As a second gen this happened to me, and talking to a few others second gens, they had similar experiences. I think I found a thread on the exscientologykids forums about this but don't have the link. I've been curious how common this was for other "born in" kids. In my case, I was talking with my dad after being treated especially harshly by Ethics for some teenage problem (that in retrospect was just a normal part of growing up). When I expressed frustration for how Ethics was handling me, he shut me down by saying I chose to be a Scientologist so I can't complain. When I was confused by what he meant, he said it was not this lifetime, but in a past life we made a pact as thetans to regroup as a family so we could go up the Bridge together. I was a bit dumbfounded -- how do I respond to something I supposedly did in a past life I cannot recall, especially when an OT is telling me about it with that special "certainty" that auditing gives them? He wouldn't say much more about it, but kept a stern attitude that I already made the decision and couldn't back out this lifetime because we had all agreed to keep each other going up the Bridge this lifetime no matter what. From talking to other people raised in Scientology, I got the impression that Scientology parents often had these "cognitions" where they figured out that their kids this lifetime were their "theta buddies" in past lives or between lives, and they were purposefully picking bodies in the same family so they could stay together. Did this ever happen to you?
