definition of genius, the answer to what genius is and what it isn't;
answering age old questions about
genius and insanity,
why you get so many evil genius-es, how to stop being afraid of being a genius
your genius factor, and many more besides.
Most of all, we learn how to steer questions and how to understand the
answers - that's the magic of Project Sanctuary.
In 2008, Silvia Hartmann, creator of Project Sanctuary, unveiled a unique
set of 23 symbols that form a metaphoric alphabet that BOTH the conscious mind,
AND the energy mind can understand.
The purpose of the Genius Symbols is to make it easy for people to start
asking questions of their own energy mind, and to understand the answers they
By controlling the game and story through set ups, creating "flash visions"
(data transmissions from the energy mind) for professional creativity, art and
problem solving becomes easy and reliable. The Genius Symbols can also be used
in magic, for divination and of course, in therapy and healing.
By giving the physical body something to hold in the hands, and the physical
eyes something to look at, The Genius Symbols greatly assist in retaining focus
and attention, and even very experienced Project Sanctuary Players find them
fascinating and very useful as a welcome addition to the toolkit of Project

A central aspect to working with the Genius Symbols is to make one's own symbol set, out of materials that one feels drawn to, and to inscribe the symbols oneself according to the instructions.

Here are some examples of every day symbol sets readers have sent in.

Don asked: Hi there, I have just purchased the Genius Symbols e-book, which is great. I am having trouble relating to the symbol of the alien.

Must I use this symbol?

There's so many things you can do with the Genius Symbols - creative story telling is of course amongst them, and this can have many uses.

Imprinting or charging water with intention is one of those things that divides the skeptics from the believers. However, if you are really smart, you'll realise that actions combined with intention have a powerful effect on the human psyche and can be used to bring about positive change, whether you believe in energy or not.
Here's an exercise to create a powerful "magic potion" using the Genius Symbols, your intention and a bottle of plain water that we will turn into Genius Water that money can't buy.
