Talking about reincarnation or rebirth is automatically talking about the life cycles of the human soul: Long time ago, our souls left their divine origin to gain some experiences in the material world. It was clear from the very beginning that the souls would eventually return back to their divine origin, however. Therefore all our souls have the strong desire to return back to where they originally came from, respectively to their original divine state.
A return to the divine origin will only be possible when the souls have reached a state of wholeness again similar to the above mentioned divine state. Concretely, this state is about personality traits, which are best described with unconditional love, (self-) honesty, happiness, modesty, humbleness, etc. Alternatively, you can describe this divine state with respecting the basic rights of existence.
Through our living in the material world (previous incarnations), the above mentioned traits have been at least partially unlearned and replaced with striving for power and prestige, financial wealth and selfishness. After the death of a human being in the material world, the soul scrutinizes whether it has reached its divine state again. If not all of the above mentioned traits have been acquired or with other words, if the basic rights of existence were not fully respected, then this stage has not (yet) been reached. Most likely, the soul will decide sooner or later to reincarnate (rebirth) on the Earth to continue its education. That is because those traits which have been unlearned in the material world (on the Earth) can also most efficiently be retrained in the material world.
Our living on Earth can therefore be described as a training camp to regain personality traits like unconditional love, self honesty, happiness, modesty and humbleness (see also our text about the development of human beings). Family, friends, acquaintances and „coincidental" encounters are our training partners for the souls on their way back to the divine origin.
The description of the non-incarnated state of our souls is deliberatively kept vague because such states or realms are very difficult to understand for incarnated beings. Intellectually or even scientifically, these concepts are absolutely impossible to understand (you could say the price you pay for being incarnated is the partial loss of understanding our relation to other realms). However, the essence of this discussion is to recognize the motivation of our souls for reincarnation (rebirth) and to hopefully draw conclusions for the personal life (being the current incarnation).
On a global view, the development of the human souls as a whole is faltering to put it mildly. Instead of developing the above mentioned desirable traits leading to respecting the basic rights of existence, opposed traits like egoism, power over fellow beings and greed are being developed and even further reinforced. The affected souls - unfortunately it is the vast majority - deviate through this behaviour more and more from their divine origin. However, these souls have few alternatives left other than to reincarnate again and again. Hoping to be able at last to develop in the right direction and thus to reach their goal. (We will cover the problem of this wrong development in another text).
An incarnation must not be looked at as punishment for mistakes or vile actions in earlier incarnations. From the view of the soul, each incarnation is a new chance to get closer to its return back to the divine state of origin. The soul always incarnates voluntarily (in the text about the human development, we have compared individual rebirths with taking semesters at a university). Souls who heavily surrendered to striving for power, greed and selfishness may indeed decide to reincarnate in a real trouble spot and to live under worst conditions. This is solely to physically and emotionally sense the effects of power, greed and selfishness from other beings. It happens of the soul's free will and hoping that the impression of these bad experiences will finally lead to developing the desired traits in successive incarnations.
Can we prove the truthfulness of our statements? No, we can't. It is not possible to substantiate reincarnation. On the other hand, it is not possible to prove the non-existence of reincarnation either 1).
Should you therefore simply have faith in our description of the life cycle of human souls and reincarnation / rebirth?
No, don't do this! Make your own thoughts whether this may be right or wrong. During the process of birth on Earth we forget many relations and interconnections, which are in fact well known to our soul (you can look at this like the down-side of being incarnated). However in using our intuition or listening to our inner voice we can still access the big truths of live (our inner voice can be looked at as kind of channel to our soul). In this way, you yourself can clarify the following two questions:
Before you begin however, you should release the ballast of the daily life in order not to get disturbed or influenced by others and other things, so that you can really listen to your own inner voice. There are many different ways to achieve this, e.g. go for a walk in the nature, through meditation, yoga or spiritual cleaning, etc. In our seminars about developing intuition, we recommend in addition an exercise for a conscious breathing:
Stay or sit straight up and breathe in - short pause - breathe out deeply and at the same time let go of all thoughts of your daily life and send them away - short pause - breathe in deeply and image that you fill your entire body with white light - short pause - breathe out deeply and at the same time let go of all thoughts of your daily life and send them away - short pause - and so on. Repeat as often as you wish, but at least four to five times.
Afterwards dedicate yourself to the above mentioned questions. Concentrate on your inner voice without becoming tight. Do you hear more „yes" or „no" when asking the questions mentioned above about reincarnation of human beings? To get certainty about the received answers, re-examine them several times on different days. Don't get discouraged if once or several times you don't feel anything at all. Simply try again later or on a different day.
Count on your inner voice and don't let other people persuade you (not even us!). However when you have found out that the meaning of our life is developing personality traits like unconditional love, happiness, self honesty and humbleness, respectively to respect the basic rights of existence - then please do act accordingly. Draw the consequences for you own life. Take advantage of this incarnation. Life is about you. It is your own life. It might well be time for change.
1) By the way, this refers to everything spiritual in life: It is impossible to intellectually understand spiritual concerns. These are simply out of reach for a so called scientific (i.e. worldly) approach.
