Deep Soul Dive Podcast
Karen Olivia Kiely

I had the pleasure of being on the Deep Soul Dive podcast with Karen Olivia Kiely  


On the podcast we talked about: 

"The significance of energy and the intuitive ability we all have to read it. How to recognize signs from the universe in all the crazy ways it sends them. Facing the fear of stepping into a role of offering healing gifts and how to get out of your own way. The links between sobriety or sober curiosity and intuitive abilities...and a lot more!"
