Call # 6

Rebecca Skeele

Author of You Can Make It Heaven

Topic: Asking Yourself the Big Questions: Claiming Your Birthright as a CoCreator

We are multidimensional beings and gods in the making. That said ... How do I complete the old paradigms of eons of fear-based conditioning? How do I deconstruct deep limiting beliefs with compassion and loving? and How do I embody, live and manifest these fresh, new and emergent realities for the greater good of all?

This lively discussion will delve into the "how-to" mystery and part magic of our collective and individual human/spiritual conscious-birthright-shifting- morphing and claiming co-creation of heaven on earth.
