Past Life – Can I Be My Own Ancestor?

Past Life – Can I Be My Own Ancestor?

People often ask, ‘Can I be my own ancestor?’  While that question might seem silly or even ridiculous; let me assure you; it is a common phenomenon. When one explores their previous incarnations, one is following the linage of one’s soul while it moves in and out of body and earth experiences. This is, of course, different from tracing a person’s family tree. However, in many instances there may be interesting and fascinating combinations when an individual’s sequence of past lives appears on a particular family tree more than once or several times, depending how far back one can trace his/her family tree.

Appearing on a particular family tree more than once is when a family member dies, and then incarnates as their own descendant.  We recognize this when a mother or family member may notice that a child has strong traits of a deceased relative. But these are guesses that could also be attributed to genetics or family behavioral traits.

Through past life regression and other hypnotic techniques, we are able to discover and verify when this has occurred. Recently, a client wanted to know if her grandson was her father, who died three years before her grandson was born. Following a protocol to access such information; we were able to determine that indeed her father had incarnated as her grandson. There were several similarities between the two personalities and other identifying factors, which could not be explained away.

There is no definitive way to determine how frequently a person may incarnate as his/her own descendant. However, I have worked with many clients who remember being part of their own family tree. For example: their own great-grandmother or grandfather. Clients have reported a deceased grandparent or another ancestor reincarnating as one of their children in their present lifetime. Reincarnating into the same family tree is unnecessary for many reasons, because of the history and evolution of the soul, including the past life lineage, generally has little or nothing to do with one’s genetic heritage or family ancestry.

The reasons a soul may choose to reincarnate into the same family tree, may include a strong soul connection to the family members, a strong emotional attachment to the family, and the ability to further their purpose through incarnating in that group of souls.

A related incarnation phenomenon is family members frequently reincarnate together, but into a different family tree. So, you may encounter your loved ones over and over again. However, each time you may incarnate into a different genetic family. You might have been together with your spouse, in the reverse role. Or you might incarnate as brother and sister, sisters or parent/child – child/parent. The juxtapositions in relationship to one another are limitless from one incarnation to the next. Cousins from a previous incarnation could be brother/brother or brother/sister in the next incarnation or spouses.

In summary, it is possible to incarnate into the same family or soul group for many incarnations.. Yet, it is not required when other choices are deemed important for the soul’s emotional and spiritual progress and purpose. While you are likely to encounter your loved ones frequently throughout your many incarnations, you will likely find yourself in new family trees as often.  ###
