I READ THE BOOK AND SAW THE MIVIE A LONG TIME AGO. CAN PEOPLE REALLY BE
HYPNOTIZED INTO REMEMBERING PAST LIVES AND EVENTS? HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP
ME WITH THIS
Years ago in the mid 1970's, when i was in college, i was told how one could regress.
this woman actually regressed, and she laid on the floor and was told to concentrate and let herself feel like her arms and legs were growing like branches of a tree.
that was the start.
she actually had a regression moment. she saw herself as a woman in the 1800's who fell off a carriage or wagon and got killed.
that was a spooky story of what or who she was in past life/lives.
Yes. They can even be hypnotised to remember things that have never happened.
A few years ago someone did an experiment to see if they could get volunteers to "remember" under hypnosis certain perdetermine events.

When you are died you are died. No coming back.
Dreams mean nothing.
Lose the CAPS.
>>When you are dead you are dead. No coming back.<<
You can't prove this. I happen to agree with you, but that's because the evidence is in favor of it. No one has ever been able to prove that they lived before. The key idea of "Peter Proud" is that he is the first person who remembers a life that's recent enough to be proved. People who claim to remember past lives always dream up something in the distant past that can't be verified.
In the story, Peter Proud's previous life is so recent that the people he remembers are still alive. Therefore, he could have been corroborated.
>>Dreams mean nothing. <<
The overwhelming majority of psychologists and psychiatrists would disagree with you. Don't be so sure of what you can't prove.
It seems I have read this exact same post before somewhere. Hmmmmshare
I will wait for some physical evidence that it is even possible before I believe some yahoo was a prince in a previous life. Why are they always great people in former lives and not peasants? You would think the latter would be more prevalent.
As for dreams I am not sure what the majority of psychologists and psychiatrists believe or if a survey was taken. But since those are not hard sciences I don't care.
What dreams are is a working out of the day's events and preparation for future events. Experiments have been done with rats and cats were the mechanism that paralysis the body during sleep is turned off. This allowed the scientist to observe what the animal is doing in its dream. The rats scavenged for food and the cats hunted. Skills the animal needs for success.
Actually I believe that there've been many cases where people have claimed to live past lives as "simple folk" - such stories might not be as interesting to film makers, however.share
If you're interested in this sort of thing, The Search for Bridey Murphy, by Morey Bernstein, 1956, is a fascinating read. Told in a sort of documentary style, it's easily as entertaining as The Reincarnation of Peter Proud (the book, I mean)share
Lose the CAPS? Lose the poor grammar.share
I was taken on a past-life regression once, and apparently I was someone named Shirley Maclaine.share
