Past Lives



Last night, we watched the first show in the new series, "Past Lives" on Fox TV. Since I've been fascinated by reincarnation for as long as I can remember, I was excited to discover that network television is interested as well.

The first program featured the story of a 14-year-old boy who starts having memories of the traumatic kidnapping and drowning death of an eight-year-old girl. His memories, pieced together with the work of the two paranormal investigators who star in the show, result in the discovery of the girl's four-year-old sister who is now 18. She is reunited with her parents who had no idea she might still be alive.

My fascination with reincarnation inspired my first novel, Hearts Across Forever. I wondered what would happen if my heroine saw a painting of Rose Hall Great House (in Jamaica) and that event began to trigger a series of memories. In my book, Kathryn visits the famous old plantation house where she has a vision of people from her past life in 19th Century Jamaica dancing on the portico. She remembers a life as the star-crossed niece of Annie Palmer, known as the White Witch of Rose Hall.

I look forward to seeing more of the "Past Lives" television dramas. Hopefully, this show will spark renewed interest in my book which is still available on Amazon.

Other Oak Tree authors who have reincarnation stories may enjoy viewing programs from this television series. I'd like to know what you think about them.

Reincarnation isn't something I believe in, but I loved the new show. I'm more inclined to believe we have carryover from our ancestors in our DNA.

Mary McNamara of the LA Times was not thrilled by the show. Her review was titled: Past Life Needs a Different Incarnation, which caught my eye. She added: Finally, there is something unforgivable about opening a series with a case involving not just a troubled teen but the abduction and particularly horrific death of a child. If you have to resort to killing kids to make your pilot pop, you might want to rethink your show.

But maybe the next episode will be better... And if they do it better, there'll be an audience since reincarnation has always fascinated people.

Kit, who only watches old movies on TV!

Have you ever read any of Dr. Ian Stevenson's studies with children who remember their past lives? He's at the University of Virginia and has done some extremely scientific work on the subject. He's written quite a few books.

The show last night was related to a cold case 14 years earlier, so the death of the child felt less horrific. What bothered me most about this episode was the swat-like team that went in after the guy who killed the reincarnated boy. I found it hard to believe they would send a big team like that in after him based on evidence from a past life situation. I would think detectives might go in and bring him in for questioning.

The next episode will air tomorrow evening.
