The Antahkarana

Finally… Stained Glass Antahkaranas listed for sale on Etsy

I’ll see how it goes and maybe start listing on ebay too. But Etsy.com seems like a nice site for handmade artwork. My shop name is Antahkarana Glass Creations, but you only need to search on “antahkarana” to find them. I also have some feather suncatchers listed too.

Hope you enjoy my work, it is always a little nerve wracking to display art “out there”!

LOVE and PEACE

They are the First or Physical Mind, the Second or Emotional Mind, the Third or Intellectual Mind, the Fourth or Spirit Mind, and the Fifth Mind.

Briefly, the Physical Mind is located in the lower belly area called dan tien, which also corresponds to the second Chakra. The Physical Mind has an agenda that deals only with its physical wants, needs and desires regardless of consequence or rational thinking. It has no need to be loved – only food, shelter and sex – not always in that order. Also, physical health and the desire to have things that will enhance the physical experience.

The Second Mind, the Emotional Mind resides in the solar plexus area, called Golden Bowl in Qigong training. It is where our emotional vulnerability and history reside. The Emotional Mind has one agenda, to be cared about, often times confused with being loved. (more…)
