Born Again: Reincarnation Cases Involving Evidence of Past Lives with Xenoglossy Cases Researched by Ian Stevenson

The reincarnation cases of Penney Peirce are very compelling and crucial ones, as they demonstrate that split incarnation exists, which I define as one soul animating more than one human body at a time. Other terms for this phenomenon are twin souls, twin flames or parallel lives.

Split Incarnation & Children's Past Life Researcher Ian Stevenson, MD of the University of Virginia

It is very significant that the pioneer of reincarnation research, Ian Stevenson, MD, also documented cases of split incarnation.  Stevenson called these reincarnation cases with "anomolous dates," meaning that the reincarnated personality was born before the past life personality died.  The phenomenon of split incarnation is explained in the IISIS sections:

Split Incarnation or Parallel Lives

Principles of Reincarnation or Understanding Past LIves

We will see that two past lives of Penney Peirce, those of Charles Parkhurst and Alice Cary, overlapped by 29 years. In other words, Penney's soul inhabited both the physical body of Parkhurst and the physical body of Cary at the same time, for a period of 29 years.

Spirit Being or Spiritual Guidance in Reincarnation Cases

These cases are also fascinating as they involve a spirit being or spirit guide, channeled through a medium or psychic, who made what appears to be accurate past life identifications.  Penney's reincarnation cases are provided below, as is a discussion of split incarnation as it applies to her past lives.
