Actually I think you just met your daughters playmate when she was holding her arms up to the trees in the woods as if she wanted to be picked up. What you described is most likely a little girl ghost that I would imagine is buried close by your house and I would also imagine that others are buried there as well and visit you also from what you have previously described happening in and around your house and they may have died tragically and not moved on.
And I definitely believe in reincarnation. Think of it this way, God has a trillion things for you to learn in this universe so how can anyone ever expect to learn all of that in just one lifetime? However, I don' think the spirit in your meditation was you, I think it was a real spirit manifestation that you allowed to come through because you were in a meditative state of mind.
Yes, I do remember making that comment to you. And ,wow, what an incredible place to live. Acknowledge them whenever you can and assure them that no one has forgotten their pain and strife and that it is OK for them to move on. You could have your own little bonfire ceremony to help set them free. And for you, what a story you could tell for them if you do find some more information about the area and what may have happened their?
