So you say you don’t believe you have lived in a past life? Well, lie back, get comfortable and close your eyes while I count slowly from 10…9…8…7…. Just mention hypnosis and most people have visions of falling into deep trance that leave them completely helpless. Of course, they are in the hands of a hypnotist who wields total control and can make them do anything he wants them to. If that is what you think hypnosis is, you’re about to be enlightened.
Actually, you hypnotize yourself every day. The average person slips into an alpha trance or hypnotic state from three to six hours a day. You probably call it a daydream, lost in your thoughts, or becoming engrossed in a television show or movie. Another name for hypnosis is deep relaxation, which is all that this process entails. While in hypnosis, you are aware of all that is happening around you and won’t or can’t be forced to do anything you don’t want to do. All you are doing is bypassing your conscious mind and allowing your subconscious to come through. Your subconscious is a vast storehouse of information and abilities and is supposed to include details about your present, past, and future life experiences. To get an idea of how regression works, sit back for a moment and reflect back on your childhood. Like most people, your mind will skip from significant event to significant event. You’re regressing. While it is not as accurate or deep as hypnotic regression, it’s basically the same idea.
Your future lives are not necessarily better than the one you’re living now. The pathway to perfection is full of ruts and holes, it seems. Many people think they spent their past lives as kings, queens, and clerics. Fact is, the average person has had 1,000 or more lives and they can be, to put it kindly, varied. You would probably find that you’ve been a little bit of everything you wanted, or didn’t want to be. I believe we are basically energy, tuned to a particular wavelength, so to speak. That energy, or the soul, leaves the body at the point of death and goes on to what we’ll call the soul plane. It is there that you evaluate your life and become acclimated to your new existence with the help of spirit guides and our Higher Self (the perfect component of our soul). On this “other side,” there is no time or space. This is where you choose your next life, including where, when, and how you will be born, who your parents, relatives, and friends will be, and the major events in your life.
All of this is designed for you to learn lessons or to change your karmic cycle, which simply means, “what you sow, ye shall reap.” The positive and negative things you do in this life will be carried over and karmic debts paid or received according to your own plan.
Because there is no time or space on the other side, it is possible to incarnate at different times in our sense of history past, present, or future. The objective of reincarnation is simply to learn in this school called Earth. And you choose the time and place to best learn your lessons. Our Earthly series of lifetimes is certainly not the ultimate reality, but one of several possibilities. It is our mind, or consciousness, that continues through each one of our incarnations. It contains the memories of all of our past, present, and future lifetimes, through accessing something known as the Akashic records. These records are fifth dimensional charts on our reincarnation or karmic cycle. We are in reality, energy. As such, we cannot be destroyed. We cannot die. We simply appear to change bodies every 75 years or so.
Skeptics, especially those who pride themselves on their rationalism, must come to terms with the fact that quantum physics and superstring theory are now accepted scientific paradigms. Concepts formerly ridiculed as “metaphysical”— multidimensionality, simultaneity, even reincarnation and karma—now have a scientific foundation.
The basic law of karma has come to mean action and reaction, or cause and effect. Any action that is considered harmful or evil to the well-being of another is recompensed exactly in proportion to the harm done.
The reverse also applies. One of the basic principles of karma is that every soul (entity) has free will. There is always freedom of choice. Each soul is drawn to parents who can provide the biological heredity and physical environment needed to learn karmic lessons. Psychic genetics is more important than biological genetics in determining the character of our lives. In addition, all lessons and deeds are recorded in the entity’s Akashic records, which are used to determine each new lifetime. These records, as I previously stated, are the sum total of our past, present, and future lives, and are accessible through our superconscious mind (Higher Self).
If you are unhappy about your life, your financial situation, your relationships, or your health, for example, then you must realize that a cause exists. These causes can be traced back to past lives. Your subconscious mind retains all of these causes because it has a perfect memory bank. The subconscious mind also survives death, so that a new life means merely exchanging one body for another. You have the same subconscious,only now it has learned some lessons, and hopefully, grown spiritually.
All of the things you have or have not done in this and all of your past lives will generate certain effects in this life as well as in future lifetimes. The laws of karma are perfectly just.
The soul always has free will. Karma can bring you happiness or sadness, depending on the effects you have earned and the paths you have chosen to take. It is not the purpose of karma to reward or punish. Its purpose is to educate the subconscious, and to purify it. Once the subconscious is purified, it no longer needs karma, or the “karmic cycle,” as we refer to it. The result is ascension and a return to God.
If, however, we react to certain tests in our lives negatively (with hatred, revenge, jealousy, pettiness, or some other negative emotion), then we have not learned our lesson, but have failed the test and will have to retake it in either this or a future lifetime.
