When I was backpacking in Asia, and found myself in a backpackers hostel, I ran into the book ‘The Convoluted Universe’ by Dolores Cannon. It was not really an eye-opener as somewhere I already knew this. But the details were quite mind-boggling. And it definitely helped me to understand things better. Like, ‘Where do I come from?’ and ‘What is the purpose of me being here on earth?’. It was just another piece of the puzzle for me.
2013 is a time of wonder, discovery, and empowerment for humanity. Never has there been more of a war on our freedom of thought and never has there been a greater deception taking place in regards to the truth. With so much change taking place, people are gravitating to the divine to answer the many questions which are arising. Who are we? Why are we here? Is there more to the physicality?
There are so many belief systems in our society which differ in their understanding of the universe, but what they all share in common is the notion that we have something driving our physical experience here on Earth, and that is a soul. The concept of reincarnation proposes that we are more than our physical bodies and that our higher vibrational self, or our soul, lives on after what we call “death”, and replants itself into a new body to live out the physical experience once again.
Reincarnation was and still is a major belief of the Middle Eastern theologies such as Hinduism and Sikhism. Other sublets of major religions such as Kabbalism, Scientology, Theosophy and Native American spirituality, also accept certain aspects of reincarnation into their belief systems.
The central idea held in common by these belief systems proposes that our soul or consciousness is an eternal energy which uses the physical planes of existence to learn about itself so that it can continue to expand its awareness and evolve with the ever changing energies of the universe. This is but a general explanation of the concept; within each separate religion and belief system is a varying understanding of the death and rebirth cycle. With so many different doctrines accepting pieces of the reincarnation theory, one has to assume that there must be some truth to the idea.
On the contrary, two of the world’s major religions, Christianity and Catholicism, both deny the notion that the soul cyclically replants itself into the physical plane, leaving one to speculate about the reason why. It is common knowledge that the Catholic Church is a major control structure which is so corrupt that it would take an entire set of articles to explain the history of its deceit, so we can openly suggest that perhaps their intention for promoting a one-and-only-life theology is taught to create fear and to control the masses on the basis that they will suffer if they do not obey.
The scientific community has also realized the undeniable and the otherwise unexplainable evidence surrounding reincarnation, with researchers like the late Ian Stevenson and Dolores Cannon leading the way in a branch of psychology called parapsychology.
Stevenson was head of psychiatry at the Virginia School of Medicine for 50 years and conducted over 40 years of research studies into reincarnation, particularly working with children who claimed to have memories, emotions, and even physical markings from previous lives. Stevenson believed that at an early enough age a child’s mind was still fresh and unadulterated by the thoughts and emotions of their current life, and some of these children would tell stories about being older family members who had passed away, or even about living in another country previously.
Stevenson spent much of his career traveling and trying to find the people and places that these children would talk about, and in many cases would discover that the people the children were talking about had indeed lived before exactly where these children had discussed. Even more peculiar was the fact that these young children would know unsettling details about the deceased peoples’ families and friends which were otherwise unexplainable for these children to know about. Unfortunately the bulk of the science community denied these first-hand accounts as mere coincidence and coined Stevenson as a “gullible” scientist.
Dolores Cannon is a regressive hypnotherapist, author, speaker, and parapsychologist who has written 17 books on the topic of past-life regression. Her books outline her client sessions as a hypnotherapist and contain the original transcripts from these conversations. The most interesting part to Cannon’s work is the fact that besides her clients recalling early childhood memories and past-lives on Earth, many of her clients regress to memories of non-human lives spanning other dimensions, galaxies, and universes, which supports the idea that life exists beyond Earth and that our souls are not specific to experiencing and replanting solely on this plane of existence.
In her 2011 book The Three Waves of Volunteers and the New Earth, Cannon takes her years of client session research and infers from it a hypothesis about the 2012 phenomenon. Cannon explains that groups of souls or “volunteers” have agreed to be born into human forms during the past few decades to help assist humanity through this current period of time called “the awakening”.
This awakening has been prophesized by numerous cultures and civilizations throughout history, such as the Egyptians, Mayans, and the Chinese to name a few. Cannon’s session transcripts contain information regarding energetic “councils” which govern different aspects of our universe; for example there are separate councils that govern the Earth, our Sun, the galaxies, and the universe and who watch over our progression as a civilization and who monitor our physical and spiritual evolution. Cannon has pieced together an intricate and beautiful explanation of the makeup of our universe from over 40 years of regression research and has even bridged quantum physics and science into the equation. It would be ignorant to simply dismiss the lifetime work of Ian Stevenson and Dolores Cannon.
Regardless of the different beliefs about reincarnation, the up rise in spirituality in the 21st century is undeniable. People are letting go of the limitations that most religions pose and are opening up the infinite potential that we and the universe possess. With the advent of modern quantum physics, we are beginning to see the assimilation of science into spirituality, or visa-versa. Furthermore, with so much unexplainable evidence coming out in regards to reincarnation, it is increasingly difficult to dismiss the matter. The questions of life such as who we are and why we are here are gaining clarity at a momentous speed, yet as the doors to these answers open, we are also coming to understand that the universe is more mysterious than we could ever imagine, and there is so much more to learn.
