When I was about 10 years old, I started researching Egyptian hieroglyphics. I could read and write quite a few words after a while. I still remember the first few books I borrowed from the library on the subject. But for some reason, what I remember most about this period in my life is the smell of Suave strawberry shampoo. I’ve always made strong sense memories, and I was obviously using this shampoo at the time.
Since then any time I start digging into my past, especially the remote past, I smell the smell of strawberry shampoo. Since this period of time in my life was particular precious to me – I believe I was curious about Egyptian writing because of past lives, among other things – the more dear the time period is to me, the stronger the smell gets.
I’ve decided to do a continuing series of relevant posts from old journals I’ve kept throughout the years on subjects like Kunlun, the Aka Dua, Reiki, dream/shadow work, and so on, in an attempt to not only share with you what I’ve been through but also to help and encourage you on your own path. On the one hand, reading some of the things I used to write, I’m amazed I ever made it this far, and on the other hand, I’m surprised at how obvious it all was and that I didn’t go crazy in the process.
But here’s hoping…
