The power of hope is a healing force that is attainable to each of us, but we hold onto beliefs that can get in the way of doing what we feel driven or meant to do. Sometimes we think we are not good enough or haven’t achieved enough – we aren’t worthy enough – to step out in faith and allow ourselves to be bold in our actions and really claim who we are and what we’re going to do in our lives.  Spiritual Healer Alex Morgan visits to tell us how to recognize what is in the way of our own personal growth and development and what we can do when we encounter these problems.  Music by folk artists Bill Steely and Where’s Dave in this episode of The Wendy Edwards Show.
