    Hi Ocean. Welcome back.

    I guess our reincarnation journeys are different. I know, beyond doubt, who I was in past lives for numorous reasons.

    Just two examples, for instance:

    1. I was homeless for years and one day, in an old barn with rats running around me, I had an epiphany. I was confronted with myself. It didn't matter that I had a hard life, it didn't matter what happened in my childhood...I was a man now! I had to deal with my own stuff. I pulled my bootstraps up and got down to the business of dragging myself out of the gutter. This was in 2002.

    Then, in 2014, I confronted what many in the world embrace and I demanded answers. I demanded to be confronted with myself again in order to change and grow again. It was then I learned that reincarnation was real. It was then I was confronted with my past lives...beyond any doubt.

    2. This is a straightforward one. I've known and encountered souls who I also encountered in my past lives and, just like myself, they haven't changed much although they have grown. If I wasn't who I claimed to be how does one explain these other 'players' coming into my life?

    I too am curious about others claimants beliefs and memories. I'm curious about how they arrived at their conclusions.

    Why, as a Caesar claimant, would you not want to confront and debate other claims? Surely as Rome's Elite you would wish to seize dominion over your own soul?

    That's how I view it anyway. Its about seizing what's mine...

    Hi S&S!

    Very nice to meet you again! :) Yes, it's been a while - Gosh, time passes by so quickly... And somehow I never manage to stay on a forum for long.
    Yes, why not reviving that old thread? It was an interesting read (the original topic) and maybe others would like to share their stories.

    Hey Jim!
    I understand where you are coming from, but, yes, I think we have a different attitude towards our past lives. Which doesn't mean that one approach is better than the other in general, just that it works better for the person in question. After all, we are all individuals with different journeys to accomplish and different things to learn.:)

    I for my part still don't really know why I got past life memories at all, other than "just for fun" and because I've always wished to remember my PLs, even as a child. There are positive things I gained from remembering, but I've also made the experience that it's unhealthy for me to focus on the past instead of living in the present. One particular PL memory gave me quite a hard time and led me down a road of pain and depression. That's why I keep everything at a safe distance and I don't allow my PLs to bother me that much anymore.

    I've already tried to explain. First: It's not possible to prove a famous PL like this to anybody, I can't even prove it to myself.
    If I remember something which is recorded in history books, there is always a chance that I read or heard about it somewhere sometime in my life, but I'm not aware of that anymore. If I remember something which is not recorded, how can anyone know if it is true? It cannot be verified.
    I have a scientific education this time around and there is a difference for me between knowing something based on evidence, and believing/feeling/being personally convinced of something. I need hard facts and proof, otherwise there will always be doubts. And if I cannot prove my claims, nor anyone else can prove their claims to me, a debate is senseless in my opinion. It would be a debate about personal beliefs. And who would win such a debate? The one who is the most convincing. This doesn't make their claim true though, nor does it prove anything. You still have to believe it.

    Second: I don't feel the need to, and it would be tiresome. I can talk to other claimants, we can exchange opinions and experiences, I'm absolutely fine with that. But I see no use in arguing and debating who's right and who's wrong. Even if I was the real Caesar in my PL, this means the others have either false memories for whatever reason (but are otherwise honest people, which is fine). Or they are delusional, mentally ill or simply liars and trolls. Why should I waste my time and energy to argue with such people (the lunatics and idiots) about something which isn't provable anyway? I have better things to do in my life. It's as simple as that.

    You seem to be quite possessive towards your past lives and defensive of them. I assume you gain something positive from that in your current life. I simply don't. Maybe this would be different if I was 100% sure that everything I remembered is true and not just fantasy or something, I don't know. I can imagine that I was Caesar, yes. I can identify with him and I could accept the idea that this was indeed my PL. But I cannot be sure. As I said, there is no hard proof for that. And as a rationally thinking person I remain sceptical towards my own PL memories and those of others, as long as they cannot be proven.
    I guess, the only thing which would work as evidence for me is, if there was someone who knew me in my past life and we would have the same memories of events which are not recorded anywhere.
    May I ask, how do you know that you met people from your past lives in this life? Did you recognize them somehow or do they have memories of their own matching with yours?

    Oh, this sounds really strange to me! :rolleyes: I don't feel like anyone is taking anything away from me by claiming the same famous PL, least of all taking anything away from my soul. Even if I was Caesar, I had numerous lives in between this PL and now. I dealt with many different topics and problems, other than power, wars and politics. I've learned and evolved, and I'm not the same person I was back then. Also, this PL must have been really extraordinary putting me in such a position of power. In my current life I'm an average, calm, sensible person. And although I may have strong opinions on a variety of topics, I don't go in for a confrontation with others if it's not really worth it or utterly important in real life. On the contrary, I mostly act diplomatically, seeking compromise and peace. You could say maybe, that imposing my will and opinion onto others at any costs as Caesar, just brought me to the point of getting murdered... So, not such a good idea in the end maybe ;) LOL

    Hi Ocean. Good to hear from you.

    Yup. Its about whatever works for you.

    I didn't gain memories 'just for fun' unfortunately but its true PL memories are a minefield. They can cause both pain and joy.

    I have one particular PL memory of my then son laying dead on the battlefield. Many later sources claim he died the next day yet upon studying contemporary annals there was no such mention of him having died the next day. Its seems that notion was sourced from a later propaganda piece that was birthed even after a decades later annal that also had no mention of him dying the next day.

    What I'm saying is that I have that memory of something not recorded in history books but that falls into the realm of the possible and perhaps even probable contemporary accounts. I have at most Junior Certificate history. There's simply no way I could possess memories that contradict later accounts but aren't contradicted by the then accounts of the period.

    As a scientifically minded person do you not think it adds weight to my memories? The fact I hold memories true to contemporary sources about events that had been exaggerated over the intervening millennia?

    The fact is that I'm not a scholar. I'm not even college educated. Yet I have memories spanning millennia about details I can't possibly have known.

    I wouldn't be debating who is right and who is wrong. I would be debating the idiocy and lunacy of their claims.

    Possessive is an odd word for you to use tbh. How can one be possessive of their own soul? It simply is what it is. I'm no more possessive of my past lives than I am of my current one. If someone was running around saying "I'm Jim!" I would say "Hey dickhead, what the EFF are you doing?" My past lives are no different. They are as much me as Jim is.

    I am also skeptical about every PL memory I attain. I objectively break down the details of them and I always find zero contradictions and total accuracy to the periods I'm analysing. That's not subjective belief. I didn't even know things existed in the historic record yet my memories detail them accurately.

    I met my past life fiance in my current life. This was before I remembered pls. Yet we still both wondered how we knew each other since we hadn't met before in our current lives.

    I also fell in love with a woman who married someone else in my past life and she did the same thing in my current life.

    I also met two people who were leaders in their past life and they are also leaders in their current life. In my pl memories it may take a second to look beyond superficial appearances but once the penny drops I see the same souls animating different bodies. Once its seen it can't be unseen.

    For me other claimants are taking from me. They are regaling others with stories of blandness and mediocrity. Two things I've never been accused of in any life. I can't believe people swallow their crap tbh.

    I didn't say you should impose your will on others. I simply said I don't understand why you wouldn't stake a claim to your own soul. I guess if your not sure about your pls that understandable though tbf.

    This part I can very much relate to. Though there's not anything I intend to do, there is all sorts of nonsense floating around out there in the public arena. But I know what I know, and I'm comfortable with that. It's odd how the stuff as viewed by outsiders is a pale representation of the real thing, often missing the point by so far as to be meaningless.

    Hello there!

    Thanks for your answer, Jim.

    Yes, I think so. Absolutely. Remembering something which isn't widely known and which you didn't know before, especially those little details, then finding confirmation for it in historical records, is a good validation for memories. I'm doing it the same way.

    It's not a proof, however, which is beyond any doubt. It could still be a coincidence that you've remembered the correct details. Or you could also have heard about it somewhere before (even if you are not a scholar of history), but you don't remember it consciously anymore. Our subconsciousness however remembers much more than we are aware of. This is a general dilemma with famous PLs. I'm not saying this to diminish your validations or to challenge you or something. (I've browsed through your other thread, btw, where you laid out some memories of Brian Boru, and I think you have some good points actually.) I'm just being objective. It's a lesser problem with the less famous PLs, though, which are not so widely known to the general public as the world famous ones.

    In the case of Caesar - well, this historical figure is so famous that there are numerous artworks, documentaries, scientific papers etc. everywhere, which I could have encountered during my life to consciously or subconsciously already know many things. And I did. I even took Latin classes in school. So I can never know for sure if I knew something before I had remembered it or not. See, that's my great problem regarding this possible PL of mine ;)

    Regarding Brian Boru, I cannot really judge how famous he is in the place you live. I've never heard of him before (sorry...), but I realize he was one of the big players in the history of medieval Ireland. But I don't know how probable or improbable it is for someone living in Ireland to know some details about this historical figure. When I compare to important kings and rulers of my own country, sure I know at least something about them and their time period.

    So I think it's good you are always skeptical and looking for validations. That's just reasonable and the best method to obtain at least some level of certainty, I guess. Btw, I know the problem with historical sources that emerged decades later after the actual events, as well as rumors and legends that came even later on throughout the centuries. It's common that legends and famous pieces of art stick more in the peoples' heads than the actual events. Caesar's famous last words "Et tu, Brute?" which were laid into his mouth by Shakespeare are a good example of that.

    But in the end everyone has to decide for themselves, considering all possibilities and taking everything into account, historical validations as well as your gut feeling and intuition. But even if you've come to the conclusion that you are absolutely sure about your own case, this will never be proof according to the standards of science, which would need to be verifiable by others anytime, anyplace. Unfortunately.

    That's actually exactly what I meant :) I think you are more attached to your PLs than I am or some others here are, and therefore feel the need to always defend them against wrong accusations or others who claim the same PL - just as you would defend your current self against scamers and lies in real life. I cannot really relate to that. If these are your PLs, then nobody can take them away from you or change the truth, whatever they say or claim to be. That's how I view it. And you will always know the truth for yourself. Sure you can be annoyed by the nonsense they spread about your PL self. I understand that. But you will always have to deal with that having a famous PL. There will always be attempts to ridicule and belittle powerful historical figures, there will be wrong interpretations made by historians, words laid into your mouth, or just stupid people who talk nonsense. Just think of celebrities nowadays and all the rumors that are spread about them. IMHO it's not worth the effort to bother with all that. My PLs are also like a past of mine that I can put to rest. I can shake my head and laugh about stupid claims and move on. But I see, others here feel just like you.

    Maybe you didn't have many incarnations between Brian Boru and this life. Or maybe this life is just very much connected to the other PLs you remember. I read once that some of our incarnations are more connected to each other than others because they deal with similar topics and problems. Like a series of lessons. But those lessons do not have to appear in a chronological order in history. There can be other incarnations between them dealing with something else. But it would be more likely for us to remember those PLs which have such a connection to this current life. Maybe that's the case with you. Just my thoughts :)

    Btw, English is not my native language. So if I use strange words or phrasing sometimes, blame it on that, LOL, and feel free to ask me anytime :D

    I want to add, that in a real life face-to-face conversation this would be a bit different probably. If someone came directly at me saying "You cannot be X, because I am", I would at least argue that it is just as possible for me to be X than for them. And I would demand evidence for their claim if they insisted on their point. But on the Internet I don't really care. You never really know who hides behind a keyboard and why they are doing what they are doing.

    Where did you meet other claimants to your PLs? You wrote somewhere that your PL claim was ridiculed and that you had been insulted by people, if I remember correctly. Did this happen on this forum??? I'm just curious.

    Akhenaten really? I’ve never met anyone who claimed to be Akhenaten!! If you find them again tell them to sling me a message! *insert silly laughing face because this forum is very limited on emoji’s*.

    In all seriousness I hadn’t realised Akhenaten was popular amongst claimants, I am surprised to learn that!

    Hi Speedwell. I also know what I know but I don't want blazing mediocrities dragging their knuckles into my pissing ground.

    I dunno why. Its just the way I am.

    No Ocean. Its not proof but surely consistent 'coincidence' again and again, repeated a couple of dozen times at least goes beyond coincidence? Its like rolling six on a dice over and over again. It can happen a few times but not dozens in a row.

    As a scientifically minded person where would you draw the line between coincidence and accuracy?

    By the way, in Ireland, during the Civil War, most of the medieval records were destroyed in 1922. The rough outline and story of Brian Boru is known but not intricate details. I hold those details and where possible they were confirmed by the historic record, sometimes through shards of knowledge not generally known and certainly not to a teenage boy such as I was. My memories brought me to the scholars not vice versa. My ignorance of the period in question is my 'proof'. I simply couldn't have heard the details I know.

    Besides, Murchads death in the annals is a simple statement of his death. They don't contain the details I remember. I couldn't have read about it anywhere because what I remember wasn't recorded anywhere. How do you explain that?

    I ENJOY destroying claims. Its not that its not worth the bother, I find it entertaining.

    I've seen other claimants to my pls in a documentary and on the internet. They are either long since inactive or don't want to engage with me. Its a shame. I LOVE fresh meat.

    That’s a good question… Looking as an outsider at any PL case, it's always hard for me to say where to draw the line.

    Real science would require a method of calculation or statistical analysis or some other tool which you could apply to each PL case in the same way to get an objective result. But there is no such thing unfortunately. So it all comes down to what makes most sense to me and what is most believable.

    Generally speaking every other possibility or explanation needs to be ruled out as good as possible, and there need to be at least some validated memories. The more the better.

    Young children's PL cases present the strongest evidence for reincarnation IMO, then non-famous PL of adults where you can track down the name, time and place, life circumstances etc. of a PL self and it all matches up with memories. Everything else, where you don’t have these kind of validations, will always be a possibility in my eyes. I really want to believe all the other cases as well, but I guess from a rational point of view I will never be able to say: Now that's the point where I can be absolutely sure that their claim is true - be it famous or non-famous PL.

    I look at my own PLs the same way. From a rational point of view I see them as possibilities, and I'm more sure about some than about others. But here it's also a question of my feeling about everything and what I am willing to accept for myself. Also, my rational thinking was always somewhat contrary to my intuition and to what I "just know to be true" from my higher self regarding spirituality and my own soul evolution.

    If you are absolutely sure you couldn't have learned before about the details you've remembered, AND they are consistent with historical records, then this strongly indicates that your PL memories are real IMO. And I agree this is a valid "proof" for yourself.

    But when we remember details that are not recorded anywhere, then we just cannot know if it is true at all. It could be just our imagination running wild, our mind making it up subconsciously, maybe filling in the gaps between our real PL memories. We may feel or "know" for ourselves that it is true, but nobody else can verify it. So for an outsider this is no evidence at all.

    It would be strong evidence for me however, if two or more people, who remember the same historical events in their respective past lives, would remember the same details independently of each other.

    That really made me laugh! LOL Then go for it and enjoy yourself! Maybe I'll watch you one day arguing with some other claimant on this forum. Anyways, your case looks quite intriguing and it's interesting to talk to you. Thanks and take care :)

    I agree with you about children's cases but they are also based on the same principal we all should hold ourselves to. The best evidence by far is having knowledge of something that you couldn't have known previously.

    Obviously with children this is always going to be the case but in adults, it's easier to cite cryptomnesia as the source of the memory.

    Being a cross-cultural case myself, I've been able to research memories dreams and impressions with some good accuracy.

    However if you're from the same culture as your past life, it becomes harder to avoid cryptomanesia or out right hoaxing. The same could be said about me too, as I discovered my past lives at the beginning of my 30's.

    Privately I go by the "could not have known" verifications with other factual alignments as secondary, but strengthening factors. Publicly I go by the "extraordinary class require extraordinary proof" axiom.

    Hey Totoro! :)

    I agree with you on everything you said.

    Some more thoughts:

    Yes, I think remembering PLs from a time and culture completely foreign and unknown to us in current life and getting the historical/cultural details right is another good example of having otherwise unexplainable knowledge - just as with children. This adds much more credibility to the case than remembering lives from our own culture.

    As for cultural influences and cryptomnesia: On the one hand I believe getting in touch with the time period and/or culture of our PLs in current life can serve as a trigger to remember those PLs. Also I think feeling attracted to a certain time period or culture can be a hint/further confirmation that we in fact lived in those times, and it's more likely to happen that we remember PLs from a time period which we've always liked and felt familiar with anyway in current life.

    But on the other hand such influences and likings could as well generate false PL memories IMO, because we wish to have lived in those times. So this is always like a double-edged sword in my eyes.

    All the PLs I've remembered so far were in Europe, so in the same culture and place as my current life.

    There are quite a few details from my PLs where I think: I couldn't know that! Never heard of it before! But then you can never be absolutely sure. I started having memories as an adult, and it's not like I was ignorant to the history of the continent all the time and did not travel around. So cryptomnesia can never be ruled out completely, I guess.

    Actually I became more skeptical of all my average, non-famous PLs because of the famous PL memories I had, which are so outstanding as a claim. But I can't simply dismiss everything either. (I'm thinking of making an own thread about my thoughts on this.)

    As for now I can live with the idea that I will never know for sure - not until I die and become one with my higher self again.

    Hi Ocean.

    Don't forget there is also a theoretical side to science. For instance child cases are suggestive of reincarnation but not necessarily proof positive.

    My point wasn't that I remember details that aren't recorded. My point was that I remember details that are contradicted by some later sources but not contradicted by contemporary accounts. There is simply no way I could have studied contemporary annals to such a degree that I constructed memories that fall in line with them but are contradicted by more popular mythos making and then simply forgot I had studied them. Thats taking cryptonesiaia a bit far don't you think? Such things require conscious thought.

    In that case I am either a hoaxer or I'm experiencing accurate memories no?

    I was never attracted by most of the periods of my past lives nor the people I have been. I was drawn to early twentieth century Ireland but not enough to study it. I simply regretted not asking my grandparents about it when they were alive.

    I couldn't have constructed my memories anyway because they come to me as waking visions. I see the memories play out in real time. They don't come in dreams or regressions and such.

    I wouldn't want to live in ancient Mongolia again. Rough neighborhood lol. I never had much fondness for Mongolia until about 2 years ago when those memories started to pile up, probably thanks to my PL mom making an unexpected appearance; that's my theory anyway.

    When I was little, I had a few pretty clear memories of my life in Rome, but I had no exposure to anything relating to Roman/Italian culture (besides the yummy food). Didn't know too much about Rome until I was about 10 or so. I also remember trying to convince my mom that I was Italian because that was the best my little kid brain could come up with. I knew what I was trying to say, but I didn't have the knowledge to say 'Roman'.

    I didn't start having vivid memories until shortly after my 18th birthday. I've seen about of my 5 past lives and only one of them was in America where I live now.

    Hello Klaud!
    Thanks for sharing. Children remembering past lives is very intriguing indeed.
    Do you know any more details about your Roman past life? Do you know in which period of Ancient Rome you lived? Republic or Empire or another?


    Hello Jim!
    Sorry for the late response.

    I was referring to this particular passage of yours when I was talking about memories that are not recorded anywhere and therefore cannot serve as evidence. My impression was you were talking here about details like Murchard's injuries or something which were part of your memories, but were not recorded in the annals, nor anywhere else at all. Anyway...

    Regarding your memory of Murchard's date of death which matches the less known contemporary records - I can only repeat myself here: That's a good validation of your memories and it makes your case more credible from an outsider's point of view. And of course, if this happens again and again, it adds even more credibility to it. I'd always encourage everyone who remembers PLs to look carefully into recorded history and to look for validations like this one. And I think we can agree that your case is based on some solid ground.

    However, in general I'm not of the opinion that something like cryptomnesia or subconscious knowledge can be ruled out completely when it comes to famous past lives. I think it would require very little effort to know at least about some correct historic details without studying history at length. You may have zapped into a documentary on TV for example, someone else might have told you once because they are interested in history, you might have read a headline about the latest historical research or something. Anything is possible here. After all you are living in Ireland, the very country where Brian Boru is really famous and of interest, and the human mind is very complex. That's my point.

    But maybe I'm drawing conclusion about others here based on myself. You know, I'm quite intersted in the history of my own country, so I keep my eyes open to it and there is really so much everywhere around me where I might have picked up something.

    In the end only you yourself can know if it was likely or rather unlikely to know all the details before, and if you are experiencing real memories of a PL or something else. Everyone of us needs to find out for themselves by looking for validations, as well as listening to their inner self, and nobody else from outside can tell us. I'd also never call you or anyone else here a hoaxer, I'd rather give everyone the benefit of the doubt.

    But I've seen some people jumping to conclusions about their alleged famous past lives based on almost nothing and getting obsessed about it for years. So I just think it's good to always be honest to ourselves and to consider other possibilities as well.

    Hi Ocean.

    No...Murchads injuries that I remember aren't recorded anywhere. It was a thousand years ago though. I mean....I can't even conclusively prove that my birthmark, shaped like a bullet entry wound, is in the right spot as my last life death in 1922 as no autopsy was performed. Even recent history can be blurry let alone medieval history.

    Why can't cryptonesia be ruled out? I am a self educated man who can debate a wide range of topics but the circles I run in are tradesmen and skilled workers. I never had an interest in Medieval Irish history either before I gained memories. I never had a conversation about it with anyone.

    Besides, the kind of people who could have given me subconsciously the kind of details I remember would have to be college educated and they hire me as the help. They don't engage in debates with me, I'm simply there to work. I've never encountered a layman with an interest in that period either and if I had I wouldn't have discussed it with them because I had no interest in the period before remembering.

    I did discuss recent Irish history once with very powerful, college educated individuals yet even then they had to correct my fuzzy, Junior Cert level knowledge of it because I hadn't been educated on it to the level they were. That's why I haven't mentioned Collins in detail in this topic, because I had discussed his particular time period before I remembered ( although even with Collins I couldn't have known the level of detail I now remember ).

    Yup, I'm living in Ireland but I'm in a working class area, most everyone here that knows about Boru knows he fought at Clontarf and that pubs and streets are named after him...that's it. I'm a deep thinker myself and very intelligent but when I try to discuss anything in any great depth with people in my life I'm told to shut the EFF up and have another drink, so I limit debate to online discussion.

    I couldn't have known the majority of what I remember. I didn't even know nobles and kings were the ones who wore blue in medieval Ireland yet I described it because I remembered seeing it clearly. I had to go to college sources to confirm its accuracy.

    Yea I've seen people get obsessed about past lives based on very little evidence. It comes across as ridiculous to me. I wouldn't call myself obsessed though. I just remember things from my other lives and search for validation and explore their impact on me. Examining others claims is a fun distraction from that for me too.

    Oh Ocean, also if I had seen a Brian Boru documentary ( which I didn't ) before remembering it would have followed these lines:



    This documentary seems to have been an embellished form of the annals with a little of the Cogadh Gaedhel Re Galliabh sprinkled throughout.

    It only says two things that my memories describe outside of the general narrative. It conveys the use of axes in the 960s and shows a stone church....that's it.

    This is what I'm saying to you. My memories go beyond the historical hagiography of your average documentary an uneducated man would see on TV.

    Also in regard to archaeological reports I might have read they haven't even found the exact location of the battle of Clontarf ( so that documentary was embellished ). I know it was on a flat plain with a forested area about eighty feet from the bodies but I can't prove it. I can't have read stuff that hasn't been discovered yet.

    It was definitely during the Roman Empire, but I'm not sure on the exact time frame. My only really clear memory is bleeding out inside the colosseum at the hands of a gladiator. Sometimes they'd put slaves, prisoners, or undesirable citizens into the ring to fight with animals or gladiators. I definitely wasn't famous. Pretty brutal way to die.

    What makes you think it was Roman, and not e.g. Spartan or whatever?

    That's a good question Cyrus.

    What makes Klaud think she was a Roman and not simply the subject of an Empire?

    Sorry for the delayed response. My town unexpectedly experienced the equivalent of a category 3 hurricane and it's been a weird few days.

    It was definitely the colosseum, which wasn't built until the Roman Empire, and my memory was in Vulgar Latin. I have a few hazy memories of Rome itself as well.
