The fact of the matter is that vulnerability (AKA alligator tears), in the end, leads to strength and peace. When we break down the ego’s (who we think we are supposed to be) walls of expectation and step into the authenticity of the Self (who we ARE), most times, it involves a sort of “death” and grieving and… guess what?

- Each other (think the sun – the sharing)
- The Heavens/Universe and higher frequencies (Holy Spirit/angels/guides/ascended masters)
All we have to do is ask for healing. The crying is the clearing.
So, grab a chair, some popcorn and watch your favorite
Much love and cleansing,
