Let me speak using an example of what happened to me, i have always had visions & flashes of my past lives the earliest i remember was probably around age 4ys i had strong images & emotions connecting me back to medieval times & places, also always having a deep connection & fascination with Egypt,Atlantis, ect. But the lives that have personally knocked me for six, are truly out of this word literally I have always had a sense that the greater part of my soul had another place that i called home, I'm talking off world, as in up there!! I have always felt this inner language, one that i call the Language of Love & Light or (Star Language) it wasn't till i was 21 that i met others that could also speak it we could understand each other too!!
Another experience probably the one that created the most impact & understanding in my life, occurred around a similar time, I met a man i recognised from 2 past lives 1 of the lives we shared was not on earth, this was our strongest connection, we lived on a planet similar to the moon, but it had temples on it like the Mayan temples here on earth, they had fertility rituals there similar to the medieval Beltane rights, there were couples everywhere participating in fertility ceremonies it was a great honour, to cut a long story short the two life’s i remembered had the same theme both in which i was deeply in love, only to be left by my partner without any notice devastated & sometimes with children, this put a pain in my heart & soul one that remained even in this life (unexplainable as we were only together a short time). The visions & feeling this evoked were so so strong that when we were alone talking together his face would transform & the room would totally disappear i was transported off world gone for hours at a time, it was magical!!
It came to a point where that inner voice was to hard to ignore it was almost like my higher self was yelling, this i could not ignore i had to trust in it, so i ended it! magical as it was i could see a cycle, i believe if you see a cycle, life & karma are trying to tell you something, when i hopped of the karma train, my life got lighter i started to see more of who i was as a soul i saw my patterns in this life & in my others lives. Unfortunately for the guy in this story things got a bit shaken up (to put it lightly), this is what can happen when you throw a spanner into the works of karma!!
Why am i telling you all this, because what I have learnt from this was some of the most valuable information to date, it has taught me to be strong & trust my own deepest intuition more that anything. Looking into past life can be a deeply healing spiritual experience.
