Hallows Everyday - 13

A Technique to Remember a Past Life

Cleanse you space with whatever you usually use, such as white sage, palo santo, etc. Place a white candle next to a mirror that will stand on its own. You can place the mirror so it securely rests against something to hold it. Also, any stones and crystals that may assist in opening the third eye and journeying, may be held in your hands, or place between you and the mirror. Lapis lazuli, Herkimer diamond, hematite, carnelian, and amethyst, are excellent stones for connecting the past and present, while protecting and grounding. In addition, and most importantly, they assist us in “coming back” from the journey at any time we feel the need. You are in control, if you choose to end the journey, simply make the intention and move around, turning on lights, bringing yourself back into the present. Quiet is best for this journey, no music, phones turned off. This is best done at a time when no one will disturb you or make noise in another part of your home.

The candle’s light should be set just behind and to the side of your mirror. It should illuminate your face gently, but the candle itself should not be visible in the mirror. A few sheets of paper with pen or pencil near at hand will be of help if you want to make note of anything you wish to remember particularly later. Turn off any other lights in the room and sit in front of the mirror. Close your eyes and take deep breaths, gradually slowing and deepening them, bringing yourself into a light trance state. Use whatever technique to bring this state about that works for you. Now, gaze into the mirror, looking deeply into your eyes and say the words:

“With my guardians’ and guides’ protection surrounding me, 
I open myself to receive information about a previous life I have lived.
Let the memories flow, let the memories come.
Let the memories come now.
I remember, I remember, I remember. ”

Repeat and concentrate until your reflection begins to blur; the edges whitening slightly. Gradually you may notice that your face changes, becomes that of someone else. Look at the face,  the body, clothing and surroundings. These images may be accompanied by memories. Alternatively, you may receive only the memories of this past life, but no images in the mirror. This is fine, you are receiving the information you need. Maintain your trance and let yourself float while continuing to gaze into the mirror. Let any memories come to you. Make the intention to remember all the information and make notes after returning from your trance.

When you have completed your journey and received all information that is available to you, bring yourself out of trance by allowing your breathing to return to normal. Move fingers and toes, allow the rest of the body to come back to awareness. Blow out the candle, turn on the lights and make any notes you wish to. Ground and center yourself, have something to eat and cleanse your space.
