EP 157: HEALING WITH FUTURE SELF JOURNALING WITH NICOLE LEPERA

Healing from past wounds takes the ability to reconnect with yourself and the drive to regulate your nervous system. I am so excited to share this conversation on healing with today’s guest, Nicole LePera. Nicole is a Holistic Psychologist who helps people on their journey to wellness and healing themselves. We talked about so much in this episode including the empowerment that comes through your own healing and the power that comes from knowing you can destroy the parts of you that aren’t serving you. She shares how you can use future self journaling to create a more conscious awareness around patterns and behaviors you’ve developed, how to trace mistakes back to childhood wounds and her thoughts on psychedelics for healing.
