How Long Do Spirits Wait Before Reincarnating?
Answering questions about past lives, reincarnation, and how much time we are in the spirit world before experiencing another life.
A common question I get is about the timing of reincarnation. People want to know how long after death a spirit might wait before they enter another lifetime. It’s a good question for multiple reasons.
First, we might wonder if our loved one in spirit will still be there when we die and go home to the spirit world. Second, many of us feel tired from this lifetime and secretly hope to have a hundred years of rest. Will we get the time we need to recuperate? Third, children have vague memories of the Vietnam War or the terrorism of September 11th, yet they were born after these events. Is it possible these are past-life memories or some other phenomena?
Let me begin this discussion by examining the difference between past lives and reincarnation.
