Sometimes, the trauma that we experience in a past life can carry on through future incarnations. I grew up swimming in pools, lakes and the ocean - it was something I enjoyed. I remember about 14 years ago I was in Greece and had jumped off the boat I was on and into the water. I was treading water and realized that the lower portions of my body were really cold, whereas the upper part of me was still warm. This made sense as I was in deep water, but all of a sudden, I was struck with fear. That fear didn't leave me. Every time I would swim in the ocean over the next few years, I would have this petrified fear take over. I don't like fear very much, so I decided to face it by learning how to scuba dive - in the Great Barrier Reef of all places (full of fish and jellyfish that can kill you). This did help me a little bit with my fear, but the nagging sensation was still there. About 9 years later, I was in a past life regression where I felt myself die while swimming in the ocean. My fear became clear to me and made sense. Something about that day back in Greece had triggered a past life trauma memory and it affected my experience in this life.
There was also a time in my late 20's when I would wake up in the middle of the night and see a spider hanging over me. To my mind, it was very real and very terrifying. After what felt like an eternity, the spider would disappear into thin air. This went on frequently for over a year. It was so frustrating because I couldn't figure out why I kept seeing this. Fast forward about 1.5 years later, I was having a Reiki session and had mentioned the spider issue. My Reiki practitioner was able to see into a past life where I had been imprisoned and starved to death. There were spiders all over my cell. I had been left there by a lover. It turns out the past life lover was someone I was close to in my present life at the time of the spider visions. In this case, the spiders were acting like a warning - to be careful of low self-esteem and to draw my boundaries - both of which were issues from the past life and my present life. When I got this message, I never saw the spiders again.
I've learned a lot from my own past life experiences and from working with clients. I have learned that time travel is possible. I have learned that we actually can change the past - not the events per se, but the fallout from the events. It has occurred in many sessions where I will see a client's past life and we will have to do emotional repair work that ends up helping the past incarnation as well as the present one. Often, we will use visualization where I describe the situation of the past life to the client and ask that they visualize that they are there. Usually I ask them to comfort or hold space for their past incarnated self while we release the emotional trauma. I remember one time when a client and I were in one of these visualizations and the past incarnated self looked at me and said, "I can see him" (meaning the client). This left me dumbstruck. I'm used to the past incarnations seeing me, but to see the client as well, it blew my mind. Through these sessions, it became clear to me that we can travel to past lives and that by doing the emotional release work, we can change how it affects both the past and present incarnations of the person I'm working with. It just goes to show that the wonders, perplexities and mysteries of life never cease to amaze.
