Ok so my mom and I were having a conversation about our "ancestors" and our family tree, a conversation that is quite common for a lot of us. Then it hit me, could it be possible that we may be our own ancestors? I mean, for those of us who believe in re-encarnation. I have heard the stories of grand parents re encarnating into a grandaughter's child, or a lost brother or sister re encarnated into a niece or nephew, and so on. You know, for some of us that do stay within our "families." Can it be that we once were our "great uncle henry born in 1865"? I mean why not? Some of us who choose or have some sort of purpose to stay within our "family" may have re encarnated into who we are now. It was just the silliest thought, but one that boggles my mind. Not only that, but we can actually be our own ancestors because we have been re encarnated over and over and over again, lived in so many time periods. The best way I can see it is that we are constantly being "recycled" into knew bodies for a purpose, unless new souls are created, which I don't know much about that. Does anyone have some light to shed upon this subject? What do you think? Haven't you ever wondered why you may have an incredible resemblance to your great great grandmother or behave like some ancestor in ur family tree or people say you are just like so and so when they were a little child. I am not talkin genetics here, I am goin further, I am sure most of you who have had an experience like this can understand. For example, a man lost his younger brother when they were kids, and years later that man had a son who looked, acted, and knew soo many of the things that his deceased brother did. He said it felt like his brother was back. The son was his brother re encarnated. Who is to say our late late family members from 1749 or something like that can't be us re-encarnated?? Could we be our own ancestors???
