If you missed yesterday’s interview with Sonia Choquette , it’s not too late to tune in and experience the importance of breath work, learn about the four easy steps to create a Six Sensory Life as you tap into your intuition, and hear about what the universe is asking of you in 2013 as you shift from the external world into the internal world. Then, experience firsthand how you can learn to listen to your heart. And, I must admit I felt a bit vulnerable when asked to participate in one of Sonia’s exercises, but the outcome was worth it. I felt a shift occur in my energy field and calmness filled my spirit. In that moment, I knew I was in my truth and had tapped into my authentic self. Listen, and try Sonia’s exercise out for yourself. I’d love to hear back from you.
