Oh, honey I am so sorry you are going through so much. Life is filled with so many experiences both good and bad, and I hope your experiences turn
something negative into a positive. Again, so sorry you are going through this.
There are countless studies to rummage through. Many video's out there to help explain the phenomena of rebirth and or past life regression.
I began studying the phenomena in college, along with an interest in apparitions.
It seems to me there are many people who by the time they reach a young age of say five or six, their past life memories fade as the entity becomes
more involved in this life.
Kids are known for making up stories and pretending, however their minds are new to this world and their imagination is mostly mistaken for childhood
As many who have studied this phenomena know the work and study of Ian Stevenson. Dr. Stevenson has done extensive research.
Part of an interview with the good Dr. below. More is found by clicking the link above.
Omni: Do you see in reincarnation a glimpse of a larger purpose?
Stevenson: Well, yes, I do. My idea of God is that He is evolving. I don't believe in the watchmaker God, the original creator who built the watch
and then lets it tick. I believe in a "Self-maker God" who is evolving and experimenting; so are we as parts of Him. Bodies wear out; souls may need
periods for rest and reflection. Afterward one may start again with a new body.
Omni: What advice do you have for those who have no memories of a previous life?
Stevenson: Some persons have said it is unfair to be reborn unless you can remember details of a previous life and profitably remember your mistakes.
They forget that forgetting is essential to successful living in the present. If every time we walked, we were to remember how we stumbled, we would
fall again. I've also had people envy children who remember previous lives, as if these children had special wisdom. In fact, it makes more sense to
look upon them as suffering from an abnormality, almost a defect. The memories they have are often more of a handicap than a blessing; and they nearly
all become happier as they grow older and forget their previous lives. To paraphrase Jesus Christ, sufficient unto one life is the evil thereof.
Omni: Has your work influenced your own attitudes toward life and death?
Stevenson: I think so. I wouldn't claim to be free of the fear of death, but it is probably less in me than other people. These children sometimes
provide reassurances to adults. We’ve had two or three incidents of children going to, let's say, a woman who has lost her husband and is
inconsolable and saying, "You shouldn’t be crying. Death isn’t the end. Look at me. I died and I'm here again."
