Some past lives are easier to remember than others.
Some past lives, I am sure, we would like to re-forget. I know I have one. His story is Chapter 8 in my soon to be published book, Life Is Just Another Class—One Soul’s Journey Through Past Life Regression. I was a difficult man, never learning my life lesson during that incarnation. It took me five years to come to terms with this past life. Rest assured, I paid my karmic debt as a female, her story is in Chapter 12.
It is never easy to come to terms with the things you have done or the people you were in a past life. The strong emotions that come through help release the pent up (over one thousands years in some cases) feelings that are bursting through when someone remembers a particularly difficult past life.
My friend, James Vitale, recognized that as his previous incarnation, he could have done better. Here is James story on he came to terms with having been Arthur Edward Waite. Very cool James!!!
