There are claims made for the authenticity of of previous lives based on memories which seemed to be recovered under hypnosis.
Professor Ian Stevenson who was perhaps the world’s greatest expert on reincarnation says about this:
“In my experience, nearly all so-called previous personalities evoked through hypnotism are entirely imaginary and a result of the patient’s eagerness to obey the hypnotist’s suggestion. It is no secret that we are all highly suggestible under hypnosis. This kind of investigation can actually be dangerous. Some people have been terribly frightened by their supposed memories, and in other cases the previous personality evoked has refused to go away for a long time”.
