Take the past life test to know: are your past lives talking to you?

What's a past life test? Well, in this case, it's a series of questions to help you identify past life information... from the clues in your everyday life.

Everyone we connect deeply with is a karmic relationship. Not all are soulmate relationships. But all of our relationships sit somewhere on (what I call) the 'soulmate continuum'.

Your soulmate will be another soul with whom you've shared many lifetimes. If you've encountered conflict, or obligation, it's been resolved and what's left over is love.

If you're experiencing challenges with your sweetie, or if your love life feels 'stuck' to you, one of the things you can to to help yourself move further along the soulmate continuum is uncover your past life loves. The past life test will help you become more open to receiving this information.

Where does past life information come from?

Does it surprise you to learn that piecing together your karma and past lives is a gradual process rather than one big information dump? What is karma?

While I wished that my past lives would come to me like a movie in technicolour, with a tidy convenient list of the actors involved, most often it comes in bits and pieces. That's why the first step is opening to the messages as they come, which is what the past life test will help you do.

Ways to get past life information

There are a number of ways you can get good past life information by paying for the skill of others. This approach also works with what you uncover yourself using the tips in the past life test.

A warning! If you work with others to uncover your past lives, beware of anyone who encourages your dependency on them, instills fear or guilt, judges you, or tells you what to do.

Though real self-honesty can be challenging and sometimes uncomfortable, overall, any experience working with someone should empowering for you. If it isn't, then run.

Karmic astrology

Karmic astrology, or past life astrology, is a lesser-known astrology that isn't predictive. Through your birth chart, you can get a very good idea of past lifetimes, past life love, and your soul's purpose in this life.

Why does understanding your life purpose matter? Because we tend to meet our soulmates when we're pursuing our life's purpose!

I've studied karmic astrology for a number of years, and have found it both empowering and enlightening.

Something else works well with the astrology... past life regression!

Past life regression

Esteemed psychiatrist Dr. Brian Weiss popularized past life regression in the mainstream with Oprah in the past few years, but it's been around for a while and working with a skilled past life therapist is a great way to get at your past lives.

Past life regression therapists

This article has an 11 point checklist on how to choose one, how to keep yourself safe, my personal experience and more...

Upon inquiring about past lives under hypnosis, you might get a vivid 'movie-recall' of being a person, with all of the facts complete. You may realize your previous name, dates, the town you lived in and the years you were alive.

Or (more likely) you will get only pieces. Clothing. A scene. The flash of a face. An emotional resonance. Even if you work with a skilled past life therapist, you still need to pass it through your own emotional filter. One way of doing this, is opening to the ideas in the past life test. It's kind of like self-directed past life regression. Free of charge!

In his books Only Love is Real: A Story of Soulmates Reunited, and Many Lives, Many Masters, Dr. Weiss condenses his patients' experiences. Often it takes months of work for the critical lifetimes to surface. In my case, I had some major insights in anticipation of the regression itself. So if you use this method, stay open. It'll be unique to you.


Someone with talent in dream analysis can unveil some interesting past life insights. I analyze dreams, and interpret them in conjunction with the information in my karmic astrology chart.

Dreams can also foreshadow a soulmate connection. I remember an Edgar Cayce record about a client who was appearing to their soulmate in a dream, before they connected at a deeper level.

Only Love is Real also talks about a dream one of Dr. Weiss' clients had that instructed him to 'hold her hand'. When he finally met his soulmate, they sat together on a plane. When turbulence came, he remembered and held her hand. Through this action, the connection was made.


Good psychics energetically sense spectrums of possibilities. I've gleaned fascinating past life relationship insights from intuitive readers. I've also met some real duds! So sure, use them, when it feels right... but with discretion.

Do not discount what you learn about yourself in the past life test, as your insights are just as valuable. A good psychic won't have ego about this. He or she will encourage you.

Curious to read about America's most documented psychic, and his take on past lives, Akashic Records, soulmates and reincarnation? What he has to say might surprise you...

If you're hiring a psychic, I'd recommend getting a good reference first. Also, careful not to become a psychic junkie!

Akashic records

Have you heard of Akashic Records? Akashic records are like an otherworldly computer recording collective human experiences, plus the karmic imprints of individual souls.

They also go by other names, too, like the Book of Life. With a good, reputable facilitator, we can access the Akashic Records to get information on our past lives.

Your everyday life

Finally! Here we are, at the core of what the past life test is all about.

Even if you work with others, it's still up to you to integrate the information. By far, the biggest 'ah-ha' rock me to the core insights have come from my own life.

The answers you seek require the ability to 'connect the dots' of your life in new ways. The more you read about karma and past lives, the more you'll be able to make these past life connections.

Check out these soulmate books and past life love stories:

  • Edgar Cayce on Soul Mates by Kevin J. Todeschi
  • Only Love is Real, about soulmates reunited, by Dr. Brian Weiss
  • Moondance - want the big picture on past life love, and have fun doing it? If you like intelligent page turners, check out this award-winner.

For me, I know my past life insights are right, when tears come. It's as if a truth deeper than me is welling up, whispering to me from previous times.

So open your heart, open your eyes, notice, trust. Ask for the right information, at the right time, to support your search for a soulmate.

Past life test

Is your soul talking to you about your past lives? More importantly, are you listening? These 25 questions help you find out...

Idea: start a journal to record your insights!

  1. Have you ever had a dream where you woke up, and it felt so real that it took you a while to 'come back' to your life?
  2. Do you have an interest or talent, that was very different from your family of origin?
  3. For the purpose of this past life test, have you attracted the same kind of partner again and again?
  4. Are you a collector? Why do you think you were you drawn to your particular passion?
  5. Have you ever felt 'dread' when you met someone, yet were compelled to get closer to them?
  6. Have you ever been irrationally scared to lose someone in an accident (for example), even when you don't have a logical reason to be scared?
  7. Have you ever done something completely out of character because of meeting someone?
  8. Have you ever watched a movie or TV show, and began to cry at a particular story line? What character did you relate to most?
  9. Have you ever been strongly drawn to a particular place, or a time in history?

  15. Have you ever had deep emotions about something or someone, without a reason?
  16. Have you ever had an experience that was so 'strange' that you couldn't explain it?
  17. Have you ever met someone, and been irresistibly drawn to them, a if there was something pulling you together?
  18. Have you ever been relaxed, when an image popped into your mind: a face you 'knew' but didn't recognize?

  20. Have you ever overheard a conversation that came at exactly the right time for you?
  21. Have you ever heard a 'voice' in your head say something that you had never considered before?
  22. Have you ever encountered the same story-theme again and again (say in movies or books), by coincidence?
  23. Have you ever experienced déjà vu?
  24. Have you ever had a natural talent for something that you had no training in?
  25. Have you ever had someone say particular words, that stood out? Then did you hear these words again (maybe from someone else)?
