Discussion in 'Past Life Memories' started by Darius, Apr 3, 2016.
Have any of you been reunited with people you knew in a past life?
When I was in 6th grade - I moved to a new school and met two classmates whom I knew I had shared a past life with. The first encounter was spontaneous and both of us shared the same past life recall. We even had 'pre-birth' memories of and making the arrangements to meet up and cross paths - at the very location and time we had met. It was the first time in my young life where I was able to validate my own recall with someone outside of my self. The second classmate had been absent when I arrived and was out for a week. I didn't meet him at school. I met him while walking by his house. It was a repeat of what had happened with the other classmate - only - it wasn't spontaneous. He didn't express the overwhelming memories that I was struggling with. I kept quiet about it and thought maybe it was residual from the first meeting with the other classmate.
After I got to know him better - I brought it up. He said he had it within his grasp and 'threw it back in' as fast as he could without looking at it. He described it as - putting his hand down in a pool of murky water - and 'feeling' something. He said he could feel it - but - due to his religious upbringing - was reluctant to have the firm knowledge of what he had been 'feeling.' So, he had intentionally blocked his past life recall with me. He said he knew it in his heart - but - he didn't want to know it with his mind because it was too troubling.
Him sharing his 'feeling' with me wasn't the same as the other classmate who had shared his own inner knowledge with me. I didn't know it was possible to 'block' past life recall like that - but learned to do it when I arrived in the halls of Junior High - because I ran into another classmate whom I had that 'feeling' of sharing a past life with. I blocked it. He didn't. He got upset with me because I wouldn't confirm his individual memories. I felt I was juggling two other past life associates and I didn't want to complicate it any more than it already was. I learned how to block direct recall myself. This was a large accomplishment in my childhood because I had grown up feeling no control over it - what so ever.
We moved again and in the new city - I ran into three more. The first one caught me by surprise and I wasn't able to block it. So, we were able to talk about the past life we had shared together. The other two, I wouldn't acknowledge the direct memory and told them I had the 'feeling' and didn't want to pull that 'rock' up out of the water to look at it directly.
But, that was the norm for me during my teens and early adult life. I would run into past life associates many times - and - many times the other person would block the memories often times, unconsciously.
I have had a lot of experience in my lifetime with meeting and being reunited with past life associates.
Wow. You've experienced a lot with this sort of thing then. I have as well. My current sister is one of the people I knew.
This kind of thing happens quite a bit from what I can tell, and often extends over several lifetimes. There are numerous posts reporting such things. You might enjoy reading Tanguerra's thread about her friend "X" and about a relationship that has been ongoing over numerous lifetimes.
I should find that thread then! Thank you. I have recently reunited with someone I once knew. But I've met them astrally, not yet physically.
I believe i've met quite a lot of past life acquaintances from mt time at school, work, and random encounters in the library and in the park in my town. Strangely it's possible i've met PL acquaintances on PS3 online and penpal sites though i'm not sure about these as i'm not sure it's possible to meet PL people in this way.
Let's see. Here's a list of the ones that are most clearly past life acquaintances off the top of my head. I'll add a note to clarify my thoughts on each.
My best friend, Mika. (on another continent, but closest emotionally) We each have different perspectives on the same life's memories. Hers was a dream from ten years before, then I shared an interesting PL meditation experience with her and she told me about having had the same dream, with her own unique details years before.
I remember multiple other lives with her and another mutual acquaintance who she has been friends with for longer than she has known me. We think that friend has met another individual that all three of us have shared lives with, so Mika and I are watching their friendship develop with interest and hoping we'll have a chance to meet them and test our theory.
My ex husband turned out to be "my father who murdered me" in a PL memory of him, and also an abusive boyfriend in another memory of him. No wonder that attraction didn't work out so well. Feeling drawn to someone because you're somehow "immediately connected" doesn't mean you're "meant to be together" ... just in case you're wondering. Soul mate? Whatever. That connection can be felt with people who treat you well and appreciate you, and with those who don't.
Three different men I considered dating in the past few years. I think they were all boyfriends or close somehow in my most recent previous life. (I seem to have been close to a lot of men in that one.) A few came with flashes of other lives. Nothing too clear. The reason I'm certain is because I felt like I knew them the moment we met. I'm still friends with all of them even though we agreed that this life isn't meant to be shared as partners.
A young man I met a couple years ago. I never thought of dating him, but we definitely connected and I keep an eye on his life and look for ways to encourage and mentor him if needed.
Two of my local, female friends were probably acquaintances from previous lives, though I don't have specific memories or even a strong sense of familiarity. They've both suggested that they feel like we've been sisters and friends before. I've always gotten along well with them and wanted to get to know them better from the start, for my part.
The grandma of a good friend (who visited him when I was in middle school) was clearly someone from a PL in retrospect. (Even though it was before I even knew about reincarnation.) I think I might have spent more time with her during that visit than he did.
It's hard to guess, but some of my compulsive attractions as a teen were probably because the guys (and one or two girls I wanted to be BFFs with) had a PL history with me, though they weren't attracted themselves. It's hard to guess, because crushes are crushes and I don't remember any glimpses of specific memories. Some were a bit obsessive on my part, and lasted well into adulthood. Even now I'm more interested in their lives than with most people, even though I no longer feel any inclination to be close to them.
A famous actor (who need not be named) is someone I rescued after horse-riding related, life-threatening injuries in at least two lives. In one he was an elderly mentor who kept me safe till he died of a heart problem, and in the other I think I ended up being murdered for witchcraft charges somehow related to the way I helped him recover from his injuries. *shrug*
If you think about it, there are a lot of people who we've encountered in all our potential lives. It's not surprising to run into them and feel that sense of recognition at one level or another. I think the ones we've shared many, many lives with are more rare but certainly not limited to only a few.
Mika and I are unusually aware of our shared history, and it helped us understand why our friendship has always been so strong and trusting from the start, but I don't think we needed to remember to be this close, if that makes sense.
A note on soul mates:
Obviously not all the people we meet are going to become healthy relationships. Just because we spent a lifetime trying to make them happy and didn't succeed then (or even if we did) it doesn't mean we're going to be close in the same way this time around. People need time to become capable of the connections we offer sometimes. They especially need to learn to be healthy in relationships themselves, first.
You've come across many. Wow!
My current life sister - I have known her several times. I'm sure more than I even know of at the moment. On top of this, I have recently come in contact with somebody I knew in a few past lives. He's been visiting me astrally since late last year. It's quite the experience.
I've come across people I've known in past lives online. Me and my best online friend have the same memories of a house, which I believe I lived in. When we started texting each other I felt an instant connection with her. It was like I've known her forever.
She has had flashbacks where she is a woman who is crying, and there were children who ran in panic. We're planning to meet in the summer holidays, and I think it's possible that she could have been a family member from my most recent past life in WW2.
In response to Carloloner, it's quite possible to meet people and recognize the connection even at a distance. The internet and media actually just give us more opportunity than anything. I don't think distance has ever been much of a factor when it comes to that inner sense of connection.
I agree with that.
Indeed it is true one can come across people being it online or in real life. I met a couple of people from my past. One of the most important people has been meeting was my I would say best friend in this life and my ex today. We had many past lives together as cousins, lover, husband and wife and today I consider him one of my closest friends, I can speak to him about anything despit our romantic past and he knows me better then many people does. I do not regret meeting him ever. We meet online years ago and we meet in reality a couple of times. I also meet some of my past life cousins online and enjoying meeting them together. It is a great feeling to meet them as I back then hardly was able to spend time with them and meeting them today it is like patching up back where we left off back then.
I do also believe I meet one of my brothers from back in one of my past lives and eventhought I honestly has not spoke to him about past life or anything of that matter as I have been not really comfortable speaking up to people about my past life. But despite that he treats me sometimes like the little sister that I was in that life. He teases me with the glimt in his eye that reminds me so much about my brother back then and it has so often made me giggle at the thought. So I do believe one can truly meet and remember people one used to have so close or cared about very much in the past and eventhought maybe sometimes one is not reunited with ones loved ones. I do hope one gets to be able to rejoice seeing either one or more love ones from ones past.
Seems you completely understand me. Your name intrigues me, Ileana. That was the name of someone I knew in my past.
When I was in my early thirties, I'd taken some adult education classes in our local high school. I was at the beginning of my artist time, so I took the art class there. In the first class I'd met a woman I bonded with, and even though we had spent very little time together, and didn't have time for conversation because she had a large family, a very jealous husband, and a job, it was like we really didn't need to talk. I was shy, and she seemed to sense that, and became protective of me.
We'd been close for a short time when it became obvious that we were picking up on each others feelings. I'd be feeling bad, or not well, and she'd call and say she felt I was feeling whatever I'd been feeling. And I'd feel she was going through something bad, and then she'd tell me about it. A terrible fight with her husband; her son tore a ligament in his leg playing football, and so on.
We only had a year and a half together when her husband moved them to another state, she said to get her away from the few friends she'd made. He especially didn't like how close she felt to me. Even separated by states, we still picked up on each others feelings and though our letters learned we were still "in touch."
Early in the relationship I'd written a story about our past life together as twins, and in a letter from her after she'd settled into her new life, she'd written that she thought we had to have been twins. We were like twins in that I was the mouse, so to speak, and she was the outgoing, caring type. She was a few pounds heavier than me, although we were the same height, and both blond. I have no doubt at all we were twins in a previous life.
I'm new to this, how do you "know" when you cross paths with someone from the "past"?
For me there is usually an oddly strong feeling, attraction or repulsion, and a sense that this person is important to me without reason. Sometimes they don't feel it, too. There have always been relationships where the sense of importance in a connection was unequal (just look at famous people and fans, for example).
When it's mutual the relationship simply happens without much effort as if there was a long established pattern, positive or negative. Other times, I'll know things about their personality before I've had a chance to see it, and am proven right again and again (sometimes to my dismay when I didn't listen to warnings).
And, of course, there's always just asking one's gut. I've had a lot of small connections ... likely people I haven't been that connected to in the past, but enough to recognize each other. Sometimes others are very strongly attracted to me and I merely find them familiar. When I meditate I sometimes "see" how I was connected, or I'll have dreams about them in settings and situations from other eras and cultures.
And it's possible that sometimes we just don't know. When I don't have the confirmation of a memory or a sense that "we met before" I leave it open in my mind whether it's past life related or merely an agreement between lives to meet up. It isn't always necessary to know.
You know it when you feel it. You just do. It's different to feeling attracted or interested. It's like you just remember someone. Even though you have not seen them for a long time.
You just know....
Why do you ask????
