Some of what our listeners have said:

I believe that working with the chakras helps with ALL aspects of life - including business! I love your podcast and have enjoyed all of the episodes about the chakras - both for personal growth and business! To anyone that has not yet listened to this podcast, I HIGHLY recommend it! Great information with practical methods for applying that knowledge to making transformational lifestyle choices. 2 thumbs up!

It’s so funny how one “simple” word can have such a profound impact!

I just finished listening to episode 55. And, while I (of course) enjoyed the entire episode, I have to say that I LOVE the way you use “curiosity”! It’s definitely a challenge at times to remain unattached to outcomes and remain the observer. I feel like “curiosity” is the missing link to that equation! By approaching the situation through the perspective of the observer WITH CURIOSITY...that’s what makes it exciting to try new things without getting caught in the web of attachment!! Thank you for sharing that! (Where’s the exploding head emoji when you need it?)
