The Fascinating Case of Mandela Effects

Have you ever experienced this?

Since I enjoy researching material that pertains to the mind and thoughts, Mandela Effects are an obvious topic to address.

What is a Mandela Effect?

In the most simplest terms and from the original website of Fiona Broome, who helped coined the term along with a small group of “thinkers”:

The Mandela Effect is when people clearly recall an event in history – something very specific – but historical records show that something else happened.” – What is the Mandela Effect?

The idea arose when the topic of Nelson Mandela’s remembered death in the 80’s was brought up, with some claiming that they had even seen the funeral procession on t.v./on the news. (and we all know how reliable the news is…)
But according to current history, Nelson Mandela didn’t die until 2013, at age 95.

Why do so many people “remember” this wrong?

Thus, the fascinating subject was born, with many more incidences of “false memories” or inclinations that things were different than what we are now led to believe. From innocuous different spellings, changes in company logos/brands, to different events recorded in history, and so on.

There are of course MANY theories as to what’s happening when someone experiences this. Anything from false memories, to misreading word(s), even projecting our own assumptions on to what we were seeing or thought we were seeing at the time – to the more mysterious and hard to explain theories, like: alternate timelines, different universes, shift in consciousness, etc.

Listed below are just a small few of the Mandela Effects that people have experienced, but you can check out this pretty comprehensive list for more examples:

Mandela Effect: The top 500 list

What a lot of people remember:

Berenstein Bears
Moonraker: Dolly has braces
Scary Movie: “I see white people.”
Stouffer’s: Stove Top Stuffing
Apollo 13: “Houston, we have a problem.”
Star Wars: C-3PO is all gold
Monopoly: Monopoly man has a monocle
The Matrix: Morpheus says, “What if I told you”

What it actually is:

– Berenstain Bears
– Dolly doesn’t have braces
“I see dead people.”
– Stouffer’s doesn’t make stuffing
– flipflops? to “Houston, we’ve had a problem.” and back to the original quote
– C-3PO has part of a silver leg
– Monopoly man does not have a monocle
– Morpheus never says, “What if I told you”

I am going to address three of these with my own experience and opinions. With how strange and mysterious the universe (and our mind) is, who knows what the REAL truth is. But it is interesting to speculate as to how these things happen.

First, the Berenstein/Berenstain phenomena.

Now, I am going to be as humble as I can be and offer up a theory that maybe, perhaps, could be, possibly, that I was just reading the word wrong the whole entire time. BUT! I am an avid reader. Even when I was a young child. I was a dyed-in-the-wool bookworm. I was known for reading books while walking down the hallway in school. I was known for bringing books with me to the beach to just chill and read. I was known for bringing a freaking library with me whenever we went on family trips. That’s how into books I was.

And I know, for a fact, that the spelling of the Berenstein bears books threw me, because I had to ask my Mom how to pronounce the word. Was it “Berensteen“? Or “Berenstine“? If the word was spelled “Berenstain” the whole time, I never would’ve asked my Mom about the proper pronunciation. And I find it unlikely that throughout my whole reading childhood (yes, even though I was young), I still read those books NUMEROUS times and NOT ONCE catch that it was spelled with an “ai” instead of “ei”. That is more unlikely to me than the universe shifting dimensions/timelines, mass hypnosis, CERN interference, or whatever else crazy theory there is out there.

Could I be overestimated my reading skills when I was younger? …Eh, maybe. But considering this is coming from the child who would routinely correct a teacher’s misspellings or help my friends with their proof-reading skills, I’d say the chances of that are small – not to toot my own horn.

And it’s somewhat validating when you see people with the same exact experiences as you:

Do you remember this book/television series? If so, do you remember it being spelled with an “ai”, or “ei”? Or do you even “remember” it at all?

Moonraker

I can’t give a personal experience with this one, since I have never seen the movie (to my recollection), but I can offer my two cents.

What a lot of people remember is that Dolly has braces, and this is what really cements Jaw’s attraction to her. However, this Mandela Effect, in reality, Dolly never had braces.

Now while I can’t speak on personal experience with this, after a lot of research onto this subject, have come to my own opinion that yes, Dolly did indeed have braces and for some inexplicable reason, this was edited out of the films.

There is so much controversy surrounding this conclusion, however, that it’d be easy to dismiss everything as just a fluke, and I’d have to concede that she never had them. Some allege that even the actress who played Dolly claims that she never wore braces for the film. But on top of all of the “residual” evidence, have come to this final answer.

Reading a lot of people’s accounts of their recollection of watching this movie time and time again, AND knowing, for sure, that Dolly had braces, because this is what intrigued Jaws to begin with, it MAKES SENSE. In the above video we can see their attraction to each other slowly building until it culminates fully after Dolly reveals her full-fledged, toothy smile. Which, if I am surmising correctly and if all of these people’s remembrances is right, that it was indeed full of metal.

(and, actually, it is Dolly’s reaction to Jaws’ shiny metal mouth FIRST that starts the initial attraction. After seeing the metal, Dolly is taken aback – as if it is love at first sight, and this is what gets Jaws to smile broadly, after seeing Dolly’s enamored reaction. Then she smiles, allegedly showing her mouth full of metal as well.)

This would be the perfect cinematic move to match Jaws – a huge, towering giant with a mouth full of shiny metal, to a petite, tiny “doll” of a girl, with pig-tails, glasses, AND shiny metal braces. The context just fits and, like my and countless of other’s remembrance of Berenstein Bears to Berenstain Bears, they are SURE of their memory. The whole scene would not make sense otherwise.

There are also some residual evidence that points to Dolly having braces in the film:

Some believe that because Dolly doesn’t seem to have braces in other parts of the movie, this lends itself to a “film continuity error”, and so to remove this confusion, the editors of the film decided to edit out her braces entirely. Is this whole Mandela Effect nothing more than an over-blown film edit trying to correct the continuous scene errors? Or is there something more intriguing going on in the background that we’re not aware of? After all, some claim that the VHS movie that they’ve had in their family for decades definitely had Dolly with braces, but after re-watching the same VHS she no longer has them. It would be hard to explain this situation away other than perhaps they caught the movie several times on television – which DID have Dolly with braces, but the VHS they’ve had in their family had already been edited while the television version did not.

This could be just one explanation, but I am certainly not taking away their belief that even their very own version of the VHS seems to have been tampered with somehow. Could there be some kind of technological advancement that would be able to do something like this? And if so, why spend the time and effort on something so irrelevant?

The Matrix (1999)

I think most of us are familiar with this movie trilogy, and even if you’re not, you may be familiar with this line, “What if I told you…”

But what if I told you, that Morpheus never says, “What if I told you?” As a matter of fact, the line was never said at all in the whole movie.

This boggles my mind because I could’ve sworn I heard Morpheus say this. As a matter of fact, PLENTY of people remember this happening. So how are WE ALL WRONG? How are WE ALL remembering it the same way? Could it simply be due to the amount of memes and references that came out in conjunction with this movie that just kind of created a life of its own?

At the revelation of this “imaginary quote”, I had to check it out for myself. I watched the entire movie (although I have already seen it at least 20 times already) from top to bottom, making sure to not get distracted. The quote was not in there AT ALL. I was so sure it was. I informed my friend to let him know as well since I knew that he was a big fan of The Matrix, and he was shocked and astounded to learn it wasn’t there as well. He was the one who first introduced me to the Mandela Effect to begin with, and to this day the Berenstein Bears still resonates with me the most.

Some theories that people have proposed for this one, besides the misconstrued quote being referenced by many, is that perhaps we really did hear this quote in a theatrical version, perhaps, the television version, even in the trailers – yet the VHS/DVD release had it altered or edited out for some reason or another. If this was the case, why have no editors/directors/producers/actors, etc. come forth and set the record straight? Is it because they enjoy having the suspicious circumstance surrounding it to give it more publicity?

I would certainly not put it past them.

And something with the subject matter like The Matrix, which is all about questioning our reality and the truth, it would be a perfect strategy that would keep it topical.

Now what could all these, relatively frivolous, Mandela Effects mean? Does it mean people are simply misremembering their past? Could it be some grand scale shift in timelines with parallel dimensions or the like? Are some people attributing a nefarious agenda to something that’s actually easily explainable and relatively innocent? Or, could it be something more on par to Orwell’s “Ministry of Truth”?

“the Ministry of Truth is where lies are manufactured. Winston works here, rewriting old news articles to reflect the Party’s latest version of reality and throwing the old articles down a “memory hole” where they are incinerated. The Ministry of Truth reflects the Party’s belief that power is the only truth and that those with the power can make the “truth” into whatever they choose.”

– D. REYNOLDS

“For, an uninformed or misinformed populace can be confused, deceived, and directed easily by controlling powers. Keeping the people confused about who is at war with whom and what is the reality of things causes them to become involved in nothing and, therefore, no threat to the power structure.

Orwell‘s creation of this Ministry of Truth that alters history is reflective of the actions of Napoleon, who, upon his conquest of a country, immediately had the newspapers controlled by his governing powers, and it is also much like the government of Communist Russia which virtually rewrote history. During Stalin’s reign, for instance, photographs were altered, many things in print were censored, and enemies of the state were murdered.”

– MWESTWOOD, M.A.

“The primary function of the Ministry of Truth is to construct lies that fit with the government’s current interpretation of reality.

By rewriting history to fit with their current claims, the Ministry helps to construct the notion that Big Brother is an infallible, godlike leader. They also attempt to squash dissent by making it difficult for anyone to talk about the past.”

– BLACKSHEEPUNITE

“The primary role of the Ministry of Truth is to lie and keep the people ignorant of what is going on behind the scenes.”

– LORENZO WISEMAN

I can’t pretend to know or understand anything/everything about the universe, and the infinite possibilities that it could contain. But what I DO KNOW is that you can’t trust certain organizations. One of them being a group starting with G and ending in T. With one possible definition of this word meaning “to govern the mind”, if one is to look at the origin/root of the word… 

Is the Ministry of Truth too far-fetched? Is it just based on pure fiction and is an utterly ridiculous concept? Are we more willing to believe dimensions are changing and shifting based on random quantum physics and/or time travel escapades? Could most Mandela Effects be nothing more than video editing/changing names/brands and the companies are just trying to keep it on the downlow and the population is just caught up in the middle of it? Are our own minds to blame for being so out of tune with what we initially perceived to be reality? Is CERN and all of their experimentation with portals and extra-dimensional beings causing a rift and disrupting our physical reality? Is our collective consciousness conflicting with current vibrations and frequencies and messing with the time-line?

Or could there be some “Truth” to the “Ministry of Truth”?

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.

Media Addiction – Does Media Affect Our Thoughts? pt. 3

Think you think for yourself?
Well, think again.

When I was younger, I used to think that all the people that claimed that violence on t.v., movies, music, etc. made on impression on us, were ridiculous.

I ardently believed that people were conscious enough to come to their own decisions and thought patterns, and ridiculed those that speculated otherwise.

Perhaps that was me jumping on the bandwagon of mocking the alleged “conspiracy theorists”. Calling them crazy and uninformed.

Well, who's laughing now?

(Well, I suppose it’s no laughing matter, but at least I’ve finally come to the realization that I was wrong.)

Before I delve in, what do you think? Are you here on this page because you believe the same thing? Or are you here because you think it’s a ridiculous concept like I once did?

Disclaimer: This website promotes love, kindness and compassion. However, in order to strive towards that, we must also expose the negativity surrounding us on a day to day basis. This post delves into some dark material that we should be aware of in order to guide us towards a better future.

Expanding Awareness Relations

If you’ve read my previous posts: How do we Find the Truth? and When News Media Lies, you already know about the levels of deception and manipulation that these “sources” have propagated to the population. (With the help of the CIA, I might add.)

So is it that much of a stretch to contemplate on this idea?

If that’s not enough of a reason, I will be addressing other points that might provide a little more insight into this kind of “mind control” programming.

Welcome to the 3rd part of this series “Does Media Affect Our Thoughts” – “Media Addiction”.

Link to part 2 – Propaganda in the Media

Slave to Social Media?

If you’ve had any foray into the social media blowout, I think most of us can admit, at some point in our life, that we have been reeled in by the “glamour” and whirlwind of a social media online presence.

I had a brief bout of this on a few media platforms. I won’t say the names of them (a couple of them were popular forums – some, not some well-known), but during that brief time even I could feel the pull of the social media attraction and allure.

And, perhaps surprisingly, I don’t have a facebook account. I refuse to get one, as a matter of fact. But I think with as many people who do have one know, the appeal of getting views and comments and likes can be quite euphoric. Just having the positive feedback can boost one’s self-esteem.

However… on the flip side, not getting any comments or views, or getting a lot of dislikes (or no likes/dislikes in general), negative feedback… can have a detrimental effect. This particular topic will be covered more later in this post when I address depression and anxiety.

But to continue with the slave-type addiction to media, what are your thoughts? Do you, personally, feel as if you’re addicted? Do you see your friends, families, classmates, etc. fallen victim to this scenario?

A common theme I see is when everyone (and I mean, absolutely everyone) in a particular area is on their phone. Perhaps you’ve seen the same situation. Unless you were eyes-deep into your phone as well.

With everyone distracted by their phones, if anything important happened around you, would you know?
Most of us own a phone, or a tablet, laptop... all of the above, even. But can we make the conscious decision to put these devices away to appreciate the world around us, and make actual personal connections?

Personal Experience

I know one that has happened to me, personally, was 3 years ago, while sitting in the DMV, with about 15 other people. I AM NOT LYING when I say that EVERY SINGLE PERSON was on their phone. It honestly felt like I was sitting in a movie and slowly coming to the realization about what a hold the media has on us. It was eerie. And it reminds me of this very profound saying:

“We have never been more connected; yet never so alone.”

Now this alone doesn’t mean we’re addicted, necessarily. Right?

You’re right. But some of these other examples are a somber look into this very real dilemma:

This site: psychologytoday.com asks some very important questions to evaluate one’s use of social media:

    • Do you spend a lot of time thinking about social media or planning to use social media?
    • Do you feel urges to use social media more and more?
    • Do you use social media to forget about personal problems?
    • Do you often try to reduce your use of social media without success?
    • Do you become restless or troubled if you are unable to use social media?
    • Do you use social media so much that it has had a negative impact on your job or studies?

If you feel as if you are having problems with being addicted to media, social or otherwise, then don’t fret. Thankfully, there are many steps you can take to reduce the pull that technology has on us. From the same site, they list several ways you can come to terms with this addiction: “Top Tips for a Digital Detox: 12 ways to help you cut down on your technology use

Here are a couple of very nice reads into a self-reflected awareness of their social media addiction, and their efforts to curtail it:

Social Media Addiction: A Personal Story – Erin C.
How Social Media Is Affecting Our Focus – Jamie Eiland

Interestingly, The Social Dilemma (Netflix film which came out just a month ago) covers this topic, which features several people that have worked (or still work) at big tech industries, such as Facebook, Google, Youtube, Pinterest, Tumbler, as well as others. Even they, the creators and designers of some of these addictive programs, are against their own creations; urging the viewer to reduce their screen time and realize that there are many ways that we are being manipulated. Many even confess that they refuse to let their children on to social media; at least until they reach an acceptable age.

Be Aware

I have to add a precaution to this film; there are many aspects to it that I agree with, however, there are also a few to me, that I view as a red flag. Namely that of when they mention “conspiracy theories” – again, casting it in an unflattering light – a very common tactic of manipulation, and a couple of situations pertaining to this. Please be very discerning about these kinds of topics. The film itself mentions fake news and how easy it is to fall for something that’s not necessarily true, thanks to all the deception and lies that are deliberately enforced to push a certain agenda/propaganda, yet seem to turn around and do the same thing. Attempting to “debunk” certain topics. Again, I ask that you be aware of any ways that you may be coerced or manipulated into believing a certain narrative.

Other than that unfortunate addition to the film, it did seem to touch on a lot of subjects that are a very real problem in our social media age. And it does raise an important subject to be discerning, because certainly, not every “conspiracy theory” is true, but there are alarmingly many that have been proven to be true.

25 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out to be True – (Another sad fascinating fact, 23 out of 25 of these “theories” involve the government (most from the US)).

Where Does the Time Go? (and the moral ethics?)

Perhaps some people still don’t think an addiction to media is that bad. Or maybe people are just making it a big deal.

Well….. take a gander at the link below (or not… it is a harsh and cruel reality check into some of the atrocities going on around us) and tell me if people are just blowing this out of proportion. These are tragic and horrific accounts of people choosing video games/media over real life people (including themselves):

15 Bizarre Deaths Caused by Video Gamestheclever.com. Some devastating accounts due to media addiction from this site (visit the link for a full list):

  • “In 2010, a South Korean couple ended up spending so much time raising their digital baby, in turn neglecting their real life baby, who ended up dying of prolonged malnutrition.”
  • “In 2007, a Chinese man engaged in an unknown online video game for three consecutive days at an internet café.” … “fixated on the computer for 72 hours straight, the man finally dropped dead out of exhaustion.”
  • “17 year old, Daniel Petric, shot his parents because they wouldn’t let him play Halo 3. He allegedly shot both of them in the head, instantly killing his mother. His father survived. – kotaku.com
  • “October 2010, Alexandra Tobias was playing Farmville … and she got so addicted that she apparently forgot that she had a three-year-old son. Her attention was taken back to reality when her son cried out of hunger, and instead of feeding her child, she responded by shaking him to death…”
  • “In the fall of 2007, according to his mother, Shawn Woolley killed himself as result of a lack of socialization and detachment from reality caused by endless hours of playing EverQuest.”

This site mentions 3 video gamers that regret their decision to allow video games to pull them into their addictive grip:
Video Games Ruined My Life: 3 Gaming Addiction Stories – healthyplace.com

There are many more events attributed to video games, especially, but also media in general. And as you may have noticed, the articles I’m making on this topic don’t just mention “social” media, but “media” as a whole. That can range from anything as social, internet use, television, movies, video games, etc.

How many times have you caught yourself on a binge-watching marathon? Or scrolling through the internet/on facebook/youtube? How many times do you check your phone for notifications, text messages, emails, forum posts?

While all of these aren’t necessarily bad things, per se, the habitual time sink it proposes definitely is. Which is why it’s important to be aware of how much time we really are spending on these different platforms. I find myself occasionally going on binge-watches, spending way too much time on youtube (although admittedly a lot of times I’m on there for research) and checking email for communication.

The important thing is moderation. Once we’re aware of how much time we’re losing to these different arenas, the better chance we have to come back from that and consciously choose to spend time more efficiently, and essentially.

Sadly, sometimes these addictions to different media platforms disable us from focusing on real life situations: work, school, relationships, raising our own kids… As we saw with some examples above, the decision that some people have taken to choose technology over other people, is a scary and serious look into the hold that media can have over us.

Porn and Gambling Online

We’ve already covered some topics detailing the horrible situations that have erupted due to media addictions. But we haven’t even covered media addictions in conjunction with other addictions, such as porn, gambling, and shopping. (Yes, shopping.)

In this day and age, with everything so readily available to us through the internet, the instant gratification mode that many people have is more prevalent than ever. And that’s not a good thing.

Instead of us appreciating what we already have, the constant push of “more and better” things that the internet poses to us keeps us in a state of always wanting more. Many are unhappy with what they already have and instead are continually searching for ways, in their mind, to improve their quality of life. Not realizing that material items are not going to make them happy, but being there for their loved ones (and friends and strangers), will.

What kind of satisfaction do we get when we watch porn, or gamble, or buy material things? A temporary one, if that. And more often than that, if one has moral decency, guilt and shame as well.

So not only do we have the issue of spending money (and/or time) on temporary gratifications, we also have to deal with the remorse that comes after that. Now with everything, moderation is key. I’m not here to condemn anyone who chooses to do these hobbies. Although some I do feel could be eroding our conscious (and conscience) and creating a negative cycle that’s hard to get out of. But if you do feel guilt and shame, then it may be a sign to start pursuing something else.

Some helpful links that dig a little deeper into this dilemma:

So why are these hobbies so damaging to our lifestyle? Well, they’ve been known to cause, in some people: divorce, financial problems, child neglect, and crimes (sometimes even all of the above). I guess one can come to the conclusion that just about anything could result in these sad situations, and while that may be true, the focus is on this topic to show the damages it can create.

Social Anxiety / Depression

The culmination of all this evidence into media addictions has boiled down to one interesting connection: higher rate of anxiety and depression.

In every single subject covered in this series, people have experienced an increase in depression, anxiety, relationship strains, and in some tragic cases, even suicide. This has been especially true in today’s children and young teens/adults – in which media/technology started becoming a prominent part of society.

Excerpts are shown detailing just some of the psychological difficulties that have arisen due to media addictions from a few of the topics covered above:

  • “They explained BSD (buying-shopping disorder), and particularly the online form, can cause a loop of extreme cravings for buying things and satisfaction when spending money. This can then lead to a breakdown in self-control, ‘extreme distress’, other psychiatric problems, relationship difficulties and physical clutter and debt.” – dailymail.co.uk

  • “Research has shown that there is an undeniable link between social media use, negative mental health, and low self-esteem. While social media platforms have their benefits, using them too frequently can make people feel increasingly unhappy and isolated. These negative emotional reactions are not only produced due to the social pressure of sharing things with others, but also the comparison of material things and lifestyles that these sites promote.” – addictioncenter.com

  • “Research shows that 97% of Americans 12 to 17 years old play video games, and as many as 23% of gamers of all ages show signs of addictive behavior. According to the WHO, these signs include impaired control over gaming and “continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences.” And these repercussions can be seen in a person’s personal relationships, career, schoolwork, or daily life. Gaming disorder also puts people at greater risk for other detrimental issues, including:

    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • ADD/ADHD
    • Sleep disturbances
    • Irritability
    • Bad moods
    • Fatigue
    • Fearfulness
    • Suicidal thoughts

Recognize When to Seek Help

Unfortunately, because media plays such a huge part in today’s societal norms, (case in point – my 7 year old son had to get a gmail account for school… I, personally, was not too happy with that idea), the delicate issue of people’s personal habits is something that has been ignored for far too long.

Ultimately, this should be a collaborative effort between the tech industries and the adults in charge of themselves, and especially their children, to monitor these kinds of behaviors and work towards a common solution to educate ourselves of these addictive dangers, and become consciously aware of our choices and the decisions we make. Because we can’t rely on the tech industries (after all, it has been admitted that their job was to create these programs to be as addictive as possible), then it is up to us, individually, to make the right choice and break away from this harmful lifestyle.

If you feel as if you are suffering from anxiety, depression, frustration, anger, suicidal thoughts, or anything of the like, please seek help. There are numerous support groups and phone lines that can help assist you in addressing these issues.

Disclaimer: Expanding Awareness Relations shows these links as a resource for your perusal. I take no responsibility or credit on the ability of these sites to help or hamper one’s addictive behavior.

The FOMO (fear of missing out), “dopamine hits”, social interactions (whether it’s positive or negative), etc. can all contribute to an addictive behavior of the media. Once we can recognize it and address these factors in our lives, the better self-aware we can be and more thoughtful in our actions – leading to a healing and recovery of our mind, body, and soul; and, equally as important, our relationships.

Social media = social distancing? (no, not the coronavirus “social distancing”)

If we keep allowing the media to rule our lives, the possible end result is actually quite terrifying; a literal unplugging us from life and reality, and plugging us into a virtual reality that separates us from each other more than ever before.

With the ever-looming advent of powerful AI, is our future heading towards some kind of technological dystopia? We may laugh, now, at the “silly” prospect of having a real life “Terminator” or “Matrix” on our hands, but with the terrifying onslaught into the Internet of Things, microchipping, virtual reality agenda, it is honestly a serious proposal we must consider.

Are we okay relying even more heavily into all these tecnological advances? Or will we finally realize that a return to nature (in it’s pure, uncorrupted form), is the best way for society to move forward?

In part 4, I discuss the media experiments that have taken place; starring “us”, the unwitting user. In part 5, I cover the issue of data mining our information (and our minds).

Stay tuned. (no pun intended)

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader.

5 Fascinating Reincarnation Stories

Back in Time…
Is reincarnation real? Some people say yes.

What is Your Earliest Childhood Memory?

Perhaps eating cookies at a picnic with your family when you were 4?

Learning the ABC’s in preschool?

Successfully going to the bathroom for the very first time?

Me, personally, remember being a baby in a crib, and being curiously disturbed about a red cellophane covering over the window with a full clown figure on it. Don’t ask me why my parents thought this was a good idea. (Amazingly, this memory did not develop into a fear of clowns.)

But what if your memories could go even further back? When I asked my son (who was only 4 at the time) what his earliest memory was, he first said that it was of the circus (which is funny since my earliest memory was that of a clown), and of having a monkey backpack on at the time. I was impressed, because that had happened 2 years prior.

But then he kept going!

He said, “I also remember being in your tummy.”

o.O Um… what?!

He relayed amazing and fantastic tales of what life was like in the womb, including, but not limited to:

"I remember hearing you and Auntie talking about what to name me."

"I held on to your heart and was swinging on it."

(And my personal favorite, but really disgusting - warning you ahead of time in case I scar you for life - I found it funny myself. :P)

"I remember you giving birth to me and I was covered in spaghetti."

- My sweet, wonderful son

Lol. The perception of children.

You gotta love ’em.

When I heard all of these memories, I was astounded, for one. Secondly, it ignited in me a fierce curiosity and passion to dig deeper into this subject. I was eager to find out what others have experienced and the incredible implications that this would entail.

Critical Thinking

Now, before I go even further, I would like to direct you to check out my article on critical thinking. I think it would fit in nicely here.

To think of this account objectively, one must question all aspects of any experience with an open mind, and logically.

So let’s take my son’s example, for example.

When he mentioned how he heard, while he was in my tummy, my sister and I talking about what to name him, my mind instantly flashed back to that very moment. I remember being in the car and talking with her and bouncing baby name ideas off of her to hear her opinions of them. It’s one of my fonder memories of being pregnant; getting to decide what to name this amazing blessing.

I thought about some of the reasonable explanations. One of the logical conclusions I could come up with is that he overheard my sister and I reminiscing about that moment. Perhaps when he was a couple of years old or something.

I mean, it seems plausible, right? Well, that’s one possibility. I can’t just assume that’s what happened. After all, his story is that he heard it explicitly while he was in my tummy. Now, I could do myself a huge disservice by just automatically assuming the most “logical” theory. Or, I could open myself up to the possibility that what he is saying is true, and investigate it.

So that’s what I did.

Investigating the case

Lo and behold, I came across dozens of accounts of parents whose child seemingly remembers things one would assume couldn’t possibly happen. Of course, most of these accounts are anecdotal. The sources are hard to prove. And even if they are completely honest in their retelling of the memory, there’s no way to know that what they believe is true is actually what happened.

This could be a form of cryptomnesia:

“the reappearance of a suppressed or forgotten memory which is mistaken for a new experience” “the occurrence in consciousness of images not recognized as produced by the memory and its storage of events and scènes”.

Then there’s the issue that for many people, believing in the supernatural or spiritual realm is an important life-affirming and life-changing event. It gives them a sense of purpose and something to delve wholeheartedly into. This poses the problem that blindly believing something simply because you want it to be true can be detrimental and a form of psychological delusion. So one must always take any account into question and look at it with an open, unbiased but discerning and critical eye.

With that being said, let’s take a look at 5 exceptional accounts of children who have remembered so far back, that it literally transcends time and space:

1. Cameron Macauley

This remarkable testimony begins with a precocious 2 year old boy, born in Glasgow, Scotland.

As soon as Cameron could talk, he began insisting that Norma Macauley was not his “real” Mom. He instead lived in a white house on a remote island in Barra, Scotland. An island 220 miles away from his current home with a population of about 1,000 people.

He can recall his black and white dog, the sandy beaches where small planes would periodically land, and the name of his father, Shane Roberston. He died from presumably getting hit by an automobile. In Cameron’s own words, “He didn’t look both ways.”

His desire to see his old family and be reunited with his Barra Mom escalated so much that it was actually causing him emotional distress. With tears running down his cheeks, he would sob to his Mother, “I have to go to Barra. I have to go to Barra. My family are missing me.” I can only imagine how hard that would have been on Norma herself.

Visit to Chris French, Psychologist

To try and solve this mystery, Norma first took him to Chris French, a psychologist and editor of skeptic magazine. From the brief meeting we were exposed to in the “Boy Who Lived Before” documentary, Chris French offered his theory that it was more than likely due to an overactive imagination. Perhaps from watching a television program about Barra. Or from possibly overhearing details of this place from a relative or neighbor, etc.

Even with his skeptic point-of-view, however, he gave an open-minded opinion that “Maybe, just maybe, you know there’s something kind of much more interesting and challenging going on here.”

Karen Majors, Psychologist - a Different Opinion

Not quite satisfied with the “imagination” or “overhearing” speculation but willing to investigate further, Norma sought out Karen Majors, an educational psychologist who specializes in imagination and make-believe fantasies.

Here we start seeing an ever-growing enigmatic picture come together. Karen Majors seems as equally perplexed with Cameron’s scenarios, stating that his case is quite different than those of children with imaginary friends or a made-up fantasy.

Cameron’s story is consistent, and a cause of his longing and desire to return or at least acknowledge that past life. Most children with an overactive imagination or who relay adventures with their imaginary friends knows that it’s just pretend and can plan out which direction the playtime goes. That doesn’t happen with Cameron, who grows more adamant each day that he has to go back.

Jim Tucker, Psychiatrist and Reincarnation Specialist

With this new information, it leads Norma to Jim Tucker, a psychiatrist and Director of Research at the University of Virginia. Jim Tucker worked for several years under Dr. Ian Stevenson. Stevenson was a staunch researcher and one of the most notable pioneers of reincarnation studies from the 1960’s until 2007. He passed away on February 8th, 2007. Tucker became the successor of the project when Stevenson retired in 2002.

With Jim Tucker’s support, along with a camera crew to film this documentary, Norma finally sets out to Barra. She brings along her two young sons, Cameron and Martin, to explore this puzzling dilemma. While there, they investigate the claims made by Cameron about the Robertson family.

At first, their investigation turns cold, taking them down the wrong path. But a phone call from Calum Macneil at the Heritage Center reveals new information. This leads them down a different road than they were on before – both literally and figuratively.

Here, they find the elusive white house, different than what Cameron remembers, but clearly still familiar with the layout and other aspects of the land. Including a secret gate leading to the house and the window view of the beach that he remembers he looked out of to watch his brothers and sisters play.

Unsolved puzzle

And indeed, most claims add up. However, upon contacting Gillian Robertson, an alleged family member, who was able to produce photos that Cameron could identify and verify, one thing still remained a mystery.

That of Shane Robertson, Cameron’s previous life’s father.

Gillian had no recollection of the name, which could be attributed to any number of contributing factors. (After all, it would be hard for one to recall every instance of their family’s/relative’s names or heritage. Plus taking into account nicknames, middle names, surnames, etc. Or the possibility that the family was comprised of foster children.)

All this aside, the amount of compelling anecdotal evidence and strange, hard to dismiss coincidences that match up to Cameron’s detailed descriptions, came together to provide an intriguing glimpse into this incredible testimony.

On a personal note, this particular case hit home for me when little Cameron tells his Mom how he came to be with her:

“When I asked him how he ended up with me, he tells me he, ‘fell through and went into my tummy.'” -Norma Macauley

2. Shanti Devi

Born on Dec 11, 1926 in Delhi, India, Shanti Devi, as a young child, claimed to be Lugdi Bai. Bai was born on Jan 18, 1902 in Mathura (a city 90 miles from Delhi) and was married to a man named Kedar Nath.

She was able to recall several details about her past life, including:

- that she died 10 days after child birth
- physical attributes of her husband, mainly that he had a wart on his left cheek, wore reading glasses, and was fair-skinned
- her husband's name, Kedar Nath, and his favorite foods
- she recognized her son Navneet Lal even though he was a newborn when she passed away. Her explanation was that her soul could recognize his soul as a part of her.

(For an exhaustive list and fuller account, please refer to reincarnation-research.com)

Shanti Devi’s case attracted a lot of attention, not just locally, but internationally as well. Among the most famous of this is historical figure Mahatma Gandhi. He, along with a self-appointed committee of 15 people, were allowed to accompany Shanti to investigate her case. This committee included members of parliament, the media and national leaders.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (2 October 1869 - 30 January 1948)

Some Notable Recognitions

Just upon arriving at the platform from the train, Shanti was able to recognize a man mingling in the crowd as her husband’s older brother. Her reaction and response to him was so immediate and sincere that the others around could not help but feel affected.

From there, the remarkable incidences of Shanti’s memory and recollection grew even further. She was able to direct the driver to her old home and pinpoint the changes that were made since her time as Lugdi, all of which were correct.

In addition to this, she was also able to recognize her father in law. And minute details about her previous lifestyle that would have been incredible if not unbelievable if left to chance. She was also able to locate her bedroom, identified many items of hers, and was asked (tested) where the “jajroo” (bathroom) was. They asked her what “katora” meant, which she correctly defined as paratha (a type of fried pancake). Both words were commonly known to the Chaubes of Mathura, which no outsider would normally know of.

She also took them to the house where she lived with her husband for several years, correctly stating that a well was there, along with the location of a flower pot that she hid money in. It seemed apparent that she was being tested for her honesty. The well was indeed there, yet initially hidden by a rock. And the flower pot did have money in it although it had been removed by her husband.

Researchers Investigate

This media exposure attracted many curious and interested parties, including saints, parapsychologists and philosophers to study the case, as well as some critics trying to discredit or debunk these events as a hoax.

Two prominent names on reincarnation research also investigated Shanti Devi’s case. Dr. K.S. Rawat interviewed her on Feb 3, 1986 with Dr. Ian Stevenson (a well known and recognized name in the field of reincarnation research) and Dr. Pasricha. Dr. Rawat interviewed her again on Oct. 30, 1987. He also interviewed relatives in Shanti Devi’s life, as well as relatives connected with Lugdi Bai’s life.

Dr. Ian Stevenson, in 1961, also studied the sources for this case. He writes that, “The accounts available to me indicate that Shanti Devi made at least 24 statements of her memories which matched the verified facts.”

Critics Investigate, Too

There are also the critics who have tried to reveal this event as a media stunt or an outright hoax. Or perhaps an aim for a political agenda. A booklet by Bal Chand Nahata, a rationalist who interviewed Shanti Devi and some others related to the case, ended his study by saying, “Whatever material that has come before us, does not warrant us to conclude that Shanti Devi has ‘former life’ recollections or that this case proves reincarnation.”

As a rebuttal, Dr. Indra Sen, a philosopher, ended up writing a whole article to counter this skeptical theory. With the help of a hypnotist (which is not named) in an attempt to get Shanti to recollect her former life, Dr. Sen concluded that “I am confident that Shanti has certain memories which are not of here and now.”

Interestingly, one critic, Sture Lonnerstrand, with the sole purpose of coming all the way from Sweden to India in order to expose this as a false story, ended up admitting, “This is the only fully explained and proven case of reincarnation there has been.” His proclamation came after investigating Shanti Devi’s experience. He even went so far as to publish a book in 1998, I Have Lived Before: The True Story of the Reincarnation of Shanti Devi.

3. Ryan Hammons

Is reincarnation real? Ryan Hammons claims to have lived before, as Marty Martin, a Hollywood producer.

Ryan Hammons

As with many cases of children remembering past lives, Ryan Hammons, born in 2005 in Muskogee, Oklahoma, started regaling his stories at the age of 4.

At first, his play time consisted of him pretending to be a director, yelling, “Action!” as if partaking in the creation of an imaginary movie. However, this pretend play became a concern for his parents as he would wake up in the middle of the night, terrified and clutching his chest. He told his parents that he dreamed his heart exploded when he was in Hollywood. After taking him to his doctor, was told that it was simply night terrors, and that he would outgrow them.

But then one night, while his mother was tucking him into bed, Ryan suddenly grasped her hand and said:

"Mama, I think I used to be someone else."
- Ryan Hammons

Grandiose Stories

He would relate, consistently, that he lived in Hollywood, met stars like Rita Hayworth, danced on Broadway, and went on luxurious vacations overseas. Cyndi Hammons’ skepticism soon gave way to curiosity, stating that, “His stories were so detailed and extensive that it just wasn’t like a child could have made it up.”

This kick-started Cyndi Hammons into investigating her son’s claims instead of dismissing them as fantasy. Without telling anyone else, she began going to the local library and checking out books about Hollywood and showing the pictures to Ryan.

Then, after months of searching, they hit pay dirt.

While looking through one particular book, Ryan stopped at a black and white photo taken from a 1930’s movie Night After Night. He recognized a cast mate, George, who they found out was indeed a George Raft. Then Ryan excitedly pointed to the man on the right, exclaiming, “That guy’s me. I found me!”

Search for an Unnamed Man

Cyndi was unable to identify this man as this photo listed no names to it. Nor did the movie list this actor’s name as he was an uncredited extra. So she contacted Dr. Jim Tucker, who sent the photo along to an archivist in the hopes that the identity could be found.

Sure enough, the man’s name was eventually revealed: Marty Martin.

Before sharing this information with the Hammons, however, Jim Tucker arrived at their home with black and white photos of four women. He laid them out on their kitchen table and asked Ryan, “Do any of these mean anything to you?”

Ryan pointed to one. “She looks familiar.”

It was Marty Martin’s wife. The other pictures were of random women with no connection to Marty.

They were then able to confirm several statements that Ryan had made about his life as Marty through his daughter. She had been found by the researchers working with Tucker on the documentary.

Validation with Marty's Daughter

Originally, she seemed reluctant to help, but did end up corroborating Ryan’s memories:

– Ryan said that he danced in New York. Marty Martin was a Broadway dancer.

– He said that he was an agent and that the people where he worked had changed their names. It was revealed that Marty became a talent agent where stage names are often created.

– Ryan said that his street address had the name ‘rock’ in it. Marty lived at 825 North Roxbury Dr.

All in all, Ryan was able to accurately describe 55 facts of Marty Martin’s life.

But perhaps the most fascinating fact of this testimony, is that during what seemed to be casual conversation, Ryan claimed he died at 61. Jim Tucker: “He (Ryan) said he didn’t see why God would let you get to be 61 and then make you come back as a baby.” This was at first refuted by Jim Tucker since Marty’s death certificate stated he was 59.

However, upon double checking all the information, found that Marty Martin was born in 1903, and died in 1964. The death certificate was wrong, and Ryan was indeed correct about his previous life’s age.

4. Jenny Cockell

Is reincarnation real? Jenny Cockell is seen holding a picture of Mary Sutton, the lady Jenny claims to have been in a past life.

Jenny Cockell

Childhood Life

Jenny Cockell, born in Barnett, Hertfordshire in 1953, started out remembering bits and pieces of her previous life as a young child. Unfortunately, throughout her childhood, there was not much she could do to act upon these memories. But she was able to keep them alive. “I did reinforce some memories by revisiting them, talking about them, thinking about them.”

Growing up in a religious household, Jenny started to realize that remembering past life memories was not a common occurrence. While sitting in a Sunday school service, listening to a discussion about life and death and what happens after life, Jenny was confused with why they weren’t talking about what happens before life. For many years, she simply thought people weren’t talking about their past life experiences because they were in denial. Not because they legitimately didn’t remember or didn’t think it was possible.

As she was growing up, she was able to suppress these memories to a degree in order to live her current life. But eventually it started to become too much for her. Even as a new mother with 2 children of her own, she could not forget the 8 children from her past life who was left behind with an abusive father.

Adulthood

Luckily, during this time, Jenny came across a regression hypnotist who both helped, yet exacerbated her memory recall. Now, with nothing to hold these suppressed memories at bay, the past came flooding back into sharp focus.

This kick-started Jenny into doing her own research, which took her to Malahide, Ireland after being able to match this location with a map she made from her own memory. Upon arriving there, she was startled at the changes yet was still able to recognize some of the different landmarks and roads.

When she came back to Malahide, her research expanded through letters to the neighbors, whom provided her with the surname Sutton. From this new information, she was able to track down all her remaining children: Frank, Betty, Kristi, Phyllis and Sonny. After Mary Sutton’s departure, most of the children were sent to orphanages while Sonny stayed with his father as the housekeeper.

Reaching Out

Finding all of her children proved no small feat. Jenny wrote letters to all of the orphanages at Dublin, for a start. Then realized that several of them had closed down. The children were sent off to different caretakers, foster homes, and adoptions. This was part of her struggles at tracking them all down.

But she didn’t give up.

Additional help came from a priest who was able to provide Jenny with baptism records for some of her children through the Malahide Catholic Church, which gave her definite names and dates of birth.

Other forms of contact that Jenny pursued was an ad in the newspaper as well as multiple phone calls. Through all these avenues, including help from researchers at the BBC, she was able to connect with Sonny Sutton.

Family Reunion

The BBC researchers were able to conclude many of Jenny’s memories as Mary through Sonny Sutton. While being interviewed separately, they were able to confirm 9 pages of information of their life in Malahide.

Finally, through Sonny’s encouragement, Jenny began to work on a book “Yesterday’s Children”, describing these experiences. This would be the catalyst at bringing the rest of the Sutton family together. The publishers of the book were able to gather the remaining family members for a meeting with not only Jenny, but with each other, who they haven’t seen in over 30 years.

Jenny/Mary was at last reunited with her sons and daughters. There were differing opinions about how Jenny could possibly know so many details about the Sutton’s life. But they all agreed that she was indeed either Mary Sutton reincarnated, or connected with Mary’s spirit. Perhaps through a Mother’s love and heart-filled longing to see her family back together.

5. Purnima Ekanayake

Is reincarnation real? Purnima Ekanayake was able to remember several details about her life as Jinadasa.

Purnima Ekanayake

Purnima Ekanayake was born in 1987 in Bakamura, Sri Lanka. Soon after her birth, her mother noticed some hypo-pigmented birthmarks on Purnima’s body. These appeared to the left of the midline of her chest and over her lower ribs. Purnima’s mother mused at the time that this could have been due to an injury from a previous life.

If only she knew; this was just the beginning.

Wait, scratch that. I suppose the beginning would be of Jinadasa’s life, but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves.

By 3 (which the ages 2-4 are most common in children relaying past life experiences, presumably because that’s when most children learn to talk and are not yet overwhelmed with societal information overload) Purnima began speaking about her previous life as an incense manufacturer whose life came to an end by being struck by a ‘zoku uahana’ (usually means a bus or truck).

At first her parents dismissed these claims as perhaps simply ramblings of an overactive imagination. But one statement Purnima made after a traffic accident near their home caused her mother to become upset. This struck a chord with her mom and piqued her parent’s interest to investigate further.

“Do not think about this accident.” Purnima said in an attempt to console her mother. “I came to you after such an accident.” Purnima also revealed that she had a heap of iron on her body after the accident.

Near Death Experience

To add another intriguing aspect to this case, Purnima also recalled what happened after she died.

Given the term O.B.E. (out of body experience) or N.D.E. (near death experience – which in Purnima/Jinadasa’s case was an actual death), Purnima recalled that after the accident she floated in the air in semi-darkness for a few days.

She saw people mourning for her and crying, and saw her body up to and including the funeral. There were many people like her floating around. Then she saw some light, went there and came “here”.

Visiting Past Relationships

Once her parents got involved, they were able to track down the man Purnima claimed to be. They also received help from a teacher, Sumanasiri, and his brother in law who accompanied him.

This adventure took them from their town in Bukamura, 145 miles away to Kelaniya and then to Angoda. Here is where they met Jinadasa’s brother in law and business partner Wijisiri.

At first, Wijisiri was not forthcoming with welcoming these strangers to his property and asked them to leave. However, after hearing Purnima talking about their incense company and the packages they used and if he made any changes, he was finally persuaded to accept Purnima as Jinadasa reincarnated.

She was also able to correctly identify several relatives. And although she initially didn’t want to reveal this information, she admitted that Jinadasa had two wives. Another fact she revealed was the process of how their incense was made (knowledge that is not very common for a young child to know). Wijisiri himself confirmed this process to be true.

Professor Haraldsson Reveals Startling Discovery

Professor Erlendur Haraldsson conducted interviews with several witnesses throughout five visits from 1996 to 1999. He was able to verify most of the information. Out of twenty statements, Purnima was able to correctly identify fourteen elements of Jinadasa’s life. Three could not be verified, and the other three were incorrect.

The most astonishing (in my opinion) information to be gleaned from this encounter, was when Professor Haraldsson was able to obtain the post-mortem report from Jinadasa’s death. These included a detailed description and sketch of the injuries, which outlined where the tire went over his body and fractured his ribs – and eerily coincided with the prominent birthmark on Purnima’s body.

Purnima is seen here showing her birthmark. This birthmark coincides with Jinadasa's injuries.

BONUS: Kendra Carter

Kendra Carter’s case is another testimony that hits home to me personally due to the circumstances of the child remembering that she was in her mother’s tummy. Only there’s a twist:

She didn’t make it.

When she was 4.5 years old, Kendra began swimming lessons and immediately became attached to her coach. She would tell her mom that the coach’s baby had died and that the coach had been sick and pushed her baby out. Kendra’s mother was always there at the lesson and asked her how she knew these things. She replied, “I’m the baby that was in her tummy.” Kendra even went on to describe the abortion, and sure enough her mother found out that the coach did indeed have an abortion 9 years before Kendra was born.

Although Kendra’s mom, a conservative Christian, did not necessarily believe in reincarnation, she allowed her daughter to maintain a relationship with the coach. This delighted Kendra. And the interactions grew until she was spending up to three nights a week with the coach.

There was a falling out at one point, however, between the mother and the coach. This caused Kendra to become withdrawn and not speak for 4.5 months. The coach, at this point, resumed contact, but on a smaller scale, which helped Kendra out of her depression.

It is interesting to me that although, technically, Kendra in her past life as the baby, and the coach who carried her, did not have a traditional established relationship, their consciousness somehow found each other anyway, even after 9 years. Almost as if it were meant to be.

Critical Thinking Lesson:

Some possibilities of what cases of reincarnation could be:

– Real events in which a previous person’s soul or consciousness is reborn into a new body and is able to retain some of their memories.

– A form of possession or residue of someone else’s memories or spirit sharing that same space as that of a new consciousness

– Deliberate or misled stories embellished by not only the story tellers but the researchers involved as well.

– Witting or unwitting subjects of planted memories through regression therapy, past-life hypnosis, or mistaking dreams/imaginations as real life events.

– A laser focused connection to a specific person’s life that enables one to feel and remember these past memories. (Perhaps a form of accessing Akashic records?)

– A glimpse into the possibilities of quantum mechanics, energy, existence and how energy can be reproduced.

– Simple misunderstandings that were blown out of proportion or taken out of context. Or exaggerated to fit into one’s belief or narrative, whether consciously or not.

– Other, or none of the above. Or even a combination of different theories.
