Through Past Life Regression, this man saw himself leading a community of families on horseback to a safer place. He was unable to communicate as to the reason that they were feeling unsafe in their original location, but there was a feeling of urgency - that they must leave there soon. He was the leader of this community, although it was not clear as to whether he was a spiritual leader or a secular leader, but he did feel that the others in his community respected him and looked to him for guidance. There were four or five other men in this group who he conferred with when making a decision. They made slow but steady progress, because there were children in their group, and the pace allowed for even the slowest rider to stay with the group. At nightfall they stopped and slept under make shift shelters in a meadow setting. There was a campfire, they shared whatever food they had been able to bring, and my client and the men he trusted planned into the night. It was in the 1500's and the language spoken was English, although he couldn't be sure where he was. There were high mountains, running water and the weather was pleasant, although he noted that in the winter they could expect snow. Eventually they found a local in which to settle, and the men set about building 4 small cabins which they would stay in until they could build a cabin for each family. My client was again in a position of leadership, overseeing the building and helping out where help was needed. This was a community of farmers, and using horse pulled plows, they were able to put seed in the ground for a crop which could be harvested before the snow fell. After experiencing all of this life that he needed to see, I took my client to the time of his death. He was old, lying in bed feeling tired, weak, and ready for the end of this life. Although many in his original group had passed already, there were men at his bedside and he could hear women in an adjacent room. There was much sadness among these people upon his death, as he was still very well respected. It seemed that he never married.
After leaving his body he was able to view his mourners by the bedside, although his soul did not linger long. He felt himself traveling up, at first seeing earth from a great distance and then passing heavenly bodies as though passing through the cosmos. Upon reaching his spiritual home, he was greeted by a large group of souls who he felt he knew but could not name. There were upwards of 200 souls gathered at a joyous celebration, and he quickly realized that he was the guest of honor. He was being congratulated and many souls remarked that he "did it", although we never learned what this accomplishment was exactly. He was so thrilled and felt so much love and joy at this reunion that he soaked up the experience before returning to his normal consciousness and deciding to return for a Life Between Lifes session at a later date.
This young woman found herself in a military uniform during WWII. Upon further questioning, we learn her name is Gertrude and she is standing next to a military vehicle. She feels horror and remorse as she contemplates her life and we find her at a young age, in large part due to the demands and emotional turmoil brought on by her part in the war.
Upon her death, she returns very quickly to her spiritual home, having no desire to linger on Earth. She is immediately taken to a place of healing where a refreshing liquid rains on her as if she were showering in healing energy. It is a pleasant, calming experience and it seems to her that she stays in this place of healing for years.
After her energy has been restored and she is feeling refreshed, she is taken to a picnic setting, which turns out to be her meeting with the council of Elders, who appear on a raised dias. She does not feel condemnation or judgement from this council, but a loving review of her life, during which there is much exchange of thoughts. The Elder in the center of the dias, who appears as an older white man, seems to be in charge of the proceedings. It is at this point that something odd occurs. I, Haven, see a pendant worn by this man. I ask my client if any of the Council members is wearing a pendant and she replies that yes, the man in the middle is wearing a pendant. I asked my client if she can describe the pendant because I'm curious to know if it's the same pendant that I'm seeing. I must admit that I was a bit taken back when her description matched completely with the image I was seeing. Dependent seemed to be amazed which led from the outside to the inside with many paths. I asked my client if it meant anything to her and she said that she was being shown but there were many ways to reach her goals, but that some would be longer and harder than others.
After the council meeting she was taken to meet her soul members many of whom she recognized both from this life and from her previous life. Among them were family members and she was overjoyed with the reunion.
Soon it came time to choose her next body and her next life. She was given a number of bodies to choose from. Among them were a woman from India, a black African American, and a white male. In the end she was torn between the Indian woman and the black African American but she felt as a black African American woman, she would be in the position learning more about the world and would have the opportunity to become a true world citizen. This is the body and the life she is now living. It was an honor to accompany her on this journey and although she's young in this life, I believe that she is an old soul.
This client was frustrated upon experiencing his past life during the American Revolutionary period because he simply couldn't move. It took some time before he realized that he had lost his arms in the war and was a paraplegic, or possibly even a quadriplegic. He described what may have been a post revolutionary war city in the Northeast, possibly Boston. His name was Joseph and the only other person who appeared in his recollection was a woman named Mary who had a long braid down her back. His impression was that Mary was his sister, and it appeared that she was his sole caregiver. As Joseph, my client reported seeing a stagecoach and being conveyed on a buck board, with Mary leading the horses while simultaneously keeping a close watch on him. Joseph led a joyless life, being dependent on Mary for most of his needs. He never married and he described himself as stoic, bearing up under his disability with a quiet acceptance.
At the time of his death, Joseph saw himself in a wrought iron bed being tended to by Mary. After his soul left his body, he seemed confused and did not appear to realize that he was now free to move unrestrained by the injuries sustained in his life as Joseph. Eventually he did find himself in a tunnel moving hesitantly towards the spirit realm. Once there, Joseph saw the gateway and was able to watch the souls coming in and out of the initial hub, a feature which appears in many Life Between Lives sessions. Again, Joseph felt immobile and unsure as he watched the flow of souls. Eventually he spotted a cherub featured being in line to enter the hub of light beckoning him to join him in line. At that point Joseph found that he was able to float over to this soul, whose name was telepathically communicated to him as Richard. Richard smiled, gestured and inserted an arm or leg into the wall of light, in an attempt to show Joseph that it was safe. Joseph, however fascinated by the process, was never able to make that leap of faith during this session to trust himself to move into the light. Eventually my client, feeling frustrated, asked to end the session, which we did. Nevertheless , he found the session to be highly impactful on his life and has scheduled a second session, hoping to fully enter his true home.
