The animal question
I’m often asked, ‘can we reincarnate into animals?’ Most past life experts say no, because you don't learn the lessons you failed as a human in this life by being reborn as a dog in the next. The theory is that we start off as what we call ‘lower life forms’ and gradually work our way up to being humans - but this implies that humans are the top of the spiritual chain. I believe that we go through lives as animals before we become human - because life as an animal is meant to prepare us for the huge challenge we face as humans in retaining our spirituality and respecting all life. Which is why, if we fail, it makes sense to come back as an animal and relearn that invaluable lesson.
