Your Personal Power

Uncertainty – in ourselves, in what’s going to happen next, in our world – can be disconcerting and even scary. It can leave us feeling as if we’re being swept away by some force that we have no control over. This is a perfect time to remember a most effective ally – your own Personal …

Allowing Your Dreams

Now is an excellent time to Dream. It’s a perfect time to go inside and decide what you want. What do you want? What do you most want? It’s a difficult question for many. People are afraid to ask it sometimes because they are afraid of the answers or because they think it’s pointless because …

Discernment at Your Fingertips
