Who Was I In My Past Life?

Who Was I In My Past Life?

There is an old saying: To know who you were in a past life, look at how your life is, now. To find out who you will be in a future life, look at how you are living that life.

This adage applies aptly when you want to know who you were in a past life. It is best not to trudge through the remnants of a distant past, slogging through random moments in order to discover little gems from bygone eras. Rather it is good to know that somewhere buried in your subconsciousness lies the memories of pivotal moments which have shaped your personality and have guided you towards the lessons that you are encountering in this life.

You can think of time like a river; running forward, always into the future. But, with the right contraption, let’s say a boat which can traverse such waters, one has the means to travel upstream, against the currents and backward in time. With such a boat, you would be able to rediscover events from the past. They would replay right before your eyes. All you need is a map to locate these pivotal moments.

Mapping Your Journey

Fortunately, that map is something that you carry with you across lifetimes. It is contained within your subconscious and finding a relevant point on that map begins with a simple question. What is the origin of something which you are experiencing in this life? It should be something that you have an emotional attachment to, as that emotion binds your current state with that moment from the past. Let’s say you want to know why your shoulder has had a strange pain for most of your life. Your question could be, “What is the origin of the pain in my shoulder?” Perhaps you want to know why you have such a strong bond with your life partner. You could ask, “What is the origin of my relationship with this person?”

Be aware that you will not have any conscious or rational recollection of this distant point in time. Rather you will have an emotional connection to it. Let that emotion be your compass and lock on to that feeling throughout your journey to come. Soon, what you seek will come to light.

Taking the Journey Across Lifetimes

A simple process for discovering who you were in a past life is below. Read through it a few times, to allow yourself to memorize the process. Or, you can record this in your own voice and play it back like a guided meditation. If you choose to record it, read it slowly and pause for a moment between each line; allow yourself time to experience each section. When it comes to the big reveal, allow a long pause, say a minute or two, so that you have ample time to reflect upon the event transpiring.

Now, Let’s Begin

For this exploration, it is easy to imagine that you are taking a journey backwards, along the river of time. Just close your eyes, let yourself get comfortable and take a few deep breaths to relax. For this exploration, allow your imagination and your emotional connection guide what you see and experience.

With each breath you take, let your conscious mind drift away, and give your subconscious mind permission to take over. No need to think or analyze. Simply oversee and remember.

To begin your journey, imagine that you are standing upon a dock next to the river of time. Perched at the dock lay a boat set and ready to take you on a journey back in time, up the river.

When you are ready, simply step into the boat, sit down, and will it begin to move away from the dock. Your journey has begun.

In your boat, follow the river back through the events of your past. See various events from your childhood that you do remember. As the boat continues to flowing upstream, you will move past the moment of your birth – a time you may not remember.

Now, just up ahead, you will see a tunnel approaching.

As you enter through a tunnel, the boat begins moving at incredible speeds – this tunnel is your conduit between lifetimes. Now is the time to hold on to the emotional connection to what you seek. Feel that emotion and restate the question which has sparked this journey. Why are you here, now?

When you emerge from the tunnel, and into the light, you will see a scene playing out that is from a time previous to your birth in this lifetime.

As the boat comes to a stop, take a few moments to allow yourself to watch the event as it unfolds.

Notice the people in the scene, how they are dressed, what they look like, the colors – you will even notice different sounds and maybe even smells – just take a few moments to observe without judgement.

Do not interact with the scene, nor attempt to understand anything that transpires. Merely observe and remember.

When you are ready, you can set the boat back into motion downstream and back toward the tunnel. When you reemerge, you will see scenes from your childhood of this life progressing forward. As if in fast motion, you move forward in time, past the events you remember, until you reach the present moment. When you have returned to the dock from which you departed, exit the boat and return your awareness to the room you are in.

Finally, when you are ready, open your eyes and quickly write down what you have observed in your experiences on this day.

There you have it. This is very simple and gentle exploration of who you were in a past life. It is important to write down what you experienced as soon as you open your eyes. The longer your mind lingers in the present moment, the greater the chance of details slipping away.

Continuing the Exploration

Do not fret if nothing comes about your first few attempts. This may be a new process for you and building the temporal connection with your subconscious mind is a cumulative effort. Meaning the more you do this, the easier it gets. Feel free to follow this process several times, taking notes and comparing them from each experience. Not only is this a great way to relax, but you are building a connection from your present everyday self with the parts of you that are spread out in various time periods.

If you want to go deeper, a trained professional can help you to explore certain events to a more detailed extent. Sometimes, you may need to unravel unresolved issues which may be causing complications within this life time. It is not recommended to attempt these alone, as one’s own personal biases can further complicate the issues. Seek an independent, trained professional to help you resolve these difficulties. This journey is merely presented as a means of bringing about awareness of the past, not to resolve any lingering issues.

In the meantime, enjoy your exploration, take it lightly and make it fun. You may be surprised what you learn about yourself and the life you have been living.



How To Tell if Your House Is Haunted? 16 Signs To Look For

How To Tell if Your House Is Haunted? 16 Signs To Look For

Are you encountering strange sounds, items disappearing, or lights turning on randomly in your home? These may be telltale signs that your house is haunted. All hauntings are different and can vary from hearing a door slamming occasionally to seeing full apparitions. Commonly believed to occur only in old homes in the middle of the night, as seen in many horror movies, hauntings have also been investigated in new homes and can occur in broad daylight.

Not every mysterious noise or vision has a logical explanation. It’s important to understand if your house is haunted to determine the appropriate steps to take.

Common Signs of a Haunted House

If you noticed these early warning signs, then someone else or something else could be occupying your home:

1. Unexplained Noises

These strange noises can include footsteps, knocking, banging, scratching, or something being dropped. These noises can be subtle, and at other times, they can be quite loud.

2. Doors, Cabinets, and Cupboards Opening and Closing

Very rarely will the experiencer ever witness this phenomenon take place. Most often, the experiencer will hear creaks as a door opens or closes, and when investigated, the door is typically in the opposite position it was previously.

3. Lights Turning Off and On

Lights will turn on and off when the experiencer knows they previously left it on or off. This occurrence is also rarely witnessed. This can also happen to electrically powered devices like TVs and radios.

4. Items Disappearing and Reappearing

This phenomenon is called the DOPler Effect (DOP = Disappearing Object Phenomenon). Experiencers will place an everyday object in a typical spot in the house. Later, when they retrieve that item, it is gone and nowhere to be found after a thorough search. Hours, days, or weeks later, the object reappears in the exact position it was left in before it went missing.

5. Unexplained Shadowy Figures

Fleeting shadows are normally seen out of the corner of your eyes. These shadows typically take human forms, also known as Shadow People, while at other times, they are less distinguishable or smaller.

6. Strange Animal Behavior

Dogs will sometimes bark at something unseen, cower without reason, or refuse to enter a room they normally do. While cats seem to be watching something move about the room. Animals do have sharper senses than humans, and many researchers feel their psychic abilities are allowing them to notice this behavior quicker and better.

7. Feelings of Being Watched

Many people tend to get the feeling of being watched throughout the day, but if the feeling is consistently occurring in a specific part of the house at a particular time, it may be attributed to supernatural forces.

Stronger Signs of a Haunted Home

These next signs are rarer paranormal activity but could be stronger proof of a haunting:

8. Mild Psychokinetic Phenomena

Actually seeing a door open or close, a flickering light bulb, or a child’s toy turn on by itself. Others state they can hear or feel something sitting on the bed next to them.

9. Feelings of Being Touched

Some feel something brush past them, touch their hair, or a “hand” on their shoulder. Others can feel a gentle poke, push, or nudge.

10. Strange Sounds

Some can hear voices, whispering, crying, or even music from an unknown source.

11. Notable Temperature Changes

Cold spots in your house are one sign that your home could be haunted.

12. Unusual Smells

A fragrance of perfume or cologne that does not exist in your house. This phenomenon may be accompanied by shadows, voices, or psychokinetic phenomena.

Powerful Signs of a Paranormal Presence

Poltergeist activity is rare but is the strongest evidence of a true haunting:

13. Severe Psychokinetic Phenomena

Some instances of this phenomenon include plates sliding off the table, pictures flying off the walls, doors slamming with great force, or furniture sliding across the floor.

14. Physical Assault

This type of phenomenon is very rare but includes scratches, slaps, and hard shoves.

15. Other Physical Evidence

This can include unexplained writing on paper or walls, handprints, and footprints.

16. Apparitions or Ghostly Figures

This very rare phenomenon is a physical manifestation of a spirit or entity. These human-shaped forms can be seen as mist, transparent, or solid.

My House is Haunted, Now What?

If you suspect that your house is haunted, you have several options. Firstly, consider keeping a journal to document any unusual occurrences and their frequency. It may also be helpful to consult with a reputable paranormal investigator or psychic medium to assess the situation and provide support. Furthermore, you can perform cleansing rituals or prayers to create a sense of peace and protection in your home. Finally, if the paranormal activity persists and you feel unsafe, consider relocating to a new residence. Yes, this is particularly challenging for homeowners, but the alternative is having an evil spirit for a roommate.

Communicating with Spirits and Risks

While communicating with spirits can be tempting, it’s essential to approach such interactions with extreme caution due to the real-life dangers involved. Engaging in practices like using Ouija boards or participating in séances can open channels to the spirit world, inviting not only communication with loved ones but with negative energies or malevolent entities. Bad encounters can lead to emotional distress, psychological instability, or spiritual attachment if proper precautions are not taken. So, it’s crucial to be mindful of one’s intentions and boundaries when attempting to communicate with spirits and seek guidance from paranormal experts to ensure your safety.
