Resources on Reincarnation

Reincarnation is a fascinating concept. Rooted in Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, and Taoism, reincarnation refers to the belief or idea that a dead person who has passed away in the present life can be reborn in a future life. In western cultures, reincarnation is mentioned in some ancient Greek classics, and it’s a central principle in ancient Egyptian religion, Native American tradition, Norse mythology, Naturalism, Anthroposophy, Theosophy, Scientology, and the New Age movement. Closely associated with reincarnation is the concept of karma which refers to an “action” or “deed,” affecting the chain of cause and effect. Good actions or deeds will lead to a beneficial reincarnation. It explains why some people are born into a more blessed environment while others are born into a less fortunate existence. Karma is the fruit of past lives and the seed of future lives. Henry Ford believed that he had lived many past lives, and that he fought in the Battle of Gettysburg, dying in service. In the theory of reincarnation, the spirit is a permanent entity that gets reborn for unspecified cycles of existence. Upon death, the spirit enters into the astral plane, which can best be described as the place between heaven and earth. Accordingly, the spirit will go to heaven after it attains actualization or enlightenment. Though reincarnation is yet to be proven or unproven, there is a therapeutic method known as past life regression therapy whereby the patient is hypnotized to recall deep emotions or experiences from their past lives to heal present problems.
