These days when I even hear the word believe I hear my beloved Elder Grandmother Pa’Ris’Ha saying, “I don’t want to know what you believe, I want to know what you know.” These days I can honestly say I know there is no separation between Mind & Body.
Research has documented that the relationship between our thoughts attitudes and therefore our outlook on life has a profound effect on our health. Many times we must take inventory of what is in our closets and begin to clean out and discard what no longer serves us.
Recently I had made a conscious commitment to be in alignment with the Source of all life.
