Have you ever wondered if you are psychic? Or have any type of ‘powers’? Maybe you feel that you have a good connection with the Earth or the night sky. Maybe it’s just a gut feeling that you have, but you know there is something more to you that the average person.
Over the life of this blog, I have written a few posts that may be able to help you figure out if there is something more to you. Although no one can tell you for sure, there are commonalities between certain types of mystics.
But first I do want to make something clear.. In trying to write this post I had a very hard time trying to figure out what word covers all of the possibilities, without excluding anyone or focusing too much on others. Two words that I came up with were:
Those sound fancy and all.. but what do they actually mean?? According to Wikipedia…
Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy that examines the fundamental nature of reality, including the relationship between mind and matter, between substance and attribute, and between potentiality and actuality. The word “metaphysics” comes from two Greek words that, together, literally mean “after or behind or among [the study of] the natural”.
A mystic is a person who practices mysticism, or a reference to a mystery, mystic craft, first hand-experience or the occult. Mysticism is the practice of religious ecstasies (religious experiences during alternate states of consciousness), together with whatever ideologies, ethics, rites, myths, legends, and magic may be related to them. It may also refer to the attainment of insight in ultimate or hidden truths, and to human transformation supported by various practices and experiences.
To me, and for the purpose of this blog, I believe that the term mystic is more fitting. But in that I feel that Mystic can also encompass metaphysical.
Now onto the goodies…
Take a read through these posts and see if there are any signs that stick that may help you figure out what you purpose here on Earth is. Or at least tell you a little more about yourself..
