Since I have been involved with past life regression, I have a greater understanding and appreciation of the consequences that arise from our actions. Whatever we do in this lifetime is going to affect future generations and eventually ourselves when we decide to reincarnate. Everything we do comes back to us eventually. In relation to the Earth it is therefore imperative that we look after it so that we have something to come back to. But what I see all around me is global climate change, the decimation of our rainforests, consumerism and “progress” slowly destroying what we have.
There is a saying “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children”. I was recently reminded of this quote and how powerful it is. The future generations will suffer unless we all do our bit to preserve this beautiful planet on which we live. Did you know that raising animals for us to eat uses more than 70% of the earth’s fresh water? It takes up to 200 times more water and 8 times more fossil fuel energy to produce beef than it does to grow plant foods. Most of the grain grown in the US is used to feed to livestock to benefit the meat and dairy industries, while millions of people around the world suffer from hunger and malnutrition.
A couple of years ago I opened my eyes to these statistics and decided to become vegan. This is not an easy decision and does require lifestyle changes and education on how to eat in this way. Once I broke through the mental conditioning I had grown up with that you can’t survive without the iron and other nutrients that meat and dairy foods provide, it was much easier. I learned that these nutrients are readily available in a plant-based diet and there are many unhealthy people walking around living on junk food, whose nutritional intake is never questioned.
The upside of my decision is I am sparing animals from slaughter, and trust me there is no humane way to do this. I am also benefiting my own health as I now have much less chance of contracting a life-threatening illness and have never felt better. In fact, I have been able to completely do away with the medications I was taking for digestive problems I had been suffering for more than 10 years.
I am just asking you to consider at least cutting down on meat and dairy consumption. Don’t think that any small change that you make will not make a difference because it does. If you were to cut out meat for one month you would save nearly 125,000 litres of the world’s water supply, 84 square metres of forest and the lives of 30 animals.**
These days it is much easier to be vegetarian and vegan as restaurants and supermarkets are recognising the demand for these options. People are waking up and taking care of their health more than ever before and that is exciting for me. I was encouraged to make this change two years ago and reluctant to do it at first. It all seemed too hard because like everyone else, I liked to remain in my comfort zone with what was familiar. But I urge you to try it, even if just for 30 days, and see what a difference it will make to the way you feel. Initially there may be some discomfort as you detox but it doesn’t take long to feel better than you could have imagined and proud of what you’re doing to preserve our beautiful Mother Earth.
Past life regression is all about growth and understanding our life purpose, then doing what we can to fulfil this purpose during the present incarnation. But our soul doesn’t stop here. In order to complete our soul’s journey we need to continue coming back, so let’s all make sure we have something sustainable to come back to.
