You’ve broadened my horizons! I never thought that we’re being pushed together because maybe someone’s showing me a sign! Maybe we really aren’t compatible! Also, I’m so sorry about what your Uncle did. It really is inexcusable. I can’t believe that anyone could do such a thing to another human being! And I’ll definitely look into those techniques cause I really have to wonder. Im always so jumpy. Anyways, thanks soo much and I’ll definitely keep you posted!

Comment on 12 Ways to Identify Past Life Friends, Lovers, & Enemies by Lianne Downey Mon, 28 Nov 2016 23:52:32 +0000 Dear “Ships”: I’m having deja vu with your comment. It seems I’ve heard this story before! In any case, please be careful not to force your own emotional attachments from past lives onto your present-life daughter and this boy she has met. Just use this experience to understand yourself better. It demonstrates how powerfully the past can affect our feelings and actions in the present lifetime.

Why? Because we are made up of atoms that are pure energy, guided by the Blueprint of Energy-Intelligence that we have created, life after life after lifetime. That Blueprint, or Extended Biofield, is unique in each of us. This energetic body/Self contains information stored in higher dimensions, including emotions and memories, of everything we have experienced in all of our previous lives. When cycles align, various bits of that information pour into our Being here and now, in the present life, and feel as if the thoughts and emotions are from RIGHT NOW. But that Blueprint or Energy Body that supports our existence in this present-life body also connects us to Infinite Intelligence (God, Source, whatever you term the Divine Intelligence). From this Connection, we are constantly fueled with new energy, and can tap into this new inflow to reshape, change, and improve ourselves, or to be inspired with new ideas. This happens in the milliseconds, as we decide how to respond to the incoming information from both past lives, and present life exterior circumstances. We are the intersection of this three-pronged input!

Use your own experience, intelligence, and this knowledge we’re discussing to make better decisions right now. Tap into your higher intelligent inflow! Do not overstep the appropriateness for this situation in the present life! Control yourself. Remember that you are remembering, and temper your emotional attachments so that you do not interfere in your daughter’s life.

Thank you for writing! I know you’ll do the right thing.
🙂 Lianne

Comment on 12 Ways to Identify Past Life Friends, Lovers, & Enemies by Lianne Downey Mon, 28 Nov 2016 23:35:15 +0000 Hi Alana! First and most important: You are NOT crazy!!
You are a sensitive, intuitive person and all of your insights and flashbacks and feelings are important for you to take seriously. This is your mind working as it should, with your antenna extended out maybe a little further than others. 🙂 We are fortunate to have developed, over many lifetimes, such skills and to have kept the lines clear, so to speak, so that our mental faculties are in good working order. “Crazy” would be people who do not have this kind of sensitivity to the broader spectrum of life. Never let any one tell you otherwise. But, you might need to exercise discretion when you talk to people about what you know and see. Pick and choose whom to tell, and when, and how. This is advice for you for the rest of your life, okay? In future years, as the world shifts and changes and more people accept more concepts about the nature of our lives and minds, then you will be able to speak more freely, I suspect. Over the course of my own lifetime, I have seen such openings widen, thankfully. Let’s hope that continues!

As for your mother’s boyfriend’s son, just believe what you already know. But if you are going to make any decisions about him, please base those on the present-life realities as much as possible. You’ve given us quite a clear picture, so you just have to trust your inner knowing about the type of relationship(s) you’ve had in the past (yes, plural, for your feelings to be so strong). It’s valuable to know only as a tool to help you improve your present life. Without knowing more about that myself, I can’t really advise you further. But question within yourself: Why is it helpful to know of this past? Is it to avoid making a mistake by trying to repeat it, when it might not be the right thing, here and now today? (This is how people make serious mistakes, such as incest or adultery, when they forget that they are NOT married in the present — you know what I mean? The waves of emotion and feelings from past lives can be so strong at times, they overwhelm our impulse control or sense of what is a good idea for now.) Is it right for you to re-establish this kind of close relationship in the present? I don’t know. Only you two will know that. But if he’s open, it might be fun to tell him of your flashbacks one day. Again, only you will know what to do, say, and when and how, if at all. The best I can do is validate that yes, you are NOT crazy and you are NOT imagining things! Believe in yourself! Believe in your ancient Self and all of its wisdom earned and learned through hard experience. But always take care and careful consideration when entering into intimate relationships in the present lifetime. Just because you were married/connected once, doesn’t mean you have to repeat that same kind of relationship!

I was molested/raped by an uncle when a baby, while my diapers were being changed (which he later admitted, about 5 decades later) and as a young child (which I have blacked out but which have been confirmed by others), and so was my older sister molested by the same relative. I, too, had fears and aversions that it’s taken me many years to (a) discover, and (b) work through as I grew up and formed loving relationships. So I also believe what you describe regarding the possibility of having been raped or molested. You are describing the symptoms quite well. It really doesn’t matter whether it was present or past life, except perhaps to identify the culprit and possibly protect others if this happened in the present. Past-life memories of trauma are so vivid and immediate, the body-mind responds as if it happened yesterday or today! Of course, you must be patient with yourself, and so will your future love partners need to be, but understanding and recognizing the truth of your intuition should help you with overcoming this trauma. As an older soul, over the course of many lifetimes lived in many bodies, such encounters have inevitably happened and perhaps we have been both victims and perpetrators at different times. This is how we learn. But no one deserves this kind of invasive violence! Learn to forgive and love yourself, be sure you do not regenerate any kind of guilt or shame, and then let it go! Just like the song says. As much as possible. The tales of your family about your screaming as a child are proof enough, I should think.

In addition to conventional therapies and treatments, I would like to highly recommend certain types of complementary energy psychology therapies, such as EFT (tapping) techniques to help with dispensing past traumas, to you and anyone reading this who has need. You can find a lot of information online and free instruction for this kind of self-help energy tapping therapy. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) as developed by Gary Craig is widely used in veterans’ hospitals and elsewhere to dispel symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but simplified versions can be learned and practiced on your own for free. And it really works! I also recommend Biofield Tuning, which is a new kind of highly successful sound therapy that my husband and I have been studying, but practitioners may still be hard to find in all areas.

Sorry my answer is so lengthy, but you brought up so many important points in your comment! Thank you so much for posting it! Because it helps many others who are fearful to speak up. My very best wishes to you! Let me know how things go for you —
Love, Lianne

Comment on 12 Ways to Identify Past Life Friends, Lovers, & Enemies by Alana Fri, 25 Nov 2016 16:51:09 +0000 Hi Lianne,
I’m not sure if I’m having flashbacks or seeing the future or just plain old daydreaming. I’ll just say that whatever I’m seeing looks and feels real. I’m 16. I keep seeing a little girl (mixed). She could very well be my daughter (at least in the future or past) but I just don’t know. Ever since long before I can remember I have been able to see little glimpses of the future in my dreams. It confuses me. Ive never told anyone but close family because they’re so quick it’s not even worth saying much about but it’s still strange to me. But back to the little girl, the glimpses of her have only started after I met my mother’s bf’s son. At first I thought he looked familiar to me (even though I havent met him before (I was 13 I believe and he was 15 or 16). Again, you can tell me if you think I’m crazy and I’m just a normal teen girl with a crush, but I feel like I have seriously met him before. Its like I have some sort of a past sexual connection like you explained above. I don’t think he’s even that good-looking . He’s not my type at all but there’s that feeling I get (I’m not even attracted to other guys like I was before), he’s always making strange hints and saying strange things that I don’t get (saying things about me or whatever that only I know about myself), I see glimpses of him and me and that little girl, I see glimpses of arguments and conversations. I honestly just don’t know. I really believe we’ve met in a past life. Again, I dont know if he feels the same way but he tries to be near me a lot and eat my food and do things too so I’m just confused. I would love it if you can help and/or steer me in the right direction cause Im seriously starting to believe Im crazy. Also, I believed I might’ve been raped or molested sometime either in this life and I just blacked it out of my memory cause it was too painful or in a past life. I have strange phobias and aversions to guys in general (strangely other than my moms bo’s son) touching me or hugging me and I’m terrified to do everyday tasks. My mom has said that there was never a time I haven’t cried when I was little getting my diaper changed. She said about 2-3 people (including herself) would have to hold me down and I scream and scream bloody murder even at the age of maybe 2 I believe right before I started potty training. I’m just confused.

Comment on 12 Ways to Identify Past Life Friends, Lovers, & Enemies by Ships Thu, 10 Nov 2016 12:12:01 +0000 Hi …don’t know from where to start… Around 6 yrs back when my daughter was in grd 8 she starting liking a boy in her class…when I got to know initially I was very upset…infact told her she was too young to get in into all this….few months passed n I realised they were together…. I met this boy for the first time on my daughter’s bday …I surprisingly I wasnt angry…in fact with in just few months we became very close to each other….he started calling me mumma or ma….I would feel he was my long lost son in the past life… Any how things were not too great between my daughter n that boy but my love n affection for that boy was only increasing… fact it would be so weird …that my attention should have been towards my daughter instead it would be towards him….that boy did many immoral stuff that was unpardinable but some how with time my anger would subside…..n more than that he was very persistent ….would never let us go….. I very strongly felt that we were connected…. Thru someone I found out also n got to know that he was,my father in one of my past life….though he’s not linked directly to me …. But I m very possessive about him…so is he for me n my daughter….at the same time my daughter has a lot of anger for him but i m completely thinking of him most of the time…. The same feelings are from his side too… whether we were together in the past life or not but its so beautiful n strange at the same time to feel so strongly for someone…. My love for these two kids ….my daughter n that boy is intense….. Sometimes I feel I should take a step back …. So much of attachment is not good but I m unable to hold bk ….

Comment on 12 Ways to Identify Past Life Friends, Lovers, & Enemies by Lianne Downey Wed, 09 Nov 2016 19:35:56 +0000 Dear Anon, how beautiful that you have found one another again! Thank you for sharing this story; it is a nice relief from the man-woman relationships we’ve been hearing about in these comments. Love with all your heart! And let this provide comfort to so many people who worry that, when we are separated by so-called “death” from our loved ones, we will never see them again. Of course we will! The power of LOVE is strong! Perhaps the strongest force in the Universe. And the connections we build with one another, for better or for worse, last far beyond a single lifetime. They draw us back like magnets to meet again, and again, and again. Let us all remember to put only good things into those lasting relationships, for each and every moment, thought, action, and emotion remains with us, eternally, to re-express in the future on our evolutionary pathways.

Just a word about your present connection: You may both have to adjust to the new orientation of daycare worker and child of other parents. But I hope you will remain in touch with one another as you pass through life, even if by mail or internet as she grows up. Realize that your past connections in previous lifetimes (I’m guessing more than one) could have been in any combination of gender and relationship, but that you’ve chosen your new roles to further the development of your personal wisdom and the polarity (partnership) you are growing between you, life after life. You are there to support and help one another, always.

I’m so happy for you both that you know these things!! I wish all the world could know how close they are to the people around them, and how often they have met in the past and will meet in the future. Don’t hesitate to share what you know with this little girl in the future, when you feel the right timing.
Love love love!

Comment on 12 Ways to Identify Past Life Friends, Lovers, & Enemies by Lianne Downey Wed, 09 Nov 2016 19:22:48 +0000 Dear Saira, yours is the sound of a heart longing for freedom, love, and companionship. You’ve answered your questions in the very first paragraph:

I am a lady in my mid thirties, married but not happy in my marriage but i have no idea of breaking up

Why have you suddenly discovered this passion for an unattainable, complete stranger to you? It is a “safe” way to let out some of the energy bottled up inside you, because you will not allow yourself to seek for an actual, real relationship with a man whom you can love freely and passionately. I am American, so in my culture, it would be most appropriate to divorce the man who was not my true love, so that the door and opportunity would be open to me to discover that in another. In fact, I have done this in the past and just recently celebrated 27 extremely happy years with my current husband, the man I met after leaving the unpleasant relationship! Yet I understand that we may have cultural differences, and in your world, you might believe it necessary to stay trapped in an unhappy marriage. That is hard for me to comprehend, I must warn you.

Of course, I cannot know your history but I would guess that the man on television merely represents the imaginary relationship and partnership you have not allowed yourself to have. He is a symbol, an object upon which you can attach your affection and bottled up potential to love with all your heart, while still being faithful and honest to your husband. Is this a bad thing? Or is it a necessary release of feelings that might otherwise fester and grow sour within you, if not released? Suppressed emotions can do great damage to our minds and bodies over time. Perhaps this is your heart’s way of finding a solution and an outlet for the unused affections it naturally longs to express.

It is the past-life relationship and traditions and culture that keep you bound in unhappiness that should concern you most. Where have you known your present husband before, and why are you tied to him? What unfinished business do you have? What is that relationship teaching you? How can you finish and accomplish what you came together to achieve? These are the questions you should be asking yourself. And once answered, you might discover that your cage door is opening naturally, and your heart will be set free.

I wish you clear insight and keen wisdom in all of this, dear Saira. You can solve this mystery with quiet thought and consideration. When you unravel the history between you and your husband, and begin to breathe free again, then I suspect that your fascination with the television personality will evaporate. Let that happen! And let yourself, always, be guided by the wisdom within your ancient soul. Love to you! Lianne

Comment on 12 Ways to Identify Past Life Friends, Lovers, & Enemies by Anon Tue, 08 Nov 2016 03:05:02 +0000 hello Lianne, this article is very interesting to me and i decided to read it specifically because i am wondering if i may have known this little girl in a past life. i’m 21, i work at a daycare and there is this 3 year old little girl who i feel the deepest connection to. i still remember my first day working there and being drawn to her and instantly she became my favorite. i always want to see her and when i’m not at work i miss her. she must feel a connection too, or something, because her parents tell me she does not stop talking about me at home and always asks for me. when they come to pick her up she cries when leaving me, most days her parents have to carry her out and she usually reaches her arm out for me. a ton of parents or new teachers that come along or even kids ask if i’m her mom or older sister, and we don’t look much alike so i ask them what makes them ask that and they say they don’t know they just felt like we were related. there’s even been a time where i wanted to quit for a better job and i couldn’t because i felt like i wouldn’t ever see her again and i didn’t want to take the chance, i absolutely love and adore this girl!

Comment on 12 Ways to Identify Past Life Friends, Lovers, & Enemies by Saira Sun, 06 Nov 2016 09:45:27 +0000 hi lianne,
read your article its great…. i have been having a very mysterious feeling since a year i hope u reply to this and clear it out to me. iam a lady in my mid thirties’, married but not happy in my marriage but i have no idea of breaking up…. i am a very clean person no extra marital relationships…okay coming to the point i actually have seen a person since my childhood he is in showbiz but i was not his fan but just like him thats it…. but last year unintentionally when i started watching his programme i had a strong feeling towards him… i could not explain what it is, i felt i wanted to see his shows everyday. one day i thought that this was not good and i decided not to see his shows and made a vow not to see for next 2 days (actually iam a very determined person if i feel i should not do it i would never) but i just could not i again started watching the next day…..
after that i started feeling, like my heart beating fast when he was somewhere near my place subconciously eventhough i do not know that he is here somewhere near my place analytically (we belong to different states ). Every time i see his face its like he is mine and i am born to meet him. One main information u need to know is that he does not know me at all he does not know that one person like me ever exist in this whole wide world.
Actually i know him since childhood why didnt i have all this feeling since small why should it suddenly start… , its its like when i see him i feel something happening deep inside my heart sooo much love and affection. i have tried wondered why is he in my heart and mind the more i try to remove him the more he sits tight, nothing is stopping me from thinking of him….do you think he would have shared my past life? now i just want to meet him once thats it! nothing more because i just want to find out how he would feel when he sees me but that has not happened till now… iam trying….all my trial is going in vain….. but ill not give up i ll keep trying…. My biggest question will i ever meet him? will he also feel the way i feel? will he have the admiration i have for him?
Is this anything to do with pastlife????? Pls explain i am going mad with all these questions in my mind. i could not share it with anyone as its very confidential to me…. Pls Pls Pls help

Comment on 12 Ways to Identify Past Life Friends, Lovers, & Enemies by Lianne Downey Sat, 05 Nov 2016 00:32:46 +0000 Hello Mukesh — You said it well: “nonsense.” This is why I talk extensively in my book, Speed Your Evolution, about how and where to find past-life information, why you should care, when it is important, and most especially, how to validate what you learn about past lives! I don’t like to plug my own books, but in this case, you’ve brought up a subject that many others may be wondering about.

What matters most about obtaining past-life information is whether or not it is useful to you in your present moment, your current lifetime. If all the information does is to flatter your ego, or lead you to buy a product or service, or keep you attached to some so-called advisor, then it is probably not worth your time and probably not true anyway. What you’ve posted here is exactly that kind of “fascinating fabrication” that so often turns up from unscrupulous types. Or even just from well-meaning busy-bodies who are experimenting with the subject.

If you experience a truly transforming shift in your knowledge about yourself, then the information has served you well. If it unlocks or solves a problem–mentally, physically, emotionally–then the information was good. If it boosts your ego? Probably nothing you should believe.

Thanks for writing! And I hope you find your own truths within. They are the most priceless, valuable information you will ever come across! Love to you —
