Six Previous Lives

The Reaction

On the whole, Iverson found Jane Evans's regressions extraordinarily detailed, remarkably accurate, and unavoidably inconclusive.

Upon hearing the tape of Livonia, Leeds University Prof. Brian Hartley, an authority on Roman Britain, was clearly impressed, concluding that "On the whole, it is fairly convincing and checks out, as far as one can check, against known historical facts. . . . Livonia knew some quite remarkable historical facts, and numerous published works would have to be consulted if anyone tried to prepare the outline of such a story. . . . If the lady is hypnotized again," Hartley added, "please ask her where the amphitheater was. We've never been able to find it."

In checking the tape of Rebecca, the 12th century Jewess, York University Prof. Barrie Dobson, an authority on this period of Jewish history, found the story "true to what we know of the events and the times themselves," with much of the historical detail likely to be known only to professional historians. In an interesting postscript to Rebecca's story, Dobson used her account to identify conclusively--in his own mind, at least--the site of the church where she died. In so doing, however, he was puzzled by the fact that Rebecca claimed to have died in a cellar, and the church Dobson located had none. Or so he thought. Six months after Iverson left York, he received a letter from Dobson stating that during the process of restoration, a workman had indeed uncovered what appeared to be an ancient crypt or cellar.

Perhaps Iverson's most remarkable findings came as he examined the life of Alison, servant (and perhaps lover) to the wealthy Frenchman Jacques Coeur. Not only was Jane Evans, as Alison, able to recreate the interior of at least one of Coeur's castles and describe in detail the world events, dress, political intrigue, and art of the time, but her casual mention of an obscure item (a golden apple) that belonged to Coeur ultimately led Iverson to find that a golden apple appeared on an equally obscure list of possessions confiscated from Coeur's estate when he was thrown into prison.

Jane Evans's remaining three regressions were accurate to the extent that they included verifiable historical facts, but even more believable, according to Iverson, for the fact that they did not place her in the middle of still more major world events. In the end, Iverson is the first to acknowledge that neither he nor Bloxham has proved anything. And yet, the mere fact that a rather common Welsh housewife should possess such a richly detailed knowledge of so much history and so many obscure facts is deserving of an explanation in itself. To be sure, the existence of prior lives is not the only explanation; but that it should at least be considered is supported by a quote Iverson found in Carl Jung's Memories, Dreams, Reflections: "Rationalism and doctrinairism are the diseases of our time; they pretend to have the answers. But a great deal will yet be discovered which our present limited view would have ruled out as impossible. . . . I lend an attentive ear to the strange myths of the psyche, and take a careful look at the varied events that come my way, regardless of whether or not they fit with my theoretical postulates."
