A long time ago, I read a book called "Journey of Souls." It was a wonderful book and many of the ideas resonated with my experiences... Last week I found the sequel to the book -- "Destiny of Souls." [by Michael Newton, Ph.D.] I just started reading it and a paragraph jumped out at me that I'd like to share:
The energy of the soul is able to divide into identical parts, similar to a hologram. It may live parallel lives in other bodies although this is much less common than we read about. However, because of the dual capability of all souls, part of our light energy always remains behind in the spirit world. Thus it is possible to see your mother upon returning from a life even though she may have died thirty Earth years before and reincarnated again.
The ramifications of this possibility have been twirling around in my head ever since I read this. It doesn't matter if it's true or not. There's no way to actually prove or disprove the veracity of this scenario... so perhaps it's just a mind game, but I enjoy the "what if" exercise.
If part of my soul is still in the spirit world, could I (and how could I) contact that part of me? (Could this be the Higher Self we hear so much about?) If a loved one has reincarnated before you rejoin the spirit world, would you (or how would you) recognize that soul? If your soul is living two parallel lives, would those two be naturally attracted to each other? [And how weird is that?] If your soul is living parallel lives, what happens when one dies? Or do they both die at the same time? Are parallel lives able to glimpse each other's existence or experiences? When we attempt to contact those who have gone before us, are we trying to contact the part left behind? And do we know all the previous lives of other souls in the spirit world?
Who knows? Maybe we _are_ all just batteries in the Matrix....
