Past Lives Reincarnation- The True Story of The Children Who Have Lived Before

Updated on April 15, 2016

Nell has been interested in Reincarnation for many years, and recently joined the Signs of Reincarnation study group for further learning.

The Case For Reincarnation.

Children have always had a vivid imagination. But how can we tell if our children are telling stories or if they really are the reincarnation of someone who has gone before us? There are many cases stating that children are in fact recalling their Past Lives or Reincarnation.

Many people will dismiss this idea, but sometimes the facts are staring you in the face. What if the child reports a particular incident that can be checked? For example, by history books, war records or even memories from your elder members of the family.

From an early age we learn to see and adapt to our surroundings. The life we have starts to become familiar. We recognize the face of our mother, who holds us in her arms from the day we are born, and nurtures us so that we feel safe and loved. As we grow older, our home and our family become familiar and safe.

But when children start to talk, it is one of the most wonderful things to a parent. Soon the words become a pattern and the child soon learns to string sentences together. In most families this is a normal process. But what happens when your child suddenly says out of the blue. 'Where is my real Mama? Why am I here with you, I want to go back and live with my real mummy.

Is this a sign of reincarnation? Or do you believe that your child is showing signs of telepathy or other psychic phenomenon? As you will see, children can sometimes seem to recall memories from another life.

This isn't as always imagination. We tend to know when a child is making up stories, and playing with imaginary friends. We all go through that stage. We expect it from our children. So when do we know it is something different? I believe that we know there is something strange going on when the child makes a statement that is so mind blowing, something that can be tested, and to our astonishment and chagrin, find out and that it is true.

Below are real life stories of Children who believe they have lived before.

The memories Begin.

Boy Remembers His Past Life As A Fighter Pilot.

James Leininger who lives in Louisiana, was just two and a half years old when he started talking about his vivid dreams and strong memories of being a man called LT.James McCready Huston. He went on to say that he had been a World War two fighter pilot, from Uniontown Pennsylvania, who had been killed in Iwo Jima, more than fifty years before.

At the tender age of two the boy began talking about aviation, and his knowledge of the subject was amazing. He hadn't learned it from his parents as they knew nothing of flying or being in the Airforce.

He started having nightmares about being shot down by a Japanese plane with a red sun on the side. The child's parents began to study the subject, and to their astonishment, realised that something extremely extraordinary was happening.

There was no way James could have known this amazingly true information! His nightmares started after his father had taken him to Dallas flight museum. But there was nothing there that would or could have started these amazing revelations.

Andrea, recalled how James would scream at the top of his voice, 'airplane crash, on fire, can't get out, help, and he would be kicking and pointing to the ceiling. At one stage when Andrea took James shopping, she pointed out a plane in a shop window. 'Look' she said, 'It has a bomb at the bottom'.

She was astounded to hear her two and a half year old state, 'That's not a bomb, that's a drop tank'. Andrea had no idea what on earth a drop tank was. he went on to tell his bemused parents that he had flown a plane called a Corsair, which took off from a boat called the Natoma. When his parents served him up some meatloaf for lunch, which he had never eaten before that day, he said 'meatloaf, I haven't had that since I was on the Natoma'.

'Research, Check and double Check'

Bruce, James father, decided to do some research of his own. He discovered that there had been a small escort carrier called the Natoma Bay, which had been in the Battle of Iwo Jima.

Further research proved that there had indeed been a pilot called James Huston! His plane had indeed been hit by Japanese fire and was struck in the engine. This was March 3rd 1945.

In a further twist to the story, Huston's sister, Anne Barron, now 87 years old was tracked down, and states that after listening to little James story, she totally believes him. 'He knows too many things, for some reason he knows what happened'. Huston's cousin, Bob now 74 years old also had this to say.

'To me, it's amazing, everything the boy has said is exactly the account told to James Huston's father and also my mother, there is no way this child could have known that'!

When James was six years old in 2004, his father took him to a reunion of veterans who had served on the Natoma. When he was there, James was able to recognise one of his old mates after sixty years.

His parents stood in awe as he stated, 'They're so old'!

Most Recent Interview.

'Its the tiny things that provide the truth!'

Ever since James's extraordinary story hit the headlines, the book written by his father has reached all four corners of the globe and has proved to be very popular.

I have read excerpts of the amazing story, and most of the really tiny proofs are the most profound of all.

Its definitely not something you can dismiss. But is it reincarnation? I believe it is, but why not read it for yourself?

Isle of Barra

Cameron Macaulay

Cameron Macaulay has lived his whole life in Glasgow Scotland, but ever since he started talking at the age of two years old, he has told his family about his previous life on the Island of Barra, which is situated of the west coast of Scotland.

Cameron lives with his mother Norma. He started talking about a white house, which overlooked the sea and the beach, he goes on to explain about there being airplanes that used to land on the beach, and also the fact that he was very fond of a black and white dog he had whilst he was there.

The family had never been to Barra as it was over 200 miles away from where they lived. To get there would take an hour by flying or longer by sea. His dad on the island was called Shane Robertson, who evidently died by being knocked over by a car. His actual words were, 'He didn't look both ways'!

One of the strangest subjects was the toilets! He used to keep complaining that on Barra his parents had three toilets. He also spent ages drawing 'his' house, a long white building, standing on the beach.

He would sit on his chair talking about his parents and brothers and sisters, and as time went on he got more and more upset about leaving his other mother. He would cry continuously and say that he wished his mother could see that he was alright.

The story soon came to the attention of a film company, and after listening to his story, his nursery school teacher suggested that maybe they should film him and go to the Island.

Cameron's Journey To Barra 2006

After setting up a meeting, the film company agreed to take Cameron to Barra. They were also escorted by a Dr. Jim Tucker, a child psychologist.

When Cameron was told he was going, he couldn't stop jumping up and down. 'I'm going home, I'm going home' he shouted.

Reaching the Island, they were astonished to find that they had indeed landed on the beach! Cameron started to run around yelling, 'I'm back'!

Chattering away about his Barra mother, he told everyone that she had long brown hair that fell all the way down her back, and that she read him stories from the Bible. Cameron's mother stated that they were not particularly religious and had never done this at home. They soon booked into a hotel and started to search for clues to Cameron's past.

Back on Barra
Back on Barra

Familiar Things

After contacting the Heritage Centre to find out about the house, they were disappointed to find that no records could be found about any house being owned by the Robertson family overlooking the bay. To say they were disappointed was an understatement. They drove around the island looking for the house but couldn't even see one that resembled Cameron's description.

Then they realised that they were looking in the wrong direction! The planes that Cameron saw were coming in from the wrong side of the bay. If Cameron saw them from his bedroom window, they realised that they had to go the other way.

Eventually the hotel phoned them and told them that yes, there was a Robertson family home on the other side of the island. So they started to drive Cameron there. They didn't tell him where they were going, but when they arrived, Cameron jumped out of the car and ran straight to he house.

He knew it immediately! But as Cameron walked through the door, he began to get very pale and quiet. Up until now, he had recognised the exact gate at the front, he knew where to go and was so excited. But entering the house he stood to one side, slightly uncertain.

Then he took off, running around the house, pointing out all the rooms where he had 'lived'. All the nooks and cranny's, the three toilets, and much to his mothers surprise, when they went into the garden he took them to his secret entrance that he had been talking about for years.


Landing on Barra
Landing on Barra

Strange Conundrums

The strangest part of the story comes about when researchers managed to find one of the surviving Robertson family members. In most of the reports they don't state whether this is a man or a woman, I believe in the video it says it was a woman.

Unfortunately the relative in question seemed to know nothing about a man called Shane Robertson! But even stranger was the fact that this family, now living in Sterling, had photos of the dog and the car that Cameron had seen in his visions.

Why was this I wonder. how could Cameron know about everything else but get this wrong? it seems that the relative in question would have been at the house around about the same time as Cameron in his past life.

As he grew older Cameron began to lose the memories of Barra. After his visit he settled down, happy to know that his mother in this life believed in his story. One of the last things that Cameron mentioned was when he was talking to his friend, he said, 'Don't worry about dying, you just come back again'.

When his mother asked him, 'How did you get here to me?' He replied, ' I fell through, and went into your tummy'.

My Thoughts on Cameron

I have read many reviews and reports about this story, and the one thing that I have noticed is that Cameron seems to be telling the whole truth about what he believes. So why did that relative not remember his father from the previous life?

Maybe Cameron got the wrong family. But no, that's not possible, because he recognised the car and the dog as well as the house. So what is the explanation? Maybe the relative was too young at the time to know about the father. Maybe it happened before she was born, and Cameron's 'old' mother had married again.

The psychologists believe it was just imagination, but how could it be? Even if he had seen the house on TV, surely it would not make him remember the inside of the house, the gate, the secret entrance, and of course the view from his bedroom window overlooking the beach where the planes landed.

And why would he make up the story of his father? I believe that the relative that gave the information didn't know all the family members, she would have been too young, and memory can be very deceiving. Who know?

All we know now is that Cameron is happy with his knowledge of knowing that he has been allowed to visit his previous home on Barra.

      Hi Lisa, Wow! that is amazing! I am not sure which way to go, but the first thing I would do is put all that info in google and see what comes up! you never know! Second, I would try to find out the name of the lake if its possible from your nephew. Write it all down and get as much info that you can. Maybe check out the library to see if anything fits the description in their records, as they have records that we can't see. Of course not knowing where he was situated is a pain, but good luck and let me know if you find anything! thanks!

      I was wondering if anyone had any tips on trying to verify if a child's stories are true or not. My five year old nephew has been saying for the past year and a half that he has a dad named Ron who died in a fire. That his old name was Steven ant cole and he lived on lake with his son, he never had any daughters and he enjoyed playing baseball... these are some pretty strange things for a 5 year old to make up and run with for over a year. I am trying to do some searching on seeing if anything close to what he has said about his "previous life" is true or not. Any tips or anything?

      Interesting stuff, Nell. There's a programme advertised on Reality TV (Freeview channel) about children who've had experience of a previous life.

      Although I've never seen it myself, I've had vivid nightmares at times about being trapped underground, as well as being on shaky gangways over deep chasms. I've even had nightmares about being stuck on a high wall.

      My great grandad and his dad had been agricultural workers near Kings Lynn, were recruited as big strapping farm lads at a hiring fair in Lincolnshire to work in the ironstone mines during the 'klondike' years in the Cleveland area of North Yorkshire (Guisborough district I think). They lived underground during the week and came out weekends.

      The younger one landed on his feet and wedded a local lass who'd inherited her dad's farm at West Rounton near Stokesley (about fifteen miles south-west of Guisborough), and worked it with her. I've only been told the bare bones, but it's possible he was trapped underground. He'd have been glad to work above ground again. The mining - in often damp conditions, where pennies went green in their pockets - had an effect on him in later life, and he had to live in a tent in the back garden during the last months of his life as being indoors made his condition worse.

      (There's a dvd titled 'A Century In Stone' from Pancrack Productions, produced by Craig Hornby, that includes interviews with former miners, wives and widows that describes the working conditions and life around the mines. I had the 'recollections' before I ever sat down to this dvd.)

      When I was born I bum shuffled for a long time. The doctor told Mum, she had a lazy baby. When my Aunt and Uncle went to Hawaii. I didn't want to

      go. It wasn't until years later when I consented to run the Honolulu marathon I got there. The next day I was on Pearl Harbour and saw the

      Arizona Memorial I broke down and recalled memories of a seaman who was killed below decks. Some of them must have lost limbs. I remembered

      the time when I refused to walk. I was two and wonder if I felt my legs had gone. To add to it. A few years later when I got to mainland America my

      first thought was, 'I'm home again!' They couldn't wipe the smile off my face. No matter where I've travelled to since, I've never had that feeling

      again.

      Well from personal experience I'm currently 53 and still have vivid memories of many past lives. For example in one life I was in a war staring down at a rifle. It shot me in the throat and again just beneath the throat. I still feel the sensation of the blood poring out and how my hands feet started getting cold working its way up my body. I vividly remember the warm bloods final journey and knowing I was dieing. Today I suffer from Neck pain and have herniated disks at the location I was shot. I can't stand anything around my neck or touching my neck. Coincidences? I don't think so. I suffer from Bronchal Asthma and have always had a hard time to breath. I have a fear of guns and will never own one. Don't have one in my house and would prefer to not ever be around them. I think our intuitive nature will give us signs about who we really are and why certain behaviors and patterns shape us in our current life. We need to pay close attention to each other's lives. It helps not to judge because what you may be looking at in persons life today may be the law of cause and effect from a previous life.

She is certainly bright but the details that she is able to bring up are extraordinary. I wonder if you would be interested in discussing her story a bit further with me. If so, please email me - jamie@jarrettcreative.com. We are developing a show about reincarnated children that we hope will be able to bring comfort and answers to families like yours.

      Thanks,

      Hi yes....I never believed in Reincarnation till my son now 10yrs old started talking about his past life when he was 4yrs old.First was him with excitement 4years old mummy did u know I used to own a pallor.I'm like what u mean own a

      pallor.U realize u can't afford one at this age.(4yrs old)He still insisted yes

      mummy.Im not lying.Later on he started

      to go into details how he was shot in the

      back by the cops.And Im his fake

      mum...Kept asking where's my real

      mum??? Later on explaining about his

      past life in Alcatraz prison with other

      inmates.

      By then I was on line searching this prison I've never heard of...True enough my son was right.I never told him that I

      found the place.

      3years ago we had a family trip to

      America from Australia where we

      managed to stop in San Francisco but

      unfortunately didn't have the chance to

      go to Alcatraz prison.We drove on the

      golden bridge and my son saw the Island

      and prison,he was so excited telling and pointing,That's the place if been telling yous....And kept asking us where's my

      friends????? Last memory he recalled 3 of

      them inmates were swimming and trying to escaping the Island, and he was swept away by the strong current and

      drowned....We the family that day in our

      four-wheel pretended that it was a pretty

      normal story.We kept looking at each

      other saying nothing and just listened to

      my son telling us about Alcatraz and the

      Island.He goes if by any chance we go on

      it..He will show us around and he will be

      our tour guide goes he knows the place very well from inside out.Wow to this day

      I don't ask too much of his past life.now and then he will tell me about it.....We just taking it easy and steady.Time will

      tell.

      I have always been fascinated in reincarnation. It seems to me that we don't listen to our children closely enough at times. I remember drowning in a past life. I don't remember mush more than living in a countryside and being young when my life ended. My daughter, the youngest one remembers more of her life before. I wish I had looked into it more carefully. Terrific hub.

      This is such a fascinating subject and the examples you gave of these two boys is amazing. I do believe in an afterlife but have not read that much about reincarnation. From the little I know of it, supposedly eventually if we live our lives to the fullest and best, we get to stay in heaven and do not have to keep coming back. Is that what you have read?

      Hi Concerned, that is amazing! she is definitely gifted or a reincarnation. The best thing you can do is write down every single thing she says. as she grows older she will start to forget, so at the moment do nothing just watch and take notes. when it starts to fade start looking into it, and if it proves to be true and can be verified then get in touch with someone who will be able to document it for you, don't be scared, its either two things, imagination or reality! enjoy it and write it down, okay? thanks for reading, nell

      When my son was about 3 he suddenly started talking in a deeper more adult voice and told me he lived before. I was terrified and i immediately tried to get him back to normal. I told him to stop. I was shaking because it wasn't my son anymore. He cried and said why. Why did he shoot me? He said my best friend shot and killed me on the bridge. Why would he do that to me? He could posdibly have said more but i seriousky have never been so afraid in my life so i don't remember all of it. A few days later the same thing happened again but only for a few seconds. Now i wish i would have got more details. I have no doubt now about reincarnation. Unfortunately now nobody believes me even my son.

      Hi Anonymous, Thats an amazing story! I didn't know what jewel osco was so went to look it up, and evidently they started in 1899, so you have a lot of scope to decide what year it was, any ideas of the time? thanks

      Very interesting hub and it could very well be possible. I had an uncle that believed if you lived your life good you did not come back here. If you treated people bad and lived a poor quality of life you had to do it over again. On his death bed he said,"I hope I don't come back". Great hub

      I live in Australia. I married a Thai lady who has a son a few years ago. At the time I met her he was was 2 years old. I brought him to Australia at 5yrs of age. His mum (my wife ) told me that her Aunties boy,

      nicknamed Tom (all Thais have a nick name) Died of a motorbike accident when he was 17yrs old. My wife was one month pregnant at the time and prayed and made the promise at his funeral that if he came to her in her belly she would love him, protect him and give him a good life. After her son was born and and at an early age he began to tell her his name was Tom and described his death. When I heard of this I was at first very sceptical but at the age of 5 I asked him who he was....he said I am tom. I asked him what happened and he told me about the motorcycle accident and so I asked him to draw a picture of the road....he did and also the three poles that were on the side of the road 2 he missed and one that he hit......ok here is the freaky part.....my wife and son lived 600 kilometres from the accident scene, My wife's son (now my son also and called Jack) had never been to this area before. when he was 2 and a half years old my wife took him to his aunties.....when they drove past the spot his cousin died at he became animated pointing and said "that is where I had my accident!! At about 6 to seven years old he began to forget these things. His mannerisms and things he likes are the same as Tom's but he is more quite. ....I love him with every fibre in my body he is my pride and absolute joy, day in day out. He is an outstanding achiever at school, modest and very thoughtful. He is now 13 years of age. Toms father recognises tom in him and cried with happiness a couple of years ago when I related the story Jack had told me when he was 5. Our family my wife, jack and myself are very close....his mother promised him a better life and he has it here in Australia and he thrives wonderfully. We go back to Thailand every year to be with his uncles, aunties Grand Mother and grandfather....He cannot remember anything of Tom now..........thanks for reading this I hope it was interesting to you as it was for me when Jack told me his story and drew it out on paper because that raised the hairs on the back of my neck and I will always remember his story with love, gratitude and happiness that I was meant to have him.

      My son, Brendan Lee Parsons, at 8 years old (never heard anything about this from him until he turned 8), suddenly, out of the blue he said that he was alive before! I asked, "when," he said, "1972 to 1993." I then asked, "how do you know this?," he replied, "God told me." I continued, "when did God tell you?" his answer. "when I was born." He also added, "I died in a car wreck. I was hit by a drunk driver."

      To be honest I don't remember a past life (maybe because I might be in my 1st life) but I do remember a lot about the time before I was born on this earth. Being born (and so reincarnation also) is a very complex thing you really can't dismiss Cameron's 'story' simply by the fact that he doesn't remember his past life's father.

      I teared up while reading: 'How did you get here to me?' He replied, ' I fell through, and went into your tummy.' Because that's exactly what happens...!

      As I grew older I also forgot most things but a few years ago something happened and now I can remember everything again.

      just as 'earthly' energy can't be destroyed and goes on to new forms, it seems so believable that psychic energy is even more precious. When I was very young and afraid of death, I was "given" a vision of one candle burning down but the flame going on to light another, and another. We don't know how The Creator works

      Nice hub! It's possible the woman knew the man but by another name. I only recently found out my grandmother's real name from her death certificate which was nothing like the name that everyone in the family called her. Where the nickname came from and how her real name got lost- no one left alive in the family seems to know.

      very interesting kinda spooky at first but then slowly realize what is going on...well see the universe is a cycle and every thing is connected. And really it's just one life force but different manifestations of this life force so it is quite possibly for it to manifest itself repeatedly from time to time. Thanks Nell.

      I am a firm believer in reincarnation. Some call it cellular memory. That we are our ancestors and the memories of our ancestors have been stored in our cells. There is scientific proof now of this phenomenon. Many organ donars pass on memories to those they have donated organs to. It explains why those that were given the donars organ has new cravings identical to the one that donated the organ or memories of a life they never lived. All our cells record everything and when passed down can be reanimated by certain experiences. I truly believe this is why we are passed down genetic strengths and weaknesses through our dna of our ancestors. This is a remarkable article and I am happy to have come across it. It only reaffirms my research on this topic.

      When I was a little girl I used to have this dream about being in Europe back before there was electricity. I don't know the exact location, but I just "knew" where I was. Each night it was like a continuation of the night before. I was in love, I was promised to another man due to familial responsibilities. The man I loved tried to take me away from it all so we could be together. The family of the other man made sure that didn't happen. After the night where I dreamed that he died, I never dreamed about him again. It lasted for 3 months and not another night since his death. Could have been a memory because at five years old I don't know where I would have gotten the details from...

      Nell, nicely done.

      Scientists (including psychologists) should know better than to be know-it-alls. That's being biased and unscientific. Skepticism is biased enough (contains the potent bias of "doubt"). We don't need the subjective "unsupported dismissiveness" or outright "self-indulgent ridicule" that some so-called scientists or skeptics like to toss around.

      Spirit is superior to the physical, just as cause is superior to effect.

      We all fell from grace by eating the forbidden fruit of ego -- the knowledge of "good-evil." Some children are more spiritually aware than others. And adults sometimes beat such awareness out of children, either physically or emotionally. Thankfully, my own parents were not like that.

      I have remembered thousands of past lives, most of them only fleetingly and then forgotten, like glimpsing little details from my past this lifetime.

      But one past life shook me so thoroughly, I cannot forget it. That life, 11,633 years ago, drove me to write about it. Back then, in that culture, females were the dominant gender.

      We lived under a matriarchy. I had been a warrior and hated it. I was so good at it, though, that I received imperial dispensation to request any position, including changing my stripes. I became instead a scientist, digging up artifacts in old Atlantis from an even older and more technologically advanced civilization.

      I remembered the panic of those final hours of the earth becoming like violent liquid. I remember barely escaping with my life.

      And I remember the solemn duty I performed to sanctify the location for a new town in southern Sardinia (now under water). I remember the overwhelming emotion when one of the arriving refugees looked too painfully familiar. My long lost love was alive after all. As I wrote that scene for my novel, tears ran down my face like rivers. I had never before experienced such free-flowing wetness.

      The memory was so vivid, it blocked out what my eyes were seeing in the present. It was like watching a 3D movie -- or re-living the past all over again.

      What a great article on reincarnation Nell . They made a movie about Cameron did you know that?

      Our soul memories often do come with us during birth. I have my own story.

      I suffered from recurring nightmares until I was around twelve. Then they stopped. My parents had me examined by a child psychologist and I underwent several tests. There was a written a report from the psychologist describing my vivid imagination about my own death, which my mother stuck into my baby photo album.

      These dream memories often plagued me and thirty years later I went under hypnoses to find out if they were from a past life. As an adult I believed them to be memories from when I was in a concentration camp. It was confirmed that they were but I would not have understood the horrors I was dreaming about as a toddler.

      How fascinating! I believe we have been here before and will be back again. I went to a Nadi astrologer who gave me details about my past life and even predicted a future one. These astrologers don't look at your palm. They read by fingerprints - if your fingerprint appears in their archives of ancient palm leaves (or whatever the horoscopes were written on), you get your reading. Some people don't have anything written about this. And the writings go back aeons. Highly, highly accurate. Far more so than palmistry.
