Our personalities are chosen before we’re born, along with lessons to learn, places to go, and people to see.
Your soul comes into each life with plans, goals, and millennia of experience, like a computer that comes out of the box loaded with software, games and apps.
With multiple lifetimes of experience behind it, you’d think your soul would have all the answers. Sadly, that’s not the case.**
Your soul is on a long journey here on the earthly plane, coming back time and time again to pick up new knowledge, and to learn what it is to be human.
If your soul had all the answers, there wouldn’t be much point in the game.
As it is, your soul uses the process of reincarnation to explore every facet of life for the growth it offers. During the process, it bounces from one traumatic event to another like a kangaroo in a minefield.
Are all your past lives awful?
The answer is no. Most of your past lives have been pretty mundane, spent working the land or baking bread in a monastery, interacting with other souls to work on shared agreements, and learning about cooperation and other important aspects of human life.
Though there are techniques to access those more tranquil lives for healing, it’s the dramatic and eventful ones that contain the trauma that so affects you now.
So, they’re the ones that come up most frequently when you’re working to uncover them.
Your soul, in its relentless search for enlightenment, wants to roll up its sleeves when it gets here, and get involved in life. It seeks to explore and investigate. If it didn’t, we’d all still be in Africa chipping arrowheads from bits of flint and not evolving at all.
To ensure maximum growth, your soul creates a plan for each life that includes the places to go, people to meet, lessons to learn, and missions to be accomplished.
The problem is that things don’t always go according to plan. You might have chosen your circumstances—family of origin and location—with the intention of studying mathematics and becoming a teacher. But when your father loses the family home, you get pressed into service in the navy, and die after years before the mast from scurvy. Or maybe you planned to be a doctor, marry a soulmate and raise a family but instead, ended up face down in the mud on a with a bullet in your head.
For a past life to create a fear, phobia, limiting belief, or other block, something has to happen to take you off the path, to radically interfere with your ability to follow your soul’s plan.
It may seem obvious, but death is the big one. Premature appointments with the Grim Reaper take you off the plan like nothing else.
But many other experiences will do the same. Poverty, when it’s not part of the plan, can create huge fears around loss and an awareness that bad things can and do happen. Slavery, again when it’s not something your soul intended, creates a huge resistance to being controlled or having your personal freedom curtailed.
In my experience, the most incredible healing has come from uncovering the past-life source of present-day blocks. I’ve been working on blocks and past life healing for years. I have had numerous lifetimes and I have to deal with this crap or it will cause damage in this life, too.
And the key is always to remind your soul that it can release the fear that whatever terrible thing happened to it 500 years ago is not going to happen again. @Purple …I deeply feel that you could benefit from doing this past life work.
You can uncover 300 traumatic past lives but if you still hang onto that pain, then it didn’t serve its purpose and you’re doomed to repeat it until you deal with it.
My own mother in very ancient times, allowed priests to sacrifice me in a pit sacrifice. This left me with past life pain of abandonment, fear of deep dark places, fear of heights, hatred for religion and a deep fear of Egypt. I followed my mothers soul from life to life several times until I remembered the skills required to take a look back and ask her higher self WTF?! I got my answer. I won’t follow her anymore. She’s still a c*nt, and that’s NEVER going to change because she’s a really young soul. But at least now my confusion is gone. I understand the fears of the dark and high places now. I understand better my hatred for religion and the fact that I was sacrificed to a Pretender made me realize why. I realized how easily people could be swayed by charismatic figures lauding their religions and lying to people all because the voice in their head said so. Back in the day, I’m sure priests fell prey to that.
I have dozens of other stories I could tell. But once you uncover the past lives, and place each event into some part of your current life where you are struggling, some of those struggles melt away.
