Reclaim Your Light

Nearly two years ago, I sat at my desk to watch an intro to Kabbalah video. I didn’t know it at the time, but this message would change my life, catapulting me toward the path of soul transformation. I knew very little about Kabbalah at the time; my life was unrecognizable after the perfect trifecta of disaster exploded in the same month: January 2015. My grandfather died, my fiance and I split up and my sister was diagnosed with brain cancer.
