    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.
