Reading Time: 3 minutes The truth is we rarely know the whole story, and we won’t ever know it if we can’t shut-up and listen – without judging.

How to Find Treasure in the Dark

Reading Time: 5 minutes Your deepest wound is directly connected to your life purpose.

Having your heart broken feels terrible, and your feelings are a miracle.

In fact, the woundedness you feel in any given situation can be a big key to your purpose in that moment.

Your purpose is much more about “how” you are “being” than “what” you are “doing”.

When you are being the person you were born to be, the power of that is evident in everything you are doing.
