Reincarnation Case of Henry Ward Beecher | Jon Stewart


Affirmed by: Spirit Guide or Spirit Being Ahtun Re in a Ryerson-Semkiw Reincarnation Research Session

Article by: Walter Semkiw, MD


Jon Stewart as Reincarnation of Henry Ward BeecherAn IISIS supporter wrote to me to bring attention to a web site featuring of celebrity look-alikes, as it was possible that some of the look-alike's could represent reincarnation cases.  In reviewing the site, I thought that a few, though not all, were plausible as reincarnation cases.

One case that I asked about in a session with Kevin Ryerson involves Jon Stewart, host of the Daily Show, which I am a fan of and watch regularly.  Jon Stewart bears a striking resemblance to Henry Ward Beecher.  In my session with Kevin, Ahtun Re confirmed that Stewart is the reincarnation of Beecher

The political views of Beecher and Stewart are consistent in that both can be characterized as being liberal and progressive.  For example, Beecher supported women being given the right to vote, Darwin's theory of evolution and he was in abolitionist.

Of importance, Beecher had Jon Stewart's sense of humor.  Consider the following quote: "Unlike his serious siblings, Henry was a natural cutup, with an infectious sense of humor and a special talent for mimicry." (1)

A related case, which was derived in a similar way, involves Alec Baldwin as the reincarnation of Millard Fillmore.
