Reincarnation: Remembering Past Lives?


I want to start this post by saying I am not implying that the experiences I will reveal prove that past lives are a thing or that these were definitely my past lives, however, they were interesting experiences and I thought you guys might enjoy reading about them. I do not ascribe to any particular religion or ideology, although I do tend to favor new age spirituality concepts over religious dogma. Reincarnation makes sense to me in many ways, so I do consider it a possibility and enjoy reading about it.

I have had two very emotional, realistic dreams that made me wonder if they may be tied to my past lives. In both dreams, I think the strangest thing was that I was in an entirely different time and place, surrounded by people I do not recognize from this life, but I felt that I intimately knew these people and places, just like I do my own family and home now.

In the first dream, I was in a Celtic land, it felt medieval or earlier to me, although I don’t know the exact era. I was in a wealthy family, maybe even connected to royalty somehow. The dream wasn’t particularly exciting that I remember, just kind of mundane day to day life as a wealthy young lady, but what stood out to me was how emotionally connected I felt to the dream and how deeply I felt connected to people I do not recognize at all from this lifetime. I do have Celtic family roots and have always felt drawn to that culture, but perhaps there is even more to my love for that era than I thought…

In the second dream, I was a young man (really weird for me to dream that!) and I was fighting on a battlefield. I’m not a war historian by any means, but it felt like it was around WW1 from the uniforms and what I saw on the battlefield (I’m not sure what country I was from, but it felt like I was on the side of the allies). I ended up dying in the dream, which is always an interesting experience. I remember most the feeling of camaraderie and deep love I felt towards my “brothers” in uniform. I was almost glad to die if it meant maybe my friends could live. It was a sad and somewhat scary dream, but also full of love and friendship.

I also had one other experience that wasn’t a dream but was very curious. I was meditating, definitely not asleep, when I was suddenly in a foreign but very familiar place. I was in the desert, in what looked and felt to me like ancient Egypt. I saw a young girl climbing a large sand dune and instantly knew that I was that girl, and yet, I was watching events from a distance, outside of her body.

Suddenly, a gang of what I felt were robbers and criminals appeared. This group assaulted the girl and did horrible things to her (I’m sure you can imagine). The odd thing was that even though I felt that girl had been me, I wasn’t emotionally reactive to what I was seeing, at least not in the way you would expect. I didn’t feel fear, anger, trauma, or anything like that, I just felt deep sadness for all involved, both the poor, innocent girl and the deeply misguided men. I actually felt compassion towards these men who had abused me.

I want to say that this meditative experience was only the second time I have ever had something like that happen while meditating. The other time that I suddenly found myself somewhere else, it was simply a field of wildflowers I found myself transported to. I don’t know what the heck that was about lol, but it was a beautiful place.

I hope you enjoyed reading about these odd dreams and visions. If you enjoy this type of stuff, let me know. There are plenty of other odd “woo woo” type of experiences I can share if you are interested!

  1. Maranda: You should read my book “Explaining the Unexplained”. I know it’s lengthy for a comment, but please read the opening paragraph:

    “Who, among us, has not wondered what happens when we die? We know that some religions will promise us “Heaven” (or a similar place) but it’s a very rare person, religious or not, who has not wondered about the possibility of life-after death…about the stories of “near-death” experiences …about unexplained thoughts and memories we have all experienced to varying degrees.

    This book will look at questions such as these and, as much as is humanly possible, will offer unbiased, non-sectarian, answers, supported by overwhelming circumstantial evidence, that may not only surprise you, but may open the door to a reality we, generally, refuse to acknowledge.”

      1. I’m reading a book called Future Perfect. It’s about a young woman reporters experiences with psychics, shamans, and other metaphysical things. She’s a skeptic, but she finds herself having a few woo-woo moments (in fact, she uses that exact term). I just started the book so I don’t know if she becomes a believer or not, but I’m curious to see what her conclusions are.

  2. First, I’m with you on your no dogma religious beliefs. Second, I’m going on a Sacred Celtic Journey next Sept. 2019 (see link in my next comment). Lastly, you would enjoy reading Soul Explorer by hypnotherapist, Patricia McGivern.
    Keep writing about your dreams! This is fascinating! ❤️🦋🌀

      1. A few nights ago I dreamt that I was a cop and that I was in a chase of some sort and I had 2 others with me and I seemed like we got ambushed and we all got shot. The pain was horrible. I laid there bleeding the other 2 cops got shot too and one of them tried moving away and the guy shot him dead. So the other cop and I just stayed still. When we were left for dead I looked over at my dead “friend” and the pain was just horrible and I woke up in sweat. I’m either a cop or something but I feel so connected to those cops that I’ve never met before.

      1. Oh good I’m happy you do write some down. That is really interesting. Dreams are unique thing for everyone . I believe if your a deep feeling person dreams mean something. Then there is some that you have because of whatever happened during the day.
