Reunion on the Rainbow Bridge: My Parents' Past Lives and the One They Shared with Me
In 1953, Sherri Defesche’s parents, Jim and Shirley Swanson, were married in a hospital room just ten days after a car accident had left Shirley a paraplegic. She was only 17 at the time, while Jim was 20. What followed, despite the hardships they faced, was a 46-year love affair blessed with unconditional love, joy, and four happy children. When Shirley died in 1999, a grief-stricken Defesche began to explore her deepest beliefs about death, eventually discovering Eastern spiritual philosophies about the afterlife and the possibility of past lives. This book is the moving chronicle of her journey and what she found.
Defesche details her meeting with a past-life regression therapist, who helps her discover that her parents had been soul mates over more than 200 incarnations. From Lemurians living in paradise to Celtic children in Scotland, from a Chinese farming family to World War I heroes, her parents’ past lives provide the author with a sweeping historical context that helps her to understand the undying nature of her parents’ soul connection and love, and why human beings continue to incarnate across eons.
