Jewelle St. James
Foreword by Judy Hall
Paperback: 162 pages
Publisher: St. James Publishing; 1st edition (October 14, 2011)
Is ex-Beatle John Lennon the reincarnation of Branwell Brontë, troubled brother to England's most literary sisters? The untimely death of John Lennon in 1980 prompted a Canadian woman, Jewelle St. James, to investigate life after death and other spiritual phenomena. Research spanning thirty years, and ten journeys to England, was necessary to unravel past-life mysteries and other surprising connections.
What was the clue for you that Lennon was the reincarnation of Brontë?Is this meaning that Yoko Ono could be the reincarnation of Lydia Robinson?
JSJ: Well, what happened, and I also talked about this in AYNIL-- was that a friend and I were playing a psychic game…(laughs) we were young and just goofing around, and I said “who’s this?” I mean this was over 25 years ago. I was holding up a photo of a woman. She said “John Lennon was her sister in a former life!” She didn’t even know it was Emile Brontë (sic). Well I thought nothing of it, we were just playing around. But seven years later I was talking to another woman, a psychic who channeled John Lennon—and she said the same thing—that John was Emile (sic) Brontë’s brother. Well that gave me chills. So I decided to take it more seriously and started looking into it. I decided to acquaint myself with the Brontë family further, start researching, and everything started falling together. I took a trip to Yorkshire and it was amazing.
