This week I had 3 clients and all of them came to see me primarily for proffesional orientation. They wanted to know which occupation suits them the best, as they were on crossroads, and wanted to choose the most benificial occupation. Client #1 was an "empty nester", a woman in late 40s whose children are all grown and left for college. She was finnancially comfortable, as her husband had a well paid job, but she felt bored and restless, and looking for a job or business of her own. Client #2 was an 18 year old high school graduate, multi-talented young man, the session was gifted to him by his aunt for his 19th birthday, and both him and his aunt said that he is clueless about what career path to choose. Client #3 was a military man in his late 30s, finishing his contract with the Army, and wondering about future civilian career. All of them were shown past lives, some were related to future carriers, some were related to to their medical issues. But in all these sessions we connected with their Higher Self and Guids and got guidance on their life purpose and most benificial occupations. The Empty Nester was shown past life as a Priestess in Atlantis, where she was working with crystals, and healing people and she was shown that she can use this memory to make jewelry with crystals, which would heal people who wear it, she was shown how to make these items, and how to sell them. The young man saw extraterrestrial past lives, when he was able to communicate with plants and use the energy of the plants to heal people. He also saw a future life, when he is working in a lab with many plants, searching for cure for cancer. He did have a scientific breakthrough, and created a drug, based on plant biochemistry, which cures certain cancers, he watched himself participating in press conference on TV talking about his discovery. The military man was shown a past life life in 16th century France, he studied medicine in Sorbonne, but chose to get a position with the Catholic Church as a record keeper, and assistant to a high ranking cleryman. It was pleasant life, he was an avid reader, a scholar, but he regrestted not becoming a doctor. After he died, I asked his Higher Self if there was another possibility, nother timeline? They shoed him another version of the same life, when he persisted in his studes of medicine, worked in a hospital, and became a teacher to medical students. His Higher Self advised him to become a paramedic - take a class and work as paramedic, and in several years he will become a supervisor and a trainer. He also had another past life as a shaman healer, when he healed with his hands, sending energy into patient's body. Higher Self activated his hands and advised him to start practicing this ability - first with animals, and later with his patients. We also did a bit f future life progression with some of these clients, when they saw details of possible future in this life, when they go on advised professional route. The young man saw the most benificial future when he is combining his artistic abiities, and his knowledge of plants - he was show working in a lab on cure for cancer using plants biochemistry, but also painting as a hobby at home, he had a studio in his house for his artistic endeavors. We did explore a ttimeline when he concentrates on painting - and he was a hungry artist workig in a basement, not being able to sell any paintings, not very happy...so art as carreer was not advised for him, but he was guided to keep it as a hobby.
I have noticed that my clients who have tattoos often visit past lives related to the images on their skin. It seems that subconscious memories of past lives make people choose images which they feel deeply connected with, and when we do a past life regression session - they understand why did they choose their tattoos.
I had a client with a sailboat tattoo on his arm, his occupation or hobbies in this life were not related to sailing, But in a past life he was a seaman in 18th century England, and spend his whole life on sailboats and very much enjoyed the adventures and camaraderie with fellow sailors.
A client with Ganesha tattoo (Indian elephant God of good luck) was a temple dancer in Ganesha temple in India in a past life, and Ganesha also showed up as her Spirit Guide, clearing the way for her regression and doing healing for her, he advised her to call upon him any time she needs help and protection, as there was a deep connection between them as she was his devotee and dancer in that life.
Another client had a large tattoo with pictures of endangered animals on her arm and part of the body. She loved animals and donated money to endangered species foundation, but her occupation or plans for this life had nothing to do with animal husbandry or rescue. She went into 2 past lives in this session. In the first life she was a woman in California in mid 20th century, who was a professional tennis player, but had a period of bad luck in sport and loosing matches, so she accepted her wealthy boyfriend's proposal of marriage and quit the sport to become housewife and mother. She loved her family but deeply regretted giving up her sport so easily, and when she eventually died from cancer in her 60s, this was a big regret in her 'life review". She made a resolution not to give up on her dreams so easily in future incarnation. In another past life she was a female shaman of a South American tribe in a jungle, she could communicate with animals telepathically and took care of injured animals, and she was also working with Spirit Animals in her shamanic practice. Her Higher Self told her that her plan for this life involved working in an animal sanctuary, she should quit her day job and look for volunteer position in Costa Rica taking care of animals, This was her life plan and she will be able to make a living doing what she loves and live in harmony with nature, and she would also meet her soulmate there.
If you are thinking about getting a tattoo - you can use past life regression imagery to design it, or ask your Spirit Guides or Higher Self what kind of a tattoo would be inspirational for you or remind you or a happy past life. As tattoos are permanent - this is a serious decision, and past life regression and communicating with your Guides might be helpful in choosing imagery. If you can afford international travel - you can even go on a trip to the country of happy past life, enjoy the culture and your past life memories, and get a tattoo there. Tattoos have spiritual significance, and can give you protection and good luck, and connection with deities and guardians.
I am often asked 'What is the difference between twin flames and soulmates?" I want to write a blog post on this topic, so I can just post a link instead of explaining it every time on each internet forum. Both types of soul-connection play a huge part in our relationships, but they are quite different, very different dynamics and challenges in each of these cases...
Soulmates are 2 or more souls who had many incarnations together in different roles. In one life they can be mother and son, in another - best friends, in another - married couple, in another - worst enemies etc etc These are DIFFERENT SOULS who are very close to each other on spiritual plane and share their 'games of life" in many incarnations. They usually belong to the same SOUL FAMILY (also known as soul group or soul cluster) - a group of souls who hang out together in AFTERLIFE and usually reincarnate as closest characters in each physical life - positive or negative, best friends or family or worst enemies, they challenge each other a lot, and also provide love and support...'Main Cast of Characters" in each of your past lives and this life. Soulmates usually have a lot of KARMA (consequences of actions) together (both good and bad) - as they created all kinds of emotional interactions in past lives, and the 'unfinished business' can carry over into this life. However in AFTERLIFE they are all best buddies, like a troupe of actors who always go to pub after a show and congratulate each other on great play, even if it was a tragedy and they killed each other in the stage...There can be a PRIMARY soulmate for some souls (the soul we incarnate with the most), but for other souls there might be several closest soulmates and no 'one and only" - different for different souls. Even within our closest soul family we might have souls which are closest to us, and others 'in friend zone" with whom we have more of a social connection.
When we meet a soulmate - we know right away that we knew this person way before, but we do not remember how...kinda like 'deja vu"...can be 'love from the first sight" or just deep sense of connection. You might have strange dreams and feel high energy around the time when you meet a soulmate or even remember past lives with this person in a dream or a flashback...
Relationships between soulmates depend on past life karma and current life plan. We usually pre-plan our meetings and interactions with soulmates before our birth while in the Spirit World. Often these are relationships in the family, long term best friends or romantic/marriage relationships. The beauty of soulmate relationships (if on positive note) is deep feeling of familiarity, intimacy, however these are 2 DIFFERENT SOULS and they need certain boundaries and space for each of them to grow, they are not exactly 'lock and a key" and will always have some tensions and differences between them... they can not truly 'merge" as one, as they are like 2 different songs, which can be put together in a jazz composition, but there are 2 distinctly different melodies which never overlap...
Twin flames are a different story. They are ONE SOUL dividing itself into 2 parallel lives, 2 different bodies who are destined to meet and interact with each other. Usually it is highly charged romance, but it also can be mortal combat or creative partnership...I had a client whose soul incarnated in 2 parallel lives of the Native American tribal chief and US Army General during Wold West times, the general killed the chief and all his tribe and then killed himself. He was under orders and did not want to murder Indians, but could not live with himself after the senseless massacre. (and you will not live long if you kill your twin flame anyway as this game is for the same soul to play with ITSELF, so if one physical player exits, the game does not make any sense anymore...) When they reunited in the Afterlife as ONE SOUL, the Soul saw another version of this life - when the general and the chief made a peace treaty and both became best friends and lived happily ever after. The SOUL learned from this experience that in the presence of LOVE positive choices are made and in the lack of love - negative and destructive choices are made...There are many deep lessons in TWIN FLAME EXPERIENCE, as soul learns about self-love, self-forgiveness, seeing other as YOURSELF. The challenges/blessings of Twin Flame relationship are full telepathy, full empathy, the unbreakable bond (soulmates can split , twin flames can not as they are one soul, after death they reunite in one Being) . But because of this oneness, they can go from Eternal Bliss to Hellish Misery in their interactions...as if one is angry - another gets angry, as one is sad - another gets sad, if one is happy - another gets happy etc. there is really no boundary between them. They also usually share Spirit Guide (or Guides) and often get guidance, psychic insights at the same time.
The client's name and details of current life has been changed to protect the client's privacy.
Luke came for past life regression session out of curiosity, but he also had a feeling that he lived in New Orleans before, as he had dreams about French Quarter in old days, and eerie feelings about several buildings. He was local, but born and raised in a suburb... it is hard to tell if "deja vu" feelings of a local person are related to a past life - or childhood memories...but it becomes more clear in a session. He had no irrational fears, but had an inner "block" - he wanted to quit his day job for a very long time and become a full time musician, and he could do it realistically as his kids were grown and he got a bit of inheritance from his parents, allowing him to live comfortably without steady income, and he was already playing with several bands on his free time, but there was some deep hesitation, preventing him from following his bliss...
When he found himself in a past life - he was standing on the riverbank, looking at sailboats. He immediately recognized that he was in New Orleans in 1800s. He was in a stocky white middle age male body, dressed in leather boots, brown pants and jacket with metal buttons, carrying some papers which looked like inventory lists...He approached one of the docked ships, and was watching the workers unloading the cargo - large square sacks, covered with canvas and tied with ropes. I asked him to have a look under the coverings - and he said it was cotton. The sacks were loaded on horse-drawn carts and taken to a warehouse nearby. He felt that he owned that warehouse, and the cotton was stored there, and later shipped out. I asked him - where will it go, and he said - Virginia and New York, and from there to England (this proved to be historically correct when I googled cotton trading routes after the session). I asked him to go to the place where he lived and see his family at a dinner table - he saw his wife in a yellow long dress and he felt it was the same soul as his wife in this life. (she looked differently, but clients are able to recognize familiar soul energies in past life regression), they had 2 small children. They had black servants serving the dinner. I moved him to an important event - and he was back in his warehouse, very upset. The warehouse was almost empty. Something happened with the cotton crops, the supply was drastically diminished, and his business was failing. In the next scene he was back in his house, hearing screams of his wife behind closed doors, she was having a baby. The child was born healthy, his wife was OK, but he had ambivalent feelings, as he was worried that he would not be able to provide for the growing family.., They had to move to a smaller house and had to live on a very tight budget, He felt very depressed. When I tried to move him to the next scene - he could not see anything, just darkness, which usually means that the past life persona died, so I took him back in time to the last day of his life. He was in a small room with blue walls, and he was very depressed and disoriented. He did not see how he died - but he had a feeling that he killed himself, as he was very upset about loosing his business and not being a good provider. He felt moving away from Earth and saw the Light and entered it. There was no punishment or judgement - just pure Love... I asked the Light to clear all the pain and suffering from that life, and when this was done, and he started feeling light and happy as 'pure energy" - and his deceased mother (from this life) appeared to him, and they had a conversation and embraced. His mom told him that he should quit his day job, and follow his dreams, and she is watching over him as his Guardian Angel. He does not have to worry about being a good provider anymore, he worked hard all his life and raised his kids, and can now enjoy well deserved freedom and develop his musical talent.
What caused the long lasting cotton crop failure during Luke's past life? It could be a disease caused by pests, or several very wet years, as excessive rainfall affects cotton crops. There is no historic data on rainfall or pestilence going to 1800s online, but this is very possible scenario, as cotton was one of the main export items in American South in 1800s.
Believe it or not - but it is possible to remove obstacles for weight loss with past life regression, if subconscious sabotaging of your slimming efforts is rooted in past life trauma and deep seated belief that being slim and attractive can get you into trouble. Viewing past life scenes and understanding of a limiting belief resulting from these memories can help to let go of this belief and negative programming. I can also add post hypnotic suggestions of enjoying healthy foods and drinking plenty of water (which is very important for shedding pounds) in the end of the session. You still will have to change your eating habits and increase physical activity, but it becomes much easier, and you will be able to achieve lasting weight loss, as the true reason for being overweight will be eliminated in past life regression.
Subconscious desire to hold onto extra weight is often connected with starvation in past lives. Many of us lived through wars or famines or poverty, and died with a last thought "I will never be hungry again" ... Remembering these situations in PLR, and reprogramming the subconscious mind with the idea that "there is plenty of food for every day" helps to let go the desire to stuff yourself with food as it might not be any food tomorrow...
Holding onto extra weight can also be connected with rape or sexual assault in past life, this is especially true for women, as it only carries out into female lives (so far I have not have any male clients with this issue) . I had a female client who was a street portrait artist in 19 century London, very skinny teenage girl, and she was raped by a drunk man returning home after dark...she survived, and eventually happily married and had kids, but she was holding onto the memory of that rape, especially her feeling "I am so small and skinny, I can not fight him". In this life her holding onto the extra weight was associated with being strong and big, and able to protect herself. Another client was a Native American maiden, living happy life with her tribe, and they were attacked by white people, who killed everybody, except for beautiful women and they were gang raped, and later killed. She was holding onto belief "Beauty leads to suffering" as if she were not attractive in that life, her death would be more quick and painless.. (You do not experience any physical sensations during past life regression, so even if the rape scene is experienced, clients cry and feel emotions, but no physical pain, and it is good to cry during PLR as it helps to release pent up emotions)
There are some very unusual past life situations related to weight gain sometimes...I worked with a female client who was quite large in this life - but in a past life she was a pretty and slim Southern Belle in 18th century Alabama, who loved to write poetry, and was very well read, but her father did not take her intelligence seriously and was quite harsh about her desire to participate in male conversations about politics or science, telling her something like "Occupy yourself with hair and clothes, this is more appropriate for a pretty girl" She rebelled against her father and cut her golden locks, and refused to participate in balls and eventually never married and died a spinster. Her limiting belief was "Being slim and pretty leads to being misunderstood and patronized by men".
I can also lead you into "motivational lives" to inspire you to be more physical active and discover hidden talents and abilities in sports, dancing, hiking, swimming in past lives and to find out what kind of physical activity would be the most enjoyable for you. In one of my own sessions as a client when I wanted to see a life related to my weight issues, I was shown a life of a temple dancer in Ancient Ceylon, who was incredibly fit and flexible, and had fantastic posture. In one of the scenes she was standing in the King's garden with her hands on the back of a pet tiger - and I was just amazed by the way she carried her body and the energy flowing through her spine, and connection with tiger energy - I started using this scene for visualization after the session: imagining myself standing totally straight with my hands on tiger's back helped me to control my posture and energy flow. I was also shown swimming to safety during a flood, as her physical fitness and swimming skill saved her life. After that session I started using every opportunity to go dancing, and also paid attention to my posture and energy flow, this past life also helped me to change my body image. I lost about 20 lbs in 2 months after that session without any major changes in diet - just by going out more and dancing alone at home in front of a mirror...
If you struggle to loose weight and no matter what diet you use - you always gain it back, and just feel stuck in overweight body, you might consider doing past life regression session and discover the true subconscious reasons for being overweight and the best ways for you to go about food and physical activities. The session will satisfy your curiosity about your past lives and will also remove subconscious obstacles for achieving fitness, and new motivation to create slim healthy body for yourself.
Our fair city is a home of "Hollywood South" and Hollywood has been fascinated with reincarnation and past lives for a while...since 1950s there were many films touching upon the subject reincarnation, often in a comic way, but recently there have been many dramas and science fiction movies about rebirth and afterlife. There are also several good documentaries about reincarnation of Tibetan lamas, presenting Buddhist doctrine of reincarnation to the Westerners. Here are some movies you might enjoy.
