Let’s Connect with Your Inner Champion
Put your hand on your heart, get quiet, get grounded. Imagine that your heart is breathing in love and exhaling gratitude.
As you linger in that love and gratitude, listen for that part of you that always believes in you, supports you, encourages you, knows your heart.
It may show up as a slight smile on your face, a subtle nod, a warm feeling, or a kind voice. Allow this experience to become your primary focus. This is your Inner Champion.
