We have all at least heard of reincarnation. This thread is designed to bring stories from those who have memories of a past life. If you have ever remembered who you were in a past life, or if you know someone who has, please share.

I have always been a believer in reincarnation, then after seeing a documentary about a little boy, I KNEW it was real. I've linked to the story below...

I look forward to your replies.


Interesting past life story of a little boy

I too am a believer in reincarnation, but....

I get stumped when I try to determine if someone's flashback memory is their own, or their ancestor's through DNA genetic memory. How do some people know if their past life memories are "theirs" and not their grandparents'?

I don't think there is any way of determining which is which.

"All is one, one is all"

The above resonates well with your post. So in that context I would say, whatever you perceive relative to you as the being the perciever* (for lack of better term), is none other than your own.

Well yes that is true in the wider zoom out perspective of course, but as we are experiencing the divided individual God consciousness, which are we experiencing during a past life memory, our individual memory or that of a relative long gone? In the 3rd dimensional perspective?

I'm as stuck on that as I am with the "who created the God consciousness, and all that before?" questions.

In my opinion it's impossible to tell them apart because basically there's no difference to be seen. Allow me to explain: You and your ancestors are all parts of one 'organism' that has components both within and without of our 4 dimensional cross-section of reality. Everything you, and anyone else in your family (currently incarnate or otherwise)has experienced and learned during an incarnation is essentially stored in a collective memory pool outside time and space that can be accessed by any other members of the family. The memories are all stored in one 'place' (your family's 'overmind') because that 'overmind' is what you all, collectively are.This is why I say there's no difference.

On topic, I don't remember anything explicit from a past life, but before I had learned to read, or around the time I was beginning to learn, I had recurring dreams about detailed phalanx fighting tactics and strategy. For this reason I suspect I may have been in a roman legion in a past life, but who knows, right?

Yes your right, DNA stores everything even memories and its obviously passed down through your you could be having a dream of your ancestors memories and not even know it.

We all are the God consciousness, we are a figment of the ultimate conglomerate of all there is.

I'm as stuck on that as I am with the "who created the God consciousness, and all that before?" questions.

It is what is.

I'm a believer in reincarnation myself but I had never thought of genetic memory that has been passed down, thanks for the new perspective.... On the same note though all the stories and a tiny piece of a life I thought I had would have no affiliation with any of my ancestors in several generations........

I read your linked story and find it rather fascinating. However, I wonder if his father had not followed through with his investigation or the mother had not focused on reincanation, whether a lack of obvious reinforcement and interest would have made the boy forget? As it is, I have to speculate here that the reason the boy could have taken the memory as his own and carried it forward is that the pilot could not accept his own death. Otherwise why reincarnate as a young boy? Maybe this family has to learn about obsession and compulsion and try to overcome that?

I am really torn about reincarnation. If I had a previous life or lives, I don't remember it, so what would I be returning for? What is it about the first life or maybe several lives that I didn't catch? At the age of 21, I asked my father about the piece of furniture I liked that had burned in a house fire when I was five. It was a fancy hexagonal stand, about a foot in diameter, with shiny burgundy wood or ceramic inlaid sides. The top was either a fancy ashtray or a bowl for fruit or something. The side panels housed secret compartments that I would sneak in and play with even though one of them hid a gun. My father said that there had never been such a piece of furniture at all, nor had he ever owned a gun. So did I merely conjure it up with my imagination, maybe stimulated by some book I read, or was it something from a past life, or maybe from an ancestral memory from ancestors in Bohemia?

How can reincanation be true if the world's population is always increasing? The numbers don't add up.

S&F for an interesting thread!

My tupence worth!

I'm 100% sure of "reincarnation" ....the term used is irelevant to the fact

I remember a period of pre-birth and actually being born, which I am told i'm not ment to have......but I do!....
and there is no point in my present life that I can not access.

I am also aware of undeniable evidence to support "reincarnation" via a friends experience from age 5 to age is a brief description of what I know :

My friend at the age of 5 started to suffer head aches, over the next few years the head aches got more severe so his parents took him to his GP, the GP had a problem with diagnosis so he was referred to a psychologist...who after assesment decided my friends case was intriguing enough to put him under hypnosis

This is were it gets very interesting, I read the report from the psychologist......

under hypnosis this little 8 year old boy told his story of being a Farmer in Malton, Yorkshire....he told of the exact address of the farm, he gave descriptions of inside the farm house and of the farm itself......He spoke of his day to day life on this farm and in the town of Malton, he told of his family here and how it came about him being shot, accidentally, by his own farm hands while chassing poachers off his land.

Now after this hypnosis session the little boy's familiy decided it was too intriguing not to follow up his descriptions as Malton is maybe 30 or 40 miles away from home

When they reached Malton my friend started to point out places and names of people who lived in certain cottages and what shop was what when he remembed being there.....bearing in mind this boy is 8
His familiy where staggered by the accuracy, anyway, after some enquires they confirmed all his memories where accurate....And I mean all!

He was caught in the left temple by a stray ball of shot, which stayed logged there until his death 8 years later aged 83...........This happened in the early part of the 1900's

Oh yer!....the crazy thing about this case is that my friend never suffered with head aches after this hypnosis session!....he is now 40 and one of the most spiritual people I ever met!

I will share my perspective for what it's worth. I don't get on ATS much because I am a nursing student and coming here is a luxury, so I am not very well known. I am a certified hypnotherapist, trained in past life regressions by Dr. Weiss and also another teacher going all the way back to 1991. I use a combination of windows to the sky accupressure and hypnosis for induction. I've been doing regressions on clients and for myself for two decades.

The difference between the memory being your own past life memory or that of an ancestor......the best way to describe this is you will feel it deep in your heart if it is your own memory.It's personal and will resonate with you. When a past life memory surfaces, it is important for us to look at what is being revealed. They usually are karmic ties that we are being guided to look at because they are completely relevant for the current lifetime we are in, and these ties are usually our stumbling blocks in this life. When we look at those ties, it triggers us vibrationally and you will feel this vibration deep within because it is our own.We carry this energy from lifetime to lifetime because it is astral in nature. We don't have our ancestors vibrations runs so deep. Quite honestly, I have never had anyone plug into their ancestors's memories, or experienced that for myself in a session, because of the INTENTION that the past life work being done is for our own healing and we are requiring our own memories for this to be cleared out of our life. Trust me when I say that we all have way too much to look at, and looking at our ancestors karmic memories would be a luxury! I respect that ancestral cellular memory is there, and if your intention is to get in touch with your ancestors and what they can show you and teach you, that will come to you, they will show it to you if you ask. I had a friend that had worked with this for a while and she was interested in learning spiritual teachings from the native american perspective, her heritage, but she was a practicing buddhist.

Also to add, and I hope this doesn't lead to confusion. We are usually guided to work within specific families or groups that help trigger our karma so we can release it, like alcoholism for example. As we hopefully are able to clear the addiction, we also clear the emotional DNA that is encoded within that addiction, and when that is cleared, it is also released from our ancestral/genetic DNA within our bodies. It will help future offspring to not have to deal with the alcoholic tendencies encoded in their DNA.

This is really a brief summery, but I did want to try to answer the question because I contemplated these same questions over 20 years ago. This is what I know and have experienced both personally and professionally. I'm interested in a response to the past life therapist that was mentioned as well.

WOW! Interesting information! Thanks so much for sharing this. So I think it's safe to say that we are infinite beings. Would you agree? I mean, our "body" might die, but our soul continues for eternity? Would you agree?

My boyfriend gets ideas of how he died in past lives. For example, he can't stand the smell of burned engine oil. Whenever he smells it, the hairs on his arm and neck stand up, and he gets shudders. So he has the sneaking suspicion that in a past life he died in an auto-accident. This makes a lot of sense, but of course it can't be proven that this stems from past-life trauma, or present-life trauma that is lurking somewhere in his unconscious mind.

Also, I've met someone who told me he remembers his past lives and he went on to tell me how he was an Amazonian princess and other such important people. My first thought was that he was delusional, and I admit I was a little unfair and unreceptive to his story. However, I find it hard to believe when a person tells me about their past lives and it just so happens that all of the lives were very important, affluent people. I suppose instead of telling him I didn't believe him, because that only made him extremely mad and spout how ignorant I was, I should have just nodded my head to his story and kept my skepticism inside.

Finally, I've been to a few psychics who have told me about my past lives. What's remarkable is that those stories have so much importance to who I am today. For example, one psychic told me that I was hanged in a past life for believing in a religion that wasn't Christianity. This connects to my current life because I used to have a big problem saying what I believe in and standing up for myself. I would avoid conflict whenever I could even if that meant repressing my thoughts and emotions. Big mistake! And I'm overcoming that slowly but surely.

Another psychic told me that in a past life, I was abandoned by a mother who loved me emotionally but couldn't take care of me physically. So I grew up in an orphanage that could take care of me physically, but couldn't take care of me emotionally. And in the orphanage I was taught that I would be loved if I were good. And if I weren't good I was basically trash. So connecting this to my current life, I've had this idea of conditional love. If I'm not a good person, I don't deserved to be loved. And if I'm not loved then that means I'm not a good person. I now know that this is a TERRIBLE way to think, and thanks to the psychic I learned that and was able to grow from there.

So if you ever have the opportunity to see a real psychic, I strongly recommend it. It's helped me wonderfully in getting to know myself and how to work on my issues. But when I say real psychic I mean a real one who knows what they're doing and is giving the reading to truly help you. Not Madama Yung who looks into a crystal ball and will only give you information if you pay more money.

Yes of course! My favorite books by Dr. Michael Newton (Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls) and Dr. Bryan Weiss delve deeply into this subject if you are interested in looking further into this.They also have websites you might want check out Also, books by Chris Griscom of the Light Institute are great, if they are still in print.

If you believe in re-incarnation, most of us are from the Atlantean/Lemurian time. That's when the Adams and Eves were created to house the souls...there are many theories, but apparently..."It was the best of times" and "it was the worst of times".

I was a poor Goat herder in Atlantis in a previous life.

No, in all seriousness I believe it's possible. Here is a question for some. I read a controversial book once on the subject about two individuals who were supposedly killed during WWII in a concentration camp as Jews. Now they were supposedly reincarnated into Christian families.

So how does that work?

I have dreams of my past life too.
I even met a woman, who was from my home planet, i recognized from those short dreams i used to have about a few years ago, of a past life, funny too, i met her at a "Plan you future" event, she had the eyes, face, facial characteristics, and that great personality, i was so acusomted to.

Here this video might help you understand it a little better.
We basically never die, but when we do die, reptilians re-program our minds/souls, so when we are re-incarnated we dont remember anything from our previous life.
Looks like even in the bible a well known book that was ghost written by reptilians, previously mentioned about re-incarnation, but was removed, due to TPTB of that time, feared people with not fear death anymore.

I am not the expert on this...but I do believe most of the souls come from the Atlantean times. Prior to that we were just Cro-Magnum...but that is another thread...

To answer your question...if my theory is correct the WWII life would have been many many many lives into your Karmic cycle.

Bad things happen...there are other influences...if we didn't have the other influences we would have evolved years and years ago...but we have been hampered and put down like a thumb squashing a bug...not pretty. If that thumb would not have been there...we would be thousands of years ahead by now....
