|Dr. Ian Stevenson, (1918 to 2007) head of the Division of Perceptual Studies at The University of Virginia.|
By Dorraine Fisher
If you believe we've lived past lives, or are just curious, you might want to try following the
career of the late Ian Stevenson, the Canadian born psychiatrist and head of the Division of Perceptual Studies at the University of Virginia for nearly 40 years. He was studying and documenting thousands of cases of past life accounts. And in that span of time, managed to build a pretty strong case for the phenomenon.
But what has been even more astounding is that subjects often physically resembled some of
those individuals from a past life. And it came to be recognized as a possible clue of a past life, even
though the resemblances didn't consistently occur in all subjects. But when they did, the resemblances were often uncanny; almost eerie. And sometimes family and other associations could be found to support some of these cases. And it soon became part of the framework in which
Dr. Stevenson did his work.

But it's also interesting to note that these resemblances are still being found on a regular basis
around the world. And some of them are being considered and studied by child psychiatrist, Dr. JimTucker, who is continuing Dr. Stevenson's work.
But check out some compelling photos of known people from the present time and their
possible past-life counterparts. Are these just coincidences or is there a correlation? You decide.
