    Hello, I have come here knowing full well that I have lived before. In this life, I'm a working musician, journalist and author. Almost all my past life experiences involved the military. I have had two past life regression sessions with a very well respected psychic and friend, Nancy Orlen Weber, and one intense past life experience on the battlefield at Gettysburg.

    At age 8, I became obsessed with knights, armor, and particularly the Crusades. Nancy was able to take me back to that period of time to discover a past life as a military participant in the Crusades, but nothing more specific than that.

    About two years later, I became fixated on WWII aviation. Always a vociferous reader above my current grade level, I devoured every book I could about the subject, drew pictures of WWII planes, collected all the information I could, bought US war surplus items from the period, and identified strongly with that time period as well. It was almost as if I knew what life was like in the 1940's during the war years. About 17-18 years ago, I bought a used book detailing WWII aircraft nose art. There were hundreds of photos of decorated US aircraft, with paragraphs showing bombers primarily, many of which were lost on raids over Germany and other countries. I began carrying the book around with me and studying it every spare minute. It was beginning to disturb my life profoundly. I started dreaming about flying in a WWII bomber. It became so severe, I once again had a past life regression with Nancy, and during the session, we learned I was indeed a member of a B-17 bomber crew. My name was Steve, and I was lost on a mission in 1944. Since then, I have made peace with the subject. I will say, the first time I got into a B-17, I walked the entire length of the airplane from cockpit to tail, and when I got that 50 cal. Browning machine gun in my hands at the waist gunner position, I felt strangely at home. I have watched perhaps every single piece of WWII bomber combat footage, and every time I see a US bomber going down, I shudder, thinking about the loss of life.

    But the most dramatic experience I had occurred the first time I toured the Gettysburg battlefield in 1991. While doing the auto tour, I passed by the Wheatfield, the site of a terrible struggle on the second day of the battle. It was not a scheduled stop on the tour, but something inside told me to stop the car and get out, which I did. As I walked into the center of that field, a sense of horror overtook me. I began to shake violently. I could hear the rifle and pistol shots, and the sounds of battle. At that moment, I knew I'd been there before. I ran back to the car and held onto the fender to compose myself. The second time I went back to the Wheatfield about a year later, I began to weep, as the same feelings came over me. I instinctively knew something terrible had happened to me there in a past life.

    About a month after my first experience in Gettysburg, I met a woman at work who was new to the company. She shook my hand, but held onto it, and said, "Are you into the Civil War?" I answered yes, I am. She said, "You wore blue and got shot in the chest at Gettysburg." I was dumbstruck. I had never met or seen this woman before, and yet, she knew. I never saw or spoke to her again, as I left the company a few weeks later. I wish I could find her.

    I hesitate to tell people within my circle of family, friends and acquaintances about these experiences, as I have been met with skepticism, disbelief and scorn on several occasions.

    Since 1991, I have returned to Gettysburg, both alone and with family, many times, in fact, we are going back again in two weeks. I always visit the Wheatfield immediately after checking into our hotel, and there are times when I feel a very strong sense of dread and death, and other times, not so much. But every time I go back, I know there's a strong attraction to this one spot on the battlefield. My wife and I have contemplated relocating to the Gettysburg area after retirement. We're no longer tourists. I feel we belong there.

    Welcome Drumbob, Thank you very much for sharing your memories. I think you'll find this a welcoming and safe place to share.

    Have you read the book Someone Else's Yesterday, by Jeff Keene? He documents some of the most incredible details of a Civil War general. Jeff is a member here. I highly recommend the book, especially given the things you remember.

    Thanks for joining us. I look forward to reading more from you.

    Thank you for your welcoming reply. I knew I could tell my tale here without fear of rebuke. I have not read Jeff's book, but will search it out. Like many people, I have told others about what happened to me at Gettysburg, only to have them stare at me in disbelief, thinking I must have been crazy. A few people I know (including a musician I work with all the time), are totally unenlightened regarding spiritual matters, and have been openly dismissive. I keep my conversations with them on the surface level at all times.

    Drumbob, in his book he spoke of a very similar awakening experience, and if I'm not mistaken it was also was at Gettysburg. His name here on the forum is Stars3. Haven't seen him in a while, but he pops in occasionally. I encourage you to read it. Blessings, ~Tman

    HI DrumBomb.. Your memories are interesting.. The previous physical entity my spiritual self occupied was a US Marine fighter pilot I have some very vivid memories of that time Something that helped me a lot was identifying the exact plane I flew which may help you as well That may seem simple but it may not be... War planes were being modified a lot even simple modifications made by the maintenance crews So memories can reflect that when you are searching for a specific plane What helped me a lot was I search out every training film...every film I could find for WWII US marine fighter planes.. I knew I was a marine pilot because I have memories of sunning myself on the flight deck of a carrier with my buddies To cut a very long story short... I found the plane I flew a Grumman F4F Wildcat... It was a little confusing because there is also the Hellcat...there is plenty of confusion when matching an exact plane to a memory..you said you flew a B17.. spend some time looking at the training films etc.. you will see what I mean especially if they mean nothing to you When I saw the e training films the cockpit how you flew it etc ... I knew.. That lead me to search for the carrier .. Its more than likely in fact I'm sure it was the Enterprise I talk about this because I believe its important to you to get inside the plane you served on

    Jeff's book is very good. And, if you're ever in the Gettysburg vicinity again you may want to visit Antietam as well. They are about 45 minutes from each other.

    Another good book on Civil War past lives is "Echos from the Battlefield" by Barbara Lane. It is available on Amazon.

    I had a life as a Confederate soldier who died at Gettysburg and lost my life on the Triangular Field, not so far from where your Civil War self lost his life. I had an experience similar to yours on my first visit to Gettysburg. Near the vicinity of Devil's Den I found myself in what can best be described as the middle of a battle. I was in panic, calling out the name "Johnny". There was smoke and gunfire all around me. It lasted only a few seconds and was definitely a WTF moment. Other folks I know have had similar experiences.

    Two other fellows I know lost their lives on The Wheatfield the same day you did. They were South Carolinians in that lifetime and members of the same unit.

    Trust me, you are NOT crazy.

    I know it was a B-17, and I have a strong tie to the 8th Air Force, which makes sense, as the 8th took the brunt of losses bombing targets in the European Theater. Up to now, I've been fairly satisfied knowing the little information I have about my WWII experiences, but would like to dig further to find out my full name and the story behind who I was. Are the training films you mentioned available on You Tube?

    As to my CW activity, I started reading a book specifically about the Wheatfield battle, but had trouble getting through it and never completed it for some reason. I don't know why.

    Hi On you tube I searched flying instructions for WWII B17 There is plenty there...If this is real they should spark some memories..I found they took me back in time not just about the planes but how they were filmed and narrated .. I'm not sure its a good idea finding out who you were.. If you know an approximate time when you were killed there are extensive records of deaths of airman and air crew killed during WWII.... Feeling a close tie to 8th Air Force does not necessarily mean you were a member Maybe a close friend or even a brother who you were very close to is the Steve you talk about.. If possible you need as many of your own memories as possible the films I'm sure will help
