The Eternity of Your Soul, and Reincarnation: 5 Tips to Help You Discover Your Past Lives

Updated on January 25, 2010

The theory of reincarnation has yet to be proven invalid, and if it weren’t for all references of reincarnation being edited out of the bible around 553 A.D. by the initiative of the Ecumenical Council in Constantinople, more Americans would believe in it, just like a large segment of the rest of the world.

Whether you believe or not, the process of past life regression, facilitated by a therapist or through an audio meditation, is a great self-discovery and healing tool. While you won’t be able to bring forth physical evidence, most perceive just how much their past lives (or life circumstances symbolized by subconscious metaphor) are affecting their present lives, and realize how their present lives are a startling mirror for their past lives.

With some helpful guidelines, it’s fairly easy to unearth distinct indications of your possible past lives and difficult, in our opinion (which is based on years of objective empirical research) to find other explanations that make more sense than reincarnation.

Past-life Clues

1) Your interests, likes, and dislikes, especially when there is no logical reason, can give you valuable clues about your past lives. Whatever you like or dislike in someone else, especially if it causes an extreme emotional reaction within you, may be related to past lives.

Do you love to watch old movies with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing? Do you have intense feelings for a Hollywood star who was famous long before you were born? Do they inspire you and can you imagine yourself living in that time period? Perhaps you did.

2) Specific countries, or an area of your home country that you’ve always felt an aversion or attraction to, may indicate happy or unhappy experiences and lifetimes in those places. Have you always wanted to travel to Japan? Do you feel an affinity towards their culture and customs and yearn to be among their people? You may have lived there before.

Does the sound of a South African accent make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up? It could relate to a disagreeable lifetime in that region of the world.

3) Groups—ethnic, race, religion, sexual orientation, or authority figures, for example—that you like or dislike may indicate positive or negative experiences with them in one or more past lives.

Do you feel a sinking feeling in your stomach every time you read or hear about the ancient Pagan religion? Or does talk of the Crusades in the Middle Ages make you strangely uneasy? Maybe you were directly involved in one or more past lives and endured much agony and, or inflicted it. If so, remind yourself that the present is most important, but since the past is still affecting you via your subconscious, mentally forgive yourself and anyone else who may have
been involved.

4) Any phobias or fears you have may relate to traumatic experiences in one or more past lives, especially if there is no logical present life explanation. It’s interesting to note that a past life regression session, back to the root cause, can resolve a phobia, such as aerophobia (fear of flying), even when nothing else worked.

Do you have an unusual fear of earthquakes? Do you avoid any location that is earthquake-prone because you fear the worst? You may have already experienced it.

Did you feel an odd terror when you read about typhoons in Asia? Does the thought of traveling in a small, ocean-going boat under threatening weather make you exceedingly panicky? Perhaps you were swept away in a storm lifetimes ago.

5) Any innate talents you have may indicate that you developed that particular skill in one or more past lives. How else can you explain a child’s inborn, unusual talent for playing the piano, for example, at age 5? Or how about the ability of a 6 year-old to know, with no previous exposure, the names of WW1 airplanes and ships?

While reading this article, you may have wondered about past lives in relation to punishment, and if you are being penalized now. We’ve found this to be a common misunderstanding. In our past life regression research, we’ve learned that nothing you experience in life is a punishment from a “judgmental God” or any other higher power. Instead, you (your soul, not your personality), chose, on a soul level before incarnating, most of your main experiences in order to achieve spiritual understanding. You then have free will so you can react in a positive way and make the most of your life.

      Wow, there's a lot of great, thought-provoking stuff to digest here. I like the idea of being unafraid to truly examine your life with simultaneously spiritual and objective thoughtfulness like this. Thanks, Scott!
