Talk about a coincidence….
I recently happened to find this book: The Search for Bridey Murphy at our local library, in the “free” bin. Thought it might be worth a read. It was.
And this week’s OSI prompt: reincarnation certainly was a timely one considering that I just finished the book, a couple of days ago.
My belief in reincarnation is long-term and absolute. I have no doubt that people can live more than one life. The likelihood of it happening on a regular basis, that I’m not sure of. But I do believe it is possible.
I have also been fascinated for many years, by the (largely untapped) power of hypnotism. I have been hypnotised on numerous occasions, by a professional hypnotist/doctor and also having utilized self-hypnosis. An aid to stress-relief in my case and yes, it did help significantly.
Bridey Murphy is the incarnation of a woman who was born in 18th century Ireland. The book’s author: Morey Bernstein was a businessman/avid (albeit self-proclaimed amateur) hypnotist who hypnotised (on several occasions) a woman named Ruth Simmons (not her real name) in Colorado during the 1950’s.
During the time that Ruth Simmons was under a deep trance and had been age-regressed to a time before her current lifetime, she recalled and told in detail, a story of living in Ireland during the early 1700’s to mid 1800’s.
Details of the story are hard to dispute. Many times the researchers and media who followed up the story in Ireland were astonished by the information that Ruth had provided. At first glance, it often it seemed that historic details did not match up with what Ruth had said during her hypnotic trances. But upon further investigation, it became clear that Ruth knew a great deal about living at this time in rural and urban Ireland.Many of the details would have been very hard to uncover, unless the person had actually lived during that earlier time.
If you are interested in the subject of reincarnation and/or age-regression and hypnosis, this is definitely a book worth the time. Let me know if you do read this book or have already. I’d like to know if you also were left to believe that Bridey Murphy did indeed exist and was reincarnated through Ruth Simmons.
Time after time…do you believe?
PS: On a less serious note, I wish that prices for bestsellers were being reincarnated too, based on this book! 😉
