3 Children Whose Stories Support the Case for Reincarnation

Past-life recognition in children is being studied extensively by various scientists and psychiatrists around the world to prove the survival of consciousness beyond the physical realm. Reincarnation research was advanced by Dr. Ian Stevenson in the 1960’s, who interviewed thousands of people who had recollections of past lives. Dr. Stevenson discovered that recollection of past lives by children was much more common than many expected and he developed categories to help screen for cases worthy of further study. Dr. Jim B. Tucker, colleague of the late Dr. Stevenson and an associate psychiatry professor at the University of Virgina Medical Center’s Division of Perceptual Studies, has compiled over 2500 case studies of reincarnation, which document young children recollecting their previous lives. In addition to recalling memories of past lives, people may also carry over physical characteristics from one body to the next, and Dr. Tucker notes that about 20% of the children with whom he’s worked also recollect the time and space where they were between death and reincarnation into a new life. The three examples below are some of the most staggering stories that might make you question if the soul and human consciousness continue to survive beyond death and are reincarnated to live many more lives. JAMES LEININGER The story of James Leininger is truly stunning. Since birth, James was obsessed with airplanes and as a young child started having nightmares about flying, weapons, and a plane accident. Shortly after the nightmares started, James stared to recall his previous life as a fighter pilot. Eventually, James was able to share more details about his past life with his parents, such as: the name of the pilot, James M. Huston Jr.; the Navy ship on which he served, the Natoma; his co-pilot’s name; and the fact that he was shot down at Iwo Jima. With just a little effort, James’ father was able to track down Huston’s co-pilot Jack Larson and Huston’s living sister. From that point forth, the boy was able to recall events and people from Huston’s life with such clarity, that there was no reason for his family and Huston’s sister not to believe him. Check out the short video below, and you will also find it difficult to doubt that James Leininger is in fact pilot James M. Huston Jr. reincarnated. EDWARD AUSTRIAN Edward Austrian is another case of possible reincarnation. Since very early in his life, Edward had a phobia of dark, drizzly, damp weather and often became ill with throat problems. What made the latter strange is how Edward identified with his throat illnesses, calling it his “shot”. By the time he was...

6 Stories That Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity

Fun fact: If people were actually as bad as we say they are, civilization could not exist. So while the headlines are dominated by our weekly mass shootings, the reality is that day to day, we common folk make little sacrifices for each other and let insults slide and feel bad when we act like douchebags. Once the riot is over, cops and rioters will both stand and make small talk in the same line at Burger King. Via Chicago Tribune “If anyone disagrees with this place having the best chicken nuggets, I will change your mind with pepper spray.” We have a whole thread on our forum where we collect little bits to restore your faith in humanity, and I check on it every once in a while to remind myself why I shouldn’t utter the magic world-ending incantation that old wizard taught me years ago. So let’s sit back and celebrate … #6. Regular Folks Risking Their Asses to Stop Hatred Photos.com In the wake of a terrorist attack in Egypt that left 21 minority Christians dead at the hands of radical Muslims, there was fear throughout the country that any Christian gathering was a target. So when Christmas Eve came just a few days later, Christians left their houses for church services feeling like there was a bull’s-eye on their back. And sure enough, what they found when they arrived at their Christmas Eve services was a mob of Muslims waiting for them. The mob was there to deliver a very clear message: “If the terrorists want to kill you, they’ll have to kill us, too.” They were there to act as human shields. Via Ahram.org This means they also missed the A Christmas Story marathon on cable. In case you were wondering “Why would Christians even risk living in the Middle East in the first place?” you might be surprised to find out that Egypt is 10 percent Christian — Christians and Muslims eat at the same restaurants and go see the same movies, and by God, they’ve got each others’ backs when shit gets serious. Even in Iran, both Christianity and Judaism are legal and protected in their constitution. I guess what I’m trying to say is, none of this is as simple as the people with suits and podiums want you to believe. ahramonline The signs in these people’s hands prove it. Let’s try an even more awesome example. In the war-ravaged African nation of Liberia, it’s the Muslims who are the minority in a nation that is overwhelmingly Christian. They were in the middle of two consecutive decades of civil war, where...

Quote of the Day: “A human being is part of the whole called by us universe….

Via http://discoverynews.tumblr.com/post/22052410870/einstein “A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” -Albert...

Heroic Trucker Pulls Grandma, Little Girl From Flaming Wreckage, Saves Their Lives.

A woman and her 1-year-old granddaughter are alive today thanks to David Fredericksen, a heroic truck driver who didn’t hesitate to leave the safety of his own cab and run toward the wreckage of a car being rapidly consumed by flames. Fredericksen’s dashcam recorded the inspiring act, as the driver pulled up to the burning car and briefly weighed his options with a passenger in his truck on Aug. 11. “That guy is dead, dude!” exclaims the unnamed passenger, as Fredericksen asks, “Want to see if we can get them out of the car?” The passenger responds, “NO! What are you going to do?!” To which Fredericksen selflessly offers, “I’ve got a fire extinguisher.” The trucker then hops out of his cab, fire extinguisher in hand, and heads toward the growing inferno. Inspired by his action, other bystanders also leave their own cars to help in the rescue: In a post accompanying the video on YouTube, Fredericksen’s son said the incident occurred on Interstate 10 near Biloxi, Mississippi, after the car T-boned a semi-truck’s fuel tank. The car doors were jammed shut, trapping the driver and her granddaughter in the vehicle. His son writes: Thankfully my father had the presence of mind, bravery, and forethought of carrying a fire extinguisher, to be the first person on scene to risk his own life in order to possibly save another and to inspire others and lead them into taking action. Everyone involved in the rescue effort is a hero in my books. The police and fire department responded within minutes of the accident and also deserve praise. Remember to treat truck drivers well as they are often the first responders in automobile accidents. “We noticed there was a lady in the front, kicking the front seat – the door, trying to get out, and when we opened the door I noticed a 1-year-old little girl in the back seat,” Fredericksen told ABC News, recounting the scene. “She was pretty happy when I grabbed her out of there.” In a separate interview with Jalopnik, the trucker said he didn’t feel his actions were particularly heroic. “Really what I feel is when I first got out of the truck, I was praying that they wouldn’t be dead,” he said. “I just wanted to put the fire out, but when I saw they were alive, I was like ‘SWEET!'” He said the passenger who was with him in the truck ended up saving the toddler in the car’s backseat. The little girl, who he described as “the cutest little thing,” was “hugging him so tight she was choking him,” he said. Remarkably, aside from...
