Do you believe that it's possible to be holding vows and agreements from a past life? Do you even believe that you have had past lives?
I admit that I listen to channels. There are 3 or 4 that I completely believe in and according to them most of us have lived thousands and thousands of lives. Who knows who you have been and what you have done in those lives.
I know that this is one of those topics that may sound totally crazy, but it's worth considering. As I've said many times, take what feels true for you and leave the rest. All I can say is that this subject has come up over and over again in the past week or so and they say that you are always led to what you need to know.
In these conversations, they were talking about many of us being nuns, priests, shamans and monks, among other things, in previous lives. If that's true, then you most likely took many vows. Many of us took vows of poverty. You could have possibly taken a vow of silence, which means that you may now have a hard time speaking your truth. While checking into this further, someone else mentioned that if you were a Knight's Templar, you vowed to give all of your wealth to the Templar organization. Imagine the vows that you might have possibly taken in your numerous lifetimes?
I quickly used muscle testing (kinesiology) on this and sure enough I had a number of vows. One was a vow of poverty. Another was a vow of obedience. That could explain why I'm so terrified of breaking rules, yet very resentful of people telling me what to do.
I've mentioned that I use muscle testing often. If you don't know what that is I have information about it on my energy healing page or you can Google it. It's been proven to be very accurate. I was listening to Lee Carroll channel Kryon a few weeks ago. According to Kryon, muscle testing is totally accurate, because there is a part of you called the "innate", that knows everything. Your soul or higher self is still connected to the divine, so you do have all of the answers. You just aren't aware of it.
If there are areas in your life that just don't seem to improve, no matter what you do, there could be vows and agreements in place. You could also have more than one vow or agreement in each area.
You could always choose to pay big bucks for a past life regression or you can simply try muscle testing. I chose the muscle testing and immediately began with finances. I don't live in poverty, but it's definitely the one area that could use improvement. I asked if I had any vows and agreements related to money and finances. The answer was "yes". I asked if it was a vow of poverty. "Yes". I use The Emotion Code quite often, to clear negative emotions or energies that may be trapped in my body. With The Emotion Code you can clear things very easily with an everyday magnet. I asked if that works to clear vows and agreements and I got a "no". What do I do if the magnet won't work?
How do you clear them?
After a little more research, I actually opened up a whole new "can of worms". The Knight's Templar also took many other vows. If you were a Buddhist monk, there are a number of Bodhisattva vows of Mahayana Buddhism.
There were also vows such as, "I will always help the downtrodden". "I will always obey authority". I'm not Catholic, but do Catholic's take vows? How about marriage vows? Love, honor and obey. They don't all have to be from past lives. A vow is a vow.
After finding all kinds of long, complicated meditations, prayers to the Archangels and $150 remedies to get rid of them, I came across this:
You can change poverty to silence, obedience or any word that you choose. You could probably put in ALL vows and agreements to get rid of them all at once.
So, I said the above line for poverty and muscle tested again. I asked if I still had any vows, promises or agreements related to money and poverty. I got a "no". I continued with the others and finally got rid of all that I'm aware of.
Someone also mentioned that there can be something in all of this that will prevent you from charging for your services. Somewhere along the line you may have vowed to serve without being compensated. Now, in this lifetime it causes you to feel uncomfortable asking for money or uncomfortable about raising your rates.
And we wonder why life is so difficult. If we hold on to all of this stuff from lifetime to lifetime, it's no wonder we have the problems that we have. Not to mention that aliens or higher dimensional beings say Earth is the "Planet of Emotions". We have more emotions than any other species in the Universe.
Remember that all of this is stored in the subconscious mind and we have no idea.
