Unusual play in young children who claim to remember previous lives. (Parapsychological Abstracts).
Among 278 cases of children who claim to remember previous lives, 66 (23.7%) engaged in play that was unusual for their families and had no model in family members or other obvious normal stimulus. This paper reports 25 examples of such atypical play. The play accorded with claimed memories of previous lives expressed by the children when they could speak. The child's unusual play sometimes gave the parents the first indication they had that the child was possibly remembering a previous life. In 22 cases, the child's statements were found to match events in the life of a specific deceased person. In such cases, the play was also found to correspond to some aspects of that deceased person's life, such as his or her vocation, avocation, or mode of death.
