That would be an explanation for it though, i don't feel like a soul that comes back straight away each time (i mean, life outside a body would be fun
plus i have a "job" to do in between incarnations...hee-hee you'd know that Rei, we're from the same order).
What are your thoughts about the frequency of reincarnation?
... I forgot the number of incarnations from my SR reading. It was more than three, though, so I guess that info was accessible regarding the cosmos and not just earth. I get a weird feeling response (sort of not a full resonance) about my SR reading nowadays... not sure why... might be good to figure it out, though.
@Melchior: I thought of a very loose idea that may help, though it isn't perfect. The soul structure according to my idea of the shamanic framework is similar to a sunflower. The center of the sunflower is the part of the soul (aka core self) which always has integrity, is perfect, whole and pure. (Blerg, apparently the center of a sunflower is technically many tiny flowers but I'm speaking about the shape and structure to the physical eye
And then you have the petals of the sunflower, which would be like the soul parts I discussed above. A disturbing experience would be like a person pulling one of the petals. However, the example breaks down, because it is hard to think of how we could return a sunflower petal to its original place around the center of the flower - but soul retrieval would be similar to bringing that petal back to its original place.
The entire sunflower is the core self, the soul, yet there is a part of it that maintains that integrity and a part that is not guaranteed to maintain that integrity.
Like I said, not a perfect example but perhaps it will help?
