I love this article on past lives!! I’ve had many unusual encounters with people including my preset partner of the past 12 years. However, things have gotten strange for me the past five years. First of all, I briefly went to school with a guy who is very good friends with my brothers. This guy is a little bit older than me and was moved from school to school. Even though we hadn’t really spoken much as kids and teenagers, I do remember a moment in time when we were alone waiting for the bus to come. I must have been about 13 or 14 and randomly thinking how I wanted to marry him! Silly thought at the time. Then he disappeared but I always heard about him through the grapevine because he was really popular and bad ass. A few times over the past 20 years I’ve had very brief encounters of meeting him while dating an ex boyfriend. Once my ex had to stop by his place to pick something up. This guy came to the truck window and I looked into his eyes. His eyes! Something about his eyes and voice really stood out in that moment in time. It was strange, like a recognition. Then about 5 years ago, around the time my brothers became best buds with him, I went to an event with my current boyfriend. There he was! He shook my hand and looked puzzled over me and asked my brother why hadn’t he been told I was his sister? He shook my hand, that’s when I realized he is left handed like I am and the hand to hand connection felt like electricity. The look in his eyes! Yet again, another moment in time that stood still. He felt larger than life and at a height of about 6 foot 5 or so, he seemed even bigger than that. Shortly after that I added him as a friend on Facebook. For quite awhile he would serial like my shares etc and then I started doing the same. Then we started having conversations about mutual interests and then some flirting. There was this over the top sexual attraction to him even though i would consider him to be my ‘type’. It was crazy, especially since I started having dreams about him and everything felt so intense and below the surface, so to speak. Some kind of psychic connection or something. Anyhow, the past while I feel like the whole situation has fizzled out and I’m partly relieved. I’m in a long term relationship and was feeling rather guilty about it. He rarely communicates with me anymore. There is always the high chance of meeting him again due to living in my old community and his friendship with my brothers.

Now, this is my most recent strange situation with a different guy! Back in 2003, I was walking home from work one day, I was randomly approached by a guy that somehow convinced me to go back to his home to hang out and have a few drinks. Normally, I wouldn’t do this but he was insistant. We go to his place where he is there with a friend. We talk and I have one drink, then he starts telling me how beautiful I was and that he had been watching me walk home everyday for awhile and finally got the nerve to approach me. Suddenly he’s touching my neck and I felt like I was on fire! I ended up having a sexual encounter with him that very time. It was insane!! Afterwards he told me to stick around but he had to go down the road for a minute. I waited a little bit but he had other friends stopping by, guys and girls. I felt uncomfortable, so I told them I was leaving. So I just took off home. Later on I was really sad about leaving and wanted to know more about him. I only knew his first name and where he lived. I waited about a week and decided to stop in to see him. This time only to find out the place was empty and he moved! I actually felt devastated! I became obsessed over him and wanted to find him again …but how? So, several months went by and I ran into his friend. I asked where he was but his friend said that he was living out of town with his new girlfriend. He also informed me that I should have stayed longer and waited for him to come back because he felt bummed out that I left on him!! Anyhow, I tried to push that out of my mind and moved on.
Now to present day….My boyfriend and I joined a martial arts club back in the fall. Over the winter a new girl joined our class. She kept talking about her boyfriend being a brown belt and that he was transferring over from their old club to this one. It wasn’t until last month that I met him and came to the eerie realization that it was the same guy I has encountered years ago and of course, the same first name. This time he is not only a new member but an instructor for my class. So, he decides to partner up with my boyfriend in class right away and they got along. But the weird part was when students shake each others hands at the end…he doesn’t shake my hand but quietly tells me ‘Thanks for coming.’ I wasn’t sure how to take this as I’m not sure if he remembers what happened years ago. I know I never forgot. In fact, I even wrote about it in a diary I kept back then! Anyhow, I haven’t gone back to many classes much since but I wonder everytime now. I also greatly admire the other instructor but I feel a different connection to him. Like he is a great teacher figure I can really look up too. I admire him, he is so cool. Like the big brother I never had! I’m wondering if you have any insights towards these two guys I’ve written about and how this plays a part in my past life and currant life path?
Thanks so much!

How do you know if someone is your twin flame?

I have this best gay friend who is my twin, we look alike, speak alike, say the same things at the same time. He’s the male version of me and I feel like i can’t be without him. We are close and there are times that I know he’s gonna call before he does like I get something that just tells me oh he’s gonna call to come over and he does or I played an old song for months and one day he just posted the song. Or I’ll be thinking of some stuff and when I see him then he will mention stuff I was thinking and I’m like how did you know. That’s not even half of it. He knows what I want more than anyone without me even saying. I’m having hard time meeting someone now because I’m in love with him. We have something there, he has some attraction to me because he has said he likes girls too but he wants to be with a guy. I wonder why we were supposed to meet and why we’re not meant for each other.

Comment on 12 Ways to Identify Past Life Friends, Lovers, & Enemies by Lily http://zazenlife.com/2013/11/20/12-ways-identify-past-life-friends-lovers-enemies/#comment-207912 Wed, 13 Apr 2016 17:12:45 +0000 http://zazenlife.com/?p=20039#comment-207912 I’m really, really thankfull for this reply! I was reading this and I started to cry, so I thoutght to myself “well, it’s not really a big deal that I’m crying, since I cry about everything”. But, as I kept reading, I got to the part where you talk about tears and “releasing those old emotions of grief” and I remembered that I started “crying about everything” when I was pregnant. I thought it was a hormones thing, but that has been more than 4 years ago and I keep crying about every little thing I see. So, yes, maybe that is just me releasing those old emotions of grief.
Also I didn’t mention before that my grandmother has a fear similar to mine, mostly with me and my father. But she does cling a lot, lately she can’t spend a day without talking to us at least once. I would like to talk with her about past lives but she’s almost 90 years old and I don’t think she would even remember the conversation later.
After spending my whole life so close to her and knowing all about her fears and seeing her in so much pain for them, I think is a really good possibility that I got to “learn” that from her and ended up with those fears myself.
But, that doesn’t shake the feeling I have with my kid. And how I always felt that I had things from past lives in this one. Like, since I was a child I was terrible scared every single time I heard and airplane because I was sure they were gonna drop a bomb. And as I grew up I got more and more scared and moved about all things regarding wars. So, almost since I can remember I knew something regarding a war happened to me in a previous life. And I also had a recurrent nightmare as a child, that I used to think it was a memory, were I was hiding with someone and then I could see a lot of knights coming for us. And I don’t remember this, but my mom says I had an imaginary friend growing up, that had a weird, exotic name that not even her knew or heard before (later she found out it was Egyptian).
Well, I don’t know why I’m saying all this stuff but since I’m on it… I tryed to have a past life regression not long ago (by my self), but I felt like I was just imagining stuff, and not really seing anything. I did it with a youtube video (I don’t have the money or means to try it with a professional or any other way really), and every time the voice on the video said things like “what are you wearing?” I couldn’t answer, and when I could I was like “…this is the answer? no, it’s not, this maybe? no, it’s not either.” and so on. A little disappointing but I believe I got a little glimpse of something.
Thanks again for the reply! It took me some time to see it since it was on my spam folder, but it was worth the wait 🙂

Comment on 12 Ways to Identify Past Life Friends, Lovers, & Enemies by Lianne Downey http://zazenlife.com/2013/11/20/12-ways-identify-past-life-friends-lovers-enemies/#comment-207780 Sat, 09 Apr 2016 00:30:47 +0000 http://zazenlife.com/?p=20039#comment-207780 Dear Emily, I can so relate to your concerns about meeting up with this man in future lifetimes. I’ve known a few people in my own that I’m hoping, if we ever do meet again, I will be much more capable of managing my connection so that no one gets hurt or molested, cheated on, or financially conned.

In fact, now that I’m considering that — I can say that we all, each and every one of us, have abusers in our past- or present-life history that we do not want to encounter again! And no matter how we escaped from the situation, or if we ever did manage that while we were still in our bodies, we certainly do not want to repeat those experiences!

Everybody who’s reading this, think for a moment: How many times do you think you have experienced abusive behavior (mentally, physically, financially) with people you believed to be, at first encounter, friends, family, lovers, good business partners, or even total strangers, etc., etc. — in other words, safe to be in company with? Yes, exactly. “A thousand times,” as my husband said when one of his parents asked him, “How many times have I told you …” because the parent’s alternate catch-phrase was, “I’ve told you a thousand times!” And that is how we learn. But we DO learn. Each time we repeat a pattern, we get a little better at managing our emotions, our bodies, our safety, our intuition, our independence, our finances, and our spiritual growth. Please do not ever feel stupid or wrong or guilty or shamed about these incidents! (I am talking to myself, too, because I have certainly blamed myself for them.) If you don’t know the flame is hot, you have to stick your finger in it to find out, right?

So Emily, you say you have given this much introspective time, sorting out what good lessons you could take away from it. Bravo! That is excellent! And now, if you ever meet such a charmer as this guy again, you will be more cautious, right? You might detect the signs much earlier? That goes for your present lifetime, and all of your future lives. If he should appear to you again in a guise similar to the one he chose in the present, you will be triply alerted to it. In other words, you probably won’t make the same mistake. So circumstances will not play out in the same way. Not if you don’t play the same role you played in the present life! That is the key. But how could you? You have learned a lesson you cannot “forget” in future lives. Not unless you choose to ignore your inner promptings.

I do love to dance the tango and it is true: It takes two to tango. Two cannot dance the same dance if you are not doing the same steps. You cannot dance it at all if you refuse to connect. But you will need to think over the ways in which you were trapped, and make sure you really understand how that happened, how and especially WHY you connected with this person. A past-life link might lead you to someone, but it certainly does not mean that you have to connect again in the same way you did in the past. You (and all of us) must learn to exercise your powers of discernment and choice! So there’s no way any power in the universe could coerce you into repeating the same kind of relationship drama with this person, or any other. It is always your choice. You have already released yourself, dear, and now you must simply remain free by the choices you make today and tomorrow.

One scary thing you’ve said here: “The thought of having to play out some messed up similar version of events in future lifetimes disturbs me, and though I’ve tried to let him know in the metaphysical and astral realm that I forgive and love him, I wish that it wasn’t so terrifying and inconceivable to do so in this lifetime someway somehow.”

Yikes! My experience with abusers is that this is another trap they can use, the whole “I forgive you” trap. They cry and plead and say they’re sorry, and then they do it again later, after you’ve “forgiven” them and stayed with them, because you are an inherently good person and believe that is the right thing to do. You/We deserve respect, safety, care, and love ALL the time! Not only when they’re not in some kind of “mood” that they’re sorry for later, or under the influence, or “don’t know what came over me,” etc. ABUSERS ARE DANGEROUS PEOPLE. Do not return to their realm of control, even for a minute, if you have a choice. Trying to find “closure” — another trap! Such people do not ever allow “closure,” or else if they do, they’ve lost control over you. And these individuals are out of control of themselves, so they seek to control others. Trouble is, they also do not act alone. They have astral companions who push their weak minds to take these abusive actions.

Dear Emily, please keep your distance, even in the “astral and metaphysical realms,” where lower-frequency entities of all sorts prey upon the weak-minded and influence physical people to carry out their twisted desires, which they can no longer satisfy. My final words to you are to learn more about and understand the principles of “frequency relationship” or vibrational, harmonic connection. That is how we truly connect with others. If you want to sever your connection to this abusive, astrally possessed (even if intermittent) person, then you must maintain a frequency of consciousness that never veers in his direction. Strong words and a strong warning to you! Keep him out of your mind and your life. No court can protect you from astral linkage, but you can protect yourself by your thoughts. And if you are still tempted, ask yourself why you feel you deserve his abuse, because that will be what you bring upon yourself if you keep worrying about him or thinking of him. As the song says, “Let it go!” Let him go. You’ve already lived your part in his life. Don’t carry on further.

Interesting that you met him on your spiritual path. I, too, met one of my abusers there. In fact, I have heard so many stories like yours. I suppose people who really are broken, who need help, are also people who seek for some assistance in metaphysical schools, churches, and other places you wouldn’t expect to find such predators. But the kind of help they need is not the kind we, as physical beings, can provide for them. Best to stay out of range in the meantime. Until they are ready for change, nothing we do can help them. And we must first care for ourselves and our own well-being. I hope you will turn your attention now to finding a partner who truly loves and respects you — all the time! Because that is what you deserve. No less. Peace and love to you — L.
