A little over a year ago I completed the course work, including a 98 page written exam, and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Metaphysical Science. I was also ordained as a Metaphysical Minister and certified as a Metaphysical Practitioner. It was the first of three steps in earning my PhD in Metaphysics.
If you’ve read my bio, you’ll know that I already have a B.A. in Psychology and an M.Sci. in Technical Communication – along with exploring a master’s program in Social Work (not the right path for me) and, years later, a Ph.D. program in Communication (also, not the right path, although the first year was fabulous and closed some open questions for me).
I had no problem with my Master’s Thesis for my communication degree, Hunting the Big Bad Wolf: A Material-Semiotic Analysis of Community Discourse. It was actually fun! When I was done, I wanted to rewrite it, better – but my committee was satisfied, so I had to be as well.
Right now, I’ve completed the course work and the 51-page written exam for my Master’s degree in Metaphysical Science. Now, I’m working on my thesis. I’ve encountered my first case of writer’s block.
I have the topic and an approved thesis statement, I believe strongly that what I want to write about is a significant piece in the process of healing and becoming whole from a metaphysical perspective … but … I’m struggling to begin.
So, I’ll be posting bits and piece of my thesis here, to share with you, to receive your comments and feedback, to help me move forward with this paper so that I can turn it into a publishable book and then move on to my doctoral dissertation.
Here’s my thesis statement:
The stories we tell ourselves – about who we are, what the world is, and our place in the world – create our experience and reality.
This thesis will show how changing our inner stories will inevitably change our lives. Furthermore, this thesis will demonstrate that using metaphysical tools such as affirmations and visualizations, as well as astrology and tarot, can put us in touch with our higher consciousness, help us re-imagine our stories, and lead us to a satisfying and successful life.
What do you think? Have you had an experience where changing your inner story also changed your outer life? I’d love to hear about it — and perhaps interview you for my thesis.
You can support my work on Patreon with an ongoing monthly donation.
Your patronage will allow me to
create audio meditations and visualizations,
hire a writing consultant to help me to craft my next book, and
teach workshops and classes.
My big dream is to create a collaborative and integrative healing center.
I’d love for you to join me in these ventures.
