Reincarnation/Expert Profile


Ask A Question

Expertise

I can answer questions about reincarnation (from both Eastern and Western perspectives) and life after death, and how these topics relate to religion and spirituality.

Experience in the area


I produced a documentary entitled "In Another Life: Reincarnation in America" which aired on PBS station KBDI in Denver, CO, Jan. 2003
I have a masters in counseling from FSU, and over thirty years' study of Eastern mysticism from carefully selected sources, plus eight years' study of contemporary Western reincarnation studies. I've published nine related articles online and in print. I offer an online class on the subject and maintain an extensive educational website at www.ial.goldthread.com, as well as giving talks and radio interviews (archived on the website).

What do you like about this subject?

It gives purpose and a moral order to the universe; it also goes a long way towards giving a context for our likes, dislikes, interpersonal connections, fears and dreams. It can give you a better understanding of what your individual purpose is in this lifetime. It also makes Christianity make sense.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I'd like to learn more about how reincarnation interacts with genetics (I have some theories); and more about exactly how people can make decisions about what their next life will be like (there are some areas where you can choose).

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Reincarnation has been proven scientifically, but has been rejected or ignored by mainstream science for cultural and "political" reasons, not for the quality of the research.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Birthmarks and congenital scars which have no other explanation or apparent cause, may be left over from the mental impressions of an injury in a previous lifetime. This has profound implications for the influence of past lives on one's health.

Dear Filomena,    I believe that it is impossible to form this kind of attachment to someone, whether you have physically met them or not, without a past-life connection. Beyond that, I can't say anything

I think there may be experimental designs for non-verbal persons. The important thing would be to avoid traumatization in the testing process. I'm looking forward to receiving your article. However I am

Not having studied the issue extensively, and not having any direct contact with autistic children, I had wondered whether some of them might have been heavy users of LSD. I saw the work of a three-year-old

2015-03-23 Life:

I understand about individual progress, but I don't know about group tests or species tests. I believe that God is pulling the strings. But now we are getting beyond the realm of just reincarnation.

I can only say that my Guru, Meher Baba, said that there have been multiple earths, i.e., planets fulfilling the function of earth, and presumably there will be more. Personally, I have the impression
