Trusting You is Trusting Me When I say I trust you, first what I am saying is I trust myself. Trust doesn't begin with another. Trust begins inside of who I am for me. Many personal experiences can create an inner story which negates the ability to trust. Abuse, fear, pain, anger [...]

A Christmas gift offered with a reverence and a respect that I had already learned from both of them.

My heart feels so open and so ready to dive deeply and fully and completely and I?m not sure if I know how.
