Uncover Your Magic


Turning Our Ego Into A Servant of Our Higher Self with Donna Bond

Ep. 72

The connection between our higher self and us is way more substantial than what we think it is. It is usually hard to see because it is covered up with the programming we receive since we are kids; it is hidden behind society's idea of what human life should look, feel, and taste like. 

Joining me today is Donna Bond, a fabulous woman I've met thanks to my dear friend, Elly Molina. Donna is an Igniter of Light, Catalyst for Personal Transformation, Spiritual Life and Business Coach, and Author of Original Wisdom: Harness the Power of the Authentic You. Before dedicating her life to empower people through a process of personal evolution, she had an extensive and successful career in marketing, being the recipient of the Western Regional Marketing Award three years in a row and Director of Marketing at Ritz-Carlton.

In this episode, Donna and I fall into a rabbit hole of self-discovery, self-love, and connection with our higher self. She shared beautiful stories of her constant communication with the universe, the story of how she met the love of her life, and the time she made a vow of never again violating her intuition after going for a second opinion regarding a breast cancer diagnosis. 

Tune in to Episode 72 of Uncover Your Magic and know this unique and empowered woman and her incredible journey of self-discovery and connection with the universe.
