If we can imagine our life as being one large cycle and within that greater cycle, there are many smaller cycles. Which throughout our lives are repeated, some more frequently than others.The purpose of these cycles are to replenish, to take stock and build upon, to learn from our mistakes and to release the anguishes, anxieties, the fears and hurts from our past.
To let go of what no longer serves our purpose any more. As once we have learned our lessons there is no real need to repeat them, making the same old mistakes (this being a cycle within itself).
So on a level of far greater depth and capacity, infinitely we are all one with the Universe and it’s energy, everything exists within cycles and all is recycled. As humans, we repeat the same patterns from past life cycles, until we can recognize them for what they are. Once we do this, we are then able to free our selves from being stuck in the past and can remain in the present to enjoy life.
This gives us a greater understanding of the reasons why past lives may exist, to possibly know why we have chosen to come down on earth again, to be reborn into the cycle of rebirth.
One of the reasons for this, might be that there may be a karmic debt that you need to pay off to someone or to society. Or there may have been some unfinished business with others, that you left behind in you previous life and that you may wish to change or to put right.
In most religions, it is believed that we will enter an afterlife of some kind and by many, reincarnation. In Christianity, reincarnation may have existed until around the 4th century AD. It was then said to have been removed by the Roman emperor Constantine, possibly through fear of loosing control of the church at the time.
After we have passed on from a life cycle on earth, we enter the “Inter life” (known as “Bardo” in Buddhism). This is a place between lives before entering into the next life on earth. It is where we can look at the previous life and reflect; to ask for forgiveness, or to forgive those that are there with us, or those we left behind on earth.
It is a place of peace and serenity, calmness and tranquility and where the soul is cleansed. It is a place to learn and spiritually grow before we move on into the next or present life. Wherever or whatever stage you may have reached at this present time in your life, is a result from your past!
Child awareness of Rebirth:
There are many children that have recalled and remembered their past lives, without being aware of what it actually is, as it comes so naturally to them.
I have heard parents saying things like; their daughter said to them when they were driving along;” I used to live over there before, but you weren’t my mummy then”! Another child in Scotland said; “I used to live over there with my boys”!
One Lady told me that when her child was around the age of around five years old, they ran out from the house and open the gate into the street. The lady became frantic and shouted out to the child. The child responded and said, “Don’t you know I know that. That is how I died the last time”.
Often children are aware of another existence from around the age of two, up until around six years old. The seven-year cycle then takes effect as we progress into adulthood.
Creating a greater awareness in the consciousness mind, bringing forth changes and re-learning to cope with the problems of modern day life, while the unconscious mind is not lost but almost forgotten.Except, when we gain access through our dreams, or in visions that some might have, the feelings of Deja vu and of course, through past life regression therapy.
