    EP91 REPOSTEP56 - Change your Dialogue So Your Story Changes - with Jenny Ogilvie

    EP91 REPOSTEP56 - Change your Dialogue So Your Story Changes - with Jenny Ogilvie

    While I am on a podcast break I will be reposting an episode or two of my old episodes!  Here is one I really enjoyed with Jennie Ogilvie - EP56.
     
    Have you ever met someone and you walk away from the conversation you've had a bit stunned, and a whole lot relieved? Those are the emotions I had after having a recent reading with my next guest.
    Jennie Ogilvie is here today and we discuss something that I need to work on daily - changing my dialogue so my story changes.
    Jennie is known as Canada's Unconventional Medium - and I know this going into every reading I have with her, but for some reason this time I thought maybe she'd bring through my brother and just give me "comfort".....I actually said those words to her. And she proceeded to give me her no BS method of helping me really dig deep into what it is I was needing at that moment in my life....not wanting....but what I was needing. So yeah, at first I was stunned....but then I was soooo relieved that I got the clarity I was looking for.

    EP89 - Dancing In The Rain, Chapters 1 to 3, with Tiff Carson

    I did it!!  I finished recording the audiobook format for my book "Dancing in the Rain"!  Because I have been completely consumed with finishing this last part of my book journey, I haven't had time to produce a podcast episode. 
    Sooooo, I thought I would share the first 3 chapters of my book, in audio format!
    I'd love to hear your thoughts on them.  If you'd like to hear more, send me a message, let me know!  I'd love your feedback.  I may release 3 more later this week!

You are helping so many by telling your story with these situations so they too may recognize what these precious children are having to deal with in their minds. Yes this is real people and until one accepts it does exist these children or even adults as well will continue to struggle.

Thank you Tiffany.❤️❤️ Episode 7: I am so grateful to you, Tiffany for taking me with you to this amazing ADHD Conference in Kelowna!!

Your organization skills in getting all of this set up is everywhere in your home and it is so wonderful that our grandchildren are helped so much by it all!!

Was a great podcast listening to the fall and rise of Corey on his journey to better mental and
physical health. Definitely some wow moments in the second part of the interview. Listened to it twice now. Look forward to hearing some of the previous podcasts.
