What will you ask Spirit?

Have My Past Lives Influenced My Suffering in My Current Life?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Mari, who asks which of her past lives has influenced her suffering in her current life?

The Council says you wished to have a life where you could learn from the suffering in a past life. The one big past life we see affecting your current life was when you were Polish and were put into Nazi concentration camps.

In these camps you saw much suffering. You tried to help the people, but you weren’t successful. In that particular lifetime you were overwhelmed and depressed from seeing the suffering around you. You didn’t want to continue living because you were concerned you were unable to help anyone else.

In your current life you wanted to bring in all the emotions you went through and all the suffering you saw in that past life in the concentration camps so you could understand, on a much smaller level, what these people felt. You wanted to have that feeling so you could try to heal yourself while you were going through what these people went through in that life. Because you were unable to help these people and you felt you didn’t grow and you weren’t supportive in that life, you chose to go through emotions where you’d have suffering and more control in the healing of it.

This is the experience you wanted to have in your current lifetime. You want to do everything in this lifetime to heal your depression and the physical infirmities and to have more understanding and compassion for yourself as you go through this.

In that past life you had lots of compassion and a lot of feeling for these people that were suffering. And in that life you always had the hope that maybe you’d get out of the camps and maybe these people would survive. You had hope. In your current life you want to find that hope again, but have it for yourself.

Now you’re experiencing the other side of the coin. On this level, when you go through all the things you go through, do you understand how it makes you feel? What can you do, in any small way, to change your experience for the better rather than stay in it? Do you grab onto the hope you had in that past life and brought with you into your current life? Are you using this hope? Are you learning about healing with your mind and with energy? What are you doing to help yourself? This is the experience you wanted.

Know that you have the ability to heal yourself. We ask you to find the hope and don’t give up. You didn’t give up in the past life in the concentration camps, which was a tremendous thing. In your current life, because you’re going through similar things, the hope you’re supposed to have is for you. Your challenge is to have confidence in yourself and know that you are the healer and you are the creator in your life. Don’t stay in a state of hopelessness. Do everything you can, even in the smallest ways, to begin helping yourself, and you will see things change for the better.

Begin with the chakra breathing. Read books on spirit. Read books on life after life and life between lives to get ideas about how you planned your life. Know that you set all of this up. In spirit you were sure you’d be able to change your depression. We want to tell you that you can. Try and feel the courage you had in the concentration camps. Try and feel the love you had for all those people and yourself in that lifetime, and how you willed yourself to get through it and help everyone else. You can change your current life. You can turn it around. It’s not hopeless. You didn’t plan for a hopeless life.

  1. Hi, Anonymous. We’ll be happy to ask The Council your questions when we have time and we’ll post an audio recording of their response as soon as it’s ready. Thanks for your feedback on your previous question on soulmates and twin flames. It’s much appreciated. We like the idea of you listening to the previous session to receive good energy. Thanks for your new question. Love and light, Bob & Cynthia

  2. I have recently started on my spiritual path. I’ve always had questions and spiritual doubts. I’ve mostly been around Christianity so I do not have much guidance outside of that religion. I have started to believe in reincarnation, spirit guides, and the idea that we have control over our lives, and not an outside being like a Christian God. It was triggered by the loss of my step mother, who was the first to ever tell me about astral travel, as she did it herself. Since learning about this spiritual path, I have experienced significant losses. I’ve asked the council a question before regarding soulmates and twin flames, and I found the answer very helpful. Often times I listen to your audios while at work just to receive the good energy. But recently I’ve been struggling with having the will to go on. My life seems to be in shambles around me. I keep losing people close to me. I keep wondering if I really do have this much control over my life, why would I pick this life with so much agony? My will to live is running low. So, if the council could provide me some clarification maybe on what I’m supposed to be learning, or how to make it through this.. it would be greatly, greatly appreciated. Are there past lives where I just didn’t learn my lesson so I’ve forced myself to go through it again? And is there any way spiritually that I can try to connect with the people I have lost recently (my mother, my step mother, my grandmother, and my baby sister) to try and get some closure, or can you show me in the direction of how to get the closure other ways? I apologize for such a long question, but as always your advice, guidance, and time is greatly appreciated. Thank you Bob, Cynthia, and the council. Sending love.
