One of my favorite tools in my spiritual tool box is past life therapy.

If you are anything like me, you are probably dealing with past life baggage too.

We drag the emotional wounds and relationship dynamics around with us from lifetime to lifetime.

Often repeating the same pattern and struggles until we find a way off the merry-go-round.

Past life therapy, readings and explorations can help you resolve the issues once and for all.

There are a few ways to approach this this work...

Past life regression and past life readings are two ways I work with my clients on resolving past life issues that are plaguing them in their current life.

With past life regression, I use hypnosis to take you back to the cause of the issue you wish to resolve.

I use a form of spiritual hypnosis that connects you with your higher self, guides and angels, so that you can really understand what set the situation in motion and why you are still holding on to it energetically.

Not everyone is comfortable with the idea of being hypnotized, though. In those situations, I tap into your past lives through your aura or the Akashic record, after receiving your permission to do so.

Your higher self and guides then show me the lives that are intersecting in this lifetime. They show me which ones are affecting the situation and are the true cause of what you are dealing with. You can ask questions and I receive or retrieve answers for you.

My clients find past life work to be very enlightening and often quite liberating.

It definitely has been for me.

The Answer May be Buried in Another Lifetime

Pyramid and SphinxWhen I felt stuck and unable to move forward, or when I realized I was trapped in a bad or dysfunctional relationship the answer was always found buried in a past life.  

Once I understood the true cause at the heart of the situation, behavior or belief that I was struggling with, and grasped what actions of mine, or lack of actions, had set it all in motion, I could allow myself to finally release the pain and judgments, forgive all involved and move forward.

It is so empowering when you realize, understand and accept the root cause of a problem, whether it is internal or external. 

This makes it easier to let it go. You get it… like an “aha” moment. You can choose to heal and release it and improve the quality of your life. 

Issues around betrayal, abandonment, guilt, shame, food, work, money, relationships, love, sex, your body, irrational fears, victimhood, sacrifice, and abuse are frequently carried over from past lives.

So are strong beliefs, heavy emotions (anger, hate, rage, revenge, blame) and ingrained behavior patterns. 

Sometimes a past life issue can manifest as a tendency to think and behave a certain way but doesn’t interfere too much with your daily life.

  • You might avoid or feel uncomfortable around large bodies of water (ocean, lake, river), even though nothing ever happened around water to you or anyone you know.
  • You might avoid tight or confined spaces; the thought of being stuck in an elevator may make you feel a little sick.
  • You might feel attracted to a specific culture, type of food or language, even though you have no history or experiences with them.

Other times it is a serious handicap.

  • You might think you don’t deserve a successful career or a happy relationship
  • You might have irrational and debilitating fears, such as a fear of drowning, or dying in a fire or a plane crash.
  • You may keep attracting the same toxic relationship over and over and over.

Past life issues may show up in the work that you do, the people you interact with, the way you live, the choices you make, and even in your physical body.

Here are a few ways an unresolved past life issue may affect your physical body in this life:

  • Severe lung problems in this life may have been caused by previous life as a heavy smoker who died from lung cancer or a coal miner who died from black lung.
  • You might have birthmark that is a replica of a serious or fatal past life injury. (I have birthmark on my lower abdomen that is the shape of a spear wound I received as a Native American warrior.)
  • You may have mocked heavy people in a former lifetime, so in this lifetime you chose to be overweight to experience it from the opposite perspective.

In addition to the issues we are resolving in this lifetime, we also bring in gifts and talents from other lifetimes.

Basically once you’ve learned how to do something you carry that ability forward. It might be dormant however. These might be special abilities, skills, knowledge, wisdom, and awareness that you developed and mastered over many lifetimes. You may be aware of some of these and others may be latent, waiting for the appropriate time for you to call them into action in your present life.

Clearing the Issue and Releasing the Baggage

If you respond to situations in your life with blame, guilt, shame, and negativity, you are not learning the lesson you intended to learn.

If you respond to issues and situations with love, compassion and positive thoughts, and forgiveness, you’ll shift the past life issue and let go of years and lifetimes of baggage.
