When Lifetimes Collide

Sep 25, 2016 | JVP's Blog

Have you ever travelled to a place for the first time and been surprised that everything felt so familiar? Have you been so comfortable with a new acquaintance that it was as if you’d been friends forever? Has a random image, sound or smell triggered strong feelings for no apparent reason? All of these “unexplainable occurrences” are considered by many to be evidence of past lives!

Activation points – a signal from your soul.

Over thirty years spent speaking to the Spirit world, I’ve come to understand that we are all souls who have touched down to have earthly experiences and learn important lessons. Many of us have returned countless times, and we hold deep within ourselves memories of past lives. These memories can be triggered when we come into contact with something – a person, place or event – that was significant in a past life. I call these encounters “activation points,” and they are your soul’s way of telling you that you’ve been down this road before.

A friend once told me a story about her infant son. She was watching television with her baby, Sean, on her lap. The baby was cooing and content until a commercial appeared featuring a pirate with a parrot on his shoulder. The baby suddenly screamed in terror – reacting in a way that his mother had never seen before. She turned off the television and calmed him down, but after that she noticed that he had the same frightened reaction to pirate costumes, stories, and the pirate attraction at Disneyland. It was clear to both of us that the pirate encounters were activation points, indicating that Sean’s soul had experienced something terrifying at the hands of pirates in a past life. Interestingly, as Sean grew older he was determined to learn to swim and eventually became a lifeguard. His fear of pirates faded, and my sense is that in a previous lifetime he had experienced a death at sea at the hands of pirates. By becoming a strong swimmer, and helping others through his work as a lifeguard he was able to break through the fear that had plagued his soul.

Soul Groups and Soul Mates

It’s wonderful to think that you might travel through different lives with the same group of souls! These collections of souls, or soul families, often show up in different roles – best friends might be married in the next life, or a grandson might become a grandfather. Beloved pets might even show up again as humans. When you are part of a soul group, you never lose your loved ones because you are always being reunited either on the other side or back here in physical bodies. Not everyone you encounter in your life is part of your soul group – but you will recognize these special people when you meet them if you are tuned into your inner voice.

Breaking the Chain

There are textures that repeat across lifetimes, and lessons that need to be learned for the pattern to be broken. Some souls struggle with anger, addiction, or other hardships over and over until they finally reach a point where they can find the strength and support they need to break the cycle.
