On one side you have the believers, and on the other, the opposers. And somewhere in between, the middle ones who could go either this way or that, depending on what time of the weather it was, and who was present company.
Being a non-denominational spiritual healer, I think it’s anyone’s guess which side of the fence I sit on, although I prefer not to judge and I certainly understand from which line of defence the nay-sayers come. It’s difficult to be a spiritual healer without acknowledging the immortality of the soul, since our work is essentially to bring the soul back to it’s original state of grace. It’s not really about healing the body, although that could be a starting point or even the end, or a bright happy coincidence along the way.
Funnily enough, reincarnation wasn’t actually my topic of choice for today, but it came as one of these daily prompt exercises on WordPress and that sort of inspired me to share some of the thoughts and learnings I’ve gleaned to my fellow bloggers and loyal blog followers.
Did you know, for instance, that once you pass on from one life, your soul actually sits in for a life review in front of enlightened beings, and you go through each and every single moment of your life with them, and discuss and understand the reasons and the results of every thought and action you had ever made. You then have a choice to come back to the world again, in another form or shape, if it was felt that that was crucial for your soul’s progress and learning.
I’ve also come to realise that many people’s unresolved conflicts in their current lives, often have past life origins. You may be able to trace your unexplainable fear of water to a drowning in a past life several hundred years ago . Your fear of closed spaces could be because you were buried alive in the ground by rival tribal factions. Many clients have been able to release themselves from these type of issues during past life hypnosis sessions, where the root cause of their issues comes to light. Sometimes awareness of the origins of all our problems and acknowledging them is all that is required to heal and move on in our lives.
We also have soul contracts or agreements with each and every person that we meet or have come across in our entire lives! That’s right! No meeting is by chance. Every meeting that you have was pre-ordained, for your specific growth and enlightenment. This is of course, is aside from your inner circle of family and friends who have come back with us life after life to help our soul work through difficult spots, release the fears and find it’s way home. That thought in itself is kind of humbling you know? It kind of makes me look at everyone differently and understand them maybe just a wee bit more.
In parting, I guess I’d just like to say whilst all this debate about the validity of reincarnation continues to rage unabated, the real key learning to take away from it all is that at the end, what happened in the past really doesn’t matter does it? In the grand scheme of things, it only serves as a guide post and a roadmap for the future. All that counts is where you are right now, and what you make of it from this step on. Namaste! 🙂
