Years ago, I worked as a clerk in a nursery/landscaping company, and my co-worker was an awesome woman. She and her sister, a local school teacher, belonged to a group called Astro-Soul. Listening to my friend talk about the training sessions and their goals for assisting lost spirits fascinated me--so much so that I agreed to attend a "healing."
I'm not sure what I expected, but I did know that both Pat and her sister were upstanding members of the community and I trusted them. I'd worked with Pat for over a year and knew her quite well...her speech, her mannerisms. I think because of my exposure to scary TV shows, I believed I would walk into a dark room with a crystal ball and get immediate goosebumps. The opposite was what I found. The "healing" was held in a friend's house--in a light and cheery living room where a card table and four chairs sat in the middle. In the center of the table was a simple crystal bowl filled with water.
Before I relay my experience further, let me tell you that Astro-Soul is still a viable organization. My interaction happened over thirty years ago, and it wasn't until a gifted friend shared her website with me, that I remembered my "healing" as though it were yesterday. As proof that the good work still goes on, I found this on their Internet site, listed as their goals:
|Understand the relevance of Past Lifetimes to this Lifetime|
|Unfold a deeper working relationship with your Spirit Guides|
|Develop your metaphysical sensitivity|
|Participate in in-depth healing sessions|
My understanding is the members undergo training sessions that allow them to relax into a trance state, thus inviting a spirit to use their body for communication purposes. Okay...so I was skeptical. First, I couldn't image inviting a spirit to share my body, and I wasn't even sure I believed in "ghosts." But that wasn't my function at this meeting. Through the process I was to determine just how many "people" actually came to the meeting in my car although I declared I came alone. *smile*
At the beginning of the session, our hostess explained that though we may not see or hear the spirits that cling to us for various reasons, they are drawn to us because we represent someone familiar and provide comfort. We all consist of "energy" and this is what a spirit represents--an energetic field that can drain our own. That made sense. I walk around feeling drained all the time, so by that theory alone, I must have a bunch of "clinger-oners."
I watched a few healings take place, where a guest sat at the table with two trained Astro-Soul members. The guest was asked to place their hands over the water while one of the members served as interpreter and the other, a receptor. (These are my terms...not the organizations...in my attempt to explain what I perceived.) I was engrossed in what I witnessed, but it was hard to make a connection without being a participant and relating the results to my own experiences. So, I paid the nominal fee. (Yes, they do charge because the money goes back into the organization to continue the ability to enlighten others.)
What happened was amazing and made me a believer. Of course, you're going to have to wait until tomorrow because this blog is running way too long to keep a reader's interest, and if I've learned anything about being an author, it's always leave a hook.
I invite you back tomorrow when I share what I found out about my past lives.
