Welcome to Tunnel Vision 8!


Tunnel Vision 8 is my first blog. Thank you for visiting! I hope my blog posts inspire you and help you to grow in your spirituality. This blog is a collection of quotes, stories, spiritual reflections, and helpful tips on how to stay well.

I chose the blog name “Tunnel Vision 8” when I was on a spirituality retreat in Wisconsin. I did not bring my computer, so I used the retreat center’s computer. I needed one of my photos for the header of my blog, so I looked at the photos on my new phone, and all I had were photos of flowers and some tunnel pictures from canoeing with my daughter. I decided to use the tunnel picture (see the photo above), and the name of the blog was born.

I like the image of the tunnel. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel. The tunnel also represents travel and speed. Many people who have out-of-body experiences talk about moving through a tunnel.

The number “8” is a unique number. When the number “8” is sideways, it is the infinity symbol. According to Wikipedia, the number eight is a lucky number in Chinese and other Asian cultures. In Buddhism, the 8-spoked Dharmacakra represents the Noble Eightfold Path. There is also the Eight Limbs of Yoga in the Yoga Sutras. The number eight in the Bible represents a new beginning, creation, and eternal life.

With love to you,
