Quotes to Remember:

“We come here with these brains, these minds, but no one teaches us how to use them. And they’re so powerful, continually creating our existence.” – Barbara


“Everyone says this loosely: We are spiritual beings in human form… But did you really think about that?… I love that you brought that up.” – Michelle


“If we get into unconscious negative habits of thinking, we are unconsciously creating negative outcomes.” – Barbara


“We need to be looking at what the heck we’re thinking. That seems to be the root of everything. That’s the taproot to everything else.” – Michelle


“Every question [in my life review] was about my thoughts. What does that tell you about the potency of our thoughts?” – Barbara


“Who is God? What is God? I was born and raised Catholic, but it never resonated as deeply as what I felt my whole life already. I felt this deep connection with God, source, universe, whatever you want to call it.” – Michelle


“Once you clean your thoughts and you’ve cleaned your emotions and you don’t have to wait till it’s all gone, but once that process is up, you’re being unblocked there to start creating from a conscious level.” – Barbara
