One of the biggest questions that plague our lives is whether or not we have lived before? Do we really only live once? Ancient civilizations have believed in reincarnation. And many people in our current society believe that they have lived before. There are several cases of people remembering remarkable things from previous lives. Previous lives aren’t always about being a celebrity or person of importance; many times people can remember day to day lives of ordinary people.
Stories of reincarnation are quite common amongst people from the East, especially the Buddhists and Hindus. It is only recently that we in the Western world have been comfortable talking about it. Much of the fiction and legends of Greco-Roman society discusses the journey of the soul through different lives. The Gnostic writings reflect this. It was only after 500 AD that the Christian Church has separated itself from this belief.
The current research supports the claims of people who remember past lives.
There is the case of Shati Devi, born in Delhi in the 1920’s When she was around seven years old, she revealed to here parents that she had previously lived in Muttra. As she grew older, she remembered more details including information of about a husband and three children. A few years later a man came to her home to discuss a business matter. She immediately recognized him as a relative of her husband’s. The man revealed that he was from Muttra, her previous hometown. He also stated that his cousin had lost his wife around the time Shati was born. She eventually went to visit Muttra where she recognized her husband and the two older children.
