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.

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.

Even though sightings of both Bigfoot and UFOs occurring at the same times and places are not uncommonly reported by eyewitnesses, the concurrence of such events is generally dismissed as coincidental, and any possible substantial connection between the two phenomena is not considered a matter of serious inquiry.
