ABUNDANCE AND YOUR PAST LIVES
of us have been there at some time. Just when you’re finally getting on top of
things, a big bill knocks you down again. Or you may always have enough to get
by, but feel that you can never splash out without worrying. Or you constantly work
your socks off, but never earn as much as you should.
these experiences ring any kind of bell for you, then read on. The problem may
come from a past life – and if so, you can deal with it in surprisingly easy
can a long-gone life from an earlier time be having this kind of effect on you
now? The answer is, it’s not that life which is now causing these things. The real cause was your inner reaction to
that life. Until it’s looked at and dealt with, that will remain within you, and
continue to mould and shape your life now.
Step One: For whatever reason, life deals
us an unpleasant experience.
Step Two: We wonder why it happened, and start
figuring out how to avoid the same
ever happening again.
Step Three: We seize upon something that we
think was the real cause of the problem, and make a strong inner commitment to avoid
that kind of thing from then on.
people decide that having money was the real cause of a bad experience, that
decision works like a powerful vow to avoid any form of wealth from then on. That
belief goes deep within the psyche – and unconsciously condemns them to lives
of poverty from then on.
example, one of my regression clients came along because she’d had financial
problems all her life, and was tired of it. She wanted to get to the bottom of
the problem by seeing if it came from a past life experience.
her regression, she found herself in a large manor house, sometime in the 16th
or 17th century. She saw beautifully carved wooden furnishings, rich
tapestries on the walls, large fireplaces in every room and enough servants to
look after everything.
that time, she was a boy in his teens. He’d just inherited the place because
his parents had been carted off as enemies of the king. He would never see them
again. He felt completely alone and desolate.
was a key watershed in that lifetime and for many lives afterwards. He felt
that wealth had only brought him sorrow. If his family had been nobodies,
living more simply, none of this would have happened.
big emotional reactions go deeply within us. If we don’t re-think them, they
become part of our inner foundation, which follows us faithfully into our
my client saw that, the way ahead was clear. We can’t change what happened to
us in the past, but we can change our
reactions to it.
way to do that is to find a higher reason for the difficult past life
experience. That gives us a new story about it – and our stories about
ourselves are what create our lives. This is why, whenever possible, I
encourage my clients to connect with their inner guidance to get a more
expanded overview of what happened.
this case, my client’s guides told her that the real lesson of the experience
was for the boy to discover his inner strength in having to handle that
situation. Their parting symbolic gift to her was a beautifully carved wooden
box – with a large gold coin inside.
LIFE EFFECTS ON PROSPERITY
are the four main past life reasons that create current prosperity problems:
1. FEAR: Sometimes people become afraid of money
because it once brought grief or danger into their lives. They might have
experienced jealousy, spiteful behaviour, attacks, loss and even death because
of being well off.
2. REGRET: Others may feel that they abused their
wealth, or behaved selfishly with it. In the between-life realms, they decide
they don’t deserve to be rich ever again – so of course abundance becomes
scarce for them after that.
3. UNDESERVING: Low self-worth is like a
hidden snake in the grass that slithers its way into so many areas of our lives
– especially finances. Many people have had lives that were so humble or
exploited they were left feeling worthless. Healing this core issue will free
them to move towards a life of joyful abundance.
4. UNSPIRITUAL: The idea that money is
unspiritual is an endemic belief that holds countless people in unnecessary
poverty. Many who are now on a spiritual path have spent one or more lifetimes
in some sort of religious community. Whether Christian, Buddhist, or more
ancient and even heretical groups, all these communities have one big belief in
common: money is unspiritual.
people entered these communities, it was common to give up all personal
possessions and donate their assets to the group. The group then looked after
them and provided all their basic needs. In exchange, they got a wonderful
sense of higher purpose, companionship with like-minded people, and shelter
from what was often a rough outside world.
people who have had that experience, and are now on a new kind of spiritual
path, unconsciously re-create a kind of monastery-for-one for themselves. As a
result, they always have enough to cover their basic needs – but never any
TO HEAL THESE PROBLEMS
you think you may have money problems because of your past lives, what can you
do about it now? Although it’s interesting, and can be helpful, it’s not absolutely
necessary to find out about the exact past life experience that’s now holding
you back. This is because the real problem is now in your deep-down beliefs about
money and yourself.
can revise, resolve and heal this issue by taking the following seven steps:
Re-think your beliefs about money, and about
people who have it. It helps to think of it as a natural gift of life - like
air, water or the fruits of the earth. Do a little ritual to mark this
important turning point for you. Light a candle, and write down your old
negative beliefs on a piece of paper. Tear it up into tiny pieces, saying ‘this
is the end of that old way’. Then write your new beliefs in big colourful
letters. Put that in a place where you’ll see it often.
Forgive all your selves for whatever mistakes
you might have made. Our mistakes are like falling off a bike when we’re
learning to ride. The wise way is not to throw the bike away, but to pick
yourself up and try again.
Create a new, positive affirmation – such as ‘I
am open to receive the natural abundance of life’. Repeat that often,
especially just before going to sleep and on first waking up.
Count your blessings regularly, from the biggest
to the tiniest. Appreciating what you already have has the same effect as
watering a plant. It will grow!
Imagine in as much detail as possible what you’d
do next and how you’d live if you had more money.
Imagine what you’d like to contribute to the
world if you had completely unlimited resources.
Be generous to yourself and others. Make ‘I can
afford it’ your new mantra. Say it to yourself as you give a few extra coins to
a beggar, or buy something that isn’t necessarily the cheapest. These words and
actions combined will send strong signals to your subconscious about your
readiness for prosperity.
these ways we’ll not only shake off the negative effects of our past lives – we’ll
also bring a more enlightened form of abundance into the world. Imagine how
much good spiritual people could do once they allow themselves to have money. It’s
a worthy cause. Put your penny in the tin - you can afford it!
