Author & mystic Pip DeBelfry relates the intriguing story of how, after her husband deserted her and left her with nothing, she encountered a mysterious entity that changed her life…

In the first part, we discovered how Pip’s life was a difficult struggle, bringing up her children on next to nothing, and not even getting child support from her husband, who had run off with another woman.

“I was like a zombie, an all pervading bleakness beset my every waking moment,” she said, going on to describe how she ended up on anti-depressants.

Then one night, at her wit’s end, half-drunk on vodka, Pip went to bed crying – and was startled to find a presence lying next to her in bed. Terrified, she wondered if it was a ghost or poltergeist. When she mustered the courage to look round, she was shocked to find a woman lying next to her – “a woman who looked just like me,” she said. “It was me…[but] it was like she was the woman I could be…”

And in the second part, Pip wakes up the next morning thinking it was all a vivid dream. But her other self is still in the room, and tells her: “I am your plus entity, and you have become the minus entity. In your despair, you have given up on life. You have let negativity consume you. And that is why I have separated from you.”

Pip’s Other Self then says she will usher her into a new life, where she can fulfill her potential as a human being. Although reluctant, Pip decides to go along with her Other Self – despite having had difficulties even going out due to panic attacks and general anxiety.

In the third part, Pip’s Other Self takes her to a coffee shop downtown, and tells Pip that she has been subconsciously “pushing herself” due to an innate feeling of being undeserving and unworthy. Her Other Self advises her to seek her “true self” within. And by doing this she will discover that “whatever you choose to be, you can be.” With that, her Other Self disappeared…

From the desk of Pip DeBelfry:

After my Other Self vanished on the street corner, I got on with my life. And I eventually put the uncanny experience down to some kind of symptom of the depression I had been suffering. I decided that some part of me (my subconscious mind?) had given me the experience, perhaps as a way of shaking me out of the gloomy ennui that had overtaken my life.

Nevertheless, something inside me had changed as a result of the encounter with my Other Self. The idea of finding my “true self” – that indefinable something which lies within – had taken hold of me. I began to approach life with greater resolve and purpose.

I didn’t know for sure what that purpose was. But I was starting to see that life could be approached like a great adventure. And by doing that, a purpose, or definite aim, could be found.

As my Other Self said, “Whatever you choose to be, you can be…”

Instead of just accepting my lot in life, I began to realize that I could take the helm of my “mental ship”, and could become the master of my own destiny.

Admittedly, I couldn’t change fate. What will be, will be. But I could learn to flow with the trials and tribulations of life with definite purpose – and thus all things would be become a wonderful exploration of the possibilities that are available to us, if we will only see them.

Even failures and setbacks could be seen as opportunities to be learned from, rather than as excuses to feel defeated and to give up. And if the course of my “mental ship” needed changing by a notch or two, or even a full compass point, then so be it. I would make the most of these change and approach them with a sense of excitement and exuberance BECAUSE they signify a new direction, which could enliven my definite purpose, and help me fulfill it.

But that wasn’t the end of my contact with my Other Self…

She was to return and give me a powerful message that would strengthen my resolve still further, and would be another key into putting my old defeated life behind me, and bringing my new “filled with purpose” life to the fore.
