As a preschooler I used to believe that if we went to heaven when we died, we lived in heaven before we were born. I went around telling my friends that I went around heaven saying good-bye to Mary, Joseph, and Jesus before I was born and telling them I would see them later when I died.

As a child aged 4, a younger sibling died. It was my impression that his body would be placed atop a palm tree where messengers from heaven would retrieve this returning "angel".

When I was about 6, I had this fascination with reincarnation (think I must have watched some programme on TV about it), and I was gonna write a list of all my friends names & put it in my pocket so if I died & was reincarnated, I could come & see them all.
