Past Life Priestess

As I was looking at the journey of writing my first book, this is one of the past lives I saw. Yes, it was a life of seeing but also of persecution. However, there is no sadness or anger in my space around this memory. It was. And now I am. And all is well in my world.

Once I walked among the flowers.

I spoke to them, and

They answered me.

People came to me with questions

Small problems, preoccupations;

I heard them out.

I knelt beside the water,

And listened to what their spirits were saying.

I gave them back the words of their own wisdom,

Though they never believed that they themselves

Had spoken.

They cast their wisdom back at my feet

Like broken jars

That cut me

And I bled of it.

    Lovely. It is true that the wise listener allows the speaker to discover their own wisdom. Hugs, pat
