A few years ago, I had a series of very vivid dreams all in the same night. The strongest one was this: I was a young adult in the late 1960's, 19 years old. I was at a party with my friends and overdosed on heroin. The strangest thing about this dream is that not only was it very realistic, but when I woke up, I recalled the detailed experience of dying from this overdose. When I awoke, I had no question in my mind this was memory of some sort, but it didn't make me feel afraid, only a little sad and regretful. Oddly enough, I've always had a very strong aversion to recreational drugs bordering on fearfulness. But the recollection of dying was so strange and vivid.... The same morning when I awoke, I also recalled - in less detail but still felt very real - that I lived in a clan in Ancient Ireland and that my now-husband was a cowboy in the Wild West who had been shot dead in the back (my husband has severe back pain the doctors haven't been able to properly treat - diagnosed as fibromyalgia). Not sure why I would also recall my husband's past life? But I definitely have long had a strong affinity to the ancient Insular Celts in Ireland and Scotland. I've been thinking of trying past life regression (self hypnosis) to see if these line up or if I can get more detail. Has anyone had past life dreams and then tried past life regression? Has anyone else experienced death like this in their dreams?
