Uncovering "Hidden" Talents Developed in Past Lifetimes

Background: Most people have developed talents and skills in past lives that could be very useful to them in their life now. Some of these past life abilities are quite apparent, having served as the foundation of present life knowledge. Others are lying deep within the recesses of the unconscious mind like treasures just waiting to be dusted off and put back into use. Right now, there could be a library of thousands of "books" of past life wisdom inside you… and you could open them if only you knew how to open the book and turn the pages.

Goal: This exercise will help to open the "Library of Wisdom" you have written through the vast array of your experiences in many past lifetimes. Once it is open, you will have access to the books on your past life shelves and can start using the valuable information that they contain immediately. Since you have already gained the wisdom, you do not need to "re-learn" it, all you need to do is reconnect with it.


To uncover past life talents and skills, here is what must happen first:

1> You must be honest with yourself and answer this question: "Do you really want to discover the talents, skills, and abilities that you cultivated in past live(s)?" Only clarity of intention built on a foundation of personal integrity is the key that will unlock the door to receiving past life wisdom.

2> Ask and you shall receive. You are a Divine spiritual being, a spark of God come to Earth to have a human experience. Inside yourself, you have and know everything you need to.

3> Listen and be open to what you will learn. If you are doing what you love and are loving what you do, then there is nothing more for you to do. Enjoy and do not waste another moment fixing what is not broken. If you are not doing work you love, then be open to the help that is about to be given to you.

4> Being comfortable is the key. You can lie down (recommended) or sit up. If you opt to sit up, you must be supported and feel fully relaxed and comfortable. 5> Do this exercise in a peaceful place where you will be completely quiet and undisturbed for the entire session. This entire exercise should last for NO longer than 15 minutes. Set an alarm to snap you out of it should the session run longer.

How to Do This Exercise:

1> Before you start, ask yourself: "Why have I chosen to limit myself to having read part of just one book (the present life) when full library of all my wisdom (from numerous past lives) is available to me?" If this question makes you at all uncomfortable, then you should put off doing this exercise until you can be comfortable with getting the answers. For you might have been more successful in past lives than you are now. If so, you might have chosen to block your access to the full range of your talents in this life for a "good reason".

Blocks may surround the talent or skill preventing you from using it now because:

* In a past life you misused the skill and you feel that you may be tempted to do so again. * Your use of the talent might have resulted in your death or in that of a loved one in past lives. * The past life talent may be too strongly linked with negative feelings like fear, guilt, or sorrow. * Reconnecting with the past life talent may bring up present life issues you are not ready to face. * Reconnecting with the past life talent may divert you from developing new talents now. * Development of the past life talent might divert you from more important present life goals. * Not reconnecting with your past life talent might be part of your life contract.

2> Take some deep, refreshing breaths until you are totally comfortable and relaxed in whatever position you have chosen (it should take you no more than 3 minutes to get comfortable).

3> Close your eyes and envision a large mirror in the screen of your mind. Imagine yourself walking toward the mirror. You are completely alone: all you see is yourself and the magic mirror.

4> Look into the mirror and stretch out your arms in front you, both hands open, and palms facing up. See the mirror turning from solid glass into a clear, liquid pool. This liquid will not spill onto the floor because it is held in place by a "force field". Place the palms of both hands on the liquid and watch it shimmer and glow in response to your touch. Hold your hands there for a moment as you connect with the universal life stream through which all knowledge, wisdom, and goodness flows.

5> As you are holding your hands in place against the magic mirror, declare to the universe: "I now wish to reclaim whatever talents, skills, or abilities from past lives that would best serve the unfoldment of my life path today. I am open to rapidly receiving this knowledge and having it effortlessly incorporated into my conscious awareness. I accept whatever lessons or understandings that are necessary for this transformation to occur."

6> From the mirror, a pair of universal hands will emerge and put something representative of your past life talents into your hands. Whatever it is that you receive, it will be a symbol - meaningful to you - of a talent, skill, or ability that you mastered in past live(s) and can have again in your life today.

For example, if you have talents for writing, the universe might hand you a quill pen. Or if you had skills as a musician, you might receive a small replica of the instrument that you have mastered. Healers might receive a bottle of medicine. Soldiers might get a sword. Painters might receive a brush, sculptors a small statue, and so on.

7> If you do not understand what you are seeing, then ask your Higher Self, your guides, and other servants of the universe to clarify what you are seeing. Keep asking for more detail on what you are being shown to you until you do understand.

8> Now you have a decision to make: whether you want to accept the past life gift and the present life responsibility that this acceptance carries with it. If you do not want to accept the gift, then give the object back to the universal hands. If you do want the gift, raise the gift up to your heart. See the gift folding itself into your heart until it has fully integrated into your being. You will know that the process is complete when the universal hands disappear back into the mirror and it changes from the shimmering liquid back to the original solid glass of the magic mirror.

9> Declare to the universe: "I now gratefully receive my special talents, skills, or abilities from past lives. I dedicate myself to using these gifts for the highest good of myself and others. I accept the lessons and responsibilities that these gifts will bring into my present life going forward." It will take time but you will begin to reconnect with your past life talents in the weeks to come. They will come to you without you having to put forth any effort except that of being receptive to this "unlearned knowledge." As long as you use these gifts for the empowerment of yourself and others, they will never leave you.

Example: The expression "live by the sword, die by the sword" is truer than anyone could imagine. I brought so many wounds from past military lives into this one that I had no choice but to resolve them. In the painful process of healing my body, I began to spontaneously channel past lives for myself and others.

To the outside world, my acquisition of these abilities seemed to happen overnight. The truth was, once I had cleared my body of past life problems, the abilities I had cultivated during many past lives "spontaneously" emerged. Yet there was nothing spontaneous about it. I now know I have been a past life seer in at least seven incarnations. And as I unfold into my own healing process, I continue to reconnect with more talents, skills, and abilities that I developed in past lives.

Now you can too if you have patience with this exercise.
