Do you believe in reincarnation?

Recommended Posts

Guest SnowCat

So, for some reason I've always believed in reincarnation, even though I was born in a christian family. I believe that the soul keeps reincarnating until it has experienced and learned everything possible on Earth. I also believe that sometimes the soul doesn't entirely lose connection with their past lives and they affect our current lives. I think this is the case with transgendered people - in their past life they were born as the opposite sex. For example, transmen were born male in their past live and transwomen were born female in their past life and those feelings and way of thinking for some reason remain unchanged in our curret lives. What is your opinion on this? Do you believe there is something like that?

Yes, I definitely believe in reincarnation, and since I am a Norse shaman (Seidberendr in ON) I have had some experience with it. The soul or spirit has many components, some or all may return to the middle realm (ON Midgard) in which we currently reside; or not. It is a complex subject worthy of many theological discussions and dissertations. I have read a few. Too complex a subject for these forums, and very, very hard to describe in human language terms in any case. I do better when trying to explain it in person, but even then it is hard. It is definitely possible to change sex from one life to the next, and it does sometimes happen. In any case, to answer the question regarding whether transexuals were of the other sex in their most recent life; it could be that it is sometimes the case, but I am not certain if it is always. Not very definitive, sorry. I don't remember (I have blocked it out) my most recent previous life, and so I don't even know if it is true for me. Just the perspective of someone from another faith.

hugs,

Stephanie

Oh, for sure. My whole family (for the most part) believes in reincarnation and we're all Christian/Catholic (for the most part). My mother and I always laugh because we can definitely tell one of our cats has "never been a cat before". Some of my friends and I feel as if we've ALWAYS known certain things, like life lessons, and we don't know how we came to know them. My bestfriend and I have come to terms with the fact our souls are just always gonna keep meeting up whether we like it or not. Hahah And I have strange feelings that I've been through stuff that I know I have not. For example: I was watching a movie where a man was holding on for life on the edge of a building. And, even as a child, I could feel "my body" remembering doing just that.

As far as it having to do with gender identity, I can see that. I think I've been around too long to know if was man or woman more, though. I honestly think I was an animal more times than human, so what do I know. XD

A friend once theorized that maybe we aren't "reincarnated" so much as we are given subtle memories and thoughts of our ancestors. Which I think is a neat thought, too. If that has any truth, maybe we have alot of male ancestors guiding us somehow?? I dunno. I feel like I hear my grandma too much for that to be 100%.

Don't know if I believe in reincarnation. Possibly.

I do feel that my soul is Female though.

It has already been scientifically proven that transwomen have female brains.

(Un)fortunately the soul is a different matter. ;)

My understanding Snow, is that we are all built from the same material.

Imagine this, you have all of the colours of a rainbow in bins of lego pieces. Then you take 26 of each piece and you construct a human. Now, do this until all of the lego pieces from each bin are gone. now deconstruct a human, and place their pieces in a bin. repeat until all the bins are full again. You will now have a ton of different colours in each bin. Now keep constructing, and you'll eventually have two that are exactly, or close, to having the same pieces. Those two are meant to be together, which contributes to my "soul mate" theory.

God Bless,

Natalya <3

When I was a child, I built up a spiritual belief that there was a mirror world that souls went back and forth between, so you weren't immediately reincarnated here but incarnated in the other world and so on.

Now, I'm not sure. I have a fairly animistic spirituality, but I'm not sure about what I consider to be souls, if they're something that can be transferred or not.

the question is if you are reincarnated do you know you are. me personally i can go to old buildings and places and feel like im in the time they were built. sometimes i feel that like has been said you are reincarnated into the opposite gender. when i admitted i had a problem and it was dramatic, my feelings were why is the body wrong,this isnt right what happened. i do belive i may have been reincarnated but it had a long battle with the host body finally wining.

For me, there are so many reports of children who inexplicably know things about other unrelated dead people's lives that it's very difficult not to see reincarnation as the explanation.

I also really like the idea, and it has more in common with the eastern schools of thought which science has shown have a least some degree of legitimacy.

Personally I really hope that it exists and that it's possible because as much as I want this life to work out, i f*ing want to come back and get to live in a body that I never have to feel is so awful and get to be taught and experience all the things I have to learn now as a kid.

We wouldn't know who we were if we were reincarnated. There are glitches though, so I believe that's where the sense of "deja vu" comes from. The "lego pieces" also supports the "finding your other half" and when you find things in common with other people.

God Bless

I believe in this, and see it as a reason (one of many!) as to how a trans person can be born. Personally, I go with other explanations in the spiritual realm as for why I am the way I am.

      If you are not using it, you could try the remover for sensitive skin. I also find it useful to use moisturiser after cleaning too as the cleaner will remove natural oils. Just avoid the eyes themselves. Too much cleaner, even soap, is bad for skin. Except for when removing makeup I seldom use anything more than plain water to rinse my face and mosturise at least a couple of times a day. Luckily I don't have very oily skin though.   Yes, putting too much strain on your face is not good for the skin. The way it worked with me was to put on and take off makeup just once a day. After a while it becomes routine, although still not always perfect lol. If you cannot go out wearing it I suggest a time when you can put on and leave for a while before taking it off. It's all practice but accelerating progress is hard. You could lookout for products that will be easier to remove. For instance, waterproof mascara will always be a problem so not good for temporary practice. Some foundations are the same.   Take care of your skin, it has to last. Stinging is a warning that you are going too far or using the wrong product.   Tracy

      @TransMex You are lightyears ahead of where I was at your age. I remember I couldn’t afford hormones at the time because it required a year of therapy. There was no informed consent like today. Try not to be too hard on yourself. Transitioning to a woman (at least on the exterior) is a process that takes some time. You have that benefit. You’re young with a goal of where you’d like to be.   HRT takes care of much of the body hair. I had a considerable amount of body hair 2 years ago. I thought I’d need to camp out at some business that offered electrolysis because I didn’t think I’d lose it all. Well, fast forward two years and it’s now almost completely gone. Yes, your facial hair will likely need to be removed by electrolysis but we all go through that process. It’s nothing new but HRT does slow down the growth of facial hair quite a bit.   Hugs, Susan R🌷

      I feel like since I have a pretty masculine face I need to be good at makeup to be able to pass. The one part of my face that gives me a lot of trouble is the eye region -- my eyes twitch a lot and so I usually need to try several times to get a decent look. A few days ago I decided I would just practice eyeliner on repeat to get good at it fast. I did it like 3 or 4 times then my whole eye region started stinging because of the makeup remover and I feel like putting this much strain on my face is not good for my skin. Do any of you have experience with this? What's a good way to practice without harming my own skin with too much with constant wax on wax off?

      On my legs and my arms and my face the hair is everywhere. Why? No one will ever love me. I cannot be loved. I am too hideous to ever be loved by anyone. My life is already over so why wait? I've failed to be a woman or become a woman. 
    • TransMex
      And there's just so much hair. Why? Why am I so hideous? Why was I made to be this monstrous thing? PLease. I was given nothing. I am empty inside. PLease. Why was I made to be the furthest thing to a woman something can possibly be?
    • TransMex
      I don't know if I'm going to make it to the surgeries, or even the effects of the hormones. I was not given a single ounce of beauty. I was not given a single feminine aspect. Both my face and my body were disfigured by testosterone to be hideous. How can I live like this? No one will ever see me as a woman, because I won't see myself as one and I won't be confident and so I have no future. I don't really want to kill myself or die. What I want is to be a woman. But I can't have that so there must be a point where the pain will beat me and then I'll walk in front of a vehicle. If it's big enough and fast enough it cannot fail. This is what testosterone did to me. It was poison. And it will kill me.   It's not about my specific features or anything it's just that I never ever see a face like mine on women. With the cheeks all drooped and the brow completely coming out of the face. I've not seen a single other woman with a face like mine I must be the most hideous person to believe they can look like a girl. It's just ridiculous. On top of that my face is rather long and there's so many more things on top of all that. I can't believe that I can fix my face with my limited resources there's just no way. I just want to die. I think I really will end up killing myself.

      I don't mind helping out my friend in his studio when he needs it. I enjoy doing guitar repair more than playing and I have plenty of customers to keep me busy.

      You are right it was Blind Faith. I should have caught that mistake before hitting the send key.

      The path forward is rarely clear and often quite mysterious. Often, as we take a moment to stop and look behind us, there is a reflection upon what we once saw as so vital, wondering if we made all the right steps. Accepting that change will be the only constant we can count on and preparing for anything we face along the way will provide an opportunity for us to put our best foot forward regardless of what direction we are headed.

      Hi Carlly!  nice to meet you and Welcome!   This Forum has be very helpful for me to move forward in my Journey.  I hope you find the same❣️

      I'm not on HRT yet, but I wonder if any of our Members have experienced some of the side-effects mentioned?  Acne, skin issues (sun blisters?), skin darkening?  (the changes in hair distribution seem a normal effect) Its good to know these symptoms I think, specially if just starting HRT or a change in therapy 🤙  
    • KayC
      This one. Just like @Charlize my AMAB life has been part of my identity for this long, and it brought me to the place I am today.  I have no desire to reject that or have it vanish (with a magic wand 🧚‍♀️) Great question though, Heather Shay.  Everybody's reply is the Correct Answer❣️
    • KayC
      Living overseas I am always "absentee", but with mail delays (which I have noticed this year) I am hoping we receive our ballots in time to get them turned around.  Thank you @Charlize!  it will be a same day Vote and mail for me this year.

      Just finished watching an excellent 45-minute documentary, produced in 2020, from Australia, which explores the  lives of four very different individuals who each have come to know their gender identity as non-binary.  It's very well done, and well worth watching for anyone trying to better understand being non-binary.  It's called "Not a Boy, Not a Girl", and is available for free viewing to anyone with an Amazon Prime account.  Recommended!   With best wishes,   Astrid
