So this is what is happening to me

    My 5 year old girl has been saying mostly since she could put a phrase together that when you die, if you are good, kind, and helpful, god makes you into a tiny baby again. Now, this is strange. We ask her calmly like in normal conversation, where did you hear that from or who told you that, and she insists no one, my brain tells me that. I know it in my brain, and such. Although it is impossible to know if anyone has really told her that, we highly doubt it. Especially because we have had no mention to religion to our kids and she started saying that before going to school. Anyway, today she was saying that again and I wanted to share it with someone.

    EDIT: by the way, I just picked the first forum on afterlife I found as I do not want to mention this to friends , dont want them to think we are crazy. I now realize this forum might have a different view. Me and my wife are mostly agnostic, but with this thing with our daughter we are kind of puzzled. If anyone else told us this we would think yeah right she saw it on tv or something, but we know this is not the case. Also my daughter just tells the truth, at that age they do not lie, they just tell whatever you ask. Anyway, dont know what to think. I wish I could talk about this with someone.

    Welcome to ALF. You are definitely in the right place. :) Unfortunately, I'm new to much of this myself so I can't really answer your questions but there are some very informed and knowledgeable individuals here that can explain this to you and your wife. In particular Roberta Grimes. This is her website and she's just the person to help. Hope you'll check back as Roberta may not be able to check in here right away since she's so busy with other projects. Other members may be able to shed some light...…...

    Thank you! I am not sure what I want to hear with this, but I surely feel I have to talk to someone about it. I am going to google her

    Welcome! I hope I can help answer, but Roberta is a good bet. If you visit her website, you can get her email.

    She replies quickly.

    Now, I am no where near the level of let's say....

    Roberta, Mac, GeneEdwardSmith, etc. Etc.

    However, I do know that it is well documented that some young children remember their previous incarnations.

    IDK much more beyond it being an indicator of high levels of Spirituality, but that is what I can tell you.

    (BTW, don't worry about the sight... We're not fraudulent... At least all of the old guard and 90% of the new guard... Those guys get weeded out within an hour anyways.)

    That'll only be a 5 dollar consultation sir;)

    Just kidding, I hope you feel welcome here! I hope you continue to stay.

    Is there anything else afterlife related she's said that you are willing to share?

    Thanks for the kind words. She has said "when I was a grown up" a couple of times and that she wants to have many babies... It is strange, sometimes it does feel like she has lived before.

    Your welcome. That is very interesting... As she gets older I am sure that there will be more info. And that it will develop in detail, but that is a hit or miss. If it is repressed (ie, you get frustrated with it out of concern, kids bully her for thinking she's trying to be cool, teachers try and call her crazy.... Etc. Etc. ... She will either hide it well or repress and outgrow, eventually forgetting it.

    I had a similar situation when I was a toddler. Sadly, I did not have parents like you and mine thought I was possessed by the devil....

    If encouraged properly, your daughter could become a very special person. Especially in this community.

    As stated before, I would love to see you stay.

    Sincerely, Kurt.

    The account of your daughter's words is interesting but not unique. Exactly what, though, are YOU looking for?

    Thanks. We are in no way repressing it, nor encouraging it. We just take it as normal conversation.

    I just want to talk about it. It is not easy for agnostic people to come across this. I want to manage this the best way possible.
