Reincarnation and Past Lives
Explore and Learn from Your Own Past Lives Using These Techniques and Spiritual Exercises
Many of our dreams relate to past lives. Once we come to that realization, we can begin to access the experiences that lie hidden within our memory banks. And, yes, it is possible to bring hard-won lessons from past lives into the present for a better understanding of our situation in life today.
Love and mercy are the stuff of life. A study of dreams has the power to open your heart to the essence of your real self. Who are you? These spiritual exercises can help you reach out to learn the answer and find the secret to self-mastery.
Read the spiritual exercises that follow (see the jump links » at right for a list of exercises). Then choose for practice the one with most appeal to you.
Later, do the same with each of the other exercises.
Technique: Make a List of Your Favorite Things
To awaken past-life dreams, make a list of people and things you like or dislike. Also note if you feel a special attraction to some country, locale, or time period in history. There is a reason for such interest.
Now pay attention to your dreams.
Exercise: A Spiritual Exercise to Awaken Your Past Lives
If you want a look at your past lives, the word to sing for a few minutes at bedtime is Mana (say MAH-nah). Then go to sleep as usual. This word attunes you with the Causal Plane, the region of past-life memories. Remembering past lives takes practice. But others do it, and so can you.
Extra: See The Worlds of God for a chart of the various planes (PDF, requires Adobe Reader).
Exercise: Decompressing the File Technique
Past-life information from the dream state may appear like a computer file compressed for document storage. The ECK Masters can impart knowledge to you by a highly compact form of communication, much like telepathy.
Now imagine turning on a computer. Slide a floppy or another disk with the Master's inner discourse on it into the disk drive. Decompress the file. The computer program will do its best to honor the intent of the discourse as it converts the telepathic-like communication into everyday speech. However, no computer program can render an exact translation of an inner communication.
So catch the spirit of the message.
By all means, don't worry if your dreams don't play out as described here. The mere practice of this spiritual exercise has power. It releases the latent, invisible force that will convey a necessary past-life recall to you in some way or other.
This method is, at heart, a means to trigger past-life recall.
