There is a great deal of focus on living in the Now, and rightfully so. The now is where creation begins, where life is lived, and where the past is healed. For many who are doing work with practicing living in the now, one of the essential pieces for cultivating deep peace in life, is often not given the proper attention. That piece is about healing the past. You will not be able to truly live in now, until you can understand and release the past.
Most people are not aware of how their past lives are influencing them in the now. Every thought, action, behavior and emotion is done under the influence of your past lives. In fact, 85% of your life is ruled by your past life patterns. You can see why is to so critical to release the past, in order to truly be at peace in the present.
You have an opportunity to begin to understand the past lives in your Soul’s history and how they are influencing you in the here and now. Understanding your past life energy is much more than simply knowing the who, what, where and when. Past life exploration requires looking at the patterns, dynamics, emotions and memories that made up the original experiences. For, once you understand those pieces of influence, you are able to break the past life patterns that have a hold on you.
You may be wondering, “How do I really know if I am under the influence of past life patterns?” You will know this to be the case when you experience repeating circumstances, lessons, and situations in your life. This often shows up as having relationships with the same type of personalities, repeating patterns in the workplace, with your emotions, with finances, or with other areas of life.
Other evidence of past life influence includes deep emotions as related to specific places, times and people. Dreams and meditations are a doorway that you can utilize to begin to look at your past life energy, but it takes truly focused work to be able to transform the influence of past life energy until it ceases to affect you. That focused work is done by paying attention to your actions and reactions, your words, thoughts, tendencies, and mostly importantly, your fears.
As the fog lifts and everyone is able to see more of the truth of life, it becomes exceedingly important not to permit the situations of the past to influence your vision of the now. Look at your life and understand the past life patterns you are repeating, look at the emotions in those patterns, and make the choice now to do something to change those patterns in your life.
Living in the Now is a beautiful thing, but only if you are free to create without the fears, emotions, doubts and vulnerabilities of your past attempting to influence you. Now is time to heal the past, so that you can move forward into a more empowered future.
