    Welcome to the forum mdbded2004


    When your son talks about 'Mommy Jodi' it could just be coincidental that she shared the same name as your stepson's Mother .... or your stepson's Mother may have been your son's 'Mommy' in a previous life. Do they have any kind of relationship with each other today? It's very common for souls to reconnect in consecutive lives, and in various roles. We could be Mother and Son in one life, and then Brother and Sister in the next, Husband and Wife in the life after that, then best friends, enemies and so on.


    I'm afraid I can't offer any suggestions on his behavioural issues, I think it's just one of those developmental stages in a child's life where you have to ride it out. I think he will grow out of this stage in time, and he should also begin to focus more on his present life than his past as he gets older.


    Chris :)

    Hi Mdbded! And, welcome to the Forum.


    As Chris pointed out, your son's behavioral issues may have nothing to do with a past life, and we aren't suited to counsel you about such things. Of course, there is a possibility that some aspect of his behavior could be related to a past life. However, there is nothing in your description that would provide a possible tie-in. If his behavior is identical to a known person, who passed away; there would be something that deserves further observation.


    It occurs to me that, if your stepson knows his mother's name, he could have shared it with your son. At four years old your son could be confused about family relationships, and could have simply identified with his older half-brother. However, this does not negate the possibility that his memories of a past life are real. If he speaks of anything that could be validated in some way; then you would have something to go on.


    It is fortunate that you are observant and open to the possibility of his remembering something in the past. When he speaks of something that strikes you odd, you won't dismiss it and presume that it is just a child's fantasy. If you do happen to observe something that is past life related; you can find an excellent article by Carol Bowman called, "THE FOUR SIGNS of CHILDREN’S PAST LIFE MEMORY".

    My son remembers..


    Hi,I'm new to the forum..my son just started talking about when "he was 7" just the past couple days..He is 4 now..he said that he had another Mommy & Daddy and that they would have him climb trees to pick off the leaves.He said there was snow,rain and sun and that the trees would get slippery and he would have to wear sticky gloves.Also,that he had 2 cats,he died and went to heaven and then came to us..I really believe,but it also freaks me out a little..he also says a name.. Thank you for any input :)

    Hi Floridavirgo! Please accept our warm and deepest welcome to the Forum. I am hoping that more qualified people than myself will be in touch with you about your son. But, until that time, allow me to inquire about his interests and activities to determine whether anyone could have spoken to him about anything to do with Past Lives and Memories. Please keep a journal of everything he shares with you, with date and time entries. Be careful not to share any of this information within his hearing ability, and be sure that whenever you ask him questions about his comments not to ask him any leading questions that could include any kind of information.


    The major difference between real memories versus childhood imagination is that the real memories are generally quite consistent and plausible. Document any information that you feel he could not have known by any means. If he reminds you of anyone, write it down, keep it to yourself and take great care observing his traits and behaviors.


    By all means, if your suspicions are strong, please ask to get in touch with Carol Bowman. In fact, she may observe this thread, or someone may direct her attention to it and you may hear from her.


    I would personally recommend reading her two books; "Childrens Past Lives" and "Return from Heaven" at your earliest convenience, because the information contained will be of immediate value.


    We look forward to hearing more about your son, and hope that we can be of help. Thank you very much for sharing your question with us on this Forum.

    Did she live before?


    My grandaughter at the time of the stories was about 4 yeas old.London,would talk all the time about her "other parents",saying to her mommy and daddy,"you know,my other mom and dad".She told how her mommy cried when she(london) died in the lake.She even told how they were all at a picnic and she wonderd off and fell into the pond(lake) and she watched her mommy cry so hard.She talked about it all the time,and every now and then she would say she wanted to go home to them.She is now almost 7,and she dosent mention it anymore.My daughter-in-law and I use to talk about it a lot.I am a firm believer in past lives.I read your book,Return From Heaven.Its so strange ,that my only daughter has a son Xander,who will be 2 this September.Xander was born with the very same web toes that my son Neal had from birth,and he also has a fear of water,stange beacuse my son drowned.

    Welcome to the Forum Lindalous! I'm so very sorry to hear of the loss of your son. No amount of time makes it any better.


    Speaking only for myself, I would not want to encourage anyone to look for the soul of their deceased child in the physical living embodiment of another child, but I sincerely believe that it does happen -- very often as described in Carol's books.


    I would strongly recommend that you and your daughter begin keeping a journal about everything London or Xander says and does. Every detail can be important at some later date as situations arise, no matter how mundane they seem at the moment.

    4 year old with past lives?


    I don't know that I had much opinion on past lives prior to this. I tended not to believe in it I suppose but having my son I have started to change my mind. My brother in law directed me to this site. Many people close to him make comments to me about things he says. I don't really remember a time when he didn't talk about these things. He told us that he died and went to heaven when he was a baby. He did almost die in hospital and was very very sick. I thought maybe he had heard us talk about it. He always talks about the "old town". All the things he used to do there and he talked at one time about being a woman and being pregnant and having a baby in the old town. He also talks about when he how he went to the store for the first time by himself when he was 8 and he was shot. He talks about his dad came later on. The story is always the same. He went up to my step son who was visiting with us that was fishing at the time and said he used to fish alot in the old time. My step son said that he was telling him about when he lived before. He says he saw grandpa in heaven. It is endless and it is always very matter of fact. Not as if he is making it up. I am wondering if anyone could give me some insite on what to think about this.

    I would love to know about her and her composition. This is such an interesting to read the four signs of Children's Past Life. Thanks for posting this and it will add this to my learning

    Welcome, Ivory67. First start keeping a journal and write down everything that your son says relating to his past life or lives. As time goes on you may be able to do some research. See if you can get him to tell you what his name was, name of the town, etc. Have you read the book "Soul Survivor"? It's about Jame Leninger who remembers being a World War II pilot shot down in 1945. Carol is the one who advised his parents on what to do when he was having nightmares.

    Welcome to our group. It sounds to me like she is probably remembering a traumatic past life event. It might help her to see a therapist who is open to past life memories. Others here may have more advice.

    Is your daughter interested in remembering? Does she remember anything even for a few seconds after waking up?


    If so maybe ask questions that relate to the emotions or circumstances of the memory such as "why is he after you" or "who are you trying to get to run with you" (she may be able to answer those better and then remember more from there).


    This is based on an unfortunate current life past situation...but... in that kind of situation all your energy is focused on the event and not much of you is worried about the year, address, or other 'at the time unimportant' details. Those details are important later for verification for a lot of things but at the time you only care about getting out of there. Trying to remember concrete things like that interrupts the flow of emotions and actions in the event and it can make you blank out the rest of the memory.

    Hi Nfioretto,


    I suggest you contact Carol directly. Carol@carolbowman.com


    Also - have you read her 1st book? There are ways to deal with Night Terrors - see if this link helps. Please reassure her that she is OK - that she is safe now. Don't dig for who ~ what or when.....allow her to feel safe first.

    thank you for replying everyone.


    I have not read.the first book but I have ordered it through Barnes and noble .. we have not seen a therapist I will be looking into that . I do treasure her whenever this happens . This time she ran into her brother's room and started shaking him to get up and go with her.I also noticed everytime this happens her hands have an issue either she is rubbing them or telling me they feel like they are burning and or numb. Since this is the first tome we had the terrors three nights in a row I was able to link the hand sittuation together . And although she does not remember anything but waking up at night she did tell me she noticed the hrs before bed that while awake we all seemed to be moving extremely fast! I do think she was able to take notice because it was happening for three days.. she wants to know as well. Last night we did not have night terrors but I did make her an herbal tea and added a little extra protection to her bedroom.. thank you

    Contact Carol. She has contacts all over the country (the world even) and may know someone in your area that she can refer you to.

    I am new to this forum. I have been reading other posts and was amazed other parents have had similar experiences. My son is now 8 years old. Since he was around two he has always said he is a soldier. His story has never changed. He says very matter of fact that he is a soldier and as soon as he "grows up again" he is going back to the military.


    He is fascinated with the military. He knows the names of various military weapons and gear. He will see something on tv and tell me the proper name of it and I have actually googled it before and found out he was right. He hasn't been around military people a lot and it's not something I know much about.


    Any ideas on how to tell if it is past life memories?

    Welcome to our group. It sounds very much like it is past life memories. Start keeping a journal and write everything down. You can ask him open ended questions and see if he comes up with any more details. Usually the best times are when they are sleepy such as bed time, and riding in a car also puts them in the right mental state for remembering. Names, locations, etc. It would be interesting to know which war he was in. He is at the age when these memories start to fade. But there are also adults here who still have their past life memories. Have you read either of Carol's books? There is a lot of information in them. Also look at the book list and video archive section here.

    Welcome to the forum! That is amazing what your son has said and his knowledge! I was very much the same at his age. I knew I wanted to be a soldier and studied the military. I used to stand on a foot stool saying I wish I was tall again. I have every plan of joining when I'm of age too! Hope your son speaks more on his memories, they sound very fascinating :)

    When my brother was in high school they had a program called ROTC where people could join up and get a feeling of the military before enlisting. I don't know if it (or something similar) is available in your area but you might find it interesting.


    I also had a friend who joined something for the Army in junior high.

    A few years later my youngest son told me a story about how he became my son. He was 4 years old when he told me In the same matter of fact way as my niece, he explained a place of such beauty I was almost envious of his memory. I wrote it on a pice of paper and put it in an envelope to give to him when he leaves home I also recorded the witnesses who were there at the time.


    John's Story


    "Before I was your baby I lived with God in a castle, the castle was very very big and there was a lot of smiley people there." "What did the castle look like?". "It was shiny and big and made with light stuff and glassy stuff." "Wow, light and glass" did it ever break?" "Mommy your being silly" "What else did you see in the castle?" "Hmm, let's see there were really really a lot of colors." "Wow colors huh, what colors, were they like your crayons?" " No the colors didn't have gray in them" "This is gray the other colors don't have gray in them" "Yes they do" "No I don't see any gray in this red one" "Yes it is" "Wow, so the colors here have gray but the colors in the castle don't?" "yep,they're prettier too!" "What else do you remember about the castle?" "There was a buncha kids we we're all friends it was fun." "Who took care of you?" "The light people sang songs and danced for everybody." "Gee, it sounds really nice in the castle how did you get here?" "I asked God if I could be born he said yes so Here I am!" "WHO

    My son, who is 16 now used to have horrible night terrors as a toddler. I can't remember him saying anything about previous lives when he was little but he did/does have some signs of having lived past lives. He is completely obsessed with WWII. He knows everything you could possibly know about tanks. His dad and I were in the Air Force so know nothing about tanks! Also we got out of the military when he was just a baby so he wasn't really around the military lifestyle. He also has dreams about fighting Nazis. So bizarre. When he was a baby, I felt like he was very upset at not being able to communicate. He would get frustrated and rake his face with his fingernails causing it to bleed. He would also get mad and bang his head really hard on the floor/wall/table. I always felt he was frustrated at not being able to talk. When he started talking, all that behavior went away. I thought perhaps he remembered being able to talk and was angry when he couldn't. I have always felt he was an old soul. He has never cared what other people think and just happily marches to the beat of his own drum.

    Has he read about any WWII military people? Has he seen their pictures? Does he relate to any of them? Does he look like any of them? Does he or you know anything about George S. Patton? Maybe Montgomery "Monte"? James Leninger, who was a WWII pilot shot down in the Battle of Iwo Jima in a past life, bears an uncanny resemblance to his former self. See the book "Soul Survivor". Other children who have had their former lives identified also bear striking resemblances to their current selves.

    Yes, he has! He reads everything he can about it and is always recording stuff on the History Channel. Patton is one of his favorite generals but my son said he made a mistake getting rid of one of the tanks and going with a different one. I will have to look up some more WWII people and see if he bears any resemblance. One thing that is funny is that he is 16 and LOVES Frank Sinatra. Back on Veteran's Day, I volunteered with an association we have called MILVETS. One of my co-workers is the president of the club. She invited a WWII Iwo Jima veteran named Hershel "Woody" Williams. When I told my son he went NUTS. He said, "I Have to meet him!" I asked if it was ok and was able to get him on the guest list. I allowed him to skip school that day to go because it is very important and a once in a lifetime opportunity. Let me tell you, I had to ask my son to back off because he was asking so many questions talking to him that it help up the start of the ceremony! LOL! Then afterwards, I was ready to go and my son talked more with him and some other war veterans from the Korean and Vietnam war and we were basically the last people to leave. My son has such a deep respect for military he goes up to every person he sees (especially elderly) that have war veteran ball caps on and thanks them for his service. It truly blows me away that a 16 year old in this generation does that. He makes me proud. Here is a picture of him with Woody.

    Really interesting read thank you!
    My eldest son, now 6, spoke quite eloquently at the age of 3 about a small house by the sea where he lived with this sister and her children. Needless to say he has neither a sister or children!

    When my daughter was an infant she would laugh in her sleep (before she really even knew how to laugh) then about 30 secs later she would gasp for breath as if she was being choked or drowning. This happened every night for the first year, then tapered off.

    Now, at 5 yrs old, she does it about twice a month. The laughing...30 seconds later the choking. I want to know so bad what is going on. I have woken her up a couple times to ask and she forgets and wants to get back to bed.

    I have no doubt that it is how she died in her past life.
