confused Hey everyone!

I'm relatively new here and this is going to be a somewhat odd first post...

I'm a big believer in reincarnation {prbly not so unusual here} and ever since I can remember have felt completely out-of-place within my family of origin. The feeling that I'm talking about is similar to that experienced by adoptees and foster children...except that I'm not an adoptee or a former foster child...

Basically what I'm talking about is this {and this is where this post might seem a little strange}. I happen to also believe that it is possible sometimes to be born into the wrong family unit. And I'm thinking that that may have happened. A big part of why has to do with my lack of connections to most of my family members {including my mother}...

Another odd thing is that there are three family members that I have extremely strong feelings toward. One is my older sister {whom I don't like and am almost adverse to}. Another is my older half-brother Chris {whom I'm very close to and feel a very deep connection with} and the third is my cousin Elic {whom I am also close to}. The thing about this is that I can't explain that either. I'm actually wondering if the connections to Elic and Chris might have been formed during a prior lifetime/incarnation...

Get back to me on this please!
Thanks!

Hello Starshine,

The question of reincarnation has always been a disputed issue amongst Spiritualists, some believing that we all pass through a series of earth lives, others believing that it occurs but only in specific cases whilst others either offer alternative explanations of the apparent evidence or altogether deny that such a thing occurs at all. This is further complicated with different spirit guides expressing different opinions on the matter.

With regard to your belief that it is possible to be born into the ‘wrong’ family I think the Spiritualist response would be more uniform, in that Spiritualists believe that we are incarnated in a particular place at a particular time in order to experience those situations and challenges which will give us the best opportunity to grow and mature as spiritual beings. In addition to this many believe that in some way we actually agree to these conditions prior to incarnation.

Thus your feelings towards various members of your family might be explained in a variety of ways. To those who believe in reincarnation you might be experiencing  those emotions that have carried over from a previous life. To others you are merely having to confront those experiences which you have chosen to encounter as a pathway to future growth while the more simpler explanation could be a question of family dynamics and psychology which would not necessarily need to invoke any supernormal motivation in the first place.

This probably doesn’t answer your questions in the way that you would wish but I believe that it is for each individual to question, assess and decide for themselves what they think about these things and if you cannot come to any definite conclusions then it is perfectly acceptable to maintain an undecided but open mind.

The simple answer to your last question is, yes, maybe.....  Not a very satisfying one I acknowledge but it's hard to nail the details without a great deal of writing.

There are a number of points in your opening posting that I've addressed elsewhere at length but my experience has been that my responses may not have helped much.  

As with so many issues (in my experience) context is all and considering difficult and detailed ones outside of a framework of basic understanding often leads seekers nowhere satisfying.  I know that from my personal search for information.

Nowadays I encourage seekers to focus on one aspect at a time and to find out all they can before moving on to another.
