The idea that a person’s soul, essence and personality can return in a new physical form after death has brought comfort and peace to people around the world. In fact, dating back more than 3,000 years, the concept of reincarnation is thought to have been discussed by everyone from the ancient Greeks to Celtic Druids.
So how can you tell whether you’ve lived a life before? Let’s take a look at just a few of the signs you may be experiencing memories of a past life:
You feel as though you’ve known a particular person before
Have you ever met someone for the very first time only to feel as though you’ve known one another for years? This could be a sign that you’ve been friends in a past life. This could be a sign of a strong relationship ahead.
However, if you’re experiencing overwhelmingly negative vibes towards a person, it could be wise to steer clear. If you’ve lived a past life, you may benefit from really accurate intuition. You got to know so many people in your past life and this wisdom and knowledge is starting to creep through into your present life.
You often experience Deja Vu
We all experience déjà vu from time to time and so it can be hard to determine whether this spooky feeling is simply an unusual human emotion or the result of emerging memories from a past life.
Triggered by sights, sounds, smells, tastes, emotions or experiences, déjà vu can help us relive the past. Sometimes it involves hidden memories from our present life but other times it could indicate some crossover with our former selves. A sudden but unexplainable feeling of déjà vu could mean that you’re in exactly the right place at the right time.
Irrational fears when visiting a place you’ve never been before
If you’ve ever visited a new city or landmark only to be overcome with an irrational fear, perhaps you experienced a traumatic or upsetting event there in a past life. When you return home, do some research into the history of the place you visited and see if anything helps to tease hidden memories from your consciousness.
You have vivid recurring dreams or nightmares
The dreams we have can signify a number of different things but, if you keep having recurring dreams or nightmares that put you in a different decade or century, you could be dreaming of a past life. Perhaps you passed away with unfinished business or your memories are creeping back into the present day. If you’re struggling to make sense of your dreams, why not keep a dream diary and record everything you can remember as soon as you wake up? Carry your diary with you in case you’re reminded of your dreams as you go about your day.
