What’s a military commander with an extremely large number of murders on his hands to do?
Become a world-famous medium, of course.
At least that’s the path taken by James Van Praagh, co-executive producer of the hit CBS series Ghost Whisperer.
Interviewed on Journey into the Paranormal, James recalls why he decided to devote his life to helping rehab his fellow man.
“I had a past-life regression with Dr. Brian Weiss once, and it was very interesting. It was for a group of about 200 people, and I was sitting in the back of the room,” he tells host Joseph Tittel.
“And Dr. Weiss said to ask yourself any question during the regression. And I asked, ‘Why am I doing this work as a medium?’
“And instantly I had a vision of myself as a child as a general. I was a general in many, many wars. I saw my face. The only thing that changed were the uniforms.
“I was in like 10 wars—Prussia and the Civil War and other Russian wars and French wars,” continues James, whose new book is titled Unfinished Business: What the Dead Can Teach Us About Life.
“And I’m like, Oh my God. I was a general in all those wars and I was responsible for telling my men to kill people. I was responsible for the deaths of millions of people in those lifetimes.
“So now I came back in this lifetime to heal that situation. And I had to reach millions and millions of people to balance out that karma.”
