What life choices, actions, or events would most likely carry on into the next lifetime? (Ex: marriage, being wealthy, having a new hobby, etc.)
Any of the choices, actions or events that still have attachment for us will follow us into the next life. Depending on the strength of the attachments to the qualities of our past lives, tendencies will manifest, again, as a weak or strong part of that new incarnation. The attachments of past life stay with us like seeds waiting to sprout again. Meditation will dissolve those attachments, especially those that may hold us back in this lifetime. Crystal Clarity publishes an excellent book on Karma and Reincarnation: The Wisdom of Yogananda series you may want to read. It is a wonderful resource about reincarnation. Blessings to you.
