The idea for Mystical Strings, then called Peace Weaving, started taking shape in 2012. At the time I was a ministerial student and bachelors degree candidate of the University of Metaphysics. Ordained in 2013, I minister primarily through music and poetry.
In 2014 I received a masters degree in Metaphysical Science (M.Msc.) from the University of Metaphysics. My masters thesis, Journaling for Higher Consciousness, is available on request. Simply contact me if you’re interested in this research or a journaling workshop.
In March, 2016, I received the Msc.D. Doctor of Metaphysical Science degree for my dissertation entitled “Breathing and Voicework in Metaphysical Practice.” I now offer toning workshops and individualized sessions based on this research and practice. My dissertation is available on request for anyone interested in reading it.
In March, 2016, I received the Msc.D. from the University of Metaphysics. This is the Doctor of Metaphysical Science degree.
On March 15, 2019, I married my spiritual partner and the love of my life, Frederick Douglass Grimes, III. Since then, my author name displayed with posts is Dr. Crystal Grimes. However, it applies to the entire site, and this is a WordPress feature that cannot be changed. I just want to be clear about when I received these degrees.
My intention is to choose self-empowerment for everyone. This goes beyond self-help, intellectual exercise, emotional growth, and behavioral changes. These things are often the result; however, empowerment comes from Spirit, Source, or your true spiritual nature. The connection with God-within, and living from that connection, is what I practice, teach and share.
Each of us has a song, i.e. a divine purpose, mission, and reason for living where and when we do. Nothing happens by chance. My intention is to support those who are ready, in awakening this inner song to share it with the world. By doing so we fulfill our souls’ purpose.
My soul’s purpose is to share concepts, ideas, and experiences of mystical Oneness through the creative arts. Music is most prevalent; however, I also share poetry, meditations, prayer treatments, lectures, and articles. Through these – and my occasional weaving, knitting, and crochet work – Oneness is the common thread. It brings people together, as we are in God.
