Of course, there are times when people visit the same time periods and the reports that they give of the events of those times always match up...but what they experience on a personal level is so unique and so intrinsically personal to them that it sometimes blows our minds.
So many times my clients come in for Past life sessions with a fear that they must have done something bad in a previous life and whenever I hear those words these days it makes me smile- because I know for sure that when we are experiencing difficulties in out lives we are not being punished. We may be balancing the karmic books- or we may have chosen to experience a particular challenge so that our soul can grow- we evolve much faster when we overcome the big challenges....
I like to point out to my clients that it is only the souls who were brave enough, and strong enough, that signed up for the big challenges--- and once they have learnt to overcome them ---they are in a powerful position because they can become a guide for others who walk the same path.
It is hard to think that we might have deliberately chosen to endure suffering- many ask me why they would do that- and I say that it is the fastest way to expand consciousness and the best way to test the ability to love unconditionally- which I believe is why we are here.
It is easy to love those that are good and kind- it is easy to love those who are beautiful on the outside or who are kind and gentle and do good deeds- making them more beautiful on the inside. It is much harder to love the souls who are angry and violent- who do harm and who display little of kindness and compassion; but we are all one. We come from the same source and so by judging another we are only judging a part of ourselves.
When we understand fully that everyone here has a role to play and a mission to accomplish- and when we see that our soul has to experience all versions of possibilities to evolve- we see that there is no right or wrong- no good or bad- it just is what it is.
When we see that we chose- as did all the souls here on earth- the challenges, the adversities, and the lessons we wanted to learn ...we can see that if we needed to experience suffering then someone had to volunteer to play that part- and that someone is often someone from our own soul group- because they want to make sure the job is done well and done properly- that way we don't have to come back and go through that same lesson again.
So, just bear that in mind the next time someone does something that you perceive as being hurtful towards you. Instead of asking 'Why have you done this to me?'....ask 'Why did I choose to experience this? What can I learn?'
You can then move the energy from victim-hood to gratitude.....and the more we focus on gratitude the more comes into our life ot be grateful for.
When we become free of blame, guilt and judgement- we step into our own personal power and then we make space
to allow the real essence of unconditional love into our lives. That is what I call Inner Freedom.
