Reincarnation Case of Theda Bara | Madonna


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

Article by: Walter Semkiw, MD


In a session with Kevin Ryerson, Madonna has been confirmed by Ahtun Re to be the reincarnation of Theda Bara, who was a sex symbol of the silent screen era.

Theta wore very revealing and provocative costumes, much like Madonna's lingerie-like outfits.

Of interest, Madonna likely believes in reincarnation, as she has been a strong supporter of the Kabbalah Centre in Los Angeles.  Reincarnation is accepted in the teachings of this organization. I had the good fortune to do a presentation on evidence of reincarnation for Yehuda Berg, who is a co-director of The Kabbalah Centre.

If this reincarnation case is accepted, it demonstrates the following features.

Principles of Reincarnation & Understanding Past Lives

Physical Resemblance: The facial features of Theda Bara and Madonna are consistent. One difference is that Theda maintained a heavier body weight, while Madonna seems to get leaner as she gets older.

Innate Talent: Theda Bara and Madonna have both been extremely successful and internationally famous entertainers.

Change of Religion and Ethnic Affiliation: Theda was born to a Jewish family with Polish and Swiss roots, while Madonna was born into an Italian Catholic family.  Madonna's Jewish past lifetime as Theda may explain her affinity for the Kabbalah, which is an esoteric Jewish system of spirituality.
