When I was 28 my mother surprised me with a statement I'd made when I was a baby, just starting to speak. She said that she asked me where I came from and I answered by saying, "I was riding on an angel's wing, when I looked down and chose you". She had never said the word "angel" to me, nor had my father. She was so amazed and wasn't sure what to do with that information...apparently, that's why she hadn't mentioned it. Perhaps we were talking about something metaphysical when she brought it up, I don't remember.
That quote was online as I'd commented on an article on the subject of children's memories of life before birth. I'd forgotten all about until yesterday when I was contacted by a woman who'd written a book, with her husband, titled, "Cosmic Cradle, Spiritual Dimensions of Life Before Birth".
Elizabeth and Neil Carman are researching another book on the subject and asked permission to use my quote.
The reviews of "Cosmic Cradle" are amazing...5 stars on Amazon. They did 40 years of research and exploration of human consciousness and the reality of reincarnation. Theirs is a fascinating study of the soul's preexistence...and, touch on subjects like, do we choose our life and our parents.
