Past Life Experiences
Hello everyone, I just kind of woke up and started thinking about this, so, bear with me ^_^'

Does anyone here believe in past life experiences?
If so, do you think that you have had any?
What were you, what did you do?
Has anyone here ever been regressed to find out?

If a past life helps to mould us into who we are today, what do you think Sadako did in her past life, and, what would she be doing in her current one?

This probably sounds like some kind of school essay, but I really am genuinely curious about it. Personally, I do believe in Past Lives. I have some some very strange quirks to my personality that I can't really explain otherwise.
But what do you all think? :p

Re: Past Life Experiences
Me and me family (bein wiccan an all) do believe in pst lives and such - but i dont have a clue what i was!!!! My Nan often messes ad says - "You must have been a victim of sweeny todd - why else would you like your hair like that!!"

As for Sadako and her past lives im thinkin the present one might be Mais baby - and mai bein sadakos mum (maybe her idea from beyond the grave to right the wrongs done to sadako and er) - and her boyfriend from RING 0 is none other tan...YOICHI!!!

......ive stopped makin sense havent i?

Re: Past Life Experiences
I currently do not believe in past lives, because, personally, I have no reason to. (I have no reason to 'disbelieve' it, either)
But I'm always open to fresh input.

I cannot understand my existence entirely as of now, and I don't know if I will ever be able to do so, but I think that consciousness is our own 'mind trap', which prevents us from reaching that understanding...

...and who asked me, anyway...?

Re: Past Life Experiences
I don't believe in past lives, but I'll admit to having frequent bouts of inexplicable déjà vu. I find the concept very interesting.

Re: Past Life Experiences
Yeah, it's the unexplainable deja vu that I find interesting as well. I often see places I have never seen been before in my dreams, and then find myself there a couple of months later. The brain definatly has some psychic ablility, it's just a lot of people are not susceptable to it. That said, I am well aware that there are more than a few fruit loops claiming to have this power.

Maybe psychics are an advanced form of human being. Evolution is always continuing, maybe this is the future ...a bit like X Men I suppose :lol

Re: Past Life Experiences
OK this doesnt have anything to do with me but my good friend frequently dreams of ppl she doesnt know, or herself walking around wearing oldish clothes...
I find this topic intriguing...

Re: Past Life Experiences
Makes me wonder if perhaps we inherit fragments of knowledge/memories from our ancestors when we're developing before birth. Kinda crazy, but think of it, I mean we inherit genetric traits from our parents/ancestors - why not memories/feelings?

Re: Past Life Experiences
My Grandmother is a quite remarkable psychic, and once she read my mother's Akashic Records. My mother found out that in one of her past lives, a couple hundred years ago, she was a man who was having an affair with a married woman. Of course this escalated to obsession, then he kidnapped his lover in a plan to escape with her and live somewhere away from the scandal of their affair. He put her into a shipping crate to board a boat (create the illusion that he left town without her). He was captured before departure and killed. They didn't find his lover until the next day; She had suffocated inside the crate.

Messed up.

Did you know that Tibetan Buddhists believe that if you have done bad things for your karma, you become reincarnated as a woman? Jasies.... if everyone had good karma, the human race would become extinct!

Re: Past Life Experiences
I had the strangest episode of deja vu the other night while watching The Happiness of the Katakuris for the first time. About two-thirds of the way through I suddenly knew exactly what was going to happen for the next minute or so. It was very peculiar, nearly as strange as the film itself;)

Re: Past Life Experiences
Being the extreme dullard that I am, I haven't experienced any hints at past lives, or deja vu for that matter.

I do have an awful lot of really, REALLY messed up dreams though. And not the good kind.

Re: Past Life Experiences
Sometimes before something happens... I know it will.
Sometimes when something happens, I have the strange feeling that I had once experienced it or dreamt of it.

Re: Past Life Experiences
I had Dejà Vu before, but I think that the brain has the ability to duplicate the experience at the same instant that it is perceived. Since our brain pulls off all sorts of tricks, I don't get surprised it can even create memories all on it's own...

I don't think that the brain is THAT 'reliable', even though it's everything we got...

Re: Past Life Experiences
Yeah, I heard that was related to brain synapse lasping. That your brain records an instant in time twice and that, due to a synapse misfire, it fools your brain into thinging it is seeing something it saw 24-48 hours ago.
Though I do belive in past lives. I have never myself experienced any prior history. However, my Husband and I genuinely felt we had known each other prior to our first meeting. Its a very STRONG feeling like we have spent countless years together.
