It is not often a Goddess visits me in a dream but when one does I take notice. My interest is especially peaked when a Goddess is of cultural and emotional significance to me appears and this is what recently happened.
Several weeks ago I had a dream that I was observing a Hindu wedding. Oddly, this wedding was taking place in a Christian church although the attendees were certainly of Asian origin (they were dark skinned and wore saris). My curiosity got the better of me, and I decided to follow the crowd and attend the celebrations inside the church.
The church was very dark, and this contrasted with the guest clothing. I noticed that everybody attending the wedding was female, and the ‘bridesmaids’ were wearing bright pink and green saris. They walked down the aisle throwing flowers, dancing and celebrating. In walked the bride.
The bride was wearing what can only be described as a cross between a sari and a wedding dress. It was white, not red. As the bride got closer to me, I noticed she was staring at me, smiling. As she walked past, her face began to morph into the face of the goddess Kali. As she walked past, her gaze locked on mine and she watched me as she walked further and further down the isle. Suddenly, I woke up.
I was unsure what this dream meant, but I knew it was significant. A day or two afterward I went to Edinburgh with my partner and asked for a sign related to the dream and its meaning. Across the street walked a woman in a bright pink and green sari: I got my sign, I just didn’t know what it meant.
For those of you who are not aware, the Goddess Kali has historical significance to Romany (gypsy) people. Gypsie’s origins are in India, and they initially practiced Hinduism. The unofficial patron Saint of Gypsies known as black Sara (Sara la Kali) is a Christianised version of the goddess Kali. Every year gypsies travel from all over Europe to Frace to her festival where they bathe her statue in the river as they most likely did in the Ganges nearly 1000 years ago.
Due to a lack of education most Gypsies do not know that their origins are in India. However, because I have been formally educated, I am aware of this and I, therefore, respect and acknowledge my ancestor's religion to keep them happy.
Having all of this knowledge after my dream left me in a tight spot. Why was my ancestor’s goddess visiting me? What was the point of the dream?
At the same time, I had been living my life in regret. Many of you will remember my first blog (fortuneteller Lisa Boswell) which was a rather popular site and was the top page of Google for many terms (Lenormand, gypsy fortune teller, real fortune teller, etc.). I deleted that site last year out of anger and stress, and I have regretted it ever since. Don’t get me wrong I love my new website, but every day I wish I had kept those articles I spent hundreds of hours on. I can honestly look back and say my biggest mistake in my life was deleting that website on a whim.
Well, skip forward to this week and I got a Facebook message. A woman who I had been having some trouble with had also been causing trouble with another reader, a reader called Madame Nadia, and my friend alerted me of the public conflict. Nadia reached out to me, and we became friends.
Although from the Middle East, Nadia spent some time living in India. While there, she was initiated into the mysteries of Kali in Shakta Tantra. She is also well versed in technology and was able to advise me how to get all of my previous blog posts back for my new website. I hopped online, followed her instructions and voila! I got my old blogs back! I also managed to set up a system where most of my backlinks get redirected to my new site (the ones linking to the blog, some guy bought the fortune teller Lisa Boswell name lol)
I learned a valuable lesson from this experience. The first being not to invest so much time money and energy just to drop it when I am having a bad day. The second was to trust that spirit always puts the right people together at the right time. I must say that after this experience my faith in my spirituality has strengthened, and I am eternally grateful to Nadia and the Goddess for being a part of my journey.
