Past Lives and Soul Purpose

Hypnotic regression, conducted by qualified professionals, has become an increasingly popular tool for discovering one’s life purpose.  I especially appreciate the accounts presented by Dr. Michael Newton in his books:  Journey of Souls, Destiny of Souls, and Life Between Lives, of clients who enter the Theta state of consciousness and remember not only specific past lives, but also what they do between incarnations.

In virtually all cases, these “subjects” reveal a clear understanding of why they incarnated; what karma, lessons, and relationships they have chosen to work through; and what steps they hope to accomplish where fulfilling their ultimate spiritual goal is concerned.  However, they all state that we pass through a “veil of forgetfulness” when we are born and do not carry with us these memories and intentions at a conscious level.  This is why I believe in, and emphasize in Karma: How To View It, Use It, and Lose It, the importance of learning to perform a personal “life anatomy.” Once we learn how to view ourselves and our life circumstances objectively–as a “participant-observer”–everything from physical, mental, and psychological attributes to gender, race, ethnicity, family, and culture it becomes possible to discern (at least obviously) what it is we have undertaken to work through and accomplish this time around.  While we might decide that we do want to experience hypnotic regression or obtain a professional life reading at some point, this seems, to me, a good, common-sense place to begin.  Try it out!

    The title of my April/May column, "Perspectives," in Pet Tails Magazine is: "The Cat Lady." It tells the story of a woman in Pittsburgh who devoted her retirement years to rescuing the most hopeless, hapless cats from a local shelter and the interesting, elegant lifestyle she and seven of these lucky kitties lived before her recent death.
