It is certain that there is life after life, but for one to actually find out how many times he has made appearance on earth and what type of creature was he at each existence, there must be procedures or processes through which one can discover that, can you help me know the best procedure. Thank you.

  • I have a LOT of different dreams ie: ring w/ Ghengchicild by a khan, fighting in the civil war, as a sherriff in the old west, and someone in ancient times. I was told by a psychic I was one of the first souls to leave the guf. A phsychiatrist hypnotized me and said I spoke in a language so old he thought I was possessed because I was in his words ‘savage’. I am a really good with the sword, axe, hammer, tomahawk axe and bow; and I’ve never had a formal lesson in any!

  • I believe in reincarnation. And I think there might be a way ti find out. I dont know for sure. I just over heard my mom talking to her friend about knowing how many times you have been on Earth. Also do you people realize that not everyone follows god. Just cause god didnt say it doesnt mean it isnt true. I mean you never know. I also believe in god but still guys. Did he ask what god said? No.

  • I do believe in reincarnation (though I would disagree that *any* type of spiritual belief can be “certain”), but I think it’s important to ask yourself why you want to know about your past lives. 🙂

    IMO the only real benefit of finding out info from your past lives is to help you with issues you’re having in the current life. There are past life regressionists, and there are even some open-minded psychologists who will do this kind of thing.

    But I feel the information they give is purely symbolic and archetypal: you’re not likely to get factual information, though it can happen. Unless you get details that can be verified through historical record, and you truly had no other way of knowing that info, then what you’re getting is most likely a symbolic story.

    And that’s fine. 🙂 Many people have been helped by past life stories that help them to understand, work through and in some cases even heal long-standing phobias and such.

    But if you’re just into the idea out of ego-driven curiousity, ie: “OMG what if I was someone really famous???!!!” the there’s really no point to it. I also don’t believe that we reincarnate as anything other than human.

  • I believe strongly in reincarnation because I have memories of past lives. I do not know how you can discover how many lives you have had though. My first memory was clear and out of the blue. Other memories were triggered by past life regressions.
    I do not believe that a human spirit can become any other ‘creature’…only another human being. For the person who listed the population, I believe we have a choice as to whether or not we come back. I believe all spirits were created in the beginning, some choosing to incarnate and some choosing to serve God on the other side. Many did not choose to incarnate until ‘later’ and that is why we don’t have an even number through out history. There are many dark spirits who recycle to provide others with obstacles and negativity in order to perfect.
    For compelling evidence of reincarnation, read “Soul Survivor” by Bruce and Andrea Leininger.

  • It is certain that there is life after life? No it’s not – there is zero evidence for reincarnation, no matter how much you’d like it to be true.

    That said, if you want to know how many times you have been here before, for a modest sum of money there are plenty of people (read, scam artists) that are able to tell you. None of what they say will be true, but some suckers will believe, and pay, for anything.

  • 1. It is not certain that there is life and life.
    2. Because of statement 1, reincarnation is unprovable.
    3. You cannot find out how many times you’ve been to earth.
    4. It was a system of control designed to promote proper behavior, because who wants to come back as a slug or cockroach?

  • Reincarnation is not a truth from the Bible, resurrection IS.

    You are discussing an eastern religious concept that existed before Christ was here . . . He did not teach it at all and neither did His true followers.

    I have, that being said, saw a reincarnation of a dead chicken come back as a hot chicken dinner!!!!

  • Does the Bible contain evidence of belief in reincarnation?
    Does Matthew 17:12, 13 reflect a belief in reincarnation?
    Matt. 17:12, 13: “[Jesus said:] ‘Elijah has already come and they did not recognize him but did with him the things they wanted. In this way also the Son of man is destined to suffer at their hands.’ Then the disciples perceived that he spoke to them about John the Baptist.”
    Did this mean that John the Baptist was a reincarnated Elijah? When Jewish priests asked John, “Are you Elijah?” he said, “I am not.” (John 1:21) What, then, did Jesus mean? As Jehovah’s angel foretold, John went before Jehovah’s Messiah “with Elijah’s spirit and power, to turn back the hearts of fathers to children and the disobedient ones to the practical wisdom of righteous ones, to get ready for Jehovah a prepared people.” (Luke 1:17) So John the Baptist was fulfilling prophecy by doing a work like that of the prophet Elijah.—Mal. 4:5, 6.
    Is reincarnation indicated by the account at John 9:1, 2?
    John 9:1, 2: “Now as he [Jesus] was passing along he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him: ‘Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, so that he was born blind?’”
    Is it possible that these disciples had been influenced by the belief of the Jewish Pharisees, who said that “the souls of good men only are removed into other bodies”? (Wars of the Jews, Josephus, Book II, chap. VIII, par. 14) It is not likely, since their question does not imply that they thought he was a ‘good man.’ It is more likely that as Jesus’ disciples they believed the Scriptures and knew that the soul dies. Yet, since even a baby in the womb has life and was conceived in sin, they may have wondered whether such an unborn child could have sinned, resulting in his blindness. In any event, Jesus’ answer did not support either reincarnation or the idea that a child yet in its mother’s womb sins before birth. Jesus himself answered: “Neither this man sinned nor his parents.” (John 9:3) Jesus knew that, because we are offspring of Adam, there is an inheritance of human defects and imperfections. Using the situation to magnify God, Jesus healed the blind man.
    Does the Bible’s teaching about the soul and death allow for reincarnation?
    Genesis 2:7 states: “Jehovah God proceeded to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man came to be a living soul.” Notice that the man himself was the soul; the soul was not immaterial, separate and distinct from the body. “The soul that is sinning—it itself will die.” (Ezek. 18:4, 20) And a deceased person is referred to as a “dead soul.” (Num. 6:6) At death, “his spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; in that day his thoughts do perish.” (Ps. 146:4) So when someone dies, the complete person is dead; there is nothing that remains alive and that could pass into another body. (For further details, see the main headings “Soul” and “Death.”)
    Eccl. 3:19: “There is an eventuality as respects the sons of mankind and an eventuality as respects the beast, and they have the same eventuality. As the one dies, so the other dies.” (As in the case of humans, nothing survives at the death of an animal. There is nothing that can experience rebirth in another body.)
    Eccl. 9:10: “All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in Sheol, the place to which you are going.” (It is not into another body but into Sheol, the common grave of mankind, that the dead go.)

    According to the Bible, the soul is the complete person. Even though a person may have done bad things in the past, if he repents and changes his ways, Jehovah God will forgive him. (Ps. 103:12, 13) When a person dies, nothing survives. Death is like a deep, dreamless sleep. There will be a resurrection of the dead. This is not a reincarnation but a bringing back to life of the same personality. (Acts 24:15) For most people, the resurrection will be to life on earth. It will take place after God brings the present wicked system to its end. Sickness, suffering, even the necessity to die, will become things of the past. (Dan. 2:44; Rev. 21:3, 4) Does such a hope sound like something about which you would like to learn more, to examine the reasons for confidence in it?
