In his book, “Children Who Have Lived Before: Reincarnation today,” German therapist Trutz Hardo shares extraordinary case studies of children from around the world who remember details of their past lives. One child in the Golan Heights, a region near the border of Syria and Israel, has a tale that will give you goosebumps.

A three-year-old of the Druze ethnic group, a group of people for whom reincarnation is a core belief, told his elders that he knew what had happened to him in his past life: He was murdered. The boy, whose story was documented by Dr. Eli Lasch and then told to Hardo, was born with a long, red birthmark on his head. For the Druse birthmarks like these are an indication of death wounds, says Hardo, and children born with them are paid close attention to for anything they may remember of their past lives.

“As soon as a child is born its body is searched for birthmarks, since they are convinced that these stem from death wounds, which were received in a past life,” Hardo writes.

 

If such marks are found on a child they try to discover something from his or her past life as soon as the child is able to speak in order to get the first clues to the circumstances of his or her former death.”

Once this particular child turned three and could speak, he told his elders that he was killed by an axe blow to the head. He was led through villages to see if he could remember where he lived, until he came to one that seemed familiar to him. The child said he remembered both the first and last name of his killer with complete clarity.

Hardo writes that the boy confronted a man he’d never met but knowing his full name, claiming him to be the murderer.

“Suddenly the boy walked up to a man and said, “Aren’t you … (Eli [Lasch] forgot the name)?” The man answered yes. Then the boy said, “I used to be your neighbour. We had a fight and you killed me with an axe.” Eli told me how the man had suddenly gone white as a sheet. The three-year-old boy then said, “I even know where he buried my body.”

Lo and behold, the boy led the elders to the exact spot, a pile of stones, under which there lay a buried body. The buried man’s skull showed a split in the front. The boy also led the group to the spot where the axe was buried, forcing the accused killer to eventually confess his crime.

it is true and reincarnation is real. Why ? because God brought them back to be reborn again!

Occam's Razor:  The parents committed in the murder and told the little brat about it in order to become famous and frame Eli Lasch.  No reincarnation, just a crazy plan.

The human mind is a highly localized form of compressed and focused energy. Science has proven that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It is possible although improbable that this type of thing can happen

This story doesn't make sense. Child at 3 said this and said that and walked up to the man and said you killed me blah blah blah, no way a 3 year old would do or say such things. Maybe he would say to mommy and daddy thing or two which probably won't even make sense to them. Not saying I don't believe, or I believe. Just saying this story is a joke

When I was around 5 I had a dream that I was a Chinese business man, I was sitting at an outside cafe and a car came by and shot me to death and sped away. When I woke my grandmother said it sounded like I was speaking in another language.  

Who knows, maybe I did watch too much tv or something, can't imagine watching something like that at 5 though.  All logic says it was just a strange dream but part of me really believes it was a past life.

@diss1  why? Many people have memories of something that was from another lifetime. people can believe a one so almighty GOD can be real and jesus was born from a virgin and we go to heaven but the thought of us being reborn isn't plausible? Being reborn makes more sense then going to heaven. Being one with mother earth makes more sense than a god you cant see that supposedly told a person to write a book of stories and whats right an wrong and you will either go to heaven or hell

@NoGodafterlifeDavidCage That wouldn't really work. They'd have to have murdered the man BEFORE conceiving the child. And that's a lot of work for a murder cover up. I'd love to see how they'd come up with that plan.
"Well... that escalated quickly."
"We just wanted to talk about viticulture and... wow, what happened?"
"We just axed in some guys head!"
"Okay, alright... yeah, that happened."
"It sure did happen. Hey, are you thinking what I'm thinking?"
"Depends, are you thinking that we should get married, you impregnate me and I bring the child to term. Than we spend a few years rising the child and then we have the child claim that they're the reincarnated version of the man we murdered here today."
"That was exactly what I was thinking about. This is great. I really needed an excuse to propose and have a child with you."
"I know, right? I'm so glad we axed this man in the face. We really bonded over this shared axe murder."

Aw, young love. We've all been there right? I'm not saying that the kid is the reincarnated version of an axe murder victim. I'm just saying your Occam's Razor might need a little sharpening if that's the alternative it gave you. Either that or your whittling skills need some work.

@Honey_bee Between the ages of one and five is when children's ability to absorb information is at its peak. When I was that age, I would ask people the craziest of questions. One time, I asked a black man why his hands were white not realizing that it was kind of a fucked up thing to say. A child's mind has no boundaries until they are formulated for them by adults, media, education, etc. I used to always ask my parents about death and what would happen to my soul. My mom's explanation was my favorite bedtime story. I used to always ask her about the universe and the purpose of life on Earth. Mind you, this was all before I turned 5. However, I'm not going to say that this story is 100% true either. You can never know the legitimacy of anything anymore :(

@Honey_bee When my oldest was about 3/4yo she would tell EVERYONE everything. She would tell them about the ghost she talked to in the attic (she did talk to someone in the attic, she said it was a man, I never went up there while she was talking to him was too damn frightened myself. But, would sit about half way up the stairs and listen to her and call her from there. She was about a year old when she started talking to him), she would tell them about her grandfather passing away (whom she only met once, when she was almost 2), she would tell these complete strangers anything and everything. The kid in this article grew up in a society where the elders are a pretty big part of his life. They are not strangers to him. And, young children can be very out spoken. And some can be very shy. It all depends on the kid. In this case, it didn't matter if he was out spoken or shy, he knew the elders in his community.

@Honey_bee yes he would , he is recalling a past life and he is an old soul, young children are very in tune with spirit both mine were as youngsters and said remarkable things at the age of 2 +

@ctguy4242  you are ignorant.. obviously souls come into existance.. where did your soul come from then?

71sketch17
71sketch17

@ctguy4242 They recirculate. When someone dies their brainwaves can be attached to another life form. Also souls can come from different dimensions or even animals that have built up enough energy throughout their existence to become compatible with the human body. There is an infinite amount of frequencies and only about 4% can be picked up by a typical human being. You can't even imagine all of the different types of energies around you. If you could see them, you'd be unable to see a mere foot in front of you. But that's just according to a belief system that is based on Quantum Physics.

@JadeKitten1985 "Many people have memories of something that was from another lifetime". no, they don't. they might believe they do, but that's not the same thing.


this story is exactly as plausible as the God of the Christian religion, in that there's no evidence for either of them

@raehuestis1995 My lack of friends throughout school pushed me to learn more about why people act the way they do. I spent most of my spare time reading books regarding the human brain and the endocrine system. The study of psychology opened up a whole other world of interests including anatomy and how thoughts directly affect the endocrine system. Once I understood that, I wanted to learn more about frequencies and found Quantum Physics. The more I read about Quantum Physics, the more I realized that I know nothing. That is what continued to push me to learn as much as possible. Over the past few years, with all of the amazing information that has surfaced, I've noticed that all of these discoveries tie into the same beliefs that both my Native American ancestors and my Druid ancestors held, even though they are both from different parts of the world and different time periods. My great x3 grandmother was a Shaman and her teachings have been passed down from generation to generation which are also similar to many other past spiritual religions around the world, before the rise of Christianity and the "discovery" of America.This is how I realized that we are all linked by a giant electrical grid where information can be passed from one thing to another without them ever meeting. Also being a mechanic, I know a lot about electricity and how to manipulate and convert energy many ways. There's a lot more than just that but it would be a long boring explanation of my life story (as demonstrated by this already long response)

@71sketch17 I saw in to one of those light spectrum's as a kid, I saw a being of pure energy, it was about a week after my Grand Father died, I will tell you this much, there is a LOT that humans don't understand and I for one have tried to keep my mind as open as possible trying to understand my surroundings Also, Isn't it closer to 00.000.1% of the light frequencies that the human eye can see?

71sketch17
71sketch17

@NicholasYoung @71sketch17 Realistically, there is no way to confirm what percentage of frequencies can be captured including what we can see, hear, touch, smell, taste. Every word has it's own frequency along with every belief system be it religious, spiritual, political etc. A persons outlook on life can determine whether they pick up a large amount or a small amount. I believe the 4% actually comes from what we've documented as sensible energy. Since there are an infinite amount of frequencies, there's really no way of knowing how much one person can actually perceive.

corourke
corourke

@71sketch17 @NicholasYoung I'm sorry. but if you knew ANYTHING about Quantum Theory, you would know that energy comes in discrete packets, and hence you don't get an infinite number. 

71sketch17
71sketch17

@corourke That makes no sense. When I say there are an infinite amount of frequencies, I am referring to the actual rotations per second. There are an infinite amount of numbers meaning there are an infinite amount of possible wave patterns. The smallest thing scientists have been able to discover are little strings of energy. However, they claim that you can never zero in on the smallest thing because there will always be space between you and the focal point. Some scientists believe that the matter that holds everything together, dark matter, is actually a collection of other frequencies that are beyond our technology, but represent a complete opposite set to what we can physically sense. On the other end of the spectrum, we could be traveling within a colossal wave. For all we know, we could be existing on a cell that is in the blood stream of a giant creature. Some studies suggest that we could be a mere holographic representation of energy. Our realities are really nothing more than manifested thoughts and interpretations of energy. So please, continue to try to educate me on the multiple aspects of Quantum Physics.

corourke
corourke

@71sketch17 @corourke Half of your comment was just full of random theories that have very little evidence other than "you can't prove it wrong", you can't then say "continue to educate me...of Quantum Physics". Besides, what then of singularities? Are you going to tell me that space exists in the already-defined spaceless point?

71sketch17
71sketch17

@corourke Are you illiterate? For the sake of argument, do some in-depth research so you can tie what you believe to be random theories together. There is a reason why I stated all of those "theories." That reason is to show you that the most prestigious of scientists believe that there are an infinite amount of frequencies. The reason they believe this, is because FREQUENCIES ARE MEASURABLE. Just because we don't have the technology to see, hear, feel, smell, and taste them all, doesn't mean they are not there. Why do I even bother arguing with people like you. You're either just a fucking retard or trying to provoke me.

corourke
corourke

@71sketch17 @corourke The reason that Scientists believe in an infinite amount of frequencies is because frequencies are measurable? So, you're saying that your knowledge of Quantum Mechanics is all self-taught? Fair enough; that clears that up.

71sketch17
71sketch17

@corourke Yes, there is an infinite amount of measurements because there is an infinite amount of numbers. Do you not know basic math? You can't even formulate a sentence that is readable. It's one thing to fuck up grammar and spelling. It's another story when you try to argue points while you are incapable of speaking English. That's probably why you can't seem to grasp what I'm saying. Some of the most educated people in history were self taught. The reason for that is because we have no boundaries of a classroom but still read, take notes on, and study the same material that is presented by universities. Every piece of information that I have used in this argument can be referenced in peer reviewed studies. You must be google taught.

@71sketch17 @corourke Translation: "You disagree with me, your English is bad. You disagree with me, your English is bad." Cats are measurable, there are an infinite amount of cats. Particles are measurable, there are an infinite amount of particles. Google, at it's best, provides definitions and the preview to Wiki entries. While I understand that it was a joke, it was poor, because Google doesn't even do anything; the punchline was just bad. But I guess you disagree and therefore I'm poor at English. 

71sketch17
71sketch17

@corourke @71sketch17 Cats are a compilation of frequencies. I'm referring to wave patterns, not the things that tightly wound wave patterns can form. Every number has its own frequency just like every word, every emotion, every color, every planet, etc. If numbers are infinite than frequencies must also be since you need a frequency in order to communicate a number. Ask any Quantum Physicist about how many energy patterns exist and I guarantee they will provide you with similar information. You don't even have a valid argument anymore. Yes, I am making fun of your English because you are failing to make points by using poor wording. However, it doesn't matter as your argument is also failing. Your attempt to dismiss information, while claiming to know about Quantum Mechanics, just proves how ignorant you really are.
