THE CENTER – RVA

Today is a very special day – the beginning of a new chapter in my life. For over twenty-five years I have been researching reincarnation. It all started with conversations with my father’s ghost. Dad was a Chinese Buddhist, and I wondered what his beliefs in reincarnation would mean for his next life. However, like so many people, he did not know a lot about Buddhist beliefs about reincarnation.

But when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Then, Brian Weiss, M.D., author of Many Lives Many Masters, entered my life and, like a caterpillar’s transformation into a butterfly, I began to change. Like the butterfly, whose struggle to come out of its cocoon is an important part of its process to be able to take flight in the world, I have gone through a process to prepare me for this day – the birth of THE CENTER – RVA, a center for spiritual growth.

My reincarnation research, my conversations with my father’s ghost and all the teachers who have come into my life, and putting what I have learned into practice has prepared me for this next chapter. After years of training with Sanaya Roman, Brian Weiss, M.D., and Carol Bowman, I am pleased to “move forward in the direction of my dreams.”

THE CENTER – RVA is a center without walls. It is more about a state of mind than a bricks-and-mortar place. I will offer classes, workshops and gatherings while I continue to work on the book, Conversations with a Hungry Ghost: Memoir of a Reluctant Medium, and prepare for a trip to my father’s birthplace in China with my Roots Plus group.

Check out my website for THE CENTER – RVA and join me for my upcoming workshop, Karma 2 Dharma: From Healing the Past to Embracing Your Life Purpose.

Last, but not least, I want to say “Thank, Mom.” I had cared for her for over a year before she left her physical body in January, and I shared with her some of my beliefs about what happens and where we go when we die. It was an experience I will always treasure. So, I was not surprised when she came to me moments after she crossed over. Like a mother bird who pushes the baby bird out of the nest, she said, “Don’t be afraid. It’s time to fly.”

 

Perpetual Student

I believe that I learn something new everyday, but each year I like to focus on at least one specific class. This year I wanted to add to my Past Life Regression practice. To that end, I was pleased to complete a PLRT training with Carol Bowman, author of Children’s Past Lives and Return from Heaven. In 2012, I was fortunate to have a private session with Carol, so I was familiar with her technique, which is different from the techniques I learned with Brian Weiss. M.D. Both techniques are excellent and I believe they give me more tools in my PLRT toolbox.

Sometimes, what I learn is something about myself. During the training, we had opportunities to practice the techniques on one another. So, I am grateful for the breakthroughs I was able to make on my own issues. I believe healing those issues gives me a clearer vision about my life purpose. As I integrate what I learned at Temenos into my practice, this student continues to learn more about myself and others, and about life.

I love Carol Bowman’s approach: a small group in a sacred space (Temenos Retreat Center). And her mentoring after the training encourages me to move forward in the direction of my dreams. Thanks, Carol!

What will I learn today?

Free Video Series with Dr. Brian Weiss

When I began my exploration into reincarnation/past lives twenty plus years ago, I was guided to Dr. Brian Weiss’s book Many Lives Many Masters. I was also fortunate to be able to attend many of his workshops and, eventually, everything lined up for me to train with Dr. Weiss in PLRT (Past Life Regression Therapy).

Some of the BEST CHOICES I have ever made in my life, but that’s another story.

Dr. Weiss continues his workshops all over the world and this year added a third training at Omega Institute to his schedule. However, if you are not able to attend, you might be interested in his free video series. If you are just curious or seriously interested to know more about reincarnation, don’t miss these videos.

The videos are the next best thing to attending a workshop or training with Dr. Brian Weiss and might be one of the best choices you’ll ever make.

Learning by Remembering

When I began consciously remembering my past lives, I also began to understand why certain subjects came easily for me. Back in the day, I was one of two girls in my high school who signed up for architectural drafting. The class was an easy subject for me much to the consternation of the boys in the class. In fact, long before I signed up for the class, I began drawing pictures of buildings in isometric perspective. I did not know what it was called back then, but I did it because that was the way I saw the building in my mind’s eye.

I remember those pictures in my head as if it were yesterday and the knowing I felt when I said to myself, “I will be a designer.” I was only eleven years old. I was not wealthy, nor was I exposed to architects or designers except in a book that my teacher brought into the library of the country school I attended. The book was about the life of Frank Lloyd Wright and something in that book “triggered a memory.”

Perspective from a past life memory

 

Long story short, I did not become an architect, but I did become an interior designer. I remembered other things that I can now relate to other past lives. For instance, I remember many lives where I practiced Feng Shui and also where I was psychic. In this life, I integrated my Feng Shui and psychic gifts with my interior design and created some amazing designs. And although I have now retired from interior design, I still integrate my psychic gifts with my new careers as past life regression therapist and writer. I wonder what else I will remember.

It made me wonder, what if we helped children remember their gifts and talents from previous lives and allowed them to develop those gifts more fully in this one? What kind of learning system would that be?

 

I dream of a time when we will remember more and nurture our creativity to its fullest. I believe I’ll come back to be part of the age of remembering.

An Inward Glimpse

A slice of eternity. That’s my take on a psychic reading. For me, the same is true about astrological transits. Recently, I “checked-in” with my favorite astrological website, Astro.com, and was pleasantly surprised when a current transit affirmed a recent blog.

The way I see it, an astrological chart is like a Triptik, a guide for a trip, but just that. It gives me guidance about the road ahead. It’s a guide. Where exactly I go on the trip is completely up to me.

I recently had a Triptik created for a trip to New York. I requested a route to avoid the Delaware Memorial Bridge, a bridge that used to freak me out big time. I am not the only one who is afraid of this bridge. There is actually a team who will help you drive across it.

I was headed to a Past Life Regression Training with The Weiss Institute at Omega Institute and you can be sure that I hoped to overcome my fear of bridges during the training. Long story short, I had a past life journey that did indeed help me resolve this fear.  By the time I drove home, it was dark and raining cats and dogs, but I did it. So, yeah, I believe going deeply within is a great way to guide me on my outward journey.

Act 2

Getting older is not what it used to be. In fact, it is better!

Instead of retiring, many folks are discovering a new vocation or avocation. And so it is for me. I used to be passionate about interior design. I ate, drank and slept it. I even dreamed about interior design. I’d often wake up in the middle of the night from a dream, where I solved a design problem, and write down my solution. Lately, my passion has changed.

When I retired from interior design last December to take care of my mother, I knew that it was time to pursue my new passions: writing about my research into reincarnation and helping others, as I had been helped, through Past Life Regression Therapy. More about all of these exciting new acts in future posts, but today I am pleased to announce that my short story, “The Not So Secret Life of Emily Elizabeth,” will be available on Amazon on November 28th – just TWO MORE DAYS. (You can pre-order your copy now.)
