Proactive Transformation.

Today’s conversation is with Barry Mangione, author of “No Easy Answers – A book of life changing questions.”

Today Barry and I dive into an exploration of today’s topic, Proactive Transformation.

How do we proactively transform our lives instead of waiting until some part of our life blows up and we crash and burn before we finally pay attention to what’s tearing our lives apart?

How do we more actively choose what parts of ourselves and our lives we would like to transform rather that being dragged kicking and screaming into more grueling transformative experiences?

Conversations with the Spirit of Life.

This conversation with author, speaker and spirit medium, Sandy Alemian, explores the experience of living an every day life while having an ongoing and direct conversation with God.
