You can change your destiny at any time. Even the past. Trust me.
“I will communicate with your guide who will speak non-stop for a while, and then you can ask questions,” she said before sitting down to read me.
I was skeptical at first. Did I really believe a stranger could peer into my past life (if there is such a thing) and offer clues into the here and now?
Just as the doubt crept in, she intoned, “you chose a difficult life, with lots of lessons. If things are not going well, just know you chose a hard path. You’re a sweet, kind spirit who selected a very steep mountain to climb so when the time comes you can be at the top. Information comes easy to you, but relationships come hard.”
She was on track with that assessment. A flashback of all the men’s faces I’d loved and dated fluttered through my mind. Too many, I thought.
Then things took a more serious turn. “The first half of your life was difficult, but the second half will be beautiful. Look forward to age 40. But unburden yourself with regard to childhood friendships, your brother’s death, your friend’s passing, and all the other deaths you mourned. Your tendency is to carry the burden. You carry around a huge bag of troubles and add to it all the time. You need to let it go and release it. You are meant to be happy and you’re very honest.”
Yes, sometimes too honest. With a Sun in Sagittarius, my hubris is being too blunt. Couple that with an East Coast upbringing, and it’s no wonder people react negatively once I steer them toward my perception of what’s bugging them. Trying to help people see what they cannot in themselves always backfires–especially if you’re a Sagittarian. In fact, it’s probably why I’ve scared off so many men along the way.
She continued, “See the humor in everything. There’s a little light around you all the time. It’s only you who keeps that illumination on the low end when you can handle more power, authority, responsibility now. My guides are showing Ireland and Scotland as really good places for you to travel. Those are nourishing places for you. You had some past life activity there. They were happy, fulfilling, fun lives. You were strawberry- blonde, perhaps red headed, very slight, a happy girl and happy relationships with animals, pigs, goats, dogs, even giraffes.”
Did she just say a giraffe in Scotland? I’d been to Ireland in 1999 with a close girlfriend and felt it was someplace I’d been before. Raised Jewish, my mother questioned why I wanted to take an excursion to a Catholic country. I decided not to tell her I found the men so alluring, the land rich with culture and family ties, a place of profound literature, and a countryside so lush it made your mouth water just looking at it from inside a tour bus in the Wicklow mountains. Dare I tell her the men were all-too enticing?
Scotland was a place which lured me from a young age. While traveling in the lowlands near Avimore, I met a girl who I felt I’d known my whole life. We knew each other a few minutes but would spend two days and nights partying. We still write to each other today, nearly 10 years later.
Back to my reading, my reader said that in 30 years of helping people uncover their past lives, I was only the second to receive this distinct message: “Chant these Sanskrit words. They will help you heal. I will say them on the end of this tape so you can practice them. Chant every day for five minutes: Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.” I thought I had nothing to lose. With the amount of death, strife, and turmoil I’d survived, how could it hurt?
Well that was nearly four years ago and today I am still saying those words morning and night. Since I began, I quit smoking, taking antidepressants, began believing in myself, dated better men, recognized my negative patterns and thinking, and launched a better career for myself. I’ve also met highly positive friends and people along the way. Once I began chanting, I was told the words could change your past life karma, too. I’m more aware of my karmic burden and listen to my own inner wisdom. Delving into the past for lessons we can learn in the present is a valuable exercise. I’m living proof. I encourage you to get a past life reading and share your experiences.
