George S. Patton: The Eternal Soldier

“I wonder if I could have been here before as I drive up the Roman road the Theater seems familiar — perhaps I headed a legion up that same white road… I passed a chateau in ruins which I possibly helped escalate in the middle ages. There is no proof nor yet any denial. We were, We are, and we will be.” George S. Patton

Generally regarded as one of the greatest military minds in American and perhaps world history, General George S. Patton (11 November 1885 – 21 December 1945), is also one of history’s most colorful figures as well. He was as known for his pithy statements and direct approach to solving problems as he was for his military genius. However, what people who only know him by name don’t realize is that Patton was a firm believer in past lives and the concept of reincarnation which during his lifetime was not an accepted notion in the West. This is why Patton holds the interest of people who specialize in metaphysics and past life regression therapy. That a man so pragmatic and hard-nosed could believe in this metaphysical concept amazes people who first learn of his belief yet his life is full of quotes and experiences to back up the claim.

Other personages Patton believed himself to have inhabited during other periods in history include:

  • A prehistoric mammoth hunter
  • A Greek hoplite that fought the Persians
  • A soldier of Alexander the Great who fought at the siege of Tyre
  • Hannibal
  • A Roman legionary under Julius Caesar
  • An English knight during the Hundred Years War
  • A Napoleonic marshal

Patton’s official religion was Episcopalian; however, his belief in reincarnation aligns itself more with religions of the east than with the Abrahamic religions of the West. Reincarnation is a tent pole of religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism. Even Greek figures like Pythagoras, Socrates, and Plato strongly believed in the concept of past lives.

Patton died as the result of a vehicular accident at the age of 60. Throughout Patton’s storied career, he intuited that his past lives had always involved the need to distinguish him in battle and to serve a greater cause. He instinctively felt during several battles a sense of being in a similar situation in another life centuries earlier. At our facility it is not uncommon that we encounter people who intuit that they may have unfinished business that has carried over with them from another life. Other patients have no concept of or belief in reincarnation. In either case, we specialize in past life regression in Denver that is thorough and probing. We can help people regardless of their feelings about this phenomenon.
