Did you know messages from a past life can literally change the direction of your life today?
What’s the use of reading about past lives if we can’t learn from them? Thankfully, the lessons we learned in a past life can help us to avoid mistakes today. For example, a betrayal in a past life might have taught us how to pick up on the energy of a liar. We might literally get a knot in our stomach if someone lies to us today. Just make sure you listen to that knot in your stomach and trust your gut! Or you can read this for other psychic signs that someone is lying to you.
While a past life regression can help us intentionally explore successes and failures from previous lives, the Universe sometimes sends us messages from a past life when we least expect it. However, we have to pay attention. Here are some things to look for.
Note your historical obsessions
Have you ever felt drawn to a particular period in time? Maybe you wanted to learn more about it by reading books about it or doing a deep-dive on Google. I have always had a fascination with the Salem Witch Trials and even as a child, I read anything and everything I could about that period of time. I later learned that I had past life memories associated with that period and I was drawn to the information about it because my soul recognized it.
Our interests often contain messages from a past life, as we are drawn to the memories. Our soul is letting us know that this is important to our soul’s development. It’s also letting us know that there are lessons we can take from that period and apply them to our current lives.

What books do you gravitate to?
If you’re a reader, there’s a good chance you’re drawn to certain types of books. Sure, a murder mystery lover could just happen to love murder mysteries, but a person drawn to murder mysteries might also have been murdered in a past life.
It is not, in fact, uncommon to remember a past life murder. In fact, there was a news article that made the rounds a few years ago about a three-year-old boy who recalled a past life in which he was murdered. Not only that, but he remembered where he was buried. His parents paid attention to what he was saying and investigated the boy’s claims. In that spot, a skeleton was ultimately discovered.
Along the same lines, if you’re drawn to historical fiction, take note of whether your interest lies in one particular time period. That time period could be one that held an important past life experience for you.
Do movies from a certain era stand out to you?
Not everyone is into books. Some of us prefer movies. But the same rules apply as far as paying attention to where your attention lies to see if you can spot messages from a past life. First of all look for similarities in the types of movies you watch. You might ask yourself the following questions:
Do most of the movies you watch tend to follow the same themes?
Are you fascinated with certain locations?
Do you like war movies?
Do your favorite movies tend to be set in the same historical time period?
All of these could be clues that you are tapping into past life memories that you could benefit from exploring.
Pay attention to deja vu
If you’ve ever experienced deja vu, chances are you won’t forget it. It can feel disconcerting to go someplace you’ve never been and yet feel like you’ve been there before. In other instances, deja vu may occur if you’re having a conversation with a loved one and you know you’ve already had this conversation and you’ve already lived that moment. It can make you wonder if you’ve somehow encountered a time warp!
Some believe that deja vu is proof that we are reliving certain moments from past lives.
Others believe it may be the universe’s way of getting a past life message to you that this moment is important. Think about it. Deja vu makes you stop and take notice. Some even believe that deja vu may also be a pathway leading you to your soulmate.
What to do when you get messages from a past life
If you suspect you are being drawn to a book or movie or time period because it is a message from one or more of your past lives, follow your instincts and honor the obsession. Read as much as you can about it. Watch the movies. Search on Google.
Also, set the intention that you understand any messages that come to you. You might ask your spirit guides to send clear messages that can help you to move forward.
Also trust what you know to be true. As you learn about these time periods that interested you, you may experience claircognizance, or an instant knowing, about something you logically should not know anything about. (Learn more about claircognizance here.) Trust your intuition and open yourself to learning the lessons that the past life experience can teach you.
