Dreams & Trance States with Jesse Lyon
What an INCREDIBLE way to end Season One! Jesse and I have a blast discussing hypnotherapy, a clap back to skeptics and how we tend to live so much of our lives in a form of trance. We laugh over dream interpretations, what Jesse would eradicate from the human belief system, and I come to a breakthrough regarding my beloved spirit animal, the deer fawn. Could you draw a Unideeagle (that right, it's a Unicorn-Deer-Eagle) for a chance to be featured on Jesses page?
