1. If one is intrigued by a particular time in history, is this an indication that we might have a past life tied to this time period. For example, I feel drawn to the late 30's and early 40's (WWII) era and have often wondered if I didn't live in this time period.
2. One of my other thoughts is on futurelife. Many, many times I've felt that I've been born too soon. In my mind, I have these grandiose visions of what the future looks like and wonder if a future life somehow has the ability to peer into my life now. Weird, huh.

My questions are these:
Do people's personalities remain intact from one life to the next?
Or do their personalities change?
Now that I think about it, does their intelligence remain the same, too?
What kind of spiritual and/or mental growth do they experience, if any?

As I do not have the inclination to read every post, I apologize if the issue I raise has already been covered.
My question, and my concern, regards the reawakening of attachments and associations which may occur as a result of pastlife recollections. Are there any safeguards against this, and what advice can you offer to those who are caught in the powerful pull of such revived connections?
To illustrate with just one such example from my own pastlife recalls, there is one person with whose soul I have had very close and intimate bonds in almost every lifetime I remember, going back as far as the beginning of time on this plane and even beyond. Our connection has served a very definite purpose, and I can see that my own life this time around has been a preparation to bring this purpose to fruition. However, the other person, though initially fascinated, has made the choice to exit from the connection in this life, partly, I think, because my own awareness scared the heck out of them, but also because their own attachments and tendencies in this life led them in a different direction.
The point I am trying to make is that knowing the extent to which our souls' journeys are interwoven has posed a real challenge to my ability to see the relationship at the here-and-now realistic level, how it is actually playing out. It has been a trial to put aside my own knowledge and approach the connection from a pragmatic and down to earth viewpoint, dealing with what is, rather than all that is.
In this, and several other key associations, the pastlife awareness has been a great burden to carry, even while it has answered many burning questions. I wonder if this is a common problem encountered by others?

I know its odd but I know exactly who I was in my last life. My name was Elenore R. Smith and I was born in Handly W. Virginia. My mother hit me in the head with her shoe when I was 13 and I died the next morning of a brain anurisim.
In this life my mother admitted hateing my guts from birth and she gave me away permanently when I was 13. (coincidence?)
I believe who choose our lives with guidence from the council befor we are born. My question to you would be how do I know the lesson I keep returning to learn?

Hey there milkyway12,
Yours is very short so I'll just give an equally quick answer to that question;
Maybe you were ... maybe you weren't ... only you have the answer ... but something tells me you already guessed what my reply would be ... so at least your psychic abilities are improving

Hey there guys ... so sorry I thought this thread had died ... but I see it's had a new burst of life (oh the irony)
As you may have guessed (my being a Pastlife Regression Therapist and all) I have been regressing all day ... so I know you'll understand when I say that I need a bit of a break from it this evening.
However, tomorrows the weekend and I have no clients so I promise I will come back and reply to all of the posters who have been waiting ... and I will definately add a very basic method for those of you who would like to recall their own past lives (or at least give it a try) ... because some of you have been extremely patient in your wait for that ... and your patience will be rewarded.
For the now I'm just going to browse the boards for a while and I'll return here on the morrow

I have to admit I have doubts about the whole past lives issue. Not an adamant disbeliever, but not convinced either. But I do have a question related to the issue.
What do you say to someone who claims to remember past lives, but they always seem to be based on movies, even to the point of using names of the major characters? For example, I was once told that I was, in a former life, the Cincinnati Kid, who, oddly enough, was described as looking like Bogart in the Big Sleep. This same person also claims to have lived lives that uncannily resemble the storylines of Gone With the Wind and Gaslight.
I personally think this person just has attention issues, but I'd like to hear you thoughts on the matter.

I have just a quick question, concerning something I apparently said to my mum when I was four years old.
Later in life my mum told me what had happened and what I said to her.
In short, she said I told her that I was actually her mother in my previous life. Apparently this happened when we were walking along some street and she tugged at my hand.
She said that my whole voice sort of got ''adult like'' and I stated that she shouldn't tug my hand like that. I said I never treated her like that when I was her mum.
She asked when I was her mum, and I said before I was even born, or something along those lines. (can't quite remember now exactly how she told me)
She got scared by the unusual change in me and my tone, along with what I was saying to her, but proceeded to question me.
She asked me was I also my dad's mum. I said ''No silly!!! My dad had white hair, and a long white beard''.
This is where she officially got too freaked out, and left it there. But it lingered with her long enough to tell me this when I grew up.
So! Has you ever heard of this, where a daughter/son can actually have been their parents parent in a previous life?
