People do not remember past lives for several different reasons.

Generally, this information is not pertinent to this experience and part of their journey. For some, this information would serve as a distraction and possibly a burden; keeping them from accomplishing what they need to learn this time around.

The present physical body is constructed from many elements and this body is new having no memory of past experience. In some respect, it is like a new car with no mileage on it and no past history- clean without a previous owner/driver.

Conversely, people can and do recall aspects of past lives. This occurs under at least 2 conditions: when they are spiritually advanced enough to absorb this information without causing a major life disruption; or when this information is necessary for advancing learning in this particular experience.

Sometimes memories, feelings or physical illness manifest that link to past experience and these must be absorbed and worked on in this phase. Often these messages ‘slip-out’ from the soul, where they are stored and work their way into consciousness. Usually, the soul is sending us a message to examine this aspect/event so that learning might occur and we move forward.
