When Barack Obama rose upon the US national political stage with his 2008 run for the Presidency, many people wrote to me with the speculation that he is the reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln. Though I did not think that it was a valid match, I asked Ahtun Re in a session with Kevin Ryerson whether it is possible that Obama is the reincarnation of Lincoln. Ahtun Re said, "No, but he was close to Lincoln."
Ahtun Re explained that Obama was a fellow Senator from Illinois who served with Lincoln, who was involved with writing the constitutional amendment which ended slavery. Ahtun Re later confirmed that Obama was Lyman Trumbull, an abolistionist who as chairman of the Judiciary Committee, co-wrote the 13th amendment which did end slavery in the United States.
I hadn't heard about this until recently, but it seems that a number of people are making the case for Barack Obama being a reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln. Interesting theory, but does it hold water? Well, it's hard to say.
First of all, I can see why people are making this connection. There are certainly some similiarites between Obama and Lincoln, although some seem to be a bit of a stretch. Both were Illinois senators, although Obama isn't from Illinois, he was born in Hawaii. Both lost a parent at an early age, and were raised in relative poverty. From a physical standpoint, both have fairly prominent ears, and both are reasonably tall men. Certainly, both are eloquent and gifted speakers.
However, does this constitute proof of anything? No, unless you count it as proof that the general public needs to feel a sense of hope in the new president, and who better to inspire that than Abraham Lincoln? For many people that subscrube to the Obama/Lincoln idea, the fact that Obama is biracial doesn't matter. In fact, it may be a sign that America has become a melting pot, and that black and white can come together equally... a message Lincoln might have agreed with when he signed the Emancipation Proclaimation.
One could also argue that there are as many differences between the two men as there are similarities.
Walter Semkiw, a medical doctor who says he's made extensive study of reincarnation, makes the suggestion
that it's actually Lyman Trumbull, Lincoln's contemporary, who has come back in Barack Obama. Trumbull was the author of the Thirteenth Amendment, which made slavery illegal in the United States.
SAN FRANCISCO-based Dr Walter Semkiw, a practising physician, claims that Barack Obama is the reincarnation of Lyman Trumbull, an Illinois Democratic senator and the principal author of the Thirteenth Amendment, which put an end to slavery in US.
Trumball, Lyman, a Senator from Illinois; born in Colchester, Conn., October 12, 1813; attended Bacon Academy; taught school in Connecticut 1829-1833; studied law; admitted to the bar and commenced practice in Greenville, Ga.; moved to Belleville, Ill., 1837; member, State house of representatives 1840-1841; secretary of State of Illinois in 1841 and 1843; justice of the supreme court of Illinois 1848-1853; elected to the Thirty-fourth Congress in 1854, but before the beginning of the Congress was elected to the United States Senate; reelected in 1861 and again in 1867, and served from March 4, 1855, to March 3, 1873; was at various times a Democrat, then Republican, then Liberal Republican, then Democrat; chairman, Committee on the Judiciary (Thirty-seventh through Forty-second Congresses); resumed the practice of law in Chicago, Ill.; unsuccessful candidate for Governor of Illinois in 1880; died in Chicago, Ill., June 25, 1896; interment in Oakwoods Cemetery.
A US doctor Walter Semkiw, who researches into past life, has claimed that Barack Obama was apparently a close associate of Abraham Lincoln in his previous life. Consequent upon the doctor�s disclosure, Obama�s past life is being hotly discussed.
SAN FRANCISCO-based Dr Walter Semkiw, a practising physician, claims that Barack Obama is the reincarnation of Lyman Trumbull, an Illinois Democratic senator and the principal author of the Thirteenth Amendment, which put an end to slavery in US. After Obama’s victory at the Presidential election, more information has been emerging on Obama by the day but this information is forcing everyone to think over and react. Incidentally, Illinois is the state that Lincoln represented and which Obama represents now.
Semkiw, who has written two books on reincarnation, viz., "Return of the Revolutionaries", focusing on cases of personalities reincarnated from the time of the American Revolution and "Born Again" which features reincarnation cases of Indian celebrities, says that he arrived at Obama’s past life in a similar manner: through a combination of psychic sessions as well as background research. About his research on Trumbull, Semkiw says that he found many similarities between him and Obama. After finishing law school, Trumbull moved to Illinois in the 1830s, where he set up a practice. He represented African-American slaves many times against slave-owners. In addition, says Semkiw, Trumbull was a great orator - one who could move people with his words, a quality that Obama also possesses.
An interesting feature of this case is that a Caucasian abolitionist reincarnated as an African American to further the cause of racial equality in the United States by becoming the first African-American President.
If the Trumbull | Obama reincarnation case is accepted, it demonstrates the following features:
Principles of Reincarnation
Physical Resemblance in Reincarnation Cases:The facial features of Lyman Trumbull and Barack Obama are consistent.
Innate Talent:Lyman Trumbull served on the US Senate Judiciary Committee and Barack Obama has been a professor of law and editor of the Harvard Law Review.
Relationships Renewed through Reincarnation:It is likely that Lyman Trumbull knew Abraham Lincoln's son, Robert Todd Lincoln, who has reincarnated as Steven Spielberg. Spielberg is considered a friend of Barack Obama and they have had meals together.
Change in Race: Lyman Trumbull was Caucasian, while Barack Obama is African American, having an African father and a caucasian, American mother.
he question about the Religions, throughout that website, there are examples of people being reincarnated in different religions.
About the person's Looks, if reincarnation is true, they should look different in each life time based on the theory of DNA and etc..
Again, some of the people who are mentioned in the Reincarnation Website, Look completely Different then in their previous Lifes. Steven Spielberg, who is suppose to be the reincarnation of Lincoln's Son looks completely different. Also you have people who reincarnated in different races. Like Obama, who was a White person before. And Ophray Windfrey who was a White Male Homosexual before.
But as far as those looking the same as their previous lives, I could only give this possibility as an answer. Maybe their personalities have something to do with the way they look.
For instance, if you look at Excellent Actors, for example, Robert De Niro, and look at the very DIFFERENT Personality they play. And even though it is the same person, De Niro looks very different in each role he plays. Meaning the personality of the person comes through in their looks also. When you See an Asshole of a Person, you can right away just by looking at him or her that this person is off or is an Asshole and etc.. That is because his personality is ALSO coming through in their looks!!!
If only this article had been published two years ago. Think of the time that would have been saved if the "He's not experienced enough" argument had been eliminated. He was an aide to President Lincoln for crying out loud! Can't get much more experience than that.The man who made this announcement goes on to say "If we accept the case of Trumbull having reincarnated as Obama, it also sends out an important message that individuals can change race from one incarnation to another," Really? That's the important message? Since Hindu's believe you can change species from one incarnation to another, I don't see race as being such a big barrier.
I've heard people repeatedly say that the U.S. hasn't been this politically divided since the Civil War, and then often remarking about the irony of a Senator from Illinois being elected followed by the inevitable comparison of President Elect Obama to the late President Lincoln.Lincoln reincarnating into our soon to be Commander In Chief has also come up. There are even web sites about the subject, in which some man proclaiming to be the authority on "who's who" in the reincarnated world has stated that PE Obama is NOT FP Abe, but he is actually the newer version of a man named Lyman Trumbull. "Lymie" was also a Senator from Illinois during the Civil War, and he co-authored the Thirteenth Amendment that helped put an end to slavery.
"If we accept the case of Trumbull having reincarnated as Obama, it also sends out an important message that individuals can change race from one incarnation to another," says Semkiw. "Imagine how much more peaceful the world would be if we all realized that identification with one's particular race, nationality, sect or religion is just a temporary one and that it can change from lifetime to lifetime."
