My oldest son, when he was maybe 3- 4 years old, often asked me when we could go back to the planet we were supposed to live on. He would even get
emotional about it. About that time, I sometimes saw a bright blue flash light up our apartment. I thought it was an electrical problem at first.
One night, my husband was the only one still awake and was on his way to the bedroom in the dark... I woke suddenly as if someone had spoken to me
and knew that I should open my eyes and look toward my door/hallway. The brightest flash ever, lit the entire apartment! Then I hear my husband on
the other side of the door (he didn't believe me before) "Are you awake?" I replied, "Yes, I saw it too." Then he calls for me, and he's picking
up our son, bringing him to our room. He said the "thing" was hovering in our son's bedroom (just down the hall) when he turned and saw it flash. He
was too afraid to let him sleep alone. This turned into more than a year with our son sleeping in our room.
My youngest son at around the same age would tell me that he remembered some random thing from before he was born. He said lots of things. I usually
paid little attention, but he started giving more details that surprised me. He even told me that he remembered me before he was born. I asked him
how he could remember me when he wasn't even here yet. He acted like I was silly for asking, because of course I wasn't here yet either. He told me
that before I was born "this time" I used to have a job (I'm a stay at home mom). He described vividly some kind of laboratory setting that I worked
in and said I had to wear a long white shirt (lab coat?). It was a little strange.
I had an experience with my middle child as well, but it is much more difficult for me to share. Maybe all children are inclined to imagine these
sorts of things, or maybe there is some truth in it that we have forgotten. I am certainly open to it. It would be comforting to know that you chose
your own path. Things will never be worse than what we knew we needed to endure, and there must be something waiting on the other side of it all. I
don't know what to believe, but if I could choose an explanation for the suffering in this world, a spiritual learning experience sounds nice.
