Past Life Relationships: 5 Signs

Of all the questions people ask me, determining if there are past life connections with current relationships ranks super high on the list. Here are five signs that point to yes:

1) You felt an immediate connection that was “out of this world” or so familiar you can’t believe this person ever wasn’t in your life.

This one seems obvious, but so many minds doubt what body and soul announce with megaphones. If you light up and synchronize with another person right away, then it’s a strong indicator that you’ve run into this soul before, perhaps multiple times. It doesn’t necessarily mean this person is your soul mate or that you belong together. It just means you’ve had dealings with this soul before, and the connection has begun to reawaken dormant parts of your larger Self.

2) You felt an immediate, intense, and often inexplicable aversion to someone.

Unless brought to the conscious level through remembered dreams, meditation, past life regression, spontaneous visions or a past life reading, past life memories reside in the subconscious. Your emotions help you to know what resonates or does not resonate with you, even if you don’t understand the underlying reasons. Intuitive people often experience negative first impressions of people who wish to harm them, and that does not necessarily indicate a past life relationship. Your Spidey senses might just be saving you a lot of future trouble! When a strong aversion occurs with regard to people who have proven themselves safe (to the best of your observation) or who truly love and wish to support your growth, then that aversion often indicates a background story of loss, betrayal, harm or misunderstanding. Finding the plot line(s) can help restore peace or give you confidence to part ways.

3) Your initial reaction to someone was really not what you expected, or you just can’t understand why you feel this way.

This sometimes happens with parents and newborns. The single mom who almost aborted or gave the child up for adoption finds herself unable to part with the baby, even if that means breaking contracts and having to revamp life plans. Conversely, parents who’ve eagerly awaited the birth often feel tremendous guilt for really not meshing with the newborn. They feel a strong sense of “should” or “logic” but for some reason, those pesky emotions won’t cooperate. The surprising reaction can also occur among adults — like when you meet someone you previously dismissed or idolized and have the opposite experience than you envisioned. This indicator doesn’t rely so much on intensity as confusion, especially tormented confusion. Why? Why? Why? Often, just recognizing and honoring the past life influence allows people to release the confusion and return to life in the now.

4) You feel like a different person around them.

In the case of family dynamics, you might have one parent or sibling whose presence seems to immobilize you or crumble your confidence, kind of kryptonite for Superman. Alternatively, you might encounter someone whose presence seems to ignite best parts you didn’t know existed. All the plans in the world suddenly may seem irrelevant as this “new” person completely reorients your life. The new direction may, in fact, be just what you need, or it could indicate cause for extreme caution.

In any case, if you find yourself compulsively acting in unusual ways, do take time to center yourself each morning and evening. I would also suggest The Blue Room meditation, followed by self observation: have your interests or emotions suddenly shifted back to “normal” after doing the meditation? If so, your new personality/interests/life path may have stemmed more from a perceived karmic imbalance than true guidance. Very often the compulsive aspect of relationships (or our reactions to those relationships) stems from our excitement about “getting our stuff back.” We can project all manner of energies (good or bad) onto souls we’ve known before, but what we really long for is a return to balance.

5) You feel like you neeeeeeed this person in your life.

Past life issues arise from the subconscious, where all time is now. If someone was your father in a past life and died while you were a young child, you might feel extra clingy and needy with this soul’s current incarnation. You might feel like your very survival depends on this person remaining in your life in a certain way. The subconscious does not differentiate between past, present and future. In a world where all time is now, past life bleed through represents information and feelings that may not be appropriate to this lifetime, causing inappropriately controlling or longing reactions. I see this evidenced in broken relationships where one or both parties just can’t let go, or in long term unrequited love affairs. Again, The Blue Room can be very helpful. Learning the bigger past life picture brings repressed memories into the conscious realm where they can be evaluated, understood and released. This allows healthier boundaries and a return to your own being, rather than giving energy to or trying to harness energy from, someone else.

Ideally, past lives don’t matter at all.

But when they do, they really do! If you have relationships that just won’t cooperate or that make you feel confused, “less than” or obsessive, you might want to explore past life factors. Automatic writing/journaling can help, as well as recording your dreams. If these methods don’t bring you the clarity you seek then you may want to consider help from a hypnotherapist or trusted intuitive. You came here in a fresh new body with the hope and intention of joy, freedom, growth and love. I wish you all the best in finding and reclaiming your true Self.

    Thanks. :)

  5. Laura, you are a joy to read, practical and usable guidance and no mumble about 15d or so ;-)

    I don’t think we meet many we haven’t met before, and the first part of our life is a repetition of earlier incarnations, and our infatuations are the joy of recognition, later the reality may show, as we meet those we have karma together with, what attracts people to each other.

    I have a blog where I try to show that all religions and esoteric traditions are facets in a diamond containing the full reality, just as two people standing at opposite sides of a house necessarily must tell a different story, where both are true. The religions have been created when they were needed in the development of man, and have functioned as classrooms up through time where people go, as long as they need the lectures.

    I have an article where I show the three powers that are behind all religious and esoteric systems: http://kimgraaemunch.wordpress.com/2008/09/29/serpents-of-the-kundalini-fire/

    I am also interested in practical applications in the esoteric work, and what I write about I have experienced myself, I have a piece on dream interpretation in esoteric work, as not much is written about this subject, and too much rubbish is written about dream interpretation: http://kimgraaemunch.wordpress.com/2008/09/29/serpents-of-the-kundalini-fire/
    My incitament to write it was the distance there were between esoteric work like Rudolf Steiners and the psychoanalysts like C.G. Jung, so I had to find out where they met.

    I hope you will enjoy my articles as much as I enjoy yours.

    Kind Regards,
    Kim Graae Munch

    I have been a “relationship” with a man for almost six years. He claims to be a sensitive and does possess some outstanding gifts of sight. I used to joke to my friends when God ment for me to meet someone, he would put him on my doorstep and that’s litterally how we met! Although he turned my head like no man ever, I ran three times from this man. I didn’t trust these overwhelming feelings. He kept pursuing me.
    Being psychic, he told me that our lives had been entwined through several lifetimes before. Being with him was – and still is like a drug. It’s not been the easiest path to be with him. It’s the constant string of other women. I’ve tried so hard to walk away. I stop all communications. And for whatevet reason, he will ask to see me and I’ll suprise myself by running to him. When I am around him, and especially if it’s a sexual encounter it’s like I become someone else. At the risk of sounding like a mushy teenager, it’s not just sex, he’s in my head, it’s so surreal. And afterwards my head is spinning and I’m trying to wrap my head around it all.
    Last night I asked him “what is it about us that no matter what happens, I get near you and it’s like I’m not myself anymore?” He reminded me that we are a culmination of past lives and personalities. The different versions of me are recognizing the different versions of him and the bond that has been there between us many times before.
    Not that I’m skeptical, but I’ve been puzzling over this for so long. I’ve kept a journal for years – further analyzing. I still love him, but I do not feel like I’m in love. Is it an addiction I need like a drug? Is it something deeper and karmic that makes us have to reconnect like lost souls?

    I found her….. again!
    When I was a child and very much connected to the universe, I had many visions…..But was I remembering my destiny from heaven or…….

    My adventure is not all here but will be some day……The story began when I was shown my journey in life.

    I had a very tall and gentle but powerful guide leading thru my journey. I was shown how my energy discovery worked in the universe by seeing the display of its power, I was also given all of the greatest lessons and tools for life. My guide took me to the Akashic Records and showed me where my life was in this long tube of light that was broken into slices like record albums. You could use your mind to peer into these discs and see with your mind what is and to happen. I saw my future self and then stopped as to leave an unopened destiny as a surprise for me. During my journey I asked my guide “can I see God” the answer excited me to meet the person or entity that made all this. I was led to another place thru a foggy curtain and down a winding trail in the atmosphere to a nice but simple thrown. As I was standing there I look up to my guide and said “does he come back here often” , as I looked back to the thrown he was sitting there, I stared straight into Gods eyes and I smiled a great big grin of happiness as he did to me, I looked back to my guide and said “Can you see him too” out of concern. No only you can see him now.

    I looked back to God, he was gone.

    I remember that as if it were two minutes ago. I have never felt an connection to the universe or God since as powerful as that, but do know that God does exist. I love my world very much and want the best for it. My destiny was to bring a new energy thru my work and to promote Law Of Attraction and other universal laws to our educational systems, the real education for Humanity. To trust God and the universe to supply you with answers you have and to learn how to “Ask”. This is what is needed to be taught and provided to our children, pure love and understanding. Only until then will we understand Gods connection to us…..

    He was pure energy, white sparks of holographic design. It had a face and body of a human-being , no hair or facial form to distinguish, a form of energy like electricity. He had solid light for eyes and mouth which formed a smile. He had hands and feet, he sat kind of side ways on the throne with one arm up like relaxing, I felt my soul being pulled towards him as we smiled and grinned at each other. It was the most powerful thing/experience Ive ever been near. Pure energy and light.

    I will never forget my trip thru eternity that Experience as time for me was not real . Im here for a reason and this true. He gave me everything to give to you.

    But now…..

    Reincarnation …..

    As a very young child I had always had the vision of a past life being a Knights Templar burned at the stake..even remember the evil little jerk that lit the fire then. I was robbed of my love to a woman..my career lied about …burned at the stake. I went back to source and stayed..angered …refusing to return….The next thing I remember was shining like a star …so brightly…and being approached to re-enter the world with a destiny greater than any human had had before… I am this man now. I missed a reincarnation that separated me from this woman..

    I found her again!!

    The memory of her was a vision of her holding a baby goat “1097 ad” … I saw a picture of her again “2011 ad” the same picture of her in the vision. I was there as a Knight (ancient Turkey)… ITS HER!!! I am the very same vibration as her, we are the same in every aspect. All details have proven true for us. Dates times and passions all coincide to bring us together again. I am in love with my destiny with her… from beyond time <3

    I have the sphere of rejuvenation for our worlds…Mantle.. the most powerful object in the heavens… now being born aware and as a master at mind and heart knowledge… born with this destiny knowledge intact and full awareness of my future at birth… Im back ♥ MantleMan

    Marriott = builder of Churches Knights Templar reg. 1135ad (burned at the stake)
    Loving the ride and you,

    Could someone help me? I’ve loved my best friend for four  years, unrequited. We met five years ago, he’s an outgoing jock, I’m a shy outcast. I was nervous to speak to him. He used to walk past my locker every day and with his gf and he and I would just make eye contact while he walked. We had a class together the next year, his gf had it too. He talked to me every day there and sometimes ignored her. It was so obvious I liked him that the teacher put him next to me every time she changed seats and always smiled at me when he and I would make each other laugh. The next year went the same way. The year after that we had P.E. and it had about 40 jocks in it. The only girls were me and two of my other best friends. He would stare at me from across the room daily and smile, probably at my blushing. Every time he made a basket in Basketball he would look at me. (I didn’t notice until my other friends pointed it out to me because I always looked down) I just finished 11th grade. He called me pretty 7 times, once at Homecoming in front of other people. He compliments me, gets annoyed when I judge myself, stands up for me when I get picked on, even if his friends did it; cussed out a girl for insulting me and told her never to talk to him again, told me he loves me as a friend, thanked me for always being there for him, and said he appreciates me. Ten of my friends have crushed on him. When one that still does blushed and said hello loudly and enthusiastically, he looked irritated and grunted. When I blushed and mumbled it, his eyes lit up and he replied happily. He treats my friends with no respect and treats me as if I’m a member of his clique. I’m the only unpopular kid he doesn’t pick on and is actually fond of. I don’t know why. I’m not gorgeous, wealthy, or easy, all things that attract athletic guys. He recently broke up with his gf of two and a half years (dif. one from before) and told me that he wants to start hanging out as friends. He’s also protective and supportive of me. I have always been able to sense his presence without having a clue he’d be there. The strangest part is that every time I get that feeling in my body and look up, he’s the first person I see AND he’s already looking at me! My heart feels like electricity is coursing through it when I speak with him, my pulse races, my throat feels as if there is a lump in it, I get warmer, my body shakes slightly, I stammer, and I blush heavily. Yes, even after all this time. We have this creepy thing where every time we are in the same room, we stare at each other. A lot of times when I walk in his eyes are already on me so I hold his gaze until I feel my cheeks get hot and then I get embarrassed and look at the floor. At the end of the year he came to my last class a lot and out of the corner of my eye I would see him looking at me. One time specifically he did and I looked over and smiled and he did too but I began to blush so I put my head down on my arms. When I looked later, he was looking at me smirking. He tells me that his life would be worse without me in it, he’d miss me if I stopped being his friend, and that he would feel like crying. I said I feel the same about him. I honestly do not know why I am so attached to him or what about him caused it in the first place. He asked me last year and I didn’t know what to say. Every time people ask I say “There’s just something about him.” Remember how I mentioned he treats every unpopular kid but me like crap? He also pretends to like girls that he knows for a fact like him but he’s never done it to me. I wonder if we were friends in a past life. It could explain my instant attraction, his protectiveness and fondness, my odd electricity situation, the weird staring thing we’ve always done, and his total acceptance of me and amount of caring. I can’t think of any other reason why a smart, funny, charismatic, interesting, gorgeous, and cool guy would be friends with a shy, average looking, overemotional, loser. He dislikes  people who wear all black, complain a lot, are sad a lot, and that are different than him. All of these things describe me and he told me I’m the only exception. We are opposites in almost every way, people like us normally HATE each other. (My parents are divorced, Mom doesn’t love me, I have a low self esteem, I like cheap clothes, love imaginative and creative things and hate physical, I’m lazy. His parents are happily married, his Mom loves him to death, he is egotistic, he loves expensive clothes,  he absolutely despises everything creative, loves sports, and never wants to hold still.) People are always shocked to find out that he is friends with me and can’t understand why he cares about me at all. Maybe I knew him in another time and that’s why we’re so attached to each other.

    I recently found out that I was happily married and was a home maker that kept very busy with the family. This was the 18th century and I have found my husband from the past in this life but we have met only in dream time. He is here in the physical but our strong connection has caused fear between both of us and it makes it hard for us to meet. I miss him so much.

  19. Posted by Bobbie on November 12, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    I’ve never met this guy in person. But the first time I saw him, I felt like a cord was pulling me toward him. It scares me a lot. I feel like I’ve known him my entire life, even though I’ve never spoken to him. He’s been on my mind every day since the encounter. I don’t know what to think about this. Help?

  20. Hi Bobbie,
    You are welcome to book a session with me if you would like more specific information about a particular relationship. My blog provides general information. Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for a half hour or hour phone session. Rates are on the “coaching, medical intuition, etc.” page.
    Blessings,

    I can truly relate. I met my now Ex unexpectedly at school … The moment he introduced himself I knew (felt) he was THE one. I couldn’t explain it and although he turned out to be my heartbreak. I love him as much as I did the first day we met three years ago. The thing is, internally I always felt like our bond was out off this world and that we’ve known each other for ions. So when we fought and couldn’t resolve or he would say or do something COMPLETELY out of (wht I felt was) his character, I’d be left confused as if I knew how he’d respond and I knew how he felt. But the physical self I just didn’t know. I treated him based on something hard to explain. I questioned myself often because I couldn’t believe the two aspects weren’t aligned. I have never been so connected to any person in my entire life. He strangely could feel it too… although he was a jerk he always said he felt as though we were soul mates. He meant the world to me spiritually, but physically was bad news! =( This article was very helpful because I knew this sort of thing had to have existed!!!

  22. Glad you found it helpful, Nina! Yes, those past life overlies can generate a lot of confusion!

  23. Posted by Michele on February 2, 2014 at 2:34 pm

    I am so happy to have found this! I have been searching for an answer to what has been happening. A few months ago I contacted a friend of my son about a gift for my son for his 18th birthday, this young man and I talked like we have known each other forever. Three months ago I met this young man in person and I couldn’t breathe, my eyes filled with tears and I was knocked off my axis. My feelings were intense and very motherly, not attraction, I just wanted to gather him to me and take care of him. Since then he has come and stayed with us for a few days over christmas and the reaction and feelings have only intensified. The more I get to know him the stronger my motherly instinct has grown. He was raised in a bad home, rejected by his parents for being gay, this has made it even harder for me to be rational. I have had to distance myself because my reaction is way out of normal and has never happened before. When I had each of my boys my heart grew and the love for them overshadowed every other aspect of life and still does, with this young man the same things happened only there was no growth it was instant and frankly scary. I feel with all my heart he is a child of mine from a past life. It is really difficult to deal with, and has caused many many tears, and heart wrenching helplessness from my side. He is separating himself as he does with most people who try to get close, I suspect he has been on his own for so many years having a mother care for you is kinda creepy. Any advise would be greatly appreciated, this struggle isn’t getting easier.

  24. I would definitely suggest the Blue Room Meditation: http://laurabruno.wordpress.com/2010/08/27/the-blue-room/

    If that doesn’t resolve the past life bleed through, then you might want to schedule a past life reading with me or some kind of a past life regression with someone who offers those.

    blessings to you…

    I am so glad to have found this site…I thought I was mad for so many years with the thoughts feelings and dreams.
    Have recognised myself as Malcolm Canmore king of scotland c.1057 AD..the worst thing about it is the vision of drowning a women in a well.He instigated this as a punishment for women while men hanged.This vision chills me to the bone.why am i recollecting this?I cannot see the purpose of this .

  26. You are probably trying to work through your guilt over it so that you can release it and move on. You may also have lifetimes in which you were the murdered one that this memory is trying to help you release, too. Without tuning in and doing a reading, those are just guesses to likely patterns. Blessings and healing, Laura
