    This is our last podcast conversation for this series and our guest is again, Elsie Spittle. What a beautiful way to end Season 1 of a podcast that was born out of a deep feeling. She mentioned in this episode how Syd pointed that an insight, an enlightenment experience, could happen to any of us, bringing the Mystery and the Mystical to our everyday experience.

    Mette Louise Holland - "The Feeling of Who You Really Are."


    On this episode, we talked with a friend and colleague, Mette Louise Holland. She is licensed psychologist who lives in Denmark with her husband and children. We had a delightful conversation, I loved her story of being introduced to The Three Principles and Sydney Banks. Enjoy it! From Mette Louise, "An understanding of the principles of innate health has made all the difference in the world to me. It has changed my life upside down for the better and I have never enjoyed my life, my relationship, my children and my job more than I do now – honestly, there’s not a single spot in my life it hasn’t affected in a way far beyond my imagination. And as for my work life as a psychologist, I feel so much more light, enthusiastic and hopeful for every human being I meet in my practice now, and my mind doesn’t waste a fraction of the energy I used to innocently invest in insecure thinking prior to this understanding."
