Voices of the Past brings to you a bizzare mystery of the past that has left experts and all who encounter the case baffled. Most people like to believe that even the most impossible of puzzles can be solved given time, but that’s not always the case.
Let’s dive ino the 1957, when two sisters, Joanna and Jacqueline Pollock along with their friend Anthony were tragically killed in a car accident as they walked to their local church in Northumberland, England. Parents, John and Florence, were grief stricken hoping their daughters would come back home. Is seemed their prayers would be answered when just a year later twin girls, Jennifer and Gillian were born.
To the surprise of the parents, Jennifer, the younger twin, had birthmarks on her face and body in the same exact place their deceased daughter Jaqueline had. This is where a series of uncanny similarities between the twins and their deceased sisters begin.
At the age of two, the twins began to ask for toys that had once been owned by Jacqueline anad Joanna. According to the parents, the twins had never heard of or seen these toys before.
At the age of four, the twins began to recognize places that they had never seen or visited before. The parents recalled an instance where the twins pointed to a school that they claimed was their school, remembering having played on the playground behind it. This school had been the one Jacqueline and Joanna had attended.
A well respected psychologist at that time, a Dr. Ian Stevenson, studied the girls’ case and concluded that these twin sisters were indeed the deceased sisters reincarnated. But just as suddenly as these twins were remembering things about their sisters, the memories vanished at the age of five. The twins went on to live happy, ordinary lives.
When I read this story I wondered if this story is indeed true, how would I react if a child of mine was reincarnated into another child born years later. I honestly don’t know what my reaction would be. I think I would be elated with joy to have my baby back, but it would be devestating to only have my child leave me again. Could you rebond with the child who assumes their own identity?
Let those of us joining into the conversation know what you think and how you think you might react.
