Past Lives and Gender Identity
Let’s discuss gender identity and past lives. Have you ever thought that WHO you were in a past life might have effects on your present life? And, gender can play an important role in that.
We live in an extraordinary time. People talk about gender identity more than any time in our historical memory. Pronouns are shifting with people’s desire to be referred to as “they” or “them.” Many recognize that they don’t feel particularly one way or the other or feel differently in their physical body than they do mentally or emotionally.
We live in a wonderful culture where the freedom to self-identify in our own unique ways is becoming more prevalent.
Diversity of the Soul
Growing up, I always felt a little bit different. I inherently knew that I was female yet found a powerful masculine side within myself. When I started to do past life work, I realized how many lifetimes I’ve had as a man or being gay and the quality of my lifetimes being female.
After working with clients and doing past life work with others, I understand that the soul has been so many different things – not only different genders but different races and religions. The soul carries so much diversity. The older the soul, the more diversity it has experienced.
Your soul may find something that it likes. Perhaps it prefers to be a woman or a particular religion to practice. In fact, some souls reincarnate multiple times with a similar physical look. The longer you’ve been on Earth and the more incarnations you’ve had, the more identities you have experienced.
With this in mind, being one specific gender is not very realistic. Instead, every individual carries different aspects of the self that are masculine and others that are feminine.
Perhaps you’ve been a woman for many lifetimes and it has brought you joy. Then, you’re born into a new life as a man, which might be uncomfortable or be challenging to behave in a masculine way. The same goes for those who have experienced many lifetimes as a man. It’s not so easy to be feminine after repeatedly experiencing life as a man.
Seeing the Big Picture
We often have to learn what it’s like to exist in certain bodies, meaning we are constantly relearning what gender identity truly means. It becomes even more complex when you add in society’s expectations of gender within various cultures and different timeframes.
Understanding the fluidity of gender is a massive part of your soul identity and a significant part of your Higher Self. Gender is not necessarily just one thing. You may be born one way, but it’s okay to feel and be something else.
It is also crucial to learn to incorporate the different parts of your gender identity. For example, I know inherently that I’m female – I feel female and have grown very comfortable being a woman. I also use my masculine energy to prop up my work and push me forward, meaning I harness it and use it differently.
The goal is to bring pieces of identity together to be more fluid and comfortable with yourself on the inside. Society and the people in your life can’t dictate what you are supposed to do or be. Understanding how to negotiate Gender Identity in our world is likely one of the most personal experiences you’ll ever have. It can be difficult, so if you know someone struggling with it, be compassionate and empathetic with them.
Gender identity can be a hard struggle, and just because certain people don’t understand it doesn’t make it wrong. It can be wonderful and very enlightening.
