How to Know How Many Past Lives You’ve Had
Quick announcement! As you may have noticed, I’m giving away a free vision poster to a new subscriber at the end of the month. Current subscribers – you’ve got a chance to win one as well! Just make sure you join my Facebook discussion group this week. If you’ve had questions or topics you’ve been wanting to get some opinions on, now’s your change.

This is a private group. None of your activity in it will show up in your newsfeed, so no friends or family will see anything you discuss unless they are also members of the group.
Question from a reader:
Interesting question to ask. Allow me to bend your mind a little bit…
“I wanted to know if I had past lives and if so how many?”
You want to know if you have past lives and if so, how many. Having a life that occurs in the past assumes a certain linearity in the flow of time itself and it assumes that your lives happen in a linear, chronological order and it assumes that there is a beginning to this time and that there is an end to this time.
All of those assumptions hinge on the existence of time, but, as I’ve covered a few times before – time does not exist. It’s an illusion.
If you click that link, it will take you to one of my older blog posts explaining why and even link you to a video by theoretical physicist (and my nerd crush) Brian Greene explaining the science behind it.
So what are the implications of that on the concept of incarnation? Effectively what it means is that all of your lives – past, present and future – actually exist in the “now.” They all exist simultaneously, and instead of thinking of them in terms of where they are in “time” (past/present/future), you could instead think of them in terms of where they are in time/space.
I wrote another post giving a visual example of what simultaneous lives looks like that you can read here.
When you take these things into account, the question of “Have I had a past life and if so, how many?” becomes null and void. Thinking about it in those linear terms may make it easier to grasp, but it also puts a lot of limitations on your expectations about what your soul is capable of.
Another great post I would refer my readers to, after checking out the two linked above, is this one about spirit communication and reincarnation.
Hope this was helpful. If it made your brain hurt, then that’s a good thing – it means we’re stretching your mind. 😉
