At the moment of birth we open a brand new chapter in our soul’s history… some folks believe this one life is, in effect, the whole book, that this one life is all there is to the story of who we are, have been and will be. But energy doesn’t die, it simply transforms. The life force that enlivens our bodies is still very much alive after our bodies go.
As we enter the planet each time we incarnate, a veil drops, we are offered a fresh start… conscious memory is limited to the present lifetime. While it is useful to forget the past – many of us have had so many lives that our minds would be completely boggled with so much detail in our heads – information from previous lifetimes can be very helpful in dealing with the present..
Every one of us shares the same purpose for being here – the evolution and growth of our soul… each life is an opportunity to build on what we have learned in the past. What is interesting is that while we may have little or no conscious memory of our past, old patterns, core beliefs, attitudes, even skills and knowledge are deeply imbedded in our subconscious. We repeat situations until we get the lessons in them. The goal is to bring ourselves, our soul selves, into greater levels of love and awareness.
As we evolve, we will choose to work with others through various lifetimes and in various roles – thus the sensation of soul-mates that comes up in so many relationships. Because we tend to travel in groups, soul families, people from our past often reappear in the present. Usually for a good purpose.
You never know what you will encounter when you do a past life reading… a client once asked for a past life couples reading because she was concerned about another woman who had been pursuing her husband for many years. Her husband swore that there was nothing between them. had never been and never would be… he was sure he hadn’t encouraged her, and in fact had moved across the country, changed phone numbers, blocked her number every time and she still found a way of contacting him…. by now, this situation had placed a real wedge between husband and wife… The moment I opened the reading, I could see that the husband was telling the truth… he had absolutely no interest in this woman, had come to quite dislike her, feared her as a stalker… and with good reason… this woman had been stalking him for hundreds of years… it all began many centuries ago when he took her as a lover, and soon after rejected her… she took her vengeance by poisoning the woman he married,… when he dealt with his grief by setting out for a new land, the pursuit was on… she couldn’t find him in that life, but did in the next… and the next…and the next… time after time, she was rejected by this man, but each time she became more obsessed, more determined to possess him. Over lifetimes, the obsession warped her soul in a sense, certainly stunted her growth… by this lifetime, she was clearly unbalanced, living in a centuries-old fantasy. I could see also how it was that the husband had in a way “invited” this stalker to pursue him… she represented some aspect of his sub-conscious that he rejected and would not face… a place where he himself was out of balance, obsessed… if he would do some deep inner work to see what he has been hiding from all of these years, he could set himself free of this stalker – for good. Whether or not he chose to do the inner work, the reading clearly revealed that there was no reason for distrust in this marriage, my client could let go of her old fears and finally relax in her husband’s arms.
Exploring your past through a past life reading can serve to highlight those old patterns and relationships that our influencing the present… and open the door for healing.
Knowledge of who we were in previous incarnations is given to us – or not – for good reason. When insights into a past life do come, there is a reason why that life is being revealed at this time… When I open a past life reading, I get an image… a snapshot from some other time appears in my mind’s eye… as I follow the thread, a story unfolds.. I rarely have any idea where that image will take me, but the question I hold in the back of my mind is why?, why does my client need to know this story now? There is always a connection… old karma to be cleared, an old pattern to be noticed and finally broken, a relationship to be healed…
How does your past influence your present – and ultimately your future?
