I have been wanting to address this topic for awhile now…
Often times we have emotions in our lives that don’t always make sense or connect to our current situations. Sometimes these emotions or feelings are attributed to a past life.
When people hear the term past life it can conjure up many different reactions. Personally, it lends me a measure of perspective.
I have noticed in my own life that when we have an extreme emotion it may often be left over residue from a past life experience. These experiences can be either traumatic, intense or possibly just left a very lasting impression.
Let’s see if I can give an example…
Personally, I have had a past life where I was feared due to my psychic abilities. In this life time I misused this power for revenge and out of anger. I was also very alone and treated as an outcast. When my spirit was designing my life path this time around, I believe cautions were set in place (These cautions are based on the experiences of our past). They are meant to protect us from repeating (at least in this example) the pain I once felt. But, the thing is, for me in this lifetime my experiences are very different. I know that based on my current situation and the culture I live in, that nothing will be experienced in the same manner. The protections are just not needed, instead what is happening is I am self sabotaging and blocking myself out of an unnecessary fear.
For Example, I have struggled with fully embracing my gifts. For the longest time I would get to a certain level and I would stop…I would hit a wall of sorts. Finally after meditating, much work and reflection I have unraveled my personal mystery. The next step for me was to break through this block. To break through I needed to begin by looking into this past life and seeing the pain and loneliness I experienced. I then looked at my current life time to find any similar patterns. Realizing that I was not the same person, that my life was much different than the past life, I needed to heal this part of me. I needed to spend time thanking my spirit for placing the protection into this life time. However; I also explained (to myself/spirit) how this protection no longer served me. I assured my spirit, that I could control my powers of intuition in this lifetime. I was not the same person, and would not repeat the same mistakes. I asked to release this hold.
In this example it is about realizing where a blockage is coming from, breaking it down to the core. Once it has been identified for what it was, releasing it. Just the act of appreciating its purpose and owning the responsibility now can help remove the blockage. It is not necessarily an instant fix, you need to be 100% honest with yourself and that is the hard part. Sometimes we can remove the obstacles, but blockages will still remain. Why? Because unfortunately when we remove the blockage fear of owning ourself steps in and we make excuses. When we have nothing to blame, we seek other excuses then doing the self work needed to move on. We need to stay aware of our actions and motives to continue to grow.
This is just one small touch on a past life experience affecting a current life. I think it is really fascinating to evaluate our lives and see what we carry from current experiences and what we bring with us from past lives. Take a look within and see what you unravel!
