Behind the Stories: Websites of Symbols

I use a number of interesting websites when I write. I thought some of you might be interested in looking through them on your own. My genre of writing is called visionary fiction but mystic, new age, metaphysical and spiritual are also descriptive of my style.

My characters seek to improve their understanding of their place and purpose in the universe, in order to improve their lives and the lives of people with whom they come in contact. Therefore, many of the websites are about symbols, chakras, creative use of numbers (numerology and gematria), and religions/ philosophies. I Google everything (Who doesn’t!) and use Wikipedia a lot, too, as well as sites that provide meanings of names.

I’ll not get into a discussion of incorrect info on the web. We all know it’s there. So, I triangulate my data by checking several sources.

The websites are listed below with short descriptions. I am not the best at making live links, so we’ll see what happens!
