Persistent & repeating issues could have their origins in another lifetime.
But first – let me just say that this is based on my own personal experience. Both as someone who has had experienced past life trauma and as a therapist/energy healer treating others. I have no scientific evidence to base this on. What I do have, however, is happier and healthier clients.
What is past life trauma & how does it occur?
Past life trauma occurs when we (in a former life) die in a state of anger, unforgiveness, shock, violence etc. No matter if you were the victim or perpetrator, when you died, a part of you was not able to move on in peace because of some unresolved emotion (usually).
How does past life trauma affect us?
Past life trauma creates a weakness in your present day aura. Your aura has many functions, one of which is to protect you. But if your aura has a weak spot – it can’t do its job as effectively and the corresponding mental, emotional, physical area is at greater risk of problems.
What’s an aura? Your aura is like an invisible duplicate body around you made up of energy and it’s how you energetically interact with everything around you.
These weak spots can flare up under the right circumstances or they can be constantly aggravated resulting in repeating patterns/problems in that area of your life/body.
Examples of past life trauma affecting people today
The following are stories about what I have personally experienced or have helped people with as an energy healer.
A client of mine presented with a sore ankle/foot and was unable to walk on it properly. She had visited various doctors and had a series of scans done but they couldn’t find a cause. She was also experiencing some conflict with her mother at the time.
In her energy healing session I could see that her present day mother, had been some sort of guardian figure in a past life as well. In the past life, the guardian had cut off her foot (at the ankle) as a way to keep her under control and ensure she made more money from begging. A common practice in some parts of the world – to maim others to get more money as a beggar. The conflict with the mother now, was for some reason triggering the conflict she had in the past and this was presenting at the ankle. I cleared the past life trauma.
The following day, my client told me that a ring of blisters appeared on her ankle. The blisters were in the same area where her foot had been cut off. The blisters burst and by the following day, the pain in her ankle was gone and she could walk and run as normal.
Neck & shoulder pain
A client was experiencing persistent pain in her neck & shoulders. During her energy healing session I found myself on a battle field watching as she took the impact of an enormous sword in that area of her body. After releasing that trauma her pain was went immediately. You can read more about that in this blog post.
Lower back & abdomen
In this lifetime, 90% of my medical/physical problems show up in my sacral area. Whether it’s lower back pain, painful periods or the frequent UTIs I experienced in my 20s. It’s pretty clear that my ‘Achilles heal’ is my sacral. It’s a part of my body that needs extra love and kindness and over the years I’ve had flashbacks of the past lives that have caused this weakness. Since learning energy healing to treat myself and getting treated by others, I’ve released some of the trauma stored in my body. And in doing so this part of my body has healed and become stronger.
My client suffered from negative and very critical internal dialogue. He was very hard on himself and always had been. He also suffered from Hashimoto’s Disease…which some people say is the energetic result of negative self talk. I’m not an expert on that, but thought it was an interesting co-incidence. In his distance energy healing session, I found that his ‘negative self talk’ was coming from 2 beings who felt hard done by in a past life. Turns out my client had betrayed them in some way in a former life and they died with hearts full of vengeance. And as pay back, they were harassing him from the other side. What my client thought were his negative thoughts, were actually from 2 characters who were wanting to cause havoc. After clearing the two characters, my clients mindset improved dramatically within 24hrs.
It’s one of the saddest past lives I’ve been witness to and it still makes me emotional to think about it. It was the life of two sisters who took their own lives to escape a life of servitude and abuse in a time when women had little to no rights. In present day, the sisters were my client and her mother – both of whom had failed relationships and struggled with finding good partners. You can read that story in full here.
And then there’s my own past life experiences with an ex who betrayed me many times in many lifetimes, but ultimately it was me who had the power to stop the cycle. Because it was me who had created it in the first place You can read about that here.
How to heal past life trauma
There are two things (in my view) that hold the key to releasing past life trauma.
First: your body needs to be ready to let it go
It can take a while for that to happen as our body’s have spent so long protecting us. Personally I find that the body will give you a signal if it’s ready. Like a weird, persistent yet mild pain. Painful enough to be very annoying – with a possible slight tingling sensation. Or you can also help the body to slowly trust the process by having a series of energy healing treatments. I find it usually takes about 4-6 sessions for noticeable difference.
Second: your ability to forgive.
The single common theme in all the cases I’ve seen is that we have died holding a grudge of some sort. Regardless of if we were the victim or the perpetrator; we died without forgiving:
- the other people involved,
- the circumstances that created the situation,
- the sh*tty time we found ourselves in….everything.
We take it all so very personally. Which given that it usually resulted in our deaths is understandable.
But here’s the thing – NONE OF IT IS PERSONAL. It’s not about you, or me, or them. We chose to come to Earth and have that experience for our souls growth.
We choose to stay in the trap of victimhood. Because we think it’s all about us. This keeps us stuck repeating a lesson that carries through time and space. But we don’t have to be.
My secret to releasing the trauma is to connect with the pain and help your former self to understand that you were asked by the universe to fulfil a role – like an actor in a play. You knew full well coming in what would be required of you, and yet you had the courage to come anyway. And for that, you are to be celebrated and congratulated. Because no matter how it ended – you achieved your goal. You played the role to perfection. And if the universe/God is proud of you, you should be too. So it’s ok to forgive yourself. It’s ok to forgive the other people, the circumstances, the time you found yourself in. And when you do that, you replace the hate and fear with love and forgiveness, and that part of you that is stuck in the horror lets go and returns home into the light.
