1. Is there a special meaning to birthmarks?
A birthmark may develop during gestation or in the first few months of a baby’s life. But is there a special meaning to birthmarks? Where do they come from? What stories have been told about their occurrence over time and across cultures and how true they are…? Do they tell you the story of your previous birth? Can you determine somebody’s character or your own future by looking at a mole? Read on to find out…
2. Birth Marks: Road map to past lives?
The correlation between birthmarks and re-incarnation was first studied extensively in 1960 by Dr. Ian Stevenson (a former director in the field of Psychiatry and current researcher in personalities). Dr. Stevenson’s research lays in his discovery that many children who remembered their past lives bore birthmarks located on their bodies which correlated with the deaths they claimed to have experienced prior to being re-incarnated.
3. When science had no answers!
Being a scientist, Stevenson examined gestational and genetic causes that could be the cause of such skin pigmentation formations, and found that he could only explain 30%-60% of such cases. The combination of children’s memories and their birthmarks gave Stevenson a visual indication to his research, that re-incarnation was plausible.
- Birthmarks and re-incarnation
The past and the present are deeply interwoven when birth marks are indelibly imprinted onto an individual’s physical body. This happens for two reasons. One, the body has not had enough time between its incarnations to heal. Two, the mind needs to reconnect with the past life trauma so it can be healed and released. So a birth mark is formed at the site of the past life damage when the individual chooses to reincarnate. Here are different types of birthmarks and their probable past life causes…
5. Unhealed and healed burn mark
This deep red birth-mark is the body’s way of remembering being burned by fire. The darker the mark, the less the wound has healed karmically. Usually this is because the past life is recent and the related trauma has not been processed. Healed Burn Mark: This ultra white birth-mark is the body’s way of remembering being burned by fire. The lighter the mark, the more the wound has healed karmically. Although it is somewhat healed, there are still lessons to be learned from this old wound.
6. Single bullet wound and embedded bullet wound
Single bullet wound birth-mark was caused by a bullet that entered on the left (notice the perfectly round pattern on the left compared to the right side). The uneven pattern on the right is a remnant of a related powder burn. This wound tends to be brown. Embedded Bullet Wound: This birth-mark was caused by a bullet that became embedded in the body. Notice the perfectly round shape of an antique bullet as well as the “burn” ring around this birth-mark. This wound tends to be black.
7. Sunken Bullet Wound
This birth-mark was caused by a bullet that became embedded in the body (and part of it). Notice the rounded shape of a blasted antique bullet as well as the deep indentation of this birth-mark. This wound tends to be red.
- Scattered Shots and cannon shot Scattered Shots pattern of marks was produced by sprayed shots (a bunch of bullets). The pellets of varying sizes all struck the skin at the same time in a tight pattern. This very common pattern can exist anywhere on the body. Cannon Shots: This birth-mark is becoming increasingly rare as time passes because cannons are no longer used as weapons. This wound tends to be black as the cannon shot deeply scorched the skin. With each new life, the size of the cannon birth-mark shrinks.
9. Stab wound and speared through
The slightly curved birth-mark is indicative of a fatal stab wound. When these appear on the side of the face, it was most likely from a sneak attack while sleeping and was undoubtedly fatal. Speared Through: Spots on the eye are almost always from being directly punctured there. This was a favorite form of assassination in old times. It was usually done when the individual slept. It always proved to be fatal because a stab in the eye was a stab to the brain.
- Scalped anoned Arrowd Pois
The birth-mark features a patch of the scalp where hair cannot grow and a “bloody looking” patch appears in its place. This is how the scalp would look after the patch of hair was forcibly removed. It is how the body remembers being scalped in past lives. Poisoned Arrow: The birth-mark features a central mole with a discolored ring around it. This is how a poisoned arrow wound looked. If the arrow did not kill the person, the poison it was dipped in would do so.
11. Branding Mark and Slave Chains
In older times, those who had committed crimes were often branded with a hot iron. This mark is a faded dragon brand which was placed on the back of the neck of Chinese activists and dissidents to mark them as enemies of the state. Slave Chains: Those who were in chains had their skin rubbed raw where it was constantly chafing against them. This damage was often so deep that the body would layer the area with callouses as a form of protection that often became cancer.
12. Remnants of Torture
In the past, one of the ancient torture techniques was to place a band or rope around the head and tighten it until the individual “confessed” or died. Often this torture proved to be fatal as well as leaving a birth-mark in future lives.
13. Birthmarks are an Omen
In this theory, the location of a birthmark signifies something about the person. If, for example, you happen to have a birthmark on your right arm, you’re sure to be prosperous; but, if it’s on your left, you’re going to have to pinch some pennies. Elsewhere, a left-foot birthmark means the person will be massively intelligent, while if it’s on the right, they’ll love exploration, adventure and travel. Here’s what different birthmarks and moles depict…
