Sometimes kids say the spookiest things!
And then there are nights where we have such vivid and real dreams we wake up in a sweat, certain that what we have experienced was real – it can take us sometimes a day or so to calm down and bring ourselves back into the present world.
Could this be evidence of past lives we have lived?
Many cultures do have traditions of reincarnation, – it is a belief that has been held since the dawn of time. We will examine some of these spooky claims below – try not to get freaked out!
The Dutch Clock
Bruce Whittier awoke from a vivid dream one night and was immediately able to draw what he had seen in great detail. He had dreamt of a very specific looking clock, and this clue followed on from countless dreams he had had where he was a Dutch Jew called Stefan Horowitz, who had died with his entire family in Auschwitz.
He also dreamt about an antique shop where the clock was located, and he set out to find it. Shockingly, that exact clock was found in the precise shop he had dreamed about. He asked the proprietor about it and he told him that it had originated in Europe. So persistent were these dream memories, he sought a hypnotist that could take him through a past life regression.
He was able to recall the moment he suffocated after being shot in the head by the Nazis, and then how suddenly he no longer felt hungry or cold as he drifted towards a bright light. Rabbi Yonassan Gershom, who had written books about the connection between the Holocaust and reincarnation, shared Whittier’s story on speaking tours and was able to raise money for Whittier to obtain the antique clock. This gave him great peace and closure after the years of nightmares.
3-Year-Old Leads Police To Where He Had Been Killed In Past Life
The Druze are a small insular religious group that have strict rules about maintaining their ethnicity, and they also have strong beliefs about reincarnation. They are scattered around Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Israel. They believe that if a child is born with a striking birthmark, it is usually a sign that they have had a past life.
They observe the child for clues about who they were, by taking close note of the things they say when they are very young. In one particular instance, a 3-year-old boy living in Israel’s Golan Heights was able to lead the police to where he had been murdered in his past life, and even where his body and the murder weapon had been hidden.
He had a striking red birth mark on his forehead, and was able to tell his family, and the elders of his village, which man had murdered him. He took them to the man and reminded him of how he had murdered him in his past life, with the strike of an axe to his head. The man admitted his guilt.
In 1947, 2-and-a-half-year-old Parmod Sharma began to tell his mother that his wife who was living in Moradabad would cook for him instead, so she need no longer make his meals for him. He also, especially, refused to eat Curd, explaining it was dangerous for him.
A few years later, he began describing details about where he was really from, how he had been much wealthier before, and that the name of his family business had been “Mohan Brothers.” He explained that they had sold biscuits and soda. He also described how he had died in a bathtub. Not like other children, he would make complex toys for himself with electrical wiring.
