    I don't know if this story falls into children's pl memories, because it's not about a pl memory but about the period between the lives I apologize if I opened the thread in the wrong place :(

    What prompted me to open it is one story I read here - about a girl named Lottie. Among other things, she said that when she died she became dust and went to many places. But then the dust came back together and she acme Lottie. When her mother asked her what was she doing while she was dead, she answered she was preparing to be Lottie.

    Now, I'd like to share my own story from when I was about the same age as Lottie.

    Ever since I was a very small child (around 3-4 years old, though it might be possible that it started earlier) I was obsessed with one question - where did I come from? I used to ask my parents over and over again and they used to answer me that I came from mommy’s belly to which I would respond “Yes, but before that. Where was I before?”. They could not answer me.

    My grandmother tried to answer me in a Christian way (I was born Orthodox Christian) saying that I was in heaven with angels where God created me. I tried to imagine that, but in my mind I could not visualize any angel. Instead, I visualized a place where I was prior to my birth as something similar to a waiting room, where there were many of us waiting to be born. Non of us had gender nor age, we were just people waiting to be born. I also had a feeling that I was somewhere else before, but since it was my time to be born I had to come to these people and wait with them. I also remember seeing people whose time for birth had come jumping down (I do not know where) while I was thinking to myself “Well, it’s not my time yet, I’ll have to wait a bit longer”. This place, a waiting room of a sort, was crowded and I did not know other people who were waiting with me. I was anxious to be born and could not wait for my time to jump like all others.

    That sounds like descriptions I have read about. I think Michael Newton relates stories like that in "Life between Lives". It sounds very plausible to me.

    I remember watching a documentary by Dr Raymond Moody; there was a man who experienced NDE. While he was in coma, he said he floated around the hospital and was able to communicate only with newborn babies and the ones that were coming down to be born. Sounds like "jumping down" to me.

    I agree with you on many levels. Firstly, I asked the same question of people as a child, and could never find satisfaction with any answers given. I guess that's why we're all here now, we've finally found a satisfying answer to our question.


    Second, my son has referred to this place as "baby land," and has told me that he could see down to earth much like looking through a window. I believe I have read similar reasoning in either Weiss or Newton's books, but this certainly came from the mouth of my son at some point.

    Several of the children on the "Ghost Within My Child" episodes told their parents they watched them from heaven before they were born. One boy told his mother he watched her riding her blue bike. She said she had a blue tricycle when she was 5 years old. But there were no photos of it and she had never talked about it.

    Argonne, Thats pretty surprising that a soul waiting to be born would track his future mother since she was at the age of 5. I would think that womans future child would probably be an elderly person who would die within the next 15 or 20 years.

    I think linear time has no meaning on the other side, and the amount of earth years a soul spends between incarnation varies. Perhaps the soul passed to the other side long ago, and has been waiting for the right body and mother to become available. I read the other day that there are "waiting lists" and competition for some bodies. Souls get "bumped" just like for airline flights. I thought it was an interesting notion. What do you think, Obie?

    I remember when my youngest brother was a kid, he used to tell my mother how he was sat in a queue, then he chose our mother and went he was ready jumped through a hole in the sky and into her tummy. The memory always makes us chuckle - my brother has such weird and wonderful ideas sometimes we say no-one but our mother would ever have tolerated him so long!

    I've had at least a dozen cases reported to me from parents about their children's memories of the time before they were born. I believe I mentioned a few of them in my second book in the chapter "Choosing A Life". I may have mentioned one or two in my first book, but I honestly can't remember without looking it up!


    Some of the children recalled events in their parents' lives before conception. It was if they were trailing their prospective parents, and reported events in the parents' lives that the parents had even forgotten about. Others remember souls waiting with them--sometimes deceased grandparents. In her book, Soul Trek, Elisabeth Hallett mentions a few of these cases of grandparents "escorting" souls to their births. The children recognized the grandparents from family photos they saw when they were old enough to talk about it.


    One case I recall is of two cousins who remembered wanting to be born at the same time. But they "were told" by a guide that they had to wait and come at different times. (That one is in my second book.)


    There is a poignant story in my second book about an Olympic wrestler, Dave Schultz, who was murdered by John DuPont. As a young child, Dave informed his father that he was told that he had to come to Earth to pass a test, and that he wouldn't be here long. When Dave was murdered, these words came back to his father and comforted him.


    It seems that children who have no religious training, refer to "heaven" when they talk about their experiences before birth. One child said he remembered helping "people" who had died in car accidents. (Maybe souls specialize in the kind of work they do!)


    There are many children who talk about these things, but I'll bet that many parents miss it.

    Those are wonderful cases, and lend so much clarity to the topic, Carol. Thank you for the answer.

    Thank you, Carol, for your answer. :)


    My eldest remembers being her Great Grandfather and choosing me from Heaven. She was due on his birthday but arrived three weeks early.


    Also, I speak regularly to my Dad who is in Heaven. His job there is soul retrieval, meeting souls as they pass over. It is the perfect job for him :)

    Are there memories as to why kids choose the bodies/families they choose? What about kids born to drug addicted, abusive parents, or born in third world nations, etc.

    I have read those who choose more difficult lives are to learn harder lessons and to help other souls learn lessons.

    Between 1977 and 1983 I dealt directly with the spirits of 5 departed friends. Each of them would visit me in visions in dreams and talk about their previous incarnations as well as their next incarnations. All of them mentioned visiting and getting familiar with their future parents. All of them stated they had things that were keeping them 'busy' on the other side.


    One of them was in the process of being something of a 'helping spirit' to runaways in this world. I didn't understand it at the time. I was constantly being asked to play the 'role' of a medium and pass on messages. I was very young myself and didn't realize that the majority of runaways weren't criminals, lazy or rebellious in nature. The ones I were directed to were all dealing with some sort of 'abusive' relationship. (Mostly sexual in nature.) Some of them were dealing with suicidal tendencies. Which is relevant because my young friend had committed suicide. I always felt he had a 'debt to pay' for the sake of his own mistake and was in the process of trying to help others who were coping with the similar problems he had been facing in life. I always felt burdened by his spirits request for my helping hand - but now that I look back on it - I am finally seeing what a blessing it was in disguise.


    I always got the impression from the spirits of my five friends that life went on --- hidden from view from the rest of us.


    Sincerely,


    DKing

    The 5-year-old daughter my close friend (who does not believe in reincarnation), mentioned that she chose her family, "being in heaven"

    Did she say this to you? Keep listening and she may tell you other things. Maybe keep a journal. Maybe on a subconscious level she knows you will understand what she is saying.

    I'm new to the forum and must say I'm enjoying reading all of your posts.


    My daughter also told me that she chose me. She is now an adult and has retained quite a bit of her pre-life memory. She has told me stories from my own childhood and recounted conversations and interactions that I had with my own mother when I was ages 5-8. I hadn't discussed my relationship with mother with anyone and she had died many years before my daughter's birth. My daughter also mentions "jumping in" at the time of birth. She describes being in a place in the cosmos looking down at fast moving scenes above the earth then "taking the plunge".


    My youngest son was spotted following me around pre-conception by a stranger that introduced herself to me as a psychic intuitive. She told me a little blond boy (I have black hair) was following me and watching me intently with the thought of being born to me. I laughed as I wasn't planning to expand my family. 2 months later I found myself pregnant and went on to deliver a beautiful, healthy, and yes, blond little boy!

    Welcome to the forum. It sounds like your daughter could be your mother. Have you read any books on reincarnation? One of Carol's books, "Return From Heaven", is about same family reincarnation. It seems to be more common than anyone thought. It will be interesting to hear what stories your son tells.
