SAL BECOMES A TURTLE AND MURDERS A MAN
A few weeks ago, Stern Show writer Sal Governale announced that he is a believer in past lives and it's something he'd like to explore.
Hypnotist Scott Schmaren came in the morning to 'regress' Sal and explore what happened to him in the past.
First up, he took Sal WAY back. Sal found himself standing in sand, looking at mountains with pterodactyls flying around them.
"I'm a turtle,' he said quietly. "I'm a big turtle and I'm pregnant."
Sal the Turtle was digging a hole in the sand for his eggs. Sal was worried about his eggs. He wasn't sure that he'd chosen the right spot, but he was doing the best he could.
In a more recent life, Sal found himself in Ireland in a large stone room. He saw a monk with a red beard and bunch of torture equipment. He worked for the church as an altar boy and had thrown a brick off the roof – killing someone down below. It was now his time to be tortured. Scott pulled Sal out before things got too brutal.
Finally, Sal was pure energy, zooming around in space. He knew he was supposed to make up his mind and choose a path, but he loved the feeling of just being energy. "It feels wonderful."
Onto his current life, Scott took Sal back to a beautiful memory from his childhood. He was ten years old and his family was barbecuing. His grandparents were sitting on lawn chairs and his dad was grilling. Sal had torn a little piece of sheetrock off the shed in the years and was drawing with the sheetrock like it was chalk.
When he spoke about his grandfather bringing him a little paper bag full of candy, Sal broke down in tears.
Howard loved then while he could've been a prince or a hero, he was a turtle. Howard's theory was that hypnotism was just accessing a dream-like state, so these were nothing more than Sal's dreams.
