1/24/2024
Original Air Date: April 7, 2021 Your life is always speaking to you in whispers, guiding you to your next right step. In many situations, the whisper is also the first warning.

A small voice that tells you, “This is no longer your place of belonging.” It’s the pit in your stomach, or the pause before you speak. It’s the shiver, the goosebumps that raise the hairs on the back of your neck. Whatever form the whisper takes, it’s not a coincidence. Your life is trying to tell you something. Heeding these signs can open the doors to your personal evolution, pushing you toward your life’s purpose. Ignoring them or sleepwalking through your life, is an invitation to chaos.
