My first Numerology reading in 2001 commences.
My first numerology session was booked for three hours long. I was intimidated at the thought that someone thought there was enough to me to spend three hours with me. What could she possibly find to tell me about myself in three hours? I could tell you what I thought about myself in less than five minutes. I did not think it painted a very pretty picture at all and was petrified that she would tell me there was not much substance to myself at all.
When I got to her house, I was made to feel very welcome and she got me to relax very quickly. The house smelled heavenly, with permeating aromas of incense and other lovely-smelling things. A lovely, comfortable chair in her cozy lounge and a soothing cup of orange and ginger tea and I was ready for whatever was coming.
She asked me for my name and date of birth, checked on nicknames, married name and my birth date. Was I adopted or was there any possibility that my birth date was “fiddled” to coincide with some other auspicious family member?… Oh my goodness! I hoped not! What name did I think of myself as?
Then came another question. Did I believe that there was a possibility that that we might experience more than one lifetime on earth? Good grief! You should have seen me opening and closing my mouth like a stupid goldfish. In Afrikaans they have a lovely saying to describe exactly that: “Bubbles gehap”!
Now, as I mentioned, I had a good Christian upbringing. How could she ask me that? How did I even THINK of the possibility without incurring some dreadful punishment? Was I now supposed to ask her if she were a Christian and, if not, get up and leave? What to answer? I had read vaguely of such things, even briefly considered them but very quickly diverted my attention to more appropriately Christian thoughts. Even if I could briefly let such thoughts cross my mind in private, how did I even begin to verbalize any of it? I did not nearly possess the vocabulary to verbally go down that road.
…In the end, after what must have been only a few seconds but felt like a lifetime……………. my true self and Scorpio nature got the better of me. Hesitantly I volunteered that I heard of such things but never thought much about it, but why did she ask me that? How clever of me! I had not given an answer! Surely by just LISTENING to her with my arms crossed in front of my chest to subconsciously protect myself and ward off any unwanted influences I was not doing anything wrong…
Tomorrow I will reveal the answer she gave me that began to change my view of life.
