Traditionally, reincarnation is believed to be the rebirth of a soul into another life form. Reincarnation is also tied in with the concepts of karma and soul age. In other words, the longer you live on this earth, the more karma you collect and have the opportunity to resolve. This leads to the development of soulful maturity, which is the capacity to connect with the soul and experience enlightenment, or wholeness. It is believed that some of our traumas stem from unresolved past life issues. For this reason, past life therapy is often used to heal our inner wounds that result in depression, anxiety, and chronic illnesses. You can read more about reincarnation in this section.
