Before you go looking for a cosmetic surgeon to remove that birthmark you hate, consider that it may be a remnant of a past life. Birthmarks and past lives may be more intertwined than you could have imagined.
If you are trying to blend into a crowd, the last thing you need is a birthmark. That’s because birthmarks are identifying features that are unique to us. Some birthmarks are so rare and uncommon that they have even been used as identifying characteristics in police investigations. (Police have used birthmarks to give the public a better description of a person of interest, and in some cases, birthmarks have helped witnesses identify perpetrators of a crime.) But birthmarks don’t just shed light on one’s identity; they can also shed light into one’s past lives.
How birthmarks and past lives can be interrelated
When people move from lifetime to lifetime, they don’t always go empty handed. Often emotional baggage of traumas from past lives can come up again in a current lifetime. If you feel like you keep making the same mistake or suffering from the same inner wound, it may be a karmic lesson that you failed to get in a previous lifetime.
It’s also common for people to bring fears from one lifetime to another. You may have been afraid of fire in multiple lifetimes like I am, or perhaps you died in a fire in a previous lifetime so flames instill fear in you today. We also tend to have relationships with the same souls in multiple lifetimes, so we may even bring our loved ones with us from lifetime to lifetime. When I did a past life regression some years ago, I was surprised to learn that some people held other roles in my life during a previous lifetime, my mother being one of them.
Birthmarks can also be passed from one lifetime to another. Sometimes a soul will have the same unique identifier in multiple lifetimes. There have been cases of past life regression in which a client recalls a previous life in which they had the same birthmark that they have in a current lifetime. Just as the eyes often stay the same from lifetime to lifetime, a birthmark can transcend death.
Birthmarks as past life wounds
In other cases, a birthmark may be indicative of a wound you experienced in a past life or even your death in a past life. For example, one might have been stabbed in the arm in a past life and that same soul may have a birthmark in that very spot in this current lifetime. A person who was shot to death in a past life might have a birthmark in the location of the body where the bullet struck.
Sometimes you can even discover clues into a past life based on the shape of a birthmark. For example, a birthmark could have the smooth, circular shape of a bullet hole or the jagged edges of a knife wound. A birthmark might even resemble a place on a map where the soul lived in a previous life. It’s also possible for people of the same soul group to share a birthmark so if you meet someone who you feel a deep connection with and they happen to have a birthmark that is similar to yours, there is a good change that that person and you have shared multiple lifetimes. My father and I shared a birthmark on the back of our thighs, and he was definitely a kindred soul.
If you have a birthmark and you’d like to know whether or not it provides clues to a past life, meditate on it. Set the intention to get an answer to your question and clear your mind and focus on your breathing. Pay attention to the answers you get, and trust them. Our bodies often hold the keys not only to our past, but to our past lives as well.
