The wrong reason to get a past life reading

past life reading

Have you ever wondered who you were in a past life? Have you ever wanted to get a past life reading? If so, you are not alone. But before you take that step, make sure you are doing it for the right reasons.

Some people imagine that they were famous people in a past life. They might picture themselves a heroic figure like Napoleon Bonaparte, the one-time leader of France. Or they may imagine that they performed brave actions, such as leading an army to victory.

They may think it makes a great story to tell or makes them seem interesting if they can describe a past life.  If this sounds like you and you want to find out whether you were a celebrity or lived a magical life, you are missing one of the major points of getting a past life regression.

Most people had a series of ordinary mundane lives rather than past lives that were larger than life. And even if you were to find that you were a famous person in a past life, how can that piece of information help you today?

The purpose of a past life reading

A past life regression can be extremely healing. You can read about a past life reading I experienced here. The purpose of going back in time and learning past life lessons is to apply the knowledge you’ve learned to your own life. Most people are carrying baggage not just from their current lives but from their past lives as well. By learning about your past lives, you can figure out which issues you’ve carried over to this lifetime that need to be dealt with.

Maybe you were greedy in a past life and you swindled people out of their hard-earned money. In this lifetime, you may be repaying that karmic debt by giving selflessly to others or living a life of sacrifice.

You can also find out why certain relationships are the way that they are. For example, you may have a co-worker that you can’t stand and you always find yourself in conflict with this person. A past life reading might show you that you shared a past life with that co-worker, and the two of you may have had conflicts then that are still affecting your interactions today.

Before you start exploring past lives sit down and journal and ask yourself what you hope to gain from the experience. You might also read about past lives.
