Reincarnation and the Akashic Records
What is Reincarnation?
Reincarnation is the belief that the soul is immortal and that it continues on even after the body dies. This same soul can come back to Earth over and over again, in many different incarnations. It can play many roles, each designed precisely so that this soul can learn new lessons that it was unable to learn in a previous life. This soul remembers all these lessons and experiences of every incarnation, but only during the periods in-between its lifetimes on Earth. While the soul is in a person’s body it forgets the elaborate plans it made to experience whatever was planned for the current incarnation.
The Law of Karma Balances our Lives
The law of karma, or cause and effect, comes into play as well. Any actions we take, or thoughts that we have cause more far reaching effects in other people’s lives than we ever could imagine. If we have hurt others, we must make up for that in other incarnations. By the same token, if we have made great strides towards becoming enlightened, we can come back and live a few lifetimes of peace and harmony. Every action has a reaction and the force determines one’s next incarnation. A person can reincarnate until they are perfect, and then be reunited with God, (or the Supreme Energy, or The All, whatever name you use for this Divine Energy) or can work as a light giver and still return to Earth to work with less enlightened souls to help them find their way.
Once somebody reaches all their Earthly goals, they will go on to other work and continue training in spiritual realms, as there is much to learn there too. But each and every person on the planet will be able to incarnate as many times as necessary to become a perfect soul. Time does not matter at all, since it is not linear. And no old man on a throne will judge you at the end, you will judge yourself. We are all our own harshest critics.
The biggest objection to reincarnation is that there is no evidence of a physical process by which a person can be seen to leave one body and enter another. Many have heard that the soul is attached to the body with a very thin silver cord, which breaks at the time of death. Inside the cord is all the information about every life the dying person has experienced. The cord is attached to the heart.
Messages Sometimes Come Through in Dreams or Visions
Many were brave souls who agreed to come back severely handicapped, so they could live a contemplative life and work on their spirituality. Some parents agreed to caring for their drug addicted children so they could learn compassion and love, and realized that even when they thought they were being non-judgmental, they really were not. So both parties involved in the lesson had something they needed to learn. All of this information is found in what is called The Akashic Record, a huge “library” with the information of every event that happened in every incarnation of every person’s life. It is said if you meditate and work very hard at it, you may be able to get in touch with your own spirit guides, or even get guidance from your own Akashic Record.
