This book examines case histories of reincarnation but not normal reincarnation. Reincarnation within the same family. She interviews parents who are convinced that their child is a reincarnated family member. Why are they convinced? Birth marks on the child that coincide with scares or injuries of the deceased family member. Statements by the children at a young age that they were here before and so and so, whom they never knew. Statements that accurately reflect happenings before their birth that would be unkown to them or even a secret.
Statements on miscarraiges and changed thoughts about coming back. Talk about how parents are chosen. yes, this all sounds far out, it all sounds like science fiction. But the studies and the people described and their expereiences do tend to cause a person to think. If you believe in reincarnation this book will be a great read for you with more evidence that it does exist. If you are not sure what you believe you will find this book interesting. If you firmly do not believe you will not be impressed I'm sure.
It was an interesting book for me that presented many things to think on. It's a simple read and you can follow it easy. Chapters are broken down by cases and the author explains how they were brought to her attention, what she did to follow through and the information she was provided by the people involved. Not much guess work on her part that I see.
Bottom line, if it's your topic, it'll be enjoyable for you, if not, you might want to pass.
This is one of those books that make a difference. It teaches you about reincarnation. There are about three dozen cases of reborn children described here.
I am not taken in by a lot of nonsense. I have an astronomical IQ and a scientific mind, and I am convinced by this author and this book. I threw another book on this subject in the garbage where I felt it belonged (the best seller by Beatrice Eadie) but this Carol Bowman book is a keeper.
If you think that you know better, that reincarnation is impossible, well, you're not as all-knowing as you think you are.
I used to say that I didn't know what position to take on the abortion issue because we don't know what effect an abortion has on the baby. Is it destroyed? No it isn't. The baby is just as alive in Heaven as it was before. It has just been denied the opportunity to be born in that woman at that time. It can try again later or go to someone else.
On the other hand, sometimes the baby changes its mind and decides not to be born. That results in a miscarriage or stillborn.
Children between the ages of two and seven sometimes have memories of their last life. They'll remember "when I was big before" or "my other mommy". Often, the people in the past life are also in the present life or in the same family. You can literally be your own grandpa. You can be both your mother's mom and your mother's son.
There may be a physical connection between the two lives. You may be born with scars or deformities similar to those inflicted on your prior body at the time of death. You may look the same in both lives.
Isn't it wonderful that truths like these can be found in your local bookstore or here on the net.
