Rules #30a: "Towing the Iceberg": Rules of Past Life Resonance
"Row Well and Live"
Do you often sense that you are weighted down inside? Like you are
dragging invisible baggage that you can feel but cannot see?
If you have had any or all of these feelings come up regularly in your life, then it is likely that the "weight you feel inside" are "past life resonances".
* If your body is the "prison" (Your Body: Prison Without Walls) which compels to you work off your karma.
So What Are Past Life Resonances... and Why Should You Care About Them?Past life resonances are simply "inherited patterns of being modified by experience". These patterns of being are the sum total of all the learning that you have inherited from past lives. This is how keep all that you have learned in past lives without being overwhelmed by all the details of your previous incarnations.
These "patterns of being" are meant to be "modified by experience" as you live each lifetime. Most resonances are good: they are the sources of your strengths, skills, and talents. However, those resonances which keep you from being all you can be today - physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually - need to be healed.
So Why Do Resonances Cause Problems... and Why Must You Heal Them?
"Problems" from the past - like most problems - just get worse until
they are resolved. Even worse, if these problems come from the past they
are remarkably resistant to present day treatments. This is because our
past live resonances operate much like icebergs. Six-sevenths of the mass
of an iceberg is below the sea surface and so it is always more massive and
immovable than it appears.
So What Are the Sources of Past Life Resonances… and Do You Have Them?
Beside each Past Life Resonance below is the internal dialog that goes with it. If you have heard any of these "lines of dialog" either playing in your head or running through your speaking, then you ARE being effected by such resonances. You will continue to be effected by them until you heal the problems in your past lives or in past events from your present life that caused them to become part of your being.
Here are the Most Common Forms of Past Life Resonances:
#1: ATTACHMENT: "I have to DO…", "I have to BE…", "I have to HAVE…"
The hardest thing you will ever have to accept about your
life in the universe is that you have chosen to be here. Almost always,
the choice was made because there is something that you "HAVE TO" do, be,
#2: VANITY: "Let me tell you…", "I am SO fantastic…", "I am SO horrible…"
Each of us has within us the capability to be a "Mother Theresa" type Saint and an "Adolf Hitler" type of mass murderer. The truth is that each has a place in God's universe and each has a role to play. At one time, we have or will have all played all the roles. We come to learn that we are neither "so fantastic" or "so horrible" but that we are all servants of God. Past life resonances of both the "fantastic narcissist" and the "horrible masochist" will cry out for healing until they are resolved.
#3: INTOLERANCE: "We are the BEST…", "THEY are the WORST"
Of all past life resonances, those involving rigid,
fanatical intolerance - "good-or-evil" beliefs, "we-or-they" attitudes,
"black-or-white" thinking - are among the hardest to heal. What it takes
are lifetimes of experiencing things from all viewpoints to come to the
ultimate truth of existence that "we have looked into the face
of the enemy and find that we are they…"
#4: UNFORGIVENESS: "I will NEVER forgive…", "I will ALWAYS remember…"
Unforgiveness is the companion of intolerance: for those
we cannot tolerate, we can never forgive because our past life resonances
ensure that at a cellular level we always remember. Since our bodies were
designed to carry our learnings forward from life to life, "never" and
"always" can be quite a long time karmically speaking.
#5: HATE: "I HATE you FOREVER…", "I hope you SUFFER and DIE…"
If left unhealed for too long, intolerance and unforgiveness
manifest as the most extreme form of past life resonance: hate. Hate is
THE most difficult resonance of all to heal. For hate is like fire: it
can fuel itself indefinitely on everything it finds around it. Since we
are infinite beings, vowing to hate forever is a command to the universe
that - literally - can be carried out for millenia.
#6: PRIDE: "Let me tell you…", "It's ALL about ME…", " It's ALL about YOU…"
Closely related to vanity is pride. Our individual
journey as Soul through the universe (karma) is "all about me" and learning
about oneself is necessary to become fully Self Realized. At the same time,
our journey is "all about others" as we develop our continuous connection to
the God Source (our Higher Self)
and the collective consciousness so we can
become fully God Realized.
#7: GLUTTONY: "I GOTTA get me some of that...", "I can NEVER get enough..."
There are many things to love on this Earth: food, sex,
money, power, nature, challenge, adventure, discovery. And the list goes
on and on seemingly forever. That which you love down here - that which
you cannot get enough of... are past life resonances that pull on you until
you satisfy them.
#8: ENVY: "Why do THEY have... and NOT me?", "Why are THEY like... and NOT me?"
Envy is always caused by misplaced attention. You envy in others what you use to have in a past life or what you have yet to create in a future life. Since all time is now, resonances manifesting as envy in the present life are created when you catch glimpses of your past or future self in another's life experience. Envy is the failure to realize that, along our journey of Soul in the universe, we have been and will be all things. Like hate, envy is a poison that sickens us until it is purged. It gets purged when we connect with the totality of ourselves and know that all is within us now.
#9: ANGER: "THEY make me SO angry that I...", "I get SO angry because it is so..."
Anger is the fuel that powers all the "negative emotions"
that we have, especially hate and envy. It often seems to us that anger
comes from outside ourselves ("they make me angry") but the truth is
that anger ALWAYS comes from inside.
#10: GREED: "For ME to get, I must TAKE from you...", "There is NEVER enough..."
Greed is the fuel that powers gluttony. Although we
live in an abundant universe, it has taken us quite a long time to create
societies on the Earth that realize the promise of abundance. So the
fear of "lack" ("there will never be enough") is deeply ingrained in
our collective consciousness and it invariably manifests as greed ("so
I have to take all for me while I can because I will lack someday").
The companion of greed is "cheapness" ("since I cannot make more, I
must spend less").
#11: SLOTH: "I am SO tired and so I CAN'T…", "I'll do it LATER, someday, never…"
From a karmic standpoint, laziness is the central problem
of human existence. The truth is most people are not the actors in their
life's drama but the reactors to the karmic circumstances in their lives which require
action to be taken.
#12: LUST: "I WANT this…", "I WANT that…", "GIMME, GIMME, GIMME!"
Lust is the fuel that powers attachment and completes
the circle of "negative" human desires. As long as you "want" something,
you are being driven by past life resonances to experience something else
that you have not already explored in past lives. All your wants become
satisfied when you have finally experienced and are complete with all the
Earth has to offer.
