Hi everyone! I am new here and, to be honest, had little interest in past lives until a few months ago. One night, I had a strange experience. I was still conscious, but also not "awake". I saw (dreamt?) a rather long sequence of events in which I was present, but not as ME. I am unsure whether this was a past life or not, but it really felt familiar, so I think it might have been. It was sometime in the late 18th, perhaps early 19th century England. I was a boy (notable because I am a woman now) who was apprenticed to a dock-master. My name was John or Jeremy or something else that started with a "J". I was lonely a lot of the time because few others my age were on the docks regularly enough to befriend. Those who were were usually cabin boys, young sailors, etc who would leave for months at a time. As I got older, the man I was apprenticed to, who had become a sort of uncle-figure to me, died, and I became quite bitter. Unfortunately, it seems I did some not very nice things to those around me-- which I would never think of today; I couldn't control myself in the dream, though. I also remember getting married at some point, though I don't think it was happy. What I am wondering now is how to find out whether this was an actual past life memory or just a strange dream? If a past life, how would I go about getting more information on it? Thank you all.
