When most people look for evidence of their past lives, they usually overlook evidence that is "hiding in plain sight".
Seeing the World With New Eyes
Looking at the present day world through past life eyeglasses can give one a whole new perspective on and an explanation for certain phenomena that has been and is present in "real life". Here is some evidence of past life carryovers that explain several observable present day situations and phenomena.
The "deja vu" experience is the feeling that we have been somewhere or done something before when we could not possibly "have been there or done that".
Many believe that children's past life memories are among the most compelling because, given the level and complexity of detail "remembered".
Extreme forms of past life manifestations in children are the phenomena of "child prodigies" (children who are born with extremely advanced expertize) and "idiot savants" (children who can perform complex mathematical or scientific calculations but are lacking in very basic social skills).
Child prodigies have developed certain skill sets in such a high degree in past lives that they become deeply ingrained in their persona. So when that Soul reincarnates, the skills come along in the new body fully intact and a child prodigy is born. For example, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart believed that he had been a musician in many past lives where he had developed his amazing technical skills.
Similarly, idiot savants reincarnate with fully developed skill sets but there is usually such a serious imbalance between their mental and emotional bodies as to put the mental body completely in control of the individual. The mind "out of control" drives the emotions and the physical body of the savant to act in ways that are considered to be socially unacceptable. The karmic goal of this existence is to "knock" the emotions back into shape and restore balance.
Xenoglossy is someone's "ability to speak or write in a language that has not been learned". Cases of xenoglossy are the hardest to explain - other than in the context of past lives - where the individual involved "spontaneously" can write in languages long extinct and known only to a handful of research scholars.
MULTIPLE BIRTH DEFECTS & DISTINCTIVE BIRTHMARKS
Multiple or severe birth defects are usually the result of an individual being on the spiritual "debt consolidation karmic payment plan". Since birth conditions can never be ignored and usually last for the entire lifetime, they become the perfect vehicles for the working off of serious and complex karmic conditions arising from past lives. It is as if all the individual's problems have been rolled into one big, gigantic ball that the individual will be dragging around for "the rest of their life".
"Birthmarks or other physiological manifestations have been found to relate to experiences of past lives, particularly violent death.
Every attitude and belief you have comes from somewhere. Obsessions and compulsions in this lifetime are usually directly traceable back to a past life where they originated. If the traits or the behaviors are disempowering enough in one's life today, then it becomes a Obssesive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
Multiple personality disorders (MPD) and/or Schizophrenia (SCH) can be caused by the emergence of past life personalities that arise to help the present day person solve problem(s). The trouble comes when these past life personalities are not properly reintegrated back into the present day person's memory.
Ever met someone whose life was a "bad news buffet"? Ever met someone whose life - if put on a television soap opera - would be just too tragic to be believed? Ever met someone who never seems to get ahead and is the classic case of "when bad things happen to good people"? Most people have.
It raises the classic problem of "evil": for how does a truly loving God let "bad things" happen to some of His children and not others? The answer is: "as one has sown, so also shall one reap" and those who "sow the wind" will "harvest the whirlwind". In the context of present lives being the working out of past life causes, there is no hard luck... there are only experiences one has chosen. Often those experiences are to suffer for ourselves what we have caused others to suffer.
INFANT ADDICTS & DOWN'S SYNDROME CASES
The encounter with the "problem of evil" is greater nowhere than in cases of infants born addicted to drugs or severely compromised mentally and physically as in Down's Syndrome cases. If a person only "got only one shot at life" and it was with extreme birth defects like these, then how could belief in a loving, just, and merciful God be possible? I think it could not be.
When it becomes clear that these situations were chosen by returning suicides, Nazi medical experimenters, serial killers, and the like to understand the effects of their brutality, then the role of cosmic justice becomes clear.
