Evidence of Reincarnation: Promoting the Positive Societal Change Reincarnation Research Can Bring

Article by Walter Semkiw, MD

Anne Frank | Barbro Karlen Past Life CaseThe mission of is to promote reincarnation research, disseminate evidence of reincarnation and to enact the positive societal change that evidence of past lives can bring.

Independently researched reincarnation cases, in particular those published by the late Ian Stevenson, MD of the University of Virginia, in aggregate, provide proof of reincarnation. Dr. Stevenson’s research focused on children who spontaneously had past life memories that could be factually verified. He compiled over 1500 validated childhood past life memory cases.

Significantly, Jim Tucker, MD, another academic psychiatrist who has taken over for Dr. Stevenson at the University of Virginia, has stated on US national television that sufficient evidence now exists to conclude that reincarnation exists. Dr. Tucker made this statement when he appeared on TV with James Leininger after the James Huston Jr. | James Leininger case was aired on ABC Primetime in 2005.

Ian Stevenson wrote in a difficult, academic style, as his target audience was fellow scientists. On the website, synopses of his past life cases are presented as easy-to-read stories, to make them accessible to all.

reincarnation researchEvidence of reincarnation shows that religion, nationality and ethnic affiliation can change from one incarnation to another. Most conflicts and wars are based on differences in these cultural markers of identity. Evidence of reincarnation can mitigate conflicts based on differences.

A dramatic reincarnation case that demonstrates that religion and nationality can change from lifetime to lifetime is that of Anne Frank | Barbro Karlen. Click on the image provided above to enlarge and assess similarity of facial features.

In closing, I would like to share a parable from my book, Born Again:

We are the Fish, not the Rivers

Imagine the great cultural movements and religions of the world as rivers. A prophet or visionary serves as a fountainhead, who initiates a philosophy, a nation or a religion. As followers join the founder, the rivulet grows into a stream. The river then builds and flows across time, across centuries. Supporters contribute to the movement, though works of art, architecture, literature and music, and the river grows more grand and deep.

Imagine that we are like fish that descend from the spiritual world and become immersed in these rivers. In one lifetime, we swim in the River of Moses, in another lifetime, we swim in the River of Christ, in yet another the River of Mohammed, in another, the River of Buddha, in another, the River of Hinduism, and so on. While one is immersed in a particular river, we tend to completely identify with that cultural stream. We become a Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu or Buddhist. We identify with the particular race, ethnicity and nationality that we find ourselves in. We forget that in other lifetimes, we have swum in the other streams too.

For peace to reign on Earth, we must become conscious of the various paths that we traverse and the various identities that we assume. We must remember that from a spiritual perspective, we are the fish, not the rivers. We are universal souls that experience these varied streams. Let us live with this awareness, so that we may all live in peace.
