When you become aware of your true self, begin to live authentically, and embrace your unlimited true potential, you have awakened. kind of ~ mother teresa quote: not about them, it's always been about you and God
Take a moment today and purposefully connect with your higher self. It is the part of you that is always connected with Source. It is filled with love, Compassion and wisdom. It holds no judgement or fear. It is you in your purest form of light.
