Listen to the podcast for a shared story from Claudia Welch - The Power to Heal the Past
Wake before dawn, daily, preferably at the same time each morning. Spend some time in loving meditation or contemplation, preferably facing the same direction each morning, no matter where you are, in a room or space that feels safe and undisturbed.
Apply some 100% natural essential oil of rose or other pleasing, sweet scent to the wrists, neck and to the center of the sternum.
Sing or listen to a melodious, loving song.
