Past life recall – the boy who knew too much about Lou Gehrig
Book Review – The Boy Who Knew Too Much
Recently I read The Boy Who Knew Too Much: An Astounding True Story of a Young Boy’s Past-Life Memories, written by his mother, Cathy Byrd.
It’s a powerful story of modern parents raising a modern Western Christian child, who has a past life recall.
Not just any past life either, but that of Lou Gehrig, baseball’s Hall-Of-Famer.
Not being a big sports fan, I had really only heard of Lou Gehrig until the ice bucket challenge. This is a charitable way of raising money to help people with ALS. You may have seen it publicized on the internet a few years ago since ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
This book is also a fascinating way to learn about Lou Gehrig’s life. We learn about his life through the eyes of Christian Byrd, the young boy who knew too much.
How does past life recall happen and how did it happen through this little boy?
Christian’s mother Cathy Byrd is the author. She is a Christian mid-western mother with a busy life and a family to raise.
Christian is introduced in the book as a toddler with a total baseball fixation.
Nothing unusual about that, you may think, many young kids are that way.
Only with Christian, there are some essential differences that his mother noticed over time.
Often, before falling asleep, up until the age of 6 or so, Christian would start talking about his previous life. He would relay information and details about places and people relating to Lou Gehrig’s intimate life.
Over time, Cathy noticed that all of this information was validatable, sometimes over the internet, other times through extensive research.
In many cases, the information could not have been known by anyone but Lou Gehrig himself. Some close family members could also validate information, right down to some jewelry being buried under the Gehrig family home for safety!
There came a point when Cathy realized that Christian even played the same way as Lou Gehrig. He used a very well-documented unusual arm move even from a young age.
Christian’s mother traveled with him to various baseball events and documented their experiences in the book. During this time she helped Christian to meet coaches that enabled them both to connect the dots.
Then the boy who knew too much – realizes his mother knows a lot, too!
This was a big leap of faith for Cathy. Christian tells his mom that she was also his mom in another life – Lou Gehrig’s life!
In order to validate this, Cathy visits a past life regressionist who practices QHHT (Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique).
After finishing this book, I found out that Candace Craw-Goldman a friend of mine here in Kansas has interviewed Cathy Byrd as part of her work as a QHHT practitioner!
This book is entertaining and contains very thought-provoking information about past life recall. It also demonstrates the process that a child goes through during a past life awakening. As such, it’s an extremely helpful resource for parents. If your child is recalling memories of a past life this book would be a great guide to help you decide how to proceed.
Often, around the age of 6-7, memories like this start to fade for children as they begin to identify more strongly with their current life situation.
In fact, there came a point where Christian said ‘I’ve decided to be myself now‘.
What can you do if you have a child who knows too much? Past Life Recall
If you believe your child is experiencing past-life recall, document what the child says and if possible see if the details can be validated in some way.
As an Akashic Records Reader, when I read for a parent until a child is 18 (legal age) then questions of concern and support for the child can be asked by the parent through me.
If the parents are agreeable, then helpful and supportive information can be transmitted to the parent to assist with parenting issues, whether it relates to past-life recall or other issues or circumstances.
In the meantime, The Boy Who Knew Too Much: An Astounding True Story of a Young Boy’s Past-Life Memories by Cathy Byrd is an inspiring story. It’s a wonderful guide if you are raising a child who is experiencing past-life recall.
