I believe & hold to the idea that reincarnation is true; to such a degree that I see it as a fact & know it to be true.

Growing up I used to think that maybe we progressed through an evolution of the soul through the mineral, vegetable, animal & then human kingdoms. Maybe we do?

I kind of see it more now that there are different parts or different Kingdoms in Creation - Different Evolutionary paths - Angles; Humanoid Type, Animal, Nature, Animals etc etc etc.

Maybe angles can incarnate as humans sometimes?

Maybe we can switch species & realms into which we incarnate - the Hindu's & certain Buddhist beliefs would hold true that we can.

There is also the question of minion spirits - Animals that have incarnated in human bodies; before the correct time for transition (there are a lot of different & very interesting ideas around this idea).

I've read a great deal on this subject - a lot of web sites, & a lot of books. All the books by Brain Weiss, & all the books by Dr Michael Newton; including many others.

This is not about any one soul being above, greater or better than another - all souls young & old are of equal worth. I do however very strongly hold to the idea; as fact; that souls vary often greatly in age, experience & development. Yes; a soul is created. An incarational path may well take in thousands; most likely hundreds of thousands; if not millions of separate incarnations in it's Journey through incarnation. Quite an idea isn't it when placed into perspective.

An Old Soul does not necessarily denote an advanced, wise or experienced soul - rates of learning & development vary. A younger soul may well have chosen a faster incarnational development path.

This is simply a very brief outline of things - There are volumes & volumes of works & lifetimes of study that have been undertaken on this subject. Concerning reincarnation; the Souls Journey, Ascension, The Spirit World, & all associated subjects.

This is a subject that has provided me with; & still provides endless fascination. & I learn more about it all the time. It is a subject that is truly vast in scope & subject matter; & truly massive in implication.

If it is a subject that you are unfamiliar with; or one that you haven't really considered - I'd highly recommend that it's something worthy of investigation. There is a wealth of material & knowledge available on this matter.

There is a Great Difference between Knowing & thinking.

Isn't this THE Question - Who Am I? You know what I'm talking about.

A very good friend of mine died when I was 15 - That was the catalyst that sent me out of control (although there are issues of trauma that I think played a part that go back far further). Much later on I was with my grandmother when she died; & it was a beautiful experience - I suppose that I'd resolved a lot of stuff by then.

I was consumed in the past about the questions as to - Who am I? Why am I here? Where is here? What is the meaning of it all? Etc etc etc. Totally consumed by the question as to the nature of the self.

I'm not bothered by such questions to the same degree today - The nature of the self cannot be categorised - needless to say that I'm a spiritual Being having a Human Experience. :)

Another interesting aspect of reincarnation is the time individuated souls spend in the astral plane. A soul can spend a thousand years in the astral plane before coming back or moving on to the causal. I don't know if anyone wants to revive an old thread ??

Almost all the inter life research & vast majority of books on the spirit worlds appears to primarily focus on the Astral. It's said that most souls return to the higher astral/summer lands - also is where the Akashic records/life books, soul groups, & council of elders reside.

Some souls are said to become stuck on lower astral levels for some time, & some souls become earth bound.

Interesting that some other writings discuss a lot of other 'levels/realms, above the astral.

The 7 primary (created) levels are shown here -

Energy Reality: The 7 Primary Levels of Energy of Our Reality

The Book 'Worlds Beyond Death' by Grant Pealer gives a view of the entire Cosmology. Well worth a read.

Many writings discuss 7 bodies/initiations.

I would like to read the descriptions of the various planes in the above link but the text is too tiny to see how these descriptions compare to Anatomy of Consciousness. I suspect they are quite similar. I've had a few, exactly three, experiences of my astral body in my 59.5 years of life.

[Interview in Link]

https://batgap.com/jurgen-ziewe

Jurgen Ziewe has been following a strict regime of meditation since 1969. In 1973, after a six month stint of intensive meditation for up to five hours a day, he decided to abandon the practice completely, being disappointed with the lack of progress and some negative side effects. Then one day out of the blue, at breakfast, he spontaneously experienced a total dissociation from his body and entered a state of what he described as one of absolute clarity. After this he continued his meditation practice, but now paying homage to the experience with more humility than before. He directly attributes the spontaneous Out-of-body experiences that followed for the next forty years, to this powerful experience of consciousness singularity.

Jurgen has spent hundreds of hours, mostly in a super waking awareness in these out-of-body states, which frequently lasted several hours at a time. He soon mapped out what he considered to be the multidimensional reality man inhabits after physical death.

On one of these non-physical excursions he was met by a Chinese Master who put him through an intensive training process in order for him to reach much higher states of consciousness. In 1980, on one of these OBE journeys, he was taken once more into a state of absolute clarity. This and other significant experiences were chronicled in his diaries and later published in his books, “Multidimensional Man” in 2008 and “Vistas of Infinity” in 2015, by which time he had experienced another singularity event on a solitary mountain retreat, later published in his book, “The Ten Minute Moment”.

Jurgen sees himself as a reporter not as a teacher. His down-to-earth narrative has attracted the attention from the science community and he has recently contributed a chapter to a science publication entitled, “Consciousness Beyond The Body” by Alexander de Foe, where he explores the nature of nonphysical consciousness, in collaboration with other experiencers.

In his working life Jurgen Ziewe is a sought after commercial illustrator with a global clientele. Using the latest CG technology of the film industry has allowed him to document his experiences in alternate realities in a very visual format. His graphic testimonies have been likened to those of Swedenborg and his accounts of the higher spiritual realms give a vivid insight into the infinite strata of human consciousness which is rarely reported in such depth and detail.

Everyone wants to vacation in the Bahamas. I'd rather get out of this body and go to the Astral dimension. There is no pain there. There is no sedation there. Let's go. :)

I remember Robert Monroe now that I googled him. He tinkered with sound.

I was given a meditation method August 1, 1983 which is now my new birthday and I was instructed to duplicate the experience but have not been able to. It is not the fault of the path but mine entirely.

It's not easy,
And you have to be prepared for anything.
There are a lot of dark spirits out there.
A friends ex partner hasn't been the same since she did it a few years ago.
I'm not aloud to,
Don't ask me how I know,
I just do.
