and I would hold the baby picture and hold a current photo -- typically the driver's license
the baby has not only an "energy" but also an "optimal" path -- the person sitting in front of you has, for sure, NOT lived a life in which he or she has maximized the benefits of the energy inherent in the baby
and somewhere along the way has fallen short of this "potential"
simple formula: baby's potential minus current state of actualization equals "karma"
BP - CS = K
but not karma in the sense of being punished, but rather karma in the sense of being "tested"
some people, perhaps, need more tests to "motivate them"
we ALL start off with a LOT, yet somewhere along the way, the shine gets worn down
re-discovering the power of the baby's "potential" is (to me) the key to reclaiming your power
by living up (more) to your TRUE potential
. . . your "birth right"
and I still feel that exploring past lives is the best, most effective, way
in which to do this
