    I'm not sure how everyone else remembers their past lives. For me, it seems to come like a movie. I'm never quite myself interacting in the scene, but it doesn't really feel like I'm an outsider who's just watching them, either. In any event- sounds usually trigger recollections for me. The most recent was a creak of a wooden floor.

    Instantly, I was back on a wooden ship that made similar noises. I don't know the purpose, but I know it was connected to my early 1840s-sometime before the start of the 20th century life. I'm guessing it might've been something akin to a riverboat, but I can't say for certain. My mother, who was on the ship with me, hated it. I can remember one of my brothers telling us how awful it was to be on a boat, and having the feeling that he hammed up his own experience. I remember sitting down on the deck to write a letter and in a journal, and someone I know coming up behind me and startling me. I don't know who I was writing to, but I believe it was a friend of another one of my brothers, and having the feeling that whoever surprised me would have no problem informing my brother of that correspondence.

    A roundabout way of getting to my question, which was- does this happen to anyone else? How do you see your past life memories, if you see them at all?

    Thanks for reading, and please stay well.

    Most of mine come through meditation and they're usually first person. I can't see myself, but I can see what's around me.

    I did see one in a dream that was like watching a movie. It was first person for a while but my death scene wasn't.

    Sara, did you have a American Civil War lifetime? I was a Confederate soldier from the South. My brother was from Texas ( I most likely was too, but moved before the war began) and have memories of 1850’s Baltimore, Maryland.

    Ps. To answer your question mine come like a movie with all intense emotions.

    Mine seem to be 99% first person, when I'm actually 'there' within the scene, but very occasionally I've seen things as if on a screen, looking at myself within the scene.

    I see from the first perspective and sometimes changed perspective*. Often I separate a little from the first perspective, 30 or 50 cm.

    * Now that I think of it, that happens when I try to 'replay' a scene. Then I can hoover above a scene.

    If I actually SEE something, it's first-person, can be either with seeing the parts of my body (with body feelings then) or not (but still with a sense of "me" and "being there").

    First person memories I have are so heavy. But that’s because I never had the chance to heal those before I returned, so sometimes I feel exhausted afterwards.

    I get the whole thing... whatever emotions or physical feelings are attached to those memories, I know they’re ones I haven’t healed, but gosh, it feels so good to liberate myself of them afterwards..

    hi eva,

    yes, i did! that’s the lifetime this memory in particular is attached to. that lifetime has been the one that’s coming through the most recently. i was southern as well, though not so far as texas. i spent my life in georgia, save for a few brief trips elsewhere. i’d be interested to hear what you remember about baltimore, and the war. i think that by virtue of my sex, and my family being of some (however small) prominence, i was spared from seeing the real hardships of the war.

    hi klaud,

    that’s so interesting! i have very few scattered memories that are in first person, but they never seem to be of any real significance. the rest of memories play out pretty much as you described- i can never see myself (i hadn’t realized that until you said as much, so thank you for that!), but all around me is crystal clear.

    I have a friend who lived in Darien, Georgia during the Civil War. Was a Confederate soldier too.

    I wrote all my findings in this thread here about my Civil War lifetime. http://reincarnationforum.com/threads/american-civil-war-pl-notes-and-memories.8888/

    I only visited Baltimore for Lexington Markets and essential supplies, as I remember my house being on the outskirts of Baltimore (in modern times, we would class this as the suburbs not the country). I kept saying to my friend “Baltimore today, is not how I remember it to be..”

    I look forward to seeing your progress with this lifetime too.

    Hi! This is my first time posting.

    My recalls usually play out in first person scenes.

    There are a couple I remember clips of and two I‘ve remembered multiple vivid scenes from.

    The longest back was as an early human, hunter gather type deal. I just remember dying.

    The next was as a man during the time of ancient Rome. I was rich and would do anything for my family but was a constant philanderer.

    Another life as a pimp in the middle east.

    Then in the 1800’s as a wife, mother and midwife or some kind of medical professional in India. My family died and I remember living without them then just wanting to die too.

    And finally, as a young German soldier. I didn’t believe in their bullshit but I was afraid of losing my chance at a life with the person I loved. I followed orders till I couldn’t anymore. Ultimately I didn’t make it to the end of the war. I was executed in 1943 Belgium in the forest. I was shot in the gut. I remember what it feels like. The pain then the icy cold feeling and shivering that bridges on convulsing then a peaceful warm feeling slowly creeps up as the pain numbs. Lol I think I held on for too long because I didn’t want to die.

    Now I’m a black woman in the U.S. I always had trouble expressing myself. When ever I had to give public speeches I would start to shake, stutter then cry. But that didn’t stop me from becoming a high school teacher.

    All of my memories are first person and loaded with emotion. I don’t know if that’s due to causation or correlation???

    Strong emotional responses tend to validate that these are your own lives. Probably as you re-experience those things you feel the same emotions as were felt at the time - though with the benefit of hindsight you may also experience something new as you perhaps gain fresh insights into how each of these lives and events relate to one another, and to your present life.

    I have had dreams and a few meditation images come to mind. However, I am studying for Canadian citizenship and out of sheer curiosity, I took the Canadian citizenship practice test.
    I didn't study at all but I scored a high 90. I just knew the answers! Just seeing that 90 started to seek out this forum to give me some answers.
    Very spook city on the test!

    Was good to see that others have this experience too, when you can see yourself from the outside too, but you're still very close to yourself. Sometimes I think even if it's not you who manipulates it in a regression, it happens with a reason. Because all such scenes I've seen would be so hard to understand without knowing that it was "that" life. They were like, "hey, here's a 5 seconds long cut out from that life of yours from a random event, just look at it!"

    When I'm in first person it often feels like I'm "me", even though I wear - for example - a uniform, meet people I don't know at places I haven't seen in my actual life (or not in their current form). Sometimes I wonder how can we distinguish the current and the past "me" if it's the same soul. Even if I experience situatons and feelings (or even death) I haven't experienced in my current life yet, it's still a "me" feeling to me. Sometimes I have random perspective changes during the same scene but the reason why I still feel like it was me because it eventually switches back to first person.

    I think the way you distinguish it is how you feel. I often say to myself... “ that’s not something I would do, but seeing as I was in this situation, I did exactly what I would have done then....”

    I think we always feel that we are “us” whether it’s our past life self or us in this lifetime. I always feel comfortable when I am one of my past selves because effectively they are me..

    Crazy? No, I don't think so. If you have done something in a PL that makes you feel ashamed or even guilty, of course you wish that it could have been somebody else (or that it isn't memory, but imagination).
