You may have experienced that sense of deja vu before, or a feeling like you’re suddenly in a movie you’ve already seen and you’re watching it play out. Those tiny moments when we have an awareness of a past we’ve already lived is a great example of the psychic ability to see into the past, or what’s called retro-cognition.
What is retro-cognition?
Retro-cognition literally translates from Latin as “backwards seeing,” and is the ability for psychics to see into the past. This is the opposite of precognition, which is when psychics see into the future- the usual psychic ability we hear about.
Retro-cognition is helpful as well though, and might show up as knowing information about what happened in the past in a location, simply by sensing the energy there when you walk in. Or holding an object that belongs to someone and getting a sense of a memory or past experience that is directly linked to the owner of that item.
Retro-cognition is simply when a psychic experiences a knowing about what has already happened, without any physical evidence or awareness. It’s perceived entirely through metaphysical senses.
How can a psychic seeing into the past help me?
If you find a psychic with retro-cognitive abilities who can see into the past, they may be able to help you work through past issues and relationships in your life through this different skill.
Psychometry is the retro-cognitive ability to perceive the history of an object simply by touching it. This could help you to connect with memories of experiences from your past that an object retains, or to gain more insight into relationships that didn’t get closure if you have an object that belonged to that person.
There are also occurrences of psychics being able to learn new things about events from the past by seeing the memory, or imprint of the past’s energy enacted in front of them. This can help you gain important insight and information and to answer some gaps in knowledge you may have.
Is a psychic seeing into the past the same as seeing past lives?
Retro-cognition can be helpful to see actual events that happened in our known history, or to gain an idea of what may have occurred in a particular location. It is not the same as a past life reading though, which digs into your soul’s many different lives, rather than any ancestral or genetic lineage that a retro-cognitive reading might be able to give you.
