I think I read somewhere when we are reincarnated we tend to use names or choose names that link us with our past. Any truth to this?
I can't see how that makes any sense at all because our parents usually name us. We have no choice because we were a 'bit young' to have any idea of what a name even is. A 'nick name' we chose when we are older may have some bearing on a past life. A name might apply if our parents were close to us in a prior incarnation. Unless I am missing something this makes no sense to me at allsarajaney said:I think I read somewhere when we are reincarnated we tend to use names or choose names that link us with our past.

LOLO Me too...only I am also allergic to bees...so much so I have to carry an epipen. So I am allergic to myself. Go figure.Deborah, however, is an ancient Hebrew name, from an earlier Egyptian name meaning "bee", the bee was a symbol of power and nobility, and I do have an Egyptian past life, but still.....
It makes perfect sense to me..., and when I was speaking of names I primarily meant last names. I'll have to find the article I read but basically the point was that before we reincarnate, there may pass many years and that we are conscious beings and choose who we want to be born to and that we can sometimes be attracted to names, races or religions that attach us to our past lives...and that with the help of our spiritual Masters, we choose lives that tend to be the same or connected from life to life, meaning in one life.. if you are a lock smith.. your last name may be Lock or Smith, or you may be a Miller and worked in a lumber yard or with wheat etc etc...it's not been said to happen all the time but it can and has.. It's not fact obviously nor is it proven but again it's a theory based upon certain past life accounts. For instance.. my maiden name was York.. my mothers maiden name was Crawford.. as silly as it may seem to you all, obviously with some of the comments, it is plausible seeing my intense attraction to both England and Scotland. Personally and in my humble opinion, with not much being known about past lives and reincarnation, with many theories and nothing scientifically proven or disproven, I'd say some theories or thoughts shouldn't be laughed at or blown off, because really none of us know for certain what things in our present life tie us to our past lives. Opening your minds to new ways to regress might even help you fit pieces of the puzzle together. For instance... I have asthma.. I've read things like present day ailments such as asthma could be an account of possible suffocation or a loss of oxygen in some way. It also explains allergies, loss of limbs, birthmarks etc. Here's the link to that http://www.healpastlives.com/future/rule/ruplpror.htm Also things like your current problems in life be it financial, in love, etc can be repeated over and over until you learn why you have the problems you do in this life by connections with your past life.. like I have money troubles trouble with savings and medical debt due to a special needs child.. why this may not have anything at all to do with a pst life, to me it's something that needs to be looked intosmith07 said:I can't see how that makes any sense at all because our parents usually name us.

Exactly! That was my point entirely... I think that it's very possible we have a say over some aspects of our next lifeYellow Roses said:Smith-
I do think that in some cases the spirit about to be born does influence the name. A friend I used to work with told me a story about one of her children. (She had 9). She was in the hospital before he was born and dozed off for a few minutes from sedatives. A little boy suddenly stood before her, stamped his foot, and said "Name me Jeffrey, I want to be Jeffrey!"
She had planned to call the baby another name, and had never considered Jeffrey, but when he came out, that is the name she gave him, and he has always liked his name. She said it suits him perfectly.
