I have read your article and it is intetesting. I do believe in rebirth but never taught about the past life connectios. I do have gone through a lot of incidents as well but i taught it was telepathy kind of things. I have something to ask/clarify from you. I am a divorcee since age 24 and i have been in a lot relationships physically and emotionally. I always get cheated on the name of love. I dont date or flirt when i am in a relationship. I am a very honest and sincere person when comes to a relationship but the men i dated all are opposite. Almost for past 6 years i stopped to involve in any relationship. Two years ago my house mate co-worker wanted to get to know me. He saw my picture in her fb account and interested and i refused because he is a married guy. He is married, his wife and kid in another country. He also involved in sex buddies. In May 2016 i happen to see him once at a cafe and i fall for him. Whenever my house mate mention his name i feel i am smiling by myself and i have taken his no from her in June. Since day till this moment we chat a lot in watsapp. We have gone out for lunch and dinner on group of friends. I have confessed my love to him but he didn’t not accept and only wish me to be his best friend but he treat me like more than a good friend. He said he doesn’t have any sexually feeling towards me. He knows everything what i like and he remember every single thing about me. He cares for me a lot and hw still entertain me even i fight with him. He said i don’t have a future with him. I have told him i have no interest in marriage and just want to be happy with him. In the past 2 years he had a bad experience, he had fall in a love with a women and she has passed away due to illness. He told me that he fall for her because she was going to die. I have try to date another man but it is like cutting my heart. I feel i can live without him with his memories but not with someone else. Is this can be my past live connection which i need to complete. This man is my dream man except for his marital status. Please guide. Thank you.

Especially if you feel it in your Heart; then you know it to be true.

The quest for you right now, however, is to stay as firmly grounded and rooted in your body as you can manage. Your story sounds completely plausible to me, but the truth of it is something only you can judge. The most important element is for you to take the lesson of it very seriously; that even if grief overwhelms us, we have a reason and a responsibility to live out the lives we have planned and to carry on to the best of our abilities. Or, as your story demonstrates, we will have to return again, and try again to meet all the challenges and lessons we had planned for ourselves. And sometimes, it’s very difficult to set up all those opportunities again! So be sure that you stay alert and aware, and “in your body,” mentally, physically, and spiritually. Live this life to the fullest, meeting all that you have set up to meet with good cheer and a happy attitude.

Stay strong, dear, and keep your heart as clear and beautiful as you can! And then, when you two meet again, it will be all the better to share. And you will meet, if your story is true, when the time and place is right and you are both ready–if not in the present lifetime, then in some other place and time! Much love to you both, Lianne

I have dreams of a man apparently from my past life, I first saw him in my dreams and now I just see him all the time. What I have got out of it is he has told me that we were engaged and he was in an accident and died. Then I committed suicide. He’s on the otherside and I was sent back to this world to basicly relive my life without committing suicide again. I’m not sure if this is true. but I’am a sensitive, I hear,see things and people that aren’t there since I was a child.But I see him and I doing all kinds of things together before he died.I see him in great detail and when I do I start to cry. I feel in my Heart this is true. But is this actually possible? Thank You for any information.

Comment on What the Hell Did John Lennon See in Yoko Ono? by sertaneja http://zazenlife.com/2013/01/22/what-the-hell-did-john-lennon-see-in-yoko-ono/#comment-208944 Fri, 15 Jul 2016 03:36:35 +0000 http://zazenlife.com/?p=16530#comment-208944 Oh well, another Paul hater, or maybe only a troll. Erika, Erika, Erika…you managed something hard. You wrote a long comment that we can’t save anything! It’s rubbish from the start to the end! Congratulation, it is difficult. Paul didn’t say John’s death was a drag. He said “What a drag”..Of course you know that. And it was indeed a drag. Or do you think it was good? As for Yoko…it is not a case of put the blame on her. She did it. I don’t ´put anything on her. She did it herselt. John said so, Paul said so,( at that time) George said so. And didn’t change his mind. I am sure they know better than you. I believe on them. She was not alone. But she not only supported the split and also she started the campaign against Paul. She is powerful, as there are people who really believe on her. But not even John believed on her anymore! I am sorry I made this comment. Not worthwhile to talk to haters. Not worthwhile to talk to trolls either, as they don’t want to know the truth. They want to cause trouble only. I won’t return.

I just found this perfect blog post from my favorite blogger, Seth Godin, marketing guru, which he titled “Consider Reconsidering.” It’s very short. He writes:

Is there any other form of freedom that comes at such a low cost?

The freedom to change a habit, to change your mind, to change your expectations.

It takes guts and humility to change your mind. Fortunately, you have the freedom and the courage to do so.

You’ll find this on his blog at http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2016/07/we-are-all-home-schooled.html

You have already answered this for yourself, haven’t you?

“I now worry that I will go through this life wondering if I made the wrong choice, or that I altered the destiny that was set out for us.” Which means that you already believe you made the wrong choice. But the second half of your sentence perhaps gives us a clue why on earth you chose to remain with the boyfriend. Is it because you believe some external power sets out a destiny for individual people? Let’s talk for a brief moment about why we reincarnate (and I see that this is a new concept for you).

We come back, again and again, to this world because we are developing our Being, our Mind, our Soul to serve as a more beautifully, harmoniously functioning part of Infinite Intelligence (what you might call God, but this Intelligence is more impersonal than many religious ideas have depicted). This Infinite Intelligence IS you; you ARE a part of it. It is pure, oscillating, intelligent energy–and it runs as smoothly as we all hope our software does. It is our Life Force. But we, individually, must personalize this Life Force as we evolve. You are building your own kind of blueprint software to become a better, more useful part of the Whole; that is your Extended Biofield–to use the newest terminology. Everything you do, say, experience, think, and feel remains a permanent part of that personal blueprint/biofield, forming the underlying structure of all your future lifetimes. AND– this is all in your hands! It is your choice. It is up to you, what you become, what you learn, and from whom. Also, how fast you grow.

Well, I’ve just tried to condense my 40 years of study of this topic into one tiny paragraph, so I hope it works to convey to you that no one else can set up a destiny for you. No truly Wise or Divine Being would dream of interfering like that in your personal soulic development and education!! It is you, dear, who must choose and live and deal with the results of your choices. That is how you learn and grow. It is not engraved for you somewhere to read and follow. You make it happen as you go along. You are in charge! There are no mistakes, either. We learn from all of it.

BUT–there are energy principles involved, because we are part of that Infinite Energy. We are Energy Beings. As energetic particles of Infinite Intelligence, if you will, we are drawn back together like magnetized iron filings. We have second and third and fourth chances. We have many partners to live with and learn from in the course of our many lifetimes. But we also begin to build very important “polarity” relationships with a few, whom we meet again and again. You have eloquently described to us what it feels like to meet one of those. I don’t like the exclusive-sounding term “soul mate,” because I believe that is a different type of thing. What you have described instead is one of those treasured partnerships that it takes lifetimes of shared experiences to create. That is the man you have turned away.

Why?

Is it because you are afraid that, if you don’t pretend to like your current boyfriend, when you clearly are bonded to this other man, then …. ???? Here’s where I am lost. Then what?? Then the current boyfriend won’t like you any more? Then someone will think you are not a nice person? But would a nice person pretend to be “in love” with the boyfriend, when her heart and mind and soul are longing for the other man? Who does that? (Sorry — I know that a LOT of people do that, and it is just sad but true.) And when you all three die and go over to the other side at the end of your life, and see with clear vision —- how will you feel then? How will the boyfriend feel to learn that, by your actions, you are living a lie? Will he appreciate that? I don’t think so.

I don’t care how fragile the boyfriend might seem to you (if “he’ll break if I leave him” is your excuse). I don’t care if he threatens suicide (I’ve had two ex’s do that to me, right before they met someone else and had children with them! Meaning they recovered very quickly from my absence, and for both of them, happily so). So even if he throws a temporary tantrum, it is probably only fear of loneliness speaking and he will get over it.

What hold does that boyfriend have over you? Guilt? Because you chose him before you knew better? Or was it a guilt from past lives that has caused you to make this weird and (forgive me) somewhat dishonest choice?

I want you to ask all these questions of yourself and many more that I have failed to uncover for you. Go deep, dear. This is vitally important. Because the scenario you have described to me sounds like a present- and future-life nightmare. I am speaking clearly and perhaps bluntly to you because I sense that you are NOT trapped in an arranged marriage situation, like so many of my readers are, and that you DO have choice in your present lifetime! You haven’t told us why you have guilt toward your current boyfriend, but that’s a terrible basis for a romantic relationship, even if the other man did not exist at all!

So look behind the scenes and consider that the real past-life problem you are facing lies, not with the other man whom you’ve known for so, so many lives, but with the boyfriend you’ve chosen to remain connected to, glued to, in fact. Resolve that mystery, and set yourself free to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. I think the fact that you’ve shown up here among all the arranged marriage victims could be your past-life clue. And just because it happened to you in previous lives does NOT mean that you have to follow the old pattern and repeat, repeat, repeat it, life after life. The point is to change and grow.

Please, come back and tell us what happens! We are here to support your highest benefit and greatest good in your present and future lifetimes! Your cage door is standing open. Don’t miss that very important fact. Whatever happens with the other man in the future, which might be nothing at all, think of him as a Cosmic Friend who has returned to show you, by contrast, that you are currently in a very unhappy position. But you are completely free to do something to change that.

Love and good wishes to you! You have the POWER!
Lianne

I would like to share an experience with you and maybe get some guidance. I started dating my boyfriend three and a half years ago. About three months into our relationship, I was introduced to one of his old, good friends. Prior to meeting this friend, I felt an attraction to him from seeing him in photos posted online. At the time I chalked this up to a physical attraction and thought nothing of it. However, when we met in person, we both experienced an immediate and mutual connection and attraction like nothing either of us had felt before. I found out later that when he looked into my eyes that first time, he felt as if he had known me his entire life, almost as if I had looked familiar to him. It was automatically strange because I could feel his attraction to me and usually I am oblivious to things like that. We were both in our new relationships and he was living in a city 4 hours away from me so neither of us thought much of it at the time. Over the next 2 years, I would see him occasionally with the longest stretches being weekends at the cabin as a group. Even back then, we would catch each other’s eyes from across the room and look at each other with some sort of meaningfulness. I always had butterflies and excitement when I knew I’d be seeing him or received the odd message from him but continued to ignore that feeling and the vibes I was getting from him.

Then, one even last May, something shifted and we were no longer able to ignore this connection we have. His relationship had begun to deteriorate and I could sense his unhappiness almost immediately without talking to him. That night we were chatting quietly together when I squeezed his hand as a sign of support. He later told me that he remembers that moment vividly and that time almost stood still when I took his hand. He said he felt electricity running through his hand and up his arm. It was so brief that I don’t even remember this happening.

Shortly after this encounter his relationship ended and mine began to have problems of its own. Meanwhile, we became incredibly close. He just knew exactly how I wanted to be treated and what to do to make me happy without me saying anything. We complimented each other perfectly. We could talk for hours on end every day and not tire of each other or run out of things to say. We soon found that we had nearly everything in common, it began to give new meaning to the saying being cut from the same mold. Of course, we began to fall in love. But it didn’t really feel like falling in love, it felt like we had these feelings lying underneath the surface all along and were finally recognizing them. So many things in your article have hit so close to home and sound so familiar to my situation. It was him who first proposed the idea of past lives to me as an explanation for the intense connection we were experiencing. However, our lives were so intertwined with our friends and my boyfriend that I couldn’t see how we were going to be able to ever be together.

But, his presence was so familiar and comforting to me, like nothing I can explain. We eventually let his sister know how we were feeling about one another and she told us that from the first time she saw us interact together, she could see we shared a special connection. One that we didn’t even realize we had yet. We could sense each other’s moods, even from hundreds of kilometers away and he seemed to know me better than many people in my life, even my family.

Eventually my relationship reached the point where I asked my boyfriend to move out of the apartment we shared. I began to think that finally my soulmate and I would be able to be together and I stopped caring what everyone else would think because they didn’t understand the connection that we share. However, my love for my boyfriend and guilt began to make me second guess what I was doing. My boyfriend is a good man and I felt that when we started to have our problems, this connection and relationship I was having with another kept me from giving him the chance he deserved to fix our relationship. I eventually got back together with my boyfriend and broke off communication with my soulmate and now, not only are we not together, but he is out of my life completely. It hurts an incredible amount and I think about him almost all day, every day. I worry that he will stop believing in our connection, I wonder if he still loves me. Feeling this way and wanting him back in my life in some form (not necessarily romantic) makes me feel like I am betraying my boyfriend. I know my boyfriend loves me so much and I love him with all of my heart, but deep down I know it’s not the same kind of love or connection that I have with the other man. I want my soulmate to be happy and I now worry that I will go through this life wondering if I made the wrong choice or that I altered the destiny that was set out for us. More than anything, I just want him back in my life in any form, to feel that connection again, even if we can never be together. Ever since we stopped communicating, it feels as if I have almost lost a part of myself. I fear that I have left too much up to the philosophy of “if it’s meant to be it will be”.
