Past Lives and Soul Connections
Author: Ask Cristina
If you’ve ever have an “out of body” experience in meditation or a dream, or if you’ve had a near death experience, then you know that we are not a limited beings confined to this human form. We are an awareness, a consciousness that reunites with the ONENESS that is our Source or God. When we cross over, we go to our original form. We become that absolute divine spirit that encompasses everything all at once.
We are multi-level, multi-dimensional beings. One aspect of us remains associated with the subtle realms of light, we are available to other souls in a spiritual sense. The other aspect of us is physical, an earthly body. As a spiritual being in human form we explore the lessons and adventures of this lifetime. We grow over a multitude of lifetimes whether on this planet or another. The aim is to evolve, just as the universe is evolving. With each lifetime we cultivate more, grow in talents, virtues and especially grow in love, compassion, generosity, un-attachments, courage, confidence and cheerful creativity.
In my advisor practice, I’m often asked, “why do I feel such a strong connection to this person?” The answer is really very simple, you’ve known each other before, most likely in past lives. And your souls have recognized each other in this lifetime, or felt a “pull” towards each other. This doesn’t necessarily mean you are supposed to live happily ever after together in this lifetime, but that you have to ‘experience’ something together for the benefit of moving forward in your spiritual journey.
In an interview on the Oprah network, Dr. Brian Weiss, author of Miracles Happen, says, “It is very common to travel through different lives with the same group of souls—I call these groupings, soul mates or soul companions, or soul families. We seem to learn our spiritual lessons and accumulate or resolve our karma with our soul groups. Relationships may change from life to life, but the souls are the same. For example, your grandmother might reincarnate as your grandson. In this sense we never lose our loved ones, because we are always being reunited either on the other side or back here in physical bodies.”
I believe when we experience each other, whether in love relationships, work relationships or family relationships that we are learning a bit more each time. Let’s face it, our lives last a second in time. If the earth is 4 billion years old, and we only live to maybe 80, that is a second in time, we would need several lives to evolve to a higher level where we reach a Nirvana, or God Source and we become higher evolved beings.
If you are feeling a relationship challenge, ask yourself what you need to learn from this this experience. You’ll discover it’s all about growing to a higher level of self, or becoming wiser. Sometimes it’s a matter of learning self-respect and self-love. That person you met could be the one who shows you never to accept “crumbs” of affection from anyone again. Or he could be the love of your life. Either way you met for a reason.
