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 demonstrated in the personal experience 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!

Finding the spiritual strength to hold my noodles during a health crisis - Depicts a very Zen-looking bowl of spaghetti and meatballs

At this time of my life, I was working with the lessons in A Course in Miracles, and I had built up a discipline of suspending my judgements, which therefore created space for the Holy Spirit to have enough room to allow me to receive and be bestowed with miracles. I had come...Read more

Healing the subconscious from sexual objectification - close up of woman lying down with lipstick and introspective gaze

One day in November last year, I was driving around and listening to The Moth radio hour. A man was telling a story of parenting his two teenage boys on matters of sexuality. The subject came up because the boys’ mom had caught each one on two different occasions surreptitiously...Read more

A robin joins the author in a mystical reality

I went to a beach party late Saturday night, after my shift waiting tables. The party was for someone I really didn’t know that well; yet I was invited. So I thought: why not, plus the night was warm and breezy. I can’t explain it, but this night felt like there was a magical feeling...Read more

Ascending into the Light of Love

Throughout my spiritual journey, my ability to experience love has changed. I always had a very high ideal of love. I always believed that love was, in its purest form, absolute, unconditional and perfectly stable. That was a hope that kept me striving ever higher to achieve that...Read more

Walking the fine line of following the flow

Upon waking, I realized I felt like reading my friend’s manuscript… finally. He had sent it with me on my vacation, hoping I would read it on the plane and have feedback for him upon my return home. I did not read en route, however, due to the minor but constant random vehicular motion...Read more

Bodily Love - A woman joyfully peers at her reflection in a glass wall

The other day, I had a spontaneous turn around in how I see my body. I think what comes next in this piece might be a slightly taboo topic. So, I’ll handle it with tact, and hopefully we can all be adults about it. :)

I had always viewed the various liquids and solids my body...Read more

Coming to know Jesus through the way his frequency opens up stronger awareness of birds chirping in a tree

I've always had a love for Jesus. But not in the religious sense. I was never religious nor was I ever raised that way. I think this affinity became known to me around the age of 6 or so. I can't really explain where it came from. It just was.

As a young girl, I just assumed...Read more

Christmas Star: The Spiritual Self Depicted

I was driving down the road one day, pondering. By pondering, I mean considering subjects within the theater of my mind and feeling what I can see deeper about them intuitively. Driving is great for that.

On this day, I was reflecting on the fact that there seems to be a rather...Read more

Following intuition as a navigation system - model motorcycle at a crossroads of intuition and logic

I rent a barn and eight acres of someone’s farm where I stable my horse and another horse that is boarded with me. I care for both horses myself daily. So daily, I drive my truck into my landlord’s driveway and park off to the left by the barn.

For the first few years of renting...Read more

Heart among weeds - Sarah Elizabeth Photography

"Can you forgive him?" he asked me. 

I sat in silence slightly stunned and numb by the question. No one had ever asked me this before. 

Within moments, those words… that question… started to create sensations that traveled throughout my nervous system. Something was...Read more
