At some point in your life, you may have bumped into someone you just met, yet have a feeling of familiarity for this person. Or, you may have unexplained fear or phobia over something.
You may have asked yourself how come you have these eerie feelings. Not finding the answers may have caused you disappointment and confusion.
But by believing or giving a take on the theory of a past life, it may give you a clarity of what’s going on with your life.
A common belief states that our personal characteristics, experiences, or even skills have been closely linked to a life or lives that we have lived previously.
Why a soul has to reincarnate?
Reincarnation is the belief that when we die, our soul is being reborn into another body. While others are skeptical about it, psychotherapist Dr. Brian L. Weiss believed that everyone reincarnates.
According to him, everyone has to reincarnate because of the many lessons that each one of us has to learn: lessons of love, compassion, charity, nonviolence, inner peace, patience, and others. And learning them all in one lifetime is impossible.
Does everybody really reincarnate?
To others, reincarnation is nothing more than a religious concept. Yet, some credible experts dedicated themselves to studying this phenomenon and believed deeply that reincarnation is a genuine experience of all living beings.
One of them is Dr. Ian Stevenson, a former professor of psychiatry at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, who claimed to have found more than 3,000 examples of reincarnation that he shared with his scientific community.
Whether you remember it or not, it might be possible that your soul has reincarnated.
To give you more enlightenment on whether your soul has reincarnated from a past life, here are the 6 clues:
1. Experiencing Deja Vu or a feeling of familiarity involving your other senses.
Dr. Weiss pointed out that Deja Vu is one common sign of a past life. It is a sensation you feel for having met a particular person before or having visited a place that seems familiar to you as if you’ve been there previously.
Similarly, your sense of smell, taste or hearing will arouse you into something familiar. There may be certain smells, tastes or sounds that give you a flashback to another place and time.
2. Being carried away by the intensity of your dreams.
Dreams are not only mere fantasies. Sometimes they show fragments of past life memories that have been deeply locked within us.
When your dreams are so clear and detailed that feels as if you were actually in a specific place with a particular person or persons, you may be experiencing a fragment of your past life.
Having these recurring dreams or dreams with the same theme is an indication that your soul has been reincarnated.
3. Meeting your soulmate.
Soulmates are destined to come into our lives bringing us the lessons we need to learn in this lifetime.
When your soulmate comes, you feel a strong connection that leads to major changes in your life. You easily understand each other because you already have a relationship in the past.
Meeting with your soulmate means you have to complete some unfinished business. It may be a lesson that each of you has to learn or a mission that only the two of you can accomplish together.
But a soulmate isn’t only limited to one person. It is necessary that you meet a lot of them including your soul group to come together and do your specific purpose.
4. Having memories that never actually happened in your current life.
There is a nice story that clearly illustrates this. It goes like this:
Since she was a child, Margot had this memory of herself dining in a restaurant in Los Angeles called Coles. She could give details of what she ordered, how it tasted, and who she was with.
Only that Margot lives in New York and had never been to Coles nor in any part of Los Angeles. But the way she remembers the experience was incredible.
If you have a similar experience, then it might be that you have lived a past life. Remembering vividly experiences or places that don’t jive with your current life is a sure sign that your soul has reincarnated.
5. Having sudden visions.
Regression therapy is a process that helps someone in discovering reincarnation. If you want to go through this process, Dr. Weiss can help you explore your past lives using regression therapy.
While in a deep meditative state through this method, sudden visions may surprise you. Don’t take them for granted though, it may be giving you clues leading to your past life.
In the visions, you may find yourself in an unfamiliar body, in an unfamiliar place.
But having a sudden vision is not only limited to regression therapy. It’s also possible to experience them in your conscious state.
Having these brief glimpses indicates reincarnation from a past life.
6. Feeling other people’s emotions.
Most likely, a reincarnated soul is an empath. This gives them the extra sensitivity to feel and absorb the feelings and physical symptoms of others.
When in crowded places, they feel confused and oppressed because they couldn’t differentiate their own emotions from that which they have absorbed.
If these sensitivities and emotions resonate with you, then you are an empath forming soulful connections with other living beings.
Being an empath is a sign that your soul has reincarnated many times, becoming more sensitive as your life accumulates.
