Shall when we next receive our pension. May seem silly but even as small an amount as £1 is important to us these days. It's 2l of milk, a couple of loaves of bread, etc. Austerity Europe for many but I will budget for it next payday.See that donation button in the Forum Staff signature (You have to be signed in to see it).

And tell them your story on how and why you came here!
A nice thought to say so, fireflydancing.I came here when I was busy unraveling some past life. I wanted input from other people, because this proces is typically a lonely proces and as a bonus the constant selfdoubt about whether I should believe my own conclusions or dismiss them as being crazy.
The name Carol Bowman sounded familiar to me, although till this day I cannot recall which one of her books I must have read before.
I love good conversations about reincarnation and related topics. It’s a good place to be here, friendly and open.
Sometimes I loose myself in the Archives of this forum. So many stories to read. Not having time enough
The same with the daily posts: not enough time to read it all. That’s also a good thing, because it means this forum is alive and serves a purpose for many people.
So, Thank you Carol and Steve for creating this space for us.
Thank you, Deborah. Your thoughtful, wise and kind words are always good to read and always welcome.Yeah...I don't think people know it costs hundreds of dollars every year to support the software for this space. Every year Carol asks me....do you think we should close it down? Of course I've said no ever year even after 21 years. I will delete this thread before I alert them to come here. What I'm reading so far is great...but we need as many people as possible to say something. At least THANK YOU! Who knows next year - may be the year it goes away. It's easy to just expect spaces like this to be here, and I know members don't always know the history - but in 2006 it almost did. Unruly, people made it hell. That's why it's so structured now. SO please chime in, post a funny pic, cartoon, balloons - pretend we are having a Party! Use your imagination.
Angie Brown...please do not feel you have to donate. Your donation can be in kind words. That goes for everyone as well.
Hi Deborah, let's hope that this forum is here fifty years from now as time doesn't mean much to those of us reincarnating and the forum would keep us connected lifetime to lifetime. I tried the donate button and it didn't seem to work - not sure why.See that donation button in the Forum Staff signature (You have to be signed in to see it).

I can't even find it :-/Hi Deborah, let's hope that this forum is here fifty years from now as time doesn't mean much to those of us reincarnating and the forum would keep us connected lifetime to lifetime. I tried the donate button and it didn't seem to work - not sure why.
Thank you, Deborah. It isn't much. Just over £5 British but every little helps said the old woman as .... and will do again as soon as again. As I said, TV licence costs a lot in the UK even if someone hardly watches it. Do you know the law here is that even when people only use one for DVD's or as an offline computer screen, they HAVE to have a licence 'because the set CAN receive tv transmissions'? I don't know how it is in other countries. Anyway, when our old tv stopped working we didn't replace it. The small amount we watched it didn't justify the fee and in fact where we live there is an inexpensive cinema. We could go there every three weeks for the same cost if we wanted
I have been (still am) down with a quite bad chest infection, so haven't much been on here.mmmmm OK send them a thank you via email. That works.
Thank you so very much too, Carol and Steve. Also I thank Deborah and all the team and all the other members here.What a nice surprise to start our 22nd year! Many thanks to Deborah and all of the moderators who have kept the Forum going! We appreciate all who have supported the Forum over the years--either through serving as moderators, or as active members, or those who have donated money towards software and hosting.
I met Deborah (aka Debbie) many years ago in San Francisco, after Children's Past Lives was published. She jumped right in and started helping out, and very quickly took over all of the management at the Forum. Three cheers for Debbie, and so much appreciation for what she's done. I probably would have shut down this site many years ago, since I'm technologically illiterate, and didn't have a clue as to how to expand this site.
There is no other site that has the range of cases of children's memories, and as many comments from members and helpful advice, as this Forum. Steve and I created the Forum, in its earliest incarnations, as a place where parents could post their cases safely and anonymously, and get advice on what to do if a child speaks of a past life memory. I wanted this information to be free to the public. I also wanted to cast a wide net to get a large sample of cases to learn more about this amazing phenomenon. If you search through the archives, you will find some extraordinary cases of these memories, and you can see how these cases unfold. You will be able to see through my comments, and those of the moderators and members, PRACTICAL ADVICE (important emphasis!) on what to do if your child starts talking about a past life and seems to need help processing it. This is truly priceless and unique information, which needs to be shared, and really isn't available anywhere else on line.
So if this Forum has been helpful and informative to you, please help us keep this going with your donations and participation.
Have a wonderful holiday season, and wishes for a peaceful and enlightening new year!
Carol & Steve
