It was a typical night with my chatty 3-year-old daughter, when she suddenly blurted out something that sent shivers down my spine. She said, “You know when Natalie (her baby sister) was a baby, she had a ******, and some ladies came and cut it.” It took me a moment to process her words, and then it hit me – this might be a past life memory she’s recalling.

Curiosity got the better of me, so I asked her more about it. I wanted to understand what she was trying to convey. I gently probed, “What happened after they cut it, sweetie?” She thought for a moment and then replied, “The girls drank some water.”

To be honest, it both amazed and scared me. How could my little girl have such vivid memories of another time and place? It’s like she’s seeing things from a different perspective, something beyond our everyday experiences.

Part of me wants to encourage her to share more, to explore these memories, and understand what they mean. But another part of me worries about how it might affect her, whether these memories are real or just a product of her wild imagination.

For now, I’ll take it one step at a time. I’ll let her lead the way and share what she feels comfortable sharing. As a parent, it’s a delicate balance between supporting her and making sure she feels safe and secure.
