For several years now I have been compiling a specific type of PBE I have termed premortal memories (PMM). A premortal memory is the recall of ones existence prior to conception. Related terms, such as 'preconception memory', 'pre-earth memory', and 'heaven memory', also refer to memories of the life we lived as spirits before coming to earth.
This is a sacred work that my husband and I have been involved in over the years, and in spite of our imperfections, we have felt guided by the spirit of the Lord and we have seen wonderful fruit come as a result of these books. I have met or heard from people who have had life-changing experiences as a result of reading our books, such as prevention of suicide, prevention of abortion, bringing an additional child into their home, and much more.
The books are hope-promoting, and shed light on the question 'why?' concerning parents, friends, place of birth, interests, trials, and so on. There is evidence suggesting we chose, or at least agreed to, many of our life experiences--there are no accidents in the big picture.
Sharing these truths is the purpose of our new book The Memory of Angels: Remembering Our Premortal Life.
Some of the stories are simple and from children. The parents report these stories to me and I love them dearly.
One simple story that recently came in:
When my son was barely three I was laying down by him one night to help him get to sleep. He said,"When we were in heaven, you told me that you'd be my mother.'
That's right, I said, figuring he'd heard this from church or something.
He got noticeably excited.'You remember that?'
'No', I said, But now I'm your mother so I must have said it.'
'Oh', he said, disappointed. 'I remember it'.
Some of the stories are from those who have had premortal memories their entire life. These people most generally have told me that they only have a partial "veil" over their mind and have always remembered a great many details of their premortal life. Others have had memories come in a near-death experience or from a spontaneous flashback. The stories are all remarkable and each one is specifically unique.
Many years ago after giving a talk in NYC to a group of over 200 people (I was there with other authors who spoke as well), I was approached by a young woman who told me that she remembered being in heaven before she was born. She wanted to tell me her story and she asked me about other people's memories that they had shared with me. I was so anxious to talk to her but I was detained from hearing her because of other obligations of the conference. I lost my contact information from her, much to my disappointment. I have never forgotten her and it is to her and others like her that this book is dedicated.
If you have had a PMM experience, I invite you to contact me if you feel inclined to share it for inclusion in my new book, Memory of Angels: Remembering Our Premortal Life before it is published in a few months. I especially appreciate accounts that come via e-mail in the experiencer's own words, such as one would make in a journal entry. These true stories are told best in the experiencer's own words. Then I can follow up with questions etc. via e-mail as well.
My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org or you may call me at 480-882-8364. Thank you for your interest.
With lots of love,
