Do you think there is a before-life just as there is an afterlife?

I was just thinking about this today cause someone was asking about when they can get pregnant. I was going to say when the baby is ready to come into the world. It got me wondering if there might be spirits waiting to come into the human world just as there are who leave the human world. I know it sounds kinda looney and I'm probably going to get a lot of criticsm for this but do you ever wonder about that?

  • Sorry, I posted my reply before I was done.... A few weeks ago, my 22 month old daughter, who was 20 months at the time found a pic of my grandfather who passed away in 1996. She found it in a box I had not yet unpacked. I heard her say "Hi" so I went to see what she was doing. She held the pic out to me and said, "This mummy's ampa." She'd never seen a pic of him before and I haven't spoken of him to her because I am not sure how to explain that he died long before she was born.
    I honestly believe she met him in Heaven before her birth. But then, I believed that before the day she found the pic.

  • yes, i believe we hang out in the astral world, or "heaven" whatever anyone wants to call it, before we're born & after we die.

  • No, that's not something I personally believe

  • Neither, I guess. I mean "Before" you are bor and before being conceived you are merely a single cell in you mother's ovaries containing half the genetic material. Your other 'half" is in your dad, in one of his little spermies. Then it's the whole biological reproduction thing, and then you have to take into account that what you mean by "spirit" is not necesarily the same as what others considert o be a "spirit.

  • Since you are half your mom and half your dad, perhaps you inherit their memories while being formed in the womb.
