Energy Profiling: The Personality System That Revolutionized My Family

Liliana Owen, Journalist

October 22, 2019

About four years ago, my family was kind of a mess. We weren’t very nice and understanding of each other, and we were being pushed to do stuff that was not very accepting of ourselves.
