    The Past Life Forum is a private forum that is open to the public. A person MUST register and become a member in order to post. When a member registers, they are agreeing to the rules of the forum. Failure to follow these rules could result in legal action should that failure be disruptive to the forum. PLF is a privately owned forum that is open to the public.

    MISSION STATEMENT: "This bulletin board is for the free and open discussion of topics related to reincarnation and children's past lives. We encourage all views—even those of people who don't believe in reincarnation—to be shared and argued in a civil manner and with common courtesy and respect for all participants.

    Material that is, in the opinion of the administrator, knowingly false, defamatory, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, threatening, blatantly commercial or excessive, an invasion of a person's privacy, or in violation of the law is prohibited and will be deleted. Individuals who repeatedly disrupt the civility of the discussions may be barred from participating."

    Your participation on the forum is welcomed, but please follow the rules.

    This forum is made possible by Steve and Carol Bowman, and is meant to be used only for the discussion of topics related to reincarnation -- especially cases concerning small children. It is important that moderators maintain the mission of the forum and we reserve the right to remove questionable posts from the forum without notification. Please see the Forum Posting Guidelines for a complete list of allowable topics.

    The first purpose of this Forum is to provide a safe, friendly, compassionate, and responsive forum for FAMILIES OF CHILDREN EXPERIENCING PAST LIFE MEMORIES.

    The second purpose is to provide a friendly and quality space for serious and personal discussion of reincarnation. A place to think, debate and question.

    Sharing experiences and research, making new friends who have the same or similar beliefs is also important. Debating issues and points of view - when done in a civil manner is also encouraged.

    PREACHING- that your way is the only way {i.e. Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Scientology, even spirit teachings via individual experiences which is presented as prophecy} will not be allowed. It is important to remember we have many members from many different nations. Please when you post responses to others - do so in such a way that you are not claiming to have all the answers; or that your way is the only way.

    If moderation feels that you are posting in order to preach your beliefs - the posts will be deleted.

    Thread Topics - reincarnation ONLY

    Recently we have had a lot of new posts regarding OBE's (Out of Body Experiences), auras, animals and their souls.

    Moderation has posted several times in the forum issues section to PLEASE stay on topic. This is a reincarnation forum. Other paranormal topics need to be addressed elsewhere. The forum Mission Statement clearly outlines the guidelines.

    This forum has been here for ten years, and although in the past other spiritual topics were included - we have recently (last February) refocused and directed the forum to be very specific.

    Please honor the Bowman's wishes; directly relate all posts to JUST reincarnation and past life topics. The moderation team has the JOB of constantly pulling these off topic posts and although we feel bad doing so - it is our job to keep the forum focused.

    Guidelines:

    The Past Life Forum is a private forum open to the public. It is a rich and valuable resource for anyone interested in any aspect of past lives and reincarnation. You can delve into discussions on any topic related to:

    • reincarnation and past lives
    • children's past lives
    • same-family reincarnation
    • the scientific basis for reincarnation
    • past life regression
    • past life dreams
    • personal reincarnational memories

    The original intent of this board is to be an open and non-commercial place to discuss and share about children's past lives and reincarnation. Steve and Carol have requested that we all, moderators and members, work to keep the board focused and messages on topic. Because of all the extra traffic, it is now necessary to become more vigorous in enforcing the policy to preserve the original intent of the board.

    In accordance with the Bowman's wishes, we do not permit signature links, posts or threads containing the following:
    • psychic impressions of other people's past lives
    • channeling spirits
    • advertising or promotion of any kind for any products or services
    • preaching -{i.e. Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, or spirit teachings presented as prophecy}
    • occult, unconventional or conventional religious topics (unless the topic somehow connects to a past life/reincarnation issue),
    • current politics
    • animal reincarnation
    • alien and other world past or future lives, or abductions
    • dreams that are clearly not past life related

    Forum Staff reserves the right to remove any posts containing inappropriate content – without warning or explanation to the poster.

    Continual disregard for the rules will result in membership status being changed to probationary. If you have not read the Mission Statement of the forum, please take the time to do so.

    Thank you,

    Forum Staff

    Carol Bowman's Past Life Forum has been in existence since 1997. The Mission Statement and Guidelines for Posting help the moderation team maintain it's longevity.


    The Past Life Forum is the only place we know of on the Internet that offers a safe and supportive environment for parents and grandparents to ask questions and get informed answers about children who appear to be remembering a past life. This was the original reason Carol and Steve Bowman created the Forum eleven years ago. And although it’s grown to cover the full gamut of reincarnation topics, Carol and Steve and the moderating team still place the highest priority on welcoming and helping families who have questions and stories to share about their children.


    Membership is Internationally based. The moderation team is as well. We volunteer to help make sure the forum is maintained and running smoothly.


    We ask that you please be mindful of your choice of words when posting. Especially when responding to another member. Help us create a community of understanding, compassion, and kindness as we help others learn about reincarnation and what remembering past lives means to us all.
