The Confederate Yankee


In episode 6 of The Phoenix Podcast, I discussed the most documented case of reincarnation - the Jeffrey Keene story. This was a case that even the most die-hard skeptics simply can't ignore. The number of "coincidences" or synchronicities between Jeffrey Keene today and Civil War General John Gordon just pile up when you look at everything...and it's tough to dismiss.

Their faces are nearly identical. Keene's birthmark above his left eye matches a wound General Gordon received in battle. There's the flood of specific memories Keene experienced, their same writing styles, their similar personalities, their choices of careers, and the matching dates of significant occurances for both men.

Keene's story has been featured on the show Proof Positive on the Sci-Fi Channel, A&E, The History Channel, Biography, and many other publications and media outlets.

Jeffrey Keene himself actually listened to Episode 6, and e-mailed me his response:

(And yes, "Jason" is my real first name - duh!)

Hi Jason,

The reason for my book was to open others eyes. In the four years it has been out I have received many comments from people all over the world. So, it appears to be doing the job intended. I listened to your podcast and think you are doing a great job. Keep it up. Strange you should play the Twilight Zone music, it was written by Marty Manning, my first wife's uncle. Small world. Sounds like you saw the Proof Positive show on the Sci Fi Channel that carried my story. Keep an eye out for the documentary titled Beyond Death. They show it on A&E, History Channel and Biography every so often. I was very pleased with the way the Sci Fi people handled my story. I spent six days with them and they were thorough to say the least. Thanks again for passing on my story so others may learn from it.

Best, Jeff Keene

Thank you, Jeff Keene, for sharing your story with all of us.

Episode 7 will be coming out very soon...where I get hypnotized and reveal three of my own past lives experiences.

Dude, I am such a believer in reincarnation.

I would LOVE to see the transcripts or a written experience. I don't get the podcasts. :( My computer dosen't like them and I can't "sit" and listen with two kids.

I talked to one woman who did past life regression, but she just talked on the phone. I have a feeling I got fleeced, but she spun a story that made sense in my life, and included the people around me.

That's pretty cool. I'm glad he enjoyed it.

It's always amazing to hear back from the people that we do stories about. And really good when they aren't cursing.

Cool!!!
Very cool!
And very cool that he emailed you.
And really cool that he called you by your first name!

Jason...I figure I can call you Jason if that dude can...he doesn't even KNOW you like I do. ;-)

Anyway, VERY, VERY cool!

So awesome that he took the time to email you. :)

That's cool that he emailed you and that he enjoyed your podcast.

Are you really going to get hypnotized? I've often wondered what it would be like to do that. I'll wait and see what kind of experience you have first.

This is very cool. I was never anyone famous in my past lives.

In one, I was the "slow" child of a poor family and left on the side of the road when they could no longer feed me. I died.

The Egg said...

Very cool! "The truth is out there..." Nice that we can talk about this stuff here. I've had so many synchronities--it's not even funny anymore.

The Egg said...

By the way, thanks for the add to the Nobel section. I'm truly honored:-)

Sounds like fun. I thought his letter was going to accuse you of copyright infringment for using the TZ music.

Whew--you dodged a bullet there ... a 19th century bullet, that is.

The subject of reincarnation has always intrigued me. As a History major I noticed that there were certain eras that seemed "familiar" to me, moreso than the rest-- almost as if studying those eras was more like reminiscing than it was learning about the past.

Sorry, I've not been around as much as I used to be. I was promoted at work and watched what little free time nearly completely disappear. Yours is still one of my favorite blogs, so don't worry I'll never completely disappear. . .

But I may someday reincarnate as a different poster.

You know, I DO believe in reincarnation but I just don't get the idea that someone would look exactly like they did in a past life. It's one of those niggling scientific things that spoil my paranormal beliefs.

I like Paris Hilton!

Etchen said...

That is so cool! I can't get your podcats, so will you please do a blog post of what your past lives were? ;-)
