    My 3yo for the past month or so has been talking about the moose breaking down the door to get him. He's terrified of the dark, "because the moose will come". We have no moose here. He may have seen a moose a couple of times in the zoo, but it was in no way scary. I'm thinking he's remember his death in a past life. I've asked him where he was and he told me "in the orange car" and that the moose broke the door and got him. He says it's dark and he's scared. He's talked about what I think are other lives before, but this one seems to be causing his fear of the dark. He has to be touching me or he cries himself to sleep. Any ways to help him get over the fear? We've talked about how there are no moose here and that our house is safe even if there were some outside.

    They don't always get the facts right, especially if they were really young when they died. This sounds like he was in a car that struck a deer or moose on the road at night. "Road kill". A large animal may have caused the car to crash or roll off a cliff, hit a tree, etc. The car indicates this may have happened within the last 10 or 20 years. If you are interested you might try searching the internet for a news story that lines up with what he has told you.

    He says he was alone and big so I assume an adult. I think it's possible for a moose to break a car door. They are extremely big and powerful, but going through the window is more likely. He keeps insisting door though.

    Moose have been known to attack cars before. Usually happens during rutting season, when the male moose may mistake a car for a rival. They usually charge once, figure out their mistake, and leave. It is possible for a moose to accidentally flip over a small car, though that is rare.


    A likely scenario would be: moose charges car, hits the door, and an antler comes through the window. Your child, ap123, may be too young to differentiate between the actual door of a car and the window in the door.

    The window of the door is still probably considered the door. The windshield (where most moose hit go through) wouldn't. I haven't been able to locate a case that would be a possibility with the details. If anyone sees any if you could post or pm me I'd appreciate it.

    Hi ap123,


    I'm going to suggest something else. It's possible he is referring to someone or something in another language. It sounds like moose to you. It could be a word in Chinese, Korean, I don't know. But someone well versed in languages might be able to help. It could also be a gang name, or a tribal name. If he is crying himself to sleep and the memory is traumatic for him, I would highly suggest you contact Carol Bowman. If you'd like I can contact her for you. Just let me know.

    Sure that would be great. I'd love to know how to help him. He tells me know, "the moose can't come here", but he's still scared to go to sleep without touching me and screams if he has to stay in his bed (with a nightlight and his twin brother in the room).

    I'll just add here. He calls bananas "manyas" There's definitely the y in there. Anyone know if that is banana in any language?

    All I know is that Manyas is a city in Turkey. Nothing to do with bananas.

    That's what he calls bananas. Not sure where he gets it from.

    I'm running it through google translate. One thing to keep in mind, and this is actually something someone on here (I forget who) pointed out to me, that we may not be hearing the word correctly, or know how to spell it since it is foreign. In any case, I'll paste results I think sound close to "manyas." I will say that going through it, "bananas" seems to be a fairly universal word?


    Hausa: Ayaba. Mostly mentioning depending on how he says "manyas." (You mention the "y" is definitely in there.)


    Hawaii: Maia.


    Maori (New Zealand): Panana.


    Samoan: Fa'i.


    I kept the Samoan and Maori because it's possible that's leading somewhere. They are all Pacific languages same language, there's something about "Manyas" that sounds like it comes from one of the Pacific Islands. Keeping in mind that google translate doesn't cover every single language. Of course, I don't think there's a lot of moose running around Hawaii, but it could be another life...


    Welsh: Manana or Mananas.


    I wasn't able to find any cases with cars and moose either. Most of them seem to have had happy endings, or at least non-fatal ones But keep listening and looking, and see if he indicates any specific location, too.


    (Also, I wonder if there isn't a fruit or even an object similar to bananas that he's remembering? How old is he? Young enough to maybe confuse words? Could simply be that "Manyas" reminds him of something that doesn't necessarily have to do with bananas.)


    ETA: Oops, re-read and saw you mentioned that he's three. Does he mix up words generally? I believe some kids do even at that age, but I'm not really sure.

    No he doesn't mix up words. He's extremely advanced in communication. He said "hungee" at 8w old!

    Okay, well do any of the languages I listed seem they could be related to his memories? Has he ever expressed interest in those places?


    Also, I wasn't trying to imply he's not an advanced talker. But sometimes kids associate words with different things, because they're kids. Especially if they're basically translating from another life. (Also bearing in mind in that life, he might have used a playful term for certain things.)

    I wouldn't think PI as I don't think they would have moose (or anything close), but I guess it could be another life. Don't know if they have moose outside NA?

    Keep in mind that there are moose in Europe which they call "Elk."

    The same child has started talking about "his mom" and not referring to me. When he says that I'll ask him, "Do you mean me?" and he'll tell me no every time he uses "my mom" and not mommy or mama. He told me how he spilled beef on the floor and "his mom" had to clean it up. I asked if he meant me and he told me no. I asked if it was in our house and he said no "in the brown house" (we've never lived in a brown house). I asked him his name with his other mom and he said he didn't know. I think he has more coming back, but not getting everything. We'll see. If they are remembering living as a child does that usually mean they died as a child?

    Just let him talk about it when he is in the 'mood'. Little kids will often come out with things when they are in a sleepy state, like riding in the back of the car, or at bed time or bath time. Don't push. Try not to ask too many direct questions, like what was the name etc.

    Just listen and go like 'Mmm hmmm. That's interesting. What happened then? Aha... Oh I see ' and so on and encourage him to just talk about it in a relaxed way without pressure, just like he was talking about any old thing, without creating any drama about it. This kind of thing is very normal, but making a fuss about it will often cause them to clam up because they think they have done something 'wrong'. Write it down later on. He may find it very interesting when he gets older.

    Just having a safe place to talk about it usually helps a lot. Obviously lots of kisses and cuddles can be very reassuring, without trying to squash or repress these kinds of things too strongly. Little kids often have a lot of fears and anxieties about various past life traumas, but it's natural and will work itself out fairly naturally when they feel safe and secure and feel they can talk about it with someone who loves them and will keep them safe. It's not anything to worry about. It happens a lot more than most people think.

    The moose could it be an austrian name "demus"???

    Or ancient german surname "moose"
    https://www.houseofnames.com/moose-family-crest

    The brown houses could be typical german/ austrian wooden "chalet", unless they really painted the house really in brown.

    Could it be his cute way of saying bananas "manyas"

    My eldest son also advanced in communication, but he said spongebobs "pompos". So i thought it could b possible he created his cute word bananas = banas = mañas

    HOWEVER, if he say ñ, this sounds only spoken by latino/spanish/portuguese speakers
