In April of 2007, I wrote a newspaper column about a woman in Toronto named Sherrie Lea Laird who had been deemed to be the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe by a psychiatrist who specialized in hypnotic regression therapy.
It turned out to be one of the major turning points in my life.
At age 11, Sherrie was wondering about the beauty mark above her lip (similar to Marilyn Monroe) when her aunt began singing, "A kiss on the hand may be quite continental, but diamonds are a girl's best friend." When she asked her aunt about the song, which seemed so familiar, her aunt explained it was sung by Marilyn Monroe in a movie called GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDS.
"It was just like an explosion in my mind," Sherrie declared. Even though she didn't even know what Marilyn Monroe looked like, she began having dreams and flashbacks about Monroe.
By the 1990s, Sherrie had become a rising pop singer in Toronto, Canada. Her song "No Ordinary Love" had been at the top of the music charts in Canada and Europe. But she remained traumatized by feelings of being haunted by an internal demon.
In 1998, Sherrie discovered Dr. Finkelstein's website and e-mailed him concerning her repressed feelings and anxieties about being possessed by another person.
Dr. Adrian Finkelstein is a graduate of the prestigious Menninger School of Psychiatry, a former chief of the outpatient of psychiatry at Mount Sinai Medical Center, a former assistant professor of psychiatry at Chicago's Rush Medical School and served as assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at UCLA, where he taught past-life regression therapy. Now in private practice, Dr. Finkelstein has been a pioneer and expert in past-life regression therapy for 30 years, and has performed over 5,000 past-life regressions. He has also created and patented a Past and Present Lives -- Iris Recognition Comparison Test (PPL-IRCT).
Sherrie and Dr. Finkelstein worked together, on and off, for more than eight years. Soon, Dr. Finkelstein became convinced that Sherrie Lea Laird was the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe.
In addition of many sessions of video-taped past-life regressions in a somnambulistic hypnotic state, other scientific analytic methods were also conducted, including bone structure, voice patterns, handwriting analysis, personality traits, linguistics, eyes, etc.
Under hypnosis, Sherrie revealed a multitude of things about Marilyn Monroe, many of which could not have been known by anyone except those close to Monroe or by Marilyn herself.
"The more evidence I gathered the harder it was to disbelieve." Finkelstein said. "Not only are there physical similarities between Sherrie and Marilyn, the details she was able to provide were just phenomenal."
In June and July of 2005, famous American medium Kevin Ryerson confirmed that Sherrie Lea Laird is indeed the only true linear reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe.
Sherrie is a singer – Marilyn Monroe played a singer named Cherie in the movie BUS STOP. They each had an Aunt Anne, have similar bone structures, mannerisms and hand-writing techniques, share the same astrological moon nodes, and so on.
Dr. Finkelstein wrote the book MARILYN MONROE RETURNS – THE HEALING OF A SOUL which was the basis for the Sherrie Lea Laird mystique. He and Sherrie have appeared on many TV shows, including Geraldo Rivera Live, The Scarborough Report, Inside Edition, etc.
"Marilyn Monroe is not back because she was famous, she's back because she was human." Sherrie Lea Laird
In April of 2007, I met Sherrie Lea Laird on the Internet when she responded to my newspaper column. We soon became friends.
When I do a Tarot reading, Sherrie is represented as the Queen of Swords, her signifier card. The Queen of Swords is intensely perceptive, quick and confident -- a woman of strong character. It is amazing how many times she turns up in one of my personal Tarot readings.
Sherrie is a singer who spends much of her time promoting animal rights and exposing the secretive agendas of global elitists who covertly rule the world, including the British Monarchy.
I absolutely, ridiculously love you, Sher -- XOXO, Bret
