Past Life Reading for B.J. 2016

*Kindly shared with client permission. The Astrology part of this reading is not included below.

B.J.'s Testimonial: "Like many people, I've always felt I had other lives and, in fact,  have several vaguely in my "memory." When Kathy did a past lives reading for me, I was curious if what she saw was anywhere near what I felt. It was pretty uncanny that she saw some very similar things such as my past geographical  location, my work and my education. Though centuries earlier, I was very surprised that those lives have informed my present life in such a positive way. It was very uplifting and I enjoyed the experience tremendously."

How a Past Life Reading Works: My preferred mode of intuitive reading is via distance. This allows me to focus on you, your spirit and your guides in a focused way clear of distractions. Your reading involves preparations such as meditation and yoga and I will often pull healing stones, runes and cards from my four self-designed and painted oracle card decks, but unlike a tarot reading I will not actually look at them until after your reading is finished. The cards, runes and healing stones are tools that will help you absorb your reading in practical ways and a resource list is provided at the end of your reading for further exploration.

A past life soul reading can help you gain a better understanding of who you are so that you can maximize your potential and natural abilities to the utmost of your ability. Real growth comes from understanding and transforming behavior patterns so that you can challenge yourself to develop in new and exciting ways based upon acknowledge of your past lives.

Please remember to look for the common threads in your reading so that you can benefit from lessons learned (or not learned) in past lives.  You are the final judge of what 'feels' right for you about this information, so go with your intuition first and foremost, because that is your best guide.

“We are the sum of all our activities throughout time, as well—the product of many lifetimes that are recorded as vibratory patterns of negative and positive expressions written on the skein of time and space. Through vibrations, we sow the seeds and reap the destinies of ourselves” ~ Edgar Cayce, Psychic

Past Life Reading for B.J.

Your Past Life Reading will take a look at two significant past lives based upon a psychic/soul reading of your past life energy.

Lifetime 1

The first thing I see in your reading is lots of green along with a fairy lady who appears and takes me by the hand saying "come".

In darkness you toil; planting hoping, wishing, envisioning Jack and the Magic Bean Stalk. Streams surround you and fish look upon you. You dream of living underwater and riding the fish like sea horses. Anything but here.

You are worn out as day breaks; face dirty as you stretch out for a nap.

Your farmer father appears, grim above you - blocking out the sun.

You know better than to make a sound as you are hauled to your feet and taken home. Surrounded by squalling brats you help out your mother; dreaming, dreaming of your get-a-way.

I see you later; hair strawberry golden blond and riding a bike.

Your name is Delia and this is Ireland in the 1850's - 1870's.

You escape to Dublin and scrub floors for a while looking with envy at the fine clothed gentlemen and smart ladies of learning with their small wire rimmed glasses.

You learn to read and save your money. It is a scrabbling, hard life but you have a head full of dreams and possibilities.

You catch a boat(?) to England (North Yorkshire) and take elocution lessons and turn yourself into a respectable lady.

You learn fast and work in a dress shop selling to fine ladies.

You study in your spare time and eventually head to London where you take some classes and continue to work in clothing stores; but this time in a large department store. Your smarts and efficiency propel you up the ladder to manager. Soon you have enough put away to study full time and you don university garb and dive in completely to this world.

As an older student you keep away from the shenanigans and pranks of your younger classmates and fall in love with a studious bespectacled young man studying philosophy and history.

The two of you move in together. You graduate, having studied a wide variety of subjects and take a senior executive position at another department store.

You have two children; a boy and a girl. Your son becomes a farmer and your daughter marries well and is creative (blacksmithing takes her fancy!)

Your life is refreshingly simple, straight-forward and undramatic; just how you like it.

Lefty Oracle Card Guidance - Delia Speaks to you in your present life: Gabriel & the Golden Bird

We would be best friends if we met now and have a mutual admiration party.

I have to ask: what are you seeking in this reading? Validation or the unexpected?

We are equally accomplished!

A Future Card (to see into your life now): Aquarius Goddess - Ix Chel

I sense your trip and as you know the Spanish culture surrounds you finding it's way into the chinks in your armor so to speak. Allow this to happen, allow your defenses to come down and your emotions out. THIS is strength; something you CAN do and that you have been given an opportunity to do - take it.

Aquarius teaches us about independence, detachment and individuality.
Ix Chel: Among the Maya of the Yucatan peninsula, this was the name of the snake-goddess of water and the moon, of childbirth and weaving.  This night-riding goddess spent her energies in nursing the women of earth through pregnancy and labor, taking special care of those who visited her sacred island of Cozumel.

Herbal Advice Along the Way: Columbine Fairy

I see sunshine, light, joy. A release. A bright penny - a symbol.

Make a Mojo Bag along the way; a collection of talismans to guide, protect and celebrate this journey. Bless them. Bless yourself. Bless the Divine.

Healing: Columbine also known as “lion’s herb,” is used to attract courage and true love or to retrieve a lost lover. 

Lifetimes Glimpsed But Not Explored:

  • Tall, Ichabod Crane type figure on a horse in a Wuthering Heights landscape
  • Hrossey (Norse) - a buxom blonde Viking Woman
  • Metal scraps fashioned into flowers

Lifetime 2

I see a little Indian boy who knew Siddhartha - a rag tag follower along his journey. He is you. You have very pale skin for an Indian.

The landscape is barren desert. You belong to a nomadic tribe located in the middle ground. You knew elephants, tigers, boas.

Now the landscape changes to the Middle East and you follow Christ.

Your devotion grows. You are a common man, dirt poor, tribal. A gypsy! I see bears.

But you are the quiet one; often left with the girls.

Your fingers crafty; working with rope and string - knots and weaving intricate labyrinths. You are a wise soul for a young boy.

Your name is Raja and your family are scrap collectors and sellers. But your heart sings to prayer rather than money.

So, you have this family, this lifestyle and join a convent, monastery, walled enclosure in India and sit motionless for days meditating and filled with deep peace. Your head filled with the sound of bells and prayer-song and devotion and doves. You are home.

You teach, you pray, you tend the gardens and die peacefully of old old age buried at the temple close to where you first encountered Siddhartha (South India, Lahore?)

At your funeral beautiful yellow flowers (like plumeria) rained down upon your body - your last wish-vision complete.

Raja Speaks to Your Present Self Now and Lefty Card: Jolene Missing the Embarrassment Gene

Selfish, self-less - a fine line we dance.

Your soul yearns for freedom; like the butterfly caught in a net (society).

You must fly free.
You must dance with the heavens.
You must know peace within.

You are blessed.
Teach this.
Spread this.

A Goddess Power Card to See Where More Strength Can Be Drawn Upon: Virgo Goddess

Going within - finding your way - the deep quiet and solace of a garden and a song, the music of devotion.

You walk the right path. Collect a song along the way and sing it as you walk.

Virgo is all about healing (quiet time), service and crafting (a song)
Virgo helps us turn inward to investigate the health of our bodies, minds and systems, deciding what seeds to harvest and what to compost. Virgo knows how to harvest great ideas and turn them into something useful and nourishing.

Stone Guidance: Tiger's Eye

Earthy, golden, simple pleasures.

Practice by creating a song for Tiger's Eye (wear it, hold it, carry it) so that on your upcoming walk you'll be tuned up and ready to create a journey-song.

About Tiger’s Eye: This stone carries the frequency of creation – of sunlight upon soil. This stone helps allow one to make choices based upon discernment, not judgement, in accordance with one’s higher guidance. It also helps create harmony as well as being a blood fortifier.
Affirmation: I act with confidence, clarity, balance, fairness, enthusiasm and strength.

To end your reading I surround you with love, healing and radiance.

Oracle Card Summary

  • Delia Speaks: Gabriel & the Golden Bird - We are golden.
  • Future Card: Aquarius Goddess-Ix Chel - Seeking breakthroughs.
  • Healing Card: Columbine Fairy - Gentleness.
  • Raja Speaks: Jolene missing the embarrassment gene - Don't fear the inevitable - be free.
  • Strength Card: Virgo Goddess - Service, healing, quiet time, crafting (a song).

Spirit Guide Reading for Sandi

How a Spirit Guide Reading works: Spirit Guides are wise teachers and guardians from another dimension that advise and protect us. They are dis-incarnate spirits (ie. animal totems, angels, nature spirits) that can act as spiritual counselors or protectors for us, during our time of need. I will also provide you with suggestions and techniques for connecting to your guides on your own.

My preferred mode of intuitive reading is via distance. This allows me to focus on you, your spirit and your guides in a focused way clear of distractions. Your reading involves preparations such as meditation and yoga and I will often pull healing stones, runes and cards from my four self-designed and painted oracle card decks, but unlike a tarot reading I will not actually look at them until after your reading is finished. The cards, runes and healing stones are tools that will help you absorb your reading in practical ways.

Yellow Calcite Point
Yellow Calcite Point

To begin your reading I surround us with a sphere of Yellow Calcite.

Then a fairy calls out; a practical fairy – the five senses are important to you.

Encelia Fairy by Kathy Crabbe
Encelia Fairy by Kathy Crabbe

Fairy Herbal Guidance: Encelia Fairy

Your energy state right now is Questing.

Encelia (also historically known as Copal Encelia) was commonly burned as incense in Northern Mexico. The act of burning Copal along with the accompanying holy language brings about two aspects of the Mayan world view; firstly the smoke creates connections with deities and ancestors and secondly it initiates a series of transformative processes that characterize the Mayan religious and cosmologic beliefs.  Copal is symbolically  perceived to be the same as blood, a sacred substance that is also considered to be an effective medicine for many illnesses. Copal is the ‘food of the gods’ since gods do not eat as mortals do, but instead gain sustenance from the smoke of the incense. In Mexico Copal is often added to love and purification incenses.

Guinevere appears next with long blonde locks…your energy is also attuned to ancient fairytales and Celtic lore.

We hold hands (on an energetic level) so I can read your energy.

I sense again your grounded-ness.

Brandberg Enhydro
Brandberg Enhydro

To call upon your Spirit Guides I get some help from a lovely crystal called a Rose Brandberg Enhydro Harlequin Dow.

Your Guides are a bit shy at first; it takes some time for them to show themselves.

One is Welsh and tiny requiring silence and patience to show up. This being has small moth wings and carries a glimmering Fairy Essence and loves you so dearly. She is dark haired and her name sounds like Estela.  She comes to your shoulder then hovers around you giving advice about food, relationships and subject matter you’re currently discussing…’aprons’!

She has a sense of humour, is playful and jokingly says, “Watch your back HAHA”. She even pokes you occasionally to alert you or wake you up to certain things.

Next, a giant appears (compared to Estela) with horns. He is a warrior god and a protector, but very gentle, not aggressive. “Just call me ‘Green Man’”.

And then a motherly figure appears in a white and yellow ruffled apron by the name of Martha. She helps to calm you and to keep you from jumping into anything too hastily.

You will not usually be aware of her because she stays in the background (possibly she is an ancestor).

“Have fun” she says and directs me to pull a Creative Soul Card for you.

Creative Soul Card Guidance: Gloria

Gloria by Kathy Crabbe
Gloria by Kathy Crabbe

Stick with it is the advice I get. Finances? It will work out.

Martha calls the Green Man ‘Jack’ and nods to him for more ‘challenging’ info to share with you so I pull a tarot card from my Greenwood deck.

Tarot Wisdom ~ Page of Stones ~ the Wren: New possibilities requiring money and security risks. Who is bringing you financial info? Affirmation: I trust in the information my body gives me and am learning to hear how it speaks to me.

Fairy Estela did not lie when she said ‘watch your back’.  it’s time to tie up loose ends. Don’t let anyone stop you from your task (your work) and your mission. “Like who”, I can hear you ask.  I see a friend; tall and dressed in pale yellow with long, straight blonde hair.  She can be a ‘downer’ and not helpful for your growth.

Estela says that you shine in these areas:

  • Healing
  • Working hands-on with clients
  • Attracting new clients

And she says quietly….pssssst…’Jack is a worrywart!’

I also hear you asking: “What can I do to improve?”

Is there a Kevin in your life?

He is a grounding influence.

How about ‘Star Baths?’

Your Guides are also aware of over-saturating you with too much information!

So, to get down to the essence, the moonlit elixir of clarity we meet your next Guide.

His name is ‘Michael’ and he is a professional type who appears in a brown suit.

Next, all of your Guides gather in a circle (btw, Jack doesn’t approve of Michael).

Martha sets down the bowl that she is drying in the center of the circle and it sings (a singing bowl).

You just relax and listen and float in the sound waves; a place you very much like to be; very healing.

Around you is a circle of support ~ in the real world ~ people in businesses like yours ~ also brick and mortar places of healing.

It will happen…(but when?)

Carla has heart by Kathy Crabbe
Carla has heart by Kathy Crabbe

Creative Soul Guidance: Carla has heart

Things will fall into place (almost effortlessly). Stand your ground and continue to facilitate positive action and thought and feel (envision) the fecundity of this, as if preparing to give birth. Journal this vision regularly ~ create it within. So Be It.

To end your reading Sandi, I surround you with peace, love and understanding.


Sandi’s Comments: 

Thanks again for this reading. It's funny, I have read it over and over and each time I find something different popping out at me.

First, i want to say I love the way you put this together. I, to date, have not met my own guides/angels and so to read about them is super fun! If you have any creative advise on how I can connect with them, I am all ears. I have tried to meditate, but unfortunately, my mind is "ON" all the time. I am surprised I am able to fall asleep at night. I can quiet it down for short periods and lord knows I try daily.

Estella was right on the money with Healing, working hands on w/ clients and attracting new clients.

"Star Baths"? Not sure, although it could be this online class I am taking about Moon Phases and part of that is a bathing ritual. Could be, huh?

LOVE Sound Therapy healing!!! I have been to a few sessions with bowls. Beautiful!

Would love to know if you have any additional insight on these few things.

Thanks so much again for such a rewarding experience.

With Love & Light, Sandi Meegan (Portland, CT, Reiki Practitioner)

Jen's Soul Reading & Her Comments

I just wanted to let you know that after receiving the reading, something sort of clicked and I have been really happy to feel as though I not only can, but need to pause every day to make sure I am not losing myself in tasks that will never be completed. Jen SwansonI think the greatest gift of the reading though, was the feeling that I am growing from one phase of my life into another. It's a process to let go of the need to make myself feel worthy by accomplishing any number of things I set up for myself but I have, on the whole, felt as though it's getting easier and easier. I have also taken to heart the notion of seeing myself as a joyful person instead of just as a responsible person and it's getting easier to do that as well.

I was happy to see that my bookmark was "Jonie, perpetual daisy dreamer" because shortly after I got this reading I pulled out my art journal for the first time in months and made a "dreaming" page :)

A 1 Question Soul Reading for Jennifer Swanson, June, 2010

*reprinted with kind permission from Jen.

How a Soul Reading Works:

My preferred mode of reading someone's soul-energy is via distance - this allows me to focus on you, your spirit and your guides in a focused way clear of distractions. Each reading involves preparations such as meditation and yoga to help me focus. I will often pull healing stones and a card(s) from one of my four self-designed and painted oracle card decks, but unlike a tarot reading I will not actually look at the card until after your reading is finished. The card imagery and description often serve to accentuate and emphasize certain points in your reading and along with the healing stones may also give you some more tools to work with on your own after the reading is over.

This reading is in response to Jen's question:

How can I start seeing myself as worthwhile because of who I am, not how much I get done?

The very first thing I am drawn to for your reading is an unusual gemstone called Nuumite. This stone instructs me to create a lovely cocoon for you – a place to rest, recharge and rejuvenate – a sacred cave that you can visualize any time you want.

Nuumite can help one to bravely and honestly face the shadow self and find Love in one’s heart for those aspects of self that one has denied, vilified or ignored.

Affirmation: I willingly go into the depths of myself to heal and recover what has been lost, and I achieve self-mastery in so doing.

It’s like you’re constantly weighing out the balance of things and taking a count… ie. this is worth so much and this so much, and so on. It’s like a laundry list (I smell soap!)

But what about joy? The fun heart? The light-hearted you?

For some insight I pull a card from my Lefty Oracle deck and it is called “To dither or not to dither, that is the question."

You allow your workload to bury the joyful, fun, light-hearted part of you.

I suggest working with a lovely starry, blue stone called Lapis Lazuli (or with an image of this stone, more about how to do this is included at the end of your reading) to help you see the bigger picture and to access your Goddess-self.

Lapis Lazuli helps to purge or cleanse souls of a past that is no longer necessary. You are getting prepared for a period of growth and an enhanced understanding of your path and purpose here. You may need to do some soul searching right now.

In ancient Egypt, the deep blue cobalt color of Lapis was revered as a messenger from the heavens. The gold flecks were like the stars in the night-time sky and were regarded as touchstones for truth and light. Lapis draws the mind inward to seek its own source of power, it penetrates rather than heals. Lapis represents going through your own darkness and illusion and your own subconscious, to truly identify with your Goddess Self and it’s flecks of gold symbolize the wisdom that is achieved upon completing this process.

It will not be difficult for you to access higher realms and your higher purpose because you are someone who can do pretty much whatever you set your mind to, right?!

Once you can acknowledge that your higher self, purpose and Joy Self exists then you are ready to access this side of yourself in the best way possible. (This is the first step, now on to the second step.)

To help inspire you I pull a card from my Goddess Zodiac deck and it is called “Aquarius Goddess.”

Aquarius teaches us about independence, detachment and individuality.

Aquarian Challenge: Your purpose is to see the patterns of ideas, networks and human relations. Your challenge is to know what you feel and to build intimacy and collectivity. Although you may need to learn tact, Aquarius offers you a natural political knack, a tribal consciousness and an abstract, iconoclastic soul.

How to get inspired?

By letting go and releasing into a free flowing, natural way of being – not difficult at all. With this release comes an acceptance of your higher purpose.

Just one glimpse and one step into this realm (that is all within you) will shape your vision forever and you can never go back to the old way of being, the way of feeling inferior and overworked and over burdened with too much to do.

You will let go and allow what is heart and soul-important to take precedence - a new you is born within the seeds of the old you.

Pick a good book, filled with inspiration to keep by your side and also a small journal for love – love of you. Be kind to yourself.

I pull another card just for you and it is called “Jonie, perpetual daisy dreamer."

Every way is the right way, because it’s all within you.

Oracle Card Summary:

You tend to get buried in the little things. Aquarius is asking you to expand your horizons in every way possible and to see beyond the mundane world.

Jonie dreams and so too can you, you just need permission and that must come from within.

I’m ending your reading by surrounding you with love, a pure heart, faith and angelic helpers – a whole chorus, to sing you on.
