Video/Documentary The Ghost Inside My Child

Post by Candlelight.kk on 21st May 2017, 13:12

14 Jan 2016, 23:14

A new series of the documentaries, 'The Ghost Inside My Child' starts on TV tonight:

(Episode 1 of 9)
Pilot - A Soldier and a Screenwriter - New series.

Documentary series featuring children who appear to be a reincarnation of someone else, such as two-year-old Hollywood-obsessed Eric who would wake up screaming from a horrific dream about being crushed to death. Meanwhile, toddler Elijah took cover whenever he heard loud noises as though he were a soldier in combat and in a turn of events, suddenly began speaking German


Many episodes of the previous series of 'The Ghost In My Child' are available to watch on YouTube:

Its strange how both of these kids were about 3 years old when they first started talking about things they 'knew about before' and talking with imaginary friends that other people couldnt see. And the little girl Jada started saying at 3 years old that she was very happy that she picked her parents to be her Mommy and Daddy, saying she watched them for a while in heaven and decided to choose them --- and then the other things that happened as she grew older.

I've looked at some of these stories on You Tube, I didn't realize there were so many children with past life memories. My son never told me anything, yet when my mother was dying, my deceased grandmother was there to meet her, my mother would have conversations in front of me with her, one of the things my grandmother told her was that my son used to be her son. I also have a daughter, anyway up to then I never gave re-incarnation a thought. I have read where we do choose our parents and a broad outline of our lives for our Souls growth. In any case that programme should be informative.

The programme is indeed informative.  These are all documented stories which have apparently been investigated and checked out thoroughly by various outide relevant authoritative sources.  I imagine there must be plenty more similar accounts which we never get to hear about.

Some of the stories we do hear about, however, have been found to have been 'added to', exaggerated, tricks of the mind/imagination, hallucinatory drugs involved - or even, in some cases, just created for publicity and monetary gain.  For instance, as with the case of the one-time 'best-seller' book 'The Boy Who Went To Heaven'.  (I know this was not necessarily about reincarnation, but a seemingly authentic story of a 'near-death experience' - but does show how people can be taken in en masse).  This book was selling like wildfire and being discussed enthusiastically all over the world.  Turns out that the whole thing was just an elaborate hoax, instigated by the little lad's father, Kevin, who "co-wrote" the book - on the advice of a reporter/agent for some Christian evangelist organisation ...

FILE - In this Jan. 9, 2009 file photo, Beth Malarkey, left, covers up her son, Alex, right, with a blanket after surgery as Alex's father, Kevin, watches at University Hospital's Case Western Reserve Medical Center in Cleveland. Alex Malarkey was in a 2004 car crash left him paralyzed below the neck and was receiving an artificial breathing device. Spokesman Todd Starowitz of Tyndale House, a leading Christian publisher, confirmed Friday, Jan. 16, 2015, that Alex Malarkeys The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven: A Remarkable Account of Miracles, Angels, and Life Beyond This World was being withdrawn. Earlier this week, Alex Malarkey acknowledged in an open letter that he was lying, saying that he had been seeking attention. The book was first published in 2010. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File)

Kevin Malarkey got his book deal by late 2009. The publisher would be Tyndale House, a major Christian publishing company with annual revenues of about $175m. Tyndale publishes a popular version of the Bible (the New Living Translation, with some 26m sold) and the Left Behind series (about 63m copies). And like every Christian publisher, Tyndale was aware of the public appetite for been-to-heaven-and-back stories. Popular accounts of near-death experiences have been commercial bestsellers since at least 1975

The boy's mother actually tried over a long period of time to deny the authenticity of the story in the book, but was totally ignored by those who were making loads of money out of it (at the same time spreading the 'Christian' message) - ignored also (it seems) by the readers of the book, who wanted to believe that it was all true.

How did your mother take that, Curious - or you, for that matter? There are many aspects of the notion of 'reincarnation' that I find hard to swallow. I accept wholeheartedly that when we pass over, the spirit or spirits of another(others) who is/are already deceased do come closer to greet us and help us through our transition. I believe this - indeed know this, because I have experienced, first-hand, on numerous occasions the dying person who in front of me has spoken to various passed-over members, speaking to them by name. The person who is dying has not been in any way 'afraid' on those occasions, but taken it all very matter-of-fact - invariably with a radiant smile of pure wonder and happiness on their faces, and sometimes speaking coherently where for some time previously they have been unable to do so. On some occasions they have said that the person that visited them said they would 'come back again tomorrow' - and that 'tomorrow' was the day they died. I know, for a fact, that both my mother and father will be there to greet me when my time comes - because my deceased mother has told me this herself, as well as passing this specific message on to me through a number of mediums on different occasions. All of this I can accept - not just as a belief, but as a knowing, because it has been shown to me personally.

However, if my mother (or anyone else) were to tell me that my son used to be my grandmother's son (which would also make him my father confused ), I would have a hellova time accepting and dealing with that!

My mother at the end wasn't always lucid, neither of us knew what to think when my grandmother said that, we never discussed it, there was so much more to talk about at the time. I find aspects of re-incarnation difficult to believe, but how to explain these children for example? There was so much of what my grandmother told us but that is off topic for this thread.

I don't see where I can edit my last post, when my grandmother said my son used to be hers, that would make him my uncle not my father.

Yes, it certainly gives us something to think about - and question ....

I would love to hear more ... if it's not too personal for you, of course. Perhaps, if you feel able and willing to share, you might tell us some more in a separate topic(?)

PS: Before submitting this, I have just seen your above post.
Yes - took me a while to work it out, but I got there in the end.  very happy

This whole subject is very intriguing.
Of course it only takes one proven hoax to cast doubt on all the other cases reported.
