In the middle of 2012, I ended up having a reading, and this took place at a shop that was about 9 miles away from where I lived. This was a time when I was looking for guidance, and this was partly because I had just left where I worked.
I ended up speaking to the owner of the shop before I had the reading and I we spoke afterwards, too. It then didn’t take long until I went in there again to speak to her, and I ended up going in there about once a week.
A few years after I first went in there, in December 2014, there was a time when I helped to move the furniture that was outside. I had done this on numerous occasions, but what stands out about this moment was that someone, who I hadn’t met before, came into the shop and spoke to me.
I found out that his name was Ian Baillie, and he commented on the trench coat that I was wearing. It soon became clear that this was someone who was into past lives.
I Wanted To Know More
After we spoke, we arranged to get together for a coffee, and this was a time when we both found out more about each other. Until this point, it wasn’t as if I someone who was really into past lives or anything.
However, I was open-minded and happy to hear more about what he had to say. One of the things he said was that I was a confederate general in a past life and he soon came up with other lives that I had had.
It Matched Up
Yet, while I wasn’t particularly into past lives, I had healed past life trauma many, many years ago. So, it wasn’t as though I being exposed to something I had never even heard of before.
What was different was that I hadn’t ever met anyone who had gone into the kind of lives that I had had before. But with this aside, he was someone who recognised my fiery and passionate nature.
Interestingly enough, this was a time in my life when I was just beginning to embrace my aggression. For most of my life I had been out of touch with this part of my nature, which was largely due to the fact that it wasn’t safe for me to get angry when I was younger.
I was starting to feel more comfortable with side of me, and here was someone who didn’t try to stop me from showing this side of my nature. As a result of this, I felt as though I could be myself.
More Than One Side
And as I got to know him, I came to see that this wasn’t someone who hair their head in the clouds. If someone had told me about someone who was into past lives, I would have probably wondered if they were out of touch with reality; yet, here was someone who had their feet firmly on the ground.
Along with his critical mind, he had a degree, and an incredible understanding of history. I felt incredibly grateful had I had come into contact with someone who I could be myself around and have deep conversation with about every area of life.
