Walter Semkiw, MD, is founder and president of the Institute for the Integration of Science, Intuition, and Spirit. He is author of Born Again, Return of the Revolutionaries: The Case for Reincarnation and Soul Groups Reunited, and Origin of the Soul and the Purpose of Reincarnation.
Here he describes the pioneering research of Dr. Ian Stevenson at the University of Virginia who established the discipline of reincarnation research by focusing on investigations of young children who remember past lives. He points out that Stevenson and his colleagues have investigated over 2,500 cases of the reincarnation type. About half of these are considered “solved” in that a prior lifetime was identified based upon information provided by the child. Most of these cases are from countries where reincarnation is an accepted concept. He argues that, from these cases, we can infer how reincarnation works. In many cases, the families associated with the prior personality accept such children as the reincarnations of their deceased loved ones.
