I love this podcast as an extension of her music and learning more about you as both an artist as on a more personal level. Been listening to India Arie's music for 15 years, since I was 15, and still hoping to see her live one day here in the Netherlands. Still my most favorite artist and always will be, thank you so much for your healing, inspirational and loving music❣🥰

I share many of your philosophies in life. You quoted Maya Angelou, who said"You teach people how to treat you." This often comes to mind when people attempt to drop in on me without notice. Everyone who knows me well knows I don't like it and will likely refuse to accommodate these visits. Question: Do you think it is wrong of me to refuse to open my door to unannounced visitors or feel unobligated to entertain them? [P.S. They have multiple ways of contacting me in advance - landline, cell phone, email, text, FB, and Messenger.]

She is simply amazing! Two spirits that I look forward to meeting, God and India. lol. I met her this weekend in Chicago. We wore the same colors! Yeah, I shed a tear, lol. I wish I could tell her what she has done for me as a person, as a woman. she has no idea who and what she is! A sister to the the sisterless. a mother to the motherless. Through her words. I get a vision of who God is. One of the most beautifully women I have ever met! I feel her soul!

it's so interesting that you find Break the Shell light hearted because for me it's heavy, it's a punch, is world shaking. "life's gonna hurt but it's meant to be felt" "it's time to peel back all of the layers that you put between who you're meant to be and who you are" ❤️❤️
