In an effort to clarify how I view the connection between Christianity and manifestation, from my current state of consciousness, and that I didn't share in the last episode, I riff about what it means to be Christian and believe in the power of manifestation.

Your mind and body are one, not separate as we've been led to believe. And the quality of both your breath and posture mirror the way you show up in this world. 

Imagine if a simple shift in your posture could change the way you're perceived or the way you perceive the world around you, or if intentional breathing could bring focus and calm to your life. In this episode, I unpack the profound idea that the body a...

When your Inner Critic stops by and brings along resentment for the ride, everyone around you, including yourself, might want to run for the hills.
