Stevenson, Dr Ian - Child with three buffalo and two cows
Type of spiritual experience
There are two ways in which this could be interpreted. Either we view it as a ‘past life’ of the child in which case this is perception recall.
The alternative is that somehow the child has gained access to perceptions that are not its own – a form of inter composer communication. In the first instance it provides some small proof of reincarnation if the second applies it does not.
There is a third option. That somehow a bridge has been formed [perhaps at the hospital] between the child and dead person, for example, a blood transfusion.
A description of the experience
Tom Schröder – Old Souls [documenting the case histories of Dr Ian Stevenson]
[Dr Stevenson said] When the subjects are young children, they say 'I have a wife' or 'I am a doctor' or 'I have three buffalo and two cows'. ….......
Daniel told Latifeh 'You aren't my mother, my mother is a sheikha'. I had a case in Thailand of a man who, as a child, remembered having lived the life the life of his mother's brother. He said that he has a clear memory from his infancy in this life; when he was on his back, he felt he was an adult man and had all the memories of a previous life. But every so often meddlesome adults would turn him over and he was then nothing but a small baby helpless in the cradle. Like a tortoise he would struggle to get himself flipped over on his back again.
