A friend of mine told me a funny story. She once had an energy reading done and the reader looked at her with total seriousness and said, "I see you in a past life...You are wearing a brown hat." She was like, "Yes...and????" And she said, "That is all I am getting."
We laughed at how funny some readers can be about getting past life information. To me this is a sign of a beginning reader or someone who doesn't have much confidence or ability with their skills. We have all had many past lives and relationships with many different people, but there is absolutely no point in any of this information if it doesn't pertain to your life NOW and empower you IN THIS ONE. The point is this...We are here now. Let's be practical and get to how we can learn our lessons more clearly, easily and with more joy. Or else, really...What is the point?
There is also some misinformation regarding channeled information. The idea is that if the poem, song, or book is channeled it must be from a higher, more pure place. But there are lots of entities out there with low vibrations or even trickster vibrations that can give you a bunch of channeled crapola. I mean, maybe The Baha Men's song, "Who Let The Dogs Out?" was channeled from a pack of passed-over chiuaua's.
