Reincarnation stories fascinate me. Actually, the topic of past lives in general fascinates me. In September of 2013, one of my previous lives was validated during a reading. It was a mind blowing event that left me in awe for days and started me on a path to healing.
The room was buzzing with Divine energy. We were all there for a common goal: to become certified Advanced Akashic Record readers.
So, what does all of this have to do with reincarnation stories? A lot, actually.
Many people don’t realize how past lives can influence what is going on in their lives right now. Many of our loves and fears come from what we’ve experienced in other lifetimes.
And sometimes, those joys and fears are carried over into this lifetime. Because of this, they become an important aspect of Akashic Record readings – where we look at the big picture from the perspective of your soul. And your soul has lived many physical lives!
I got to hear some fantastic reincarnation stories that weekend, but I have to say – my experience was the most amazing one of all…
Reincarnation Stories Part I: My Vision
Linda spoke about ancestral patterns. She told us to think about someone with whom we have a difficult relationship.
We were about to look into our own Akashic Record to see if the difficulty is rooted in a past lifetime.
I thought about my sister-in-law, Marie, who has caused me much stress and many tears with her unkind words and actions.
The worst part though was not Marie’s behavior… it was my own. I never stood up for myself – not once, not ever. I kept the hurt hidden inside and cried silently at night. It always bothered me that I allowed her treat me with such disrespect, and I could never figure out why I allowed this to go on.
This was my opportunity to find out why I was so afraid to speak up.
Opening My Akashic Record
As a group, we recited the sacred prayer and entered the Akashic field.
Suddenly, I saw a vivid image of a past life where I was a young child defending another child.
He was being physically abused by a woman wearing a long dress: It was my sister-in-law, Marie! Of course, she didn’t look the way she looks in this lifetime, but I recognized her energy immediately.
As I watched the scene unfold, I knew that I was going to be beaten next for defending the other child. I was going to be beaten for speaking up and yelling for her to stop.
I admit, reincarnation stories can seem kind of wild. But to me, this made so much sense. A part of me still felt like that helpless child when she was around.
But now, the really phenomenal part…
Part II: The Amazing Validation
Moments after that exercise, we were paired up with partners to give readings to each other. We were going to explore past lives even deeper. I was really excited to dig in and hear more reincarnation stories.
As you read what happened next, keep in mind that I had never met the woman I was paired up with.
And there was only a few moments between the two exercises, therefore, no time to chat with anyone.
When she sat down beside me, I told her I wanted to look at the dynamic between my sister-in-law and me.
I did not tell her anything about my vision.
My partner said the sacred prayer and accessed my Akashic Record. And we were off!
She began describing a vision she was seeing, and tears started streaming down her cheeks.
What happened next blew my mind:
She described the EXACT SAME vision that I had seen!
With her eyes shut, and tears streaming down her cheeks, my partner described me as a young child defending another child and then, being severely beaten for it. She described Marie exactly as I saw her, right down to the same dress!
My jaw dropped in disbelief and for a moment, I lost my breath.
I listened intently as she elaborated on the vision.
She said that in that lifetime, Marie ran an orphanage and the children were not treated well.
There was a lot of abuse and apparently, I learned to keep my mouth shut around her to keep myself safe.
She explained that there was nothing else that I could do, because I was a defenseless child. The conditions of the orphanage were so horrific that she continued to cry during the entire reading.
When she was finished, she wiped her tears away and gave me a big hug.
How amazing that we BOTH saw the SAME thing!
Part III: The Healing Begins
Reincarnation stories may seem silly to some people.
But to others, like me, they are enlightening and healing.
Marie is no longer in my life. I never did tell her how much her behavior hurt me, or how many tears she caused.
I just walked away quietly. And that bothered me and made me feel like a coward. It felt like there was no closure.
But at the Akashic retreat – in that room filled with beautiful, divine women – it all clicked:
I am no longer that defenseless child.
In fact, I am defending myself. The way I chose to do that is by shutting the door to Marie and all of her negativity and judgments.
And I now know that I can love myself despite all of this.
It was incredibly healing for me and it made so much sense. I was finally able to make peace with the situation and can finally, genuinely, send love and light her way.
And that is the power of reincarnation stories, and the reason why I love the Akashic Records. If you’re interested in learning more about your past lives, I invite you to talk to a psychic now. (affiliate)
