Once I had a special dream. It was in full color and in detail. My normal dreams are always without colors and fuzzy. It started out with a scene in my bedroom, seeing three witches (in the positive sense) sitting on my bed. The middle witch represented myself (this is symbolic of my anima, my soul or energy-self). Focusing on her shifted my awareness and I saw myself as a priestess in ancient Egypt. It was a rather unusual dream as it was different than what I would have expected it, based on my book knowledge of ancient Egypt. Before me was a sarcophagus with the dead pharaoh in it. There were a couple of priesthood members to the right of me. To the left of me was the god Thoth (with ibis head), who was much taller than me, and from whom I was channeling energy through myself towards the dead body of the pharaoh. It was intended to vivify the astral body of the pharaoh, in order for him to wake up and be active in the afterlife.
Up to the day I had this dream, I had never considered that I could have been a woman in past lives. You might doubt that this was a memory of a past life because of the presence of a god. However you have to understand that priestesses were often trained to develop second sight, and to manipulate energies. Mankind always had contact and relationships with non-human beings of many kinds. What I originally did not understand was what Thoth had to do with this ritual. I always understood that Thoth was the god of sciences, writing, intelligence and the mind, and the judge of the dead. The practices of the Egyptian priesthood were seldom or not at all put into writing, so there is a lot that we don’t know.
