Have you seen my interview on Mama Glow? Here is an excerpt:
Is it common for children to talk about past lives?
It is very common. Children often speak of other incarnations. Sometimes, as with James Leininger who remembered life as an American fighter pilot who died in combat in World War II, these memories come up in dreams, often nightmares. Other children may experience a spontaneous recall. They can tell a short vignette about something that happened to them in another life.
How should parents respond to stories their children share about past lives?
Simply listen and ask open-ended questions. The worst thing a parent could do would be to dismiss what their child is sharing, deny its validity or tell them to never talk about these things again.
How would a parent know if their child is having a past life memory or making up a story?
There is a different quality to the stories told from other lives. They come out of the blue and sound like bizarre, uncomfortable things for the child to say. Also, they are usually told very much as a matter of fact. Their sharing is not up for a discussion – it is simply a statement the child is making.
Do you believe babies or children remember their pre-birth state?
One day, a father was driving with his little girl was in the back seat. Out of the blue, she said, “Daddy, I used to be an angel and God send me to you to watch over you.” Hearing this shook him to his core. He told me that he felt as if time had stopped. He knew she was not speaking metaphorically. Little children have not been fully trained in the ability to see only what the material world affirms as real. They are still very much aware of the world of Spirit and of the divinity of their soul.
How can one find out about the past lives of their child?
At a time when they are calmly sitting around with you, simply ask them who they were before they came to you. Ask them if they had any other mommies or daddies. Ask them why they came to you and ask them what it was like when they were in your belly. Trust your intuition, imagination and ask. The answers may surprise and delight you.
Have your children spoken to you about their past lives? I look forward to hearing your thoughts in the comments below.
My daughter often spoke of her past lives. First I noticed as a small toddler she would put dots on her dolls foreheads. Like Indians in India .. Then once when I was putting her to bed as a three year old.. She said ” I don’t have to listen to you, you are not my real mother, my real mother is dead! Shocked, after not only birthing this child but nursing her for 22 months, I cried , thinking we were having bonding problems. Later on I started to think she remembered previous existences, since she told me that horses bite her because in a previous time she was a cowboy with big muscles and was mean to the horses.
She is now 30 and remembers being other people as well.
I think it may be somewhat genetic since I had recall as a child as well…
Hi Stroyers! I love what you are sharing! And how great that she has not lost the connection with her other lives as she grew up. You feeling comfortable with remembering your own past lives has allowed her to think of it as normal and keep that connection and ability for herself too. Thank you for this inspiration!
My granddaughter is 5 and has always had bazaar things to say. She too tells me her real mom is dead and that her name is Jessica. I used to be her grandmother and we were in a fire. Right before Thanksgiving she was tell us that she was evil and that America was evil and that they ate people. I thought she was crazy. I bought a Kindle book on American History and sure enough there was a battle and they did just that. This has been going on ever since she could talk over the years. I do ask open ended questions and she tell me a little bit and then doesn’t want to talk about it anymore. I really do feel connected to her and that I know her thoughts and feelings. Of course there is other strange things she says also.
This is so amazing! I would love to hear more. If you want to share more about what other things she says, I am eager to hear them.
My question is if there’s ever been any tests done, to verify if night terrors are actually children recalling events and/or death from previous lives.
This is such a great question and I wonder myself. Please let me know what you discover.
