I've always tended to be a fence-sitter about the issue of working with past lives, whether through hypnosis or dowsing or any other method. Is it real? How do I know I'm not kidding myself and making things up? Isn't it all just metaphorical anyway? However, a friend of mine has just shown me a really powerful way of working with the present day feelings that hold us back from expressing and living our true divine God nature.
I do believe though, that nothing comes from nowhere in our minds. If dreams are ways of communicating between unconscious and conscious, then so can past life visualisations. However, I was always expecting it to come to me like a blinding revelation, so when I was told to go and CREATE a scenario, I didn't really believe it would have any validity. But, as my friend pointed out, past lives are created by emotion.
So, to work with your feelings, create a scenario that involves them e.g. loneliness, powerlessness, guilt, fear of betrayal, fear of rejection. It tends to work out as a short scene where you can look at what's going on? How do you feel in your role in this scenario? Who are the main protagonists?
Sit with it and breathe into it. Allow those feelings to come up and play out in the scenario.
I personally like to facilitate the resulting emotional release with EFT, but each one of us has our own preferred way of healing.
It's worked well for me and others I've shared it with. I look forward to hearing from others on their experiences, thoughts and beliefs around past life scenarios.
with love and gratitude
