Have you ever walked into a place and thought “I’ve been here before”?  Came upon a place where you have that feeling you have been there before … perhaps in another lifetime? Let’s explore some experiences.  Do you have one … two … or more?  Are they related?  What are they telling you?  Are you open to listen?
