The lesson I am writing about occurred when I was getting a hot stone massage in a ski village high up in the Rocky Mountains. The woman involved, a massage therapist, imparted a powerful lesson about being fully present and grounded in this lifetime.
At times, as some of you do, I get intrusive awarenesses about other people and situations even when minding my own energetic business. I try to reserve my insight for those who patently ask for it. These more random moments happen because I operate out of clair-senses and intuition a lot of the time now. This was one of those times that incoming information was not particularly convenient but the information persisted.
As I laid there with moderately heavy and deliciously hot stones on my body in the dim, aromatic therapy room I became aware of a male Native American figure standing around us. He told me that he was ‘her’. More specifically he told me that the work she was doing on my body was his work. It was ‘him’ who was conducting the session through her.
I found that detail interesting but had no desire to pipe up and say anything. Usually I am a fairly quite client on the treatment table. He then told me specifically that he, this ‘aspect’ of her was ‘Paiute’ (sounded like Pi-ute). I heard that and thought that perhaps I’d heard of them as a school child or somewhere along the way. I was not sure I had.
He gave me the strong sense that he wanted me to tell her this about herself. So, trusting the moment and setting, in the dim light, I spoke up. “Okay, in some of the work I do with clients I provide intuitive consultation and teach growth in consciousness.” Silence. “And I am being asked to tell you that you have a Paiute Indian hanging around you right now.” More silence.
Since I’d gone this far, I went for broke. “It seems that you know about past lives in general (my intuitive guess) so you can understand that he’s telling me that he is the reason you work as a massage therapist the way you do. I hope that makes sense to you somehow. Do you know of the Paiute?”
She replied that she was unsure if she knew this tribe specifically but she did feel close to Native American traditional healing. Then silence. Good. I felt I completed the mission and simply went back into my quiet mode, relieved of what I felt compelled to describe. He stopped talking to me but his presence lingered.
Here comes my lesson. Yours too. As is the ritual, the therapist left the room so I could dress and then meet her in the hallway for a glass of water and summary conversation. When I opened the door to the hall, there she stood, a tray with water in hand.
She volunteered that while she had not known the Paiute Tribe, she had worked over the years with the Lakota Tribe. I passed on to her that if she had any prompting she would very likely make a terrific modern Shaman given her experiences there. She confirmed that yes, she had previously been asked to consider Shamanistic work in the past, but has so far declined to do so.
She went on to explain that she does understand past life themes but that she “lives in this life today” and indicated that her journey as a soul now is to continue to negotiate this lifetime to the best of her ability.
I told her that I really honored her perspective and feel that many of our kind could take a lesson from her viewpoint. While we can discover our past life ‘roots’ and other amazing consciousness/spirituality-based attributes, what mattered most was being able to be grounded and present in this life.
As a further takeaway I realize that I was being shown how one individual could acknowledge an aspect of herself, accept it, and then understand how it was playing out in her life today. All with apparent nonchalance.
This example stood as mirror to so many humans in our wider collective who get lost, understandably so, in the particulars of their own hero’s journey. They fantasize, glamorize or otherwise fixate upon and act out these features to the detriment of their daily life requirements. I’ve seen plenty of this.
I bring this to your attention today because over the next 50 years you are going to watch as humans begin to expand from within who they know themselves to be. Some of the content will go beyond what is termed ‘past life’ into ‘future life’ and more. In fact ‘past’ and ‘future’ will morph into ‘aspects of you’ regardless of the time construct. You may already have some experiences in this zone.
What I hope you will do as you grow is make the decision to stay patently present in this life. Bring all the wisdom of awarenesses you are gaining to your current life. The human kingdom is growing in what can be considered an evolutionary way. You who read this type of material, mine and others, are those who came on the early side of this moment in human history.
As such, you will be greatly challenged to integrate what you are experiencing with what has to occur in your routine life. The beauty and power of the self you come to know will need to be commingled with the shadow and pain components lived in a duality defined third dimensional lifetime.
From this perspective I am more of a reporter and teacher. Indeed you are a master at this planetary and human change-time. You’ve done this all before. Thank you for what you do and who you are.
Always with my love, Amber
