  • A sweet 6-year old girl looks up at her mom and in  a very serious voice tells her, “I wouldn't sleep  

  • in your bedroom if I were you.” The mom has kind  of grown used to her daughter saying freaky stuff  

  • to her, but still, it comes as a shock. What is  the girl seeing? What is behind her dark thoughts

  • To better understand this girl, you have to  know that she doesn't even think her parents  

  • are her real parents. She once announced to her  alleged imposter parents that her real mom and  

  • pop were dead. She said to them, no big dealyou're just my second set, I'm ok with that.  

  • If that isn't disturbing enough, the girl sees  what she callsskeleton menrunning around  

  • the house. They run through walls, they  inhabit the room where her parents sleep.  

  • Sometimes, dressed as soldiers, they walk through  the living room while everyone is watching TV

  • This is a true story, well allegedly, and the  girl is now grown up and remembers nothing  

  • about accusing her parents of being fake. She  can't recall ever seeing the skeleton men. She's  

  • forgotten all about a friend she used to have who  lived in the spooky attic. That friend, Felicia,  

  • was of course a figment of the girl's imagination. But the question is, what was going on in that  

  • girl's head? As you'll see today, she's one of  many children who say the creepiest stuff to  

  • their parents. In fact, some kids say they have  past lives, and they make a very, very strong  

  • case for that being true. They remember entire  villages where they've never been. They know  

  • their old houses, their old lovers, the clothes  they used to wear. They know things they just  

  • shouldn't know. It's frankly unbelievable, but  sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction.  

  • Other times, well it's just fiction. Let's now have a look at some  

  • amazing cases of reincarnated kids. A child was born on April 10, 1998,  

  • in the state of Louisiana. He was named  James Leininger, son of Bruce and Andrea

  • He was a healthy baby and a joy to his  doting parents, but not so long after he  

  • learned how to talk, he announced something  incredibly strange to his mom and pop.  

  • He told them that they were in fact not his  parents. In the year 2000, the two-year-old  

  • told his parents that he remembered being an  air force pilot during the second world war

  • Don't turn off yet dear viewers, because  you're about to hear that young James had  

  • a very convincing story. It's not the most  convincing past-life story you'll hear today,  

  • but it's up there with the best. Ok, so James might not have had  

  • those memories had his parents not taken him toWorld War II exhibit. No sooner than he got there  

  • he was absolutely fascinated by the planes he sawHe was so fascinated with planes that his parents  

  • took him to the exhibit a second time, but on  seeing one plane in a hangar James suddenly became  

  • quiet and looked quite sad. After that trip, he  developed a habit of just repeating the words,  

  • airplane crash on fire.” He would then take  his toy planes and smash them down on the  

  • kitchen table, so hard that he destroyed  the planes and made dents in the wood

  • Ok, thought his parents, our kid seems a bit  traumatized by the war exhibit, maybe we made a  

  • mistake taking him in the first place. Things got much worse

  • James then started waking up in the middle of  the night just screaming and screaming. Sometimes  

  • he'd scream and then shout, “Airplane crash on  fire!” One time his mother and he dropped his  

  • father off at the airport and James' reassuring  words to his pop were, “Daddy, airplane crash  

  • on fire!” James was starting to become a bit ofdowner, but he had many more surprises in store

  • He started having hissy fits. He'd just writhe  around screaming, kicking, punching, shouting,  

  • Airplane crash! Plane on fire! Little man can't  get out!” After a few weeks of this he started  

  • telling his parents that during the war he'd flown  a fighter plane called a “Corsair.” 6 months short  

  • of his 3rd birthday he told them he'd flown his  plane off a boat called theNatoma.” Unless he  

  • was secretly using Google, he just couldn't have  known such a boat existed. His father went online  

  • and discovered that during the war there was  such a boat. It was the USS Natoma Bay, an escort  

  • carrier that sailed in the Pacific Ocean. His parents, now truly spooked,  

  • asked James a number of times the name of  the little man in the plane. For a while,  

  • James kept telling them that he was the little  man, but after a while, he said the words, “Jack  

  • Larsen.” He told his parents that Jack Larsen  was in the plane with him when it was shot down

  • His father gave him a book called, “The Battle  for Iwo Jima 1945” and James looked at all the  

  • pictures. When he saw a picture of the Mount  Suribachi dormant volcano James told his pop,  

  • That's it, that's where my plane was shot down.”  The father turned to his son with an incredulous  

  • look on his face and James reiterated,  “My airplane got shot down there, Daddy.” 

  • James' father didn't give his son up to the  local mental health facility and instead  

  • looked for veterans of the war that had been on  the USS Natoma. He found one, and guess what,  

  • he'd served with a guy named Jack Larsen. This was all getting a bit much now for James'  

  • parents, so they started researching children  who claim they've had past lives. They found a  

  • woman named Carol Bowman who'd written a book on  the topic and following her advice they assured  

  • James that the past was the past and he didn't  have to worry about it. The war was over. He was  

  • now safe. James' nightmares stopped after that. James' third birthday passed, and he had taken  

  • up a new hobby: drawing battle scenesHe signed all his sketches James 3,  

  • and when asked why, he told his parents it  was because he was living his third life

  • This doesn't make sense until you know  that James's father found something out  

  • when he attended a Natoma Bay reunion. He  discovered that a John M. Larson had served  

  • on that ship. If you don't know, John's  are sometimes given the nickname Jack

  • The father found out that Jack had actually  survived the war, although he wasn't at the  

  • reunion. Not one to give up, the father  went looking for Jack and he found him.  

  • Jack told him that only one pilot had  crashed after taking off from that ship.  

  • His name was James M. Huston, Jr. The 21-year  old from Pennsylvania had been shot down  

  • during the Battle of Iwo Jima. Now we have James  senior, James junior, and James the freaky kid

  • Huston was shot down during an eight-plane  assault. Through research, James' father  

  • discovered that the plane next to Huston's  was flown by none other than Jack Larsen.  

  • His father was now convinced that his son  had once lived the life of James Huston Jr.  

  • James' parents claimed that their son gave  them many details about the war and the stuff  

  • he'd told them about his other family life was  confirmed by the real James Huston's sister

  • Ok, so you might now be thinking,  “FRAUD!”, especially when you hear  

  • that his parents made money from a book they  wrote about the case of their strange son.  

  • But you should know that his case has been  investigated thoroughly, and it seems that  

  • no one thinks the whole thing is a hoax. Investigators think it's more likely that  

  • James lived in some kind of fantasy world that was  triggered by that first visit to the war exhibit.  

  • That might explain the nightmares, but it  doesn't explain Jack Larsen and James Huston.  

  • James could not have read about those  names and there are no known TV shows  

  • that have featured them or the Natoma. This is what one investigator concluded after  

  • very lengthy research, including talking  many times to all the people involved

  • The documentation in James's case provides  evidence that he had a connection with a  

  • life from the past. On the face of it, the  most obvious explanation for this connection  

  • is that he experienced a life as James  Huston, Jr. before having his current one.” 

  • Are you convinced? You know that children have  vivid imaginations and you know that any child  

  • psychiatrist will tell you that it's not out  of the ordinary for young children to be rather  

  • obsessed by death, dead people, ghosts. Stillreincarnated kids...that's not easy to believe

  • Now you need to hear this: In the 1950s a British couple  

  • named Florence and John Pollock had two kidsJoanna and Jacqueline. The kids had a happy  

  • childhood and were inseparable. One thing you  need to know is that Jacqueline had a big scar  

  • on her forehead from an accident and Joanna had  a birthmark on the left side of her stomach

  • To cut a long story short, they were both  killed when a car struck them on a country road.  

  • Joanna was 11 and her sister was 6. It was  a big case at the time because it seemed  

  • that the female driver had driven right into  them after swerving around on the road. That  

  • driver took her life shortly after the accident. Some years later, the couple had more children,  

  • twins they named Gillian and Jennifer. The  father was convinced that these two new girls  

  • were Jacqueline and Joanna reincarnated and he  was more convinced when he saw that Jennifer  

  • seemed to have a funny mark on her forehead  that looked like Jacqueline's scar. Her sister  

  • also had a birthmark where Joanna had had one. These two twins suddenly started to call their  

  • toys the same names that the deceased kids  had called them. They knew of landmarks to  

  • places they had never been to. They knew  what school the dead girls had attended

  • Things then got quite dark. The young twins started playing a  

  • game that involved one girl lying on the floor  and the other girl pretending to attend to her  

  • bloodied head. Not long after that, whenever the  pair walked near a car they'd start screaming

  • The strange case came to the attention ofparanormal psychologist named Dr. Ian Stevenson.  

  • He studied the girls for many years, often  following them around while they were growing  

  • up. His conclusion was they were reincarnations  of their deceased sisters. He was very aware that  

  • the sisters' behavior could have been the result  of the father thinking they were reincarnations,  

  • but after spending so much time with them  he concluded that this just wasn't possible.  

  • He believed the girls were so young they couldn't  have possibly learned their crazy behavior.  

  • Something strange was afoot said the doctor. Still not convinced?  

  • You will be by the time this show is over. Can you imagine if your three-year-old son  

  • suddenly started saying that he had been shot  to death? That's what Kakshappa Ishwara told  

  • his parents in 1975. His parents didn't believe  a word of it, but then his twin brother, Indika,  

  • started to remember a past life of his own. In  fact, Indika remembered so much that his parents  

  • were able to find out who he was speaking of. They  actually went to visit the dead kids' parents and  

  • immediately Indika fell in love with them. Then there was the case of the reincarnated  

  • Burmese twins. They said they had been Japanese  soldiers during the war. They spoke a language  

  • no one could understand, and they demanded  to be taken back to Japan. They were girls,  

  • but they acted like boys while growing up. Balderdash! you're thinking because you don't  

  • believe a word of this and you like  to say balderdash a lot in a manner  

  • that suggests you are an authority on matters. We don't blame you for either of those things,  

  • but you need to hear more  before you make up your mind

  • Now we will introduce Ryan. When Ryan was  four, he had a very vivid imagination,  

  • so much so his parents would often hear him  shout, “Action!” from his bedroom. The kid used  

  • to think he was directing his very own movies. There was a problem with his colorful imagination,  

  • though, and that was the fact he had  terrible night terrors. He'd scream  

  • and scream in his sleep, and then when his  parents woke him up, he'd tell them, “Mom,  

  • my heart exploded in Hollywood.” They took him to  a doctor and the doctor said he'll grow out of it

  • He kept on having those nightmares and then one  time after he was awoken, he told his mom that he  

  • thought he had lived the life of someone elseHe said he'd lived in a big white house with a  

  • large swimming pool. The place was in Hollywood,  a very different place to Oklahoma where he lived

  • His mother didn't really believe her son had  lived in Hollywood, but the now five-year-old  

  • Ryan went on about it every day of the week. He  was totally convinced of this other life. The mom  

  • reluctantly brought books home from the library  that contained photos of Hollywood in the past.  

  • On one occasion they were looking through one of  the books and Ryan stopped at a particular photo.  

  • He said, “Hey mom, that's George, we didpicture together.” He then looked at another  

  • photo and said, “That's me. I found me.” The  movie was a 1930s hit called, “Night After Night.” 

  • The strange thing is, the book didn't  provide any names of the men in the photo,  

  • so Ryan's mom did a bit of investigatingShe found out the guy her son had said was  

  • named George was in fact named George. He was  George Raft, a movie star. The problem was that  

  • she wasn't able to find out who the other guy was. She then went online and found Jim B. Tucker,  

  • a psychiatry professor who's spent years  investigating the claims of people who say  

  • they have lived past lives. It should be said  that Tucker is a serious scientist, and he looks  

  • at every angle when investigating these claims. Tucker turned up at Ryan's home with four black  

  • and white photos. Three of them were random  people. When Tucker asked Ryan if any of the  

  • women were familiar to him, he pointed to  one. She was the wife of a guy named Martin  

  • Martyn. This guy was the man in the photo  who Ryan claimed to have been. The reason  

  • he was so hard to track down is that he had  only been in movies as an uncredited extra

  • Tucker didn't stop there. He went in search of  Martyn's living family and he found his daughter.  

  • At first, she wanted nothing to do with Tuckeror some crazy kid, but when Tucker told her lots  

  • of intimate details about her father that Ryan had  told him, she was flabbergasted. There was no way  

  • this kid could have known those things. There  were dozens of facts. Here are some of them

  • Ryan said he'd been a dancer on Broadway. TrueHe said he'd been a talent agent and worked with  

  • people who'd changed their names. True. He said  he got sunburnt a lot. True. He had two sisters.  

  • True. His mom had curly, brown hair. True. He had  four wives. True. He had a green car and his wife  

  • had a black car. True. He had an African maidTrue. He owned a piano. True. He said his home  

  • where he'd lived as Martyn had the wordRock”  on it. True. He said he'd lived at 825 North  

  • Roxbury Drive in Beverly Hills. True. He said he'd  been friends with a man named Senator Fivenot  

  • true. Her father had been friends with a man  named Senator Ives. All in all, Ryan knew over  

  • 50 facts about Martyn's life, and most of  those facts were impossible to find online

  • When Ryan was introduced to the person who was  his daughter from a past life he was scared.  

  • Remember Ryan was just a young kid then. He hid  behind his mom and said something had changed.  

  • His mother told him that people had to  grow up. Ryan told her that he never ever  

  • wanted to go back to Hollywood. He didn't  much like his daughter as an old woman

  • Tucker has investigated over 2,500 cases  and to this day scientific research  

  • can't really explain what's going on. Now your mind is sufficiently blown,  

  • go watch this, “Disturbing Wikipedia  Pages.” Or, have a look at this

A sweet 6-year old girl looks up at her mom and in  a very serious voice tells her, “I wouldn't sleep
