I recently tried out one of those guided past life regression videos (because I had nothing better to do).
Had a funny story come about - I was a priest of some sort, in Egypt. Lived my whole life in a temple I knew every corner of while I was having this vision. We worked on the dead - embalming, wrapping...it was funny because I seemed to remember strange ways we pulled out body parts.
The real weird part is that I was a man, and I was gay. Not overtly, but secretly. I was sleeping with the head priest when young. It seemed I related to him as a sort of father figure, but actually ended up killing him later, in order to take his position! There was a mix of admiration and resentment present. I was a rather sour personality as an elder, became powerful, but there was an ever present paranoia and suspicion of others doing to me what I had done to my predecessor. -Which wasn't without reason because someone did, eventually.
Pretty detailed "memories". Perhaps I once read a story like that, which I don't consciously remember?
I've always thought I wouldn't mind a job in which I had to work with cadavers, I feel a certain sacredness about that.
Whether that current interest helped form the imaginary story, or if it is a past life which influenced that feeling, I have no idea, and don't care to establish an opinion either way.
But while I was in this state, I found myself reflecting on why this would be relevant to my life now, what sorts of things might I be trying to do differently? I felt it was extreme ambition which I lost control of back then, and I wanted another try at reining that in, in order to have a more pleasurable, love filled life. Hence my "fear of success" as my mom like to call it? LOL!
Whether these things are true past lives or not is less important than the way they can influence us now, even if they might be imaginary, or just "tuning in" to memories of humans that were not exactly our self, but more like accessing records in a library. There might be a reason our subconscious checks out those particular records or creates that story.
