In my experience personally and from what I have seen in psychic readings with clients, there are people who are not part of the regular reincarnational cycle on earth.
From my experience, they seem to embody knowledge and truths that others are aspiring to attain.
For those folks, life on earth can be challenging especially if they have parents who are, shall we say, regular people. They see the world differently. Their values are different. They are not likely to take the same route as most do, get a secure job, get a house, have children, go on vacations -- and for that they are mocked, criticized and ostracized.
One of my jobs in giving psychic readings is to help these people understand themselves, understand who they are, mostly inform them that they don't have to do what everyone is doing and to explain to them that the truths they instinctively know, most people do not know. Once they understand who they are, life becomes much easier.
In this interview, Steve Nobel talks about these kinds of people. I don't agree with a number of things he says, nevertheless, he says a lot of things that may have value for people. I do, as always, recommend you listen with a critical mind. Never accept anything that does not resonate deeply with you. Never allow anyone to be the authority of your being, your life -- maintain your sovereignty.
