Jealousy is a feeling of anxiety, suspicion, anger, possessiveness and uncertainty caused by the fear of losing or not obtaining the affection or attention of someone because they prefer other people.
Jealousy has several variations, including obsessive jealousy, which leads to the constant suspicion of fictitious infidelity, the exclusive result of imagination.
Then there is retroactive jealousy, or Rebecca’s syndrome, which concerns the partner’s sentimental and sexual past. The subject who is struck by this syndrome imagines situations that their partner may have lived with others before their first meeting, and feels very upset.
Retroactive jealousy turns into hyper-retroactive jealousy, when it includes past lives and feelings of discomfort, humiliation and an acute sense of betrayal derived from the sentimental relationships the partner had in previous reincarnations. In this case it is treason by anticipation, in some ways more serious than the ordinary one, especially in cases of alleged twin souls. In the perspective of the temporal continuum, in fact, the partner was equally unfaithful and did not have the sensibility to foresee that afterwards there would have been the meeting with the present companion, thus causing the latter to experience a lot of suffering.
Another variation is the irretroactive jealousy, which applies to the future, including the upcoming reincarnations. Here resentment and anxiety derive from the future. Even if both in the past, including past reincarnations, and in the present, the partner has behaved impeccably, there is still the possibility that they misbehave in the future. Indeed, in this case, the fact that the partner has never betrayed before, makes it more susceptible to betray in the next lives, and this causes unbearable pain.
There are also other variations …
On the other hand, there is compersion.
Compersion is the state of empathic joy that comes when a person we love is happy with other people.
