Okay so this is a long yet necessary explaination. I'll start out with a little bit of a back story. To begin, i am only 19 however i have always felt a strong connection to the civil war, even before i knew that i had relatives in it. I have also always had the strong urge to become a doctor, with no regard for money it will cost or make me. I am also an empath. This being said I collect antiques as I can often feel the energy they carry, and I often will see something and go "I NEED that at any cost." One of these items I found a while ago at a garage sale, just an old trunk, however it felt somehow familiar. I later found out it belonged to a doctor who worked during and after the civil war, I later felt as I was being watched as i slept (as a doctor would do) and a lot of strange things happened but that's another story. Today I was at an antique shop and I normally just skim for new items as I'm there at least once a week, however today was different. I was walking along and something stopped me, a very old large black and white photograph (daguerreotype or the one after I believe) which I normally look at but then just pass by. However something was different about this. I recognized everybody in the picture, I felt that I had known them for a very long time. The first person I noticed was an older man sitting in a chair and he was . I didn' know what it meant but then my mom mentioned the doctor and it hit me, I got this sinking feeling in my chest and I knew it was him. Everything fell together then. The connection to the civil war, the unnatural urge to become a doctor, the need to have the chest and the feeling i had about it, and now very strongly recognizing this man and his entire family. My question is, is this a definite sign that I found a picture (which I'm going back to buy tomorrow, no matter how much it costs) of my past self? Also how do I learn more? How do I expand on this and discover who he was and what it all means?
