Aside from going through a past life regression session, there is another technique you can use to see what you looked like in one of your past lives. This technique is called Past Life Appearance Viewing, and although it doesn't give the same insight and depth of knowledge into a past life as a regression session does, it can be a rewarding experience which can help strengthen your confidence in other spiritual practices.
Past Life Appearance Viewing will let you see what you looked like in your past life, and in some rare instances it can give insight into events which were happening around you at the time. Past Life Appearance Viewing can be performed as little or as often as you wish. So lets get started!...
What You'll Need:
A large square or circular mirror (I prefer a circular mirror but either is fine. The bigger the better!)
One large pillar candle (black or white in colour)
A comfortable chair for you to sit on
Quiet surroundings and a dark room
Lets Get Viewing:
As with any spiritual work I highly recommend that you ground and protect yourself before you get started. A simple prayer asking your guides to protect you and connect you to the Earth will usually suffice. Wearing plain clothing also helps immensely with this exercise, so it's probably best to ditch the loud red floral print shirt for now.
The room needs to be set up with the mirror sitting opposite a blank wall and at a height where you will be able to see yourself from at least the chest up while sitting on your chair in front of the mirror. Place the lit, single pillar candle to one side of the mirror (either side is fine, whichever feels more comfortable for you). This should be your only source of light in the room while performing this exercise.
Once you have set up and done your grounding and protection work sit comfortably in the chair, close your eyes and take some deep breaths in and out before beginning so that you can focus.
When you are ready to begin you can open your eyes and look into the mirror. You should focus lightly on the area just above your right shoulder not directly at your own face, as your peripheral vision will be what picks up the image. Trying not to blink too often helps a lot to bring about your past life image also.
Your image may come to you very clearly or it may be a bit blurry. This usually depends on how connected this particular past life is to your current life. Past lives which are directly effecting your current life right now can throw up extremely clear images and also show events happening in the background.
You can stay viewing your past life for as long as the image holds or for as long as you wish. My past life viewings can take anywhere from a few minutes to half an hour. It all depends on how settled and comfortable I am at the time, so basically there is no right or wrong when it comes to how long you need to sit there. Sometimes an image will appear and then fade away. This is usually dependent on your level of focus and how strong the meaning of the past life is to your current life.
Achieving success with pulling up a past life image can take anywhere from 30 seconds to 20 minutes. The more you practice the faster you'll get, so don't be put off when you first start with this exercise. As with anything it takes practice and patience.
I hope you all enjoy this viewing exercise and I look forward to hearing from you all about your experiences with it. Remember to be vigilant with your grounding and protection prior to performing this and to use this exercise to grow yourself spiritually. Practical exercises are always a great way to boost your confidence in these areas and hopefully I'll be able to give you some more of these types of exercises in the future.
Love, light and blessings
