I've always wondered how mediums contact spirits who have passed over (and even identify ancestors you didn't know, but know of, etc.) and then assert that reincarnation is a very real occurrence. I don't feel very strongly either way, but it seems to be a contradiction. Or maybe those who have reincarnated don't come through in a reading because they're back in another life somewhere.

I found this link, which seems a bit of a stretch, at least in my opinion, but who knows?

Maybe -- but with reincarnation, I've always heard that we are here to do work on ourselves. It makes sense then, that when we leave here, we have to process those lessons, and that takes time. Just like evil people -- I've always heard evil people are there for a long time to process and get it.

And while time is linear for us, it isn't linear in other places -- so when the medium contacts great grandmum, to great grandmum her death might have just happened for her.

Yes, I sure hope I get to stay in heaven for awhile before coming back here, or wherever we may reincarnate to. We'd get too tired otherwise. I want my summer break!

I see no contradiction.

My relatives may reincarnate in 80 years when all their
loved ones on earth are on the Other Side themselves.

There is no time or sense of time on the Other Side, as has been described
innumerable times in NDEs.
Ah, here, from Natalie Sudman's book,"Application of Impossible Things"
After being blown up in Irag...

"I retreated to a deep place...where I could recuperate...this state lasted an equivalent
of centuries within less than a moment."

She had vast experiences with a group she called a Gathering...vast...yet
when she came back into her body...the vehicle was still rolling!!
She has the highest IQ of any NDE person I have read.
I highly recommend her book.
