Shattering the Illusions of Self

We spent our childhoods figuring out who we are. We’ve padded our adult life with things, jobs, situations that reflect that which we think we are. And, if you’ve read the last three posts, you’ve focused even more on the Self and the many… Continue Reading “Shattering the Illusions of Self”

Breaking Out of Your Box

Some are: clairaudient (clear hearing): the ability to hear words or sounds others cannot, telepathy, perhaps ringing in the ears clairsentient (clear… Continue Reading “The Clairs”

Creating Sanctuary

rock outcropping

Years ago, back in my mid-twenties, one of my best friends told me my apartment was a sanctuary. It was calm, clean, a place to just be. How many of us can claim we have created our very own sanctuary? Nowadays, my sanctuary isn’t… Continue Reading “Creating Sanctuary”
