John , I spent alot of time reading Cayce when I was younger. His stuff on colours , stones and auras. I also read alot of Ruth Montgomery stuff . About reincarnation and step ins. Then there is all of Shirley MacLane's books. Known of these are actually science based. I really think genetic memories are carried in DNA. I don't really go for the reincarnation thing or ghosts. I have my own theory. But I do very much believe things exist that we don't quite have a handle on yet.
I live about 5 miles from the Navajo and Hopi . I grew up with kids from both reservations and have been exposed to many cultures. It is not unusual to talk about Skin Walkers , Shape Shifters and Were Wolves as existing in the now. They all have a generational history. I know people who know gramps was a shifter. Whether or not others believe this stuff is not important. I think it is something that people should feel OK to add to a bio.
