I have always felt a close tie with Versailles. Many years ago, before becoming fully aware of the nature of past lives, I visited the palace and declared that I had found my spiritual home. A few weeks ago, I recounted that story to a friend while we were talking about our shared love of Baroque architecture and stylings. Suddenly, a far memory pushed unbidden into my mind, and I recalled that I did indeed spend time at Versailles as a courtier during the reign of Louis XVI…I also felt that I was not a particularly good person in that life.
I did not have time to look further into it until recently at a Brian Weiss workshop. Dr. Brian Weiss is a noted Psychiatrist and and an expert in the area of past, in-between and future life journeying (many are more familiar with the term past-life regression). As this is a cornerstone of my practice, I wanted to see him speak in person - he did not disappoint!
During a group regression at the event, he had us recall a memory from our past (I recalled a scene where I was very angry with my birth father), and then Dr. Weiss guided us back further to a prior time (for me it was the lifetime in Versailles). In that life, I saw myself immaculately dressed in a salmon colored gown with bows up the bodice and lace cascading off of the sleeves at the elbow. I was wearing my hair piled high onto of my head, and it felt heavy and cumbersome. I saw myself initially in the garden behind the maison, amidst the perfectly manicured topiary.
After examining a couple of scenes from this life, one thing became very clear…I was an absolutely awful person. I saw myself sitting at my dressing table, turned around mid-screach, having just shattered something crystal against the door to my bedchamber which my husband had just shut behind him. My chambermaid was on the floor attempting to clear up the broken mess, and I kicked her in her stomach in my rage. This was not an uncommon occurrence. I was truly awful to my servants. I then skipped forward to my death, standing on a wooden stage next to my husband, awaiting our turn for the guillotine. I was grabbed on my left arm by the guard and I spat at him for daring to touch me. Up until the moment the blade came down, I was resolutely entitled, unyielding and full of contempt.
As a person resolutely against yelling and violence in my current life, I was honestly quite surprised. I recognized my then husband as my birth father from my current incarnation, though I did not fully understand the connection beyond my anger at him in both circumstances. I refused to believe that the only thing to take away from that life was to avoid being a insufferable harpy in this one, so I made an appointment with Leslie Juvin-Acker (my psychic twin) to fill in the blanks by accessing more detail from that life.
