Introducing the Past Life Interview Series

 

Past Life Interview Series

In this powerful video series, I interview successful spiritual leaders who discuss their personal experiences with past life persecution, and how they were able to overcome a victim role and focus on self-empowerment.

We’ll be interviewing one spiritual professional each week, starting tomorrow.

But first…a story:

I was enjoying a sunny day at the Saturday market where I ran my Tarot booth, when a Raven haired woman approached.  She pointed at the tapestries hanging behind me, “I love those!”

We started making small talk about magic and I asked her how I could energetically protect my booth, because the old gypsy palm reader had been throwing me shade.

She gave me some good advice and then shook my hand.  Gasping, she pulled back and said, “You were an Oracle at Delphi!”

I was weirded out and intrigued at the same time.  No one had ever said anything like that to me before.  She gave me her card and we set up a time to talk more at her home.

I arrived at her place as the sun was setting and I felt like I was going to visit the village soothsayer…because I was.

Her home was decorated with hanging herbs and candles, and as she led me into the kitchen she said, “My mother always told me not to trust anyone who’s uncomfortable in your kitchen, because that’s the heart of your home.”

We sat at the dining room table and she started to invoke my spirit guide.  She told me he was a giant dude with a big gash on his face, that he seemed like a gladiator.  “He’s very protective of you – he’s hovering over you right now.”

She told me I had done him a favor in another life and that in this life he was happy to be my protector.

Then she started to talk about a few of my past lives.  “You’ve been a healer, you’ve been a healer, and you’ve been a healer, and then all of a sudden…they start to hate you for it.” 

She went on to describe how I went through all three inquisitions.  “The Spanish Inquisition was the worst….it was not good.”  I started to feel nauseous.

The nausea continued as I took the train home.  I started to feel dizzy and realized I was going to pass out.  I got off on the next stop, took a few deep breaths and walked home.

It took a while for me to integrate this strange information…I knew it was true.  It all made sense, the mistrust of others, not trusting myself, keeping my life private, getting anxiety and my throat closing up when doing readings.

I still wasn’t convinced, so I decided to consult some professional psychics and past life readers.  After 3 in a row telling me that I was burned as a witch without me telling them anything about myself; I was a little more convinced.

I was even more convinced when I started retrieving past life memories in my meditations.

At one point I saw men with dark beards wearing chain link armor marching in a row, and I got the feeling that I thought they were total dolts.  I did some research and found out that must have been during the crusades.

Another time I saw myself sitting in a living room weaving black thread through an embroidery hoop.  It looked like I had a nice fancy dress on and the living room was well decorated.

When I researched that, I found that there’s a specific kind of Spanish embroidery called blackwork that was popular in the 15th and 16th centuries.  This would be around the same time of the Spanish Inquisition which was established in the late 15th century.

After all this synchronicity, I couldn’t ignore it anymore.

I made a conscious choice to move through all the feelings I had about itgrief, anger, despair, hopelessness, abandonment, rage…which became a healing process that helped me remember what’s important to me.

I realized quickly that I was going to have to let go of the victim role & find a new way to feel empowered, otherwise there was no way I was going to be able to walk down a spiritual path in this life.

If I didn’t let go of my victim role, I would never find my true self, because our natural state is to be empowered. 

The biggest way I did this was to take what I learned from those lives, and focus on what desire it left me with…

To help people who have lost touch with their magic to stand in their true power & be unapologetic about their magic & not even feel like they must convince anyone that it’s real…

And to get people to realize that putting someone else’s beliefs of spirituality down doesn’t make your beliefs and spiritual experience any more legitimate or right.

To all the magical people who’ve experienced religious or spiritual persecution in this life or others, find out what it is that drives you to keep sharing your true self & focus on that.

Know that you are safe, and the world desperately needs & wants you here.

Weekly Reading May 2nd-8th

Happy Beltane!  This is a fiery time of year.  Our inner fires are being re-lit from the same fire that fuels all of life.  Celebrate!

This week, the card that guides us is Soul Retrieval, from the Isis Oracle deck.

“Deep Soul Healing with the Goddess”

We are going through powerful healing transformations.  Be delicate with yourself this week, as you are being brought more into wholeness.  You are discovering new parts of you and rediscovering forgotten parts of you, and integrating them into your life.

Self-care is also emphasized this week.  You’re not responsible for others’ happiness.  Everyone must strengthen their own energy fields.  So, take the time to meditate, cook yourself a nice meal, take a long bath, stretch, work out, make some art, do some gardening, etc.

The Divine Feminine is being reawakened and remembered right now.

The Holy Mother of All Life is in Everything.

The Goddess Isis is a High Priestess and Sovereign Queen of the One Holy Mother.  She wants you to know that she is always there for you, always supporting you, always on your side and hoping for your best.

Spiritual Professionals: Your Work is Important!

Picture

I want to thank you for all the work you do, and remind you that what you do is meaningful.  You may never know the true extent of how you help people, but I am here to remind you that what you do has a positive effect in the lives of the people that you work with.

Here is the story of the first time I got a reading from a spiritual professional, and how she made a lasting impact on my life:

I remember her clearly.  Her aura gave off the warm aroma of essential oils and she looked at you as though she could see right through to your soul.

She was mystical like the color purple, but she was also down to earth like rich soil.

She graciously invited me into her home and brought me to her reading area.  With the spark of a match she passed the smoke of Sage over me.  When she asked me why I was there, I gave an emotionally charged, frenetic response.  Her Taurean sobriety was comforting to me.

The first cards she pulled were Temperance and the 5 of Swords.

“It looks to me like you’re trying to make something work, but it isn’t quite working for you.”

Immediately what came to mind was my relationship with my husband.  I thought about all the conversations we’d had recently where it seemed impossible to reach any sort of mutual conclusion.  This was extremely frustrating to me, being that he was (and still is) my best friend, so I couldn’t talk about this to the person I would normally turn to.

She started describing to me the Queen of Swords, “…emotionally distant…seeks the highest truth…presents impossible tests of loyalty in relationships…high standards of perfection…”

I knew that she was describing my husband.   She was good.

Then came her description of the King of Wands,                                                             “aggressive…intolerant…headstrong…temper…dramatic…”

Holy crap.  That was me.

She just described the way we had been communicating with each other at the time.  How did she know this?

It was in the cards.  And man, did she know her cards. 

She did not mince words, she gave me tough love realness and told me exactly what I had to do to stop my pity party.   I’m not sure what I expected or wanted to hear that day, but she wasn’t going to give it to me.

What she did give to me, was what I actually needed to hear.  When I got home I was able to apply all the advice she gave me.  Our conversations became more well-rounded, and we were able to see things from each other’s perspectives.

Not only did she help me to see my relationship dynamics more clearly so that I could better communicate with my husband…

…but my first Tarot reading awoke within me the deep connection I have to the cards (and eventually other forms of divination) that spans across this and other lifetimes.

To the woman who showed me that it’s possible to forge your own path in the world, thank you.  You’ve shown me that:

“You can go your own way!”

She wasn’t the first, either, and she won’t be the last.  I’ve been so inspired by the immense wisdom held by the spiritual professionals who have helped me along my way.

So whether you are helping someone to navigate their close personal relationships, or get the nerve to pursue their passion with bold confidence, you are doing great work! 

Thank you for your commitment and courage to show up in the world in a way that is authentically spiritually aligned.   Thank you for being you, and offering your truth, your practicality and your realness!

You are helping to transform this world for the better. 

Love, Nora

Weekly Reading April 11th-17th

higherself.jpg

This week’s reading is a bit different.  I started receiving messages for the week as soon as I sat down to meditate beforehand.

The first was to remember that our existence is temporal.  Some souls remember being in a space of no-time, and no-thing, that it can be quite strange to be back in a body in a place and in a time.  In these cases, it can be helpful to remember that old phrase “this too shall pass”.

The next message was that you choose what you receive based on how you tune your instrument; the instrument being your body.

It was recommended for all of you highly spiritual beings who are attuned to the higher dimensions and/or planes to practice being grounded in your body.  Balance this non-attachment, supreme energy with still being in this world.

Pretend that you are playing “Earth”…

You can still be taking care of your Earth self, but when you are aligned with your Higher Self, you can do it in a way that unfolds as beautifully as you can imagine…

…because when you actively use your imagination to envision the best life possible; you will find that there are some outcomes you can’t predict because they depend on something else happening.

Instead of making this like running into a brick wall in your imagination process, follow your vision, keep going and think of all the different possibilitiesSee how far you can get without incorporating any “buts” or “what ifs”, or “I can’t do that” or “that won’t happen” or “that’s not possible” or “that would take a lot of work.”

Try to get to the point where you really believe in your vision and can’t wait to see how it comes true.

Then, ask this Divine Guidance to come through your whole body and be practically grounded in your day to day life.  That way, when you come back down to Earth, you will instinctively know what to do to cooperate with the universe to create your vision.

This means you need to be listening to your instincts on a day to day basis.  If your instinct is to take a certain action, or not to take any action at all and get some rest, listen.  In these moments, your instinct is working with your Higher Self to help answer your prayers to create your vision.

I hope this week’s reading will guide you throughout your week.

Meditation Invitation

Today let us elevate our consciousness for the benefit of all.

Envision yourself in a higher state of being where you are nothing but the strongest, brightest white light that you can imagine.  Imagine that the boundaries of your body and your mind dissolve and all you can feel is this white light flowing gently through you.

Some areas of your body might “light up” with pain, or you may feel your spine is compressed and wants to let loose, or it may even feel like anything that holds you together wants to let go.  That can be sort of shocking at first, but know that this light is perfect for you because it is the light of your own soul.  It is the perfect temperature, strength, intensity, and hue for what you need at this time to facilitate your highest healing.

If you feel any of these places “light up”, send the parts of you that feel really good and are easily absorbing the light to those places.  Talk to those places, which are the parts of you that need love and healing, and tell them that you love them.   If you listen, they might even give you some valuable information that you need to know.

Spend ten-twenty minutes bathing in this beautiful light, and give thanks to the light for your healing.  It is highly possible, however, that during this time you will perceive time very differently.  Rather than feeling time as a linear continuum, you will experience eternity.

As you do this, your healing will benefit the whole world.  The whole world will feel your love.  Thank you!
