Those who would challenge the validity of PLT often point to the lack of information which can be empirically validated. Their cry is, “Give us data! Give us names, dates, places!” For this reason, this contribution, in which a careful and methodical follow-up was conducted to validate the data obtained during the regression, is an important study. We would be interested in hearing from other PLT practitioners who have done similar studies and validations.
On February 11, 1942, the U.S. Submarine Shark, on which James Edward Johnston was a crew member, was depth charged and sunk by the Japanese Destroyer Amatsukaze. All hands including James drowned. The spirit that occupied the body of James appears to have reincarnated again on January 19, 1953 in the body of Bruce Kelly.
In hypnosis, Kelly has a clear and vivid recall of a past life as James. Past-life regressionists rarely have the opportunity to research data presented by a client, but James Johnston lived so recently that many of the memories recalled by Bruce Kelly have been authenticated.
Documents from the Civilian Conservation Corps, the United States Navy, and civilian records such as a birth certificate and high school attendance records verify the life of James. In addition, several of James friends and relatives are still alive and have substantiated information recalled by Bruce Kelly while in hypnosis.
