Your Body Keeps the Score

In my last post I wrote about my discovery of being an empath.

How is it that the underlying, toxic belief of our unworthiness is so pervasive? It’s like a virus in our software that the powers-that-create have not found the right anti-bugging program for! It invades our interactions, our relationships, our material wealth and our ability to be who we are, show up and create a truly
