DBM Episode 27 The Upper Room







Dear Mama,

If you’re feeling like you’re in quicksand, disconnected, or running on empty, then this is the episode for you! It is a reminder to not to limit spirit, that spirit is in EVERYTHING and we must continue to dig deeper for a higher connection.  In this episode we revisit Episode 4 How I Made It Ova, recorded two years ago and evaluate our spiritual evolution since then. This is an “Empty the Crates” episode meaning we recorded it a while back and never released it. So some of the commentary may be a little dated.  It’s still a gem though yall. Listen & ask yourself: What do I need to be rooted in to gain alignment on all levels of my being, in every aspect of my identity to manifest the life I need for me and my children to thrive? Let us know what your answer is or even if you couldn’t come up with an answer send us your thoughts and questions about this episode.
