I saved this post for after Halloween so as not to freak you out too much. But you might have relived one of your deaths last week. (Yes, I’m discussing a serious side-effect of reincarnation.)
What was your costume? Did it have blood? Any implements of death or torture sticking out of you? Or were you a Naughty Nurse? An Aging Crone? A Starfleet Officer? A Priest?
You see, death has come in many ways, and not all of them as gruesome as you might think. Given how many times we’ve passed through it, the simplest of farmer’s coveralls might be the ones you were wearing the day the bull got the best of you. You’ve undoubtedly “relived a death,” or re-attuned to lives in which you died, hundreds of times already.
So why are we even discussing it? Because some deaths caused more trauma than others, and those might be the ones you’ve decided to arrange a healing around. If you reach a point in your life where your Plan is to address lingering fears and physical weaknesses—the psychic scars of this traumatic “death” experience in your eternal life—then you will probably relive that death with more drama. You might actually think and fear that you are going to die—again.
