S3:E6 – Finding Healing Through Forgiveness

*sometimes we swear.

Nicole’s been going through a very important process of forgiveness over the last two weeks. This has been a hugely uplifting time for her energetically, which culminated in a huge release that she experienced yesterday. Her face has suddenly gone all ninja on her though, so she thinks that she could be purging some of her stuff through the skin on her face. Michelle agrees and points out that with skin being the body’s largest organ, it could be her body’s way of getting rid of some toxins. So it looks like a whole new layer of Nicole is emerging…

The process that Nicole has been going through over the past couple of weeks is an ongoing one of learning forgiveness and healing her wounds. Today, she shares what the process has been like for her, what she’s been working through and how she’s done it, because, as Michelle points out, forgiveness is one of the most important keys to healing and growth that we can ever access. So, listen in while Nicole, with Michelle’s support and encouragement, sparkles that shit out on the show today! Listen to Episode 6
