Finally, we will analyze the main aspects of reincarnated children and the stories they tell, so you can learn to identify whether your child has lived before.
Children Remembering Past Lives on the Media
The Memory of a Past Life Tormenting a 4-year-old Child
The belief in reincarnation is not new for researchers, philosophers, scientists and religious scholars. As we have often said, reincarnation is the belief that the soul can be transported from the body of a deceased person to a newborn, to live again as another person. Generally, the memory of past lives are forgotten, but sometimes those memories can be very present in the life of the person.
It is mainly children who can remember past lives because children are much more open to the spiritual world than adults since they have not yet been contaminated with daily mundane problems and concerns. While adults tend to reject any experience out of the ordinary, very young children have not yet been influenced by preconceived ideas that will mold and affect their perception of the world.
In the last decade, there has been an impressive number of reincarnated children, or at least children claiming to remember past lives, many of these stories being well documented by scientists who aim to demonstrate the existence of reincarnation. One such case took place in Virginia Beach, in the United States, where a four-year-old had vivid memories of a Navy soldier who died in 1983.
The memory of a past life
Michelle Lucas, from Virginia Beach, said her four-year-old son Andrew, began talking about the life of Sergeant Val S. Lewis, who was killed during a bombing in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1983. Michelle explained to the media that Andrew was absolutely terrified by the vivid and gruesome memories that no child his age should experience, or even know of. She claims not to be sure whether these can be related to a past life or to the living spirit of the late Sgt. Lewis.
“He just begins to mourn hysterically and tells me: What happens to Andrew?. And then I hear him saying: Why did you let me die in that fire?” Michelle told the media. “This really scares me, it scares me to think that he may be possessed by a spirit.” The kid remembers a past life so vividly that he looks possessed.
After this incredible past life story told by the child was made public, many experts decided to help the family in trying to find answers. The researchers were able to identify the man that Andrew claimed to have been: Sgt Val S. Lewis, who died in an attack in 1983.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Lewis was 23 at the time of his death. He was buried at the National Cemetery in Marietta, Georgia. The soldier, who was on a mission of peace was one of the 482 men who died in the marina complex in Beirut due to the explosion of a truck bomb. At the same time, other marine barracks were attacked by suicide terrorists.
“We Will Never Forget” they wrote in the grave of Sgt Val S. Lewis. “We’ve had great times together. Thank you for leading us in the right direction when we needed it.”

But the case of little Andrew is not the only one of children remembering past lives. Let’s take a look into another story of a boy who has lived before:
Luke, the boy who claims to have reincarnated and remember his past life
Luke Ruehlman, five years old, is convinced that this is not his first life. The boy claims to have been an African-American woman, who died and was reincarnated in the person he is today, reports The Huffington Post.
Ruehlman lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, and remembers with no doubt, that in his previous life he was indeed Pam Robinson, an African-American woman who died in a fire at the Paxton Hotel in Chicago, in 1993. The child remembers his past life with great detail and says he was there even when his parents named him “Luke”.
The parents, to whom the child has tried to convince since he was 2 years old of the veracity of his previous life, seem to be the most surprised. According to Erika, the child’s mother, Luke used to say: “When I was a woman, I had black hair. I used to wear earrings” said the local TV station WJW.
When his mother asked Luke about this Pam, she states he could recall the process of reincarnation. “I used to be Pam, but I died. I went up to heaven and saw God. He brought me back and I woke up. I was a baby and you called me “Luke”.
The confidence with which the boy spoke, made his mother do some research on the alleged “Pam Robinson.” To her surprise she found an old article that mentioned Pamela Robinson, who died in the fire at Paxton Hotel in 1993, jumping from a window of the building.
Erika confirms that it was impossible for the kid to know the story of Pam for himself. She claims that it took her a couple of days to process everything, and that she could not sleep. “I thought about it constantly,” she said.
The mother wanted to go further on her research and managed to contact the relatives of Pam, she was told that she was a fan of Stevie Wonder, coincidence or not, music that Luke loves.
But the past life stories told by the child suddenly stopped. “It was as if he let her out. He finished and then he had nothing else to say about it.”
The mother and child appeared in a documentary called “The Ghost Inside My Child“, broadcast on Lifetime Movie Network. This allowed the kid to be put to the test.
“I found a picture of Pam and put it on a piece of paper along with several other photos. I never thought he would pick the right picture” she said. “I do not recognize any of them but I remember when this was taken.“ Said the boy, pointing to the photo of Pam.
The family says they do not seek fame or money. “We did not receive any money for the documentary“ she said.
Although many people do not believe in these past life stories told by children, it is interesting to see what a large number of cases, some of them well documented by science, can prove the existence of reincarnation, a phenomenon considered one of the great mysteries of life and history.

Reincarnation Stories Involving Children: Finding Out if your Kid is a Reincarnated Child
Here are some signs that your child has reincarnated at least one time:
- They are is very mature for his age
- Your child may be young, but is apparently very mature for their age. It is quite amazing when you think about it. If they use big words, they understand big concepts and ideas.
- They think deeply.
- Their reactions don’t seem to be quick, instinctive. They seem to think very thoroughly. They might like to listen to music and read books for adults rather than those their friends of the same age enjoy.
- They seem to understand or know other languages
- Kids who may be remembering a past-life sometimes have knowledge of the language they spoke, such as a 6-year-old boy who was able to translate the words of Adolf Hitler even though none of his relatives knew German.
- They do not get along with other children.
- Other children seem immature beside them, right? This is because, as older souls, they are more experienced and may disagree with the younger souls.
- They tend to ignore authority.
- This is a very difficult aspect of having a reincarnated child. They often refuse to do what they are told to do. Look carefully, of course, but understand that they can do this for the mentioned reason.
- Children who had a previous life often experience night terrors. They may have their eyes wide open, while living in the midst of a terrible nightmare.
- Reincarnated souls tend to need solitude. Usually they are introverted and need time to recharge after a birthday party. They always appreciate people who simply enjoy being silent like them.
- They ask questions about everything.
