One of the most fascinating topics is reincarnation and past lives. Have you ever wondered who you were in a past life or how that life might be connected to your current life? Learning that information can help you to handle current challenges that you may be facing. For example, I know of a woman who was having trouble conceiving. She visited a past life regression therapist and discovered that in a previous life she had so many children that she could not take care of all of them. She believed that her guilt from that lifetime was preventing her from conceiving in this lifetime. After discovering that past life, she did a meditation in which she forgave herself for her past failing as a mother. Shortly after that, she became pregnant. Whether or not you believe the past life was keeping her from having a baby is irrelevant. The fact that she believed it gave her hope that she could overcome those fears — and she did.
If you have certain fears, they could be related to a past life. Here are some common fears and what they could indicate about a past life.
If you are claustrophobic and hate things like elevators and other cramped spaces, you may have been suffocated in a past life or even buried alive.
If you are afraid of fire you may have been burned to death. Many people who followed spiritual paths in previous lives experienced burnings because of their spiritual beliefs.
If you are afraid to swim, or have an aversion to water, you might have experienced a death by drowning in a past life.

If you are very quiet, or you are afraid to speak up about what you believe, you might not be shy. Instead, you might have been hurt or killed for your beliefs or things that you said in a past life. Many people who are very secretive about their personal lives experienced danger because of their personal practices in the past.
If you are afraid of heights, you might have died from a fall from a high place such as a mountain or cliff in a past life.
If you are afraid of experiencing success — say you sabotage yourself or you don’t take the steps that you know will yield good results — it could be because you were killed because of your success in a particular area. For example, someone may have been jealous of you and taken your life in a past life because you were successful.
When it comes to your fears, the last thing you want to do is to brush them off as being unimportant. Instead, they can be very insightful into who you are and what your soul has experienced in the past.
If you’re interested in learning more about past lives, there are a number of resources you can check out. Brian Weiss is one of the pre-eminent researchers into past life experiences.
Mirrors of Time: Experience Your Past Lives is a lecture you can download in which Weiss shares the benefits of going back through time to remember past lives that are relevant to your current life. He also leads you through a past life regression of your own.
