(Image by Rube Goldberg, of course!) Over the last couple of weeks I've had a small upswing in dream success: Not interpretation, or remembering more (in fact I seem to be remembering less again lately), but rather, how my dreams are put together. There have been several different puzzle pieces that have shown up from … Continue reading Dream Construction: The Me Behind The Curtain
(Image from Ask A Biologist) Happy Spring! If you've never read Richard Bach's novel Illusions, here's the reason it features a blue feather on the cover: the humble messianic figure, Donald Shimoda, gives Bach an exercise in manifestation by saying that if you think of a blue feather hard enough - imagine it, concentrate, visualize … Continue reading Blue Feathers, Free To $10 And Up
