Do you believe you have lived before? More and more people are starting to accept the idea of reincarnation. Have you ever met someone for the first time and felt an instant rapport with them? Have you or someone you know had an amazing talent since a young age? Have you ever felt very attracted to another country despite never having been there in this lifetime? Or, have you instantly disliked someone the first time you met them and have no idea why? Perhaps you have a fear of water or some other phobia and have no explanation for why you have this fear. The answers to all of the above questions may be found in a past life.
You may not be aware of this, but early Christianity did not reject the notion of reincarnation. It was not until the emperor Constantine convened the Council of Nicea, that the idea of reincarnation was removed from the religion. The belief in reincarnation actually lasted until about 553 A.D.
Many countries accept the idea that we have lived before. What if you have lived before? Would you like to know who you may have been? Would you like to know if you had some talents in a previous life? Perhaps you can even bring back some of these talents by going to one of your previous incarnations.
As an example, suppose you are struggling with anxiety or fear in this lifetime. Wouldn’t it be terrific if you could go back to a life where you were quite brave or courageous and actually bring back some of that courage with you? This actually is possible. Perhaps something traumatic happened to you in a previous life. If you are familiar with Dr. Brian Weiss, he tells the story of one of his patients who had terrible fears and anxieties, and especially fear of water. She also had choking sensations. When she went to a past life, she found out that she and her baby had died in a Tsunami. Once she learned what had happened to her, she was able to let go of many of the fears that she had been holding on to. Dr. Weiss stated that he had used psychoanalysis with this person for three years and it did not help. When he did the past life therapy, however, she was able to overcome her problems.
So much can be learned by experiencing past lives. Perhaps you can’t get along with a parent, spouse, or sibling despite all your efforts. It may be that this person did something unkind to you in a previous lifetime, and you are still holding on to the anger from that incident. Finding out what happened in a previous life could be extremely liberating for you.
You may be wondering what the purpose of reincarnation is. There are many possible explanations: helping you to accept full responsibility for your choices and your actions; understanding your true nature and who you really are; understanding and accepting others; freeing yourself from all limitations; and learning lessons from your experiences in order to gain wisdom.
There are many reasons you might like to experience a past life. You might want to know how many past lives you have lived, or which lifetime this one is for you. Is there someone in this life that you knew in a past life? Is there a lesson from a past life that would help you in this life? Is a talent/skill/ability from a past life one that you now have? Perhaps you are wondering if there was a talent/skill/ability from a past life that you could cultivate now. You may find an answer to why you have a fear or a phobia in this lifetime, or discover how to resolve old karma. You could gain insights into a medical condition. You may learn something from a past life that could explain problems in a relationship in this lifetime. Finally, you may learn something from a past life that can explain how you feel about yourself now.
As you can see, there are many reasons to experience a past life. If this is something you are interested in pursuing, please contact Phil Rosenbaum at the Self-Esteem Academy for more information. Call: 248-688-6469.
