    I do believe in reincarnation and even wrote a hub about my feelings.  I don't think we have a choice as to who we are when we return.  I think we basically are the same spirit but in different form.  It's a fascinating thing to think about, isn't it Angie?

    I have remembered many past lives, and healed their hurt and learned from their wisdom. Each life makes my own life richer and fuller. But the same can be said of the lives of my friends, and lives I learn about by reading a biography. What makes an incarnation of my own different is only that I feel like "I did this," or "this happened to me," even though it wasn't during the lifetime of my current body. So I act as if reincarnation is true, but I do not "believe" in it. I believe only that all life is connected.

    As for where I want to go next, I just want to finish unfinished business and be free for the next adventure!

    I do believe in reincarnation, and I know for a fact that I've been a musician in many past lives. I hope to come back as a musician in the next, but I hope to have a more business oriented personality, because in this lifetime I'm a starving musician... NOT COOL AT ALL!

    I would like to think so, especially since everything else seems to be ongoing and perpetually recycled throughout the cosmos.  I'd most likely come back as a misfit humanoid on some other earth-like planet in another solar system, all while trying to understand the universe, yet again, while seeking out for attractive beings and intelligent life on whatever planet I was currently dwelling on. Ha!

    Great question. For my studies I am told that we reincarnate and obtain our new body based on the past karma or activities of all our previous lives.  The mode of material nature enforces this process, so everyone gets what they deserve.  I personally never want to reincarnate again.  I want to make it to the eternal spiritual sky and live with God as Krsna.

    If I had to reincarnate and I had a choice I would come back as a human, hopefully intelligent, strong, handsome, rich and of course kind hearted.

    Best wishes

    No, I believe people live once and then they go to hell or heaven forever after that.

    The idea of reincarnation has always intrigued me. I've read some accounts of children remembering past lives (especially in India) for which reincarnation would seem to be a plausible explanation. My father died at a relatively young age before my son was born and we often joke that he is the reincarnation of my father.  When I look at my son I sometimes get goosebumps at the things he says, the way he moves, his perceptive outlook on life and sophisticated sense of humour...
    I wonder it reincarnation or is there something in our dna that remembers...
    If I had a say in the matter  I'd like to come back as a bird - flying high in some remote mountainous  area unspoilt by humans.

    I'd come back as me and try to avoid the mistakes and problems I may have caused to others in this incarnation. I'd rather do it all again with the people I have travelled with so far than put things right in a future incarnation. A sort of 'Groundhog Day' scenario.

    'Hindsight is a wonderful thing' as the saying goes. Not sure whether I believe in reincarnation, but it does make perfect sense and I always keep an open mind- you learn a lot that way....... maybe see you next time round eh?
