In 1996, Walter embarked on researching a possible past life of his own. In 2001, he presented his reincarnation research to the International Asso nation of Regression Research and Therapies (IARRT). About a year later, he was elected to the Board of Directors for IARRT.
Walter was the first to use inverted images to better appreciate facial architecture from one lifetime to another. He also noted that people reincarnate in groups to be reunited with people known in past lives and Dr. Semkiw created the ReincarnationResearch.com website and Reincarnation Research Facebook page, which has over 100,000 followers, and he posted the Evidence of Reincarnation YouTube video, which has over 6 million views.
Walter’s first book, Return of the Revolutionaries, was published in 2003 and focused on research into his own past life. He later published Born Again, in which key Ian Stevenson cases are presented that support the 10 Principles of Reincarnation. Born Again also features the Anne Frank reincarnation case.
Origin of the Soul and the Purpose of Reincarnation was first published in 2006. Both Born Again and Origin of the Soul have been expanded over the years, published internationally and are available worldwide.
