    It’s possible but I’m not 100% convinced.

    I do believe in reincarnation but the modern New Age/Buddhist beliefs on the matter do not resonate with my point of view. In my opinion, there are essential traits of the soul that are embedded and won't change through lifetimes: species, races, sex and sexual orientation. However, since the Gods oversee reincarnation, I do see the possibility of them punishing people who commit misdeeds by forcing them to reincarnate in poor or different conditions. For example, incessant race-mixers (people who keep promoting and involving themselves with miscegenation in multiple lifetimes) may be forcefully reincarned in another race as a punishment, as the Gods support racial preservation, especially the preservation of the Germanic race which is under attack on all fronts nowadays. Otherwise, a soul will be reincarnated in the most compatible body available when it's time.

    I also don't believe the soul is immortal at all but it's the path of the Hero to make it such through spiritual advancement. There is one immortal component in it, that made of the fifth element, but it's impersonal, differently from all the mortal components in it. This means that through repeated spiritual regression, the soul can and will consume all of its energy and will end up dissipating in the astral realm, unable to keep its form after the astral body expires. Final death. I believe many people are nearing that point nowadays and that a return to the racial practices of our ancestors is the key.

    Pre-Birth Experiences

    What Are Pre-Birth Experiences?

    Did you ever wonder where your spirit is before you were born? One scientist took a look at pre-birth experiences and their potential scientific tie to reincarnation.

    Mortality has a way of raising a multitude of questions in us.

    What does a dying person see? Do people actually have immaterial souls? Is there life after death? Is reincarnation real? Are ghosts real? What do people see in near-death experiences? Are there really lights and flashes of memory?

    These questions have been asked since the dawn of mankind, and have sparked myriads of different scientific studies performed by people who hope to uncover the mysteries that lie beyond the grave.

    Believe it or not, science hasn't fully ruled out the concept of a soul. In fact, some studies suggest that souls may recycle, entering new bodies once the old ones perish.

    The concept of reincarnation is far from new, but certain scholars have definitely taken a deeper look into it through modern eyes. Psychologists like Dr. Ian Stevenson have even gone so far as to catalog past life memories that have been backed by research.

    Most people have heard of past life experiences, but now, groups are getting increasingly curious about the phenomenon known as pre-birth experiences.

    What are pre-birth experiences?

    Pre-birth experiences are memories that children have of the world they knew before they were born. They have been reported around the world, and often have similar themes to near-death experiences.

    In many cases, kids will suddenly start talking about what life was like before they were born. Sometimes, kids will talk about what the hospital they were born in was like. Other times, they will talk about what life was like in the womb—or even earlier than that.

    It's actually also common for children to claim to have memories of past lives. The theory to explain this is that since they are earlier in their current life, they're closer to the previous life and can recall those old memories a little easier.

    The difference between a past life memory and a pre-birth memory deals with the life.

    With a past life experience, you remember being a person who lived ages ago—a person before the person you are today. An example of a past life experience would be waking up with memories of living in America during the Revolutionary War.

    Pre-birth memories, on the other hand, don't necessarily involve details of a past life. Rather, they tend to involve details that explain how you came to be in this life. What details are revealed in the experience can vary greatly from person to person.

    This can include memories in the womb as an unborn baby, memories of "choosing" the life you lead, as well as memories of seeing your parents before you were born. Some experiences even involve communication with family members before they're born.

    You don't have to be a kid to have pre-birth experiences.

    Though it's most often children who recall life before birth, many adults still claim to remember what they saw before they were born. There have been multiple documented cases where adults still claim to remember life before birth.

    Much like with past lives, a pre-birth memory can arise after falling asleep and having a dream that jogs latent memories. If you don't have pre-birth memories right now, it's always possible that you may be able to glimpse them later.

    You might wonder why seemingly mystical experiences are important, but it's a fascinating subject to learn more about.

    Children who discuss pre-birth memories tend to have similar topics they like to talk about. Children who talk about life before birth tend to tell their parents that they remember choosing them and also recall choosing their lives.

    In some situations, kids will also start talking about memories that parents had before they even gave birth to kids. When kids recall the events, they often will be events parents never discussed with them or things they couldn't have possibly known.

    When asked about minor details of their pre-birth experiences, children will often be able to answer them correctly. Sometimes, they may even mention details that parents themselves forgot until then!

    In many pre-birth memories, people recall seeing a guiding spirit that asks them to choose a parent. For example, on the OBERF website, one woman by the name of Mae distinctly remembers seeing her mom before she was born:

    "I have a memory of choosing this life. In the memory I am sitting, I guess, though with a different kind of body. All around me is white light, but with dimension and depth so that it is almost tangible, and it carries feelings and thoughts in it. To my left beside me is another spirit.I can't remember their face, and every time I look over to see, it isn't really a face or a "person," per say, but the presence of a guiding force, yet still a person, or a spirit. I am being shown a life on earth. It isn't on a screen but rather what I would describe as through a tunnel, or, a magnifying glimpse in the atmosphere that is below me and to the right a little. I see my mother and it is because of her that I choose this life." — Mae

    One of the most common things people report about pre-birth memories is "zooming in" on Earth or seeing scenes from Earth prior to birth.

    There's a very pervasive theme of seeing the world before you're born when discussing these kinds of experiences. Some just have gut feelings that they saw what Earth was like back in the day, while others claim to literally see the world turning around from space.

    People who have the "zoom in" experience most commonly have it as they see their first moments on Earth.

    Much like near-death experiences, pre-birth memories typically discuss seeing a bright light.

    A common cliche you hear when people talk about near-death experiences is seeing a bright white light and other souls. Interestingly enough, people who have pre-birth memories often describe the very same thing.

    It seems like people who die spend some time elsewhere, then return to Earth via the same bright white light. A person known only as EP explained that their pre-birth memory started with the feeling of drifting through a vast, white tunnel filled with other souls:

    "I am drifting up a tunnel. It is vast, and white. To my right and above, near me, is another being/person, whom I recall as possibly being female, and somehow ‘with’ me. We are drifting up. There are others drifting up too, although further away. " — EP

    Similar experiences are recalled by many people who claim to have dreams about the time before they're born. Considering that this phenomenon only recently started to be talked about, it's pretty fascinating to see the parallels between life and death.

    Seeing angels and spiritual guides is often mentioned as well.

    "To my left beside me is another spirit. I can't remember their face, and every time I look over to see, it isn't really a face or a "person," per say, but the presence of a guiding force, yet still a person, or a spirit." — Mae

    In many accounts of pre-birth memories, people claim to see other souls and guides that help them decide when and where they should reincarnate. Almost all of the guides people recall interacting with are loving and gentle, if not a bit stern.

    Many descriptions of the guides also note that they tend to pressure people to return to life. Some will tell spirits that they don't "have to return," but that it would make the world a better place if they did.

    It's wild, but it's true. Many of the people who report having memories in this category recall memories that they will live through, often paired with a feeling like they have to do better in this life than they did in the past.

    One person by the name of Dani explained a pre-birth memory as oddly prophetic, not to mention revealing about the nature of life itself:

    "The crucial fact about the experience (it is difficult for me to recall the exact sequence) is that I ‘remembered’ how I felt before coming to this life and how much I dearly cared for all the people I was to meet in this life...I also saw some crucial life events that were meant to happen, ‘before’ coming to this world, such as my meeting with and marrying my husband: in the experience it was like a picture of us together was taken to mark this event beyond space and time, but, at the same time, we were surrounded by distorting mirrors, and I saw how these crucial life events can be distorted in physical life. This ties in with the very difficult family situation we are going through at the moment." — Dani

    The sentiment that people will have an idea of what they will experience during their life is very prominent in these kinds of experiences.

    There's another category of pre-birth experience that's a little bit less explainable.

    Some people also consider pre-birth communication to be a form of before-birth experience. In these cases, the people around the unborn baby will feel like they have established a psychic line of communication with the child that stops once the baby is here. These things just happen naturally to anyone, not just people trying to increase their psychic awareness.

    Anecdotal evidence from delivery nurses and midwives note that they often get a weird "hunch" or direction from the unborn child to help an easier delivery happen.

    Mothers often mention dreaming of their child-to-be before they're born, or even "hearing" their child talking to them before they go into labor. This is a global phenomenon that can't really be explained away with dreams.

    Betty B. explained her pre-birth connection to her daughter beautifully:

    "The child in my dreams was around 10, heart shaped face and long curly hair. When the baby was born, I was convinced it was her I had conversations with, but in her toddler years her hair was straight, her face a little odd shaped, she looked nothing like the girl in my dreams. About the age of 5 or 6 she started getting curly hair and by the age of 10 definitely looked just like the girl in my dream. This child is so wise and intelligent and we are so very close. I do have 6 amazing grandchildren, but this one is a special human being. Not only do I see it, but her teachers and most people see it."

    So, how does it happen? Moreover, does it actually happen, or is it a simple delusion that occurs at random times?

    The phenomenon is fairly underreported, but it definitely makes you wonder.

    If what people see in their pre-birth experiences are real, what does that mean for humanity and life itself? Could it be that we really do reincarnate, or that we are here for a higher purpose? Are the skeptics of reincarnation wrong? Moreover, can science ever fully unveil what's going on here?

    5 Stories of People With Pre-Birth Memories

    Many people report memories of being in the womb, being born, and—in the most mystical cases—of being in another realm before entering the womb.

    It is difficult to prove this phenomenon exists outside of anecdotal evidence, but for many people this is a very real experience.

    Elisabeth Hallett, a registered nurse with a degree in psychology, wrote in her book “Stories of the Unborn Soul: The Mystery and Delight of Pre-Birth Communication” that we don’t hear often about pre-birth experiences because: “It’s scary to reveal an experience that contradicts the common view of reality. As one woman said, ‘I have been reluctant to share these experiences, mostly out of fear that people would think I was completely nuts.'”

    Boy Remembers Song Played on Way to Hospital

    On the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation website, Nicola E. told the story of a student of hers named Michael. Nicola was friends with Michael’s mother, who died when he was only a few months old. She had witnessed Michael’s birth, as she had gone to the hospital support her friend, who was a single mother. Nicola didn’t have further contact with Michael or his family after her friend died, until he was a student in her 4th grade class. Nicola and Michael didn’t discuss Michael’s mother much, but he knew they’d been friends.

    The students were asked to discuss their earliest memories. Michael put up his hand and proceeded to describe in detail traveling to the hospital with Nicola as she was going to attend his birth.

    He said he was in her grey car, he remembered the lyrics to the song that was playing, he saw Nicola stop at a gas station to ask for directions to the hospital, he saw her use a payphone in the hospital, and take a sweater that wasn’t hers in the waiting room and put it on.

    All of these things were true.

    She had a grey car at the time, but hadn’t since about two years after Michael’s birth. Some words Michael remembered from the song corresponded to a song she listened to often on a tape in that car. It was a rural hospital and she got lost on the way, so she stopped at a gas station for directions. The hospital didn’t have cell phone service, so she used a payphone. She was ashamed that she took a sweater that wasn’t hers; no one was around to claim it, it was just laying there, and she was very cold, so she put it on and kept it. She never told anyone about this.

    Like Waking From Anesthesia

    A man named Michael Maguire told Hallett his experience can be compared to waking from anesthesia:

    “I can clearly remember being in the spiritual, and then suddenly finding myself on Earth trapped in a baby’s body. It’s a bit like having an operation. One moment you’re in an operating theater counting back from 10; the next you find yourself in the recovery room. The major difference is that when you have an operation, you’re drowsy before and after the operation. With my experience, I was fully mentally alert before and after the transition to Earth.”

    Remembering Birth Complications

    A woman named Joelle told Hallett that when she was in her 30s, her aunt told her about complications during her birth, which her mother had never mentioned to her. Memories she seemed to have from the time of her birth made more sense to her after her aunt’s revelations.

    Her aunt told her that hers was an emergency birth at home. She was lifeless when she came out of the womb. Her aunt put her little body in another room, thinking she was dead. The midwife arrived and was thankfully able to revive the baby.

    What Joelle remembers is: “being in a place indescribable. It’s peaceful there, quiet, other people are with me. They are one. We are one. Not male, not female—I can see it in my mind’s eye but I can’t describe it. There are no voices, but I hear words. Someone says, ‘There’s a body, the person who had it felt it was too difficult a life and changed their mind.’ If I want it I have to go now, now. I hesitate, I hear a voice near me say, ‘No, it’s too soon, too soon, wait a while,’ but I can’t wait. I must go back. Someone says, ‘Decide now.'”

    ‘That’s the lady who took care of me before I was born!’

    The following story was shared on Reddit: “My coworker told me a story about his 4-year-old daughter. He and his wife took her to an old mission in town that’s a bit of a tourist attraction and has a statue of the virgin Mary near the entrance. His daughter immediately points to the statue and exclaims, ‘Daddy, I know her! That’s the lady who took care of me before I was born!'”

    A Reassuring Voice

    Linda Parrino shared her story on an forum about pre-birth experiences: “I remember floating on a cloud. There were pink and blue clouds as far as I could see. I was at peace, I heard a voice that sounded like a woman but I did not see her. She spoke softly and the communication was more like speaking with the mind. I remember her telling me it was my time to go to Earth and be … born. I responded that I wanted to stay there, where I was safe. She said you have to go now, don’t worry you will be fine. I have had this memory as far back as I can remember and it has been a comfort to me all of my life.”

    I do, but I'm not sure what rhyme or reason there is to it. I used to be obsessed with psychical research back in college, and I'm personally satisfied there is some sort of existence after death, and reincarnation factors in, in some way. A lot of people who believe in reincarnation seem to think they were some interesting figure in the past, and probably in some life they were, there are lots of interesting people, but more often than not, the more level headed research on the subject seems to indicate that people were someone or something mundane and unconnected to their current incarnation, which seems to fit well with beliefs in people coming back as different species, genders, etc. I seem to remember Ibn Fadlan's recounting of a Rus funeral stating that the chief's brother during the cremation covered his orifices to prevent his brother's spirit from entering into him and being reborn as one of his children. Maybe there is some eternal plan to it, maybe it's just some random cosmic event. I can't really say, of course. But I think reincarnation is a healthy belief system to uphold, because if you think you're going to come back again and again, you should strive to leave the world better than you found it.
