A gypsy in a previous life

Well, that’s what the lady said. I was a gypsy in a previous life. Now come on, didn’t we all suspect that? :-)

Of course, I’m referring to the “energy reading” I had a while back. It was fascinating, very encouraging, and at times a little perplexing…like when she told me one of my animal spirits was a monkey. Uh huh. I see. Well as soon as I could, I looked up on the internet the implications of having a monkey as a spirit guide, and I learned that people with such a guide are playful, mischievous, social, and love playing practical jokes on their friends. OK, so-HO not me! I HATE practical jokes, I don’t think anyone would ever describe me as playful or mischievous, and as for being social, no word of a lie, I go DAYS without even leaving the house.

And I like it that way!

Danah explained that when her guides speak to her, she is occasionally unclear on what they’re trying to say, and she’ll translate it to the best of her ability. (A few times she asked me to define an unfamiliar word her guides had used.) But sometimes it’s a miss. I was all ready to deem the monkey a miss, but a few days later I came across a reference to “monkey mind”, the incessant chattering that goes on in our heads all day long, and how meditation can help quiet it. Perhaps the guides weren’t describing the monkey as a spiritual guide, but as a part of me that gets out of control and needs some reigning in. (Other sources lately have been encouraging me to meditate too.)

I also found out that the spirit guides like being around me. Well, how nice! And they view MY spirit as a flamenco dancer. Really? Yup. Vibrant, confident, I draw attention to myself not in an ego-driven way, but as a statement of personal power.

“I do?” I asked, charmed but bemused.

“Yes! Do you do anything in the line of performance?”

I thought for a second. “Well, I give readings, preach, and sing. I guess you could call all those ‘performance.’ But I wouldn’t think of myself as confident or flashy.”

She listened to the guides speak then asked, “What does ‘ostentatious’ mean?”

After I explained, she said, “Not flashy as in the sense of ostentatious, but when you perform…” she stood and did a few flamenco steps “you’re saying ‘Look at me! This is who I am! Take it or leave it.”

OK, now THAT is me!

She said that I’d been married many times in past lives, (interesting, since I came very close to not being married in this one) and that this time around I wanted marriage without children. “And,” she added, “you’re balancing it very well.”


Among other things she gave me some dietary suggestions, encouraged self-nurturing, urged me to examine my beliefs and indulge my wonderings. And she said I should surround myself with happy people. That I can do!

I went home elated! I felt buoyed up and happy. After all, it isn’t every day you learn the spirits like you. I like them too.

Except for the monkeys.
