Here is part two in a three part series of what I’ve learned so far about past lives.

During my studies in past life regression, I have asked myself the following question repeatedly: Why do some people feel drawn to exploring their past lives, and healing them, while others are not?

Here are the reasons for a soul feeling drawn to explore past life healing:

1. The soul has many earthly lifetimes that need healing

Some souls only have a few lifetimes here on earth, while others choose to incarnate here time after time.

Whether or not you incarnate here frequently depends on your soul’s group of origin – some soul groups definitely incarnate here more than others.

The soul groups that incarnate here frequently include the Blueprinters, Mintakans and Sirians, and these are the groups which often benefit from past life work.

Soul groups such as the Nihals, Mission Realmers and Arctureans, may not need past life work, as they either often incarnate here infrequently or only started to incarnate here very recently.

(If you’re interested in finding out your soul group, you might like to have an Akashic Record reading done.)

Onto another reason why someone may benefit from past life healing work:

2. The soul is nearing the end of a karmic cycle/life lesson

Depending on how old our souls are, and how experienced we are in the incarnation game, we usually have several core life lessons that we’ve been working on in the past, to varying levels.

The central life lessons/themes that we explore here on earth are the ones that relate to the seven main chakras:

Survival (root)

Abundance (sacral)

Power (solar plexus)

Love (heart)

Courage (throat)

Truth (third eye)

Faith (crown)

These central life lessons can often take many, many lifetimes to complete.

Within those central themes, there will be many other sub themes/life lessons, which take a few – several lifetimes to complete. For example, within the life lesson of love, we have the sub lessons of compassion, Divine Love, healing, self-love or unconditionality. Within the theme of power, we have sub themes such as dependence, self-determination, or surrender.

During any given lifetime, we usually choose one primary life lesson and several secondary life lessons.

The life lesson you choose affects the events that show up during the course of your lifetime. It also affects the family that you choose to be born into, and the relationships that you choose. The life lesson is like the thread that underlies your experiences in any given lifetime.

When we have explored a core theme (such as love or faith) a lot in the past, we usually have a strong chakra that relates to that theme. If you have explored many themes related to love, it will show in your strong heart chakra, which will be an asset in your life. Giving another example, those who have had many lifetimes with a strong spiritual/religious theme will often show up with a strong crown chakra (basically, a strong connection to Spirit/God.) This is true for many of my clients and students.

Past Lives and Healing

Within each central life lesson, old souls, in particular, will have accumulated traumatic experiences that need clearing.

For example, if you’re born into this lifetime with a small root chakra (as I was), then you will probably have many past life wounds relating to survival. Likewise, a soul who has a weak throat chakra may have past life wounds relating to fears of expressing oneself.

By clearing these soul wounds, it reduces the likelihood that we will need to encounter them in our next lifetime and aids our soul’s progress.

Are you nearing the end of a life lesson?

Right before we get to the end of exploring a core or sub theme, we often go through one or more ‘integration’ lifetimes, when we get serious about our past life healing work. The most prominent sign that this is happening could be when your primary life lesson is moderation or balance. This can also show in a person’s astrological chart.

(My colleague Jay Linden, professional astrologer and past life regressionist, recently explained that in astrological terms, people who are at the beginning of a life lesson/theme, usually start at one end, exploring one aspect of it, then they explore the opposite, and go back and forth for a while until they build a bridge between the two and the theme is mastered at a high level.)

Taking the example of power, to learn this lesson, one may have experienced abusing power (the universal archetype of the abuser) and being powerless (the universal archetype of the victim), and then we reach the stage where we learn about the middle path, essentially creating a bridge between the two opposites and coming to a place of balanced personal power.

Giving another example, in the life lesson of faith, a soul may, during one or more incarnations, have too much faith, then may not have enough in another lifetime. Through the opposites such as these, the soul learns about what it means to have faith in a balanced way.

The souls who are coming towards the end of a core or a sub life lesson in this way will usually be the people who can benefit from doing past life work.

Those who have had fewer lifetimes, or those who are in the middle of a theme or at the start of it, might not need this kind of healing as much.

So if you feel the pull towards doing past life healing, know that it will be your soul telling you something.

To those who are interested in exploring this type of healing further, I will be finishing my past life regression training within the next few months, and would love to work with you later on this year.
