What students are saying:

This is my second course with Joseph and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I feel like he explains things simply and efficiently. The sample meditations after each lesson are gold. Tracey Lubben

… the meditations are next-level awesome. Courtney Seard

This course was delivered in a simple to follow fashion. I especially enjoyed the meditations and feel as though I really connected with and was able to truly feel a presence and full-body energy vibrations from each of them. This is a huge plus for me! So many courses and meditations out there that you end up not really connecting with and you leave feeling empty or dissatisfied with. This was not the case with this course. If you are in the early stages of a spiritual journey that you give this a try. You need to be connected with yourself and in the right frame of mind and this course walks you through each stage clearly and with easy to follow exercises. So worth it! Kevin Dickens

Drumheller asks me to go deep right off. He is gentle in his delivery, providing a safe space for me to resolve stuff I thought I had taken care of. I am looking forward to the rest of the course. Susy Goins

Excellent clarification and just amazing. Wow!! Mollie Shannon Rama

This course contains an assortment of lectures, contemplation and meditations to help you discover, and he'll deep subconscious influences that may be contributing to your asthma. As you prepare to dive into the course. I'd like to make a few recommendations first, if it's possible, find someone else or a group of people to take the course with support is a huge component in healing, so try not to go it alone. Also, don't hesitate to reach out to other students on this platform. They may be able to ride answers, insights and encouragement that air just beyond your reach. Remember, they're interested in the same thing you are, namely overcoming asthma. So in the course we'll start off with a short contemplation. I encourage you to do it many times. The contemplation is not designed for you to think and rationally figure out solutions to your problems. Instead, it contains questions thrown out to the universe in a state of relaxation. When your mind is calm, wisdom will provide the answers and insights you may have not considered before. The contemplation will then prepare you for the following deeper meditations. The meditations are designed to create the emotional and energetic framework to align your inner world to help you alleviate or even heal your asthma. So go deep and do them regularly also. And also don't forget there's a verification sheet attached to the beginning of this course . Use a verification sheet after you've done the meditation to contemplation for a few days and will be a checklist to see if the meditations you're doing are actually working. So thanks once again for your interest in this course. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to shoot them my way. I love hearing from my students, so that's the black and may you breathe freely and deeply I'll see in class. 3. The Verification Sheet: hello and welcome to the lecture on the verification sheet. The work we're doing in this course can have a very powerful and positive effect on your subconscious mind. There's a cause and effect component to it. If your intention is to heal or create something and then you put some effort into it, chances are results will occur. The same is true with meditation exercises. Furthermore, as you work along with the contemplations and meditations, you may notice that certain aspects of your life improved over and above what we actually worked on. These are referred to a side benefits, and they're very common in this type of work. For example, as you work along on specific areas, you may also notice an increase in your creativity. What boosting your health, perhaps, or a windfall in your finances or possibly improvement in your relationships. So in order to increase your overall level of awareness, I've created the verification sheet. It's attached as a resource file. Download it and pull it out once a week while you're using the meditations and see if you can check out any of the boxes if you can. It's a clear indication that what we're doing is actually working. So have some fun with checking your progress and please enjoy using the verification sheet . 4. How to Use the Contemplation: Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled How to Use the Contemplation. The exercise following this lecture is a contemplation to help you open the doors to meditate of healing. Hopefully, the contemplation will help you reflect and perhaps shift your perception on your area of interest. However, the contemplation differs slightly from the meditations, so allow me to explain. First off, the contemplation can be done with your eyes open or your eyes closed, whichever is most comfortable for you. Then the contemplation will lead you through a series of questions to help gain deeper insights into your situation. Please keep in mind that the questions are not designed for you to think and rationally figure out solutions to your problems. Instead, there are enquiries thrown out to the universe in the state of relaxation. When your mind is calm, wisdom will provide answers and insights you may not have considered before. You may have insights of clarity or intuitive perceptions known as ah ha moments. Or perhaps you will trigger healing sensations inside your body. No matter what happens out, your job will be to relax, to pay attention and to allow the process to unfold. If you do experience moments of insight, awareness or healing. It's a clear indication that the contemplation is a technique that works for you. If that's the case, keep using it regularly. Once you've mastered the contemplations, you'll be primed and ready for the deeper meditations that follow. In this course, it's OK, that's it for this lecture on contemplation. Now let's go to the contemplation exercise and open ourselves up to some deeper wisdom. I'll see you there. 5. Contemplation for Asthma: Let's start by slowing down the mind as we prepare to relax, take a deep breath in and exhale slowly. Do this a few times to get centered. - Take just a moment to reflect. Is your asthma the result of environmental influences on infection and overly sensitive immune system or smoke inhalation? Or is it triggered by something deeper, like stress or anxiety? - What would it be like if you could relax deeply whenever you chose to With that, lower your overall level of stress? How would that influence your asthma? - Is it possible your asthma is triggered by something even deeper than stress, like some kind of unresolved trauma from the past? If you could feel those suppressed feelings, where would you feel them? What would you call them in a word or two? - Is it possible that your asthma is connected to some unresolved situation in a past life? I am is. So what would it be like to imagine having that situation resolved? No. Yeah, What would it be like to live a life free from asthma? What bright and new possibilities would your future hold 6. The Different Types of Stress: hello and welcome to the lecture on the different types of stress. Because asthma is a condition that could be triggered by stress. I thought it would be a great idea to spend some time discussing the different types of stress in order to increase your awareness. Remember, awareness is about 90% of the healing process. Once you become aware of something, all you have to do at that point is, take the appropriate action to heal it. So let's apply that principle to stress now. For the purposes of this course, I boiled stress into three basic categories. The 1st 1 is unavoidable. Stress unavoidable. Stress is the product of life circumstances. The unexpected occurs. Traffic grinds to a halt. We raise our kids. Deadlines get moved up, we relocate. Workloads increase, family number dies. Life happens, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. And, of course, technology speeds it all up. There's not much we can do about this type of stress, our only control. It's how we learn how to deal with it. So in this course I provided a contemplation and a deep relaxation meditation called progressive relax ation to be used for life's unavoidable stresses and to help prevent the onset of an asthmatic episode. The second type of stress is called avoidable stress. Avoidable stress is the type of stress that can be dispatched with a little internal awareness, he stresses are caused by suppressed emotion from the past or from monkey mind chatter. They tend to cause repeating patterns of the same stress over and over again. So in order to help permanently dispatch this type of stress, I've included to deeper meditations. The 1st 1 is called Age Regression, and the 2nd 1 is called Past Life Regression. These two meditations will take you deep into the subconscious mind to heal and release suppressed emotion from the past. That may be contributing to your asthmatic condition. The third type of stress is caused by not living the life you were born to live. One of the deepest and more subtle causes of stress is caused by not living the life you were born toe live. All of us are here to be and to do something specific. However, due to the conditioning from our family society, religions in the media, many of us getting directed away from the annoying voice that lives within us, the result of living someone else's version of who we are meant to be can leave us quite empty on the inside. So as you become more and more committed to your meditation practice, you will start to lead a more peaceful and less stressful life. As you engage in your healing clarity of your life, direction will start to emerge lighting of the path of the life you were born to live. At that point, all you have to do is go out and live it. So that's it for on a lecture on the different types of stresses. So let's move on to the next lecture and I'll see you there. 7. The Importance of Deep Relaxation: hello and welcome to the lecture on the importance of deep relaxation. Deep relaxation is a crucial element to healing When using meditation techniques. When you're deeply relaxed, the subconscious mind will open up, exposing suppressed emotions from the past. Once those emotions are exposed, they could be safely and effortlessly released using numerous healing techniques. If you have the notion that your current challenges are caused or influenced by past trauma and you think meditation, maybe the tool to assist you in healing, then it's absolutely imperative to learn how to master the initial step, which is deep relaxation. The first thing to understand is that going into a deeply relaxed state is a learned skill that's very important to understand. So let me say it again. Deep relaxation is a learned skill, so like anything else that's worth learning, it takes practice. It takes commitment, and it takes discipline. Now what? That said, Let me remind you that the discipline of learning how to relax deeply is a very pleasant discipline. It feels great. So setting time aside to do it is something you can look forward to each day. Now let's ask a few important questions about deep relaxation and meditation. The 1st 1 is How often should I practice deep relaxation? Well, if you're just starting out, I highly recommend doing it daily. For most people, the most convenient times are the first thing in the morning are just going or just before going to bed in the evening. So, for instance, I meditate every evening for about 15 minutes or so just before going to bed. Also, if you're just starting out, I suggest using some type of guided meditation, audio or video, such as the meditations in this course. It's much easier when someone guide you through the process. Plus, the results tend to be much more noticeable and significant with the health of the guide. So the next question I like to throw out there is what are some of the benefits of deep relaxation? Well, as you progress and develop your own relaxation or meditation practice, relax. Ation will start to become part of your subconscious. That means relax. Ation will become interwoven into the fabric of your being. When that happens, you'll be able to enter a relaxed state at will when you're standing in line at the grocery store driving your car during breaks, at work or even in the middle of a challenging conversation. Another way to say it is learning to relax will reduce your overall level of stress and that they may be extremely beneficial if the challenges you are facing are triggered by stress. Also, as you master the art of deep relaxation, the techniques offered in this course will become much more effective. Furthermore, on a bit of a side note, there are numerous documented health benefits associated with deep relaxation, and there's so many of them that it's really beyond the scope of this brief lecture. So in that following relax ation exercise right after this lecture will be using a technique referred to as progressive relaxation. It's a simple guided meditation, directing you to relax your entire body. So use this meditation regularly and start opening the channels to integrate. Relax ation into the fabric of your being. Okay, that's it for this lecture I'll see at the relax ation exercise 8. Deep Relaxation: Hello and welcome to the lecture on Deep Relax ation. If you are of the notion that your asthma is caused by the influence of stress, past trauma, suppressed emotion or connections to a past life and you think meditation, maybe the tool to assist in your healing then it's absolutely imperative toe learn how to deeply relax, which is also a form of meditation. The first thing to understand is that learning how to deeply relax is a learned skill. Let me say that again. Learning how to deeply relax is a learned skill.

Now, with that said, let me remind you, at the discipline of learning how to relax deeply is a very pleasant discipline. It feels great. So setting time aside to do it is something to look forward to. So you may ask yourself, Well, how often should I practice deep relaxation?

And that may be extremely beneficial if your asthma is triggered by stress, and if you can learn to relax before the onset of an asthmatic attack, you may be able to avert the attack completely. In the following meditation called deep relaxation, we'll be using a technique referred to as progressive. Relax, ation. It's a simple guided meditation, guiding you to relax your entire body, use this meditation regularly and start opening the channels to integrate. Relax ation into the fabric of your being. So that's it for this lecture. I'll see it. The meditation. 9. Meditation - Progressive Relaxation: So before we get started, I'd like you to do is see their sick, their spine erect. Lie in a comfortable position, close your eyes and take a deep breath. So as we begin, what I would like you to do is to imagine if you can, that there is a beam of golden light coming down in through the top of your head. Very relaxing. It's very warm. It's very peaceful and just allow this tremendous light to penetrate your brain so your brain starts to relax and your thoughts start to slow down and your brain becomes very deeply relaxed, very calm, very peaceful, and does your brain becomes more and more relaxed? Allow this wave of relax ation in this peaceful light to begin to move its way down your spine so it moves into the stem of your brain and slowly works its way down all the way down to the tip of your spine and feel this. Relax ation as it extends out from your spine and into your nerves so that this relax ation extends all the way out to the ends of your nervous system so that from the top of your head all the way out to the tip of each nerve. You're very deeply relaxed. You're very calm and you're totally at peace. No, bring the awareness of this. Relax ation back to the top of your head and allow it to begin to drift over the outside of your body so you can actually feel it in your scalp and in your hair. And you can feel the relax ation as it gently moves into your temples in your forehead, slowly moving into your ears and your eyes down your nose into your cheekbones, your jaw on all the muscles of your face. And you can feel this. Relax ation as it slowly penetrates into your lips, your teeth, your tongue in your entire mouth so that your entire head is very deeply relaxed, very calm and totally at peace. Feel the relaxation as it continues by moving down into your neck and into your throat, solely working its way down into your shoulders, and you can feel your arms as they begin to become very heavy. Aziz. The relax ation moves down your arms into your biceps, your triceps, your elbows, your forearms and out to your hands to the tip of each finger and each thumb from the top of your head all the way down to the tips of your fingers. You're very deeply relaxed. You're very calm, and you're totally at peace, and it feels so nice to be so deeply relaxed. You now allow this. Relax ation to drift back to your shoulders as you feel it, beginning to move down into your back so the muscles of your back begin to relax and unwind . You could feel the tension of your back, starting to drain away. Your back becomes so peaceful, so relaxed as the relax ation dress all the way from your shoulders all the way down to your lower back, and you couldn't allow this. Relax ation to begin to drift inwards from your back into your torso so you can actually feel your internal organs beginning to relax. The slowdown to function in perfect peace and harmony, you can feel the relax ation moving into your heart. Their heart begins to open and beat in perfect peace as the relax ation drifts out into your lungs into the center of your breath so you breathe without effort with every breath you take. You become more and more deeply relaxed, and you can feel the relax ation continuing by moving into all of your other internal organs your intestines, your stomach, your liver so that everything's functioning perfectly and peacefully. As the relax ation moves down, your waist slowly begins to move down into your lower body. You can feel your legs has it become increasingly heavy, and as your legs become heavier and heavier and more and more deeply relaxed, you could feel this peaceful relaxation drifting into your thighs down into your knees. Your shins and your cab's currently down at your feet, not to the tip each toe from the top of your head, all the way down to the tips of your toes. You're very deeply relaxed. You're very cold and you're totally at peace. And what I would like you to do now is to simply touch your fingers, your pointer finger to the tip of each thumb on each hand. Is your feeling very deeply relaxed. And whenever you'd like to go into a relaxed state, all is. You need to do just touch your pointer finger to the tip of your thumb. Try once index finger to the tip of your thumb that locks the relax ation in place. Feel free to use at any time when you need to go into a deeply relaxed state and just allow this relaxation to sink deeply into your subconscious. It becomes interwoven into the fabric of your being. So enjoy the state of relaxation for as long as you like. There's absolutely no hurry when you feel like you're done. If you like, you've had enough. You can slowly open your eyes intently, drift back in to the conscious world you no. 10. Anxiety and The Nature of Emotion: Hello and welcome to the lecture on anxiety and the nature of emotion. Anyone who's experiencing genuine anxiety knows what a difficulty motion is, And if it triggers a condition like asthma, it's even worse. However, almost all those same people who have experienced anxiety have no idea that anxieties a creature from the past living in their subconscious mind. So let's start by asking the question. What is anxiety? Well, anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. And as far as the subconscious mind is concerned, the fear of the imminent event is triggered by a memory from the past, which may trigger an asthma attack. However, to grasp the concept more fully, it's important to understand the nature of emotion. There are four main points to understand. First, we must recognize emotions are born to be experienced. Human beings are designed for growth and experience of life to the fullest that includes all of our emotions. Pain, jealousy, anger, enthusiasm, Joey contentment, etcetera are all part of the human experience. Look at a small child who drops its ice cream cone on the sidewalk, a few moments of intense agony are guaranteed, however, in a few minutes after the emotion has been experienced that tears will dry and the child is back to experiencing life. In the moment when emotions are experienced fully, they dissipate. The problem arises when we avoid experiencing unpleasant emotions. We essentially put them in the closet to re emerge at a later date, And they do, sometimes with bigger. How many of us know someone would have gone from one relationship to another experiencing the same problems? How about the person who avoids conflict with authority to the point of becoming seriously ill? Or how about someone who has an asthma attack after an argument with their parents? They're all avoiding unpleasant feelings. We've all done it. In fact, it's a natural response. Our second point to understand in regard to trigger emotions is unexperienced. Trigger emotions get suppressed into the subconscious mind without conscious knowledge or intention on our part. That means we don't know we're doing it. When that happens, they get stuck inside of us. In layman's terms, it's commonly referred to as stuffing your emotions. Our third point to know it is suppressed. Trigger emotions can create repeating patterns of pain. When emotions from the past get trapped inside of the subconscious mind, the continued to recreate uncomfortable circumstances so the trigger emotions can eventually be experienced. Emotions want to live out their life cycle, however, if we keep stuffing them down. Repeating patterns can last a lifetime in regard to trigger emotions like anxiety and asthma. This dynamic can be very easy to see an asthma attack make it set off each time a difficulty motion comes up from the past. Our fourth and final point to notice is trigger. Emotions are your creation, even though they may have been created long ago and difficult or even abusive interactions with someone else. The emotions living inside of you are now yours and yours alone. It may seem unfair, but that's how it works for everyone. Therefore, trigger emotions are never about someone else. You can't blame somebody else for your problems. They're your creation and experience on Lee. Other people who trigger your unresolved emotions are only props in your one person drum. So let's briefly recap this lecture. Number one Trigger emotions like anxiety can underlie an asthma attack. Number two trigger emotions get trapped inside of US number three trigger emotion cause repeating patterns of pain and number four trigger emotions are yours to deal with. So that's it for this lecture on trigger emotions and anxiety. Now let's go to the next lecture and learn how to heal them and let them go permanently. I'll see you there. 11. Techniques for Healing Anxiety & Emotional Triggers: Hello and welcome to the lecture on techniques for healing. Anxiety and emotional traders in this part of the course will be using three specific techniques to heal and release anxiety and trigger emotions. They are flower technique, age regression and past life regression. There are numerous other techniques beyond the scope of this course that you may find helpful. You can find those in some of the other courses I teach on this platform, or feel free to contact me, and I'll steer you in the right direction for more information. So allow me to introduce the meditations will be using in this course. The 1st 1 is a flower technique. I have used the flower technique countless times in my one on one sessions. It's not uncommon for my clients to have noticeable and immediate shifts afterward. Here's how it works. While you're in a deeply relaxed state and focusing on your emotional trigger like anxiety , you'll imagine a beautiful flower hovering above you. You allow it to be big and powerful so you can actually feel its presence in front of you. Then you'll recognize that the flower has enormous healing powers and actually pulls emotional triggers out of your body. At this point, you don't have to do anything. Let the flower do all the work by pulling the emotion out of your body. They keep your relaxed focus on the process until it's finished. The second technique will be using is called age regression, but it's not always necessary. But there are times when finding the root cause to a problem can produce enormous therapeutic benefit. Age regression is a detective's approach to healing emotional triggers. It requires a bit of digging around. It could be extremely effective tool. So here's how it works. We'll start by relaxing deeply, and when you've identified your emotional trigger, you'll imagine yourself going back in time to the first time you experienced it. If nothing comes up, then just pretend and then when you get there last. The question. Is this a new feeling or a familiar feeling? I felt before just trust your answer. If the answer is, I felt it before will continue to go back in time, we'll repeat the process until the answer is This feeling is new. You may end up somewhere you never expected, like in your crib or your mother's womb. or some place that makes no sense. Don't worry about the details, but just trust the process. And once we've identified the initial event well, simply release the the emotion and allow it to dissolve into the past. Then we'll continue to relax and observe the emotion until it's gone. The third technique will be using is called Past Life Regression. In my private sessions, I've had clients have enormous breakthroughs with past life regressions when other techniques don't really work past. My progression is similar to age regression, however, instead of drifting back in time to somewhere in this life to find the root clock cause you'll be drifting back using your imagination into a past life. Now it's important to understand that it doesn't really matter if the past life do you experience in this session Israel or not. If it is, that's great. However, if it's only your imagination, then that's fine, too, because a past life regression allows you to step completely outside the context and the mental framework of this present day life, and you can gain an entirely new perspective on your approach to healing and insights into your suffering. It's a way to detach in orderto let go. Okay, so that's it for healing techniques will be using in this part of the course. So let's go into the meditations now then I'll see you there. 12. Meditation - The Flower: hello and welcome to the meditation called the Flower. What I would like you to do before we begin. Let's just take a moment. And I want you to think of a time when you recently or maybe not so recently had an asthma episode or an asthma attack. And just imagine that you're there right now, right before it happened. And I want you to pay very close attention to the emotion that you're feeling that brought it up. So go ahead, focus on that emotion for just a moment and pay very close attention to where you feel it in your body and we'll come back to it later during the meditation. So before we get started, I'd like you to do is see their sick, their spine erect. Lie in a comfortable position, close your eyes and take a deep breath. So as we begin, what I would like you to do is to imagine if you can that there is a beam of golden light coming down in through the top of your head, very relaxing. It's very warm. It's very peaceful and just allow this tremendous light to penetrate your brain so your brain starts to relax and your thoughts start to slow down and your brain becomes very deeply relaxed, very calm, very peaceful. And does your brain becomes more and more relaxed? Allow this wave of relax ation in this peaceful light to begin to move its way down your spine So it moves into the stem of your brain and slowly works its way down all the way down to the tip of your spine and feel this. Relax ation as it extends out from your spine and into your nerves so that this relax ation extends all the way out to the ends of your nervous system from the top of your head, all the way out to the tip of each nerve. You're very deeply relaxed. You're very calm, and you're totally at peace. No, bring the awareness of this.

Now that we've created a strong foundation in your inner world, we'll use those attributes to set the tone for the future you want to create. The technique will be using is called future visualization. It's a meditation technique that has been used for centuries and successfully applied to all walks of life. Meditation is based on the concept of what lives inside of you will be reflected back to you in your day to day life as within, so without. In fact, everyone does this every day. However most was to do it without intention or awareness. In other words, we don't know we're doing it. Future visualization works by going into a deep, meditative state and then with your eyes closed, seeing and or feeling the future you want to create. This puts the subconscious mind and the universe in gear to bring your vision to you. In this scenario, you'll be visualizing a life free from asthma and experiencing it as if it already exists. Here's how it works. First, you'll enter a deep state of relaxation or a deep, meditative state. Then you'll recall, feel or see a life free from asthma as if it already exists. Then you imagine yourself going into that visualized future and experiencing how your future has changed. When the meditation is over, it will go about your business as usual, while your subconscious mind and the universe do their part to assist you in the process. You may have magical coincidences that help you or the right people might pop into your life just the right time. In fact, anything is possible. All you have to do is pay attention. So what?

I remember as a child in the summer my family would stay in a log cabin along a river. I would spend hours and hours on the beach, wading in the water and skipping stone. It was the most relaxing time of my life. The river moved in strength and in silence, deeply at peace and completely at ease. Just upstream, two smaller rivers flowed together to create the larger river. Two separate rivers. Whoa! To become one, and the water blended and merge in this world and spun around as it gently float along. It was alive and it was at peace, magical and relaxed as I watched on completely tranquil and at rest as everything seemed right in my world What I would like you to do now is to imagine yourself above some beautiful place. A healing place, a sanctuary place. As I count backwards from five. Using the words down and deeper, I'd like you to drift down to this place and into a very deep and peaceful state of calm and peaceful relaxation. Number five feel yourself going down, down drifting deeper and deeper. Four drifting down, down drifting deeper and deeper. Three drifting down, on down. Deeper, deeper two drifting down, down deeper and deeper. And one drifting down, down, down Deeper, deeper and deeper. If you are now in your sanctuary place, I just ask that you imagine yourself being there as if you were actually there. And with every detail that you notice, I'd like it to take you into a deeper and deeper place of calm and peaceful. Relax, ation. So you become calm, peaceful and deeply relaxed, calm, peaceful and deeply relaxed. Call peace. Relax. Call peaceful. Relax. So as you continue to relax more and more deeply, I'd like you to take another deep breath. And I'd like you to use your imagination of what it would be like. Have a life you truly desire. Okay, close attention to what it would feel like. Notice your health. No relationships your work career and finances your spirituality seal and imagine all of those components are parts of those components to be exactly. Are you desire? And I want you to feel that vibrating in your body. And then I want you to know without any doubt that this is how it is absolute confidence and the feel. But that confidence feels like absolute certainty that this is how your life is. And then I want you to experience it as if it's happening right now that this is your truth , when you feel like all those components are in place, you know what? Beyond a shadow of a doubt, you feel as if it's happening. Now I want you to imagine going into your future, taking this in to your near future and even your distant future. And I want you to go there now. And I want you to pay very close attention, toe how your future has changed. And then I want you to be in that future as if it exists right now living the life your desire filled with abundance, perhaps good luck and good fortune. Health, great relationships, connection to spirit, whatever it is for you. Imagine that future confident this of its existence without a shadow of doubt. And if it's happening right now, as if it's happening right now, go ahead and take a few moments and sink into that experience and allow it to integrate into your being. So go ahead and take a deep breath se deeply into your experience to know. But this is integrated into your being and is now waiting for you to live it out. Allow that to anchor deeply into your subconscious. So when you are ready when you feel like you've had enough, there's absolutely no hurry.

Everyone and everyone is here to be something specific. You know, maybe people have all sorts of things we're gonna do in their life. But people are born with certain personality types. They're born from certain cultures. They're here to do something that uniquely them and meditation could help get them there on that track.
