A PPRAISAL to know if you are stuck and need a new direction.
A TTITUDE of learning mode versus judging mode.
A WARENESS OF YOUR INNATE ABILITY to heal using meditation to alter your gene expression and the gene expression of your future generations.
If you have a medical issue, I know firsthand that the most important factors at the time of diagnosis are mindset, habits, expectations, and methods to implement science-based, whole-person strategies.
