    The Past Life Forum is a private forum open to the public. It is a rich and valuable resource for anyone interested in any aspect of past lives and reincarnation. You can delve into discussions on any topic related to:

    • reincarnation and past lives
    • children's past lives
    • same-family reincarnation
    • the scientific basis for reincarnation
    • past life regression
    • past life dreams
    • personal reincarnational memories
    • animal to animal reincarnation

    The original intent of this board is to be an open and non-commercial place to discuss and share children's past lives and reincarnation. Steve and Carol have requested that we all, moderators and members, work to keep the board focused and messages on topic. Because of all the extra traffic, it is now necessary to become more vigorous in enforcing the policy to preserve the original intent of the board.

    In accordance with the Bowman's wishes, we do not permit signature links, posts or threads containing the following:
    • psychic impressions of other people's past lives
    • channeling spirits
    • advertising or promotion of any kind for any products or services
    • preaching -{i.e. Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, or spirit teachings presented as prophecy**
    • occult, unconventional or conventional religious topics (unless the topic somehow connects to a past life/reincarnation issue),
    • current politics (see * below)
    • human to animal reincarnation
    • alien and other world past or future lives, or abductions
    • dreams that are clearly not past life related
    • references to drugs and/or alcohol in relation to spiritual experiences
    • spirit possession
    • walk-ins or soul exchange

    The purpose of this forum is for research and discovery. It is intended to appeal to all ages. References to homicide, suicide, cruelty, sexuality, and perversion are highly censored by forum staff. Inference to any of the above is subject to moderation without explanation. Posts regarding such should be carefully written and edited with caution.

    Confrontational, hostile, malicious, inciting, and uncivil posts are forbidden and will be pulled immediately.

    *Politics and any debate promoting positions, parties, and causes are off-limits. Disparaging comments on governments, politicians, world leaders, and other policies within a political structure are forbidden. This is a forum dedicated to reincarnation and not a platform for political debate.

    There is no limit to the number of posts per day. Just remember this is a discussion forum, not a personal blog or journal. Lengthy posts and large or high numbers of photographs are discouraged at the discretion of Administrators. There is a 20 page limit.

    Dual memberships are not permitted. In the instance of such an occurrence, the member will be contacted by an Administrator. Failure to respond will result in accounts being merged, or the inactive account will be deleted entirely.

    ***For privacy and security purposes we do not allow members to post their full name or e-mail address on the open forum.

    Please credit the author when you use a quote.

    Continual disregard for the rules will result in membership status being changed to probationary. If you have not read the Mission Statement of the forum, please take the time to do so.

    Forum Staff reserves the right to remove any posts containing inappropriate content – without warning or explanation to the poster. This is NOT censorship this is simply the application of forum guidelines by the forum administrators.


    Thank you,

    Forum Staff

    Side note - Please note the signature length rule has been in place since 2001 -

    Signature lengths are limited to three lines. Thank you! :)

    If a moderator sees that your signature is more than three lines - it will be edited without notification. Please don't take up posting space with long signature lines. THREE lines single spaced is the rule. ;)

    THANK YOU.

    Ancient civilizations


    Discussions on ancient civilizations that are currently defined as mythical, i.e. Atlantis or Camelot, are permitted - within reason. Historical documentation of these places is insufficient at the present time; however, we do recognize that certain cultures were lost to history. When discussing the possibility of a past life in one of these civilizations, please do not post experiences that contain the following:

    • Flying crafts/UFO's
    • Magic spells and potions
    • Other worlds and/or planets
    • Beings of supreme power/strength/intelligence etc.
    • Anything that could be considered science fiction fantasy

    Welcome Calla,

    What that means is we don't want people becoming members claiming to be psychic and giving readings to other members.


    The forum is 20 years old for a reason. :) We don't allow advertising, or phishing for cases either. Keeps the forum clean and members safe. We are so glad you have joined us.
