Eras of Our Past Lives

by June Kaminski, MSN PhD(c)

As we all know, the human race has progressed through many distinct eras of history. Often the first past life "recall" that people experience is a feeling of resonance with a certain time period along the continuum of human existence.

ocusing on your reactions and sense of affinity (or aversion) to a certain time period in history can help you to zero in on pertinent past lives, that often teach us much about how to live in the here and now.

Feeling the Affinity

A good place to start discovering which eras feel familar to you is to look at art, architecture, clothing, and the general patterns of particular historical eras. As you do, pause and reflect on any feelings, images, memories, tuggings of the heart that you feel as you attune to a specific era.

Many people feel a strong "pull" to a certain time period. Some feel enraptured with the Renaissance, others with Biblical times. Medieval, Colonial, even pre-historic times may seem so real to you, and so familar. What time periods would you have loved to live in? Chances are, you did!
