Ep 5: Give Yourself Permission to Free Fall


Have you ever had one of those moments when you feel like you are on top of the world, confident and connected to your purpose, yet at the same time, you feel like you are tumbling out of an airplane towards the earth in a free fall? Today, I’m talking about what could happen if you gave yourself permission to free fall … to feel the intensity of being so crystal clear and committed that your heart is on fire while also being vulnerable to the unknowing of it all.

Because perhaps it is in those moments of free fall that we actually learn to fly.
