    Hi all
    My OH believes that he won’t be able to reincarnate because he doesn’t have (and we cant have) children. This is a very upsetting overpowering mindset for him because to him he wont live again after his death. Is this true?
    (I was brought up in the Christian faith so my beliefs are completely different.)

    You may feel more responsibility to reincarnate (or not) if you have kids.

    Other than that i've been people I have no obvious relation too, only the cycle of events i've lived mirrors between lifetimes. Perhaps to get another look at it or see how I handle it this time.

    A stronger obligation or draw, as kids are a big part of life. At the same time so few people actually consider the weight of the future on the now, and how much more important it is than the present moment. Everything is magnified from now, so what seems small now can grow exponentially. If you can see kids like that, a family tree expanding outward, you might understand why that weight of obligation exists and also how you are only one small part on that family tree. Tell him to take heart, if he doesn't personally have kids, there are probably 500 branches of that family tree somewhere nearby to relate to and look after if that is his wish.

    The only point I can speak to, is you can view the world through your relations, but as i've said those relations can be very widespread. If he is spiritual in this way, tell him to ask, pray or meditate to his ancestors for guidance, he might find he has a much bigger family than first expected. :D.

    If it is any consolation, I have remembered many lives where I was childless, and I am still coming back to the physical, continuing with the cycle of reincarnation. I actually only remember one life where I had a child. The presence/absence of children doesn't seem to have affected whether or not I reincarnate, I just keep coming back.

    Lol that mindset, reincarnation continues regardless so long there are available bodies and one can go a long ways with this even if there was an extinction event down the road the souls would go to whatever was available even if it meant another world or realm ect so no one isn't required to have kids. Plus not everyone gets such opportunities in some lives be it health problems, accidents, war, and so many other inconveniences ect.

    Hi Jeanie,

    I suspect this feeling or conviction is, itself, a past life holdover. There are apparently a variety of indigenous groups/tribes that believe in family reincarnation. Someone may want to check this out. I think it may also be current in some larger groupings that hold reincarnation beliefs. So, in this scenario great grand-father is likely to come back as his own great grand-son, etc. I haven't heard whether great grand-dad is blocked from return if the line dies out, but perhaps that is also true somewhere.

    In any case, this seems to be an unusual mind-set in most that believe in reincarnation, and I know of nothing in the scientific research to support it. However, unless (1) he has a present-life background as part of a group that believes that reincarnation is limited to one of your own descendants, the fact that this seems to be an established truth in his mind does make me suspect that (2) it is part of a left-over but well-established belief system from prior lifetime(s) in such a group.

    Just guessing, but an interesting query.

    Cordially,
    S&S

    PS--Just droppin' by :cool:

    A thought to ponder - One of the reasons reincarnations are disjointed and often difficult to recall is that families are disjointed and difficult to recall. As above so below, mico - macro and all that. When families were strong and people more tied to their heritage, bloodline and the earth under their feet, souls chose to reincarnate into their family/tribe/community more often. What is left of my family is spread all over my country and I have rarely ever seen them, many I never even met before they died. So there is less focused connection there. I dislike this but felt I needed to stop by and post it anyway, right place right time.

    All the best.

    Sounds more like a feeling of shame for not having and not being able to have kids. I'm not sure where you live but I know there is a huge pressure in my country to have kids. Honestly though I'm not entirely sure I want to have kids. Kids are great and all (I have several nieces and nephews) but at the same time I am aware of how much responsibility they are and I feel I am just learning to take care of myself let alone a kid. Also if it helps you and your OH any some of the most successful people in my family are those who never had any kids. One of my older sisters has no kids and she is now a radiologist. I really think part of the reason she is so successful is because she never had to worry about the responsibility of a kid. Also I think it's best that she didn't have any kids because she can be impatient with kids. As for not being able to reincarnate because you have no kids I've never heard of such a belief.

    good morning- this is just my opinion, and a bit of a separate tangent- but you had me thinking, thank you.

    i have struggled over the years with whether i am to go on living or not. i have a feeling i am going to face dissolution/dissemination. in a way, we are all going to end- and perhaps the "i" that does die is not the same self that gets reincarnated. and for many of us there is a confusion.

    whether i will continue on or not, i am trying to make peace in this life now. i believe god provides, in ways we can't recognize right away. i don't know what the future, in this lifetime, holds for me. but if this is it- i would rather find peace and experience that.

    Realjanie,

    Not every lifetime that soul comes back to the physical plane requires to have children. From a much larger perspective as soul you are contributing to the balance of the population growth by not having any. I have heard it said that the perfect human population for this planet without stressing out the natural resources is about one billion.

    It took over 2 million years of human prehistory and history for the world's population to reach 1 billion in the late 1800's. And only another 200 years more to reach 7 billion today. So we are way over that mark. If you really want children its not a bad idea to adopt and give a child a loving home that does not have one. That itself is good karma right there. In any case soul has the whole physical universe with billions upon, billions, upon billions of other exoplanets out there to chose from to reincarnate on. We are not the only real estate available you know. And this planet won't last forever. As our sun ages and expands and becomes brighter we have less than a million years left before all life here is totally gone. By then most souls that have not cycled off from reincarnating on the physical plane will have moved on to other planetary systems within our milky way galaxy. And so the beat go's on.

    P.

    OK, I got it.

    As this planet is overpopulated, there is no shortage in available bodies to incarnate into.

    But nevertheless, as there are many more new available bodies in what some call "god forsaken countries" than in the "normal" countries, those of us that haven't bothered to have children in this reincarnation (and not only they), will next reincarnate with a greater probability into some of those awful countries where no one wants to reincarnate into, than otherwise.

    Nothing karmic, just arithmetic.

    So far so good.

    IMHO

    Best Regards.
