Getting Honest with Ourselves (S1, EP2 | The Soul's Work Podcast)

How do we discern between the voice of honesty and the voice of fear when faced with a tough decision? In this episode, we explore this distinction so that we can get more connected with our authentic voice.


In this episode, Janice discusses the practice of identifying our core values to make life decisions that are in alignment with our authentic selves. She discusses her #1 core value, honesty, and shares her learnings on how to discern between the voice of honesty (or intuition) and the voice of fear when faced with a tough decision.
