Perception Perfection

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.

Perception Perfection

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. The more you know about your specific combination, and which patterns are influencing your subconsous mind chatter, the more you can move out of the fear/expectation of being judged, and into a space where you use the knowledge of your Perception Perfection to empower yourself toward self-acceptance. As you can see from each of the shared examples, our perception perfection is directly connected to 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!

Past Life Patterns Listing

Since 2007, Karen Downing has assisted clients in moving beyond the influence of their past lives. As a result of this work, Karen has seen 16 distinctive emotional patterns emerge, based on past life experiences. Every person alive today lives over 85% of their life under the influence of the specific patterns they lived again and again.  Learn about these 16 past life patterns below to begin to discover how each pattern influences you in your life today.

The importance in learning about and understanding these past life patterns is to gain increased awareness of the sources of your own unique emotional responses, reactions and feelings. By understanding that what was, no longer has to be, you can find yourself in a true place of emotional freedom. Most of us are highly influenced by 3 to 5 of the past life patterns.

10 Myths About Past Lives

1) We were someone famous

While is sure is interesting (and perhaps a bit ego-gratifying) to find out that we were someone influential in the past, that is certainly not a common occurrence. Most of the time, we think we are connected to a famous or influential person from the past because we lived during their era, knew of them, or even worked with them. Only very rarely were we ever someone of influence ourselves.

2) We have lived only about 10 lives before

Most of us have lived 100s of lives, if not a thousand. We are a soul, learning and growing as we go. Most of us who are interested in any type of self-development are at such a stage in soul evolution where we have lived 100s of lives. Sure there are those who have lived just a few lives. That is usually because they are newer to the process of their soul’s evolution. As we move through the process of soul evolution, we gain understanding and wisdom that comes from each one of our lifetimes. It is not necessary to know about all of your lifetimes. As we move forward with our learning, we have released emotions, energy and behaviors for many of our subsequent lifetimes already. Don’t worry!

3) We can reincarnate as animals

As a soul moves forward in their evolutionary process, they move from the animal kingdom to the human experience. The process does not go in reverse. If you notice your pet is very human like, they are probably on their last incarnation the animal kingdom, and are ready to move on to a human life in their next lifetime.

4) We are always together with the same soul in a relationship

We do not always marry/fall in love with the same soul. Your spouse could have been you child, your parent your teacher, your neighbor, your sibling, your cousin, etc. Just because we are together with someone in this life does not necessarily mean we have been together with them before. Every person who is important in your life is someone whom you have incarnated with before; it just might not be in the same exact role.

5) That what we are experience now is the result of bad karma

There is no “good” karma or “bad” karma. Karma is simply the evening out of energy throughout lifetimes. What that means is that as a soul we are here to experience the other side of situations we have created for others. If we caused someone to go into debt in a past life, we will experience some form of debt in our life now. If we have helped someone get a job in a past life, that same soul will be destined to help us land a job in our current life. The severity if these experiences (meaning how easy or hard they are for us to work through) is determined by how much our Ego fights against them.

6) We have always been the same gender, race and culture

No. We have lived as every culture, race, sexual orientation, gender classification, religion, etc., etc. We are here to experience the fullness of life throughout ALL life experiences. Of all of these qualities listed (and others I may have missed), there is not one way of life that is better than the others. All genders, races, cultures, religions, sexual orientations and other traits or experiences of life are equal. We choose what the parameters of our incarnation will be before we are born. This choice has to do with why we need to live in a certain part of the planet, who will be around us again, and our astrological chart.

7) We move up in economic status as we move through our lifetimes

No. Economic status is not an indicator of an old soul. Just as mentioned above, there is no classification, trait or human experience that is better than the other. Our financial life is determined by our fears, gifts, astrological birth chart, and (most importantly) the ability we have to focus our energy at manifesting what we need, instead of wasting energy on mundane details, petty arguments, gossip, and so forth.

8) There is nothing positive that comes from our past lives

Wrong. We carry wonderful gifts and talents from our past lives. The tasks we learn very easily and the high level skills we have now, come from our past life memories. This is why you see so many entertainers come back as entertainers, musicians come back as musicians, athletes come back as athletes, etc. By understanding your personal past life patterns, you can gain a much better understanding of what your gifts to the world (and to yourself) are.

9) You have to work with a regressionist in order to clear your past life energy

Working with a regressionist is a wonderful and very powerful experience that I do recommend to everyone. However, not everyone is ready to go under hypnosis, or is comfortable with that process. This is why, with Spirit’s help, I have developed the Past Life Patterns; as a method to gain understanding of the behavioral and emotional patterns we have experienced. By understanding where our emotions come from, and why we feel a need to hold onto them, we become equipped to clear them for good.

10) Our current lives have little or no connection to our past lives

Our life now is built upon what lessons we have completed in our past lives, and those we still need to work though. Our past life memories are held onto by the energy body, and are utilized by the Ego the moment we reconnect our soul to the Earth plane (i.e. when our mother experiences the quickening during pregnancy). Most people live 85% of their current life ruled by past life energy of some kind. We are not here to repeat the past, we are here to learn from the experiences we have had before. In order to do that, we do need to understand what our personal past life patterns are, so we can stop repeating the parts of them that are no longer necessary to our life now.
