4 Signs That This Isn’t Your First Life On Earth

By Steven Bancarz| Reincarnation is the spiritual belief that souls leave the body at the death of the physical body and the re-enter another physical body after spending a brief time in the spirit world.  Some people come back to alleviate Karma, some come back for the purpose of further developing their souls, and some come back for the purpose of service and helping others evolve.  There is an overwhelming amount of scientific evidence for the existence for reincarnation, some of which is summarized in an article I wrote here.

How can you tell if you have lived before in the past?  There are different ways you can tell if you have lived on earth before.  You can visit a hypnotherapist and receive a past-life regression, you can meditate and feel that you have lived before intuitively, or you can reflect on some of the characteristics you have as a person and see if they imply you may have lived before.

It’s certainly the case that you may have lived before and do not possess these characteristics, but here are 5 that I think are pretty universal and indicative of an old soul.  Here are 4 signs this isn’t your first life on earth:

1) You Get A Good Read On People

From a young age, you have been able to get a really good read on people.  From watching someone interact for just a few minutes, you are able to identify the characteristics that person would have and the lifestyle they live.  It’s almost like you have this software that allows you to look around and download the information on other souls.  This is because you have seen the archetype of that person before in a past life and are familiar with the general behaviour and psychology of that archetype.  You have interacted with thousands of people throughout the course of your souls history, so there is really no archetype you haven’t interacted with yet.

This doesn’t mean you are judgmental, it just means you are observational.  You may find yourself at parties or social gatherings looking around every once in a while checking things out.  Watching people interact, observing the exchanges of energy that are occurring during conversation.  You may even feel more comfortable as a distant observer than as a participant.  It feels natural to you.

Having the ability to get a good read on people has also given you a really good bullsh*t detector.  When someone is lying to you, you know it.  You notice the disassociation in their eyes, the shift in their energy field, the change in the way they pronounce words.  You’ve been through this place many times before, so you aren’t socially naive, even though you may have not had much social interaction in this life.  You’ve always been hard to manipulate because you can see into the real intentions and desires of other people.  You are just good at feeling people out intuitively.

2) You Enjoy Isolation

You enjoy time to yourself.  Not because you like being lonely, but because you like being alone.  You are content with just being by yourself.  You would rather been on a dock by yourself all night under the stars than at a party somewhere, and you would rather be in a forest alone all day than at a shopping mall.  This is not because you are a hermit, but because you don’t need society in order to validate your sense of self.  Your own worth comes from your relationship with yourself and your spirituality, not from peer-approval and social acceptance.

When you are thrown into this world for the first time, your inclination is to learn how to play the game and make a comfortable life for yourself.  When you have been here many times before, you already know it’s a game, so you don’t even bother trying to play it anymore.

You may still like to go out and be social, but it doesn’t serve you in the same way it does for others.  You are used to being around other people, and have been for centuries.  You know what to expect.  At the end of the day, the most satisfying thing for you is feeling peace within yourself, generated from within yourself.   This leads into our next point.

3) You Don’t Fit In…You REALLY Don’t Fit In.

You stick out like a sore thumb wherever you go.  School, work, family gatherings.   You’re whole life, you have always felt a little out of place.  Being human is still something you’re getting used to, and may never get used to.  Behaving “properly” in public seems forced for you, and trying to maintain a meaningless conversation is painful for you. You don’t quite understand why humans operate the way they do.

It’s kind of like being a lion who thinks he is a sheep his whole life.  He behaves like a sheep and thinks like a sheep.  After living a few lives pretending to be a sheep, he realizes he is something much more than that.  He discovers himself and transcends his sheep-hood.  When he goes back in to life again pretending to be a sheep, it feels unnatural for him because now he is just role playing.

You’re the one who will start a discussion about things like lucid dreams, animal rights, and spirituality while everyone else wants to talk weather and sports.  They’ll sometimes initiate the conversations because they are interested or intrigued with you, but most of the time it’s you who will break the film of social convention.  But it’s not only a difference in interests that makes you stick out.

It’s most importantly the fact that you don’t really know how to fit in.  Maybe you have tried before, and it felt awkward and failed.  And that’s OK.  You don’t understand how some people are happy as carbon copies, and it’s unnatural to you to be conventional.  You may do things that other people will call “weird” such as meditate on a bench in public somewhere, or maybe you’ll stop yourself in the parking lot to soak up the sun rays.  You have more “quirks” than the average person, not because you are trying to be different, but because you don’t know how to be “normal”.

4) You Have An Evolved Soul

People may come to you to seek advice, even though you may be younger than them by decades.  They value your inputs because you have a good deal of insight and wisdom for your age.  Without getting egoic about it, you seem to have more understanding and a more universal outlook to life’s challenges than the average person.  Perhaps this is why you are here: to help others reach that same place.

You’ve lived a few lives here, so you understand the importance of things like patience, self-honesty, and introspection.  What takes some people 10 years to learn it may only take you 1 year to learn because your soul has already went through this before and is used to recognizing the signs. Having “heart to hearts” with someone who is struggling seems natural to you, because you are almost always able to assist them with what they are going through.  You will still encounter your own adversity in life, but you approach it with maturity and level-headedness.  You are a quick learner when it comes to the lessons of life, and you are very good at listening to what life is trying to show you about yourself.

And quite frankly, it’s acquiring more wisdom and experience that you value the most in life.  You aren’t really concerned with social status, fame, or making a nice cozy nest for yourself.  You desire to grow spiritually, to evolve into a better person, and to help other people do the same.  This feels most natural and rewarding to you.

There are of course many more characteristics of people who have lived on earth before, but I think these are some of the most prevalent ones.  If there are any I missed, let me know in the comments!

Here is a video of a 9 year old who is way beyond his years.  This is a perfect example of someone who has lived here at least once before:

The Akashic Records: What Are They & Do They Actually Exist?

“All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or tenuity beyond conception, filling all space, the Akasha or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never ending cycles, all things and phenomena.”– Nikola Tesla, Man’s Greatest Achievement, 1907

Depending on the philosophy or religion cited, “Akasha” generally has the same core meaning.  It’s Sanskrit (primary sacred language of Hinduism) for “aether,” in both the elemental and metaphysical sense. The existence of this ‘substance,’ for lack of a better term, has been postulated by scientists and philosophers from ancient cultures, traditions, and faiths which date back thousands of years. The theme has been present from Eastern mysticism/philosophy all the way into the West and esoteric philosophy.

Keep in mind we are talking about Akasha here and not the Akashic Records.

“And they allowed Apollonius to ask questions; and he asked them of what they thought the cosmos was composed; but they replied; “Of elements.” “Are there then four?” he asked. “Not four,”said Larchas,  “but five.” “And how can there be a fifth,” said Apollonius, “alongside of water and air and earth and fire?” “There is the ether,” replied the other, “which we must regard as the stuff of which gods are made; for just as all mortal creatures inhale the wire, so do immortal and divine natures inhale the ether.” “Am I,” said Appollonius, “to regard the universe as a living creature?” “Yes,” said the other. – The Life of Apollonius of Tyana, Philostratus, 220AD (source)

It’s basically the basis of all things in the material world, and in various philosophies it’s considered to be the invisible driving force behind the creation of matter. According to many it’s the source of energy for material manifestation. This is intriguing, because quantum physics has been showing that human thoughts, intentions, emotions and more could have some sort of direct effect on our physical material world.  Modern day scientific theories do not recognize the real existence of Akasha, but the fact that quantum physics has shown us that space is not empty is certainly lending more credibility to this ancient concept, in my opinion.

“The aakaash is not destructible, it is the primordial absolute substratum that creates cosmic matter and hence the properties of aakaash are not found in the material properties that are in a sense relative. The aakaash is the eternally existent, superfluid reality, for which creation and destruction are inapplicable….Our eyes are blind to the reality of spirit, scientific experiments cannot detect it directly, since our experiments can detect only the material properties which are not the attributes of Akasha.” – (Idham thadhakshare parame vyoman. Parame vyoman) – Paramahamsa Tewari, Engineer, Physicist, and Inventor, “Spiritual Foundations,” www.tewari.org

The Akashic Records

What are the Akashic Records? According to various scholars in the realm of theosophy (esoteric philosophy), the Akashic Records are a kind of database which contain a record of the soul’s journey. According to Alice A. Bailey, an author of more than two dozen books on theosophical subjects:

The akashic record is like an immense photographic film, registering all the desires and earth experiences of our planet. Those who perceive it will see pictured thereon: The life experiences of every human being since time began, the reactions to experience of the entire animal kingdom, the aggregation of the thought-forms of a karmic nature (based on desire) of every human unit throughout time. Herein lies the great deception of the records. Only a trained occultist can distinguish between actual experience and those astral pictures created by imagination and keen desire.

— From Light of the Soul, “The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali – Book 3,” multiple sources on  Google

According to the late Edgar Cayce, the Akashic Records can be seen as the universe’s supercomputer, a central storage facility of all information for every individual who has ever lived throughout the cosmos. Apart from recording the events that occur in your life, they record every act, deed, word, thought, feeling, emotion, intent, and motive. Apparently, the records contain the entire history of every soul since the dawn of creation. (source)

They are records kept of a soul from the time it leaves its point of origin.

“The Edgar Cayce readings suggest that each of us writes the story of our lives through our thoughts, our deeds, and our interactions with the rest of creation. This information has an effect upon us in the here and now. In fact, the Akashic Records have such an impact upon our lives and the potentials and probabilities we draw toward us that any exploration of them cannot help but provide us with insights into the nature of ourselves and our relationship to the universe. There is much more to our lives, our histories, and our individual influence upon our tomorrows than we have perhaps dared to imagine. “(source)

Charles Webster Leadbeater, an influential member of the Theosophical Society and an author on occult subjects, has made similar claims, stating that the records hold the history of Atlantis and various other civilizations, including Lumeria.

H.P. Blavatsky (1831-1891), a Russian immigrant, mystic, and founder of the Theosophical Society, writes that the Akasha is “one of the cosmic principles and is a plastic matter, creative in its physical nature, immutable in its higher principles. It is the quintessence of all possible forms of energy, material, psychic, or spiritual; and contains within itself the germs of universal creation, which sprout forth under the impulse of the Divine Spirit.” (source)

Philosopher, educator, and founder of the Anthroposophical Society, Rudolf Steiner believed that humans (and himself) have the ability to perceive information beyond the material world. Please keep in mind that this isn’t a ‘pseudoscientific’ idea; for a selected list of downloadable peer-reviewed journal articles reporting studies of psychic phenomena, mostly published in the 21st century, you can click HERE.

Steiner writes:

Man can penetrate to the eternal origins of the things which vanish with time. A man broadens his power of cognition in this way if he is no longer limited to external evidence where knowledge of the past is concerned. Then he can see in events what is not perceptible to the senses, that part which time cannot destroy. He penetrates from transitory to non-transitory history. It is a fact that this history is written in other characters than is ordinary history. In gnosis and in theosophy it is called the “Akasha Chronicle.” . . . The one who has acquired the ability to perceive in the spiritual world comes to know past events in their eternal character. They do not stand before him like the dead testimony of history, but appear in full life. In a certain sense, what has happened takes place before him. (source)

Are The Akashic Records Real?

With the information above, I just wanted to provide a very basic and brief description of the Akashic Records. I still have a lot of research to do to further my understanding, but the essential idea has always been pretty clear to me.

So, is there any ‘proof” for the existence of the Akashic Records? Well, we are limited by modern day understandings of what qualifies as proof. Anything that cannot be perceived by our physical senses, or something that is (for most) impossible to perceive, it’s hard to validate its existence. The truth is, there is really no way to ‘prove,’ in the material way that we currently define proof, the existence of the Akashic Records, because it cannot be seen, touched, heard, or otherwise measured. But this doesn’t mean we can’t theorize, and as Albert Einstein once said, “everything you can imagine is real.”

The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” – Nikola Tesla

The same can be said for consciousness, or factors that we commonly associate with consciousness; thoughts, feelings, emotions, perception, and more are directly correlated with our physical material world, and this is backed by science. This is most demostrated by the quantum double slit experiment, and the parapsychological studies that are linked in this article above. (source) You can read more about thishere.

As for the nature of consciousness itself, that’s a topic for another article.

So, we do know that just because something can’t be seen, touched, heard, or measured, does not mean it can’t still have a direct effect on our physical material world. And we do know that (some) ancient philosophies and esoteric teachings have been validated by modern day science. As far as proving the existence of the Akashic Records, it doesn’t seem to be possible.

Again, one great argument for its existence is the fact that it is an ancient concept, and occult (occult means the quest for truth, unfortunately this word carries a negative connotation) authors have been writing about for years. We’ve seen other concepts, like the atom, or the energy that exists all around us, or near death experiences (NDE’s) and out of body experiences, written about in ancient times, as well as studied by modern day science, with some promising results. Ancient peoples may not have understood the ‘science’ behind the phenomena they observed, at least in the way way understand science, but their theories often prove to be correct nevertheless. Perhaps they had better methods for gaining wisdom? There are countless examples where ancient societies are concidered much more ‘advanced’ than us, but we live in a different time.

I personally do believe that there is some sort of ‘database’ out there that we are all connected to, and everything about us (physical and non physical) can be found there. But I cannot say it exists for certain, nor can I provide any proof for its existence. All I can say is that in my heart I believe it to be true. I would also like to include that I do not feel that these “records” are used for judgement in any way.

“The nature of energy is to be understood. The properties of space have to be intuitively derived from the available scientific data. We have to pick out a single elementary material particle to construct the material universe and to establish the unity of the material worlds. We need to know the attributes of the single Substance, the nonmaterial Akasha to establish the Unity behind the diverse scientific and spiritual phenomena. We need to realize the agency of Consciousness, the principle of life and death, and the intelligence of the Universe. We can certainly know these phenomena through a scientific approach but the science that shall answer the above questions shall not be the current science. It shall be a new science inclusive of a spiritual base. And that shall set the stage for a merger of science and spirituality.” — Paramahamsa Tewari, Engineer, Physicist, and Inventor, “Spiritual Foundations,” www.tewari.org

What happens when an entire country becomes infested with demons?

Vatican City, Jun 16, 2015 / 03:09 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Can a country with deep Christian roots like Mexico find itself at the mercy of demons? Some in the Church fear so.

And as a result, they called for a nation-wide exorcism of Mexico, carried out quietly last month in the cathedral of San Luis Potosí.

High levels of violence, as well as drug cartels and abortion in the country, were the motivation behind the special rite of exorcism, known as “Exorcismo Magno.”

Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, the archbishop emeritus of Guadalajara, presided at the closed doors ceremony, the first ever in the history of Mexico.

Also participating were Archbishop Jesús Carlos Cabrero of San Luis Potosí, Spanish demonologist and exorcist Father José Antonio Fortea, and a smaller group of priests and lay people.

The event was not made known to the general public beforehand. According to Archbishop Cabrero, the reserved character of the May 20 ceremony was intended to avoid any misguided interpretations of the ritual.

But how can an entire country become infested by demons to the point that it’s necessary to resort to an Exorcismo Magno?

“To the extent sin increases more and more in a country, to that extent it becomes easier for the demons to tempt (people),” Fr. Fortea told CNA.

The Spanish exorcist warned that “to the extent there is more witchcraft and Satanism going on in a country, to that extent there will be more extraordinary manifestations of those powers of darkness.”

Fr. Fortea said that “the exorcism performed in San Luís Potosí is the first ever carried out in Mexico in which the exorcists came from different parts of the country and gathered together to exorcise the powers of darkness, not from a person, but from the whole country.”

“This rite of exorcism, beautiful and liturgical, had never before taken place in any part of the world.  Although it had taken place in a private manner as when Saint Francis (exorcised) the Italian city of Arezzo,” he stated.

The Spanish exorcist explained, however, that the celebration of this ritual will not automatically change the difficult situation Mexico is going through in a single day.

“It would be a big mistake to think that by performing a full scale exorcism of the country everything would automatically change right away.”

Nevertheless, he emphasized that “if with the power we’ve received from Christ we expel the demons from a country, this will certainly have positive repercussions, because we’ll make a great number of the tempters flee, even if this exorcism is partial.”

“We don’t drive out all the evil spirits from a country with just one ceremony. But even though all will not be expelled, those that were removed are not there anymore.”

Fr. Fortea emphasized that “when the exorcists of a country drive out its demons, it has to be done in faith. You’re not going to see anything, feel anything, there’s not going to be any extraordinary phenomenon. We have to have faith that God conferred on the apostles a power, and that we can use this power.”

“In any case, if this ritual were to be carried out in more countries once year, before or after, this would put an end to any extraordinary manifestations which would show us the rage of the devil. Because, without a doubt, the demons hate to be driven out of a place or to be bound with the power of Christ.”

The Spanish exorcist said that “it would be very desirable that when there’s an annual meeting of exorcists in a country, a ritual such as this exorcismo magno that took place in Mexico be performed.”

He also emphasized that a bishop “can authorize its occurrence once a year with his priests in the cathedral.”

“The bishop is the shepherd and he can use the power he has received to drive away the invisible wolves from the sheep, since Satan is like a roaring lion prowling around looking for someone to devour, and the shepherds can drive away the predator from the victim,” he concluded.

Put an Ice Cube at This Point on Your Head and Witness the Miracle

You have probably never thought that a daily use of ice cubes can help your body heal and recharge and make you a bit younger and energetic. It can happen if you put an ice cube at the point where your head and neck are connected. This technique is closely related to Chinese acupuncture and according to it, the point where you have to place the ice cube is called Feng Fu, which translates to “wind mansion”.

Just hold the cube for 20 minutes on the Feng Fu point. Naturally, at first you will begin to feel freezing, but after thirty or forty seconds you will feel warmth.

By doing this every day you will begin to feel euphoria. This is because the ice cube will cause for endorphin to be released in your blood. But, there are many more benefits from using this technique.

For example:

• Sleep improvement;
• Better digestion;
• No more frequent colds;
• Less joint pain, toothaches and headaches;
• Breathing improvement and better cardiovascular system;
• No more degenerative spine changes and management of neurological disorders;
• Help with sexually transmitted and gastrointestinal infections;
• No thyroid gland disorders;
• No hypotension, hypertension and arthritis;
• No asthma;
• Help with malnutrition or obesity;
• No Cellulite;
• Better menstruation and help with impotence, infertility, endocrine glands and frigidity;
• No insomnia, chronic fatigue, depression, stress and management of psycho-emotional disorders;

This method helps the body to return its balance, so technically it is not a cure, but a rejuvenation method. Simply put, your body gets higher on life.

However, the method may show contraindications in cases of schizophrenia, epilepsy, pacemakers, and during pregnancy.
