Past life soul retrieval is something that I don't see much about in the literature that's out there about psychic development, but it's something that I've been trained to do, and I think it's a useful thing to have in one's psychic toolbox.
First, a little about reincarnation. I was raised Catholic, raised to believe that this life is all that we get, and after death there's... you know... heaven, hell, purgatory, or whatever. As I've studied other belief systems and through the work I've done with my own psychic development, I've come to look at this issue as one of levels of perception.
Examples of Levels of Perception
A.) Life is what we can perceive with our five senses. We are born, live, and die. What exists before life and after death is either 1) unknowable or 2) heaven/hell/purgatory/some other infinite holding tank for our eternal souls.
B.) Our eternal souls are separate and distinct from other souls. Our eternal souls, in our wish to grow, learn, change, and help others grow, learn, and change, choose to come into a physical life from time to time. Some of these lives are in human bodies.We are spiritual beings having a human experience, not human beings having a spiritual experience.
C.) Our souls are nothing but waves in the ocean of the all that is, the creative force (God, if you like) that underlies and sustains all existence. All lives that have ever been lived anywhere- past, present, and future - are all expressions of ourselves. We are one with everything and everything is one with us. Everything that you see is another version of you.
All of these levels of perception are correct, from a certain point of view. For the purpose of this exercise, we are going to use Level of Perception B.
Okay, now that we're all on the same perception page, let's talk about why past lives are important to know about. The short of it is that when we experience trauma, whether in this life or in past lives, a "chunk" of our soul gets stuck in that experience and continues to try to deal with it, even in death. Often, because our soul is eternal and transcends this lifetime, echoes of these traumas show up in our current lifetime and we play out emotional and behavioral patterns that stem from these situations in these past lives. When we heal the past life trauma, weprevent the echo of that traumafrom impactingour current lifetime.
The goalof past life soul retrieval (and current life soul retrieval, too, for that matter) is to get to a point where the only trauma thatour soul isdealing with is the one we're experiencing in the present moment. For some people, this means doing hundreds of past life soul retrievals. I started to see subtle differences in my life with the first retrieval, and major differences after about 20 retrievals over a period of a few years. Most often, the changes created by a past life soul retrieval are subtle, sort of like a small course correction aboard a sailing vessel. It's only with time that the different trajectory becomes noticeable.
This week's assignment is to do at least onepast life soul retrieval on yourself. The steps are outlined in this blog entrythat I posted last year and updated with links today.
As I was contemplating this week's topic, I thought that it might be beneficial for you all to see an example of how a past life soul retrieval works in practice. Toward that, Iwill do a past life soul retrieval for the first person to volunteer in a reply to this thread. The reading will be public and posted as a reply here, so be prepared for that because past life retrieval readings will sometimes provoke strong emotions for the person requesting the reading. It may take me several days to respond - I have a lot on my plateat the moment - so if you're not the person that requested the reading, check back later or click "follow" at the bottom of the page if you'd like to be notified when I post the reading. If I have extra time, I will do one retrieval for each additional person that volunteers, on a first-come-first-served basis. [Update 9/1/2013: Reading requests are now closed on this thread. However,a private reading request can be made through the Made by Empaths store. Thank you!]
As you do your self-retrievals, I'd love to hear from you! Post a reply with what you thought about the exercise. Did the life that you saw pertain to some issue(s) that you're dealing with right now? How did you feel, emotionally, during the process of figuring out what was going on in the past life? Was it difficult to convince your past life self to cross over? Do you think that you will do another retrieval on yourself at some point?
One last thing... This is the last exercise in the "self" section of this workshop. I have a couple of additional optional lessonsthat I'm going to postwhen I have time (about soul agreements and energetic cords), but next week we're going to move on to learning how to do psychic readings. Next week's lesson will be practice on receiving and interpreting initial impressions. If you're not interested in using your psychic ability to do readings for others, you can still follow along, or not, as you like. Many thanks to all of you that have been taking time out of your busy lives to participate in the workshop. I hope that it's been fun, challenging, and educational for you.
