What People Are Saying

My life has just been taken on a journey. For me, it was like surrendering and trusting without knowing where it was taking me. And, my mind used to wan to know “what does that mean? Where is that going to take me? What is that going to look like? Why am I being guided to this school? “ I just had to keep reminding myself “Don’t even try to figure it out, just trust, regardless of the outcome. And, it has been this amazing dance. I’m having a life now of doing things that I never possibly could have designed if I'd tried to control it. I am just so grateful and thankful, and, in fact, this program, when it came out, and Dr. See Love told me about it instantly felt in alignment. Looking at the information, my mind got involved thinking “Well, I am not looking to creating a business from this,” but in that moment, in that dance, I knew “it doesn’t matter. I know it is in alignment with me. I know for some reason I am meant to be here and who knows why is it so? Just trust.” And, I did it and I had an amazing time at the program and I am just so grateful and thankful for both of you.”
