Spiritual awakenings and divine revelations are sought after communications based on our higher consciousness or higher selves. This superconsciousness is designed to assist us in reaching enlightenment but are we truly capable of transforming ourselves into pure egoless love?

Dr. Susan Shumsky who studied Transcendental Meditation with the Maharishi and worked in his inner circle for years shares her intimate experience with the famous Yogi.
