Hello everybody, new guy here. I've been reading the forum for a while now, and decided to finally post something. I know very few people in my life with whom I can discuss reincarnation seriously. It's a topic that is very important to me, and I enjoy talking about it, but most people I know dismiss it as something made up. I first became aware that I may have had past lives, when I was in high school. I was at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC and was in their section on WWI aviation. I remember seeing the Albatros DV, a German biplane, that was on display there and suddenly thinking to myself, oh I've been in one of those. I also noticed that the German uniforms seemed really familiar to me and I felt like I had worn one. Everything about WWI German aviation felt so familiar and almost like home to me. At the time I didn't really think to look too much more into it, and eventually as time went on I became Catholic (to make it easier to marry my wife in the Catholic church) and started to convince myself that reincarnation was not true because it didn't fit with Catholic doctrine. In the last few years I've come back to a belief in reincarnation, and have focused on trying to figure out who I was in WWI. Unfortunately I don't seem to have any concrete memories, just feelings and intuitions. I knew that I was German, flew an Albatros, most likely one that was painted black, had shot down a few enemy planes, but no more than 5, and was either killed in the war or survived but did not live to see Nazi Germany as I feel no connection to that time. After months and months of research I came across a photo of a pilot and it just clicked in my head, that's me. His name was Joachim von Bertrab and he flew a black Albatros, with a comet insignia painted on the side. And when I saw the image of the plane I felt like I recognized it as my plane. He shot down 5 enemy planes before being shot down himself in 1917 by British ace Edward Mannock and was taken prisoner for the remainder of the war. Von Bertrab died in 1922 in a plane crash. A lot of these facts seem to fit my intuitions pretty well. The only thing is, I wish I had some actual memories to confirm more solidly that I was von Bertrab. I've never had any dreams or visions and when I've tried self regression nothing happens. I have had visions of dreams about other lives though. I did have a dream about being an enslaved black man in my 50s or 60s being told to do some gardening in front of a plantation house. And I had a bizarre, between sleep and awake vision of being in a crowd of people that were being talked to by some higher up Roman official who was surrounded by soldiers. We were all scared of whatever he was telling us. And I still felt the fear as I came out of the vision. Anyway I would appreciate any thoughts that anyone has on what I've said.
