A Past Life Son Comes Back as a Current Life Lover

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Eva, who says I met the love of her life four years ago. We were together for two months and then he told me he wasn’t sure he could be in a romantic relationship with me. Eva was devastated. After waiting five months for something to change she decided to marry someone else.

The Council says in a past life in early London, Eva was married to a man she didn’t love and they had a son. When their son was twelve the father moved away for good and took the son with him. The soul of this son who wanted to stay with you in this past life has returned to you in your current life as the man you fell in love with four years ago.

(You may want to pay a little closer attention than is ordinarily necessary in our posts to the relationship details between Eve and her lover, Eva and her husband, past live Eva as a mother, and Eva’s current life lover as her past life son. It may be a little confusing.)

Unconscious memories of the mother-son relationship during the life in London have stayed with this man and led to his developing uncomfortable feelings about being your lover. This man didn’t plan to come into your life as your lover. He wanted to come back to continue the relationship from the life in London as your son, or be someone you’d take care of. This is why he felt unable to remain your lover.

Eva says she wasn’t in love with the man she married, but she felt a deep connection to him and felt they both needed to have a child together. The Council says you pre-planned in spirit to marry your husband and to have children together, but you met this man who was your child during the life in London and that threw things off the track you pre-planned.

One month after Eva married her husband she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl whose light and wisdom has made my husband and I better people. During this pregnancy I started talking again to this man I loved four years ago. After two years of phone calls and emails I had a dream of a little boy that called me Mum. The Council says this dream is a memory of her past life in London with her son.

Eva eventually started meeting with her lover which led to her getting pregnant by him after two months. (During this time she saw a picture of him as a child and found the similarity to the boy in her dream striking.) At first I told my husband I was pregnant with my lover’s baby and I intended to have the child. The father of the child told me he didn’t want me to have it because I was still married to my husband. It was the most difficult time in my life.

The Council says we always have the free will to choose the direction our life takes regardless of what we pre-planned in spirit, and in Eva and her lover’s case the pre-planning didn’t work out. The soul who was Eva’s child in London had pre-planned to come back to her in their current life as her child. Instead he came back as her lover.

Eva says she ultimately decided to abort the child because she didn’t want there to be any question of blackmailing the father’s love, her husband was against it, and she wasn’t able to financially support a second child. The Council says the spirit of the child that was aborted agreed to participate in this abortion and it was not the child in Eva’s dream.

Eva says she can’t put into words the feeling of loss she still suffers from aborting this child. The Council says the feeling of this loss is multiplied because of the memory of losing your son in your lifetime in London.

Eva says nevertheless she came back a stronger person. She works as a teacher and now feels unconditional love not only for her daughter, but for all children. Whenever I have the chance to hug my daughter or a child in my classroom I feel the trauma of my abortion lessen. The Council says this is also what she did in the past life in London. After losing your son you helped orphans and in soup kitchens. You’re trying to heal this past life and that’s why you’re so attracted to all children.

The Council advises Eva to reach out to other children. Also she can ask in her meditations and dreams to contact the soul she aborted if this is what she needs to heal. Think about what we’ve shared with you. Eventually as you gain full understanding you’ll be ready to move on from this experience.

The Council closes by saying Eva’s lover still has uncomfortable feelings about being in a romantic relationship with her even though he may have no understanding what these feelings are about. The Council hopes as Eva learns the nature of her past life relationship with her lover she’ll find a way to let go of her romantic attachment to him.

  4. After one year of no contact, this man who the council said used to be a son in a previous life, has came back. He is also a father now, but he claims he cannot be with his wife and he asked me for a second chance.
    It’s my common sense that is stopping me for getting again involved with him. I am not really happy in my marriage, but I haven’t taken the decision to take a divorce either.
    I am always trying to do the right thing for everyone. Has the council any advice on how I should move on?

    I would really like to help him with his little girl, I would really love to be a part of his life but at the same time I don’t want to hurt anybody. Looking forward to your answer, as always

  6. The key word in your answer is the word attachment. When you really l o v e somebody, you give him his freedom and you respect his point of view. And then you set yourself free as well and you find peace and happiness because you don’t expect, you don’t need and you don’t search for answers anymore in others.

    A mother always cares for her children, for all the children in the world and she wants them to be happy and complete and she wants them to grow and to be able to enjoy the miracle of life.

  7. Hi, Taylor. We’ll be happy to ask The Council for guidance on your binge eating disorder as soon as we have time and we’ll post an audio recording of the session as soon as it’s ready. Love and light, Bob & Cynthia

  8. I’ve been suffering from food addiction (aka binge eating disorder) since I was 15 years old and I am now 24 still under its spell. I understand about soul contracts and that for some crazy reason my soul chose to go through this experience, but it is putting me over the edge after 9 long years of dealing with it. I have undoubtedly grown a whole lot as a person since developing this disorder, but I just don’t understand why I still have it. I have done everything possible to try to cure it– I’ve gone to therapists, I’ve done acupuncture, I’ve tried homeopathic medicine, I’ve tried traditional medicine, I’ve gone to hypnotists, mediums, psychiatrists, recovery centers, and everything under the sun, but I am going broke trying to heal from this, and it has only gotten worst.

    I am a very happy, stable person. I have the best mom, great friends, a job I absolutely love, and I love who I am on the inside. However, this food addiction is creating a life of isolation for me and I hate it. Imagine, I go from being 120 lbs to 220 lbs in a matter of 3 months, consuming about 15,000 calories each day and I just can’t stop eating. This has caused me to hide from my friends, family, and stop dating because it’s horrifying to see the people I love seeing me thin one day, while just a few weeks later I’m a lot heavier. Aside from the physical aspect, people are nasty and judgmental– I’ve had many of my friends who have seen me that way make comments that I just try too look the other way on. I want to date and fall in love and get married on day and have children, but I absolutely do not see that happening until I resolve this. If I’m not comfortable with myself and my future, how could I possibly bring someone else into my life and into this world? Every therapist tells me there must be some hole I’m filling by stuffing my face with food. I promise you that there is no truth to that at all– my life would be absolutely incredible without this disorder and I have nothing but love for myself and this world.

    Also, by indulging in all of the junk food, I feel my health deteriorating and I am only 24! It terrifies me that I am going to make my self terminally ill with diabetes, a heart attack, and obesity if I continue down this path any longer. I’m not sure what my soul wanted and why it hasn’t received it yet, as I’ve already changed so much and transformed into a much better person than I was before my binge eating disorder. I just want my life back, I’m a lover and I want to start loving life again, not waking up hating it each day. I want to travel, take walks outside, fall in love and not think about what my next binge will be 24/7.

    I’m also a very holistic person and am a very health eater when I’m not binging. I don’t like traditional medicine or doctors, but holistic has not worked for me so now I’m left with no choice but to try another psychiatrist and go back on medicine, which scares me. I would hope the council could tell me if I’m doing the right thing going to this psychiatrist. I also hope the council would be able to give me some answers as to where to go from here and how to recover for good, as I am desperately lost. Thank you so much.

  10. When I was 16 years old a Russian boy started up with my sister up at a parade. The minute I saw him I knew his soul and I fell instantly madly in love with him. The boy was not Jewish. My father being a holocaust survivor broke us up. I got married but have loved this boy for the rest of my life.

    Four years ago, 45 years later, I contacted him and he was as amazing as he was at 16. I am still madly in love with him. I see his soul and he is my soulmate. I have nothing in common with my husband but I still love him, but nothing like the way I feel for this boy.

    The boy went into drugs when I left him and has become an alcoholic over the years. I feel responsible. I am helping him find his way back into the world. I want to cure him. My daughter was born with an eating addiction. I am trying to heal both of them. I feel the 3 of us were meant to be together – me, my daughter, and the love of my life.

    I have tried everything to help them both. I need the council of elders to release them both from their soul contract and show me how to heal the 2 loves of my life.

    Did I know him from a past life? The love I feel for him is indescribable.
