A person possessing a gypsy soul is at peace with herself (I am using the feminine but it can of course be a male gypsy soul also). By at peace I mean to say that she has a strong sense of self, holds her beliefs with conviction, has an enviable self-esteem. Because of this those who possess a gypsy soul take refuge with their own soul and are at rest with themselves. Aloneness fits as a second skin – and yet when they make an effort to be alone in public, people are drawn to their persona and their vibes. It is thought that gypsy souls have this quality because they have enjoyed many past lives and are entertained by memories that to some may deem imaginary. It means nothing to the gypsy that people can’t seem to grasp her comfort in herself as an explanation would only reveal her own secrets which she likes to keep to herself.
Being alone allows the soul to travel the proverbial Seven Seas, exploring ideas, dreaming of the future, adding breathing space where her heart takes her soul and basking in her imagination. It allows for music to be played at her own level of abundance. Being alone allows her to dance to her own drummer, getting lost in the rhythm, swaying with abandon. Aloneness allows for a channelling of spirits, ideas, divinations, meditations, inspiration and freedom to feast and reflect on creativity and self.
Loneliness is not the same as being alone – A gypsy soul is not a lonely soul – she has herself to play with and her passion for freedom to do so.
… and she has known it all of her life
