Soul Mates, Karma & Reincarnation with Dr. Andrea Shakarian

Ready to learn about soul mates, karma, and reincarnation? Dr. Andrea Shakarian and I talk about her unique way of uncovering past lives in this week’s episode of the Breathe Love & Magic podcast.

Discovering Soul Mates and Past Lives

Dr. Andrea ShakarianDr. Andrea Shakarian is a chiropractor and certified hypnotherapist who has a keen interest and skill at uncovering past lives for her patients.

However, her method is rather unique. She uses her chiropractic skill of muscle testing to reveal and pinpoint the place and timing of a specific past life. How cool is that?

Since she was a young child, Andrea dabbled in the spirit world. Her family openly talked about having conversations with angels and spirits.

Dr. Brian Weiss Got Her Started

Years ago, she heard Dr. Brian Weiss talk about past lives on the Oprah show. That got her started. Then she spirits started communicating during her dreams and sometimes provided messages for to deliver to other people as well.

Andrea has always loved the idea of having a soul mate – it seems so romantic and this is how she got into learning about soul mates and twin flames.

She felt she could recognize people on a soul level. We often reincarnate with a group of people which is part of our “soul family”.

However, soul mates and past lives aren’t always romantic and twin flames are frequently the most difficult relationships going because you are working with a specific lesson.

You’ll learn a lot but it won’t be easy and there are times when this is not a lasting or healthy connection. The point might be about healing and ascending, rather than enjoyment, which pretty much sums up soul mates, karma, and reincarnation.

We Are All One

Dr. Shakarian has also studied Zen Buddhism and the concept that we are all one and she talks about how this factors into your relationships as well.

According to the Kabbalah, we are all one, and originally, we were sparks of light contained in one vessel that broke open and dispersed. Now we are trying to get back to the source.

Andrea did a reading for one client who had lost their romantic partner early in life and was devastated. The partner came through during mediumship to say that they’d be back again in this life as a walk-in.

That was a big surprise to Dr. Andrea, having never encountered that before, and she hesitated to convey that message. But she did. The spirit insisted her client would recognize their soul when it comes back.

I mentioned how this sounded a little bit like the movie Heaven Can Wait with Warren Beatty and Julie Christie which is one of my all-time favorites – an oldie but goodie!

Soul Mates, Karma, and Reincarnation

past life recallA couple came to Andrea struggling with a control issue and wanted help to understand where this was coming from. Through her muscle-testing method, Dr. Andrea discovered a past life in the ancient Mediterranean area.

One had been royalty and the other had been a servant, and they were having a forbidden love affair. Then there was betrayal and a murder attempt which was all very brutal. Bringing this to light was very healing for the couple.

Similarly, I did a reading for a woman who was having terrible fights with her husband who wanted to understand what was behind that.

I discovered she and her husband had been brothers in the Texas oil business back in the early 1900s. They fought like crazy after their father died because he had not created a proper succession plan.

Going back further, another life appeared where they were again brothers, but this time on opposite sides of the US Civil War. I explained, when you think about it, fighting in a marriage is not as drastic as that, so things between them seemed to be improving and we both laughed.

Past Life Work Is Not Always Pretty

Some people think looking at past lives is going to be a fun adventure and great story to tell. While that can be true, the real purpose is to access a higher perspective about the lessons you’re learning in this lifetime and how the past plays into that.

It’s usually not a romantic journey with castles and unicorns. However, there is a lot much to learn and it can be incredibly healing.

Common Themes in Past Lives

soul matesAndrea asked me what some common lessons are that I have noticed with soul mates, and past lives. We talked about:

  • Power struggles
  • Worthiness
  • Standing up for yourself
  • Taking care of yourself
  • Abandonment
  • Betrayal

Here’s the best thing about past life recall. Looking into your past with soul mates, karma, and reincarnation does offer amazing insights and can be very helpful when it comes to forgiveness.

If you see what you have done to others and the errors you’ve made, it can help you have compassion for that soul in this life for what they are doing wrong now. And also, compassion for yourself which can be HUGE. Keep in mind that you are witnessing your soul’s growth. That’s the point.

This doesn’t mean you have to stay together or put up with bad behavior or treatment. But these insights sometimes help you forgive which often can be the way to ascend the problems. Letting it go rather than holding on to hatred or your wounds, frees up your energy.

Akashic Records Readings

Andrea and I talked about doing formal Akashic Records readings about soul mates and past lives and how the structure is great when you start out. Now, we have both simplified the process and just get to it, without a lot of ritual. But it’s important that everyone do this work in the way that works best for them.

Past Lives Present Miracles

Denise LinnDenise Linn wrote this amazing book that I just read called Past Lives Present Miracles. (I love Denise who is a prolific author on many spiritual topics.) She says you can change the result of your past life right today.

The author said she had conducted massive workshops with 500-1,000 people and they would do this together with powerful results. I’m not sure how you can mess with time, but perhaps you are just changing the energetic residue.

The conversation covered many interesting facets of soul mates, karma and reincarnation, so if this is your thing, you’re going to love this episode.
