Your Genius is Calling:
The Courage to Be Who
You Really Are
It takes conscious courage to listen for what whispers to the soul, especially within a culture that tends to denigrate the impulses of the deeper self-intuition, feeling, sensing, instinct, imagination and dreams. It is a great loss to let these calls fall away, or worse yet, deny them entirely. Clear a space to bring your original blessings to bear, awaken to what initiates you toward life’s deeper purpose and your own true nature. Step onto your genuine (genius) path and then live to give it away.
