Reincarnation: What Happens After Death
What happens when you die?
Is there anything after death? Will you achieve eternal bliss or damnation? Or perhaps, maybe there is nothing at all?
The topic of death is always a touchy topic. Most people fear their own demise and this fear stems from the uncertainty over what will come to pass after they’ve passed away.
However, those who have a strong connection with the spiritual world know that death is not the end. Rather, it’s just a new beginning – just another step in your spiritual evolution.
However, if you believe in reincarnation, then you know the afterlife is literally a new beginning, with a new body and a new life.
Reincarnation, like many spiritual and religious concepts, is grounded in the belief that you are not a body with a soul, but rather, you are a soul with a body. When the body ceases to exist, the soul simply moves on to be reborn into another shell.
So, what happens when this life, the one you are living right now, ends?
Reincarnation: Life Begins Again
Reincarnation means that after you die, your soul gets reborn into another body. It turns out, this isn’t the first time most of us have walked the Earth because we’ve been living countless lives over millions and millions of years!
When you die, the first thing that happens to you is that you slip out of the shell that is your body, realizing that you’re no longer alive. At least, not the way you’re used to.
Then, your soul “rests” for a while — the period varies from soul to soul — as your life gets reviewed, such as all your thoughts, feelings, and actions, the lessons and experiences you gained, along with the good and bad impact you had on the world.
Then you decide a family to be born to, and then you when the timing is right, you are reborn.
Upon being reborn into a new body, your soul simply picks up where it left off and your new mind and body becomes conditioned for carrying out the karmic energy that remains from your past lives.
Karma: Why What You Do Now Matters
Karma is a law in the universe stating that your thoughts, feelings, and actions, release energy into the universe that comes back to you in kind. Good causes good effects, bad causes bad effects.
In reincarnation, karma is carried out over all your lives, which means that the course of your life right now, is determined by your thoughts, feelings, and actions, in your previous lifetimes.
If you dedicate yourself to the less fortunate in this life, you will be showered with abundance in your next life. On the other hand, if you live as a thief, you will be stolen from in your next life.
This means you are currently shaping your next lives right at this moment. This is why it is extremely important to resolve your baggage in this lifetime, so that when you die and then reincarnate, you will no longer have to deal with these issues in your next several lifetimes.
People who make the same mistakes get stuck in a loop of unhappy and negative lives without ever evolving into greater levels of love, light, and wisdom.
Remember, YOU are in control of your own karma and you CAN make yours better, allowing you to look forward to a better future — in this life and the next!
One way to improve your karma is by doing good deeds each day, from smiling at your co-workers, to helping your elderly neighbor mow her lawn. They don’t have to be life-changing actions, but simply being a kind person day in and day out. Helping the less fortunate and expressing gratitude goes a long way into making your karma better.
Here are the things you should avoid:
- Taking things from people forcibly, whether it’s their possessions or their dignity.
When you do any of these things, you set yourself up as the victim of deceit and cruelty in your next life.
Basically, do unto others (and the world) what you would want them to do to and for you.
Signs You’ve Already Reincarnated
Some people, many of them children, actually remember details from their past lives with startling clarity. These memories are often very specific and are usually more fresh and vivid in the minds of the young.
Others do not remember their past lives, but there are signs that you have already lived before.
Déjà vu is one such sign, although it could also be indicative of something else, such as a psychic dream or premonition. Déjà vu is a common experience with reincarnated souls, though, such as feeling where a city you’ve never visited before, seems familiar. Or when you encounter a stranger who comfortably feels like an old friend, it could be because your two souls have already met in a previous life.
Recurring dreams, which include the same faces and events, may also be an indication that you’ve lived before. Instead of regular dreams, these dreams could be actual memories that your subconscious mind is remembering while you’re sleeping.
Intuition is another strong signal of having lived before. When you are particularly intuitive, this might even mean you’re older than most!
Feeling and knowing things instinctively is an example of you tapping into the infinite knowledge and wisdom you’ve gained over your numerous lives in the past. This is why there are young people who are incredibly insightful, often dubbed as old souls by their parents and teachers.
Also, inexplicable trauma could be one of the things you haven’t resolved in a past life. If you have a fear you can’t explain, it might be something that caused you great pain or horror in a previous incarnation.
For example, you might fear swimming, even though you live in the city and have never had a terrible experience with water. Or perhaps in a previous life, you died from drowning or you lost a parent to a shipwreck. If you are afraid of airplanes, you might have been the victim of a crash in the past or fell from a great height.
