I have never been attuned with my body. Many of us here were probably considered "old souls" from birth. I feel like...every year I get older, the more disconnected I feel from my physical vessel and the more I remember who I was before. Like floodgates opening each and every year. Shouldn't human beings progress by self actualising themselves as their soul matures in this lifetime? I am going backwards. I am a 28 year old male this year and I know that around this age I passed away in my past life when I was in a female vessel. I've always known who I was "before". A lot of her old habits were transported to this life and I feel like I am going back to that same person, both good and bad traits. Shouldn't I be learning from my past life? Why am I repeating the same lifestyle pattern? Every time I look in the mirror I expect my old self looking back at me however I'm there standing looking at who I am presently. Skin tone, eye colour, gender, hair colour, everything that once was is now completely opposite staring back. It hurts so much. It hurts so much that each and every day I feel more disconnected than ever between my universal soul and current physical vessel. This goes beyond body dysmorphia. I am not transgender by any means. I am a sane individual, good job, friends, family, no mental disorders, I rationalise, and do not take any drugs or medications. I am consciously aware of this disconnect and I am reaching out for some guidance. How do I reconcile my current soul and current body and make peace with who I am today? I must let go of my old appearance. I did go through a past life regression session and everything I knew deep down all along was confirmed. From appearance to point of death. I was right all along.
