As we become more connected to our heart’s intuitive Intelligence, we start making better choices, and we become kinder and more compassionate, appreciative, cooperative and collaborative.

What’s needed now is a more conscious integration of the heart and brain, so that the mind becomes a servant of something higher – it is the mind that is the big winner when you do that.

All of the work is based on the principle that as you increase your connection with higher capacities, what we call the flow of intuition, that strengthened connection is what expands consciousness.
