What if your 3 year old child tells you that they had been another relative of yours in a previous life. Is such a thing “just a coincidence”?
Our guest on this episode, Carol Bowman, explores this topic based on her career researching phenomena relating to past lives. Carol is an author, a researcher of children’s past life memories, and a past life therapist for adults for over thirty years. We also discuss whether all coincidences are meaningful, and whether coincidences seem to increase at certain critical points in our lives.
