    Being a Soul Led Leader with Angela Rye

    Being a Soul Led Leader with Angela Rye

    Announcing your boundaries can oftentimes be interpreted as “selfish” and you’ll most likely be challenged for having them. In this episode, Devi and Angela Rye revisit the post from the Black Love YOU Retreat that went viral last month. Granted the combination of words, “mutually beneficial” may have a connotation that some people internalize due to whatever personal energy is connected to the term. Devi expounds on how she defines it and the importance of genuinely benefiting from any and all interactions and making a positive exchange a priority. The episode continues with a conversation between the two friends about the balance of being spiritual and being pro-black and how they work together.

You deserve authentic connections where energy is reciprocated. Energy flows where energy goes, honor the direction of your good energy.

Long overdue to review.

I’ve been meaning to review but it has taken me some time. Great content. I love podcasts that are dedicated to doing the work. I just listened to the most recent episode and it hit my soul at a much needed time. Definitely filled my cup and reminded me that it will always be something on this journey. Thank you for this.
