And, in today’s ‘woo’ news:
Belinda Ramirez of the fine state of Texas claims that because of her past life as a emaciated Aztec woman, she is addicted to food in the here and now.
Ramirez—who, according to her Facebook page, graduated with a degree in mathematics from Texas State University and works at the Unlimited Thought Life Enrichment Center—claims to have struggled her entire life with food addiction. She says she never understood why others around her were so willing to waste foodstuffs when she had an aversion to seeing food in the trash.
But then one day, Ramirez took the leap; she went to a therapist who specializes in past life regression.
She was regressed to a lifetime in which she was an Aztec woman, which I imagine to be a hell of a lot like a mashup between Scorsese’s Kundun and Gibson’s Apocalypto. Food was scarce. “I was skin and bones, lying on the ground, taking my last breath, and the sun was shining bright,” Ramirez told the local station.
