We talk about…

  • What working in a psychiatric inpatient unit was like for Lisa
  • How synchronicity helps us better understand what life is showing us
  • Why it’s important to say yes to synchronicity
  • What Dr. Miller would say to someone who believes synchronicity is merely coincidence
  • What role spirituality plays in depression
  • The difference between achieving and awakened awareness
  • How not saying what’s on your heart could be a missed opportunity
  • The three questions you should be asking yourself  

Dr. Miller also does two guided practices in today's episode. One that helps you see where synchronicity has been at play in your life and one that helps awaken you to your natural spiritual awareness.
