New to Spiritual Experiences?
One reason, among many, that prompts people to visit this website is that they are seeking explanations or reassurance concerning a puzzling occurrence in their life. We have put together a list of some of the most common — a lot more common than you might think — events that can trigger a shift in the way that one’s consciousness relates to one’s spiritual essence. You may view this list here, and are welcome to contact us if you desire elaboration or wish to discuss your own experience. All the volunteers who make up the Academy are glad you stopped by and hope you find this site informative and our work gratifying.
