Your Past Lives, Karma and Spirituality

Most of what we do in this lifetime to express our spiritual nature is built on many past lives.

We have lives where our karma is all about learning and practising a spiritual skill and  developing our consciousness. In some past lives we may have had the karma to prepare our chakras, aura and bodies, then learn forms of healing. We may, lifetime after lifetime, have learned how to use specific chakras such as the third eye, or other chakras we would use in later lifetimes.

These past lives can have been way back, further than Altlantean root race times, and in Lemurian  root race times. Some of the lives can have been in time periods we know something about.

If you are fairly good or very good at meditation without any props (such as chemicals or music) it is likely you would have had one or more past-lives as a Buddhist, who were experts at meditation, the mind and what could be done with the mind. Similarly, you could have had past lives in India with it’s remarkable ground energy, practising meditation techniques drawing on the rich spiritual heritage there of Avataric incarnations of Ram and Krishna and other teachings in the Hindu body of spiritual knowledge.

Some of the more advanced knowledge would have been very technical and complex, requiring a lot of study and practice.

People who are drawn to Atlantean energy techniques would have had at least one lifetime in that time period in the area of the world that was influenced by that culture.

Throughout human history going way back there have been so many cultures around the world for people to have had past lives in, that were beacons of spirituality. There were Shamanic traditions in Europe, Asia and the Americas. (A long time ago what is now Russia and Alaska were joined so people and animals could travel and migrate.) People who like herbs, for medicinal use, for meditation, astral travel and meditation would have had lifetimes to build up knowledge and abilities. These and other lifetimes would be planned out on the inner planes between physical lives.

There are so many places in the world where it was possible to learn to use the body and chakras and aura for healing. A clue to Lemurian energy handling techniques comes from massage techniques and exercises done before massage in the huna tradition found in Hawaii. This knowledge extended throughout Polynesia (and there is a lot more to it than what is mentioned here). Other places where people could incarnate in past lives to learn how to use energy and heal would include China, in the Taoist tradition, in the Muslim Sufi traditions (think of the poets Rumi and Hafiz), in the Celtic Druid religion in the British Isles (very deep spiritual knowledge and think of Stonehenge and other stone circles). People could have had past lives in early Christian communities before the corruption at the centre of the Roman Catholic church, and in some Orthodox communities (knew a lot about breathing techniques).  The Ancient Egyptian culture was a place where people learnt about using energy, after the Atlantean period. People may also have had past lives learning Jewish mysticism and practising spirituality based on Kabbalah. I really don’t know much about spirituality in Africa, other than there must have been some traditions and teachings as there are still witch doctors and there was great skill with herbs.

What it would have been like to have one or more past lives in a culture such as the Native American culture before the destructive arrival of Europeans. The cultures had a deep spirituality which guided life and the relationship with Nature. There are very likely to be people alive today who did have past lives in these cultures.

The interests and skills that spiritual people have who are alive now can sometimes but not always give a clue to past lives of a spiritual nature and the kind of religions and spiritual practices they have been involved in. All that training got them to the point they are now at.

How your karma and the Law of Opposites helps you grow

We reincarnate time and time again to experience life and grow in consciousness and understanding. Karma gives us experiences in Life through which our souls can learn and develop.

There are some spiritual laws that show up in karma that people have in a particular lifetime. The spiritual aim of the game of life is to get through the allotted karma for that life. One law is the Law of Saturation.  This means that a person gets saturated with one type of situation or experience in their life repeatedly until the soul is saturated with it. Or they may have as many lives as is required of a certain type of experience. For instance, a person can have quite a few lives (say, thirty or more) where they get to look after one particular person and develop their love and their heart centre. Once the person/soul has had enough then they move onto different karma with different situations happening.

Another law that applies a lot to karma is the Law of Opposites. This law often occurs in reincarnation. As an example, in one lifetime a soul can be in a female body, in the next lifetime the soul will be in a male body.

Another example, in one lifetime the soul can be in a personality that is very wealthy. In the next lifetime the soul can be in an existence where it experiences poverty. (The karma is different if a person has used their wealth for the benefit of others rather than being selfish). The Law of Opposites balances things out nicely, and to the soul it is all experience to learn from. That doesn’t mean to say that the personality enjoys the experience, as their attitudes and opinion of what they are going through depends on what the personality mind is like. If they have a “glass half-full” kind of mind, they will enjoy it.

Yet another example, a  person/soul can be an aggressor one lifetime and a victim in a future lifetime, quite likely with the same soul. Souls have tended to come into creation in soul families so a soul is likely to have come across the same souls repeatedly, but in different circumstances (friend, enemy, brother, sister, parent, child and so on). On the inner planes, a higher aspect of ourselves will arranging who comes down to do what and with whom. What goes on down here in creation is our karma being worked out with our fellow souls being involved in the goings-on as well.

The Law of Opposites can show up in other ways in the kind of lifetimes we have. Souls have lifetimes where they are linked to the dark lodge, where they learn about and experience lives getting up to no good. On the opposite, souls have lifetimes being linked to the white lodge, and doing good. The karma gets balanced out – usually.

Souls have lives where they are brilliantly clever, and lives where they are slow thinking. They have lives where the soul experiences what it is like to be physically beautiful and lives where they are not physically beautiful.

Where a soul has hurt or killed others in one or more previous lives, in other lives they do the opposite, in a healing capacity or saving lives, perhaps sacrificing their own lives to do so. In these ways, karmic debts are paid.

Souls will have lives where they are not interested in spirituality, and lives where they are (like this one if you are reading this).

There are many other examples of the rich variety of experiences and lives that the Law of opposites generates. What has been mentioned above is only a small part of what is possible, and doesn’t even include examples of lives a soul will experience in the mineral, plant or animal kingdoms.

Reincarnation, karma, gender and sexuality

At this moment in time issues to do with being female and being male, and sexuality are important as a lot of spiritual energy is flowing in to move them forward (which usually means a bit of a shakedown and a lot of karma and emotions gone through until a new balance is achieved). Gender and sexuality from a reincarnation point of view can give us a new perspective:

In human lifetimes, souls take on lives with different genders so that different karma can be worked on. The spiritual law of opposites can apply so that a male (genetically) will next life have a female (genetically) lifetime. A female will have a next lifetime as a male. This way a soul has experience as each sex, and of what it means to be that sex.  A soul will experience lifetimes where their physical anatomy is atypical of male or female anatomy.

A soul will also have lifetimes experiencing different sexualities, and lifetimes where they feel they are female in a male body, and a male in a female body, and so on, along with feeling male in a male body, and female in a female body. To the soul, this is all experience over the many, many lifetimes.

What would it be like if you are female now and suddenly remembered how you were as a male? Or how about if you are male now and remembered how you were, what life was like in a previous female life?

Usually people don’t get to remember their past lives or feel them. When a soul incarnates there is a process where the soul enters the energy field around the planet through the ring-pass-not. When the soul goes through this there is a forgetting, an amnesia so that any information that would interfere with this life being lived afresh is blocked. Because of this we don’t get to remember what it is like to be a female or be a male, or to have a specific sexuality or a lifetime when sexuality wasn’t important to us.

There is a lot in here if you read in between the lines that can be food for thought.
