Smoke & Mirrors Top10 Myths Against Reincarnation
Died and Prejudice...
Ask any past life worker... there is a
very strong prejudice in society (even ones with belief
systems that support the twin concepts of
against doing past life exploration.
The myths about reincarnation are hard wired into the human
The reason is that this Earth is a
giant schoolhouse and we are all here to learn lessons that we
"got wrong" in past lives.
All that really matters is where we are
now and what we are learning now.
Being free from the knowledge of our past
lives relieves us from the baggage of our past mistakes as well
as from "cheat codes" that could advance us more quickly.
So we agree to
and we agree to resist the knowledge and
the freedom belief in reincarnation could bring us.
So here are the "Top Ten
Myths AGAINST Reincarnation"...
"Reincarnation is appalling. It kills
ambition. It perpetuates human misery. It propagates false hopes.
It is obviously a pack of lies." (from "On a Clear Day You Can See
An Inconvenient Truth:
Ironically, the above quote comes from a very
pro-reincarnation movie, "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever" (Barbra
Streisand). This movie first introduced me to the concepts of past
lives and reincarnation and, in many ways, it has inspired my work
ever since then. The above quote clearly outlines many individuals'
objections to reincarnation.
In my experience, when someone connects with
the truth of their past lives, this FUELS their ambition to put right
now what once went wrong - rather than killing it. Similarly, I have
never ever had someone tell me that they will wait until their next
life to get things right because knowledge of reincarnation has given
them permission to take a nap this time around. Most often, past
lives are what has shaped an individual to be either ambitious or lazy.
In my experience, ambition (or lack thereof) is a quality a person
either has or does not have.
I believe that knowledge of reincarnation
gives people hope… hope that is denied when people believe that they
are locked into a single, cruel, and pointless existence to which
death is the only escape. What ends human misery is the knowledge
that every experience they have is rich in karmic learning and burn
off, that they have more chances at life than one, and that their
karma can be improved as they choose to become more like love.
What are these exactly? That, if we learn
our karmic lessons, that our lives can improve radically in a short
span of time? That, because we reincarnate, we are not roasting in
an endless Hell full of fire, brimstone, and devils with pitchforks?
Or that we are not lost in Purgatory in a sea of dead babies and
marginal souls? Or that we will not be bored to death by growing
wings, sitting on a cloud, and plucking a harp endlessly in Heaven
enduring celestial boredom? Coming back to Earth to have more
adventures is much more empowering.
"Pack of Lies":
What are these exactly? That a loving God
gives us infinite chances to learn what is and is not like love so
that we can become an worthy CoWorker in the unfoldment of a more
loving and kind universe? That all we have to do is treat others
with kindness and compassion so that when we sow love, we can reap
it? That creation is so grand that to understand it, we have to
experience it from all angles via reincarnation? All I can say
is "Gimme a break!"
Although reincarnation can seem disorganized,
random, cruel, and pointless, this is only because the bigger and more
complex picture of the divine plan for resolution of past life karma
is not seen. Reincarnation is actually a well organized, well planned,
and well executed process which is designed to enhance spiritual
growth and development while delivering divine justice.
The resolution of past life karma does not
work on a "last in, first out" basis (that in each life the individual
always works on the previous one). More often than not, people choose
to work on other past lives BEFORE their last previous life. Often the
"wounds" of the last life are too fresh to be faced (which does not
stop these "wounds" from appearing as
birth-marks). More often, many of
the individuals have moved on to other karmic groups. So they will
not be available until later in future lifetimes when all the players
can be reunited.
Not One Life:
Most individuals are deeply effected by three
significant past lives (not just one past life). When an individual has
worked through enough karma on their primary three past lives (their
past life load),
other lives will emerge to be healed. Very few individuals chose to
reincarnate with a plan to work on ten or more past lives at once
because of the huge difficulty involved. Only in very primitive
societies do individuals work on the karma of just one past life.
Unless you are an "advanced Soul", you will not
have total control over as to where, when, and who will you return.
The choice of incarnation is always under supervision of your guides.
The criteria for your reincarnation is based on your current spiritual
level, what spiritual level you would like to achieve, and the past
life karma between you and others. This creates the "Must Dos" and
"Nice to Haves" in your Life Contract (for more on this,
This is the belief that all is pre-determined
and all that anyone says or does means nothing, effects nothing, and
changes nothing. Over cycles of reincarnation, karma works to free
individuals from the fears that would otherwise rob them of the
motivation to heal and improve their lives... especially of the false
belief in karmic fatalism. Reincarnation is how we reap the effects
in the present/future of what we sowed by our causes/actions in
No Real Evidence:
Formal reincarnation studies use the same
standards of investigation and uncover the same kinds of evidence that
would hold up in a court of law. This
legal kind of evidence
includes "independent eyewitness testimony",
"physical documents", and "physical artifacts" verifying unpublished
details of past life regressions. There is literally a "mountain of
evidence", gathered in a scientific manner, that science chooses to
ignore because of
Other Myths About Reincarnation:
"Reincarnation happens" but NOT in a random
and haphazard way. Karma is very precise: it draws individuals
together perfectly through what seems like chaos. For example, those
on a battle-field who are rushing headlong at what appears to be
strangers are actually finding karmic partners with the precision
of guided missiles to balance past life karma.
"Unscientific" means not acceptable to
scientists who are atheists or whose religion is anti-reincarnation.
Yet reincarnation operates with "beyond" scientific exactness. For
example, all families and most friends are deep karmic partners who
are attracted to one another
in webs of social networks - which are formed by past life karma - everywhere
at all times all around the world.
"No Such Thing as Soul":
How karma works is that what each soul sows,
each soul reaps. Most see how "what goes around, comes around" and
believe in this cycle of personal sowing and reaping. The human legal
system operates on the principle that choices made by an individual
have consequences for their life and freedom. Karma is the great law
and the immoveable judge while reincarnation is its irresistible
enforcer ensuring that each soul pays its karmic debts.
