Joseph Conrad and a Past Life of Anthony Bourdain

Anthony Bourdain Reincarnation Cunningham Graham I have been of fan of Anthony Bourdain for many years. I enjoy the travel aspect of his shows, as well as his keen intellect, irreverent sense of humor and honesty. As I was watching one of his programs he referred to Joseph Conrad’s novel, Heart of Darkness. At that moment, I had the intuition that in a past life, Bourdain had something to do with Conrad.

At first I though that he may have been Joseph Conrad in a past lifetime, but when I read about Conrad, I realized his personality was opposite to that of Bourdain. When I read that Conrad had a good friend named Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham, I noted that Graham was very much like Bourdain is today, in both personality and appearance. In a session with Kevin Ryerson, the spirit being Ahtun Re affirmed that Anthony Bourdain is the reincarnation of Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham. Place your cursor on images to enlarge them.

The Life of  Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham & Correspondences with Anthony Bourdain

Graham was born in London, England. After finishing his education in Europe, Graham, like Bourdain, became an adventurer and explorer.  He traveled to Argentina, where he made a great deal of money in the cattle ranching business. Bourdain, by the way, is an unabashed carnivore. Graham also traveled to Morroco, Spain, Mexico and Texas.

Graham was a liberal and a socialist who was elected to the British Parliament. Anthony’s political and societal views are also very liberal. In a most intriguing correspondence, Graham was fond of cursing and he was the first Member of Parliament to be suspended from the House of Commons for swearing (he used the word “damn”). Bourdain is known for swearing on his show, though his curse words are censored on his television programs.

Graham was also a prolific author. Bourdain is the writer of his show and he is a published author. Graham was a friend of Joseph Conrad and in fact, it was Graham who helped Joseph Conrad get his career started by introducing Conrad to Graham’s publisher, Edward Garnett.

Anthony Bourdain Reincarnation Ottavia Past Life Ottavia Busia Bourdain as the Reincarnaton Graham's wife, Gabrielle

In Mexico City, Graham taught fencing. Though I understand that Anthony Bourdain has just recently started doing martial arts, it is interesting that his wife, Ottavia, is a competitive practitioner of jiu-jitsu. Of interest, Ahun Re has affirmed that Ottavia is the reincarnation of Graham’s wife, Gabrielle Chideock de la Balmondiere. A physical resemblance exists between Gabrielle and Ottavia.

If these cases are accepted, they demonstrate the following features:
