I'm finished with all this in my bookbag cuz I'm from the streets here. Yeah, dude, what's going on? It's your boy ambition and we're back at it with another episode of The my FB podcast and today with me, we have a man I want to say spiritual Alchemist extraordinary I was going through your background and your website and all of the amazing offerings that you have from aromatherapy to, you know, Alchemy, this idea of the elevation of consciousness. So today with us, we have a Dora, thank you for joining us, Dora, how you doing today?
Awesome. And I love your title, your name ambition that is so beautiful, like what an inspiration the moment that you meet someone and engage in conversation with them.
Yeah, no, thank you. Um, you know, I wrote a spoken word piece about it when I was like 19. And there was a bunch of quotes that I had pulled out because, you know, one of the things that you do with any sort of literature, you want to go back and say, Okay, who said, what about this concept? And Niccolo Machiavelli said ambition is that which without nothing starts, right. So I was really leaning into the fact that I was really good at starting stuff and not completing it at first. But, you know, yeah, over time, I've learned how to complete and execute with all of those things. So it all worked out. I love your name as well. Thank you. There's actually a song by a by a rapper his name's Jidenna. He he has a song name adore.
Really? I have never heard it. I've had to write that down. What is his name?
Jidenna. So let's, yep, I would play right now. But we don't want to get covered.
Unknown Speaker 1:57
Right away it after?
No, definitely, definitely. I don't mind getting off topic. It's a copyright infringement.
All right. That is important.
So tell us a little bit about your business. What do you what is it exactly that you do for your clients? And what are the what's the feeling that you leave them with? Right, I talked to a lot of business owners, we can often talk about the product, but how do you make your clients feel after those products are introduced or those services are introduced?
I love that. I love that question. Because it's so connected to my mission and vision, right, which is all about ways that I can support humanity in the remembrance of their sovereignty, their divinity, and empower to express their highest nature of being right in the most authentic of ways. But our feeling experience is what cultivates and creates a bridge to allow for our highest expression to surface. So when someone comes to me, and then they can, they can come in from a few different perspectives. Because our platform is really unique in that it is expansive, we have both products, we have services, right where I do one on work with individuals, I teach in a group setting, which I definitely want to talk about from the veteran perspective, because that's such a passion of mine. And then I have my new book that's out and a speaking platform that's connected with and beyond that, as well as my new institute, this whole Institute for Quantum living, which is an educational platform that's launching next year. So at the like the core thread that inter twines, all of those aspects, is the feeling of inspiration is the feeling of empowerment, right? Because when we feel empowered, we make such more informed decisions right about our life. And one thing that I'm working on right now is this concept that's in my book called The survive to thrive. Pyramid, right. And it's kind of it's similar in concept to Maslow's hierarchy. And in that we all start at the lower base of the pyramid to some degree, right, in some aspect of survival and struggle, whether that's from an economic perspective, whether that's from a physical health perspective, and many other forms and facets, but ultimately, what is our design, right? We're all our innate desire is to evolve. And so to come up through that pyramid, ultimately to walk the path of self mastery, and self actualization. So when we can come in and move into feelings of empowerment and release and freedom from the patterns of adversity, or trauma that we've experienced in this world. or through our DNA right through our genetics, right? That allows for us to fully express who we are. So the feeling piece is imperative, right to carving out that higher path of, of living and expressing who we are, I can
definitely see the direction that you're going. And I can see the vision as you talk about it. Because it's definitely something that's needed. No, I say this a lot on the podcast, I tell people the journey that we've been through in our business, which is that we started out wanting to just strictly teach people how to start their own businesses. And we immediately ran into all of these obstacles and brick walls in the term of limiting beliefs, right? Yes, exactly. So. And this is where I've come to understand myself, not just as a business owner, but as a leader, going, Okay, I know that there's these people that need this sort of help, right? I'm not the right person for at the moment, but let me go and get those skills. So then I started studying hypnotherapy and became a hypnotherapist got certified? And we said, Okay, well, let's offer those skills. Right. Um, I'm not gonna lie, I think I went too far hypnotherapy too far, abstract from them for my taste. And I said, You know what, let me course correct and get back to the business stuff. But keep this available for the people that really need it. So now, hypnotherapy is something that we offer privately, but our courses do have some of that knowledge in there, in terms of getting over limiting beliefs. So I definitely, I love the fact that you are combining the two, right? Like there's, there has to be this understanding that whether you want to be successful in business and or successful as a family member, with being the head of a family, no matter what you want to be successful in, there's this lifestyle balance. And if that lifestyle balance doesn't include some essence of the spiritual aspect, um, I think it just kind of leaves so much behind, you're gonna look at repeating the same cycles all over again.
It's so true ambition, I think that even if we're consciously aware of it, or not, that the path of the entrepreneur is truly a spiritual path. And that because, of course, everything that we feel and any, and as you know, this, right, brilliant from the perspective of hypnotherapy, anything that is left unresolved within us continues to create project and magnetize experience. Yes, right. And so with that knowledge, we know that as an entrepreneur, we can only go beyond the glass ceiling that is held within us.
The funny part about what you just said, That's so true, is that you think that you're not gonna have to deal with your attitude problems, or you're not gonna have to deal with the fact that, you know, man, most days I wake up feeling shitty. But as an entrepreneur, your clients are gonna throw that energy right back into your face. times 1000. Yeah, yeah. It's just the nature of the beast. And I know, there's probably some entrepreneurs listening in there trying to figure out what why can't I get the sales? You know, I'm always dealing with all of these fucked up people. If you're dealing with a whole bunch of fucked up people in your business, it's not the people whose fucked up, it's your perspective.
Yeah. Well, and this is where it, we come to a deeper understanding that we are all connected. And that those that we come into contact and communion, when whether it's business or strangers or other relationships, are all holding mirrors for us. Right? I agree with that. And that, I think the old paradigm of business says, well, busy, your business and your personal life are separate. But we know that life isn't based on that Cartesian philosophy, that it's not finite and separate and that everything is connected, and ultimately, everything bleeds through, right. So the new paradigm of business that I'm really envisioning is where we come together in a fundamental vision, of honor of respect of understanding that people have a personal life, as well as a business life of inclusion and diversity from our cultural perspectives, because what does that do that helps us all grow? Right in our understanding of the human perspective? human insight, human wisdom, human challenges, human adversity. And it also unites us in a deeper way. So for example, I have a team, a core team right now of about nine people. And then we have a robust internship program, where we have an additional five to maybe 20 additional team members that come in interns for three months, and all different facets of the business. Now, it could be social media, could be PR, it could be SEO, it could be graphic design, web development, accounting, bizdev, you name it. But when we come together, we come together from the perspective of connection, connecting, right like we start each team meeting out with a moment of gratitude, and unification. And that sets the stage for what I see is a much more organic, inspirational environment that people because of our innate human desire to evolve and succeed, people then just organically bring the best of who they are to the team. And that we honor that sometimes somebody is going to need a day off or like, can voice like, I am just feeling really overwhelmed. I need somebody to help me pick up the slack. And we do that because we we are one organism in that way. Right. And so from that perspective, it becomes a teaching for all levels of the team from the intern to leadership, including myself, where we're all learning and growing together, right, and we're all holding the mirror for each other. And sometimes we really love what we see. And sometimes we say, Okay, well, this didn't work, why not? What do we need to where do we need to pivot? What do we need to configure? And what's coming up, and let's have more care, compassion, and acceptance of ourselves in this process of expansion.
So one of the things I definitely want to highlight is you definitely have a very unique combination. Normally, when we see wellness businesses, that our spiritual base where there's the spiritual concepts, a lot of us can lose our grounding, so to speak. And we don't see very good digital accompaniments. But from everything that you just said, right, if I charged you guys running back a minute, web design, SEO, if you've, I went to go look at your website, and there's all of these different facets that you do, whether it's the products or running retreats, your business seems like you you didn't just take the spiritual leader aspect and sit in that, but you really dive into what does it take to be a modern day leader in a business? And, you know, I'm curious, what was your journey like? To get there? Right? For myself? It's much easier, right? I was in technology, and then went into entrepreneurship, or actually, I was doing both simultaneously. So, you know, my idea of technology is there. And I can talk to so many people who they don't get the technological aspect of their business. So what what did it take to get you where you currently are?
That's a great question. Ambition, thank you, because it took a lot. It took me many, many years and a lot of mistakes, right? That that I always like to say, well, when we fail, it's fail forward and how to become an integrative learning experience to move beyond but ultimately, I think one thing that's unique about my journey is that I started both a healing practice and a product business the same year, same time in 1998. So, you know, a few moons ago for sure. And in those earlier years of both, but specifically in business, I had a slight background in corporate America, but not at a sea level for sure. No degree at that time. And certainly and to this day, no degree in business, but a lot of experience and for sure. I think a lot of my wins came from having to grow from adversity. For example, I you know, had the product business and for many years creating branding different than the adore win quiz platform. And I'll share a little bit more but I went through different names of companies, kind of through similar threads of branding, the core platform the same of combining vibrational frequency or energy and intention in with essential oils for personal empowerment for our enhance our feeling, response and our emotional resilience to specifically stress and PTSD but It took a lot of mistakes along the way. And so even in about 12, almost 13 years ago when I decided, okay, I have this practice, I have this product business, neither one of them are really succeeding. But here I am. Now I'm a single mom, I just had a baby, I'm alone, I can't afford to go back to work and pay for childcare and my rent, what am I going to do? So from that adversity came the fact of, well, I've got all these formulas, I have these ideas, right. As a visionary, I have ideas all of the time. Now it's time to execute and get something happening here, because I don't have a choice. And that's where I sold into my first Whole Foods account with a product line that was based on enhancing our emotional well being and working with the spirituality of the chakra system for empowerment. And, and that brand I built for a number of years to more accounts and more background right like brand concept, brand architecture, visuals. I've been really fortunate to have my creative director with me for 20 years, and all of the brands that I've created since then. But with that, through that adversity, and like really having to hustle, I was able to make some leaps along the way and ultimately rebrand that business, to what today is called a door therapy. And I hired a team and I took on financing, I took on equity partnerships, we built that to having a war an award winning brand, from the packaging to the formulas.
And over 400 accounts in the US and some international play with that brand. And then I left day to day operations sold most of my equity. So I could go out and start this new platform adore when Quist. And I have a couple of other businesses, in addition to that, like crystal Raven, which is a whole other exciting genre, and then to start the book. So I think that, you know, from that perspective, what does it take to be successful, right. And I have to say, like, the moment that I, I saw your name, ambition, what it reminded me of I was when I was 18 years old, still in high school, and upstate New York. And sometimes they would bring us together for these like movies, like it could be something on I don't know, like hygiene or who knows. But this one was about inspiration. Right. And it was a song desire by you too. And as I was watching this, I think it was supposed to, you know, activate something within us to take out into the world after graduation. And that activated this drive and this ambition within me to know that I wasn't really sure what I was going to do, but I knew it was going to it wasn't going to be out of the norm, like I'm going to go to school for this and get a job in this field. Right. And so that ambition, and that drive, and that perseverance that was activated within me has been what has propelled me forward. Even when there were many losses. There were many mistakes in judgment that I made. There are many painful lessons along the way. But, you know, they, they say I say I believe that the path of the entrepreneur is not for the weak of heart. Because you're not going to have an idea, like, I'm going to get here a to b No, you're gonna go in so many all the way around. Yeah, I tell
all of my clients and all of my partners, and anybody that will listen that entrepreneurship and business is the best personal development tool, it will literally force you to that area that you've been avoiding. Right? Oh, totally. If you're looking at like a YouTube channel, and you're saying, I don't want to start my YouTube channel, go ahead and start your entrepreneur business and see if not four years, five years down the line, you're right back to having to go start that YouTube channel. Right. And sometimes what it can be that I noticed stands in a lot of our ways is a, we hear the task, and we immediately start building up how hard it is. Right forgetting that our job as entrepreneurs as business people is intelligent leaders in the world, not just in business in the world, right. And I'm not just talking about people who are leading businesses, but people who are employees in businesses, people who are parents, children. I think every person is a leader, right? Yeah. So as a leader, it's your job to figure out the easy way to do some hard shit. Not just say that it's hard.
Yeah. I hate to like this is the one aspect of our human nature, right? It's like we have this thing to do we make it like all of these things and how awful it's going to be. And then we actually do it. And it's like, wow, why didn't I do that before? Like, this was not that bad. And I made this whole huge, you know, internal drama about it.
Oh, no, I definitely agree. Right? I do the same thing. Anything having to do with actually writing more than three sentences? I'm like, oh, no, I gotta write an essay. Right? And I forget, like, I'm a speaker, why don't I just talk it out? I know, and then transcribe it. Yeah, like, it'll be fine now. And now since I've started doing that, all my copies looking great. My emails get done in 20 minutes instead of three hours, right? All of this stuff just pulls together.
That is such an important, important part, right? Like an important piece of the puzzle. I love that you touched on that. Because as entrepreneurs, we're not going to be excellent in every single facet of the business. Right? I sure I'm not I'm not great at organization. I'm not great at the technical piece at all, the graphic design piece, I have a vision in my mind, but I can't get that into digital form in any form or facet.
How many times have your graphic designers told you that idea is too complicated? It's not going to work? We need to simplify that.
Well, actually never. Because my my creative director who leads the design team is so like, onpoint, we're on the same wavelength. Because after 20 years, like we really know each other well. So instead, what she does is she takes my vision, and she actually makes it better than I anticipated. And that is such a delight, like my book cover, she did this. See if I have it here, this design. And she took a base concept and created like a whole life form around it. Yeah, so I think I'm super fortunate. And that's why, you know, surrounding yourself by brilliant people that are particularly talented in the areas that you're not, and being able to receive their brilliance is such an important part, right, like not having the ego to say, it's only my way, right? Because that comes from a place of limitation.
No, I definitely agree with that. You mentioned earlier that you did some work with the veterans, right? Being myself. I did nine years in the Marine Corps. So when, as I was coming out, just so people know, they're probably thinking like, you guys are talking spiritual stuff. How does that help veterans? As I was getting out of the military, I got real with myself about my mental health, right. And in so doing, you know, I went to go seek our help. The military sent me someplace where it's called Mind Body wellness, right? I think mind body wellness is the name of it. And there was all of these programs with meditation, and mindfulness meditations, and acupuncture and all of these things that were massively helpful to the veterans that I was in a room with. No, I, you know, got to firsthand experience, you know, these healing moments with grown men that most people whether or not you were in uniform, would be intimidated by, right like, talking big, bald, the high car, right, like you don't want no problems, but there's genuine sadness and in his heart because of, you know, the things that he had to do. And, yeah, right. And so, just to touch on that a little bit, because I know we aren't the, we probably aren't the easiest clients you work with. So how do you help veterans? And what advice would you have for any veterans out there listening?
Yes, I have to say that this topic and demographic, from the military perspective is so near and dear to my heart. My dad was a Marine. And as long as he was alive, which was until two years ago, you can never say he was a Marine, because once you are, you always are right. And, and he was my closest ally, and life and friend. And so he served in the Korean War. And, and I could see he shared a lot of the stories of that time. And I also could see how deeply he suffered from PTSD, although he would never call it that. And, and even in his generation, it was never term that there were different of course classifications but I knew what a struggle he had. It affected me deeply to the point where, for over 10 years into my career, I wanted to be able to work with this with veterans with as a as a group in these facets of plant medicine, of mindfulness of meditation of energy healing techniques. And so when I came to North Carolina, I had the privilege and opportunity to work with the veterans healing farm in Hendersonville, North Carolina, and to serve for a time as their co director of the medicinal garden and aroma therapy. And so what we did was, we would have the vets that were come out from the VA, and we would teach them how to make their own medicine, with the plants that we grew in the garden, right, how to make medicine, for sleep, for mood, for energy, for pain. And we even had to boot camps that were about two and a half days each, where we really got to have the immersion experience of going and harvesting the plant matter. And whether it was making a product from an herb that was grown, or from the essential oil aspect, which I taught with great joy. To me, it was such a confirmation of this work that the vet, the veterans were so open, they were so searching for alternatives beyond or as an adjunct to the pharmaceuticals, that that were offered. And so I continue even though I had to step down from that position last year with a book tour and such, I continue to have a vision and passion for some other ways of working in the future. Also, because my my life partner is in the Air Force. He is retiring next year, but he started in the Marine Corps. Yeah, thank you. And he'll be preparing for his next deployment at the end of next month for a significant period of time to the Middle East. And so these are all things that whether you're active or retired in the military, they're still your family that are experiencing things based on your experience based on you know, what your travel and all of these other facets that I think that these, the power plant in vibrational medicine can be such a wonderful support and healing and transformative operation opportunity for our active military and veteran community as well.
No, I, I love what you said about helping them learn how to actually make the medicine. It goes back to what you said earlier about empowerment. And the reason I love that so much is that is like one of the tricks with dealing with veterans, like if we feel like you know, it's somebody doing it for us, we can be resistant on one hand. On the other hand, if we do, you know, get into delegation, because everything within our cultures, snap and you know, more iterative. I remember walking in and it's the first day with my therapist, and I'm like, I'm broken, I need to fix like, we need to do this now. Like, I don't operate like this. I'm not able to get my work done. I don't care about any of this emotional mumbo jumbo, right?
I don't want to feel anything.
Right. I don't want to feel nothing. I'm broken. piece it. Right. Yeah. It's like no, well, yeah, you might be broken, but not in a way that you think it's the other way. So I love the empowering aspect of it.
Yes, the and in fact, the veterans healing farm.org is a wonderful resource for any of your listeners, listeners that are interested and exploring what their mission and vision is. And I think there are still many of the videos, tutorials and information on the herbal and essential oil aspects for learning how to make our own medicine because it's a completely different thing. I can make something and say here, ambition use this way. And this will really empower you and you're like, Okay, that's really great. I'm going to do that. But if you actually make it yourself, and you understand the nature of the raw materials that you're putting in the intention that you can infuse and then enhance the effectiveness of your formula. And it's something that you crafted from with your hands, your heart, your mind. It's a whole different level of experience of efficacy, and therefore empowerment
No, I definitely see where you're going with that. So, you mentioned, um, you know, the speaking portion of your business earlier. What type of events do you normally speak at? And what is it what is, you know, if you could give us like an example title of a speech that we could look forward to researching, gave, um,
I love to speak on essential oils for emotional balance and resilience. And that's something if you're looking at any of the press that's on my site or previous interviews, you'll see that I will pretty much always come back to this because it is a way that we can shift with immediacy, our emotion, and our emotional response. And so I share this with everywhere from schools to I just did a presentation for my alma mater, which is the Barbara Brennan School of healing. It's a premier school, global school that teaches energy medicine, with a focus on psycho dynamics through the human energy field. And so I did a presentation on four essential oils for every healer is aromatic Arsenal
And and how we can not only release emotions that are held through trauma, how we can repattern the brain and the neuro pathways with the power of essential oils, which is something I'm incredibly passionate about, because it's something that everyone can benefit from. And it's practical, and it's accessible. And how we can overall recalibrate and reregulate our nervous system, from past trauma through working with the essential oils and different mindfulness techniques. So I, you know, speak at hospitals and other mental health organizations. And I really have such an openness, like large scale conferences to, but everything from local community to large scale global platforms, because I think it's important to touch upon all of those communities and demographics. And to be able to kind of plant those seeds. Like when we when we're planting a garden, we're not just planting and like one fruit or one vegetable, right, where we want to plant in all of the areas to be able to see the greatest bounty and from my perspective, it's all of the different communities and demographics and organizations that can that are ready to receive change. Because ultimately, we have to be ready to change to take those first steps. But once we are once we have that openness, once we have that receptivity, then there's so much that can be shared. And I think that that, from my perspective, whether it's essential oils, or crystal healing, or vibrational medicine, or nutrition, or meditation, which are all facets of my background, that there's something that everyone can take from that to be able to take action steps and empower their life in a healthier way. Because what works for you is not necessarily going to work for someone else. Right? So like with my new book that's out for all of these aspects of healing, whether it's greater energy, deeper love, better mood, we explore 11 Different alchemical aspects from essential oils to herbs, to meditation, to crystals to nutrition, so that everyone can kind of create their own unique formula for healing and for empowerment.
Beautiful, beautiful dope. Alright, so we're now at the point of the podcast where we'll get off all of the serious stuff. I always trade a story for a story, right? Okay, cool. I think I'm actually gonna name it. So this is the very first segment we're gonna name this segment of the podcast. So this is the first episode where we'll have the name story for story. Right? And I always allow my guests to go first and the question is what is one of the wildest stories you can tell us?
Oh, God that I can tell you. Yes. Oh, what is one of the wildest stories Hmm Well, something that I think is relatively tame for readership for listenership I just came back
Unknown Speaker 34:45
from one team this is we don't want a load. Yeah.
There's so many stories. Let's see. Mmm hmm. Okay, this is a really crazy one.
Yeah, that's the one we want. This is. So this is
probably a little over 20 years ago, but I had just actually, I just came back this weekend from doing some press stuff and teaching in New York City in New Jersey. And in New Jersey, I saw, like my one best friend, we've been friends since sixth grade. And her husband, we've been very close for the 20 plus years. So we have known each other through so many things, right? Think of all of the life experiences you have in 20 years children marriage, divorce, illness, loss, wind success, etc. So one thing that I was reminded when we were together is that we took a trip to a cruise to Bermuda, a little over 20 years ago. And we were in a much more free and wild and crazy time of our lives. And so we went out I think the boat dock somewhere in Bermuda and we went out to this restaurant and had a lot of cocktails and think cosmopolitans or what are they called a martinis? Nice. So we were having martinis. And then two of us went, and not myself, myself and my friend's husband stayed out. And we're hanging out with the crew from the ship. Because they were, you know, they were off work. And so they were having a lot of fun, and they decided to go to this beach. So we followed them to the beach. I mean, it was probably like 11 o'clock at night, it was, we'd all had numerous cocktails, and we decided to go swimming, which at that time is like feeding time for the sharks. No, not really an intelligent thing to do. And we almost decided to swim back around the island to the ship, which luckily, we didn't because certainly we probably would have drowned. But just the fact that going back and talking about this memory last week of like, Yeah, way too many cocktails and going swimming in the sea during feeding time. And almost swimming back to the ship, which would have been certainly death. You know, as to one of the things that we had a brilliantly fun time with, but certainly would not do now. 20 Some years later.
Yeah, I wouldn't have done at any juncture.
Say you're smarter.
Righteous have a healthy fear of sharks. Right? Okay, so I got one for you. I'm actually, today, I'm not going to tell a personal story for me. But this is a story that I picked up through my family. So this is a story about my father. Right. My father, it was, you know, he passed away in 2011. But um, was, you know, kind of a short man was five, three, but very charismatic, very intelligent. Like, he could talk a man. He talks a swordsman into stabbing themselves. Like, that's how many? Yeah, like, that's him, right? I'm remember. And just so people get an idea for you know, who my dad was? We were standing in a line at a BJs. Right. BJs is this department store? And he's behind this lady in scrubs. So he leans in, and this is before, you know, COVID, obviously, so the coughing wasn't that leaves in a little bit nudges there and go. Because I'm not feeling too well. I think I may need a nurse to help me out later on. And the ladies just sitting there like,
Unknown Speaker 38:48
Well, ain't you bold? Right? So that's, that's
my dad, right? At his funeral. Everyone's talking about how he was ladies, man. And oh, wow. Yeah. And I felt so sorry for this lady. She was talking, she stood up. And she was talking about how my father would help walk her son to school every morning, and help her out. But all of the rest of us in the audience was like, Yeah, we know. I mean, we know why we we know. Right? Oh, wow. So that's great. This story is back from when my father was young. And one of the things that was always told to me about my father, as charismatic as he was as much of a lover as he was. He had a very bad temper. Right. And the temper wasn't something that you could realize it wasn't like he was going to yell and scream with you. He was going to talk softer and get much more polite, and much more articulate. And when it blew up, that was you're asked to catch. Oh, my aunt was dating a guy at the time. And I'm not sure whether or not the story was that he hit Her or he was arguing with her. And my father was driving vans or trucks. Right? And the man's house was at the bottom of the hill. So my father was driving his truck. And now the truck is in the middle of this man's living room. Right. Oh, so he drove the truck into the living room. Oh, my goodness, please get there. Everybody's like, what's going on? They go to my father to go get the statement. You know, my
Unknown Speaker 40:30
father says Brickfield. Just like that. Yeah. brakes fail. Great. Wow.
That's an incredible story. That is an incredible story.
Oh, you mentioned Bermuda and I figured I'd give you the story of a Beijing so my family's from Barbados. So Wow. Yeah. So Beijing man drives into man's house.

sure. That No, that's like one of my favorite stories. Like yeah, when when I'm talking to my son now about, you know, being a leader in protecting family. I tell him that story. Oh, write that in. It's taking some of the more traumatic Hey, you guys are bad people and just kind of right, twisting it right. Like he's gonna hear that story from other family members eventually.

I would say that every single moment in your life, every step you've taken, every breath you've taken, has brought you perfectly hearing now. Hmm, certainly, it's been an imperfect journey. Because all of ours is imperfect, in some way, right? We all have adversity, we all have something that we've come into this life within us to transform and heal and grow from. And yet, we also have a tremendous gift, a unique light, a unique gift that we can only bring to the world, for the greater good of all. And that no matter how you feel in this moment, in a way where that imperfection is surfacing, you're not alone. And there is a path out and far beyond what you're experiencing. And even if what you're experiencing right now is magnificence. There is even more to be had and experienced and felt and embodied.
Yeah. That was amazing. Thank you for that. Thank you for an amazing episode. And for those listening. Go be great
