    Define legitimate past life?

    In my youth I had memories of a past life that eventually I could prove were memories that were from my grandmother before my mother was born and memories from my mother before I was born. They were real to me and were of an age I had not lived to be yet so seemed to reflect a past life yet were clearly memories from their lives. Yet also clearly memories created before the conception of my mother by my grandmother or me by my mother but before the birth of either of us. Yet equally no "Past-Life memories I can recall of their lives after the births. Yet clearly the memories were past life of some degree though not mine except to the extent of some sort of blood memory carried down to me. Yet that would suggest that it was only via mother to child as being a son I could not pass such a memory to any child I father.

    I have two potential past life memories that by time line would prove impossible. In one I know I die on an old S style submarine sometime during the early years of WWII. Yet I also have memories of dying on an early style of B-17 bomber and when the wind blows right I can mentally find myself back as a waist gunner. Smell the fumes from the engine, hear the chatter over the circuit, see the fighter rolling as it is diving in upon my side of the plane, fill the bullets strike me in the chest and watch the muzzle flashes and it was approaching, feel the wind pull at my body as it gets heavy and I hang out the side of the plane and the smoke and oil from the burning prop washes out behind us. Clues to the B-17 tell me it is an early model and early in the war but I am assuming it is Europe could be the Pacific as well. Yet how can I be two people with two memories of dying during the early days of WWII? One clearly in the air war over Europe and the other probably somewhere in the Pacific theatre based upon knowing it was an early S style of boat.

    The other also is recalled by sounds of the wind and flapping of banners. In that one I am part of a mounted escort of some type and we are in a mountain area. I know we are an escort and I carry a flag or banner as I hold a staff and a blue and white banner is attached to it. A ringlet is attached to my boot near the ankle and the pole shaft passes through the ringlet to help steady the pole arm. There is also a ringlet near my waist that the rod could pass through like a jousting ring but when riding with the staff this way the staff would not pass through it but in combat it would. We don't have a heavy armor but a chain mail and wear a heavier coat over it. We're passing through an uprising pass I know for the wind is pushing down upon us and the flags are pulling heavy against the breeze when we come under attack from the flanks. I know I get hit with a couple of arrows but it is my horse going down under me and the horse next to me trapping my leg that causes my weapon & banner to shatter on impact with the ground to splinter and break apart and I get killed as the broken shaft is driven through my side and the horse rolls. I don't recall any swords or such so reminds me of a light brigade type outfit, definitely not a heavy brigade but the banner is unlike anything i've ever found in any history book and the weapon is unlike anything I've found associated with the lancer type weapon or other light brigade weapons.

    But I admit most pagan so called past life recalls have little to no similarities to documented past life recalls that are researched. Far to often it more like the guided recalls of the late 80's where some one is aiding them in discovering those past lives that so closely reflect the planted memories and false regression memories. It used to amuse and amaze me just how many of those past lives you could go and find in obscure movie scripts. That or the so called past life tarot spreads that tend to reveal the unfinished business that has to be resolved in this lifetime in order for them to move forward. But I have always found it interesting how the past life recall and planted memory cases and issues of planted false memories of the late 80's suddenly became so popular in the 101 books of the 90's and later as a basic staple of pagan books.

    No, I don't think that I ever have a past life before.

    It's not the fact that I had a past life, it's what life it was that makes things hard, but thanks for your reply but my experiences have been very different started off when i was 15 and the visons and dreams kept getting stronger ,Even checked with 2 psychics to be sure and both without being given any info from myself confirmed it. If that wasn't enough I consulted the runes and asked them what my name was picked runes 1 after the other and they spelt the name from the past life, and I don't mean I continuously picked until it was correct either.. when the last rune came I nearly fainted, think it's time I stopped trying to convince myself at any cost that its wrong which believe me i have tryed to and just live with it..But at least I now no that there's a very good and obvious reason why humans don't get to keep their memories of previous lives..Shame I didn't get the choice apparently my patron goddess wanted me to know this for a reason..

    But by most accounts right there yours is off. Theirs starts as early as their earliest memories and seldom change. Take the case of the twins in England, they have the same memories of being sisters in the same family and having the same connections to physical items in the house hold from the very beginning. Take the Watseka case in Illinois again the same, right from birth and the same recalls and earliest memories, even the cases out of India where the child recalls being married to the woman never changes as his earliest memory and the things he recalls. The case of the woman in England who recalls living in the old castle and describes passages and routes through areas that no longer exists but when taken to the castle can show where they once were and old structures and remains exists to mark where some of the areas once were located do remain.

    Pulling runes for many is like doing a tarot reading for yourself, many will not do it simply from the fact of the belief we can via our own energy influence what we pull. Ever seen a rune jump? Ever seen the bones jump? I have not because a particular one was supposed to be drawn but because the reader was intent upon it being drawn. They claim they were not influencing them but they were, in part because they were going into their bag with an idea about themselves to begin with. Even casting upon the ground or cloth they were casting for themselves not for another. I suppose one of the reason many of my generation and training were taught to do it initially blind folded so we didn't see anything until it was all laid out. No anticipation, no expectation, no emotion, no nothing just us and the currents guiding our hands into the stream so we grabbed an energy pulse not something physical initially.

    Psychics I'll be honest and upfront I doubt most of them as seen far to many cold readers. Pretty darn good cold reader myself and any person who says they gave little to nothing usually means they gave quite a bit but didn't realize it. If you've been to them more than once then you've given a lot of info and the psychic has been picking up things about you from the get go. It's one of the oldest pallor games in the business.

    Whether you have a past life experience I really do not know. Looking at what many recognize as probable past life recalls your response here doesn't match what they describe and how they describe them.

    But from a shamanic perspective what you describe does match how some guides will attempt to teach a lesson or purpose. A life event or function that is repeated over and over in dream time where you are expected to experience it and learn from it and undergo a change in character or mental outlook because of it. Many times beginning after some traumatic event in life or some stage in life where your training is stepping up in scale or severity. Sometimes associated with a shamanic dream death where your life is ended in a violent manner and your body ripped apart and put back together and your given a new name and identity. Other times it's a series of dream stages that seem to grow in severity and clarity and may take years where there present, fade away then reappear years later to begin or continue.

    For instance I physically died in my youth. Yet to some of my family that was my second death for I had dreams of being born into this life and recall sitting in a place waiting to go into my mother to be born. I don't recall the place I was waiting in other than I was with my ancestors and was sort of floating while they waited with me. Then I was changing and felt weight is all I can describe it as and fell into a sleep before I came into this world. So to some of them I had died then was born. Then died again later in the hospital and was brought back into this life. Yet I carried memories of dying in the High Lands of Scotland long ago under a full moon and that was one of the thing my family spoke to me about as I waited to be born into this life.

    I used to speak to my mother about that memory of the high lands or searching for a broach all my life. I finally found the broach as it belonged to my grandmother's line and came from Scotland. Long changed from the kilt pin it started out as but once I touched it I no longer felt the need to seek it out.

    Sorry this has drifted about a bit.

    Your patron may be wanting you to know or seek something but it doesn't mean it's a past life but maybe something else.

    Thanks for your opinion but like I said it's gone far beyond being able to ignore it as all coincidence, what are the chances of of pulling out rune after rune and it spelling the exact name that 2 different psychic mediums have told you, I was not trusting of psychics before so I asked for proof that they had seen my life and they did and there is no other way that anyone could have known what they did, as for only starting to recall past lives at 15 everyone has past lives but shouldn't be known, but sometimes bits and pieces get through, there is no set date or time as to when these will appear or for what reasons if any
    As for some of the cases I am very sceptical of anyone who profits or gains publicity from such claims, For personal reasons I will not say what events the readings spoke of but to give you an idea it was the same as someone that had never met you being able to tell you exactly what you were doing 20 years ago, not only that but even knowing what you were wearing and who you were with. This along with the fact that they could tell me everything from my dreams and other odd experiences, right down to the visons that I saw in my scrying mirror all add up. But like I said iam not arguing whether It is a previous life as I already know it is, I was searching for someone that has also gone through the same, but thanks for your post all the same..

    The concept of "past lives" and prior existences can be so... tricky. Muddled. I have found that when a group of people start digging and imagining and reinforcing each others ideas, well, it frequently turns out to have been a story they all built together, so it felt "true", but ultimately had no basis in reality, and fell completely apart once the people went their separate ways. I think it can be tricky like that, when you feel a bond with someone, it's only natural to think perhaps it's from a past life, and you start taking any flash of imagination seriously, building a narrative around it. I try to keep this in mind. I also think it's easy to use divination tools (or even meditation) to attempt to delve into this topic, only to be led astray by our preconceptions, experiences, and imagination. Like, maybe your dream about being a cat was a memory from a past life as a cat. Or maybe it was because you recently watched a documentary about the secret lives of cats, and your brain internalized that in a way that was meaningful to you. Or hell, maybe your urge to watch the documentary was actually a tugging from your memories from back when you were an orange tabby and lived in Texas. It's tricky.

    On the other hand, I think that things which intuitively include only yourself, and which fit well into established understandings of history, and which make no claim to specialness or fame, can absolutely be past life experiences, and are unlikely to be harmful if they are not real. I personally have had reactions to certain things since I was a young child, which in retrospect seem to indicate a particular experience in the past coupled with fuzzy feelings and yearnings. The short version would be that I have a powerful reaction to air raid sirens, be they in media or real life, and I have intuitive reason to believe I was a small child in a place that experienced repeat bombings in WWII. I think I probably died as a small child in a bombing. It's completely plausible, because many people (including children) endured and were even killed by such bombings. I don't think there was anything special about me; I think it was simply a life.

    Are you sure the S boat death is during wartime? A handful of them were lost in the 20s via collision with other ships.

    From what I've been able to trace that is the most likely time frame. I could find 4 S boats were lost early at sea but only 1 was unsalvaged but it lost no lives. Of those 4 none of them matched the conditions that are present in the memories. 6 were scrapped between the wars. 7 were lost during WWII but only 1 to actual enemy actions. But the problem is trying to match the memories and such to actual survivor information and boat specifics. I've even tried matching it to other boats that might have been named with an S name like Sculpin for instance and the crew called it an S-boat or S-girl. I know from my time on the boats there were a series of boats that had names that started all started with S that were called S-girls but none of them were lost and they are modern boats but I was alive during those so highly unlikely.

    The other thing I can't entirely rule out is the person with the S-boat could have been on a boat but didn't die on a boat. But the boat was what registered the most on his life so that is the stronger memory. I served on a few different types of ships but the boats I served on have stronger memories for me than the Cruiser or the Amphib did. So if I pass a memory to an incarnation into another life for instance would the boats be there but not the Cruiser and Amphibious ships?

    To be honest, I don't believe in past lives. I just don't see the connection of focusing another person that doesn't have any relations to me at all.
