A description of the experience
Other lives, past selves [A Jungian Psychotherapist discovers Past Lives] – Dr Roger Woolger
There is not an unbroken esoteric or underground tradition in the West through which teachings such as reincarnation were passed down. All we have are sporadic revivals, usually ending in persecution. It is true that in the twelfth century the Cathars imported the belief from the Middle East, but after their extermination in 1210-1244, Christian orthodoxy prevailed and it completely disappeared.
