Your personal family tree

Happiness, Spiritual

You do not have to relive old lessons and experiences — keep what does serve you and dump the rest.

by Sherry Anshara — 

Don’t you just love the idea of past lives? How many people do you think have claimed to be Cleopatra? In reality, Cleopatra did not look like Elizabeth Taylor, nor did Mark Antony or Julius Caesar resemble Rex Harrison and Richard Burton. There have only been so many kings, queens, pharaohs, emperors, empresses, princes and princesses throughout history. A person’s notions about such past lives or their emotional connections to them are mere fantasies.

It is curious, however, that so many people desire to have been rich and famous in the past — not that being rich and famous is necessarily a bad thing. But if you want to get real about your past lives, you need to understand that they were experiences you wrote in your time continuum. And while some of your past-life experiences were great, others were not so good.

The importance of your past lives is not how rich or poor you were, but how you use past information in this lifetime. If you were previously rich and famous, can you apply how you were then to what you are now? Were you generous or stingy? If you were impoverished then, how will you apply that experience now? Perhaps your current life is about helping the poor and impoverished — only you know this.

The question is, regardless of the circumstances of your past lives, how will you use that information to make your life better today? Dreaming, wishing or wanting to have been someone else in another time is a waste of your valuable energy. But if you apply what you learned from other incarnations to now, you will actually make your life better.

You do not have to relive old lessons and experiences — keep what does serve you and dump the rest. The only part of the past worth keeping and building upon are the experiences that have make your life better.

Creating a better life is a prime goal. To accept anything less is unproductive. Do not keep re-traumatizing yourself with past-life experiences that are no longer relevant. If harm came your way, remember that was then, and this is now. Whether you were rich, poor, famous or infamous, the only thing that really matters is how you are living your life today.

This is the lifetime to make connections with family and friends. This is the time to experience your life to its fullest. Your life now is what counts. Even in this lifetime, you cannot change what happened. The good news is that you can change your attitude about the past and move forward.

It is exciting to look through your personal family tree and recall many lifetime experiences; so take the time to check it out. Who knows what you might learn about yourself. Enjoy your trip down memory lane and remember to use your tree of knowledge to the fullest.
