Nineteenth-century British poet William Wordsworth expressed the idea that we gradually lose our intimate knowledge of heaven as we grow up, observing that “our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting” of our previous heavenly existence. Dr. Wayne W.

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer and co-author Dee Garnes had often talked about how the ones who know the most about God are those who have just recently been wrapped in the arms of the Divine, our infants and toddlers. In fact, Dee had an interaction with her own young son that convinced her of this. Curious about this phenomenon, Wayne and Dee decided to issue an invitation to parents all over the world to share their experiences. The overwhelming response they received prompted them to put together this book, which includes the most interesting and illuminating of these stories in which very young children speak about their remembrances before they were born. It seems that infants and toddlers often arrive here with memories of their lifetimes in the spirit world and frequently provide evidence of this to their immediate families. They tell of dialogues with God, give evidence that they themselves had a hand in picking their own parents, speak about long-deceased family members they knew while in the dimension of Spirit, verify past-life recollections, and speak eloquently and accurately of a kind of Divine love that exists beyond this physical realm—and even of times when telepathic communication took place, as well as the ability to decide just when they would come here to Earth. This fascinating book encourages parents and grandparents to take a much more active role in communicating with their new arrivals . . . and to realize that there is far more to this earthly experience than what we perceive with our five senses.

    I found this at my library when I shelving and flipped open to a page. I was drawn in right away. They're just little stories from around the world about kids and heaven or Jesus or precognition about things they shouldn't know, but it was so interesting. I was up until almost midnight reading it straight through. I found this at my library when I shelving and flipped open to a page. I was drawn in right away.

    Let me start by saying that although I'm not overly religious, I do believe there is a spirit world and some sort of existence after death. What that involves I'm not sure. I'm open to the idea of guardian angels. I'm open to the possibility that there is much more to life and death than what has been proven to us and is known for sure. This book had me rolling my eyes. So many statements and ideas I read made me think "What a load of sh!te". These were my main issues with the book: 1.

I'm open to the idea of guardian angels. I'm open to the possibility that there is much more to life and death than what has been proven to us and is known for sure. This book had me rolling my eyes. So many statements and ideas I read made me think "What a load of sh!te". These were my main issues with the book: 1. The basis of many of the stories was one word or sentence said by a toddler and then blown up into something of "divine importance and knowledge" by the adult storyteller. Often this seemed like a big stretch of imagination. 2. The cliched sentences that were used throughout, such as "He is an old soul" and "She has wise eyes" and "God is good". Every time I came across one of these sentences I wanted to scream! 3. The concept that we choose our parents before we are born. Tell that to the large percentage of children that have spent their lives being abused or neglected by their parents. Don't even try to explain it as all part of some bigger life lesson and life plan, that is like a slap in the face for those poor children. 4. I could have done without the introductory and concluding pages of each chapter, written by Dr Dyer. He lost all credibility for me when he claimed he "accepted an invitation to experience a past-life regression firsthand". How convenient. He must've needed some material for another book. He also talked about the conception of his child and how something supernatural had taken place in the hotel room that night! Oh god, what a picture!!! Dr Dyer seems to have an almost unnatural obsession with babies and young children and the concept that they are here to teach us something. His instructions to the reader on how they should interact with their young children were super condescending. 5. The repetition. I understand that many of these accounts contain similar information in an attempt to prove that they must be real occurrences, but all it achieved was create a bunch of stories that lacked interest. I almost gave up on this book and DNF, in fact i started skimming the stories from halfway through just to get it over and done with. Luckily it was a short read.

    This was really more like a 2.5, but since that isn' t an option I gave it three. I found the anecdotes interesting, but that is really all it is; lots and lots of short anecdotes, and white space. This book could probably have saved half of the paper it was printed on. It was a fast easy read. Children definitely have lots to say, and we certainly should listen, but this is not the best book ever.

    This was a sweet book! I enjoyed reading the innocent comments that the children make about heaven. The format of this book in unique in that it is just excerpts from letters that family members submitted. They note the experience they felt when the child in their lives made a comment or recalled and experience about heaven. Find Memories of Heaven at the Westminster Public Library.

Jesus is mentioned in the text, but other doctrines are as well.

    Magnificently eye-opening... For my whole life I’ve always believed there was more to us than our physical bodies. I remember, only once, as a child stopping myself (amid getting in trouble for something I can’t even remember now what it was) and the whole room seemed to empty out of my surroundings, including the people and objects. In that moment I felt peace and asked, “who am I, why am I here?” Although the answer did not come to me at that moment because I was jarred back into “reality” with Magnificently eye-opening... For my whole life I’ve always believed there was more to us than our physical bodies. I remember, only once, as a child stopping myself (amid getting in trouble for something I can’t even remember now what it was) and the whole room seemed to empty out of my surroundings, including the people and objects. In that moment I felt peace and asked, “who am I, why am I here?” Although the answer did not come to me at that moment because I was jarred back into “reality” with the screaming voice of my mom’s boyfriend (my own father passed away when I was 7). My life after that moment seemed to just fly by. I’ve always believed in Guardian Angels. It wasn’t until I was introduced to Dr Wayne W Dyer and the whole Hay House family of authors that I started to put together what life means for me, “who I am and why I’m here”. This book covers a topic I’ve always had great interest in, the miracles we call children and their amazing connection to our Divine presence. My wish is that one day we all remember and take that remembrance throughout our whole life and not just as children. Happy reading!

    Our purpose as parents is to help grow healthy, imaginative kids. The authors message is that we need to encourage our children’s spiritual experiences and not get in their way. “Make this an idea that comes alive for them, rather than a subject that you push aside because it might interfere with some long-held notions of the absurdity of such an idea, or because it might conflict with some cultural or religious teaching that you may have unconsciously adopted as an unassailable truth.” I am not Our purpose as parents is to help grow healthy, imaginative kids.

Can children be telling us about their past lives? “Whenever a child shares their memories of being in the same family in a different role ... know that they are communicating from a mind that is uncontaminated by the ideas and teachings we adults have been indoctrinated with. They are simply speaking their truth.” How can we describe something that is beyond the realm of time and space from our limited experience living in the realm limited by time and space?

    Years ago, a segment of Art Linkletter's TV show entailed him interviewing a small panel of young children, and invariably, he received surprising, often laugh-out-loud responses to his questions. He even wrote a very funny book based on those interviews, titled "Kids Say the Darnedest Things." Well, this book is kinda like that... but different. Yes, kids DO say some amazing things, but rather than focus on the funny, this book concentrates on their more profound statements.

Yes, kids DO say some amazing things, but rather than focus on the funny, this book concentrates on their more profound statements. It's a compilation of worldwide anecdotes submitted to the authors describing what very young children have said about their pre-birth existence, their recollections of God and angels, and also includes some of their unfiltered "words of wisdom." Some may dismiss these accounts as New Age "woo-woo weirdness," and others may see it as evidence of our undisputed spiritual nature. Me? I think it provides some very interesting and fast-reading food for thought.

    I found this book to be really interesting and loved reading the stories that were submitted for the book. The first time I had heard something about this subject was when a neighbor talked about her daughter having an imaginary friend. I was fascinated by this. I now have Granddaughter's and can't wait to explore this with them. I see things in one of my Granddaughters that would suggest an Italian background?

The stories for the book weren't bogged down and were quick and to the point. If you are interested in this subject matter give this book a read and then pay attention if you are around young children. If it can happen to them I am believing it could happen to me and the rest of us.

    A subject near and dear to my heart I currently am the father of three beautiful children, and although I can't say they have had any experiences like those in this book, I do believe their beauty and innocence is truly divine.

Overall I really enjoyed this book.

    A beautiful compilation of human experiences with the spirits around us. The purity of children allows us to touch the power and energy around us. This book reminds the grown ups to listen very carefully when children talk to us and to respect them. I am looking forward to experiencing this for myself. The book also answered few of my own questions about the spiritual world. I am very grateful for this knowledge.

    One of the best I have ever read!! I will always keep this book with me!! My mom has always told me from day 1 that I chose her to be my mom and I fully believe that and I am very grateful that she has never tried to stifle or deny my spirituality and the things I have seen and has helped me to embrace those gifts. So I hold this book very dear to my heart.

    I know most of these were taken from the internet.. but they were so short... short paragraghs...and some just seemed like the same thing but changed the names of the children. They were amazing but I wish there were more to the story

    Pretty dang interesting! Who knew we "picked" our parents. Pretty unbelievable stuff, but it's been documented repeatedly so maybe there is truth to this information. Very fascinating!

    Go ahead and read it if you are into parents brainwashing their children and then asking targeted questions to see if the answers remotely match the brainwashing. Not my cup of hot chocolate.

    I think you already know how I feel about Dr. Wayne Dyer, so ordering this book was a no-brainer. Memories of Heaven is written by Dr. Wayne Dyer and Dee Garnes. It is a compilation of stories from moms, dads, aunts, nannies and more who have witnessed the divine in children. The stories are beautiful, magical, and oftentimes mind-blowing. These children have recalled being in heaven, past lives, choosing their families, reincarnation, precognition, angels, and more. Dee Garnes and her son Marcus I think you already know how I feel about Dr. Wayne Dyer, so ordering this book was a no-brainer. Memories of Heaven is written by Dr. Wayne Dyer and Dee Garnes. It is a compilation of stories from moms, dads, aunts, nannies and more who have witnessed the divine in children. The stories are beautiful, magical, and oftentimes mind-blowing. These children have recalled being in heaven, past lives, choosing their families, reincarnation, precognition, angels, and more. Dee Garnes and her son Marcus were mentioned many times on Dr. Wayne Dyer's Hayhouse Radio show. While serving as personal assistant to Dr. Dyer, the love he felt for her and her son was palpable. He often talked of meditating with Marcus, which always took me back to when my kids were toddlers and running all over the house, unable to sit still. What a gift to share meditation with a child. It is such a testament to this young child, his parents and the calming, overwhelming love of Wayne to have those moments together of peace and connection to God. Wayne talked quite frequently of his connection to Marcus, and it was beautiful. The book began as a conversation Dee had with Marcus. This is a stunning confirmation of how close to God children are. There is more to the story that Dee shares, but you should read it through the book. Here is a part of it: Marcus was only 18 months at the time. She asked "What is God like," to which he replied "Light." This beautiful and honest reply prompted Wayne to ask Dee to write it down, and he later posted it on his Facebook page for others to comment with their stories. Thus the book began. The chapters are filled with beautiful recollections from children, with each chapter sandwiched by Wayne's boundless wisdom and personal stories from his own divine experiences with his children. The stories are grouped in categories including memories of heaven, past lives, choosing parents, angels and more. Many of the stories are similar to each other, in the same way that adult near death experiences are. There are also stories that are so specific to the family they are in, including picking their parents for a specific reason, visitations from loved ones who have passed and meeting grandparents as well as other family members before they were born. I felt a moment of sadness when I read the the description of Wayne in the "About the Authors" section at the end of the book. It was all in the past tense. For me, I know he is still around. His physical body is really the only thing that left. This whole book is about our eternal beingness, so to me he is not past tense. He is fully present, even more so than ever. Memories of Heaven is a beautiful book. It can serve to gently open up discussion with young children to discuss what they might recall before they joined us on Earth, or what they still may be experiencing now. It is a gentle, inspiring read and I highly recommend it. Thank you Wayne, Dee, all of the wonderful contributors, and most of all the children. In Gratitude & Love, Kerri Mulhern
