Coming Home | Nurturing Your Now, Ep.37

 

I’m speaking straight from the heart in this week’s podcast episode.  I share with you a message that I needed to hear, and that I feel moved to share with you. In life we receive messages from different sources and, when we stop to listen, we can tune in and make meaning to help guide our path.  I begin by sharing a dream and the meaning that I made from my dream. When we feel lost, uncertain, or are on the brink of exciting and new opportunities - we can become overwhelmed and distracted.  I invite you to tune into your own messages, to explore the power and significance of coming home and nurturing your now.
