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. ;)

Huggs, :wub:

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,

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.

      I was always afraid to fight my whole life and when I was a kid I got picked on a lot and was afraid to stand up to the bullies.  That's one of the reasons I wanted to be a girl.  The girls can be mean to each other but it never involves being physically hurt so I thought it was much safer to be a girl.    As far as avoiding danger, most cis women know how to do that.  You will never see a woman alone at night on a lonely street.  They have a good sense for their vulnerability and don't take risks. We need to think like a woman.  Hey...... we are women! 
    • DonnaBall
      Yes I know.  She is trying to take care of her mother from 1200 miles away.  She uses Visiting Angles most of the day but it's difficult when situations crop up. She's on the phone a lot!  As far as spiteful, you would have to know her to understand her.  She is a kind person and has been kind to me throughout this ordeal but cannot tolerate ANY crossdressing even when she is not home.  She has known about my TG for 34 years so there will be NO change in her attitude. She won't even read anything about it, if it's not from God it does not count.  She feels the secular world has a lot of things wrong. Otherwise she is a loving person to everyone, never judges people and never complains, whines or nags.  First it's a religious thing with her and of course she feels it's ruining her life.  She thinks I have a choice and I am just believing a lie from Satin.  That's what I have to work with and of course I can't win when God is used.  So far she has been very reasonable with the financial settlement and that's the most important thing to me, but I wonder where she places in the spectrum of wives responses.  Is she average, or extremely uncooperative?    I just want to get this separation overwith and I am being careful not to respond to her infrequent anger about her situation.

      Hi Jackie,   I have experienced a few disconnections from the site and this undoubtedly explains why. I hope you can resolve the technical problems soon! 🤗

      @Charlize @Jani Thank you both for the reassurance.  I never want to ruin a good thing with a family relationship.  I was playing it safe to some degree but when you have only bits and pieces of a particular situation you’re serving an entree of ‘best guess’ with a side of ‘wisdom’.   Thanks again, Susan R🌷
    • Jani
      Well yes and no.  My dad still uses the nickname I used for decades.  It sounds silly when he does it.  My wife even commented on it when we last saw them.  I'm at the point of not caring anymore since I'm comfortable with who I am and if its said loud enough in public, he's the one who seems odd.  Plus we don't see my parents face to face regularly.   So the daughter just may see it as not worth the effort.    This would be a nice outcome.     Jani

      Hey Spence! Welcome to the forum, we welcome you with open arms

      I would have done the same thing you did Susan.  I say that from my own experience.  It has taken my son many years to properly name me and not refer to me as Dad in public.  When we are together in private it doesn't bother me but in public it can cause confusion and embarrassment.  If the woman does use her daughters chosen name and it disturbers her daughter i'm sure she will say something.  My guess is that she would see it as a final acceptance.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Thanks susan, and you dont have to think i was putting up with anything, its just nice to hear im not completely alone even in some small way,heh
    • Aidan5
      Haha that's true.     He is so hyper and excited all the time it is adorable and hard to keep up with him, and I thought I was hyper!! But I really think he was throwing some hints at me and I am definitely taking them and keeping them. He seems like the kind who likes to tease playfully so I better watch out haha.

      Asking the Trans person is always in good taste and correct manners.  My only caution is to do it at a private time between the two of them.

      Welcome Magical Realism, a pleasure to meet you...You are not alone in this at all.  I too have been having dreams like this.  I’ve had them for decades but since going full time they now have changed slightly. Mine were a little different [pre-transition] in that the fact that I was presenting male except I had breasts accompanied by a bra under my male clothes. The funny thing is that in almost every dream, the people in the dream were unknowing of my little secret until later in the dream, I eventually always get outed by some ridiculous circumstance..lol.  But oddly enough, since actively starting my transition, I am always presenting as Susan.  It’s almost as if my subconscious is aware of my conscious activities...(kidding)   Well Magical Realism, thanks for putting up with my ramblings. These things happen from time to time. I’m glad you came aboard...hope you stay for the ride.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      I would have been a little more direct and said, "Maybe you should ask her." That's just me though. I can't think of a reason I would be uncomfortable if my mother started calling me by my actual legal name and using the correct pronouns. Well, I might be a little skeeved out. We're not close and she's been hostile about it up until now. She'd be up to something. Your new friend though, she seems sincere.   I don't see anything wrong with your answer. It never hurts to try and make a loved one more comfortable when you're talking to them.   Hugs!
