Do you believe you have lived before ? What makes you feel this way ? Do you know who you were in a past life ? Why or why not to you believe in this ?

Yes I believe in past lives. Have you ever known the really young person that is very mature for his or her age. Or, the older person that seems like they got stuck in their early 20's I believe this is from our past lives you have old souls and young souls in my belief. No one ever told me to believe this way I just always have as long as I could remember.

Yes I know exactly what you mean . My five year old seems so much older then she is and has been like this since the day she was born . She has so much talent for one so young and it is almost as if she has done these things before and that is why they are so much easier for her . I have often wondered if maybe she is not an old soul and has lived here many times before :) Thank you for your response .

I do believe in past lives. I had one odd experience in which I vividly pictured myself being shot in a back as a fleeing Jew in WWII Germany. It was so real it was scary.... as I was falling I felt, "so this is what it feels like to die." That isn't the only reason I belive that. The other is spiritual / religious. I have the strong feeling that life/s are like going through 'grades' in school. As we go through 1st grade, we learn lessons on sharing, cutting with a sissor, starting reading. When the lessons are learned we pass to the next grade. If we don't learn the lessons, we stay in that grade repeating the lessons until we finally learn them. Part of all this is my belief that there is a God and that this God is good and fair. I can't believe that God would give a person his only chance for life ever lasting and deal him a really 'terrible hand'. If heaven or hell is eternal - "for ever and ever" - then to give someone a few years to figure it all out and only one chance at getting it right, it doesn't make sense. :-) WEllllll that is at least my opinion. :-) (by the way... I do not relish the idea of having to do the same thing over and over again until I get it right. I worry that something like the movie Ground Hog Day could be right.

Actaully I share a lot of your beliefs as well . I have never had a sense that I was someone else in a past life but have seen things in my children that have made me wonder if they really did do things before . My youngest is terrified of water and always has been since the day she was born and the same with myself and I have often wondered if maybe in a past life if we possibly drowned and this is where the fear comes from . Thank you for your response .

Funny you say you were afraid of water. My daughter was terribly afraid of water and there was no logical reason. She would SCREAM bloody murder as we tried to introduce her to water.

That is the way my daugher is and has been like this since the day she was born . We can get her in the tub now that she is three but if any water gets in her face she starts to hyper-ventilate and there has never been a logical explaination for this .

I don't think that I have lived before. Though i have some dreams of being somebody else but I don't have that strong a conviction to really believe it.

I dunno but sometimes i want to believe, there is no written proof either in science or in bible that's why i am not sure that it is possible to have a past life, in other religions they do belive.... I have said that sometimes i believe, it is because i have meet somebody, at the very first that we meet it seems that we have a strong connection,connection that i seems that we know each other very well, Sometimes we're thinking maybe if there's a past life maybe we're husband and wife. He can feel if i am not ok,even into his dreams he sees me, sometimes i cant understand why but whatever it is, it is good to know that i have known this person

Maybe because i read an article about reincarnation and every one of us has each pastlife and i really laugh when i know that i was a dog in my past life. Thats why i really love dogs.

I don't know WHY I believe it but it just always made sense to me. I also don't know who I was before in other lives (I don't think most only come back once).
