As a past life reader and regressionist I've seen a lot; and a lot of it ain't pretty. I'm talking about the past lives that some people have gone through. These past lives can be traumatic, heart-breaking, painful, unfair and testing.
The soul is an extremely resilient part of us. Going through all of our past life traumas, our soul somehow manages to continue to reincarnate and retains the desire to live through more Earth-bound experiences. These experiences are often noted as being 'soul-destroying'; that's not the case though. These experiences in fact enhance, enlighten and advance our souls more than we know realise; it doesn't break them.
When reading past lives I have nearly seen it all: suicide, domestic violence, drawn and quartered people, decapitation, drowning, burning, hanging, severe loneliness, severe heart-break, loss of a child etc. etc. etc. The list goes on, and it still surprises me when I see something new when I read or regress someone.
Not all past lives that we go through are traumatic. There are most certainly pleasant lives that we've lived. The lives that come through in a past life reading or regression are usually the traumatic ones though as these lives are the ones that leave an imprint on our soul. The traumatic event of a particular lifetime tends to directly affect our current life at some point.
An example of this is in the case of a woman who I previously read for. She found that all of a sudden she started finding it hard to eat because she'd get a choking feeling and find it difficult to swallow food. This had never been an issue before but was directly linked to her being poisoned in a past life. It had manifested later on in life rather than being a problem from birth. Her past life, and death, was the reincarnation that came through in the reading as it was directly affecting this life for her.
There are only a handful of things that can be done to heal past lives. All of these things require you to become aware of what happened in in the first place. Past life regression is the best method of healing past life trauma. It takes you through the lifetime, makes you re-experience the trauma and then requires you to heal the trauma or reconfigure it. Past life readings do the same but on a lesser scale. Most past life traumas can be healed over time with continuous regression and healing.
So if you are suffering from any fears, bad relationships or other situations that are affecting your life then maybe it is stemming from a past life. It is most definitely fixable though, and don't feel like you're going crazy because of some issue that has reared it's ugly head all of a sudden. Most people are affected by some problem caused by a past reincarnation.
Blessings, love, light & goodnight
