Trust is the most important thing to have when it comes to remembering a past life. If you want to remember a past life, you will need to trust the information that you receive.
Trust the information since it all comes from within you.
I compare it to the same as trusting your own intuition. Messages from your intuition (your higher self, your spirit guide, sixth sense, your conscience) come in six main ways.
A person uses their intuition or acquires psychic knowledge by:
Clairvoyance (seeing) ~ one sees objects or visions, or obtains information, regardless the distance
Claircognizance (knowing) ~ one knows something … having that gut feeling
Clairaudience (hearing/listening) ~ one hears information
Clairsentience (feeling/touching) ~ one feels what happens, physical or emotional feelings
Clairalience or clairescence (smelling) ~ one smells something significant to trigger an association
Clairgustance (tasting) ~ one tastes a substance without putting anything in their mouth
These same faculties that you use when you trust your own intuition are crucial when remembering a past life. It is very important to trust the information that comes from within yourself.
I regressed a friend one time. She said, “I don’t think I remembered anything, but I saw a horse and buggy.” (Yes, I still give her a hard time about it.)
For me, I have experienced all of the above during a past life regression. I often feel things first, and then see what happens around me. I received just a knowing of a lot of information too—like my name and the date.
While in the in between life state of Heaven, I heard and saw the most. It was very easy to talk with my spirit guide here. It is simply awesome; it always brings a smile to my face when I think of my spirit guide. We are so loved.
I have smelled things a few times—dust kicked up by horses, smoke and lamp oil. I only remember tasting something once—olives from a farm where I worked.
Sometimes, a past life regression is akin to a very vivid, lucid dream.
How do you hear your intuition? That will be your clue on how you may experience a past life.
