I've read a lot of stories about individuals who are able to remember a life before birth. Unfortunately, I don't remember anything like that. My
earliest memory was an odd one, though. I was sitting down at a table, reaching up for a mug of hot cocoa (it ended up being my favorite drink to this
) when I ended up tipping the mug and spilling it on myself. Thankfully it wasn't actually hot, but it scared my mom to death.
I remember her rushing over to me, just freaking out and getting me over to the tub as fast as she could. I just kept saying "I'm okay, I'm
okay..." the entire time, trying to keep her from worrying.
When I told my mom I remembered that event like it happened yesterday, she was shocked because apparently I was only a baby when it happened (not a
newborn or anything, but like less than a year). She didn't think people could actually remember that far back, mostly because she herself never
remembered anything that happened at such a young age.
My guess is that some people have better memories than others when it comes to this type of thing. Some remember things that happened as babies,
others when they were actually being born...it wouldn't surprise me at all if some people are able to remember a life before they were born as
Great topic! I'm always interested in reading this kind of thing.
