NFT: Netflix's Surviving Death and reincarnation

widmerseyebrow : 1/12/2021 3:47 pm
Anyone else watch this?

I found the episodes on NDE and reincarnation to be pretty fascinating. Particularly the case of James Leininger who, starting at age 2, was seemingly able to recall a past life as a pretty obscure WWII pilot, James Huston Jr.

I'm usually pretty skeptical about paranormal stuff, but it's hard to debunk how the kid was able to recount specific childhood memories as verified by James Huston's living sister unless she was in on it for some reason.

On a side note, I just couldn't buy in to the episodes on "mediumship" at all and the cases from Signs From the Dead and Seeing Dead People were flimsy.
Been binging it

Myself. Have cried a couple of times already. I’m very much a believer in spirituality and have had a number of experiences myself. Laura Lynn-Jackson is the only medium they depicted that’s worth a damn. The other skinny lady and bald gent are just con artists that will claim what they does helps people move on and find happiness when they are just preying on the emotionally vulnerable.

It takes a lot for a person to reach the point of reaching out to a medium because there IS that stigma of “I’m crazy to be doing this.” or “I’m just willingly walking into a scam, dead people can’t talk.” And it’s really sad because these people have reached such an intense point of grieving that they just want to know that their loved when does continue one somewhere that they don’t just simply vanish, and they don’t, because at the end of the day, down to our most scientific element, we are not these vessels. We are the spiritual energy that occupies these vessels, and through these vessels we operate on this plane of consciousness. Once free of these vessels do we have the infinite plane of existence available to us. Death is not an end. It is a continuation.
I will check it out

I used to Astral project often until I saw my younger dead uncle asking me "how are you doing that".😳

Evidence of Reincarnation in Childhood - ( New Window )
Cool subject and reincarnation goes all the way

Back to the times of plato and a revived dead soldier who didn't drink from "the river of unknowing" after his death. There's a village in LL abandon I think where it's accepted that kids usually have memories of past village elders.

I feel about this the same way I do about alien sightings. Do I believe it? Not without evidence, but I want to. As a Buddhist, it's a central tenet.
I agree with the OP

The NDE segment was good, the ones on mediums were not compelling, and I haven't watched the reincarnation segment yet. Can't imagine not having curiosity about this subject, the greatest mystery of our being.. I have read Moody, Kubler-Ross et al but I cannot say I'm convinced. I guess hopeful would be more like it.
For those interested in the nature of consciousness

and its potential influence over matter from a scientific perspective, you might want to check out the book "Real Magic" by Dean Radin. It only lightly touches on the question of whether consciousness survives corporal death, but it's an interesting read. The studies he cites -- and of course they are disputed -- suggest that the influence is real but in most cases very subtle.
