Poet William Wordsworth expressed the idea that we gradually lose our intimate knowledge of heaven as we grow up, observing that “our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting” of our previous existence in Spirit.
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer and co-author Dee Garnes had often talked about how the ones who know the most about God are those who have just recently been wrapped in the arms of the Divine: our infants and toddlers. In fact, Dee had an interaction with her own young son that convinced her of his acquaintance with our Source of being. Curious about this phenomenon, Wayne and Dee decided to issue an invitation to parents all over the globe to share their experiences. The overwhelming response they received prompted them to put together this book, which includes the most interesting and illuminating of these stories in which boys and girls speak about their remembrances from the time before they were born.
Children share their dialogues with God, talk about long-deceased family members they knew while in the dimension of Spirit, verify past-life recollections, give evidence that they themselves had a hand in picking their own parents and the timing of their sojourn to Earth, and speak eloquently and accurately of a kind of Divine love that exists beyond this physical realm.
This fascinating book encourages all of us, not just parents, to take a much more active role in communicating with our planet’s new arrivals . . . and to realize that there is far more to this earthly experience than what we perceive with our five senses.
MEMORIES OF HEAVEN is a compilation of stories, in which (most often) parents recollect times when their children were young and expressed having memories of heaven, or a time in which they were with God, prior to being born. There is also a section in the book that shares stories of children recollecting past lives lived, and not only past lives, but ones in which they were surrounded by the same people but in role reversals. For example, the boy who is a child now, recalls a life before, in which he was his mother's father.
This book wasn't entirely what I expected due to the fact that it was merely a compilation of anecdotes from parents. Some of the anecdotes were super short and many of them were almost exactly the same recollections. I suppose the author took these similarites and viewed that as "proof" or findings that there, is in fact, a time when we are in heaven prior to earth, and furthermore,. she expresses the opinion that we choose our parents. Too many of the stories were too similar and not profound enough for me to find anything concrete in them or even fascinating for that matter. In fact, after a few pages, it was hard not to get bored with the same thing over and over. In addition, my problem with this line of thinking that we choose our parents is that I find it hard to believe that a baby (or a soul) in heaven would choose a child molester or a rapist for a parent. That's just is crazy to me. My own personal feelings aside of reincarnation and the concepts in this book, the book was just okay for me. It wasn't something I would recommend buying merely from the standpoint that all of the anecdotes were almost exactly the same and the book was almost all comprised of these short anecdotes. It's something I could probably find on Google or by asking people for stories via social media. That just does not justify a book to me.
