Had a great time recently at a Past Life Party two friends of mine gave. What a treat and a trip to see so many folk dressed up so creatively. I think I reported in a previous blog that I went as Genghis Khan – had to figure out what Genghis would have worn in the summer, ’cause I was for sure not going in boots and a heavy coat.
As a party game, they assembled an assortment of mostly tiny objects, printed out a numbered list for us to fill in, and turned us loose to use our psychometry skills to figure out what each object was. Traditionally, psychometry is about holding something in your hand – a piece of jewelry, an old coat, almost anything – and getting impressions about the object’s previous owner(s). There are folk who can do this almost down to the color of the fingernail polish of the original wearer of the ring or brooch.
I have never been particularly gifted at that, but gave it a go. As usual, I did not get any visions or pictures. But I found I was getting energy. So I just started making notes about that beside each of the numbers.
One piece was puzzling. The energy was very neutral and mechanical. Turned out it was a piece of type. I wasn’t sure what it was until its owner picked it up – then ‘type’ leaped into my mind. With another item, I felt sadness, a very withdrawn energy – a recluse as it turned out. Anger and grief came from an item found at a house that had been subject to an Indian attack many, many years ago.
So it was a lot of fun. And, as is normally the case, my gifts do not go along the normal route, but take their own independent way. Surprised?
