Hi D,

As I am listening to you talk about control, I to try to control things in my life but I realize I am delusional if I think I have any control. I am currently reading The untethered Soul by Michael Singer and it is a good read to relize and release all the blocked energy when we don’t, just let life happen.

Thanks for all you do🙏🏻
