156: The 6 Best Ways to Think For Yourself


During the holidays and all year round you are being told to buy something, to think a certain way.  Most of your life you will be coerced to think in ways that go against what you believe.  You maybe tempted to go along with the crowd but that will not always serve you.  What will serve you is to think for yourself, to feel what resonates best with what your higher self is telling you.  Today I talk about the six best ways to do that.
