    Hallo,

    Is it possible to gain access to abilities we developed in past incarnations? In every life we have to learn things like walking, talking, reading, driving the car,.... anew. But why actually?

    I think I had many past incarnations, e.g. I lived in France. But why can’t I speak French today? And is there a possibility to get older talents back resp. to reactivate abilities you had in a past existence?

    A warm welcome to you, billeurope!

    Interesting question, I have been wondering the same.
    Why do we have to re-learn so much from scratch?

    I have heard from people who were able to learn PL-related skills relatively fast.
    Maybe there is a way to retrieve past skills if we really want to and need them for our current incarnation?

    EDIT: Wish I knew. Would be interested myself.

    I believe that's because those are physical related abilities, so they're brain related, not mind related. But even mind related abilities aren't remembered, because you're more driven by your brain, not your mind, part of your subconscious.

    I think I had such experiences too – but I’m not sure whether I learned just fast of PL-related-fast.



    It might surprise you but: I do not believe in brains! (although I'm studying psychology)
    I’m not 100% sure, but I think literally everything that’s content of my consciousness origins from my soul: thoughts + feelings + perceptions + sensations. Also my subconsciousness is generated by my soul, not the brain. If you would ask me, why we even have a brain, I would say: In best case it’s a kind of relay between body and soul – if at all.
    I this sense, I think EVERYTHING we learned in past lives could be reactivated. But I alos think the major constriction is because the soul doesn’t want old abilities to be retrieved – life would be too easy then. And the main purpose of being incarnated is to experience suffer, pain, exhaustion, and frustration (for example while learning the same old things again and again and again forever...).

    Actually in my case things have been done to STOP using abilities from past lives. For example, writing and piano playing, so I now have a hand speed 75% slower then the average person. I can write, but it takes me ages, don't know about piano playing, but it took me ages to use the computer keyboard, a sort of piano substitute.
    Generally the skills you had in a past life are used in a different way to this. Otherwise Mozart would come back as Mozart. And that wouldn't do at all.
    Somebody who was in the SS would possibly now work in the Social Security, either helping people who now need help, or if they have not lost the attitude they had in the past life, making certain pensioners don't get the money they are entitled too. That of course would be there choice.

    It's the human brain that is the problem in most cases. Researches have shown that many of the nasty things are connected with the brain of the person. So the soul has to be cleansed of these things before moving on to the next life.
    But there is one thing that is always carried forward. LOVE.

    When I experienced death, through regression of past lives, the moment my soul left the body I felt very much like waking up from a dream. I immediately realized that I am not the person who died, but something more, somebody "real" from this new point of view. My interest for the ended life was fading away rapidly.

    I haven't experienced the anthropomorphic afterlife model described by Newton, and with some variations by other authors.

    The fact that in most cases the regressed subject describes impressions in line with the regression facilitator's beliefs, is explainable by the fact that during the sessions all the participants to the session get under some level of trance, and their subconscious get connected and influenced, unwittingly.

    Regarding "love" ... I think there is a misunderstanding about it as a goal for the reincarnating humans.

    We come here to learn to master our thoughts and emotions, because not having them under control in the non-physical creates nightmares, the way we experience now in our dreams. To master fear, which is the worst emotion and the originator of other negative emotions, we have to learn to substitute it with a benign, positive emotion. "Love" can be such an emotion, but it doesn't have to be the one we choose.

    If we "love" all the others but get scared, or angered, or other such negative emotions, we didn't learn what we're supposed to, and our afterlives we'll get nightmarish at some point. Maybe that's the point when we have to go back into physical to cool down, and do it all over again.

    In my experience, past life skills seep through a little bit through natural talent. One still must learn to master a specific skill, but it may come quicker or not depending on how much you have honed that skill in the past.

    I was once considered to be one of the best warriors in the world, a master of hand-to-hand combat. That does not mean I could currently defeat anyone I chose because I have not trained in this lifetime. Although, I was surprisingly good when the neighborhood kids "played swords", despite being the youngest and weakest.

    I have also been able to use past life connection to sort of "rent" a skill, if you will. For example, in a state of mind that was more regressed than in the present, I tried a language learning app. Because I was tapping into a lifetime where I was spoke the language, I completed weeks of the program in a single night, picking up new vocabulary as though it were just a dusty memory. However, the next day I could barely remember any of it.

    Interesting, did any of it stick long after despite fading the next day?

    I am thinking that like with personality some measure of the past skills and abilities does make it through like everything else like issues ect.

    Nothing stayed around for long. There seemed to be little difference between re-learning the material I had already covered and moving on to later chapters. It seemed marginally more difficult to learn modern grammar and vocabulary. Which makes sense, because words like "phone number" would mean nothing to someone who lived 800 years ago, which is likely the last time I spoke that language.

    I think skills and interests do carry over, but they still have to be nurtured. There is likely no way to regress so completely that you bring back skills into the present. Each body and brain has to be trained separately.

    I agree especially about the difficulties with modern language and the same for the rest, I guess that what may pass for natural talent sometimes is just another hint of there being something hidden away in the past.

    It is possible for skills to carry over in my experience, or at least for similar skill sets to be applied to ones thinking.

    I put my abilities down to being 'smart' until I remembered reincarnation. Then the penny dropped. I'd just had plenty of experience at it.

    Did you experience the same as when we are between two lives?




    How did you get into this “state of mind” - through past-life meditation?

    I would be interested if there is a kind of meditation technique which would systematically support bringing back old skills into the present life.


    I think a had been a psychologist in many previous lives (on other planets) and I want my knowledge back that I had at that time without reading a lot of psychology-books and learning.

    Better do not mention other planets, the forum owners do not wish this to be discussed.

    Already tried to "interview" you PL selves, have an (not so) imaginary dialog with them? Not saying this will help, but it might.

    I cannot explain it. Sometimes, the past sort of seeps into the present. I start to think and act a little differently, my posture and stride are different. I am still me, but under the influence of my past life personas, if that makes sense. Most of the time, it is completely accidental, other times I have noticed triggers I can use on purpose, like listening to certain music or going to a certain place. I do not know if this is something everyone can do, or if it is just a personal quirk.

    Skip a fair amount of it at first for obvious reasons but the rest of it should be of great interest to this topic.

    There are some things that I may have picked up quickly due to knowing them in a PL. It’s very hit and miss though, so I can’t be certain I it’s because I knew it in a past life or if it’s just something that will come easily to me in all lives or just this one coincidentally, ect. I think the person who suggested this may apply more to physical skills than knowledge might be onto something.

    I liked to ski in my most recent PL, and I’ve always wanted to try it in this one. I’ve never had the chance, but am very good at both roller skating and ice skating. Those, I picked up VERY quickly, like my first day. While I imagine there’s a difference to skiing, I do imagine the sensation of skating might feel similar, which could be why I got used to it so fast.

    I was also a doctor in my most recent two last lives, so you’d think chemistry would come really naturally to me, but no. I struggled really hard on lecture/classroom days. Nothing ever clicked to me until lab days, where I did better than the rest of my group as opposed to worse.

    I think we do use our abilities from former lives. Not the book knowledge, but the essence of our former experiences. In this life, I've done so many jobs without being qualified and I performed just like the other colleagues and sometimes even better. Every time when I step into a new thing I am insecure, but soon as I understand the essence of the job, I translate it into our today circumstances and I start working. I am not a genius, so I guess I use former knowledge. I also thought sometimes that I could tap into our shared Consciousness. I don't know. The only sad thing is that I forget quickly. As soon as I do not longer need certain knowledge, I forget it all.

    Even genius is just experience in my opinion fireflydancing.
