er hum ! It sounds like you have made the same assumption about me that many others have made before you.
Actually I don't think I did. I liked that you questioned the test. Even as a regression therapist. Something I have never tried. At least I assumed the clinical comment was sarcastic, as was my ">>> But the comment you made about ... "people with bad memories have more room to create fantasy"
" I was guessing that was the original theory behind the test... bad memories must be to blame...let's test it kind of sarcasm. Surprised you missed that.
I didn't assume you were pagan. I also have never put dizzy new-age with faeries and gardens in my mind.... Both I am fond of. I am also classified as "alternative" and yet not pagan. I get it from others due to my love of Astrology.

Even so, I personally believe there is no substitute for solid firsthand experience and research (to authenticate the firsthand experience) ... as opposed to drawing the 'psychology grad here', card as if it were a weapon.
Not a weapon, a background, that says I've read a lot of studies and I felt the test was crap.
I was actually irritated that Psychology attempts to explain the metaphysical with famous names...

>>> And your comment to me directly ... "clinical and logical it is not ... (Yoda voice)"

As a Star Wars fan you're obviously not totally adverse to a bit of fantasy yourself methinks.
which would seem to emphasize that the individual perseption of 'clinical' and 'logical' are relative surely ?
I assumed you were being sarcastic, and I was agreeing with you, you didn't assume I was being sarcastic about the bad memory. hmmm

But even more interesting (to me as a Pastlife Regression Therapist), is the content of your last post ... very interesting and very telling.
is it? Does it tell you why I thought the test was crap?

Thanks for all the great criticism of this article. I find that too many articles are trying to act like they are in fact debunking, or proving why people would think something so fantastical, and others don't. In the end, the ones who do MUST be crazy or on drugs.

I posted this here as more of an awareness to this ridiculous article, and I do not support these wanna be, pseudo-scientific research.

I have always thought of these things ever since I was small. Most of the time I had delusions of self greatness, feeling that I possessed a knowledge that others didnt.

well I dont exactly have that anymore, and find it more and more difficult to recall WHY I felt that way. I always felt i could see farther, and sense more. I still feel/know when I'm about to pass a cop while speeding, or cringe before i hurt myself. I just dont know why anymore, or how to control it.

I thank all of you for your experiences, and really believe what you say. There are more crazy things out there than believing that I assure you.

As I read over your words, I started to recall some of the past emotions on the subject I have had, but I still feel blank spots in my memory.

Maybe the article should have been trying to prove the reverse: "You were Reincarnated, Why don't you remember?"

I used to think that I was reincarnated, but as my understanding of life grew, I realized that I never really died.

I have bad memories that usually revolve around me destroying the world. I've never ridden a horse, but I remember thundering across the steppe as a part of a vast multitude of armored Cavalry burning down village after village. Not taking any loot, but only ending wicked lives.

I am pretty sure that the scientists that come up with their "Theories" are only trying to hide the reality of what and who they are as "reincarnated" entities. Many of them are probably reincarnated Priests that lead the ignorant to Hell. Then with Religion, now with Science. Sorcery is Sorcery.

I never really believed in past lives or any afterlife either. However, one of my first memories was me asking my mom how to spell our last name (it's a rather long name and very uncommon). I was able to write it out and memorize it like it was nothing. I also remember being able to read before I ever went to school or was taught how to read.

Instances like those make me at least question the possibility of past lives and reincarnation. Who knows, maybe I retained my ability to read from a past life after all.
