Here is my story: NOT a spontaneous happening, but rather while taking a Junior College course called " literature of the Occult", which basically
meant that anything that the young, hip female teacher decided to do was what we did. It was great. this is back in the early 70's. Everyone would
come to class baked anyway..and she always had to bring in a tray of cookies because so many people got the munchies during class that it was a
distraction..with students going to the machines and buying stuff and bringing it back in..interruptions. So she brought cookies ( good ones!!) and we
all experimented with various things she knew.
First, it was meditation, claming, using candles..and discussion of all kinds of sfuff. And then, she told us that we would be doing " Past Life
Regression" and that we would get to see at least one of the past lives we lead. I was really skeptical..but curious and bold and I and a few others
volunteered to participate. WE laid down with pillows under our heads and the teacher has us close our eyes ( she did it one at a time ) and breath e
certain way, and expand..and after a while I could see myself floatring upward, like over my neighborhood, recognizing homes and streets, I was
BOOM! like a flash I was looking thru the eyes of a man, age unknown but not really young or old, in some ancient time. I could SMELL the nasty
goats and sheep in the streets and see the sandals on my feet. The detail was amazing and it was quite real. I was a part of a group of about 4 or 5
people who met in a room..everything stone..all walls, streets small stones..sounds were all authentic, or as one would imagine them to be..and we
were in a CONSPIRACY, so help me God!!
I was the one chosen to kill some leader..Names I did not get. But I felt fully vindicated in doing so, and knew that any of the others would have
done so had they chosen the short straw. That is how we determined who did the deed. I recall, and was describing to the clas in great detail under
the teachers urging, our group approached the subject, a man, and I moved in and took a large knife from my cloak and knifed the man to death. It was
so real. It was not like you see in the TV shows. I FELT the knife hitting bone and organ and felt him struggle and thrash as I held him. It was
emotionally wrenching, not at all like a dream.
After that, I was pretty affected, and the teacher brought me back around with suggestion and I recovered. It was unreal. I was convinced that it
was a true experience and not a manifestation of my imagination. It was far too detailed and personal. Over the years, I have come to ponder the
matter and am not CERTAIN that reincarnation is a fact..a likleihood perhaps, but not a fact. Not in all cases, that is. As a Christian, I believe
that one can find the final escape from the cauldron of the spirit realm and have no need of further' lessons ' in the fleshly realm: When God can
work directly with a soul, there is no need for personal experience to be the cause of all personal change and improvement. Why spend 20 more
lifetimes here when the revelation of the living God can impart what you need to know immediately, or at least vewry quickly.
BUT, again, it was as real as can be and I am willing to believe that reincarnation plays some part in the scheme of things in the spirit realm. No
other way to explain some events, and the reality of the experience is hard to deny once you do it. One girl who participated went back into the
1800's in Ireland and she gave a name and had a thick brouge..The girl that did this was NOT a character..or the type to pretend, she was serious.
She convinced me..I was next, and as I watched her laying there you could se a change physically as well..the facial muscles relaxed and she spoke and
appeared to be this girl in Ireland talking about the conditions back then and her chickens, who were ill and her main concern.
It was remarkable, and made a great impression on me. I am willing to believe that it is real: Not the whole story but a part, and a fascinating
part for sure.
