We are definitely living multiple lifetimes on this planet earth. Often I get flashbacks from previous lives. I think one life, I was drinking a very dark beer out of a flagon from the Middle Ages and I stunk because I hadn't taken a bath in some 15 years.
But that was then. In this lifetime, I shower once a day and drink my beer out of mugs like a civilized person.
Strange story, but true.
During World War 2 a German nun belonging to the Sisters of Charity was working at a German military hospital in East Prussia. The head of the hospital surrendered it to the Russians who then murdered all the patients and killed and raped most of the nursing staff.
This nun was later found in a Polish farmhouse in a coma-she had just appeared there one day accompanied by a Russian officer who appealed to the owners of the farm to care for her.
This nun finally came out of her coma in 1946 but could no longer speak her native language, German, but could speak English fluently, a language unknown to her at that time.
She later emigrated to the US in the fifties where I met her-she was one of my teachers in Catholic school and was someone I never forgot.
She spoke English without a trace of German accent
