In this article we will be taking a look at the Bridey Murphy recordings taken by Morey Bernstein – was Virginia Tighe the reincarnated soul of an Irish woman from the 19th century?
Let’s take a closer look…
A Man Called Morey
Our report starts off with a young lady named Virginia Tighe, and her close friend named Morey Bernstein, who claimed to have possibly the most powerful hypnotic powers on the planet!
One day, both Bernstein and Tighe were pretty bored, so they decided to see if the hypnotist could put his friend ‘under’ with his powers. Tighe ended up being quite a good subject – and Bernstein managed to take her back to her early adulthood, to her adolescence, and to her childhood.
Before long Bernstein realised that Tighe was probably the most susceptible subject he had ever come across.
He decided that he’d attempt to push her a little further…to see if he could take her into a pre-birth state.
The Bridey Murphy Reincarnation Case
Bernstein started to push, and without warning, Tighe began to answer his questions in a thick Irish accent. His friend disappeared and a woman named Bridey Murphy began to shine through. Apparently she had been alive in 19th century Ireland.
After the session Bernstein informed Tighe about the transformation and she was pretty shocked – she had never been to Ireland and she was unable to fake the accent.
They both came to the decision that Tighe should be put under again, and they should document the whole process along the way. They conducted further hypnosis sessions and used the tapes and documents to build up a character profile of this Irish lady.
Cork in 1798
Their research under hypnosis revealed that Bridey Murphy was an Irish lady who was born in Cork in 1798. When she was just seventeen, she fell madly in love with a lawyer and they married in Belfast.
She had lived an uneventful life until her death in 1864.
She also told Bernstein that she had experienced elements of the afterlife, and was able to travel out of her dead body and attend her own funeral from a distance. She then claimed that the afterlife was “neither a place of sadness nor of happiness”.
The Media and Bridey Murphy
Something slipped, and it didn’t take long for the media to pounce on the case – Cork and Belfast were instantly taken over by an army of reporters looking for more information on Bridey Murphy.
Weeks went by and the media seemed to be struggling with the case – they could not uncover any official reports linked to Bridey Murphy ever existing.
Bernstein’s case notes had indicated that Murphy had lived in a wooden house, but the searching media had soon discovered that all the houses in this area were made of stone during the period Bridey claimed to reside there.
Some of Bridey’s memories did fit local landmarks in the area, but all in all, the media did not believe in the story any longer.
The Bridey Murphy Recordings
The media had hit a brick wall with the Bridey Murphy recordings and documentation…so they began to look into the woman behind the regression herself – Virginia Tighe.
It didn’t take them long to discover that Tighe had lived opposite a Irish woman named Bridie Murphy Corkell when she was a child…so this case was obviously a hoax…or was it?
What do you think – fact or fiction?
Was this a possible case of reincarnation, or a clever trick?
