Many people believe we come right back here.
Leslie Jamison’s Giving Up the Ghost started out by highlighting a little boy names James, who was having nightmares about going down in an airplane. His name was still James, but the plane he went down on launched from a boat called Natoma Bay, and his friends Walter, Billy and Leon had already died. Only his friend Jack survived. He was shot down by the Japanese.
A war buff might realize it, but James was describing events in his dreams that very closely matched WW2, the battle of Iwo Jima.
James had no knowledge of this war, he was only two. But when his parents looked into it, they found the boat their son described, as well as Walter, Billy and Leon. And the friend who survived, Jack Larsen, was still alive.
There are things in our world that can only be explained by the unexplainable. Reincarnation is a well-known theory, and quite a few believe in it as well. When we have multiple stories of kids remembering events that happened before they were born, it becomes hard to ignore it.
There is too much we don’t understand about our world. Who’s to say there isn’t even more that we don’t know. We don’t even know what we don’t know.
Reincarnation has been around for a very long time, and we have quite a few cases like James’ that might prove it true. While a large amount of mystical, paranormal, hocus pocus is smoke and mirrors and mass hysteria, the small things, like remembering a life before your own, might not be so crazy.
