Through lots of practice and research. Meditation, tarot, numerology, hypnosis... Some people commit their whole lives to trying to find who they were.
We can't remember our past lives for a reason. In my opinion, they're not really worth getting into. It's not good to dwell on the past. We should try to better ourselves in this life.
Also, even if you do see something during meditation or something, you have no way of knowing whether that's an actual memory or something you made up. Loads of people claim to be a famous Greek philosopher, pharaoh, hero, whatever... Most people have lived hundreds, thousands of times before, so past life regression is a confusing maze that you have almost no hope of ever navigating.
Unless you've had profound memories from the age of 2 and onwards, I don't see much point in past life work. Focus on this life and raising your vibration and energy; to look back just stalls your progress.
Sudden interest in past life regression can be a sign that you are ungrounded. I suggest you get out in nature or do some grounding meditation. Work especially on your root chakra. Here is a simple and quick grounding meditation: https://youtu.be/jNQXpfbtORk
If you are really curious, though, you can look into karmic debt. You can find out what kind of karmic debt you have depending on your numerology; your date of birth, your name, etc. I wouldn't pursue it further than this though.
Sorry if this wasn't the answer you were looking for, this is just my opinion on past life regression. Hope this helped anyway :)
I agree with Ashen_Heart. I wanted to know too, what I was i my past life. I tried meditation, but all was confusing. Then, I started to see the world different, I mean, every obstacle in my life is because of my karmic debts. Since I begun to think it like this, my dreams and visions about my past lives begun to appear like flashes, and I kept a journal about them. I discovered, my obstacles now were nothing more than my previous lives karmic debts. But, at the first time, I was a bit shocked, and almost did the same mistakes, when I saw who I was. However, I tried to be calm and to reason, about the situation.
Listen, the meaning of "not remembering" is because if we remember who we were, is 100 percent secure we will do the same mistakes. But, with no memories, and in another roles, we can learn from our mistakes of the past, of course with the right "lessons" of the life
I honestly completely disagree with Ashen_Heart no offense. You can always remember. I have had small memories of my past life since I was an infant. Over the years they have gotten stronger. MY psychic abilities grew stronger as well. I am almost 16 and I have remembered every single detail from each of my lives. And the people most of you others on this site believe are impractical on this site. The ones who say that they werent human in their past lives. That they were pharoahs, faeries, or anything else but a normal human being.. Are the people that are right. I wasnt a human in my first past life and I told people what I was and they thought I was crazy. Im not. And you can always remember their past life.
And I remember on another account I had, revealed the truth about who I was in my first past life and hardly anyone believed me. I was removed from my Coven because my truth seemed "impractical". Nothing is impractical. I just want to say that this is a magick site and to "normal", closeminded people, we all are crazy or impractical. If people in my town heard that I practiced magick, theyd laugh and call me insane. You can absolutely remember your past life because those memories are still there deep inside your soul. Most of my memories came back to me this year and thats when I put all of them together, and everything I remembered from them my whole life. You can do it too.
I agree with Lucindiana. Past lives can be remembered very well. I remember them partially but I still remember them. Nowadays, that I have learned that magick is real, I understand that things that I have liked, pictured, the preferences that I had in my childhood were an expression of what I remembered from my past lives. They have helped me a lot to win over a lot of obstacles i this life
Yeah that was the reason I said "unless you've had profound memories from the age of 2" Lucindiana. Obviously it's much easier to conduct past life work when you have memories from an infant. And often those memories remain intactfor a reason, so we can learn from them. But, vast majority of people have no memories of any other lives and so, to go out and actively seek your past lives, to me, is pointless.
I think if the universe bestowed you with intact memories then there's an important reason for it, whatever that might be. If the memories have been lost to time and space, then there's a reason for it, the main reason being that there's no incentive to delve into the past, and therefore there would be no reason to retain those memories.
So, for people who remember from infancy, yeah I would explore further. For people who have no memories, I would go no further than karmic debt.
Just my opinion. I'm not trying to have a go at anyone, but I wanted to give more detail on my opinion in case any one thought that I was completely against past life regression. Answer is no, I'm not. It can be fun andinteresting but I don't see a reason for someone who has no memories from infancy to obsess over it.
Yes, I've tried doing some tarot spreads and meditation, but I haven't seen anything remarkable or worth exploring further. I've decided to focus on this life and being the best person I can. Each to their own, everyone is entitled to their own thoughts on this subject :)
Thank you Ashen Heart, I respect your opinion and you were very right when you talked about remembering as an infant. I have knew all my life and the memories were always there, they just grew stronger over the years especially now. I remember in each life I failed to fulfill this purpose. I know exactly what it is, but I cant fulfill it because if I did, I would be giving up on everything I have stood for and believed in. Now Im conflicted because in each life I am reborn my ability to feel others pain around me grows stronger. And there is this force that I can either control and embrace it or let it ruin me. Each one of my lives end the same way. I always get hurt in the end and everything good I have gained my whole life here is taken away. And its hard because I can see through everyone and I can feel their emotions however I cannot truly understand anyone here or adjust. I just want to go back to my first life. Lets just say my home was very far away and its not somewhere I can travel in a car or plane too. Its just so hard because I try to forget everything but I cant stop thinking about how im pretty much might be ruined for the rest of eternity. Im only 15 in this life and although Ive lived thousands of years before this, a part of me just wants to live a normal life as a normal human and forget.
