After that night I searched for more clues as to who exactly I was in that lifetime and I am excited to say that I'm getting closer and have found out much. The following is a picture I found online of blades that look closest to the interestingly-shaped one I saw in my vision. And guess what kind of swords they are... African blades. Aha! Clue #1...
The closest blade to what I saw was the one with serrated points along its length, the 7th from the right. So, that puts me in Africa. The next thing I searched was "African War Headdress" as I thought maybe that helmet or hat that I saw the golden being wearing could be of African descent as well, maybe leading me to the conclusion of being in a battle between rival tribes of Africa or something. And guess what I found, yup I found clue #2 the large, upturned, sun-hat looking headdress exactly. But what is interesting is that when I researched more into it, it seems like that item of clothing is worn by only Zulu women. Interesting, because at first I got the vibe that I had been a man in that life, but now I see the correlation between the highly protective and loving nature of that existence and the flickering wildness I had previously seen, which I had thought briefly at the time (that looks like long hair flying in the wind). Very interesting...
As I researched Zulu culture, I found certain similarities between them and the Hawaiians. Both the Zulu and Hawaiians looked to the skies for guidance and wisdom. Both noted the Pleiades cluster as a marker of the New Year when it rose in the Eastern sky as the sun set in the West. Hawaiians refer to the Pleiades as Makalii, and it heralds in the Makahiki season, a time of Peace and harvest and the friendly competition of the Makahiki games while the Zulu saw it as the start of the agricultural season.
I even noticed similarities of traditional dress between the two ethnic groups, skirts of grass worn by both as well as arm bands and ankle bands. Even the word "shaka" holds much significance for both cultures although for very different reasons. A "shaka" being the unofficial hand-gesture of Hawaii, typically used by the locals instead of a wave or thumbs up or known as the "hang loose" gesture by tourists. Shaka, was also the name of the most famous ruler of the Zulu people, a warrior king.
Still not much to go off of but I'm searching...
I Am Kawehi. 27 years of life on this earth, steadily growing, rising and blossoming like a lotus birthing through the mud, upwards into crystal waters and then to rest atop in open air as the firey sun alights my form. I wander. I imagine. I expand and seek to understand. I see. I AM.
