I am curious if others have met people who openly talk about past lives - either strangers, acquaintances or peers: On my flight home Saturday night from Georgia, I sat next to a woman who was at the College Art Association conference. I never saw her at the conference -but she asked me if I had attended when I sat down. Of course I had, I cringed because I wanted to finish reading Brian Wiess's new book on reincarnation and progression. I tried to hide the cover from her view -thinking OK she is a university professor ---and I immediately ran for the reincarnation closet. I was able to read a few pages here and there without her noticing. Then she looked over and tapped the book and said "What's this? I immediately went to the back of the book and pointed to Brian Weiss's credentials and hypnotherapy work. Cringing inside. She looked at me and said -"Ya know -I did some regression work with a woman in Berkeley years ago. She was a psychologist and ended up writing a book about this stuff. In my sessions I remembered the future too. Well -of course I was taken aback. I asked her who the woman was..she hesitated then said -Oh yes...Helen Wambach Ph.D. I nearly fell out of my seat! She was the author of Reliving Past Lives - The Evidence Under Hypnosis printed in 1978. She is the one that broke the ground work for the rest of us. Well of course we talked about everything we could, her past lives and future lives. Then she went into concentric time and the Mayan Indian calender. There was a man from India sitting next to me on my left -he kept looking at us and smiling - I could feel his approval. All I could think of at the time - besides the conversation -was how many people DO believe -and DO have experiences and don't talk about it. My trip was laced with wonderful conversations with Angela and her "case" - research documentation and then the flight home with Maya -yes that was the woman's name. I felt blessed in so many ways.
