This daughter who remembered her entire previous family who died.

"My 3 yr old said, 'I was your mom in heaven,' Multiple times. When I was six weeks pregnant with her, my mom died unexpectedly the day she found out the secret that I was pregnant at 40 with what would be her last and 21st grandchild...

When my girl was 4, we were looking through pictures boxes. I have no family pictures posted in my house. Later that night I realized my girl took three pictures of my mom and put then in her room. She's never seen pictures of my mom before. I asked her why she took those pictures and she said, 'because I'm pretty.'"

"First when my son was 3, he told me that he was once kidnapped and the police accidentally shot and killed him when they were trying to rescue him.

When he turned five he told me he had never made it this far.

Also when he was five, we drove past my grandparents old house, they have been gone 16 & 18 years now. He told me "I used to play in that house with Pappy (my dad) when I was little, except the house used to be white"

The house did indeed used to be white and it had been painted and ugly gray. My dad also had 9 siblings, three of which died in infancy."

This daughter who remembers being a dog in her previous life.

"My daughter, right before she turned 5 was in our hall in the middle of the night, still asleep, whimpering and crying. I got her to come lay down with me and when I asked her what the dream was, she got very upset and said "it wasn't a dream I remembered". She told me she remembered when she was a bad dog, and they made her go to sleep."

"My son was three at the time. We were at a ceramics place and I was taking a wheel throwing lesson when he say to this lady "I saw you in the fire. Did it hurt when you got burned? I was there but I couldn't help you."

She turned white as a sheet and explained to me that when she was a young girl, her house caught fire and she was badly burned. She told me that used to tell her family that she followed a little boy, she'd never seen, out of her room and then out of the burning house."

"So I am raised Roman Catholic. My son is raised Roman Catholic. But I was dating this Muslim guy who would play prayers constantly (that were on YouTube). This particular day my boyfriend was playing a prayer that's supposed to protect you from jinn. My three-year-old son looked up from his coloring book said clear as day, 'now they will be gone for 1000 days' my boyfriend looked him dead in the eye and was like, 'how do you know that?' My son smiled shrugged and continued to color.

I don't know if this is true but my boyfriend explained that if you recited that specific prayer it was supposed to banish evil spirits for 1000 days. To this day I still get chills when I think about it."

"My family took everyone on a trip to see their old neighborhood. They drove by a house where, about 15 years earlier, a little girl was hit by a car and died. My cousin, who was about 4 at the time, never had been in the neighborhood, and never heard this tragic story, stopped what she was doing and said, 'Oh, that's where I died, isn't it?' She then resumed playing with her dolls (or whatever it was she was doing)."

This daughter who may be her great-great grandfather.

"My daughter was 3-4, she kept asking me, "Mommy, do you remember when you were little and I was big? I took good care of you, we went to the store all the time!" Then when her little brother was born she asked me if she could call him "Auggie" (pronounced Oggy), I asked her where she heard that name and she told me that she made it up. My great-grandfather passed away August 31st of 2001, she was born September 7th of 2011. My great-grandfather used to take me to king soopers a few times a week and he had a dog (long before I was born) named Auggie (nick name for August). Had a hard time wrapping my brain around it."

"My friend had a miscarriage before she had her first daughter. A few years ago when her daughter was about 4 a group of us were at a party and her daughter was sitting on her lap and said something along the lines of "I'm sorry I left you before mommy. I was hurting really bad and I wasn't ready." My friend asked her was she meant and her daughter said she left her before she was born but came back. Super creepy. Daughter doesn't remember this conversation and still doesn't know about the miscarriage."

This daughter who claims she "lost her children."

"When my youngest daughter was 3 years old she would very often get upset and insist I help her find her kids because they needed her. She said she was in a car accident and died, but her two children in the back seat survived and needed her. By the time she was 5, she no longer remembered, but for almost 2 years she had an intense drive to find her kids and let them know that their mommy was OK."

"We live in Ohio, took our four-year-old to Cape Cod for a long weekend. First day there we kayak with her down an inlet to a beach. She gets out, looks at the ocean and says, 'Oh it is the ocean, where I used to come before I knew Mommy and Daddy.' My wife and I just looked at each other, we were creeped out."

This son who may have been hit by a car.

"He literally told me. He was 3 and pretending to run over his lego men. When asked to stop he said,

"That's how I died isn't it?"

"No, you've never died."

"Yes I have! When I was two last time. The car hit me, my other mummy cried then I came to you."

"My cousin died from a stay bullet in '92. Nine months later his mom had another son and in a few years, they visited the house where they used to initially live when my murdered cousin was around. Kid walks in the house like he owns the place (had never been there before in his life) and was like, 'Oh yeah, mom slept here ,sis slept here, we used to play cards here' and then he goes to the room where my deceased cousin slept, 'And this was my room.'

This daughter who is wise beyond her years.

"When my daughter was four she looked at me and said, 'we've been together as long as you've been on this earth.... but I've been here a lot longer than you.' Also, just after my Mom died, I was having a rough day. She came over to me and said something to the likes of, 'time moves differently in the afterlife. What is a lifetime for you is only the blink of an eye for your Mom.' She had just turned seven when she said this."

This daughter who remembered her previous brother, Brian.

"When my sister was 3 she would go on and on about her brother, Brian. We're all girls, and we don't know where she would have heard the name. But it was all, Brian does this Brian and me used to do that, on and on. Thinking Brian was an imaginary friend I asked her where Brian was now. She said, 'He's dead, I am, too. The bomb got us and our house is gone.'"
