What I've learned being Catholic for so long and then now being more open to other modalities, spirituality and of energy healing, I think it that all groomed me to be the person I am today and the belief systems I have today. ~ Berni Xiong

I'm constantly trying to improve and transform and learning how to letting go of all that guilt. ~ Berni Xiong
