Psychic Readings and Past Lives
Years ago, my life path crossed and then paralleled with a woman who was a psychic. The meeting was by pure chance but the spark between us ignited like none other. We became intense lovers for two years. Then, one day, coming home from a ski trip, she declared it was over. She explained to me that she saw this even coming many months previously and that our affair was never meant to last and that our life paths met and stayed in synch for a purpose and now that purpose was resolved.
It was my first and last encounter with a psychic. During the two years we spent, she opened my eyes to many things and various theories I had never contemplated. She gave me readings frequently, and at first, I tried not to laugh for she was dead serious and in a trance. Weird. She would tell me about beings trying to attack my aura and chakras then she would cast some sort of spell to ward them off and create new aura. She had this intensity about her regarding her readings.
Every so often, she would read my future. Everything she saw has come to pass, whether it was about a job or our future as lovers. She had warned me months previously that our life paths would part and go in different directions, I scoffed at it. She told me that long after we would part events in my life would occur. They did.
As to past lives, she told me that my most recent life had been a German WW2 pilot that was shot down and killed. At that time, I was interested in learning German and had a keen interest in battles of WW2. She said a more distant part life had been a writer of some sort, perhaps a priest in the 1400's who would frequently write philosophy from atop hills. I have always excelled in writing and continue (I have three books published on military history topics) doing it but I also love and find peace from the top of hills or mountains as I gaze over valleys below. My life prior to that she told me was that of a Roman commander of a legion who led hundreds of men into battle. I was a leader that men loved for I cared for the underdog. Oddly, as a kid, we lived near Rome for three years as my dad was in the Army. I recall visiting all the Roman built buildings. I have always cared for the less fortunate and still have strong empathy for them. Lastly, she told me, and she tried not to giggle, my previous life to the Roman was that I was Alexander the Great. Even now, I grin as in, "give me a break". Yet, she was serious in this reading.
The common thread that ties my life today with the past lives are similar interests with them. They all involved military lives, leaders killed in combat. I have always had an innate interest in military things, whether they are battles, weapons, military history, writing, hiking to the top of hills etc.
I have no doubts about past lives. The only residue left from them are your core, driving interests in your life now and understanding how you got them. As to my former lover, I have not seen her since, but I will never forget her.
