Link with our past life

Birthmarks are believed to have a profound connection between your past and the present. Any unexplained scar on your body can be an evidence of your previous incarnation or the way you died in your last life. Marks are formed at a site of the past life damage, and absence of one implies a natural death.

Strangely enough, birthmarks can occur for two reasons in this case; Either if the body has not got enough time to heal between its incarnation or if the mind wishes to reconnect with the past life trauma so that it can be treated.

Moreover, the shape of the birthmark can be more telling. While a sword or dagger could indicate stabbing, On the other hand, a flame or torch shape could mean death by fire. A circular mark can show a bullet hole.
