Past LivesA vision or an awakening to your past lives can be helpful. Do we live more than one life? Yes.. 

Our spirit follows its soul destiny, part of the soul destiny is physical living. The concepts of afterlife can be greatly misunderstood.

People allude to the notion that our major existence, as a soul, is one or many lifetimes on Earth. Our lifetimes on Earth make up a small portion of the soul's total journey. With your physical incarnations making up about one seventh of your total soul destiny, it is small in comparison to the grand journey that your soul undergoes. However, it is a very important part of your overall destiny, possibly the most important.

Your nonphysical, immortal experiences are gained in the nonphysical universe where you existed before your first lifetime, in-between lifetimes and where you will continue to evolve after your last lifetime.

Then, how important is it to be aware of previous lifetimes on Earth? For some people it helps them and for others it doesn't help. Until you evolve into clarity where you will receive the past lifetimes accurately, it is not suggested to think about them.

Ask yourself if you are searching for past lives? Past lives are most usable to you when they come in naturally, as through intuition or vision in your sleep.

When you search for past lives, you may receive inaccurate information about them. You probably have heard about people thinking they were this person or that person throughout history. The truth is, many times people are not clear enough to receive their past lives, even when subjected to hypnosis or other intuitive processes.

Some spiritual seekers will justify their search for past lives because they feel by revealing them issues in this life can be resolved. This is rarely the case.

Most every issue in this life is a result of this life. There is the possibility that your soul experienced present issues in past lives, but to think you must search out past lives to heal current issues is not the case 99 percent of the time. It is vital to be present with this life.

Past lives, as well as dozens of other reasons people use to escape the moment, can indeed be futile in furthering one's present purpose. There are exceptions when past life memories will be necessary to help you. Usually when the memories come in naturally through sleep or intuition, they are necessary and useful in life.

The philosophy of life as described in the 'Bhagavad Gita' is unmatched. I'm sure you would have heard or read about it. If you get a chance, read the 'Bhagavad Gita As It Is'.
