Have you ever experienced the nagging sense of deja vu — the feeling that you have been here before or had this conversation already? Maybe you went on vacation and felt instantly at home in a town you have never visited before. You may be having memories of a past life.
Sometimes we will even sense that we have an instant connection with someone. That, too, may be a past life memory kicking in. Think about it. We are not the only ones who have lived multiple lives. Our loved ones have too. And typically we travel in the same circles. Your instant connection could even be a sign that you’ve found one of your soulmates.
How a past life affects you today
Did you ever hear the argument made that if we don’t know our history, we are destined to repeat the same mistakes? Well, this applies to past lives as well.
We often have the same problems in life after life because when we don’t learn a certain lesson in one lifetime, we are likely to repeat it.
If there is a part of your life that frustrates you because you just can’t seem to get it right, you may be experiencing a challenge that you first encountered in a past life. And the reason you are having so much difficulty with it today is because you can’t remember those important a-ha moments from your past life that can help you solve the problem forever. Whether it is money woes, relationship drama or even health challenges, an answer may lie in a past life.

Often the people that we shared our past lives with are the people that we share our current life with. However, we might not come back in the same roles.
For example, your husband in a previous lifetime could be your brother in this lifetime. Or a person that you hate in this lifetime could have been your best friend in a lifetime that has passed. It’s not unusual for us to come across people in our current lifetime who shared another lifetime with us. You may even be picking up on bad vibes from someone who was a past life enemy.
Signs of a past life connection
If you are wondering whether you might have shared a past life with someone, here are some signs.
There was an immediate positive connection
Have you ever met someone and immediately been able to share your feelings and vulnerabilities? Chances are your soul recognizes the person and you know instinctively that this is someone you’ve loved and trusted in a past life.
There was an immediate negative reaction
We don’t just come back with the people we love. We often come back with the people we hate. Our greatest lessons are taught not only by our loved ones, but by our enemies, as well. In fact, often our enemies are our greatest teachers. If you have an immediate negative reaction to someone it could be for something that happened in a past life rather than this one.
You experience a strong sense of deja vu
We already discussed the origins of deja vu. If you experience deja vu when you’re with a particular person, chances are the two of you experienced life together before.
You have a telepathic connection
Is there someone in your life who you understand so much that you know what they’re going to say before they say it and vice-versa? If so, there’s a good chance that you two have traveled many lives together. Souls that share lifetimes tend to have a deeper connection than souls who are just interacting for the first time. If your connection is on a subconscious level and you have a telepathic connection, you may have been together before. Click here to learn how to test your telepathic connection with a loved one.
You recognize their eyes
This is a trait that’s common with soulmates. If you come across someone and recognize their eyes it’s probably because you’ve been together in previous lifetimes. While our bodies change from lifetime to lifetime our eyes stay the same so you can often recognize someone from a previous lifetime in this manner.
The relationship is short-lived but intense
Have you ever met someone and had an intense relationship with them only for it to end within a matter of months or even weeks? Often we have unresolved business with someone from a past life but we don’t need a long time to resolve it. A short, intense relationship can provide the closure that both parties need. While such a relationship can be painful and confusing in this present lifetime, it can be exactly what both parties needed to do on a subconscious level to resolve an experience from the past. That relationship could hold a major key in helping you to achieve your dreams in your current life.
Learning past life lessons can change your life
Knowing about your past lives and past life relationships can make a tremendous difference in your current life. If there are lessons that you didn’t get in a past life, those lessons will likely be particularly powerful in this one. After all, the Universe wants to make sure that you don’t miss it again. Learning about your past lives can help you learn those lessons once and for all.
Is there something very painful that you’re dealing with? It’s possible that you’re dealing with a past life issue. The sooner you realize that, the sooner you can determine what you need to learn, and the sooner you’ll be free of that pain. By doing the work to discover your past lives, you may be able to:
—Recognize your soulmate. (Click here for 3 Mistakes Keeping You From Your Soulmates)

—Learn how to break free of challenges that have been plaguing you.
—Finally achieve that goal that has been so elusive.
How to explore a past life today
One way to learn about a past life is to get hypnotized and do a regression. I learned through a past life regression that I was an herbalist and healer in a past life. The reading helped me to make some sense of my current life and my current interest in metaphysical concepts. The reading also showed me that I was killed in a previous lifetime because of my beliefs. That helped to explain a fear I have had of talking about my spiritual beliefs with others.
If you can get a past life regression, you might learn the answer to many questions that have been plaguing you in life. One way to do so from the comfort of your own home is through this virtual past life regression program. The program gives you an hour-long hypnotic regression session, which helps to relax the conscious barriers that are keeping you from your past life memories. The narrator of the program guides you through a meditation that helps you to recall memories from one or more of your incarnations.
Having done past life regressions in person, I can tell you that this is the same thing that happens in the office of a regression therapist. They will simply guide you into a meditative state and ask you questions about what thoughts and memories come to mind.
Trying the virtual past life regression program can also give you a low-cost way to see if an in-person past life regression is for you. While the virtual program costs $20, I spent $299 for my in-person regression.
If you do try out the virtual program, make sure you have a pad of paper nearby so you can jot down notes. You may recall something that doesn’t make sense today but it may make sense tomorrow.
