Indigenous Wisdom for Spirit-Based Change with Sherri Mitchell
Indigenous Attorney and Activist, Sherri Mitchell, says we all come into this world with a set of instructions. These instructions guide us toward our highest purpose. They lead us to the essential truths that live deep within us. This truth is encoded in our DNA. It is embedded in our genetic memory. It vibrates within us on a cellular level. Every element of life carries this vibration. Every living being has its own vibrational tone. When these tones are combined, they form the voice of creation. If we learn to listen closely, we can begin to hear that voice and allow it to guide our steps through life. Then we can begin to attune our daily actions with our higher purpose and become who we were meant to be.
Sherri Mitchell was born and raised on the Penobscot Indian reservation.
