As a Past Life and Between Life Regression therapist, I have seen many people remember past lives. This is possible even with people who do not
believe in reincarnation. People are able to give very detailed information.
It is your soul that learns through each incarnation---not your personality in this life time. That is why there is no need to remember past lessons.
I have also done Between Life Regressions with many people who had no prior knowledge of what to expect during a session and they inevitably work
their way through the spirit realm and have the same experiences. None of this is led by me. One of the first things that I mention to a new client is
that past lives are not necessarily easy. We were not all rich and famous as has been mentioned in a previous post. In contrast, I have not had anyone
who was rich and famous. Most of the people that I have worked with have had hard lives and hard lessons. Karma is not retribution for past behavior,
but rather an opportunity to understand that behavior.
There is another plausible explanation for people "remembering past lives", and it has to do with what most mediums describe as a person's "spirit
team". These passed-over people can have undue influence if they are the sort of folks who become aggressively involved in what they do (and we all
know someone who's like this). They can affect a living brain by affecting the information that gets processed into the memory of that living brain.
And many times, that undue influence is inflicted as a result of ignorance on the part of the "spirit team" member, but once it has happened,
there's no undoing what's been done, and that influence persists as a full part of that brain's memory - whether accessed or not.
A person memory exists like (for lack of a better term) a data cloud. They're using this term in associating with project data management in business
circles these days to describe all the information within a company's data vault that is isolated to one specific project or application, and it
actually describes what your brain uses to allow you to not have to relearn everything all over again, while protecting you from other people's
memory cloud data or raw residual data that is simply part of the general information collective that exists naturally as a result of stuff that
happens and has happened.
If a memory of an influencing "spirit team" member is introduced into the data stream (from the living person's eyes, ears, nose, mouth, touch or
rumination channels, for lack of a better, more scientific description of course) then it can survive the cognitive dissonance filter (especially if
slipped in as a recalled memory, and not a novel experience (a technicality, yes, but this is important to consider) then the brain will not be able
to distinguish this introduced memory from a memory that exists due to an actual experience that the brain authentically experienced. We see this sort
of false memory introduction happen during some forms of therapy, so the potential for such introduction isn't unknown by brain researchers. It's
Usually, this will happen (involving a "spirit team" member) as an unintended consequence of an attempt to help the living ward (of the team) deal
with a difficult situation by way of sharing some knowledge or experience via direct information introduction. The problem is that nothing that exists
as information is free of internal (historical) context, and that context can't really be separated out from the desired experience-based information
that's been directly shared with the brain of the living individual. The most obvious internal context is personal history - memories - that
contributed to the acquisition of whatever knowledge or experience has been shared, and this personal history (slipping into the living person's
memory cloud along with the knowledge itself) can become indistinct from the actual personal history of the living individual. And this is how past
life memories become active memories of living people.
They never lived before, but their memory clouds have been "infected" by the internal (historical) context that is simply part of the dense
contextual make up of knowledge that was shared with them, at some point in their life, by a well-meaning, but ignorant "spirit team" member who was
just trying to help out.
And this is what Reincarnation is based on. False memories. Once you realize exactly how all this works, you can't imagine the mysteries that quickly
resolve with little or no effort. It's really amazing.
