The Reincarnation Case of Michael Byrne | John Lennon
Article by: Walter Semkiw, MD
I was told that John Lennon had an affinity for ships and the life of those who sailed them. When I asked Ahtun Re where this sympathy came from, he told me that Lennon had been a "fiddler" on the Bounty. I then asked if Lennon was one who sided with the mutineers or whether he was a loyalist. Ahtun Re told me Lennon was one of the loyalists.
At first I found this hard to believe, as the Bounty had a relatively small crew and my initial review of information regarding the Bounty made no mention of musicians on board.
Further investigation revealed that a fiddler was assigned to the Bounty whose name was Michael Byrne. Bryne indeed sided with the loyalists and eventually made his way back to England. In a subsequent session with Kevin Ryerson, Ahtun Re confirmed that John Lennon had been Byrne in a prior incarnation.
Byrne was described as nearly blind. Lennon and Branwell Bronte, another past incarnation of John Lennon, also were very nearsighted. When I asked Ahtun Re about why Lennon's incarnations have a common trait of vision problems, he explained that Lennon, in ancient Egypt, had a lifetime in which he was blind. In Egypt, Ahtun Re continued, blind individuals were trained as musicians. Since then, Lennon has has the desire to have lifetimes enveloped in sound.
Ian Stevenson, MD, has observed that individuals who have died of traumatic wounds, such as from gunshots or stabbing, in subsequent incarnations often have scars or birthmarks in the same locations on the body. Though this phenomenon is not well understood, it appears that damage to organs in one lifetime can have residual effects in future incarnations.
If this reincarnation case is accepted, it demonstrates the following features:
Physical Resemblance from One Lifetime to Another: This cannot be assessed, as an image of Michael Byrne is not available.
Innate Talent: Byrne and Lennon were both professional musicians.
