Reincarnation is a term we hear frequently, but what does it mean? In short, reincarnation is the religious or philosophical belief that your soul finds life in a new body after your current biological vessel experiences death. It’s the central doctrine of several Asian religions.
Some believe that when you die, you’re reincarnated into another person until your soul has achieved enlightenment, which is the awareness that frees you from the cycle of death and rebirth. Others believe that your soul will always be reincarnated, but how you lived your life determines what you get to be, whether it’s a cow, a grasshopper, a tree, another person, etc.
There’s a lot of speculation about looking into the past before our current life to see how we died and what that means for us today.
