What to Expect from Your Past Life Reading?

Having a past life reading can be an awkward experience, to say the least! Even though your soul is the same in every life, you are an entirely different person. This can be a bit of a complicated concept to grasp and you can find a lot of very useful information about how it works on the internet. The point here is, you may not relate to that person at all, you may not feel any sympathy for them, you may not relate to them at all and that is perfectly okay and natural.

Do not expect to feel an immediate connection with the events and energies that are brought up during a past life reading. The fact that it doesn’t resonate with you doesn’t mean that it is not accurate! You need to bring a very open mind to a past life reading and be ready to not judge the information that you receive.

This is less common, but it can be a really emotional time and it can feel a bit like a proverbial slap in the face, so be ready to be kind with yourself and take it easy should it happen.

What is a Regression Session and How Does it Work?

A regression session is a technique that uses hypnosis or deep meditation in order to help a person access memories from a past life - also known as Akashic Archives.

The person in charge of the session will induce a hypnotic or deeply meditative state to the one who is having the regression done. This is conducted by reassuring the person that they are in a safe space and that they are not in any sort of danger so they become ready to embrace the experience, and then slowly introducing them into their past life memories, usually through a series of questions that allow the person to explore their past situation. While the subject is in trance, the hypnotist will record the session either with a recorder or by taking notes.

A regression session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to hours, but the subject is never “trapped” in the trance and they can get out if the regression is more than they can handle. It is completely safe and the subject is never in any sort of danger.

The main difference between a past life tarot reading and a past life regression is that the first one will be like listening to an audio-book and the second one will be more like acting in a movie. This is hearing the experience from a third party versus experiencing it by yourself.

Advantages of Past Life Reading

When you get a past life reading you gain great understanding about yourself and the experiences that you are having in your current lifetime and this can bring several advantages, such as:

  • Heightened empathy: When you get in touch with who you were in a past life, you develop the skill of walking a mile in someone else’s shoes easier than you did before. It becomes easier for you to understand other people’s situations, thoughts, and motives.
  • Knowing thyself: Your awareness about your train of thought, your actions and your reactions increases, allowing you to have greater control over them than you did before.
  • Speeding up karmic cycles: Knowing the lessons that you’re carrying from your past life and the ones that you’re going through now gives you a very valuable hint to make tangible progress in your life, break patterns and solve situations that you’re carrying from the past.

Connection of the past with your present life

The whole idea behind past life readings is helping you in your current lifetime. The information gained during a past life reading is aimed at connecting your past life with your present life, helping you gain knowledge about your own behavior. For instance, if you died an untimely death in your past life, it is possible that this is manifesting in your current life by being extra cautious about things you wouldn’t otherwise give much thought to, or if you are inexplicably afraid of bodies of water, it may be due to a past life in which you drowned.

The same applies to relationships that are meaningful yet complicated, with people that we carry from our past life. A past life tarot reading or a past life regression can help you identify the source of your troubles with certain people so that you have the chance to learn your lessons and continue to the next stage of your relationships or move on.

Past life readings are not meant for you to feel bad about what you did or didn’t do while being someone else, but to expand your consciousness in this life and speed up the evolution of your soul!

It is easier to feel that a past life regression is a real deal than to have the same conviction about a past life reading. The reason is that while the first one is an experience that you go through yourself, the second one is a story told by someone else that cannot be immediately contrasted.

  • You are able to identify patterns that sound familiar: Even though you were a different person, your soul, the core of your being, was still the same and it is usual that you carry similar behaviors from time to time. If you’re able to identify patterns - for better or worse! - you’re probably having an accurate past life reading.

However, you must bear in mind that Christian doctrine has changed over the centuries, sometimes to serve higher interests, and many early Christians did actually believe in reincarnation!
