    Hello! I have been developing a theory, based on an epiphany that I had about a year ago regarding autism and reincarnation. I would like your thoughts, or if you know a parent with an autistic child, maybe you could have them give you some feedback about the theory.
    Background: My husband and I had our child within the first year of marriage. in 2008. I have a background in counseling, so I’m familiar with many disabilities and I have a knack for detecting patterns. He has several disabilities, but that he was showing some signs of autism. No one would say autism, but by the age of two, he was showing signs of Sensory Processing Disorder and Pervasive Development Disorder, commonly associated with Autism.
    Some of his “quirks” are:
    • violent opposition to having his hair cut (common with Autistic children)
    • insomnia (he didn’t sleep a full night until he was four)
    • toileting issues (he was in diapers until he was five)
    • only liked certain food—he would eat Polish Sausage all day if I let him
    • detested oral medicine and any kind of invasive procedure like nail clipping or ear cleaning
    • he would insist on watching movie credits until the very end
    • his first and only word for the first two years of life was “nine” which he overheard a woman say in the store (she was reading off the price of something)
    • he will only wear cotton clothing
    he inspects his bread (no matter what kind) before eating it.

    In April 2014, I was watching a TV interview of Ron Susskind, whose son is Autistic, and he published titled, Life Animated. One of the things he stated was that his son would insist on watching the movie credits roll at the end of a movie. I don’t know if it was a divine message or my brain suddenly connecting all the dots, but I suddenly heard in my head:
    “Autistic children are Holocaust victims.”
    Suddenly, my pattern-loving brain went into hyper-drive and I was connecting the dots: the polish sausage, the refusal of haircuts, the insomnia, the toileting issues, the refusal of oral medicine, the cotton clothing and the first and only word being “nine” which phonetically sounds like the German word “nein” meaning no. The movie credits, I thought, must be connected to the lists that were put up around concentration camps for various reasons, such as work changes, etc., which were symbolic of continual disruption and change. Autistic children commonly dislike change.
    Many autistic children have an obsession with trains. The answer that came to me was that trains represented the possibility of a relative or news about one’s family with arriving trains. The ire of the medical community has been recently raised as more and more parents are refusing to immunize their children in fear of invoking autism. Holocaust victims were often used for medical experiments,as a well-known fact that the invention of aspirin was developed using holocaust victims. This knowledge also explained my son’s opposition to taking medicine or invasive procedures. I don’t believe that the immunizations cause Autism, but I do believe that getting an injection restores a cellular memory of being an experimental subject in the child’s previous life. Can it be avoided? I think that these children, on some spiritual level, chose this disorder for this life for whatever reason. Eventually, something like a moldy piece of bread or an arriving train would have reminded them what their life plan was meant to be for this incarnation. Lastly, fecal smearing and fecal consumption is typical with Autism. The explanation that I promptly received was that not only was there no toilet paper or anything like that, but that some reverted to eating their feces for direly needed food and to abate hunger.
    What are your thoughts on this theory? I have a billion questions for my son, however he is non-verbal. Hence, I ask you. Please let me know.
    Thank you for your input, in advance.

    Hi Sojourner2015


    First of all I must point out I'm not qualified to give any type of medical or physiological options on your son's condition, I can only give my opinion's based on my beliefs in reincarnation .


    It is my opinion very important for you to understand from a reincarnation point of view who your son is


    Those who believe in reincarnation have different opinions on what to call the spiritual side of us that reincarnates. But whatever you want to call it, the spirit reincarnates with memories


    So lets call your son the physical and the spiritual. The spiritual reincarnates. His spirit is not autistic or have any of the other problems you talk about


    It is again my opinion comforting to believe his spirit could not cope with any previous physical bodies experiences he occupied, and that then manifests itself in the next physical body (body's) his spirit will occupy .


    On this point me and most on this forum disagree. They believe as I do the spirit learns from each physical incarnation it has


    Where we disagree is the effects those experiences have on the next physical entity (entities) it occupies. Its all about the evolving spirit, not the physical entities it occupies along the way. To believe our spirits cannot cope with anything in the physical and it effects the next physical entities it occupies is logic based on a physical level and not spiritual. If you believe you sons previous physical life is effecting this then a never ending cycle for your son's spirit has commenced. It would be a never ending cycle for your sons spirit which would mean no physical entity in the future will escape the torture you son's physical body is experiencing. In fact it would get worse and worse,


    The same as everyone on this earth, your son's physical body will die never to return, releasing his spirit to reincarnate and continue to evolve. Your sons spirit will learn plenty from this incarnation


    Wishing you all the best

    here is my one bit of data on the topic


    my sisters kid started to show autism, it got worse over about 6 months, so we took away the TV entirely, cleaned up his food, and made lots of time for very slow play time with personal interaction,


    he came out of it in a few weeks after we started all that.


    at some point when he was young, he said he was a sheep farmer his last life and was tired of being an old man in that life,


    years later he still has no plans of growing up, and we keep telling him that he does not have to for many more years

    When I was reading this post the same thing popped into my head. Nine = Nein. YES!!! It all fits! I don't believe in "cellular memory". But I believe our souls do remember the past life. I think you should contact Carol Bowman directly and talk to her about this. Maybe she can look into it and write a new book. Maybe contact Brian Weiss also.

    Thank you for the comments. I should probably specify that I don't believe all autistic children are holocaust victims, but I believe there is a common thread of patterns that could support this theory, such as lack of eye contact, lack of ego, etc.. I also understand that there are many different theories of Reincarnation, as well. It would be similar to the assumption that all vegetarians hold the same food choices. They don't. Some eat eggs, some don't; some eat fish, some don't, some only eat raw veggies, etc. My interpretation of reincarnation is along the same lines as Edgar Cayce's belief system. I believe that my son's disorder may not be for his spiritual development alone, but for mine as well. I distinctly recall having a dream in college (over 20 yrs ago) of being a young, German soldier who rode a motorcycle along the bombs and bomb lines to make sure they were all connected. Maybe, just maybe, there's a karmic connection in which I must settle the debt for my actions in that life with a Holocaust victim from that previous life. Just a possibility. Thank you again for your insights!

    Argonne1918,


    Thank you, I believe I will contact Ms. Bowman. So many scientific minded professionals, such as Dr. Brian Weiss, Dr. Eben Alexander, etc., have put their professional credentials on the line with their spiritual awakenings. Hopefully, this theory will find the support it needs to awaken the scientific/medical communities to a spiritual solution to a much-confounding disorder.

    Can you explain what you mean by this? It sounds to me like they were placing explosives on a bridge to blow the bridge up. The guy on the motorcycle was checking the wire connections one last time. Is this what you saw? This would have been near the very end of the War in 1945. Bridges on the Rhine River were blown to keep the Allies from crossing into Germany. I think there was a movie called something like "Bridge at Remagen". Here is the article on the bridge.

    In case you don't know, Carol Bowman was herself a Holocaust victim in her last life.

    Hello Sojourner2015,


    I think, as his mother, you are in the best position to know. If I were you, I would trust my instincts. I think you could be on to something. It makes perfect sense to me that his first word would be "no". (Did he use "nine" as a number, or did he use it in refusal?)


    That said, I am sure you have heard the saying: if you have met one person with autism, you have met one person with autism. I, also, would be very hesitant to say that all people with autism were victims, much less holocaust victims, in their last life.


    One quick aside . . . pharmaceuticals were tested, it is true, but aspirin was patented in 1900, tablets in 1915.


    Regarding communication with your son, I have a child with special needs, so I understand how frustrating that can be. I have found that in time, the answers will come, but often not in the way I expected it. Perhaps, try asking him when he is sleeping? And then watch and wait.

    I have also heard that some autistic children seem to have psychic or intuitive abilities. Why not try using telepathy with him and see what happens? Try sending images.

    I personally believe that autism is genetic. I am an autistic person. I am very high functioning in that I work full time and live alone. Still, I have autism.


    I see certain traits in my father. Lots of parents of kids with autism have diagnosed themselves with it after seeing their autistic children.


    I have previously said that I have no past life memories. I have no memories of the Holocaust, or of being in a Stalinist gulag. I do not know why I was born autistic from a reincarnation position. However, I believe autism is genetic.


    Respectfully,


    Andrewx

    I would like to mention in a separate post the importance of getting vaccinated against diseases. The scientific studies that purported to show a correlation between vaccination and autism have been discredited.


    Measles, a very bad disease to get, has been making a comeback. Vaccinations are necessary for good health. The healthcare organization I work for requires employees and volunteers to get influenza shots, at least when flu is in season. Please do not hesitate to get vaccinations, and for your kids to get vaccinations.


    Respectfully,


    Andrewx

    This description is inaccurate in my case I'm afraid, the only symptoms I agree with in my case is the insomnia and the Toileting issues as a small child. But yes I have heard of and come across some picky eatters at the school Autism programs


    Although to give him credit, my past lives regressions tend to be Gory none the less. Are you sure it's not graphic disarmed murder victoms in general or if there is more to it? :/

    A couple things that I would like to answer, in accordance with this theory, are the common issues of autism.


    Lack of Ego is probably the most predominant issue with Autism. The first step in the psychology of the Holocaust was to strip the individuals of a sense of identity by giving numbers, cutting hair, uniforms, etc. Most autistic children do not use or minimally use the first-person pronoun such as "I" or "me". My son is six and still refers to himself in third person. Most ASD children find no interest in looking into mirrors.


    Lack of eye contact is another common issue with Autism. Due to the military-like composition of the concentration camps, the inferiority complex that was generated upon the victims was essential to maintain crowd control and power. Eye contact was not acceptable to this experience between authority and the victims.


    The explanation of the male:female ratio of ASD is 4:1 today, but I would suggest the reason for this male-dominated disorder is by relating it to the fact that 80% of all women and children were immediately sent to termination camps upon arrival, whereby leaving mostly men to experience the horror of the concentration camps.


    Most autistic children experience some sort of Gastrointestinal (GI) problems today.The current trend in dietary solutions for ASD is low protein, no grains and no dairy diets. These diets are proving to show some success with the GI issues associated with autism. Interesting enough, the food served in the concentration camps comprised of low protein, no grains (except for occasional pieces of bread) and no dairy.


    Long-term memory is present in ASD children/adults. I would have to connect this to the fact that victims were on high-alert at all times and answering any kind of questions asked by authority figures could have meant the difference between life and death. Having such a significance upon answering questions required one to keep a keen memory in order to stay alive. Autistic children are known for their acute detail in discussing/explaining matters. Asperger's, IMO, may have been those victims of the Holocaust that were allowed to operate in a somewhat "normal" role within the concentration camps, still suffering the living conditions, but possibly working in a job that gave them some small sense of normalcy, like a kitchen job or accounting job.


    Thank you all for your input. I really appreciate the ccomments.

    My youngest son is autistic. He absolutely loves trains. I think he really likes Thomas the Tank Engine because it's really easy to figure out what those guys are feeling (their facial expressions aren't exactly subtle!). He also has some big issues with food and weight problems. But I think this issue has a lot more to do with mercury in vaccines and genetics (his older brother has strong Asperger tendencies, & so do I and his dad) than any past life issues. But I do think there is something spiritually "special" about these kids. Jenny McCarthy once called them "crystal children" (and herself an "indigo child") and I'd like to think about me and my son along those same terms, as well ... but I'm pretty sure I wasn't a victim of the Holocaust (though I have had some pretty traumatic past lives ...)

    I would just like to add that the reason children with autism often won't wear certain clothing is for sensory reasons.


    Otherwise, I'm hesitant to definitively link reincarnation with any conditions, to be perfectly honest, but I would say I think if there is a link, it could be any number of causes. It's also possible that the PL traumas intensify their difficulties.


    One thing to keep in mind is that autistic individuals have issues with sensory overload, so it's possible that rather than being former victims of a bad event, they were simply formerly from a time or place where they didn't encounter those same problems. Same with socialization and rules.

    in that sense, the mother could be the holocaust victim and the son the one with some to pay in debt from a past life


    or both mother and son might be in debt and while one suffers from the same disabilities inflicted to others, the mother must pay a ddebt by taking good care of someone with the same disabilities she inflicted in someone else


    or any other thing


    the real important part is that, if god is just, all that happens has a reason, and we should learn to make the best of it, maybe it has nothing to do with some bad thing of the two did in a past life, or one of the two suffered in a past life, they are just in need of get together and learn to love each other a little bit more...

    i have three sons who have been diagnosed with autism. Maybe I could share some ideas with you.


    I do not have any memories of a past life but in 1983 i went to West Germany and I felt such a connection to that place. I have never felt like I was "home" before. I still feel like I always want to go home but I don't know where it is.


    I think its possible that I myself could be a holocaust survivor. I remember in school reading about it and i could not bear to read the details. I would literally be sick to my stomach. I feel an incredible amount of empathy for refugees; I am drawn to them and always want to know more.


    Another thing that has always confused me...I have a great mistrust of blue eyes (even though i am the only one of four siblings who does not have blue eyes...i am the different one). It's almost a "hatred" of blue eyes. I have always wondered why. I don't have any reason to feel that way in this lifetime.


    Always been attracted to darker skin, brown eyes, black hair. i dunno...i'm reaching here


    Also was just given the book "Life Animated" this past Christmas
