I have had people experience their past lives as animals- cat, hippopotamus, giraffe, and recently as a donkey.
By the way, donkeys (and horses also) are very social. They hurt when they feel lonely and uncared for, and carry forward those emotions to other lives.
My client, MT, said he was unable to satisfy his wife, Mona. They had 2 teenaged children. As a couple they had a fairly good understanding through the rough times they went through together. His family threw him out of the ancestral business; he struggled, went to court and finally got very little that barely made both ends meet. But he has a very dear friend Mahesh, who gave him space to start his own again. MT came to for a qhht session because said he was lacking in abundance.
In the beginning MT could not believe he could have four legs and tied to a post in a lush green pasture.
MT: There are 5 of us- 3 male and 2 female. I’m a male donkey.
L: Do you know any of them?
MT: Mona… that’s my wife, Mona…
He was shocked to be able to recognize her in that life. She was tied far from him.
MT: I’m tied closer to the male donkeys. Oh, my God, that’s my friend Mahesh tied next to me!
He started smiling. He said that female donkey (Mona) was interested in him.
L: How do you know?
MT: She flutters her eyelids and she emits an odor, which means that.
He was so excited to find her there in the farm right next to him. He couldn’t believe how wonderful he felt finding her like this. But all of a sudden he started crying.
L: What happened? Why are you crying?
MT: Mona and another donkey are leaving the farm. She’s gone and I will never see her again.
They never had a chance to be together. He went on sobbing, crying out her name, tears rolling down his cheeks. The donkeys were used for transport, to carry load on their backs. The owner sold two to some other people.
While this donkey was a little baby he lived at another place, never had anyone around. His mother would be gone the whole day and he was alone in the farm, jumping around here and there, waiting for her. He was sent to this farm when he was big enough to carry load on his back. He said it felt so darn limiting! When he grew older and aged, his back started to hurt- so much that he could no longer stand up. He was very lonely and sad. He was lying down mostly, due to depression and pain. He never experienced any physical contact with anyone, except when the owner’s wife came and gave him food and stroked his back. He yearned for that caressing and love. Sadly, one day he died in his sleep.
When I asked the SC why they showed him that life-
Higher Self/SC: Because he is still continuing that donkey’s life. His consciousness is that of a donkey.
L: Can you elaborate?
SC: MT wants to have enjoyment that he was unable to have in that donkey-life. Now he has been given a chance to do so. But his old programming of “lack” is still running. Look at his business; he has worked like a donkey still trying so hard to make both ends meet. Now that he as asked for abundance we will change his “programming” (his thinking and belief). It has started from now on. He will continue to receive some “program-packets” in his dreams and that will help.
L: Is this donkey-life just prior to life as MT?
SC: No, this was a long time ago. His soul has had many human incarnations after that. But the donkey’s life had to be balanced- the fulfillment he sought must be experienced. His current life is a chance to have all that his soul longed for in that life. We have healed the lack now.
