Just discovered this site and wanted to say hello. It's interesting reading other people's stories so I will share a bit of why I am here! When I was in my late 20s/early 30s - and I'm not probably going to explain this well - I had a profound dream that basically felt like experiencing or being inside another person's consciousness. In addition, it was a different time in history, I was a different gender and very specific things were happening. I mean, we can be different people in our dreams all the time, and all kinds of things can happen, but this was different. Besides being historically vivid, it was a state of mind I've never experienced in this life. I mentioned it to a friend at work, and without batting an eye, he explained that it was a past life dream. I was skeptical, but he was insistent, even to the point that he didn’t understand why I wasn’t believing him. A few years later, I happened to randomly put television on PBS while some history show was on, and was stunned because they just happened to be describing *exactly* what was happening in my dream! So I did start to wonder. Since then, I've had a few other detailed, historical dreams. None as profound as the first - probably because of the state of mind I experienced in that one - but very definitely detailed, and I was aware of when and where I was, and what was happening. To be honest, I still can't say I 100% believe in reincarnation, but I am open and fascinated enough to be here, and I do love learning in general. Thanks for letting me share!
