Chapter 6: Your Ori (Mind) is Divine

Photography: Will Coleman Ph.D.


Ile ori (House of Consciousness).  This is a representation of the divine consciousness that each of us has and is our unmediated connection with creator.


There is a divine being situated on top of your neck.  You brought it along with you from the other side.  Your ori is your constant, life-long companion.
