Aired on 01/03/1994 | CC
As a young child, Sarah was so afraid of fires that she kept a bag with her favorite dolls under her bed, ready for a quick escape. Her mother had her try past-life regression therapy to try to get to the bottom of her phobia. Through regression, Sarah says, she had a vivid recollection of her own traumatic death while trying to escape a farmhouse fire a century before. "From what I saw, death was over quickly," she says. "It was probably 30 seconds of panicking and being afraid, but then it was over."
