The mysteries of transition into Sacred Space and the work that can be accomplished in that transformed state are not easily described. The tool of instruction is a viable one, but often lacks the imaginative quality that sets up the state of being able to visualize what is occurring. Fiction is a wonderful venue to explore these mysteries and the imagery that is naturally conjured creates a dynamic imprint from which to draw in your own practice. With this thought in mind, I am posting an excerpt and links to Parts I and II of a writing of a piece of Esoteric fiction entitled- X’anyuae. Enjoy!

So,I’ve decided to step outside of my comfort zone and try something different- esoteric fiction!

X’anyuae – Part II
X’anyuae exhaled a clear and intention-filled “yes!” and she stepped through the archway and into the sacred chamber. As soon as she passed through she felt the first of the changes in her physical form take hold. Heat spread through her like wildfire. It was not in the least unpleasant as she had developed a tolerance for this phase of the transition. It had not always been so and the memory of her first time entering this chamber flashed quickly through her mind’s eye. Read More…
