nukhet hendricksNukhet Hendricks  One night, I went to bed feeling rather unsettled. In my dream, I heard a voice, gentle and quiet at first; saying “listen to your heart”. I did not pay attention the first time I heard it, or the second time. But the divine messages are given in threes…The third time, the angles were so loud when they said “listen to your heart” that I became fully awake and sat up in bed.  I told them that I heard them.  They said …“Good, now go back to sleep!” as if it was possible! Nothing has been the same since! The rest is history as they say.  Hearing the angels that night re-opened my heart and my ears to their voices and I reconnected with my angels, my soul…my essence!    super-wideband-audio
