What Is Reincarnation? Is Reincarnation and Resurrection the Same Thing?

Nope! Resurrection and reincarnation are actually two slightly different concepts. Here I am going to try my absolute best to explain to everyone these two very different concepts – because it has come to my attention that some folks get the two intermingled or mixed up – or even consider them to be basically the exact same concept. They’re not …

Resurrection is when the spirit re-enters THE SAME BODY, in the same life time, and in the same life circumstance. The most widely-known example of resurrection is of course the rise of Jesus Christ after his crucifixion. Reincarnation on the other hand is when the spirit decides, upon leaving the physical body, to be re-born into a NEW BODY, in a different time, and in and entirely different set of life circumstances.

Does Reincarnation and Resurrection Really  Exist, or Is It All Just Fantasy?

In terms of resurrection, besides the example of Jesus, did you know that thousands of people are resurrected every day? That’s right … thousands … and every day.

I’m sure you’ve heard about Near Death Experiences (I don’t know why they call it that because the people actually do die! There’s nothing “near” about it LOL!). You know those folks who for example pass away while on the operating table and they go on quite the beautiful journey … that is until their spirits decide to return to their bodies. That is a resurrection. People who have clinically died but then returned back into their bodies to tell us their stories.

Another clear example of a person resurrecting is when they die (momentarily) from a heart attack and are then brought back to life by the emt’s shocking them with thousands of volts of electricity with the defibrillator.  So yes indeed … resurrection occurs all the time.

So too does reincarnation. However, it is reincarnation that is slightly harder for some people to believe in (although I really don’t know why – if we can resurrect then why can’t we reincarnate?). Thankfully, because of the extensive research by the well-respected psychologist Dr. Ian Stephenson between the 1930’s and 1970’s, he’s “proven” it for us.

For the skeptics within us, to find “proof” of reincarnation, we must do what he did and look towards our children. Because young children  haven’t been exposed too much to social conditioning, they have such uninhibited innocence and can thus remember and see things that us adults cannot. Dr. Stephenson documented (and proven) well over 4000 cases from all over the world. I would outline some of those cases for you here, but knowing me I’d just continue on and on. There is in fact THAT MUCH documentation on past lives! So I will leave you to that – to do your own reading up on Dr Ian Stephenson and the cases he studied. Here is one link to get you started: Children Who Remember Past Lives

Why Are Children Studied and Not Adults For Reincarnation?

Well as mentioned children haven’t been exposed as much as what we have to social conditioning. As a result, and combined with that uninhibited innocence, they aren’t blocked spiritually. Their openness allows them to not only remember past lives, but to also see spirits for example.

Children start to talk about seeing spirits and remembering past lives usually when they first begin to talk – so anywhere between the ages of 2 and 4. But then, it is almost always between the ages of 5 and 8 that they start to “lose” those memories and abilities (due to more social conditioning exposure). And I personally can attest to that for it indeed was around age 8 that my recurring dreams about tornadoes finally stopped.

Does Everyone Reincarnate or Have Past Lives?

Actually, no! Indeed the majority of the population on the earth right now has in fact been reincarnated at least once before. However, in the last 20 years there have been a number of “new spirits” being born – spirits who have never been incarnated before. The majority of those new spirits make up the Indigo, Crystal and Rainbow children populace – and they have come here with very important purposes (which is another discussion for another day).

Upon passing, each and every one of us are given a choice. That’s right … a choice … as to whether we wish to reincarnate or not. We always will have free will … even in the spirit realm.  So with that said, some of us will be re-born while others will wish to stay in spirit. It’s left entirely up to our spirits on what we wish to do.

And with that choice – should we choose to return – we likewise choose when we will be re-born, what kind of life we will be born into, what parents will raise us, and what life circumstances/events we wish to experience.

Are There Any Clues or Signs That Point to Past Lives For Us Adults to Look For (within ourselves as well as our children)?

Yes. One I just mentioned a few moments ago: recurring dreams. I will tell you about one of my past lives at the end of this article in order to illustrate a few of these points.

Other signs/clues for your past lives include:

  • birthmarks
  • having unexplained fears, unexplained behaviors, unexplained beliefs
  • having knowledge about certain concepts/topics/interests that you’ve never been taught in this life time.
  • having a strange drawing or attraction/interest to certain time periods in history
  • having a weird sensation that you’ve known a certain individual before from somewhere (which shows you a past life connection between yourself and this particular individual)
  • acting older than what you really are (wise beyond your years – you are an ‘old soul’)
  • noticing a physical likeness between yourself and another individual that lived in the past

Another clue too is if you actually are aware of a certain past life, if you know the actual name/person that you were back then, you may notice parallels between your life today and the past life (i.e. same career path, same interests, same personality, or conversely the exact opposite – I did a past life reading for a person where in a past life they were severely disabled – in this current life they compensated for that past disability by excelling in sports, running, and other physical activities!).

I Want To Know If I Was Somebody Very Famous in a Past Life.

While this CAN happen … I hate to burst your bubble but you need to realize the millions of people on this planet today. It just isn’t feasible for everyone to have been someone noteworthy in a past life.  So if you expect to receive a past life reading telling you that you were a king or rock star, well I wouldn’t bet on it. Like I say of course there is that chance … but that chance in itself is relatively minute. Of course everyone wants to be famous – that’s our human ego talking. However, realistically-speaking not all of us can be. Also realize that we are born into whatever life experience/circumstance that our SPIRITS decided upon before even being born. So if we are meant to experience the fame and glamor, we will. But it entirely depends upon our spirit’s growth needs.

What Is the Purpose to Getting a Past Life Reading?

Delving into our past lives actually gives us very enlightening and interesting tidbits of information about ourselves. Past lives can explain our fears, our behaviors, our interests, our personalities, our habits, our beliefs and morals, etc. In knowing just what caused a certain fear for example allows us to ultimately HEAL and OVERCOME the fear in this life time. Looking into past lives basically allows us to understand ourselves … and on much deeper levels.

One of Lisa Caza’s Past Lives Explains TONS!

As many may already know, I have an INSANE fear of tornadoes. And when I say “insane” I am actually making an understatement.

As a young child, between the ages of 4 to 8, I endured incessant recurring dreams – actual nightmares – about being chased by tornadoes. Realize that at this age … I didn’t even know what a tornado actually was. But here I was having nightmares about them. And need I even say how I get even more fearful after having gone through an actual tornado when I was 12-13 years old! To learn more about that specific event you can read about it here

Fast forward 25 years later, I receive a rather impromptu reading; outlining a past life. This reader knew nothing about my crazy fear of tornadoes:

In this past life I was seen as a little girl roughly the age of 4 or 5. I was living on a farm with my family in the early 1900’s. Long story short a tornado touches down. My family race to the storm cellar. In the madness of it all, I was left behind – outside – to brave the tornado myself. I ran through some trees but of course I couldn’t outrun the tornado. The tornado ultimately blew trees down … one of which fell right on top of me. Killing me instantly. When they found me afterwards, a branch had impaled the right side of my chest and went the entire way through – to my right shoulder blade.

Now … shocker time. The reader went on to state: “You have a very nasty birthmark on your right shoulder blade don’t you.” Well, indeed I do. I am also extremely self-conscious about it to the point where I always hide it as I hate the comments when it’s seen (“Ewww! What happened to your back?” “Oh ouch how did you do that?” etc). I definitely don’t speak of it either. Dark brown and quite ugly. As a child, it was about the size of a man’s fist, but as I’ve aged it actually SHRUNK (which even doctors don’t understand how or why) to about the size of a quarter.

Well needless to say, that particular past life certainly explained my fear of tornadoes, my recurring dreams of being chased by them as a child, and even my ugly birthmark on my back. And that reader knew nothing about me. So what to do with this knowledge? Come to an acceptance, let it go, and understand WHY I have the fear so that I can ground myself emotionally and spiritually during storms so I don’t freak out like I used to! Once you understand where a fear comes from, you can then work on overcoming it.

The Ultimate Warrior Will Be Forever

© 2014 Lisa Caza Soul Psychics

It doesn’t matter how heartbroken I may be, I don’t normally post my sentiments when one of my idols and/or favorite celebrities pass on. However, today I just couldn’t let this one go by …

The Ultimate Warrior – James Hellwig – I remember when he first started in the WWF – I was about 10 or 11 years old I think … and he was my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE! What a thrill I would get when he’d race down the rampway, jump into the ring, and roar as he shook the bejeebers out of the top rope. I’d cheer every time and bounce on the couch in excitement … anticipating his almost guaranteed win for the week.

And I kid you not, a full 30 years later – Wrestlemania 30 – and I still greeted him in my usual excitement, pride and love. I was so happy to see him being inducted in the Hall of Fame (finally!) … and indeed making an appearance to once again connect with what we now call the ‘WWE Universe.’

However, even in my excitement I couldn’t help but notice how aged our warrior looked that night and I felt some concern building within me. I even commented about it to my husband, “Oh my God look how much he’s aged!” My husband, surprised himself at Warrior’s appearance, agreed. We wondered how old he was … both of us were thinking in his 70’s …

Well sadly, the Ultimate Warrior suddenly passed yesterday (Tuesday, April 8th, 2014) … with the cause of death being reported as unknown. According to official news sources he collapsed outside an Arizona hotel while walking to his car with his wife. This has happened only two days after appearing on Wrestlemania 30 … two days after my noticing how aged he truly did look.

When the news hit Facebook and other social media, I was shocked. And then shocked even more when I learned how old the Ultimate Warrior really was. He was only 54 years old.

Yet, at the same time … for some reason … I wasn’t shocked. I knew “something wasn’t right” from the moment I laid eyes on him that night. In learning of his true age, well that pretty much confirmed it for me.

I have to say that I am feeling very strongly that Ultimate Warrior had been ill for quite some time – and was definitely hiding it from all of us – I think even to the extent of some family as well. I noticed how he didn’t smile as broadly that night as what you would normally have expected. Well, he was tired … tired of fighting that battle going on inside him but was trying to put on a “happy face mask” for OUR benefit. I feel him as having a somewhat difficult time breathing or catching his breath … and some sort of strange heaviness in his chest. I am also getting the strong sense that he actually KNEW that he was going to die relatively soon … he was preparing for it. But I don’t think he knew that he’d be going THAT soon!

Because I don’t allow my abilities to delve into health concerns, I am usually unable to see the actual cause of death. However, in this case I do feel that two different things are coming into play: a long-time silent (in other words ‘secret’ from the public) battle with some sort of illness, as well as his heart finally giving way from all the pressure. The heart will most likely be proven as being the main cause of his death (heart attack), but I am feeling that we need to consider what caused the heart to give in to begin with. As I say two different things here are going on: a serious long-term illness and heart failure.

I do feel connected to our warrior this evening, and as most who know me I don’t normally perform “on demand” mediumship readings due to how my ability actually works. However, I do hear him – and he is loud and clear … and he is in fact instructing me to give all of his Ultimate Warrior fans this message:

“Yes I’m shocked that I went that quickly, but hey at least it was fast. I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way other than to have been in bed instead of on the side of a street! I did hide my illness and for that I am sorry. But I wanted to be remembered the way that you all do remember me now: smiling, happy, strong and proud. Don’t you dare mourn me! I go in peace and happiness. I have no regrets. Remember my farewell to you all: nobody becomes a legend on their own. I meant YOU – YOU created my legend. Not me! And because of you, my spirit WILL run forever.”

With that last message, I’m somewhat confused. I do wish to ask if anyone has heard this apparent farewell speech? He had to have said it either Sunday (which I don’t think so as I watched the entire Wrestlemania – I would have seen/heard it if he talked that night) or perhaps Monday on Raw – which I did not watch. Either way if someone can confirm him as actually having said a farewell speech – and if you could write in with what he actually did say, that would be great. If he made a speech … somehow I missed the darn thing; I would have loved to have heard him.

He was (and still is) one of the most passionate, electrifying and loving spirits, who was truly genuine and loving not just to his children, wife and family, but to all of his fans. He was down to earth and full of wisdom – he bore his name well for he was a true warrior … in this life as well as in a past life (he was a native american brave warrior – Apache by the feel of it). He taught us to always believe … to believe not in just ourselves but also in the idea that anything is possible. He also believed in always taking care of/considering other people first rather than oneself – just as his deer totem guide suggests: sacrificing oneself for the greater good of all. And you know, I was taught by my native elders that what he stood for is actually what being a warrior is REALLY all about! Being a warrior has got absolutely nothing to do with raging testosterone, brawn, tough guy attitudes, guts and muscle. It is about being loving and considerate to others, helping others whenever possible, and … being gentle even behind the war paint. Those were his messages that he hopes will get through to folks.

R.I.P. Ultimate Warrior … you will never be forgotten, and will forever be loved and held close to our hearts. I just wish that you could have shared with us your battle health-wise so that we too could support you … as we always have.

Editor’s Note: It has been confirmed by a reader of Lisa’s blog that he did in fact give a “farewell address”; which was aired on Monday Night Raw. But we do not yet know what was said within that speech.
