"The souls must reenter the absolute substance whence they have emerged. But to accomplish this, they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God." - Zohar - a foundational text for Kabbalistic thought -
A quick note of thanks to WDAF Fox 4 News Reporter Leslie Carto for including my perspective for a quick interview in connection with the new Fox show Past Life. - My own past life experiences are not extensive but they have served to remind me how much we continue to learn as we work through each physical incarnation.
A massage therapy session inadvertently triggered a very real past life memory of a traumatic death and exposed the residual baggage from that. My anger and a strong sense of outrage at the indignity of the experience created an energy block that I needed to work through to improve my ability to channel.
Past Life is a unique show. It can speak for itself. What I would like to offer here is another peek at a wonderful illustration of one incredible past life story that gives dramatic insight into what can happen when we don't fully undergo past life amnesia upon our return to the material plane and and how cathartic a release can be when connections are made to assist in jettisoning any residual baggage from a former life.

My guides have been very candid in stating the purpose of reincarnation as a tool for soul growth and learning, saying we come to experience life from all the different vantage points to understand what it is to be the victor and the victim, the male, female, adult, child, etc. We incarnate to learn to love life and living in every expression of the word - and those incarnations include existence non-human form.

Working as an intuitive, my own goal and focus as a channel is to help clients learn to identify the metaphysical presence in their life and tap their own innate intuitive abilities to awaken the divine within. Life is no less without a past life memory. However, the discovery of one is a nice affirmation that we are more than what we seem.
The point is to clear old emotional baggage, enhance the current life experience and increase spiritual awareness of the greater whole of which we are a part. I emphasize working with spirit guides and automatic writing or journaling and meditation as a starting point. I can be reached through the Wolford Clinic.
