Soul Contact Sessions With Tonya
Past Lives and Reincarnation
By Tonya Madia, Certified Hypnotist, Medium
“I started out really young, when I was four, five, six, writing poems, before I could play an instrument. I was writing about things when I was eight or 10 years old that I hadn’t lived long enough to experience. That’s why I also believe in reincarnation, that we were put here with ideas to pass around.” ~ Willie Nelson
When my son was a toddler he would wake from his naps befuddled. Looking around the room, eyes wide with confusion he would sometimes ask, “Where is my family?” To which my husband and I would respond, “We’re right here buddy…”
“No,” he would respond, “I mean my other family!” He would then describe his family, his home, and his occupation in great detail. He would tell us about his job as a fireman and talk about the intense heat of the fires and the extreme weight of the hoses. Details a two-year-old would not have known.
One afternoon, while having lunch with my son, he began staring at me intently. This continued for several moments until he blurted out, “It’s you!”
“Yes,” I replied, confused, “it’s me… your mom.”
“No!” he replied. “Don’t you remember? When I was a grown up and we were friends? I would come to your house to pick you up for dances and I would brush your hair?”
I had to admit to him that I did not recall those encounters; however, I trusted his recollection of them 100%.
Reincarnation, the belief that our souls return to begin a new life in another body, is also called transmigration. It is a central tenet of many religions, such as Jainism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. Belief in reincarnation is found in many ancient cultures and the belief was also held by Greek historic figures, such as Pythagoras, Socrates, and Plato.
Certain passages of the Bible, such as Matthew 16:13–15 and John 1:21–22, reference reincarnation and question whether Jesus is the reincarnation of Elijah, John the Baptist, Jeremiah, or another prophet.
Numerous cases of young children who report memories of previous lives have been studied over the last 50 years, cases in which thousands of children from different backgrounds and religions have described a life that they have lived before with stunning detail.
Memories of past lives seem to be more easily accessed by young children. Perhaps they have not been long separated from their previous incarnation and have not yet fully come to identify with their new body/identity. Although, if this was the only explanation, it seems to me that every young child would recall past life experiences. There does seem to be a common theme of trauma due to a sudden or violent death, among the children who recall past life memories, which suggests that a violent or traumatic death contributes to the ability to recall a previous life.
There are countless cases from all over the world in which young children recall with incredible accuracy details from a previous life. What is so remarkable about these cases is that in addition to often verifiable facts, there are often physical traits connected to their past live experiences. Birthmarks are often found in the exact location of fatal wounds. Ailments such as asthma are present in individuals who died from drowning or asphyxiation. Evidence also suggests that habits and phobias carry over from past lives, as do talents and skills.
If accepted as fact, a belief in reincarnation would serve to influence and change our personal behavior. If we were all to understand that the way in which we treat others in this life time will have consequences for the way future lifetimes unfold, I believe a shift in consciousness could occur that would change the world for the better.
If you have ever wondered what lives you’ve lived, met someone and felt as if you’ve known them forever or ever been curious about the nature of karma, lives between lives, or past lives, you might be interested in scheduling a Soul Contact Session with me. Sessions are a gentle form of hypnosis allowing access to higher states of consciousness, which allows for contact with guides and recall of memories of lives between lives and past life experiences. Sessions are done remotely via video and last anywhere from 75-90 minutes.
