Reincarnation, Past Lives, and the Rose Reading
“The soul is not born; it does not die; it was not produced from anyone…; Unborn, eternal, it is not slain, though the body is slain.” – Katha Upanishad
Have you ever had an intuition that you lived before? You may have visited a place or building and have a flash that it is eerily familiar? You may meet people and know instantly that you have known them before. Or perhaps visions of your former lives have shown up in a dream or during a psychic reading. What are past lives and why do we read them during psychic readings?
“I am certain that I have been here as I am now a thousand times before, and I hope to return a thousand times.” – Goethe
Reincarnation is a belief that is thousands of years old and can be traced back to Celtic, Greek, Indian, and numerous Asian spiritual traditions. Reincarnation means to come back to live again or incarnate. In other words to regenerate or rebirth a new life after death.
Although some religions do not condone the notion of reincarnation, many of the oldest traditions and cultures around the world accept this as factual and valid. In fact, the cycle of life-death-rebirth is prominent in the belief systems of human groups both past and present. Texts such as the Emerald Tablets of Thoth, Egyptian Book of the Dead, and Tibetan Book of Dead focus on life as a preparation for death in the life-death-rebirth cycle.
Reincarnation in its most basic form is the belief that we return to earth many times and have lived many lives. Past lives may have been human, animal, elemental, or even extraterrestrial in nature. During a psychic reading, past lives are read to gather the information that may be relevant to us in the present time.
There is something seductive in learning how you were an Egyptian priestess, a powerful Roman emperor, an oracle at Delphi, or a rich French nobleman. However, not all the lives we have lived are glamorous or easy. We may incarnate as male or female and present in readings at a certain age and stage of that particular lifetime. Why do past life readings show up and why do we read them? To answer this, let’s delve into what is called the rose reading.
The Rose Reading
“I try not to live in the past… but… sometimes the past lives in me.”- Jamie Ford
The Rose Reading is a psychic tool for reading information about your life. The rose represents you as a spirit. There are many parts to the rose reading, including the position under the sun (the sun being the god of your heart), the quality of the petals and images that emerge, the hip, stem length, and leaves or breaks on the stem. One significant portion of the rose reading is looking at past lives.
During the rose reading, the past lives show up as colored rings along the stem. The reader tunes into color and begins to describe the images that they see. A reader may be drawn to your demeanor, lifestyle, and experiences of a former life and describe them in detail. You may hear about relationships that you had with individuals that parallel relationships you have today. The reading of past lives informs the reading of you in present time and connections may be made between the two.
A Psychic Perspective
“We may not live in the past but the past lives in us.”- Samuel Pisar
Aside from the entertainment value of knowing that you were a Mongolian warrior, street sweeper, dancer, poet, actor, or a rich heir to a family fortune, the reading of past lives serves as a way for you to connect to your spirit. It is an opportunity to gather the information that may be relevant to consider in your current lifetime. They provide lessons and insight that may be integrated in present time. The lives that show up in a reading may vary if you have a reading at a later time representing what your spirit needs to hear at the moment.
When listening to a past life reading it is helpful to note what questions and answers arise as well as information on your personality, challenges, skills, attitudes, and relationships. This information may explain themes of your current lifetime and help you find answers to the questions you have.
We don’t read past lives to know the opulent and powerful lives we may have led nor to have an excuse to escape our current existence. Rather, past life readings allow us to learn more about ourselves in spirit. This insight helps us to heal, take lessons from former lives, and bring them into the present time, informing and illuminating our journey.
