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.
When you come into a new life, you enter into an agreement to forget about
past ones. Although "forgotten", your past lives lie just near enough to
the surface of your conscious awareness for you to access them. These
traces of the past in the present - "resonances" - hold the key to unlocking
information about your past.
So What Are the Most Common Sources of Past Life
Historical resonances give powerful clues to your past life journey.
* Historical Figure: If you are attracted to a certain historical
figure, this is a sign that you might have lived in a time or place where
you would have known or known about this person. Rarely would you have
been that individual. The one person who was, in fact, that
usually has a hard time believing it. They often imagine that they were
connected with that figure in a romantic manner (as a friend or a lover).
For them, this explains their attraction... at first. Eventually enough
evidence emerges convincing them of the truth.
* Historical Event: If you are attracted to a certain historical
event, it may be that you have, in fact, participated in that
event. For example, in Barbara Lane's book, "Echoes from the Battlefield:
First Person Accounts of Civil War Past Lives", she was curious to see if
a group of Civil War reenactors, when regressed, would have any connection
to a past life during the American Civil War. Lane was astonished to find
ALL of the reenactors "experienced past life memories of the [Civil War]"
(p. 222) (as she did not expect it!).
* Historical Period: If you are attracted to a certain historical
period, this is a sign that you might have, in fact, lived and died during
that time period. The greater your fascination with the past time period,
the more likely it is that you lived then... and that you have a past life
effecting you today... that is crying out for healing.
* Historical Pilgrimage: If you have been compelled to visit a certain
place, it is likely that you are returning to a place where you had a
traumatic past life. For example, each year many people make the journey to
Sierra Leone in Africa to see the remains of slave holding pens. Many who
visit have violent reactions (uncontrollable anger or tears) to the pens...
where they were imprisoned in past lives. These people (unconsciously)
return to the scene of past life crimes... so they can release the pain of
the past forever.
Illness resonances form the basis of your present life health problems.

life causes of present life disorders, click here.
* Asthma: Present day asthma is often the result of having been
suffocated in past lives. In past lives, present life asthma sufferers
were gassed to death, crushed underneath a slab, hung by the neck, snuffed
by a pillow, and somehow strangled out of oxygen. Asthma is the body's
way of remembering this past life suffocation now.
* Allergies: Present day allergies are often the result of having
been poisoned in past lives. In past lives, present life allergy sufferers
were poisoned by eating food, drinking beverages, or inhaling toxins.
Allergies to what "looks and feels" like that past life poison. Allergies
are the body's way of avoiding past life poison now.
* Birth Marks/Defects: Present day birth marks
and defects are the body picking up where it left off in past lives.
Birth defects now, like missing limbs, stem from the loss of limbs in past
lives. Birth marks now are the scars from where the body was shot, stabbed,
strangled, burned, or tortured in past lives.
* Chronic Pain: Present day chronic pain, especially when modern
medicine cannot discern its cause, is often the result of past life trauma.
Wherever it hurts now is often the result of where the body was killed or
wounded in past lives. When the chronic pain cannot be linked to a present
life, it is likely to come from past lives.
* Chronic Fatigue: Present day chronic fatigue illnesses, like
Fibromyalgia, especially when modern medicine cannot discern its cause, is
often the result of past life trauma. When the body has experienced massive
trauma in past lives, it is so overburdened with past life resonances that
it overloads the present with fatigue.
Name resonances explain why you are being called by a past life name.
* Name Lives On: When people have had close connections to one another
in past lives, they get very used to certain names... and that familiarity
carries over... right into the present life.
* Different Name, Same Person: One client always calls me "Linda" and
has a hard time addressing me as "Ellen" now. As she explains, "I know you
are Ellen but you feel like Linda to me... so that is why I am always calling
you that..." I have gotten used to it: it is just one of the occupational
hazards of being a past life counselor. Sometimes the past bleeds into the
present and getting called by a "wrong" past life name is bound to happen
from time to time.
* Same Name, Different People: The surest sign of a past life name
bleeding through is when several, different people call you by the same
"wrong" name now (especially when they do not know one another). Another
client named "Ron" is often referred to by both family and friends as
"Kevin" now. No one in "Ron's" family circle or among his friends is named
Kevin. Yet that "wrong name" persists and "Ron" answers to both names as if
they applied equally to him.
* Same Name, Same Sex: Interestingly enough, the "wrong" past life
name 99 times out of 100 is associated with the same gender. In other words,
Ellen gets called Linda (female names) and Ron gets called Kevin (male names)
but rarely would an Ellen be called a John. Ironically, John is the name
I have had most often in past lives (mostly male in past lives). So, all
other things being equal, I should have been called that by others... but
it has never happened.
* Same Name Feels Right: You will know that "wrong name" is a past
life name when it "feels" right to you now. In other words, being called
"Linda" feels as right to me as being called "Ellen" - each of those names
seem as if they belong to me. When it comes to any sort of past life
awareness (like reacting to a "wrong name"), your best guide to your personal
truth is what you know/think/feel to be true inside your own heart. "If
it feels right, it is right!"
Object Resonances are when special possessions are clues to your past
* Buried Anchors: When some common household object catches your
attention because it is the symbol for the past life you most need to know
about... to heal your life today. Like an anchor buried in the sand, it
will eventually surface in your life and demand your attention.
* Art/Music: When you become attracted to the art or music of a
particular historical period, more often than not, it was because you had
a past life at that time. Your attraction to that art or music is like a
string around your finger reminding you - subconsciously - of either a past
life you deeply loved or a past life crying out for deep healing.
* Collections: When you collect certain items, these reveal clues
about your past lives. Those who collect weapons (knives, guns, swords)
usually had military past lives. Those who collect sacred items
(rosaries, icons) usually had past lives in religious orders. Those who
collect coins usually had past lives as government officials.
* Decor: When you decorate your home in a period style (like Early
American or Victorian), you most likely lived during that period.
When you surround yourself with objects from certain cultures (like
Chinese, African, French, etc), you most likely lived in that place
at another time. Historical objects always have a past life tale to tell.
* Dress: When you dress in clothes from a certain historical period
(even if it is just privately), your desire to do so stems from a past
life. When you dress in clothes from a culture that is not the one you
presently live in, this is also most likely driven by past lives.
* Tools: When you will only work with professional level tools
(cooking, needles, construction, writing, etc), it is most likely because
you have a talent from past lives that is demanding it!
People Resonances are the best place to look for clues to your past lives.
* "Love at First Sight!" is a documented historical phenomenon.
Caesar and Cleopatra acted as man and wife from almost the first moment
they met. Once Czar Nicholas met Lady Alexandra, he - in an uncharacteristic
act of stubbornness - refused to consider marrying anyone else. After Queen
Victoria met Albert, she was determined to marry him. The same with King
Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, and the
list goes on.
* Instant Like: Those who you met and instantly like have been most
likely been with you in many past lives. The pleasant and harmonious
dealings with these comrades in past lives leave warm thoughts and feelings
in mind and heart. Both of you have come together again to pick up where
you left off and to bring even more love and happiness into both your
lives... good karma in action.
* Instant Dislike: Those who you met and instantly dislike have been
most likely been with you in many past lives. The unpleasant and bitter
dealings with these enemies in past lives leave cold thoughts and feelings
in mind and heart. Both of you have come together again to heal the
situation with love and forgiveness or risk bad karma.
* Instant Partners: Those who you feel comfortable enough to partner
with have most often been your professional/business partner in past lives.
Those who are compatible in money making ventures tend to come together
to bring their wealth and success to higher levels. Many times people
spend more karmic time with business partners than family members due
to these shared career goals.
* Instant Alliances: Whether it is in families, among friends, or
inside businesses, those who have been allies (or enemies) in past lives
tend to continue such alliances (or animosities) in the present.
Place resonances provide the easiest clues to previous lives.
* Places to Visit: Those places that you would like to visit are
most often places you have lived in one or more past lives. If you think
those places are the same for everyone, just ask five of your friends
where they would like to visit. Chances are these places will not be the
same for everyone... and each person will have a different reason for why
their place is the best one to visit (ex. it feels like home).
* Places to Live: Those places that you would like to live (other
than where you are living) are most often place you have lived in one or
more past lives. Where you live now is most often a "new" place for you
(as most people like to experience different places to live). However,
there are some who tend to "stick" to a few favorite places (which is
allowed as long as the individual can meet karmic goals).
* Places at Home: If you have no favorite places to visit or live,
then look around your home. Many people decorate their houses in the
style or with objects from periods in history they lived through. The
past is often present in those places which call to us most strongly.
* Places in Dreams: Often those places you dream about were those
where you lived in past lives. Sometimes the names of places (as they are
now) where you lived previously will surface in your dreams. Dreams
are often the first place for past lives to emerge.
Poison resonances can complicate life and make healing difficult.
* Food Phobias: As you grow up (and before your past life karma fully
attaches to you), you have to eat to live. During your childhood (until
age 12), your mind develops a database of "safe foods" (what you can eat
that will never cause you trouble). By age 13, that list of "generally
recognized as safe" will be closed to changes if you have poison resonances
from past lives to be worked through. Either you will continue to only eat
the same "safe" foods -or- you will need to heal the issues keeping you from
eating (and living) more fully.
* Wellness Resistance: Those who were poisoned in past lives develop a
present life reluctance to ingest vitamins, minerals, and other supplements
designed for wellness. Even if those with poison resonances are convinced in
their minds that taking supplements makes good sense, their body will block
them from doing so if those supplements "look and feel" like poison that killed
them in past lives.
* Medicine Resistance: Those who were poisoned in past lives develop a
present life reluctance to take injections or ingest medicines. Those with
poison resonances will often have to be sedated before they can be medicated.
Again, even if their mind agrees with the medicine, the body will resist.
Often this problem will expand to prevent the individual from accepting
healing in any form.
Religion resonances from past lives are among the strongest ones.
* Base Religion: After genetics, religion is one of the main reasons -
karmically - that we choose to reincarnate into a particular family. That
is why most people adopt the religion of their parents and choose not to
change it later on in their life. They want to explore their religion fully
by choosing to follow it for a lifetime. Only after following a religion
for a lifetime can a person truly learn and understand it.
* Religious Exploration: More often people stick with their religion
while they explore others. For example, there are many Christians who
incorporate some of the traditions of Jewish Kabbalah into their lifestyle.
There are also "Jews for Jesus" who do not accept Jesus as their Messiah
but admire Christian teachings. Less often people study another religion
and later end up converting to it because it appeals more to their current
personality than their birth religion.
* Conversion by Marriage: Most often, when people do change their
religion, it is because they have agreed to adopt the "different religion"
of their spouse. Their conversion by marriage gives them the rich opportunity
to explore more than one religion and (hopefully) to expand their consciousness
through this additional exploration.
* Conversion by Attraction: Often when people radically change their
religion (leaving their birth faith), it is usually past lives at work.
For example, someone who converts from Roman Catholicism to Protestantism
is still a Christian and has only made a small change in their religion.
While another who converts from Catholicism to Buddhism has made a radical
change in their religion. The more radical the change in religion, the
more likely the individual has changed to a much loved religion from past lives.
Starvation resonances from past lives create artificial restrictions.
* Lack of Supply: You are suffering from "lack of supply" when you
are fearful that your next meal is never coming. Even with cabinets and
refrigerators stuffed with food, do you still buy more... and go out for
restaurant meals as well? If so, past life starvation is effecting you.
* Survivor Mentality: In this or other lives, the individual was
actually a survivor... of war torn, disaster stricken, or impoverished areas
and personally experienced prolonged periods of starvation. This is especially
true when they connected with traumatic past lives where they or those they
loved had starved to death.
* Family History: The person's family members often told stories...
of how they starved or how others starved. Their parents never left enough
food in the house... or they constantly hoarded it. Their parents/spouse
deprived them of food... often through starvation diets... as a means of
controlling or punishing them. Their parents/ spouse were irresponsible...
and their neglect resulted in shortages.
* Personal History: The person's classmates stole food from them...
and they often went hungry at school. Their friends told them stories... of
how they starved or how others starved... and this scared them.
Terror (Fear) Resonances
Terror resonances from past lives create needless fears and restrictions.
For the complete list of past
life causes of present life fears, click here.
* Fear and Paranoia: Are you always waiting for things to go wrong?
Are you convinced that others are out to get you? Are you certain that,
no matter what you do, you will be screwed over in the end? If the answers
to all these questions are "yes", then you are most likely effected by a
"fear and paranoia" past life terror resonance.
* Fear of Attack: When you are alone, are you always looking around
you and scanning the area for others who are looking to attack you? Are
you always fearing that these unsafe others are about to attack you? Are
you really fearful that others will attack you from behind? If so, this
is a "fear of attack" resonance from past lives.
* Fear of Accident: When you get in a car, a bus, a train, or a plane,
do you always feel like you are taking your life in your hands? When others
drive, does it make you nervous? Are you certain an accident is just around
the corner waiting to injure, maim, or kill you? If so, this is a "fear of
accident" resonance from past lives.
* Fear of Theft: Every time you leave your home, are you certain that
thieves are just ready to pounce? When you leave on vacation, are you certain
you will arrive home to an empty house? Do you go to bed fearing a burglar
will break into your home while you are sleeping? If so, this is a "fear of
theft" resonance from past lives.
* Fear of the Dark: When the sun goes down, do you fear the dark? Do
you avoid going out at night because you fear what can happen at night? Do
you avoid getting out of bed at night because you fear the dark? When driving
at night, does your stress level go up? If so, this is a "fear of the dark"
resonance from past lives.
Touch resonances from the past complicate life and make intimacy difficult.
* Avoiding Tight Clothes: Touch resonances are often the most noticeable
when it comes to clothes. Sufferers find it hard to wear ties or scarves
around their neck... when they died by hanging in past lives. They find
it hard to wear watches or bracelets on their wrists... when they died from
being dragged at the wrists by racing horses or chariots. They find it hard
to wear belts... when they died from being tortured at the torso. All these
types of traumatic deaths in past lives create present life touch resonances
to avoid tight fitting clothes.
* Avoiding Physical Touches: Even the thought or the suggestion of
someone touching a sufferer in the "forbidden place" is hard for them to
bear. Being touched in the present... where the sufferer died in the past...
can be absolutely excruciating. The sufferer will often have a violent
reaction to these touches in sensitive past life areas. They will move
away as quickly as if they were stung by a bee.
* Avoiding Physical Pressure: Touch resonances related to physical
pressure are also very sensitive. Sufferers will automatically avoid
situations where they will be pressed physically. They will avoid crowds
(the pressure of bodies in close proximity) on subways, trains, airplanes,
and at malls. They will avoid small seats (needing to fly first class and
not coach). They will avoid hugging, touching, and physical closeness of
every kind. Any kind of physical pressure will set off this pressure past
life resonance in those suffering from it.
Work resonances from the past have formed your present life career.
* "What Do You Do?" When people meet, one of the first things they
talk about is what they do for a living. If they were aware of their past
lives, the next question would be, "How long have you been doing it?" The
vast majority would answer "for most of history!" Most often, individuals
find what they like to do as work… and then stick with it and perfect it
as they move along their cycle of reincarnation.
* Natural Talent: The surest sign of past life resonance at work is
the emergence of natural talents. What you are naturally good at doing now…
you have probably done for thousands of years. Those who are happiest in
their careers are content because they have found their true vocation and
are bringing their skills to new/greater levels.
* Natural Collaborations: Another sign is attracting harmonious work
partners. If you enjoy working with certain individuals, if you feel very
comfortable with them on a personal basis, if you are certain that you can
absolutely rely on their skills and talents now, it is likely that you all
are recreating great collaborations from past live(s).
* Natural Mission: A final sign is that those who are working at
their chosen vocation feel a sense of mission. They feel as if they are
doing the most important work in the world. They could not imagine doing
anything else. They experience a constant fascination with new developments
in their chosen field. Before they leave, they entrust their mission to
"safe hands" of a new generation. After they leave, they often decide to
reincarnate and do more in their new life.
