This thread was inspired by one in the Paranormal forum: The Ghost Inside my
. In the OP, a tv program tells the story of three children who recalled their past lives.
One had died in the Oklahoma City bombing as a child - she remembered her "other mother" and missed her.
One had been a fighter pilot at Iwo Jima and died in a fiery crash off the USS Natoma.
The third had been in the World Trade Center and fell to his death; he recalled the airplane hitting the building, and falling to his death, and
"seeing" his brains splatter and rubble falling on him.
In all 3 cases, the parents took the children seriously. In only ONE of those cases (the WW2 pilot), did the parents try to contact the surviving
sister of his previous life.
In the OKC case, the girl and her "now" mother went to see the memorial - but they did not try to find her "then" family.
The WTC victim's mother found out who he "was", but chose not to contact his survivors.
My question here for you all "thinkers" is two-fold:
If you had a child who recalled a past life, and MISSED their other family - would you try to contact that family so they could know their 'lost'
loved one was okay, and where they were, and allow the child to meet them?
MANY times families have done so, and with professionals helping them, the reincarnation was revealed to the survivors from "last time." I find
this to be a very healing and uplifting thing. In particular this happens in India, but I've heard of a case in Scotland as well; they took the boy
to Barra (an island) to find his home, to give him closure. When he got there, no one was left, but he had closure.
So, the second part of the question is:
If you had lost a loved one, and learned that somewhere else, a young child remembered "being" your loved one and missed you - would you want to
Conversely, if not, why not?
If you had a family who'd lost you on 9/11, and you later were reincarnated, would you want to see them and tell them?
This is a tough question. In the other thread, and in the program in the OP - we touched on this issue. It seems to me obvious that "OF COURSE!" I
would want to see them, whether I was the reincarnated or the surviving bereft. What would you do if someone called you and said, "My child (or
"I") was your husband, and I want to see you."
Or if you were the "new" parent - would you contact the family and let them know?
Looking forward to any of your thoughts on this. I would be immensely relieved and grateful to know about a loved one having 'reincarnated.' And I
would also feel desperately that I wanted to let my "survivors" (if I loved them) that I was back for more.
