Marilyn Alauria says that our guides have purposes that are big, limitless, infinite, and constantly growing. They know what our soul is here to do and have wisdom that we don’t have access to yet. Guides help us access the wisdom within ourselves—to grow, learn, open to possibilities, and live in alignment with and reflect the truth of our souls. But guides may be more than you imagine. Join our guests, author Marilyn Alauria, and Tibetan medical doctor, Tawni Tidwell, in this riveting conversation about our personal guidance.
