Some of you may be wondering, or even outright complaining, about the lack of substantial cosplay scumbaggery posts that used to populate this blog. There is an obvious reason for that – cosplay has degenerated so gravely that it’s not worth anyone’s time anymore.
Coming up with lengthy posts about notorious perverts and nefarious scammers take more effort than one may think. Information must be gathered, verified, then processed into a diatribe that results in a few laughs.
Gone are the days when there was hope for the Philippine cosplay community to fix itself – Filipino cosplay is nothing more than a huge joke now, thanks to all the squatters, perverts, and “Myrtle-lings”. So, why bother at all?
Another reason why I haven’t been paying too much attention to this blog, though, is that I’ve been engrossed in something else. That would be what is commonly classified as the “paranormal”. In particular, I have been interested in metaphysics – or rather, life beyond the material world. In the past months, I have amassed new age books, met with several clairvoyants and psychics, and continuously searched for truth.
Unfortunately, absolute truth is extremely difficult to grasp in this realm of crazies. Skeptics have good reason to label “new age bullshit” as a whole as crookery. It’s not easy to believe in ghosts, spoon benders, pyromancers and such when the literature surrounding the paranormal is over-saturated by lying opportunists.
However, there is one thing I’ve come to meet with certainty as of late – the fact that inside our material bodies are indeed enduring, reincarnating souls, and somehow, the universe remembers everything in history and has the ability to show man glimpses of the future.
I won’t tackle reincarnation in depth, because there are so much better references online at anyone’s disposal if you wish to learn about the process of going through many lifetimes in order to perfect the soul. What I will present here, and what I want to be in writing because I tend to forget things, is how I’ve become convinced that we have lived on this planet before and will continue to live a finite number of lives until we achieve “godhood”.
I’m as big a skeptic as any, if not more than the average rational guy. I’m the kind who immediately dismisses stories about ghosts, kapres, and other somewhat mythical creatures. Whenever I am faced with a new paranormal story, like that of psychics who perform miracles, I go into debunking mode. More often than not, claims of man materializing objects from nowhere or bending keys involve trickery in the first place. I do, however, believe that many metaphysical theories hold some truth.
A quick search of “reincarnation” on Youtube will net you a plethora of fascinating videos and documentaries offering “evidence” of man having multiple lifetimes. Basically, the idea is that our purpose in this world (referred to as the third dimension by occultists) is to live many lives and learn lessons from each earthly visit. We keep on reincarnating until we learn everything we need and become worthy of going back to the “Source”. In most religions, this is God.
There is perhaps no scientific way of proving reincarnation. Until we have exhausted all the secrets of the universe and scientists run out of explanations, only then can we confirm that when someone remembers places he’s never been to or speaks perfectly at a young age a language not native to him, the phenomenon is not due to DNA or the collective unconscious.
My first encounter with past lives was far from scientific. A couple of years ago, I found a video series on self-regression through hypnosis and decided to try it out with my friends. Being a huge skeptic then as much as I am now, I didn’t expect much from it. In fact, I tried self-regression on my own and I only fell asleep. My peers experienced more fruitful sessions, however.
Around 8 out of 10 people that went through self-regression saw vivid images of what could be their past lives. A common argument against this procedure is that what you see during hypnosis may be products of your imagination.
Here are some instances that I don’t think cannot be chalked up to someone’s playful mind:
- Seeing detailed clothing from an era you are unfamiliar with (I think it was 1600) then finding out that the garments you saw were actually used in the year your mind conjured – One of my buddies saw himself as a conquistador of unknown nationality. He was given a year and a name. We found nothing about his name, but he was able to describe in detail clothing in the era he saw that we later confirmed to be correct. He claims he’s never seen such clothes before, and he’s not exactly the studious type, so there is doubt whether he just learned about the conquistadors in history class.
- Feeling deep love and painful loss as you part with someone during regression – Another who went into regression saw himself with a woman that he had strong love for. He felt distraught when it was time to part ways, and he seemed reasonably shaken after the session. One follower of the esoteric suggested that it could not have been imagination. The same way imagination alone can’t provide us with sexual pleasure, imagination cannot evoke strong emotions.
- Getting stabbed to death where your birthmark lies – The connection between birthmarks and past lives is no big secret, but the guy who saw himself get stabbed to death in the belly where he has a birthmark that looks like it was stabbed by a wide knife had no idea about reincarnation. He was a rich ilustrado stabbed by a Spanish soldier. He is facing financial problems in his current lifetime, which could be indicative of karmic debt.
I never saw anything in these sessions except one time when a mysterious hand was trying to open a non-existent window in front of me, but I’ve also never seen or felt ghosts or spirits before, so my lack of sensitivity is suspect.
Prior to my interest in reincarnation, I’ve already been into tarot reading which is psychic in nature. There are two kinds of tarot readers – those who memorize the meaning of each card then use intuition to interpret the cards, and those who simply use the cards as reference to what information the “Higher Source” is trying to send.
From this point on, it is important to understand the common belief among psychic readers – they say we only receive information that we need to know at present time. If you seek several readings in a short amount of time, you will find that the psychics and the cards are saying the same things, which is attributed to the belief that we can only access knowledge from the Akashic Records that will help us with our current problems or those in the near future. I can personally confirm the repetition of messages in readings because it happens to me and people I know who are into the same stuff.
Sadly, like in any profession, there are good and bad tarot readers. I take them all with a grain of salt. I know about psychic tricks such as cold and hot reading, but I found that some readers have legitimate ability – whether it’s sharp intuition, or access to the “Akashic Records”. I now know a handful of reliable readers who never fail to impress me with their accuracy in foretelling the future.
Calling out tarot/card readers was already a developed skill the first time I met a psychic who claims to be able to read past lives. She had tarot cards with her, but to my surprise, she never used the cards past the first one she drew which she almost forgot about because I asked so many questions.
The way she did her reading was unique – for every question, she closes her eyes and claims to be seeing visions made privy to her by a “Higher Source” pertaining to the answer. Sometimes, she is unsure about what she sees, so she commands me to ask an incriminating question. For example, she saw a monk and made me ask if the monk was a past-life of mine.
During our 2-hour session, I inquired mostly about past lives. Here are bullet points that I consider to be strong determinants of the existence of reincarnation:
- She saw the same past life my mother did when the latter did self-regression – I find this very significant, because the chances of getting a specific past life correctly is very low if you made them up.
- She described the circumstances I had with an ex-girlfriend without any information to work with, and related a past life that explained why things happened the way they did – All she asked for was the name and age of my ex, and she was able to tell how tumultuous the relationship was and how it ended in a very confusing note. I know by experience that not all relationships are like this. Somehow, she got that particular one right.
- She described the circumstances of someone from far away and my relationship with her via a relevant past life – I have a, let’s say special friend on an extended vacation, with special circumstances that are almost impossible to guess, especially when all you know about the person is her name and age. The reader described every detail of what was going on, and the most likely outcome in the near future.
After that reading, I consulted with other past life readers to cross check, and I can say that the cosmos really has its way with giving people the information they need to progress in life. Chances are, you are probably reading this right now because it is the right time for you to be exposed to the metaphysical. Depending on your life path – on what you chose to do in this lifetime before you reincarnated – this post may end up as a springboard for your soul evolution, or just another crazy write-up to laugh at.
Since that meeting with the psychic who can read past lives, I continued my search and found more interesting things that solidify in my mind the understanding that we live our lives with purpose, we follow the law karma, and a lot of people close to us now have been with us in previous lifetimes. I can tell you guys all about it next time.
