That seems to be part of the issue. In these communications, be they with a higher self, another spirit, or remembering a past life, it seems we rarely get new information. Data which can be validated, data which is unknown to all present here, or at least generally unknown to the laymen. It seems that if I indeed could remember a time even as soon as, say, as 800 years ago I would be able to give out details that aren't generally known outside of a high level of expertise, perhaps. If someone can indeed chat with a spirit, and said spirit has memories of prior times, or is even able to witness events from the past now, as some claim they are able to do, it also seems to be that it should be easy to get new information through them. Likewise, many write that spirits can easily read thoughts. Seems it would be easy to get one, then, to validate that through simple tests. It's difficult that on the one hand, people who have LBL hypnotherapy do give a fairly consistent account of the 'life between lives'. It varies some from therapist to therapist, but from what I've seen it's mostly smaller details the shift. Either tthe therapist has some major influence over what is said, then, and that accounts for the consistency, or it seems it could be plausible that the accounts are similar because they have been experienced that way at some point. The influence hypothesis seems plausible in some ways, but not in many transcripts I've read, or recorded sessions I've watched. I really don't know what to think.
