Thanks for that, yes it was helpful! And I guess it's the same or similar for the other gateway transitions.

When you speak about the Gateways being like a corridor, I sense that even though we walk through a doorway (gateway in this instance :) ) and are moving onwards down the next corridor there is still an awareness and working with the door/gateway that we've just come through. For a while, along our metaphorical corridor, we are actually much closer to the door/gateway behind us rather than the one in front. We may continue to move forwards at whatever pace, until we gradually approach the next gateway on our journey and feel more of it's influence. I guess the "tasters" you describe could be compared to glimpses down the corridor of the distant approaching Gateway, until we get closer and closer and then it is right in front of us and the roller coaster begins!!!!

Thanks, Love, Fiona
