I honestly believe that we all go through periods of “spiritual awakenings” meaning each of us become more in tune with our higher divine purpose. When it feels like everything is stagnant thats a period when people begin to develop into who they truly want to be. It takes those periods to realize and reevaluate what we need in our lives whether it’s career orientation, relationships, personal goals, or/and changes to our environment. It’s very important to listen to your intuition and do what feels right for you and only you! I usually like to start with this short 10 minute guided meditation every morning.
