Do souls agree between lives to experience tragedy?

Many people who study past life regression and lives between lives say that we make many decisions prior to our births about the type of life that we will experience during this lifetime.

Some believe that we choose our parents because those two individuals will put us in the very circumstances that we need to learn the lessons that we want to learn. If there is a major challenge that we are grappling with in our lives, many believe that we chose that too.

So it’s not too far-fetched to wonder if when major tragedies occur and a lot of lives are lost, if those souls determined that they would be a part of that event.

When major tragic events happen, such as terrorist attacks, earthquakes, and wars, there is often a major energetic shift in our world. After tragedies, people are often inspired to look more closely at their own lives with a new sense of appreciation. Some people may make life-transforming changes to their lives.

Clearly these events have a greater impact on humankind’s evolution than day-to-day happenings. If a soul chooses to be a part of one of these events is that soul sacrificing his or her life to a greater cause?

Some believe that very evolved, or old souls, agree to experience tragedy in a lifetime in order to inspire others to evolve. Many say that a lot of old souls will incarnate during periods of strife such as wars, famine and other terrible times. (Sometimes old souls may even agree to play the role of ‘villain’ in a particular lifetime since that might be what society needs at that time.)

When these souls incarnate together, they can collectively do their part to help society to evolve. Some people believe that the world is entering one of these times now as we’re seeing much more violence, tragedy as well as more natural disasters. may receive compensation if users buy products or services mentioned or advertised on this site or click on some of the links on this site.
