Aliveness, Human Stories, and Gratitude

Hi Holly, I just wanted to express my deep appreciation and gratitude for the reading you have done for me. I was worried this could be a tough question I was asking and was reluctant to lay it on you for fear that you might feel the pain too but instead you turned this experience into something incredibly uplifting! It was a healing experience for me and paving the way for change. You showed me the way and that foundation is there. Now, I have this overwhelming need to act and change. I think the biggest take from your reading is that I’m no longer afraid to act and you turned a smoldering hope into hope that burns bright and beautiful like fire! It’s huge! I cannot thank you enough!! You are absolutely wonderful with such a deep understanding, spirituality and empathy! I am so happy that you were there right at the time I needed this the most!
