I am going to visit my Tomb!

reincarnation stories

Konrad’s tomb at the Cologne Cathedral

Here is a reincarnation story that might be a classic!  I am actually going to visit my tomb in Cologne’s Cathedral on August 1st during my family vacation to Europe.  I don’t think there are many people who can say such a thing.

It all started last winter when my wife was reviewing ideas for our annual summer vacation.  She had her heart set on going to Europe and I saw an immediate opportunity to visit some of my past lives’ landmarks.  With only a limited 12 days to spend, she wanted to concentrate on London, Paris and Salzburg.  I wanted to visit the tomb of Konrad Von Hochstaden in Cologne and Nicholas Des Fours’ castle in Czechoslovakia. For those of you who are married, you know that marriage is always a matter of negotiation, so I had to settle for one day in Cologne.  Konrad von Hochstaden or Nicholas never would have settled, so I like to think that I am making progress as a soul.

I really do not know what to expect when I visit a body that I used to reside in.  Will there be some kind of spontaneous memory? Or some kind of physical reaction?  Or will there be no reaction, because it is said that after souls leave their bodies upon death, they have no real interest in their now useless body.  The body that I will be visiting has not been used since 1261, so I am really not expecting a paranormal event, but you never know.  I am not quite sure what I will do at the tomb; perhaps leave a flower and a copy of my book there.  I definitely will have Karol take a picture of my beside it.

Speaking of past life memories, last week I spoke at a Hypno regression demonstration hosted by Jeremiah Wolfe of Columbus Ohio.  Jeremiah is a hypno-therapist who specializes in past life regression.  In my book, Brenda Posani hypno-regressed me to the time of my WW2 life as Otto.  I had really hoped to see images of that past life during that session, but that did not happen.  During Jeremiah’s event, he had a segment where he hypno-regressed everyone attending the seminar at the same time.  Before going under, I asked Spirit if he/she would reveal some scenes from my Konrad life as I was going to Cologne shortly.  During the exercise, I was so happy to actually see images!  First was a cartoonish image of an Arch Bishop decked out in “all of his” splendor.  When I mentally asked who that was, the word Konrad was written out in cursive.  I then was rewarded with a vision of the dark inside of a large wooden building.  Outside was a log palisade wall that was there for defensive purposes.  I then saw a medieval soldier in chain mail and armor working on the wall.  I later learned that I was viewing the scene through Konrad’s eyes as he was visiting the barracks of his troops.  I thought the experience was beyond cool!  I was really appreciative of finally seeing my past.  When I get back, I will be sure to describe the adventure of visiting “my” Cathedral.

Can you meet your past life personalities? I did!

Reincarnated past lives

 

Here is a reincarnation story where my past lives intersect with my current one.

The first line of my book repeated the famous quote by J. Haldane who said “Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.” This post covers a topic that is a great example of what Haldane could be talking about.  To appreciate this, you must be open to the idea that you lived other lives than the one you are living currently. The idea of reincarnation is a stretch for most people, but if you can go along with that concept, I can show you something that I have actually experienced which has to be considered “mind blowing”. To demonstrate this, we must build upon the reincarnation concept.  If one experiences many lives as you go through time, it’s your spirit or consciousness which transitions between bodies.  There must be a time and place that your spirit or consciousness exist in when it transitions from a dead body to a new one.  We can call that in between place “heaven” or the “spirit world”.  It’s a place that you can actually interact with mentally, if you are a psychic or have the ability to achieve astral projection.

 

The famous Robert A. Monroe was one of the pioneers of out of body travelling or astral projection.  He wrote three classic books about the topic and of his travels in the non-physical world.  All of his books are full of wonder, but one quirky situation always captured my attention.  There were at least three times that he appeared to encounter himself face to face when traveling in a past time.  Once he witnessed his spirit leaving his body after his death in an ancient battle.  Another time, a future version of himself rescued his astral projected self from a scary situation after he left his body during his current life.  Another time, he had conversations with the personalities he used to be all in one encounter.  When I read these accounts, I was incredulous which is saying a lot after the supernatural events I experienced. (At that point of my life, I had received psychic abilities and was in regular communication with the spirits on the other side. )How can one possible encounter yourself?  That sounds impossible!  However, chapter 16 of “My Journey down the Reincarnation Highway” explains how time does not exist in the spirit world, that place where our consciousness exists between incarnations.  I realize that this is a concept that few people would be able to wrap their heads around, but quantum physics is already verifying this amazing concept.

 

So if there is no time in the spirit world, then everything exists at one, past, present and future.  If that is the case, then it is quite possible to encounter a prior version of your consciousness on the “other side”. And that is exactly what happened to Robert Monroe.  However, I myself have experienced meeting prior versions of myself. It happened in a psychic reading with my psychic trainer Brenda Posani.  Brenda is a gifted psychic who can see, hear and feel messages from the other side.  Brenda was one of the three psychics who helped me learn about nine of my prior lives or “personalities”. In two of those lives, I followed a pattern of being brutal German noblemen (I was actually able to find their existence and stories in German history).  Both of these prior lives were of medieval warriors of an extremely aggressive nature. Surprisingly, both of them showed up at one of my psychic readings with Brenda.  The first, Nicholas Des Fours, appeared to Brenda as he would be just coming off the battlefield.  His black beard was soaked the blood of those he had just slain.  For the first time ever, I saw that Brenda was freaked out encountering a spirit. I was not troubled by his spirit and actually asked him some questions. I was particularly interested in him as his actions put a big karmic debt on his successor incarnations (me included).I found that he treated me fraternally (if you will) and complimented me that “I was doing pretty well in this life”.  The other personality was of the military arch bishop Konrad Von Hochstaden.  I did not get an opportunity to question him, but Konrad was known for some creepy vices and Brenda was picking up those vibes.  At the end of this session, a more peaceful part of my soul also showed up, the Abbot Thaddeus who lived in the 1500s.  It was an amazing experience to be visited by three different versions of myself! Brenda told me that I would be able to speak with all nine of personalities that I discovered at a future date.  All I can say is that the Twilight Zone is real for me and I just shared another episode of it with you.

Today’s topic is about the local impact of one of my reincarnation stories without getting into past life regression or past life regression therapy (my apologies to Dr Brian Weiss). In my book, I write about a life-long obsession with World War 2 despite the fact that I never served in the military in this life. My knowledge (through reading)of infantry subjects is so extensive that anytime I talk to a serviceman or a veteran, they automatically think that I once served and inevitably they ask me what my unit was. A few doors down from me, one of the moms on my street served in the Gulf War when she was younger. She is very friendly, extremely funny and vivacious. She is also a very serious Christian. When we got into a conversation about her service time, she fell in the same trap as the other vets and she actually refused to believe that I never served. After trying to convince her of this, I took the risk of telling her the truth that I was a reincarnated German soldier. She of course thought I was really pulling her leg, especially when I told her that I was writing a book about my prior lives. She did not believe me until I showed her the e-mail from my publisher that awarded my book “Editor’s choice”. The neighbor, “Suzy”, now knew that I was serious. She told me she would read my book if I would then read one of her bible study books. I knew that she was doing her Christian duty, which I respect. But she had no idea that I had stepped into a supernatural twilight zone for 3 years and the mere thought that reading one bible study book was going to reverse the impact of my 3 year experience was incredible. I told her that I appreciated the gesture, but for me, it was a matter of been there, done that. After all, as I served lives as an Abbot of a monastery and as a Arch Bishop Konrad Von Hochstaden, I had already “punched” my ticket as a high level Christian; it was my time for other ways. Suzy wasn’t the only one to offer me the “book” exchange. My sister-in-law Joyce is a lovely person who is a committed born again Christian. She was initially delighted that I found God, but she really can’t get her head wrapped around the God that I found. Despite assuring her that it’s actually the same one she prays to, she made the same offer Suzy did. Sorry Joyce, thank you for your offer, but been there, done that. The whole situation gives me an understanding of what gay men must go through with well meaning relatives. “If only we can fix Todd up one time with that beautiful Rachael, that would change the path he is on!” But it’s not going to work with Todd because Rachael is not his path in life. It’s the same with me; organized religion is not the path I am taking now. But no harm, because in the end, all of our paths will eventually meet up at the same destination. In some future life, Suzy and Joyce will travel on another path just to see what it is like. .
