The Existence of the Soul?
Déjà vu or misplaced memory? Do you believe in past lives and/or reincarnation of the soul? Have you ever had a moment that seemed so oddly familiar that you know you’ve been in that space of time in the same conversation, place or event before?
I’ve experienced these kinds of moments a few times and during that moment of familiarity it almost feels like things are moving in slow motion as I begin to make the connection and a sense or feeling comes to the surface. I do believe that these are the signposts along your journey to let you know you’re on the right path and meeting the right connections.
I’m not overly religious or immersed in any one belief system, I believe that all belief systems at the core have the same root in that they all stem from a higher source of power that we pay homage to and acknowledge. The fine details of each may differ but the purpose of the collective is having faith in something bigger than ourselves. Of course it is the option through free will that each of you get to choose or not choose where you want to place your faith but I don’t believe that the strength of your faith is dependent upon where or how you choose to honor it but rather the depth of your integrity, gratitude for life and compassion towards others.
A few years ago I had read a theory in a book by Sylvia Browne about past lives and her reference to what she called “bleed-throughs”, it has been a few years since I read this so I do not remember it exactly as it was written but the jist of her theory was with relation to someone experiencing a multiple personality and the possibility may not necessarily be a disorder but rather a bleed-through of a personality from a past life. I found this theory really interesting and wondered how far back into past lives these bleed-throughs can manifest from, maybe all the way back from the soul beginnings?
There are many accredited practitioners and psychiatrists, etc., that treat patients with past life regression therapy and/or hypnotherapy, so if the belief is there isn’t there a possibility that a past life has memories rooted in the soul so strongly that they may be blending in the current life you lead?
I recently watched an episode I had PVR’d of Oprah’s “Super Soul Sunday” with Dr. Brian Weiss who spoke about past lives and their impact which only furthered my interest in the subject of where it all begins for each soul. He spoke of one particular patient that turned his entire traditional training and belief system in a complete 180 degrees and how it changed his life direction and purpose. I imagine that even in the ideals of those in clinical and scientific study that rely and depend on factual evidence, thoughts or talk of this subject could be considered suicidal to a career, especially 30 years ago so I’d definitely say he was a trailblazer.
I am happy to see these skeptical subjects that long ago would have been considered “crazy talk” are now coming into the forefront of conversation and people are interested to know more. These topics aren’t easily proved because they lack the tangible and fact based evidence that is usually a requirement within anything of scientific nature. I think the biggest aspect of believing in the possibility of soul beginnings, intuitiveness and psychic experiences is within the foundation of your faith in the existence of things that you cannot see or touch.
With every life experience comes the opportunity to evolve your spirit more. I wouldn’t think that there would be anything awful about the thought of multiple life experiences because it just means you keep getting more opportunities to get things right, to progress and advance your soul’s higher learning.
My life experiences so far have continued to strengthen my belief in that higher source of power, when I feel unsettled I find inspiration comes in which reconnects me to the Universal source of energy that resonates within my soul. I trust that by following my instincts I will continue to follow my passion which in turn keeps me in alignment with my life’s purpose.
Things are shifting aren’t they and the more they shift the more connected we all become!
