The Reincarnation Lab

Shipwreck survivors

There is a Reincarnation Lab at the University of Virginia This is unbelievably cool. We SHOULD be studying this schizz.

From this amazing article in The Atlantic – definitely worth reading in full:

…Dr Tucker, who is a certified child psychiatrist, primarily works with children who’ve reported memories that are not their own—oftentimes linked to real-life individuals who lived decades in the past and thousands of miles away. To Tucker, these findings suggest the plausibility of “survival of personality after death”—something like a law of conservation of energy applied to human consciousness. Reincarnation, to the layperson.
“The main effort is to document as carefully as possible what the child says and determine how well that matches with a deceased person,” he told me. “And in the strongest cases, those similarities can be quite compelling.”
The cases Tucker refers to are indeed quite compelling.

 

In an interview with NPR’s Rachel Martin earlier this month, he talked about James Leininger, a Louisiana boy who reported memories of flying a fighter jet in World War II. At around age 2, James experienced terrible nightmares, almost nightly, of violent plane crashes. During the day, he relayed extremely vivid memories of this supposed Air Force career. He recalled the name of a real aircraft carrier stationed in the Pacific during World War II (“Natoma”). He claimed to have a friend on the boat named Jack Larsen. He had memory of being shot down by the Japanese and dying near Iwo Jima.

 

The USS Natoma Bay lost only one pilot at Iwo Jima, a man named James Huston, and he died in a crash that matched Leininger’s description almost exactly: “Hit in the engine, exploding into fire, crashing into the water and quickly sinking,” Tucker said. “And when that happened, the pilot of the plane next to his was Jack Larsen.”
Spooky, right? Surely little James was merely parroting information he had absorbed elsewhere. “Children’s brains are like sponges,” the saying goes, but Tucker’s findings suggest something more profound at work. For one thing, James Huston is simply not a well known person. A cursory Google search of his name reveals only press related to Leininger’s claims. It’s hard to say how Leininger or his parents could have possibly known anything about Huston before the nightmares began.
Huston’s story is so obscure that it took Leininger’s father three to four years to track down his information. James Huston was killed more than fifty years before James Leininger’s birth, and came from Pennsylvania—more than a thousand miles from the Leininger family home in Louisiana. What’s more, James Leininger was only two years old when he first reported memories of Huston’s fiery death.
“It seems absolutely impossible that he could have somehow gained this information as a 2-year-old through some sort of normal means,” Tucker told NPR.

 

 I have always believed in reincarnation.  From the moment I first heard about it, it seemed totes plausible. THOUGHTS?

On this buzzfeed list: Two children, both 2 years old at the time, giving detailed descriptions of how their former selves died. Nuff said.

totally believe in past lives, but so far I have no idea what mine have entailed…except for that I have a libra south node and read that I spent many past lives serving others and because of that have trouble knowing my own identity. which totally rings true, this life is all about forming an identity + being more aries-like. I feel a close friend of mine was a lover in a past life because there has been an intense connection since when I first met him and I really DON’T connect with many people. Due to some complicated circumstances… Read more »

Past life regression via Deep Memory Process training with Pat Walsh. A sad and brutal life. yet the goddess was visible in part of the regression in the form of an opalescent sphere, the life served a purpose. Because of regression training I no longer see karma or lifetimes as linear. That life in part unveils my Pluto, Venus, SNode and Saturn.

interesting…That life in part unveils my Pluto, Venus, SNode and Saturn.

Re the goddess as a opalescent sphere – i have had a presence I guess you could say of feminine energy when I meditate lately – like a bright, oval shaped peach/apricot coloured light – very loving and gentle that feels supportive…..

So we fuel our Pisces tendencies – art compassion spirituality – to pave the way for our next incarnation? I have unconciously been doing this while my strong analytical organisational service orientation dovetails with this ….. I would love to have a relationship with a man who encouraged my NN Pisces without the co- dependence – hoping for kindness and spiritual connection instead

Well she had a past life reading done years ago and was told she had been my mother – Victorian times – heavy disciplinarian who would beat me! She is pretty bossy! Another multi Virgo hahahah.

ooh, funny you should say that DH, as I just found Hecate on my SN too! Defo a witch in a past life 🙂

As you probably know Dr. Roger Whoolger, now deceased, pioneered something called Deep Memory Process an easily learned and powerful method of exploring past lives and their effect on the present. It is profound and very emotional.

The most vivid dream I had years ago was my father came to me and showed me like a giant movie screen, first of my sister, then of me. I have to insert here that dad passed over 30 years ago, and any time he comes in my dreams it is wonderful, and I wake up in happy tears because it is so nice to remember how much he loved us. He hasn’t visited in a long time now, but he used to before. Anyway, he showed me my sister first, and she was sitting under a cypress tree, in… Read more »

Seth books Yesss! Love Nature of Personal Reality from reading it 25 years ago. My niece told me at three, ” You know I wasn’t always a girl. Last time I was a boy.” We have always been super close- and she is very boho, muse inspired, writer, traveler and observer of trends. She’s married and still very soul centered. Re-karma/karmic. It’s not immutable. I think -“business to take care of ” because you can still choose. Karma has been glammed up too much. My husband and I worked out our heavy stuff – we are through after this.

The idea that past lives are part of the collective and that other practitioners might be accessing the same information is so fascinating to me.

I liken the lives that live inside of us, our dna/genetics/soul….as states of mind. The Soul is a bundle of mind energy that manifests as us, with a body. Of course the prototype for the physical body was there as it came from the Eternal Veda as a created humanoid. We just weren’t meant to carry all this stuff around (be so physical).

Accessed a memory in trance of my brother and I in the northern united states.
We were native americans, we were both just sitting drinking and watching the town go by in wonderment.
Nothing else to do as most of our tribe were dead.

But it was nice just hanging out with my brother.

with venus conjunct south node and chiron I have sort of become resigned to each relationship that has a venusian vibe being a sort of clearing-house for one issue or another, but it would just be really awesome if even one of these unions could be a fantastic, mutual, joyous thing that just illuminates life instead of constant challenges to self. come on universe. you know it’s easy. just do it.

Loving all these comments. I have never had any experiences or memories that I could put in the ‘past life’ category. Unless you count the end of my marriage. That has felt like the ending of a thousand-year cycle but as I’ve observed here before I suspect most people ending a marriage have that leaden weight feeling of finality. It certainly never felt karmic or destined or thunderbolt-like when we met. It felt safe – now I know why – because it was largely sexless and I had ‘issues’ at the time. My sun-Saturn-Merc is exact conj my ex’s SN.… Read more »

that’s interesting Chrys, I wanted to chime in and say….some things we carry from past lives don’t serve us in this life and we are probably best to let them go. I’m not really talking about people now, but more interior things of that makes sense…like aspects of the operational system. Some, I guess, do. With people, I have found understanding the past life connection has helped me to process what lesson they have joined me in this life to share. Some of those connections I have later let go of as well. My daughter? I’m not sure. I think… Read more »

All of the men that I’ve ever loved the best and had the best relationships with OR felt some kind of more-than-just-a-celebrity-crush kind of insane attraction to were Aries men. Most of my most frustrating relationships (deep love as well as deep, deep hurt) have been with Geminis (two boyfriends, and my mother.) And my two most intense female friendships, with deep love and a little bit of envy on my part have been with Cap women. It’s most likely just Astro personality,… Read more »

FINALLY. I have always thought that these children need to be given more attention, and understanding. I even cried as a child myself, reading stories like this, and that the children wanted to share but were not understood.

As a small child, I had plenty of memories myself but i don’t know whose they were. So i can’t really say past lives. Certain people i’ve known have triggered deep detailed memories of places and times, usually in bed. It’s a weird time to be triggered but there it is.

OMG – lol – this happened with the Pisces – your astro twin – and me! In bed and he saw me in a past life persona. He was like “How do I say that? Its you. Your reincarnated self is so hot?” lol.

Hey you’re kidding! If the connection is really close i can get them to see it through my mind a little too…er, difficult to explain? I can open their mind’s eye to it.

I def had experiences of hearing him in my head. It was dreamy because we were really connected. Then, that part of me that questions woke up and sometimes I would say “what did you say?” I think once I said that and he said he was just thinking it. Not sure we ever scientifically confirmed these things. Intense for sure. But…we got caught up in conditional love, I think. On both sides. And you can’t be conditional and do that sort of connection, it gets sick and twisted quick and I’m glad we didn’t do that to each other.… Read more »

I don’t know what he knows about his seeing. He said painting scares him because he gets so into it he looses himself. I think that’s just because he’s hiding tomb-bomb emotional issues in himself and he needs to do a good clearing. Then, I have to remind myself most people spend a lifetime avoiding just that sort of clearing.

Honestly, i don’t think he knows himself as well as that, or he would be working like a bitch on himself.

You find what is true doesn’t fade but all the illusions around it, and the hubris around it, will fade. But you know that, 12HV. And my family Virgo, i do that to her since for ever!

The first time I saw my ex husband, which was in a public space, I knew I would see him again – that stranger passing by – and that we’d be an item. And when we got married, I thought “we will have an OK divorce. I recognized others – was sure the Sag was my soul mate twin flame end-all-be-all. I must have more than one main man 🙂 I’ve given up the idea that those recognition moments mean anything other than “uh oh, this will happen and this will be hard to recover from”

I have grown to love the pain and the joy they bring. You cannot have that high without risking that low and I know that the low was worth it for the connection it brought.
As to main man, yup I know this is main man. I’ve had so many that it is easy to recognise this one.

I think its a pleasure/pain ratio. The magic of the coming together must outweigh the pain of the issues that force separation. So, in memory, I tended to forget the atomic bomb that broke the connection to begin with and wondered about the connection, as if the connection is separate from the separation. Its an energy dynamic. And the second time around for me – there was WAY more pain than pleasure. I guess it healthy because I don’t wonder about him anymore.

Check out ‘The afterlife experiments’ by Gary Schwartz or the research of Ian Stevenson both very credentialed mainstream scientists showing some very clear indications of consciousness existing beyond what has been seen as normal. The Gary Schwartz stuff uses increasingly rigorous orthodox scientific methodology that proves consciousness survives/exists independent of the bod.

Time isn’t actually linear, but for the sake of keeping it simple I have had (& witnessed others having) future life, past life and concurrent life experiences in trance. My understanding is that we are all one being. Howevs, within that unity consciousness we have fragmented and it’s like we are grouped like family. At least that is the way we perceive things. Adam & Eve is the story of that fragmentation of our consciousness in a way. I think we have past lives that we are closely allied with. They are essential to the comprehension of our current life… Read more »

Which leads to the question……Are there astrologer markers for believing in reincarnation or for having memories of a past life??????????????

Charles

My buddhist sect believes in reincarnation, but also believes it doesn’t make any difference because you can never know for sure what happened in a past life, so it can never affect your current one. But you do still carry that past life’s karma, even though you have no idea how or why you acquired it. Whenever I think of reincarnation, I am reminded of T. Lobsang Rampa. Supposedly he was a perfectly ordinary modern guy, a plumber. Then a brick fell off a building onto his head, and nearly killed him.

I had a day of reading about that guy on a conspiracy theory site a while ago. Fascinating.

When i started doing qi gong and having acupuncture with someone who also practised qi gong there was some stuff happening that can only be described as time travel. It was timed deliberately to start with eclipses too so that might’ve helped. I was born within 2 days of an eclipse.

you seem like the kind of person who might get into the esoteric acupuncture points – maybe ask your practitioner about them if you’re interested. I think there’s ancestor points too. To clear the miasms.

No, definitely not a zen. I probably should not say which exact sect. They probably would not like me being a spokesman, I have some idiosyncratic interpretations of their doctrines. But then, they have some pretty idiosyncratic doctrines all of their own accord. Maybe that’s why I joined. In any case, I am a bad buddhist, there’s no temple within hundreds of miles and I haven’t been near one in 10 years.

No doubts whatsoever – I have met three people in my life that I know with every cell in my body, I have known in a past life. It is an INSTANT recognition. I also feel that those people are the hardest to let go of if it is romantic. I also know that for some reason these connections can be as short as a day or as long as a lifetime.

Yep. Have to agree re the hard to let of if connection is romantic. LZ tendencies notwithstanding – there’s nothing quite so addictive as multiple past life connections like you don’t need anyone to tell you it exists – you already KNOW dude and add a Venus — Chiron link , with a Venus, Uranus, Moon – mars in the 8th in each other’s charts and…

Seems there is more to this than just beliefs/intuition/psychic phenomena…

Recent research has discovered that via epigenetics – where the environment changes DNA, and those changes get passed on to the next generation(s) – fear of a given smell can be inherited. Surely other senses cannot be far behind being discovered.

Mind: blown!

Jury’s out for me on reincarnation. I don’t buy the whole linear chronology angle. I think we all have access to all of the memories and something, possibly dna possible astro, possibly the energy or magnetic nature of the place we reside in allows us to access the vault. Think certain events or changes in electro magnetic frequencies, even smells may trigger a visit to the vault. As a child of about 3-4 my father took me to the zoo and we stood in front of the camels and I told him the difference between the two kinds and how… Read more »

funny – so I’ve been around people who talk about the akashic records but I never really knew where that came from. I had a few weird experiences at a certain time in my life when I could remote view a library kind of place where information was held but this was as an adult – is that akashic records?

Is it handed down from Blavatsky’s writing / that era of theosophy and white brotherhood stuff?

Thanks – did some searching and it is thought he got it from Blavatsky. It’s from that phase of time when the new age was born as a reaction to the onset of modernity. She probably got it from the buddhists or one of the eastern religions.

I have a total past life beef with the Egyptians – the entire culture. Its like, I cannot be unbiased about it. They enslaved a lot of people. In a way, people are still enslaved by the mind control techniques they implemented. And I don’t mean to sound like a conspiracy theorist as its more about writing and economy than anything magical.

Andromeda

It’s a conumdrum, but not unique to Egypt, that with large scale food security in the form of society comes ranking and divisions according to ability etc. but I am curious that you single Egypt out (with mass slavery endemic in China/India/Africa etc)!
I had a lot of issues with Egypt, but then found a lot of past life stuff there.. 😉 .

it’s funny because Egypt does next to nothing for me as far as resonance / present-life excitement goes. South america /aztec/incan empires, russia, northern europe, the Levant maybe (yes ok this sort of includes egypt according to wiki), oceanside locations, yes. African continent in general, … not really. hmm

i mean i don’t do them in the sense of the vault theory. I also think ideas can be made manifest and that if and object or space is imbued with an idea strongly enough it can make it real. Like holograms or something. Like those situations where if enough people believe something others begin to see it too.

Yeah I get this. I just aim for simplicity so I subscribe to past lives, but i think they are like models or ideas with form too. I am conservative in interpreting what these states are about, particularly with clients, because to some degree its an all an illusion. Most people lose grasp of the power of this kind of work at that level, so I tend to work with what is explicitly stated or experienced. But yah! We are the Dreamer & the Dream, 🙂 .

I started reading about this issue when I heard that there were a whole lot of slaves at the chinese embassy in canberra being brought in on those special visas to do work and never getting to leave the compound. It’s everywhere but I think that the statistics are indicative of the explosion of populations globally. Not that it makes it any better but is probably relative.

Tibet and Tibetan Buddhism had created a nation of slaves when you look at it. Tibet’s feudal style set up really enslaved the poor via priestly power.

I’m also unsure, and agree with ‘the vault’ and link with astro + DNA. I’m fascinated with family members charts and looking at links/conjunctions through generations. There are fascinating links from children to parents, grandparents, great grandparents and even aunts (no uncles to check) but not between siblings. My daughter and I have numerous conjunctions, she has the same moon as my mum exact and likewise I have similar connections with my parents and grandparents.

We do remember our past lives. Why they started talking more about it now, because our ‘new comers’ kids are more outspoken, then we were and these Souls didnt had millenia to re-encarnate, but mere hundreds and dosens of years. My earliest memory was at age 5 and I knew stuff back then and was surprised how others didnt know, but the moment I told my parents about it – yep, they laughed at my ‘stupid’ ideas and I stopped talking about it all untill I became an adult and found similar Souls, that understand.

Absolutely believe in it. There’s a great series called the ghost inside my child (spooky name) all about this subject. They interview real life families. I think the family you discussed here was featured on one of the episodes. It is on the biography channel but plays on lifetime too (naturally). Also, I’ve read the Brian Weiss book Only Love is Real and highly recommend it. It tells the story of people who find their soul mates lifetime after lifetime and is written by a psychiatrist who studied at Yale medical school. Shiz is legit.

Nice contribution. In the circular toroidal movement of love, dance and conversation of soul with soul, soul with matter, soul with spirit there might be some astro measure. I’ve learned Neptune, 12th, Pisces symbolizes the collective unconscious and Uranus, 11th, Aquarius the individual unconscious. I have also felt the role of cardinals as outward projectors, seekers in the theatre of projection. Round and around and around we go.
