Past Life Case Study: Genghis Khan and the Mongols
Since the 1980s, our past life investigations have led us to conclude that reincarnation is the most reasonable explanation for our startling findings, including dates, little-known customs and practices, and other past life regression specifics that were later verified as legitimate.
How do you access possible past life circumstances? Past life regression with an experienced professional, daily meditation, and past life regression audios are some of the best ways to uncover previous incarnations.
In order to illustrate how we explore reincarnation, what follows are details of Scott’s take on a possible past life or lives.
Scott enjoys reading historical fiction and in September 2009 he was drawn to read about Genghis Khan and the Mongols, who reigned during the Middle Ages. Between October 2009 and late January 2010 he read the 3-part series by Con Iggulden. While reading historical fiction, Scott sometimes has spontaneous, clear visions of people he knows in this life superimposed over the historical characters. Whether you consider it past lives or current life symbolism, that’s up to you.
Soon after he began reading about Genghis Khan, he happened to see an advertisement for a Genghis Khan exhibit that was to be for a limited time at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, which is about a mile away from his home in Denver.
Scott visited the exhibit in mid January 2009 and spent about 2 hours viewing and reading about the clothing they wore, unique customs and habits, a reconstructed ger (roundish tepee-like dwelling), armor, weapons, and a lot more.
When riding the escalator to the exhibit rooms in the museum, Scott felt an astonishingly sharp pain in his left leg just below the knee (he didn’t recall ever having such pain in that area of his leg and has no related injuries), then, while in the exhibit as he was walking by a video reenactment of a Mongolian battle, one of the characters took a blow to his lower leg before falling. Scott contemplated the possibility of either tapping into the energy of a Mongol warrior, or even living a past life as one.
Over the past year Scott has had periodic visions of wearing a “court-jester” type of boot that curves up 90 degrees at the toe, but they were more practical instead of flamboyant and he didn’t know from what culture they could have been. Then he learned, at the exhibit, that the Mongolians wore that very same type of boot. Was he “channeling” the soul of a former Mongol, or did he live one or more lives as one?
Below are some interesting facts he learned at the Genghis Khan exhibit, along with his related, possible past life insights:
*Denver is home to the largest Mongolian population outside of Mongolia (3500+-).
*Denver has about the same altitude and climate as the capital of Mongolia (although Mongolian winters are more harsh).
*Denver and the capital of Mongolia are both bordered by mountains.
*The Mongols, during the time of Genghis Khan, were in perpetual migration. They disliked staying in one place for too long (Scott likes to move around and has lived in several different areas of the U.S.). They also had the most mobile army in the world at that time due to the fact that they were all on horseback.
*Scott viewed a tobacco pipe in a display case and saw, in his mind’s eye, his grandfather as a Mongol man smoking it. While reading about Genghis Khan, he also had flashes of one of his sisters as a male warrior of an opposing tribe, his grandmother as a fellow male warrior, and his father as a male nephew or younger brother who was interested in shamanism, the arts, civic structure, and writing, more than battle. In addition, he envisioned an additional relative as an underworld boss of one of the larger cities in the Chin Dynasty, who had formed a secret partnership with Genghis Khan.
*A lively part of the exhibit (which was housed in several large museum rooms) was a walkway between two approximately 8’X8’ screens depicting Mongolian battle scenes, including audio. Being in a meditative state while at the exhibit, this experience was mind-blowing and felt all too familiar to Scott.
*Upon entry into the exhibit, a museum staffer handed each attendee one of about 9 different illustrated bookmarks that included a bio of a well-known figure from Genghis Khan’s time (generals, his main wife, etc.). The one they handed to Scott read as follows: “My name is Rathwood. I grew up in a village near Kiev (western reaches of Genghis Khan’s empire). I have a good ear for languages, so I earn my living spying for the Great Khan. One cannot escape the Mongols, even here in Europe.” According to the exhibit, Rathwood was captured by the Austrians, tortured, and put to death. He refused to divulge any information. A past life recurring theme of Scott’s involving espionage made this especially amusing.
*While reading about Genghis Khan, Scott had a vision of a guy he hadn’t seen or thought of since high school as a Mongolian scout. In the vision, the guy rode up on a horse and dismounted to give his scouting report. They worked as busboys in a restaurant as teenagers in this life and the one thing Scott recalls about him is that he said he wanted to be a police officer (which is a modern day warrior of sorts).
*The Mongols were excellent with the bow. One of Genghis Khan’s nephews was honored for his great strength and accuracy--he could hit a target from over 400 yards. The Mongols were so skilled with the bow that they would fire it while standing in the stirrups at a full gallop--when the horse was at that point in its stride when all four of its hooves were in the air--and they could hit a target the size of an orange from 100+ yards. They would also fire the bow at enemies behind them while turned around in the saddle, and over their horse while hanging over the side, protected by their armored horse. Scott recalls learning archery in grade school and did very well with it. He hit all but one bulls-eye in the final test. Could it be a talent nurtured in a past life? You decide.
*When he first moved to Denver, Scott had a very clear, what he interpreted as, past life vision involving the “Archbishop of Canterbury.” On one of the visual time lines at the museum, it displayed how Genghis Khan’s father was killed by a tribal enemy about the same time (around 1200 AD) as the Archbishop of Canterbury (who was killed by the king of England). Genghis Khan was barely a teenager at the time.
It’s interesting that the two most distinct possible past life notions Scott has experienced while in Denver were on the same time line at the museum exhibit. Also on the same time line toward the end of the Mongol empire was an indication of the start of the Aztec empire, which he has also strongly identified with.
In summary, although none of the above past life assertions are verifiable with physical proof, they illustrate possible past lives, or at the very least important current life symbolism. If you follow your heart and strive to be centered through meditative practices (our audios help with that, and also aid past life recall), you’ll see beyond the mundane world and be open to a similar path to self-discovery.
