Aspiring Mystic Blog

The Aspiring Mystic blog is a collection of personal stories of first-hand experiences of challenge and insight native to walking the mystical path. All stories are factual and true as experienced by the author.

Each Aspiring Mystic blog post contains two parts:

  • The Art: A personal experience of insight or other sharable significance, true as recalled by the author
  • The Science: Explication written by Sacred Reality staff examining one or more issues that universally impact everyone's journey of self-inquiry along the mystical spiritual path

The art sections of the blog posts are available to all. The science sections are written for Sacred Reality members: those who feel personally supported by the way Sacred Reality discusses the truth of being human and who thus feel good about giving a little something to support the ministry in return.

So, read, explore, enjoy. If it resonates and you want to become a member, welcome!

Manifestation is Communication - Herbal tea for two symbolizes a shared journey of co-creativity

I have always pondered manifestation from the perspective of myself focused on manifesting some thing or other that I wanted or needed: What’s the science of how I use my mind to manifest? What is that supposed to feel like inside my being? And what are my results? Did it work? And if...Read more

As my drive started to wind through forested areas...Read more
