Mindset, Motivation and Meditation with Krysti Turznik
I am excited to bring my next guest onto the show. Her name is Krysti Turznik. She’s a number one bestselling author. She’s a motivational speaker and she’s also a life coach. She has a master’s degree in metaphysics and a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. She’s blending that left-brain right-brain, bringing the woo-woo stuff. She’s an ordained minister and she’s also a consulting hypnotist, which I found fascinating. For about two decades she’s helped people get out of their own way and live the life they were meant to live and isn’t that what we all want? I love the way she does it and that’s why I invited her here. Krysti does it through mindset, motivation and meditation. She shows people how to create the life of miracles and magic where every day feels like a day at the beach. For those of you who know me, you know that I love my days at the beach. Krysti lives in Wisconsin with her husband, daughter, and four cats. Welcome to Heartrepreneur Radio, Krysti.
Thank you so much, Terri. I’m so happy to be here.
I’m excited to be with you, and I’m so fascinated whenever I meet someone who has a blend of science and yet has interest in something that might be a little bit more woo-woo, miracles, magic. How did you come to blend those two?
For me, it was a journey. I started my life needing to know the answers for how life worked, which led me to the biology background and learning how the physical aspects of life work. At some point, I started to realize that I didn’t understand everything about what was going on and if there was a bigger piece that was missing with that. That ended up being the spirituality aspect. There were two significant events have pushed me to start to ask those deeper questions and dive into the spirituality and figure out how to blend all of these things together. The first one was the birth of my daughter and then the second one was the death of my father. Both of those things came together in a very short period of time to force the intersection to get the answers that I was searching for.
I was very scientific. I have a medical degree and all healthcare science. Then in 1996, my mother passed away of Emphysema and seven days later, my girlfriend, Marnie, died of breast cancer at the age of 40. All of the sudden, everything in my life change and I found spirituality, which I never had, and I got interested in the way the universe worked. Literally that’s what caused me to walk out of my corporate job and get into doing the work I do, which is helping people establish the businesses of their dreams. Why is that it feels important to you? What’s the mission? What’s the passion behind what you’re doing? What’s the reason? What’s the big why it has to be helping people in this way?
For me, it’s knowing that each and every one of us has an inner calling that is beckoning us to something greater than what it is that we’re living. I believe it’s our life purpose, our passions that are wanting us to embrace them fully because we’re all here to light up the world in our own special way. My mission is to help people have the confidence to believe in themselves and the choices that they make and know that everything that they are and have experienced in their life has happened for a reason. It can propel them to taking a step into who it is that they are meant to be when they embrace their authentic self.
What’s the typical client? Who comes to you? Maybe you can give us the natural scenario on what kind of work you do with a client who comes to you.
The most typical client that comes is a woman who tends to be somewhere in her 40’s or so and she has done everything that she thought that she was supposed to do. She has gone to school. She’s got a job, she started a family and a life, but something feels like it’s missing. Although she’s very grateful for everything that she has, she feels like she hasn’t honored that deepest inner part of her. She’s ready to step into who she is and embrace that because she knows that time is ticking and she needs to start taking action on who it is that she can be.
When clients work with me, I help them to get clarity on what it is that they feel called to do. Then we establish a strategy in order to allow them to move forward to accomplish those things. While we’re doing so, we need to address a lot mindset issues, talk a lot about self-sabotage and self-confidence and stress reduction because all of those things going together to either make it easy for us to accomplish our goals or can make a tremendous burden and slows down significantly if we haven’t mastered those.
I work with people in their businesses not only to get to get out of their way, but to find their passion and do the work that they were meant to live. It’s so cool that you’re coming on the life coaching aspect in a very similar way. I don’t know if you know that you’ve done something so right that I teach. Mindset, motivation, meditation.
I always teach people to have a three-word system and that the best three-word system start with B, M, or P because people have an easier time remembering them. I remembered your words. I had read what a little bit about you and I said, “I can remember this mindset, motivation, meditation.” I love those words and it follows a prescriptive formula. Take us through this a little bit. What’s maybe one quick mindset tip you can give the audience?
The first thing that you can start to do is to have an awareness of the dialogue that is taking place within yourself. Without any judgment, be aware of the thoughts that you’re thinking. Are they in alignment with the ultimate outcome and goals that you’re setting for yourself or are they causing the resistance? Are they accomplishing something opposed to what it is that you’re looking for, so having that awareness without judgment. Once you have an idea of whether or not those thoughts are serving you, then you have an opportunity to modify the lines that are not fitting in alignment with your ultimate goals.
I love that you’re giving us some things that we can do right now. What about motivation? Is there a tip for motivation?
What I would say is understanding your deepest why of why you want to accomplish something because as we’re moving through and create a new life for ourselves, things are always going to be coming up. That’s where some of the self-sabotaging, some of the resistance starts to present itself and sometimes we get in our state where we feel such a lack of energy or motivation that we don’t want to get through. If you understand your deeper why, like, “Why am I doing this? Why am I going through all of this effort and the struggle?” It helps you to overcome any obstacle or limitation that you might be experiencing it and keeping focused on that big why will help make it easier for you.
I love when we get tips that we can put in effect. Then talk to us about what meditation means to you because I’ve heard so many people describe meditation in different ways, so what does meditation mean to you?
To me, meditation is allowing you to connect with the deeper part of you, that silent whisper or that very quiet whisper that’s always in the back of mind. It’s calming down all of the outside thoughts and the noise and then settling down your internal thoughts so that you can start to hear those whispers from your deepest soul and the understanding what it is that you are wanting for yourself, how it is that you’re wanting to experience, what is it is that you want to feel or to experience or to have. Then taking action on those things, so it allows you to look at the simplest step to connect with who it is that you are at your deepest level.
I have clients that say things to me, and maybe you can address this, “I can’t meditate. I found it difficult. I tried it, I gave it up. It doesn’t work for me.” What would you say to someone like that? Any tips?
It’s an art that you attend to need to learn. Sometimes, it comes easier for some people. Others have to work at it. A lot of times, the feedback that I hear is people find that as they start, they get random thoughts starting to come through the mind and they think that when they have those thoughts, that they have failed. What you need to do is you need to allow yourself to witness those thoughts, but don’t give them energy. Notice if you’re having a thought of planning or if you’re having a worrying thought and say hello and then let it go. Don’t dive into those thoughts and then direct your attention back to your breath, back to your inner focus of what it is that you’re accomplishing and knowing that it’s going to be an up and down journey. Some days are easier, and some days are a little bit more of a struggle, but the more that you keep at it, like a muscle, the easier it’s going to be for you.
I’m glad that you said that because people start to meditate and then they start going, “My mind wandered. I’m not good at it. I’m no good at it. I’m failing.” My experience was the day that I said, “I’m going to do the best I can do and I’m going to see what and I’m going to do the best I can do tomorrow and the best I can do tomorrow.” All of a sudden, I did find a way of getting my mind to be quiet, the chatter to stop, and I find I’m so much more grounded when I meditate.
It’s almost like even different to a place of eternal peace and rest and rejuvenate yourself and replenish everything that had been missing, so you have the energy and the motivation to move forward with more purpose and more passion in your life.
My favorite words, Krysti, purpose, passion. I love how you are blending those. I’m going to call them with three M’s. How you’re blending that together, it definitely differentiates you. Definitely makes you someone to watch. Tell us a little bit about your number one bestselling book, if you don’t mind.
I have launched my book. It’s called Mindset Magic: Using Scientific and Spiritual Principles to Create Your Life. It is a blending of the science and the spirituality coming together, so you can understand the physical parts of how your mindset works. Then once you have that knowledge of how the mind works of utilizing the underlying principles of the universe so that you can leverage what it is that you’re experiencing and bring your goals to you so much faster and easier. With this book, I was very fortunate that I had received endorsement from Michael Bernard Beckwith. That was quite a blessing that he also saw the value in the work that I’m doing.
I had the honor of spending a day with him and having lunch with him and he touched my soul. That is phenomenal. Where can we get a copy of your book?
You can get a copy directly on Amazon or there’s a link on my website. It’s www.Powerful-Mind.com and it’s on the homepage there.
Krysti, you are phenomenal. You’re someone to watch and to connect with. It feels like you have found your calling and are bringing that to other people, and I honor the work that you do. You want to connect with Krysti, definitely get her book. I would love for the audience to invite them to find out more about your process. It’s a process that I definitely resonate with you think would make a difference for them and their lives. Any quick last-minute word, Krysti?
Who it is that you are in this moment is exactly who you need to be in order to take yourself to the next person that you are becoming, so allow yourself to trust who it is that you are and know that you are on your path and that everything is beautiful.

About Krysti Turznik
Hi, I’m Krysti Turznik. I’m a motivational speaker, #1 best-selling author, life coach, and hypnotist. I help people how to create a live that speaks to their soul with meaning and value. Through mindset, motivation, and meditation I show them how to establish a deeper spiritual connection so they can experience a life of miracles and magic where every day feels like a day at the beach.
I have an ability to read between the lines and hear what people are not saying, quickly identify their areas of self-sabotage or limiting beliefs, and help them to shift those to a more empowering mindset that is based upon self-love, value, and worth.
I help them to find their own guidance, direction, and answers from within. Because of this, those who work with me receive extremely valuable information and a personalized strategy on exactly what they need to do to achieve their goals. As a result, they stop their inner struggle, feel confident in their choices, and experience a life filled with miracles and magic where every day feels like a day at the beach. At the heart of it, I teach them how to unlock their potential, and experience their possibilities!
I’m passionate about helping women believe in themselves, their value, and their worth. I am uplifted when I can help others stop hiding their true selves, stop living in fear, playing small, and living for everyone but themselves. My own spirit is elevated when someone understands at their heart-level that they are more powerful than the power they have claimed, and that they matter and are here to change the world in their own special and important way. I invite them to shine more brightly in the world so they can live their purpose
