Working on past lives

 

I did a session with Barry yesterday, and it went – for the first time – back to images from a previous life.

It’s a reminder that as long as something comes up and feels unresolved, I can work with it.

It doesn’t matter where I tell myself it comes from, whether my thoughts say it’s a story about this life, a dream, images of past lives, scenarios about my future life, someone else’s life, mythology, religion, an origin story, a fairy tale, a book or movie. Whatever feels unresolved about it is the same, and it reflects something that’s here now – in my life, in my world.

So in all of these cases, if it feels unresolved to me I can explore it in any number of different ways – journeying, opening to the emotions, ho’oponopono, tonglen, The Work, Big Mind process, prayer, bearing witness, and so on.

A few notes on rebirth:

Rebirth is an interesting topic in many different ways. For instance, using science and research, can we find any data pointing in that direction?

Also, if an image comes up for me that could be a past life, does it really matter? If it comes up for me now, and there is some charge or meaning around it, that’s really sufficient for me to explore it further.

I also see that it may be easier to approach things in my life if I imagine it in another life. Something in me that I cannot so easily find words or images for, may be easier to put into words and images through imagining past lives, and imagining it into a particular past life.

Finally, even if there is something like rebirth, it’s clear that (a) the body dies and is recycled (it’s of course recycled during life too), (b) if something is reborn it may be found at a soul level, and (c) what I am is not what’s reborn. It’s all a story and a set of images, identified with or not, and it’s all happening within and as what “I” am.

– epigenetics, easier to imagine in another life, something without words/images may be easier to put into words/images through imagining past lives

 

– working on own life, dreams, past lives, what i imagine other thinks etc. – all reflect what’s here

It all reflects what’s here now, and it’s all here now in a very real sense.

The only thing that differentiates a story about this life and a story about something else (dream, others, future, mythology) is another story saying where it’s from. Whatever feels unresolved about it is the same.

If it feels unresolved to me I can still explore it in different ways: Ho’oponopono, tonglen, The Work, Big Mind process, prayer, bearing witness, etc.

In all of these cases, it reflects something here now, and it is – in a very real sense – here now. It reflects dynamics, wounds, thoughts, beliefs that are here now, and the images I have about it are my images, part of my world of images.

So in all of these cases, if it feels unresolved to me I can explore it in different ways: Ho’oponopono, tonglen, The Work, Big Mind process, prayer, bearing witness, etc.
