What is Reincarnation?
Reincarnation is a philosophical concept and belief that when we die we eventually come back to life through rebirth, for this reason it is believed our spirit or soul lives on after death and we replace our body with a brand new one. Religions such as Buddhism and Hinduism strongly believe in Reincarnation but there is also evidence that a large of the Worlds population is open to the belief of reincarnation. So is Reincarnation proven to be real? Well yes but it can not be proven 100%, only you can decide that yourself. However I strongly believe Reincarnation is a strong compelling idea that is very real, In this article i will look at 3 cases which point to strong evidence of Reincarnation, I will then add my own conclusive thoughts.

Ways of determining Reincarnation
The most common way of determining Reincarnation is through the recalling of Past Life memories of children. There are many cases where children at the young ages of 2-5 begin speaking of being someone else and may even talk of having different parents, some even say that their home is elsewhere. Whilst this may seem scary these children have shown definite proof and knowledge of real people and places that exist or have existed. This means that spiritual memory does exist to some degree, it is also proof that not all memory comes solely from the brain.
Children have also had strong psychological reactions when returning to the very places where they once lived or when seeing things linked to their previous death especially if the memories were traumatic. Emotions such as strong sadness and fear were present in the body language of children which indicated they were feeling something and that their feeling was not self engineered. These past life experiences also appear in dreams.
There are also other proofs such as birthmarks linked to their previous death, it is thought that some of the children who talk of past lifes also talk of the way they died and when this is proven to be true the marks or injuries of their past life appear in some form on their new body almost like a 'reminder'.
There is also the case of children behaving like adults almost like they are still the personality of the person who lived before. There are also hypnotic regressions where people speak in different foreign languages while in a hypnotized state which only proves that these people once lived elsewhere in a past life, a strong example of Past Life regression is that of 'Jenny Green'.
Gillian Pollock and Jennifer Pollock Case
In Hexham England the Pollock family had a very strong case of reincarnation on the 5th May 1957 when their daughters Jacqueline 6 and Joanna 11 died when a car had knocked them down along with family friend Anthony Layden. This all happened when they were on the way to Church. John and Florence (parents) were horrified, John could only pray and hope his daughters would and could come back.
John Pollock actually believed his wife would conceive twins and against all odds on the 4thOctober 1958 Florence gave birth to two twins (Gillian and Jennifer). The younger of the twins Jennifer had a scar on her forehead down to the bridge of her nose which was very similar to the scar that the deceased Jacqueline had due to her falling off a tricycle when she was two years old. To make things double freaky Jacqueline also had a birthmark on her left hip which Jennifer also has in the same place. Coincidence? No way. Considering Jacqueline and Jennifer were the young ones of both pairs it seemed Jennifer could very well be the reincarnation of Jacqueline.
A gift from above? Very possible. When the twin girls were given two dolls that used to belong to Jacqueline and Joanna they both said "That's Mary and that's Susan", Florence Pollock found it peculiar that they knew the names of the dolls with no knowledge of their names. The family eventually moved away from Hexham but upon returning at a later date to visit one of the twins said "The school is around here that we used to go to and the playground is around the back", this was impossible to know since the twins had never been to this school. It was only Jacqueline or Joanna that would have known about the school or the playground.
Gus Ortega Case
Ron Ortega once witnessed his one and half year old son Gus say something very strange while chaging his diaper, Gus said to his father "When i was your age I used to change your diapers". This was very strange to Ron because his son was only 1 and for him to say that he had at one point changed his dad's diaper could only mean one thing, it meant that Gus had been his age before changing his diapers!
Ron showed Gus some family photos, one of which was a picture of Gus's younger looking grandpa named August. In this picture there were a group of people and when Ron asked Gus to point out which one was grandpa Gus did it with ease. Gus had not seen any pictures of his grandpa prior to this. Gus even identified the place he used to work for in a photo and Gus was also able to point out his Grandpas car as his own, he said "this was my first car", indeed it was his Grandpa August's first car.
Gus also mentioned his sister died but Gus never had a sister, in fact it was his Grandpa who had a sister. Gus mentioned that she was murdered by her husband and again Gus was correct. Gus also slipped something very bizarre when he told his father Ron that he had been given another chance to come back to life. After all the proof the Ortega family is convinced Gus is the reincarnation Grandpa August Ortega.
One of the most popular cases of reincarnation was that of a little boy called James who had a fascination with planes from a very young age who would look at planes like he was doing a pre-flight check. When his mother Andrea said "oh look there's a bomb on the bottom of it" James at his very young age replied "that's not a bomb mum, that's a drop tank", how did this child know about planes so well?
Sometimes James would have nightmares and his mother Andrea would ask what he was dreaming about and James on one occasion replied "airplane crash on fire, little man can't get out" and Andrea replied "who is the little man?" and James replied "me". Having further researched the boys apparent recalled memories James had described a man who had his plane shot down during World War II, when they asked James who shot the plane down he replied "the Japanese!".
James also mentioned taking off from a boat named 'Natoma', this was all looked up, when asked what his name was he said "James". It was later found that there was someone called 'James Huston' who was shot down by the Japanese and he did take off from a boat named Natoma! James also mentioned his flight buddy Jack Larson. Both the Natoma and Jack Larson were proven real. James also talked of James Huston having a Sister named Anne, again Anne was found to be real too and is the sister of James Huston! Anne both shocked and surprised to meet the reincarnation of her brother said herself "the child was convincing and coming up with all these things there is no way in the world he could know".
Apparently when James was younger he also recalled picking his parents, he picked Bruce and Andrea as his parents and even mentioned the place where his parents were honeymooning long before he was born, it was said he picked his parents while they were honeymooning in Hawaii.

My thoughts on Reincarnation?
Having looked at many cases of Reincarnation to me there seems to be at least some truth in it, it is difficult to know whether these memories are due to reincarnated people who remember past lives or that the people having these memories are somewhat connected to the souls of other people who have lived before.
But lets be honest reincarnation is very hard to dismiss when you have lots of proof, these people can recall where they lived and who their past life family members were as well as many other things. A big question is why not of all of us rememeber our past life? Perhaps there is a reason for this? Perhaps we really weren't meant to remember our past life but some of us slip through the net?
Another question may be the consideration that there is something between life and death and some of us wait for a new body, perhaps some of us are choosing a body to be born into even before physical birth. There have been children who spoke of being in another place before being born, some were even attatched to their last life to the point they complained about their current life.
I believe that reincarnation is real but that only certain people get reincarnated, where the other people go, that's up for debate :) I believe there is a stronger possibility of God behind reincarnation, one thing i noticed was the reincarnation of those who died in unjust ways, it is almost like God gave these people another shot at life. If recinarnation is simply a natural process is there something between life and death? Very possible but the truth is you can only find out at the end of your time here. We would be ignorant to think reincarnation can't exist because we have been born already and that means we could have been somewhere else before.
Reincarnation is open to debate because we all love debates, but please do not spam ignorant comments such as reincarnation is that of the devil. Always have an open mind, please respect each and everyone elses comments/opinions. Thanks! :)
