Healing by Opening Up: Why Do We Tell Our Stories?

Reading Time: 8 minutes

There is a spiritual law at work when we open up to someone else. Because in that moment, we are taking a risk and performing an act of humility. And becoming humble—as opposed to prideful—is very healing.

Because they form hidden obstacles in our system—tight knots made up of wrong conclusions and the painful feelings associated with them—that today are the root cause of all our daily disharmonies. For they are at the root of our faults.

Holding the Light: Another Perspective

Reading Time: 5 minutes

On the surface, it may seem there are as many perspectives in this world as there are people. But if we dig a little deeper, we’ll find the common denominators.
