I watched a few episodes of “The Ghost Inside My Child” recently and must admit it was not what I expected. Like any normal person, I expected possessed children to be the center stage of the series. What I discovered was intriguing programming focusing on re-incarnation.
I’ve never been one to believe in reincarnation, but I found myself wondering how these children could know about a previous life – particularly when they expressed concepts and described scenes that a child would not understand.
One boy talked about dying and going to heaven to have God push him back down to Earth so he could be reborn to his new mom. Another child gave details of a life she could not have known about.
I’ve never met anyone who thinks they were re-incarnated and my children certainly didn’t tell tales of a previous life – although one did claim to have power in her eyes for several years. I’ll admit that it sometimes set my nerves on edge, but she laughs now and tells me she used to squeeze her eyes tight until she saw colors and called it the power in her eyes. Whatever it was, it apparently went away as she has no unearthly powers now.
I don’t know what I would do if I had a child who claimed to have another mom, or told tales of a life before this one. Have you had experiences with children – or adults – who seem to have lived another life? I’d love to hear your stories.
