Hi All,

This is something that I typically would have dismissed as false and fake years ago. However after my NDE I've come to see that all things are possible to a degree, and that the existence we have here on earth is extremely limited in comparison to what can be done, felt, experienced, and achieved on "the other side."

After my NDE, I occasionally have "flash-back" like memories to what I would consider better times.

For example, I was walking in the woods with my wife recently when I was suddenly struck with a memory-like internal imagery of having lived as a nomad traveling the woods in a more open and loving society perhaps thousands of years ago. It was really weird because it felt like a memory and not at all like daydreaming.

Does anyone else get these strange moments? Perhaps it's just a trick of the mind confusing it as a memory when it was actually a daydream?
Yes I have had such an experience, but mine was very sad. During a meditation I was flooded by images and feelings. I was standing in the middle of a small village of primitive huts, maybe it was in Africa. They were all burnt to the ground and everyone was dead, my whole family, my whole tribe, the animals ... I was crying, devastated. I don't know why and how I had escaped the carnage.

It was not a daydream, as there was no active input from myself. These images and feelings just flooded me (it's the best word I can come up with), and overwhelmed me.

I had a few other such moments but not in as much detail, more vague. Like, I believe I once was stoned to death because I spoke the truth, which was not appreciated. This would tie in with what an astrologer once told me - that I used to be a revolutionist and have come into this life to learn a more soft and moderate approach.

It might be that because of such painful experiences in my previous lives I'm now very careful and mistrusting, and tend to be a recluse. I speak openly only to people who I feel can accept it and then too, I try to be gentle rather than blunt, so my words don't hurt.

Your flashback is beautiful :) Have you explored it any further?
No I have not explored it further, but I wish too. However I don't think I'll exactly be able to do so on my own watch, I guess I'll just have to wait and see what else might come of it.

It was indeed very nice. It coincided with a feeling of peace I was already experience on the walk, which was lovely. :)
I have seen a number of 'past lives'.

If you want to go directly for them look up 'past life' guided meditations on Utube or go to a regression/hypnotist person.

Basically, the 'meditations' do the same as the regression. They get you relaxed and breathing deeply then take you on a journey. Then all of a sudden they say we go around this corner ----- and we see a past life. They totally take the conscious mind by surprise and force the 'subconscious' to reveal a 'past life'. The meditations then ask you how are you dressed? (I was an American Indian and another a boy in the mountains in Europe). Who do you recognize from those you know now? (since we reincarnate in 'soul groups' I recognized my current wife as my mother and my wife was a granddaughter). They may ask other questions.

Totally, fascinating area. Once I experience something new a few times I then go to the net to see if others have similar experiences and then to books, etc.

I have suggested the 'meditations' on atheist boards and those 'attempting' them normally report success. However, it is not 'proof' but may be good evidence or bad based on how you feel about it. That is why I still 'believe' in what I experience but can't go to 'know' as that would be something 'scientifically verifiable'.

There may in fact be 'issues' in your 'past lives' that affect you. A trained hypnotherapist will sometimes regress the person with a 'current problem' and find out it was in a 'past life' in order to deal with correcting it.
I remember this from when I was younger.

I used to get all sentimental about the sea. Once I remember staring off into the horizon when an image hit me of a sailor in the water watching a ship sink. I remember I loved that ship with all my heart and I wasn't concerned for my own safety, but the pain of seeing her go under was indescribable.

For decades I couln't stand stories or movies about shipwrecks. I'd tear up whenever I saw a ship sink on TV. I always loved the sea and any kind of water though. The funny thing is I get awfully seasick whenever I am at sea. Its almost as if the seasickness was a deliberate block to prevent me from living this life as a sailor...
For now I'm happy to blast around on my beach catamaran, but the call of the ocean is still something I feel strongly. I don't think that will ever completely go away. Maybe it ties in somehow with my life lessons which allseem to be centered around facing and resolving my problems in stead of running from them...

Past life regression is something that is really interesting me at the moment (among other things)

As a child I had an irrational fear of anything 'Mexican'
As a teenager I would have a recurring dream of running toward a large tree in desert town like conditions, I know I had stolen something from a shop (food or survival something) I was in a body that was taller than me, but it was me.. A man with large mustache pulled a huge old fashioned gun at me & shot me in the back. I 'know' exactly how it feels to be shot through this dream.I fell against the tree & woke up.
In my early 20's I told my friend about this dream.. she believed it was a past life dream

I kinda scoffed at the idea at the time & I never had the dream again after telling it..

Now I'm older & wiser... I wonder..

I've always had this fear of being accused of stealing (I'd be the one holding up my purchase very clearly for all to see till its paid for :roll: )
I have had on/off back pain for years.. no marks though..
& I still get chills at anything mexican

I dont know if there is anything solid enough there (or if its just me being daft)
But I have thought of regression lately..

Dreamer- you said about self medications on you tube.. I looked at them..


I dont know if I'm brave enough to do that on my own. What if something horrible comes up?
I have found a hypnotherapist.. but what if nothing happens? I am trying to research her but not finding anything in the way of reviews.. I am quite rural so must travel for this.. means taking time off work & expense.. what credentials should i look for..?
she says on her website she is a shaman.. something i know little about but researching that also..

maybe I am looking to talk myself out of it...or just weary of wasting time & money.. but my curiosity is pushing me

Anyone have any input on this??


There is nothing to fear except 'fear' itself!

I would first try the net meditation ----- the one I did was the 31 minute one if you noticed it as it is still there. A number of people have tried that one and 'no one' has reported back to me that it was a 'horrible or scary' experience. However, the chance of getting the 'Mexican' life may be an issue but possible because it sounds like it could be a recent one because of the gun.

When I did the meditation (just relax and listen to the person), I believe I was provided 3 past lives which were within the last 150-200 years based on what furniture, clothing, and scenery I noticed. I was never shown any 'bad' incidents in my past lives or how I died, etc. This specific meditation is partially designed to show how you and other members of you 'soul group' change roles in each 'incarnation' in order to get 'various experiences'. Therefore, you will be asked 'who do you recognize' in each past life. Interestingly, even though I was a 'Native American' in one past life, the people in the meditation I knew appeared as they do now versus what they would/should have looked like really back then as 'Natives' for example. I believe this was because of the way this meditation was designed. .

I did have a 'consult' with a hypnotherapist (a good friend now) to have my son find out about this subject. They charge upwards of $150 an hour and suggest 3-6 hours and 'should' guarantee you are hypnotized but beyond that probably nothing especially not the 'Mexican' life. The meditation works fine for me.

Good luck with whatever you decide! I think this kind of 'spiritual knowledge' is very worth the time or money you may spend if you can see a 'past life'. However, my hypnotherapist stated they cannot 'guarantee' it is a past life that you are seeing!

As far as credentials, I would make sure the therapist has done 'past life regressions' in the past. It would be nice to get one specifically trained and certified to do 'past life' regressions. Also, if you go the therapist route I would consider an 'in between life regression' when you are regressed based on cost as this knowledge would be very worth while also.

If a past life is causing you 'current' problems then the therapist route is probably a must as this is how they correct some problems by going back to when the problem occurred and working you through it right then.
