FROM THE ETHERS
Have you ever ran into someone you know and have never met? This happens all the time. I’ve had clients come to my office in Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp that I’m sure I’ve met before. ‘You look familiar’ is what I say. And most times than not, they agree. Sometimes I say, ‘Or maybe I saw you in a dream, saw you coming for the reading. Heck, I’ve probably given the reading already.’ We laugh. I like to joke it off. It keeps the mood light. Maybe, it was a dream, but more than likely a past life recognition. Remember, everything is energy. We recognize what we know.
I love this story that I’m about to tell you. It’s about a very good friend, spiritual teacher. We loved and laughed about the story again today as she retold it for this column.
This happened in the Bookstore of the Spiritualist Camp, a place she worked many, many years ago. Now mind you she was married at the time and still is to the love of her life. But that one day in the Bookstore will never be forgotten. A Native-American man about 6’ 2” came into the store and my friend said, ‘You’re Crazy Horse.’ Gotta love that. She grabbed onto him and did not want to let him go. He was wearing a suit and tie. They agreed that neither knew one another. A friend nearby teased that she had lost her mind. The man who was now holding on to her said, ‘I felt something. You were shorter than me then too.’ He promptly got goosebumps and continued: ‘I can’t believe it was you. I always said I would find you this lifetime.’ He shared with her that he had driven past the Bookstore many times. He even stopped and sat on the porch several times. He never went in. Finally that day he decided to go in at closing time. They held each other for about 20 minutes and he went on his way.
That story is so amazing to me. Does this only happen in Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp? It’s kind of fun to think so. But I’m sure those who are awake have these experiences daily. One has to first realize what is truth? We’re on a planet suspended in a solar system. We must understand that we will meet people who are in our soul group. I know I’ve talked about this before. A soul group includes family, friends and once in a lifetime meetings. We make sacred contracts with those in our soul group to help us learn life lessons, so we are able to evolve. There could be 10s of thousands of people in a soul group. Even though we have sacred contracts with people in our soul group before we incarnate, those contracts do not have to be fulfilled. It’s all about freewill on this earth plane. But isn’t it great to meet someone from a past life. Blessings!
