Focus Friday - Past Life Recall
- My first memory of a previous lifetime came to me in a "flash" in the middle of the night several years ago. I had been experiencing pelvic and low back pain for several days and sleep did not come easy. What little sleep I did get was fitful. After several hours of tossing and turning I got up to go to the bathroom.
When I returned to the bedroom, rather than laying down right away, I sat on the edge of the mattress. I just sat there in the dark with my hands in my lap for awhile wishing my back would stop hurting so much. I was certainly not in my comfort zone.
I glanced downwards and noticed my hands were different, they looked aged and worn. They were not the hands of a young woman in her twenties (my age at the time). After examining my hands more closely and feeling oddly out-of-body I observed more oddities. I was wearing a gray button-down dress draped loosely over a foreign body that was uncomfortably bloated in its midsection. Not my hands! Not my body! This not-me body was also wearing a heavy pair of scuffed and badly worn work boots on her feet. I felt very confused.
Then, in a flash, I was on my knees scrubbing a stairwell. I instinctively realized I was a maid or servant who had her work cut out for her. Apparently I was in someone else's body, no, not someone else's body, but as ME in another time period.
As soon as I came to the realization what I was experiencing I was yanked "back" to my self, or rather, back to the current body my spirit is housed in. I found myself once again sitting on the edge of the bed but in my current more familiar body.
I laid down and wondered about the scrub woman (this other me) for a bit and wished I had been able to see her (my) face. It wasn't long before I fell into a restful sleep and later awoke feeling much better and GRATEFUL that my life this time around is not as harsh or troubling.

(colors and light) envelope our physical bodies are enveloped by our auras (colors and light). Some people are able to see auras plain as the nose on your face. Others only get a glimpse of an aura around someone now and again. I don't know why we are so surprised or delighted when this happens. These glimpses serve as a reminder that we are first and foremost spiritual beings. Our physical bodies are secondary to who we are. To live on this planet not only is it fashionable to have a human cloak, being connected to a body is a necessity to having a human experience. That's the whole point of being here, to experience challenges and joys of being human in order to evolve spiritually
It can be even more surprising to see (or sense) a light (orb, beam, light flash, or human shape) without a manifested form. When this occurs you are likely encountering an angel, spirit guide, or ascended master. Eileen Smith, Ask An Angel columnist, says that she associates certain light colors with the archangels, blue for Archangel Michael and yellow for Archangel Gabriel...etc. (See Colors and the Archangels).
