I have just finished reading Carol's book - 'Return from Heaven'. What a truly amazing and inspiring book it is. But one question still remains for me. What happens to these children after the age of about 7? It seems that they forget their previous life memories. Is that always the case? Is it that when the child reaches school age, that other people and influences change their way of thinking? Or is it that we as parents or relations to the child are only given a brief glimpse and a reassurance that their soul has returned from heaven for our own needs and healing purposes? I would really love to know how these families in the book are going now. If the child sometimes has dreams or flashes, or if he or she never remembers any of the things they spoke about when they were young. I suppose the question here is, did the soul return and is given a second chance, and can therefore be a different person this time on earth, or did the soul enter the body of the child temporarily on different occasions with the child's own soul, so it could tell his or her parents that they are there with them and are aways watching over them? I ask this question because with each of the cases, the child's speach and demeanour changes when they need to pass a message on. And finially does the child feel as if they are indeed that person they are talking about as they continue to get older? I wonder if any of the children in the book have been spoken to about the possibility that they are the reincarnation of a loved one by their parent at an older age, or if once the memories have faded, so to are the discussions of reincarnation between parent and child. If there is anyone who believes they are the reincarnation of a previous soul, please feel free to answer my questions. I would really love to know.
