How Can You Remember Your Past Lives
For the most part, unless you are a brand new soul, we’ve all been here before. While there are many people out there who think the concept of a past life is poppycock, some, like myself, understand that life is cyclical. With that said, many of the people who come to me for a reading want to go deeper into their past lives so that they can learn from their spiritual history. Fortunately, there are ways of doing this, so let’s take a look at how we can remember our past lives.
Before we start, it’s important to understand that our true beings are much more luminous than the physical body that we see daily. We are made of spiritual energy and are tethered by a silver string to our physical bodies. When that physical body’s time is up, our true spiritual selves move on to another body, which is the natural and spiritual process of reincarnation. The information in our souls can be accessed through past life readings (like I sometimes give) or can be discovered through the techniques that I am going to outline below.
To do this yourself, you’ll have to be dedicated. It takes work, and sometimes we discover things about ourselves that aren’t very positive. Despite this, I find that delving into your past existence can be truly eye-opening and is often a very positive experience.
We’ve all felt the sensation that we’ve been through certain events before. This is your spiritual self recollecting an event that occurred during a past life. It’s important to latch onto this feeling; you can sometimes even grab images of a previous experience if you concentrate. In any situation, I always suggest carrying around a notebook. When you get a sense of déjà vu, chronicle the feeling. Sometimes, this is all you need to start remembering a bit of your spiritual past. Compiling small bits of information like this can go a long way to helping you learn lessons from your own history.
Embrace the Concept
As I mentioned, many people simply don’t believe in reincarnation. While the concept is present in many cultures and belief systems, some religious edicts completely dismiss the concept entirely. If you truly want to find out more about your past lives, then you’ll have to set these prejudices aside. If you don’t fully believe in the concept of reincarnation, there’s no way that you’ll be able to remember your prior experiences.
Always Trust Your Gut
When something doesn’t feel right, it’s most likely that your spiritual self is trying to communicate that you’ve been in a similar situation in your spiritual past. Trying to learn from these snippets of sensation can help you use your experiences positively in this life.
Meditate on It
I am a huge fan of meditation. You know how some people can’t get through their day without a cup of coffee? That’s how I am with regular meditation. Meditation is a way to open up your pineal eye; the spiritual center that has been called the sixth chakra. This center of your spiritual life has been called by Descartes “the seat of the soul” and it’s through this eye that you can tap into your spiritual self and actually remember your past lives through meditation.
Sit in a room that isn’t too busy and make sure that the temperature isn’t too hot or cold. I personally like to sit in Japanese seiza when I meditate. Make sure that there is as little ambient noise in your environment as possible, though, you can use a white noise generator if that helps your meditation. Maintain calm, while deep and sometimes emotional thought is a good practice for some meditation, I find that it’s best to be more focused when I want a glimpse into my spiritual past.
Lie down and imagine the color white. Everything in your mind’s eye should be simple and endless white. This white is the positivity that shines in our auras when we are emotionally balanced and it will help you grab onto snippets of your past. While focusing on this white light, take deep and measured breaths; I usually do this for a minute or so.
Now, it’s time to embark. Shift your mind’s eye and imagine a road that has several intersections and follows deep into the horizon. Now, walk down that road. Once you reach your first fork, look down that part of the road. At this intersection, take note of all of the sensations that you can. This includes sight, smell, sounds, and emotions. With practice in this type of meditative visualization, you’ll start to experience memories from former lives.
At first, it may just be as sensation. Just because it isn’t a fully formed memory doesn’t make it useless. Sometimes simple sensations are all we need in order to learn about our past. Experience this vision for as long as you can, and once you are ready to complete the experience, open your eyes and write down as much as you can in your notebook.
This experience can lead to some complex experiences, so be patient and always accept what you see; there will be much truth in the experience. I suggest meditating like this at least once a week; you’ll be amazed what you can learn.
