Spirits of Wealth

The Five Spirits of Wealth Years ago, I was directed to find a book by Edwene Gaines called The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity, and I found it most inspiring  Many people on a spiritual path are very conflicted about financial prosperity — material wealth — so in effect we are putting in our orders…

BRAVING

BRAVING:  Trust in Relationships Many of my clients are learning how to thrive after narcissistic abuse, or pulling out of relationships with narcissists.  [Narcissism is a disorder in which the person has an inflated sense of self-importance.  Narcissistic personality disorder is found more commonly in men.  The cause is unknown but probably involves a combination…
