for me is done through a process of "harmonic resonance"
meaning: everything has a "hum", a vibratory signal it gives off . . . seeing past lives is a recognition of this hum coming from another source
this is why Allie said this German Hussar was me, as soon as she first saw the photo -- since (to her) it gave off the same "vibration"
. . . "I'd know you ANYWHERE, Brewer-boy"
uh huh :)
I felt the same way -- it just "did something" to me that was "different" than when I looked at photos of other "possible matches"
and this particular photo was just an accidental thing that "caught my eye" and for several years I had no idea who he was
so this "matching" was way different than my "normal approach" but (in this case) the "resonance" -- not to mention the uncanny physical resemblance
made me go "hmmmmm"
made Allie go hmmmmm, too
Allie Cheslick was the person I trusted most with these types of questions; if I said it and Allie said it, I assumed most of the time it was "true" and was going to happen
and even though I have said I don't really pay attention to other psychics, that is not 100% true as I do have a small little group I pay attention to . . . it doesn't stop me from making predictions
because pretty much literally as I think it, I post it :)
and for those types of things, I don't want to know too much about what others "think" or have predicted
but it DOES, however, make me do a double take some times on past life "matches"
Allie and I had LOTS of conversations over the years about this; she wasn't as "into it" (it being "reincarnation") as I was but she could see it just like me and so, more than all others, I trusted her as my "second opinion"
there will likely never, for me, be anyone I trust as much on these types of questions as I did Allie :(
I just don't expect that to happen :(
anyway . . . this matching vibratory "hum" is the "signal" that things are in alignment and much like you say when guessing where things are hidden "you're getting hot, no you're getting cold, whoops yes now you are turbo hot", this matching vibe will point the way towards "the truth" . . . and when I read for people, I will often say this "clangs me"
signifying that the vibration resonates in harmony with the question or match
. . . harmonics is where it's at when it comes to seeing who is within your soul group and who is not, as well as who is a potential long-term partner and who is just a short-term distraction
attraction and resonance don't always go together; there are plenty of people for whom you have an amazing initial attraction that goes cold quickly
and others who stick around even when, at first glance, they don't light you up in the ways perhaps others might
I feel it pretty much straight from jump when there is a match
this works for seeing who's a karmic connection as well as saying "yes, that was you" or "no, that doesn't match you"
you can do this yourself, too -- it comes down to noticing, really noticing, how you "feel" when you look at someone or look at a particular situation
trust the "vibe" coming off that person; not what you THINK
what you FEEL . . . gut instinct, 2nd chakra
this is how I "know" who fits
and how, with a little patience and practice and a "quiet mind", you can, too
Professionally, I am a 6th chakra kind of guy (3rd eye, clairvoyant)
but I "confirm" this through my 2nd chara, (old school empath)
this 2nd chakra empath approach can work for most people -- feel the hum and follow it to where it takes you
don't let your fears talk you out of your "recognition"
trust yourself until you have "confirmation" you can trust yourself :)
in English, don't be afraid to make mistakes as you develop the fine tuning capabilities that point you towards
and the truth shows up in the vibratory "relationship"
literally . . . when things or people are "on the same wave length"
