Of course I really want to know.
You won't laugh? Ok, you can laugh but...
Tell me Mirella.
Well. Okaaaay. As you may or may not remember, I recently got into crystals. Remember when I went and housesat for Stewart and Michael? They have those birds, you know. Earl had to go to Atlantic City for two weeks. So I spent a week in Topanga Canyon, this little house filled with sunshine and crystals. Crystals in white sand by the windows, huge crystals on either side of the bed, crystals all around the bathtub. In the living room they had a black coffin. (gestures ‘don't ask me!’)
So then, I started buying books on crystals and books on being a warrior. ‘Pain and depression’ being great 'source materials for transformation’. I had a goldmine there.
Meanwhile I was receiving this newsletter from two women who own this crystal shop--I don't know how they got my address or name. Maybe I bought a book there...anyway....during this extreme period of anxiety, pain and depression, I decide to take one of their workshops called: 'Meet Your Self in Your Past Life'.
No. Like, wow.
Mmm... Of course , I'd often thought about this like everyone else, for about two minutes. I'd see myself in Egypt, riding camels swathed in red silk. Lying back on satin pillows at Roman banquets...surrounded by cherubini feeding me oysters and caviar, pomegranates and zabaglione. The courts of Paris where painters begged to replicate my soft white body.
I found myself at this workshop and with the help of Dolores and Mindy, and this very tall man with a long beard, I found out that in my former life...I was... ta daaaaaaaaaa....
