**Audio fixed (minute 22) at 8:45pm central** Sometimes we feel that Life is assisting us, leading us towards our highest good. In those times we feel connected to the Universe, others and to our intuition. Then there are those times when life feels hollow, one demensional and it's hard to see the purpose in our lives. In this conversation, Mary and Lydia talk about what they have done during the hollow times in their own lives and the tools and signs they used to point them back in the direction of joy.
