    Thank you Karoliina! Upon reflection I can see that but while deep inside the PL it feels that way. Does that makes sense? The 'me' today realizes it! BTW, I have a Swedish gr. grandmother named Carolina :)

    This is probably a question we should all ask ourselves once in a while. ;)

    So far the biggest thing it's helped with is understanding why I made some of the decisions that I did in the past in this life. For example: when I was a kid I HATED school. Most days it was literally a fight to get me to go. I did well in school when I was there so it wasn't that I couldn't handle the work or anything like that. I just HATED (yes that needs to be capitalized) it. Add to that my dad in this life was a violent alcoholic and it made for some really bad childhood moments....I have my dads boot print in my skull in this life from being kicked after he knocked me unconscious.


    In my last life my father (of that life, not the same guy/soul as this life) was against drinking and was a very nice guy. I remember him getting very angry at some guy who mentioned sending me away to school and was trying to push Christianity at him. We moved a long ways away after that to avoid those two situations and to live according to our beliefs (American Indian). Towards the end of that life it was becoming obvious that I/we could no longer do that and I was very angry and actually still am.


    So in this life when my long held beliefs collided with a violent, alcoholic father and mandatory school attendance it didn't go so well for me. The older I got the more stubborn I got and was actually pretty proud of my stubborness. My daily motto was usually 'make me' or ' you'll have to find me first'. There wasn't a beating or threat in the world that would sway me. After I was old enough to legally make my own decisions I mellowed out some and even went to college for a few years. The past life that I remember definitely explained why I was being the way I was as a kid and anyone who would've listened to me as a young kid probably would have expected it. My parents in this life didn't believe in reincarnation and always told me I had a big imagination. Then would push me out of the room or say 'go play'.

    This thread has been really interesting. :) It also cements for me how this knowledge has helped.


    Well, like many of us, my feelings and knowings came spontaneously. I later followed up on these, and the perspective I have gotten and am getting on my feelings, relationships to others and the world, fears, and so on as a result of my soul's journey has been so valuable. One of the most important things I learned was what Brian Weiss had said in one of his books--the things you fear are often from your past, not the unknown future you are projecting your fears on.


    I'm also a huge fan of introspection, and exploring past lives and feelings is rewarding in that sense. It helps me to understand where I'm coming from. :)

    Like some others I don't remember not knowing about past lives because I have been like this since childhood (although I did not know 'what it was' I just felt very old and knew lots of things about 'the world', but did not really understand why). It used to make me feel a bit of an outsider, as I find most people very immature in many ways and indeed, I still do. However, I wouldn't exchange my situation. No way.


    Having this knowledge is really a great advantage. I have absolutely no fear of death for example, which is amazingly liberating and saves a lot of brain space for more important things. When something goes wrong in my life, I often have a very good measure of how much worse things could be because of various memories of disaster from the past. I understand deeply how every inconvenience is truly temporary.


    Having this knowledge, this long memory, gives life a strangely 'crunchy' and complex texture. I have a very long and deep relationship and abiding love for this planet. Relationships with people I have known before, even when they mostly don't remember me, are so much deeper and more vivid to me than they would probably be otherwise.


    I have vast stores of resilience and wisdom and courage (lucky me) because I have 'paid my dues' many times over with various forms of suffering. When something bothers 'me' I just cast back through my 'back catalogue' and consider how one of the other 'me's' would have dealt with such a situation (usually with either a shrug of the shoulders or a laugh at such a small problem!). Some of my former selves have been very, very tough and I have 'inherited' their strength.


    I understand men very, very well, having been one myself many times. I 'get' how they 'tick'. I know what drives them and how they think and why they behave the way they do. They often find this startling which amuses me no end! :)

    I think PL knowledge helps me to understand the choices I've made, and to make better choices in life. That is my goal anyway, this time around, to make better choices.

    For me it is the opposite. I understand females well having been one many times. I can't say that I always get it, but I think I'm more understanding and in tune than a lot of the guys I know. Some of them are completely clueless when it comes to women. :rolleyes:

    After reading past life books I thought that my life will be changed just like the cases in books instantly and will cure and resolve problems and be pain free. So I had the same feeling as first posted by JRainsnow.


    Well it seems like some of the cases we read in the books especially if they are not children it takes some time for healing and understanding and all the healings that we read about did not happen overnight.


    For my own life knowing that this is not my only life first of all made me feel so much better because as a child it was very annoying for me to see some people were born in miserable families and had miserable lives while others had better lives and one random life out of random chance did not make sense to me.


    Then I came to realize that if some physical conditions don't get cured by medicine or medical field does not have a answer for them[ like a doctor told me they have a phrase for conditions they don't understand call it stupidiology :eek::confused:q6gif ] it may have roots in past lives and I am working on myself little by little , and understanding more about how to accept them and how without self hatred or blame find the reasons behind them and fix them.


    Life makes so much more sense to me now and also I am learning not to be judgemental since I may have been in the very person's shoes that I am judging in another life or lives.


    In general I can see and understand more aspects of life in the light of reincarnation. I have seen myself being burnt in a few lives, being a cruel caveman :rolleyes:, and here I am again this time around helping others and doing my best not to hurt someone and be more forgiving.


    I could go on forever but maybe later I will post some more about my past life experinces when I do more regressions.


    Great topic, would love to hear about How past life knowledge has helped everybody else.


    :)

    Hi Rainbowseahorse!

    My feelings exactly. Do you also feel that you are seeing meaning or purpose in your life, in real time, as you relate to others around you. Sometimes, I feel like I understand the purpose of a conversation or chance encounter with someone while we are talking and I sense how that ties in with where our paths are going - seems strange to me.

    Every once in a while when I am in tune I do sense something like you described Stardis.

    I believe that my past lives have now given me the ability to be able to learn languages quickly and well. Both Russian and Finnish, especially, ring ultra-true with me - even when I was learning both of those languages by myself, mostly just teaching myself, as a kid, I swear that I knew plenty of words, perhaps even a hundred or more of both languages, and what they meant even before I looked them up in a dictionary, or anything like that. Karoliina, if you're reading this - I can't remember if it was you for sure, but I think I read on one of your earlier posts somewhere in this forum that you had similar experiences when it came to English. Is that right...?

    Raakel, a somewhat similar experience, but not quite. :)


    I was able to have long discussions in English before I ever started to learn it at school, but living in Finland - as you probably know - you hear English everywhere, because, for example, all the American and British films and TV shows are subtitled, not dubbed (and because I could read from the age of 3, I could watch TV, read the subtitles and hear English at the same time), and most music you hear is in English.


    So I think I did pick it up very easily comparing to many others, but it was not as mysterious as in your case, as I was hearing a lot of English around me. :)

    A good question for reflection. Do any new members have something to add?

    Although I don't have any concrete memories, only a handful of insights from dreams. I've found that knowledge of life as a series of cycles makes me more inclined to forgive and let go when I need to. In what I suppose is a strategy for attempting not to have to go through the same thing in the next lifetime. Could definitely backfire on me.


    It also makes me understand myself, my irrational fear of fire could stem from something and not be as irrational as it seems.


    I've enjoyed reading this thread. :thumbsup:


    Now that I think of it again, it has made me feel less crazy especially a recognition I had with someone over a year ago. It was proof. And it made my life feel bigger somehow. A link in a chain.

    After having the privilege of a past life regression with Carol Bowman this past Summer, I have noticed marked changes in one particular area that has plagued me since very early childhood. I couldn't stand the thought of anything coming at my face like a ball, or a hand, or anything for that matter. Although I played ball with the other boys, I had a hard time catching anything.


    After the session with Carol, however, I have had no problem catching things that are thrown to me across the room, such as TV Remotes, medicine bottles, flashlights, etc. This change caught my wife and I quite by surprise, and I can only account for this change after the session in which I was seeing myself on a warship, being hit by wood splinters after a very large iron cannonball blasted through the rail beside me.


    In more general terms, the concept of Reincarnation has provided great comfort in the future and a sense of hope that there is justice in life without fear of death and the loss of loved ones.

    This is an interesting, thought provoking thread. I guess I have always had dreams and visions and imaginings that helped me, even though I didn't know what they were or where they were coming from. I've had difficult times growing up, always moving around, so always the stranger and new kid in school, and I was always timid and shy, which didn't make it easier. Thinking about and imagining I was, or was with, the people I dreamt about, helped me find the strength to stand up for myself amongst all the turmoil and resist the depths of loneliness.


    I dreamt about Charles and Catherine shortly after starting university, and again, trying to stand up and make my own way whilst fighting the timidity and loneliness trying to keep me back. They MADE me research them, in a way, and I know it sounds strange, but it was through finding Catherine, and realising just how much she went through in her life that I was able to imagine myself as her, tread in her footsteps, and hold my chin up and seek my inner strength in times of trouble. i know that she did, and having seen her, I know that I can do the same. Plus, I was begining to have all kinds of questions building in my mind about what it was and what it all meant, and who WERE these people? and finding Charles and Catherine, and then Sateyapainyanke and her granddaughter, led eventually to my coming here and finding somewhere to ask them! ;)

    Yes this is such a wonderful interesting thread which causes one to really think and ponder. There has been many interesting replies.


    Now as for myself, it is a really wonderful answer and reason for my many quirks that I personally have in my life. Also to myself, it has always made just so much perfect sense. The thought that we only live one life then that's it has never made much sense to me. The thought of who we really are beyond this one life but in the past, and in also in the future gives me quite some comfort for life holds so incredibly much.

    PL knowledge has helped me see the error of my ways.

    Over four years ago I was confident, aggressive and certain of my abilities and my beliefs. PL knowledge changed that. Now I am a broken man but I've learned so much that I didn't know before.

    I read people talking of the healing that comes with PL memories. I've found that those memories have opened up wounds, not healed them. I had no idea how much crap I have to deal with. Now I do.

    After an overactive weekend on the forum I'm not so sure if PL knowledge has helped me. Getting it all out after years of silence has also opened up wounds, too many of them, and I had a night of terror again. Yesterday I would have said PL knowledge has helped a lot, today the pain of it is making life hard. When people are chatting away on the forum it's interesting and one can get caught up in it and say too much. I might have done that.
    So at the moment the jury's out.
