You might not know it, but children remembering their past lives is nothing new. Reincarnation is no doubt a fascinating subject, even within the scientific community.
Carl Sagan, American astronomer and astrobiologist, even acknowledged the fact that reincarnation deserves serious study, stating that “children sometimes report details of a previous life, which, upon checking, turn out to be accurate and which they could not have known about in any other way than reincarnation.” (source)
A typical reincarnation case, described by Jim, includes subjects reporting a past life experience. The interesting thing is that 100 percent of subjects who report past life remembrance are children. The average age when they start remembering their past life is at 35 months, and their descriptions of events and experiences from their past life are often extensive and remarkably detailed. These children remember things that would be impossible to know about the person they claim that they were. They’ve been taken to their families, confirmed addresses, professions, and various other details of the lives of the people that they used to be.
We recently published an article of 6 great examples that go into more detail; you can read that article HERE. Again, these are truly astounding, and there would be no other way for these children to know these details.
I personally believe that reincarnation is real, but I don’t think it’s the only option for what takes place after death. I believe it is one of many possible paths for the soul. I believe some souls can reincarnate, as we’ve seen above, into another life. I also believe some can reincarnate onto other planets, as beings we would consider to be alien. Furthermore, I believe reincarnation is just one option for a soul. Other possibilities include the option to travel to other dimensions and experience a life there, or to completely forgo reincarnation and experience life in the non-physical realm, free from a physical body. Perhaps a soul must continue to reincarnate until certain lessons are learned to move to another ‘level?’ Who knows. Perhaps there is an origin from which all souls stem from? So many questions, so many possibilities, and reincarnation could be one of many.
