Do you have high hopes for your life, but feel there is a part of you that is keeping you stuck? Do you know what you want, but have trouble understanding the blocks or patterns that get in the way? As Carl Jung stated, "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." Imagine living your life with insight into your unconscious, and alignment with your true-self. No more unwittingly repeating the past, thinking early conditioning/survival techniques are reality. Instead, live from who you truly are and watch life flow easily as you enjoy being with yourself and living.
