Are You Suffering from PAST LIFE Traumatic Stress Disorder?

Most of us know that unhealed emotional trauma can result in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and many of us have even experienced it. But, did you know that we can also carry unhealed emotional trauma from past lives? In fact, there’s a direct link between past life trauma and present-day fears, phobias and panic attacks. If you’re experiencing any of these conditions, you could be suffering from Past Life Traumatic Stress Disorder!

Maybe you’re wondering, how can you carry unhealed emotional trauma from one life to the next?

Although you may live many lives and incarnate as very different characters, your soul remains with you from life to life, and even though you may not remember a thing, your soul maintains the memories from all lifetimes and keeps track of “unfinished business.” So, each time you reincarnate, you take it all with you, and this means that if you die with unhealed emotional wounds in one lifetime, you’re born with the same unhealed emotional wounds in another.

Past Life Trauma – Current Day Issues!

Most of us have no memories of traumatic events that occurred in other lifetimes. Nonetheless, when we carry unhealed past life trauma into our present life, it often manifests as some type of distressing issue that is somehow related to the original event.

When past life trauma surfaces through current life issues, it often triggers Past Life Traumatic Stress Disorder, and, as a result, we might experience irrational fears, anxiety, phobias or panic attacks.

Here are some examples of how Past Life Traumatic Stress Disorder shows up:

  • If you were ever severely punished for not following the rules in a past life, you may have an irrational fear of authority.
  • If you were ever rejected or abandoned in a past life, you may have an irrational fear of being different or not fitting in.
  • If you were ever enslaved or imprisoned in a past life, you may have an irrational fear of losing freedom.
  • If you were ever excommunicated for voicing your beliefs or taking a stand in a past life, you could have a fear of being seen or heard (by the way, this is often the cause of public speaking phobias).

Furthermore, when the same type of trauma is experienced in more than one lifetime, past life scars often become amplified, and, subsequently, with each repetitive experience, the symptoms of Past Life Traumatic Stress Disorder intensify.

Also, keep in mind that irrational fears and phobias can include basically anything associated with trauma – even as simple as the fear of pencils or shoelaces.

Unfortunately, until we understand the cause of our irrational reactions, we have no control over the triggers.

Traumatic Death

Oftentimes, Past Life Traumatic Stress Disorder is the result of a traumatic death. For instance, one of my friends had panic attacks whenever someone touched his neck or he had to wear a necktie. Not surprisingly, he often had “flashbacks” of being strangled to death in a past life.

Here are some more examples of how a traumatic death can result in present day fear:  

  • If you ever died by drowning, you could have an irrational fear of water.
  • If you ever fell to your death, you could have an irrational fear of heights.
  • If you ever perished in a burning building, you could have an irrational fear of fire.
  • If you were ever fatally trapped, you could have an irrational fear of being confined (claustrophobia).
  • If you were ever killed by a ferocious animal or deadly insect, you could have an irrational fear of certain animals or insects.
  • If you were ever accused of being a witch or burned at the stake for possessing psychic powers, you could have an irrational fear of sharing your gifts.

Frozen to Death

For most of my life, I had an irrational fear of being cold, and, needless to say, this made long, winter months quite unbearable. Honestly, whenever I was cold, I would instantly go into mild shock, and while I couldn’t think clearly, I felt like I was going to die.

Then, one brisk autumn evening, I got terribly lost while hiking through the wilderness alone. As the sun began to set and I was beginning to feel very cold, that familiar panic started to takeover. But this time, something different happened. Suddenly, I experienced myself as a tribal warrior who lived in another era. Evidently, I just lost a major battle, and while I was fatally injured and all alone, I was left to die in the frozen wilderness.

After remembering this slow and brutal death, I finally understood my irrational fear of the cold — and why I associated it with death. Believe it or not, after I recalled this memory, the fear of being cold completely disappeared, and, in fact, winter became my favorite season!

The Purpose of Re-enacting Past Life Wounds

Let’s be clear; whenever past life trauma manifests as current day issues, it is never due to punishment nor karma. Instead, past life trauma is carried from life to life in order to support our human survival and spiritual evolution.

You see, in response to past life wounds, we develop survival mechanisms, such as specific fears, anxieties and phobias, and due to these protective mechanisms, we automatically stay away from potential risks that could result in similar traumas.

Additionally, when emotional wounds are healed during a human incarnation, we master certain virtues that our souls intended to attain – and this is why we experience emotional wounds in the first place.

In a nutshell, while past life trauma is carried from life to life in order to protect us from similar threats, it also gives us the opportunity to reap intended virtues as we heal.

Repeat, Repeat… Heal!

While past life fears keep us from partaking in risky behaviors and also provide opportunities to attain virtues, they also prevent us from living our lives, fulfilling our dreams, and reaching our full potential.

Furthermore, even though details may change from life to life, until we heal our emotional wounds, we could repeat the same type of issues over and over again.

Although free will allows us to ignore our wounds indefinitely, if we don’t properly address the cause, these issues inevitably escalate in frequency and intensity, and, at some point, and in some lifetime, they likely result in a personal crisis that cannot be ignored. Eventually, when emotional pain reaches a personal breaking point and familiar coping strategies no longer provide relief, we inevitably seek healing.

However, keep in mind that you don’t need to reach a breaking point in order to heal and you don’t need to repeat the same issues lifetime after lifetime.

Simultaneous Lifetimes

Before we continue, I’d like to acknowledge that the term “past life” could be very misleading. You see, according to quantum physics, all moments of time occur simultaneously, and, if this is true, it means that we are actually living parallel lives. Although we are only aware of this “current” life, who knows what we experience when we’re asleep or when we’re blinking in and out of reality countless times a minute.

Nonetheless, this concept doesn’t change a thing, and, in fact, when it comes to healing, there’s no time like the present!

So, how do we heal past life trauma?

Well, some people choose to heal past life trauma through past life regressions, and this means that under hypnosis they “go back” and remember one or more past lives where they experienced a particular trauma. Although this may sound somewhat “woo woo,” I personally guided past life regressions for many years and the results were often astounding.

Sometimes, just remembering past life trauma is enough to heal it, (for example, my fear of the cold), but, more often than not, healing is a process that must be actively embraced. Therefore, if you want to heal past life trauma through a past life regression, remembering your past lives is just the beginning. This is why it’s important to find a reputable past life regression therapist who knows how to work through multiple life traumas.

Present Life Healing

Even though it might be interesting to remember who you were or what you experienced in one or more past lives, there’s actually no need to do so. In fact, you don’t need to remember past life trauma in order to heal past life wounds. Since the same issues repeat from one life to the next, and all lifetimes are interconnected through your soul, when an emotional wound is healed in any lifetime that same emotional wound is simultaneously healed in all incarnations.

Therefore, by healing emotional wounds as they surface in your current reality, you inevitably heal those same wounds in all lifetimes!

So, exactly how do we heal emotional wounds?

Well, before we can heal an emotional wound, not only must we identify it, we must also address the real cause. Although we tend to confuse emotional wounds with precipitating traumatic events, emotional wounds are not caused by traumatic experiences!

Regardless of details or timelines, emotional wounds are caused by emotional reactions (how we react to trauma). For instance, if we react to trauma by adopting disempowering beliefs or abandoning ourselves, we self-inflict emotional wounds. Although few can argue that emotional wounds appear incredibly real, if it were not for emotional pain, it would be easy to see that all emotional wounds are based on disempowering beliefs and/or self-abandonment.

Since there’s no quick fix or easy escape, emotional wounds remain with us until we release disempowering beliefs and we stop abandoning ourselves.

By healing these two pivotal components during this lifetime, you inevitably heal all lifetimes!

You’re Still Here!

Although you may have tragically died in a past life, the fact that you’re reading this now clearly demonstrates that you really didn’t die – did you?

So, despite one or more traumatic deaths, the Real You survived! If this doesn’t prove that you’re a powerful and eternal being, I don’t know what does?

However, if you still need more proof, please consider that your nighttime dreams might also reflect this truth. For instance, if you’ve ever been harmed or killed in a dream, you know that when you wake-up in the morning, you’re perfectly fine. Well, believe it or not, life operates in much the same way.

In fact, since we are all “willing dreamers” in the dream of life, every one of us withstands an array of challenges, triumphs and adventures throughout many lifetimes. Yet, no matter how realistic the dream called “life” may be, when we awaken in the afterlife, we are completely unharmed, no worse for wear, and immensely better for the experience.

So, rest assured, not only is your survival guaranteed, the ultimate destination ensures a successful outcome!

Just like light illuminates darkness, this truth can heal you and set you free!

In grace & gratitude,

The Benefits of Grass Fed Products

When you choose to eat grass-fed animal products, you are making a lifestyle choice that is better for your mind and body, and for the animal population. Grass-feeding and pasture-raising allow us to feel closer to the foods we eat and their natural environment.

We generally choose to consume pasture-raised animal products, such as beef and dairy, for two main reasons. The first is ethical, as grass feeding increases the quality of life of the animals. The second is health-related, as consuming healthier animals is better for our bodies.

Grass feeding refers to allowing cattle and herd animals to eat from natural grasses in pastures, as opposed to eating processed feed and grains in feedlotsIt should be especially noted that grass-fed products can provide nutritional benefits for the people who consume them. For example, some grass-fed animal products contain fatty acids and antioxidants which are particularly beneficial for heart health.

Grain fed cows just don’t look as happy as their grass-fed counterparts.

Grass feeding is not a new trend. It marks a reversion to the original management of animal diets. All cattle were pasture-raised before the increasing demand of the meat and dairy industries incentivized industrialized production and the use of feedlots.

However, for all the benefits of grass feeding, there are a few issues worth mentioning in regards to the production of grass-fed products.

– The first is that reputable 100 percent grass-fed meat and dairy products can be very hard to source through national chains. People will most likely need to purchase them from local farms, butchers, or markets that carry local agricultural products.

– The second is that grass-fed animals prove to be no better for the environment than the rest of the meat industry, raising questions about sustainability.

Save Internet Neutrality #BreaktheInternet

Major websites and social media platforms are teaming up for an “epic” online demonstration to show what the web would look like without net neutrality.

In addition to making their voices heard in the streets, net neutrality defenders have planned a massive online demonstration this week ahead of the FCC’s scheduled vote on chairman Ajit Pai’s deeply unpopular plan to kill the open internet, which critics have denounced as “naked corporatism.”

Slated to begin TODAY—and continue through to the scheduled vote by the Republican-controlled FCC on Thursday—the “Break the Internet” protest is aimed at showing “the world what the web will look like without net neutrality.”

The demonstrations will vary widely, depending on the platform. “Facebook and LinkedIn users will ‘break’ their profiles by changing their relationship status to ‘Married’ (to net neutrality) or adding a new ‘job’ of ‘Defending Net Neutrality,’” Fight for the Future noted in a press release on Monday. “Websites and apps will participate by doing something to ‘break’ their platform and encourage their users to contact Congress.”

Many major websites have been working in conjunction with activists to drive calls to Congress since the day Pai unveiled his plan to eliminate net neutrality rules just before Thanksgiving. According to Battle for the Net, over 833,000 calls have been made since November 21.

Last week, internet users flooded the front page of Reddit with posts shaming their representatives for selling out to the telecom industry—and applauding those who have stood firm in their support for net neutrality.

More of the same is expected today, as websites large and small will use their platforms to mobilize further opposition to Pai’s attack on net neutrality with a variety of tools—from simple banners warning that the “FCC is about to vote to kill net neutrality” to video bumpers demonstrating “the kind of power that giant cable companies will have over us if we let the FCC end net neutrality rules.”

Individual supporters of net neutrality have also been encouraged to participate by flooding congressional phone lines and using their platforms on Facebook, Twitter, and sites to raise alarm about the devastating consequences Pai’s proposals will have on the web.

Using the hashtag #BreaktheInternet, many have taken to Twitter to promote the upcoming demonstration and encourage others to take part.

5 Meal Prep Diet Mistakes You Might Be Making

Whether you want to lose weight or save money on snacks and meals out, the meal prep diet is becoming an increasingly popular choice for many people.

While some people are put off by the time and effort required, it’s one of the most reliable methods of having a cost-effective healthy diet from Monday to Friday.

And yet, many people make mistakes when they first switch to the meal prep diet. They find that they are not satisfied with what they’re eating, or that they’re not reaping the benefits that the meal prep diet promised.

Keep reading to find out about the most common mistakes people make. If you know these 5 mistakes you might be making with your meal prep diet, you can avoid them in the future. Let’s take a look.

1. Prepping Too Much or Too Little

It’s not easy to estimate how much or how little you need for each meal. There’s always the possibility that you prep either too much or too little.

The danger of making too much is that you either eat more than you need or you throw away the rest.

If you’re eating more than you need then you’re not being healthy. And if you don’t eat the food you prepared, then it’s costly and wasteful.

On the other hand, if you’re not prepping enough for to last you the entire week, you’ll run out by Wednesday. Then you’ll be back to expensive take-outs and salty snacks to supplement your diet.

When you first start the meal prep diet, you find that it can be difficult to know how much food you require per meal. But don’t continue to prep random amounts of food with thinking carefully about the right quantity.

Once you have been prepping food for a while, you will know how much you need to last you until Friday. By then, you can start to measure out the right amounts.

And if you occasionally go over the amount you need for the week, you can always put meals in the fridge or freezer. Most food keeps up to a week. Grains last three months while fruits and vegetables can last as a long as a year in the freezer.

It may take more time to get the right amount of food for the week, but it’s surely worthwhile in the end.

2. Prep Food You Want to Eat

When starting the meal prep diet you might try to experiment with some super healthy foods. We’ve all been there.

You persuade yourself that you’re going to eat it, lose weight and enjoy it too. And then, in the moment of truth, you can’t manage to eat that fennel and broccoli salad. And instead, you opt to purchase an expensive fried chicken sandwich from the shop down the street.

This is a costly and wasteful habit.

Although it’s good to eat healthily, don’t make yourself eat something you hate just because it’s good for you. Especially if you don’t end up eating it at all anyway.

Instead, pack your meals with healthy and delicious ingredients that you like to eat so that you can’t wait to dig into your lunch.

3. Maintain a Balanced Diet

The meal prep diet can really help you to maintain a balanced diet. That means a healthy mix of protein, complex carbohydrates, healthy fat, and vegetables.

If you don’t fill your meals with the right balance of carbohydrates and protein, you may experience all kinds of side-effects from fatigue to weight gain.

You may also consider tweaking your diet to achieve your goals. For example, to increase muscle or lose weight consider including a higher portion of protein into your meals.

The best way to ensure you have the balanced diet is to prepare all of your ingredients at the same time. If you still need to roast a chicken breast to make up your balanced diet, then you may be inclined to skip it.

4. Mix Up Your Ingredients

Coming up with creative, interesting and delicious meals to eat every day can be challenging. However, eating the same thing every day can be very boring as well. A salad of lettuce, tomato, and cucumber gets dull after a while.

You can make your meals more interesting by planning ahead. For instance, when you’re prepping your vegetables for the week, don’t just prep carrots and peas for every day. Cook a variety of vegetables and place them in separate containers to mix up your meals throughout the week.

5. Get a Freezer and Containers for Your Meal Prep Diet

If you are going to take the meal prep diet seriously then there are two things that are essential – a freezer and some containers.

The first is a wide range of containers to store your meals. If you only have a few containers to store meals, you are limiting the amount you can prepare at any one time.

They need to be the right size as well. If they are too large, you’ll be tempted to eat more than you need and gain weight. One method to avoid this is to buy containers with specific measurements so you don’t overfill your meals.

You need quality containers with good seals to prevent your food from going stale. This may depend on lifestyle as well. For instance, if you have a long commute to work, consider purchasing a cooler that keeps your food chilled on the way to work.

The second essential item is a large freezer for storing your meals. A freezer allows you to prep a lot more food in advance. Plus, it keeps many perishable foods, such as chicken, fresh for much longer periods of time.

Last Word

Whether you’re prepping to lose weight, or simply want to save money – don’t be disheartened. The meal prep diet may take some getting used to, but it’s worthwhile in the end. Avoid these mistakes by following our advice and your new diet won’t let you down.
