As part of my reinvention I have committed myself to a spiritual research. This is something I have been thinking of doing for quite some time, but because I always seem too busy, I have never got around to do it, or never had that special trigger. Don’t ask me why but I believe my trigger to have been the birth of my male son.
I have been brought up as Catholic. My parents are Catholics, not sure if by personal or forced choice. But to be honest I have never felt “God” in my heart or anywhere else. I respect everyone else’s choices as I hope mine is respected. I even have a mega-religious aunt that has tried to convert me a couple of times, but my skeptical inquiry completely knocked her out (so to speak :))
Surely there’s something more powerful than us and for sure there are extra-terrestrial beings - how conceited is it of us to think we’re the only ones clever enough to have survived several billion years of astro-catastrophes, weather changes and very possibly native-beings self-destruction -.
No skepticism convinces me that someone who instantly knows something has built a false memory. It’s impossible that someone that has never studied a subject all of a sudden knows it by heart. You don’t know deeply about a topic only because you watch the Discovery Channel. It might help, but not at such a degree.
I say this because, I have always felt very familiar around foreign languages, I had not even had my first English class (in Primary School) and I already helped an older friend with her English homework. With good pronunciation and everything! :)
Now, what I find quite upsetting is the fact that this search of self can not only show itself as very disappointing or/and become quite expensive. I would of thought that these people who perform past life regressions would do it to benefit the evolution of mankind instead of profit. Specially considering that most of them, if not all, have other areas in their business, so they shouldn’t need to charge nearly £200 (about $300) per 90 mins sessions! Besides, what guarantees have you got that they’ll put you “under” anyway? Who will you complaint to? Is it money-back guarantee?!
Off the record, the only times I have been close to a meditative state or when I felt life made sense was when I had had a joint! Now wonder most of the best artists end up dying from an overdose! :D
I have to say I am really curious about reincarnation and there’s no doubt there’s everyday more people looking into it, so I say that must be a sign… I have read halfway through Allan Kardec’s Book of Spirits and in parallel have been reading Barbara Ford-Hammond’s “Past Life Tourism” and I have to say many of the things they “preach” makes all the sense to me, much more than any Bible.
Anyway, I’ll keep you posted about my findings.
