Many people that come to see me often ask if I can connect them with their past lives. Sure I can do that! But guess what? You can connect yourself! It isn’t that complicated if you are able to have a little faith in your own abilities and your own intuition. You may not be able to get exact specifics, or actually see yourself back in time in a psychic sense – but, you will be able to figure out some of the basics. The easiest way to accomplish this and delve into your past lives, is to look for clues in your present life.
First, look at any irrational, obsessive, or quirky types of behaviors or aspects to your life. Look for any facets to your life that have absolutely no rhyme or reason. What do I mean, you ask? Well let me give you some examples from my own life:
When I was at University, I studied German Language – what prompted me to study German?? At the time, I didn’t have a clue! I had never visited Germany and I didn’t even know any German people. In fact, I had never really even heard the language spoken. What was the appeal? Well, I found out about 10 years ago, one of my past lives was in fact in Germany. Too easy to be true you say? Perhaps, but let us keep going.
Here’s another example: In this life I have an incredible fear of horses. It isn’t that I dont like them – in fact, I think they are absolutely magnificent animals – I am just terrified of them. Did something happen to me in this life that would cause me to fear horses? No! Other than two brief experiences in childhood, I have never really been around horses much in this life.
So what is my problem? In a case like this one, I had to take a step back and ask myself, what exactly is it, that frightens me about horses? Well, let me tell you. When I see a horse anywhere in my proximity, I will suddenly become very nervous and anxious, as I am afraid the horse is going to bolt towards me, kick me in the head and/or proceed to trample me to death. I always have this constant unshakable feeling that the horse will run me down for some reason. Hmm past life incident?? I will let you be the judge.
Let us pause here for a moment and review. Okay, I am definitely not saying that wanting to learn to speak German is irrational – please dont get the wrong message! I am also not saying just because you like or are interested in something that it was a part of your past life. It isn’t like you can say, oh gosh I have been obsessed with Elvis since I was a child – I must have been Elvis in a past life! You have to use a bit of discretion, a huge bit of your intuition, and some sleuthing on your part to fit the puzzle together.
Let me give you another example from an American Guy I met when I was in Dublin. I was at the pub in my hotel, waiting for my friend, when I began conversing with two young American guys. As the conversation went on, the one guy began to mention that he was currently studying Japanese language. Since I have a strong background and interest in language and linguistics, I asked him why he choose Japanese. I wanted to know what exactly it was that attracted him to the language. He expressed to me, that similar to my experience with German, he also had never been to Japan and didn’t really have a rhyme or reason for his choice.
After listening to his response, I sat there for a few seconds in thought. Almost as quickly as he had answered the question – I saw a psychic flash of him as a Japanese Kamikaze Pilot. When I told him what I saw, he, being a skeptic of all things psychic, shrugged me off and didn’t pay much attention.
For my own peace of mind and attempting to make sense of my vision, I asked him if he liked traveling and if he enjoyed the experience of flying in an airplane. He immediately tensed up, looked at me sort of angrily and said, I hate to fly all planes lead to death! Okay are you with me here readers? Do you not think that is one of the strangest comments a person can make? Well, not if you were a Kamikaze Pilot in your previous incarnation – then, the comment would be perfectly understandable!
Can you see where I am going with all this? You have to look at clues in your own life! You may not be able to piece together the specifics and figure out exactly what, when or who you were – or actually see yourself psychically as I am sometimes able to do – however, the clues are there! I am not saying that every single like and dislike involves a past incarnation. But, I am saying that if you have some totally irrational fear – like his comment about airplanes – or some really odd passion that seemed to come from nowhere, then chances are, it may have to do with a past life.
Do you always wear your hair in a 1920s style for absolutely no reason? Are you obsessed or interested in some culture other than your own? Do you have compulsions or quirks that have absolutely no rhyme or reason as to their origin? Do you have a natural talent for something that you weren’t really exposed to in this life? Look for clues, then use your intuition to let you know if your actually onto something. If you feel there is something to your intuitive ideas – then more than likely – there is some type of connection!
Finding Your Soul Purpose
Now let us change gears here and touch on present lives a bit. The same concept of looking for clues can also be applied for understanding what your soul purpose and potential is in this life. When you’re a child, you are closest to your incarnation and remembering why you came down to Earth. During your childhood you will most often release those memories of your soul purpose by acting them out through speech, playing or behavior.
Look for clues in your childhood. What did you say you wanted to be when you grew up? What were your dreams when you were a child? Did you used to pretend you were an astronaut and now in adult life you’re a pilot? Did you used to say you were going to help animals when you grew up and now you’re a Vet Tech? Then chances are you are definitely fulfilling part of your soul purpose!
Let us change gears again one final time. If you are unfortunately one of those people who are unhappy and frustrated with your life – perhaps you havent been following your true soul purpose and potential. Were you very outgoing as a child, but the world somehow managed to crush your spirit and now your very shy and reserved? Or perhaps you used to dress up like a movie star and pretended you were famous, but your parents told you it was an unrealistic and to stop acting like a ninny!
Sometimes, well okay most times, it is the actual road blocks from our childhood that we need to overcome to get to our true soul purpose – it is all part of the plan if you know what I mean! I guess what I am trying to say here is, if your feeling stuck and unhappy in your current life direction – go back and revisit your childhood dreams! It is never to late to make changes in your life – especially if it involves what you feel is your true calling!
So remember, if your trying to delve into your past lives or your soul purpose for this life – look for clues, by all means trust your intuition, and as the famous Journey song says don’t stop believing!
(I had to put some corn in there with the Journey song reference! P-: )
As always, I hope your having a groovy day!
