Kira Angelica’s hair stood on end after her little girl Dorothy revealed incredibly accurate details about her past life, reports thesun.co.uk.
A six-year-old girl stunned her mother by declaring that she was reincarnated from a past life when she was an opera singer.
Dorothy Angelica startled her mother when she revealed the exact details of life as her “previous self” Lily Pons, including her death from cancer in the 1970s.
Kira’s mom Angelica shared her little girl’s complaints with California doctor and reincarnation researcher Walter Semkiw, MD, as well as recounting a horrific vision when she was eight months pregnant with Dorothy.
Kira dreamed of a smiling young girl in a plaid dress and heard a voice calling, “Mom, Mom.”
After Dorothy was born as grew older, Kira says it was clear that the girl in the vision closely resembled her daughter.
But she also resembled another person – the woman whose name she first heard years later from the youngster’s mouth.
She learned to sing with perfect pitch and had “magnetic stage presence” in a musical production at the age of three-and-a-half.
Lily Pons was a New York Metropolitan Opera soprano star before pursuing a career in Hollywood and television.
By the time Dorothy was six years old, Kira told her about the vision, and her daughter decided to meditate in an attempt to figure out who this girl might have been in a past life.
“Dorothy began to tell the details of a possible life,” Dr. Semkiw said. “Kira grabbed a notebook and documented Dorothy’s words.”
“She thought her daughter was describing imaginary things, but suddenly she opened her eyes and said: “Mom, I know who I was in a past life. Her name was something like Lisey or Lily, but her real name was Alice Pons.”
After searching Google, Kira learned all about Lily Pons’ life as a New York Metropolitan Opera soprano star, as well as her career in Hollywood in the 1930s and transition to television in the 1950s.
Then, when she read that the French-born singer’s name was Alice Pons, Kira “nearly fainted” and was even more stunned when Dorothy gave more details about Lily, including her ability to speak multiple languages and play on the piano.
She also knew that Lily became a professional singer at the age of 22. She loved wild cats and birdsong.
Probably most frightening was that Dorothy developed stomach pains before one day announcing that Lily Pons had “died of severe stomach pain”.
She did indeed die of pancreatic cancer in 1976, and Dr. Semkiw wrote, “Reading this made Kira’s hair stand on end!”
She told her mother: “Ever since you started talking about dying and being reborn, I started having a terrible stomach ache, and I feel sad.
“I might throw up, Mom. It feels like I had a bad stomach in my past life. Very bad. It makes me sad.”
And during one episode, she declared, “Now I know what Lily Pons died from, Mom. She died from a bad stomach ache.”
Kira also showed Dorothy a photo of Pons, and she said: “Hey, that was me! Now you’ve seen me with short hair, Mom!”
Dr. Semkiv, who has studied thousands of potential cases of reincarnation, also believes that Kira’s vision was a “proclaiming dream” – a phenomenon first identified by pioneer reincarnation researcher Professor Ian Stevenson, who believed there was evidence that souls send dreams to families in which they are going to come true.
Dr Semkiw believes it has all the hallmarks of a true case of reincarnation.
He said Dorothy and Lily Pons are facially similar, which is often seen in the cases he studies.
He added: “The singing and acting talent of Alice Pons is being replicated in the persona of Dorothy Angelica.”
