Do you find yourself asking what’s life’s purpose?

What if you could go back in time and learn from your past lives? Tap into your old soul wisdom?

Would you be happier, healthier and more aligned with your authentic self? Discover the truth about past lives and the connection to your present life. How do past lives show up in the present? It’s France. 1800’s. A small country road is winding to a château. A carriage carrying passengers is turned on its side. The driver is badly injured... My client Mary’s body is transmitting clear images to me of this past life memory, a carriage accident, during a psychic spiritual healing session. Mary’s soul reveals that the anxiety bordering on terror she experiences in her current life is actually due to this carriage accident in 1800's France. Her body asks for support to process and release the residual trauma.

Regression to past lives: How your current life mirrors aspects of your past lives.

Many people seeking meditation for past life regression end up in a treatment session with me, Trina, a medical intuitive, receiving an online or in-person psychic spiritual healing.

In regression to past lives therapy sessions, I prefer to know nothing about a client prior to treatment. Instead, I tune into their body with my psychic senses and allow their body to tell me their story. This way I make sure the body has a chance to communicate its perspective of events including the wisdom it holds of its priority of needs.

I knew nothing about Mary before I began her session, and I remember thinking…

What will Mary think when I reveal details of this past life to her? Will it make sense to her? As it happened, when I disclosed the carriage accident, Mary told me she had always had extreme anxiety in general and especially when it came to driving a car. She had never been able to get her driver’s licence.

What I saw with my psychic senses, and what Mary’s body revealed to me, made total sense to Mary. Her intense anxiety around driving had always been one of those behavioural patterns that defied her logical understanding.

Want to overcome obstacles and challenges in the present? Knowing ‘who was I in my past lives’ can help!

Past life regression therapy enabled Mary to extract the wisdom her soul was seeking from the carriage accident and release the trauma her psyche had been holding onto. Mary now drives a car with ease and confidence. The intense anxiety that generally plagued her life, for seemingly no reason, is no longer an issue.

5 essential points on past lives and their relevance to your life purpose right now!

1. As part of your soul purpose, your body may seek to clear past life trauma. Your soul may decide, as part of your soul purpose, it is time to process certain difficulties and challenges it is still holding onto from past lives. In such cases, your body, in the present, will start to mirror circumstances from past lives. I clearly remember a client I treated with past life regression therapy who had a prior incarnation where they were shackled around their ankles and wrists. They were locked in a dark room. I revealed to the client the past life trauma details shown to me by their body. The client explained they had distressing pain in their ankles and wrists in the here and now. They also experienced intense light sensitivity. Following a series of psychic spiritual healing sessions these symptoms significantly reduced. Remember the example of Mary and her carriage accident? Mary had tried many conventional therapies to treat her anxiety. Working through the past life trauma mirrored in the here and now enabled Mary to release a stuck behavioural pattern and progress forward with fulfilling part of her soul purpose.

2. You have gifts and abilities honed in past incarnations. Past life versions of you show up to deliver useful ‘old soul’ wisdom in the here and now. This is exactly what happened to me! I have witnessed the same phenomenon for countless other people too. Many clients attribute my spiritual healing skills, and my ability to receive detailed information from the body, mind and soul, to my being an “old soul”. The truth is far more interesting. I have met with many past life versions of myself and they have contributed to me developing the skills and abilities I have as a spiritual healer today. It was part of my soul purpose to do so! In my current life, I completed an honours degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. When I started practising Chinese Medicine, clients kept turning up with deep soul-based patterns to heal. Aligning to my life purpose required me to meet with and integrate skill sets from past life versions of my soul. Past life versions of me presented in spiritual healing sessions. They offered me an energy exchange that enabled me to gain knowledge about the soul and spirit anatomy of the body. This empowered me to build a relationship with a team of healing spirits. To this day I work day in and day out with this team to transform the life and body of my clients. Skills downloaded from past lives support me to shift the underlying consciousness of the body bringing about sustained physical, mental and emotional change. Reawakening past incarnation abilities and skills enabled me to level up. I am certain I would never have had enough time in this life to truly embody and refine with training the skills I needed to be the soul-based holistic medicine practitioner I am today. You also have past life versions of you waiting and wanting to mentor you to deepen your unique capacity to offer transformational change to others. To help you grow into an expression of your authentic self. 3. The patterns you are struggling with physically, mentally or emotionally COULD be related to a past life.

Have you ever wondered ‘ is this pattern I am struggling with related to a past life? ‘Here I am – again – reacting and behaving in a manner that I know does not serve me. That I know is not reflective of my deeper authentic self.’ Nonetheless, you may find the behavioural pattern appears to have momentum all of its own! This may indicate you are experiencing the influence of past live trauma in your current struggles. Here are 3 tips to help you know if your behavioural patterns are past life related.

  • The symptoms you experience are disproportionate to the situation you find yourself in. For example, Mary and her carriage accident, where trepidation and fear about driving a car became mystifyingly paralysing anxiety.

  • You keep finding yourself in similar challenging circumstances. Over and over. Regardless of effort and toil. Again, drawing on Mary’s experience, you may have tried numerous therapies to consciously and subconsciously address a physical, mental or emotional struggle. You can’t seem to get the traction of change you instinctively know is possible for you.

  • Your body has the signs and symptoms of significant trauma. Yet you cannot pinpoint an actual trauma that has occurred in this life. This is a very common sign of past life involvement. I see this clinically in my spiritual healing practice frequently.

4. You CAN learn about who you were in past lives. I bet you’re now wondering ‘who was I in my past lives?’ Aside from searching for ‘spiritual healing near me’ and trying your hand at therapy for regression to past lives, here are my top 6 tips to learn more about your own past lives.

  • Make a clear wholehearted decision you would like to know more about your past lives. Make the decision! Being clear this is what you want is the best way to align your intent, in a purposeful way, to meet a past life version of your soul.

  • Place your hands on your heart. Hold a clear and earnest focus of your intent. Ask your soul to reveal one or more of your past lives. I strongly suggest you ask to connect to a past life that holds value for you when it comes to living out your life purpose.

  • Your soul has the capacity to drop this requested information to you in a variety of ways. Now it is time to remain open and curious.

  • Messages of information will trickle in through a variety of mysterious and or mundane ways. It may be a dream. A snippet in a book. A tv show on Netflix. A documentary grabs your attention. You may be inexplicably drawn to a particular country or time period in history. An everyday mundane conversation has a message that registers as significant. Do not decide how the information will come through. Remain open.

  • Each day reaffirm your request with focused intent. I suggest doing this just as you wake up or just as you go to sleep. Or both, twice a day!

  • Believe in yourself. Trust the process. The information may take days, weeks, or months to make its way to you. The process has its own logic. Trust it.

  • You may discover hints regarding your past lives in your chosen career and hobbies. Perhaps you are a passionate gardener because you were a farmer in your former life. You may spend your free time advocating for human rights due to past life persecution.

  • Finally, please know that most of your past lives were not flashy. Grandiose past lives are the exception rather than the rule! Despite this, all lives are significant and have wisdom and growth opportunities to offer

5. What’s life’s purpose? What is an incarnation? Your soul yearns for growth through the experience of many human lives! Each time you incarnate you are a different unique person in your own right. There are differences in geographical location, social and cultural context, the epoch of time, alignment of the stars and the list goes on and on. These changes in circumstances from life to life are seen as opportunities for your soul to grow through the experience of being human. Growth fuels your life purpose. Discovering more about your past lives can help you uncover a highly nuanced understanding of your soul purpose. It can support the unravelling of mysterious symptoms and unlock your journey of personal growth! Change has many challenges inherent in it. It is common wisdom that change can be the bearer of great learning. Remember past lives are real! Past lives may not always be easy to remember. This is mainly due to an occurrence known as spiritual amnesia. This is another fascinating topic I will delve into at another time. For the present please know that asking the question ‘who was I in my past lives’ is definitely worth pursuing.
