(OMTimes | Arien Smith) Many of us believe that we all travel through many lifetimes, time periods, and situations through a process of reincarnation. Even those of us who doubt this concept recognize there is merit in the symbolism of past life memories. Beyond just being interesting, what makes these memories so important to uncover in our current lifetimes?
Do you remember any of your past lives?
Past lives are one of the easiest ways to understand our current pains, egoic patterns, and repeating life situations. We all know what it’s like to feel stuck in a cycle. A bad situation seems to keep repeating, without any clear answer of how to escape it. Fortunately, past life memories give us a new insight into these seemingly inescapable patterns. When we view these memories, we are easily objective. This makes it much easier to examine what is going on than it is to have honest introspection directly towards a current stressful situation.
“Hindsight is always 20/20.”
Notice how the farther we look back in our current life, the clearer the insight? Past life memories work exactly like this. We are more distanced from the emotions of the past, besides vital empathy, so we can objectively examine the cycles of these past lives.
The Akashic Records (the energy body holding all our past life memories) open us up to specific past life experiences. They always arise with meaning. This meaning caters directly to us and our needs right here, right now. It always is symbolically carrying a lesson we need to learn presently to uncover a solution. This could relate to present pain, because this issue existed in previous lifetimes and has yet to be resolved. We might clearly understand the root of such pain, like a traumatic event, that mirrors something similar in our current lifetime. We might see how this cyclical pattern happened in the past. We may recognize what we need to do differently to avoid a painful outcome.
How can past life memories help us?
Past life memories often help with our relationships. Let’s say that our current partner is emotionally distant. We just can’t seem to get through to them. We are concerned that it could mean the end of our relationship, or that things are slowly starting to unravel. Consulting the Universe directly through the Akashic Records and our past lives might help us uncover how to heal this current concern. Many people in our current lifetimes, especially those we love deeply like our partners, have lived past lives with us. It is most definite that this current concern occurred in a previous lifetime.
In this example, perhaps we look into our past lives and recall a relationship with our partner’s past self, where they were similarly growing distant. In this lifetime, we watched them grow distant until we snapped with frustration. After we had snapped in this past life, they explained that they had been dealing with some repressed childhood traumatic memories. We just needed space. Our anger at them was the opposite of what they needed and damaged our relationship. In a second past life, we realized we talked with them about their emotional distance, compassionately expressing our concern and desire to help and understand. They shared again that they were dealing with some childhood anguish in this lifetime and that this was exactly the support they needed. Our empathy and connection deepened drastically.
Past lives hold insight for this lifetime
Through the insights from both of these past lives, we then have a clear answer of how to approach our partner currently. We know not to snap, but instead to have a clear and open dialogue with them, expressing genuine love and concern. Through past life memories, we can find the solution for a present life concern.
Our past life narratives are often more individualized and complicated than this example. However, the possibility to learn about repeating patterns and compassionate solutions is infinite and accessible. It just takes some honest discernment, evaluation, and a readiness to dive into our past lives to learn all of these important lessons. Personally transcendent meditation, or working with a trusted reader of the Akashic Record, is an amazing way to heal any issues you are facing currently.
