Reincarnation, Recognizing An Old Soul

 The Meadowblog welcomes your comments to any of the articles posted here.


The only claim we make is that we do everything in our power to plant that seed of curiosity.

Author: By Gary S Jones


  Have we lived before? Will we live again? Despite endless debates based around the validity of reincarnation as it is expounded in various religions, there is one crucial point that must be remembered. Reincarnation is not a religious concept. It is not the property of any one group to either own or disown. Reincarnation is par excellence a natural Law. When we grasp this, many doors open for deeper understanding. "The Meadow" addresses this concept subtly as it describes the challenges of the main characters from life to life. Logically, if you study the nature of the world in which we live, learn and grow, almost everything has a cycle - why would man be different from the environment in which he was meant to evolve? -- Elfreda Pretorius and Mike O'Hare. 

 Reincarnation, Recognizing An Old Soul

By Gary S Jones


The power to recognize an old soul by this,  I mean a soul that has traveled to earth many times.  In addition,  experienced many lives. I am lucky in this respect as my wife is such a person, she was born a medium/clairvoyant and has personally experienced many things in her life that we mere mortals would Consider strange and miraculous and when she asks the spirit world for help,  they listen and Can cause miracles to happen.  One such miracle happened when my wife was the birthing partner for our daughter, the birth did not go according to plan and our grandson was born dead , he had died in the womb and had no heartbeat for thirty minutes as he was born the staff took him to the resuscitation unit and started to work on him my wife was not worried for one minute even when the doctor said babies do not come back after this length of time,  and if they did they would be severely disabled due to oxygen deprivation.


They tried to resuscitate him for twenty minutes then suddenly he started to breath and was rushed to the babies special care unit , he had severe brain damage but was alive. My wife said that he would be fine as he had been brought back at her request,  and she knew that in time,  he would be fine.  The hospital was amazed at his progress and called him a little miracle and at four months old he had A brain scan that showed that his brain was completely normal,  and he is now developing into a beautiful little boy with the biggest brightest smile you could ever imagine.  This is just a small example of how strange things happen around her, she has a calm personality and Concentrates her energies on aiding people achieve the best they can in their own lives.  You too may have someone special in your lives, someone you recognize as being different and In touch with the world in a special way. Old souls are highly advanced and very scarce, they are fun To work with and are usually placed here as incarnated guides.


Advanced souls usually go about their tasks in a quiet and unassuming manner and willingly helping other People achieve fulfillment in their own lives. These souls have exceptional insight and calm in the Face of adversity, they create a calmness around themselves and can raise another persons consciousness just by talking to them. They often disregard their own physical needs, they are recognized By their serene nature and penetrating eyes that can look right into your soul. When these Individuals are regressed under hypnotherapy you find they have been reincarnated for more than One and a half million years and lived for many lives.


Normally,  our souls reincarnate to experience life, when we are on the other side everything is very simple Furthermore,  we have the ability to experience another persons life, feelings and emotions, it is like playing A film with the ability to jump into the bodies of the actors and experience their feelings at that particular moment. This gives us a better insight into human feelings and we then decide to experience these for Ourselves so we agree to come back to earth as a human baby and experience new feelings and emotions.


Life on the other side is full of brightness and love,  and we have clarity, the answers to our questions,  fear Does not exist nor hunger want or need.  Our emotions are based on love and happiness, the people with old souls remember these feelings Furthermore,  know that there is nothing to fear on earth as they have been here many times and suffered Many things and died many deaths, when a soul remembers this what else is there to fear. An old Soul will look at death as a natural progression that instantly brings your soul back to its home and not as a deep.  Loss an the end of everything. This outlook on life is misunderstood by us normal folk as we do not Has the ability to remember a time without fear need and want .  Old souls are content with helping others rather than trying to make a place for themselves in this Life, they give out love and are happy if this is returned to them. Children can easily identify with an old Soul and immediately feel at ease in their presence, the same applies to animals usually cats and dogs Furthermore,  like babies they are innocent souls and still connected to the after life in a strong way I hope that you have an old soul in your life and will recognize such a person if you are lucky enough To cross their path, cherish them for the unique people they are.


I and my family run two websites mainly dealing with life after death, psychic phenomenon and real life stories. My wife is a medium/clairvoyant and has had the most remarkable things happen in her life and our stories are mainly from her experience, their are lots of free educational insights on our site and more stories on

"The Meadow" is an epic love story unlike anything told before. The storyline threads an earthly path through four life times, from ancient Mexica to contemporary Pakistan, and affords the reader glimpses of a place known as "The Meadow" - an inter-life waterhole where souls rest between lives.


This is a story about life and all its complexities. It is about the eternal love of two characters that seem destined to be together but who repeatedly fail to bond due to a nemesis that tracks them from life to life, tearing them apart.


The stage of "The Meadow" includes hate and retribution, international espionage and political deceit, interspersed with the brilliance of an autistic savant, offspring of the female protagonist, who tries to solve the secret and mystery of the eagle in order to save his mother.


The frustrated lovers thus have only one option - to unite in the Meadow - a place they forget all about each time they incarnate into a new life.


This site is dedicated to "The Meadow", a book of more than 600 pages and has yet to be published, but it is also devoted to sharing information about life beyond the trapdoor of death, inviting the reader to question everything, from dogmatic beliefs to the establishment.


There are many related articles here and we hope that there will be something for everyone. We hope to encourage communication and discussion between likeminded individuals willing to share their experiences to further our common goals of advancement into the future whilst learning from each other.
