I enjoy reading about what others have remembered of their past lives so I figured I'd add my fragmented visual memories to the mix. If anything here is familiar to anyone else I'd love to hear about it! I'll begin with my most detailed memory from early 2016: The Conquistador I'd used a random YouTube regression video that talks you through the usual relaxation stuff then directs you to open a door. I'd tried this a few times over the previous months and only got sensations and a hypnagogic hallucination. But this time as the narrator asked a lot of rapid fire questions like where you are, what land, and what date I got 1518. I wondered if I'd just strung random numbers together and I kind of dismissed it. When the video asked to look down at my feet I couldn't see anything but I felt as if I was wearing heeled boots as my feet weren't flat on the ground. As I scanned up my body I knew I was wearing armor but couldn't see it or feel the weight of it. I tried to focus on what the armor felt like on my body instead but as soon as I did I became aware of a large white horse standing next to me on my right. It had a curly/crimped looking mane. I immediately thought "Gee, if this is my horse I'm not taking very good care of it. It's mane needs to be combed!" I couldn't see much of the horse except it's long mane. It had such striking hair! It looked like stretched out spiral curls...each curl was separated and pretty but overall frizzy. I saw this all very clearly but I wasn't specifically focused on the horse it was just in my peripheral vision. I felt the presence of someone on my left but I didn't look at them. Then all of a sudden I'm on the horse but don't actually see myself mount it. It was a bright sunny day and the sky was bright blue and cloudless. I was in a large field or clearing and the grass which was a deep intense shade of green was short as if it had been mowed. In front of me in the distance was a forest. A few months later I saw the horse again as I was just closing my eyes to go to sleep. This time it was "prancing" along in front of a line of trees or a forest. Here's a video of the same type of horse making the same movement These horses would've been common war horses in Spain and any Spanish colonies at the time. What's crazy to me is I took weekly horseback riding lessons one summer when I was about 12. It's odd to me this memory didn't come back to me then since I didn't have any contact with horses before then. This has been the only memory I've been able to verify so far. It matches up with Bernal Diaz del Castillo's firsthand account of Hernan Cortes' expedition to Mexico in which he mentions only a few horses were brought along but one of them was a white horse described as "a very good horse" and that all of the horses had been walked separately from the soldiers across a certain plain in Cuba in early 1518 to the docks where the ships were waiting. (Officially the expedition was cancelled but Cortes left anyway and landed in Mexico in 1519 so a lot of the more summarized sources give the expedition date as 1519.) This account also explained why my armor wasn't heavy. They didn't use metal armor but instead used quilted armor made from fabric and stuffed with padding. I've looked at photos of plains in Cuba and the grass only grows a few inches high due to the amount rocks which has the effect of making it look like it's been mowed. A YouTube video of someone driving along a coastal road in Havana brought on a sudden feeling of excitement like just before the drop on a roller coaster, when the sea and the rocky coastline came into view. I also have a fondness for images of old ships. Galleons and frigates specifically. I should mention that I grew up on an island in an area where piracy was common but my fondness for ships only became a thing in my adulthood. I had a chance to tour one of the reproduction Columbus ships a few years ago and found I enjoyed staring up at the rigging...if I was allowed to I would've laid down on the deck and just stared at the ropes and sails in the breeze. I feel like I've written sooo much already. I'll write about the other memories in a separate post.
