Who is the Most Interesting ‘Past Life’ Person you have met this month and why?
Thank you to Lovely Beverly for this question!
I’ve met a couple of delightful past life characters during the last couple of weeks but the one who stands out the most is “Beatrice Margaret”. It seems like she just appears around me, at the oddest of moments, all the time. Since connecting with the Ear Trumpet and discovering ‘Beatrice’ was holding it, I have learned a lot about this formidable woman. In fact, there appears to be a direct connection with another past life self, “Mariette”, who lived around the same time but on another continent.
Both women were strong and intelligent and definitely living in the ‘wrong’ century! I think that it was a little easier, in some ways, for ‘Beatrice’ because she was a ‘difficult’ woman. Her hearing challenges meant that she missed a lot of nuances of conversation and was ‘uneducated’ in a lot of the courtesies of the times because her hearing was damaged as a child. I know her nieces and nephews kept their distance as much as possible because of Beatrice’s inconsistent, and often volatile, behaviour. But, as I have been ‘hanging out’ with Beatrice quite a bit I realise that she is really a diamond in the rough. She spoke her truth, as she saw it, and ‘being mindful’ of other people’s perceptions was pretty much beyond her awareness (or interest). So, even though my first description of her was “a bitter spinster”, I have actually developed quite a fondness for Beatrice.
Having explored the ‘I can’t hear you’ issue and met “Beatrice Margaret” I then ‘looked’ into her life to see what else I could discover. The image which crossed my awareness was of lace, or what appeared to be lace, and a crochet-hook. Upon discussion with Lovely Lee, we found an image which was just like the one I ‘saw’ and was an example of “tatting”.
One more point to explore: the crochet hook. I was excited to find an article which had been reproduced from a Ladies Journal in the mid-1800s of a style of tatting which used a crochet hook. YAY!
So, ‘Beatrice Margaret’ has been a great source of knowledge and education, so far. I am looking forward to getting to know her MUCH better.
I think she has been the most interesting past life character because she is really ‘present’ in my awareness. It’s like she is reaching out from ‘her’ world to connect with me in my world. I have been able to look below the surface and find a strong, intelligent woman of many skills who survived in a very unforgiving world. It kind of makes me think that maybe I am stronger than I realise and also that all challenges can be met, and overcome.
Thank You, Beatrice!
Thank You, Beverly!
