I had always presumed that past lives could only be explained or understood, as an adult, regressing to adult past lives.

I've recently read a book on how children can relate past lives, as children, having left (for the most part) adult bodies, and have been reborn again.

One of the main theories in the book is that current manifestations of fear, phobias, and physical problems, can be traced and explained through past life regression. In children, it is even easier to do because they are not yet jaded with years of explaining things away in 'normal' terms. Natural and spontaneous behaviour that can mean memory of a past life.

For instance, if a child has a fear of fires, under regression this could be explained as that child having previously died in a fire. Regression will also give age-appropriate descriptions to the person in the past life, and describe in detail their lives, situations, and deaths. Often when lives are suddenly and without warning, there are residual effects felt in the next life, hence the maladies and fears. Upon regression, the symptoms disappear once the reason for the death is uncovered. The current manifestation, whether it be a rash, or fear, is almost like a clue left to be carried on until it is understood and put to rest in the next life.

Also in the book is mentioned in particular East Indian culture, where past lives are accepted as normal. Research and documentation on children who have had told of familiar places, people, landmarks etc., have often proved to be accurate. And the child has had no current life relationship whatsoever with this knowledge. Through careful analysis, some very incredible stories emerge of very young children talking about their 'other parents' in a certain town, living in a type of dwelling, near a lake; the neighbours, family birthdays, etc. The detail relating between the current and past life is really incredible to read about.

For anybody like me who had never before considered a connection of past lives with children, I highly recommend reading:

Children's Past Lives- How Past Life Memories Affect Your Child, by Carol Bowman, Bantum Books.

Yes, this is a very good read.

When we are born, some think for the first few years, we remember Past Lives (or parallel existences); when our child minds begin filling up with experiences from this one, however, those memories fade away to make room for current learning--language, etc. What I found most interesting is that some of these children lost their physical problem and/or their fear of a particular thing by recalling when (or which) existence that problem first manifested... and then the present day symptoms disappeared.

My nephew was one of these children. He's thirteen now but when he was only two he would talk about when he lived before. We thought it was cute and would ask him about it. Remembering that he was only two and didn't even have a full vocabulary yet but what he told us was so fantastic.

He said his name was Peter, he had been married but his wife died quite a few years before he did. They didn't have any children as his wife had had womens problems and wasn't able to have any. He had a brother named Dave and he had died in the war. He had been an airplane pilot and had been shot down.

He himself had not been able to go to war because he was deaf in one ear and was very dissapointed about not going. He and his wife had a good life and was very happy when he did die.He died in his sleep of heart failure at seventy three. These are an awful lot of details for a child of two and three to know.

He was surprised to find us surprised that he would know this because it was just matter of fact to him and no big deal. We could talk to him about this and ask questions all the time til he turned four and then he would forget things and wasn't quite sure about anything any more and then by the age of five it was all gone and he didn't even remember us talking about it.

We never pushed him about it because we felt it was a natural thing and didn't want to interfere with his natural progression in life after all he had this life to get on with now. It's truely fascinating to listen to these kids because you know they aren't makeing things up or haveing false memories. How could they, they know nothing of that sort of life and haven't even been exposed to movies on t.v. or anything. We found him to be a typical male of that era and yet here he was and not yet a typical male of this era. It wasn't creepy or scary it was awe inspiring......Ann :P

If you do ANY book reading at all, Ann, you'd really like Children's Past Lives by Carol Bowman. Timbit & I have both read it. It's VERY informative, and goes into great detail.
