This is not a fact finding or “must be” writing….just my opinion through my own experiences. This topic has many different opinions and I suggest finding what resonates with you and going with that.
For the longest time I wondered what the purpose of knowing our past lives would be or if they even existed. I heard many stories and honestly….some sounded so far fetched it put me off believing it. Then I started becoming more involved in the spiritual community and really listening to other people’s stories and experiences. From doing psychic medium readings I knew there was life on the other side but hadn’t really experienced any returned souls yet. Then it happened….a mother who had lost a child in a premature birth came to me for a reading about a different topic. To make a long story short….it came out in the reading that her lost child had returned when she had another child a few years later. A bit different from the past life stories I was interested in but it was only a start.
The next thing that really peaked my interest and started me thinking about how past lives affect us now came from a past life regression I did myself. It was a group regression and we got a short look at a couple different past lives. I noticed a pattern in a few of mine and this pattern really explained one my few fears….being alone. It really explained why I had the fear and yet…in the back of head I was still doubting a bit. Was it just an overactive imagination? My subconscious trying to find answers or make excuses? A friend then shared her past life regression (from another time) with me and she had a similar experience with a phobia being explained by a previous death. She had an extreme fear of snakes…beyond the “ewwww” factor. In her past life regression she found herself as a horse rancher and there was a commotion in the paddock. The horses were getting worked up over something. She went in to check on them and the was a rattlesnake in there. She didn’t get bit but a horse reared up and when it came down it landed on her chest and crushed her. She also has breathing problems now….hhhmmm. Again I wasn’t sure if it was her subconscious but either way she had found her fear of snakes eased up some once she knew where it came from. Now I started thinking there was really a purpose to this. I decided to experiment with doing some past life readings….this is where I got my BAM moments! These were readings and not regressions.
They just seemed to flow and I was doing them for people I knew nothing about…complete strangers. I asked them nothing, just to provide a picture of the face & eyes if done via phone or email. I started to see it happen over and over! The past lives brought up reasons for current fears & phobias! Past deaths or tragic experiences reflected their very deep fears they felt now. One example was a woman that fell off a cliff and into the water where she passed from drowning and in this life it turned out she had a extreme fear of water & a complete panic if her face went under. Another was a woman that in her past life she started to lose her vision and get severe headaches & dizziness, became bedridden and passed from a brain tumor. In this life….mind you I had no clue….she had this deep fear that she would have an aneurysm or brain tumor! There have been many more similar stories.
I’m not talking about this to pat myself on the back for the readings but to bring up the impact that knowing something about our past lives can help us understand & heal the fears we have now. If we know where they may be coming from then we can start to let them go. There is a definite healing aspect in the connection to our past experiences. It also reflects some our loves & passions for what we do now. Why we’re drawn to art, music, dance, healing or books. We’ve done this before! We are remembering!
Then there’s the other aspect of the readers that give this a bad name and make it a joke. This irks me to no end! I hear many times about how people were told their past life was an Egyptian princess or some other high up royalty. Is it possible? Sure…but come on….how many royalty were out there compared to commoners? What are the odds? Some readers will just stroke the ego of the client and tell them they were some really important person because it’s what they wanted to hear. Where is that helping the client? I have never found this to be the case yet….maybe shamanic healers or wise elders but never a princess or king! I firmly believe that if we are going to look into a past life then it is for a reason…to learn, to grow & to heal. There is so much we can learn from where we have been 🙂
Much love & blessings,
