Hi everyone, I've cut my story into several posts, because it is so long. I do apologise! I'm currently in my thirties, but I would love to share my story of remembering a past life as a small child, so that it can be of use for parents whose little one is talking about a previous life. I would love for it to be a gentle reminder of why it is so important to take your child seriously and talk to them about their past life AND about this life. My parents did not take my memory seriously and in turn I didn't take them seriously as guides for this life, nor did I take my current life and body very seriously. I think the world of my parents. They are gentle and kind people. They still don't feel like my parents though - not even today. I hope that any parents reading my story will be encouraged to talk to their child, even if it is difficult to do so or if it goes against everything you believe(d) in. Your bond can only improve. And their bond with their life and body can only improve also. I really hope you will! I apologise for any spelling and grammar errors, because English is not my native language. ----- I recently talked to my parents about my early childhood, to see if they remembered me talking about my previous life at all. They didn't. They told me that I always seemed very interested in the topic of reincarnation, but I never talked about any specifics. My parents remember me as an exceptionally bright, talkative kid, with an amazing memory. I often spoke with wisdom that seemed beyond my years. They also remember me as someone who seemed a little odd to them. I somehow never fit in with the other family members. They sometimes thought I was like a cuckoo's chick! They loved me for the eccentric kid I was, but they never quite understood me. They were very correct in saying I had a very good memory. I remember everything from the age of about 2 years old. Including how often I spoke or tried to speak to them about my previous life. In fact, these moments of great frustration - trying to talk to them, but not being heard - and my recurring nightmares about a certain moment in my previous life - are all I can remember of my previous life at all. As per usual for all of us (it seems), my memories have faded. They started to fade when I was about 7 and I don't think I've remembered anything about it since age 9. All I have now are memories OF remembering and trying to do something with the memory in this current life.
