Your higher self is pointing out an unresolved issue that needs to be looked at. You may be shown something from the past that is like something in your current life. It may be helpful to examine the past so you can understand your actions, reactions, or triggers. A past life memory may be coming to you so you can understand something about current life lessons. Have you been stuck in negative thinking patterns? Do you have unhealthy behaviours that are affecting your life? Do you have unexpressed emotions that need to come out? Are you looking for meaning and purpose in your life? Are you starting something new, and you are triggered by memories?
