past life regression test – Old Souls:
All across the globe, small children spontaneously speak of previous lives, beg to be taken “home,” pine for mothers and husbands and mistresses from another life, and know things that there seems to be no normal way for them to know. From the moment these children can talk, they speak of people and events from the past — not vague stories of centuries ago, but details of specific, identifiable individuals who may have died just months, weeks, or even hours before the birth of the child in question.
For thirty-seven years, Dr. Ian Stevenson has traveled the world from Lebanon to suburban Virginia investigating and documenting more than two thousand of these past life memory cases. Now, his essentially unknown work is being brought to the mainstream by Tom Shroder, the first journalist to have the privilege of accompanying Dr. Stevenson in his fieldwork. Shroder follows Stevenson into the lives of children and families touched by this phenomenon, changing from skeptic to believer as he comes face-to-face with concrete evidence he cannot discount in this spellbinding and true story.
As our understanding and awareness of who and what we are advances through the grueling gauntlet of scientific process, we continually face a debilitating dilemma: we must simultaneously question everything and at the same time proceed as if we know something. As a result we continually battle ourselves, questioning the ground on which we stand while using that same ground to prove our questions irrelevant. It’s a gift, then, when a writer emerges who will grapple with any of these battles at the event horizon between science and conjecture and take himself wholly into the fray, reporting back to us the subtle forces at work within the storm and how those forces play upon him and the subject he explores.
In Old Souls, journalist Tom Shroder manages this feat and hands us a volume that is considerable and engaging. Not only do we explore the work of a brave and committed researcher on the slippery slope of reincarnation, we are also treated to a remarkable tour of worlds foreign to us: human existence in post-war Beirut and in the depths of poverty in India. Through the entire journey, Mr. Shroder keeps the primary question lively, carrying the reader through to a closing bit of personal memoir that brilliantly ties the book together into a provocative whole.
Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, you can’t help but appreciate Mr. Shroder’s disciplined, scrupulously fair, and soul-searching explication. Along the way, we learn immensely about the process as it is revealed and a great deal about exploration itself. The book works on many levels, and readers will benefit from them all. –Donald A.

Building Strong States, Economies & Societies in the Western Balkans – IMG 8313
President Josipovic, distinguished guests, thank you for inviting me to speak to you this morning as part of this important forum for discussing Southeastern Europe. I am delighted to be back in the beautiful city of Dubrovnik. I am pleased to be joined here by Congressmen Gallegly, Green and Long as well as so many prime ministers and foreign ministers from across Europe and the Mediterranean region.
I arrived last night from Paris, where I accompanied Secretary Clinton to the third meeting of the Friends of the Syrian People. She asked me to send her warmest regards to all her counterparts here, and to carry a strong message of support from the United States for your efforts to advance stability, democracy and prosperity in this region.
As you all know – particularly those who were also in Paris yesterday – we are facing a world filled with complex challenges. In addition to Syria, we are preparing for transition in Afghanistan, working to hold Iran accountable to its international commitments, assisting ongoing reform efforts across North Africa, and wrestling with a global financial crisis. This doesn’t lessen U.S. interest in the Balkans, a part of the world where we have invested so much and have so many friends and interests. Indeed, this weekend’s summit provides a welcome opportunity to reaffirm American commitment to ensuring the full integration of this region into Europe. However, it does mean that regional leaders will have to do even more to ensure that the Balkans do not fall behind or off the radar screens. We want strong, stable, democratic and prosperous partners who can help us address these global challenges. But that means overcoming the divisions, narrow nationalism, and inflexible economies that have no place in the 21st century.
I first attended this summit in July 2009, along with then Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg. In the three years since then, the countries of Southeastern Europe have made tangible progress in a number of key areas. Croatia completed its membership negotiations with the European Union. We are delighted that Croatia will become the EU’s newest member next year and hope for timely ratification by all EU members before July 2013. Serbia and Montenegro have become EU candidate countries. Montenegro, only six years after obtaining independence, was just invited to begin EU accession negotiations, and has joined NATO’s Membership Action Plan. Bosnia and Herzegovina also was invited to join MAP, and needs only to register defense property under state ownership in order to activate its membership. NATO reaffirmed at the Chicago Summit that Macedonia can join the Alliance as soon as its name dispute is resolved. And Secretary Clinton reaffirmed her conviction that NATO’s door must remain open to those aspirants, including several who are represented here this morning, who make the needed reforms and are in a position to contribute to our common security.
Another indicator of progress is the extent to which Balkan countries have joined with our EU and NATO partners to become providers rather than consumers of security. Albania, Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia and Montenegro all have troops serving alongside American and European soldiers in Afghanistan. Last fall, a small group of Adriatic Charter country trainers deployed together – exhibiting a degree of military-to-military cooperation that would have been unimaginable a decade ago. And we appreciate these countries’ commitments to help sustain the Afghan National Security Forces after NATO concludes its combat mission in 2014.
I also want to acknowledge the progress made between Kosovo and Serbia. While much more needs to be done, the very fact that the two countries began sitting down together across a negotiating table is itself a step toward the recognition that the only way forward is reconciliation. Agreement was reached on important issues such as cross-border freedom of movement, a customs stamp, recognition of university diplomas, and a range of other issues. We look forward to full implementation of these agreements.
More work needed
While we applaud the considerable efforts across the region to overcome past enmity and reform dysfunctional institutions, we have also seen disappointing setbacks and frustrating intransigence. Clearly more must be done before the whole of Southeastern Europe can be considered fully integrated into the Euro-Atlantic community. Let me be frank about how the United States views the current challenges and opportunities in the countries of the region.
Croatia has become a true leader in the region, as its rapid political reform process led to early membership in Euro-Atlantic institutions. Croatia’s success demonstrates the possibility of progress, albeit with hard work and sacrifice, to advance the interests of its citizens. As Secretary Clinton said last June following the completion
Coprolite shield cabochon necklace
Just for chuckles, I went to see if anyone claims metaphysical properties for coiprolites. Sure enough, several sites claim that coprolite "aids memory. Enhances intelligence, mental stability. Is also used for past life regressions because of its inherent link with the past. Increases energy. Particularly useful in calming fears. Calms anxiety and basic fears about survival. -Strong physical healer and energy energizer. ."
Does this mean that the term shit-for-brains was a compliment all along?
I figured that, if anything, maybe it just helps keep you regular. :-)
past life regression test
You’ve got to hand it to the renowned celebrity psychic Sylvia Browne–she gives it straight from the gut and really doesn’t give a hoot whether you believe her. As a result, it’s hard to not be captivated and convinced by her firm belief in the afterlife, or in this case, the beforelife. Her writing is most riveting when she uses her storytelling voice, relating dialogue from client sessions that include past-life stories. In fact, she opens the book with a scene in which she follows the small clues offered by an agoraphobic to help him reveal that a past-life poisoning (when he was an Aztec ruler) had been crippling his present life. Throughout the book, Brown continues to use real-life client stories to show how past-life baggage can weigh down a present life. The final chapters offer how-to lessons on conducting your own past-life regression and healing sessions. Be warned: Browne’s writing sometimes sounds like the channeled writing that was popular in the late 1980’s: “The miraculous gift of eternity means that the singular essence that is you will always, always exist.” But readers may forgive her these lapses, as she clearly writes from heartfelt convictions rather than a stylized formula. –Gail Hudson
