Past Life Story #5 - A Life Saved

This article was written by Florence Wagner McClain on May 31, 2002
posted under Past Life Regression

Ken, David, Erica and Mary were on an extended backpacking trip in a remote wilderness area. They were between two and three days walk from the nearest contact with civilization. Ken ignored a recurring little pain that turned out to be a small splinter that had gotten into his sock and was working its way into the instep of his foot.

That evening in camp, Ken discovered the splinter and thought he removed all of it. He ignored the apparently minor irritation. The following day was a long, hard, hot day and Ken didn't feel too well, but neither did anyone else. However, by the end of the day it was evident that while the others were just hot and tired, Ken was seriously ill and feverish. When he removed his boot, his foot was badly inflamed and infected, and an angry red streak extended past his ankle. That was a good indication that Ken probably had blood poisoning. He was getting sicker by the moment. It was obvious that he couldn't walk out, and it didn't look like he would last long enough for one of the others to walk out and bring help.

Erica had experienced past life regression numerous times. She had remembered several lifetimes when she had practiced medicine-usually with an extensive knowledge of medicinal herbs. Calling on everything she could remember from those regressions, Erica opened and cleansed the wound, and applied suction using a small glass bottle partially filled with hot water. Then Erica packed the wound with a poultice prepared from garlic and certain medicinal plants she found growing in the surrounding area. She also fed Ken small amounts of garlic throughout the night. She remembered having used garlic for healing many times in past lives, and knew also that recent research had shown it to have an antibiotic effect.

By the following morning, Ken was feeling better and the infection in his foot was radically improved. Treatment was continued, and by the third morning Ken was free of fever and there was only minimal redness around the wound. Ken was able to finish the hike in fine shape.

I talk to people about tarot all the time, and one of the things I hear a lot is, "Oh, I'm not good at tarot," or, "I've tried and it just doesn't work for me," or, "I just don't feel it with the cards." Well, first of all, you might not feel it, and that's okay. I grew up playing cards, from Go Fish through Hearts and Gin Rummy, everyone in my... read this article
