I like watching movies – really great movies. But many times they bring up past life memories for me. I was recently watching Gladiator with Russell Crowe and it brought up a lot of sadness for me. I had a pretty good idea of what it was about but I still asked Kat, one of Foretell’s psychics just to be sure.
In that past life, my father had been a general in the Roman army. However, he wound up dying at the hands of a gladiator. I wanted to know how that came about. Kat said that he had been a good general, but as he got older he had too many wounds. His superiors were afraid he might be overpowered by someone else, so they sent him to die in the gladiator arena. I guess it was still considered a way to die with honor, but I still carried a lot of grief for him even into my present life.
Since I was on the subject, I asked Kat if she could tell me in more detail about what happened to me in that life after my father died. I knew that I also became a Roman soldier but I didn’t know anything beyond that. Well, this part was news to me. She said that I was a good soldier and that basically I worked my way up the ranks until I had the same effective power as a general, but not the title. I didn’t understand that, but that’s how she put it. I was ok with it, however. Maybe I didn’t want the title. At any rate, Kat said that I commanded battalions of soldiers, and if I said that they had to go over there, they went over there. If the soldiers were exhausted and we still had mountains to climb, we climbed mountains. I made sure that whatever had to be done was done.
Apparently I was very successful as a commander in the Roman army. I asked her if there were any famous campaigns I was in. She said yes but couldn’t name any. Then I asked her if I had met Marcus Aurelius and she said yes. That part amazed me. Later on she told me that I had a wife and 4 sons and a daughter. I spoiled my daughter. When I asked her how I died, she said of old age. At least I managed to avoid my father’s fate.
I have always been in awe of military commanders, especially those who were experts in tactics and strategy, but my sense of it was that back then we basically fought with swords and spears and shields. I know the Romans developed their own very effective battlefield methods, but in my mind it was pretty simple. Go over there, destroy those people and so on until we were done. The campaigns I was in lasted months and in a few cases, years.
It has always been difficult for me to see myself in a position of such large responsibility and power; in fact I have pretty much resisted such things most of my life. But at least I know that in that life I discharged my duties faithfully and hopefully, honorably, for the good of others.
The other reason this is interesting to me is that Kat has told me I might be getting a raise and promotion soon, and that my superiors may request that I go to the headquarters of my company to basically teach what I have learned so far on my own. I think that’s really funny and I couldn’t stop laughing about it last night. I sit out on a distant outpost every night and I never got the impression that they really cared that much about what I thought, and now after several years all of a sudden they want to listen to me? It just makes me crack up.
To be fair, there is a manager at my post who apparently will be going to a lot of effort to make my name known to the people in charge. He really is a good ally. He seems to like the work I do even if he does give me a hard time sometimes. But to me, I’m just doing what needs to be done. I’ve had to figure it out pretty much on my own, but I’m generally pretty good at that. I have my own way of doing things, but I don’t know if I can teach that to others or if it will work for them also. It’s based on a different way of looking at things and I don’t know if people will get that or not.
Anyway, we’ll see what happens. It won’t be for a few months anyway and a lot could happen between now and then.
