  • A strange story somewhat similar to reincarnation!

    There is a word for this called metempsychosis: transmigration of the soul from a dead person to a living person upon death. Imagine waking up in someone else's body! This happened to a young girl who died from scarlet fever. Well...I guess she died. Anyway...another little girl who had died earlier woke up in her body. She called out for her mother, but of course the woman SHE was looking for was miles away.

    Eventually the "posessed girl" ran home miles away and found her mother grieving about her death. She kept saying: It's me mother! The mother rejected her at first (because she was in a different body), but eventually accepted her as her daughter. The other parents knew what was going on, but what could they do? The posessed girl stayed in the house for several months until the dead girl's mother became pregnant again. The exact moment she told her husband about being pregnant, the little posessed girl called out from upstairs: Mother, I feel funny...or something to that effect, and then passed out. When she woke up, the rightful owner of the body was back again and said: Where am I? What am I doing here?

    These stories are supposed to be true. Somehow the little girl who died came to the rescue of her grieving mother; otherwise, the mother would have died. A touching story of love beyond the grave. I liked this episode very much.moreless
