Many children in Japan are born with pre-birth memories supporting our findings as presented in our book, Cosmic Cradle, Spiritual Dimensions of Life before Birth.
The Journal of Scientific Exploration recently published the results of a Japanese research study entitled “Children with Life-between-Life Memories.”
The Japanese study cites a six-year-old Japanese boy who recalls: “I was flying in the sky, looking for my mother. Looking down. I could see my mother and chose her. I thought she was the best person. She looked lonely, and I thought, ‘If I come to her, she will not feel lonely anymore.’”
A nine-year old Japanese girl describes the place where she was before she came to her mother: “There were many children, or souls, and a god, an entity with authority.”
To our question “Is he like a school teacher?” she replied: “No, no, no! He is much more generous,” and said, “He was looking after us, like a counselor.”
Abstract from Japanese Study—Studies of children claiming to have past-life memories have revealed that some of these children also claim to remember the “bardo,” or life-between-life state. Although there seems to be a small number of those with past-life memories, the number increases if we also consider children without past life memories (cf. Sharma & Tucker 2004, Tucker 2005:183–184). This article will report on some cases of Japanese children who claim to have life-between-life memories and show that the presence of life-between-life memories does not depend upon the presence of past- life memories. This suggests that children with past-life memories must be viewed within a larger context of the large group of children with one or a combination of the four types of memories: “in the womb,” birth, life-between-life, and past-life.
