[Kathie89] Do birthmarks or scars or moles indicate a part of the body that was injured in a past life? What work could the individual do to reduce the effects of harm in past life experiences for the current life?
[Michael_Entity] It is valid that many fragments use a birthmark, scar, or mole as a “reminder” of past life injuries, but this is not a constant. Many times they are simply part of the dynamic of the current body. Detail is rarely considered to the extent to prevent “flaws.” There is nothing that is required of a fragment within a current life to prevent harm from a previous life. There may be trauma or Karma carried over, but this is not imposed. ALL interactions from past or future lives are invited in some way.
If a fragment were to live its life without any recognition of another life, it is in the astral interval that the past lives would be considered.
If conscious recognition of past lives is being brought into the current life, then the consideration would be in how to manage that memory and apply it practically. By that we mean seeking dialogue in dreams, working with an instructor, or simply “riding it out” to see its implications.
