Doctrine which advocates a sequence of incarnations in physical form, in other words, more than one life on Earth. Incarnations may be likened to classes in school where we learn a particular lesson as we progress. At the end of each term (incarnation) we returned home (spiritspheres). Reincarnational memories and experiences are recorded in the DNA cell code and blood cells. The word ‘reincarnation’ is not interchangeable with the word ‘transmigration’, the latter being associated, in certain teachings, with the soul’s return in animal form. Such a concept is unacceptable to Culdians, for it would mean a retrograde step not in conformity with the higher laws as they are known.
