    So I've been on this forum for a couple of days now,and I read everywhere about People vividly remembering their past lives.I also heard a lot about 3y olds remembering their full past lives.For some reason,I don't have any vivid memories of my past lives (I had 3 lives before this one.)Nor did I have any memories when I was a todler.Or at least,that's what I think.You see,I started remembering small piecces of my past lives at the age of 12.I mean,I don't think I can describe them as actual memories.More as verry strong emotions.

    It started with a movie I watched,what triggered something within me.Not much later after I watched that movie I saw a picture of myself from my second past life,and imideantly felt a verry strong gut feeling like:that's me.I later did some research on my past life self and found out that I kept a lot of the same personality traits/views/beliefs. I Found out who my parents,siblings and relatives where from that live,and everything just felt right.Also,I never really felt as if my current family was my real family.

    When I was a kid,I always thought I was adopted,so finnally al piecces felt togheter.That also kinda explains why I still refuse to give my parents a hug.Cause in my family from that life,there wasn't much emotional bonding going on between my parents and their children.So Maybe that's why I've always been so uncomfortable with doing things like that.Anyhow,I still didn't have any real memories.

    If Whoever is reading this doesn't know what I mean with "strong" emotions,I'll give a little example.So Whenever I see a picture of me and my siblings from that life,or just me,I start crying out of nowhere,and get a depressive episode,just bc I saw that picture.Also things like seeing historical footage from that time just makes me cry uncontrolably.Sometimes I don't even believe myself,and I get a little bit afraid that I'm making this all up.But then I get another depressive episode from just seeing my face in a picture and all my doubts are gone.

    But now I'm done explaining,here are some questions:Are there other people on this forum who also experience these strong emotions/got to know about their past lives after watching a specific movie?Or is it possible that I supposedly did have past life memories when I was a todler,but just forgot about them?(I red that somewhere.)

    What I do remember from when I was a todler is that I really wanted a dog.I was around 3 years old,and never actually had seen a dog in real life nor was able to know that it was called "a dog."But for some reason I really wanted one,so I made one out of paper and pretended that it was real.(sounds ridiculous,but I was 3,I didn't know any better).

    Turns out,me and my past life lover both loved dogs,and he gave me one for my 23th/24th birthday.The breed of the dog I had in my past life was a dachshund I believe,and the dog I made out of Paper kinda resembled one.I guess this is the end of this thread,I hope someone can help me out with my situation,cause I'm really confused.

    Hi, Vogue_1983!

    Strong emotions are very common, even if you don't have crisp memories of past lives. I'm sure many users of this forum have experienced something similar, including me. Before I started meditating, I had vague memories, situations in my mind and very strong feelings.

    Intuition is important, and if you feel that all those things that cause you strong emotions were part of past lives, your intuition may be right. However, I suggest a regression, self-hypnosis or meditation to have a clearer vision about your memories. So... Yes. It is possible to feel strong emotions when you listen, or see something in particular.

    I understand perfectly how you feel about not hugging your parents or feeling that maybe it's not necessary. In my past life my family was dysfunctional. I basically lived "happy" until my parents decided to divorce. I spent my childhood and adolescence wandering around many places and homes, while my parents had new families. I was a very expressive person physically. Now I am less expressive, and although my parents in my present life have given me a lot of love, I am not able to embrace or express my affection.

    About something that makes me feel strong emotions... Songs. Photographs. Documentaries. When I paint pictures or drawings I also feel these emotions. I remember when I was eight years old my cousin was a fan of a band and he used to watch documentaries of the band. He said "you're shaking, are you okay?" and I ran to my bed, closing my eyes. In the documentary they explained things about the death of a specific person. At that moment I had clear memories, but I started shaking uncontrollably. That's my personal experience.

    As I said, intuition is essential when you start having memories. I don't know specifically how I can help you, have you thought about getting a regression to past lives? Maybe you could remember more things.:)

    Thanks for your reply :)..I'ts Nice to know that what I'm experiencing is actually quite common among other people on this forum!And I've actually been thinking about getting a regression,but I'm not sure if it will actually work.I've red lots of articles about people describing their past life regression experience,and out of all these articles I've got the conclusion that I'ts maybe not for everybody.But hey,if I'll never try I'll never be actually able to know.

    I know this all too well. In my case it is music that sometimes triggers something. Emotions first and some kind of "sudden knowledge" or strong gut feeling that I have been there. There might be flashes, too or not. Or sometimes a spontaneous memory comes later. Not always, though.
    I don't remember whether I remembered PLs as a kid either (my parents didn't notice anything too odd, but they would agree that I was scared of many things and had a very vivid "imagination").
    You are not alone, Vogue.
    (And your avatar somehow reminds me of things from this life, when I was younger...)

    Thank you for that share. I got a former life while I was listening to music. The man who wrote the music was the first son of JS Bach, named Wilhelm Friedemann Bach. As I listened to the music I felt a strong sense of owning the music, and I got that this person was a former life of mine. It wasn't through a past-life regression. More a waking-state revelation that hit me powerfully.

    Even though I had memories when I was a little girl, I felt that I was the one who sang those songs, or saw images and something disturbed me in some way. It's like looking at yourself in front of a mirror, but in a much more complex way. You feel that person is you. Or in the eyes there's some indication of that. Even though many people claim to be famous, that unexplained feeling of nostalgia or instant memories is powerful.

    Back to the thread, Vogue, I agree with you. You should try to get a regression to past lives, just to experience it. Or you could practice meditation. It is something that can give you more security, specific memories or indications. However, having strong emotions when you see or hear something is an indication of... Something is happening! I wish you the best of luck and if you manage to discover something, you could share it in the forum.;)

    I have had the strong emotions happen to me.
    The first time I visited Hampton Court Palace,
    I hadn’t even reached the entrance gate when I was just overcome with strong tearful emotion and I had no explanation for it.

    But other than that I’ve not experienced it again yet.

    I didn't really remember past lives as a kid either. I had a few very brief flashes of things my toddler mind couldn't properly interpret, but over time they simply faded away. Put it right out of my head.

    It wasn't until I saw Gladiator that any of the actual memories started to surface. We watched it in a Latin class I was taking, and I couldn't shake the sinking feeling of dread. I felt almost physically ill watching parts of that movie and didn't really know why. I guessed it might have been a past life, but wasn't sure. Strangely enough, it wasn't until about a year later that I had an unusually vivid recollection of being brutally killed by a gladiator in front of a cheering crowd.

    I had a similar experience, actually. The first time I saw that movie, I started to get déja vu. Particularly during the shots where they looked up at the crowd from the arena floor. I remembered the adrenaline. I shook it off and joked that it was a past life memory, but this was before I actually believed in reincarnation. Years later, I picked up a more concrete memory of arena combat fighting a bear of all things.

    That's quite a coincidence! Potentially getting mauled by a bear sounds like a worse way to die honestly

    It would have been a terrible experience...I feel sorry for the bear.

    I am going through that too. There was one time when my mom's friend went to Germany. When she came home, she gave us a lot of german chocolates. It seems that I felt happy about the fact that the chocolates came from Germany, even though we always get imported chocolates like every 6 months to a year. I mean, other than the usual Toblerones, Snickers, and the like that I get, I already had chocolates from Saudi Arabia, Australia, and such. I just feel happiness whenever I get chocolates that were made in Germany, and I don't really understand why.

    There was one video in Youtube that I watched that pretty much started my path to finding out about the past. It was a interview from the son of a former Nazi leader. At the ending part, these words pretty much sparked the fire: "Don't trust us Germans."

    For the whole week, those words echoed in my head.

    And I cry uncontrollably when german guilt is brought up. I'm not German but I feel guilty as if I did it, and pretty much until now, I still can't understand why I feel guilty over something I never did. I actually felt like as if "had I gone crazy?"

    Just recently, we had a skit in our class and one of my classmates suggested the story to be kind of like the Holocaust, which made me very uncomfortable and made my hands sweaty. Our roles were the victims.

    I think I had a past life in WW2. There are just too many coincidences pointing to it and I'm trying to make sense of it, I know that I'm not making some fantasy or something because I know it's more than that. And I think I was enlisted in the army by mandate.

    But right now, everything is seemeingly about to repeat. As I contemplate about this, I just saw on TV that my country's government is planning to bring back ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) as mandatory and was aimed at senior high school which I currently am right now. My school is talking about it through short lunch time talks along with other pressing social issues in my country.

    Of course, all of us knew that once ROTC becomes mandatory, anyone is automatically enlisted in the army. I can only say that it is the one thing I dread the most about, because if one day the need for call to arms happens, I know that death might as well be knocking my door. Maybe right now it's just an idea of the House of Representatives in my country, but what if the senators agreed? There is a huge chance that if the senate allows it, the President will most likely sign it, because he has a very militaristic tendency. I wish this will not happen. I wish that the senators are not stupid because I don't want to die with holding a freaking gun again.

    That pretty much everything I'm feeling right now. Fear and guilt.

    This should not get into politics! But, as usual I can't keep my mouth shut.

    I grew up in a period when the USA was a great country. When I was a teenager Made-in-Japan was something to avoid while the warring countries rebuilt after WWII. Then Made-in-(other Asian countries) appeared at the low end while the USA workforce drifted to just doing 'a job' where workmanship was not much of a consideration and has led us to the point that products that say Made-in-America are down to a much lower position, all in my lifetime. We are now at a point where products are not replaced after twenty years because they are still better than what is currently available as new products - pride in workmanship is gone as we drift toward Socialism. We recently had one president who has been at war his entire terms, he is adored and received a Peace Prize at the beginning of his reign, let that sink in.

    Younger people have not experienced the greatness that was here in the 1950's so they have nothing to compare today with and select the path of the least resistance which leads to a Nanny-state while failed socialistic governments are in the news elsewhere right in front of them/us. Yeah, I miss the Great America of the past when Honor, Honesty, and pride in workmanship were common. The cycles continue!

    It was probably greater before I was born!

    Vogue_1983,

    Don't feel too bad about not having clear memories of your PL they will come in time so allow them to take there natural course of unveiling themselves to you. However having strong feelings about them is an indication that some are trying to surface into the conscious mind and present personality now being lived. Because as soul starts to evolve more it will be allowed to have small glimpses of lifetimes gone by. And trust me when I say this to you; you have had far more than just 3 lifetimes my dear. As the human race has been reincarnating on this planet for 10,000 years or more. Depending upon one's spiritual evolution and development at present.

    However there are some triggers than can evoke a memory to surface. One is traveling aboard to other countries and experiencing other cultures while there. This happen to me while visiting Scotland while at the isles of Skye Scotland. However that was not a very happy memory as I committed suicide in that lifetime over a love affair gone bad and thru myself off the cliff there. I had to end my visit to that place because I was so overwhelmed with too much sadness, despair and emotional pain that I became sick to my stomach and vomited right there. So I ask the party I was with to take me back to the hotel. The rest of the trip went ok! However at the time I did not know why I became so overwhelmed with emotion while there as I am a empath in this lifetime. It was only two years later thru a psychic friend of mine that I learned why as I was female in that lifetime, I am male in this one now.

    Certain smells can also be a trigger. In this lifetime fresh cut grass on a summers day reminds me of happy times during my childhood. However if I smell rosemary it takes me back to the middles ages. Not so much a clear memory as such but more of a feeling and knowing I was there. Music is another one. When I hear music in sung in Gaelic or Loxian it takes me back to Scotland and Ireland. My last LTR I had was with a man from London as I am gay in this lifetime. It was a 7 year long distance relationship. I was very drawn to this soul as I always felt there was a spiritual connection to him the day we met yet I did not know why. He would always call me Daddy as I was older than him. I did not mind calling him boy because in many ways he was a boy inside the man. I visited England many times while in the relationship. Met the family, friends ect… And considered moving over there. However something did not feel right. Later I learn he had a meth addiction. I told him this would be a deal breaker for me. So I gave him time to clean up his act. Well he tried but he needed professional help and did not want to change or get help. So I had to end the relationship back in 2018. My mom died the year before so now I was losing not only my mother who was my only family but my lover to drugs. I was truly going thru a dark night of soul period back then.

    While going thru the break up I heard (Wild Violet and Water knows the hidden heart by Enya. While listing to this during my crying sessions over the break up I had a aha moment. I knew this soul from Scotland. I did not know when but I had my answer. In that lifetime I was his (real Father) and he was my only son as his mother died giving birth to him. In that life he died young around the age of 15 due to an overdoes of drugs use while boating on a river. He fell off the boat and drown. I tried getting to him and pulled him out of the river but I was too late as he was already dead. I blamed myself for not getting there sooner. I never re-married in that lifetime after that and died a lonely man. Now I understood the father-son karmic connection with this soul and why I felt so protective of him. I also felt that his drug addiction follow him thru future lifetimes into this one as well. Yet again I still can't help him because this time the drug use as stronger than the love between us. After the break up we still love each other and told him I will always be there for him if he ever needed a friend. But until he comes to a point of wanting help there is not much I can do but go forward with my life.

    So my dear don't be too much in a hurry to knowing your PL. They will come when you are ready to know as soul. Just know you are eternal as soul and are older than the universe in which you live in. And that you are loved more than you will ever know.

    Peace and love. P.
