Reincarnation Cards are in the 5 categories that cover all aspects of life, past, present and future. There are different numbers of cards in each category that determine variations within each category, for example, the type of work you may have done.

To find out more about the meaning of each category, click on one of the images above.


The 5 categories, Occupation, Culture, Theme, Termination, Environment,  combine to give a whole picture of a potential previous incarnation. 

Each Category is clearly defined and explained in detail.

Reincarnation research. For nearly twenty years, we have lived in storied Paphos on the Eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus, set like a jewel in the wine-dark sea of Homeric legend. From our veranda, we watch the sun set over a sea unobstructed all the way to Crete, a little over three hundred miles away to the west.

Our home is the same distance north of the pyramids of Egypt, some 450 miles southeast of fabled Troy and 250 miles northwest of Jerusalem. We are only a few miles from where the goddess Aphrodite (Venus) is said to have arrived in Cyprus, wafted to Paphos as related by Homer in the Odyssey. For at least a dozen centuries before the advent of Christianity, her Temple Sanctuary attracted pilgrims from all over the Mediterranean world.

Just across the bay from our home is the peninsula where the Achaean Greeks first landed in 1250 BCE. Now an archaeological preserve, it was more recently occupied by a Roman garrison during the governorship of the Proconsul, Cicero. The whole island of Cyprus was once gifted by Antony to Cleopatra, more than a thousand years before it was taken by the Crusader King Richard the Lionhearted. Subsequently, the Knights Templar, the medieval Venetians, the Ottoman Turks and the Imperial British ruled in turn and left their traces here. Sadly, the strife and conflict continue to the present day. The island of Cyprus, the very first Christian country, is still divided by ethnic discord, a legacy of conquering armies, both current and past.

In such an historic crossroads of civilizations and cultures, with ancient sacred sites in abundance virtually on our doorstep, there is no doubt that the psychic imprints of our environs have influenced us. It is hardly surprising that we should have developed a special interest in, among other things, the much misunderstood doctrine of reincarnation.

This work has been some years in the making. It was inspired, at least in part, by the realization that the average person has only a vague and somewhat romantic idea of the subject.

Reincarnation is widely interpreted as the wandering of an individual human soul through a series of physical embodiments, in the course of which it encounters the same soul-mate(s) and friends, over and over again, in repeated loving, and occasionally tragic relationships.

While on one level there may be some truth in this view, we believe that it is not the whole story and that the time has come to establish reincarnation theory on a philosophically sound basis. Throughout this book the appeal is to the reason that leads to genuine knowledge, rather than to mere belief. Accordingly we suggest that, at least for the time that you are pursuing these studies, you lay aside all preconceived ideas.

This work is a “far memory recovery” technique, an apparatus for personal awareness training for which patents are currently pending. More than this, however, Reincarnation Cards and the accompanying book are, in effect, a course in the higher philosophy that is not essentially different from Gnosticism in the West or from philosophic (aspar ́sa) yoga, Taoism and Zen in the East, but stripped of all such labels. We have provided a Glossary to explain the precise meaning of such philosophic concepts as used throughout this book, which may differ from the conventional dictionary definitions.

In the Republic, Plato (427–347 BCE) declared that “Pure knowledge is the knowledge of that which always is, and not of something which at some time comes into being and then passes away.” Plato thus defined the Logos, the timeless, spaceless That which is ultimately real.

Contained within the Logos are all ephemeral phenomena, transient things that “pass away,” including what we normally think of as our individual selves. We normally believe, mistakenly, that we are eternally separate and apart both from each other and from the Logos, reality itself.

Plato’s teaching is the essence of Gnosticism as it is of the Vedanta and of other higher philosophies, both Eastern and Western. This book is based on the metaphysical doctrine that only one being, the Logos, or Cosmic Mind is real; that all phenomena, including ourselves, exist as temporary projections within that Mind; that the universe is a display of mind, by mind, to mind.

This mentalist metaphysics carefully discriminates between reality and existence, declaring that mind is the only reality — the changeless That which always is. The existent comprises changeable phenomena that are manifested and animated by Mind. Hence the universe may certainly be said to exist, but it derives its apparent reality from that of the Cosmic Mind that generates it.

The perishable individual egoic mind is comparable to a wave on the ocean’s surface. Looking out at other waves, coming into momentary existence, only virtually instantaneously to disappear and be replaced by others, the individual wave may perceive itself as unique, wholly separate from and independent of all other waves, and even mourn the appearance of birth and death amongst its companions and as its own fate. Yet all such illusions are dispelled once it looks within and realizes its bound- less, immortal, essential nature, its true self, as ocean.

If faithfully followed, the successful completion of your self- directed research will provide you with an impregnable, realized knowledge, both of yourself and of the world that you appear intermittently to inhabit. This gnosis will be firmly based on a solid metaphysics, illumined by the practical mystical experience that will inevitably be induced by the very nature of your studies.

It now remains only to invite you to share what we offer to you in this work. If at first you fail to progress, we urge you to keep on trying. Allow this knowledge to soak completely into your understanding. The dawn may come at any time.
