The continuing influence of a past-life experience upon the present one is a phenomenon well-known to those who practice PLT. This case study illustrates an important but often overlooked point that carry-over may not be from one life time but rather from several.
Sexual karma may sometimes be the most powerful kind of karma people can create for themselves. This would not be surprising, considering the primal nature of sex and the deep emotions it can engender in people. Because of the crucial role sex can play in a person’s life, if the expression of sexuality is seriously thwarted for some reason, feelings of self worth and sense of identity can sometimes be greatly affected. As a result, powerful emotions of guilt, resentment, and self hate can develop.
Andrea came to my office about a year ago, in much distress over inexplicable feelings of guilt and resentment toward her new husband of five months, as well as a feeling of sexual rejection from him. Even though she could rationally see he was not really rejecting her, she was feeling he was, and she was even finding herself setting up situations where he would have no choice but to reject her. Her resentment and guilt about the situation was now threatening their marriage.
