Once I had a special ‘dream’ about a past life in Egypt. I have written about it in a previous post, but I am giving it here again: “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.”
At present there are many people who are on a spiritual path, of one kind or another, and who have memories of being in a mystery school in a past life. This can be in Egypt, but there were other mystery schools around the globe, like with the ancient Mayans, or small initiatory circles like the druids. Some even have memories of past lives in Atlantis.
Humanity has been for a long time, at least 12,000 years in spiritual darkness. During this period, the rulers of humanity have been, and still are, egocentric, sometimes to the extreme. They have kept their subjects, the common people, in spiritual ignorance. This has created a climate in which anybody who was spiritually awakened, or had spiritual/psychic abilities, or wanted to work for the good of humanity, was actively prevented from expressing their true nature. Some periods were better than others. In those periods mystery schools were erected to which these souls could turn. Once admitted they were living in a small and closed society that was totally supportive to the development of their spiritual talents and paths. In other words, if you were spiritually awakened you had a hard time when growing up in a spiritually repressed society, but you had the chance to join one of those initiation schools or circles. For the rest of your life you could live and work within that school of circle, sheltered from the destructive influence of common society, supported by like minded students, and educated by true spiritual masters. In difficult times the mystery schools had to disband, but the spiritual knowledge and practice was kept alive in an underground network.
Today, however, there are no mystery schools to turn to. If you are an awakened soul, you will grow up in an even more hostile environment. True spiritual information is actively repressed, and replaced with fake or distorted ‘new age’ information. Your yearning for spiritual knowledge and guidance lands you in the arms of self-proclaimed gurus, masters, and authorities, who gladly take your money and energy leading you to one disillusionment after another. Yes, it has become very difficult for spiritual people to pursue their path. Many will get lost in the darkness.
However these difficult times are also a unique opportunity for those who are strong willed, who keep believing in themselves, and who are lucid enough to avoid the numerous spiritual traps around them. Unless you are destined to meet a true spiritual master on your path, you will have to educate yourself this time. There is still good spiritual information available if you dig deep enough and learn to discriminate. The internet has made it possible to learn a lot in very little time. It also allows you to connect with other like minded people all around the world. A truly unique situation. But above all you have to develop a strong sense of you inner guidance, your inner feeling, of what to do, where to go, with whom to connect, and what your task is in this lifetime. Being true to your self is really key here. You can listen to what other people have to say, or what you read, but always listen to your inner voice on how to proceed.
What you went through in your past life in a mystery school or circle was preparation for this life time, now that you are largely on your own, or connected with only a few like minded people. As you cannot join a mystery school anymore, you will have to live in a ego-centric and repressive society, you will have to pay your taxes, and deal with people who don’t want to hear about what you have to say. You have to stay in your center and continue your spiritual education or path from the inside out. Believe in your yourself and go the path that corresponds to your true nature.
