    I know we have a few with fpl & afew who suspect the possibilty of.
    Just afew questions on the subject.

    1. Had you heard of the name of your pl before you knew you'd been that person?

    2. Did you have an interest in their line of work/way of life/country or era they lived in prior to researching?

    3. Was there any one moment that made you believe you'd lived that life or a series of evidence/memories?

    4. How did you feel when you worked it out?

    I think most of us must have had at least one life with some promenence. It would give us the broad spectrum needed to experience life different ways.
    So makes sense.

    Many thanks:D

    1. Had you heard of the name of your pl before you knew you'd been that person?


    No


    2. Did you have an interest in their line of work/way of life/country or era they lived in prior to researching?





    Yes and that makes my answer to the first question more interesting. I had a huge interest in Chinese culture and in the era, however I never once encountered anything relating to my past life, even though it should have been relatively easy.


    I think for me at least, this was part of my life plan, to not know about it until I reached a certain point in my life.


    3. Was there any one moment that made you believe you'd lived that life or a series of evidence/memories?


    I can't site one specific moment when I knew I had found my past life. People speak of "blocks" or memories being purposefully clouded and i think that happened to me.


    Despite being at the point where I was supposed to learn about my past life, it took a while for these blocks or imposed amnesia to wear off, despite having researched a year or so.


    For me, it was more the facts. I've only had one specific memory related to that past life that I was able to verify, but out of everything I've learned, what triggered the recognition was our birthdates. They're the same and very important to me and for whatever reason that is, it was the key. A second part of that though was not wanting to admit to myself that my friend in this life was also my husband in my last life.


    After that, I felt a huge amount of grief. For several months, I felt disconnected and had dreams of old photos and houses. I'm glad it's passed, but the vividness of letting out pent up feelings and grief is what convinced me at first, and then finding so many facts and other things is what gave me confidence about it.


    4. How did you feel when you worked it out?


    I feel fine now.. :D But I kind of answered that in the above question.

    Thanks for that tortoro, much appreciated.


    I imagine learning a friend was your partner in a pl would be difficult! Also dependant how good or bad that pl relationship was.


    Probably why we're not meant to remember.cover face


    I had affairs with two of my in laws in different pl's-and i wonder why they give me a hard time now-LOL

    1. Had you heard of the name of your pl before you knew you'd been that person? (No I had not.)


    2. Did you have an interest in their line of work/way of life/country or era they lived in prior to researching? (Yes very much so)


    3. Was there any one moment that made you believe you'd lived that life or a series of evidence/memories? (I have had many memories that have lead me to know who I was in the past. I have tons of evidence.)


    4. How did you feel when you worked it out? (Surprised and amazed. Not because of the identity. I never oohed and ahhed over the "famous" identity. More I was just happy I discovered another life.)

    Famous "Things"...


    Hello All,


    I haven't remembered being a famous person, but I do have memories of working on a very famous thing...The Bayeux Tapestry...


    1. Had you heard of the name of your pl before you knew you'd been that person?


    "No...In America learning other countries history is very minimal, I had never heard of 'The Bayeux Tapestry' until, while traveling to France, my husband and I happened to be in the area. There was a subconscious pulling that is hard to explain...we visited the museum where the tapestry is on display, and that was the beginning of putting together things from my childhood that I had remembered...but had no explanation for..."


    2. Did you have an interest in their line of work/way of life/country or era they lived in prior to researching?


    "Yes...needle work was very easy for me, and learning languages too...and when I was very young I sang songs in French...my mother said she never understood why..."


    3. Was there any one moment that made you believe you'd lived that life or a series of evidence/memories?


    "For me it was finding the figure on the tapestry that I had drawn as a child over and over again...I drew this figure up into my teenage years. Then remembering where the tapestry had been made and actually going there...it was amazing!! My past life came back to me in floods...I have been almost able to remember this life from beginning to end, without hypnotherapy."


    4. How did you feel when you worked it out?


    "I felt very grateful...maybe a funny word to describe my feelings, but to trust your feelings...to trust that the soul continues...that "what" you are remains... and grows and learns...I am grateful for this knowledge! "

    1. Yes I'd heard of him. He was mentioned in history in school. Although that's all I knew about him. A film about him came out when I was eighteen. All I thought then really was that I would have been on the anti treaty side during the civil war. I was fairly immovable in my youth. ( my PL self was on the pro treaty side during the civil war ). I didn't give him much thought after that.

    2. I was always interested in the military and I always regretted not asking my grandparents what it was like growing up during the war of independence and the civil war ( when my PL self lived ). I was young when they died so I hadn't thought to ask them at the time.

    3. I had to make the same choice in my current life as in my PL. I also displayed the same talents as him in areas I hadnt studied in in my current life. I also realised that when my back was against the wall I behaved exactly the same way as him. I also came to understand his compromise on the treaty because of the compromise I had to make in my current life.

    After all of that something inside me kept telling me to visit his grave. I didn't though, not until I remembered that I was him.

    I then had PL flashbacks 9 months later. I remembered looking at the facade of the GPO in 1916 from the inside so I knew that I had been there. Then I started having memories from the civil war period. I remembered addressing crowds and briefing my men and such. Eventually I had so many memories it was confirmed for me that I was him. It helped that some in my soul group were known to me in that life. It helped narrow down the 'cast of characters' enough that I knew that I was him.

    4. I felt great at the time. I'd had a misspent youth so when I was protecting my love I used to call myself 'the knight in shyte covered armour'. Finding out that I was this lionised hero made me feel like all of my sins had been wiped clean. Of course life lessons knocked that out of me.

    1. Had you heard of the name of your pl before you knew you'd been that person?

    Only shortly before, as this is a part of history not normally covered in my country.

    2. Did you have an interest in their line of work/way of life/country or era they lived in prior to researching?

    I always had interest in achieving animal rights/human rights/human living-working conditions. Plus this time around I'm invested in LGBTQ+ rights, although back then I wasn't aware that there were any rights to be had in that regard.
    Also I am an artist specializing in nature, which prompts my s/o to call me 'nature gay', so there is that, too.

    3. Was there any one moment that made you believe you'd lived that life or a series of evidence/memories?

    Over the years I've slowly collected memories that couldn't be tied to any other life I remember, yet had an overarching theme/mood, which made me suspect they belonged to the same person. And then I read a biography by chance (horrendously poorly written and glaringly inaccurate at times, by the way) and found several of the memories described there.

    4. How did you feel when you worked it out?

    My first reaction was "well ****", because at that point I knew enough to realize that this had not been a happy life, and whatever new memories would resurface afterwards had a good chance of not being happy either.

    1. Had you heard of the name of your pl before you knew you'd been that person?

    Yes, he 's a fairly known painter, especially in France.

    2. Did you have an interest in their line of work/way of life/country or era they lived in prior to researching?

    I love drawing since I was very young. Now I'm a comics artist. And in my "famous" past life I was a painter.

    3. Was there any one moment that made you believe you'd lived that life or a series of evidence/memories?

    Never before would I have thought I lived that life. I knew his name but nothing else about his life or career. Then I made a regression and saw me write his signature on the lower right of a painting, in addition to other moments of his life.

    4. How did you feel when you worked it out?

    I was amazed... and then I went into books to learn more about this man, as I didn't knew anything except his name. Now I know a lot more, as I made other regressions. I found things you can read in biographies, and other things that are not.

    Yes, Just a quick glance of the name and it felt familiar to me

    1. Yes. I had seen and heard my name.

    2. Yes.

    3. Yes. When I had a memory that undoubtedly linked me to him/me.

    4. Happy to find myself.

    1. Had you heard of the name of your pl before you knew you'd been that person?
    No - I'm not from the United States fortunately and had never come across the name, until after I figured it out myself.

    2. Did you have an interest in their line of work/way of life/country or era they lived in prior to researching?
    Sadly, I had my first memory when I was 8 years old, so I was much influenced. My passion, however, is much the same as the life before, so I don't know if that's been an influence or just natural. I'm still much interested in economy and politics - but I've promised my s/o to never join politics again (so far, it's always resulted in my death, so. Yeah.)

    3. Was there any one moment that made you believe you'd lived that life or a series of evidence/memories?
    Um - a series of evidence. So many memories. I read this biography which - though it had some glaring inaccuracies - did make me feel more firm in my belief in who I was, but I never questioned it. It's been as normal to me, having been that person, as knowing that the earth is round.

    4. How did you feel when you worked it out?
    Both proud and afraid - that PL did not have the best of lives, however famous I might've been, and that didn't exactly cheer me up much haha

    1. Yes, but I can't recall when. It's like I always knew who he was. I also have this memory of seeing his picture on Tv at a very young age. Which "very young age" could also mean before I was born because the setting where the Tv was doesn't correspond to anything in this life. Or maybe my mind made it up, but it's been in my brain for a long time.

    2- I did have an interest in the era, overall line of work and country, prior to research. However, I really didn't know anything about him, just that he existed.

    3- Not ONE moment in particular. I was just really in tune with reincarnation between 2006-2008 and I remembered a lot. Eventually with all the pieces together it's a bit hard to deny. Having a shared recollection of an unknown event with someone else sort of closed the deal a bit.

    4- Weird, I still feel weird if I think about it. Creeped out and trapped in a claustrophobic time tunnel. Why? Probably because there's pictures, it's looking at yourself in a mirror you are not supposed to see, like two dimensions colliding.

    1. Had you heard of the name of your pl before you knew you'd been that person?
    No, not more then my middle name is similiar, but no I had not heard that name before.

    2. Did you have an interest in their line of work/way of life/country or era they lived in prior to researching?
    Well my dad got a opportunity to work in the Romania and I worked with a volunteer family that was from Romania, but had not heard much about the country before, nor did I look it up, most of all it is a chain of reactions and things that happened. As for the nursery work and social work she did, that I did have. As well as she was a girl guide I been a girl scout since I was 9 years old. Being fond of royalties I been since I was little and believed in a monarchy as a strong foundation for a country I have since I was young. But also been attractive to the Edwardian era in general.

    3. Was there any one moment that made you believe you'd lived that life or a series of evidence/memories?
    Well it was a chain or reaction, all from a photo I saw when I was younger in my history book, to a dream that plagued me for years between the age of 7-10 and then the people I recognised when talking with them or seeing their face in a picture that I stumbled upon. The scenes that sometimes came up either happy or sad ones. And the way I always felt I wanted to dress when I was younger, my mother found me hopeless when it came to clothes shopping, because I am really is a very girl girl when it comes to clothes, I even as kid could dress in long stocking, dress and a shirt over during the summer times. If I can pick I always wear dresses or skirts that are knee-length or longer.

    4. How did you feel when you worked it out?
    Happy and lots of emotions came over me, things that had puzzled me for years took another turn and turned more happier, but also the emotions and longing for the people that I back then called family. The fact that I socialised with cousins from back then and most of all puzzled all my feelings and such that occurred in the years around the Great war and such, memories that was dimmed and such. But also memories of people that I meet later in life and marriage and children.

    This is fun ! Famous is a general term and "I" was not famous in that sense but famous in the way that "I" was in an environment where fame was ( people, geographically ) so I don't know if that counts but never mind, I wanna do this too :)

    1. No
    Someone with fame had a nickname for "me" and I could not find it anywhere Then a very close friend of his wrote that it was his friend's special nickname for "me", it was not in articles, just this friend remembering it. You don't wanna know all the ways I had tried before to type, search that nickname thinking it was a short and peculiar name for parents to name their child :rolleyes:

    2. No.
    I ran from it. :eek: They wanted me to be a model when I was a kid and growing up, but I didn't wanna. I was uncomfortable, cornered when people would say I was pretty and touch my head or hair. I had flashbacks later in life of a man from past life doing that to her and he was obsessed by her looks which she never got because there were pretty, beautiful girls everywhere, around them but he was hooked on her. He was jealous and "owned" her and she was tense, just a little afraid but tried to fake it as if she was not. Sorry, I sound like a party pooper:oops:

    The time frame was always familiar to me in the way that I felt at home in older people's homes that still had things from that era. I still miss certain things I know was used then :)

    I have caught myself being for a few seconds surprised in my current life why guests are in my kitchen ( which I would/will never let them know ).

    "I" used to have a small kitchen and the dining table was always outside the kitchen.

    Further back in time having been a female the kitchen was only the place where the one doing the dinner was, not guests.

    3. Yes, but I did not want to ha ha... ( nightmare, flashbacks, meditation ) . Looking and finding validating proof to myself from her private memories in books, photographs, films. I was never in it to proof it to someone else. I have had a hard time just proving it to myself and although I am still almost sure there is always the question for other answers how this could be.

    4. Overwhelmed. Many thoughts. Many emotions. Love. Grief. A relief that I was not making it up, that I was no lunatic. Still not 100% convinced. Those kind of thoughts, still have them at times.

    Still troublesome when the past kept pulling me back, when there was no finish to the story. Not as focused in my own identity and life because the other life was like a shadow that now and then made/make it self known with flashbacks that I could/can not control.

    A relief that people close to me that had passed on was then maybe not gone but that the spirit still lives :)

    Interesting questions.

    1. Had you heard of the name of your pl before you knew you'd been that person?
    Yes, since I was a little girl I like rock music, so inevitably I had to listen to her name many times. When I was a teenager I went to tribute band concerts. It was crazy to see all the people screaming her name! That name always seemed like a familiar name to me, but I never investigated her life in depth.

    2. Did you have an interest in their line of work/way of life/country or era they lived in prior to researching?
    Line of work, no. I never liked his band. I never felt a positive feeling listening to his music. In fact, I can never finish hearing an album, so I stopped trying to listen to their songs. Way of life, maybe. I feel the same way, my personality remains the same. Country or era... Yes! Definitely yes.

    3. Was there any one moment that made you believe you'd lived that life or a series of evidence/memories?
    Yes.

    4. How did you feel when you worked it out?
    It wasn't easy for me to accept that I was that person. First I began to deny the evidence. I kept meditating, searching, and connecting things to prove it was true. I was happy when I managed to resolve some of my past traumas. I also understood that no matter how famous a person is, there are always problems. Usually people see success, glory, and fame, but behind that there can be a lot of suffering.

    Nowadays I think of famous people as simply ordinary people. Of course if you look across the spectrum there are some extraordinary deeds sometimes, both good and bad, but I also think its a bit of a quirk of fate which means one person acquires fame or notoriety, while others of a similar lifestyle are lost into obscurity.

    The good part of fame, from a research perspective, is that there may be plentiful data of various types available to study. The bad side is that there's a belief that the deceased are long since turned to dust, and so it's ok to say all manner of things about them. To be fair, even the living, once in the public eye, can be subjected to endless scrutiny, their lives analysed like a laboratory specimen, with scarcely a thought that they are people.

    Some are elevated to virtual sainthood while others are condemned for their flaws, but I tend to think for the most part these assessments tend to reflect something else, they tell something about the society or perhaps the individual from which the assessments originate, rather than giving any particular insight about the subject.

    Yes, I think famous people are ordinary people. Many times in the forum I have expressed my opinion on this. I forgot to say that what I said was my personal experience and my opinion according to what I lived, obviously. I'm sorry if I fell into victimhood, or if I "sanctified" famous past lives. My point was to be neutral on the subject. I'll be more careful when I talk about generalities.

    I agree.

    @Thyme - There's no need to apologise for expressing your views, I understood it was your opinion and reflecting your own experiences.

    Actually I'm nowadays irritated that I still find occasional references to my own past life, deceased more than a century ago. It bugs me because they often distort the facts and reinterpret things differently every few years, so many different opinions as time goes by, that's why I consider it really doesn't illuminate the past at all, it only describes present-day obsessions.

    1. Had you heard of the name of your pl before you knew you'd been that person?
    Yes I had. Very very surprised to tell you the truth as I was always drawn to Richard III and I thought I would have been just the serving girl or someone, I was Elizabeth of York and married to Henry Tudor. He was one of my first recalls and I had a shock seeing him.


    2. Did you have an interest in their line of work/way of life/country or era they lived in prior to researching? Yes I still do but as I’m currently still undergoing PLR, i cannot do much reading and I have to get someone else to check my recalls, dreams and visions.


    3. Was there any one moment that made you believe you'd lived that life or a series of evidence/memories?
    I was always drawn to Medieval and Tudor England. I had flash backs at a couple of castles in the past.


    4. How did you feel when you worked it out? Very very surprised as I did not remember Henry Tudor at all at first.
    I knew I’d had several past lives and this one seemed important.
    I don’t think Henry Tudor or myself (Elizabeth of York) are famous as such but I was there with Richard III and he, well everyone knows whom he is/was. I was just happy I discovered some things and how they are affecting this life.

    1. Had you heard of the name of your pl before you knew you'd been that person?

    Yes. I always knew who they were even in my research when I was in my teens.

    2. Did you have an interest in their line of work/way of life/country or era they lived in prior to researching?

    Yes. I knew that life was simple back then and there was no such thing as money ( Ancient Egypt)

    3. Was there any one moment that made you believe you'd lived that life or a series of evidence/memories?

    Always loved sand and big open, spread out castles. Also loved Ancient Egypt and the royal families close to King Tutankhaten (-amun)

    4. How did you feel when you worked it out?

    Pretty shocked. I mean, being still admired after 3,400 years is pretty compelling.

    I have had two, although one was not "famous" until after her death and many centuries had passed. The other is so convoluted today as to who she was, what I remember and what is told is not really the same thing. Like Speedwell, it's all in a manner of looking. The second life I missed my family more than the work I was remembered for.


    1. Had you heard of the name of your pl before you knew you'd been that person?
    No, didn't know anything about her at all. American teaches very little about Eastern cultures./Sort of, but not explicitly a name so much as a title/deeds.

    2. Did you have an interest in their line of work/way of life/country or era they lived in prior to researching?
    Other then very Americianzied Chinese food and decor that had nothing to do with the time period, no. When they found the place where she lived in archeology, I was asked about it but it took 4 or 5 years before I was even curious to look at the site at all. So no interest, and still very little./Sort of. I was always very interested in her line of work even before I knew what it really was and was drawn to things from it and knew what they were for even though I had no connection to it in this life.

    3. Was there any one moment that made you believe you'd lived that life or a series of evidence/memories?
    A Buddhist temple had an item of hers on loan (she was not Buddhist...lived before it occurred) as a cultural exhibit...I told a monk about the item in passing relating whose it was (it was labeled with the Dynasty not as a personal effect) and a bit of its history. He investigated and had the aha moment, I did not./I told my mother I was her when I was 2. As I got older, I went to where she lived and freaked out a tour guide from the knowledge I should not have had (and got kicked off the tour and offered more then my fee back)...there has been many incidences from childhood on that are hard to explain if I was not her.

    4. How did you feel when you worked it out?
    Extremely disturbed. I will admit I am her sometimes, mostly I don't mention it or mention it in generalities./If I think about her, mostly sad for me in THIS life, lol. She had a large close family and I have none except my children and husband since my parent died.
