SAMANTHA FEY: “Could Our Birthmarks Be The Wounds We Suffered In Past Lives?”

Reincarnation researchers have discovered that some people who died a traumatic death in a past life bear the scars of those injuries in the form of a birthmark. A birthmark is defined as a “benign irregularity on the skin which exists at birth.”

Doctors believe they are caused by an excess of pigment cells or blood vessels grouped in one area of the skin. But today, doctors still don’t know what caused these pigment cells and blood vessels to group this way and form birth marks.

In the 1960’s Dr. Ian Stevenson, a psychiatrist from the University of Virginia, began studying children between the ages of 2 – 4 who remembered their past lives. In hundreds of cases he documented, Dr. Stevenson was able to show a direct correlation between how a person died in a prior life and their birthmark now.

Could our birthmarks be an imprint of memories our soul carries from a prior lifetime?

According to Stevenson’s work, about 35 percent of children who claim to remember past lives have birthmarks that can be linked to the wounds of the person they were in a past life. He looked primarily at children between the ages of 2 – 4 so that their memories wouldn’t be sullied by family stories and lore.

He had strict guidelines for his research and only looked at cases where the past life memory would be verified with names, dates and in some cases the autopsy report. Stevenson only included cases in his research where the birthmark appeared within 10 centimeters of the wound from a prior life.

Dr. Stevenson began his research by visiting areas of the world that believed in reincarnation and therefore the children felt comfortable discussing their past life memories with their parents. Reports came in from Buddhists and Hindus in South Asia, the Shiites of Lebanon and Turkey, and the tribes of West Africa. But he also found several credible cases in Europe and North America. For example, in Alaska he studied the cases of Charles Porter and Henry Elkin who had birthmarks which corresponded to a fatal stabbing with a spear and a gunshot wound.

Dr. Stevenson published his findings in a book called Where Reincarnation and Biology Intersect: Birthmarks and Birth Defects. He studied the case of Anurak – a young boy from Thailand who had a birthmark on his right elbow. It’s believed he was the reincarnation of his brother who died in a drowning accident.

Before his cremation, a family member made a charcoal mark on his right elbow – a custom done so the soul will be recognized when it’s reincarnated. At a very young age, Anurak recognized and called by his nickname his deceased brother’s best friend. He found his brother’s formerly lost scout uniform. Most notably, he had a significant fear of water.

Dr. Stevenson investigated 18 cases of children who had memories of being shot to death in a past life and had 2 birthmarks which correlated to the entry and exit wounds from the past life in which they were shot.

A Burmese child he researched said she was her aunt reincarnated who had died from congenital heart disease. The little girl had a birthmark in the middle of her chest which corresponded to her aunt’s scar from heart surgery.

One of the cases Dr. Stevenson researched involved a boy from India named Maha Ram who recalled being killed with a shotgun. His past life memories were so detailed, Dr. Stevenson was able to find the family of the man Maha Ram said he’d been and was able to see the man’s autopsy report. The results showed the gunshot wound and the boy’s birthmark were a match.

Another boy he researched said he was a washer man who’d been bitten by a snake on his thigh and had died. His father thought this was a very specific memory and decided to research it. He went to the part of the village where several washer men lived and was told that a washer man had died of a snake bite to his thigh several years ago but that the family had moved away.

In 1980, a young fruit seller named Mushir Ali collided with a tractor and died from injuries to his right side when he suffered several fractured ribs. Less than a year later, Naresh Kumar was born. He had a significant mark and depressed area on the right side of his body where his ribs were located. As soon as he learned to talk, he spoke of memories of selling fruit and driving a cart.

He was born into a Hindu family but would speak about being a Muslim and would kneel for prayers when no one was watching. He recalled selling mangoes and even talked about dying in a collision when he was just 4 years old. When Naresh saw Mushir Ali’s father in the village, he ran up to him calling him father.

This was very difficult for the fruit seller’s family as they didn’t believe in reincarnation, but when the young boy was taken to the fruit seller’s home, he recognized all the family members by name and even mentioned a man who had owed him money. The family of the deceased fruit seller then accepted Naresh as the reincarnation of their son.

Dr. Jim Tucker, a psychiatrist from UVA, is continuing Dr. Stevenson’s work. Tucker reports an old woman who died in Thailand with a desire to be reborn as a boy. Her daughter marked her mom’s neck with a white paste so she’d be recognized when she was reincarnated.

Soon after, the daughter gave birth to a son with a birthmark on the back of his neck exactly where she’d put the white paste on her mom’s neck. Dr. Tucker has written several books on his findings including Return to Life: Extraordinary Cases of Children Who Remember Past Lives and Life Before Life: Children’s Memories of Previous Lives.

In several languages, the word birthmark means “cravings” or “unfulfilled wishes.” Birthmarks were believed to be reflections of the unsatisfied wishes of the mom during her pregnancy. Other folklore suggests they are from a pregnant mother food cravings, so if she ate a lot of strawberries, her child would have a strawberry shaped birthmark.

Possibly, though, birthmarks have a much deeper meaning. They might be soul scars from wounds or surgeries suffered in a past life. Several people claim that after they recalled and healed the memory from the past life, the birthmark simply faded away. So take some to examine your birth mark. It just may give you a clue as to who you were in a past life.

JUDI LYNCH: “Practicing Spiritual Optimism”

“Learning how to live in the light of the spiritual consciousness while still in human form on the Earth is no easy task. How do we balance these two worlds together so that it makes sense?”

~Judi Lynch

 

The Earth needs our Spiritual Optimism now to create the energy to heal it. If we know right and wrong in our humanity, if it is possible to become part of the human mind to inherit not to hurt another living being, then let that spiritual optimism be our goal.

Practicing Spiritual Optimism

Have you ever known someone who, no matter what you say, continues to respond negatively to your suggestions after asking you for advice? Even if it appears they are destined to complain for a lifetime, remember that your words may just take more time to sink in. You might hear later, “I thought about what you said.” Also, there is more than just one answer to a life challenge, and the solution depends on the person along with the unique circumstances they are facing. We as humans operate on different levels of understanding. It’s not a judgment of good or better but of vibration, soul level, and maturity. We are on this Earth in a giant classroom filled with every ridiculous mixture of blood, bones, and consciousness through zillions of lifetimes spinning along in our own little universe. How do we stay optimistic when there is a divide, unrest, and hatred all around us?

Energy is something we can take responsibility for. Optimism creates an energy of hope and manifestation. If we want to manifest success and true ability to assist others in raising their vibration, it is imperative that we learn to control our energy fields. If we are still bitter, unforgiving, judgmental or seeking revenge, we will create a very shaky ground in which to walk our talk of living in loving spirit. If we could only look at someone and see the beauty of their face. The trueness of their heart through their soulful eyes, reading their words of pain and cry in empathy for what they have endured, we are learning. We learn how to recognize these feelings because we have felt them in the past and we sought out ways to heal them. We hold space for their tears. We also know that there is healing in letting those feelings evolve into a higher form of learning. Forgiveness, clarity, acceptance, compassion, and charity. Not only for others but for ourselves as well.

Spiritual Optimism is learning to flow with the lessons and glow with the blessings. If we are aware of our thoughts, words, and actions concerning our challenges, we can stop the self-doubt and criticism from bringing us and our vibration down. It’s okay to feel angry. It’s okay to feel slighted sometimes. It’s holding onto the feelings and letting them define us that makes us pessimistic. Anyone who tells you that thoughts don’t matter or that we are destined to live as our ancestors are listening to the voice of negativity. Soul mastery takes courage and perseverance. It takes a big heart but well worth the investment.

Learning how to live in the light of the spiritual consciousness while still in human form on the Earth is no easy task. How do we balance these two worlds together so that it makes sense? Very carefully it seems. If we go running off on cloud nine because we can feel the spirit, Intuit for others and heal by channeling energy then forget to pay the electric bill, it will get mighty cold in the house. If we know, there is more to this life than traffic jams, mean people and yes, bills, we are blessed to be sure. Many people have no clue what they are doing, why they are here or how they got here. It doesn’t mean they won’t learn over a lifetime of love, mistakes, missteps, crazy adventures and misguided fortune hunting.

Knowing what you believe in can help keep you optimistic as well. It gives you a base of peace to know that you have purpose and meaning. Helping others not because you were asked to but because it is a part of who you are. The human mind intertwined with the soul spinning in harmony and balance is the real power in our spiritual evolution. How long it takes us to get there is an arguable subject. The Earth needs our optimism now to create the energy to heal it.

The energy of hope can permeate the minds of those who have the power to help change it. If we understand this, we understand how history can be used about what to and what “not” to do. If we know right and wrong in our humanity, if it is possible to become part of the human mind to inherit not to hurt another living being, then let that optimism be our goal.

SOUL TRAVEL RULES: “There Are 7 Types Of Souls In The World — What Type Of Soul Are You?”

Ascension Avatar note: There are various soul levels and goals, modes, attitudes and chief features of each type from The Michael Teachings which are not mentioned in this article… I’m an old King and the description here is a bit extreme, as in a few others… Try intuiting or dowsing to determine your type.

Prior to our earthly journey, we pick a specific role to play. We don’t pick this role consciously, but rather as a type of energy that our soul intuitively chooses with a purpose to evolve even more.

This role shapes our entire journey and influences greatly in who we become. Our strengths and weaknesses go around this role, as well as the behaviors and attitudes we have towards others.

This role is described as a type of ‘soul.’ And there are seven different types of roles we possibly take on.

These are the roles of a Server, Artisan, Warrior, Scholar, Sage, Priest, and King. Each of these has its own flavor that helps us evolve in a certain way.

You can almost say that these are sides, like left, right, up, down, front and back, but on a higher dimensional level.

Each of these stretches your soul in a different direction so it can grow and expand.

What type of soul do you think you belong to?

1. The Server

The Server’s primary trait is being a natural caretaker. Servers seek to make the world better by doing everything in their capacity to help people ease their sufferings. They’re always on the lookout for those who are in need to offer a helping hand.

However, Server’s tend to be abused because of their excessive generosity. People forget that Servers are also humans who have their own needs. On the other side of the spectrum, they can be really manipulative.

They may be found in the medical fields or public service, such as social workers or politicians.

If you think you’re a Server, be not overwhelmed by trying to fix everyone’s problems.

Servers comprise 30% of the population.

2. The Artisan

The Artisan is a creative individual who is skilled in expressing the thoughts they came to ponder.

They enjoy being original and productive.

Artisans feel a primal urge to create something, ANYTHING. Their creations can range from handicrafts to a piece of poetry to a scientific theorem. While artisans thrive in the fine arts, their creative juice can be directed at anything.

Artisans are responsible for all the cool gadgets, stunning pieces of arts, and advancement in technology.

They form 22% of the population and are seen as the artists, engineers, architects, mechanics, and others who display considerable skills.

3. The Warrior

True to their name, the Warriors are the active type. They love to overcome challenges to achieve their goals and dreams.

They enjoy hard work and find delight in being rewarded for it. They have indomitable spirits and withstand thorough punishments.

Warriors typically have strong, muscular bodies that are ready to go to battle, either physically or idealistically. They often have low voices and appear grounded and solid.

Sometimes, they could be notorious and show short fumes and blunt attitudes which others find intimidating.

Warriors hold 17% of the population. They are the athletes, soldiers, and salesmen to name a few.

4. The Scholar

Scholars are naturally born curious. They enjoy accruing as much knowledge as possible. Because of this treat, they never struggle in the academic world.

They may be easygoing in nature, yet are found to be very methodical and adventurous in their intellectual pursuits. Scholars may go to great lengths to acquire knowledge about a subject, even endure personal sacrifice for the sake of knowledge.

Scholars are not fond of public displays of emotion and avoid conflict. Their cold gaze is the biggest tell-tale sign of their role. Others might perceive them as arrogant or too analytic.

They love to share what they’ve learned with others though.

We see them in the 13% of the population. They are comfortable in the fields of science, math, and research. Most of them are masters of a subject or teachers.

5. The Sage

Sages are typically charming people. They keep people entertained by their charisma that entices almost everyone. They love to be in public and express themselves through art, music, and dance.

When a sage smiles their eyes dance with an infectious playfulness. They are generally humorous in their observations and rarely miss an opportunity to tell a joke.

Sages are skilled assimilators of wisdom, wanting to comprehend the world around them and then share it. They are not always original thinkers, preferring to take ideas from others and add their own twist to them.

They could be arrogant when not given the proper attention and resort to dramatic tendencies in social circles.

10% of the population makes up these friendly and fun-loving folks. Sages are natural performers and make excellent actors, singers, and teachers. They improvise well.

6. The Priest

Priests raise people up. They enjoy the role of being a motivator and love to channel their inner strength to help others succeed.

They seek to raise consciousness and improve the world. Priests easily attract attention, either through their striking good looks or their fiery sermons. However, they are prone to having an inflated ego.

Priests are naturally compassionate, charismatic and draw a congregation to them, even if non-religious.

They bring inspiration and recognize the endless potential that people have. They inspire their followers to make positive changes in their lives.

These caring and compassionate individuals make 7% of the population. Most of them are public motivational speakers, coaches and spiritual teachers.

7. The King

Kings are naturally born leaders. They have a strong personality and are seen as assertive, commanding, making sure that things get done in a timely and almost perfect manner.

One key to identifying this type of soul is to look for an expression that seems concentrated, focused, and self-assured. King eyes are generally pointed, fixed, and unwavering in their directness.

Kings are so driven by mastery that they rarely abandon a task or new skill until they have completely mastered it. They are perfectionists and they demand their exacting standards from others.

They are good in problem-solving. Their drive for perfection makes them controlling, overbearing, and even merciless at times. They are adept at seeing the big picture and are excellent at delegating jobs to the right people.

They make 1% of the population. Most of them hold positions in government and politics, and the higher echelons of bureaucratic hierarchies due to their addiction to mastery, perfectionism and almost psychopathic action taking tendencies. Not all kings will hold thrones but they often rise to positions of leadership in their chosen profession.

Most of us have 2 or 3 of these types mixed together. However, one type of soul is always most dominant in a person! What type of soul do you think you most belong to?

GREGG PRESCOTT, M.S.: “Remind Me Again, Why Did I Incarnate Into This Sh*thole?”

Remind Me Again Why Did I Incarnate Into This Shithole

Did you ever wonder why you decided to incarnate into these lower vibrations of the third density?

When we were back on the other side with Source, life seemed so easy.  We had the answers to all universal questions and lived in the complete vibration of love.  There was no dissension, hatred, ego, or financial concerns, just love.

After many years of being in this vibration, you forgot what it was like to live in a 3rd dimensional vibration, yet you were fortunate enough to have been here in at least one other previous incarnation and you remembered how your spiritual progression was raised exponentially by being in a world full of duality.

You swore to yourself that this time, you would not allow the lower third dimensional vibrations to bring you down. You planned on bringing back the vibration of love with you to this planet, but your memories of being with Source were once again wiped from your immediate memories as the 3rd dimensional brainwashing began, yet again.

From birth, you were indoctrinated into a system that promotes subservience, control, and conformity.  You always felt cognitive dissonance over this but weren’t sure why.  It seemed like everybody else was conforming to this system and this is the way it is supposed to be.

You attended school and sometimes caught yourself daydreaming as if your higher self was telling you, “A formal education is not what is important in life.”

As a child, you were taught how to play sports and learned aggressive, self-serving behaviors that only reinforced the divide and conquer mentality that is forced upon us by our societal expectations.

You were pacified with mundane television programs that not only took you further away from who truly are, but helped to influence what you thought, wore, ate, drank, etc..

As you grew older, you started to discover how corrupt this system has become on Earth, not only in your home country, but all over this planet.  You begin to seek answers to questions that are not taught in school, such as “What is the origin of human existence?” and “Why are there so many opposing religions when there is only one Source?”

You become trapped in a system that relies on monetary success in order to survive, making you an economic slave to the few that control the many. Unknowingly, you become part of that system.

So, why did I decide to incarnate to this shithole?

Every one of these situations gave you a chance to learn and grow spiritually.  For a while, you simply forgot how these challenges would benefit you. You knew that at some point in this incarnation, you would awaken to find your true self along with your purpose for being here.

It seemed so easy when you were on the other side with Source.  You wanted to make millions of soul contracts because they all seemed so easy to achieve while you are in the presence of Source. Instead, you listened to Source and ended up making thousands of soul contracts, which all seemed achievable in this lifetime.

Some of these soul contracts involved people who you would only meet for a brief minute, but somehow, they changed your life, or you changed theirs.  They helped to lead you back to your path of enlightenment, or vice-versa.

While you may never personally know these people, you were best friends with them when you were back with Source.

Remind Me Again, Why did I Incarnate to this Sh*thole?Did you ever see someone for the first time and just know that you’ve known this person from somewhere?  Chances are, you did know this person when you were back with Source.

You also wanted to come back to be part of the Great Awakening and the Shift in Consciousness.  We are at a point in time where our planet is completing a 26,000 year cycle called the precession of the equinoxes.  We are also at the end of a greater cycle in which our solar system has completed it revolution around its own sun in Sirius.  You said to yourself, “There is no way I’m gonna miss out on this!”  Besides, you forgot what it was like to experience duality and polarity.

In the end, this shithole has been an amazing experienced filled with an abundance of opportunities for spiritual growth.  If you willingly decide to come back here in another incarnation, look for this article!

Remember this: YOU are the light at the end of the tunnel!

starseeds quiz.jpg

 

Have you ever caught yourself looking at the stars for no reasons? Have you ever wondered where your soul could be from, maybe from another star system? Have you ever felt that Earth might not be your home? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you may be a starseed.

Starseeds or light beings sounds very hippyish, however if you were to find the truth behind our energy signatures that we are born into, then you already know that our zodiac signs and planetary influences already control what we look like, our qualities and faults and so much more.

The question remains which solar system did our souls incarnate from before we came to Earth?

Take this Quiz to find out which light being or starseed you are.
