Reincarnation also called as rebirth is a philosophical concept that an aspect of a living being starts a new life in a different physical body after every biological death. Some may insist that it’s real and that stories like the following are proof of its existence, while others insist that it’s all a bunch of nonsense.
Whatever you believe, these stories are certainly creepy enough… but does that mean reincarnation really exists? Read and decide for yourself:
1. James Leininger remembers his past life as a WWII fighter pilot
8 year old James Leininger of Louisiana began talking about aviation at the age of 2 years old. Though his parents knew nothing about the subject, they were amazed by his display of extensive knowledge about planes. Their amazement turned to alarm when James started having nightmares about being shot down by a plane with a red sun on it – a Japanese plane. The boy went on to talk about being a lieutenant called James Huston from World War 2, who is killed in Iwo Jima more than 50 years ago. Ok…
James in the past life and James in current life. Coincidence much? Anyways, later on, James told his parents that he had flown a plane called the Corsair from a boat called the Natoma. When James’ father decided to do some research, true enough he later discovered that there actually had been a small escort carrier called the Natoma Bay, which had been in the Battle of Iwo Jima. And that there had been a pilot called James Huston and his plane was hit in the engine by Japanese fire on March 3, 1945. According to Jim Tucker, a psychologist in University of Virginia, Huston’s plane crashed exactly the way that young James had described. So, it is still a coincidence?
2. Barbro Karlen’s past life as Anne Frank
Anne Frank was born in 1929 and died in 1945. Less than 9 years later, she was reborn as Barbro Karlén. So who is Anne Frank? She was a Jewish teenager who went into hiding during the World War 2 Holocaust, journaling her experiences in the renowned work “The Diary of Anne Frank” and her work had gone on to be read by millions. Fleeing the Nazi persecution of Jews, Anne’s family moved to Amsterdam and went into hiding for two years. During that period of time, Anne wrote about her experiences and wishes. She died at the age of 15 when her family and herself were found and sent to concentration camps. Barbro was an accomplished writer and was considered a child prodigy in her home country of Sweden. By the age of 16, she already had 11 books published. Is it just coincidence again?
Barbro began to have memories of her past life when she was young and she believed that her name was Anne Frank. Of course, Barbro’s parents as Christian thought that the details she shared were simple fantasies and didn’t take her words seriously. Despite that, Barbro, through her memory alone, led her parents to the preserved hiding place of Anne and her family. She even pointed out landmarks and features of the house, which the curator confirmed, including a blank wall on which photographs were missing. Anyone having goosebumps here???
3. Taranjit Singh
Up next is Taranjit Singh, a 6 year old boy who had been claiming that his real name was Satnam Singh since the age of 2. Taranjit who lives in Alluna Miana village in India also claimed that he was born in Chakkchela village in Jalandhar, roughly about 60 kilometers away from the village he stayed. He even recalled that he was a student of Class 9 at the time of his death. Taranjit described that a man on a scooter had collided with Satnam and killed him on 10th September 1992. The books he was carrying on that day were soaked in his blood and he had 30 rupees in his wallet. The story was so odd but detailed that it made Ranjit, Taranjit’s father decided to take matters into his own hands. So all of you are curious about the outcome right?
A teacher in Jalandhar clarified that Satnam Singh really had died in an accident and the boy’s father was named as Jeet Singh. Ranjit made an effort to reach out to Satnam’ family to confirm about the blood-soaked books and the rupee details. In the end, both families decided to meet face to face, and Taranjit was able to identify Satnam in photos correctly. Vikram Raj Chauhan, a forensic scientist read about Taranjit news in the newspaper and further investigation was made. He took the samples of Satnam’s handwriting and compared it with Taranjit’s. What’s truly amazing was, both handwritings were near-match even though Taranjit “was not accustomed to writing”. Someone please tell me this isn’t real…
