Agkelos…you sent me two reads one that you originally thought was for Maya but then after seeing my picture sent to me.
The first one has quite a bit that relates to both the context of the picture and a little about me:
Purple or pink flowers, lots of small or thin petals, not like a rose or anything, but I don't know much about flowers. Feels like you might, maybe
someone who likes to garden or arrange flowers... As for those flowers in particular, you have a fondness for them, or they hold some importance to
Addis Ababa the capital of Ethiopia in Amharic actually means “new flower.” While I can’t say flowers occupy much of my time (I do appreciate
them) the fact that you saw flower imagery makes a lot of sense.
Fish, small fish, perhaps goldfish. At first I saw fishing or swimming in a river or lake, a favoured location, possibly secluded. But then it seemed
more like a small pond, maybe in a small backyard, or possibly a large and well-decorated fishtank. The fish are orange, white, red... that sort of
I was thinking about my son as I posted this picture and one of the things he always does when I drop him off at day care is run to the fish tank that
is built in to the wall of his room and wave to me smiling as I walk by to say goodbye. The tank is full of big orange gold fish. This whole wave
goodbye thing is special to me...favored you might say.
Then I see curtains, maybe near to an open fireplace, but they are white with a pattern on them. Hard to see but it seems like it might be a floral
sort of pattern, purple or pink flowers, as mentioned earlier? Roughish material but not all that thick. The fireplace might actually be one of those
old ovens that use a wood fire instead of electricity or gas, if it's in a kitchen. maybe overlooking that backyard mentioned earlier. A pretty small
kitchen though it might open out into a bigger dining area. Other side is a door into the laundry, even smaller than the kitchen.
You could not have described the scene of this picture any better before seeing it. There is in fact a smaller room of the side that I remember had
some laundry stuff in it, and though the dining area wasn’t connected it was so close it might as well have been.
Oh, and I also felt some sort of affinity to birds. Coloured birds, like parrots or something, it seemed to me. Fond of birds? Had one as a pet in
your childhood, maybe? Or someone close to you, seems like it might be a child.
One thing I remember about the orphanage ground was that there were small pretty yellow birds on the grounds almost like canaries. The fact that this
was an orphanage would explain your association with childhood.
I also see a dark car, smallish but relatively new, maybe a few years at most. Seems like it might be dark purple, but maybe blue, but very dark. It
feels significant, but I'm not sure why.
There has been some scrutiny on the process of Adoption in Ethiopia b/c child trafficking concerns have been brought to the attention of some of the
officials. In fact some of the older kids who came to the USA once they learned English told their adoptive families that they were not orphans and
had families, but one day a dark car showed up and took them away. This was reported on American media that Ethiopian families were told their kids
would go to the USA to get educated and come back. Con’s in dark cars!!!
nother thing I'm not sure of is a woman, aged... 20 to 40? She seems to enjoy looking at the world through windows, often spends time watching out the
windows of her house. She has an appreciation for the sun and for quietness, enjoys sitting alone and relaxing and such. Washing dishes while watching
people outside in the yard, or sitting in the garden with a book and a hot drink. Prefers to be an observer. Anyone you know?
This one I actual can’t relate to or connect to anything, but there could be something relating to the context of the orphanage or something that I
am just not aware of.
Overall I’d say this was one spot on read that I could certainly connect with . It’s funny that you didn’t even intend it for me in the first
Your second read did not appear to me to be so pointed. The parts where you described bits of my personality were spot on and to the “T.” The
other stuff I couldn’t really relate to. I’ll post the parts that were about me and comment, and then post the other parts for everyone to
I think you enjoy exploring and seeing new things. Seems like you might be the sort to want to do a lot of traveling, and there's someone you travel
with - your partner? Or maybe a sibling. One of you likes to travel, at least, I think.
We’ll you already know I made it to Ethiopia, I’ve been to Alaska, all over the USA and really want to do more. One of my aspirations in life is
to see more of the world, but I really want to get abroad with a humanitarian focus. The pain and suffering in the world concerns me a lot.
You seem very thoughtful, as though you take the time to sit and watch and think about things a lot. Also seems like you’re very sure about
yourself, confident in your beliefs and all that. Calm, accepting, thoughtful, contented sort of personality; reminds me of a warm, gentle breeze.
I am very much a thinker and once I have reached a conclusion about something I have a sense of rightness that creates a calm in me that other persons
disagreement or oppositions can’t shake. I am also generally very accepting and like to give people room to be themselves and grace to flub up. I
dig the relaxing breeze imagery.
The rest of the read is as follows:
Crescent moon, pale yellow. In fact, it seems like it might be a light or light is coming through it, but maybe something like... one of those
glow-in-the-dark plastic things? It has that soft glow about it, and even a feeling of being watched in the darkness, the centre of someone's
concentration while thinking things over, perhaps while lying in bed. Shiny gold coin, looks new or well-kept, quite big for a coin, maybe even a
medal type thing? Seems like that, a reward of some kind, an achievement, though I don't see any ribbon or anything like that attached. Doesn't feel
like typical currency, unless it's something collectable or otherwise intended for show rather than practical use. A white bowl. Not sure why that
would be significant, but it seems like it has importance, and it's very pale in colour, maybe like bone china with that translucency. It might have a
bit of a blue pattern painted on it around the edge but not sure. I see water dripping... A glass of water... Then a room shaking, the glass tipping
over and spilling... Lightning, or maybe just flashing lights, but it seems like lightning to me. Been near an earthquake recently? Brittle bones.
Someone whose body is weak, like from old age but worse than it should be for their age. A woman, I think it must be. She's shaking and has trouble
walking by herself, and it seems like she might be depressed, really unhappy about her condition, like she's ashamed to be so frail. People try to
help her, and she lets them, though reluctantly, and her face is sad and shows her disappointment in herself. I think her hair was brown but it's more
greying now, and she's really pale. She's a fairly small person, like short with a thin frame, and very cold. I mean, when you touch her hands, she
feels cold, but that coldness also seems to represent her feelings towards life now, even if she used to be much warmer and full of life when she was
young. That would explain her displeasure now, if she used to be the sort of person to actively and adventurously embrace life but now relies of the
help of others just to walk and look after herself. And something to do with shoes? I keep getting shoes coming to mind, like they're someone's focus
- someone looking at things from floor level, watching people walking, perhaps, or looking down, watching the floor, as they walk? Shoes, shoes...
hmm, I don't know. Do you have a cut on your neck, maybe on the left side? Or maybe not you but someone you know; a young, male relative, most likely.
It seems like maybe it was done with a small blade, but not necessarily on purpose. Definitely seems like a cut from something metal though. Earlier I
saw a blade of some kind, a knife, something silver and not that big, perhaps a pocket knife or something similar in shape and size. Maybe that was
it, but can’t be sure. I sense a lot of… feelings of metal, and the colours gold and silver seem to have significance. Do you own a lot of metal
objects that are meaningful? Or do metals hold any particular significance to you? I can’t really tell what it’s meant to mean though; I just get
a lot of images of metal. For example, metal bracelet and other jewelry which are mainly silver in colour, as far as I can tell.
So overall I’d say you certainly picked up on some real stuff especially from what I can see in the first read. Maybe there is stuff in there I am
just not aware of and can’t personally relate to the context of my picture or anything else, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have some actual
Good stuff Agkelos thanks!!
