It’s hard to actually get some sort of factual figure of the number of people on planet earth who believe in reincarnation, certainly the Theosophists, Spiritualists and followers of Eckankar, along Hindu’s for which reincarnation is a core belief. Sant mystics and Sikhism subscribe to reincarnation along with many African peoples and of course for the Native American nations, reincarnation is a central tenet.
Estimates are between 25-44% of the inhabitants of the world believe in reincarnation – and does it matter because this is not a situation where the majority decides, it comes down to individual belief, however that is a huge number of people amongst the 7.257 billion people who occupy planet earth.
And you could ask, well who of any noteworthiness believes in reincarnation anyway. Well this could really surprise you, from a historical point of view: Napoleon, Mark Twain, Benjamin Franklin, Leo Tolstoy, Henry Ford, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe the German poet, playwright and scientist, Mahatma Ghandi, Freidrich Nietzsche, Ralph Waldo Emerson, General George S. Patton, Albert Schweitzer, Walt Whitman, William Wordsworth, Jalalu Rumi (Islamic Poet of the 13th century), Carl Jung, Henry David Thoreau, Socrates, Voltaire, Jesus Christ in Gnostic Gospels: Pistis Sophia, in The Koran, Josephus (most well known Jewish historian from the time of Jesus), the French writer, Honore Balzac (French writer), Arthur Schopenhauer (Philosopher), Paul Gauguin (French post‐impressionist painter), George Harrison, Pythagoras.
With the even increasing acceptance of New Age thought and awareness, there is an ever increasing acceptance of reincarnation as a possibility: and where there’s reincarnation there is past life regression. Make an informed decision, experience a past regression yourself and enter the debate from a position of actuality.
