It involves our soul's cyclical return to this planet or other planes until we have developed ourselves in such a positive state that all our negative karma is gone and we once again can re-unit with the source - the source of all creation.
Both the religion of Buddhism and Hinduism believe in reincarnation.
If you knew that a person really suffering today was actually Adolf Hitler reborn - would you feel pity for that person or would you say "justice has been served" ? The soul of Adolf Hitler is now learning and experiencing the pain he brought upon others by the millions in his previous life.
I am not saying we should by cold hearted or ignore helping those less fortune than ourselves. I am just trying to explain one of the laws of the universe - the Law of Cause and Effect
We should of course help those in need.
Some believe that we choose to reincarnate to learn different lessons - even painful lessons becuase of what we have done in previous lives
This is hard to grasp for most people when you see all the suffering that is going on in this world. It seems like the world is becoming harsher and that we are fed with crime and suffering scenes all the time through newspapers, TV, internet etc. As such there must be many souls dealing with their bad actions from previous lives.
If you believe in it or not there are countless stories about people who claim to have lived before.There are people who can describe where they lived, what they did and who they were.Even at an early age some people are showing signs of having lived before - like in this video showing a small boy named James Leininger who was reliving the life of James Huston, a World War II fighter pilot who was killed in the battle for Iwo Jima--over 60 years ago!
"James Leininger story is the most compelling evidence so far for reincarnation." - T.J. MacGregor, Edgar-winning author, Running Time
He began regressing his clients back in time to access their memories of former lives. In the process of this work he discovered something incredible: that it is possible to see into the spirit world through the mind's eye of patients who are in a hypnotized or superconscious state. Dr. Newton tells us that his clients were able to tell him what their soul was doing between lives on Earth or on other planets in this universe.
To Dr. Newton this was more than just incredible since he himself did not believe in life after death or in re-incarnation.
All the subjects had the same story to tell about what happens when the body dies. They see themselves floating out of the body and upward.
All Dr. Newtons subjects also describe being met by their loved once as well as by their spiritual helper/leader who is a soul which has "graduated" and no longer re-incarnates.
In all the cases the subject also talk about once again gaining full awareness and feeling the power of the Source.They feel everything - they can sense all there is - every thought and feeling that is going on or has ever been thought in the universe is part of them.They are one with the ALL - the Everything - the Source - with God.
In his research Dr. Newton also discovered that birthmarks seemed to be related to a traumatic episode from a previous life. According to Dr. Newton some of the birthmarks on his patients were directly related to the cause of death in the previous life.
In one part of the book Dr.Newton refers to a patient who under hypnosis (more about hypnosis here) talks about being killed in the previous life by an arrow from an Indian -the arrow going into the neck. When examining the patient after the regression session Dr.Newton found a huge birthmark at exactly the same place as being indicated by the patient during the hypnosis session. He goes on to mention more examples of how birthmarks might be signs from a traumatic episode in a previous life.
In this video Jeffrey Keene talks about how he had an experience which indicated to him that he had lived before. He also talks about how certain marks on his body might have been those he got from that previous life.
Some will argue that this is just coincidences and that there are no such thing as re-incarnation. Are we all here because of the Big Bang and evolution? BUT no-body really knows what was before the Big Bang. How did everything start? Is there a higher Intelligence behind everything? And if we are reborn how many lives have we lived and how many more are we going to live.
Why not keep an open mind. What do you have to loose?
Dr. Michael Newton was certainly convinced about a life after death after a decade of research.
He explains what was revealed to him during the different session with his subjects.
They all talk about an evaluation after each life. When they pass over they have an evaluation of their life and this session is carried out together with their spiritual leader. The life lived on earth or somewhere else in the universe is being evaluated and each soul must be accountable for their positive and negative actions/behavior.
In his research we also hear about how the souls explain The Law of Cause and Effect - the Law of Karma.
I have been told that in each bloody part of the Earths history there has always been a considerable number of souls who has not been able to withstand human evil and fight it. Souls are not perfect and they can be suffering when they develop in a life-form like the human race. If the actions are really horrific we call them evil, but no soul is born evil. Souls which are involved in really cruel actions can be considered to be less developed. The souls development include growth and maturity from the incomplete to the complete. This development occur by living many lives in difficult bodies and solving their tasks.
All souls are responsible for their actions in the body they inhabit.
But how is the soul who has inflicted terrible pain onto a human through the human body held accountable for such actions after the soul has passed over?
Are all souls granted the possibility to return to the spirit world no-matter what type of relationship they have had to the body they inhibited?
For a bad soul the separation from the God essence is a form of punishment after death according to old philosophers.
The Tibetan Book of the Dead is several thousand years older than the Bible and it says:
The evil we have done sends us into a spiritual separation
According to Dr.Newton there is no hell and hence the punishment is some form of separation. In his research the patients told him during hypnosis that all spirits go back to the spirit world after death. Certain souls are separated and put in "isolation" and this happens when they go through their briefing with their spiritual leaders. These souls are not to be together with other souls - they are put in "spiritual isolation" for a long time.
Dr.Newtons research is very exciting and well know actress Shirley Maclain also refers to his research in several interviews.
Below is a video from CNN where Larry King interviews different spiritual mediums like Lisa Williams about ghosts and spirits. AND in the last part of this video he interviews Shirley Maclain who talks about how the energy never dies and how the soul goes on to the spiritual world when the body dies. She says she has lived many lives before and that she remembers them.
In 2001 Journalist Tom Shroder, Sunday Style editor of the Washington Post, published his book Old Souls. The research for this book was obtained while travelling with Stevenson on one of his field trips to interview children who claimed they had lived before. They traveled to India and Lebanon and Shroder was able to hear for himself the stories told by the children.
This is a fascinating book that tells the true stories of children who vividly can remember concrete details about dead strangers, their homes, families, etc. In many cases, the subjects exhibit birthmarks corresponding to injuries or traumatic events in their past lives.
