A recent article in the National Post outlined a long-term study which found health in our later years linked to the level of education of the individual. I certainly would agree, for those better educated are more likely to know how to care for their health. But, I would add another factor to the equation and that is the influence of our “inheritance.”
Past Lives and Karma
I have put the word in quotes for what I am referring to is not our genetics but that which we bring into this life from our previous lifetimes. Past life trauma can affect any aspect of our lives and this most definitely includes out physical and mental health.
I believe we all come into this life with an agenda — one which is designed to give us certain experiences in order for us to accept particular qualities, to work out relationships, to gain specific knowledge or expertise, to become more loving and understanding of our fellow human beings.
We come into this life to clear “karmic” patterns which we may have repeated in other lifetimes and been unable to release. These patterns often result in dis-ease of the physical body or a particular organ or part of the body. If the problem arises, not from our life-style or lack of education, but from past-life patterns, it then needs to be dealt with not only on the physical level, but on an energetic level in order to be completely healed.
These often very stubborn patterns are held in place by the emotions or deep feelings we have taken on in those previous lives and which we bring forward into this life. How does one release these locked-in emotions?
We can live out our life experiencing our pains and ailments until we may finally come to accept the lesson. A more efficient way might be to identify the past-life experiences that underlie the problem, either through remembering, regression techniques or with an akashic reader and with that knowledge make more conscious efforts to change the pattern. Emotions are energy and yet another way to deal with their release is with some kind of energy healing.
Root Causes of Problems
My personal belief, based on my experience with various alternative healing techniques, is that:
- The underlying cause of any disease or physical problem must be dealt with in order to completely heal.
- All physical problems are caused by an underlying problem at a higher energy level.
- Most underlying problems can be traced to a past-life experiences of trauma.
The emotional, mental or spiritual level is where the origin of the problem resides. The physical symptoms are merely the manifestation at our slowest vibratory level.
Most of our past-life trauma is held in the body by emotions experienced at the time of the trauma. If the cause is at the mental level, it will be a belief held in place by the emotions experienced at the time of the trauma. If it is a spiritual problem, that pattern is held in place by the emotions accompanying a trauma or negative experience connected with it.
By addressing its root cause from our past-life experience, physical disease or discomfort, no matter how stubborn, can be positively influenced or eliminated.
I was born with noticable asymmetrical issues on my face (jawline/lips) can this be a cause of a past life trauma? I try practicing self acceptance but it’s very difficult at times and causes me a rush of anxiety in any social situation. I need help getting to the root of the problem and addressing this problem that has limited myself from being my best self and have confidence. This article is amazing and I would like to understand more about it.

I LOVE this article! I actually do past-life healing just for the reasons you mentioned! I have the ability to travel to the life of trauma and bring closure/love/light to that lifetime so healing can begin in this one.
