MISSION AND PURPOSE
The Divergent Musician's purpose is to share insight, inspire, and relate to others interested in spiritual growth and self-development; promote emotional, mental, spiritual healing and wellbeing among the general public. Part of the Divergent Musician mission is to provide general divinations readings on the channel. Private divination reading can be purchased on the booking page.
The Divergent Musician Journey (Katie's Journey) is about self-transformation, healing, and empowerment. I share a look into my life as an instrumentalist (French horn), Clairsentient Empath, and Diviner. Reflecting on life lessons, themes, & topics, I dive into the realms of eclectic spirituality, higher consciousness, & psychology on this channel; all of which has helped me survive a rather traumatic life. ABOUT KATIE A. BERGLOF
Born in El Salvador (along with her twin sister Allie), adopted and raised in North Dakota, she grew up on a farm in the small town of Sherwood on the Canadian border. Her adoptive family is of Scandinavian (Norwegian and Swedish) heritage.
Katie's life was rather turbulent as she suffered from cyclical abuse and psychological trauma both throughout early-childhood and adulthood; including experiencing rare disorders, diseases, odd trials and tribulations. She spent many periods of her life healing, self-transforming, and rebuilding her life from the ground up.
Katie is a former classical musician, music educator, and arts administrator. In late 2009 she developed a rare neurological disorder called "Musician's Focal Dystonia" and started speaking out about her experience and documenting her recovery. It's still quite taboo to speak openly about musician injuries, health, and wellbeing in the profession; especially surrounding something as mysterious and incurable as this Focal Dystonia. Her blog spanning over a decade, thoroughly documented her progress through videos, writing, and observations. There are no other current documentations out there that exist. There's a lot of stigma that surrounds it. Therefore she became well known as an advocate and guide through her blog "Living with Embouchure Dystonia" and series "Musicians with Dystonia & Injury Live Talk".
Faith and spirituality have always been a central part of Katie's life, yet she hid her love for metaphysics combined with her Unitarian Universalist approach to life from the public. She was highly empathic and saw spirits and past loved ones visit her during her childhood years. Because she was use to being seen as different her whole life and was raised in a conservative Lutheran family, she suppressed her experiences and non-orthodox views as much as possible. In adulthood she refused to acknowledge her increasing empathic traits, and growing interest in mysticism, esotericism, metaphysics, occult, and ESP/seer/divination. In 2013 she found others who shared similar experiences and helped her feel safe to be her true self; but she kept tarot groups, mediumship groups, and psychic development groups a secret - calling it a hobby around friends and family who knew about it. After a miscarriage, several hospitalizations, health ailments, divorce, moving, two major surgeries, and death in the family all in the span of a year, she started experiencing what is called a "Dark Night of the Soul" or existential crisis. Katie was diagnosed with C-PTSD and Dissociation Disorder and this naturally instigated a Spiritual Ascension/Awakening without her even knowing. Completely unaware that she was experiencing "Kundalini Rising" symptoms, Katie panicked at the thought of something else going wrong with her. Her doctors called for x-rays of her spine, hormone levels checked, re-tested for COVID, did a full physical, plus bloodwork. Physicians could not find anything wrong....she was actually better than ever. Not long after, her suppressedClairvoyance unravelled in full swing. Throughout this intense spiritual and emotional healing process, she learned how to self-love, choose empowerment, let go of limiting mindsets, focus on what serves her highest good and divine purpose, break old cycles/patterns, etc. and the importance of honoring ones true self above all else. And so that is what the Divergent Musician Journey is all about on her channel: "Healing and empowerment through spiritual growth and self-development."
