As Empaths you may find this interesting. I wont bore you with the details of a recent experience I had, however, the conclusion I drew from it could help others.
It occurred to me (after some contemplation) that just like an Empath is challenged to differentiate between their own feelings and the feelings of others they are picking up in public, something similar can be at play with respect to your own past lives.
Some of the strong feelings you may be picking up may not originate from someone around you in the room, but instead signal a deep unresolved hurt from a past life.
For those of us who have had many many past lives, and chose to live lives that did not necessarily involve a common theme, this life may initially appear confusing. It can be rather difficult to find that path that everyone is talking about.
You get a very strong feeling, and thinkshould I do something with this?. If in your current life you happen to be preoccupied with a subject (which I found myself to be at the present), you can easily think that your current strong feeling may be a sign or something that you need to apply what you are feeling in the direction of your current thinking.
If we quickly act on the strong feelings we are picking up (instead of contemplating them and trying to place them), we could actually side track from our current goals or path.
I doubt that I or anyone else would come back to a life to repeat the exact same path that was previously pursued. What would be the growth in that? So, one needs to ask the question why am I feeling this way?. Is this a new direction for me, or an OLD one I am touching on to remind me of something.
I guess, what I am trying to say here is that meditating on the issue or simply clearing your mind and giving the thoughts time to percolate, so to speakcan be of benefit to us in this life.
Think, do, think instead of Do, think, Do [For me at least, this has caused less messes].
The above may help (or confuse) Empaths. However, if you have started to see your past lives, and quite a few of them, you will have to take the time to sort out past work from a current, new and meaningful path or direction.
