Taking Control of Your Healing Pt 1
On this episode, we were sooo thrilled to have a conversation with our long time friend Alicia that we didn’t think about any potential audio issues! On the plus side, you get to hear her giggles twice! The content was so great that re-recording would have taken away from the authenticity of our discussion. Our topic of taking control of your own healing was impactful that we needed 2 segments! We hope that you can listen and enjoy our very jovial friend as she shares her very astounding journey of getting to the other side of being healed and tune in next week for part 2! Thank you for your patience with the echos! Links to the Foundations mentioned:
