SHIRLEE HALL, BE HEALED FOREVER – How Dense are You?

HOW DENSE ARE YOU? I was smiling as I wrote the title. For millions of years we have been evolving and will continue to do so. At the same time, human beings resist change and find it difficult. Then, there is always someone like me who thrives on change. The process was set in motion long ago and we will continue to co-create our own experience. Awareness is a prerequisite to all acceptable changes of theory. In other words, everything begins in the mind of the individual. What we … [Read more...]
