In the evening I was going to address a big meeting, nearabout twenty thousand people. I phoned the family and told them the whole story, and told them to come as disguised as possible. “Don’t use the same clothes as you used to when your sister died.” They said that their sister had died when she was nearabout ten.
The whole family came, and I told them, “You stand or sit in different places in the meeting, and let the girl find you.” The girl found everyone –except the people who were born after her, the little children.
She immediately recognized those whom she had left in her past life: “He is my brother” – his name, his qualities; also the mother, the father, the sister, even the servant. He had left them and he was serving somewhere else. They had brought him just to see whether she recognized the servant or not. She immediately recognized him and she said, “He was so loving to me.”
Her case became very famous. Many psychologists started to come to study her, but her parents were torn apart and she was torn apart. And now the new family – that means the past life’s family – were also torn apart. They wanted the girl back. To whom should the girl belong? Where should she go? She wanted both families to live together. That was not possible because now she was born into a brahmin family and the last time she had been born into a lower caste – and they could not live together, just because of the Hindu caste system.
And anyway, it was not feasible: they had their businesses, services, in Jabalpur and the other family had their businesses and things in Katni. It was not feasible for them to live together, but she was not ready to let go of anyone. So I said, “Do one thing: sometimes she can go and live with the family there in Jabalpur; sometimes she can go and live with you, so both families… And it is not far away – just two hours by road – so it is not a difficult problem.”
But it was difficult, because when she would leave one family she would cry and weep because she did not want to leave that family, and yet she wanted to go to the other family. Seeing the misery of that girl I suggested, “Let me hypnotize her. It is some kind of freak thing. Something has gone wrong in nature; otherwise everybody will be in this state.”
And this is only a question of two lives: if you remember four, five, six, seven lives, you will be in a mess. You won’t know what to do and what not to do. Time makes no difference. If you have loved a woman in the past life, you will again find yourself loving her; but what will you do with the woman you are loving now? You love her too!
Seeing her agony the parents agreed. She needed seven sessions of deep hypnosis to forget her past life, and then she was okay and healthy.
