I love it when spirits guide you. They will persist with you in the most unusual ways and I wanted to share this story with you that has only just happened as I feel it is quite special! Well actually thinking back it all started back in May but the penny has only just dropped.. so I hope you are sitting comfortably! The power of spirits guiding is amazing.
Back in May this year, I went to visit my parents. As is usual, Mum and I went shopping and we came across a second hand stall selling jewellery. I am always drawn to turquoise and this bracelet caught my eye so, we brought it. Not only was it turquoise but it reminded me of scarabs that are found in Egypt. I never thought anything else of it.
You will see the circles that are surrounding this story and just demonstrates how life isn’t coincidence – it brings the past, present and future lives together. As you know, I have recently found Turkey to be a magical place so it is no coincidence that turquoise just happens to be my favourite crystal. So what’s the connection? Well…. the name Turquoise is derived from the French, pierre turquoise, meaning ‘Turkish stone’, because the trade routes that brought Turquoise to Europe from the mines in central Asia went through Turkey, and Venetian merchants often purchased the stone in Turkish bazaars!
Anyway, back at home around July time, we found this wonderful Mill which has been converted into an antiques place which is just wonderful. Lots of different rooms selling a whole host of wonderful old (and new) products. I could have spent a fortune. I love going round these places as I love to feel the energy that comes from the items that are there, especially jewellery. Anyway, the first time we went into the antiques mill and there staring straight at me was this turquoise necklace which could have been made for my bracelet… coincidence? You would have thought it! Me being me though, I don’t believe in coincidence, everything happens for a reason.
Didn’t think anything of it and thought that it was the end of it and although they were not really made for each other were supposed to be joined together.
So, there I was on Saturday sat in the garage waiting for my car to be serviced reading ‘Canyon Road’ by Thea Thomas. Which is basically a love story reminding us that if you are meant to be together, no matter how far you run away the Universe makes sure that you come together. I read the whole book in 4 hours! In the book one of the characters belonged to the Zuni tribe. A Native American tribe that I had not heard of before. I am fascinated about Native American tribes so that got my curiosity heightened. So I decided to look them up and can you imagine my surprise when I came across a picture of their jewellery!!! Now you can’t tell me that was coincidence!!!!
What makes it interesting is if you link the necklace to the story, the flowers that designed on their look like forget-me-nots – the flowers that signify love!
Even went I went to find my jewellery to take pictures for this blog I was shown exactly where they were. Whilst I love it when spirits do it, they don’t do it just for the sake of doing it – well sometimes they like to have a laugh! There is always a reason why they want to guide us to things. In my blog Turkey as a spiritual destination I touched on being pulled to different stages of history – and I am more than sure that this is linked to past lives. Cementing this point – did you know that turquoise is linked to working with past lives and past lives healing! Why do you get pulled so strongly to something you have to read everything you can on it?
Whilst I don’t know the reason yet, I know I have to do some more research on the Zuni Tribe and of course meditation to try to make it all make some sense. At this moment in time, I am being guided to the fact that Native Americans mined turquoise to guard burial sites. I’m sure this is not the last you have heard of this!
So who were the Zuni Tribe?
Well interestingly they are a Mexican tribe who speak their own unique language. According to http://www.zuniindian.net/: “there are roughly 12,000 Zuni living on the New Mexico reservation. The tribe still inhabits the ancient homelands along the middle stretch of the Zuni River. The area is home to several ancient settlements and villages where the tribe once built compact, multi-story houses and remains an important part of Zuni culture.”
They still continue to practice their traditional shamanistic religion with its regular ceremonies, dances, and mythology.
I know I am being shown more about this tribe so I will share the journey as it unfolds. I just find it fascinating how spirits will get you there even though it may be a bit unconventional!
