We’re all strongly influenced by our past lives, especially the traumatic events. Memories of children’s past lives manifest in the same way that they do in adults. They show up as fears, phobias, quirks, and idiosyncrasies, and a lot more.
When little Billy screams his head off as you try to get him into the swimming pool, his soul may be recalling the time, 300 years ago, when he went down with his ship. To heal the blocks from children’s past lives, the key is always to investigate the original source of the fear.
Children’s Past Lives: The Trauma of Abandonment
Recently, I worked with Miranda, a mother of three girls and two boys (her little ducklings, my Spirit Guides called them). Her kids were currently dealing with some big issues with no obvious cause. I knew that if I could find specific trauma from her children’s past lives, it would help to explain so much of what they’re going through now. I’ll tell you about her youngest first.
Nine-year old Rachel was abandoned in an apartment in Soviet Russia in a recent incarnation. Her parents were arrested during one of Stalin’s purges, and dragged off into the night. Hoping to protect her, they didn’t tell the KGB officers that their baby was asleep in another room. She ended up in an orphanage, and died from suffocation soon after contracting polio.
Rachel has unexplained anxiety and sleep problems. Much of it is related to the life in Russia. Having been abandoned at night, her soul is now on high alert during the hours of darkness. And the fear of being alone manifests as a constant, low-level stress.
Children’s Past Lives: Separation Anxiety
I expected three things after exploring Rachel’s past life: The first was that she would have extreme separation anxiety. The second was that she’d have breathing issues. The third was that she’d be terrified of losing her mom. Sure enough, she displays all three resonances.
I told Miranda that Rachel’s memory of being separated from her parents means she’ll hate to leave her side. “I call her my little Velcro,” her mother said. “She has terrible anxiety around leaving me to go to school. When she was a baby, she wouldn’t let me leave her alone. I used to take her to rehearsals where she’d lie peacefully in my lap while I played violin.”
I asked Miranda if Rachel had breathing problems, or if she couldn’t catch her breath sometimes. She said, “No, nothing like that.” Then I thought, “Does she shallow breathe? “Totally,” her mom said, “All the time. I try to get her to reduce her anxiety by deep breathing, but she just can’t do it!”
“Does she worry about losing you?” I asked. “She talks about it all the time,” Miranda said. “She worries I’m going to die. She says things like, ‘I miss you when I’m sleeping.’”
Mom is planning to tell Rachel what happened to her in her past life in Russia. By hearing what happened, Rachel’s soul will be reminded that it’s all in the past, and can release the worry and stress she’s carrying deep inside. I’ll give you an update in a few weeks, after healing has a chance to take place.
Next week, in the second article on children’s past lives, I’ll tell you all about Miranda’s eldest daughter, and her struggles to get past a life in Barbados 120 years ago.
Ainslie your story on children’s past lives really hit home for me. During a reading with you a few years back I talked about my son’s stomach issues. From a very young age he would have frequent episodes of hysterical screaming and crying while holding his stomach. The doctors I took him to couldn’t really find anything wrong and just suggested diet changes, etc. But these bouts of screaming and crying continued no matter what I tried.
Your spirits guides said my son, while saving my life, had been shot in the stomach and died in our previous life. You suggested I tell my son, in a story kind of way, of what happened to ” two friends ” a long time ago and that his soul would understand this.
Well I was pretty skeptical to say the least ! But I did it.
And after a few weeks of ” storytelling ” my son’s stomach issues miraculously disappeared.
It’s been a few years now and he’s never had another episode.
I can’t thank you and your spirit guides enough !
Hi Susan, I’m thrilled to hear your boy had such immediate results from hearing about his past life. It’s amazing, isn’t it, how painless and effective the whole process can be?
I read your children’s past lives article with great interest as I have a 3 year old granddaughter who came into this world with unusual idiosyncrasies her parents just could not understand. Always a “trying” child with occasional night terrors, I had reason to suspect a past life influence through her innocent but quirky behaviors such as pretending to be a “mechanic” while at a playground when she was 2, among other “male related” statements. Most recently (now a 3 year old) she came up to me one evening –out of the blue– and taking my face in her hands she stated rather urgently, “Gramma, I have a boy in my head–I mean my HEART– and he’s trying to get out!!” I just held her tightly with love and soon she scampered off to play again. I told my son what his daughter said and he remarked, “Well that explains a few things!” Our hope is eventually she will outgrow the behaviors that have her present little life in such a confused state at times!
I thought you might enjoy that little story! Thanks for all you do to help us make sense of our crazy selves!
Sincerely, Monica Farruggia
Thanks for sharing your story, Monica. Interesting to hear your granddaughter correct herself and say “heart.” My spirit guides talk about the heart being the home of the soul, not just as a metaphor. As the father of a transgender child, I’m particularly interested in hearing stories like this. I’d love to hear how things progress!
When I was a child, I used to have recurrent nightmares of trying to run away from molten lava and having it be right on my heels. I don’t even believe that I knew about volcanoes before I had the first of these dreams! By the time I was in my adult years, the dreams didn’t trouble me anymore, but I’ve often thought about the terror of those dreams from my childhood. Interestingly, when I told my brother about this later in my life, he said he also had similar nightmares about molten lava when he was a child.
Sounds like a shared experience to me. Were you and your brother able to remember any other details?
My entire life, I have had a fear of food. As a child, my mother says that I brought the term “picky eater” all new meaning. I remember being deathly afraid of any possible foreign objects that might be in my food – a bone fragment in my fish, or pepper on my corn.
Last year, I used your CDs to explore past lives. I wasn’t really expecting anything to happen during the meditation. I had no experience with such things.
In one of the past lives, I was a 3-year-old boy. I remembered my mother poisoning my food in an effort to kill me. One day, she starved me for a long time to make sure I was hungry. Then, she gave me a bowl of mush that was full of black speckles. I don’t know what it was, but it tasted terrible! When I cried in a panic, she strangled me violently until I died. The intense trauma of that experience left me with a fear of food in this life.
Once I realized that, I was able to overcome my fear of food. I am in my mid-40s and I can eat peacefully instead of picking through every bite like I always have.
There is much more to the story, but I would like to thank you for producing the CDs that were able to help me. By remembering past lives, I learned a lot about my fears and even some of the things I enjoy in this life. I am at peace with those fears now, and I allow the joys of past lives to get me through the tough times in this life.
Thank you for sharing your story, Laurie. No wonder you were a picky eater after that horrendous experience!
