Reincarnation Case of Napoleon Bonaparte | Jack Welch


Proposed by: Walter Semkiw, MD, 2004

Affirmed by Spirit Guide or Spirit Being Ahtun Re in a Ryerson-Semkiw Reincarnation Research Session

From: Origin of the Soul and the Purpose of Reincarnation & Origin of the Soul Expanded E-Book

Article by: Walter Semkiw, MD & Judith Shipstad

I had proposed the reincarnation match between Napoleon and Jack Welch, which was confirmed by Ahtun Re and included this case in my book Origin of the Soul and the Purpose of Reincarnation, which was first published in 2008.

A supporter of, Judith Shipstad, expressed particular interest in the Napoleon | Welch case, which upon further investigation stems from a past lifetime that she had with Napoleon, in which he served as an administrator for him. Judith, upon my request, wrote a brief analysis comparing Napoleon and Jack Welch. This narrative is provided below:

Correlations Between Napoleon & Jack Welch

“Yes, any number of things correspond between Jack Welch and Napoleon. Napoleon was a military and administrative genius who was trained as an artilleryman and came to power in a bloodless coup. Consider the quotes below:

‘Having been in the field, I had a strong prejudice against most of the headquarters staff.’

‘In those days, I was throwing hand grenades…’

‘We were playing as if our lives depended on it, diving into hedges and sweating bullets.’

‘It sent a clear message…Sergeants weren’t going to be shot while generals and colonels could continue on as if nothing happened.’

Remarkably, the above quotes are not Napoleon’s, but are lifted directly from Jack Welch’s biography. Notable for their military-oriented metaphors, these remarks were made in regard to Welch’s work at General Electric.

Both men demonstrated organizational ability, intelligence, energy, attention to detail, confidence, competitiveness and an ability to inspire others. As youngsters, both evinced a distaste for ‘being on the losing side.’

Napoleon aspired to wrest India from the British and reap for France the benefits of its acquisition. The expedition to Egypt was commenced with this same purpose in mind, but that goal was never realized. Welch, however, proudly relates that under his leadership, GE developed extensive business relations with India and found India to be a rich source of talent. I especially note the photo of Welch in India, thoughtfully clutching to his breast a journal titled ‘India,’ as a prominent Indian colleague holds him in conversation. That picture is worth a million bucks–Napoleon indeed has finally conquered India!

Notable also is the photo of Welch from Welch’s autobiography which shows him in India meeting the Queen of England. Britain was the constant foe of France during Napoleon’s life; now Welch has not only exploited the benefits of their above-mentioned former colony, he is a personality and a power to be reckoned with in the business world–hence his presentation to the Queen. He is shown in profile, and though few readers will be aware of it, they are seeing the virtual profile of Bonaparte.

Both men had mothers of strong character whom they fondly respected; both had three primary women in their lives. Napoleon had two marriages and a significant mistress, while Welch has had three wives.

Both men were slightly short of stature and had rather thin legs. Their hair lines were similar. Napoleon played a card game called whist; as a youngster, Welch played canasta with his mother.

Welch has a stutter, but I haven’t read anything about Napoleon having a speech impediment. If anyone is accusing Napoleon of a stutter this late in the game, I’d really question it. He is said to have had a tick in one shoulder and eye.

Napoleon’s speaking voice was described as not deep, but well-modulated. Welch’s voice is not deep, and as for well-modulated I’m not sure–YouTube videos reveal that in his advanced age, his voice is a little hoarse, as though he has smoked too much. If Welch is a smoker, that would correspond with Napoleon’s well-known snuff habit.

As I look at the pictures of Welch with his chairmen of the board and golf buddies, I can’t help but feel I am looking at a karmic group. Those guys were probably the Marshals of France and First Empire generals.

Just for fun, from perusing the family pictures, I wager the following:

Welch’s mother = Mme. Mere, Letizia Bonaparte (Napoleon’s mother)

Welch’s daughter Anne = Hortense de Beauharnais (Napoleon’s stepdaughter and sister-in-law)

Welch’s son John = Franz, Duke of Reichstadt (Napoleon’s son by wife Marie-Louise)

Welch’s second wife Jane = Marie, Countess Walewska (Napoleon’s mistress)”

I thank Judith for her analysis and I will review her proposed family reincarnation matches with Ahtun Re.

Principles of Reincarnation & Understanding Past Lives

Physical Resemblance from One Lifetime to Another: A marked resemblance exists between Napoleon and Jack Welch.

Past Life Talent: As Judith’s analysis describes, both men have been born leaders. In Origin of the Soul, it is discussed that military leaders, as they progress spiritually, lean away from careers that involve violence and shift to leadership roles in business or politics. Ahtun Re has predicted that Napoleon | Welch will reincarnate in the future and use his leadership skills to found significant charitable organizations.

Change of Nationality from One Incarnation to Another: Napoleon was French, while Welch was born in the United States.

Renewal of Relationships through Reincarnation: Judith has hypothesized a number of relationships that have carried through to the present time. I will check on these proposals in a future session with Kevin Ryerson.
