Past life memories are an unexplained phenomena that crops up in the news from time to time, most recently with a 4-year-old Virginia Beach, Virginia, boy whose mother is absolutely terrified by some of the vivid and macabre flashbacks that her youngster is having.
Michelle Lucas and her son Andrew have been “visited” via Andrew’s dreams and visions by a Marine soldier, who died in the Beirut, Lebanon, bombing on October 23, 1983.
Sgt. Val S. Lewis was killed in the bombing but, according to a new report from WTKR, he’s not at peace and he’s coming back to the Lucas family in the form of a boy who was born long after his death.
His mom tells the news station that he is “saying things and recalling memories that no one his age should know.”
“Scared me, scared me— I didn’t know if there was a spirit coming out of him.”
According to the station’s preliminary report, it took a “national cable channel” to help the Lucas family in trying to find answers. More details will be aired on the Monday 5pm broadcast.
Until then, there is more information available about Lewis on Find A Grave.
Lewis was 23 years old at the time of his death. He was buried in the Marietta National Cemetery in Marietta, Georgia, and one of the three memorials left on the page seems to indicate a close personal relationship with Lewis.
“You are not forgotten,” wrote Bobby Irvin in December 2011. “We had some great times together. Thanks for steering me in the right direction when I needed it most. Romans 1:16 Semper Fi”
Frighteningly enough, this isn’t the first time this year that past life memories have made a splash at the Inquisitr. In May, there was this story about a boy who was murdered in a past life.
It is, however, one of the more reputable stories that are in circulation, in part because it was an outside source that helped the family track down the name and identity of the man supposedly living in Andrew’s body.
While you may not believe in past life memories, it is interesting to see how often things like this creep up — and it’s always compelling checking the validity of claims.
What do you think, readers? Can people actually experience past life memories, or is there a more rational explanation for what the Lucas family is going through?
