More Joy, Flow, and Peace

At the root of our emotions is energy, and energy has a frequency. We can think of this as vibrational frequency. Every moment of every day, we are broadcasting our frequency out into the world, and we are picking up on others’ frequency. We’ve all heard someone say “they give off good vibes” or...
