Linda's Corner - S2E25 - "A Drop of Om" with Damla Aktekin
Today we’re going to be talking about energetic healing. I’m so excited to welcome special guest Damla Aktekin. Damla is a healer, coach, writer, and the host of the podcast, “Conversations With Healers.” Visit her website “A Drop of Om” for a free energetic wounds quiz.
One beautiful thing I learned from Damla is her definition of a healer. It includes not only people who learn and share the healing arts, but also "someone who, through their own healing journey, has begun to embody so much light, so much joy, so much life force that just their pure existence in the world is healing for the people around them." We are like a drop of water in a pond which creates ripples that radiate outward. Our actions, words, and very essence affect the people around us.
Linda's Corner - S2E24 - What I learned living off food storage
Food storage is an essential part of being self reliant. I've had to rely on our food storage on three separate occasions in my life. It wasn't what I expected it to be like. I invite you to learn from my experiences (and my mistakes) to help you become better prepared and feel the peace and comfort that comes from being self reliant.
“Remember, when disaster strikes, the time to prepare has passed.” - Steven Cyros.
