Reincarnation isn’t for everyone, but for those open to it, unexplained sensations can be clues to how you bit the dust in a previous incarnation. As disturbing as it sounds, strangulation was not uncommon way back when, and its effects seem to linger for some.
Do you experience shortness of breath or neck pain for no reason? Trouble swallowing or a raspy voice that you can’t pin down? These could be your body remembering how it felt as the life was literally squeezed out of you long ago. Stick with me here – this isn’t meant to freak you out but to validate what you may have always suspected. Your “imagination” may be memories of a past life cut violently short.
Unexplained Throat/Neck Pain or Discomfort
If your throat frequently feels constricted or you have trouble swallowing for no medical reason, it may be a clue that your past self suffered strangulation. The trauma from being choked in a previous incarnation can manifest as physical discomfort in your current body.
- You may feel pressure around your neck, like something is squeezing or tightening. This can happen suddenly, even when you’re relaxed.
- Swallowing difficulties can arise from past life strangulation. It may feel like there’s a lump in your throat you can’t clear.
- Soreness in your throat and neck that comes and goes with no explanation is common. You may feel bruised or tender in the area for a while.
Of course, any persistent or severe throat symptoms should be checked by a doctor right away. But if all medical causes have been ruled out, the source of your suffering may be rooted in distant memories of how a past life ended violently. The emotional and physical pain from strangulation can echo through lifetimes, reminding us of a tragic fate we once met.
Recurring Nightmares of Being Choked or Strangled
If you frequently have nightmares of being strangled or choked, it could be a sign you were strangled in a past life. Dreams of being unable to breathe or having your airway blocked are common clues. You may dream of hands around your neck, a rope tightening around your throat or another object constricting your breathing. These recurring dreams suggest your subconscious is accessing memories from a past life where your life was cut short by strangulation.
Some people even report waking up in the middle of the night and feeling like something’s choking them or touching their neck, yet they are unable to move or get rid of the choking sensation.
Hearing About Strangulation Makes You Sick
Have you ever felt a deep sense of dread and revulsion when hearing about someone being strangled? This could be a sign that you experienced being strangled in a past life. When the soul undergoes a traumatic death, elements of that trauma can remain with the soul through lifetimes.
If the idea of being strangled – or even seeing images of someone being strangled – makes you feel physically ill, this could indicate you were strangled in a past life. The soul remembers trauma on a deep, visceral level that goes beyond rational memory. Merely hearing about strangling can trigger unpleasant physical sensations in the body as the soul remembers that experience.
You may feel a tightness in your throat or chest, nausea, dizziness or lightheadedness when hearing about strangling. The emotions that arise – fear, horror, disgust – can be overwhelming. The soul’s memory of that trauma can dominate your emotional and physical reaction, even though your conscious mind does not recall any specific details.
Fear or Dislike of Necklaces, Chokers, Turtlenecks, or Other Tight Neckwear
A dislike of having anything tight around your neck could be a sign that you were strangled in a past life. Some people have the fear of being trapped or confined. The memory of being strangled and unable to breathe freely in a past life could create a present-day fear of neckwear that feels confining or restrictive.
Others have an anxiety stemming from a traumatic death experience. Dying by strangulation would have been an extremely traumatic and distressing experience that could have imprinted on your soul. Your aversion to turtlenecks and chokers might be a subconscious way to avoid triggering that emotional memory and trauma.
A physical imprint of the strangulation that remains energetically is another possibility. Some believe that unnatural or traumatic deaths can leave an imprint or scar in your energy field that carries over to your present life. Your discomfort with tight neckwear could be due to a literal energetic imprint around your throat area.
You may also have a desire to protect your neck. At a subconscious level, your aversion to neckwear that touches or applies pressure to your neck may be a way to protect yourself from harm to that vulnerable area of your body. Your soul still remembers the threat to your neck from the past life strangulation and is acting to safeguard you.
While reincarnation is still debated, for those open to the idea, reflecting on unexplained marks, sensations or fears you’ve experienced could provide insight into traumatic events from previous lives. The truth may be unsettling, but awareness is the first step towards healing.
If any of these signs resonated with you, do some journaling on what came up and how you felt. The imprints of old wounds will fade, freeing you to live fully and love deeply once again.
