Past Lives and Reincarnation

Do you believe in past lives? What are your thoughts on reincarnation?

Do you believe in past lives?

The idea of past lives and reincarnation is not only a hot topic, but one filled with controversy as well. I find it's a 50/50 split when it comes to people's opinions on the matter.

I first learned about reincarnation back in the 1980's when
Shirley MacLaine came out with her book, Out
on a Limb.
It was a topic that fascinated me, so I decided to pursue it
further and started reading some books by Edgar Cayce. Despite being a Catholic
(Catholics as a whole don't really believe in reincarnation), I happen to think
there is some truth to the theory.

How can we possibly accomplish everything we're supposed to
in one lifetime? There are lessons needed to be learned, relationships that
must be formed, work that needs to be done. And I don't mean housework or our
careers. I'm talking about spiritual work...the kind of work that brings us
closer to God and makes us better people during our lifetimes. I believe it
takes multiple lifetimes to achieve this. Many lifetimes, but one soul. God
creates only one of us. Our physical bodies are kind of like cars. When it gets
old and worn out, we get a new one.

How else can certain things be explained, such as why do
babies die? Why does a young person die tragically in an accident? Is that all
their life was supposed to be? I don't think so. I believe their lives continue
in Heaven, and that eventually, when the time is right, they come back. We
usually come back with other family members and even friends who've we shared
other lifetimes with.

How can a child protégé be explained? How can you explain
meeting someone for the first time, yet you feel you've known them your whole
life? How can you explain being familiar with a place you've never been to? So
many questions, so much to consider.

Last August I decided to find out for myself, and I met with
licensed psychotherapist and past-life regression therapist Richard Scheinberg.
Richard has a very successful practice in East Islip called Sunrise Counseling
Center. Richard happens to be a wonderful author as well, and I've known him
for a number of years. Richard trained under Brian Weiss, who is world renowned
when it comes to reincarnation and past lives. So I knew I was in good hands
working with Richard.

I was a bit apprehensive and wasn't sure if the process
would work for me, despite my believing in it. I spent a lot of time talking
with Richard ahead of time. He explained the whole process and he relieved my
fears. I had agreed to work with him on creating a short video which would
include excerpts from my session, along with my journey to discovering more
about my past life. We spent months working with video reporter Chris Collora,
who did a wonderful job in filming and putting it all together. The video is
really quite remarkable. If you'd like to view it, go to this link: http://www.richardcscheinberg.com/video/?vid=102

I'm not trying to convince anyone to become a believer in
past lives. I'm simply presenting information to you, so go easy on your
comments. I know my blogs have caused some controversy in the past. I'm simply giving you some food for thought...something to contemplate. If you're
interested in having your own past life regression session, you can visit
Richard Scheinberg's website at www.richardcscheinberg.com. Richard was also a
recent guest on my blogtalk radio show, "The Kerriann and Joe Show -
Spirit Connection." For your free download go to: www.blogtalkradio.com/kerriannandjoeshow/2012/07/13/past-life-regression--therapist-author-richard-scheinberg

Watch the video, listen to the radio show and check out Richard's books. See if you then become a believer in past lives.

Just a reminder I will be at the South Huntington Public
Library on Thursday, August 2, from 7:00 - 8:30 PM, giving a lecture and book
signing on Ghosts of Long Island. 

Kerriann Flanagan Brosky is the author of Ghosts of Long Island; Stories of the
and Ghosts of Long Island II; More Stories of the Paranormal, both available on Amazon in hardcover and e-format. www.ghostsoflongisland.com

Some people place value on money and it is the only thing they value. How much does one million dollars mean to a land wight or a being of energy? Money is not a priority in these places. It's just more "stuff" - paper and lumps of metal. Might as well offer them a million pebbles. There's very good reasons why money can't buy these abilities. If you think the world is screwed up now, heh... imagine if real clairvoyance or shamanic power was something you could buy. A recipe for instant worldwide chaos, LOL!

Mr Abbott I agree most people do worry too much. As far as the Bible goes--this I know is true-- Matt 11 :28-29 Jesus speaking" Come unto me, all you who are weary and heavy burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." From experience speaking now-- I did what this suggested, I went from being an anxiety ridden worrisome person to peaceful even in the storms of life. God is good all the time!! Anyone reading I suggest you too, if your having a tough time here in the present...Go to the source of true peace --Jesus really does save!

Watch out, the wolves are encircling the sheeple to feed on your mind and money .we have the holy men, the Spiritual Mediums ,the reincarnationist ,what cons of nonsense will come next?
Charlie Cheswick August 09, 2012 at 02:49 AM
Eileen, it's not about "buying these abilities." No one is claiming that. The money is a bonus to something much more valuable to a medium---genuine credibility. However, no one has come forth because they all know it to be complete bollocks. Why come forward to risk being humiliated & discredited when people will pay hand over fist regardless of the credibility. I'm sure this is the mediums thinking (forgive the usage) and as con artists it makes sense.
