In these bodies, we have a finite amount of time for living. Certainly our souls may be infinite – something about us surpasses time – but our bodies, they die. It is irrefutable. Therefore, in what way can one be sure one is living fully every moment of every day? And, what is the reason … More Engage!
As an energy healer for seven years now, I’ve consistently wondered what, exactly, helps us heal? What, exactly, causes the miraculous, spontaneous recoveries? What, exactly, speeds the process of healing?
