It can be extremely helpful to realize that past experiences that bring up regret are often part of our life lesson plan and are linked to healing past life issues and patterns.
Here are some examples: a relationship where you have been mistreated, perhaps in many lives by the same soul. The lesson is to say “no more” and to end the relationship. Or a string of opportunities that are not taken because of fear of failure: in this pattern the lesson is to learn to risk. Or the pattern of being so emotionally self-protected that intimate relationships are kept at arms length, because of a number of past lives where intimacy brought with it hurt and disappointment. The lesson is that clarity is a happier, healthier form of protection.
The examples are endless. And as my guides say, “It is never too late to learn.”
