Edgar Casey, known as the most prolific prophet of our time, was the first to bring past lives to light in the 20th century. The many readings from him are archived at the Association for Research and Enlightenment center in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
A convincing form of confirmation that we live more than one life is demonstrated by those who have experienced past lives as a result of spontaneous memory or hypnotic regressions. The details are documented in many countries, and the authenticity of many of these examples cannot be disputed or an alternative explanation offered.
Established by Hazel Denning, PhD, 1980, IARRT, the International Association for Regression Research and Therapies Inc., (formerly – Association for Past Life Regression Therapies) is the premier professional organization for regression practitioners. IARRT provides education and research on past life regression and metaphysical healing.
The scientific community often refutes the proof of past lives. However, there are many scientific examples, some of them very convincing. In one case reported by Dr. Morris Netherton, an eleven year old boy, who, under hypnosis, was tapped to speak in an ancient Chinese dialect. This startling regression tape was taken to a professor in the Department of Oriental Studies at the University of California, where it was discovered to be a recitation of a forbidden religion from ancient China. (Fisher 1986:202.)
In the past ten years, multiple independently investigated reincarnation cases have emerged, revealing that from life to life, people have the same facial features, personality traits, passions, and even linguistic writing style. The most convincing cases involve those in which children have spontaneous memories of a past life that can be verified with facts. The James Leininger case, broadcast on ABC Primetime in 2005, and the Anne Frank/Barbro Karlen case, are examples. See the reference below.
Walter Semkiw, MD, author of Return of the Revolutionaries: The Case for Reincarnation and Soul Groups Reunited and Born Again, independently investigated reincarnation cases that demonstrate objective evidence of reincarnation, including the cases of neurosurgeon Norm Shealy, police captain Robert Snow, assistant. Fire Chief Jeff Keene and William Barnes.
The case of Robert Snow, captain of the Indianapolis Police Department, in charge of the Homicide Division, was initiated by a challenge from a fellow police officer. Captain Snow, in his book Looking for Carroll Beckwith, recounts that he only regressed so he wouldn’t appear to have “dared”. Captain Snow did not believe in reincarnation and did not expect to have a meaningful experience. After his regression, Captain Snow investigated Beckwith’s life by studying an extensive journal found in Beckwith’s belongings. Of the 28 specific memories Snow documented from the regression, such as the painting of a hunchbacked woman, 26 were verified through his research. Although initially reluctant to accept reincarnation as the basis for his regression experience, Captain Snow eventually came to the conclusion that he was Carroll Beckwith in a previous life. Snow claims that the evidence he collected would stand in a court case and that a plea bargain would not be offered if it were a murder case.
Past lives can also be derived from spontaneous memories and confirmed in past life regressions.
William Barnes, author of Thomas Andrews, Voyage into History, began having spontaneous past life memories as a child. Thomas Andrews, Voyage into History, is the story of Tommie Andrews, the designer of the Titanic. Barnes’s motivation for writing this book is, in part, to clear Tommie’s name of any wrongdoing in the context of the sinking of the Titanic and to document his vivid recollection of this life. In a recorded flashback to the life of Thomas Andrews, Barnes speaks with a thick Irish accent as he describes the ordeal of the sinking of the Titanic and relives his death on the deck of the great ship.
Jenny Cockell had memories of living in Ireland. She recalled events from her previous life, such as the names of her eight children. As a child, Ella Cockell made a drawing of a church and a map of the town from her childhood from her previous life, with a precise description of her house, etc. The impact of these memories disrupted her daily functioning to the point that she consulted a hypnotherapist. After many past life regressions and armed with a list of various items, including two oval-shaped photos, one of her as a child and the other of a soldier, she wants to return to the city where she lived in her previous life. Not only did he find the house with a hutch out back (now in disrepair) where he died at a young age, leaving his eight children motherless, but he found and met seven of his living adult children from that time. Her eldest son of hers, a son of hers, though reluctant to meet with her, finally agreed. Together they compared the memories: only one item on Jenny’s memory list remained uncorroborated by him. The ABC TV program 20/20 documented the reunion, including a birthday party with her eldest son from her previous life.
The most deeply researched proof of past live connections is documented by National Geographic’s DNA Journey. You can explore your own genetic journey with Dr. Spencer Wells’ Deep Ancestry: Inside the Genographic Project. DNA analysis includes a description of your ancient ancestors and an interactive map that traces your genetic lineage around the world and through the ages.
Diba Ayten Yilmaz, Past Life Regression Therapist, Turkey wrote. “One of my clients is a 39-year-old woman, a computer engineer at IBM Turkey. At the first meeting she mentioned that she had felt an attraction to Russia since childhood. She found herself as a woman in Russia in the first past. Regression therapy session of life. She sent her DNA sample to the National Geographic Genographic Project. The results showed her origin goes to Russia! In the second regression session, she found herself as a young woman in a small town, which she named Lapland had been killed by German soldiers along with all the people.
After the session, both women wanted to know if Lapland existed, and if so, where. They searched the internet and saw that there was an area called Lapland in Sweden. The second question was about the German soldiers. Yes, German soldiers had killed all the people in the small Lapland town at the end of World War II.
The amazing thing is; after the session she went back to consult his genographic results in National Geographic. The NG follows and updates the results of the DNA trip and saw that his DNA has a connection to Lapland!
If you want to see the results of his DNA, I can send them to you. Can you verify your DNA results in NG or do you know someone who has verified it?”
