    Hello, my name is Greta and I'm from Brazil. Excuse-me, then, for my poor English.

    During all my life, I've been fascinated with WWII, Holocaust, Nazi Occupation and Poland. Movies and books about the German Army always made my cry.
    Since childhood, I have dreams that I believe are related to a past life in Nazi Germany.
    In some of these dreams, I see myself as a boy who lost his father during the First World War. In others, briefly, I see myself as an adult, wearing a uniform, in the city of Krakow. Recently, in a regressive dream, I saw myself in a cafe in the city, which exists today, during a hand grenade attack by Jewish resistance. After that dream, a pain I had felt for years improved considerably.
    After finding out that this place really existed, I looked for information on the victims of the attack, but apparently there are no records for sure.
    So, curious to find out more, I asked a friend to use the pendulum, so I would be able to know if I was a member of the Wehrmacht or the SS. The pendulum replied that I was a member of the SS.
    To confirm this information, which made me a bit upset, since in my current life I repudiate any form of prejudice, I went to a tarot consultation, where I repeated the question.
    I took a card similar to The Devil Card and the Reader told me that I did not belong to the SS or the Wehrmacht, I was just a egoistic and self centered person that lived during that period.
    This has made me extremely disturbed. I rely heavily on the tarot, but it did suggest a completely contradictory response to my dreams and memories. Are my memories false? Has anyone here ever experienced similar experience?

    Good morning Greta!

    It seems that the memories you claim are related to a precise period of history, and I have to say that in definitive there will never be certainty regarding the answers you can find within yourself.

    You said that your mental health and well-being improved greatly after having a dream of a grenade attack. Well, I think that is all that matters. As for finding answers and details, you have your entire life to navigate your memories and search for answers.

    I would personally not focus too much on these external sources to validate or not the accuracy of your visions. I would kindly advise you to remember that dream and the positive effects that came from it! That is all that matters because, ultimately, it's your story and your life and no one else's.

    If you wish to read more about past lifes in Germany during the 3rd Reich, there are some good threads here, such as Tanker's memories of being a tank driver, or mine.

    I wish you all the best and hope that you will have a lot of good discussions with other members!

    Benjamin

    Hi, Benjamin, thank you for your kind words!

    I am an insecure person, so I end up trusting others more than myself. That's why I was so shaken by what she told me, I felt as if everything I believed was a lie.
    I will certainly read the other threads, thanks for the recommendation and for answering so kindly.
    Have a nice Sunday!

    Hi, if I were you I would not trust a pendulum nor a tarot card. You could try regression meditation and see if it comes up. I've had memory-bits in a waked state since childhood about one experienced past life who's identity I've found, and many things of what I experienced had happened to her, and her loved ones, have been accurate down to the very core. There was no way of me knowing. I know the feeling of being insecure and trying to tell yourself it's imagination - but come on, one does know the difference between imagination and this; they are two different things, but yes I know it is a struggle for any logical brain especially when you've been brought up with atheists and are not familiar with the reincarnation belief. Trust yourself and don't go by what other skeptics and non believers say. It took me many years, strangely, to finally come to the conclusion that all the answers were in that past life and with those who had lived with her, not the other way around and that I had to stop thinking I had to collect more and more proof (I already had so many) to show my (skeptic and non believer for a) mother (which was her right by the way and I loved her very much). So trust yourself, and like the saying it's your life (or really past life ;) ). Wish you luck :)

    Never trust external people to tell you who you are or were. Only proper PL regression. Personally I prefer unguided, because I don't want to be led or have someome poke around in my personal stuff. Dreams are an indication, but can be just a dream. Been digging into my past lives, also including the Waffen SS, for many years by now. Sometimes you are thrown a curve ball or misinterpret something. Several regressions are recommended, as it is the difference between knowing and doubting. I had a ton of doubts for the longest time, but kept digging. Sometimes a regression yields very little, and sometimes it will give you back things you couldn't have known otherwise. It won't prove to science that you were someone else, but it will damned well sure prove it to yourself. Approach it methodically and get to the bottom of it.

    Hello and thanks for the kind words!

    You described me a little! I think I need a lot of evidence to believe in something and I end up giving more validity to outsiders than to myself. In the end, I think it's just like you and Benjamin have said - whoever should know the truth about myself is me, especially after feeling even physical effects after coming into contact with those memories.
    I think it can also be a misinterpretation of the Reader, it can happen sometimes.
    I hope you are dealing well with this situation involving your mother. I know what it's like to have to deal with skeptics. My boyfriend does not believe in any of this, so I could not even tell him what has distressed me lately.

    Thank you for answering me!

    It's a pleasure to read your words, Greta!

    I am glad you are finding confort in our words. As to being easily influenced by others, that is something I have experienced many times too, due to my emotional and sensitive nature, until the natural process of growing up and learning about myself made me understand that my point of view is as valid and important as any one else :)

    In any case, I wish you well and kindly suggest that you start learning about meditation. Of course there are many forms and techniques to meditate, but from what you have shared about you I am sure that you would find it very self-affirming and positive.

    Benjamin

    Hi, Ritter, thank you for answering!

    I never thought about doing regression alone, but I went to look for some videos and I came across some meditations from Brian Weiss. Would you please have some further indication?

    Thanks!

    Yes, I feel very much the same, I am very sensitive too. But we do have to
    learn that our points of view are as (and, in some cases, even more) important as those of others. Even so, sometimes it's so hard to believe in ourselves. In this effort, I keep thinking about all the right things this Reader has said to me and I fell completely confused!

    I am a difficult person to learn at times - on many occasions, my intuition proved right, and yet I doubted myself and gave more value to what other people said. I hope I can learn soon to believe in myself ><

    Ritter said something similar about meditation. Are there any that you could recommend me, please?

    I thank you again for your patience and for the willingness to talk to me!

    I made a simple search and used this. Beforehand, I had practiced meditation a few times daily with the intention of remembering. I had that much guidance. I was told to clear my chakras, as I was apparently blocked.

    Hello, Greta, and welcome to this forum. I really hope it will help you sort out your thoughts in the safety of our friendship.

    I would definitely suggest not using pendulums or cards. Outside sources can be open to question, and clearly could bring confusion. Your own dreams and memories are specific to you, and I don't believe most outside people could interpret them one way or another, least of all to use that to your disadvantage. Learn to trust yourself - only you know your own truth. And remember that so much of this takes time to develop in you, especially if your memories are difficult ones. Obviously I can only offer this advice from a personal point of view ...

    I've had a long lifetime without any influence at all on my memories, as for various reasons I had to keep them all to myself too. I intentionally avoided anything I thought might interfere with what I remembered first hand of WW2 and my part in it. The main thing was that I have never felt the need to prove it to anyone, as I know what happened to me and nothing could alter that - however unlikely it might sound. It had never occurred to me that anyone might question the truth of my story. I'm lucky in that I remember a fair amount of my other life, and who I was, so perhaps didn't have the same degree of questioning that worries you.

    Since finding this forum not long ago I've found it fascinating to read other people's experiences, and it came as a big surprise that others have done so much in the way of regression and research when I've had none. I'm only just wondering if trying things like that could unlock further memories, although I don't find it something that's essential. Having said that, I've recently tried the Brian Weiss meditation, which did produce a small further memory that made sense of something that had puzzled me for years. So maybe that might help you?

    I hope we can all help you make discoveries which will not only be a source of interest for your past, but also help you to have the confidence in your own life now. Trust in yourself - you have amazing things in you already, that no-one can take away. Good luck, Greta.

    Hi, Tanker, thank you for your words!
    Trusting myself more has been the general advice here and I am taking it seriously and trying to think less about it.
    I'm going to start practicing meditation today, as you all recommended. I guess having more concrete information could help me. The only concrete thing I have for my dreams is that I was in the Cyganeria bombing in Krakow in December 1942.
    I read your thread and I identified with some points, especially with the feeling of melancholy and the obsession with certain WWII themes. When I was a child, my mother had to hide all the books on the subject because she thought my interest was not healthy. Thank you for sharing your experience!

    Thank you for answering me too, all of you are helping me to gain self-confidence!

    Good. It could take a while. I meditated with the intention of remembering for three weeks until I had my first dream. It was only after that that I did the regressions. The meditation in question that I did was so called Golden Light meditation. Basically visualizing a shaft of golden light coming in through the crown chakra and methodically going down through the rest and spreading into each part of the body, out to the fingertips etc. You get the picture, it is very uncomplicated. I didn't think it would do much, but it was pleasant enough. It was very surprising when it actually ptoduced results. Then when it did, I ventured on to regressions.

    So, yesterday and today I did meditation exercises. I started with the technique of Yoga Nidra, in a meditation very similar to the one that Ritter suggested, for the opening of the Chakras. They lasted approximately 50 minutes each. I dozed in a few pieces, and sometimes I would wake up scared.
    I'll keep practicing and I'll be back to tell you!

    Thank you!
    I tried a technique very similar to the one you describes: you have to try to relax every part of your body by enveloping them in light. When it started, I said three times to myself that I wanted to remember. I'll keep trying until I get some results!

    Those who make their living with tarot cards only do what is known as "cold readings" meaning that they are frauds and not worth the thought nor the time at all. As for the signs chances are in your favor that you do have a connection to the period but just be mindful that sometimes the answers are not always to our liking, good luck.

    Hello, and welcome!

    I understand your confusion, as I have been led down many 'rabbit-holes' in my search for answers. I've long been interested in WWII, in particular the American effort and the Holocaust. The latter has always deeply upset me, I feel an unease watching Schindler's List or other films/shows related to it. I felt something of an 'affinity' to Art Spiegelman's Maus graphic novel (where my avatar comes from), when I read it back in college. But, when I did regressions, I had several contradicting images. Some, I feel now, were created from my imagination. They were influenced by what I was hoping to see. I also feel as though my subconscious knew what was waiting for me, and sent me down false paths of homely American lives that were not mine. Away from the horrors of the war, with baby carriages and pretty heeled shoes.

    Recently, after several fervent weeks of research, I have been taking a break from my search for answers. Still, the Holocaust lingers in the back of my mind. As does the name of a young American infantryman buried in Lorraine, France. I had dug through records of names from Bergen-Belsen and Auschwitz, for a Jakob (the only clear name I received during regressions), and found a Polish man I felt a connection to. But, his name doesn't come as clear and quick as the American infantryman (called Jacob). French songs from the era bring, rising up within, a sense of nostalgic patriotism, while the old American Paratrooper song "Blood on the Risers" invokes a sense of vigorous gaiety. Images of sitting around with armed men and uniformed soldiers, cigarette smoke filling the air and wine spilling from cups and glasses, often come to mind. Leading me down the path of a female Maquis (French Resistance) figure, who spent an evening or two with the Americans before being captured and carted off to a concentration camp.

    So, it might take a while for the past to become clear to you. Subconscious threads leading you down false paths, a longing to find the truth making you cling to what makes the most sense in that moment. Keep trying, and it will eventually become clear.
