I mentioned before that I will be giving a brief review of those books that I think might be of interest to some of you. I just finished Children's Past Lives by Carol Bowman. A densely-spaced book, it not only explores past-lives, but how we have been led away from belief in reincarnation through such events as the Second Council of Constantinople in A.D. 553. It was at this time all ideas under the banner of "pre-existence of the soul," along with other concepts and ideas, were decreed a crime worthy of excommunication and damnation.
Her book examines the healing that takes place when children, who are often dealing with specific issues unrelated to anything they have experienced in this life, can remember past life events that are affecting quality of life in this one. She uses quantitative, qualitative, first-person and anecdotal evidence to back her claims. Her book is interesting and well-written.
This book could be of interest to those exploring the idea of reincarnation, past-life regression, unexplained phobias, anxieties, night terrors, or disturbing dreams. It could be helpful for those searching for the meaning of life, and why bad things happen to good people.
She has a second book out about children reincarnating into same families that I will read another time. For now, she has given me plenty to think about.
