Awakening Soul Connections – Reflections of a Seeker

SuperMoonRoofTops“Children who remember their past lives offer the most compelling evidence yet for reincarnation… when adults listen-really listen-to what the children are trying to say, their own understanding of spirit and of children
are changed forever.”
  – Carol Bowman (“Children’s Past Lives”)

Posted on the OHC Web Site:  In a year, I’ve chalked up hundreds of hours of facilitating hypnosis plus spent countless hours in trance myself, usually caught-up in a past life regression as research for the next book, in collaboration with Tariq Sattaur, Director of the OHC. It’s been an interesting and sometimes daunting journey.

I’ve noticed that the people appearing in my past lives are either people that I know presently, people I’ve just met, …or are about to meet. Like characters in a play, many of the people in my past lives are beginning to show-up in this one. It’s as if we’re all gathering to play yet another role together. The world is indeed a stage!

In one past life, in Naples in 1800, my husband died while fighting at sea. After his death, I bore our son. During the birth, Tariq, as facilitator, asked me to look around and see if other people were nearby. At the foot of my bed was a maid I didn’t recognize. However, when I looked-up to my right, a very tall woman was standing beside me. Though I understood her to be my mother in that lifetime, as I looked closely at her face, I was surprised to see it was my present day sister.

Next, Tariq asked me to look into the eyes of my child. To my astonishment, a familiar face suddenly projected out from the baby’s face. It was the adult face of an Aboriginal lawyer who’d become a dear friend of mine. In my book, Diamond Lantern: Waking-up to Who You Really Are, that same friend was my little brother when I was an Aboriginal shaman (or shall I say, sha-woman).

There have been a few times when everything about a person in a past life was crystal clear except their face was completely blank. Tariq once explained that faces are blank because I may not have met that person yet in this lifetime, or it’s not appropriate to know who they are at this time.

As part of my research, for months, I continued to go back to one lifetime in particular, where I belonged with a group of closely-knit people. Three faces were consistently clear as a bell. However, whenever Tariq asked who else in the group was in attendance, I found myself listing the names of people I couldn’t see.

One day, while deep in trance, I saw a man from the group that hadn’t been visible before. For months, his face and body had been complete blanks though his name came up in almost every past life regression with that same group. One day, I was amazed when I finally saw him clearly. He had a determined face, a long robe, and a red headdress that looked like three rolls of cloth stacked on top of each other.

Within a few weeks, I met this person in this present day time period. However, he was now a she! Though I didn’t mention anything about this particular past life that we’d lived together, the woman identified herself when she suddenly blurted out some ancient words that only I would understand. Puzzled, she asked, “What does that mean? Why did I say that?”

I almost fell off my chair, but knew I couldn’t tell her what it meant because she would never have believed me. Would you?

What I’ve learned is that we must each get there on our own steam. We must do our own work, our own exploration, and experience our own awakening. Though you can be nudged, someone else cannot do the work for you.

During a hypnosis class, a student that I was practicing with suddenly became aware of who she’d been in a past life, and also who I’d been. We’d been in the same lifetime together so I could see her past life as clearly as my own. We were both astonished and deeply moved because she’d been a spiritual leader. At the same time, I noticed her energy change. Her aura became filled with intense light. It was extraordinary to see. In that instant, she became radiant, likely when she became more connected with her own divinity.

It is a gift to witness someone awaken to who they really are and it’s extraordinary to watch. However, it shouldn’t be. It should be an everyday occurrence. We all have that same radiance within us because we are all divine. We simply need to connect with it more often. It takes work, self-exploration, healing and action to connect with who you really are – a divine spirit having a human experience.

Happy soul searching!
