How to Tap Into Your Authentic Power & Trust Your Inner Knowing w/Ashley Bernardi

Every single living soul on this planet is equipped with a deep inner knowing.

It’s where our greatest transformation takes place.

It’s how we access our authentic power.

The challenge we all face is truly trusting that wisdom: listening to it and leaning into it, which can be hard because of our traumas and all the fear in this world today.

By going into our traumas and integrating them, facing and overcoming our fears head on, that authentic power becomes our default way of being.

How do we use moments of stillness to  tap into our inner knowing?

Why do we have to change our understanding and treatment of death?

In this episode, I’m joined by media relations expert, author and certified Life Designer®, Ashley Bernardi.

She talks about how the road she took to find her authentic power, and the dark moment that woke her up.

Once we realize that we’re not the ones in control but that we can control our words and our energy, that’s where we transform.

-Ashley Bernardi
