Episode56- Christine Gold 24k Healing
I Want 2 Know about Psychics, Mediums and Spiritual healing. After asking the great and mighty internet, I got a message from Christine Gold, 24K Healing. I was very skeptical about what and who Mediums were as people. I had the perception that Psychics were scammers that only wanted to take money from people that are hurting or lost. I did not get that feeling with Christine. I believe she is a very caring and intuitive person that wants to help people thought difficult times. She describes how she honed her skills with her mentor. We talked about how everyone has the ability to be more intuitive if they had the desire and practiced. She did not come across as mystical or all knowing. She came across as a person that is trying to better the world the way she knows how. We also discussed social standards for men and women, ancestry, ego and a few other topics. I definitely want to know more about her as she grows in her craft. I look forward to the next time I get to sit down with her.  www.instagram.com/24khealing/?hl=en www.facebook.com/24KHealing/ www.youtube.com/channel/UCE_GD8lIdME1M8z7RHVlcvw

Due to technical difficulties I am not uploading the podcast I recorded last week. So I had to do this one my self.
