I was not going to answer because when I had read this the first few times I had no clear vision. Dream interpretation is not my confidence unless I am able to read the person's energy. However, I'm getting a clearer sense now, and it's really just building on what the others have said.
Isis often talks about past lives, and to be honest, when I think past-life, I think Egypt, which is strange. Purple in many minds means royalty, but also psychicism. A crown of heather is symbolic because heather is a plant which stimulates the development of inner abilities as well as self-expression. It helps you to nourish the gifts inside of you and then to bring them to the world.
In my mind, this would perhaps be your mind relating and putting into visual form the calling to your path as well as a symbol of your own beauty and abilities which are growing. I have a feeling that past-life work with you may bring some healing as well, and that if you look into them, they will also probably show that you have held your beliefs long before this incarnation.
As for the term Pagan? I didn't actually start using it until a few years ago. You are what you are now, until you aren't. In essence a name means nothing. Follow what your heart tells and give what name you want, if you want to use a name. If you do not feel like it suits you, don't use it. If you feel you aren't ready, wait until you are. If you feel like it fits you but you're afraid you're not "Pagan enough," scrap that idea and embrace the idea that you are worth every imaginary bit of worth that a name has, and be proud! Live it up, and be proud! Honour yourself. Really listen to that phrase: HONOUR YOUR-SELF!! Don't be afraid to let that inner light shine!
Hmm. Twice now this week I've lectured about letting the inner light shine. Probably a message for me as well, but then every message anyone gives is for themselves as well, on some level.
Blessings to you and yours!
