Many (spiritual) people tend to get bogged down with what they perceive to be past-life experiences, and end up re-living those past lives to the detriment of the present. We are here and now, in this world, in this body, and dwelling on the past is largely a waste of time and energy.
If you really want to get to the bottom of it, ask these questions:
- How does recalling this past life serve me?
- What am I learning from it?
In a previous blog post, I mentioned that we don't actually have "negative" beliefs, instead every belief we have, or experience we're going through, serves us in some way, and I believe, finding what that is is the key to understanding a situation. Once you understand the reason, you can choose to let it go, but if it still serves you, you may not want to.
Why are you even being made aware of these past-lives? In my experience, people often only become aware of these past-life experiences as they develop spiritually, and sometimes this can be overwhelming for them. However, if you choose to look at it slightly differently, perhaps this can ease your burden:
I believe that you only become aware of past-lives when you have developed the skills to deal with them. This doesn't necessarily mean you have to process it on your own, but maybe you will come across someone that you feel can help you.
Past-lives cannot physically hurt you and identifying their lessons (good or bad) and accepting them for what they taught you, will allow you to move on free of any former burden.
Is it time to forgive yourself for something you feel you did in a past-life?
