Due to the COVID-19 Virus outbreak and travel restrictions between Canada and Europe, I won't be able to visit Austria in June 2020 as planned. 2021?
I believe in the reincarnation of the soul.
I am following this thread and it gives me excitement in every detail you are sending here. Wishing you all the best for this year. Please do keep us posted.

I was watching “Sissi- The Young Empress” I just wondered how it added up to what you knew Ministar. Have you ever seen it?

If you are going to Vienna in 2022, I shall be there too for a few days to explore Linz and the Alps.

Yes Eva, it will be a better world then and one to look forward to. No, I haven't seen "Sissi-The Young Empress" but thank you for the info. Travel may be possible in 2022. A lot of people are hoping for it.

As Empress Elisabeth was an amazing equestrian and loved horses all of her life, I am also back in the saddle again. In this lifetime I started riding at age 4 and since discovering Sisi I have spent the past six months rediscovering my passion for it.

Yes, we hope it will be a better world then.

I watched both parts of the film about Sissi, and I gathered just from the first film that Sissi was a very headstrong and bold girl, but none the less a very good film portrayal.

I will want to view this film about Empress Elisabeth. Talk about a headstrong and daredevil personality! That has been the theme for this life also. I carry the scars. Sometimes taking chances becomes almost a suicidal impulse as it was with Sissi, especially after she lost Rudolf and this is a subconscious tendency that follows one from lifetime to lifetime as is the wandering.

Just out of interest mini, I know you seperate sisi and yourself from how you have written in here.
Im curious, do you think the sisi "I" is the same as the mini "I" in that your consciousness had access to both people and the only difference is life experience which makes the characters different?
Because my family chose the nickname for me at a very young age, they were somehow aware subconsciously possibly?

Greetings,
I came across this thread by chance, and I have to say everything I read made me dumbfounded. I'd love to share the story of my mother, whom we've always believed to be the reincarnation of Sisi.

My mother is Czech who moved to Damascus at the age of 12 when my grandfather started a business of importing sewing machines into Syria. She was visiting the famous omayad mosque one day, and a girl of 4 years old approached her and bowed, saying "You walk like an empress". She used the word empress and not Queen, which was a big surprise to my grandfather that a mere child knew such word.

My grandfather's trade flourished and they settled in Damascus, and years forward mom was studying in university. She met my father, whom was so obsessed with the way she walked that he used to come early and hide from afar to see her walk. He always said she felt very regal and royal.

And mom always asked him never to stab her in the back. He used to think it means betraying her with another woman, but mom insisted she meant it literally. It was so weird to dad that mom would ask him specifically not to stab her with a knife. In their marriage days, she'd often wake up in the middle of the night, and feel sharp pain where (we later found out) sisi suffered the stab wound.

Once, she and father watched a black and white movie about the life of SiSi...that's when father, who never took reincarnation seriously, was sure these similarities mom had with Sisi weren't a coincidence. Especially at her murder scene...

She was also obsessed with dresses tight at the torso with flowing skirts. And even red hair, she was really obsessed with growing her hair and dying it in henna, which was something Sisi loved. The horses too...but more importantly (and the point idk how to talk about) is Rudolf.

My mom was always loved by children...she's lovely, and always played with us, told us stories, and invented scenerios for role playing. She often not only took care of me, but also my 3 cousins who had a working mom.
My youngest cousin, however, was a very hard child to deal with. As a baby, she used to avoid my mom, and seek attention form everyone else... but when no one was looking, she seeked her love more than she did from everyone else. As she learnt speech, she kept talking abt killing herself...that was a never ending obsession of hers.
My aunt left the country with her children for many years, and when they came back and reconnected with us, my cousin was already an adult who had so many questions.
She wanted to know her past life, because she's sure she's being punished for things in the past. She keeps wanting to kill herself, but she has a feeling she already did it and it'll be worst next time. So mom (who's doubting she's Rudolf) asked her what can she speculate about her past life...
She said, that based on feelings and some dreams she had, she was a man of importance, in a place that spoke German, and that she doesn't believe she lived past early thirties.
There's more details regarding my cousin, and even things I'm told about mom. The whole thing is making me very confused and shaky, so excuse my not-so-coherent writing.

However, it's really curious that two people would share the same connection to someone. It makes me wonder whether you two are the same soul reincarnated in different bodies....or (and that's a frightening possibility) is whether we can admire or obsess someone in a past life to the extent the two identities overlap?
I would really love to hear your opinion and feelings about this. I really have no idea why I came to this forum on this day to see this post refreshed from years ago. So I think there should be a meaning here.

Thank you for reading so far

Empress of Austria would not have been an easy job for a Bavarian girl as headstrong and as bold as Sisi. How do you feel towards Hungary? I have read that Sisi was also Queen of Hungary and apparently liked Budapest.

Hello Julez,

I hope you are enjoying my posts on Empress Elisabeth over the years and thank you for your comments. You just enlightened me and gave me another clue to solving this mystery when you mentioned henna. I didn't know that Sisi used henna to dye her hair but for the past several years I have been using henna consistently to dye MY hair and I didn't know why I was so hung up about my hair and appearance.

There have been other people on this forum who think they were Empress Elisabeth and I am open minded to other points of view certainly. It seems to me that when we move on from a past life we carry the talents, attitudes and especially habits, however mundane and subconscious they might be. Investigating Sisi has brought me back to own my childhood days of galloping horseback through the woods which must have been repeated from Sisi's own childhood days of riding through the forests. I am now just getting back in the saddle after all these years away from it and really enjoying it once more. It has made me so happy. At the same time I forge ahead with the writing and am now in the process of publishing a children's picture book in 2021 quite aware that Sisi had writing ambitions which I hope I am fulfilling in this lifetime.

I am not sure about your mother's connection to Sisi and your cousin's connection to Rudolf as I have been investigating the connection between Rudolf and my son. My son now, this year, finally has his "kingdom" that he may have lost as Rudolf as he has taken over a position this year which gives him "his empire" figuratively speaking. Let's continue to put the pieces of the puzzle together.

Rebellious, yes. Right from the start. In this lifetime I resented my own father's wealth (which came from a business he ran) and stubbornly refused to enjoy "the big house" he built that I grew up in as a child, especially in view of the fact that the neighbourhood surrounding was farmland and the people (farm people). He also built a cabin on a private lake located in the wilderness where we spent summers. In that lake there was a deserted island which I compare to Rose island in Lake Starnberg although a smaller version. We often spoke of building on that island.

At the time it seemed that there were "too many rules" and a coldness in that household that to this day I shy away from. Could this be history repeating itself as Sisi rebelled against becoming Empress of Austria? And so I jumped on horseback and rode through the wilderness over the property to escape from it all. Could this parallel Sisi in Germany growing up on horseback and riding over her father's property near Possi?

There is also a similarity between her childhood home being located near Lake Starnberg and our house also being located by a lake. We both enjoyed nature and swimming in lakes. I grew up in Ontario, Canada. As far as Hungary is concerned, I have adopted the same attitude in this lifetime towards Newfoundland in Canada - a different culture and background than my own as I was born in Ontario. I submerged myself in the "Newfie" culture because it seemed less constrained by rules and regulations and simpler than Ontario. Many of my connections today still are from Newfoundland as Sisi's were from Hungary. The theme is the same - a simpler culture, peasant folk, absence of rules and restrictions in the culture. Yes, I see this tendency. I have yet to visit Hungary. It will be interesting to see what transpires when I do. Photo of what we used to call "the big house" today. It has been altered somewhat and changed hands. I still visit whenever I can.

Moving forward with Sisi's ambitions as a writer which are also my own - my children's book "The Leprechaun Who Was Not a Mouse" publishing date September 7, 2021. One script placed in Page Awards Contest twice 2019 and 2021. "Jimi's Last Poem" can be viewed on Vocal Media as well as "Jimi's Message" (From Beyond the Grave".

So far, Jimi's Last Poem has garnered 37 reads so far as the most popular piece. As these are Jimi's words via automatic writing it seems that Jimi hasn't lost his popularity with the people even after his death!

Vocal.media has published Parts One and Two of my story "Searching For Sisi" that I am writing which will eventually comprise my book "Searching For Sisi" for those of you following my research into the reincarnation of Empress Elisabeth of Austria. I am making no conclusions but letting the story speak for itself. Part of the story will be fictional (Empress Elisabeth's portion) but part of the story will be factual (as my memoir) and they will alternate between the two and will be ongoing.

Hi Mini,

I read and enjoyed! I hope there is more to come.

Cordially,
S&S
Thanks Sea And Sky! Glad you enjoyed this as much as I am enjoying writing it. It's a complex and interesting story with many twists and turns but I think I may have put some of the pieces of the puzzle together - seems rather amazing in its co-incidences.

PS--I especially like the continuity of the poetic impulse and what it revealed as a thread running between and through lifetimes. Likewise, the similarities of personality manifesting in very different external circumstances and times. I think that I have some of these same things going on, though I have no (or very few and indistinct) PL memories.

Hi Mini,

I really enjoyed this Youtube. It features the conversion of paintings to "real life" technology, allowing it to show some fairly realistic images of Sisi et al. Plus, it gives a short summary of her life and interests. I found the details of how they took her children from her to raise very sad as were many other aspects of her life after marriage. However, she is a very notable and "before her time" character, and definitely worth knowing about for someone like me (who did not know about her before you brought started writing about this lifetime).

Cordially,
S&S

Recently I was in touch with well-known psychic Brian Stalin who advised me that there is another life that I lived that I should know about as Empress Elisabeth of Austria. I have never been interested in Austria and certainly don't claim to be royalty, but as we compared the two photos side by side, I had to admit that there was a striking resemblance. As I started to read about Empress Elisabeth, there were some interesting similarities between us - her ability as a horsewoman (my childhood spent in the countryside horseback riding in Ontario, Canada), her love of solo travel (my tendency to travel solo seeking adventure), her habit of leaving hubby at home and travelling without him, (also my habit), her interest in and ability to write poetry (my own published book and poems), her tragic end by stabbing and my own near tragic end the same way, earlier in this life. I have to admit that Brian Stalin may have something here. I continue to be intrigued in my investigation into the past, and the possibility that I am Empress Elisabeth of Austria reincarnated. I haven't been to Austria yet. This lifetime may have faded to innate habits and tendencies more than vivid memories. I have kept the poems that I wrote as a teenager in the 1960's and they are very similar to hers. I will publish them on this page so that you might judge for yourself.

I admit that mostly of time returned peoples have physical resemblance with their old egoes and parallel lives.
i not know if is truly rebirth cause you miss memories of austria, or if is simple the fact that history is cyclical, or maybe time itself is cyclical.
Should be interesting to give a look to the birth chart sinastry between you and Empress Austria. for what i know, if the PL conclused with naturally death, the sun and moon of birth chart should be into the same sign - aspect of previous death chart. is the previous life instead end with violence death before the destiny of a person is completed, the next life sun and moon are mirrored.

Hi Mini,

I'm drawn to astrology to some degree, but not a practitioner. However, I find this interesting. We had someone at one point that posted a theory that people progressed through the signs life-to-life (forward or backward--I can't remember). I found this interesting, but a bit contrary to my thinking. I.e., if we are characterized, at least in part, by a bundle of traits that are continually being refined and transmuted during the process, it seems that any indicators of such traits (astrology?) would also reflect these gradual changes. So, I was not sure this could fit into such a mechanistic scheme.

Of course, this doesn't exclude sudden leaps and jumps in the indicators from time-to-time. Some lifetimes are probably going to be more revolutionary in terms of progress. But, usually, a more gradual change. In which case, your findings in this area would be very meaningful indeed.

Well, just my rather tentative "take" on the matter.

Cordially,
S&S
Depends, James Houston - Leiningar case have the sun moon \ mirrored.
anna frank \ karen case they are both of gemini, but moon is mirrored.
mostly of time lunar nodes should be conjunction or mirrored. i am not a professional astrologoer, but i love this discipline and i am again studying and searching PL cases to check with astral charts.
i am a little more expert respect of some years ago when i reached this forum, but sure i'm not a professional, also if i use sabian symbols for help me with the lectures.

Well astrology is one of those areas where people are free to choose what to believe. Personally I don't think astrology has any value. I recall years ago when biorhythms were a popular fascination. I actually wrote a computer program to calculate the cycles for a person based on a birth date. I now consider that a fun activity but not a productive one. At any rate, for reincarnation and past-life research we need something more solid and substantial to base our views upon. Verification of memories against the historical record for example. Let's not lose our way with ideas which cannot be substantiated.

Totally Agree with you. The scientific verification of claims and memories spontaneus of reincarnated peoples is the best way for investigate to the phenomeum.
Personally, i prefear the word returned people, cause reincarnation implicate the change of body, when i guess instead a person is more recreated and regenerated that converted into another.

Biorhytm are useful,personally sometime i ask myself if should be possible to creae also a biorhytm graphic about all planets and not just sun, moon and mercury.
i remember the day i have to minimal values all the neergy of sun-moon-mercury. these day i feel myself very weak, fuzzy, depressed and stunned.
so something of true about astral energy i guess should be.
about instead the planet influences on life. i guess can be consdieration by the poin of influence of electromagnetical fields or something like that.
but obvious, human mind and free will is more determinant.
about the meaning and value of a planet, i agree that astrology need to be more scientifically accurated, th unique way for do that, is collect all the casistic of millenariam histoical events between epheremis, planet positions and events that happen into history, or psycological pattern common between persons that have the same configuration.
personally i never get fault of astrology,but that's my personal opinion and my personal events.
i have a very bad mars influence on my birth chart.
the years when i had solar revolution with square aspects of mars to sun-mercury and to jupiter-uranus, well, first day i risked my life for a sepsi caused by e. coli. the next year i did surgery on leg with blood emorragy and transfusions after a trauma for a domestical accident (i fail on bathroom and hit my knee against the bidet, so i broke a little arteria. mars rules blood and uranus accident. mars+uranus = surgery. they was related to sagittarius , so legs. )
another stuff?
on my VI house, (works and heal), i have as sabian symbol "dental works".
mars enter on my VI house. the same day... when i was eating a molar touth is broken. now i have again teethache and i need to go to dentist thursday for make a devitalitizaion, i fear.
i have a genetical syndrome, the enler danlos syndrome, and my ascendent is on the gemini sabian symbol of the "little hungry bird" . i checked more birth chart of peoples with enler danlos syndrome and this symbols occurs frequently.
the singer sia foster have it on mars.
another guy have it on XII house (tryies and challenge of life)
so, something of true there is. but it require a casistic and serious statistic study.
obvious any one is unique and not all Virgo peoples acts like a vigo, not all scorpio peoples act like a scorpio. they are just archethype and human mind is much more complex.
a person is the addiction of his soul, is genes, all his planest influences and aspects, his chooses, the enviroment of his life, his culture, his family education, his childhood experiences.

that's the motivation cause i look to the charts of reborn peoples. i am looking for common patterns, for check if they have the same potential of should be involved the same soul, or why they have remembers. (moon should be involved into memory)
for what i know there is ever some special involvement of moon, sun, jupiter, saturn and lunar nodes.
there is also the fact that a birth chart get some clue about informations on the past lives of a person.
jupiter means the skills aquired on past lives. saturn the debt to pay and fix, south node the previous life information, node north the direction of this life and his meaning, XII house is the soul house and have meaning about all the pasted incarnation experiences.
honestly, i can tell that people can ignore with happyness all the garbage of horoscope wrote into magazines and papers.
they consider only the planetary position, so they are very very very generic.
but the events of life are related to the positions of planet in relation of the aspect of planet and the energy flows and exchange between a person and the world.
basically, birth chart is the mirror of a person, transit chart is the mirror of the world events.
that's mostly all to know.
the good news is that's is not fatalistic and there is ever free will.
astrology can only show the potentiality of a person, all his problem and all his talents and skills. what he do of his life, and what he begin and belief depend only from the chooses. universe simply take consideraion of the chooses.
so, if someone does A, happens A, if does B, happens B.
is not a fatalistic and rigid conceptions.
sure, i would avoid my heal troubles and the dentist if years ago i
Not having neglected to stop my oral care as I should have. now paid. :C
Mars is just a trigger, mercury a transceiver, jupiter an amplificator, saturn a constrictor, uranus a randomizer, the sun an energy beam and the moon a mirror.
what's happens depend by human chooses.

Hi Cyrus,

You're right. She wasn't a great scientist or writer or etc. However, I found her to be remarkably "independent" as time went on. Likewise, I found her interest in cultivating her own fitness and athleticism across the course of her lifetime to be extremely modern. The foregoing are not earth-shaking characteristics, and they could be argued to be "selfish". Nonetheless, for a woman, they certainly make her "before her time".

Whether this is "good" or not may be arguable, but I still like her and her determination to be herself (even though it took her awhile to do so).

The foregoing explanations do not, however, have that much to do with the fact that I "like" her. As is true in many cases, I just seem to "like" someone, then look for reasons why I like the person afterwards. o_O She falls into that category. :rolleyes:

Cordially,
S&S
