With the use of deep hypnosis clients are able to experience soul memories between lives following a past life death. Based on thousands of consistent reports from clients of all cultures and religious backgrounds, this has amassed an entirely new source of evidence. This article examines one aspect of this knowledge about souls who are to be our children.
Some of the early past life pioneers stumbled upon memories between past lives quite by accident. One of these pioneers, Dr. Michael Newton worked with thousands of clients over thirty years. Together with other therapists trained by him, peoples experiences show a remarkable consistency that cannot be sensibly dismissed as pure fantasy. Many ordinary people with little prior knowledge, and from all the world’s religions or non-religious backgrounds, reported the same basic experiences.
One of these experiences involves the selection of the next life. This may include the type of body, parents and life situation. If a soul wishes to experience grief it will choose parents who are going to die or a family that will have a loss of a loved one. If it wishes to experience powerlessness it will pick a weak physical body. I’ll illustrate this with an extract from a client I’ll call Katja who was at the point of choosing her current life with her spirit guide called Merlo following a past life as the Mexican peasant with more regard for his donkey than people. She experienced the spirit world in semi human form;
I can feel an eagerness to come back into the physical life again. So what do you do? I’m leaving my group, saying goodbye. There’s no need to hug them, we feel so connected they know I care. There is a big white building, big walls, flat top, white, big doors, and inside there are stages. Do you know what this building is? It’s to see the bodies, or scenes. I have a glimpse into a life. How are they presented to you? I move round the stages. They are made of wood, not very big, like in a small theatre. How do they work? I’m not sure if I’m supposed to stay at the front or go round the back to see what’s there. I can see Merlo, he’s a little bit behind me, and when I look at him he’s telling me ‘you can decide this alone, you will know’. So what do you do? I see a girl in Japan. It’s more like a film than a theatre. She’s very tiny and fragile. Is her life presented to you? Her father is very strict and her mum dies early. Why do you reject this option? Maybe it’s too difficult because she’s so fragile. I see a second wife of the father and she’s very strict as well. What’s the next option? My life. My body. It will be unwanted by its mother as a child, but having a deep connection to the father. Having to learn a lot of empathy with the mother. A lot about betrayal. Betrayal of the father and of others. To betray and to be betrayed. What attracts you to this life? I can sense a very strong will connected with this body, and a flexible mind. I wouldn’t call this life easy, but there are more possibilities. Are you shown any other possibilities? Yes, a boy, his body looks very clumsy. I’m shown a very shy personality, very insecure, of this boy and of this man. It’s like it would maybe be in England or Ireland. The family are living a very simple life, very underprivileged, not much capacity to build on. So why do you reject it? The boy has a lot of learning difficulties. I thought I could influence more with the one before. Are you shown any more options? That’s it. And do you discuss this with Merlo? He knows, he agrees.
Katja had the choice of three options, one being the present life she is in, with the others still on the theme she was learning as a soul, but with varying degrees of difficulty. Note that it was Katja’s soul decision which parents and life situation she picked. Returning to Katja’s regression:
Where do you go next? It’s like a long tunnel, it’s getting darker. Do you know what is happening to you? The tunnel to this life. So what happens at the end? I can see a baby. How old is this baby from the point of conception? Six months. What happens? I take a moment, and watch it. What part of the body do you enter? Through the brain. What does it feel like? There’s a lot of energy there in the brain. I can’t help feeling a little bit trapped. I’m floating a little bit in and out. When do you finally merge with the baby? Eight months. What does that feel like? I can feel the difficulties my mother has with being pregnant, the disappointment, she feels she is too young and it’s the wrong man… she fell in love with another man. How long does the merger take? It happens over a period of time. I have to get used to the brain, it’s not an easy brain. It feels like my soul is much softer and quieter than the brain of this baby.
Our children’s souls have moved from a spirit world of unconditional love and bliss and have chosen to learn by being in human form. They have picked us as parents and know the sort of life and have chosen the emotions and situation to resolve. Sometimes they may pick us as parents not for their own learning but to teach us. Many early childhood deaths have been planned so that as parents we can work through the emotions of grief.
As parents we have an Earthly responsibility to help children in their upbringing. Our spiritual responsibility is to respect that they have their own life plan that will be different from ours. In the spirit realms all souls see themselves as equals but with different experiences and knowledge. Perhaps we can remember this.
