Reincarnation 101: Choosing When and How To Come Back
In many institutions of higher learning, a “101” is attached to the end of a subject name (example: History 101) to refer to an introductory course, which is definitive in scope. Taken in this sense, the title of this article Reincarnation 101:Choosing When and How To Come Back will have as its focus, details on what reincarnation is truly about, and what it involves.
Reincarnation was Known to the Ancients
Reincarnation and past lives are not topics which have only sprung up in modern times.
They were topics known since ancient times, in different cultures, and acknowledged as a part of life in many belief systems all over the world.
There’s a theory about why reincarnation has achieved a good foothold in the minds of many people. It seems to be because people’s fear of death and dying is tied up with their fear of the unknown.
I discussed this specific concern in my article titled Is Death Only An Illusion?.
Here’s an excerpt:
Your soul is eternal. The real you never dies.
That’s why death is only an illusion.
You, the real you, which is your soul, doesn’t really die.
Only your human form dies.
The death that many people know of, that is not real.
The so-called “death” that happens is simply a transition; you move from this material plane of existence, to the real world, which is the Spirit World.
Do not believe the illusion that your life ends with death. It is only your human form and material life that ends.
Your soul goes on. There is life after death.
Your soul is eternal. The real you never dies.
Do you find the thought of the eternal quality of your soul comforting?
Do you believe in life after death?
If “yes”, do you know you can come back to this world even after death, again and again... by choice?
Why Would You Choose to Come Back to this World?
Many people often complain about their lives. They complain about their cheating partners, their boss, the quality of their health, the bills they have to pay, the rude salesclerk at one of the shops they frequent, politicians, and so on.
The number of things many people complain about is huge. The list is long.
It’s therefore sensible to wonder why in the world anyone would want to come back and go through life again?
But the thing is, it’s not just “anyone” who wants to live life again on earth. It’s a soul who wants to undergo a human experience again… and again… and again. And the reason is to learn lessons, which would help a soul progress spiritually.
What Kinds of Lessons Need to be Learned?
There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to lessons to be learned by souls.Each soul learns at its own pace, and learns about truths that could help it the most.
For example, one soul may need to learn about speaking the truth, and removing all forms of deceptiveness from its life.
Another soul may need to learn the value of appreciating others sincerely, instead of simply paying lip service to their qualities.
And still another soul may need to learn about the importance of becoming detached from the material world.
Souls learn the lessons they need as individual creatures.
But, souls do not have to learn on their own. In fact, souls learn best and fastest when they are with a group of other souls. This is because every soul needs help from other souls, if they are to actualize lesson learning on earth.
Consequently, souls need to reincarnate and assume a physical body.
Why Do Souls Need to Learn Their Lessons On Earth?
The world is a huge classroom for souls who need to learn. But it is not only here on earth where souls can learn their lessons.
They can also do their learning in the Spirit World, of course. Simply conversing with Spirit Guides and Ascended Masters is already a wonderful education in itself!
Still, reincarnating into a new body, which lives a fresh existence, is important for the spiritual growth of a soul. It’s important because the challenges of living in a physical world can sometimes be overwhelming or demoralizing for a soul.
However, it is those same difficulties, which make for fertile learning. To use an analogy, a toddler learning to walk has to fall and experience standing up again, even if wobbly at first, in order to succeed at walking.
If its parents forever carry around the toddler to spare it from painful falls, the likelihood of the toddler learning to walk becomes small, or even non-existent.
Setting the Scenario and Choosing Your Reincarnated Life
Assume you are a soul in the Spirit World planning, at this very moment, your next reincarnation. Your planning takes place under the guidance of spiritual mentors, also known as your Spirit Guides.
It’s not just you, though, and the Guides, who are involved in planning. Other souls are also consulted. Some souls you already know from a past life. Some souls are new to you.
Whatever lessons you need to learn will necessarily involve other souls and their own reincarnation. This is because no one becomes reincarnated as a grown-up right away. Every reincarnating soul re-enters the material world, or earth, as a baby.
Why does it have to be as a baby?
A Blank Slate to Start Writing On
Reincarnating souls start off as babies because of the nature of a baby – it has no biases or preconceived notions about anything.
It is a blank slate, which a soul can “write on”. Meaning, the baby can grow up in circumstances favorable to the learning of lessons by the soul.
For example, while in the Spirit World, a soul determines it needs to learn the lesson of being charitable.
Discussions are made among the other souls set to reincarnate, along with many Spirit Guides, who are helping these souls come up with their soul scripts.
Let’s assume two choices of a life to live are presented to a soul.
The first option allows the soul to be born as the youngest child into a comfortable, middle class family of 4 siblings, with parents who are attentive and responsible. Everyone in the family is in good health, and for the most part, everyone gets along well with each other. Aside from the occasional bickering among siblings, life in the household flows easily.
The second option allows the soul to be born as the eldest child into a low-income single parent family of soon-to-be 5 siblings, with the youngest child being hard to care for, because of a congenital health problem.
To effectively learn the lesson of charity, which family setting could the soul thrive in as a learner?
Would it be in the first family where things proceed in a routine way nearly everyday?
Or would it be in the second family,which is already faced with many challenges from the very start?
Of course, it would be the second family as the preferred option for having opportunities for cultivating spiritual growth.
A soul eager to learn will choose that family and reincarnate into a life that may be burdened with many hardships. Rising above those hardships, that is what the soul expects to be able to achieve. If not, well there will be other opportunities in other lifetimes, of course.
After all, a soul can always choose when and how to come back.
Everything related to planning takes place in the Spirit World. The actualization of the plans takes place on earth.
However, the success or failure of such kind of planning will only be successful if the Soul Script is followed. If not followed because of the excessive use of free will, then it’s back to the drawing board for the soul.
