Wanted: Children who have past life memories: Reality show's bizarre casting call
Mail Online ^ | 24 March 2013 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 03/25/2013 1:03:13 AM PDT by Windflier

There have been shows on toddler beauty pageants, raising multiples, and children living with other peoples’ wives. But now, a pair of producers is hoping to feature children who have lived past lives.

Hoping to find children who ‘have inexplicable memories and experiences of another life,’ the producers insist that past-life memories are real and somewhat common.

Speaking with the Huffington Post, husband-and-wife producers Joke Fincioen and Biagio Messina hope to find children, aged 2-10, who have inexplicable memories that seem to be from past lives.

‘We wanted to tell these parents’ stories without trying to prove or disprove them.’

Their show, ‘Ghost Inside My Child,’ is slated to air later this year on Bio Channel following the airing of the pilot episode.

Ms Messina told the Post: ‘These kids are going through something and we’re trying to figure it out. A kid will say something about their life and we research it to see if it pans out.’

The casting call cites a preference for American families who have solid evidence of their child’s previous life memories, be they drawings, pictures, or video footage showing the child acting strangely.

In the pilot, they talk to a family of a boy who dreamt of his own death. However, the two-year-old boy wasn’t just afraid of his own mortality – he specifically remembered going down in a fighter jet.

Full title: "Wanted - children who have past life memories: Reality show's bizarre casting call for reincarnation program"

Maybe some of you parents remember your kids telling you about their past lives. Out of my seven, at least two insisted that they'd been here before, when they were little.

For my part, I never challenged them on what they thought to be true for themselves, and just let it ride.

Afterlife? Young James Leininger, left, was believed by his family to be the reincarnated soul of WWII fighter pilot James Huston, right, who was killed in action during Iwo Jima

While the boy’s story seems far-fetched, his family did some digging and found out that the name of the aircraft carrier – the Natoma Bay – and the names he listed were all crew members.

The boy remembers going down in a “fighter jet?”I didn’t think they had jets back in WWII.

Well, the Nazis did have the ME-262, but I get your point. Typical bumbling from the lamestream media.

No such thing as reincarnation in Scripture.

Bottom line is that prior to the first death, we have opportunity to exercise faith in Christ. If we reject him, we remain condemned and after the first death await the Great White Throne Judgment, from which if we are not found in the Book of Life, nor Book of Works by Divine standards, we are sent to the second death or eternal separation from God. There aren’t second chances.

There are documented cases of resuscitation and our Lord Christ Jesus is the first fruits for the case of Resurrection, which differs from reincarnation as it involves a new body.

The same phenomenon are easily understood as spiritual influence, possibly demonic influence or even possession.

Fallen angels can even masquerade as angels of Light. They’ve been around for millennium. They can anticipate trends in our thinking and can induce thoughts and can access our memory/thinking.

The example of the young kid knowing or recalling the names of others from a previous time may have been provided to him spiritually. The real question becomes what intention does that spirit have in becoming so familiar.

Gotcha, but that's your chosen belief (which I am not invalidating). Much of the world has thought and believed differently about these matters for thousands of years.

I'm only throwing this out there for general interest/curiosity. Not trying to start a religious argument.

It’s not my belief that is so consequential to those considering reincarnation, but God’s thinking doesn’t change. As recorded in His Word:

Heb 9:27
(27) And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

The story presents a situation where media is seeking children with past life memories.

Some have associated such phenomena as proving reincarnation.

I have presented a counterargument, explaining how such phenomenon might be explicable, but with much more devious sourcing. Those who strongly support the reincarnation argument are not speaking from righteousness, but at best from ignorance, and at worst, with deceptive intentions.

Again, I'm not going to go anywhere near invalidating your personal beliefs, but they are your personal beliefs --- books written by the hand of man, notwithstanding.

There are other books by men which also purport to be the ultimate truth of the universe, and millions believe in them, just as you believe yours.

Ultimately, what's true for you, is what you yourself have observed. No one can take that from you.

When I was young. About Six or so I started having a reoccurring dream. I was running across a lawn toward some low Gray buildings and off to my Left was water and black smoke and a great noise. I would wake before I reached the buildings. One day when I was in Jr. High I opened a book in the library and there was a photo of my dream. Same low buildings. Same water and smoke.

The photo was taken on December 7th 1941 At Pearl Harbor.
I didn't have the dream again after seeing that photo.

I’ve had similar experiences,...not the same specifics.

From what I’ve studied, and learning through Scripture, placing God as the best source for veracity, I’m led to observe such things are spiritual in nature.

They then ed to be discerned. Could be 3 conditions. Deception, Divine guidance, or familiar spirits.

Familiar spirits and consorting with them is shunned in Scripture. Deception is inevitable in our lives. God provides.

I had a great great aunt who had premonitions and dreams. God would show her how different people would die. Family members always thought she was batty, but one year when she was elderly, she attended a wedding for her great niece.

At the wedding reception, she started to cause a ruckus. It seemed she had had a reoccurring dream wherein she had seen a man in his last dieing moments, descending into the ocean, looking up and seeing the sky, and drowning. She became aware at the wedding reception that the groom was the man in her dream and the newlyweds were planning a honeymoon the follow weekend to go on a Caribbean cruise.

She became adamant that they not go near the water and they had to cancel their cruise. Niagara Falls was out, and so was the cruise. After a long discussion, and quite the ruckus, the newlyweds wanted to calm down the octogenarian and assure her they weren’t in danger, and would abide by her wishes.

Later in the week, the new groom met with his friends for their weekly 2 hour poker game. At the game they discussed many things, future plans, possible outings, and one came up on the idea of the group going out that weekend to go deep sea fishing. The idea took hold and the whole crew jumped in to charter a boat and go deep sea fishing that weekend.

The young groom declined, lamenting that if he went to sea, after promising not to go on their honeymoon cruise, he’d never hear the end of it, but he had to remain true to his word and couldn’t accompany his friends. They understood, and one of his buddies who wanted to go deep sea fishing couldn’t, because of his shift that weekend with the volunteer fire department. So they agreed to trade shifts, keeping the newlywed out of mischief and allowing his buddy to go out fishing.

That weekend, the newlywed served his shift and was a first responder to a call from the petrochemical plant to put out a shipboard fire, that had spread to a loading dock from some smoldering ammonium nitrate aboard ship.

After several minutes at the scene, the Grandcamp exploded. The firefighter wasn’t found, but about 3 weeks later, his body washed ashore, only identifiable by dental records. It seemed he had been blown out to see by what is now known as the Great Texas City Explosion in 1947, and it is likely that when he struck the water, he may have still been conscious, but shocked and unable to move, sinking as he passed away.

Seems as though when it’s your time to go, there isn’t anything you can do to avoid it. If you attempt to avoid the Angel of Death, you might just reroute yourself into his path.

My Mother would dream of “Muddy water” and within a day or so someone in the family would become sick or suffer an injury. Never failed.

As many here know I am not religious in the least and am in fact a atheist. But some things just make One wonder.

My Mom would dream of water as well. Whenever that happened, there was a death. She always equated the symbolism of water to tears.

Great story, “Soul Survivor” I think was his book. I especially like, the reunion he went to, and met the men he served with.

““Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who is to come. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” (Matthew 11:11–15, NKJV)

One more attempt to slam Christian beliefs...to move people away from serious news and knowledge and to keep them in the dark discussing fantasies - the next show topic will be about visits from fairies — like the just released movie about the Easter Bunny, Sandman, Santa, the Tooth fairy, and Jack Frost battling the boogy man...yeah - two of those “super heroes” are trying to over write the importance of those religious holidays of the only person that can battle evil, Christ! I’ve stopped the practice of chocolate bunnies and are making sure why Easter is important - and plan to do the same for Christmas very soon for my little boy next year...Certain things must be maintained - and this hype the media drives into everyone’s lives in an attempt to sell them crap has to be stopped at the individual level!

Not only the Germans had jets in combat, the ME-262 and He 162; but the British had the Gloster Meteor that was used against the V-1s in late 1944 and was deployed to the continent in early 1945. The Bell XP-59 was being test flown, but never produced. Also, theLockheed P-80 was being test flown and would have been deployed if the war had gone into 1946. Major Richard Bong, the top US ace of WWII was killed doing test flying of the P-80.

When one of my sons was about 4 yrs old he was convinced that we had both been alive together previously. He was very upset when I didn’t remember and he said to me “Yes, you know, we both got sick and died. First you died, and then I died.” He was adamant that this was a true memory. Even now we have an uncanny, almost telepathic closeness.

You don’t sound like an atheist. You don’t simply dismiss your dreams and those of your mothers. Perhaps you are just an agnostic.

Thanks for the ping. I’m glad they are doing this. Some people do have such memories, and those memories should be studied.

Yes, I remember reading about that reunion. He instantly recognized everyone present. Amazing stuff.

Well you can take it that way if you like, but I didn't even see a subtle dig against Christianity in the article. This is simply a topic of interest to many people, and has been for all of human history.

Even physicists are now coming to agree that time is not linear. We may know much of what is yet to happen - because it already happened.

The idea of reincarnation puts a big dent in the revenues of fear-based religions, so of course they reject it. But one comes to understand that it not only happens but it is a voluntary process, then many inexplicable things start to make sense. Chief among them that consciousness and awareness are far greater than the contents of an individual human brain.

Amazing. When my third child was little, he often would say things like, "when I was a man...",etc. I never queried him closely about what he recalled, but he'd talk about things with great familiarity that most small children wouldn't have the slightest clue about. I would always just listen and acknowledge him. Even now that he's in his thirties, he still remembers some of it.
