ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS
Does Scientology believe in reincarnation or past lives?
Reincarnation is a definite system and is not part of Scientology. It is a fact that unless one begins to handle aberrations built up in past lives, he doesnt progress.
The common definition of reincarnation has been altered from its original meaning. The word has come to mean to be born again in different life forms whereas its actual definition is to be born again into the flesh or into another body. Scientology ascribes to this latter, original definition of reincarnation.
Today in Scientology, many people have certainty that they have lived lives prior to their current one. These are referred to as past lives, not as reincarnation.
Past lives is not a dogma in Scientology, but generally Scientologists, during their auditing, experience a past life and then know for themselves that they have lived before.
To believe one had a physical or other existence prior to the identity of the current body is not a new concept but it is an exciting one.
In Scientology, you are given the tools to handle upsets and aberrations from past lives that adversely affect you in present time, thus freeing you to live a much happier life.
