I would like to give some information to people seeking to try and remember past lives. The two resources that helped me were books: "Mirrors of Time" by Dr. Brian Weiss (CD included) and "Practical Guide to Past Lives" by Richard Webster. Both books are valuable tools, and I have been able to use both successfully. First time I used Weiss' CD I actually had a vision of a woman in ancient Rome. Later, using one of the techniques mentioned by Webster, I was able to remember more about the Roman lady's life. Truly amazing. Try it!

I have been interested in the subject of reincarnation for a long time. Personally, I think it makes sense even though my religion officially rejects it. I have had weird memories since I was about five or six years old, and some of the stuff I remember my mom thinks is strange (considering my age). I remember my birth into this world, as well as being inside my mother's womb and hearing outside voices (people talking). Later, I have explored the idea of reincarnation through meditation and books, and was successful in remembering snippets of what seems to be past lives. Memories came by clear visions as well as, what I refer to, "sensing." I hope to be able to experience more of past lives, as the whole matter is fascinating.

This is an excellent website for those interested in knowing more about reincarnation. We must congratulate Carol for displaying the courage to challenge traditional beliefs when her own search for truth revealed something different. I have read her article Reincarnation and the Bible. It is indeed a scholarly analysis of what the Bible says about reincarnation. The videos on the site are also very interesting. The historical overview is a short but comprehensive narration of what people in ancient world thought about reincarnation.
The site also has many useful links to sites which deal with children’s past life memories and past life regression. The information on this site will certainly go a long way in removing misconceptions about reincarnation and bring people of different faiths together paving way for religious tolerance and harmony. Being a highly qualified person Carol’s words will certainly be taken seriously by visitors.

I'm amazed and encouraged to know that someone from your traditional religious background could have such a dramatic change in her worldview in midlife -- and then go on to help others who are struggling with traditional religious explanations of life. Namaste!

Wonderful website, Carol! I have read a few of the books by your featured researchers and learned a lot from them and other sources... to where I have basically no doubt that reincarnation happens. However, I don't assume that it is automatic or "required," as some of the researchers say.
I do think the orthodox Christian opposition to reincarnation is based on the core of atonement and salvation theology, much of which was built up and solidified after the writing of the New Testament. Further, the challenge presented by new research on reincarnation will add to other challenges growing in recent decades to standard judgment/grace theology which tends to include eternal punishment. In other words, this all is important stuff, and I appreciate your and others' help on the track of learning we are on culturally.
One additional resource may be an additional help and support, though it does not directly deal with reincarnation, but NT-era views of resurrection and the afterlife. It is "Resurrection Reconsidered" by Gregory J. Riley.
