4-year-old recalls 'past life' 9/11 experience

Do we reincarnate after we die ? Image Credit: PD - Leandro De Carvalho
A mother on TikTok has shared the remarkable recollections of her young daughter's alleged past life.
While the concept of past lives and the idea that people can remember who they used to be remains a highly controversial topic, some researchers have documented tantalizing evidence suggesting that there may be something more to the phenomenon than a child's overactive imagination.

One intriguing example of this can be found in a video posted on TikTok by Riss White - a mother who was responding to a post asking for stories of children's past-life recollections.

According to White, on September 11th 2018 she had been browsing news articles and memorial pieces about the 2001 terrorist attacks when her daughter seemed to recognize the twin towers.

"Hey mom, I used to work there," she said, pointing to an image of the North Tower.

When White asked her when that was, the four-year-old replied "before."
What she said next however would chill her mother to the bone.

"She said that one day she was working and the floor got really hot," said White. "So she stood on her desk because the floor was too hot. And she said that her and her friends were trying to get through the door but they couldn't open the door so she jumped out of the window and flew like a bird."

Of course it's possible that the girl had somehow picked up references to the events of 9/11 from somewhere else, but it seems unlikely that she would have understood it at that age.

Could she really be the reincarnation of someone who died that day ?

You decide.

"I don't put a lot of stock in it" somehow doesn't explain how a skeptic police captain (or anyone for that matter) could possibly know that the painter of the Hunchback Woman lost his mother due to a blod clot. It could've been anything else. The VAST majority of people that die will WITHOUT a blood clot in the brain. He identified and years later verified 28 independent facts in the life of someone that had lives a LONG time ago and someone who was so unimportant it was a real detective work to find the painter's name. All 28 facts (all of which could be simplified to yes/no questions) all c... [More]

Intriguing topic, thanks for sharing.

If I have to believe what I once dreamt decades ago, then I was once a Sardinian pirate around 1200 bce (think "Shardana"). Apparently I wasn't in a hurry to 'reincarnate'. Hmmm.... I just remember there's a thread about procrastination somewhere.

Still you may well have had some less swashbuckling incarnations between Sardana and Abramelin.

When I was around 4-5 years old, I would wake up from dreams of being an adult and a life so horrible that I didn't want to grow up. The memories have faded, but, I still remember the feeling. Now, I did go through some extremely rough times, but not with the hopelessness I felt upon waking up from those dreams

Yeah. I can dream up a lot, but that dream somehow stuck with me. Well, it was actually more of a nightmare.

"Flew" is a good deion of what happened to her. In that situation, most people are dead before they hit the ground. Her body would fall, but her soul wouldn't.

But your making stuff up so it makes sense to you.That's a not what she said at all. It was from the moment of supposed jumping, if one translates the story as a deion of someone in the tower. One is not dead at that point. Dying on the way down is a myth. It could happen to someone ready to have a heart attack, but think about it. How many people jump out of perfectly good airplanes everyday and reach terminal velocity and live to tell the tale? I simply cannot imagine that falling to one's death from a fiery building would be anything but a horrifying experience. There's no way it could be... [More]

Hi Psyche..I read and re-read this particular statement and I would like to respectfully disagree on that...sort a way...or something... When we learn more about a particular subject it indeed changes what we think we know. How about evolution, our understanding of it has changed time and time again once we uncovered more information, developed better methods of analysis and so forth. Even what we thought we knew about black holes, for example, has changed once we had developed the tools to observe such things better. Naturally this does not imply that physics has changed 'cuz it doesn'... [More]

Hi BD Sure your making sense. It's a common idea and why people think science changes. And it does get added to. Your example of a black hole is a good one and one we can use here. I assume you are talking about Hawking radiation. Evaporation of radiation eventually depleting the black hole. It's an interesting development. But it hasn't changed anything that we do know about black holes, which is very minimal. It doesn't change how a black hole comes to be, how it functions or its strength. It's still the same. Now we know how it evaporates. And quite honestly, that's entropy at work. Othe... [More]
