I have spent the last 24 hours consumed in information I can find on past lives, especially with those we spend multiple lives with. Long story short, my partner and I have been together for 6 years, and have known each other for approximately 8. A few weeks ago we suddenly split. Just before this, we were at an art opening and we each had our tarot read. Mine was quite accurate, though it was pointing toward more career/life fulfillment work than relationship. At least this was how he read it. Fast forward to this week. My [now] ex partner attended another event where this same tarot reader was also attending. The tarot reader immediately sees my partner and says "How are you? You two broke up..." My partner, taken aback that he knew this, asked how. He was told it was in both of our readings the previous month, though it was not his place to tell us this information as it was ours to journey through. He then says "do not feel like you have wasted any time together, you have been together in many past lives.." I have always had an inkling of past lives and experiences, though have never spent too much time delving into the subject. There is something about this that has struck me and I would love to hear thoughts on why a relationship, though quite compatible, is presented with obstacles that seem difficult to overcome, especially when the idea of multiple lives together is at play.
