Reincarnation, Yes, No or Maybe?


Reincarnation, do you believe? Have you ever even thought about it? I had my wonders and had thought about it from time to time. Especially after some of my dreams and some of the deja vue I have felt about places or objects. Or even some of the same talks I've had.

Mental P Mama sent me a book a couple of months ago entitled "Many Lives, Many Masters" and once I picked it up I couldn't put it down. Truthfully I always believed in reincarnation but feared what people may say about me for voicing it. I don't care anymore. I also believe in heaven, but where does our spirits go if not immediately sent to heaven. This was one thing I had wondered about. Since I had worked in the medical profession I have talked with several patients that had actually died and came back. I worked on some of these miraculous people. And yes I admit it, I asked them questions later about what they seen, what it was like and what happened. I'm human and couldn't wait to hear their answers. Some of them recalled nothing but almost everyone admitted seeing a bright white light as well as seeing themselves laying there with the doctors and nurses working on them. The out of body experience.

I had this same experience myself. I had to have emergency surgery years ago and while being put under I remember floating out of my body and hovering just over the top of the surgical table where I was laying. Before finding myself floating I very vividly remember choking, and gasping for breath, clinching my throat and being unable to talk. This was actually when they were placing the intubation tube down my throat. It really happened. The next thing I knew I was floating above and watching the nurses and doctors working on me. If you have not experienced this it is quite hard to describe it and tell you how it felt. It to me felt so scary and at the same time so peaceful it was just weird. I remember the nurse telling the doctor "she's crashing, her bp has dropped" and then I saw them get the paddles and shock me back. I also remember the shock to my system when this happened. It was like I was jolted back into my body at that moment. The next thing I remembered was being in recovery.

I realize this story I just shared is not about reincarnation really but after that happened I have always wondered "what would have happened if I had continued floating up above"? Because at that very moment I realized "we are not just a body, but a soul" and "where would my soul go"?

This book made me do even more thinking as well as peaked my interest that much more. It's a wonderful read and I highly recommend it for all. Whether you believe or not! If nothing else it will make you question things about your life and those around you.

Mental Mama had this book in a giveaway with the simple rule that after reading it you pass it to the next person, and so on. You also post what you think about the book and what it may or may not have made you think about. Now it's my turn to do the same. Who wants to read it next and pass it along? Just comment and let me know and next Tuesday I'll choose the winner and announce it here. Of course I'll email you as well. comment and tell me briefly as well do you believe?

Yes, I think I do believe. I have read that books about reincarnation were removed from the Bible because the queen at that time could not bear the thought of being anything but a queen. Do not know if that is true or not.

Just another useless bit of info flowing around in my head.

I would love to read the book.

Not sure if I would read it or not, based on the fact I do not believe in reincarnation. However, I do believe that our souls do survive until such time as Jesus comes again to set up his kingdom, when we will be given a new Body. Not to sound like a fanatic or anything.

I actually came back to your blog to look up an item you had given away several months ago on a Frugal Friday post. (April 2) The fabric coupon organizer, it looked perfect for me then, but I had to wait until my hubby started complaining about all the envelopes with coupons floating around the house. Perfect Plan. I ordered my organizer today...using his pay-pal...so he bought it for me *wink*. I love it when a good plan comes together!

Thank you for your Frugal Fridays!
