The After Session Workshop on April 28th will be a Group Past Life Regression focusing on how using or misuse of the Universal Laws has influenced your life from one lifetime to another….. 

There is so much to be gained from understanding how a past life has influenced your life today.  From this vantage point, how to proceed in this lifetime becomes clearer….

I believe if we understood from our early years that we are a composite of all our lifetimes and we deal with what we have learned or not learned from other lifetimes in this incarnation, we could clearly SEE what needs to be corrected or amended now and move on.

Here is why most of us did not have that understanding at an early age….

It was in the year 533 A.D… 165 Church officials condemned reincarnation.  Prior to that time, it had been a fundamental Christian teaching as in most major religious theology of that time.  What led up to this condemnation is a trail of conspiracy that changed the world.

Most of our world believes reincarnation is a fact.  That it is no longer a part of today’s Christian beliefs is due to one power-hungry woman who had all references to reincarnation in the early Bible removed.  Seems like a small act at the time …. But with great historical consequences…. How different would it be if humankind KNEW they would reap the fruit of the [mis]deeds in a future earthly life…. that the energy put out is what comes back to us!… that eventually, humankind would have to sleep in the beds they had made. 

That there really is — accountability!!!   That we truly are responsible for our actions.

At the beginning of the Christian era reincarnation was one of the “pillars of belief”.  Without it, as it truly happened, Christianity would lose all logic.  How could a benevolent, loving God give one person a silver spoon and leave the next to starve in their one and only earthly life?  Early church elders and theologians taught reincarnation of the soul as a matter of course—it was written in the Bible, after all.  Now, most organized Christian believers suspect blasphemy if someone even references reincarnation. 

Reincarnation was never once a topic of discussion…..it was held to be a fundamental dogma which was reinforced by the Council of 451. 

Christian theology would essentially change with the ascension of Justinian to the throne of the of the Eastern Roman Empire in 527.   What profound repercussions the following centuries would suffer as a result of that change.

The “actor in the shadows” was Theodora, emperor Justinian’s wife.  The had made a sharp social ascent….and this daughter of a bear tamer from the Constantinople circus had used a woman’s oldest know power to make her climb.  Earlier in her life she had been a beautiful prostitute whose services were happily sought by the aristocracy.  Hacebolus, the young governor of Pentapolis, fell for her charms and took Theodora with him to North Africa.  But she abused the governor’s trust and amassed great riches.  When she overstepped the mark and Hacebolus was overwhelmed with complaints for the people, he threw Theodora out of his palace and confiscated all her goods.  With only the clothes on her back, she fought her way through to Alexandria.

At the gates to the city, she was taken in by a hermit named Eutyches.  It was the same Eutyches who had originated monophysitism and was now living out his exile there.  

Back in Constantinople, she purposefully slept her way up the ladder of society, become ng one of Justinian’s concubines, then his favorite concubine, and finally, in 523, his wife.  Four years later, she and her husband assumed the highest position of power in the secular world: the imperial crown.

Her burning ambition pushed her even further.  There was one final step to be climbed: her own deification.  Only then would she be equal with the Caesars of old.  Eventually the Roman Emperors were automatically deified and received a place of worship in the temple halls.  Christianity brought an end to this custom.  And it was on this point that the biblically recognized fact of reincarnation provided a stumbling block:  For how could a woman enter eternity as a goddess when everyone was supposed to be reborn?  What would prevent the errant empress from being reborn as a completely normal person—even a simple beggar.  Theodora knew that as long as reincarnation was anchored fast in Christian consciousness, the people would never accept her as a goddess.  And so the doctrine of reincarnation had to be completely blotted out.

Theodora selected the monophysitist monks, who were soon to be pardoned from their excommunications, as willing helpers.  They were to ensure that every teaching of reincarnation completely disappeared from all church documents.

Theodora had spread her own network of agents over the entire empire and took care that “her” monks, little by little, took over leadership of the church.  And the entire power of the Byzantine Empire was at her service, for Justinian had already become her willing tool.

Just think…if it is possible to take away mankind’s belief in the atonement of their misdeeds and the resulting reincarnation, then not only can you subvert their sense of responsibility, but you can make them helpless and insignificant.  The people will forget their true self…gods and goddesses themselves…. They will give themselves over to the mercy of an external god {ruler} and forgetting their own divinity.  They wait for a salvation that will never come, because in reality, each person can only save their self.  Such an humanity will easily surrender the world to evil…..

The lower energies had found two willing helpers with tremendous influence in Theodora and Justinian.  It was reported that they were possessed.  The contemporary historian Procopius offers many examples in his Apocrypha.  He tells of a monk who travelled to Constantinople to present the case of a farmer who had suffered an injustice.  He was immediately admitted, but just as he entered the throne room, he cringed and withdrew, refusing to appear before the emperor, and rushed fearfully back to his room.  Once there, he told the chamberlain that he had seen the “lord of Demons” sitting on the throne and his presence was so terrible that he was not able to bear it. 

In the same writing, Procopius quotes Justinian’s mother who once confessed to her confidantes that Justinian was not her husband’s son, mor that of any other man, but that he was sired by a demon.

Theodora and Justinian’s actions were diabolical.  In order to accomplish their plan, Theodora first had to bring Western Church of the fallen Western Roman empire under her control.  Armies helped her in this by securing Byzantine influence in Rome and enabling Theodora’s perfidy of deposing the Pope.  One of the empresses’ favorites assumed the position.

I believe you already know the ending of this saga.  Reincarnation is now gone as doctrine in the Christian religion.  

I wonder how some of the changes we make today in our laws and regulations will effect so deeply the lives of people of tomorrow?
