This article deals with reincarnation therapy and what can or cannot be achieved with it. Expressions like reincarnation, rebirth, transmigration of souls, often mean the same thing.
To stay with reincarnation, let’s first take a closer look at the word incarnation. In the dictionary you will find for the term incarnation, “coming into the flesh, embodiment, incarnation”. This means that something non-material or spiritual is taking a physical form. The syllable “Re” indicates that it happens again, i.e. not only once but repeatedly. Thus the term “transmigration of souls” gets a meaning. Our soul uses a body, so to speak, in order to have certain experiences with it, and when it is finished with it, it leaves this material form, sorts these experiences and learns from them, in order to recognize which further areas are still missing for it to become “complete”. Finally this process is repeated. The soul wanders, to put it a little simplified, from body to body.
Now, through various experiments in psychology and psychotherapy, an attempt was made to find ways of remembering earlier life. In the beginning hypnosis was used, later on experiments were carried out with full consciousness. In the end, it was believed that the causes of the many problems of human existence could be found not only in past partnerships and parent-child relationships or other conflicts, but could now be traced back to the process of birth, even to the embryonic phase, where they believed they had found the very first cause of certain traumas. But even that was not enough. One investigated alleged past lives, in different epochs and assumed to have found the cause of the present living conditions.
And so it went on and on, and those who were receptive to these “therapies” always found an excuse or a reason why their own behavior (misbehavior) was like that. Basically it is a very convenient way and in our society also a widespread peculiarity to blame the others and to look for the alleged reason in the past.
My parents are to blame that I could not grow up in royal wealth.
My siblings always took everything away from me.
My teachers did not teach me the school material properly
At the university, there was no more seat available.
In my job my boss is mobbing me.
And finally, I can’t help my outburst of violence, because someone else provoked me.
In Hermetic Academy we get to know other options of human behavior, which are based on self-initiative, personal responsibility, self-determination, ambition. Our environment, our fellow human beings are a mirror of certain aspects in us, which we usually cannot or do not want to consciously recognize. They are our shadow, from which we cannot run away in the end. However, we always have the possibility to live in the “now” and to decide now how we behave. There can still be so many so-called causes. Now, we can step out of our old patterns and start something new and stop playing the victim.
We are all equally victims and perpetrators. This is a very serious insight that “flower children” with rose-colored glasses rarely want to admit. Here too we see the hermetic law of balance and karma that we are both: Good and evil.
