up the process PLEASE!

Thanks again for a wonderful interview Regina!

What started out for me to be a less than interesting topic, as Cate spoke, I grew more and more intrigued with her whole story. Her finale which seems to have shock value, was not a shock to me. Many many years of spiritual growth can, in a flash, drop you on your head leaving you wondering how this could have happened. We get through it and hopefully laugh at the mystery and show respect for ourselves by picking up and forging on ahead....

Excellent interview - thank you, Regina! I loved Cate's memoir as well, extremely engaging, and so important for our times.

I am still in shock over the last chapter of Cate Montana's life. How could she? Great interview. Thank you Regina. You are the best!

It could happen to anyone. After shock, embarrassment, bewilderment and grief, we pick up our broken hearts/minds/spirits and get going again.
