I wonder how many people are out there having paranormal or metaphysical or unexplainable experiences and never tell anyone … afraid that others may think they are nuts. I am sure each and every person you have ever met has had something happen to or for them.
Like for example, I have a friend. She thinks she may have had a past life in the South (large dress included). She used to have dreams of it. However because of her religious background, she does not think there is such a thing as past lives.
Seems silly, right? Not really. We have been told repeatedly that there are rules to follow and consequences, the possibility of ostracization from friends and family for “different” beliefs, etc. This adds to our fear—greatly.
Even myself, I had a really strange fear that I would be harmed or killed for talking about metaphysical ideals. At that time, I never, ever talked about metaphysics online. I rarely brought it up with my friends or family. I just read about it and talked about it to a few friends that were already okay with it.
In August of 2011, I remembered a past life in which I taught metaphysics, but was eventually killed for teaching it.
I recognized that … wait a minute … I reach down and feel my body … Yep, I am still here.
I realized, OMG. What IS the worry?
I started my social media platform for my book, Life Is Just Another Class–One Soul’s Journey through Past Life Regression, in September 2011. Prior to that month, I had one rarely used Facebook account.
Here I am, FEARLESSLY, talking about the book I wrote on sixteen of my personal past lives. In addition, I talk about other metaphysical subject matter too.
Eventually, most of us will feel safe and secure in talking about seeing a ghost, having a premonition, remembering a past life, seeing auras, seeing an angel or even listening to intuition (it is not just voices in our heads; they are messages of guidance you know – just one way we can listen to our intuition).
Some people talk, write or even speak about metaphysics, but do not use their real name. I have found books, etc. that say in the first paragraph that it was written under a pen name. (I use my real name by the way in case you are wondering.)
Some people I know open other, alternate accounts with names like (and I am making this up for example – so if this is a name you use, sorry) “Metaphysical Being” or “Star Love Child” for this metaphysical part of their world.
We do whatever makes us comfortable. And, that is okay. I know how they feel. It is all about feeling safe and secure.
Who knows, maybe they died for it in a past life too.
If you have a fear and want to see if remembering a past life can help, try listening to a meditation to remember a past life right now.
You’ve written a lot of interesting and thought provoking blog posts, Karen, but for some reason this one just became one of my favorites. 🙂
