In November, I had the pleasure of returning to Puerto Rico for a short visit. I had lived there for 5 years exactly 40 years ago. Forty years is a really long time!

I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew some things would be different, and I hoped that some things would be exactly the same.

When I lived there I worked in the tourism and convention industry, which allowed me to speak in English most of the time. But one of my main missions while there was to learn Spanish. It was a struggle, as most people I came across were bi-lingual. They would speak to each other in Spanish, and turn to me and speak in English. Poco a poco, little by little, I picked up the language. During the last year that I lived there, I was pretty much fluent. In fact, people would comment that when I spoke in Spanish on the phone, they thought I was a native!

I was so proud of that. When I returned to the States, I found it hard to speak complete sentences and paragraphs in English. I was almost stuttering, as my brain automatically wanted to speak in “Spanglish”, the flowing mix of English and Spanish words.

But after 40 years, my ability to speak Spanish faded. I would listen to Spanish radio, and even read books in Spanish at times, just to brush up.  But with time and few opportunities to practice, I went from sounding like a native Puertoriqueña, to more like a Gringa.

Memories and talents are like that. They fade. We get rusty.

It takes an effort to keep skills, talents, memories, and knowledge alive and accessible. Just like remembering your early childhood, or your past lives. We spend out lifetimes collecting skills, talents, and wisdom to become a part of our soul, but when we don’t take the time and energy to revive them, they just slip away.

You have lived an infinite number of lifetimes. You have lived in multitudes of locations, spoken many, many languages, and have had untold numbers of occupations and hobbies. Yet, with all those experiences, and the effort to learn all those things, what do you have to show for it? How many of them are available to you to use?

By exploring your past lives, it is possible to revive those memories and skills. By going there and having the experience again, it can bring it all back into focus. Just like me visiting Puerto Rico.

When I arrived in San Juan, it took a while to orient myself to my surroundings. Like I suspected, so much had changed, and yet many things were very much familiar. Condos and hotels had popped up where there used to be homes and trees. Old San Juan was nearly unchanged, but it was my memory that was lacking in clarity and orientation.

Slowly, with the help of a friend who still lives there, I have begun to piece back parts of my life that were so important to me. It had only been 40 years, and yet my memory had distorted or let go of facts. With great pleasure I found my ability to speak Spanish kicked in after a few days, and my accent is already improving. My energetic connections to the island are being rebuilt and my inner Latina is awakening once again!

In the same way, when reviving past life memories, it may take help, research, orientation, and piecing memories together. In my recent post I talk about about recalling forgotten spiritual gifts, and the value of accessing past life talents and skills. What rewarding experiences we have had throughout our existence!

Why not capture, hold, and cherish them?
