Let your soul be made whole!

build on beauty-01 (2)This lesson for many sometimes takes a little time to learn but the sooner it is learned the better off one will be. This lesson is a lesson of not just identity but finding comfort in that identity

Let your soul be made whole!

build on beauty-01 (2)The sabotage spirit, which comes to put a stop or undermine the work that you are doing, always comes from someone who is in relationship with you and genuinely loves you.


This is why most of the time, the individual who is a potential offender goes out of his or her way to be nice to you, compliment you and want to be around you. Sometimes you won’t even know their potential in this area and quite honestly many of the offenders won’t see their own potential………..
