Past Life Regression: How to Remember Past Lives

The belief that we’ve lived before and that our soul moves from one body to the next has also crossed over religions and permeated western culture. Think about this—we are made up of energy, just like everything else in the Universe. Wasn’t it Einstein who said energy can be transmuted but never truly dies? So once we die, is that all? Or is our life force, our base energy, transported elsewhere? Perhaps it searches for the next best vessel…another human body! Learn how to remember your past lives here and be able to do informal past life regression yourself.

Past Life Regression: Memories in Dreams

One of the easiest ways to do a self past life regression is to analyze your dreams. Do you have any recurring dreams? Think about where this dream takes place. Is it somewhere you’ve never been but seems familiar? Record this dream and try to find an actual location. This could be a clue as to where you lived one of your past lives. The dream itself might even be a memory or an amalgamation of memories from your past life.

Dreams are understood as subconscious messages to the conscious mind. Dreams are also memories from your past lives floating up to the surface. Keep a dream journal. You may be saying, “I don’t dream that much”, but in reality everyone dreams every night. It’s just most of us don’t remember them.

Start a Dream Journal for Past Lives

Start by writing down your most recent dream. From there, keep writing down the ones you remember. Before long, your dream recall will be at an all-time high – up to 4 dreams a night! Use this as a guide. You can go back and read over your dreams and find emerging patterns. Are you in the same place in this dream? Is the same theme happening? You’ll start to see how these dreams help you remember past lives.

Remember past lives through dreams. Keep a dream journal.

Past life memories in dreams pop up for those who are clairvoyant.

Past Life Regression With Personality Evaluation

In this life we have many interests. Likes and dislikes. Often these things push us into certain occupations and lifestyles. Maybe you’re a doctor. A lawyer. A singer or musician. Maybe you’re a secretary. A veterinarian. A soldier. It is possible and quite likely your occupation or passions in this life echo occupations and passions from one or more of your past lives.

Passions and Interests

Past life regression on your own is as easy as evaluating passions in this life. Think about the one thing you are most passionate about. The one thing you would do to make yourself happy no matter what. For me, it is writing. Writing has been a part of me since I was a child. It is my passion and something I couldn’t stop doing if I tried. If I don’t write, I feel unfulfilled. Sometimes depressed. Do you have an interest or passion that makes you feel this way? If so, you probably had the same passion in a past life that has carried through to this life.

By identifying your interests, you can remember past lives. A friend of mine loves to look at the night sky. He has had a fascination with the stars and space since he was a child and his favorite gift was a telescope. Come to find out, one of his past lives was one in which he was a “star-gazer” or an ancient astronomer. A person who would gaze and analyze the heavens in order to teach his tribe.

Likes and Dislikes

In addition, your basic likes and dislikes can also be remnants of past lives carried through to the present life. This can include the food that you like, places you’ve visited, the type of friends you have and the partners you choose. Do you love potatoes? Sushi? Mediterranean food? Think about the cultures or places where these foods originate. Have you been drawn to these cultures? This is indicative of a past life.

Past life regression on yourself includes dreams.

Remember Past Lives Through Fears and Scars

Another area of your current life that you should evaluate is unfounded fears or phobias. Sometimes this will tell you how you died in a past life or another traumatic experience. For instance, if you have an phobia of deep water or drowning but never had water trauma in this life, perhaps you died by drowning in a past life. This is a pretty common fear. Another common one is the fear of heights. Often people who have this fear don’t know why they feel this way. It’s possible they fell from a high cliff or building in a past life. Physical evidence of a past life injury is also possible. If you have a large birthmark on your body, this is a mark that you’ve carried from a past life. For example, a large brown spot on your back indicates a place where you were stabbed or shot in a past life.

    What you said about phobias and fears indicating past life experiences is something I have seen for sure. Also, things we are fearful to do or experience now can be indicative of past life trauma. Nicely written article.
