Have you ever experienced a fear or a phobia that is an unexplainable fear leading to the fact that it isn't present life but might be past life?
Have you ever dreamt of another time where memories might surface into a dream from another era or age of history which raise an unspeakable point of perspective?
If you have experienced this chances are you may be connecting to a past life experience and soul/past lives usually come through by the Spirit of that incarnation. Usually there is something to have been learned from that era that applies to your present self now!
It is after all a lesson that has been waiting for some time to be resolved. It could be a numerous wadge of information that flows through often known as a download. Healing energies might flow through the link also to help you move forward with the information that is known and presented to you within the link itself.
For example ~
Do you have a strong fear of drowning or of bridges?
You might be wary of bridges as well including footbridges, rope bridges, burning bridges, etc.
If you are drawn to certain names or countries as well, somewhere that you feel very much drawn to go to? That can be factoring in a past life. For example - I'm very much drawn to Ireland. I want to go there to visit the countryside and the faery folk legends and magic. I'm not irish though but feel drawn to go and visit their land.
The same can apply to places that you don't neccessarily think about like North America, my soul's vibration is connected to a family of Elders which often come through working alongside Kali, the Goddess and Deity. She isn't shown as her goddess form but is shown as a wise medicine woman working with healing energies and divinatory energies. I have memories that have popped up through meditation also about her guiding a link in to connect.
So it can relate to names as well.... and places you are drawn to, animals you are drawn to work with, etc, its about taking on board what resonates with you...
If trust is a lesson for you to learn in this life like trusting your intuition and finding your voice then chances are it can be past linked too. Its a journey in which people learn about along the way. But once you start, its too easy to go too deeply into it and have to take an initial step backc to reassess what you have learned from the journey itself.
