Although your physical body is temporal, your soul is eternal. You were created eons ago, and you’ve had many experiences through many lifetimes. We’ve found that as people recall their previous lifetimes, they’re simultaneously able to heal negative patterns and health conditions that are rooted in the past. At a soul level, you retain all of the information, lessons, and memories that you’ve gathered. In many ways, you grow stronger and wiser with each lifetime. You also tend to incarnate with the same individuals, both because you love them and also to heal misunderstandings.
Dr. Brian Weiss and I created our new Past Life Oracle Cards to help you recall information about your previous lifetimes. As clinicians who have studied and practiced past-life therapy, we’re convinced that you can heal physically and emotionally by accessing these memories. Our cards are a tool to help you remember key information from prior lifetimes. They also validate what you already suspect are past-life themes. Once you access these memories, your unconscious mind then supplies you with more details about your soul’s journey through time.
Using the cards to explore your past lives will evoke strong responses, which represent centuries of trapped energies that need to be released. It’s best to allow yourself to truly feel these emotions (rather than numbing yourself to them). However, don’t let yourself wallow in or become obsessed with your past. Take frequent breaks and reality checks by focusing on your current life and taking care of your pressing responsibilities. This creates a balance as you slowly heal repressed emotions from prior lifetimes.
You’ll realize how people in your current life played roles in prior lives. The reason you’re back together could be due to a strong soul connection or an eternal love, or because there’s unfinished business—usually in the form of unforgiveness. We call this a karmic imbalance. You come back together—with the purpose of releasing old anger—as a form of detox. The karma is balanced when you can feel compassion for the other person’s soul journey.
Using Oracle Cards
Oracle cards are an ancient divination system based upon magnetic resonance, which says that any question you have will magnetically attract the card that most accurately provides your answer. These cards use Pythagorean systems of numerology, which hold that every color, letter and number vibrates in mathematically precise ways. Our Past Life Oracle Cards were designed to help you understand and heal negative patterns by tracing their origins to past lives. Once you realize where a fear-based pattern began, you can work on releasing it. This process can heal every area of your life—health, relationships, work, finances, self-esteem, and more.
Because these cards are specific to certain lifetimes, you may need to meditate upon the reading to get the deeper meaning. The cards will “speak” to you (if you are patient while listening to them) through your thoughts, feelings, signs, and dreams. Trust the first impression you receive when looking at the cards. These messages are always loving and accurate.
Remember that the whole point of past-life work is to heal ourselves of old fears or anger, so that we can enjoy this lifetime. We learn from the past, and then we let it go. Always remember that you have freewill choices about life. You can also improve the outcome of any situation through prayer, visualization, and positive affirmations. Heaven can help alter your future for the better if you ask for, and be open to, Divine assistance.
