Learning How to Make Your Dreams Your Pathway: Interview with Sheila Balgobin.
I have had numerous dreams that I wake up with fragments of the same and I dismiss them as just my mind not resting well. Other times I have had such vivid dreams I think about them for days. Yet I cannot say I have had a dream that saved my life, literally.
In this episode of the Your Power echoes Show, I had a chat with Sheila Balgobin. Sheila grew up and worked on Wall Street for years as a successful banker, yet she did not feel successful. Sheila Turned her life around following a move to London and her travels and spiritual seeking took her to other places including Africa.
