This Child Swears She Has Lived Before And Has the Astonishing Details to Prove It

When she was just three years old, a friend’s daughter announced that her real name was Joseph.

At first, her parents thought this was comical, if also slightly puzzling.

But it became alarming as the girl, Sally, insisted she was a boy and that her parents, Anna and Richard, weren’t her real parents and their home city wasn’t her real home.

She was convinced that, as Joseph, she lived in a little house by the sea, with lots of brothers and sisters.

‘She seems so certain,’ Anna told me.

‘Initially, we thought she was playing a make-believe game.

But this isn’t imaginary — it’s almost as if she has memories of when she was a boy called Joseph.

Memories Of Heaven: The book is compiled from letters and emails sent to motivational speaker Dr Wayne Dyer and his assistant Dee Garnes

She keeps asking to see the ships, and we’ve never taken her to the seaside in her life.’

It should be pointed out that Sally’s birth was almost a miracle — coming after her parents had been vainly trying for a child for years, undergoing a series of failed IVF treatments.

Whereas dad Richard was a no-nonsense chap who found this behaviour hard to take, mum Anna knew that their daughter wasn’t playing tricks.

She felt strongly that Sally’s memories were, in some way, real.

The possible explanations — some kind of mental illness, reincarnation or ghostly possession — all seemed equally unnerving.

But of her daughter’s truthfulness she had no doubt.

For her part, Sally was frustrated because the grown-ups didn’t take her seriously.

We advised Anna not to let Sally see that she was worried, and to wait and see what developed.

Sure enough, six weeks later the little girl had stopped talking about Joseph and the house by the sea, and seemed to have forgotten those ‘memories’.

But I never forgot about it.

Earlier this year, a book appeared that set me thinking about what had happened.

Memories Of Heaven, by the motivational speaker Dr Wayne Dyer and his assistant Dee Garnes, collects dozens of similar stories — proving that, whatever the explanation, there was nothing unusual about Sally.

The book was compiled when Dr Dyer had been ill with leukaemia for years, and he died of a heart attack before it was published.

Certainly, there is often an annoying shortage of detail in the accounts, which are printed verbatim from letters and emails sent to him by readers.

But what the testimonies lack in background and research, they make up for with their apparent honesty.

These stories come from dozens of independent sources, yet often tell of phenomena so similar that they seem to be describing the same events.

One-off accounts of supernatural oddness, however convincing, can be dismissed as anomalies.

But when scores of parents report the same experiences with their children, perhaps we should take notice.

Zibby Guest, from Chester, writes that her second son, Ronnie, was 16 months old when he started talking, and would often refer to his ‘other house’, where he was ‘a grown-up’ with another mummy and daddy.

    I don’t believe in such things. I expect the girl saw a picture or two of the seaside, or perhaps something on TV. I seriously doubt she lived before.

    You probably know where I stand — I’m boring and scientific.

    The book ‘Old Souls’ by respected journalist Tom Schroder (published 1999) details the work of Dr Ian Stevenson in this field, with compelling documentation of children with specific and testifiable ‘recall’ from different lives.
    I found this book after months of my own very young daughter speaking about another family & life, with such certainty and relevance when something triggered a memory & she would explain that it was not from ‘this time Mum, but when I was here before’. The recall was stated factually, just as you would any past event / situation. The memories faded when she was about 4 years old, but others in the book – especially those who find their ‘other’ families/lives, hold onto them. If you truly are scientific – that means open-minded and curious – not closed minded and arrogant – then I recommend this book to you.

      I am not closed minded by any means and will look for the book you recommend. Thanks.

        Likewise. I am always interested in hearing new ideas, but I do have to warn you, I believe that amazing stories deserve amazing proofs! This is not to say that anything that currently appears amazing cannot possibly prove to be real! One of the wonderful things about science is that it DOES change!
        Oh, and my comment that I was boring and scientific was not meant to meanthat scientific implies boring; scientific is exciting and wonderful! I am no longer a practicing scientist, but I still have great respect science! (Oh, and I got my new replacement headset/microphone, so I can actually discuss more than just make blanket statements!)

    What if Adolph Hitler has since reincarnated as a Jew? What if there are African-Americans today, who were Ku Klux Klan members in their past lifetimes?

    What if Leona Helmsley becomes a hotel room cleaning maid in her next lifetime?

    What if there are victims of human trafficking today, who were slaveowners in their past lifetimes?

    What if Bernard Madoff in his next lifetime, has to do special for those who were his victims, who have also reincarnated at the same time?

    What goes around, comes around!
