    Deeper Grounding (Breathing Meditation‪)‬

    Deeper Grounding (Breathing Meditation‪)‬

    It is in the stillness that I awaken to heaven on earth. 

    Through the breath, we tap into our souls.

    Through our breath, we tap into the flow of the universe.

    Through our breath, we come back home to ourselves. 

    Keep breathing. Keep releasing. Keep returning.

    50. Awakening Through Ayahuasca, Nutrition & Mindfulness with David Palma 

    Today we got the opportunity to sit with Spiritual Embodiment Mentor and sacred plant medicine guide David Palma. In this conversation we deep dove into:


    The path of Self-mastery for creating our “Heaven on Earth”.

    The importance of cultivating an intentional relationship with food for tapping more deeply into our intuition.

    The story of how David recovered from severe illness and self-destructive habits in his early 20’s to his current state of optimal health and deep mind, body, spirit alignment.

    Becoming conscious of faulty cultural programming so that we can tap into our powerful internal guidance system.

    The main things we need to know if we’re considering engaging with the sacred plant medicine of Ayahuasca

Love it!

Such an amazing podcast 😍

CRF1962 ,

We are guided

I heard this one for a second Time
I am so with you, if we decide to give up changing the universe, which is perfect, and start working in our selves, we will no suffer any more, since, through understanding , we begin to accept and do the best with our own life experience

Real. Raw. Impactful.

These two... where to start? First of all, the professionalism here is excellent. Just excellent. Now, as far as these sisters... their self observation and discipline are inspiring, fresh, and come across as genuine. To hear the experiences of these sisters and their guests feels comforting and inspiring. I experience connection to them and myself while listening. They help me know that everything is going to be okay... deep breath in...
