My mother, a cold, Reiki, Pompeii, and past lives

What my mom came and saw… Photo by Jill Green

My mom caught a cold while touring Italy so as a Reiki Master, I sent her distance Reiki. It’s also a meditation and sometimes I’ll see things such as symbols, messages, past lives, etc.

In the midst of her Reiki session, I unexpectedly saw a volcano erupting, killing many below. Naturally, I thought of Pompeii and the sensation I had was my mother may have had a past life during that time.

After the session, I didn’t say anything about it, putting it away for the time being. She recovered, resumed her travels and I forgot about the vision.

However, the next few days I kept getting synchronicities that were specific about Pompeii that prompted me to tell her about what I saw. I asked where she was and it turned out she was only an hour away from there even though she had no plans to visit the ruins. I urged her to go and said it could be a deeply moving experience for her.

She ended up going. At the ruins, there was a point where she went off the beaten path, walked alone through some minor ruins and stumbled upon a retrospective of the plaster casts of the victims. When she saw one of a young woman, it inexplicably struck her deeply, bringing deep reflection and tears.

A past life perhaps? It never ceases to amaze how indelibly interwoven everything is – our lives, the things we experience, the synchronicities, and such into a brilliant tapestry across our universes.
