What underground rivers flow beneath your bedrock? Many Past Lives.
Lives that we lived in the past had lessons within them. Sometimes the best way to understand what is happening in this life is to take a look at what went on in our other lives.
A client described her recent Past Life Regression:
I couldn’t believe where this regression took me. I started out as a young girl in a forest, wearing no shoes and raggedy clothes, and I felt very alone and afraid. The trees in this forest were huge, and I couldn’t see out through the canopy. The size and depth of the forest and my young age made me feel small. I knew there was a wolf out there. Then I realized I had a quiver of arrows on my back, and a bow, and I went off to hunt the wolf. Rebecca, through her guidance, moved me forward in time inside the regression and amazingly I had slain the wolf all by myself, with just my bow and arrow. I felt an incredible sense of achievement and confidence from this feat, and the entire experience left me feeling so empowered. I knew I had what I needed to take on the challenges I would encounter. Then I was standing in front of the love of my husband and I felt such a strong love between us, a bond that couldn’t be broken. I am a woman married to a woman in my normal now life, so the fact that I felt this passionate, burning love for this man totally let me know that I was not in this present lifetime! We exchanged no words, because words were superfluous in the face of this love. He looked like a blonde Viking dude! Moving forward I was alone in my house as an old woman, sitting in front of the fire. I didn’t feel alone, because I knew I had family, friends, and community nearby, but I felt a strong sense of contentment that I had these people in my life and yet I could also be alone and feel happy. The accumulation of experiences over my lifetime up to that point left me feeling strong, loved, and satisfied. Taking this lifetime into my current one has left me with many lessons to guide me and confidence that I have what I need within me to meet life. I was struggling with confidence at this time and this past life that I relived totally reversed that momentum.
Recently, one client was reliving a lifetime where the townspeople were not nice, to say the least. She mentioned to me during the regression that she was not in this country. Psychically, I knew it was Romania. After the session, we talked for a bit while she was getting her bearings back in this lifetime. I said, “You were in Romania.” She said, “Yes, how did you know?” Sometimes I am able to see the locations that they go to, and as an empath, sometimes I feel their emotional state while I am also facilitating the journey.
When she was about to be burned at the stake for her work as an herbalist and witch (I mean that in the best way), we were able to remove her from the situation while she was reliving that life. It was a comfort for her to rewrite that lifetime. There were other lessons that came up for her in that lifetime that were important for her to know. Let me put it this way… you think you are making this stuff up, but trust me if you go into it, you’ll see exactly how surprising it is where you end up going.
Another client discovered that she was Queen Victoria in a past life during one of our sessions. Interestingly, in a previous Reiki session with me I had received the name Victoria for her psychically when I was reading her. She wasn’t sure what it meant when we discussed it in that appointment, but after the regression it became very clear. I am always struck by how much courage people have in their present lives and when they delve into the past. It awes me, in fact, to see how amazing people are in so many ways, no matter who they are (or were in a past life). In her past life regression she saw a pattern of leadership opportunities and a certain trial that she is overcoming in her present life. I have noticed many clients return to this lifetime with patterns embedded within them and within their life situations. The messages they receive from their past life regressions provide powerful assistance and understanding to the present day challenges and patterns. They understand these and it moves them forward, past it. How cool is that?
One client, who has a big talent and receptivity for past life regression, has come in for many sessions with me to explore these. The variety of her lifetimes is stunning to me. She is often able to describe location and dates, including her ages as we progress. She has been an man in India who lived a hard, destitute life, working himself to death, trapped in an unfair caste system, an educated woman with a wonderful family where she died of old age, a homeless woman who died alone and cold in the street after losing her business, a field worker in the Caribbean who perished in a storm, and many, many more lives. Each one of these lives that she lived has provided insight to her in her present life. In these regressions she is frequently met with the same loving soul group, persons that she recognizes in her present life, after each passage to the white light, which provides her with comfort and support. It elucidates who, in her present life, is there as a guide. Have these regressions helped her? Yes, they have. She reports feeling more confident and understanding her life situations with more clarity.
Clients have had questions like these come up for them:
What is my purpose with a particular person in my current life? Why do I have this fear? Why am I afraid to have my throat touched? Why am I drawn to a particular country? What is possible? Do I trust myself? Do I trust other people? Am I giving enough? Why do I love this person so much? How do I move past this problem that keeps recurring in my life now? And the list goes on….
While these questions may seem simple, they lead to an enormous system of underground rivers, flowing beneath the surface of one’s emotional and spiritual life. In other words, these questions go very deep if you explore them to find the source of the underground spring.
It is always a surprise where the Regression leads. You may go in thinking you’ll find one thing and yet, you find another. Whatever is discovered is what you are meant to understand at that time.
Negative energetic attachments can be resolved to give you clarity and understanding. You can access this within yourself by working with your higher self energy through sources of healing such as Reiki. We are made of energy, that is why. When we surrender, let go, we allow something larger, greater, and more intelligent assist us.
Past Life Regression can be a companion to energy work. You’re resetting your system and integrating new knowledge. You are releasing energetic attachments. Be gentle with yourself and embrace the changes that come with your new insights.
