It can be enticing to consider or hear about who one might have been in a past life. Maybe someone important or someone who suffered greatly.
Considering who one might be in a future life can be motivation to pay attention this life or it could become hopeful dreaming.
While having some knowledge of past lives could assist you to understand yourself better, and looking forward to a future life as a better version of you, there is a caveat. Spending too much attention on past lives or future lives can be avoidance for present life.
The thing to consider is that past lives contributed to this present life and this present life contributes to future lives. Destiny and free will work in concert.
When we are born we bring in knowledge and patterns. Some serve us and some do not. That’s what our journey is about; each lifetime brings us an opportunity to learn more, evolve and become greater versions of ourselves.
I am including a link to an article about money and spending because noticing our behavior around those two can increase self-awareness. Finances are a wonderful way to learn about you. Quite often buying things is a subconscious way to try to fill a void. So, one step to learning about you and grow in self -awareness is to notice your spending buying patterns.

The concept is simple ~ we pay attention to what is occurring in our life experience, we can become clearer about what we need to address in order to create a better life this time (and next time). What needs to be changed to be a better version of ourselves. Once we get the hang of learning about ourselves and getting to know ourselves better, the journey becomes lighter and we feel more empowered.
So, if you are a seeker of Enlightenment, begin where you live…in your daily life…in your patterns.
May We All Walk in Beauty.
