Anyways, I wasn't sure what section to put this in....
There is a place not that far from me that is rather odd, it is somehow "home" and gives me great peace whenever I go there. It's doesn't really give me a sense of deja vu..... I guess the feeling is really hard to explain. I searched into the land and found out that there was only record of one person ever living there and this fellow ended up selling it (or was forced to sell it) back to the government. It is now part of a wildlife management area so I don't think it can be owned again (though for all the life of me I wish I could get it).
Anyways, I don't know why but for some reason I felt inspired to dig in a certain place and I started to uncover all sorts of stuff that had been intentionaly buried there who knows how long ago. I didn't find aything that seemed all that important but some of the stuff I didn't understand why they would bury it like tools, handsaws, a rake, shovel, remnants of a chest (that may have been whole when it was bried), medicinal glass bottles (some still sealed with their contents)...... that kind of stuff. I found it odd that this stuff was buried, more so that I chose to dig there. I haven't dug down very far but I almost think I should..... see what I find.
It's kinda strange, I don't think I was this guy in a past life his name isn't familar to me, but in my travels I have never come across a place I felt so connected to. Even places I have lived have never felt like as much of a home as this place does.
Hi, I'm Jane, I live in Crete, and I am thoroughly convinced that I belong here, not in England, where I was born. It is as though my feet have invisible roots that go deep into the land. I had a dream, when I first came to live here, which convinced me of this. Surviving here has been the most difficult thing, the hardships it has meant to be here are unbelievable, but yet I know that this is where I should be. I can only put this down to a genetic 'returning' or something like that. I love Cretan music, which is not usual for western people. My spirit seems at home with it. I live half way up a mountain in a very traditional village, not everyone's cup of tea, but I love it. The thing is, that I have met other people who have the same feeling about Crete. For some strange reason they feel they belong here.
Are we souls returning to our birthplace in another life? It's a thought!
When I first came to Crete I had a dream, out of body experience, call it what you will, which prompted me to write a book. During the course of writing that book I had other dreams which told me to read the book of Daniel in the bible. Now, I did go to Sundayschool when I was a child, but I was not familiar with the book of Daniel. How strange, then to find so much information which related to my book. Coincidence? I think not. I too have begun to meditate. This has opened my mind to so much more universal thought. In fact, the communication I had that night has prompted a whole load of research into metaphysics, philosophy and theology. It is all very exciting.
