Gut Reactions, Shadow Work and Past Life Bleedthrough

I see this pattern a lot during sessions, but having recently experienced the empowering and liberating results in my own life, I wanted to explain a bit here. Many people assume that if they feel instant aversion when meeting someone new that it indicates some unresolved past life issues or a huge warning that the person in question is really a no good meanie out to get them. “Always trust your gut!” In general, this is good advice, but not always. The more reactive our first impression, the more it indicates complex interplay. Inexplicable aversion does not validate a black and white world. It does, however, beg for our attention.

While the body provides us with visceral feedback, our interpretation of such information is not infallible, especially when we throw in complicating factors like past lives. Sometimes an instant aversion does indicate that someone really screwed us over in a previous lifetime, and our body sounds the alarm bell. Just as often, though, a strong instant aversion to someone could indicate that we attacked or betrayed them and don’t want to face our own Shadow.

The most devastating occurrence of this situation happens when a parent feels complete and inexplicable aversion to a newborn child. I have received many guilt ridden calls from parents who can’t understand why they wouldn’t feel natural empathy and love for such an innocent little being. I’ve also helped countless adults untangle fallout from a lifetime with a parent or parents who seemed strangely focused on denigrating their very existence. This sort of past life bleedthrough causes enormous pain on both sides, and there’s not always a simple, neat explanation for the behavior. People may have spent multiple lifetimes together in a variety of roles, and now this lifetime amplifies all those energies.

In other instances, one soul (usually the child) really doesn’t take issue with the other soul, except that that person seems so hell bent on initiating unprovoked hell in their lives. I often hear from the person who feels attacked, because with no current lifetime justification for the behavior, they’ve come to wonder if maybe they murdered or betrayed the other person in a previous lifetime. They call me wanting to learn how to make amends so that they can stop the seemingly senseless torment. Sometimes the person requesting past life information really has done something to provoke the current lifetime’s abuse, but just as often, the person with the instant aversion was the abuser or betrayer before, as well.

Past lives usually exist in the non-conscious realm, a vast part of us that also includes the dreaded Shadow. In this lifetime, signs of a non-integrated Shadow include extreme judgments of right or wrong, black or white, and a tendency to view oneself always as the victim, always the “good” one, always “right.” When we’ve carried guilt or shame around for many lifetimes, we stick those uncomfortable memories and awareness into our Shadow, where we’ll never find them without diligent courage and effort.

Because the non-conscious realm can still be triggered, though, especially by encountering the very souls we feel guilty about harming, the Shadow frequently casts itself upon our lives. Most of us try to run and hide from it, so that we can maintain the carefully controlled image of ourselves as always nice, always right, always good. People who’ve dealt at least to some extent with their Shadow will wonder, “Is it really me? What have I done to deserve this?” or “Why do I feel such aversion? (Contrast such questions to: “I wonder how evil that person really is. I don’t even want to look at such evil. Best to recognize it and avoid” or “Why does that person warrant such aversion?”) People who refuse to look at their own Shadow assume their own reactive aversions must be correct assessments of the other person’s guilt and/or that they themselves are victims of persecution for being too perfect or wise. The Shadow Workers ask the difficult, soul searching questions with sincerity, not as rhetorical means of shoring up fragile illusions.

Rarely does life (or a collection of many lifetimes) wrap everything into a crystal clear tally of all good on one side and all bad on the other. If you’ve found yourself on either end of immediate, strong aversion, then you might want to try the Blue Room Meditation, as taught to me by astrologer and friend, Timothy Glenn. This soul-to-soul exchange acknowledges the possibility of previous connections and seeks to rebalance the energies between souls. In times of extreme trauma, betrayal, fear or disappointment, sometimes we leave pieces of ourselves in “care” of another soul. Those pieces might be Shadow parts that we fear, but they can just as easily be gifts, soul “gold” and a sense of childlike wonder. Rebalancing the energies between souls frees each soul to carry its own energies without feeling burdened by carrying someone else’s “stuff.”

People who project the strongest aversion and attacks onto someone else will often resist being brought into the Blue Room. I find that interesting, but since we really don’t know how things will balance out until we’ve done the meditation, I never assume. It always takes courage to approach the Blue Room, because we might discover that we are, in fact, the energy thieves who will now need to return those energies and gifts to their rightful keeper. Even in that instance, a certain sense of relief occurs. Just as the thief in this life can never fully relax with a stolen possession, borrowed or stolen energies never feel comfortably secure. They don’t quite fit, and on some level, we know it. In the event that we are the ones receiving a return of missing energy, then spontaneous healing and understanding can occur. Parts of ourselves that felt empty or broken can finally fill up — at least as pertains to this particular relationship.

Some people receive dramatic visions and past life downloads during a Blue Room Meditation. Others cry, shake or feel energy swirling. Some people feel nothing in the actual meditation, but then a dramatic shift happens in the “real” world relationship. Again, the unpredictability of the Blue Room requires courage, but potentially profound results reward the risk. Sometimes the past life “story” helps us let go of a particularly nagging relationship or explains why a “random” encounter continues to haunt us. In the event that you try the Blue Room and still feel bothered by strong aversions, a past life reading or past life regression might help with the release. You can find out more about the differences and similarities of those here. In the meantime, I encourage you to try the Blue Room. It’s a free method of inviting peace and relief into your life and relationships.

Blessed Be …

and be the blessing!

Happy Summer Solstice

Today’s post comes from a Raph channeling client turned dear friend. “Vi” is a Reiki Master Teacher and all around deeply compassionate woman who has found a way to personalize the Blue Room Meditation (originally shared with me by Tim Glenn). As Vi describes below, instead of inviting other people into this soul- and energy- balancing meditation, she invited different parts of herself. I love when people take tools and intuit new things to do with them — and then decide to share those new applications so that others can explore and recreate as well. Somehow it seemed important to share this on Summer Solstice, right after a New Moon, and the day of greatest light in the Northern Hemisphere. Let your Light so Shine!

Many thanks to Vi. I’ll let her share the magic below:

I wanted to share an amazing transformative tool & experience. This personally dovetails on much that has been unfolding for me over the last few days, maybe even weeks. So without going into long detail, let me just offer the tool and you’ll know if you want to explore as I did.

First, I started with Laura Bruno’s Blue Room Meditation. Last night before bed, while holding 2 heart shaped pieces of jasper two dear friends gifted me and small pieces of rough ruby & emerald that “Raph” suggested might assist me with my abundance manifestation… I went into meditation, inviting in my guides, etc. ultimately making my physical life experience here & NOW into a “blue room”. That’s right. Then I invited both my ego/mind and heart into the space. After a period of time I discussed what they had both brought to my experience and asked that my ego/mind now allow my heart to take the lead. It had done well, and in appreciation for all it has offered, it was now time for it to allow another to lead. Those who are students of A Course in Miracles will particularly appreciate this, I think. I really put my heart into this and truly felt a shift.

THIS MORNING, I went into the same space, this time however, inviting in all of the karma, drama, experiences, etc. of ALL my lives; past, present & future, in all dimensions and all realities. It was a crowded space! Again in a loving, acknowledging and gratitude-filled way, I asked Archangel Michael to escort out of the blue “true” me all of the karmic drama (from everywhere mentioned earlier), while leaving behind the lessons and understandings without any attachment or judgement — releasing ALL FEAR. Leaving behind only LOVE, JOY, PEACE, FREEDOM, ABUNDANCE…. and more to come with grace and ease. I stayed in this later space a long time just blissed out focused on being Love-FULL and Fear-LESS!
Coming out of it, it took me at least an hour to get grounded. Huge stuff has shifted, and it feels like it is still ongoing 3 1/2 hours later… like a DNA shift. I am breathing different.

So, I had to share. Hugs to all of you who I adore so very much! ~Vi

The Blue Room

I learned this technique from my favorite astrologer/numerologist/tarot reader and generally amazing friend, Timothy Glenn, but it’s so effective, I wanted to share it with all of you!

Anyone who has followed this blog, watched my videos or had sessions with me knows how much I love the Sat Yam Meditation as a method for releasing grief, anger, frustration, and/or fear, whether from this life or other lifetimes. Well, Tim has given me another tool to share with you. It’s called “The Blue Room,” and it works well for any relationship that you suspect old karmic ties may be influencing. As a past life reader, I’d have to add here that MOST relationships at this time have some sort of karmic tug to them. So many of us are here to finish and release old business that it’s pretty safe to say all your close family, friends and work relationships have some sort of karmic something affecting them.

The nice thing about The Blue Room meditation is that it does not involve “cutting” cords or ties. Rather, it functions as an energy exchange and rebalancing. So many karmic techniques involve actually cutting old ties, and sometimes we don’t want someone completely out of our lives. Sometimes we just want to love them … now … without all the past life craziness. The Blue Room allows this to happen in a graceful, gentle way.

Instructions: simply imagine yourself in a blue room. Blue floor, blue ceiling, blue lamps, blue furniture … blue everything …

Blue Room

To be completely accurate, this photo would need to feature blue flowers, but it was the closest image I could find on short notice and I’m not a Photoshop guru! Anyway, you get the idea: BLUE. Surround yourself with blue.

Next, tune in to whomever you want to invite into the room and welcome them to a blue seat. In your mind’s eye, calmly and sincerely explain to them that you would love to live in balance with them from now on. Tell them that you will be reclaiming any karmic energy of yours that has seeped into their being and that you will be returning any karmic energy of theirs that has seeped into yours. Perform the exchange and know that in doing so, you are ACTUALLY changing and rebalancing the relationship “in real life.” You can hug the person or just let them go. Whatever needs to happen will happen, and this does not necessarily mean they will disappear from your life. More than likely, the relationship will deepen.

You can use this technique for individuals or you can create a huge room for groups of people you have less intense relationships with but want to ensure they remain/become balanced.

I do a LOT of past life work, on myself and certainly in sessions. I’ve found many tools, but this is one of the easiest for people to use on their own. Sometimes people still “need” to hear the story or circumstances in order to let go of an ancient trauma, in which case, please do feel free to set up a session. I just love to empower people as much as possible.

Thanks to Tim for sharing this wonderful technique. He’s my astrologer/numerologist/tarot reader of choice and also, coincidentally, the inspiration and information source for Tom Brown in the Schizandra Series.
