We have lived other lives. Some fascinating. Some heart-breaking. Some in different countries. In totally different times. Among different races and cultures. In different epochs. Even in other worlds. Maybe in different solar systems and galaxies. And possibly as other life forms.
We are so conditioned to believe life starts and ends on this planet. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The belief that this one life is the ‘big test’ for eternity is prevalent. Either eternal happiness or eternal damnation awaits you when you die. At the end of one’s life a person can suddenly change their mind and become a believer and live eternity in paradise where as another person dies young without accepting the proper religion and goes to hell. Where’s the logic in that? There is none.
At the time of Jesus, reincarnation was a common belief and is still a main tenet in most religions. When Jesus went around telling people they must be born again it is the same word as to reincarnate but it is not interpreted in a literal way.
The 3 major groups in the area of Palestine during Jesus’ time were the Pharisees, Sadducees and Essenes. The Essenes believed in reincarnation and were centered in the Northern part of the Sea of Galilea in the Mt. Carmel area. Nazareth where Jesus grew up is situated in between. Jesus was an Essene. They believed they could summon prestigious people such as Elijah or even the Son of god to reincarnate into their group to further their own cause. Did not Jesus say that John the Baptist was the reincarnation of Elijah?
During the Council of Nicaea and later during the Fifth Ecumenical Church Council references to reincarnation were taken out of the compilation of books and letters that were being promulgated as being inspired by god. The attendees at these meetings were not ‘holy men’ but were ambitious leaders headed by the Roman Emperors Constantine and Justinian whose goal was the perpetuation and increase of their own power. The Pope’s view was not considered important and he was not even allowed to attend being under the jurisdiction of the Emperor. They wanted a belief system where they – the rulers – would be seen as appointed by God. Not only to legitimize their authority but to make people obedient and to think that their salvation was connected to the Holy Roman church that was started by Peter who was appointed by Jesus. It was they who determined what and was not the sanctimonious word of God.
The belief in reincarnation as religious doctrine goes back to the planetary configuration of Saturn, Venus and Mars. Father, wife and son. The son of god, Mars would go down the celestial polar axis toward Earth and then back up towards Venus – the Virgin Goddess – to sit in the lap of his mother where he was ‘revitalized’ and seen as being ‘born again’.
The truth is we have the power to create our own destiny. Our attitudes and beliefs in one life show up in our attitudes and beliefs in our next life. Our tastes and likes and dislikes will also transfer to the next life.
The people you know in this life are sometimes people you have known in past lives. And your relationship with them are usually an extenuation of the relationship you had with them in a past life. And it is likely that you have known some family members and close friends in former lives.
Reincarnation explains why siblings who have been raised in the exact same environment can be totally different. One’s personality is carried over into their next life and manifested. If a person has a dominant behavior chances are they had an authoritative position of some kind in a past life. A child who shows this attitude towards parents might have been the father or mother of them in a former life.
Places you have lived before are places you will be attracted to in this life. They will be places you will want to visit and that have a curiosity about. Or even want to live there.
The soul needs to learn lessons by experience. Karma is your energy that you have put out and that comes back to you in a different form. It is the law of cause and effect. It is your vibration interacting with the environment. This law makes the many successful people on our planet whose god is money – who will lie, deceive, steal and murder to obtain it the most backward souls. In effect obliterating their imperial status.
Traits need to be developed. Love, empathy and sensitivity to others are the most basic and important. If one has advanced in this area then chances are they will stand up and speak out against the greatest evil in our time – the treatment of innocent animals as if they are soul-less objects without feeling or discernment whose only purpose for being here is for us to eat.
If you save a life or help someone the favor will be returned in some way in some life. If you perpetuate the agony of one there will be a reciprocation in some way in some life.
There is good Karma and bad Karma. And group Karma. While the collective vibrational energy from the human race as a whole can effect natural laws.
We pre-cognate our own reality.
If you had some physical, mental or emotional condition in one life it will show up in some way in another life.
Tendencies and talents are usually past activities of the soul in former lives and will come out in another life. Thus one’s vocation will carry over in some way. A child prodigy is just exhibiting his or her former talents.
Even your appearance will resemble how you looked in former times.
You are usually the same sex in each incarnation. But when you appear as the opposite sex you will show some characteristics of your normal gender such as your sexual preference.
This reality is just one reality, realm or frequency. Each planet has more than one frequency thus more than one reality. So there is the possibility of different life forms simultaneously existing or vibrating at different frequencies on the same planet and not being aware of each other.
And the devastation we now see on the moons and ex-moons of Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune wasn’t always so. These ‘gas giant’ planets were actually former Brown Dwarf stars. And these type of stars radiate in the red frequency which is perfect for photosynthesis to occur. Their radiant glow would be evenly distributed over their family of planets creating ideal weather conditions. And water would be a dominant molecule and mist down from above. And this is exactly what happened on Earth before the present arrangement. As also Mars. Thus many other members of our solar system once had the optimum environment for life.
When you sleep and dream you vibrate at a different frequency thus you are more able to tap into former lives. The same is true when under the influence of certain chemicals such as chloroform.
Past life dreams are usually very literal. Reliving former lives. Being dressed in the way you dressed. Speaking how you spoke. Being with former family members. Reliving a tragic death. Or some important transition during a past life.
Through my dreams I have found out the role played in my past lives by certain people I know in my current life.
I will give a brief synopsis of my former lives as relived through my dreams:
My life immediately before this one was in a western mining town. I had intense recurring dreams of my sisters trying to locate me. Knowing the town, my name and approximate dates I set off with a skeptical friend to investigate. It didn’t take us long to find proof. Looking through the newspaper archives I found the whole story on the front page telling how I met an early end to my life. Needless to say my friend became a ‘believer’.
The next previous life was in a very remote area on a farm with my mother. The most exciting thing was when a guy would visit us driving a coverless wagon. My Mom eventually found a boyfriend and things went downhill for me after that. I spent more time out in the barn away from him and got sick and died at a very young age. I had intense dreams of desperately trying to say ‘goodbye’ to my mother but couldn’t make her aware of my presence. Crying very hard I gave up and drifted off.
The one before that was my Civil War life. I lived in Mississippi and was very young when the war broke out. I followed the Confederate troops up to Shiloh in Tennessee. When the cannons started firing it really scared me and I ran. I investigated this life also and spent a whole day at the Shiloh battlefield. That night I had a heart wrenching dream where I was looking over the gravesite of the Confederate soldiers who were buried in one big hole by the Union troops. I knew many of them. I even knew their names.
I survived the war and afterwards went to New Orleans and found my Mother working in a dance hall catering to the Yankees. I couldn’t stay there and went to East Texas and then out West where I was not afraid of confrontation or using my gun.
My previous life to that one I grew up in Warwick England and as a young boy joined the Navy. It was during the Revolutionary War and I went off to America getting stationed in New York City. There I met a girl and we decided to elope so we secretly escaped to Virginia and got married. And eventually moved to Kentucky.
I’ve also had Greek and Roman lives. As a Roman I was a guard for a high ranking General and lived a privileged life. In Greece I also had a good life living in the country.
All those lives contribute to who I am today.
Our soul either advances or regresses during each incarnation. Cultivating positive relationships with humans and animals and all life has a positive effect on your soul. And the opposite is true too.
We predestine our own lives.
And our soul lives on and on!
