Deepening Your Relationship with Yourself with Ana Ruiz

Ep. 91

Episode 91. Deepening Your Relationship with Yourself with Ana Ruiz - In today's episode, Ana and I talk about a very special topic, which is the relationship with ourselves and finding that connection with self on an emotional level. One of the points we touch on is how when you transform your relationship with yourself, you actually end up transforming all relationships with others, which is the beautiful magic of it all. We also chat about looking at parts of ourselves that we need to deepen that connection and about uncovering those wounds and patterns, as well as bringing awareness to all those parts so that we can work on them and heal them.
