    Many years ago when I was in high school, I had a friend who I would talk to about reincarnation. She practiced Wicca and supposedly was able to sense other peoples past lives. I remember she said that she picked up two things very strongly from me. One was the number 324, which she said she felt indicated the year that I was born for the first time. Unfortunately I forgot to ask her if it was BC or AD, as there is a world of difference between 324 BC and 324 AD. My gut tells me that it is likely AD. I've never really felt any connection to any BC cultures like the Egyptians or Ancient Greeks etc. She also said that she was picking up very strongly, that I had been killed during the Reign of Terror in the French Revolution. The only thing is, I have never felt any connection to that period in French history or to France in general. I've never had any memories, any dreams, I've never felt any strong emotional connections when reading about the French Revolution. The 18th century is one of my favorite historical periods however, but I've always been mainly interested in Britain and the colonies. So my thing is, how much should I trust another person's feelings about a past life? I don't feel like she had any reason to make it up, but I'm kind of hesitant to really embrace it as a true past life. I guess all these years I've just kind of categorized it as possible but unconfirmed.

    I guess you should keep on doing this. You are your ultimate source yourself, but... you never know. Maybe she had those strong feelings because your friend was with you those times.

    There's only one that I trust, we were family a few times and now we practically are again, blood doesn't define family

    She's been spot on, and confirmed what I've found out
    We lived during the Roman period and it's actually the only PL she revealed that I have no connection to, except for a strong love to a city, and no memories (which sucks because I was appearently close to Ceasar and whether that's a good thing or not, your guess is as good as mine)

    I agree with Fireflydancing, keep it as "possible but unconfirmed". I only trust what I experiment myself. If you want to confirm what your friend said, why don't you try a regression by meditation ?

    CanSol, were you close to Julius Caesar ? I have a past life of a roman centurion in Gallic Wars in the legions of Caesar. I didn't know him personally, but I probably saw him a few times. ;)

    Other than some hunches and feelings, I don't remember anything from the Roman era

    Don't know why, I know atleast sniplets of basically all of my others so my answer would be based on my first thought: I guess so, it's what I somehow 'know' and what other people independent of each other mentioned
    But considering that that life was probably bloody as well I'm not going to actively dig in it unless it starts to bother me somehow

    I had a friend from college tell me about a few of my past lives. I’d most likely have been a little skeptical, but this is the same guy who told me what my current boyfriend’s name would be before we met, where our first date was going to be, and he’s also predicted some other things he would have absolutely no way of knowing and been dead on, so I do put some value on what he says. I asked him once how he knew, and he said he can see it, whatever that means.

    Always weigh any potential new information carefully. Ask yourself, "Does this seem right?" Usually, your intuition knows the truth.

    I give a decent amount of credit to information passed to me by spiritually aware people. I spend a good deal of time talking with a spirit medium friend of mine. She's very powerful and is almost always right. Almost. The problem is that sometimes information can be miss-communicated or get scrambled up when it is being compiled (either on this side of the veil or the other). One time, she told me about a lifetime where I was a prominent knight under Edward the Second. It turns out this was jumbled information. I had actually lived under Edward the First. While I was often a knight or similar occupations, in that lifetime, I was actually a prominent criminal (maybe a freedom fighter). After I got enough information myself, I talked to her about it and she realized and accepted the mistake.

    In my experience, you can also give weight to people who knew you in the past identifying you in the present. Before I even believed in reincarnation, I accidentally identified one of my best friend's past lives. We were both fairly minor historical figures who had somehow made it into certain media adaptations. For no good reason, I just kept insisting on comparing my friend to this one minor figure (and it turns out, I was correct to do so).

    As for the information about your potential first lifetime, DerFlieger, who knows? Just because you do not relate to civilizations like Ancient Greece or Ancient Egypt, it does not mean that you were not around at this time. There were still countless people in other places in the world at those times. Maybe there is a contemporary civilization out there that you would feel a connection to if only you heard about it.
