Other Times, Other Me's: Reincarnation - Fact or Fiction?

Jacqueline Hacsi

Other Times, Other Me's: Reincarnation - Fact or Fiction? by Jacqueline HacsiWhen the craziness started, when I seemed to stop being me and become someone else, I almost always tapped into what seemed to be a past life at a dramatic, crisis moment. I would immediately know what had led up to the crisis and how it would be resolved. Almost all these past life excursions revolved around sexual issues, some of them revolting. For over three years I would suddenly become another "me" and then one morning I managed to slam the door on further exploration and I was never swept out of myself again. Did I "prove" reincarnation or simply prove I was mentally unhinged?
