Throughout my work with Past Life Patterns I have come to notice a common thread throughout them all. This common thread is woven deeply in all past life experiences, and I call it Perception Perfection.
What is Perception Perfection? It is the quest to control how other people will perceive of you. Each one of us is trying in some way to provide others with a controlled perspective on who we are.
Everything you do conveys something to the world and to the people around you. Most of the time, the controlling factor behind why we do what we do is rooted deeply in our subconscious.
Based on our unique and individual past life history, we have lived through hundreds (or more) of lifetimes. What you have experienced most frequently within those lifetimes, becomes the foundation for your specific mix of 3 to 5 primary Past Life Patterns.
Each one of the past life patterns, carries a different expectation of being judged. Those various expectations of judgement can be physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, or any combination thereof.
Whatever you have an expectation of being judged about, is also representative of the ways in which you subconsciously judge yourself. That is the part that is so tricky.
Because much of our judgement is subconscious, we do not recognize it at first. However, if you instead begin to have awareness of your own mind chatter, and what thoughts/expectations you have about the perception others could have of you, this awareness can give you a great glimpse into your own pattern of Perception Perfection.
Why is it Perception Perfection? Because it is the effort we make to try to put forth a perfect facade. Sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it? Well, it is. A facade is a false front, to be thought of like a mask; our controlled vision of what we want others to see.
However, by definition it is impossible to be perfect, because it is hiding exactly what we are judging ourselves for. The more we become aware of what we doesn’t want to share, the more the facade grows. The more the facade grows, the more susceptible it is to crack apart under its own perfectionism pressure.
That pressure to pursue perfection is based on how we are expecting others to judge us. Here is how that breaks down for each of the 16 Past Life Patterns.
Infidel: wants to be perfectly accepted despite their viewpoints; fears being judged for their beliefs.
Doll: wants to be perfectly accepted for their body; fears being judged for their appearance.
Monk: wants to be perfectly accepted by God; fears being judged for not being holy enough.
Victim: wants to be perfectly accepted for being skilled/smart; fears being judged for being incapable/unintelligent.
Savior: wants to be perfectly accepted for helping others; fears being judged for not helping enough people (or for not helping the “right” people).
Ruler: wants to be perfectly accepted for making the best decisions for everyone; fears being judged for the outcomes of their decisions.
Prophet: wants to be perfectly accepted because of the guidance they provide; fears being judged as being a fraud.
Scoundrel: wants to be perfectly accepted despite what moral lines they have crossed; fears being judged because of how they have skirted the law.
Merchant: wants to be perfectly accepted because of their ability to manage/control resources; fears being judged for not possessing enough resources.
Utilizer: wants to be perfectly accepted for their ability to discover/create solutions; fears being judged for not being able to solve all the problems in their lives/lives of their family.
Servant: wants to be perfectly accepted for their willingness to serve; fears being judged for not doing a good enough job.
Unwell: wants to be perfectly accepted for whatever state of health their body is in; fears being judged for their illness/condition/disease/dependence on others to care for them.
Warrior: wants to be perfectly accepted by showcasing power/strength; fears being judged for being soft/weak.
Outcast:wants to be perfectly accepted unconditionally for all parts of who they are; fears being judged (and therefore abandoned) by their closest inner circle of friends/family.
Agent: wants to be perfectly accepted despite their challenges with trusting others; fears being judged by authority or “powers that be.”
Creative: wants to be perfectly accepted for their creative expressions; fears being judged as being untalented.
These are just a very small taste of the energetic dynamics for each past life pattern. As you can see from each of the shared examples, our perception perfection is directly connected to our subconscious expectations of being judged in a specific manner. Deep down, it is also precisely the way in which we are judging ourselves. The only cure for Perception Perfection is self-acceptance!
