Before Jimi takes the stage, I’d like to share a request for prayers and healing energy from blog member, Tony. Please help in any way you can for this darling child of God.
Hi Elisa, I hope all is well with you. I was hoping you might be able to post on your site a prayer request for a friend of mine & my wife’s. Our friends, Carrie and Robert, had a baby, Hannah, about 2 years ago and the little girl is in the end stages of Gaucher’s Disease.
Carrie has written a blog about her little girl: http://littlemisshannah.com. It’s such a heartbreaking story, but the love is so inspiring. What might pull couples and families apart has brought theirs so much closer together. So amazed at their strength.
I just found out about this recently as my wife had lost touch with her friend Carrie and they just re-united by way of Facebook over the weekend. When we had last seen Carrie and Robert about 9 years ago, they were desperately trying to have a baby. They ended up adopting 2, and then had their own miracle, Hannah, about 2 years ago. Shortly after, she was diagnosed with this terrible disease. I thought of you and the prayer group when reading their story and thought there was no better love to provide.
Another ting I’d like to share: My PTSD/EMDR therapist recommended a 6 CD audio course by trauma expert, Peter Levine, PhD entitled Healing Trauma: Restoring the Wisdom of Your Body. It’s truly amazing. Many of you have had various traumas, major and minor, and I really think nearly everyone could benefit from this course. Here’s a YouTube video with a short explanation.
If you want to buy the audio course, here’s the Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Healing-Trauma-Sounds-Learning-Course/dp/1591793297/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1319131086&sr=8-1

And now, it’s Jimi’s turn. Enjoy!
Me: Is there a past life that you think influenced this last life the most?
Jamie (laughing): This is awesome, because he’s a bit of a smart-ass! He says in such a calm voice, “Yeah, yeah, probably the one where I was King of France, or maybe it was the one where I was Cleopatra.”
Me: All the famous people!
Jamie: Yeah, he’s finding a sense of humor in it!
Jimi: Really, the life I came out of to get into this last one was one where I was a slave.
Jamie (alarmed): There’s the strangest noise in here. Do you hear it?
Me: Not on my end of the phone.
Jamie (to Erik): Erik, do you hear it?
Jamie (to Erik): In my vent? Why?
Jamie (to Erik): From the outside? You’re kidding me!
Me: Something is in your vent?
Jamie: Yeah, Erik says it’s some animal.
Me: Oh, no!
Jamie: So I have to call someone to help it out.
Jamie (to Erik): Will he be fine until we finish our talk?
Jamie: Okay. Cool! That was a weird sound!
Me: You know, now that you mentioned it, I did hear that scratching sound! Okay, sorry for the interruption, Jimi. Go on, please.
Jimi: It’s all right, Baby. So, the life before the last one where I was a slave probably had the most influence. I was taken from Africa.
Jamie: He’s showing me something on the coast, like a country that starts with an A, kind of fat. Angola?
Me: Oh, I don’t know. I can’t keep up with those countries; they change so much.
Jimi: I was already an older man, but the person who took me took my wife and all my children, because we had such a big family. The language barrier—nobody knew what the other one was saying. We were all cuffed and bound.
Jimi: We were taken. Because of the stress, because of the entanglement of emotions and having no control, on arriving and seeing family split apart, I died. I left my body. I couldn’t handle it. My heart stopped.
Me: Oh, how awful.
Jimi: It was my goal to come back and create a family that I could keep together, and I just failed at that at every turn. But what I found was that when I performed, I had my family right in front of me.
Me: Oh, yeah! Oh, I’m getting goosebumps.
Jimi: That was the only thing that pacified me. That was the only thing that felt right.
