Too often, those of us who are grieving the loss of a loved one can only see endings. We see finality to the time we can share, termination of our relationship with those passing, and feel a sense of permanent loss. Counselors recommend remembering the best parts of our experiences with those we have lost and keeping their memories alive. Friends tell us to focus on the ways our lives have been improved by knowing the person we have lost. Despite this, the separation can still be very painful.
Past life regression is a method by which we meditate to visit previous lives. This practice can reveal many past and parallel lives, offering enlightenment about how our soul has developed across lifetimes.
One important aspect of past life regression is the discovery that those souls closest to us (often referred to as a soul family or soul group) reincarnate with us. Your child in this life may have been a parent or spouse in a previous life. Relationships, identities, even genders may change from one life to the next.
How can knowing this help the grieving process? There are some powerful lessons to be learned and truths from which to draw strength and comfort. The most important of these is that death in this life is not the end of our relationship with our loved ones, just as our birth was not the beginning. Our souls are eternally connected. Many who have experienced past life regression cite a reduced fear of their own death, drawing comfort from their understanding that relationships live on lifetime after lifetime.
- focus on the fact that your loved one’s soul is eternal
- draw comfort knowing separation from a loved one is only ever temporary
- gain peaceful perspective knowing your loved one is moving on with joy and comfort
- take the time to process your grief, not suppress it
- recognize that grief leads to a need for healing
- see death as the end of your relationship with your loved ones
- ignore your grief or try to shut it out
- feel confused if you don’t understand why a loved one passes
- believe that you will never see them again – you will
- limit your perspective on your life to just this one life with your loved one
Keep an open-mind. Past life regression helps open our horizons to multiple phases of our existence. With that understanding, we can look at both our mortality and that of those closest to us in an entirely new light. By understanding each role you and your loved ones play during a regression, you gain perspective on the eternal soul.
Understanding the eternal nature of our souls can ease the loss of losing a loved one in this life. If you can see your relationships in a non-linear, eternal way, saying goodbye to someone becomes “I will see you again soon.” This has been profound for many who have dealt with the death of a loved one or are struggling with their own serious health challenges. Past life regression eliminates the finality of death and redefines it as a transition to another chapter in the story of your eternal soul.
Many who have focused on the passing of a loved one have reported through their regression that the transition is ultimately peaceful, and even joyful, for the soul as it moves on to another life. This interpretation has provided tremendous comfort for those watching a loved one die who may have suffered in this life.
Remember that grief is ultimately for those left behind. Those who pass do so peacefully and the lessons they have left with us are the special qualities we should hold onto, not the sadness left in their being gone. Grieve in the moment but celebrate in the long view. No one ever really leaves our side as long as we love each other.
Healing from grief comes when we celebrate the best parts of our relationship with those who have passed. With past life regression, we can see many facets of that relationship across many lifetimes, providing even more memory to treasure with those who we are missing.
Past life regression offers an expanded viewpoint of our reality. Finding comfort in the knowledge that we will see each other again creates a new definition for death – one grounded in transition rather than finality.
Grief is as natural as breathing. We miss those we love, no matter what we have learned about our eternal souls. Explore and learn from your grief. Reflecting upon those we miss often creates deeper understanding of who we are and what we value in life. Ask yourself, what is behind the inability to release the natural grief? Do you hold anger, guilt and shame about events that transpired? Do you regret not telling them how much you love them when you had the opportunity to? Are you afraid of being alone? Do you feel betrayed? Focus on healing these emotions and you will be able to release the grief.
Here is one very simple but very effective way to approach this healing: Ask that the two of you meet in your dreams and, as your souls heal those wounds in you, that healing process will allow for your love to be fully expressed.
Even gaining perspective of our past lives does not remove the randomness of how our lives play out and what happens in them. There will always be sudden, unexpected loss, balanced with long, fruitful lifetimes. Consider the long view of the journey of our souls to find some comfort when there is loss in this lifetime we cannot comprehend. Remember, for the person who passed on, the time of their passing was carefully planned and chosen. And more importantly, as all cases of near death experiences confirm for us, even after the spirit leaves the body, the person is given the option to return to life or to continue in the afterlife. Your loved one chose to continue in the afterlife because their learning on Earth was complete. Rejoice that they are in a good place and that their soul has returned to its original wholeness, basking every moment in the unconditional love of the Source.
Case after case of people who have practiced past life regression have revealed confirmation that they share life after life with those they love – in different roles or places in our lives. Death does not have to be good-bye. Love is what always reconnects us and brings us together.
This is a part of the wisdom gained from past life regression. Ultimately, our souls are on a journey of growth, learning and healing from one life to the next. Sometimes we know the pain of a past life experience in our current life but with it comes the chance to heal and grow. We can take comfort from the knowledge that our loved ones stay with us on this amazing journey.
Past life regression offers a deeper perspective on the immortality of our souls. Not only do our souls live from life to life but we keep our loved ones near us in each progressive lifetime. We may not always recognize them for the roles they played in other lives and our relationships may change but the connection between our souls remains. Understanding this challenges our concept of death and can provide higher perspective on the passing of loved ones. No death is a final goodbye and no passing is painful for those who make the transition.
