Over the course of our lifetimes, we leave all kinds of loose ends lying around the world. We may come into this life intending to find closure or healing for one or more of them. This could mean completing an unfinished journey, letting go of an old pain or keeping a promise to return somewhere one day.

Sometimes we don’t have to travel far to do that. If it’s important to be in a certain place for past-life reasons, we may simply be born there.

There can be many good reasons for being reborn in the same place again. For example, when a life ends suddenly, the spirit will often reincarnate very quickly in the same area. This makes it easy to pick up where it left off.
