Here’s an interesting question from reader Lulu: “One psychic or espiritista who visited our house once told me, as soon as he entered our house, to finish my karma with my husband or we will reconnect again in our next life. My question is, how can karma be resolved before one of us passes away? It has been a rocky marriage, and I think I am the only one who understands the situation. But my patience is already running out.”
As I replied to another previous reader, “You meet each other to work out your karma or learn from it. The only way to end karma is to know why it is there in the first place. You don’t end it simply by wishing or desiring it to end. You have to accept it.”
That reader wrote back with a follow-up question: “Is it then only through past life regression that one can know what happened in our previous life? What if a person underwent a past life regression and didn’t attempt to make amends with that other person, and just let the status quo prevail? You said also that ‘Wishing and desiring is not enough, one must accept.’ What is it that I need to accept?”
You must accept the situation you are in, because you chose to be there in a past incarnation to work out your karma with the other person. Since there is free will, you can, of course, choose to get out of the unhappy situation. But you will surely meet that person again in another lifetime. You cannot escape the laws of karma.
Hypnotic regression is not the only way to know one’s past lives. There’s deep meditation, dreams, déjà vu or asking a real psychic who can read the akashic record.
Reincarnating as aliens
“Can humans reincarnate as elementals or aliens?” reader Lulu asks. “Can elementals dictate what we should do with our property, or with our life? I recently learned our house serves as a portal to elementals, and that we cannot, or should not, sell the house, or they will get mad. They (the elementals) have been helping us financially and will continue to do so as long as we don’t sell it. But we can have it rented in the future.”
Regarding what to do with your house, and whether you should let elementals make decisions for you: of course not. But you can live in harmony with them. You can ask a clairvoyant, a psychic or espiritista to talk to the elementals.
Although other Eastern religions, particularly Hinduism and Buddhism, believe that humans can reincarnate as animals, or some other forms of sentient beings depending on their karma, I do not hold such a view, with due respect for their beliefs.
I believe that, although it’s possible we have evolved from animals, we do not return to that form once we have achieved being human. We will reincarnate as human beings after every reincarnation until we have achieved divinity and union with God.
In a detailed study by psychiatrist Dr. Helen Wambach, when she regressed 3,000 individuals (with 5,000 recorded regressions), there was not a single case where anyone ever recounted life as an animal. Of course, we should respect the views of Buddhism and Hinduism who believe otherwise, but we do not have to accept it.
I also believe it is possible for us to reincarnate on other planets as aliens. Why not?
The mystic, theologian, alchemist and scientist Emanuel Swedenborg believed that many planets are inhabited by intelligent beings, and that he had talked to them.
This may sound unbelievable at first glance, but I don’t see why it is not possible. Surely, the Earth is not the only habitable planet in the entire universe, which is composed of billions and possibly even trillions of galaxies.
