The explanation of past lives is based on the concept of reincarnation where the soul is born into a succession of lives in the physical world in order to encounter growth opportunities in the progression towards total maturity.
Within each soul lives the memories of many past lives. These memories play a part in making who we are today and just like a child's earliest experiences influence the later adult so to do the memories of past lives
influence us in our choices and decisions in life. These influences can either be negative or positive depending on past events and the way in which we deal with them
What is Reincarnation? It works on the premise that life is a series of births and deaths. We are unable to experience everything life has to offer i.e. love: death: riches: poverty: beauty: ugliness: pain: joy: sorrow: passion: service: hope: spirituality etc all in one lifetime. It is my belief that we have all experienced many lives in many bodies & in many diverse places and under a variety of circumstances, all in the cause of continuing soul growth.
Karma is designed to keep us on the road to our destiny. Karma is the reason why we are here now in our present incarnation and burning off our karma and learning from our past mistakes will take us nearer to our destiny, peace and fulfilment
What is Karma? The word Karma means ACTION. Just as there are governmental laws there are also Laws of the Universe and the law of Cause and Effect means that for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. How you fill your life and how you deal with situations and people has an impact. In our life we accumulate good and bad karma like credits and debits. To find out who we were in a previous life and what we have brought through into this incarnation to learn, we much first find out WHO WE ARE NOW. Who you are now is an extension of who you were. We don't change our personalities when we reincarnate. It is important to understand that you don't change from life to life. You only change according to how much you have learnt. How do you identity what your karma is, is through observing your life and the people around you.
Exploring past lives can help us to reduce stress, Control or alleviate pain, guilt and anxiety.
