Sorry if this was answered a while ago but, I was wondering if there is some sort of technique or method to make recalling past lives easier? I’ve had a couple dreams in the past that I swear are past life experiences like I had one dream that I drown on a ship in some freezing cold water (which would explain my fear of dark water). But at the same time I’ve had a dream that doesn’t even really make sense, it felt exactly like my other past life dreams but couldn’t have taken place in our reality. In this dream I was a guard for some sort of other-being, it was humanoid but the only way I can describe it is phoenix-like. I died in the dream while protecting it, and I remember I had such a strong bond with this being. These dreams all happened a while ago and I’d like to know if there’s any way I can recall them or try to work with them to figure out what exactly they were.
Alot of past life work is from intuition, visions, dreams, what your interests are and especially meditation/astral work. There’s also a technique i remember writing about awhile ago about our interests. I wish i could find it but basically it’s about your strong interests in certain time periods and cultures relevant to ones past lives. For instance your favorite books, favorite tv shows, certain things you are drawn to, certain themes you particular enjoy, etc. books are good for this especially. For example some of mine are the victorian era, arthurian legend, fantasy worlds aka other dimensions, aliens and star systems i’ve been drawn to since i was a little girl, the 40s etc. Intuitively you are drawn to the cultures that you used to inhabit this is part of your higher self speaking out through you. I mean you have to wonder why do we develop certain interests for things or certain habits?
However if you don’t feel that that is strong enough you can always try to visit a past life regression therapist, hypnotherapy or you can even try to do a pathwalking past life meditation with yourself or someone else who is more trained.
Your confusing dreams could denote memories of your past lives, like for instance your fear of dark water could mean that maybe in your past you drowned or it could be also symbolic to your life in some way, drowning in a situation, feeling overly emotional about something etc. dreams are tricky business but what your intuition feels is usually what is always right.There are many methods to dream recall though, i highly recommend working with crystals.Amethyst is excellent or Celestite http://www.energy-healing-info.com/crystal-healing-dreams.html
