Episode 26 - Ori, I Choose You

Can you tell that I have kids who have watched Pokemon?  (lol)  I do feel that this is an appropriate title for this episode though.  There are a few questions that are top of mind when working with folks in the Orisha Wisdom Community... and this is one of the top questions that I get...  How do I work with my Ori?...    This episode is geared towards doing the work to get you towards positive things this year and going forward..  

I'm so happy that the wisdom of Ifa left us tools to steer us towards success in our lives.
