Past Lives: The Past in the Present

Past Lives: The Past in the Present

Sometimes I wonder if any of the relationships in my life are really “new”. There are so many odd connections that I have to believe there is old karma from past lives that draws us together in the first place.

My friend Azizi is a wonderful example of what I mean. She came for a reading almost 10 years ago. The next time she came, about a year later, I was suffering with a terrible haircut. She reminded me that she’s a hair stylist and told me she could fix it for me, promised me a good cut. A week or so later, I got that cut and have been going back ever since – she “gets me” and my hair… but that is only one part of our relationship. In the months between the readings, I came to notice that I was a little lonely… In Toronto it seemed that my house had a revolving door. There was a constant coming and going of clients and friends dropping in. With the move to London we settled into a much quieter life with family and clients – for awhile.. I was finally ready to pick up the pace a bit when Azizi came for her second reading. In fact I had been meditating and praying for weeks to attract some new friendships. So when she suggested that I join her and a few friends for dinner at day’s end, I immediately agreed. Little did I know – at least consciously – that Azizi has a social director in her and was hooking me up with a whole group of wonderful friends. What started as a group of four out for dinner has now become a group of 30 or more who gather for dinner, the Solstices, birthdays, Equinoxes, the holidays, or just because it’s a beautiful sunny day.

Whatever my karma is with Azizi, it must be good. She appeared in response to a prayer. I would trust her with my life. She is a wonderful mother, businesswoman and friend. Yet we are not what one might call “close.” The best I can say is that there is a kind of “knowing” between us that goes beyond the present. I haven’t bothered to suss out the past life connections, doesn’t seem necessary, but I’d be willing to put money on the fact that Azizi has played a role in opening up other social circles for me in times long ago.

At one point in my development as a psychic some quite dark past lives came flooding in on me, bringing with them many painful memories and old energy that was pretty scary at times. I understood that my spirit guides were taking me through a healing process so that I could clear some of the karma that hung with me from those lives. I realized also that all the soul work was leading me into a potentially deep depression. In meditation one day, I wondered despairingly if all of my lives had been just about pain, suffering and loss. I had been focusing on a crystal ball beside me during the meditation, but had been so tuned inwards that I was shocked to see an awesome movie unfolding in front of me in the ball… I was approaching a large gate, and could hear an old man chuckling as he shuffled towards the gate, kids laughing and teasing him as he went… When the gate opened, I was faced with a wizened old Chinese man in a grey tunic, smiling and inviting me in. His first words were “I am you, let me show you the life you led here.”. At first I thought he was the gatekeeper, but then it became obvious that he had built this beautiful sprawling compound and that the children laughing and playing all around were his grandchildren. He took me to the kitchen to meet my/his wife. She was shelling peas outside the kitchen, laughing because they had sent her away with this big bowl of peas to make herself useful – she insisted on doing “something”… when I looked into her shining black eyes, the word Mom? arose like a question in me…those eyes ae unistakable… and then she winked, yes, it’s me. For the next hour or so, this lovely old man, me, told me all about his life in that time, a wonderful life. He talked of how he chose his wife, my mother, and how they began building with their bear hands on a property that the family had given as a wedding present. He fathered four strong loving men, and with his wife had created a large and noisy family. He had been honoured in many ways in that life for his inventions, but more importantly for setting an example in his community… apparently his farming ways had made him prosperous while the warlords around him suffered… one by one, they dropped their battles to farm and taking care of their families and their lands… he led a time of prosperity in China, apparently was the first to create rice paddies and the irrigation systems that supported them. He was at the end of his life when he invited me into his home, had spent his waning years building a small school and studying alchemy and physics. In the last scene, he took me with him to his bedroom where he laid down on a simple mat and closed his eyes… to die, peacefully, contented. I watched in amazement as his wife and his daughter bathed and dressed him with great tenderness. One by one, his family came to him, laughing, joyful, celebrating his good life, honouring him with their laughter even in his death…

So much of this story made sense to me – to this day, now 83, Mom has to be doing “something,” can’t stand to sit around while others work. It was a great relief, in the present, to connect with the contented energy of that life some 3000 years ago. Years later, I felt this story affirmed in a funny way. One day when Mom and I were out picking strawberries, we saw a sign to pick peas, so we decided to go for it. Between us, we picked almost a bushel … we have laughed many times since then over the fact that we didn’t think of how long it would take us to shell all those peas… the next year, we paid to have the machine do the shelling. What was interesting about this story is the connection with my mother. We have always worked well together, even when we disagreed.

Connecting with your past lives can be very helpful in explaining the “why’s” of certain relationships and events in our present lives. We have a way of repeating the past. Knowing about the patterns can help us to break them, to free ourselves of the associated karma .Bringing this 3000 year-old life forward into the present meant a great deal to me. It carried with it a loving peace, an ability to see myself and my present circumstances in the context of my soul’s journey. Feeling the good karma from that life helped me to mitigate some of the pain in other past lives so I could release myself to press forward in the present…

New/Old Relationships

Says, Anthony , Global Psychics’ past life specialist:

Revelations of who we were in previous incarnations are given to us or not for good reason. The Buddha was said to recall all details of 1000 of his previous lives in an instant. Clearly we are not Buddha yet. You may ask why you can’t remember. I’ve come to know there is a kindness in spirit, in having us forget some details. As one or two lifetime’s details can be burden enough for our minds. Certain information from previous lives can affect current lessons we may be learning. When you do get insights into a past life, the reason is all in the why….why is it revealed …why now.?

  • It may comfort you to show you, you have been through something before.
  • Give you perspective on current situations you are in that are a result of karma created in another life.
  • Remind you of your true essence and self.
  • Open a door for hope and healing.

The purpose of all experience – human and spiritual – in all lives – past, present, and future – is to refine the character of our soul so that we may become better co-workers with spirit. Experience is greatest, best, and only real teacher of truth. In past lives, hopefully we have determined what did not work and what did. We learned what did not allow us to become more loving and what did. We discovered what did not serve our development and what did. We repeat situations until we have become refined enough to become the solution to them. The goal is to bring ourselves into greater levels of love and awareness and closer workers with spirit and contribute to the collective experience of spirit.

As we evolve, we will choose to work with others through various lifetimes and in various roles – thus the sensation of soul-mates that comes up in so many relationships. People from our past often reappear in the present. Usually for a good reason.

As a young child I remember having a very vivid dream. I dreamt I was in Spain and wore a long dress made of different coloured fabric. It took me years to realize that this didn’t actually happen and that it was a dream – I had never been to Spain . I now have a 7 year old daughter, who from a very early age pretends to speak another language – always insisting that she is speaking Spanish. When my daughter was born and I first looked at her, my first thought was “If I knew it was you….” and had an overwhelming feeling of KNOWING her. I know there are mother/daughter ties etc, but I do have a younger daughter and never had that same feeling. Is it possible that my eldest daughter and I knew each other in a past life? In Spain ???? Delene

Absolutely there is a past life connection. It is obvious to me that you and your eldest daughter have known one another before. I did the same thing to my mother. I spoke a different language to her and often asked her what the words (language) that we used to use. She often was able to match up the English words with our past life language. This daughter is very important to you. Keep her safe & close to you. You might want to learn Spanish! Love, Light, & Laughter, Christopher Ree

I’ve had a couple of strange experiences which have left me wondering about past lives. My first experience was when I started going to the local gym. The man who taught me how to use the equipment was originally from Scotland . At first, there was nothing strange. Soon, as I trusted him to help me (I suffer from M.S. but am still, thankfully, mobile) if I needed to know anything about the equipment or fix it for me, I suddenly realized that all I had to do was look over to where he was sitting – usually his desk – and he immediately came over to help. We seemed to be able to communicate telepathically. Even if we met in the corridor of the leisure centre where the gym was located, all we had to do was look at each other and we knew what the other was thinking. He knew my name was Jacqueline as it was on my membership card, but he never called me Jacqueline – always Janette. Don’t ask me why, but I got some sort of feeling about a deceased elder sister when he was just a toddler. Could this have been ‘Janette’ or could both of us been soul partners in a past life together. If it was a case of Reincarnation – was I sent to make sure my baby brother was ok in this life? Strange – I have child sized hands, child sized feet, a child-sized head and even a small mouth (my dentist had to use a child-sized x-ray plate every time he x-rayed my teeth as an adults x-ray plate was WAY too big – even when I was in the Intensive Care Unit in the hospital, they had to use child-sized incubation tubes during and after major surgery). When I first heard the song The Skye Boat Song I immediately had this ‘dream’, ‘flashback’ or whatever it could be described as. I was on this small ferry which they use in over there. I was standing looking over into the sea. Beside me was a lady holding a buggy with a baby boy inside. On a bench behind that sat a man. We were looking at the lovely cliffs and the sea as we were coming into the small harbour. On the harbour key was a lovely old lady who I referred to as Granny. I have never been to the Isle of Skye and at that time I’d never even seen a program about the Isle on TV. When I did see a program about it, it was exactly as was in my ‘dream’. Could I have been Neil’s big sister who later took ill and was comforted by him even though he was just a toddler, or could, both of us been soul partners in a previous life to meet as friends in this one. Jacqueline

Yes, all the possibilities that you write about could very well have transpired. We would need to open a past life reading to be able to affirm your thoughts, but my sense is that you are probably near right.. at the very least, there was another life when you were close to this man and your name in that life was probably Janette… Hope that helps some, Lotsa LLLove, Danielle

Anthony, our past life specialist came upon a fascinating story in one of his readings. Here is an excerpt from the reading he gave:

Spirit shows the heaviest of rain, falling on a small village of huts. I’m shown a woman and family huddled inside, the man of the hut sorts some long sticks in the corner of the hut, the woman tends to her mother, and children. The woman’s mother is very sick. So she comforts her, spirit shows her feeling as though she really is helping her mother get through the pain of the illness. As she strokes her mother’s hair and rubs her back, she sees her mother has become still, she and her children begin to weep, knowing that the grandmother was gone. They call out to other huts in the village. Spirit now showing a ceremony where they lay her to rest over a huge fire. There is drumming and chanting as they say farewell to a member of their tribe.

My guide says the woman of the hut who tended so lovingly to her mother is a previous incarnation of your soul. This is 27 lives ago. You are a very old and wise soul.

Anthony explains: At the time of the reading, in the woman’s current life her mother was not at all ill or sick. However in six months time she found herself at the hospital bedside of her mother who was very ill. Her mother said she felt horrible. The daughter stroked her mothers hair, and rubbed her back, her mother said thank you, that she had made her feel better and she had a flashback to the reading I gave, and at that moment her mother took her last breath.

Sometimes spirit reveals a past life to prepare us for what is to come, to show us that we have been there before and that we will get through the dark times. Spirit reveals that this woman and her mother have had lives together before, and saw each other off to the other side before. Spirit shows they have been together life after life, and on some level they always felt it, and perhaps they will again in the next life. Spirit does at times bring hope, comfort and preparedness. So many of us are connected through lessons, and the choice our souls make to help one another with lessons. This energy, continues to flow from life to life, often with the same souls. And sometimes a soul will choose to be separated from its circle of souls and be heavily challenged, a lonely road, but also deep wisdom can be gained from that as well.
