8/28/10 Weddings and Death Rites
A woman comes to my office for a reading to decipher her life purpose. I sage both of us and the office, and place gemstones around her. We envision the pyramid and the grid with the red beams of light. I see her spirit tremble as we put the grid in place. She touches it with her fingers, and shivers as if she has received a shock.
Initially, attention is drawn to the feet. Henna drawings are painted on the soles of her feet, and she has gold ankle bracelets with tiny gemstone beads dangling from them, and toe rings. I am reminded of a recent divination when I saw a woman with henna patterns on her feet and forearms. The patterns floated about an inch away from her skin, and I sensed that they hold a powerful auric, energy field. She is in India in an elaborate costume. The top has short sleeves with her pierced belly exposed, and puffy pants. She flows in graceful movements doing beautiful mudras with her hands as she glides. The ceremony around her emerges. There is a procession with a float. She is sprinkling rose peddles as she dances around the float where a women sits wearing an elaborate headdress made of brightly colored fabrics and elaborate gold jewelry. It may be a wedding.
She then emerges in this room, continuing with the ritual. She wraps Ava in a thin, light blue fabric, covering her completely, like a “mummy.” She sprinkles rose petals as she dances and prays. At one point she asks about her name during this lifetime in India. A portion of the name emerges: Mina Sitta Swanam…. I am told that she must decipher the rest on her own through meditation.
Soon the lines drawn under her eyes become prominent. I have thoughts of Kemet. She then emerges in Kemet beside a corpse, participating in the death rites. She is sprinkling thin, white flower petals, corn, and herbs on the deceased, assisting with the preparation of the body. Others are present for the ceremony. I sense that the flower petals are for “sweetness,” the corn is for food, and the herbs are specific to the needs of the deceased. They are made from a special blend designed to balance out the weaknesses in the life that has just ended. Thus, she is a part of the process of transitioning into the next life.I sense that in the here and now, she would have a talent in working with herbs and flowers for to help other to heal.
I also sense that she was carved into one of the pyramids. She appears kneeling down with her palms out in front of her, sending energy.
After the reading she immediately states that she has always had a profound connection to the Hindu tradition. She said that she recently attended a Hindu ceremony; The Festival of Light, in Queens, and she took lots of pictures! I sensed that she must study the Hindu tradition; she must learn about the various rituals, such as rituals of purification. She must also study the dance, and the mudras, as well as the significance of the henna patterns. She appeared to be more drawn to the Hindu portion than to the Kemetic ritiual. Perhaps that will emerge more strongly at a future time. It is interesting to note that I also did a reading with another woman a few months ago, who was a high priest who presided over the death rites. And I recently learned that I myself played a role in these rituals. Tehuti recently explained that I participated the negotiation between the deceased and various other spirits to determine the person’s next incarnation. He explained that I am a portion of his soul.
