The Gratitude Twins

A PsychicGenealogy Reading for Jennifer O.

Some psychic genealogy readings are very quick snapshots of connectivity. Such was the case when I did a reading for a close associate named Jennifer O. She asked if I would channel our friendship, and we learned that we had been Japanese twins, quite a while back in history.

The twins were born into a family who were members of a touring company of performers. They were boys who dressed as girls for performances, and were trained from a very early age to perform a particular act, which was to form kanji characters using black fans and their bodies in black outfits, in very specific positions.

The twins could leap into the characters for:
Dragon – Peace – Obedience – Honor – Gratitude

In order to work out the positions for the kanji characters, the twins began by lying down on the floor in rehearsal, and their mother would get up on a little ladder to get a full view and direct them. “Tip your fans to the right – there! No, the angle is off… up a little bit… there! That’s it! Now, move the right foot – that’s good – further to the right… Perfect! Hold that pose!” Their mother had a very precise personality. Under her direction the Gratitude Twins made wonderful kanji forms.

Once they had perfected each kanji character position, they would map each one out and determine where to place the pegs that the twins would need to support themselves once they were doing the forms in an upright position. Behind the white rice paper backdrop of the stage, there was a wooden frame with a grid which had holes drilled into it to support the pegs. The holes were color coded, and their mother, plus her team, would stand unseen behind the stage and insert the white pegs into the particular holes between each kanji form. These pegs were invisible to the audience, but supported the twins in forming each kanji character with grace and accuracy.

In the performances, right before they dramatically jumped to form the last kanji, Gratitude, their father, who served as the troop’s Master of Ceremonies, would ask the audience (with a wink) to reward their efforts. He would pass a modest copper pot through the crowd for “Gratitude Offerings.”

There was usually a fine result. If the copper became full, their father would stuff his own pockets and the pockets of the twins, and then send the pot around again and again, until the twins were so weighed down with coins that they would topple over. “So much Gratitude! Look, you’ve collapsed our act!” their father would congratulate the audience.

It was a good-natured company of actors. Although there were a few thieves in their midst, most of the company members were honorable people and good performers.

One of the twins went on to become a famous Geisha when he grew older. The other brother did not desire that lifestyle, so he stayed with his parents, and eventually inherited his father’s position as the company’s Master of Ceremonies, and taught the kanji act to the next generation of performers.
