I always since a child had a fear of hot air balloons, I remember my mother taking me to see one as a small child and I was terrified of it. when I was with my first husband his parents brought me a ticket to fly on one and I had a terrible nightmare of falling from the balloon, eventually I had to cancel the trip I just couldn't go on it. I have also had a very vivid dream of floating at night over france at night about twenty years ago. I also have dreams of napoleon, I started to research hot air balloon deaths after listening to a youtube video on reincarnation and discovered a woman called Sophie Blanchard who was a balloonist. Who performed for Napolean and also died in a hot air balloon crash. She also was born with the same name as me, I am Magdalene Maria and she was born Marie Madeleine. My mother was going to call me Madeleine but changed it to Magdalene at the last minute, I also have a french surname which I inherited from my step grandfather. I think I have lived another life since then and before but I was quite shocked to read this. I also felt kind of at peace after digesting it. Like something shifted. My two sons have also had past lives. My middle son as a child age 6 described being on a street and a car pulled up and a man got out and shot him, It sounded like a gang style shooting. He described tall sky scraper buildings, He also said that each time he was born he would get naughtier which i interpreted as having more challenges to deal with. My younger son when he was little we were walking along on the road to school. He pointed to a ruin, He said to me you used to live there when it was all clean a long long long long time ago. It was a small scottish cottage that was in ruins. An old crofter style cottage. I asked him to describe it and he said it was new and had a roof. I wish I had asked more questions but I was shocked and only had a hundred yards to walk to the school. I have past life memories of living on this island which is why I moved there but I had never mentioned this to my son. he was 5 at the time.
