Have you ever wondered if you have lived other lives before this current life? This is a question I hear almost daily in my trade as a Metaphysical Practitioner. My belief is that we have all lived many lives before this one, and that we will live many more. My belief is not necessarily aligned with simply reading about past lives experiences or watching documentaries, but by my own personal experiences and the experiences of the clients that I have worked with. There is just too much evidence in my own life and practice to think that remembering other lives is simply a trick of the light, or just our vivid imagination.
I wanted to talk about reincarnation based on the most popular belief systems. The basic premise is that God, or the source, or whatever you believe that is, creates a soul, and charges them with learning and evolving before returning to the source. Once a life has been experienced, a soul will transition to a life between lives, for a review to figure out if the lessons chosen were successfully fulfilled. Sometimes we must return simply to relearn certain lessons, but we always return even if it is to experience new lessons. In this life between lives, we also make decision about who we will be, what we will experience, and even draw up contracts with other souls before reincarnating.
The lives that we live can be wide and varied, and it is generally accepted that we must learn to be everything, every culture, every race, every gender, and in some cases, everything else to include rocks, trees, and animals. I personally have not had any experiences amongst myself or my clients that have been rocks, trees, or animals, but I have had a very big variety of species, along with lives on other planets, spaceships, and other dimensions. Additionally, we can also be the bad person or the good person in these lives, simply because we must be able to experience all aspects of life to evolve as a soul.
Many times, we carry over issues from life to life and are simply unaware. I have found, in my work, that issues get carried over to our current lives due to the way we died, unresolved issues, certain experiences, and possible karma that is carried over. For example, someone may be extremely afraid of going in the water but has no reason in the current life for that to be the case, but in regression it will likely be discovered that they drowned in one of their past lives. Someone may be extremely overweight, and I may find that they starved to death in a previous life. Past life regression is a very effective way of discovering some of these hidden issues, so that a person in their current life can begin to let go of issues that are no longer relevant.
The hypnosis technique that I was trained and certified in, utilizes past life regression as a springboard to jump into the hypnotic state, and I have found this to be a very effective method. In the 40 plus years of the development of this hypnosis technique, the founder was able to complete research on the patterns and similarities that she witnessed as she performed this technique all over the world; her research validated the beliefs of reincarnation and past lives, certainly for me and my clients. I am not writing this article to convince anyone about past life, but to provide some food for thought, and perhaps get you to think differently about your current life. Why to you have the fears you have? Why are you the way you are? Of course, the past experiences of our current life can affect is in many subconscious ways due to the way we were raised, who are parents were, traumatic events, etc. However, it nice to be able to separate the issues you are having between the past of your current life, and the past lives you have lived.
I think we would all agree that our past is what shapes us into who we are today. If you are feeling stuck and/or unhappy with your current situation, then the best way forward may be looking back.
