Most of the time knowing our past lives is relatively useless and would overload our consciousness with too many details that would impede our current lives. Frankly remembering all of our past lives would be overwhelming and tedious, and alot of them would probably be relatively unremarkable. There would be too many associations for our brains to sort and we would likely shut down from information overload. However, some lives of significance can reveal relationship, emotional, mental, or physical karmic patterns that keep replaying themselves in life after life that can be processed in order to create greater flexibility and change in our current lives.Read More
Some people's lives tend to unfold with relative ease. Of course we all have the normal human setbacks: illness, loss, death and heartbreak. However, some people have lives where it seems like mental, physical and or emotional turmoil is the norm rather than the exception.
In many spiritual traditions that acknowledge the reality of reincarnation it is believed that some particular lifetimes are meant to be difficult in order for the soul to accelerate its learning. These are called "working lifetimes". In working lifetimes, which are believed to be one in every ten lifetimes, the soul may experience heightened difficulties and challenges (as well as heightened spiritual understanding) in order to speed up the soul's evolution.Read More
Yolo! You've heard it everywhere, popularized by twittering Tweens and co-opted by everyone from the Kardashians to politicians. I always chuckle when I hear the phrase because while I understand the metaphor behind the "you only live once" adage, it indicates the perpetuation of an ideological trend in western culture that ignores reincarnation as a reality. Something like 20-30 percent of people in the United States believe in reincarnation, compared to 60-65 percent in countries like India, Nepal and Japan.
As people begin to have more past life, near death and out of body experiences feelings and thoughts about the continuance of the human consciousness beyond the physical body continues to grow, and those percentages will rise. With everyone from well respected doctors to 4 year olds recalling miraculous and eerily factual memories of former lifetimes it's becoming increasingly more difficult for westerners, who are open minded, to dismiss it as ridiculous, fanciful or unrealistic.Read More
Sometimes kids say "creepy" things. You know stuff like "the woman in my room last night told me grandma was sick" or when you ask them who they're talking to and the say "billy" and you say, "where's billy" and they point right next to you.
If you've never read these, do it. I wanted to tell some of these people they needed to donate their children immediately to someone else because something is way off! Why is your child imagining "waves of blood" rushing over them! No.
Okay, yes, some of these things are incredible material for the sequel to The Sixth Sense, but some of them may actually be worth exploring.Read More
