Scientists Finally Prove Reincarnation by RestroFlamez(m): 7:54am On Jan 02, 2014
HAVE YOU LIVED BEFORE? The concept of
reincarnation -- that our souls may experience
many lifetimes over centuries, maybe even
thousands of years -- has been present in virtually
every culture since ancient times. The Egyptians,
Greeks, Romans and Aztecs all believed in the
"transmigration of souls" from one body to another
after death. It's a fundamental precept of Hinduism.
Although reincarnation is not a part of official
Christian doctrine, many Christians believe in it or
at least accept its possibility. (Jesus, it is believed,
was reincarnated three days after his crucifixion.)
That's not at all surprising; the idea that after death
we can live again as another person -- maybe as
the opposite sex or in a completely different station
in life -- is intriguing and, for many people, highly
appealing.
Is there any truth to it, however? Is reincarnation
just an idea, a fantasy? Or is there real evidence to
support it? Here's some of the best evidence
available, gathered by researchers who, in some
cases, have devoted their lives to the subject.
Examine it, then decide for yourself.
PAST LIFE REGRESSION HYPNOSIS
The practice of reaching past lives through hypnosis
is controversial, primarily because hypnosis is not a
reliable tool. Hypnosis can certainly help reach the
unconscious mind, but the information found there
is not reliable as truth. It has been shown that the
practice can create false memories. That doesn't
mean, however, that regression hypnosis should be
dismissed out of hand. If the past life information
can be verified through research, the case for
reincarnation can be considered more seriously
The most famous case of past life regression
through hypnosis is that of Ruth Simmons. In
1952, her therapist, Morey Bernstein, took her
back past the point of her birth. Suddenly, Ruth
began to speak with an Irish accent and claimed
that her name was Bridey Murphy, who lived in
19th century Belfast, Ireland. Ruth recalled many
details of her life as Bridey, but, unfortunately,
attempts to find out if Ms. Murphy really existed
were unsuccessful. There was, however, some
indirect evidence for the truth of her story: under
hypnosis, Bridey mentioned the names of two
grocers in Belfast from whom she bought food, Mr.
Farr and John Carrigan. A Belfast librarian found a
city directory for 1865-1866 that listed both men
as grocers. Her story was told both in a book by
Bernstein and in a 1956 movie, The Search for
Bridey Murphy.
ILLNESSES AND PHYSICAL AILMENTS
Do you have a life-long illness or physical pain that
you cannot account for? Their roots could be in
some past life trauma, some researchers suspect.
In "Have We Really Lived Before?", Michael C.
Pollack, Ph.D., CCHT describes his lower back
pain, which grew steadily worse over the years
and limited his activities. He believes he found out
a possible reason during a series of past life
therapy sessions: "I discovered that I had lived at
least three prior lifetimes in which I had been
killed by being knifed or speared in the low back.
After processing and healing the past life
experiences my back began to heal."
Research conducted by Nicola Dexter, a past life
therapist, has discovered correlations between
illnesses and past lives in some of her patients,
including: a bulimia sufferer who swallowed salt
water in a previous life; a fear of indoor heights
caused by carving the ceiling of a church and
being killed by falling to the floor; a persistent
problem in the shoulder and the arm area having
been caused by participating in a tug of war which
injured the same arm; a fear of razors and shaving
was found to have its root cause in another
lifetime where the client had chopped off
someone's fingers with a sword and then as
retribution had his entire hand cut off.

PHOBIAS AND NIGHTMARES
Where does seemingly irrational fear come from?
Fear of heights, fear of water, of flying? Many of us
have normal reservations about such things, but
some people have fears so great that they become
debilitating. And some fears are completely baffling
-- a fear of carpets, for example. Where do such
fears come from? The answer, of course, can be
psychologically complex, but researchers think that
in some cases there might be a connection to a
previous life.

At "Healing Past Lives through Dreams", author
J.D. tells of his claustrophobia and a tendency to
panic when his arms and legs were confined or
restricted in any way. He believes that a dream of
a past life uncovered a trauma from a past life
that explained this fear. "One night in the dream
state I found myself hovering over a disturbing
scene," he writes. "It was a town in fifteenth-
century Spain, and a frightened man was being
hog-tied by a small jeering crowd. He had
expressed beliefs contrary to the church. Some
local ruffians, with the blessing of the church
officials, were eager to administer justice. The
men bound the heretic hand and foot, then
wrapped him very tightly in a blanket. The crowd
carried him to an abandoned stone building,
shoved him into a dark corner under the floor, and
left him to die. I realized with horror the man was
me."

PHYSICAL APPEARANCE
In his book Someone Else's Yesterday, Jeffrey J.
Keene theorizes that a person in this life can
strongly resemble the person he or she was in a
previous life. Keene, an Assistant Fire Chief who
lives in Westport, Connecticut, believes he is the
reincarnation of John B. Gordon, a Confederate
General of the Army of Northern Virginia, who died
on January 9 1904. As evidence, he offers photos of
himself and the general -- and, indeed, there is a
striking resemblance. Beyond physical similarities,
Keene says that "they think alike, look alike and
even share facial scars. Their lives are so
intertwined that they appear to be one."
Another case is that of artist Peter Teekamp, who
believes he could be the reincarnation of artist Paul
Gauguin. Here, too, there is a physical resemblence
and similarities in their work as well.
CHILDREN'S SPONTANEOUS RECALL AND
SPECIAL KNOWLEDGE
Many small children who claim to recall past lives
express thoughts, describe specific actions and
environments, and even know foreign languages --
none of which they could know or have learned
from their present experiences. Many cases like this
are documented in Carol Bowman's Children's Past Lives
Eighteen-month-old Elsbeth had never spoken a
complete sentence. But one evening, as her
mother was bathing her, Elsbeth spoke up and
gave her mother a shock. "I'm going to take my
vows," she told her mother. Taken aback, she
questioned the baby girl about her queer
statement. "I'm not Elsbeth now," the child
replied. "I'm Rose, but I'm going to be Sister
Teresa Gregory." She later described her nun's
habit in detail as well as her daily chores at the
convent.

When little Tommy was about five years old, a
button from his pants had popped off. When his
mother didn't sew it back on right away, Tommy
found her needle and thread and did the job
himself. "[He] sewed that button on so expertly
that I couldn't believe it," his mother said. "I had
never taught him to sew and he had never even
seen me do it." When she asked how he knew how
to do that, Tommy relied, "Well, we used to do it
on my ship all of the time." He then related details
of his previous life as a sailor.

Handwriting ? How exactly do we learn them?
BIRTHMARKS AND BIRTH DEFECTS
Dr. Ian Stevenson, head of the Department of
Psychiatric Medicine at the University of Virginia
School of Medicine, Charlottesville, Virginia, is one
of the foremost researchers and authors on the
subject of reincarnation and past lives. In 1993, he
wrote a paper entitled "Birthmarks and Birth
Defects Corresponding to Wounds on Deceased
Persons" as possible physical evidence for past
lives. "Among 895 cases of children who claimed to
remember a previous life (or were thought by adults
to have had a previous life)," Stevenson writes,
"birthmarks and/or birth defects attributed to the
previous life were reported in 309 (35%) of the
subjects. The birthmark or birth defect of the child
was said to correspond to a wound (usually fatal) or
other mark on the deceased person whose life the
child said it remembered."
But could any of these cases be verified?

In one fascinating case, an Indian boy claimed to
remember the life of a man named Maha Ram,
who was killed with a shotgun fired at close range.
This boy had an array of birthmarks in the center
of his chest that looked like they could possibly
correspond to a shotgun blast. So the story was
checked out. Indeed, there was a man named
Maha Ram who was killed by a shotgun blast to
the chest. An autopsy report recorded the man's
chest wounds -- which corresponded directly with
the boy's birthmarks.
A man from Thailand claimed that when he was a
child he had distinct memories of a past life -- as
his own paternal uncle. This man had a large scar-
like birthmark on the back of his head. His uncle,
it turns out, died from a severe knife wound to
that very part of his head

and who told you its from an objective and systematic scientific enquiry
Personally, I hate the idea of reincarnation, I would prefer an after-life to being reborn without memories.
