Due to my absence I want to share a 2 part series about reincarnation with you which I published last year in November. I hope you like it:
November in Central Europe is the month we remember our deceased loved ones. November 1st therefore is a holiday. According to it the season changes: the nights are getting longer, the trees are mostly loosing their last leaves, it is getting colder and we have a lot of fog over here. I thought this would be a fitting time for such a post in order to bring a little light into this season.
Reincarnation is a very wide ranged topic and of course I don’t know all the answers. But there are segments which not only feel true to me but which are even like a knowing or kind of memory. This subject is also most present throughout my book I’m Free .
Some people say that we are reincarnating in order to get enlightened, since we are the fallen angels that have to find their way back to God. Once enlightened, they say, we don’t need to incarnate anymore. Others say, whatever we are struggling with in this life is a consequence of a former life. Another statement is, that we have to incarnate in every life form (mineral, plant, animal) before we were ready for a human experience. And also there is the statement that we have to experience everything ourselves before we don’t need to incarnate anymore. This would include being a murder, a victim, a mother, a father, a boss, a slave, suffering, bathing in money,… simply everything that can be experienced – and that’s a lot! The Buddhists say that if you behaved in a certain bad way, you have to incarnate in a lower level the next time. It means, you will be one of the poor people, born in a harder environment, or even get back to the animal state. If you behaved well then you will reach a higher level until you end Samsara (the never-ending circle of birth and death) and enter Nirvana.
I want to tell you, how I feel about reincarnation and I try to keep it simple. The reason we incarnate first and foremost is to experience our spiritual existence in a different way. We want to feel, who we are, see, who we are, and share, who we are. But most of all we want to remember who we really are. As long as we live in the non-physical realm we know about our light, we feel the love and the inexhaustible never ending energy we are. But after a while only knowing this is not sufficient anymore. We know it in theory but want to feel it. Neale Donald Walsch put it great in a workshop I joined. He said: “What is all the knowledge of sex of a use, if you cannot try it out and feel how it really is?” Arriving in this body we forget, who we really are. And throughout our physical life time we make experience over experience which gives us hints and insights. Getting such an Aha is like growing out of your shell and feeling like new-born. You think that life has just begun because you found out that what you believed before about life and yourself was a big misunderstanding. When I found out that I don’t need to accept what others want me to do, I was walking on clouds for a week.
Look at this picture: It is summer and noon time. You stand outside in the hot sun and you lighten up a candle. It is nice, yes, but the effect is pretty poor. Now think of a dark and cold winter’s night when lightning up the candle. Do you recognize the difference? Do you FEEL the difference? You are a candle and in order to remember your light, you have to see yourself surrounded by darkness. That’s the only way to experience your powerful source! That’s why we have to go through hard times in order to feel our strength and develop abilities or attitudes that are lying dormant within us. What it is you want to discover was set by you before the incarnation. (Now you get an idea why we all have different goals and purposes.) Once you have discovered a part of your light, you will never drift back to the old misunderstanding. You have not only grown happier but also a lot stronger and wiser. That’s why older people often get quiet, more tolerant, and a lot more satisfied with the small wonders in life. They see the light in themselves and in everything, they get back to the basics, and what really matters in life.
Also in a physical body we can make things visible and touchable. We ourselves can touch, smell, taste, enjoy physical comfort. We also can feel emotions like anger, greed, jealousy, rage, hate, bondage, frustration. And of course the opposite like happiness, optimism, curiosity, freedom, health, tolerance, love,, compassion, helpfulness, gratitude. And this is the reason why we choose earth. Here we are in a world of opposites. We learn out of opposites what we want and what we don’t want. We need to know what’s cold in order to appreciate the warmth. And as I said: We need to know darkness in order to cherish our own light. Duality is the important tool down her in order to learn the lessons, collect wisdom, and make the experiences we wished for,before we came into this body.
In my next post about reincarnation I will write about the mystic word “karma” which is so misused!
In Love and Light!
It is Easter Sunday, Spring is showing up more and more on the northern part of the globe, and our feelings are starting to bloom according to nature. Today I was looking for a song that meets this expression of a new beginning, of feeling ourselves in a new way, of a breakthrough within ourselves… A song that says THIS IS ME and I am perfect the way I am. From now on there is no hiding of my light but shining it out into the world. I am who I am! That’s my power, that’s my gift and whoever wants a piece: feel free to take it. Read more ›
Happiness felt, lost, and regained, has the bigger claws than never lost.
All my life I carried along so many dreams, wishes, and longings. But either I wasn’t able for some reasons to go for them, or I denied them to myself out of fear and a lack of self-esteem. Whenever finally things seemed to manifest or miraculously fall into place I was overwhelmed that I may get it, experience it, enjoy it, have it in my life although I already might have accepted the fact to never get certain things or to never get that far. When it happened the flame inside of me has become a bonfire. Read more ›
I need to share this spontaneously. Listen to this 9-year-old girl. I am taught in classic singing and I thought I was good. I even won both contests I participated. But when I hear this girl singing… She is mind-blowing!!! Read more ›
On March 16 1990 one of the closest persons to me passed away . my beloved grandfather. I just noticed that this is already 25 years ago. He died with only 62 years. I was his treasure and next to my mom his most important person in life. And so he was to me. No person ever dedicated himself ever that much to me. At least to me it felt like that. He was funny, understanding, experienced… Read more ›
