Talking Major Fear Related to Past Life/Lives

Hi all!

I have always had a huge fear of experiencing anaphylaxis, specifically the suffocation aspect. I've never had a severe allergic reaction, not in this lifetime at least. The most I've personally experienced is seasonal allergies, which relates to a minor and manageable allergic reaction to fruits and vegetables. I am also more severely allergic to peanuts and tree nuts.

I recently adjusted my diet to eating healthier, trying to cut gluten out of my diet because I read it was beneficial for empaths. This was followed by my parents surprising me with news of an upcoming allergy appointment.

First time I had an allergy test done, which was years ago, I fainted. Second time was last year and I essentially had a panic attack the entire time.
One would think I'd be able to handle another, seeing as I have experienced it without any real problem. But this new appointment triggered the thought that new allergies could form and I would have to fear and avoid even more. As an empath, I already struggle with being in my body and trusting it. The fear of anaphylaxis is definitely connected to this. The appointment was canceled a dew days later (not by my request) and that's when I knew this was a lesson, and one that I was ready to learn.

For weeks now I have had moments when I've spent between one second to an hour worrying "what if this is when it happens?"

A couple days in to my obsessing, I was talking to myself trying to gain some understanding because I could sense that deep down I know I'm safe, but I just could not stop worrying. Suddenly the thought "I don't want to die like that again" popped in my head and was gone so fast that I almost missed it.

So I know this is related to a past life, and I've been getting better about eating without worrying, but once in a while the fear comes back. I'm at the point where I think help from others is a great option. If anyone has any words of wisdom or advice on how to top dwelling on this I would be extremely grateful. I see great significance in past lives, and would love to understand how they integrate into our current physical existence.

Thanks for reading!

How interesting.

Where did you read that about gluten and empaths? Would you share the link?

My dog is 14 and I've had him since he was 9 weeks old. I'm the only owner he's ever had and he has ZERO reason to be terrified of vacuum cleaners, fireworks, or thunder, but he's freaked out by them all. Sometimes he gets so worked up, I have to give him a doggy Valium. I can't help but wonder if he experienced war in some way in a past life. His fear boggles the mind.

I was just saying today that he doesn't understand that he has nothing to fear by any of those things. And then I immediately wondered how often that same line could be applied to my fears and worries. And I wondered if anyone/thing said "The girl just doesn't realize she has nothing to fear."

Snort.

If someone asked me what scares me, I'd have to honestly answer - probably E V E R Y T H I N G but that bush, my sunglasses, and doilies. So sad.

I'm not allowed to post URL's on the forum yet, but if you Google "empaths and gluten" the first few links were the ones I looked at.

KTM19,

I find it telling where you said you were worrying speaking with yourself about it (the physical sensation of suffocating) and the thought- I don't want to die like that again came to you.


I think in certain times when we have strong feelings of fear or aversion to something- or even thoughts accompanied by strong feelings like that, that we may indeed be remembering past life emotions/ memories that are brought to the surface here and now in this life-time.

I have had similar experiences, but come to me more as feelings, not only the feeling of fear- I've also felt remorse related to a past life.

When such instances occur- I feel there is something that needs to be healed.

Instances of this in this lifetime to me are an indication that healing work should be done on self- and what better time then when when we become aware of it.

Like you had when you had the thought- I do not want to die from that again- came into your awareness.

You could try regression with past lives- perhaps to get clearer of details and circumstances of the life this occurred, but do realize such memories coming to the fore can be very painful.

I believe that is why we have them to begin with, to heal.

Blessings along your journey.

May you find the healing you are deserving of.

As for the worrying, perhaps trying different learned relaxation techniques? Like breathing, music for relaxing, and other such techniques to help cope?

Just a suggestion.

I have to say that your experience is very interesting. I have a terrible fear of drowning, for no real reason. I am an excellent swimmer, and love being in the water. However, I am so scared of being trapped in a sinking ship or car that I am positive I died that way before. I have recurring dreams of going into a body of water in a car and they are amazingly real. I feel like your fear could be based in a past life experience.
Meditation and breathing exercises help a lot with controlling panic attacks. I hope you find an answer soon.

I'm not sure if its related to a past life but I feel really scared of going too deep in the ocean. I never learned how to swim. I'm also very scared of big fish.

I have a big fear of driving. I'm 32, no license. I don't know if it's a past life thing or a future thing, but it gets pretty overwhelming! :/
