In her book, Past Lives, Present Dreams, Denise Linn gives several suggestions for how we can learn about our past lives. My suggestion is to journal all of your experiences, no matter how trival they may seem to you. Pay particular attention to your emotions as you journal, as they may be indicators of what is past life related and what is not. As you work on uncovering/discovering your past lives, you will have a written records to help you put the pieces together. Look into your present life for clues to things that could originate from a past life. Make a list of likes and dislikes having to do with childhood games, clothing styles, architecture, food preferences, architecture, geographic interests, climates, cultures, historical events/time periods, deja vu experiences, occupations, talents/abilities, race/heritage, books/films, animals/pets, personality traits/mannerisms, fears/phobias, injuries/diseases/scars. Pay attention to your dreams because when we sleep our subconscious comes wide awake. Many have experienced vivid dreams that are obvious past lives, while others may get subtle clues. Sometimes past and present will mix in a dream, thus contains symbolism that might be important to both the past and now. You can also set your dream intent to learn about your past lives by simply suggesting this to yourself before sleep. Meditate and focus on learning all you can about your past lives- be sure to listen to your emotions and feelings, as they are can be an indicator of whether something is past life related.
