We carry fragments of our past lives into our current lives.i can remember a good few of my past lives. one that angers me is what was written about the last one ,it is full of inaccuracies and lies.
and that anger drives me to seek justice today.i will let it be known what happened but not until the time is right and it is not yet.
I use what happened to seek justice others who have fragments of their past lives maybe suffered something traumatic,and having past life regression can help with that.


Namaste

I came across great youtube interviews of 'spiritually awakening' everyday people
that have learned or had amazing STEs -spiritually transforming events- ha, there is even
a section on the NDE site for STE stories on www.nderf.org - the NDE Research Foundation.
Now, many are authors and teachers - not so 'everyday' people to me, ha.

It's called ''Buddha at the Gas Pump'' - about 500 interviews now lasting 1-2 hrs.

For the orig poster Rob Schwartz answers many questions from the op.
I looked him up on Amazon and he has a couple very good books.
His was so interesting right to the last few minutes of his 2 hr interview, the longest I've seen.
Highly recommended to all here

Hi Native Spirit,

Looking forward to and very intrigued about hearing of "what happened" , "when the time is right".

Can you disclose where is "what was written about the last one" that angers you?.

Also , do you think and believe that there is a link between intuition and past lives as I do?.

Moreover, do you think that "another suffering something traumatic" is one of the reasons why some do not have a recollection of these past lives' memories?.

Namaste.

I've been wondering about this for a long time: How can/does a person remember details of a previous life?

The answer, I believe (just my current opinion), is to be found somewhere in the nature of 'memory' itself.

If memories are only stored in the physical brain, then they are probably volatile, like computer RAM which loses its data when power is removed (as in physical death).

Therefore, there must be some form of memory which is part of the spirit or soul, which is carried forwards to the next incarnation.

The physical (local / volatile / short-term) memory is probably more detailed, because it has to store information for the current incarnation to be able to live, work, and experience the current physical life.

The deeper, long-term Soul Memory, is probably geared towards higher things such as the individuals identity, talents, interests and spiritual development.

Any specific information retained from a previous incarnation is probably because the events are emotionally imprinted on the spirit/soul and have actually become part of the pattern or identity of the spirit/soul/self.

Alternatively, as some have theorised, if memory isn't located in the brain at all, but is located somewhere in the higher realms, and the brain works like a radio receiver, then ANY brain with similar 'tuning' (likes / interests / character / personality) may be able to pick up these 'memories'.

Possibly, like with most things, the truth may be a combination of any or all (or none of) these things.

I think this is how it works; either ALL of us are allowed to remember our past lives, or there simply is no such thing as past lives and reincarnation. They say life is all about karma and learning from multiple Earthly lives. Well, if you keep forgetting everything and having to start all over again everytime you're reborn, you don't really make any progress at all, do you? This is why the whole concept of past lives and reincarnation is just silly.

I have been told that it's advanced souls that remember their past lives.

In agreement with others here , it would be quite confusing to live one life with the memory of other lives .

Excellent question and thoughts, though they don't make reincarnation by itself silly as a belief, but perhaps the common beliefs it is accompanied by .
What it does show though is that (1) progress isn't linear, and (2) progress along incarnations is an assumption one has to take on pure faith.

Perhaps we all do reincarnate but there's actually no 'point' to it, no progress, no plan, no nothing. It just goes on for its own sake. This is quite possible too, but I bet most people never imagined this option! The human mind is so desperate to apply teleology to everything that it ignores that much in reality is randomness. Some nice people get incurable disease at a young age, and awful people can live care-free lives for decades. With ''karma'' you can always say ''because of past life''. It's a bit like saying ''because of magic!''

I also think that the lack of past life memories in the vast majority of people is interesting..

Or there is the possibility that we are on Earth to experience things and learn, and knowing all our past lives would be counterproductive. A bit like sitting an exam where we are given all the answers - what would be the point?

For example, we might have difficulties with someone in the family. We could learn many things from this difficult relationship. But if we knew all our connections from past lives and who had done what to whom, then the opportunities for learning are limited.

You think that the concept of past lives, karma and reincarnation is silly. I think it is the only concept which makes any sense of our lives.

Peace
