When my daughter was 2, I was giving her a bath & sighed deeply, frustrated with the 2 year battle of ANY water touching her face = a full-blown meltdown. She looked up at me & said:

“I just scared, mommy, I drownded last time I was alive” & went back to playing with bath toys

Same thing happened w/ my son. His imaginary friend’s name was Jon. My brother Jon died 2 years before my son was born. I had pictures of Jon, and I said one time to my son “he would have loved you”, and my kid said “oh he does, and he misses you”. I cried in the closet.

When my nephew was three, he told us about a dog that was at the foot of his bed, I guess, protecting him…he described my family dog that we had to put down the spring before he was born which he’d never seen pics of.

When I was little I saw an old lady watching me sleep and my mom thought I was nuts. Found a photo album as an adult with an old yellowing photo from 1910- she was my great great grandmother, and instantly recognized her as the lady who watched me sleep

Whilst my mum was pregnant, there were extreme complications. she was told she the baby would probably die.
then my dog (shadey) died suddenly and miraculously the complications went away. my mum gave birth to a healthy baby girl and as a toddler she told us she could see shadey.

From the time my brother could talk he would have full conversations when he was in his room alone. one night my dad was in the hallway listening (out of my brother’s sight) & as soon as my dad was about to walk in my brother said, “no wait, where are you going?”

My nephew when aged 2 told us about when he was “a fighting man in Botswana”. We gave him a globe and he pointed at it…..”I lived there”.

Also, when I was 10 I saw my granddad who lived 2k mi. away in the doorway of my room for a split second. Next day I got in the car after school and before Mom could say a word, I blurted out “someone’s dead.”
Granddad had passed in the night.
Haven’t thought abt this in years.

My son went to my ex mother-in-law’s house for Christmas when he was three. He came back and said “I saw Grandpa! No one could see him but me, but he was happy!”

His grandpa died a few months before I got pregnant with him. Lights stayed on that night.

When I was younger I had full blown panic attacks if I ever saw a volcano on TV. I would tell my mom how I was a little girl and died with my brother and family when dust came out of a mountain and burned out chests so we’re all convinced I died in pompeii

My 3 year old will often talk about her friend George, and how he wears fun hats and likes to blow bubbles. That is her great grandpa. He died a full decade before she was born. She happens to share his birthday.

Ok chills and shivers now! When my uncle was a young child, he was “taken over” for about an hour by his dead grandma, he spoke Italian (didn’t know more than a couple words IRL)in her dialect and addressed dead relatives. He swore he never remembered a thing thru his dying day.

When I was younger I used to have dreams of my loved ones passing away. The crazy part…. every family member I had a dream about eventually died the way I described it 6mths-1yr later…. My parents took me to a therapist after the 3rd Family Member Lol

When my son was barely 2 years old, and still couldn’t form sentences, he was using words like “bombs, explosions, ears ringing” which we wouldn’t have been teaching him or he wouldn’t have seen any where. He also likes music from the ww2 period. Weird…

I remember when I was about 4 I would sing this song to help me go to sleep. Much later on in life, I heard the song in the background of a VHS and asked my mom about it, apparently it was a song my grandmother wrote like 20 years before I was born. She died 6 years b4 I was born

My cousin who works at a bank once took her sons to work. as they were waiting, one of them randomly said to the lady sitting next to him that she was under arrest and has the right to remain silent. within a month that same person was arrested for stealing millions from the bank
