Reincarnation is the process that provides everyone with the opportunities to experience what a soul needs or wants to experience within each different lifetime experience.
The basic concept is that each living person at each physical incarnation has a separate energy anatomy that is distinct from the physical body. The effect of this energy body is to give life to the physical.
Each life builds on each other and works in concert with the souls other life experiences. A soul will assess and evaluate the life experience he/she needs and start planning their next incarnation on the physical plane. She will determine what the priorities are she wants to experience and then evaluate which options on the physical plane will most likely provide those opportunities and experiences.
Choosing a Physical Body
A soul who desires to enter the physical body may choose a body that has predisposed to certain physical traits. She may also choose certain social or societal features that will help her obtain the life experience she desires. But physical abilities for a large part are determined by the gene pool of her parents, and social and economic ability are determined by the society. Therefore, if a person has a talent of physical ability to perform or learn or do something on the physical level, this comes from the physical body. The obvious example of this is physical strength, but other talents are also developed through this manner.
Soul Age Will Impact What and How We Experience Things
Just as we have different types of learnings as we physically age, so too, are there different things learned and experienced based on the age of the soul. The soul will perceive different life experiences differently based on her prior physical life experiences and soul age. The result is, the perception of events will be based on her souls age and maturity.
Another thing that will impact her life on the earth are the laws of the universe, such as balance and harmony. We see this play out in a life when one has accrued wrong doings in former physical life experiences; they bring that negative energy with them and it affects the life, the flow, and spiritual countenance of a person throughout their life. If one has done wrongs and misdeeds in previous life experiences, those karmic debts are carried forward with a soul from life, to life, to life, until the debt gets repaid. The debt remains and is forever carried until the soul is able to repay each and every karmic responsibility acquired.
One must pay off those karmic debts in some way during a physical life experience. Paying back those karmic debts can be programmed into the physical existence. This allows opportunities to be programmed into the physical existence to meet and interact with certain people &/or do good deeds in order to repay those debts.
The paying off the karmic debts will remove the baggage and negative energy one accumulates and carries with them through their lifetimes and will then restore the balance and harmony within the soul.
Planning A Life Experience
A person will assess and evaluate the life experience she desires and needs. She will then start planning her incarnation on the physical plane. She will determine her priorities of what she wants to accomplish and experience, and then evaluate which options on the physical plane will most likely provide her those opportunities and experiences.
The soul chooses the type of parent or the specific parents desired, the gender, the soul physical body, which will be predisposed to certain physical characteristics, along with choosing certain social circumstances. All of these factors will help that obtain the life experience she desires.
When a person incarnates on the earth, he/she comes equipped with all the physical uniqueness designed for the journey they hoped to have.
Choosing Different Personality Traits
The soul will also select different personality traits that come with them when they are born. These personality traits are sometimes called “overleaves” and they can help obtain the life experiences she seeks on the physical earth. The overleaves will contribute to giving the soul the uniqueness and drivers to help her achieve her life objectives. The overleaves include properties known as the goal, mode, attitude, center, and chief feature. The goal influences what we do; the mode, how we do it; the attitude, why we do it; the center, the part of self from which we do it; and the chief feature is what tends to block or distort our doing. These overleaves become almost like internal switches in us that help trigger us to move our life incarnation in a certain manner, or direction, or behavior.
Who You Are in Large Part Was Decided Before You Were Born
Many will live lives that may seem plain and ordinary and others will live lives that seem to impact greatly, but much of your life was programed and decided by you before you were even born. Some will desire notoriety more than others, and others will have chosen a more subtle approach so they can learn and develop in a more serene and secure manner. There are advantages and drawback to each approach. For example, the one who has more flash and notoriety, will generally create much Karma; either good or bad. And because of the way or magnitude of the impact made this karma is usually in very large doses (or ahead). On the other hand, this impact can generally help other souls and therefore the karma is positive and can speed the process of returning to the Tao. So as a rule, those who desire the big splash progress faster but enjoy less. Those who progress more slowly develop deeper understanding and insights but require many multiple lives on the same level to achieve the impact of one life.
NonPhysical Tools to Help Guide the Soul
To help a soul in their life journey on the physical plane, there are nonphysical communication tools available to help guide you and help prompt you to go in the life path you planned. For example
- Feelings. Feelings are set up to be the primary communication method to help a soul be guided on their physical path and journey.
- Persistent Desires. Persistent desires have been instilled with the soul to help lead them and to assure they journey down certain paths they set up before they were born.
- Nonphysical Messages. The nonphysical soul can tune into other types of nonphysical (or spiritual) communication, such as promptings, dreams, impressions, telepathy, meditations, etc. These are different types of communication tools readily available to assist a soul who desires more direct contact with the astral plane. These types of spiritual communication mechanisms can help ease and improve the physical experience and help assure the souls life purpose is fully completed.
- Your Higher Self. Your Higher Self has ALL the information about who you are, what you planned to get out of this life, and why. This resource on the astral plane knows and understands you completely and can help you understand yourself as well as help guide you in your life in this incarnation.
- Spiritual Guide. Many souls will have made pre-arrangements to have Spiritual Guides help watch over and guide or assist as needed during their physical experience.
