PSYCHIC SANDRA: DEJA VU TRUE; Reincarnation is our teacher.

Byline: Sandra Ramdhanie

REINCARNATION is the belief that, when we die, we can choose to live again in another body, place and time.

It is a fundamental belief in many of the world's religions, such as Hinduism and Buddhism, and is growing in popularity in the western world.

A single human lifetime is seen as only one stage in the development of the spirit.

Our actions in this lifetime generate a force known as Karma, which can be good or bad.

The Law of Karma is sometimes mistaken as punishment for misdeeds in past lives. Karma is NOT punishment. It is the law of cause and effect, that is, for every action there is a reaction.

A person who hurts or harms others in this lifetime may choose to re-incarnate as a victim of similar abuse in order to learn compassion.

Reincarnation is not forced on us as a punishment, it is something we can choose to do.

Many people choose not to re-incarnate while others live many lives, in their quest for knowledge and spiritual development. Parents often notice unusual wisdom in their children, and comment, "He's been here before".

Children under the age of seven have memories of past lives, and will talk about "my other house" or "my other mummy".

As adults we often have glimpses of past lives in our dreams. Dreams of strange or exotic places, or where you are wearing clothes of another era or culture, can be memories of a past life. Having a fascination with another country, or period in history, means you may have lived before, in that place or time.

Deja vu is the experience of visiting a strange place, and recognising it, feeling you have been there before.

This often means you have, in fact been there before, in a past life.

We rarely receive much recognisable information about our past lives, but past life therapists and past life regression (hypnosis) can help us find out more about and what we were in a previous existence.

The purpose of reincarnation is to teach us to evolve, develop and grow spiritually.

We come back to learn lessons such as compassion towards others less fortunate than ourselves, and acceptance of people of a different race, religion or culture.

We come back not to suffer, but to learn.
