Have you ever wondered who you were in a past life?
If so, it could be beneficial to your current life to learn more. Having knowledge about a past life can help you to better understand some of your current life experiences since we often bring forth buried memories from previous lifetimes. For example, a person with a fear of fire may be reacting unconsciously to the fact that he or she died in a fire during a previous lifetime. Or a strong experience of deja vu may be an indication of something or someone who impacted you in a past life.
So how can you remember one or more of your past lives? There are a number of things you can do.
Record your dreams. It’s a good idea to record your dreams for a number of reasons. Dreams help us to make sense of our lives; often intuition speaks the loudest through dreams. By recording your dreams and going back and looking at them later, you may find patterns and messages that your subconscious is trying to tell you. Among those messages could be memories of lessons learned in past lives that may help you today.
Visit a past life regressionist. You don’t have to explore your past lives alone. A past life regressionist can help you to remember those important lessons from earlier times. Many past life regressionists use hypnosis to help you to unlock memories that are stored in the back of your mind. A past life regressionist can also help to put memories in context and can be supportive to you if certain past life memories are painful or traumatic.

Get educated on past lives. There are a number of books that provide more insight into the phenomena of past lives. Brian Weiss is a psychiatrist who writes about his patients’ experiences with past lives in Many Lives, Many Masters: The True Story of a Prominent Psychiatrist, His Young Patient, and the Past-Life Therapy That Changed Both Their Lives. Other books that provide insight obtaining past life knowledge include Denise Linn’s Past Lives, Present Miracles: The Most Empowering Book on Reincarnation You’ll Ever Read…in this Lifetime! and Lois Wetzel’s Akashic Records: Case Studies of Past Lives.
Find a psychic with an expertise in past life information. Some psychics specialize in picking up information about past lives. Typically online psychics and real-world psychics will have certain types of readings that they are particularly skilled at delivering. See if someone can provide insight into your past lives. The information should resonate with you in some way if it is accurate.
Note your fears and strong reactions. One way to gain insight into past lives is to notice your fears and your strong reactions. Your soul has not forgotten anything that has happened to it in this or other lifetimes. Often we react spontaneously to things in ways that are unexplainable to us. For example, you might find yourself feeling angry toward someone for no reason whenever you see him or her. Fears that you have that are illogical could also be carry-overs from previous lifetimes. Write down experiences such as these and see if you notice a pattern. You may know more about your past lives than you think.
Trust what you get. When you do receive information about a past life, it’s easy to wonder if you’re making it up. You’ll never be able to convince your logical mind that the supernatural is real because it is not equipped to understand things that defy logic. Trust that the information you get is accurate and allow the past life lessons to help you move forward more successfully in this life.
